Interested in automatic driving lessons in Chesterfield?

Manual vs. automatic: which should you choose? The debate rages on over which is better, but here are the facts:

  • Automatic cars are a good option if you’re struggling with gear changes or clutch control
  • If you find yourself in stop-start traffic quite frequently, automatic cars will provide you with a smoother, less stressful drive
  • Manual cars, however, offer more control—plus, they’re generally cheaper both to buy and service
  • Passing in a manual allows you to drive both cars later on, but if you pass in an automatic, you won’t be able to legally drive a manual car

The choice, ultimately, is yours. The good news is that PassMeFast offers you both options; we have both manual and automatic courses in Chesterfield!

Meanwhile, you’ll take your lessons alongside a local, DVSA-approved driving instructor. With their experience and guidance, you’ll become a confident driver, adept at dealing with any situation you come across on the road. Best of all, you’ll be totally ready for your test. So, don’t waste money on “guaranteed pass” courses—come to a driving school that can help you pass first time. Start by calling us, or by clicking the button below.

Practical Test Centres in Chesterfield

Once you’re at the end of your course, it’s time for you to take your test—but where should you head? Luckily for learners in Chesterfield, the answer is: not very far! The Chesterfield practical test centre is conveniently located for learners here; alternatively, you could head to one of the other two Derbyshire test centres—Buxton or Derby—or the Sheffield Handsworth test centre.

Theory Test Centres in Chesterfield

Chesterfield is doubly lucky, as, unlike many other towns, it has both a practical and a theory test centre. As such, it could hardly be easier to take your test here—useful, as you’ll need to have passed your theory test before you can book a practical! If you’d rather head outside of Chesterfield, you may also wish to consider the Sheffield and Mansfield theory test centres.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

Taking your theory test lays the groundwork for your future as a driver. Be sure to add a theory test to your course if you haven’t passed yet. Why not prepare by checking out the history of the theory test?

Driving Around Chesterfield

In a town like Chesterfield, the switch from driving in a busy urban area to quieter, narrow rural roads can be near-instant. A learner here, therefore, will need to develop keen hazard perception skills to enable them to deal with the vast array of static and dynamic hazards they’re likely to encounter on local roads.

Map showing Chesterfield within Derbyshire

Near to Chesterfield test centre itself, you’ll find plenty of busier areas, including the A61, which features a tricky roundabout that you may well be asked to navigate. Conditions shift as you head out to the east of the town, with single-track roads a possibility. Though this might seem a bit daunting if you’re new to the whole driving game, you needn’t worry: by the end of your course, you’ll have gained the skills you need to be totally test-ready.
