Intensive Driving Courses in Swindon

Whether you’re looking for an easier commute or simply want the freedom to explore, a driving licence can open plenty of doors for you. With that in mind, it’s no wonder that so many learners want to pass their test as quickly as possible. PassMeFast gives you the chance to do just that, all while ensuring that your lessons fit around your schedule. Read on to find out more about our intensive driving courses in Swindon!

Booking intensive driving courses in Swindon

How can you speed up the process of learning to drive? Some people make the mistake of opting for a 5-day course, only to realise too late that the actual driving test will take place weeks later. This can lead to learners forking out for extra lessons before their practical. It makes much more sense to arrange your test to take place as your lessons are coming to an end—and at PassMeFast, that’s exactly what we do.

When you book with us, one of the first things we’ll do is secure you a practical test that meets your requirements. We’ll make sure there’s plenty of time for you to complete your lessons, and will assign a DVSA-approved instructor to teach you. Together, you’ll create an intensive driving course structure that suits your requirements, and allows you to gain all the experience you need prior to your test.

Interested in automatic intensive driving lessons in Swindon?

Many people are convinced that it’s easier to learn to drive in an automatic car than a manual. In fact, a quick comparison of pass rates shows that auto pass rates are lower. So, if automatic lessons don’t get you a guaranteed pass, what are the benefits? Well, you can say goodbye to constant clutch control in busy traffic, and hello to driving without gear changes. If that sounds good to you, then we’ve got great news: all of PassMeFast’s courses are available to take in an automatic car! Just select this as your transmission when you book in.

Unlike other providers, PassMeFast’s intensive courses are flexible. This isn’t just because you get to choose how many hours to take, but also because you control the pace. You can either go fully intensive, and pass in the fastest possible time, or opt for a semi-intensive schedule that fits around the rest of your life. Plus, you’ll be able to customise your course, adding on a theory test and letting us take care of any special requirements.

Our courses have proved a winning combination for thousands of learners up and down the length of Britain, with thousands of passes to date (and counting!). Decided we’re the driving school for you?

Practical driving test centres in Swindon

Here in Wiltshire, there are plenty of practical test centres for learners to choose between. In fact, there’s a grand total of five here in the county! Naturally, there’s a practical test centre in Swindon, which will be the obvious choice for most local learners. Those looking for alternatives, meanwhile, can head to nearby Chippenham or Trowbridge. Yet another option to check out is the Newbury Hambridge Lane test centre in neighbouring Berkshire.

Theory test centres in Swindon

The practical side of driving tends to get the lion’s share of learners’ attention—but perhaps the theory test deserves a closer look. After all, you can’t get your licence without a theory test pass in the bank! If you’ve not yet completed this portion of the learning process, hotfoot it to the Swindon theory test centre. Other centres in the vicinity can be found in Cheltenham and Andover.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

Whether you find the theory test hard to pass or not, it’s always a good idea to take it in good time. Some learners make the mistake of thinking that you can take the theory and practical test on the same day, only to learn the hard way that this isn’t possible! Add a theory test onto your PassMeFast booking, and we’ll make sure to book it in good time for your course to progress according to your preferred schedule.

Driving around Swindon

Want to know the best way to relax before your test? You can skip the herbal tea and meditation: confidence is key. The best way to feel ready is to know exactly what you’ll be facing during your practical. That’s why your instructor will spend time during your driving lessons showing you around all the trickier spots in the area, ensuring that you won’t be thrown by any directions the examiner may give you on the day.

It’s not just the Magic Roundabout you need to watch out for here in Swindon, though! This town has a complex network of roads, with hilly housing estates, one-way systems, dual carriageways and narrow streets. All of these could feature on your practical—though you can rest assured that, even though the M4 is nearby, motorway driving won’t be tested.
