Why choose an intensive driving course

Intensive driving courses, sometimes referred to as crash courses, are becoming more and more popular. Recent studies show that intensive driving courses such as ours are a cost effective way of teaching somebody to drive a car due to its efficiency and convenience. You will be condensing months of regular driving lessons into a very short period of two weeks. You also are focused on your concentration as you are learning to drive on the roads all day.

What about the new Driving Theory?

Since April 2014 there is a new format of the theory with no publication of the questions, and also you can now only take the theory test in English or Welsh. With these change we are still holding a 98% pass rate for our students. Extra theory test facilities are available for students with learning difficulties. Back to Top

 Is a pass guaranteed?

Nobody can guarantee you a driving test pass. Skilled driving professionals from the Driving Standards Agency will examine you on the final day. They will recognise a safe driver and we strive to accomplish their expectations.

Should you be unlucky enough to fail your test on your first attempt, Omega Driving Courses will allow you to re-sit - the second attempt to include; car and instructor absolutely free, all you need pay is the D.S.A practical test fee (applies to 5 day or longer courses and must be taken within four weeks of first attempt). From experience though, very few have needed to avail of this option. Back to Top

 How do your intensive driving courses work?

Our intensive driving courses work as we reach the set targets each student needs to achieve in the intensive driving programme. You are not repeating any previous driving lesson activity and the interactive disposition of our driving courses helps the student to attain confidence with all day driving and thus reach the desired driving targets.

 Where do your intensive driving courses take place?

Our intensive driving courses take place within a reasonable driving distance from Blackpool. Back to Top

 How do I get there?

As Blackpool is the most popular tourist resort in the UK, there is a fantastic transportation network - rail and road, therefore travelling to Blackpool is easy and straightforward. Back to Top

Can I have someone come and stay with me while I do a driving course?

Yes you can. The hotels we use will make a small charge for them but your B&B is included in the cost of the course. Back to Top

 I've never driven a car before, can I still do a driving course with you?

Yes you can. We cater for all levels of skill and your tuition would be tailored to suit your ability. Back to Top

 Do I need a photocard licence to do a driving course?

No, you can still take your tests with an old style paper licence, but you would need a valid passport as proof of identity. Back to Top

 I need to do an extended test, can I do a course with you?

Yes you can. We would advise that you get your theory test first though then come to us for a short course where we would have your test pre-booked for you. You would have to pay an extra test fee of 56.50 for this. Back to Top

 I have points on my provisional licence, can I still so a driving course with you?

Points do not prevent you from taking a course with us. If you have driven for a while (legally or illegally) you would be taught the correct way to drive and your bad habits would be ironed out. Back to Top

 I am dyslexic; will I get help with the theory test?

Yes, we would book your test with a voiceover on so you can listen to the questions being read to you. You will receive theory tuition with your instructor. Back to Top

 I have been taking lessons but my instructor says I'm not ready for test.

You have to be at a certain standard to take a practical test and you are not allowed to take it 'just for the experience'. The benefit of an intense course is that it can give you that final push you need to get you to the standard required. Back to Top

 What is included in the price of the course?

Unlike some other companies, the prices quoted on the prices page of the website is fully inclusive of your theory training, practical training, all your test fees AND your bed & breakfast accommodation. Back to Top

 What do I need to book a driving course with you?
