Intensive Driving Courses in Leicester

There are many things Leicester is renowned for⁠—not least having more traffic lights than any other UK city. Though we can’t promise you’ll never hit a red light, we can help speed up your driving journey by weeks or even months. Interested in finding out how? Read on to learn more about the intensive driving courses we offer right here in Leicester.

Booking intensive driving courses in Leicester

PassMeFast is an intensive driving school⁠—but with a refreshingly different approach. Rather than promising a ‘guaranteed pass’, we focus on working with top-quality, DVSA-approved instructors whose expertise can really make a difference to your result. And instead of forcing you into taking a one-size-fits-all 5-day course, we offer you real choice, ensuring you find the package that fits you best.

Our nine different courses include beginner, intermediate and refresher options to suit learners with any level of experience. Better still, unlike traditional driving lessons, you won’t have to wait a week between each session. Instead, you’ll be able to choose a pace that works for you, from a fully intensive driving course that can help you to pass in even the tightest timescale to a semi-intensive structure that works around your existing commitments.

Making all of this possible is the fantastic PassMeFast team, from the instructors out on the road to our office staff sorting out all the admin⁠—with a particular shout out to our fast-tracking department, who can help you to beat the usual waiting times for driving tests by weeks or even months.

Practical driving test centres in Leicester

Whether you powered through your lessons in one week or took things at a steadier pace, all learners eventually reach the same endpoint: the practical test. Those here in Leicester have two options as to where to take it: the Cannock Street test centre to the north of the city, or Wigston to the south. You can find plenty of useful practical test advice and information on the PassMeFast Blog, including how likely you are to pass with zero minors!

Theory test centres in Leicester

While learners’ minds naturally focus on the driving itself, it’s worth remembering that, in the eyes of the DVSA, the theory test carries just as much weight. In fact, if you don’t pass this, you can’t even book a practical! So, if you haven’t yet passed this hurdle, head to the Leicester theory test centre to get the job done.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

At PassMeFast, we’re more than happy to take away the hassle of booking your own test. Just add a theory test onto your course, and we’ll arrange it for you. We’ll ensure that it takes place at a time that suits you.

Driving around Leicester

When taking to the roads with PassMeFast, you can be sure of comprehensive lessons covering all the driving skills necessary to ensure that you head into your test with confidence. The exact routes you follow, however, will vary depending on which of the city’s two test centres your practical will take place at, with each area offering its own set of tricky junctions and unique road conditions.

Heading to Wigston? Watch out for the roundabout close to Leicester Racecourse, as well as sharp turns you may be asked to make off Leicester Road on certain routes. Meanwhile, those taking their test at the Cannock Street test centre will face one of the more daunting junctions almost immediately in the form of the Porsche Roundabout, with the Red Hill Circle a little further along the A563 providing another tough test. Be sure to check out our guide to the different types of roundabout to prepare!

Crash course in Leicester

Spot quiz — what's the difference between a crash course and an intensive driving course? If you answered 'nothing', then you're bang on the money! An intensive course and a crash course are the same thing. And just means learning to drive over the space of a few weeks, instead of the slower (old-fashioned) way.
