Intensive Driving Courses in Blackburn
PassMeFast offers a range of driving courses in the town of Blackburn, as well as in the surrounding area, including the towns of Accrington, Darwen, Bacup, Haslingden, Oswaldtwistle and Rawtenstall. But our driving school is different to the others: we help you pass fast, while giving you control and flexibility. Interested? Read on for everything you need to know.
Booking A Course
Intensive courses have become more popular in recent years, meaning that people can now get on the road faster than was possible with traditional, hourly lessons. The problem is that many companies make you trade your flexibility for speed, only allowing customers to take a 5 day course which requires you to take time off work, uni or college.
At PassMeFast, we offer a range of courses, and allow you to choose a schedule that suits you. Your lessons will be taught by one of our fleet of DVSA-approved driving instructors, who will provide one-on-one, tailored and focused tuition. If you have the free time, you can learn at a fully intensive pace—but don’t worry if you don’t, as you can use a semi-intensive course structure instead.
At the end of your course, it’ll be time to take your practical test. Unlike other companies, however, you won’t need to wait around. That’s because PassMeFast starts by booking you a fast-track practical test, giving you a date to work towards throughout your course. What’s more, our tests take place weeks or even months ahead of the standard waiting times. So, if you want to get on the road fast, book your course with us today.
Automatic Driving Courses in Blackburn
Increasing numbers of learners are turning to automatic cars instead of the manual cars which have long dominated Britain’s roads. Some of the reasons why are well-founded: if you’re really struggling with gear changes, for example, you might get to grips with an auto much more quickly.
However, it’s important to dispel the misconceptions that automatic cars are easier, and that learning in one essentially means you have a guaranteed pass. In truth, pass rates in automatic cars are no better than those in manual cars, and learning in an auto still means putting in a lot of effort. If you still feel that auto is the way to go, however, then you’re in luck: with PassMeFast, you can take your course in either an automatic or a manual!
If you’re not entirely sure which course is ideal for you, then book a course assessment to get the opinion of an instructor.

Practical Test Centres in Blackburn
After your course hours are finished, and you’ve learned everything from the basics through to more advanced techniques such as defensive driving, it’s time to take your practical test. For learners in this area, the best option is likely to be the Blackburn with Darwen test centre; this test centre is located a little further south from Blackburn town centre, so as to make it accessible for learners from Darwen, too. Alternatives are Chorley and Preston.
Theory Test Centres in Blackburn
Many people aren’t aware that there’s a specific order to the tests you’ll need to take to become a licensed driver. Specifically, you’ll need to take your theory test before you can book a practical. There isn’t a theory test centre in Blackburn itself, meaning that learners will have to travel to another nearby town to pass first. For learners here, the best options are Bolton and Preston theory test centres.
As well as booking your practical test, PassMeFast can arrange your theory test appointment for you. If you’d like us to do so, be sure to add a theory test onto your course when booking.
Driving Around Blackburn
If, like most learners in the local area, you take your test at the Blackburn with Darwen practical test centre, you’ll spend the majority of your course hours in the area surrounding this centre. Major static hazards in the area include a number of roundabouts, as well as the A666 road which links both Blackburn and Darwen with Bolton and Pendlebury.
Aside from the static hazards, you’ll have to be adept at responding to a variety of developing hazards, including pedestrians, cyclists and other motorists. You’ll also need to be able to follow the directions given by the sat nav used on the driving test, and display one of three manoeuvres. After comprehensive lessons with PassMeFast, however, you should have no trouble getting your licence—first time.
