It can be easy to look at intensive driving lesson sets such as a one week driving course and think that it will be more expensive than a regular set of lessons. You may feel that because you get to do more lessons closer together that it will be more expensive but this is very often not the case.
Firstly some intensive driving courses are cheaper because you will be offered a discount on a bulk set of lessons. It is therefore worth checking whether there is a course like that near you as it could really help to keep the costs down.
Then you could find that you will not need as many lessons. This is because you are being taught much more often. If you have lessons spread apart, as many people do, then you can forget things from lesson to lesson. This means that you have to go over things more times so that they stick in your memory. However, having lessons closer together means that you do not have as long to forget things and you should learn a lot more quickly. This will mean that you will not have to buy so many driving lessons and therefore they will cost you less overall.
It can be worrying that you might not be able to afford a chunk of lessons so close together though or to buy them in a lump sum which you may have to do when booking an intensive course. However, if it saves you money overall then you can just hold off any lessons until you have saved up for the lot of intensive lessons and your test. Then you can pay it all at once and get it all over and done with. It may feel like you are waiting a long time before having a lesson, but it will end up cheaper in the long run and you will probably pass your test at an earlier date than you would by doing lessons less often.
So take a look at what opportunities there are to do intensive driving courses in your local area. You should find that there is quite a selection with some places offering a week’s course for drivers with some experience or a bit longer for those that are just beginning. It could be well worth it as you could end up saving money and passing your test much more quickly.
