Interested in automatic driving lessons in Rochdale?

At PassMeFast, we give our learners choice over whether to learn in a manual or an automatic car. It’s true that an automatic car isn’t a guaranteed pass—but, if you’re struggling with manual transmission, you may find that the lack of gears and a clutch pedal are the difference you need to pass. There are pros and cons to both manual and automatic cars—but at PassMeFast, you’re free to choose whichever suits you best.

That’s why we offer learners a selection of nine different intensive driving courses in Rochdale of 5 to 48 hours in length, with all lessons taught one-on-one by one of our DVSA-approved driving instructors. We provide flexible but structured driving tuition—as well as being fast. (It’s in our name, after all!)

We’ll start by searching for driving test cancellations, helping you to secure a date weeks or even months ahead of the normal waiting times. Your course will then be structured around this date, helping you to pass quickly without compromising on quality.

Practical Driving Test Centres in Rochdale

For learners within the town of Rochdale itself, the Rochdale driving test centre is a very convenient option. Depending on your exact location, however, you may also wish to consider other nearby centres, such as Bury and Chadderton. With home and workplace pickups available, you won’t need to worry about getting to and from your lessons and tests—it’s all sorted for you!

Theory Test Centres in Rochdale

Let’s start with the bad news: with no theory test centre in Rochdale itself, you’ll need to travel a little bit to take this test if you haven’t already passed it. The good news, however, is that you won’t need to go far. The nearest theory test centre is located in nearby Oldham, whilst other options for Rochdale’s learners include Manchester and Stockport.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

You must pass your theory before booking your practical test—so be sure to add it to your course if you’ve not got a theory pass certificate yet.
