Welcome to Nordrive - we only do Intensive Driving Courses Finding it hard to choose - have an hour's assessment Most people say they wish they'd done an Intensive years ago
Specialising in intensive courses for many years means you can benefit from our long experience and knowledge. Nordrive Intensive is a small and well established driving school. We don't have large overheads or commission to pay which lets us offer courses at low rates. Compare our fees with other local companies offering similar intensive courses - even with their special offers - and you're likely to find our training costs are still lower. It will help if you read our google reviews. This will give you an idea of what people have said about their experiences. It can be confusing trying to decide which company to go with and which would be the best course - you don't want to spend too much but want enough hours to make sure you can pass. I always suggest an hour's assessment before deciding if you're not sure. The majority of my students have all driven before. Some have had a test or been up to test standard. For what ever reason they have waited a long time - perhaps years - to start training again. With weekly driving lessons it can be a case of five steps forward and three back. I think most people learn better with continuity. Intensive Driving Courses are ideal to help make quicker progress.
Train to the highest level

Still wondering:
You may be looking for a course for you or someone else. You might have already looked at a few other sites to compare. If you want to find out a bit more then you can send in a form, text, phone or email. I'll do my best to answer your questions. You will not be pressurised into booking a course.

Do you have any previous driving experience:
Most of my students already have some driving experience.

Here are some examples:

"I've done a bit of driving on a supermarket car park - airfield - private land etc"

"I've done loads of driving with my mum - dad - boyfriend but never/only had a few proper driving lessons with a driving instructor."

"I have had lots of driving lessons but need to get through my test now."

Save Money:
The more driving experience the more money that you could be saving - that has got to be good news! Get as much practice as you can before starting an intensive course. This will save time in getting to test standard and will increase your chances of success.

Feeling Frustrated:
Unfortunately some peoples' learning experience is a bit negative. They can feel as if their Driving Instructor is only interested in is taking their money! It seems they are not making the sort progress they expected and as a result have become frustrated. Instead of looking forward to their driving lessons they start to loose enthusiasm.

Learning to drive should be enjoyable. Our intensive courses are structured so that students can see progress on a daily basis. Time passes very quickly as there is always something new to learn.


If you have never had any driving experience:
"I will get my provisional licence soon and want to pass my Driving Test as soon as possible"

This may be possible for some. If they have off road driving experience or have ridden a motorbike then an Intensive Course could be great. Training is easier if someone has already had some on road experience but a lot of off road practice is also really helpful.

"I really need to be driving now because of my circumstances"

If you are the more 'mature' driver then be prepared for more hours if you find really need them.

It's about being a safe driver - not just passing a test:
This is a fundamental point and often quoted by instructors - it's not about just scraping through a driving test but then not being a confident. It sounds like a cliche but I teach people to drive not just to pass their test.

The test is only a small part of learning to drive. The test lasts for around 45 minutes - you will be a driver for the rest of your life.

Fast track courses are a sensible option but the aim is to produce safe and confident drivers.

and finally...
I have trained many different types of people over the years. Getting the best out of my students means having the correct approach to training. This means team work - a working relationship where there is mutual respect and a relaxed atmosphere. This makes training much more effective and productive.

If you enjoy driving then the chances are you will be good at it.

I hope this page and the rest of the site will help you find the best course for you.

Training which can be adapted to fit your own style of learning. This means that you will make much better progress. This is not a 'one size fits all' approach.
Building confidence
I often find that learning to drive comes down to confidence in the end. It has very little to do with changing gears and steering. This is why it is so important to try and get people to stop worrying and relax. I think most people can be anxious - this can be even greater when learning to drive. Once the nerves start to get less then learning starts to improve.
