Intensive Driving Courses in Widnes

With so much to explore in and around the Widnes area (as well as further afield), it’s always a good time to learn to drive in Widnes. If you live in Widnes, Cronton, or Hale, however, it may take less time than you think. That’s because PassMeFast’s intensive and semi-intensive courses are available in Widnes, helping you to get your licence fast. Read on to learn more about our crash courses.

Booking Intensive Driving Lessons in Widnes

We all know how driving lessons used to work: lessons once a week, a slow pace, and a long wait for a practical test. Other companies, meanwhile, thought that making all learners do the same 5 day course was the answer—but it didn’t work for everyone.

At PassMeFast, we thought that there had to be a better way. That’s why we created nine driving courses, which you can take over a period of days or weeks—not months. Our courses are all of different lengths for learners with different levels of prior experience, meaning you have personalised driving lessons.

Interested in automatic intensive driving lessons in Widnes?

While manual cars have typically been more popular in the UK, more and more people have been tempted to try out automatic cars in recent years. If you’re one of them, then you’re in luck, as PassMeFast’s courses can all be taken in automatic cars. Remember, though, that automatic cars aren’t necessarily easier to learn in, and won’t represent a guaranteed pass. You also won’t be able to drive a manual car if you pass in an automatic, so think carefully before deciding to take automatic lessons!

So, do our intensive driving courses work? The answer is yes! Hundreds of learners have already got their licence with us—just check out some of our great customer reviews!

Our courses include:

At the end of your course, you’ll be perfectly prepped to take (and pass!) your practical, leaving you as the proud owner of a full driving licence.

Practical Driving Test Centres in Widnes

Fortunately for learners in the Widnes area, it’s easy to take your test here. That’s because Widnes has its own practical test centre, which is located in Ditton. The closest train station to this test centre is Hough Green, which is around 17 minutes away on foot. However, your instructor should normally be able to take you to and from your lessons and tests. Aside from the Widnes practical test centre, other nearby options can be found in Garston, St Helens and Warrington.

Theory Test Centres in Widnes

Many people aren’t aware that you need to take your theory test prior to booking your practical—it isn’t possible to take them the other way around. So, passing your theory test in good time is crucial, and can help us to secure an early practical test date. The most convenient test centres for most learners in Widnes are likely to be St Helens and Liverpool, which can be reached by bus. Other nearby centres include Wigan and Chester.
