Intensive Driving Courses in Poole

Getting your licence in Poole doesn’t have to be a long, hard process. With PassMeFast, you could pass your test within weeks—not months! Read on for full details of the intensive driving courses we offer here in Poole, and see how we can save you time at every stage of your journey.

Booking intensive driving lessons in Poole

Back when PassMeFast first started, it had a mission: to change the face of driving tuition. Instead of focusing on weekly lessons like many other driving schools, we decided to put together tailored packages that could help learners to get their licence quickly. What’s more, unlike certain providers, we won’t make you fork out for accommodation so that you can spend a 5-day period learning—and we won’t lure you in with promises of a “guaranteed pass”.

Getting started with us is as easy as visiting our courses and prices page and deciding which intensive driving course is right for you. You can also try out our course recommender, which gives you a quote based on a few quick questions. Additionally, you’ll be able to include both theory and practical tests with your course—and we’ll fast-track them to take place well ahead of the usual waiting times!

Interested in automatic intensive driving lessons in Poole?

With automatic licences becoming more popular across the UK, many learners may be wondering if it’s possible to take a PassMeFast course in an auto. We’re pleased to say that you can! In fact, we have instructors offering automatic lessons here in the Poole area, meaning you can learn with the gearbox of your choice. Simply ensure that you select an automatic course when you book.

After booking in, we’ll assign one of our instructors in the Poole area to take you for your course. You’ll then decide on the pace of your lessons, with both fully intensive and semi-intensive options available. No matter how you choose to learn, you’ll benefit from our instructors’ experience and comprehensive teaching, giving you the best chance of driving away from your practical test with a pass certificate in hand.

With thousands of success stories under our belt already, it’s clear that our intensive courses create safe, confident drivers. If you’re looking to join them, then simply call us on 0333 123 4949. You can also head straight to our online form to book your course via our website.

Practical Driving Test Centres in Poole

Dorset isn’t exactly replete with practical test centres, with only two of them calling the county home. Don’t worry, though: one of those two test centres is right here in Poole! The other option in the county is off to the west, in Dorchester, while the closest alternative is to the north in Salisbury.

Theory Test Centres in Poole

Poole may have its own practical test centre, but local learners will need to travel if they want to take the theory test. It’s only a short jaunt to the nearby town of Bournemouth, though, so there’s no need to put off making this journey! If you need a backup, then try out the test centres in Blandford Forum, Salisbury or Weymouth.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

While many learners believe that the theory test can be answered with nothing more than common sense, the reality is that the questions can be trickier than they first appear, spanning everything from when you can use the hard shoulder to who has priority at an unmarked crossroads. And that’s not even taking into account the hazard perception section! We suggest buckling down and studying, while leaving the matter of booking the test to us. Add it onto your PassMeFast course, and we’ll arrange your appointment for you.

Driving Around Poole

While practising outside of lessons can prove a useful supplement to your learning, nothing beats driving with a qualified instructor. Only an approved driving instructor will know the full ins and outs of the driving test as it currently stands, and they’ll be best placed to ensure that you avoid picking up any bad driving habits that could count against you during your test. As an added benefit, they’re also likely to know many of the roads that frequently pop up on driving tests in Poole.

Map showing Poole within Dorset

During your lessons, you’ll realise just how broad an area could feature on local test routes. In fact, examiners have been known to take learners anywhere from the suburbs between Poole and Bournemouth up towards outlying areas like Broadstone, Oakley and Wimborne Minster. Add into that a variety of A roads, residential streets and rural areas, and there’s a lot to take into account here—but after your lessons, you’ll be well prepared.
