Intensive Driving Courses in Weymouth

If you’re looking to learn to drive in Weymouth, you might despair at the prospect of having to stretch your lessons over months. You may be tempted, then, to try another company that promises to pack things into a 5 day period—but what they don’t tell you is that you’ll have to wait weeks after this to take your test. There has to be a better way… and that’s PassMeFast. Read on to see why our courses here in Weymouth and Portland are so groundbreaking, and to find out how to book.

Booking a Course

While some driving schools content themselves to offer learners only a single option, PassMeFast has a selection of courses and prices to choose from. Each of these is tailored towards a learner at a specific point in their driving journey, from novice to near-expert. Unsure which to go for? Have a go at our course recommender to get a quote!

After you’ve booked, one of the first things we’ll take care of is securing you a fast-tracked test. This gives you a date to work towards during your lessons, and enables you to structure your course in a way that suits you best. So, whether you’re looking to complete all of your lessons in as short a time period as possible, or take things a little easier, PassMeFast can help you make it happen.

Practical Test Centres in Weymouth

Though many learners assume that there’s a practical test centre in virtually every town, the reality is that the number of centres is quite limited. Weymouth isn’t home to a practical test centre, meaning local learners will need to travel to either Dorchester, Poole or Yeovil to get the job done. Before you take your test, be sure to check out some of our useful driving test articles, from the age at which you can drive in the UK to the top reasons people failed their practical.

Theory Test Centres in Weymouth

Worried about Weymouth’s lack of a practical test centre? Cheer up, local learners: it’s not all doom and gloom! There is a theory test centre here in Weymouth, meaning you can get this part of your driving journey sorted close to home. Other alternatives include Yeovil, Blandford Forum and Bournemouth. Don’t skip our hazard perception advice before heading to the local test centre!

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

The theory test is one of the most important parts of learning to drive, and it doesn’t come with a guaranteed pass. That’s why we highly recommend leaving time between your theory test and the date on which you’d like your practical to take place. To help ensure that you can secure a suitable appointment, let us book it for you by adding it onto your PassMeFast course!

Driving Around Weymouth

While the process of learning to drive is different for every learner, there are certain things we all have to master. These include everything from cockpit checks through to parallel parking. It also means, however, knowing how different types of pedestrian crossing, junction and road can affect your drive. That’s why your instructor will ensure that your driving lessons incorporate as many of these as possible, helping to form you into a well-rounded driver.

Map showing Weymouth within Dorset

While some of your lessons will take place in the Weymouth and Portland area, there’s a good chance that you’ll also be travelling up the A354 towards Dorchester for at least some of your course hours. This will ensure that you’re familiar with the roads that are likely to appear during your practical, from major junctions down to narrow side streets. Once you feel familiar with this area, you’ll be much more at ease when it comes to taking the test for real.
