Booking Intensive Driving Lessons in Bridgwater

If you’re looking to speed up the process of learning to drive, then we’re the driving school for you. Instead of languorous weekly lessons, our students learn by taking structured courses.

Practical Driving Test Centres in Bridgwater

When it comes to the practical test, there’s good news and bad news for those living in Bridgwater. We’ll start with the negative: Bridgwater doesn’t have its own test centre. On the flip side, though, the fact that Bridgwater lies in the centre of Somerset gives it convenient access to all of the county’s test centres: Taunton, Weston-super-Mare and Yeovil are all within a short drive.

Theory Test Centres in Bridgwater

Though history of the UK driving licence stretches all the way back to the 1930s, the theory test has only been a vital component since 1996. Nonetheless, you’ll need to pass it if you want to get your licence. So, it’s important to know where you can take it. The closest option for Bridgwater’s learners is Taunton, with alternatives found in Axminster, Yeovil and Bristol.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

Far from the cakewalk many make it out to be, the theory test is harder to succeed in than you may think. There’s definitely no guaranteed pass here! What’s more, without a valid theory test pass, you can’t book a practical. That’s why passing the theory in good time is crucial. To ensure your course goes as smoothly as possible, add a theory test onto your PassMeFast booking, and we’ll arrange it at a suitable time, date and test centre for you.

Driving Around Bridgwater

You may not realise it, but an area like Bridgwater is a perfect place for a novice driver to cut their teeth. That’s because it offers a real mix of roads: with quiet, residential areas, busy dual carriageways, and the M5 running just to the east, you’ll be able to sample the UK’s road system in microcosm within a short drive of your home. This means you’ll be well-prepared for virtually any route you could take—including the one you’ll face during your practical.

Of course, when it comes to the practical itself, you’ll need to head out of the Bridgwater area. For this reason, your instructor may well decide to mix things up by taking you to the location where your practical test will take place. They’ll also ensure that you gain useful local knowledge that could come in handy during the big day, from box junction rules through to how to tackle major junctions.
