Learn to Drive with Intensive Driving Lessons

Advantages of taking an Intensive Residential Course with COLLEGE DRIVE:

If you're looking to learn very quickly for work commitments or just for yourself, then an intensive course from COLLEGE DRIVE can help you learn quickly in a safe and controlled environment. 

Compared with hourly lessons you will require far less hours 'behind the wheel' as you will save time by not having to do the 'introduction/recap' every lesson and there is far less chance of forgetting things which is what tends to happen with a weeks gap between lessons. This is also a great boost for giving confidence to nervous people.


Let's consider the following as to why this style of learning is really effective: 


  • It is not untypical, for students who take one lesson per week to cease their driving lessons for a period of time as it's easy to get bored, and to lose interest.  Students who embark on intensive driving courses are also much more likely to complete their course than students who have dragged out learning extending over a year or more. 

  • The amount of learning that takes place during an intenisve course is on average 70% more effective than learning on lessons spaced out over weeks or months. It generally takes us time to re-orientate ourselves and get fully involved, (sometimes up to 15 minutes) before we are back to the level of concentration that is required for effective learning.  Also, when we are nearing the end of a driving lesson, we start to slack off, and operate at reduced efficiency before the end of the scheduled task.


  • The student's ability to remember from one week to the next, assuming that the student is having weekly driving lessons, also results in memory bleed off.  Alternatively, with an intensive course, the student can build on the knowledge learned and experience gained from the previous day. This simply means the amount of understanding that may evaporate, is greatly reduced so increasing the opportunity to develop more quickly.  

  • The same logic can be applied to the driving instructor.  The instructor's ability to focus and remember the student's learning points are greatly enhanced when the driving lessons are conducted over a shorter period of time.  Despite comprehensive records, the instructor has less chance of retaining the detailed data relating to a specific student when the period of learning is interrupted by teaching other students. The lesson structure, can be adapted and maintained more easily when he is dealing on a day to day basis with the same student.  Therefore the instructor's ability to deal with a student on intensive course is also greatly improved.  

  • Intensive courses are popular with learners of all ages, as these courses will be tailored to match the learner's expectations and time frame.  Intensive Driving Courses are especially useful to people with very little spare time in their normal schedule to fit in driving lessons.
