1 week intensive UK course will be approx 650 GBP.

40 lessons here will take you ages!

...and then you'll sit your test with 3 other no-hopers and an examiner who just doesn't care and will fail you all if one numbnuts does something he doesn't like.

Spugsy, for 650 quid and a couple of cheap flights, do it back in the UK mate. it's cheaper, you learn to drive and your licence is good almost everywhere in the world.

Hmm a crash course! These always worry me, as I think you need to gain some experience on the roads and a week's intensive training doesn't give you this.

Saying that, I have no idea whether or not you've had much driving experience on the roads in the UK.

Don't think anything prepares you for the bunch of numb-nutted wankers who are let loose on the roads here.

I do tend to agree with Mrs Mindy's statement, unless it is just a female thing, I used to drive round the leeds area before I moved here, so turned into what Mr Moto calls an "aggressive driver", this in the long run turned out to be of an advantage here with the nutters on the road.....

I've been driving since I was 16, illegally or with L plates on with the missus, so plenty of experience, I failed my test a few times when I was 17 and either wasted my money or spent it on other things rather than more driving lessons so never got roudn to getting my licence.

An intensive course would probably be ok for you then! Illegally .... tut tut tut!
