Booking a driving course is one of the most important investments you'll ever make. Being able to hit the road opens up new job opportunities, frees you from having to rely on public transport, and offers independence.
However, not all driving courses are created equal. A PassMeFast driving course is the ideal choice for a learner looking to get their licence quickly without compromising on quality, and offers you flexibility and convenience. Read on to learn what makes us different, and to find out what happens during a PassMeFast course.
Think that driving tuition is the same no matter which driving school you choose? Not quite.
The traditional method of learning to drive involves taking just one or two hours of lessons per week—a drawn-out process that sees many learners pay over the odds while waiting months (or even years) to pass.
Other driving schools, meanwhile, promise a more intensive experience. This usually means, though, that you'll need to take all of your lessons within a week. Can't take the time off work? Tough luck! And you often won't be able to take your test straight away—instead, you'll need to twiddle your thumbs as you wait for a test booking.
PassMeFast sought to create a driving course that gave learners choice. Our intensive and semi-intensive courses help you get on the road faster while fitting around your schedule. But how exactly does it work? Let's find out.
The first step in your driving journey with PassMeFast is booking in. Our nine different courses, all of which are featured on our prices page, cater for every type of learner. A total newcomer to driving would be best served by taking one of our longest courses, for example, while someone who's almost test-ready may only need a short refresher.
If you're unsure about which option is best for you, you can chat to the PassMeFast team online using our webchat, or give the team a call. Alternatively, you can opt for a course assessment. During your assessment lesson, an instructor will critically evaluate your current driving ability over a period of an hour, before recommending the course they believe best fits your needs.
Once you've chosen your course, booking in is simple: you can either call us on 0333 123 4949 or use our online form. You'll only need to pay £150 as a deposit to secure your booking, and, subject to approval from our finance partners, you may be able to pay the balance of your course in instalments.
To make sure we can dot the i's and cross the t's, we'll then ask you to send us a few of your preferences regarding your course. This includes:
Don't worry—this should take no more than a few minutes to complete. After this, we can start planning your course.
No matter what path you take when learning to drive, every learner shares an endpoint: the practical test. Here at PassMeFast, we believe it's important that the driving knowledge you gain is still fresh in your mind by the time it comes to taking your test. That's why, unlike some driving schools, we'll typically arrange your test appointment in advance.
When booking you a test, we'll take into account your availability, as well as any special requirements you may have. Best of all, our fast-tracking department will arrange your test to take place well ahead of the waiting times you'd typically find on the DVSA website.
Once this date is secured, we'll then move onto the next step in the process…
Across the country, hundreds of DVSA-approved driving instructors are part of the PassMeFast team, helping to teach budding learners the ways of the road. Thanks to their patience and guidance, thousands of learners have already got their very own coveted pink driving licence.
When taking a course with PassMeFast, we'll assign you an instructor who lives locally, and knows the area like the back of their hand—including the roads which are likely to feature on your practical test.
Once you've been paired up with a member of the fleet, you'll work together to plan a lesson schedule that fits around your existing commitments. We'll never ask you to pay an instructor in cash—PassMeFast will handle all payments.
Your test arrangements are in place and your instructor is ready to pick you up from home or work. It can only mean one thing: you're about to start your PassMeFast course!
Each individual course will, of course, be unique. If you're completely new to driving, for example, you'll start by learning a few basic rules and moving the car around quiet roads. A more experienced learner will be practising manoeuvres and heading out onto busier A roads.
As your practical test has already been arranged, you'll be able to spend lessons in the area around your chosen test centre. This gives you the confidence of knowing that, by the time your test comes around, you'll be familiar with the local roads—sparing you the nasty surprises that can trip up unprepared learners.
All that preparation has been leading up to this: the practical test. No matter which test centre you head to, the format will be the same:
What happens after your PassMeFast course depends on your performance in your practical test. Pass, and you'll be ready to take the wheel solo!
Even if you fail, though, it's not the end of the road. We'll be happy to welcome you back on board for a few more refresher lessons to help you polish up any weaker areas and put any issues right.
