Jason is a fantastic driving instructor. From the start he was very welcoming and extremely patient. I progressed very quickly with his help and I would more than happily recommend him as a very professional, knowledgeable and friendly instructor. I am now very confident about driving and I am over the moon at having passed my test. Many thanks, Gary

Intensive Driving Courses in Sussex/Surrey *currently unavailable*

These courses, oddly referred to as ‘crash courses’ sometimes, are designed for people who have already had at least a few driving lessons or some driving experience with a friend or relative - we do not offer these intensive driving lessons to complete beginners.

Do you need to pass the test as soon as possible?

Failed your driving test(s) previously and need intensive coaching?

Need to prepare for a test in an unfamiliar location?

Whatever the reason, an intensive driving course can quickly give you the confidence to pass your driving test, and more importantly drive on your own.

However, these intensive driving lessons are called ‘intensive’ for a reason, they are mentally and physically tiring. As a result we do not generally recommend more than 4 hours per day, unlike certain other schools, as your ability to learn diminishes rapidly through the day. We also advise a coffee/tea-break every 2 hours. All tuition is on a one-to-one basis with an experienced and fully qualified driving instructor.

You will also need to pass the theory test, prior to your intensive course.


We are able to offer intensive driving courses across most of Sussex and Surrey, from our bases at Horsham, Crawley/Gatwick, Brighton and Worthing. We also get many pupils from London taking intensive courses, as test availability is much better here, we tend to find that Crawley Test Centre normally has the best test availability in Sussex or Surrey, so if you are in a hurry this is usually the best option. We can collect you from home if it is within a reasonable travelling distance, from a local station, or from a hotel/guest house if you are travelling from afar. Contact us for details of local stations and accommodation.


In order to recommend the best course for you, we provide an initial 90 minute driving assessment at a fixed price of £50 - we then recommend the best course for you and include a free driving test retake if you do not pass on the first attempt - it is in our interests to get you passed first time, and we usually do!

Intensive Driving Course fees, including the practical test fee and a free re-test if you do not pass first time (based on our recommended course) , are as follows:
