    Learning to drive - crash course or lessons

    I'm going to start learning to drive as soon as possible, so obviously I'm looking at the cheapest way of doing it.

    Has anybody had experiences with these crash courses? How do they compare to the overall cost of doing it the traditional way?

    I'm undecided which way to do it, so opinions on both would be greatly appreciated.

    Depends on how fast you want to pass. If crash course, your best learning a bit first, as it's a lot to take in.

    crash courses are a waste of money imo, you're put in for a test way before you're actually ready to take one, hence you fail and end up losing confidence and spending yet more money on lessons.

    do it in the middle, instead of doing 1 or 2 hours a week or doing 10 hours, just do two 2 hour sessions (4 hours) every week, in maximum 2 months time you should be ready. worked for a driving school.

    Thanks for the advice (rep to follow this!). It was the way I was leaning to be honest, I just wondered if anyone was going to come out with a glowing reference for crash courses.

    Are there any good deals to be had on lessons at the moment then?

    whoever you choose to drive with, ask what their pass rate is mate and what grade instructor they are, a good pass rate would be good and a grade 5 or 6 instructor would be ideal for you.

    with regards to deals prices are changing quite a bit at the moment but keep your eyes peeled!

    Go with recommendations as well, if you have mates that have passed with an instructor and found him/her to be very good you can try and get the same one.

    Often local driving schools will be cheaper than the bigger ones but with the bigger ones you can sometimes get buy 10 lessons get 1 free kind of things.

    However don't pay for too many lessons up front as you may find you need less, finally some instructors after a lesson or two may let you pay them cash in hand which often lowers the price compared to booking through the driving company (not sure how legal that is though)
