Intensive Driving Courses in Kensington and Chelsea

Many learner drivers in Kensington and Chelsea just can’t wait to get behind the wheel. The old way of doing things with a lesson a week is going out of style, our crash courses are shaking things up. Read on to find out how you could be on the road in just a few weeks with our intensive driving courses.

Booking Intensive Driving Lessons in Kensington and Chelsea

At PassMeFast, we like to think we’re a bit different to your average driving school. While many companies which offer intensive driving courses include expensive additions like a ‘guaranteed pass’, and stipulate that you need to take all your lessons in a space of 5 days, we do things a more flexible way.

So, if you need to fit lessons around a busy schedule, that’s fine—our instructors work evenings and weekends. Also, whether you need picking up from home or work, that’s also fine—we’re more than happy to accommodate your needs.

Interested in automatic intensive driving lessons in Kensington and Chelsea?

The majority of cars on UK roads have manual transmissions, and this is the type of car that most learners choose to take their test in too. However, automatic cars can be a really good option for some people, and they’re becoming more and more popular in the UK.

You do need to bear in mind that if you take your test in an automatic, you’ll have a licence that only permits you to drive automatic cars—unless you choose to retake your test. Still, at PassMeFast we think it should be your choice what type of car you learn to drive in, and that’s why you can take all of our courses in either an automatic or a manual.

If the prospect of skipping out those tiresome hours perfecting clutch control sounds appealing to you, click here to book your automatic course now.

Best of all, we take all the hassle out of learning to drive—something that we know puts many people off. As soon as you make a booking with us, we’ll assign you one of our DVSA-approved instructors, who will be with you every step of the way. We also book you a fast-tracked practical test, which gives you a concrete date to work towards. The whole process couldn’t be simpler, and you could be passed within a matter of weeks.

If this sounds like music to your ears, give us a call on 0333 123 4949, or click the button below to get things started right away.

Practical Test Centres in Kensington and Chelsea

The DVSA chose not to place any driving test centres in central London boroughs, like Kensington and Chelsea, for obvious reasons. So, this means you’ll have to travel a bit further afield to take your test. While this might sound like a lot of hassle, bear in mind that you’ll likely be driving on much less nerve-wracking roads than those in central London. Isleworth (Fleming Way) is the closest test centre to Kensington and Chelsea, so this is where most learners from the area head to.

Theory Test Centres in Kensington and Chelsea

Just like practical test centres, there is nowhere to take your theory test in Kensington and Chelsea either. Southwark is the most convenient theory test centre for learners in Kensington and Chelsea. It can easily be reached on public transport—just head to London Bridge railway or underground station.
