Frequently asked questions..
1. Are the instructors fully qualified?
We only use driving instructors who are fully qualified to DVSA - UK government Driver and Vehicle Standard Agency standards. We never use trainee driving instructors so you can have peace of mind that when you take your crash driving course, it will always be with a fully qualified driving instructor.
2. Do I need to pass my theory test before I book a crash driving course?
You do not need to pass your driving theory test before booking a crash driving course with us (except for the ‘pass my test in a week’ course). You can take driving lessons and your theory test at the same time which is the ideal way to learn how to drive as you will gain valuable practical, real life driving experience when taking your driving lessons which will help you to pass your theory test. However, you cannot book your practical driving test, until you have passed your theory test.
3. Is the cost of the theory test included in the cost of the crash driving course?
The cost of the driving theory test is not included in the crash driving course prices quoted on the web site. The cost to book a theory test is £23.00. We can book the test on your behalf, but the cost will be added to the overall price. Some of our longer courses include a theory but this is stated clearly during booking.
4. Is the cost of the practical driving test included in the cost of the driving course?
The cost of the practical driving test is included in the price of the crash driving course quoted on the web site. We also offer a second chance at a driving test should you fail first time, this is also included for FREE on most of our courses. Please check the individual course details.
5. Can i pass my driving test in a week with a crash course?
Yes it is possible to pass your driving test in one week but before you can do this you need to pass your driving theory test. Once you have passed your theory test then it is possible to pass your driving test in one week. For more information about how you can pass your driving test in a week contact us.
6. Will I be sharing a car with anyone else when taking my crash driving course?
You will not be car sharing with anyone else. All our crash/intensive courses are conducted on a 1-2-1 basis only so there will only be you and the driving instructor in the training vehicle.
7. How many driving lessons will I need to pass my driving test?
People’s ability to learn to drive is influenced by so many different factors, therefore it is difficult to say exactly how many lessons you will need to pass your test. The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) who conduct the UK driving test recommend an average of 45 - 55 hours tuition with an instructor plus 22 hours of private practice tuition, however taking a crash driving course can reduce this considerably as the learning is more intensive.
