Intensive Driving Courses in Lambeth

Whether you live in Clapham or Streatham, PassMeFast is here to help you get on the road. You could pass with us in just a matter of weeks—read on to find out everything you need to know about our driving courses in Lambeth.

Booking a Course

At PassMeFast, we do things a bit differently to many driving schools. While we specialise in intensive courses, we don’t stipulate that you have to take all your lessons in a 5 day period, or shell out for expensive accommodation. Instead, we think that learner drivers deserve flexibility. After all, we’re sure you all have very busy lives. So, our instructors work around your schedule, arranging lessons to suit you. Also, if you need to be picked up from a different place to your home address, that’s not a problem either!

Interested in automatic driving lessons in Lambeth?

The majority of people in Britain drive cars with manual transmissions. However, automatic cars are becoming more and more popular. After all, what kind of learner wouldn’t want to skip those difficult hours spent mastering clutch control?

You do need to be aware, though, that if you choose to take your test in an automatic car you will be restricted to driving automatics—unless you retake your test in a manual. Also, while many people think that taking your test in an automatic will result in a guaranteed pass, this is far from the case. In fact, pass rates for tests taken in automatics are actually lower than for manuals!

Still, automatics represent a great option for many drivers. That’s why all our courses can be taken in both automatic and manual cars. If you’d like to get started, click here to book your automatic course now.

The best thing about us, though, is that we take away all the hassle that normally comes with learning to drive. As soon as you contact us, we’ll assign one of our DVSA-approved instructors, who will help you get on the road as soon as possible. We’ll also book both your practical and theory tests for you if required, helping you avoid the long waiting times that so often put learners off.

If you’re ready to get things moving in the right direction, pick up the phone and give us a call on 0333 123 4949, or click the button below to book online.

Practical Test Centres in Lambeth

There aren’t actually any practical test centres in the borough of Lambeth, but don’t worry—you won’t have to travel too far. The nearest practical test centre is Croydon, which is situated just a short drive from Lambeth, down Streatham High Road.

Theory Test Centres in Lambeth

Similarly, there are no theory test centres in the borough of Lambeth itself. Croydon is home to a theory test centre, which is around a half-hour drive from the centre of Lambeth. Alternatively, you could head to Southwark. This latter test centre will almost certainly be the closer option if you live towards the northern part of Lambeth.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

As is the case for your practical test, we can arrange your theory test at a time to suit you. Don’t forget to add it on during the booking process.

Driving Around Lambeth

You’ll gain plenty of experience driving round Lambeth during your lessons. The roads around this area vary from quiet residential streets all the way up to busy dual carriageways. As such, you’ll have to learn how to deal with a broad range of road features, including complex junctions and roundabouts. This might sound unfair compared to learners who hone their craft in more rural areas, but bear in mind that you’ll need to know how to deal with difficult situations throughout your driving career. After all, learning to drive isn’t just about passing a test!
