Learning to drive with PassMeFast is a little different to taking intensive driving courses with other driving schools.

(And if you’re not sure which category you fall into, just try out our course recommender tool!)

Once you’ve decided on your course, you get to choose how intensive you want it to be. With sessions lasting as long as 5 hours, our 25-hour course could be taken in just a 5-day window! Alternatively, you can opt for a semi-intensive pace, spreading your lessons out over a few weeks to fit around your existing schedule. It’s up to you!

Practical driving test centres in Northampton

If we were to tell you that there were three practical test centres in Northamptonshire, you could probably take a guess that one of those would be found in the town that gave the county its name. And you’d be absolutely spot on: there’s a practical test centre right here in  Northampton! As for the other alternatives, you can also check out local centres in Kettering or Wellingborough.

Theory test centres in Northampton

Things are just as easy for local learners when it comes to the theory test, as you can simply rock up to Northampton theory test centre on your big day to smash your hazard perception and multiple choice questions. Northamptonshire does have another alternative to the east in Corby.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

Without a theory test pass, you won’t be able to book a practical test. That’s why we advise our learners to add a theory test onto their booking and get it out of the way in good time. Not sure how much you’ll need to fork out for it? Take a look at our guide to driving and theory test prices.

Driving around Northampton

In a large town like Northampton, there are certainly plenty of different road types and junctions that you’ll need to get up to speed with during your lessons. Tests here begin in a local industrial estate, but your route will soon see you heading towards residential areas, where you’ll need to show your examiner that you have a keen sense of hazard perception, and will need to deal with often narrow, car-lined streets.

Map showing Northampton within Northamptonshire

Though tests here are unlikely to head out towards country lanes, you could see yourself along one of the many A roads that radiate out from the Northampton area. Equally, you could find yourself tackling busy traffic in the town centre. Navigate all of this successfully, and you’ll find yourself walking away with a full driving licence—and could even pass with zero minors!
