Intensive Driving Courses in Brentwood

Taking to the road in Brentwood gives you the freedom to explore nearby London, the entire county of Essex, or simply to visit family and friends in the local area. Here at PassMeFast, we believe that freedom should be available to everyone—and that you should be able to get your licence as quickly as possible. That’s why we said no to traditional driving lessons and inflexible 5-day crash courses, and came up with a new way to pass.

Booking Intensive Driving Lessons in Brentwood

PassMeFast is an intensive driving school, but not as you may know it. You see, other schools think it’s okay to ask learners to drop any prior commitments to take their lessons, and see nothing wrong in only offering a single, 5-day course. Here’s the thing, though: not all learner drivers are the same. That’s why we offer lessons that work around you—not the other way around.

With courses ranging from a 10-hour refresher up to a 48-hour beginner package, you’re free to choose a number of lessons that suits you, taking your previous driving experience and confidence level into account. You can even check out our course recommender if you’re not sure—it takes just a few quick questions to determine the ideal option for you.

Interested in automatic intensive driving lessons in Brentwood?

Manual cars were once the only option for drivers—but times have changed. Automatic cars are more popular than ever, and, while they can’t secure you a guaranteed pass, they can make it easier to learn to drive if you’re having trouble getting the hang of gear changes and clutch control. If you’d prefer to learn in an automatic, simply choose this transmission type when booking with PassMeFast.

Once booked in, we’ll assign you a local, DVSA-approved instructor. We won’t force you into a set timetable—instead, you and your instructor will come up with a plan that works for you, with the option to go for either a fully intensive or semi-intensive course structure. Meanwhile, you’ll also have a dedicated Booking Agent working behind the scenes on the admin for your course, including finding you that all important fast-track practical test. This means you could get your licence within weeks, even on a busy schedule!

Thousands of drivers on the road got their licence with PassMeFast, and we’d love to help you to be the next. If you’re interested, check out our full range of courses over at our prices page.
