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.

What Are The Manoeuvres In The Driving Test?

Taking the driving test is one of the most nerve-wracking things a learner driver can do—after getting behind the wheel for the first time, of course! One of the areas that has learners sweating the most, however, is driving test manoeuvres. It’s understandable—one wrong move and you could end up with a serious fault! One of the best ways to avoid this kind of situation, however, is preparation. So, if you’re not entirely familiar with all of the driving test...

Do Intensive Courses Create Safe Drivers?

It’s no secret that, here at PassMeFast, we’re huge fans of the intensive approach to learning to drive. Why drag lessons out over the course of a year when you can learn to drive from scratch in a matter of weeks? That’s no fun for you or your bank account! Sadly, in some circles, intensive driving courses have developed a bit of a bad rep. Some people hear ‘intensive’ and assume it means that participants are forced to rush through the learning...

Getting out onto the roads and enjoying the freedom that driving brings is something that many learners yearn for. Before they can even hope to take the driving test, however, learner drivers must first ace the theory test. Though often classed as “common sense” by some, the theory test is renowned for catching quite a few learners off guard every year. A popular question that circulates the learner community then, is, just how many hours of revision are needed to...

When it comes to passing the driving test, there are countless factors that can play into the likelihood of success—from how many lessons you’ve taken to how much practise you’ve had outside of lessons to how prepared you are for your big day. Whilst we believe that good results are entirely down to the individual learner, we do understand that some learners like to look at what other factors might increase their chances of passing. A popular query that many...

Did We Stop Learning to Drive After the Financial Crisis?

In the late 2000s, the biggest shock since the Great Depression rocked the global economy. The impact of this was far-reaching, affecting everything from international trade down to the weekly shop. Things were no different when it came to driving tuition, with the number of learners shrinking as the financial crisis bit. With these events now over a decade in our rear-view mirror, it’s time for us to look back. We’ll be examining the extent to which people stopped learning...

Has the Theory Test Made Drivers Safer?

Since 1996, everyone hoping to get their hands on a UK driving licence has had to pass a theory test. This challenges learners’ knowledge of the rules of the road, as well as their ability to react to developing hazards. These skills are deemed so important that you’ll need to pass it before you can even book a practical test. This makes sense: a good knowledge of the theory behind driving should make us better drivers. But what about the reality? Has...

As a parent of a learner driver, you’ve probably got dozens of questions on your mind. You might be wondering if you’re supposed to teach them yourself—and if you’re actually allowed to—or simply figuring out where you can find a good...
