Alresford - Intensive Driving Couses
Intensive Driving Courses in Alresford
The traditional way of taking driving lessons has been an hour or two lessons a week and then when your driving instructor feels you are ready to take your test you apply. As you get nearer to your test date then the number of lessons you take will probably increase. This does work for a lot of people but it can take months and even a year plus to get to your test date.
With Bumpers Intensive Driving Courses we advise you when the next available driving test is in the Alresford area and then work backwards to calculate how many hours you need to undertake an intensive driving course.
With Bumpers Intensive Driving Courses you are in control as you decide whether to have 4 hours, 3 hours or 2 hours driving lessons it is whatever best works for you!
The Bumpers Intensive Driving Course ensures you have a test at the end of your lesson period with no gaps and you know when your test date is before you start your driving lessons with us.
We find that our intensive driving courses increase your ease of learning to drive and with having a regular daily lesson reduces the time in having to go over areas you would have learnt in the previous lesson.
We teach you to drive not just to pass a test!
Pass in a WEEK not 14 months!

What People Say
Your Driving Test Centre
Banbury Driving Test Centre
The Driving Test Centre is located around busy urban and rural roads where bends may be difficult to navigate due to oncoming vehicles. Small residential roads often feature on the driving test to give the driving examiner an understanding of your ability to deal with oncoming vehicles on narrow lanes. Maidstone has a lot of "A" class roads and some dual carriageways, so an understanding of speed limits is vital. Make sure you are happy with speeds.
