Booking Intensive Driving Lessons in Burnley

There are plenty of driving schools out there who take the wrong approach to driving: some teach at a snail’s pace, while others force everyone to take all a crash course over a 5-day period; some hide tricks behind tempting offers, while others make students pay through the nose for a “guaranteed pass”.

Interested in automatic intensive driving lessons in Burnley?

PassMeFast isn’t just flexible when it comes to the schedule of your course—we also offer learners a choice of manual or automatic cars. So, if you’re finding it tricky to deal with gear changes in a manual car, and would like to ditch the hassle of a clutch pedal, you can take an automatic driving course in Burnley with PassMeFast.

At PassMeFast, we’re glad to say that we do things differently. Here’s how we do things:

  1. You start things by booking one of our eight courses, choosing the one that best suits your needs. When a student books, we’ll ask for their availability, and structure their course around the times and dates they’re free.
  2. We’ll beat the long driving test waiting times by booking you a fast-track practical test. We use this test as a date to work towards, and your lessons will be structured to take this into account. Plus, if you already have a test booked, we can change your practical test for you!
  3. You take your lessons with one of our fleet of instructors—all of whom are approved by the DVSA, and who have achieved good driving instructor grades on check tests.
  4. It’s time for you to take your practical test. Don’t worry, you can take your instructor on your test if you want!
  5. Pass—and drive off with your full UK driving licence!

The starting point, of course, is booking—so kick things off by calling us on 0333 123 4949, or by clicking the button below to use our online booking form.

Practical Driving Test Centres in Burnley

Before you switch from L to P plates and get your hands on that pink licence, you’ll have to get through the practical test itself. For learners in the Burnley area, the nearest test centre is the Nelson driving test centre, with alternate options to be found in Blackburn with Darwen and Rochdale. Your instructor will typically be able to take you to and from the test centre.

Theory Test Centres in Burnley

Your theory test is an important part of the driving learning process. During your revision for the theory test, you’ll pick up important knowledge, including the meaning of road markings and signs, and the best way to respond to an emergency situation on the road. This is considered so fundamental that you’ll need to pass your theory test before you can even book a practical. If you still need to take a theory test, you can head to nearby centres in Oldham or Bolton.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

PassMeFast can organise your theory test for you—all you need to do is add it to your course when booking. For extra practice, why not take our theory test quiz?

Driving Around Burnley

If, like most learners in the Burnley area, you choose to head to the Nelson test centre, you’ll spend some of your lessons driving in the area surrounding this test centre. Learners here will need to quickly get a handle on the differences between urban and rural driving, as both are likely to form part of both everyday driving and your test route in this area.
