    BeginnerIf you have no driving experience, then you will need to look at our Gold / Platinum range of courses. These courses are suitable for beginners who are 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 that require you to book time off or be available for a good portion of the day.


    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.


    ExperiencedIf you need to transfer to a UK licence or need to pass your driving test, you definitely found the right answer. LPODAcademy will help you. Our Bronze courses are curated to make all learner drivers test standard before they go to test. We can book in the hours around your schedule and book your practical test for the end of your course too.
