Booking Intensive Driving Lessons in Christchurch

Want to know what makes PassMeFast different to other companies?

Before you get to the matter of planning out your lessons, though, you’ll first need to choose which of our packages to go for.

Practical Driving Test Centres in Christchurch

Christchurch is unlucky enough to be one of the few large towns in Dorset to have neither a practical nor a theory test centre. Part of the reason for this, however, is that it forms part of a larger urban area together with nearby Bournemouth and Poole, which, combined, provide both services. The local practical test centre is found in Poole, with other nearby options being Southampton Maybush, Southampton Forest Hills and Salisbury. Now that you know where to go, why not read up on the manoeuvres that feature in the driving test?

Theory Test Centres in Christchurch

As we’ve mentioned, the conurbation surrounding Christchurch is home to both types of test centre. It’s Poole for the practical and Bournemouth for the theory! Elsewhere in Dorset, you can also take your theory test in Blandford Forum or Weymouth, or cross the Hampshire border to take your test in Southampton. Looking for handy revision resources? Visit the PassMeFast Blog, where we cover driving topics from dashboard warning lights to buying a new or used car.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

Not every learner realises that, under DVSA rules, you must pass your theory before you’re able to book a driving test. In fact, it’s required to take your theory test pass certificate to your practical! Save yourself the hassle of booking it by adding it onto your PassMeFast course. We’ll arrange your appointment for you, meaning you can focus on preparing!

Driving Around Christchurch

You may not realise it, but Christchurch is an excellent location for your driving lessons to take place. That’s because it’s home to a really varied set of roads: within a short distance of the town centre, you’ll come across major junctions like the Fountain Roundabout, one-way routes, dual carriageways, suburban streets and even rural areas. It may be a lot to get your head around at first, but don’t worry: you’ll have your instructor by your side to show you exactly what to do.

Once you’ve got a good handle of the car itself, you’ll be able to practise on more challenging roads. This will include venturing out to the area where your chosen test centre is located. By learning the roads in this location, you’ll feel much more comfortable on test day, as the roads that crop up during your practical are likely to be familiar to you. This should put your nerves at ease, and leave you with a great chance of bagging that pass.
