Intensive Driving Courses in Dudley

With the bustling city of Birmingham and the peaceful Shropshire countryside on your doorstep—together with plenty of attractions closer to home—learning to drive in Dudley is your ticket to explore the local area. But, with traditional lessons taking months (or even years!) to complete, it’s understandable that many learners are put off.

Thankfully, PassMeFast is here to help you get out of the slow lane and on your way to passing in months. Our crash courses in  Dudley, West Bromwich and across the nearby area can help even a total novice to get their licence in weeks. Read on to find out how!

Booking Intensive Driving Lessons in Dudley

If you’ve previously done a bit of research into driving schools, you might have found two common themes: the longstanding local instructors offering one hour per week, or companies that make all learners complete the same 5 day course. It’s not an ideal choice: an ultra-slow pace that could see you waiting the better part of a year to pass, or having to take one week off work with no room for manoeuvre?

PassMeFast offers an alternative. With our intensive courses, you’ll learn at a much faster pace than with weekly lessons. However, we also understand that flexibility is important to our students. It’s for this reason that we let you choose the pace of your course: go for max speed with a fully-intensive structure, or fit lessons around a busy schedule by keeping things semi-intensive.

Interested in automatic intensive driving lessons in Dudley?

If you’re finding gear changes a grind, or you can’t cope with clutch control, then you may wish to consider learning to drive in an automatic car. Driving an auto can offer a smoother experience in slow urban traffic—and, as a result, they’re more popular than ever before.

Be aware, though, that learning in an automatic isn’t an ‘easy’ choice (and certainly won’t mean a ‘guaranteed pass’). You’ll still need to put plenty of work in over the course of your driving lessons in order to attain that coveted pink licence.

If you’re ready for the challenge, though, PassMeFast can help. With both manual and automatic courses available in Dudley, we’ve got you sorted—no matter what transmission you choose. Learn the pros and cons of both gearboxes by checking out our automatic vs manual article.

While others restrict learners to choosing only one type of course, we offer courses five to forty-eight hours in length. All of our courses include one-on-one tuition from a local, DVSA-approved instructor, along with home and workplace pickups. Fast-track tests are also available, helping you to get on the road even more quickly. By the end of your course, you’ll have gained the skills you need to not only be at test standard, but to be a safe and confident driver.

If you’re ready to head out on the roads, then look no further. Get things started by calling 0333 123 4949, or book online within minutes by clicking the button below.

Driving Around Dudley

Dudley’s learners have luck on their side: the local Lower Gornal test centre has the highest pass rate of any test centre in the county, and the only one which beats the national average. A good start! However, you’ll still have to navigate plenty of tricky road conditions whilst on your test, with a balance of slower residential areas and faster-paced dual carriageways, as well as roundabouts such as Castle Gate Island.
