Booking intensive Driving Lessons in Abingdon

Not sure what makes PassMeFast the best choice for a crash course or driving lessons in Abingdon? Unlike others, we put you in control. The starting point to this is our range of courses, with options available for beginners, test-ready candidates and everyone in between. You can also choose to take lessons in manual or automatic transmission, with the option to add theory and practical tests onto your course.

Once you’ve booked, we’ll match you up with a DVSA-approved driving instructor covering your area. You’ll liaise with them to create a lesson plan tailored to your needs and fitting around your schedule. You can also decide exactly how intensive you want your course to be, in terms of both lesson length and scheduling. A 25 hour course, for example, could be taken in a highly intensive 5 day window, or spread out over a few weeks.

Finding it difficult to get to grips with clutch control? Can’t stand the thought of one more dreaded gear change?

Practical Driving Test Centres in Abingdon

Not sure where you’ll be heading at the end of your intensive lessons? When it comes to the practical test, the Oxford Cowley test centre is the easiest option for learners in the Abingdon area. If you’re in need of an alternative, look south towards the Newbury Hambridge Lane test centre.

Theory Test Centres in Abingdon

From stopping distances to road signs, your theory test will cover a lot of ground. But where will you need to take this test? Abingdon doesn’t have its own test centre, meaning that the nearby Oxford theory test centre is by far the closest choice for those living in the vicinity. Other options include Reading, Andover and Aylesbury.
