Learning to Drive

Learning to drive is what PassMeFast is all about. We’ve already helped hundreds of students trade in their provisional for a shiny new full UK driving licence—and the list of PassMeFast alumni is growing every single day. That’s why we’ve created a section of our blog specifically dedicated to provide useful guidance for those who are currently learning to drive. In this section, we’ll include information on which courses to take, the best way to prepare for your theory and practical tests, and plenty more handy hints and tips to help speed up your journey to driving. Get the advice you need to ditch your ‘L’ plates faster!

How To Design Your Own Driving Course

Here at PassMeFast, we know that no two learners are the same. That’s why we ensure that all of our driving courses reflect the fact that everyone is looking for something slightly different, depending on their personal circumstances. You certainly won’t find a one-size-fits-all approach here! Think of our crash course packages as the learner driver version of a pick’n’mix. We offer all of the various components, you select the parts you want, and we combine them into a course designed...

How To Get A Good Insurance Deal As A Learner

Before you start learning to drive, you first need to make sure that you’re actually covered to practise on the roads. So, if you’re looking to practise with family or friends outside of your driving lessons, you’re going to need learner driver insurance. With learners being at the highest risk on the roads, insurers charge more for cover than they would with other drivers. Fortunately, there are ways you can still get a good insurance deal as a learner driver....

As one of the leading driving schools in the UK, it’s safe to say that PassMeFast wouldn’t be anywhere without its fleet of dedicated, hardworking driving instructors. With our rapid expansion into new counties each month—like our recent launch in Essex—we depend on our ADIs to help learners ditch the L plates and get their hands on that full driving licence. As a way of acknowledging our instructors, we started our Meet an ADI series. In this month’s edition, we’re looking...

Who Can Sit With A Learner Driver?

Driver and passenger

It isn’t just instructors who can help you learn to drive. Learners can also benefit from practice outside of lessons with a family member or friend. In fact, the DVLA suggests that most learners take about 22 hours of driving accompanied by someone other than their driving instructor. During this time it’s possible to consolidate what you’ve been taught by a professional, and gain vital experience on the road. However, before you let just anyone accompany you out and about,...

It’s that time of the month again—would you believe it? Yes, we’ve hit the end of February. It feels like we’re just flying through the months. We’ve certainly not got much to complain about. We’ve said goodbye to the cold weather (for now!) and have more than welcomed the recent sunny spells. Some people, however, have been celebrating more than just the good weather this month. We’re talking, of course, about the newly qualified learner drivers who have aced their...

When Will I Be Ready to Take My Driving Test?

Every learner’s journey towards obtaining a driving licence is unique. One thing they all have in common, though, is that learning to drive happens gradually. While you might experience a ‘Eureka!’ moment where a certain skill seems to click, the overall process is much less defined. That can leave learners with one major question: when will I be ready to take my driving test? There are a thousand possible answers to this question—so, it’s difficult to give a definitive, universally...

Meet an Instructor: Yvonne

Since its inception in Greater Manchester, PassMeFast has gradually expanded across the UK—offering intensive and semi-intensive courses to more and more counties with each passing year. This month, for example, we launched courses in Kent for the first time. We wouldn’t be able to do this, of course, without our ever-growing fleet of experienced driving instructors. As an integral part of the PassMeFast team, we’re keen to put the spotlight on our hardworking ADIs—which is why we launched our “Meet...
