Intensive Driving Courses in Westminster

Home to such landmarks as the Houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace, Westminster is one of London’s best-known areas. If you’re looking for a driving school that can help you navigate through these busy streets, PassMeFast is here to help. Read on to find out all about our courses in Westminster.

Booking A Course

PassMeFast specialises in intensive driving courses, but we do things a little bit differently to many other driving schools. For instance, rather than offer an expensive ‘guaranteed pass’ that’s actually nothing of the sort, or demand that you complete all your lessons over a 5 day period, we put you in control. So, you can take your lessons on an intensive or semi-intensive basis, at times that suit you—including evenings and weekends!

Interested in automatic driving lessons in Westminster?

While the majority of drivers in the country still use cars with manual transmissions, more and more people are opting for automatic cars. An automatic gearbox is particularly appealing in an area such as Westminster, where heavy traffic means that repetitive use of the clutch is a necessity.

At PassMeFast, all of our courses are available in both manual and automatic cars, so the choice is all yours. Click here to book your automatic course now.

The first thing that we do is secure your test date and assign you one of our DVSA-approved instructors. From here on in, you can be sure that you’ll be in safe hands. For further peace of mind, you should know that all of our lessons are taught one-on-one, and our instructors can pick you up from your home or your place of work.

If you’d like to get things moving, pick up the phone and give us a call on 0333 123 4949, or click the button below to book your course in a matter of minutes.

Practical Test Centres in Westminster

Because Westminster is located so centrally, there are no test centres in the borough itself. This is for obvious reasons—some of these roads would be a complete nightmare to navigate on your test! The closest test centre to Westminster is Hither Green, situated in South East London. In the opposite direction from Westminster is Wood Green test centre.

Theory Test Centres in Westminster

Unfortunately, you won’t find any theory test centres in the borough of Westminster either. Southwark theory test centre is the closest to this borough, and is most easily reached by taking the Jubilee line to London Bridge.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

Not to worry if you haven’t taken your theory test yet—we can arrange it at a time to suit you. Simply add it onto your course when you make your booking, and we’ll sort everything out.

Driving Around Westminster

Driving around Westminster, you’ll be confronted with some tricky challenges. The sheer volume of pedestrians visiting London’s biggest tourist attractions will be one of the most significant of these, and the borough’s one-way systems can complicate matters for even the most experienced of drivers. However, don’t worry too much, as during your lessons your instructor will take you to the roads around your chosen test centre. This is so that you can gain as much experience there as possible.
