Intensive Driving Courses in Lewisham

Choosing the right driving school can be a make or break decision. Too often, learners get lured in by “guaranteed pass” promises that aren’t what they’re cracked up to be, and end up lumbered with lessons that proceed at a snail’s pace—or having to squeeze everything into a 5 day period, before being left hanging around for a test.

PassMeFast offers a better solution. With us, you’re in control. Our fast, flexible crash courses have already helped to write thousands of pass stories—and you could be next. To find out how, read on for information on our driving courses in Lewisham.

Interested in automatic driving lessons in Lewisham?

Manual cars have long been the most common type of vehicle on British roads—but times are beginning to change. More and more drivers are turning instead to automatic cars, whose lack of gears and clutch pedal can make them a smoother ride, especially in urban conditions.

It’s for this reason that PassMeFast offers its courses in both manual and automatic cars. Just visit our pricing page to check out what’s available—please note that pricing may vary by transmission.

Practical Driving Test Centres in Lewisham

Of the twelve London boroughs classed as Inner London, Lewisham is the only one with its own practical test centre. This is fantastic news for local learners, as it means you’ll be taking your test along the same kinds of roads you’ll be driving on every day. The local test centre here is at Hither Green, and lies close to the A20 and A205 (South Circular) roads. If you’re preparing for your test, and want some tips on what not to do, take a look at some of the top reasons people failed their driving test.

Theory Test Centres in Lewisham

While those living in Lewisham are fortunate enough to have a practical test centre on their doorstep, it’s a different situation when it comes to the theory test. You’ll need to travel to take this test—the closest options are Mile End, which you can reach by taking the DLR to Westferry, and Southwark, which requires a short train ride to London Bridge. For a fun way to test your skills, give our traffic signs quiz a whirl!

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

You can book a PassMeFast course even if you haven’t passed your theory test yet. However, you will need to ensure that you add it onto your booking—we won’t be able to book you a practical test until you pass your theory.

Driving Around Lewisham

Lewisham is the starting point of the A20, which links the area to Dover—and, if you’re looking to drive in Europe, onwards to the continent. This has ramifications for drivers here in Lewisham itself, with the route often proving incredibly busy. This is also the case for the A2, which takes a more northerly route to the same endpoint. With a large section of the South Circular Road also running through Lewisham, you’ll need to get acquainted with how to drive in urban conditions!

Map of Lewisham within Greater London

If taking your test at the local Hither Green test centre, you’re unlikely to encounter any country roads on your route. This isn’t to say, though, that it will be all main roads, all the time—you’ll be driving on a variety of routes with different speed limits and regulations, with a trip into Lewisham’s more residential areas likely when it comes to completing your manoeuvres.
