What Happens Next?

Passed the theory test and ready to move on to the next stage of your driving journey? Well done! That’s a big achievement and we love learners who are enthusiastic about hitting the road. The good news is that that’s exactly what you’ll be doing next!

The practical test requires you to be able to show a range of driving skills in front of a DVSA examiner. They’ll want to see that you’re a skilled, safe and confident driver. In order to prepare for this test we highly recommend that you take driving lessons with a qualified ADI. It’s also a good idea to book your practical test appointment quite early, so that you have something to work towards. 

If this sounds like quite a big undertaking, that’s because it is. Learning to drive involves quite a lot of organisation and time. Thankfully, though, PassMeFast can make this process a whole lot easier. We’ll find you an instructor who can offer intensive lessons, provide you with encouragement along the way and even book a fast-tracked test on your behalf, helping you to swerve long DVSA wait times.
