Intensive Driving Courses in Market Harborough

No two driving schools are alike. Some keep their lessons slow—easy to fit around a schedule, but leaving you waiting around for months. Others, meanwhile, think it’s fine to cram everything into a 5 day window, forcing you to abandon any prior commitments. At PassMeFast, however, we do things differently. Our crash courses offer you the chance to get your licence quickly while still fitting lessons around your schedule. To see what we have to offer here in Market Harborough, read on.

Practical Driving Test Centres in Market Harborough

At PassMeFast, we ensure that our learners take lessons in the area where their test is due to take place. This helps to assuage any test day nerves and ensure they’re familiar with all the unique road features they’ll come across on the drive. As Market Harborough doesn’t have its own test centre, you can expect to spend at least some of your course hours practising in the area around your chosen centre⁠. This will likely be one of the two Leicester test centres (Cannock Street or Wigston), or Kettering.

Theory Test Centres in Market Harborough

There are plenty of questions you may be asking about the theory test. “How many hours of revision will I need to pass? What happens if I click too much during the hazard perception? And more importantly, where do I take it?” Thankfully, the answer to that last question is straightforward. Leicester theory test centre, just a short hop on the train, is the easiest to reach. If you’re in need of an alternative, you can also head south towards Northampton.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

Without passing your theory test, you can’t book a practical test⁠⁠—so, without this vital pass in the bank, it could be much harder to get your licence quickly. To avoid any of these issues arising, be sure to add a theory test onto your PassMeFast course. Once you’ve done so, we’ll arrange it for you, and can even fast-track it!

Driving Schools in Market Harborough

Instead of learning to drive with an independent driving instructor, some people choose to learn with a driving school. Driving schools tend to offer a slower, more traditional approach to learning to drive than intensive course specialists like PassMeFast.  

The major downside of the traditional 1- or 2-hour weekly lesson is that you don’t get to book a test until your instructor thinks you are ready — and with most test centres in Leicestershire being fully booked months in advance, you could end up waiting a long time (and wasting money on lessons to stop your skills from getting rusty while you wait). 

PassMeFast works around you and your schedule, and your lessons will be at a pace that works for you in a modern, goal-focused way. PassMeFast is the faster and easier route to driving — we’ll do all the admin, our courses include a fast-tracked practical test date, and your driving instructor will pick you up from home or work.
