Booking an intensive driving course in Sheffield

PassMeFast does driving differently. We think that driving shouldn’t be a long, drawn-out process that takes months—but we also think that a one-size-fits-all, 5 day course isn’t right for everyone. We offer a range of different driving courses in Sheffield, with lessons to suit anyone from a complete beginner through to an experienced learner just looking for one last push.


Interested in automatic intensive driving lessons in Sheffield?

In a busy city such as Sheffield, an automatic car can help spare drivers some of the stress that comes with heavy traffic. That's because autos feature no clutch pedal—and there are no gear changes to worry about, either. PassMeFast offers courses in automatic cars—so, if you'd prefer to learn in an auto, we can sort it for you!

We offer both intensive and semi-intensive courses, meaning that you can pass fast even with a busy schedule. And, with our fast-track practical test service, you could beat the normal DVSA waiting times for practical tests and get your licence in a matter of weeks—no need to wait around for months!

Practical driving test centres in Sheffield

It’s always better take your driving lessons close to home, as you’ll gain a good understanding of how the roads work in your local area. This means you’ll be aware of what to look out for when driving day-to-day after you’ve passed. Luckily for learner drivers in Sheffield, there are two test centres to choose from in the city: Middlewood Road test centre, to the north of Sheffield, and Handsworth test centre, to the east. Take a look at our ultimate guide to the South Yorkshire driving test centres for more information.

Theory test centres in Sheffield

Passing your theory test is a necessary step to getting your full UK driving licence; in fact, you must get your theory test pass certificate before being allowed to take your practical. If you haven’t passed yet, however, don’t worry—you can simply add a theory test onto your course. For most learners in Sheffield, the best option is likely to be the Sheffield theory test centre, which is located in the city centre. Alternative nearby options are available in Chesterfield and Mansfield. Visit our resources page for theory test guides and tips.

Driving around Sheffield

Sheffield is a city of contrasts: busy urban areas in the city centre, quieter, rural roads on the outskirts of the city. As such, perhaps more than any other major city, Sheffield can be a complex place to learn to drive, with a wide range of potential road types to deal with.

Typically, most students will spend the majority of their course hours learning close to their practical test centre; in Sheffield, this is likely to be either the Middlewood Road centre or Handsworth centre. As both of these test centres are on the outskirts of Sheffield, learners will need to be equipped to deal with residential and rural roads. However, Sheffield is, after all, a city, and you’ll need to deal with busy A roads too: in Handsworth, the A57 (Mosborough Parkway) may feature on your test, whilst in Middlewood Road, you may end up driving along the A61 (Penistone Road) near to Hillsborough stadium.

Whichever test centre you’re learning at, your PassMeFast instructor will ensure you’re up to test standard ready for you to ace your practical. All of our instructors have years of experience, are approved by the DVSA, and have received A or B grades in their standards check, ensuring that you’re in safe hands when learning with PassMeFast.
