Intensive Driving Courses in Hounslow

Residents of Hounslow are in the perfect position to get out and explore some of England’s most beautiful countryside, including the famous Surrey Hills. So, it’s no wonder that so many people in this borough are raring to hit the road. PassMeFast helps make that process quick and simple. Read on to find out how you could be on the road in a matter of weeks with one of our intensive courses.

Booking A Course

PassMeFast does things a little bit differently to other driving schools. We specialise in intensive courses, but this doesn’t mean that you have to take all your lessons within a 5 day period, like with some other companies. Instead, our instructors work around your busy schedules. So, no matter how time-consuming your commitments are, we’ll be able to help you get that elusive pink licence.

Interested in automatic driving lessons in Hounslow?

Most British motorists drive manual cars, for a number of reasons. For instance, automatic cars used to be much more expensive than their manual equivalents, although this has changed in recent years. Also, automatic gearboxes used to be very inefficient and require bigger, thirstier engines to work; although this is also changing.

More and more people in the UK are buying cars with automatic transmissions, and for understandable reasons these cars also represent an attractive proposition to many learner drivers. After all, who wouldn’t want to skip the hassle of learning clutch control, which can take many hours?

There are a couple of things to be aware of if you’re thinking of learning to drive in an automatic car though. The first of these is that if you take your test in an automatic car, you can only legally drive automatic cars in the future; unless you choose to retake your test.

The second thing to be aware of is that taking a test in an automatic car is by no means a guaranteed pass. In fact, pass rates are actually lower in automatic cars overall. Still, at PassMeFast we know that every learner is different, so all of our courses are available in both automatic and manual cars. If automatic sounds like a step in the right direction to you, click here to book your automatic course.

What’s more is that we take the hassle out of learning to drive. As soon as you contact us, our team members will assign you one of our DVSA-approved instructors who will guide you along your driving journey, from start to finish. You don’t even need to worry about booking your test—we take care of everything so that you don’t have to.

Driving Around Hounslow

Like all London boroughs, the Hounslow area contains a wide variety of driving challenges that you’ll need to know how to deal with when it comes to your test. One particularly important thing to note is that Hounslow is home to the most dangerous roundabout in west London—the Hogarth Roundabout that joins the A316 and the A4. Naturally, this roundabout demands particular attention.
