Not sure which course to take?

PassMeFast offers nine different courses, all of which can be taken at an intensive or semi-intensive pace. Our 25-hour course, for example, could be taken in just a 5 day period, or spread out over a few weeks if you have a busy schedule.

As you can tell, there's plenty of choice on offer—but if you're finding it hard to choose, we're here to help. Booking a course assessment can help clear up which course is perfect for you.

Interested in automatic driving lessons in Skipton?

Practical Test Centres in Skipton

The ultimate goal for most learners is passing their practical test, ditching the L plates, and getting on the road for good. Luckily for learners in Skipton, you’ll be able to do all this in your local area, as there’s a practical test centre in Skipton. Other nearby centres you may alternatively wish to use include Steeton and Bradford Heaton.

Theory Test Centres in Skipton

You’re also in luck if you need to take your theory test in the Skipton area—particularly as you’ll need to pass your theory test before you’re even able to book a practical test. That’s because there’s a theory test centre located within Skipton itself, just a short 10 minute walk away from Skipton train station. If you live a little further from Skipton, you could also take your test at Bradford, Northallerton or Harrogate. Why not head to our resources page for useful online and mobile revision tools?

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

You'll need to get your revision in before taking your theory test—as the theory test pass rates show, there's no guaranteed pass here! PassMeFast can, however, make things a little easier by booking your test for you. Simply add a theory test onto your course when booking in. One less thing to worry about!
