    Choosing The Right Course For You in Wishaw...

    You have to find out the best course that is suited for you when deciding to do an intensive course. You will need to first work out where you’re at with your driving if you’re still unsure of what course is best for you. Below are some descriptions labelled as beginner, intermediate & experienced. Whether you need a beginner or refresher course, then we will have you covered! You can call us on 0800 112 3515 or use our course recommender quiz too.


    BeginnerIf you have very little driving practice or you have never driven before, our Gold / Platinum courses are ideal for you. These courses are designed to make you confident and help you with preparing for the driving test as it helps you go over all of the driving topics there. We recommend you book early as it will give you more access to better start dates and timings.


    IntermediateIf 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.


    ExperiencedOur Bronze courses are best for experienced drivers. If you have failed a driving test and need a quick refresher course, then this is right for you. If you have lots of training and not had much test training either, these courses are good to overview your driving and go over any bad habits. These courses will help you have confidence again in diving.
