Is a 5-day driving course worth it?

I want to get my driver’s license as soon as possible, and my friend told me that a 5-day driving course could help. She wasn’t sure of the details, but I’m interested in learning the possible benefits of taking a “crash course.” Is it worth it or should I save my money and time?
