Booking intensive driving lessons in Watford

For years, traditional driving lessons were the only way to get on the road. With this method, learners would often take months (or years!) to pass. Then along came 5-day courses, which compressed the usual timeframe into just one week. There was just one problem—who has the time to put their life on hold just to learn to drive? To make matters worse, the driving test often came weeks after the lessons, meaning learners had forgotten their newfound skills.

PassMeFast is the next step in the evolution of driving. We take the comprehensive nature of traditional lessons, then speed it up. Unlike some driving schools, however, our intensive driving courses fit around your life—not the other way around. We also add in a fast-tracked driving test, which takes place well ahead of the usual waiting times. Best of all, we’ll structure your course around this date, ensuring that you’re in peak condition just as you head in for the test.

With automatic licences becoming more popular by the year, more and more learners are looking to ditch the gears and get behind the wheel of an auto. And we can help! We offer automatic courses right here in Watford, helping you to pass in your transmission of choice.

Practical Driving Test Centres in Watford

You’re almost at the end of your course, having covered everything from changing gear through to the manoeuvres that could appear on your test. There’s only one challenge left: the practical! If you live here in southern Hertfordshire, you can choose between the Watford and Borehamwood test centres, with Hemel Hempstead serving as a useful alternative.

Theory Test Centres in Watford

Though receiving a lot less publicity than the practical test, the theory test is an equally important hurdle to cross when learning to drive. So, where will local learners need to head to take it? Not far, as it happens: Watford theory test centre is close at hand. If you’re in need of an alternative, travel south-west towards Uxbridge.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

Leaving your theory test too late can have a knock-on effect on the rest of your driving. After all, you can’t bank on a guaranteed pass! To take the first step towards making sure you pass on time, book your theory test as part of your PassMeFast course.

Driving Around Watford

With two driving test centres to choose from in this part of southern Hertfordshire, your lessons will focus on the routes where your practical is due to take place. If you’re in Watford itself, you can expect to tackle roads such as the A4008 and A41, tricky junctions such as the Dome, and focus on areas in the north, west and centre of town.

If you live further east, then Borehamwood will be the venue for your practical test. Here, one of the key roads to look out for will be the A1 (also known locally as the Barnet Bypass). It’s likely you’ll find yourself heading towards nearby Edgware, where the Apex Corner roundabout will require special care.
