Intensive Driving Courses in Ealing

Whether you’re a total novice or a learner with plenty of experience behind the wheel, PassMeFast can help you to get your driving licence in just weeks. Learn more about our intensive and semi-intensive driving courses in Ealing, and find out we can help you beat the waiting times at the local test centres.

Booking a Course

When many learners set out looking for a driving school, they might think there are two options available to them: ‘traditional’ local schools, who offer only one lesson per week, or crash course companies, who’ll make you take all your driving lessons in a 5 day period. PassMeFast is here to prove all of that wrong.

We offer no fewer than nine different courses, from our beginners’ 48-hour course through to our 5-hour course for those looking to polish up their existing skills prior to taking a test. You decide the structure of your course: speed things up with a fully intensive option, or fit lessons around a busy schedule by going semi-intensive.

Interested in automatic driving lessons in Ealing?

In an area so close to central London, the occasional traffic jam is certainly no oddity—which means plenty of frustration for drivers. Long waiting times are an obvious reason for this. However, the actual driving process makes matters much worse: lots of clutch control is required here as you inch forward slowly, with short stretches of clear road requiring you to switch up a gear (and then almost immediately back down).

While we can’t do much about the waiting times, driving an automatic car means you can avoid the constant gear changes and clutch control, so you can make it home without tearing your hair out.

If you’d prefer to take your course in an automatic, PassMeFast is here to help. All nine of our courses can be taken in either a manual or an automatic car—the choice is yours.

No matter the timing of your lessons, you’ll be building up to a fast-track practical test, giving you a date to work towards and ensuring that there’s no gap between your lessons and test. Your dedicated Booking Agent, meanwhile, will handle all the admin work, letting you focus exclusively on the driving itself.

All of our lessons are taught one-on-one by local, experienced driving instructors who have the DVSA’s seal of approval. They’ll guide you through the process of learning to drive, helping you to gain both confidence and new skills. At the end of it, you’ll be sitting pretty with a fantastic chance of gaining your new full UK driving licence.

Practical Test Centres in Ealing

Once your lessons have come to an end, the time arrives for one of the most nerve-wracking moments in any driver’s life: the practical test. If you live in Ealing, you’ll have a choice over where to take this test, with three test centres located in the borough itself. Two of these can be found in the Greenford area: the main Horsenden Lane test centre and a pop-up test centre at Whitton Ave East. The latter was opened to cope with long driving test waiting times at the main test centre; as a result, the two are likely to share some test routes. You’ll also be able to head to the Southall test centre if you live in the southern half of the borough.

Theory Test Centres in Ealing

While Ealing may have its fair share of practical test centres, there are no theory test centres in Ealing itself. If you still need to take it, you will, therefore, have to travel. One of the better options for local learners is the Uxbridge test centre, which you can reach in around half an hour by taking the Piccadilly line. Alternatively, if you’d prefer to head into central London, you can instead book your appointment at Southwark test centre—to arrive here, take the Central line, then change to the Jubilee line at Bond Street, alighting at London Bridge.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

It’s still possible to book a PassMeFast course even if you haven’t passed your theory test. If this is the case, simply make sure to add a theory test onto your booking. Prepare by checking out our guide to passing the hazard perception section of the test.

Driving Around Ealing

Ealing’s learners will need to be able to cope with the slow pace and varied hazards of suburban traffic in addition to faster, busier roads heading into central London. In certain places, this difference is very stark—if driving around Greenford, for example, you may see a sudden jump from a 20mph speed limit to a 50mph limit as you join the A40. Those driving around Southall, meanwhile, may notice a preponderance of one-way systems in residential areas.

In addition to the local quirks, you’ll also need to gain experience on the exact same manoeuvres as everyone else in the country, including bay parking, parallel parking, and pulling up on the right. Thankfully, you’ll have a DVSA-approved, experienced and friendly instructor by your side, ready to teach you the ins and outs of even the most complex driving skills with patience. By the time your lessons are finished, you’ll be test-ready and will have a great chance of getting that licence first time. So, there’s no need to fork out thousands for another driving school’s ‘guaranteed pass’—come to PassMeFast!
