Just passed my practical first time after Mark Gibbs stepped in at the last minute to save my intensive course. I was able to drive confidently in a short amount of time and cannot thank him enough.
I had approximately 2 months of driving lessons with Matt and passed my practical test on my first attempt. He was an excellent instructor.
Learning to drive in and around Southampton is a great experience. This historic city has a fantastic coastal location, providing plenty of scenic driving routes and lots of variety. Whether you soak up the thespian atmosphere surrounding the Mayflower Theatre, fly by the yachts at Ocean Village or marvel at St Mary’s Football Stadium, there are plenty of sights to keep your driving routes interesting (just remember to keep your eyes on the road at all times!). Build up your skills in the quiet residential areas of Highfield, Bassett and Shirley, or around Southampton University, before whizzing into the city to build your confidence on busy roads.
Brush up on your traffic lights know-how around the retail and leisure parks of Harbour Parade and learn how to drive in two lane traffic down West Quay Road and Mountbatten Way. The natural undulating terrain of Southampton will give you lots of hill start practice and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to master junction manoeuvers. So, whatever driving skills you need to learn or build on, there are plenty of places to go in and around Southampton to keep your intensive driving lessons interesting and most importantly of all, fun!
Our intensive driving lessons can be taken in either an automatic or manual car. Automatic driving lessons are ideal for students who want to go down the intensive crash course driving route. The learning process is much more straightforward and so students typically progress to test level much more quickly. An automatic car removes the need to learn about how to change gear or clutch control, giving you more time to learn about monitoring the road, undertaking manoeuvers and safe positioning of your car.
However, if you would prefer to take your intense driving lessons in a manual car, this is absolutely possible too. Driving a manual car is a bit harder and can take more time to grasp, but our experienced driving instructors have plenty of tips and tricks to help you master the art of clutch control and gear changes quickly.
