Read on for all the details you need to know about the intensive driving courses we have to offer.

Booking Intensive Driving Lessons in Stockton-on-Tees

You may not realise it, but more work goes into learning to drive than simply getting behind the wheel. First, you’ll need to figure out how many driving lessons you’ll need. With PassMeFast, you won’t need to pick between slow, weekly lessons and restrictive 5 day courses. Instead, we offer a wide range of options, all of which can be found at our list of prices. We even have our own course recommender, which provides you with a quote tailored to your needs and prior experience.

Next, there’s the job of finding a good driving instructor. For many learners, this can be a tricky search. PassMeFast, however, makes things simple. We have a fleet of DVSA-approved instructors operating across our coverage area. They’ll offer you top-quality tuition, along with convenient touches such as home and workplace pickups.

Interested in automatic intensive driving lessons in Stockton-on-Tees?

While learning in an automatic car won’t bring you a guaranteed pass, it can be a lifesaver if your main stumbling blocks include clutch control or gear changes. That’s why we offer our students the opportunity to go auto. Simply select automatic as your transmission of choice when you book in, and we’ll pair you up with a local instructor.

Lastly, there’s the admin to sort out. This is PassMeFast’s secret weapon. You see, unlike others, our driving school doesn’t merely offer the lessons themselves. We accelerate your journey by offering fast-tracked tests. This way, you could get your licence well ahead of the usual waiting times. You’ll even have a dedicated member of staff to call throughout your course.

As you can see, the road to driving doesn’t have to be long. Choose a PassMeFast intensive driving course, and you could be weeks away from saying those magic words: “I’ve passed!” To get started, call us on 0333 123 4949, or book online.

Practical Driving Test Centres in Stockton-on-Tees

Stockton-on-Tees doesn’t have its own test centre, meaning that learners looking to take their practical locally will need to visit Middlesbrough, Darlington or Hartlepool instead. Want to know more about the test itself? Check out our blog for useful articles, covering topics such as the driving test app used to mark tests.

Theory Test Centres in Stockton-on-Tees

Looking into taking your theory test? For learners in this part of the world, the Middlesbrough theory test centre is likely to be the most convenient option. If you’re looking at adding extra options into the mix, check out Northallerton in North Yorkshire or Sunderland in Tyne and Wear.

Driving Around Stockton-on-Tees

Taking your lessons in the Stockton area gives you a well-rounded education in virtually any road type you could think of. In the vicinity, you’ll find A roads carrying the national speed limit, as well as busy dual carriageways in the town centre. However, you’ll also come across quieter, residential areas, and it takes just a 10-minute drive to head out from the middle of Stockton to more rural parts of County Durham.

Adding to this complexity is the fact that, as Stockton doesn’t have its own test centre, you’ll also need to get to grips with the roads in another area—likely to be Middlesbrough. There’s no need to panic, though. During your lessons, your PassMeFast instructor will help you to grow in confidence and build up your skills progressively. By the time your test date comes around, you’ll be familiar with local road features and ready to impress your examiner.
