Intensive Learning?

Q. I'm thinking of learning to drive, what do you think of doing an intensive course? I'm thinking of doing a semi-intensive course that will take 2-4 weeks instead of only 1. Thanks.

A. Think long and hard before doing an Intensive, or even Semi Intensive course. They are not right for everyone, and even those who they suit will not pick up the same level of practical experience as someone learning on a weekly basis.
It really depends on the Instructor, on you and on how long the session are. I would recommend a single lesson before you commit in case you don't get on with their teaching style.
If I were you, and I tell this to anyone asking for an intensive, I would do 2 hours a day as often as possible. Any more than 2 hours goes in 1 ear and out the other! And PLENTY of Private Practice.
Remember you also need to do your Theory test.
