Here at PassMeFast, we just love a good pass photo. Regular readers of the blog will know that we’re constantly celebrating the achievements of our lovely learners by sharing their pass photos and stories whenever we get the opportunity. When lockdown restrictions were introduced and test centres across the country announced they would be temporarily closing, we figured we’d have to kiss goodbye to this favourite pastime of ours.

My PassMeFast Experience: Passing First Time!

My PassMeFast experience

One of the biggest milestones for most people is passing the driving test and gaining the freedom of the roads.

Though I was familiar with the ins and outs of the practical test, to say I wasn’t fully prepared for the bumpy road ahead would...

Since its introduction back in 1996, the theory test has been through plenty of changes. This year, meanwhile, saw the coronavirus pandemic bring about some fairly seismic shifts to pretty much all aspects of daily life. So, how much did it affect the theory test? Fortunately, having taken a theory test both before and after the pandemic, I’m able to shed some light on this with first-hand info. I’ll detail my experience taking the theory test under the current rules,...
