Should you trust a guaranteed driving test pass
Lots of websites seem to advertise "guaranteed pass" courses of some description, but the simple fact is nobody can guarantee that you'll pass!
Guarantees or gimmicks?
The terms of such courses typically say, "We offer students taking our 'Guaranteed Pass Course' three attempts at the driving test".
However, this can NOT be a guaranteed pass driving course as some pupil's may need more than the three attempts.
When you look into the detail, you'll find that if you don't pass after the initial course, they may pay for any future tests you take with them or similar gimmicks.
Other "guarantees" involve a refund of your test fee, or a promise of paying for future driving test fees or some other similar token gesture - not a guarantee at all, just a hope of luck changing or the student giving up on their desire to drive.
Often driving schools will offer students taking Guaranteed Pass Courses THREE attempts at the driving test, all within the original price of the Guaranteed Pass Course.
Although students may not pass their test first time receive a further three hours of tuition before taking their test for the second time and an additional three hours tuition should they require a third attempt at the test.
Unfortunately, without taking a little extra structured training this is pretty much useless - especially considering that many of these courses are residential and so could be a long way to travel to. The cost of travelling back for the test would be outweighed by extra training, accommodation and rail or bus fares.
Some schools add further, "In the unlikely event that you fail to pass the driving test on your third attempt, it will be considered that we have fulfilled our obligation under the terms of the course and any further tuition and test costs must be paid for by the student".
On the other hand, you could find a good auto instructor in your area that offers an Intensive course or weekly lessons.
For those students that choose to learn to drive with a reputable driving school that offer a structured training programme based on individual needs, a successful driving test result can be achieved.
Passing the driving test involves many things but at the end of the day it falls on you doing everything right and having luck when things turn against you.
As far as guarantees go, we reckon this one will at least guarantee peace of mind.
