PassMeFast’s 40 Hour Driving Course

40 hour driving course

If you’re just starting out as a new learner driver, you might think you have a long journey ahead. It’s certainly true that you have a lot of new skills to learn—but that doesn’t mean you have to take things slow. In fact, with our 40 hour driving course, you could be on the road far quicker than you might think.

As our second-longest course, our 40 hour driving course is most suitable for a confident beginner. This course will provide the necessary time to help a novice start from the very basics of moving a car and progress to completing advanced manoeuvres confidently. (If you’re a beginner, though, then be sure to check out our 48 hour driving course, too!)

Unlike traditional driving lessons, however, PassMeFast’s courses are intensive and semi-intensive. This means that you won’t have to deal with the slow pace of lessons that learners have had to endure for decades. Instead, you get a fast, flexible service from one of our DVSA-approved instructors, with the PassMeFast team sorting out all the admin for you.

“Are you a beginner driver? Are you a confident learner who can quickly gain new skills? PassMeFast’s 40 hour course could be ideal for you.

If you’d like to get your licence fast, you can complete this course in under two weeks—or, if you’d like more flexibility, you can space it out over a longer period. No matter which you choose, you’ll gain all the skills you need to become completely test-ready.

This course is typically taken over two to eight weeks, and includes:

  • Thirty-nine hours of tuition with a local, experienced, DVSA-approved instructor, plus
  • A practical test, which we will book at a time, date and test centre to suit you.

We’ll even fast track your test, meaning it will take place weeks or even months ahead of normal waiting times. This means that you could get your licence just weeks after booking!

This is a fast and flexible option for beginners, with weekends and evenings available. You can even personalise your course: add a theory test, take lessons in an automatic car, or include special requirements. Simply book online or over the phone, and we’ll do the hard work for you!”

How to book

At PassMeFast, we like to keep things simple. That’s why we make things easy for you every step of the way, starting with the booking process.

If you’d rather cut to the chase, then you can book your course online in a matter of minutes. Alternatively, you can speak to a member of our friendly sales team by calling us on 0333 123 4949. When booking, you can choose either the 40 hour driving course or any of our eight other driving courses. If 40 hours seems a little too much, why not check out our 35 hour driving course? It’s great for confident learners who already have a bit of experience under their belt.

If you need extra help deciding, you can also visit our course recommender. With this simple, fun and interactive tool, you only need to answer a few simple questions about your prior driving experience. It’ll then crunch the numbers and give you a personalised recommendation!

Still wondering whether intensive courses really work? Ask the thousands of learners who have already got their licence with us! There’s Cheryl, for example, who got her licence after taking a 24-year break from driving. Or there’s Daniel, who went from total beginner to qualified driver in the space of just seven days. Better yet, take a look at our newly qualified drivers yourself in our top pass photos in June.

With PassMeFast, we do the hard work—you do the driving. Book today to get on the road fast!
