Weekly Lessons

Semi-intensive Pass Course

All the courses shown use the unique LD System of driving tuition. Details about each of these services is described below with advice on how to decide which service would best suit you and for the prices or information on how to book one of these courses please visit the prices page. Please note taking a course does not guarantee that you will pass, however, if you successfully complete all the targets in the LDC workbook it is highly probable that you will.

Weekly Lessons
Learning to drive, using the LD System, can be spread over several weeks and lessons can be booked individually or in a block at a discount.

Unlike the courses described below the LD driving skills videos and workbook are not included in the lesson price, but can be purchased separately. As an alternative to buying the driving skills videos you can rent them, for a nominal fee, directly from your local LDC instructor.

Semi-intensive Pass Course
(30 hours of driving lessons, the driving test and the LD DVD/Workbook)

The Semi-intensive Pass Course is identical in content to the One Week Pass Course (i.e. 30 hours etc) except the training is usually spread over 2 to 10 weeks to suit you and your instructor’s schedule. This is the most successful form of training. It is designed for people who want to have a structured course, pass the test quickly than if they were doing weekly lessons but at a comfortable pace.

The in-car training is 30 hours on a one to one basis. (This includes 2 hours to attend the test). 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.

Please note that if you want to undertake one of our driving courses you must have passed your theory test. Without the theory test passed a driving test cannot be booked, and therefore your instructor cannot arrange your driving course. To book your theory test click this link

All pupils who undertake their lessons with an LDC instructor get access to our theory revision online package, which can be accessed through your phone, tablet, laptop or PC.

How many hours will it take?
According to the latest Government survey people learning to drive in the UK buy on average 52 hours of professional driving lessons. This is why it is important to select the right driving school and training approach, with structured training with set goals to aim for.

Weekly lessons versus driving courses?
Taking just one driving lesson per week will help to spread out the training cost but you could end up paying far more in the long run and take longer to pass your test. This is because the first half of the next lesson is often wasted getting to where you were at the end of the previous one - thus 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 driving courses are now proving far more popular. However, to do such courses successfully the 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 isn't only useful for intensive training it enables weekly lessons to be conducted in much the same way with clear targets to aim for thus saving time and speeding up progress. The LD System DVD video and workbook also helps 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. This is particularly true if the materials are also properly used by a family member or friend to provide complementary practice in between lessons with your driving instructor.
