As soon as you earn your driving licence and start hitting the road solo, the sense of freedom can be very empowering. There’s no need to worry about tests or the watchful eye of your instructor anymore, because you are going it alone. Woohoo! Don’t get too carried away, though. A licence doesn’t grant you free rein to do whatever you want on the road. It’s important to play by the rules and work with the skills you learnt in...

How to Keep Your Car Clean

You know the phrase, “It’s what’s on the inside that counts”? Well, it applies to cars as well as humans. Washing the outside of your car is all well and good, but the interior of the car is where you actually spend most of your time. So, it only makes sense that this is where you really need to be focusing your cleaning efforts! Plenty of people end up treating their car like a bit of a rubbish dump—you wouldn’t...

Driving With Pets in the Car: What You Need to Know

In many ways, pets are the perfect car companions. They can’t criticise your driving, they don’t get a say in the music playlist and they (hopefully) won’t eat the last of the car sweets. All in all, with your trusty feline or canine companion in tow, you should be in for a pretty fun drive! The thing is, though, travelling with pets in the car isn’t that straightforward. You need to make sure you follow the rules set out in...

Chuck your shorts in the wash, shove the sun cream to the back of the cupboard and scoff the last of the ice pops, because summer is coming to an end. Was it ever really here? That’s a debate for another day, but judging by some of the dodgy tan lines on show in the PassMeFast office, it must have paid at least a flying visit! Yes, as if we didn’t already know, the steady stream of uniform and stationery...

We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again: a good driving instructor is key to ensuring that you are able to pass that test and earn your very own licence. This is why PassMeFast only works with the best! Not only do instructors provide you with the skills you need, they also instil in you that confidence behind the wheel that should stay with you for the rest of your life. With this in mind, there is nothing worse...

When Can You Use The Hard Shoulder?

The hard shoulder is a common feature of most UK motorways and even a few A-roads. While plenty of people have heard of it and could probably point it out on a car journey, not everyone is completely clued-up on what its exact purpose is. In fact, you may be surprised to learn that according to Highways England, around 100 people are killed or injured on the hard shoulder every year. A lot of these incidents could likely be avoided...

The British weather doesn’t exactly adhere to conventional seasons, but you can usually count on the fact that we’ll be treated to at least a little bit of sunshine during the summer months. While we never know if the main blast of heat has come and gone, the eternal optimists at PassMeFast are hoping that the sun isn’t ready to throw his hat off just yet. Then again, as much as we love basking in the heat, it does kind of...

Nothing quite raises your cortisol levels like the morning commute to work. It’s noisy, crowded, and somehow (no matter what time you roll out of bed) you always feel pressed for time!

While we can’t take your journey for you, we can provide some top tips on...
