Intensive driving course tombola initiated.. we better be offered interviews and move to Japan now.. I am very happy as a non-driver and having to get a licence to be accepted on the programme is a little disappointing..

Anyway, details given to a "fast track" website to find me a test and instructor.. let's hope with the current backlog, I can actually do the needful before next Spring.

I also hope the lessons and test aren't in the dead of winter.. icy roads are not going to be an overly frequent driving condition in Shikoku..

I remember my first driving lesson was in 10cm of snow. It was lots of fun and I now look forward to driving in snow.

@wizardofosmium Did you do an intensive course or did you learn the standard way over "seasons".. it's not that I mind driving on a bit of snow/ice but I don't want that to be the condition of the entire learning and testing experience..

@jk
It was back in the early 1980s and from first lesson to passing (1st time) it took 99days. I wasn't doing an intensive course.
There's one thing I remember from the day of my lesson, I had heard that there were more passes in the morning than in the afternoon so I asked my instructor, he thought carefully and admitted that it was true. Things might have changed since.

@wizardofosmium interesting, I think pre-apocalypse the standard was afternoon tests for intensive courses .. the pass rate for automatic tests is pretty low (about 44% last time I checked so) so fingers crossed, given the variables are somewhat outside of my control.
