Great work! You’ve passed your driving test, now what happens? It is completely natural to find driving independently daunting. You can never be fully prepared for every situation that you may come across, but the more you drive the easier it will become.

How long does it take to get your license?

Generally, the sooner you start, the faster you will be on the road. At GoGoGo Intensive we aim to get you your driving licence within 5 days. How quickly you pass really depends on whether you have had any previous driving experience and how quickly you are able to pick things up. The beneficial thing about completing an intensive driving course is that you are learning day-to-day and not completing a lesson once a week or so. This means whatever you have learnt will be fresh in your mind and therefore easier to remember and implement when taking your test.

The average time that it will take from passing your driving test to receiving your full licence is usually around 3 weeks once you have applied. When you have passed your test you will be legally allowed to drive independently, however, make sure that you update your car insurance to cover you as a full UK licence holder and not provisional.

Can you drive alone?

Yes, once you have passed your driving test you are now legally allowed to drive independently. However, it may be a good idea to place some green pass-plates on your car once you start driving – this will warn other drivers that you are new to the roads and may need a little extra time when making decisions.

Unfortunately, within your first two years of driving, you are at the highest risk of being involved in a road accident due to inexperience. An advanced driving course is designed to help further build your confidence and skills to ensure you feel super confident driving on your own and will hopefully reduce your chances of any accidents.

If you have just passed your driving test but want to increase your confidence on the roads, sign up to our Advanced Driving Course today. Alternatively, if you are interested in starting your 5-day intensive driving course near Stevenage, get in touch to find out more.
