Francis at PassMeFast
When did you join PassMeFast? In July 2020.
What made you decide to join PassMeFast? It seemed like a fun and exciting place to work.
What’s your favourite thing about being a Booking Agent? The fast-moving pace constantly keeps you on your toes.
What’s the funniest thing that’s happened since you started working at PassMeFast? The office cat, Zephyr, religiously having a mad half hour around 4 o’clock!
What’s your favourite pass story? A student had an emergency test approved just following lockdown but her theory expired 3 weeks after approval. I was able to assign her an instructor, find a suitable test, and she was able to complete 25 hours in 6 days and pass, allowing her to continue nursing and supporting the country. Amazing work!
What’s the most common problem learners come to you with? Roundabouts!
What’s the best piece of advice you’d give to new drivers? Never underestimate the value of slowing things down to really listen to instruction, even on an intensive course. And check your mirrors!
