Real Life Stories

With so much talk about pass rates, it’s all too easy to forget that, behind the statistics, there are thousands of individual learners, each with their own journey.

Here, you’ll find plenty of inspirational success stories, including some learners who’ve managed to get their licence against the odds. But we also know that the path to great driving sometimes doesn’t run smooth, and you’ll find a fair few bumps in the road here too! Read on to laugh, cry, get informed and feel inspired.

We know they may not be your favourite people, but spare a thought for driving examiners. They work to strict deadlines, have to go round and round the same few test routes day in, day out, and the people they’re accompanying often aren’t thrilled to be there.

PassMeFast's top 5 pass photos April

Waving goodbye to April is always a little tough. The Easter bunny has packed up his basket of treats, the pride you felt about how many eggs you could consume in one sitting is now tinged with a sting of shame as you’re left traipsing an alarming number of boxes to the recycling, and your annoying pranks can no longer be passed off as charming April Fool’s antics. On the upside, spring is in full swing (give or take a...

It’s officially time to say goodbye to the month of April, and boy, has it flown by—what with the much-needed bank holidays and the scorching weather.
