Intensive Driving Courses in Salisbury

Do you want to get your driving licence? Want a quicker path than traditional lessons? Don’t want to be stuck with a 5 day course away from home? We could be the driving school you’ve been looking for. Our Salisbury driving courses are taught by grade A and B instructors, and come with fast-track tests as standard. Better yet, our students typically get their licence ahead of the normal waiting times! Read on for everything you need to know about our Salisbury intensive driving courses.


Booking Intensive Driving Courses in Salisbury

We’ve ditched the slow pace of weekly lessons, and brought in a more efficient way to learn to drive. We offer intensive driving courses ranging from 5 to 48 hours, meaning that every learner can find something to suit them. Though our courses are quicker than average, they’re never rushed, and nervous learners are more than welcome!

Each of our crash courses is taught by a DVSA-approved instructor. All of our lessons are one-on-one, ensuring that you’ve got the full attention of your instructor throughout your course. They’ll be there to introduce all the skills you’ll need to display in order to impress your examiner and ace your practical test. Their friendliness, professionalism and patience will also help you to feel confident behind the wheel, and adopt safe driving habits that stick with you.

Interested in automatic intensive driving lessons in Salisbury?

Manual cars may be the most common way to get around here in the UK, but they’re not the only option. If you don’t fancy dealing with constant gear changes, or are having trouble getting to grips with clutch control, then an automatic course could be ideal for you. Select “auto” as your transmission when you book with PassMeFast, and we’ll match you to a Salisbury instructor with an automatic vehicle.

One of the ways PassMeFast stands out from the crowd is through its outstanding office team. Though they won’t be there face-to-face, they’ll be your guardian angel throughout your course, on hand to answer any questions you may have. They’ll also arrange your driving test for you, ensuring that it takes place weeks or even months sooner than average. This means your licence could be just weeks away!

Practical Driving Test Centres in Salisbury

If you’re in southern Wiltshire, then the Salisbury practical test centre will almost certainly be the most convenient location for you. In fact, to find an alternative, you’d need to travel as far as Southampton’s Maybush or Forest Hills test centres, or to Winchester or Westbury. We’d advise you to stay local, though: while pass rates vary by test centre, it makes good sense to take your driving lessons and tests on roads close to home.

Theory Test Centres in Salisbury

Theory test centres are a little thin on the ground in Wiltshire, with only two to be found in the county. There’s positive news for those in this area, though, as one of those two just so happens to be the Salisbury theory test centre. The other is located all the way over in Swindon, so it’s lucky that you can stay local! Should you need a backup option, consider heading to Andover or Southampton.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

With both hazard perception and multiple choice questions to prepare for, it takes hours of revision to pass the theory test. What’s more, you can’t be sure of a guaranteed pass here. That’s why booking your theory test too close to your preferred practical test date can be a mistake. A smarter choice is to add a theory test onto your PassMeFast booking. We’ll then arrange it for you at a local test centre, and give you plenty of time to pass ahead of your driving test.

Driving in and around Salisbury

The purpose of your lessons is to help prepare you not just for the practical test, but for virtually any scenario you could encounter during real-life driving. That’s why you’ll take to roads right here in the Salisbury area and learn how to take on anything. By doing so, you’ll demonstrate your readiness to the examiner, and lay the groundwork for good habits that last.

This will be complemented with lessons in Salisbury’s residential areas, and even nearby countryside, helping you to become a more well-rounded driver.

Driving Instructors in Salisbury

Most learners find driving instructors in Salisbury by searching online or through a recommendation. Many instructors use social media or websites to advertise themselves and some are listed on the DVSA website. It can be difficult to find an available instructor — they’re still in very high demand after lockdowns, with some waiting lists up to 4 months long!

Driving Schools in Salisbury

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 Wiltshire 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.
