Intensive driving lessons typically involve one student and one teacher. The theory is total immersion: the student needs to drive 4-6 hours per day for a period of 1-2 weeks. This practice ensures that the student will be an excellent driver. Other types of lessons last longer and have less on-road time, leading to an inexperience and vulnerability to accidents. Intensive driving lessons will emphasize proper adherence to traffic laws and teach a student to drive well and safely. Advanced driving lesson usually have a specific topic like "Defensive Driving" or "Driving Large Vehicles" and more.
A Good Driving School
If you are looking for a school in your area with good intensive driving lessons or advanced driving lessons, you're best option is to take the advice of a friend/relative. If you can't find advice from any of your friends or relatives, then check the Internet and read reviews. After you have selected a few dealers call your local DMV and ask if there have been any complaints registered with the company and ask for suggestions. Check to make sure that the school is certified and that all instructors are licensed to teach. Another important thing to do is ask for special permission to ride along with the instructor on a lesson to ensure you are getting your money's worth. Call your insurance company and see if there are any driving schools that will reduce your bill.
Besides offering intensive driving lessons, a good driving school will prepare the student for other things associated with driving, such as how to deal with an accident. Students need to learn things like keeping insurance paperwork in the car, what information to ask for, what information they are required to give and other aspects of dealing with an accident. Since a lot of automobile accidents occur at night, it is a good idea to receive some sort of night driving training.
Selecting an excellent driving school and not necessarily going for the thrifty option will save you thousands in damages, tickets, and re-education in the long run. Your teenager (or yourself) will be an excellent, defensive driver, with loads of experience, and you will be able to rest easy. And in a sense isn't that what it all boils down to? You want to get so much cost effective and productivity out of your driving school. At least with a little research you will be able to achieve just that which you set out to get.
