    Choosing The Right Course For You in Bargoed...

    Not sure which course is best for you? We have plenty of course packages that range from beginner to experienced levels. Below is a brief description of which level you may be at. As you read these descriptions, you will have an idea of which course is best for you. If you’re still unsure, kindly phone one of our friendly team members on 0800 112 3515 or visit our course recommender quiz here.


    Beginner – If you have no or very little driving experience with a car, then you may need to look at our Platinum / Gold courses. These are designed to help you cover all of the driving topics and go from A – Z in the driving syllabus. Usually, these courses will last over 2 or more weeks. If you need to book time off or have limited time for these courses, then booking in advance is better as you can secure more preferable dates!


    Intermediate – If you have some practice or had lessons a while ago, then you are almost there & ready to take a test. But a medium-sized course will help close the gap between where you’re currently at to becoming test standard.


    Experienced – Have you failed your driving test recently or have done lots of driving lessons in the past? Our Bronze courses will suit you best. These courses will help you keep the momentum going especially if you have failed a test. Your driving instructor will brush over where you failed on your test and put you towards becoming the best version of yourself to your test.
