    If you want to pass by Christmas I think the best and more realistic option would be a intense course. I took one of these and passed my driving test I found that with a regular hourly instructor you spend more time at the roadside talking than you do driving where as an intense they teach you whilst on the move.... Good luck I hope you get it before Christmas

    Nice easy way to remember thanks last time I was on a 20mph road so that’s all I know
    Listen to the car as well. The car will tell you when to change gear. It'll start rumbling or making grunting noises and just sounding wrong, which is when you know to change gear. Normally when I accelerate, I wait for the car to build up to a certain noise level of rumbles before I change, then the rumbles go away but build up again if I need to change again.

    Which driving school? I might look into it. Did you have previous knowledge or outside practice?
