Interested in automatic intensive driving lessons in Bradford?


In a big city such as Bradford, there are some real advantages to driving an automatic car—not least of which is the ability to avoid constant gear changes in stop-start traffic. If this sounds ideal to you, you might want to match the car you learn in to the car you'll be driving later and take automatic driving lessons.

Thankfully, PassMeFast makes things easy by offering courses in both manual and automatic cars. Please note, however, that prices may vary.

Our courses are designed to help you pass quickly, with up to 5 hours of lessons per day. This means you could complete our 25-hour course in just a 5 day period! You can book in for one of our intensive courses via our website or over the phone.

Theory Test Centres in Bradford

Don't get too ahead of yourself—you'll need to pass your theory test before you're able to book a practical. Despite the oft-repeated theory test myths, there's no guaranteed pass here, so you'll need to put some effort in! Once you've completed plenty of revision and followed our last-minute tips, it'll be time to head to the Bradford theory test centre, which is in walking distance of both Bradford Interchange and Forster Square train stations.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

There's no requirement to have already passed your theory test to book a PassMeFast course. You will, however, need to have a valid theory test pass in order to take your practical test. For this reason, we recommend adding a theory test onto your course when making your booking. We'll arrange your theory for you, ensuring your appointment takes place in good time.

Driving Schools in Bradford

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  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.
