Hourly LessonsWeekly Lessons – £28/hour or £27/hour (10+)
Learning to drive, using the LD System, can be spread over several weeks and lessons can be booked individually or in a Block Booking at a discount.

Test Booster courseTest Booster Course – £26/hour. Total £491
(15 hours of driving lessons, the driving test and the LD DVD/Workbook)

For those who are nearing test standard and who just need a short burst of lessons prior to the test we have the Test Booster Course. It is also ideal for those who have had an attempt at the test some time ago but haven’t had any lessons since.

The in-car training is 15 hours. You need to allocate a further 5 hours to complete the home study, using the LD System DVD and workbook. This brings the total duration of the course to around 20 hours.


Mid-Way PassMidway Pass Course – £26/hour. Total £621

Semi-Intensive & Intensive One Week courseSemi-intensive Pass Course – £26/hour. Total £881

The Semi-intensive Pass Course is identical in content to the One Week Pass Course (i.e. 30 hours etc.) except the training is spread over two, three or more weeks to suit you and your instructor’s schedule.

This is the most successful form of intensive training and driving courses. It is designed for people who want to pass the test quickly but at a comfortable pace.

The in-car training is 30 hours. You need to allocate a further 10 hours to complete the home study, using the LD System DVD and workbook, bringing the total duration of the course to around 40 hours.


Semi-Intensive & Intensive One Week courseOne Week Pass Course – £27/hour. Total £911
(30 hours of driving lessons, the driving test and the LD DVD/Workbook)

The One Week Pass Course usually starts on Monday and finishes on Friday.

It is ideal for those who are in a hurry, who could not otherwise find the time. The driving test would usually be organised to take place during the following week (probably Thursday).

Theory Test CompleteIf you want a test at the end of the course you would need to book the course and pass the theory test well in advance of the required start date (i.e. at least one month in advance). However,  short notice driving tests sometimes can be arranged.

The best option is to buy one of our Theory Test Products and pass Theory Test part as quickly as possible.

The in-car training provided is 30 hours. You need to allocate a further 10 hours to complete the home study, using the LD System DVD and workbook, bringing the total duration of this course to around 40 hours.


Pass Plus
DVSA Pass PlusThe Pass Plus is designed by the DVSA in association with the Insurance and driving instruction industries for those people who have passed their test and is aimed at speeding up your driving experience.

Six subjects covered are: motorway driving; dual carriageways; adverse weather conditions; country roads; night driving; and, busier town driving.

As well as speeding up your experience you can save a considerable amount on cost of insurance with participating insurers.


How many hours will it take to pass the driving test?

According to the latest Government survey people learning to drive in the UK buy on average 52 hours of professional driving lessons. From this you will appreciate it can easily cost you over a £1,000 to learn to drive and take up to a year to pass the practical driving test.

With LDC’s revolutionary LD System of driving tuition the average number of hours to pass the test is closer to 30 hours – a potential saving of up to 22 hours from the norm. This is why it is important to select the right driving school and training approach.


Weekly lessons versus intensive courses?

Taking just one driving lesson per week will help to spread out the training cost but you will end up paying far more in the long run and take several months to pass your test. The first half of your next lesson can be wasted getting to where you were at the end of the previous one. It is like taking two steps forward and one step back.

Also if you are taking weekly lessons without any clear targets to achieve or, set test date to aim for, the training loses any urgency and lessons tend to drift off course reducing its effectiveness even further.

This is why intensive and semi-intensive courses are now proving far more popular. However, to do such courses successfully your training needs to be carefully structured and expertly delivered so that no time in the car is wasted. Hence the development of the revolutionary LD System of driving tuition.


The LD System is great for all of our training courses and not just for intensive training.

Weekly lessons are conducted in much the same way with clear targets to aim for – saving time, speeding up progress. The LD System also help to overcome the “two steps forward one step back” problem of weekly lessons by allowing you to revise your last lesson while preparing for the next.

The LD System materials can be used by a family member or friend to provide complementary practice in-between lessons.
