    BeginnerIf you have never driven before or have no driving experience, then you will need to look at our Gold / Platinum range of courses. Beginner courses are suitable for the new candidate who is keen to start off on the right path of driving. These courses are designed to help you pass your driving test quicker than conventional weekly driving lessons. Usually, these courses can take up to 2 – 3 weeks depending on a few circumstances and will inevitably require you to book time off or be available for a good portion of the day.


    IntermediateOur Silver courses are suited for learners who are confident enough and who have had approximately 20 hours of driving experience. This course will help close the gap between where you’re currently at to becoming test standard.

Our Bronze courses are curated to make all learner drivers test standard before they go to test.

    Practical Test Centres Near Pencoed

    Pencoed has no local test centre itself. So taking your driving test will require you to travel to other places/towns. You can travel to Bridgend or Exeter test centres to take your test. Although these are far from your hometown of Pencoed, all our driving instructors will take you to your practical test at these centres!


    All our intensive courses will help you become test standard and be familiar with the area prior to taking your test! For more information on different test centres, please consider browsing through our practical test centres index page.

    Theory Test Centres Near Pencoed

    Pencoed does not have its own theory test centre, this will require travel to the nearby test centres that would be situated in Bridgend. You cannot book a practical until you’ve passed the theory test, that’s why taking a theory test is very important.


    With all our intensive driving courses, we don’t mind if you have not passed your theory yet. We like to take on learners who have not got their theory as we believe it’s just as important as the practical test.
