Take an Intensive Driving Course in Birmingham

By now, most learners know that traditional driving lessons aren’t the only option on the market—intensive courses are here to stay. However, a common misconception is that there’s only one type of course out there: a single, 5-day crash course that assumes all learners start from the same point, have the same requirements, or progress at the same pace.

PassMeFast does things differently. We understand that learners are unique—so, our courses are, too.

Interested in automatic intensive driving lessons in Birmingham?

We get it—driving in a city like Birmingham can be stressful. Traffic jams in the city centre and tailbacks on the M6 are, often, a sad fact of life. Driving in these conditions can make things worse: all those gear changes! If you’d rather skip the hassle (and the clutch control), then an automatic car is a sound choice.

All of our courses include one-on-one tuition from a DVSA-approved driving instructor, with fast-track practical tests available, too.

Practical Driving Test Centres in Birmingham

When it comes to taking the practical test, Birmingham’s learners are spoiled for choice, with no fewer than six test centres in the city itself: Cocks Moors Woods, Garretts Green, Kings Heath, Kingstanding, South Yardley and Sutton Coldfield. There’s even a seventh Birmingham test centre—Shirley, which is just over the border in Solihull, and which is convenient for those in the Hall Green area. For useful advice, visit the practical test section of our blog.

Theory Test Centres in Birmingham

As well as the city’s many practical test centres, there are also two theory test centres to choose from here. The first is the Birmingham theory test centre, which you can find on Dale End in the city centre itself, a short walk from the Bullring and the city’s three major train stations. Alternatively, you could opt for the Sutton Coldfield test centre, which is close to the Four Oaks train station.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

It’s important to get your theory test pass in the bag as early as possible—you can’t book a practical test without one! Visit the theory test section of our blog for handy preparation tips.

Is the first driving lesson really scary?

If your friends are teasing you by telling you how scary your first driving lesson will be, ignore them! It's not as bad as you might think. 

In fact, your first driving lesson doesn't actually involve much driving. Instead, you'll be introduced to your instructor, go over some important pre-checks, and gain a good understanding of the controls in the car.

Driving instructors have lots of experience with nerves, and it's completely normal to feel that way. Before long, your nerves will start to disappear as you become more comfortable and confident with the things you're learning.
