Fast Track Intensive Driving Courses

There are many advantages and a few disadvantages of doing an intensive driving course. The main advantage is that you get your driving test and driving lessons fast-tracked. DTC offers fast DTC Last Minute Fast Track Driving Tests track semi-intensive driving courses which are suitable for learners who have failed a practical test in the past, international license holders and those who are almost up to driving test standard. The disadvantage of a DTC Fast Track Semi-Intensive driving course is that you are taught to pass your driving test. However, if you took weekly driving lessons, the focus would be to teach you to drive safely for life before focusing on the actual driving test.  Whether you decide to take an intensive driving course o weekly driving lessons, you will also need to decide whether to take them in an automatic car or a manual.

Automatic or Manual Driving Courses

DTC Fast Track Driving Tests The main advantage of learning to drive and passing in a manual car is that you get two driving license entitlements. Getting a manual driving license means that you can drive both automatic and manual cars. Manual cars are cheaper to buy than compared to automatic cars. Manual cars also consume less fuel. If you’re a low-budget, it makes sense to purchase and manual vehicle. However, learning to drive a manual car is much harder than learning an automatic. You have the added task to having to select the correct gears. Delicate coordination of the foot controls is required so that the vehicle does not stall.  Learning to drive an automatic, leaves you more time to focus on the mirror-signal-manoeuvre routine.

Up-Grade with DTC Driving Test Services

If you take your driving lessons and pass in an automatic car, you can upgrade to manual at any time. However, you will be required to retake your driving test in a manual car. DTC Driving Test Services will be able to assist you in getting an earlier driving test date for your upgrade.
