Intensive Driving Courses in Kingston upon Thames

As the only borough in London not to be served by the Tube, Overground, Tramlink, or even the upcoming Crossrail service, driving is more of a necessity in Kingston upon Thames than perhaps anywhere else in the capital. Thankfully, PassMeFast’s intensive driving courses can help you to get on the road here quickly, without compromising on quality. Keep reading for all the information you need on our driving school, and the lessons and crash courses we offer here in Kingston upon Thames.

Booking Intensive Driving Courses in Kingston upon Thames

Intensive driving courses don’t have to be about squeezing all your lessons into a 5 day timeframe. If you’d rather avoid booking one week’s holiday, but still want to get your licence within weeks, PassMeFast are the driving school to turn to.

We’ve got form in helping a wide variety of learners to pass their test. It doesn’t matter how much experience you’ve already had, how confident you’re feeling, or whether or not you have special requirements, such as learning to drive with dyspraxia: we can help you get the job done.

Unlike some companies, who only offer a single type of course, there are nine different PassMeFast courses to choose from. Available to compare side-by-side on our prices page, our courses are tailored to suit total newcomers, highly experienced learners, and everyone in between.

Interested in automatic intensive driving lessons in Kingston upon Thames?

Once upon a time, almost every car on Britain’s roads had manual transmission. Now, however, times are changing, and automatic cars are soaring in popularity.

Going auto definitely brings some benefits: with no gears and no clutch to worry about, you’ll experience much less hassle when driving in urban traffic.

However, an auto car isn’t an easy ride. In fact, with automatic pass rates actually standing below those in manual cars, anyone hoping for a guaranteed pass will be sorely disappointed.

Our advice is to remember that driving any car, regardless of transmission, requires the same level of skill and attention. Put in the work, and you’ll master the road—in either manual or automatic.

PassMeFast offers all of its courses in both automatic and manual cars, so the power is in your hands. Please note that prices may vary depending on your chosen transmission.

We also ensure that the scheduling of the driving lessons you take with us fits with your test date. To achieve this, we’ll book your test date in advance, before assigning you one of our DVSA-approved instructors. You won’t be left hanging around, though—thanks to our fast-track department, you can beat the long driving test waiting times. In fact, our students pass weeks or even months ahead of what is normally possible.

With comprehensive and flexible courses available across London, there are so many great reasons to choose PassMeFast’s courses in Kingston upon Thames. To book with us, call 0333 123 4949 to speak to our friendly sales team, or go straight to our booking form by clicking the button below.

Theory Test Centres in Kingston upon Thames

There aren’t many theory test centres in Greater London—despite the capital’s sizeable population, the DVSA has just eight test centres scattered across the county. Luckily, one of those test centres just so happens to be right here in Kingston upon Thames, just to the south of the town centre. This won’t leave you much time to revise on the bus there, but you might just have a few moments to check out our last-minute theory test tips!

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

Not having passed your theory test doesn’t mean that you can’t book a PassMeFast course. It does, however, stop you from booking a practical test. For this reason, you’ll need to add a theory test onto your course if you haven’t passed yet.

You won’t be able to practise an exact test route during your driving lessons—the DVSA no longer publishes them. However, by gaining solid experience on all types of roads in Kingston upon Thames, you’ll be prepared for everything the practical test (and everyday driving) can throw at you.
