Intensive Driving Courses in Croydon

If you’re looking to take driving lessons in Croydon, but don’t want to wait around for months to take your test, then PassMeFast could be the answer to your prayers. Our intensive and semi-intensive driving courses help learners to pass their test just weeks after making their initial booking. Read on for everything you need to know about our driving school, including information on how to book your crash course.

Booking Intensive Driving Lessons in Croydon

PassMeFast aims to speed up and simplify every learner’s journey to passing. Unlike other driving schools, we won’t drag your course out over a long period of time. Instead, we offer a focused intensive driving course that enables you to learn all the skills you need to get up to test standard in just weeks—or even days.

Our flexibility makes us different. No, we're not all regulars down at Croydon Yoga Hub — but, while some companies only offer a single type of driving course, we have several different options to choose from, all of which can be found on our prices page.

Interested in automatic intensive driving lessons in Croydon?

While manual cars are often seen as the default choice for learners, they’re not the only option. Automatic cars are, in fact, rising in popularity—and with no clutch pedal nor gears to deal with, it’s easy to see why.

If you’re weighing up whether or not to go auto, be sure to get the facts first. Don’t be fooled into thinking they’re an easy option: their reputation as a ticket to a ‘guaranteed pass’ is vastly overstated. In fact, manual vs automatic pass rate stats show that automatic pass rates are actually lower!

However, if you know that you’re going to be driving almost exclusively in urban areas after passing your test, and you’re looking for a car that makes it a little easier to drive in very slow city traffic, an automatic car could be the way to go.

Whichever way you make your mind up, PassMeFast can help. All of our courses are available in both manual and automatic cars. The decision is up to you!

You’ll also be able to spread your lessons out to fit your schedule. Our twenty-hour course, for example, could be taken over a 5-day period, with 4 hours of lessons per day—or, alternatively, you could take two hours per day over a couple of weeks.

No matter your preferences, you’ll still be able to get your licence well ahead of the usual waiting times, thanks to PassMeFast’s fast-track practical test service. Meanwhile, your lessons will always be taught one-on-one by a local, DVSA-approved instructor—and you’ll even have your very own Booking Agent, dedicated to sorting out all the behind-the-scenes work for you.

If you’re looking for a driving school that takes care of the admin and lets you get on with the driving, you don’t have to look far. Come to PassMeFast: call us on 0333 123 4949 to speak to our sales team, or click below to go straight to our online booking form.

Practical Driving Test Centres in Croydon

Some London boroughs make choosing a practical test centre tricky—either because there are several to choose from, or because there are none at all. Thankfully, Croydon makes things easy for local learners, with just one practical test centre located here. Most learners here, therefore, will be heading to the Croydon practical test centre, which can be found to the north-west of the town centre, a short drive from the Valley Retail Park.

Theory Test Centres in Croydon

Croydon is one of only a handful of London boroughs with both a practical and a theory test centre within its borders. So, if you’re yet to click your way to theory test pass glory, you won’t need to travel far to do so: the Croydon theory test centre can be found in the middle of town. Feeling a bit nervous before taking your test? Allay your fears and get the facts by reading our article dispelling some of the top theory test myths.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

Some learners don’t realise it, but your tests must be taken in a specific order: you must pass your theory test before being able to book a practical. Don’t worry, though—even if you haven’t passed your theory yet, you can still book a PassMeFast course! Just be sure to add a theory test onto your booking.

Driving Around Croydon

During your lessons, you’ll spend plenty of time getting to know every nook and cranny of Croydon’s roads. This will include everything from dual carriageways such as the A23 (Purley Way) through to residential areas like Thornton Heath, where you may find yourself navigating narrow roads lined on either side with parked cars. Remember to watch out for double red lines, too—stopping at any time is forbidden here, so make sure you don’t pull over onto one of them accidentally!

New drivers might find all of this a bit overwhelming to begin with, but don’t worry: at PassMeFast, you’ll receive one-on-one tuition from your instructor, ensuring that you’ll be able to complete the most challenging manoeuvres and drive on even the busiest roads without breaking a sweat.
