Booking Intensive Driving Lessons in Oldham

If you’re looking for a faster, more effective course structure than taking your driving lessons once per week, then an intensive or semi-intensive driving course could be great for you. However, be discerning: don’t simply choose an inflexible 5 day course that requires you to take one week off work.

Not sure which course to take?

If you’re not sure which course to choose, you can take a course assessment. One of our instructors will assess your driving ability and recommend a suitable course.

Interested in automatic intensive driving lessons in Oldham?

With more and more drivers in the UK switching transmission, the manual vs automatic debate has never been more relevant. The pros of automatics? No clutch, no gears, and less stress in stop-start traffic. The cons? Cars are more expensive to buy and service, and an automatic licence can’t be used to drive a manual car (while manual license holders can drive automatics).

Ultimately, the choice is yours. As long as you don’t expect an automatic car to give you a guaranteed pass, and put in the same level of effort as you would in a manual, then you’ll have a great chance of passing, whatever your transmission.

Instead, go for PassMeFast: the fast and flexible driving school in Oldham. With us, you can take lessons at your pace. So, if you want a fully intensive course, we can do that. Want a bit more space? That’s fine, too! Our instructors can fit your lessons around your needs, helping you to pass quickly regardless of your schedule.
