Semi-Intensive Driving Courses

People often think there are really only two ways to learn how to drive.

One of these is the standard method: a few hours each week of tuition, extending over a period of months or weeks. The lessons around your schedule are easy to fit, but the pace is slow. Mostly with large gaps between classes, you can spend a lot of your time going over what you've learned before— drag things even further and making the entire process more costly.

The second is through the crash course. You will continuously build up your new skills during a crash course, and you will usually have several hours of tuition per day— meaning you can complete your test in as little as a week. It implies, though, that you will have to set aside the time to take your course— which may mean taking time off work. This puts off some learners; others would just prefer a relaxed pace a little bit more.

There's a third option, luckily.

Start driving easily with a semi-intensive course

If you need to get on the road quickly but can still fit your lessons around your life, then you might find a semi-intensive driving course perfect for you.

The semi-intensive course is close to a full intensive course in structure but the tuition is more general. You can take daily classes, for example, but only spend a few hours in the car a day. Instead, each of your sessions may last for several hours, but only on weekends.

In practice, a semi-intensive driving course combines the speed of a crash course with typical lesson flexibility Learning to drive semi-intensively means you're not going to feel rushed: you're going to get your driving licence easily at a rate that suits you.
