Intensive Driving Courses in Havant

If you live in Havant, or across the surrounding area, including Waterlooville, Horndean and Hayling Island, then PassMeFast covers you. This means you could book with us today and get your licence within just weeks! Read on to learn more about our driving school and our intensive and semi-intensive courses.

Booking an Intensive Driving Course in Havant

At PassMeFast, we looked at the ‘traditional’ way of learning to drive—taking your lessons on a weekly basis over a period of months—and decided that something needed to change. We also saw other schools offering learners the chance to pass in one week, only to realise that what they really meant was that they’d have to take all their lessons in a rigid 5 day window… and then wait weeks for a test! Clearly, there had to be a better system—so, we created our own.

With PassMeFast, you aren’t restricted to a single package. Instead, our courses and prices adapt to meet the needs and experience level of our learners. Once you’ve found your perfect match, you can then book in for a deposit of just £150. You’re then free to adapt your course to fit your lifestyle, taking lessons at a fully intensive or semi-intensive pace, depending on your schedule.

Interested in automatic intensive driving lessons in Havant?

Manual licences are the most popular option in the UK, as they allow you to drive both transmissions after passing. If you’ve got your heart set on an auto, though, we’re here to help! All of our courses are available to take in vehicles with an automatic gearbox—just select an auto course when you book in.

All of our driving lessons are taught by experienced, DVSA-approved instructors in your local area. They’ll show you all the skills you need to ace your test, from dealing with tricky junctions to executing a neat parallel park. Meanwhile, at PassMeFast HQ, you’ll have a member of our office staff on the case, sorting out the admin relating to your course, including securing you a fast-track test.

It’s little wonder that thousands of learners have already come to PassMeFast—and got their licence! So, make this the place that your journey begins. Discover your perfect course now by trying out our course recommender. Then, get on the phone to 0333 123 4949, or book your course online.

Practical Driving Test Centres in Havant

Havant doesn’t have its own driving test centre—so, if you live locally, you’ll be taking your practical in a nearby location, such as Portsmouth, Lee-on-the-Solent, or Southampton Forest Hills. Before you go, be sure to check out our article covering a few interesting facts about the driving test.

Theory Test Centres in Havant

Before you can even book a practical test, you’ll first need to get your theory sorted. To do so, you can head to local test centres in Portsmouth, Fareham or Southampton. Just remember: there’s no guaranteed pass here, so crack out the revision books (or apps) and get studying!

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

PassMeFast can take the stress out of organising your test. When booking your course, simply specify that you’d like to add a theory test. Our team will then arrange it for you, taking into account your preferred schedule and location.

Driving in and around Havant

When you’re getting ready to take your driving test, there are certain ways you’ll want to prep. Of course, your instructor will take you through the skills you’ll need to display, as well as helping you to avoid committing any driving test faults. One thing you may not realise is as important, however, is to have a solid knowledge of the local area. In fact, being familiar with the road features that may pop up on your test can give you a real advantage.

If you live in Havant, then, you’re likely to spend your first lessons locally as you get to grips with the basics of driving. Once you’ve gained a bit more confidence, however, your instructor is likely to take you to the area where your test is due to take place—which is likely to be Portsmouth. This will help to ensure that, when you come across a tricky junction or change in speed limit during your test, you’ll feel prepared, not perplexed.

Driving Instructors in Havant

Most learners find driving instructors in Havant 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 Havant

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
