I recommend Hassan of Skillz2Drive. I was already an experienced driver but i needed to become a UK driver. Over a... period of seven (Covid-interrupted) months, Hassan guided me through the rules and tricks of driving. Clearance, managing speed, roundabouts, maneuvers etc. Lessons were fitted into my busy schedule and i practically covered every road in Hastings, Ore and St Leonard's. Hassan pointed out the tricky places and carefully described how i could surmount them. All of this culminated in me passing my practical test at the first attempt, with only three minor faults. Hastings has a 42% first time pass rate but with Hassan and Skills2Drive; you too can pass at once.read more

Great style of teaching, super accommodating with fitting lessons in for me. I've always been quite nervous driving, and Hassan has helped me come on so much! 100% recommend him to anyone, but especially if you are nervous. THANKYOU HASSAN!!!!read more

Passed my driving test first time with John getting only 4 minor driving faults. Nothing but a professional service I... never had lesions rearranged or cancelled on me. I was treated professionally at all times and made comfortable even when making mistakes. I personally couldn’t have asked for a better instructor and if I’m honest I’m slightly gutted that I’ve passed as the service I received really was top notch. I would recommend Skillz2Drive and John to everyone I know because I believe if you want to pass quickly and be taught at a high standard then you should defiantly choose these guys.read more

My son passed with Julie. What a fantastic teacher, she was very supportive, down to earth and realistic with... expectations. Tyler came to skillz2Drive with previous experience from another instructor with another company. This instructor had said Tyler was ready for his test. Julie took him for an assessment lesson and it was clear that he needed a little more work before then. Julie was amazing, moving appointments around to accommodate us. His enthusiasm and motivation to pass was due to the continued support and encouragement Jules gave him. Thank you so much! Very highly recommendedread more

Passed my test with Mark Wilkins. When I first started my lessons I literally had no confidence at all, I was such a... nervous learner. Mark really brought me out of my shell, and I never felt any pressure at all. I honestly do not believe I would have passed my test with anyone other than Mark. He's so patient, and really encouraging! Thank you so much Skillz2drive!! �read more

I passed first time today with skillz2drive. I had Mark Wilkins as my teacher, and he was fantastic! I couldn't have... asked for a better person to teach me how to drive... He made me feel so relaxed and comfortable from day 1 and was always encouraging me. Thank You again for being so helpful and inspiring, I really do appreciate it. Now I'm finally on the road after just 15 hours of 'intense driving course' lessons, and I couldn't feel more free. If anyone want a driving instructor that is easy going, keeps you calm, encourages you, makes you feel at ease and just in general a really nice guy, then Mark is the person for you!read more

Intensive Driving Lessons

Here at Skillz2drive we offer the very best in intensive courses at the most competitive prices and we pride ourselves on our very high first time pass rate.
We have three standard intensive courses to choose from. Once our experienced driving instructors have completed an hour long assessment lesson we can help you decide how many hours would best suit you.
The length of time to complete your intensive course can vary from 1 to 8 weeks, this depends on if you have passed your theory test, along with the waiting times for the practical driving test, but we will try to keep this down to a minimum. All pupils must be in possession of a current provisional driving licence before the course commences.
Your first step in learning to drive is to get your provisional driving licence. To do this, you should visit a Post Office or DVLA online. Your application will take around three weeks to process, so if you are eager to learn to drive soon after your 17th birthday then make sure that you apply three months before. This is completely allowed, so don’t worry about applying early.

The next thing to do would be to commence your driving lessons. The average person takes around 43 hours when learning how to drive. However this is with some extra practice on the side. If you don’t want to book this many lessons then you could just book 20, however you would need to allow yourself a lot of practice time between lessons.

Your theory test will come in two halves. The first half is a 50-question multiple choice test. To pass, you need to achieve a score which is 43 or higher. For the second half, you will take a test on hazard perception. You will be shown 14 video clips which show various hazards; you will then score five points for every clip. The points you score will depend on how long you take to respond.

The top score you can get on this test is 75; however you only need to score 44 in order to pass. If you want to pass your theory test, then you need to complete the two halves. If you pass one half but then fail the other, you will have to redo both parts of the test again.

You will take your theory test on a computer, which is very easy and simple to use. You will also find that the DSA provides a two pack CD Rom collection that has all the questions you’ll need to pass, plus the clips, so you can help to prepare yourself beforehand.

You will take your theory test at a test centre, and this test must be completed before you commence your practical test.

Your Theory test can be booked at www.direct.gov.uk/motoring, or you can book it by telephone at 0300 200 1122.

Your practical test can be booked at www.direct.gov.uk/motoring, or by calling this number 0300 200 1122.

Before you start driving, you’ll need to perform an eye test. You’ll then be tested with some questions about vehicle safety. After this, you’ll be tested on your driving ability; this includes two questions about reversing and an emergency stop. You should note however that only one out of three students are asked to do this.

The driving test will only last around 40 minutes. During this time, your instructor will take note of various skills that determine your driving ability. You are allowed to make up to 15 minutes of faults before you fail the test, however if you make more than 16 minutes then you have a guaranteed fail. If you perform a dangerous fault, then you will automatically fail.

Before you start your driving test, you should make sure that you bring the following documents.

Theory certificate

Your photo card license

Your old style paper license (if you have this, you must take your own driving license (signed) and a valid passport)

It is also a great idea to bring your confirmation letter, which states your pass date and time in case there are any questions. The more information you can bring with you, the better, as it can really help to speed up the process when obtaining your license.
