in Manchester, Stockport, Oldham & Tameside
Q. Does Manchester Driver Training book driving tests?
A. You can either book your own driving test using the DVSA online booking service or once your intensive course booking has been completed your allocated intensive instructor can help you with your driving test booking.
Q. How many hours will I need?
A. A complete beginner would need around a minimum of 45 hours of
driving experience with a driving instructor to have a good chance
of passing the U.K. driving test.
Q. I have completed 20 hours of lessons about a year ago how
many intensive hours should I book?
A. A minimum of 25 hours or 30 hours if you want to give yourself
the best possible chance of passing first time.
Q. At what stage do I have to pay for my intensive course
A. Once you have confirmed your proposed schedule of intensive course
hours you would be required to complete the booking within 24 hours.
Q. Can I change from a manual training vehicle to an automatic
training vehicle once I have started my intensive lessons?
A. Only if the instructor that you have been allocated also provides
automatic driving tuition. There may also be a difference in the
price of lessons that would need to be paid for.
Q. Can I book my driving test for any driving test centre
even if it is not my local driving test centre?
A. Yes you can book your driving test for any driving test centre
in or around Manchester or outside of Manchester but there would
be extra costs involved if you book a driving test appointment that
is outside of your local area.
Q. I can’t make my intensive lesson today as I need
to go to work instead can I reschedule it?
A. Please see our terms and conditions page before completing your intensive course booking so that you are aware of refund policy for intensive courses.
Q. If I turn up late for my intensive lesson will it still
A. If there is a delay with you meeting your instructor for your
scheduled intensive lesson appointment please communicate this in
advance to him/her.
If your allocated intensive instructor turns up to provide your
lesson and 30 minutes has passed and you are not there for your
intensive lesson you would loose that days training.
Q. Can I book a driving test for a different part of the country
that has less of a wait for driving test appointments?
A. Yes but there would be extra charges involved if you require
driving test cover for an out of area driving test.
Q. Will my intensive course lessons start from outside my home address?
A. Our intensive courses currently start from outside one of the locations listed above.
Q. What would happen if I accidently give the wrong driving
test appointment time when I book my intensive course?
A. If you give the wrong driving test appointment when booking your
course and don’t notify anyone until near or on the day of
your driving test e.g. you realise that your test is an hour later
than you confirmed it was – it is likely that you would end
up with no driving test cover. Our intensive instructors book their
schedules in advance and wouldn’t be able to cancel somebody
short notice because you had not given the correct time of your
driving test appointment. If this happens the final test hour would
become a practice hour instead.
Q. I have noticed that intensive courses are referred to by
many names does this have any significance regarding the type of
training being offered?
A. Intensive driving courses are advertised in many ways some of
A one week driving course, a one to one driving course, a fast pass
driving course, an intensive driving crash course, a North West
driving crash course, a 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 day crash course
Manchester, semi intensive driving lessons, intensive driving lessons
The above names are all ways of referring to the general intensive
course service whereby an individual books a driving test and then
learns to drive over a shorter period of time e.g. over a few weeks
as opposed to a few months or more.
Q. Can my intensive lessons be spread out instead of being
scheduled for over one week only?
A. Yes you could for e.g. undertake one intensive lesson per week
over 6 weeks. (Dependant upon instructor availability at the time
that you enquire)
Q. Who will be delivering my intensive lesson course?
A. We have instructors who specialise in providing intensive lessons.
They are licenced by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency.
