Practical Driving Test Centres in Eastleigh

No matter whether you completed your driving lessons in a 5 day period or spread them out, all learners’ journeys finish with a practical test. If you live in this area, you’re likely to take your test in Southampton, at either the Forest Hills or Maybush test centre, with another option being Winchester. Before you head to your test, remember that, as well as your practical skills, you’ll need to show an understanding of the rules surrounding the test, including those covering eyesight while driving.

Theory Test Centres in Eastleigh

Prepping for your theory test? As it’s fairly easy for many candidates to take their theory test at once at a single location, the DVSA has fewer centres for the theory test than the practical. Fortunately, given Eastleigh’s location, you still have several options at your disposal: Southampton is the closest, while Fareham and Portsmouth serve as useful alternatives.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

Didn’t realise the theory test was so important? Not only does the DVSA recommend taking your theory test certificate to your practical test, but they actually prevent you from booking a practical without having first passed your theory! So, get your appointment arranged early by adding a theory test to your PassMeFast course.

Driving in and around Eastleigh

While you can never be sure of a guaranteed pass, one of the best ways to increase your chances of driving test success is to practise on local routes. That way, you’ll have a good idea of what you’ll be facing on the big day. However, Eastleigh doesn’t have its own test centre. For this reason, you’re likely to spend your early lessons locally, before travelling to the area where your test is due to take place when you’re more confident on the road.

Most learners here will, therefore, spend some of their lessons driving in the Southampton area, with Forest Hills being the most common test centre. You can expect to come across everything from residential areas, where you’ll need to deal with car-lined streets and speed-restricted zones near schools, through to busy A roads in the north of the city.

Driving Instructors in Eastleigh

Most learners find driving instructors in Eastleigh by searching online or through a recommendation. Many instructors use social media or websites to advertise themselves and some are listed on the DVSA website. It can be difficult to find an available instructor — they’re still in very high demand after lockdowns, with some waiting lists up to 4 months long!

Driving Schools in Eastleigh

Instead of learning to drive with an independent driving instructor, some people choose to learn with a driving school. Driving schools tend to offer a slower, more traditional approach to learning to drive than intensive course specialists like PassMeFast.  

The major downside of the traditional 1- or 2-hour weekly lesson is that you don’t get to book a test until your instructor thinks you are ready — and with most test centres in Hampshire being fully booked months in advance, you could end up waiting a long time (and wasting money on lessons to stop your skills from getting rusty while you wait). 

PassMeFast works around you and your schedule, and your lessons will be at a pace that works for you in a modern, goal-focused way. PassMeFast is the faster and easier route to driving — we’ll do all the admin, our courses include a fast-tracked practical test date, and your driving instructor will pick you up from home or work.
