Interested in automatic driving lessons in Barnsley?

Automatic and manual cars each have their pros and cons. A manual is generally cheaper to buy and service here in the UK, and offers drivers more control. Manual pass rates are also generally higher than those for automatics—the perception that automatics grant you a guaranteed pass is just another driving test myth!

However, automatics do offer drivers respite from clutch control and gear changes, which can often prove a stumbling block for many. If you'd prefer to take lessons in an automatic, we can help—all of our courses are available in automatic cars!

Booking is simple: just call us on 0333 123 4949, or book online. Once you book, you’ll be assigned a dedicated booking agent, as well as one of our fleet of high-grade, DVSA-approved instructors, who’ll help you become a safe, confident driver.

Practical Test Centres in Barnsley

With PassMeFast, it’s easy to take your entire course in your local area—including your practical test. That’s because we cover every practical test centre in South Yorkshire, including the Barnsley test centre. Depending on your exact location and availability, you may wish to travel to a nearby alternate test centre, such as Rotherham or Sheffield Middlewood Road. No matter where your test takes place, we can pick you up and drop you off at home or work.

Theory Test Centres in Barnsley

While the practical test gets the most attention, it’s just as vital that you pass your theory test—without it, you can’t gain your full licence. Learners in Barnsley will need to travel a little to get to their nearest theory test centre, as there isn’t currently one within the town itself. The nearest available theory test centres to Barnsley are in Sheffield and Leeds.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

You can book a PassMeFast course without having already passed your theory test—just be sure to add it on when booking in.

Driving Around Barnsley

When learning to drive, you’re likely to spend the majority of your time driving in the area around the test centre where you’ll be taking your test. As there’s a practical test centre in Barnsley itself, this means that you’re likely to be learning on roads that you’ll later be driving on every day—standing you in good stead for real-life driving.

When learning in Barnsley, you’ll have to deal with a wide range of driving scenarios. Much of your driving will take place in residential areas, where you’ll need to be aware of potential hazards at all times. You’ll also need to deal with busier urban roads, including the A628 and A635, which lead into the town centre, and may even have more rural roads to contend with too.

What’s more, you can get it all done in days or weeks—not months!

It doesn’t take long to become a fully licenced driver with PassMeFast. Book in online or contact the team to get the ball rolling today.
