    Choosing The Right Course For You in Strathaven...

    We know that all learners have different learning styles and driving progress. That’s why LPOD Academy is here to guide you in choosing the right course for you. We offer premium training at competitive prices to give you the best chances of passing your test the first time. Below are the 3 descriptions 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!


    BeginnerYou may need to look at our Platinum / Gold courses if you have very little experience driving a car. These courses are designed to help you cover all of the driving topics and go from the very beginning of your course to the end of your journey. These courses will usually last over 2 or more weeks. No more waiting months. Kindly book in advance so 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 – 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, prior to your driving test.
