Intensive Driving Course in Leeds

Too often, people assume that all intensive driving lessons follow the same pattern: a one-size-fits-all course taken over a 5-day period, with no flexibility or concern for a learner’s individual needs. Luckily, with PassMeFast, the reality is different. We offer courses which are fast but flexible—and, most importantly, comprehensive.

When you book a course with PassMeFast, you’ll get:

  • A fast-track practical test as standard, meaning that you can beat the long waiting times for driving tests
  • One-on-one lessons from a DVSA-registered driving instructor who’s achieved high grades on ADI check tests

With us, you’ll also have a choice of eight different driving courses, depending on your experience. It’s up to you how to structure your course. Have plenty of spare time and want to get everything done in as little as one week? You could take a fully intensive driving course. Got a busy schedule and want to space things out? Try a semi-intensive schedule.

Interested in automatic intensive driving lessons in Leeds?

As the largest city in West Yorkshire, Leeds’ roads see plenty of traffic every day. Unfortunately, this means that a learner here will quickly find out what it’s like to experience stop-start traffic—which can be especially irritating in a manual car. With this in mind, it’s no wonder that more learners than ever are looking to take automatic courses in Leeds.

There are certainly some good reasons to choose an auto; not having to worry about clutch control or gear changes are certainly at the top of the list. However, many learners making the mistake of thinking that an automatic car is a guaranteed pass. In truth, you’ll have to try just as hard in an automatic as you would in a manual. If you still believe an automatic is the right choice for you, though, then go for it—PassMeFast offers automatic courses in Leeds, so we’re happy to help!

At PassMeFast, we’re here to provide excellent service to all learners, regardless of their needs or prior experience. What matters to us is that you become a safe, confident driver for life. To start your journey, call 0333 123 4949, or simply click the button below.

Practical driving test centres in Leeds

If you’ve checked out our guide to the West Yorkshire driving test centres over at the PassMeFast blog, you’ll have noticed that there are not one, but two driving test centres to choose from in the city of Leeds: Leeds test centre, which can be found in the Harehills area of the city, to the east of the city centre, and Horsforth test centre, which is a little to the north-west of the city. This means you’re bound to find one that’s convenient for you—and don’t forget, all lessons and tests come with home and workplace pickups as standard!

Theory test centres in Leeds

Getting a good theoretical knowledge of driving can help you become a safer driver in the long run. It’s for this reason that all learners have to pass their theory test before they can get their licence—in fact, you won’t even be able to book a practical test without having passed your theory. Learners in Leeds can get this pass in the bag simply by heading to the Leeds test centre located on The Headrow in the city centre, with alternative options to be found in Bradford and Harrogate.

Driving around Leeds

Learners in Leeds will have different experiences of driving depending on the test centre they’re heading to for their test. If you’re closer to Horsforth and are on the outskirts of the city, you’ll notice a real contrast in conditions between driving on the Ring Road (A6120) and heading out to some of the rural areas nearby. Meanwhile, those taking their test at Harehills will experience plenty of residential areas with different types of pedestrian crossing and junctions mixed in with inner city areas—though don’t count out the possibility of the countryside making an appearance here, too!

No matter where your driving lessons take place, one thing will remain the same: over your course hours, you’ll gradually become confident at operating the car, performing complex manoeuvres, and becoming adept at dealing with a range of hazards. All of this means that, by the time your practical test rolls around, you’ll have a fantastic chance of passing with flying colours—first time.

Crash course in Leeds

Seen the words 'crash course' while shopping around for driving lessons? Maybe you're wondering the difference between a crash course and an intensive course? Truth is, there isn't one! They're both ways of referring to driving lessons over a shorter time period. So if you don't want to spread your lessons out over several months (the old-fashioned way) an intensive/crash course is your answer.

How to overcome driving trauma or anxiety

Anxiety around driving or learning to drive after going through a trauma can be really difficult. The most important thing is to take your time and don't put too much pressure on yourself. Get as much practice as possible to help you overcome your fear, and be honest with your driving instructor about how you're feeling.

It might also help to talk to a professional, or even just a friend or family member. With time, driving will feel less scary and your confidence will grow alongside your skills.
