Intensive Driving Courses in Stroud

All too often, it can feel like you’ve found a great driving school—only to discover that there’s a catch involved. Some companies claim to help you get your licence quickly… when what they really mean is that they’ll make you take all of your lessons in a squeezed 5 day period. Others, meanwhile, offer more flexibility… by dragging lessons out over a period of months (or years!) And as for a ‘guaranteed pass’? Don’t get us started! Don’t fall for others’ false promises: come to PassMeFast, where we focus on helping our learners become safe drivers for life. Get the full scoop on our intensive crash courses in Stroud below.

Booking an Intensive Driving Course in Stroud

When looking for an instructor, it often seems like a good move to check out some of the ‘cheap’ driving lessons offered by traditional driving schools. Once you’ve added in the cost of the driving test, plus extra lessons during your excruciatingly long wait to take the practical, it can often prove to be a false economy. When you book with PassMeFast, though, the price you see is the price you pay—and our structured intensive driving courses mean that you can get your licence in just weeks, with no waiting around.

You’ll start by choosing from our range of intensive driving courses and prices, using our course recommender to find the option that fits you best. Once booked, you’ll control the pace of your lessons, with semi-intensive and fully intensive driving course structures available. Meanwhile, we turn the traditional way of doing things on its head by securing your practical test date early on. This gives you a date to work towards, ensuring no gaps between the end of your lessons and your test day.

Practical Driving Test Centres in Stroud

Though pass rates can vary by test centre, we believe it’s always best to take driving lessons in your local area. This helps you get to know the roads that you’ll be taking to every day once you’ve got your hands on a full UK driving licence. Stroud doesn’t have its own driving test centre, but local learners won’t need to look too far afield to find some great options: Gloucester and Cheltenham are both similar distances by road.

Driving Around Stroud

If you’re taking your driving lessons in the Stroud area, you’ll quickly notice that there’s plenty to get your head around. There are complex junctions in the town centre, narrow rural lanes further out, and even the prospect of completing hill starts! It may seem daunting, but don’t worry: your instructor will have you cruising confidently around town before you know it.

To help give you the best possible chance of passing your driving test, you’re also likely to be spending some of your lessons getting to know the area where your test will take place, likely Cheltenham or Gloucester. This means you’ll be knowledgeable about the area when it comes to test day, and can focus on responding to the conditions rather than adapting to unfamiliar roads.
