Driving Instructors

The lifeblood of PassMeFast is its fleet of DVSA-approved driving instructors. These are the men and women who accompany all of our learners on their journey from total novice to confident driver. In this section, we’ll introduce the members of our team, who cover the length and breadth of the country and boast the experience to help even the most nervous of learners get their licence in a matter of weeks. We’ll also be asking for our instructors’ opinions on the hot topics of the day, keeping our finger on the pulse as the world of motoring changes around us.

How to Find a Good Driving Instructor

Fortunately, the use of dual control cars helps instructors keep learners—and other road users—safe on the roads. In...
