Available driving courses in Kent

If you have a deadline to meet, or work full time and it is more practical to take time off work, condensing your driving lessons into an intensive course could help you pass in a condensed timescale. We offer full intensive driving courses (manual and automatic) built around your availability, with the aim for you to pass within a week to 10 days (depending on the length of the intensive).
To book and plan in an intensive you need to have passed your theory first, so that a test can be booked to accommodate your timescale. If your theory is passed, we can book your test date and link you up with your personal instructor who will plan everything in with you.
The DVSA test fee of £62 is paid within 2-3 weeks of booking and the deposit and balance dates will be arranged in the diary to assist with your budgeting.(If you wish to consider a semi intensive you also need to have your theory passed or a test booked).
We do not take money upfront for these courses.

Please note : If during the week of the intensive course and by the day before the test, the instructor deems you to be unsafe or not test ready to take the test, the test will not go ahead. These are obviously very, very rare occasions, but do occasionally occur. We, like other driving schools cannot guarantee a Pass, as this is dependent on the learner demonstrating safe and independent driving skills as taught in the course.


Full intensive driving courses are available based on the following over 1 week - 10 days depending on the timescale. 50% deposit and 50% balance dates will be planned in depending on the timescale.


  • 20 hours (within 5 days) (manual/auto)* £700
  • 25 hours (manual/auto)** £875
  • 30 hours (manual/auto) £1050
  • 35 hours (manual/auto) £1225


  • 20 hours (within 5 days) (manual)* £700
  • 25 hours (manual)** £875
  • 30 hours (manual) £1050

An assessment lesson will be required / encouraged for 20, 25, & 30 hour intensives to determine the approriate length for success.

*Must have at least 15 hours' previous intructional experience.
**Must have at least 10 hours' previous instructional experience.


Semi intensive courses are over 4-6 weeks and often a more effective way to learn than the intensive depending on your time scale. 50% deposit and 50% balance dates will be planned in depending on the timescale.


  • 4-6 weeks (20 hours) £700
  • 4-6 weeks (25 hours) £875
  • 4-6 weeks (30 hours) £1050
  • 4-6 weeks (35 hours) £1225


  • 4-6 weeks (20 hours) £700
  • 4-6 weeks (25 hours) £875
  • 4-6 weeks (30 hours) £1050
  • 4-6 weeks (35 hours) £1225

Typical hours per week: 4 weeks = 7-8, 5 weeks = 6-7, 6 weeks = 5-6.

I was recommended Pass driving school a few months ago and I’m so glad I did! John made me feel safe when driving and there was much flexibility with lesson to fit my needs. John really goes that extra mile to help his students by providing much support as well as resources to help through the the theory and practical exams. Would really recommend Pass Driving School to anyone starting to drive.

I was recommended to go with John King at Pass driving school. So pleased I did have John as my instructor as he was excellent, no time wasting, and I was able to pass my driving test in a very short time. Would highly recommend Pass driving school to anyone who is thinking of learning to drive.

HI was able to pass my practice driving test today on my FIRST attempt,all thanks to John King. He really is an amazing instructor and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an instructor who is willing to go the extra mile when it comes to easing your experience throughout the whole process, such as booking your test on your behalf. Although I might have made many mistakes while learning, John was always able to encourage progression whilst making the lesson enjoyable.

I had an excellent driving instructor from Pass Driving School, Alex Holder. He made me feel at ease no matter the situation, despite me being very nervous. He taught me in easy to understand ways, and was always supportive and some one I've come to consider good friend. I couldn't recommend Alex and Pass driving school enough, I couldn't of asked for more and had an experience I will always remember dearly.
