About Our Driving Lessons

What is an intensive Driving course?

An intensive course involves longer driving lessons, with each session lasting a minimum of two hours and a maximum of five hours. Typically, you’ll take lessons several days per week, with our most intensive course structure involving lessons every day. It is, however, possible to opt for a semi-intensive course, which is easier to fit around a busy schedule—an example of this would be taking two-hour sessions on given days or evenings.

Tell me more about the diary system?

All our driving instructors use a diary app called Total Drive.

We also recommend our students to download it by clicking the above link.

The TotalDrive app is a powerful diary system that allows us to send you a notification via the app about your upcoming driving lesson 48 hours before, you can also message your instructor directly via the app.

Another key feature of the diary app is the ability to track your progress and record reflective logs.

How do I access the Total Drive App?

When you book driving lessons with us, we add your details to the diary system, and you will then receive your login details via text and email.

What resources are on the app?

The resources on the app enable you to send a direct message to your instructor or call them. Links to our Theory Test Pro page, Youtube channel, Blog page and more.

I’m a nervous driver – are your courses right for me?

Nervous drivers are welcome at Driving Lessons Liverpool Our experienced, DVSA-approved driving instructors friendly and patient approach to driving tuition should help you feel more at ease behind the wheel.

Learning to drive in an automatic is a much better solution if you are a nervous driver, trying a manual could put you off learning to drive.

It is recommended that nervous learners avoid intensive or semi-intensive driving courses, as you could be put off driving completely if you try to rush learning.

Am I guaranteed to pass?

Driving Lessons Liverpool does not offer ‘guaranteed pass’. This is for one simple reason: it’s impossible to guarantee the result of any test! Instead, we put our efforts into offering excellent tuition and customer service—things that can really make a difference when it comes to your practical driving test. With a pass rate significantly higher than the national average, plus hundreds of happy passers, it’s an approach that works!
