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...

Who Has Priority at an Unmarked Crossroads?

Unmarked crossroads in a forest

Imagine driving without any rules. No signposts, no traffic signals, no white lines on the roads. Nobody sure of their own rights, let alone anybody else’s. Well, although most of the UK roads aren’t like that, unmarked crossroads are a bit of an exception. Facing them is like trying to find treasure without a map: chaotic and little frustrating. Even experienced drivers can be reduced to dithering wrecks in the shadow of an unmarked crossroads, particularly when there’s more than...

The coronavirus pandemic has turned everyone’s lives upside-down.

BREAKING: Tests to End Immediately If Candidates Fail

Few driving tests are currently going ahead as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

We’ll also provide some information on who is eligible to take a driving...

If you’re unlucky enough to end up in this category, you could end up paying a fortune to insure your car. So, how do...

Normally, we here at PassMeFast would be among the first to stress the importance of the MOT test. However, these unprecedented times have forced all of us to reevaluate our priorities. This will leave many drivers with a dilemma. Should you take your car for its MOT to make sure you can still drive it legally? Or should you stick to social distancing rules and stay at home? Fortunately, the DVSA has made the decision easier for UK drivers by extending...
