Intensive Driving Courses in Coventry

As one of the UK’s most important centres of motor manufacturing, Coventry is a city that knows a thing or two about getting behind the wheel. If you’ve not quite made the leap to getting your full UK licence yet, though, then never fear: PassMeFast is here to help. Read on to learn why we’re different from driving schools—and how our crash courses can help you learn to drive more speedily than you might think.

Booking an intensive driving course in Coventry

If you’ve never taken any driving lessons before, it can sometimes be difficult to know where to start. How do you choose the right instructor, for example? Should I choose a manual or an automatic car? And do I really have to choose between just one lesson per week and taking one week off work just to learn?!

Luckily, the answer to that last question is a resounding no—thanks to PassMeFast. We offer intensive driving courses, meaning that you’ll be up and running much faster than with traditional lessons. However, we don’t make all of our learners take a single, 5-day course. Instead, you choose how to structure your course: get things done lickety-split with a fully intensive option, or keep things chill with semi-intensive.

Interested in automatic intensive driving lessons in Coventry?

Automatic vs manual is one of the tougher choices a new driver will have to make, with plenty of pros and cons on either side. Choose auto, and you’ll dodge the clutch control and gear changes that other drivers can find nightmarish. (It’s not quite as easy as it sounds, though, and certainly won’t mean a guaranteed pass!) Choose manual, and you’ll have greater control over your drive—and often save money on servicing.

Luckily, whichever side you ultimately come down on, PassMeFast can help you make your driving dreams a reality. We have both manual and automatic courses in Coventry—simply specify when booking, and we’ll make it happen!

With PassMeFast, you have nine different course options—from five hours right through to forty-eight. All your lessons will be one-on-one, meaning that you’ll have the full, undivided attention of one of our local, DVSA-approved driving instructors. Plus, thanks to our fast-track practical test service, you won’t have to wait around for months after finishing your hours.

Fast isn’t just in our name—it’s in our nature. So, why not get in touch? Give us a call on 0333 123 4949, or click below to book your course online.

Practical driving test centres in Coventry

Most local learners will be heading to the nearby Coventry test centre, which is located in the city’s northern suburb of Exhall. Alternative options include Nuneaton and Warwick. No matter which test centre you choose, you won’t need to worry about getting to and from your test appointments—home and workplace pickups come as standard! Remember that, as your instructor will take you to the test centre, you’ll also be able to take them on your test!

Theory test centres in Coventry

Hold your horses before you start preparing for your practical test—there’s still the matter of the theory test to get through. After all, you’ll need a valid theory test pass in order to book a practical test—so getting this out of the way early is vital. Luckily, if you haven’t yet passed this hurdle, you won’t have to travel far to do so: Coventry theory test centre is conveniently located in the heart of the city.

Driving in and around Coventry

Learners in the Coventry area will soon become accustomed to the stop-start nature of urban traffic, with tricky spots to watch out for including the roundabout on the A444 just adjacent to the Ricoh Arena, as well as busier conditions near to Coventry University. You’ll also need to display your proficiency at recognising developing hazards and adapting your speed in slower, residential areas—and don’t discount the possibility of heading out to quieter areas outside the city, which will display the differences between rural and urban driving.

If that all sounds like a lot to take in, don’t worry. Learning to drive may be a challenge, but it’s one that thousands of our alumni have already taken on successfully—and, with a PassMeFast instructor by your side, you’ll soon be taking to the local roads like a duck to water.

Crash course in Coventry

Want to take a crash course in Coventry? PassMeFast is the way to go — we're crash course/intensive driving course specialists. What's the difference between a crash course and an intensive driving course? Nothing! They're just different ways of referring to taking driving lessons over a shorter period of time, instead of spreading them over several months.

Driving Instructors in Coventry

Most learners find driving instructors in Coventry by searching online or through a recommendation. Many instructors use social media or websites to advertise themselves and some are listed on the DVSA website. It can be difficult to find an available instructor — they’re still in very high demand after lockdowns, with some waiting lists up to 4 months long! 

Need a driving instructor in Coventry? PassMeFast do the hard work of matching you with an instructor that suits your availability. We have 300 driving instructors in and around West Midlands who’ll work around your schedule and help you get on the road in a flash. 

Wondering how fast you can pass? Our flexible but intensive driving courses mean you learn efficiently and boost your chances of passing ASAP. Instead of making you wait for ages for a test after your lessons, we fast-track your test before assigning an expert driving instructor to teach you. This goal-focused structure ensures your driving skills are fresh in your mind for your test so you’re more likely to pass. 

Over 50,000 people have taken the faster route to driving with PassMeFast — and you can be next!

Driving Schools in Coventry

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 West Midlands 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.
