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. Intensive courses cover 5 hours of driving tuition per day following a structured syllabus.  We offer 3 day and 5 day courses on consecutive days or spread over 2-3 weeks.

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.

All pupils must be possession of a current Learners Permit for Group B before they can take tuition.

This is the learners responsibility and fees will not be refunded to a pupil who turns up for a course without the relevant permit.

CANCELLATION POLICY: At least 72 hours notice is required when cancelling a session, for all intensive course, at least 14 days notice is required, otherwise you may be charged.
