Intensive Driving Courses in Newbury
This area may be well known for its racecourse, but getting around on horseback isn’t the only way to travel here in Newbury. If you’re looking to explore the West Berkshire area by car, then PassMeFast can help you to get your driving licence in weeks. Read on to learn more about our intensive and semi-intensive courses, and see why so many learners have rated our driving school five-star.
Booking a Course
Want to learn to drive quickly, but don’t fancy the idea of booking one week off work to take all of your lessons? We’re with you. That’s why PassMeFast offers a range of courses that fit around your life, while still helping you to get on the road within just a few weeks of booking.
With options ranging from short refresher courses up to comprehensive packages for beginners, every learner can find something just for them at PassMeFast. (And we mean every learner: you’re never too old to pass!) Once you book, we’ll work on arranging a course that suits your needs, with fully intensive and semi-intensive options available. This means that you could complete our 25-hour course, for example, in a 5 day window—or spread lessons out over a longer period, while still passing fast.
Interested in automatic driving lessons in Newbury?
Automatic cars provide a way to get on the road without clutch control and gear changes. This means that, while they won’t bag you a guaranteed pass, they can help make the road to driving a little smoother for some learners. If that sounds good to you, be sure to book an automatic course with PassMeFast. Please note that prices vary by transmission.
Our courses are taught by experienced instructors with a near-encyclopaedic knowledge of the roads of West Berkshire. They’ll imbue you with the skills and confidence you need to breeze through your practical test and become a newly minted driver. During your course, you’ll also have your very own dedicated Booking Agent working behind the scenes to ensure everything’s going to plan—including securing you a fast-track test.
You can check out everything we have to offer simply by heading to our prices page—or get your own personalised option by heading to our course recommender. Made your mind up? Super! Book in over the phone by calling us on 0333 123 4949, or by clicking the big green button below.

Practical Test Centres in Newbury
When you first start your lessons, you’re likely to feel pretty nervous—but, over time, you’ll gain in confidence, and, before long, will feel ready to take your practical test. Great news—but where will you actually be taking it? If you live here in West Berkshire, the answer is likely to be the Newbury Hambridge Lane test centre. Alternatively, you also have the option of heading to Berkshire’s largest town to take your practical at the Reading test centre.
Theory Test Centres in Newbury
Newbury may be fortunate enough to have its own practical test centre, but its luck runs out when it comes to theory test centres. Berkshire only has two of them, after all—and neither are in Newbury. (This won’t get you out of having to take it, though—so be sure to swot up using our theory test revision resources!) Your best option is to hop on the train to Reading, with other nearby choices including Andover and Oxford.
Haven't taken your theory test yet?
Not only do you need to pass your theory test in order to book a practical, but it’s even advised that you bring your theory test certificate to your driving test. As you can imagine, then, it’s a good idea to get this sorted out in plenty of time. To do just that, remember to add a theory test onto your PassMeFast course when booking in.
Driving Around Newbury
When compared with Berkshire’s two other test centres, Reading and Slough, Newbury offers learners a decidedly more rural drive. Of course, this doesn’t mean it’ll be sleepy country lanes all the way—Newbury is also home to its fair share of busier roads, including the A339 dual carriageway which traverses the town north to south.
One important factor to note here is that the Newbury test centre is found on Hambridge Lane, a couple of miles east of the centre of town. In fact, it’s quite close to the Newbury Racecourse—so watch out for extra traffic on race days. All in all, you can certainly expect varied conditions on both your driving lessons and when taking to the road after passing!
