Interested in getting on the road in the Swale area? You’re sure to have plenty of driving schools to choose between—but PassMeFast offers something different to the rest. With our fast, flexible courses, your full UK driving licence could be just weeks away, even if you’re a complete beginner. To learn more about getting on the road with us in Sittingbourne, Faversham, the Isle of Sheppey and beyond, read on.

Booking a Course

PassMeFast specialises in intensive driving courses for all learners. This doesn’t mean that we’ll make you take one week’s holiday to do the same 5-day course as every other learner—other driving schools may be okay with that, but it’s not our style. Instead, we have no fewer than nine courses on offer, ranging from five hours up to forty-eight.

When you book in, we’ll typically start things off by arranging a fast-track practical test for you, giving you a date to work towards and ensuring that all of the driving knowledge you gain over the course of your lessons is fresh in your mind by the time your test date comes around.

Interested in automatic driving lessons in Swale?

All PassMeFast courses are available in both manual and automatic cars. This means that the choice is yours! Please note that course prices may vary by transmission.

With your test date secured, we’ll then go about assigning you one of our DVSA-approved driving instructors. Together, you’ll plan a course structure that works for you and around your schedule. Then, it’s time to hit the road for your lessons—and, before you know it, you’ll be ready to head in for your driving test, with your pink licence just around the corner.

We’ve already helped thousands of learners from across the UK to get on the road. To become the latest happy member of the PassMeFast alumni, give us a ring on 0333 123 4949, or click the button below to book online.

Practical Test Centres in Swale

While there may be eight practical test centres in Kent, the bad news is that none of these are to be found in the Swale area. This means that you’ll be heading to another part of Kent to take your test, with the closest test centres including Gillingham, Herne Bay and Canterbury. Wondering about your chances of passing? Check out our guide to the best and worst test centre pass rates of 2017/18!

Theory Test Centres in Swale

The pattern we saw regarding practical test centres unfortunately holds true here, too, as there are no theory test centres in Swale itself. However, this is an obstacle you’ll still need to overcome if you want to get your hands on that pink licence, so you’ll need to make plans to head to a nearby theory test centre instead. Thankfully, you won’t need to go too far. If you’re in the Faversham area, your best bet will be to go to the Canterbury theory test centre, while those in Sittingbourne may be better served by the Chatham test centre.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

If you’ve heard any common theory test myths, you might think it’s possible to do your theory and practical test on the same day. In reality, however, you need to do your theory test ahead of your practical—the DVSA regulations say so, and there’s no getting around it. To ensure things run smoothly, add a theory test onto your course when booking in with PassMeFast. We’ll arrange everything for you, and can even secure you an earlier test date!

Driving Around Swale

When heading in for your practical test, the last thing you want is to have your confidence derailed by test day nerves. The best way to fend off this possibility is to ensure you have a solid knowledge of not only how to drive, but also of the roads in the area where you’ll be taking the test. This won’t necessarily mean a guaranteed pass, but it does mean you won’t be caught out by any unfamiliar road features, and will be feeling that little bit calmer and more prepared.

What does all of this mean, then, for you as a learner? Well, since there are no test centres in Swale itself, it means that you’ll need to spend some of your driving lessons getting used to the roads in the areas where you are taking your test.
