Intensive Driving Course - worth it? Watch

    In the Summer, I'm thinking about doing an intensive driving course because during my academic year, I don't have time to go for regular lessons as I'm occupied with Uni and Work. If I'm not at Uni, I'm at work. If I'm not at Work, I'm at Uni.

    I have the Summer free from Uni, and planning to take time off work.

    My friends who have taken driving lessons and passed did the regular lessons, and on average, it took them from 6months - 1 year to pass. I really don't want to be learning to drive for that long as I need to start driving soon to help my mum out with ASAP.

    Have any of you done an intensive driving course (the ones where you have intensive, long lessons for like a week)?
    Do you reckon it's worth it?? I know it's a lot of money, but I do have it saved up from my job.

    Thanks!

    I wish I had done this.

    It is a great idea.

    You save time. I also think you will pick it up more quickly if you don't have week long gaps between lessons like I did.

    I feel instructors sometimes try to keep the process going longer than it needs to. A sense of urgency is a good thing.

    Good luck!
