Intensive Driving Courses in Harlow

Searching for lessons in Harlow? You could opt for a traditional driving school—but risk taking just one hour a week and thus stretching the process of learning to drive over months. You could also go for a 5-day crash course—only to realise the schedule is so inflexible that you need to book one week off work to take all your lessons, then yet more time (much later on) for a test. Or, you could make the savvy choice and come to PassMeFast for our flexible crash courses. Our range of intensive and semi-intensive courses are designed to help all learners get the best in teaching quality, and to pass fast regardless of prior experience—even on a busy schedule.

Booking Intensive Driving Lessons in Harlow

Intensive driving courses aren’t a new concept—but the way PassMeFast works breaks the mould. For starters, while some companies assume that the same course will suit every learner, we take individuals into account. Head to our courses and prices page, and you’ll see options for complete beginners, those who just need one last push, and everyone in between.

Unlike some driving schools, which only book a practical test once a learner is at the end of their lessons, we’ll secure you a fast-track driving test as a priority. This means that you’ll have a seamless transition between your lessons and test, with your newly gained driving skills fresh in your mind.

Interested in automatic intensive driving lessons in Harlow?

While automatic cars won’t grant you a guaranteed pass, they can make the process of learning to drive a bit easier if you’re struggling with gear changes or clutch control. Luckily, PassMeFast offers courses in cars with both types of transmission—so, if you’d prefer to learn in an automatic, you can choose to do just that! Please note that prices may vary by transmission.

Your course hours will be spent learning alongside a DVSA-approved instructor, whose experience, local knowledge and (crucially!) patience will help form good driving habits that last. You’ll also have your very own dedicated Booking Agent here at PassMeFast HQ, working tirelessly to sort out any admin and always ready to answer any questions you may have.

We’ve helped thousands of learners across the UK to pass their test fast. So, if you’re interested in joining them, simply give us a call on 0333 123 4949.

Practical Driving Test Centres in Harlow

Despite being one of the largest towns in Essex, Harlow doesn’t have its own practical test centre. Local learners need not fret, though: with home and workplace pickups coming as standard as part of any PassMeFast course, getting to your driving lessons and test should be a breeze! The closest options to Harlow include Loughton and Brentwood here in Essex, as well as Enfield in Greater London and Bishops Stortford in Hertfordshire.

Theory Test Centres in Harlow

Though Harlow may not have its own practical test centre, there’s some consolation for local learners: you can take your theory test right here at the Harlow theory test centre! This is good news, as the closest alternatives otherwise are in Greater London—specifically the Ilford and Southgate centres. If you’re preparing to sit the test, don’t forget to check out the theory test articles on our blog, which cover everything from the rules around contraflow systems to sitting the test with dyslexia.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

Did you know that you can’t book a practical test without a valid theory test pass? This can cause a few issues if, by the time you’re approaching the end of your driving lessons, you still haven’t taken your theory. To avoid this, be sure to add a theory test onto your course when booking with PassMeFast. We’ll arrange everything for you, giving you peace of mind.

Driving Around Harlow

When taking your course with us, you’ll likely start out taking your lessons on roads close to home, before progressing onto potential test routes. Given the lack of a test centre in Harlow itself, this means you’re likely to spending at least some of your lesson time in nearby Loughton to ensure you’re familiar with any specific road features that could trip you up come your practical test.

Map of Harlow within Essex

If you are indeed taking your test in Loughton, you’ll notice that the test begins amidst a row of shops—not quite the offices or industrial estates that usually host test centres! Watch out for the mini-roundabouts on the A121 just to the north, and don’t miss the opportunity to take motorway lessons on the nearby M11. By the time you’re on the road after passing, you’ll be glad to have had the experience!
