Greetings, PassMeFast readers! We’ve reached that time of the week again where we share our top pass photo from the last 7 days! Talk about exciting! Though key workers are still the only learners currently allowed to take the practical test, that will soon change from next week. So, this could very well be the last learner to secure an emergency practical test! Today’s pass photo prize has been awarded to a hard-working charity worker who went from beginner to...

Meet a Booking Agent: Elliot

We’ve reached one of our favourite points of the month! Yes, it’s time for us to take a trip to the PassMeFast office to get to know another team member!

Learning to Drive With Epilepsy

Getting your driving licence is a big step for anyone—and if you have a medical condition like epilepsy, it can seem even more daunting. But don’t let all the confusing rules and horror stories of licence revocations get to you. That certainly won’t help you get on the roads. Instead, remember everyone’s driving experience is different, and that applies to learners with epilepsy as well. What’s more, we’re here to support you. We’ll clarify what the seizure requirements mean, and...

There’s a good reason why dash cams have become so popular in the last few years. It’s because they give drivers peace of mind on the road—enabling them to easily compile evidence for insurance claims, lower insurance premiums and record footage of bad drivers! But with the wide variety of dash cams available, you might find yourself stuck on where to begin. In this guide, we’re going to take you through PassMeFast’s top 10 dash cams!...

We’re finally at that time of the week where we share our top pass photo from the last 7 days! Though the majority of lockdown restrictions have been lifted (fancy a pint, anyone?), and learners are now able to start taking driving lessons once more, key workers are still the only ones able to take the practical test—until Wednesday, 22nd July at least! Today’s pass photo prize goes to a hard-working nurse associate who managed to go from learner to...

Driving in Flip Flops—Are You Breaking the Law?

Multiple pairs of flip flops

When the summer months hit, we Brits are often guilty of taking things a little too far. Starved of sunshine for so much of the year, it becomes our sacred duty to make the most of any hot weather that is thrown our way. Grown men proudly stride topless and sweaty down the high street, music worthy of an Ibiza foam party is blasted from previously sleepy terraced houses and we happily surrender our bare skin to the sun’s beams...

DVSA Answers Instructors’ Questions on Return to Testing

Driving lessons are now going ahead across England, and the resumption of practical testing is in sight. With this in mind, many of us have questions about how driving tuition will operate in the coming months. Who better to ask, then, than the body that oversees all lessons and tests: the DVSA? A recent Q&A session arranged by NASP, an association representing three-quarters of Britain’s driving instructors, saw many of the most burning questions put to senior members of the...

How to Drive an Automatic Car

Back in the day, manual cars were the default choice for most new drivers. Nowadays, however, more and more drivers are opting for automatic cars—not having to deal with the pesky clutch is seen as an opportunity too good to pass up. Though they have the reputation of being easier to drive, they can be difficult to adjust to if you’re not fully prepared. That’s why we’ve put together a guide that walks you through how to drive an automatic...
