Others have been learning to drive for a while but need an intensive driving course to pass before going away to university.
One lady wanted to learn to drive so that she could take the kids on day trips to the seaside.
We have even raced a few babies - helping mums and dads through the test before the baby arrived!

Fast track driving courses in Manual or Automatic cars
Intensive Driving Courses in Carlisle are available in automatic or manual cars.
Unless you find driving a manual car physically difficult we recommend that you learn to drive in a manual car in Carlisle. When you pass your test in a manual car you are licensed to drive either manual or automatic. But if you pass the test in an automatic you will need to take the test again to drive a manual car unsupervised. For this reason many more driving instructors teach in manual cars than automatic.
Automatic driving lessons cost more and automatic driving instructors are harder to find
Many people think that learning to drive an automatic must be easier (fewer pedals) and therefore quicker. Not true!
The reasons people fail driving tests are much the same whether they drive an automatic or manual car, and have little to do with choosing gears

Your Driving Test
It is not possible to book a practical driving test for you until you have passed your driving theory test.
Ideally you will have passed your Driving Theory Test before booking your course. We will then be able to book a Practical Driving Test for you at a local test centre. We aim to book your test for the end of your course but we are dependent on availability at driving test centres near Carlisle.
Time for your driving test is included as part of your intensive driving course time
The car you drive for the test will be the one you have been driving throughout your intensive course. If you wish, your instructor may accompany you on the test but cannot take part or help in anyway
