Dragon Driver sole intention is to get you through your driving test in the safest possible time. We are only interested in results and success for our students. So Intensive lessons will be  demanding on both the student and the instructor, as little room is given for mistakes. There is great focus on high standards.  All courses can be tailored to  1.5 or 2 hour lessons to suit the students take up of the programme. The one hour lesson is supported with an initial teaching aid.

Dragon Driver specialises in intensive driving courses. The Intensive Course focuses on pin-pointing the requirements of the test, particularly observation and hazard perception.

These courses are particularly good for experienced learner  drivers or those committed to passing their test quickly. In addition to the teaching aids supplied with standard lessons, students receive extra visual aids, and a free DVD Visual Guide to passing your test. Students are encouraged to study this material at home to get results as swiftly as possible.

The number of lessons required varies on an individual student basis and their level of experience, but typically a novice driver would be expected to complete the course in 15 hours, which would include 3 hours of pretest in those 15 hours.

During the the first two hours the core visual aids are explained. If an accompanied driver is available he/she is invited to sit in on lessons 4 and 5, free of charge. The rest of the course is tailored to the particular students needs.
