Intensive Driving Courses Barnstaple

One Week Driving Courses With LPOD Academy

Who wants to pass their test? Everyone right! However, the average learner spends around 6 – 12 months taking driving lessons and you tend to not remember everything you do lesson to lesson because of the long duration. By doing an intensive driving course in Barnstaple, you fast track the long process of learning to drive into a matter of weeks!


Whilst there are other things to cover like theory & test waiting times, we manage to secure practical test bookings for your test most of the time! To get started, you can give our team a call on 0800 112 3515 to get some assistance on your circumstances and they’ll recommend a course that will suit you!
