Whether you view it as a good thing or a bad thing, the year 2020 is flying by! Right at this moment we’re seeing this in a positive light, because it means it’s already time for us to countdown the top 4 pass photos from the month of August!
Prepare yourself for a bit of a refresher course bonanza, because that’s what our students have been finding most useful post-lockdown. These quick courses are the perfect choice if you’ve recently failed a test or just need to polish up your existing skills. You don’t have to take our word for it, either. Join us as we see how some real life learners earned their licence with a PassMeFast refresher course. To the list!
Send in the A(nn)-team
We start in the county of Lancashire, where we meet experienced driver Chloe. She had racked up many hours behind the wheel but never quite managed to cross the all-important finish line. That is, until she came to PassMeFast!
We set her up on our 15 hour course and introduced her to local instructor, Ann. With Ann’s help, Chloe was able to perfect her parking skills and generally get confident behind the wheel. Did their efforts pay off? We’ll let you be the judge:
They did indeed! Chloe passed her driving test and is ready to hit the road. Wahey! Her Mum was even nice enough to leave a glowing review of Chloe’s instructor:
“Ann is excellent. Can highly recommend her. She is patient, understanding and 100% knows what is needed to pass your test. Thank you.”
A great instructor can make all the difference, which is why PassMeFast only works with the best in the biz! Congratulations, Chloe!
Pass with patience
You may have seen on the news lately (or maybe you’re experiencing it yourself—hang on in there!) that practical test appointments are very hard to come by at the moment. One person who knows all about this is Greater Manchester teacher, Adam. He booked out 10 hour refresher course, but had to wait nice and patiently for a test date while the DVSA (understandably) prioritised NHS and social care workers.
What we love about Adam’s pass story is that, despite these frustrations, he always kept a cool head and an optimistic mindset. When he eventually did get to complete his course and take a practical test, this attitude really served him well!
See for yourself:
Yes, with the expert tuition of his instructor, Wayne, Adam was able to earn his licence to become a fully qualified driver. We’re so chuffed for you, Adam—congratulations!
Hard work pays off!
As you can probably imagine, learning to drive in lockdown is not a piece of cake. It requires a lot of patience, understanding and determination. One PassMeFast student who can attest to this is Damien, from Birmingham.
Damien had a bit of a negative experience learning to drive in 2019, but didn’t allow that to get in the way of his driving dreams. 2020 was going to be the year he earned his licence and (spoiler alert!) he was right!
As you can imagine if you’ve lived through this year, though, it wasn’t all plain sailing. During his 15 hour course Damien had to contend with test cancellations, COVID-related delays and last minute test nerves. With a positive attitude and some guidance from his instructor, Steve, Damien persevered and smashed his goals.
Here he is with his brand new pass certificate:
Brilliant job, Damien! Here’s a bit of what he had to say about his PassMeFast experience:
“[The] PassMeFast team were really helpful and understanding, especially Luke, Adam and Steve, who supported me through my journey and passing my test. Any time I needed help they were only a call or email away. I’m so grateful they got me to where I am now—driving my own car. I highly recommend them.”
Thank you for that lovely feedback, Damien! We hope you’re loving hitting the road in your very own car!
Strike a pose
Refresher courses can also be a great option if you’re a competent driver in another country and need to get to grips with UK roads. That’s exactly what the subject of our next top pass photo did. Fior could confidently hit the road in the Dominican Republic, but now needed to pass the UK driving test. She decided that PassMeFast’s 10 hour automatic course could be just what she needed. And she was right!
After completing her lessons with London-based instructor Cayton, Fior headed to the test centre and passed the practical test!
If we had a top pass photo pose of the month, Fior would surely win! She also took the time to leave us a short but enthusiastic 5 star review:
Thank you very much, Fior! Enjoy life as a fully qualified driver!
That’s a wrap on August’s top pass photos! If you’re interested in learning more about our courses or finding out the availability in your local area, give us a ring on 0333 123 4949.
Until next time, good luck and happy driving!
