Intensive Driving Courses in Middlesbrough

PassMeFast now covers the whole of North Yorkshire. So, if you live in the Middlesbrough area—including Redcar, Thornaby, Guisborough, and Yarm—you could book an intensive or semi-intensive course with us and pass your driving test in weeks!

Booking an Intensive Driving Course in Middlesborough

Back in 2015, we here at PassMeFast decided it was time to change the world of driving lessons. We realised it was time to do away with inefficient, slow, one-hour-per-week lessons and offer something new: structured, intensive (and semi-intensive) courses that helped all learners to get on the road in just weeks.

Our wide range of courses reflect the diversity of our learners, some of whom come to us almost test-ready, and some of whom are only at the beginning of their driving journey. No matter what stage you’re at, booking with us means that you’ll be taught by one of our instructors, and gain the skills you need not just to pass, but to drive safely for life.

Not sure which course to take?

We all need some guidance every now and again—so why not take a course assessment to get a recommendation for the most suitable course for you? Call us on 0333 123 4949 or book online.

Interested in automatic driving lessons in Middlesbrough?

Whether you prefer automatic or manual, PassMeFast has you covered. That's because all of our courses here in Middlesbrough are available in both gearboxes. Simply select an automatic course when making your booking—please be aware that prices vary by transmission.

Unlike others, our driving school won't try to lure you in with promises of a "guaranteed pass", and we won't make you take a 5 day holiday just to take your lessons. Instead, our lessons fit around your existing commitments, including work and family life. With our intensive courses, though, you'll still be able to pass fast—with a fast-track practical test included in each course as standard.

PassMeFast is the quick and simple way to learn to drive. To book in, just call us on 0333 123 4949 or book online.

Driving Around Middlesbrough

Most learners in the Middlesbrough area will be learning at the local Middlesbrough test centre, located just to the east of the town centre. Learners here will experience a mix of urban and residential road conditions, as is typical for most practical tests. The nearby A66 dual carriageway is likely to be one tricky area for learners, with the Cargo Fleet Lane roundabout also proving a potential stumbling block.

There’s no need to worry, though. Though you’ll be taking an intensive course, you’ll still get fully comprehensive driving tuition from your instructor. This means that you’ll gain all the skills you need to be able to confidently approach any type of road or junction, and pass your test first-time.
