    Choosing The Right Course For You in Porthleven...

    All learners are at different stages in their driving progress. We are here to guide choosing the right course for you to have the best chances of passing. All our intensive courses are curated to help different types of learners. Kindly read the 3 descriptions below to give you a brief understanding of which course is suitable for you. If you need us to recommend a course, then you can either use our course recommender quiz or call us on 0800 112 3515!


    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, booking in advance is better to 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 – Courses for experienced drivers usually need our Bronze courses. If you have failed a driving test and need a quick refresher course to crack on with your test, then this is right for you. If you have lots of training and have not had much test training either, these courses are good to overview your driving and go over any bad habits, areas of weakness, before your driving test.

    Theory Test Centres Near Porthleven

    Porthleven does not have its own theory test centre, this will require travel to the nearby test centre that would be situated in Bodmin. 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 in Porthleven, 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.


    If you don’t pass your driving the first time, we will feature a free retest in all our driving courses above 20 hours.
