Booking Intensive Driving Lessons in Saint Helens
If you’re looking into learning to drive in St Helens, you may be wondering what it is that makes PassMeFast different to other driving companies. The answer lies in our nine distinctive courses, each of which is tailored to learners of different experience levels.
Not sure which course to take?
Interested in automatic intensive driving lessons in St Helens?
Many learners are now interested in taking their course in an automatic car. But what are the positives and negatives? Well, there are certainly some pros: with an auto, you won’t have to worry about gear changes, which can make urban driving go more smoothly. However, auto cars certainly aren’t the guaranteed pass that some learners think they are. Meanwhile, they also tend to be more expensive, and getting an automatic licence means you can’t drive manual cars after passing.
With both pros and cons to choosing an automatic, it’s important to think carefully about your options before deciding which transmission to go for. However, the good news is that, with PassMeFast, you do have a choice: it’s possible to take lessons in St Helens in either a manual or an automatic car.
Whereas other companies only offer a single type of course—usually taken over a 5 day period—we welcome anyone wanting to perfect their driving skills, from an experienced learner looking for a refresher course to a complete beginner (even if you’re learning to drive with anxiety!).
Our courses are taken over a period of days or weeks—not months. At the end of your lessons, you’ll take a fast-track practical test, which we’ll book for you to take place well ahead of the normal DVSA waiting times. And through it all, you’ll be guided by one of our fleet of DVSA-approved driving instructors.
Our driving school also gives you the freedom to customise your course: you can choose a fully intensive or semi-intensive pace, and include any special requirements. Simply speak to the team on 0333 123 4949, and we can get the job done.

Practical Driving Test Centres in St Helens
Learning close to home is always a real advantage, as it means that you’ll be taking your lessons in the same environment as you’ll later have to drive in in real life. That’s why it’s great that learners here can simply head to the nearby St Helens test centre. Alternatively, you may also choose to take your test in nearby Warrington or Widnes.
Theory Test Centres in St Helens
Theory test centres are usually thinner on the ground than practical test centres, in part because they often tend to be more centrally located and easier to reach. As such, it’s great news to see that there’s a theory test centre in St Helens itself. This means you won’t have to travel far to take your theory test if you haven’t passed already. Should you decide to go elsewhere, other centres can be found in Wigan and Liverpool.
Haven't taken your theory test yet?
Remember that you’ll need to pass your theory test before booking a practical! If you haven’t done this yet, simply add it to your course.
Driving Around St Helens
Most learners here will be starting their practical test at the St Helens driving test centre, which is located just a short distance from the town centre. As such, urban roads, some of which are likely to be very busy, will almost definitely feature on your test. However, don’t rule out country roads making an appearance on your test too. In fact, be prepared for everything, including various types of roads and junctions, as well as displaying awareness of hazards and knowledge of manoeuvres—as well as, of course, answering those “show me, tell me” questions.
Whilst the test is meant to be challenging, you shouldn’t be feeling too nervous. That’s because, during your lessons, your PassMeFast instructor will give you both the skills and the confidence you need to be able to pass your practical test first time. Fast, flexible service with no compromise on quality—what’s not to like?
Driving Instructors in St Helens
Most learners find driving instructors in St Helens by searching online or through a recommendation. Many instructors use social media or websites to advertise themselves and some are listed on the DVSA website. It can be difficult to find an available instructor — they’re still in very high demand after lockdowns, with some waiting lists up to 4 months long!

Driving Schools in St Helens
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 Merseyside 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.
