Indeed, many people will argue that intensive driving courses offer better value for money than their ordinary counterparts by virtue of the fact that they allow the student driver to learn how to drive much more quickly, thereby increasing their employment value as well as minimising the disruption to their life.
In truth, this is not quite true because intensive driving courses are conducted in a much shorter period of time meaning that the actual number of hours required to cover the material is the same, the only difference being that the breathing space between the lessons is significantly reduced.
Given that the human brain can only absorb so much information at any given time and will actually require additional time to process it, the major drawback with intensive driving courses is that unless the consumer is careful as to how â€œintenseâ€ the driving course is, they will be engaged in a false economy.
What is the point of trying to learn something if there is an extremely minimal chance of you actually remembering the content covered thus far? Exactly. However, time after time, unsuspecting student drivers for whatever reason seem to think that intensive driving courses offer good value for money.
Intensive driving courses are at best, a mixed blessing and one that has to be approached with a significant degree of care and caution if the student driver wishes to actually avoid the possibility of enduring a poor outcome, or a major dent to their personal finances. They are not for EVERYONE. If you are a fast learner and have a lot of talent of course this is the answer for you, but if you arenâ€™t then be aware.
Make sure you read the small print and that you can actually keep up with the demands and expectations of the group!
