Pupil Testimonials

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.

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! 🙂

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 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!
