Intensive Driving Courses in Frome

There was once a time when the only way to get your licence was to take your lessons over a period stretching many months. That was the past—now, enter PassMeFast. We’ve changed the game when it comes to driving tuition, with tailored crash courses to meet your schedule. Better yet, we offer our courses right here in Frome, as well as surrounding areas of Somerset. Get all the information you need on our driving school by reading on.

Booking an Intensive Driving Course in Frome

Heard of intensive driving courses before, but worried they’re too inflexible? Don’t worry: taking an intensive course doesn’t have to mean taking all of your lessons in a 5 day period. With us, you have the freedom to take your lessons at a pace of your choice. Go fully intensive, learning in blocks of up to 5 hours at a time, or spread things out over a few weeks with a semi-intensive option.

We also know that not every learner who comes to us will be completely new to driving. That’s why we offer a range of different courses and prices to meet virtually any candidate’s needs. So, whether you’re a total beginner starting from scratch, or already have the skills and simply need to adjust to driving a new car, we’ve got something for you. You can even try out our course recommender to see which option suits you best.

Interested in automatic intensive driving lessons in Frome?

Learners here in the Frome area don’t need to settle for just one type of transmission. That’s because all of PassMeFast’s courses are available to take in either an automatic or a manual car. So, if you’re looking to take an automatic driving course, we can help! Select auto when booking, and we’ll get a local instructor on the case.

Our courses may be tailored to your needs, but that doesn’t mean that their quality will vary. Every learner will be matched up with a DVSA-approved instructor who’s achieved A or B grades on standards check tests—so you know that you’ll be in safe hands on the road. As well as your instructor, you’ll also have a member of our office team assigned to answer any questions you have during your course, sort out all the admin, and fast-track your driving test.

As you can see, the way we do driving is a bit different from the way it’s been done in the past. It’s little wonder, then, that our intensive courses are more popular than ever before. Thinking of joining our many happy passers? Great stuff! Call us on 0333 123 4949 to talk to a member of our team, or book your driving course online in just moments.

Practical Driving Test Centres in Frome

Despite lying in Somerset, most of the closest practical test centres to Frome lie just over the border in Wiltshire. In fact, the best option for local learners is likely to be Westbury, with backups including Trowbridge, Bristol Brislington and Chippenham. The good news is that all of these are within a relatively short drive from Frome itself!

Theory Test Centres in Frome

The shoe is on the other foot when it comes to the theory test, as many of the towns we listed above don’t have a theory test centre, while Frome does. In fact, it’s by far the most logical choice for those living in this part of Somerset; to reach the nearest alternatives, you’ll have to travel as far away as Bristol, Blandford Forum or Yeovil. Want more info about the test? Visit the PassMeFast Blog for useful articles such as taking the theory test with dyslexia.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

A common mistake learners make is to assume that the theory test comes with a virtual guaranteed pass. This is far from the case, and leads far too many to fail to prepare adequately for the test. In turn, this has a knock-on effect, derailing the rest of a learner’s journey. Don’t be that person: be sure to revise! Meanwhile, let us take care of booking the test for you by adding it onto your PassMeFast course.

Driving in and around Frome

While many hopeful newbies are tempted by the prospect of learning to drive without an instructor, the reality is that learning with a DVSA-approved professional is indispensable. They’re the ones who know the most up to date format of the test, after all, as well as knowing virtually every road in the local area like the back of their hand.

Driving Schools in Frome

Instead of learning to drive with an independent driving instructor, some people choose to learn with a driving school. Driving schools tend to offer a slower, more traditional approach to learning to drive than intensive course specialists like PassMeFast.

The major downside of the traditional 1- or 2-hour weekly lesson is that you don’t get to book a test until your instructor thinks you are ready — and with most test centres in Somerset being fully booked months in advance, you could end up waiting a long time (and wasting money on lessons to stop your skills from getting rusty while you wait).

PassMeFast works around you and your schedule, and your lessons will be at a pace that works for you in a modern, goal-focused way. PassMeFast is the faster and easier route to driving — we’ll do all the admin, our courses include a fast-tracked practical test date, and your driving instructor will pick you up from home or work.
