Interested in automatic intensive driving lessons in Bolton?

With the rising popularity of automatic cars, you might be considering taking automatic driving lessons. There are certainly some upsides: automatic driving can feel smoother, especially in stop-start traffic, and you won’t have to worry about those pesky gears.

Nonetheless, if you’re hoping that automatic lessons will result in a guaranteed pass, you’ll be disappointed. In fact, there’s very little difference between manual and automatic pass rates. Ultimately, you should choose the right transmission for your needs—with PassMeFast, you’ll have a great chance of passing with either gearbox!

We pride ourselves on offering fast and flexible lessons, helping our learners to get their licence quickly without compromising on teaching quality. We understand that all of our learners are individuals—so we won’t force you to take a 5 day holiday from work to take an inflexible one week course. Instead, you control the pace of your lessons, choosing an intensive or semi-intensive structure. Intensive courses—your way.
