Coronavirus: Car Cleaning Tips to Keep You Safe

The coronavirus pandemic has forced us all to change our habits and view life through a different lens. In particular, people are taking cleanliness and hygiene very seriously. Though it’s a little scary to think about, we have to face the fact that the virus is able to live on various surfaces for a certain amount of time. Why is PassMeFast interested in this? Well, because your car (even though you shouldn’t be using it as often) is a potential...

So, who’s in the hot seat this time? It’s a very...

Coronavirus: How Long Does It Take to Get an Emergency Test?

To do book with a timer next to it

It’s now fairly common knowledge that, in response to the coronavirus pandemic, the DVSA has cancelled most driving tests. Theory and practical test centres across the country have closed their doors to the vast majority of learner drivers. We say ‘vast majority’, and not all, because a small number of learner drivers are earning their licences under lockdown. The coronavirus pandemic has deepened our appreciation for the incredible people who work to keep our citizens healthy and our society running....

Guess who’s back, back again? It’s us! Turns out it’s going to take more than a global pandemic and government-sanctioned lockdown to stop PassMeFast from churning out some brand new, top class pass photos. And that’s all down to our wonderful key workers. You see, in case you hadn’t already heard, the DVSA is providing emergency tests for those deemed essential to the COVID-19 response. As a result, this week we’re celebrating a very impressive PassMeFast student who will soon...

Coronavirus: Where You Can and Can’t Drive

The coronavirus pandemic has turned everyone’s lives upside-down. Our favourite venues are closed, we can’t see our loved ones and we’re all getting way more acquainted with our Netflix accounts than we ever thought possible! While this is a trying time, we all know that adhering to lockdown rules is the best way to protect people and help the NHS. The thing is, though, that not all of the rules are crystal clear. Indeed, you’d be forgiven for thinking that...

And we’re back! Yes, PassMeFast is delighted to say that even though driving tests are few and far between because of the ‘rona, we are managing to secure emergency tests for essential workers. That’s right—this ain’t no Throwback Thursday type of deal. We have a brand spanking new pass photo to share! So, gather round and listen up as we celebrate the driving achievements of a key worker that impressed us for a whole host of reasons. This week’s top...

Tyne and Wear Theory Test Centres: Your Essential Guide

Tyne and Wear Theory Test Centres: Essential Guide

Thanks for joining us for another theory test centre essential guide. This month we’re exploring the offerings from the county of Tyne and Wear, an area in which PassMeFast courses have been available since March 2020. You may have noticed that we also launched in County Durham at this time, and yet that county is not covered in this guide. What gives?! Well, unfortunately, there are currently no theory test centres in County Durham at all. Luckily, though, residents need...

Coronavirus: My Theory Test Got Cancelled. What Now?!

Blue 'sorry we're closed' sign hanging on door

Unless you’ve been living under a rock (in isolation, we hope!), you’ll know that the world has been turned upside-down by COVID-19 and we’re all having to come to terms with a new way of life. Social distancing is the new norm. Sadly, isolation and learning to drive don’t really mix. As a result, the current pandemic means that many learners have to put their aspirations of earning a licence on hold. If you had a theory test booked in...
