What Happens Next?

Earning a licence may take a little time, but passing the theory test is a huge step forward. Once you have that theory test pass certificate, you can use the number provided on it to book your practical test. This is when the ball really gets rolling!

Friends and family members may try to convince you that they have all the skills needed to teach you how to drive, but you really can’t beat the knowledge and experience of professional driving instructors. In order to pass the driving test you need to meet some very specific requirements devised by the DVSA. It makes sense, then, that a DVSA-approved instructor is in the best possible position to provide this for you.

Don’t fancy spending hours scouring the internet or rifling through the yellow pages to find a good instructor? You don’t have to! When you book a course with PassMeFast, we take care of everything except the actual driving. That means you don’t have to worry about booking tests, organising lessons or finding a decent local instructor. Our team will do it for you. What a weight off!
