Booking Intensive Driving Lessons in Solihull

Nowadays, all of us have plenty on our plates. This can make it difficult to find the time to drive. Unfortunately, most driving schools don’t seem to have caught up to this fact, with many insisting that you take one week off work just to complete a course. Others, meanwhile, are totally fine to make you trundle along at a snail’s pace, completing just one lesson per week (most of which is going over what you did in the previous week).

PassMeFast is different. We believe in putting the learner in control, and giving you real choice over your crash course. To start with, you’ll be able to choose from one of our nine different driving courses. A beginner, for example, may opt for the longest choice: the 48-hour course. Meanwhile, a learner who simply needed a quick refresher could select just 5 hours.

Interested in automatic intensive driving lessons in Solihull?

Not everyone is a fan of manual driving. Gear changes can be tricky to get the hang of, and constantly having to clutch control in the middle of a traffic jam can be downright annoying. If you’d rather avoid all of this, then an automatic car may be the right choice for you. Luckily, we offer all nine of our driving courses in both transmissions—so, for both manual and automatic lessons in Solihull, choose PassMeFast!

You’ll also be able to decide on the structure of your course. If your schedule is rammed, you might need to space your lessons out a little—making a semi-intensive pace ideal. Just want to get passed as quickly as possible? Fully intensive is the way to go!

No matter what you go for, your lessons will be scheduled to finish just before your practical test, ensuring that the driving knowledge you’ve accrued is fresh in your mind. Plus, did we mention that we can fast-track your test, helping you beat the long driving test waiting times and get on the road weeks (or even months) earlier?

There are so many reasons to choose PassMeFast—so, why wait? Get on the road to driving by calling us on 0333 123 4949, or book your course by clicking the button below.

Practical Driving Test Centres in Solihull

Though officially listed as a Birmingham test centre, the Shirley driving test centre is actually found within the borough of Solihull, and is the best option for learners in the local area. If you’d rather look elsewhere, however, other nearby test centres are located in South Yardley and Garretts Green. Be sure to read up on how to avoid test day nerves to ensure your day goes as smoothly as possible!

Theory Test Centres in Solihull

While learners won’t have to travel too far to take their practical test, your theory test will require a trip into the city. That’s because the Birmingham theory test centre is the closest option for Solihull learners, with Sutton Coldfield next on the list. The inconvenience is worth it, though—without passing your theory, you won’t be able to book your practical test, so be sure to get this in the bank as soon as possible!

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

PassMeFast can organise your theory test for you at a time and date to suit you. Simply add a theory test onto your course booking, and we’ll get it sorted!

Driving Around Solihull

Though Solihull’s local Shirley test centre may have one of the better pass rates in the West Midlands, getting to grips with local test routes is no mean feat. The string of roundabouts on Stratford Road (of which there are a whopping eight), for example, will require you to be on your toes at all times. Meanwhile, the hazard perception skills you honed during your theory test will be put to the test for real, as you look out for pedestrians, cyclists, and other vehicles, as well as a range of static hazards.
