Popular with learners of all ages, intensive courses in either a manual or automatic vehicle make it possible to drive within just 5 days when normally it could take up to 14 months to learn when taking a 1 hour lesson every week. 

Our Intensive driving lessons are bespoke, individually designed to suit you and your lifestyle. Spread the hours between the booking date and test, take the lessons in the week preceding your test or if you prefer, take the first some hours over a number of weeks and the rest in the week of the driving test.

We design the course, YOU learn to drive.

Karen's School of Motoring is dedicated to teaching people to drive safely, in an enjoyable atmosphere.  Our intensive driving lessons are designed for any stage of your driving career from nervous beginners to re-test's, from refresher lessons to advanced or fleet training.  There is a suitable driving course for everyone. 

Course structures are individually based but as a guide, the 8 to 16 hour course is suitable for someone who has recently taken a test and failed whilst the longer courses are suitable for someone who has little or no driving experience. 

If you are unsure which course you require please phone and speak to our friendly staff who will be happy to advise you, or they can arrange for one of our highly qualified instructors to see you for an assessment lesson to estimate more accurately the number of hours tuition you need to drive safely and of course to pass your driving test.
