Driving in and around Hastings

There are certain things learners worry about when it comes to the driving test, from stalling to getting stuck in traffic. One of the biggest issues, however, can be not knowing how to deal with a specific road feature. Imagine not knowing the rules regarding roundabouts, for example—or ending up on an incline with no idea of how to perform a hill start.

Driving Schools in Hastings

Instead of learning to drive with an independent driving instructor, some people choose to learn with a driving school. Driving schools tend to offer a slower, more traditional approach to learning to drive than intensive course specialists like PassMeFast.  

The major downside of the traditional 1- or 2-hour weekly lesson is that you don’t get to book a test until your instructor thinks you are ready — and with most test centres in East Sussex being fully booked months in advance, you could end up waiting a long time (and wasting money on lessons to stop your skills from getting rusty while you wait). 

PassMeFast works around you and your schedule, and your lessons will be at a pace that works for you in a modern, goal-focused way. PassMeFast is the faster and easier route to driving — we’ll do all the admin, our courses include a fast-tracked practical test date, and your driving instructor will pick you up from home or work.
