Pupil Testimonials

Yousouff was a fantastic instructor. I felt well prepared and he made me feel confident I would pass. Would recommend his services.

Thanks so much to Noel for organising all – with COVID putting a stop to everything and changing all plans quite a few times it was such a relief to be able to rely on Intensive courses to sort out the test booking time and time again. I have to give a HUGE thank you to Federico my instructor, as a somewhat nervous driver he put my mind at ease and made every lesson so enjoyable, he really is such a fab teacher and I couldn’t recommend him enough. He made sure I always felt confident behind the wheel and made sure I knew exactly what I was doing. All thanks to him I passed on my first test with two minors, I really couldn’t have done it without him. Thank you, thank you, thank you


I started my driving with Dennis on Monday 31st March and 5 days later passed my test first time with him in Barnet! I can’t thank Dennis enough for getting me through my test with confidence especially with failing 3 times beforehand. He brought the fun back into driving and was a brilliant teacher. I had a great experience with intensive courses and will be recommending you to friends. Every time I have rung up you have been very welcoming and made sure any questions and worries were answered. You even went out of your way to find me an instructor who had the same car I was previously using, thank you for all your help! 🙂


Booked a 14-hour intensive course that included the test – and passed! What more could you ask for? My instructor Elaine was a brilliant teacher, she made me feel relaxed which is what I needed after having some bad experiences with instructors who were constantly barking in my ear and making me feel more stressed then I needed to be. If your looking for someone who knows there onions backwards then Elaine is the instructor for you. Great service – would recommend to a friend!.

I am 60 years old and had never driven before. I knew all the statistics and stories about older drivers, their slow reactions and the low pass rate, so I was prepared for an uphill struggle. Not only did I pass first time, but I did it in 4 weeks! I chose a 45 hour course with Intensive Courses and was allocated an instructor, Youssouff Mahamedally, the same day. A week later I was on the road. Youssouff was the perfect teacher for me, endlessly patient (even when I made some really horrendous mistakes) and obviously experienced in dealing with nervous but determined pupils. Because the lessons were 3 hours long I really had the opportunity to practise intensively and make sure that all the skills I was learning stayed fresh. Thank you Youssouff – I definitely couldn’t have passed without you and Intensive Courses.

Hi guys and Paresh,

I just wanted to say an enormous thank you for a brilliant learning experience. Very happy to have passed today with only 3 minors.

I would like to submit the following review as I have been so impressed and pleased with your service and Paresh’s brilliant instruction:

I couldn’t recommend Intensive Courses driving instruction any more highly. The booking process was simple and professional, the prices were fair and competitive and the tuition was first class. Thanks to Paresh’s brilliant instruction I was able to pass first time after only 24 hours of tuition, spread across 7 days. Paresh was an incredible teacher, he encouraged me to learn at a pace which was incredible well suited to me. He offered the perfect level of instruction and guidance whilst also allowing me to become a comfortable and confident road user in my own right. My aim when I booked the test was not only to pass but also to become a highly competent and confident driver. With Paresh’s help, I was able to surpass the expectations that I had held for what I would be able to achieve in such a short space of time.

Thank you, Intensive Courses!

Best wishes for the festive period


I am SO HAPPY to have passed today with only 6 minors!  Paresh is everything you need in a driving instructor: harsh, hilarious and humble. I believe that driving lessons should prepare you for your lifetime of driving and Paresh well and truly does this. He got the best out of me and put me through some real tests which I know will stand me in good stead for the future, it was an emotional journey but one that I recommend anyone who is serious about learning to drive quickly to undertake. Thank you, thank you, thank you, I am going to miss our lessons very much. Blessings.


Right from the off, Intensive Courses have been great. Very proactive with getting in contact with me to arrange lessons and happy to answer any calls/questions about test dates and future lessons etc. My driving instructor was Muzaffar who was fantastic. Very calm and collected with pinpoint maneuvers. I couldn’t recommend him highly enough. I was the 4th person to pass that week under his guidance. Glad to be done and happy to have gone with Intensive Courses.

I had a fantastic experience with Intensive Courses from start to end. Noel was very pleasant and helpful when booking my 1.5-week driving course (which was booked last minute)! My driving instructor was also excellent. He was great at teaching all aspects of driving and had the patience to go through any areas I found tricky/difficult. I would highly recommend Intensive Courses as well as Shams as an instructor. Thank you, Noel and Shams, for providing this opportunity. I never thought I’d be able to pass my driving test first time round but managed it with your help so thanks again! 🙂

I made it a New Year’s resolution to learn to drive and pass my test. Intensive Courses seemed to offer the best prices I could find online, and Noel (who I found very helpful and encouraging) managed within a few days, at the start of January, to find me a teacher to start a 15hr course (across 5 days), and a test at the end. I was taught by Paresh Patel, who I found very reliable, helpful, good-natured, and encouraging. Barking seemed a good area to learn, and take the test. A very silly mistake when moving off (using the gas!?) meant I didn’t pass my first test, but Intensive Courses found me another test within 3 weeks, and a refresher lesson. Pleased to say I then passed. Thanks again to Intensive Courses– I had had a few lessons a few years before, but I passed exactly a month after my first lesson.


After giving up learning to drive when I was younger due to a bad experience with an instructor, to say I was nervous to learn again at 31 was an understatement! But I couldn’t have been in better hands. Noel, the friendly owner of Intensive Courses, talked me through the process and recommended me the instructor I would later be partnered with – Glenn. What a lovely guy, and a great teacher! Glenn was incredibly patient with me, was clear and precise in his instruction and was particularly reassuring to me during my (many) moments of self-doubt. He believed in me, and helped me to overcome my nerves. I passed first time, with only four minors! All thanks to Glenn. I would absolutely recommend Intensive Courses, and Glenn particularly. THANK YOU SO MUCH!


I just wanted to email you and let you know that I passed my driving test on the 21st of September! And that it was due to the new instructor you allocated to me. Although I had 20 hours beforehand with the previous instructor, those hours combined did not give me the confidence or knowledge needed to help me pass. I do believe this was due to the teaching and the fact that I learnt more with a new instructor within 8 hours than I did in 20 hours. This says a lot in itself. I am so happy and appreciative of the fact you were able to allocate me an instructor such as Yousouff. So I would just like to say thank you to yourself for listening to my concerns and rectifying any issues that arose. And also to Yousouff for his silent confidence and patience.

Kind regards
