The DVSA recommend a minimum of 46 hours tuition with a qualified driving instructor, plus 20 hours of private practice with an experienced driver. With an intensive driving course, the hours are needed are 42 – 48 hours with a course instructor and no private practice. To calculate the hours you need, simply deduct the amount of driving instructor hours you have had from 48 and then plus 6. You should then round this up to the nearest course we offer.
So, if you have had 20 hours with an instructor, you would need 22 + 6 = 28. The closest course to this is a 30-hour course. Or a 36-hour course if you are not a confident learner.
An intensive / crash driving course is the quickest way to complete your driver training to gain your full licence in the UK. This allows you to drive independently without supervision from the age of 17. In some cases, you may be able to take a driving test at 16 if you receive higher rate mobility allowance.
