Booking Intensive Driving Lessons in Saffron Walden

If you’re familiar with intensive driving lessons, the phrase may conjure certain images in your mind. You might expect to have to drop all your plans, travel away from home and take all your lessons over a 5-day period.

We take a different approach to intensive driving lessons. With us, you decide the pace of your course. So, if you do have plenty of free time, you’re free to take up to 5 hours’ worth of lessons per day. If, on the other hand, you want to pass fast, but need to balance driving with work and family commitments, we can create a plan that works for you, with lessons in blocks of as little as two hours.

Meanwhile, where one-week courses assume that all learners are starting from scratch, we know that those who come to us have a broad range of experience. That’s why we offer beginner courses, short refresher courses, and a whole lot more in between. You can see all of them on our prices page—or visit our course recommender to discover which is best for you.

Interested in automatic intensive driving lessons in Saffron Walden?

PassMeFast offers learners a choice of manual and automatic vehicles to learn in, meaning you can choose the option that works best for you. Simply specify an automatic course when booking in—and be aware that prices may vary by transmission.

Learning alongside a DVSA-approved instructor, you’ll spend the course focusing on the areas you need to to get ready for your practical. So, whether you need to work up from the basics, polish off those manoeuvres, or simply have issues with that one local roundabout (there’s always one!) we can help you banish your bugbears and take to the road with confidence.

Practical Driving Test Centres in Saffron Walden

Here in this corner of north-western Essex, there are, sadly, no practical test centres to be found. This means that learners will have to look elsewhere after finishing their lessons—either to a different part of Essex, such as Loughton or Chelmsford, or across the county border to Bishops Stortford in Hertfordshire, or one of the various Cambridge test centres. No matter which you choose, be sure to check out our guide offering 5 ways to impress your driving examiner!

Theory Test Centres in Saffron Walden

With theory test centres largely confined to large towns and cities, it’s unfortunate but unsurprising to learn that there are none to be found here in Saffron Walden. Nonetheless, there’s no getting around taking your theory test, so you’ll need to travel to a nearby test centre. The easiest option by public transport is Cambridge, while Harlow and Chelmsford are similar distances away by road. If you’re still studying for the test, meanwhile, find out more about our Sorted game—a fun way to separate real traffic signs from some cleverly designed fakes!

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

Getting your theory test passed is incredibly important—without it, you can’t book a practical! That’s why we give learners two pieces of advice. First, prepare for theory test success with plenty of revision (there’s no such thing as a guaranteed pass, after all!). Second, take the stress out of organising your test by adding it to your PassMeFast course. We’ll arrange your theory test for you, and can even fast-track your test date!

Driving Around Saffron Walden

As Saffron Walden doesn’t have a test centre of its own, local learners will need to head outside of town for their lessons. This may seem like a bit of an inconvenience, but there’s a good reason for it: getting to know the area where you’re due to take your practical test means that you won’t be taken by surprise by any unfamiliar road features. Practice makes perfect, after all!

Plus, with a PassMeFast course, you won’t need to worry about getting to and from your lessons and tests. That’s because home and workplace pickups come as standard. Simply get behind the wheel with your local, experienced instructor, and start working on getting that licence!
