Intensive Driving Courses in Hammersmith and Fulham

Living in inner London doesn’t mean you can’t get behind the wheel. If you’re looking to leave the Tube and the red buses behind and explore the open road, come to PassMeFast. Read on to learn more about the driving courses we offer in Hammersmith and Fulham, and see how our driving school speeds up the journey to passing.

Booking a Course

PassMeFast doesn’t just offer a single type of course: our nine courses start from as little as five hours, for a very experienced learner, with our longest course being forty-eight hours long, suitable for total newcomers to driving. You can compare all of these courses side-by-side at our prices page.

With PassMeFast, you have the option to take your course at a fully intensive pace of up to 5 hours per day, or at a slower pace, with sessions as short as two hours. Our 10 hour course, for example, can be taken intensively over two days—or, if you’re busy at work, you could take a couple of hours each evening over a 5 day period.

Interested in automatic driving lessons in Hammersmith and Fulham?

Automatic cars are rapidly growing in popularity here in the UK, with more than a million new cars with automatic gearboxes registered in 2017. If you’re interested in joining the club, PassMeFast can help: all of our courses can be taken in either a manual or an automatic vehicle. Please note that prices may vary by transmission, and passing in an automatic car restricts you to driving automatic vehicles after passing. Get the full facts in our automatic vs manual guide.

We only work with DVSA-approved instructors, and all of our lessons are taught one-on-one. This ensures you’ll have the instructor’s full attention, and spend all of your course time building up your knowledge and skills ready for your test.

If you include a practical test as part of your course, we’ll even be able to fast-track it for you. This ensures that it will take place at a time and date that meets your requirements—and, better still, weeks ahead of the usual waiting times.

Practical Test Centres in Hammersmith and Fulham

As one of London’s smallest boroughs, the DVSA didn’t quite find the space to fit a practical test centre in Hammersmith and Fulham. This means that driving test hopefuls here will be taking their test in a different area of London. Don’t worry, though: our instructors offer home and workplace pickups for lessons and practical tests, saving you the hassle of battling your way through London public transport! The closest test centres to Hammersmith and Fulham can be found at Isleworth (Fleming Way) in neighbouring Hounslow, or Morden in Merton.

Theory Test Centres in Hammersmith and Fulham

Hammersmith and Fulham has no theory test centre to call its own, so local learners will have to head out of the borough to take their test. The borough lies roughly equidistant between the two closest test centres, both of which are south of the Thames: Southwark test centre to the east, and Kingston upon Thames to the southwest. Visit the theory test section of our blog for useful tips before you sit the test.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

You can book a PassMeFast course whether or not you’ve already taken your test. If you haven’t passed yet, though, you’ll need to include a theory test in with your booking—you can’t book a practical test without a valid theory pass. Check out our article on taking your theory test pass certificate to your practical test for more information.

Driving Around Hammersmith and Fulham

Despite its compact size, Hammersmith and Fulham provides drivers with a real variety of road conditions. To the north of the borough, you’ll find A roads with higher speed limits, such as the Westway, which runs north of White City. You’ll also find busy conditions near to popular shopping destinations such as Westfield London, while you can expect quieter traffic in residential areas around Fulham—though, here, the bigger issue may be narrow, car-lined streets.

Map of Hammersmith and Fulham within Greater London

Of course, with no test centre in the borough, you’ll additionally need to spend some of your driving lessons getting to know the area where your practical test will take place. With this experience under your belt, you’ll gain in confidence, becoming a safer and more skilled driver in the process. So, don’t pay thousands for a ‘guaranteed pass’: invest your driving future with a PassMeFast course.
