Booking Driving Lessons in Oxford

If you’ve ever come across an intensive course before, you may have heard mixed reviews. Sure, they can be fast—but don’t you have to take all of your driving lessons in a 5 day window? Not with PassMeFast! Our courses offer you far more flexibility, giving you the option to take your lessons at a fully intensive or semi-intensive pace. This means that even those on a busy schedule can pass fast!

We take the stress out of finding a good instructor, as we only work with those who have the DVSA’s seal of approval and who’ve achieved good grades on standards check tests. This means that you’re in safe hands when you’re out on the roads, and can be sure that you’ll gain all the skills you need to become a confident driver in a matter of weeks.

Interested in automatic driving lessons in Oxford?

Not every driving school offers its learners a choice of transmission—but at PassMeFast, we pride ourselves on giving our students the ability to learn in either a manual or an automatic car. Simply choose automatic transmission when you book in, and we’ll assign a suitable local instructor to take you for your lessons.

It’s not all about what happens on the road, though—some of the magic happens behind the scenes, too. You see, PassMeFast’s secret weapon is its office team. They’re the ones who’ll sort out all the admin for your course, including securing your fast-tracked practical test. This allows you to stay focused on the driving for a smooth ride to passing.

Practical Test Centres in Oxford

At the end of your course, it’ll be time to put the skills you’ve learned to the test in the practical. If you’ve reached this point, it’s likely that you’ll be heading to the local Oxford Cowley test centre. Other alternatives in the vicinity include Aylesbury and Banbury.

Theory Test Centres in Oxford

Read up on your Highway Code, taken mock tests and studied our hazard perception test guide? Then it’s time for the theory test! Oxfordshire only has one theory test centre, but fortunately for local learners, that happens to be right here in Oxford. If you need a backup choice, consider the theory test centres in Reading or Aylesbury.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

Thought that a theory test comes with a guaranteed pass? Think again! While many believe that it’s mere common sense, in reality, the theory test requires plenty of revision. With the theory test proving a stumbling block for so many learners, it makes good sense to take it as early as possible. PassMeFast can help make things easier—add a theory test to your booking, and we’ll arrange a suitable appointment for you.

Driving Around Oxford

Though you may think that you know Oxford like the back of your hand, your driving lessons are sure to throw up some surprises. That’s because, if you’re taking your test at the local test centre, you’ll need to become familiar specifically with the Cowley area of town. In fact, the test centre is found down an unassuming cul-de-sac! So, what else is there to know about the local test routes?

Map showing Oxford within Oxfordshire

While it’s not possible to give exact details on routes, the proximity of the Eastern Bypass Road (A4142) to the test centre means you’re almost certain to take to this busy A road during your practical. Other aspects of your drive will be challenging in different ways—for example, you could find yourself heading out towards some of the rural areas to the south and east of Oxford. Master the varied roads of this area, and you’ll be well on the way to driving test success!
