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!

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

ADI 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...

Am I Too Old To Pass My Driving Test?

When it comes to the driving test, there’s an overabundance of myths circulating around. Some believe driving examiners have pass quotas, while others believe the test is much harder (or easier!) than in the past. In the same vein, another common belief is that some learners are just too old to pass the driving test. With the legal age for learning to drive being 17, many are convinced that the longer you wait, the less likely you are to pass...

What Role Does Muscle Memory Play in Learning to Drive?

Driving can be a deceptively complex skill. Sure, the actions of steering, using pedals and changing gears aren’t too tricky on the surface. It’s worth remembering, though, that they aren’t natural instincts—we need to teach our bodies to perform them. Despite this, once we’ve had plenty of practice, they become second nature. Muscle memory plays a key role in this process. In this article, we’ll examine what exactly muscle memory is, how it works, and why it’s so crucial in the development...
