Intensive Driving Courses in Newark

With so many things to explore in the Newark area, including the world-famous Sherwood Forest, there are plenty of reasons to want to get out on the roads here. If you’ve been looking for a local driving school, however, you might have found that the only options involve a slow pace, with one lesson per week—or, alternatively, an inflexible intensive school that forces you to take all your lessons within a 5 day period.

Not keen on either option? Want to learn fast—but don’t want to sacrifice your schedule? PassMeFast are the answer! With our driving courses in Newark and the surrounding area, you could be on the road in as little as one week. Learn more about our crash courses here!

Booking Driving Lessons in Newark

Unlike other driving schools, we understand that learners want to get on the road quickly, but don’t want to rearrange their lives around their lessons. That’s why we don’t just offer a single type of course; instead, we have nine different courses, from 5 hours up to 48 hours, designed for learners of all abilities. A learner who’s about ‘halfway there’, for example, might take our 20 hour course.

Interested in automatic driving lessons in Newark?

Taking lessons in an automatic car is becoming more popular—but does it beat learning in a manual? Here are a few of the reasons to go auto:

  • There’s no clutch pedal—great if you’re struggling with clutch control
  • You won’t have to worry about constant gear changes
  • Your driving experience is likely to be smoother

However, there are still plenty of reasons why manual cars rule the UK’s roads…

  • Manual cars offer drivers more control
  • …plus, they’re usually cheaper to buy and to service…
  • …and they use less fuel than an automatic.

Some extra considerations to take into account include the fact that, if you pass in an automatic, you can only legally drive automatic cars—whilst manual licence holders are deemed fit to drive both transmission. And automatic cars don’t offer the guaranteed pass that many learners expect—in fact, auto pass rates are actually lower than pass rates in manual cars.

In the end, it’s up to you as an individual to decide which gearbox is better for your needs. The good news is that PassMeFast offers you the choice of both manual and automatic driving lessons in Newark—so, no matter which side of the debate you’re on, we’ve got you covered!

Don’t worry if you’re not entirely sure which course is right for you, though: our friendly sales team can assess your prior experience to help you make a decision—and you can even get the opinion of an instructor by taking a course assessment!

No matter the length, all PassMeFast courses share a few things in common. First, all your lessons will be taught one-on-one by a DVSA-approved instructor. You’ll also get a fast-track practical test as standard, meaning you can take your test weeks or even months ahead of the normal waiting times. Plus, a dedicated Booking Agent will deal with all the behind-the-scenes work—so all you need to do is drive!

At PassMeFast, we aim to make every learner’s journey smooth, simple and speedy. Getting your licence with us starts here. Simply call us on 0333 123 4949, or click below to book your course online.

Theory Test Centres in Newark

If you’ve yet to take your theory test, then you’ll want to head to one of the test centres near to Newark to get this pass under your belt sharpish. Unfortunately, there’s no theory test centre in the town of Newark itself, meaning that learners will need to travel to Grantham, Lincoln or Nottingham to get the job done.
