Booking an Intensive Driving Course in West Bromwich

Haven’t heard of us before? Allow us to introduce ourselves.

PassMeFast is an intensive driving school that offers courses across the country. We’ve helped thousands of learners to pass their test—and we say no to the slow pace of traditional lessons.

However, unlike other intensive schools, we don’t believe that all learners should have to take the same 5 day course. Instead, we offer a wide range of driving courses, each of which is tailored to learners with different experience levels.

And we won’t force you to take one week of your annual leave just to learn to drive. Instead, we’ll offer you the freedom to choose a fully intensive course, or fit lessons around your schedule with a semi-intensive pace.

Interested in automatic intensive driving lessons in West Bromwich?

Before you get on the road, you have an important choice to make: manual or automatic? This is a big decision: manual typically offers cheaper vehicles and servicing, along with a greater degree of driver control; automatic cars, meanwhile, allow you to avoid gear changes and clutch control. Thankfully, no matter which side of the debate you come down on, we’ve got you covered: we offer both manual and automatic courses in West Bromwich.

We’ll fast-track your practical test so that it takes place weeks or even months before the usual waiting times, and structure your course so that your lessons end right before your test date. This means everything will be fresh in your mind right before the big day, giving you the best chance of passing.

Our courses may be quick, but they’re never rushed. You’ll get comprehensive, one-on-one tuition from a PassMeFast instructor in your local area—meaning that, by the time it comes to taking your practical test, you’ll be standing in good stead to pass first time.

So, say no to schools that force you to take things too fast, too slow, or try to lure you in with false promises of a guaranteed pass. Choose a driving school which offers you flexibility and freedom. Choose PassMeFast. Call us on 0333 123 4949, or book your course by clicking the button below.

Practical Driving Test Centres in West Bromwich

Though there are no practical test centres to be found within the town of West Bromwich itself, the local borough of Sandwell is home to the Wednesbury driving test centre. However, the best option for you may depend on which part of the borough you live in: if you’re in Smethwick, for example, then the closest test centre is Birmingham Kingstanding, while those in Rowley Regis may instead wish to travel to Dudley.

Driving in and around West Bromwich

Those learning to drive in the Sandwell area will likely need to become familiar with the test routes around the Wednesbury driving test centre. The A463 (Black Country Slip Road) is likely to prove one of the trickier sections of road, especially given the many roundabouts featuring along the route. It’s not just A roads you’ll need to be concerned with, though: quieter residential areas can often be even more difficult to traverse, with a range of hazards to look out for around every bend.

Driving Schools in West Bromwich

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.
