Topclass driving school Gillingham, provide intensive driving courses in Kent, Medway, Gillingham, Chatham, Rochester, Gravesend, Dartford, Maidstone, Sittingbourne, Sheerness, Canterbury, Herne bay and surrounding areas (see our areas covered page for more details), Our intensive courses start from a short 8 hour course for someone who has recently failed their driving test, right up to the 35 to 40 hour intensive course suitable for the complete novice. Our intensive driving courses are designed to suit your individual requirements these range from courses for the complete beginner who has never been behind the wheel before, to shorter courses for those who have recently failed their driving test and want to improve their driving skills in order to retake it as soon as possible. Intensive driving courses are the fastest way to learn to drive, pass the driving test and gain a full UK driving licence.
Our driving instructor's will need to carry out an assessment of your driving skills to date to enable them to recommend the intensive course most suitable for your driving ability. Everyone is different and not everyone learns at the same pace so the number of hours required to reach the appropriate standard for the driving test will vary from person to person. In our experience, the number of hours required for the average beginner varies between 30 to 40 hours. Obviously some people will do this quicker than others, Much depends on any previous driving experience. Our intensive driving courses can be taken over 1 to 6 weeks depending on the number of hours being taken.
The amount of hours you take per day/week will vary depending on the course length chosen, but typically 2 to 3 hour sessions are most popular, although 3 to 5 hour sessions are not uncommon. All you have to do is decide the time frame in which you want to pass your test in and arrange an assessment lesson with us.
In order to undertake an intensive course, you will need to have passed your theory test, as you will not be able to book a practical test without this. If you have not yet passed your theory test then don't worry, just book your assessment lesson with us now and your driving instructor will help you to prepare for the theory test.
A 25% non-refundable deposit will be required to book all intensive courses with the balance payable 10 working days before the commencement of the course. Upon payment of the balance NO REFUNDS WILL BE PAYABLE.
All Intensive course payments must be made in advance direct to Topclass driving school by debit or credit card. Topclass driving school will not be responsible for any payments made by any other means direct to your instructor.

We also offer 1 or 2 hour manual and automatic driving lessons which can be taken every week in dual controlled cars and all our lessons are with DSA approved male or female driving instructors. We can offer 1 or 2 hour driving lessons but two hours is probably the best way to learn. Sounds expensive at first, but bear in mind you can probably learn two and a half times (or more) than in an hour's lesson, so saves money in the long run. If your attention is waning towards the end, then a 90 minute lesson may be more beneficial.
