Read on for full details about our courses, and how we can help you get on the road fast in Blackpool!

Booking intensive driving lessons in Blackpool

PassMeFast is a driving school with a difference. We saw too many people taking months or even years to pass, and decided that offering the traditional, slow pace of lessons wasn’t for us. However, we also saw that many companies forced people into a single type of course—an inflexible crash course, and often taken over a 5-day period, meaning people had to take time off work. We realised we had to offer something different.

That’s why we devised a range of intensive driving courses, each tailored to different levels of prior experience. Our courses work a bit differently to most: after you book, we’ll start by securing you a practical test appointment, which will take place weeks or even months ahead of the usual waiting times. Your course will be structured around this predetermined date, allowing you to choose a schedule that fits around your life.

Interested in automatic driving lessons in Blackpool?

Gears driving you mad? Can’t stand the clutch pedal? Want a smoother way to drive? You might want to consider taking lessons in an automatic car instead. PassMeFast offers lessons in both manual and automatic cars in Blackpool, meaning that the choice is yours. To get a full comparison of the two types of transmission, check out our guide to automatic vs manual.

You’ll learn with one of our fleet of experienced and DVSA-approved instructors, and will gain a comprehensive range of driving skills over the course of your lessons. In short, it’s fast, flexible one-on-one tuition, tailored to your needs. If that sounds good to you, call us on 0333 123 4949 or click below to book.

Practical driving test centres in Blackpool

There’s plenty to prepare for when taking your practical test, from brushing up on show me, tell me questions through to driving at night. With the stress of the test, it’s nice knowing that you at least won’t have to travel too far to take it, as Blackpool driving test centre is close at hand. Other nearby options are Southport and Preston.

Theory test centres in Blackpool

Your theory test is just as important as your practical test, and will check your knowledge on everything from how well you know your traffic signs to how to respond to a cyclist swerving into the road. With a theory test centre to be found in Blackpool itself, you can take your test locally, saving you the hassle of travelling to and from your test. If you’d rather look further afield, however, you could also check out the test centres in Southport and Preston.

Driving around Blackpool

To give learners the best chance of passing, the lessons you take with us will focus on the area surrounding your test centre. This ensures that, by the time your test date comes around, you’ll be familiar with local road features, including nearby mini-roundabouts and A roads.

With comprehensive tuition from our instructors, you won’t need to worry about spending thousands on a pricey “guaranteed pass” course elsewhere. Instead, you can learn alongside PassMeFast’s great team of instructors, and pass first time.

Can I learn to drive without a trainer?

You can do lessons with anyone over the age of 21 who has had a full licence for 3 years, so theoretically, it is possible to learn to drive without a driving instructor.

However, it's recommended that you do both private practice and lessons with an instructor. This is because driving instructors know what the examiner is looking for during your test. This will help you to avoid any bad habits picked up by the person supervising you.
