A Bumper Refresher Course Bonanza—It’s Our Top 5 Pass Photos From March!

March pass photos collage

This month’s top pass photos is a bit of a strange one. I mean, let’s face it, the entire globe is going through a bit of a strange one! With the DVSA announcing that it’s cancelling driving tests for up to 3 months*, we’re sorry to say that this could be the last instalment of this particular series for a while…

…Hey—get back here! Dry those tears, stiffen that upper lip and make the most of this last morsel we’re about to serve up. There’s enough driving inspo in here to keep you motivated until summer. Promise.

So, savour the moment and enjoy this c-word free article as we display for your entertainment our top 5 pass photos of the month!

*The DVSA is continuing to carry out emergency tests for key workers. Find out if you qualify here.

Intensive course to the rescue!

We head to the county of Cheshire to meet the subject of our first top pass photo, Sam.  He had built up a pretty good amount of driving experience before he’d heard of PassMeFast, but soon booked in when he discovered our refresher courses. Sam figured a 10 hour course would be just the thing to help him perfect his existing skills and ensure he was test-ready by the time his fast-tracked test date arrived.

And he was absolutely spot on:

Go on, Sam! With a bit of hard work and some great guidance from his instructor, Stuart, Sam completed his hours and passed the all-important test. As for the scores on the doors? He finished with just 2 minors on the mark sheet. A brilliant result—well done Sam!

Nerves beaten; test passed!

Refresher courses are also the perfect antidote for those competent drivers who just can’t seem to pass because of nerves. The skills are there, but anxiety and self-doubt get in the way. Talk about frustrating!

One such learner who managed to turn her fortune around with a refresher course was Sadia from Essex. She had a few failed tests under her belt, but was determined to earn her licence. Enter PassMeFast. We set her up on our 10 hour course with instructor Lee, and the two of them got to work ironing out any bad habits and building her confidence on dual carriageways.

Well, you can imagine how thrilled we were when this pass photo came through:

Yaaaay, Sadia! Now, get ready for some blowing of our own trumpet, because we’ve made the not-so-humble decision to share the lovely words she had to say about yours truly:

“Such an amazing, fast and helpful service! Within a week PassMeFast found me an instructor. Lee was amazing and so patient! After failing 4 times I needed someone exactly like him and fortunately passed on my 5th! Very happy. Thank you PassMeFast!”

Lee is a belting instructor and we’re so happy that Sadia managed to overcome her nerves to become a fully qualified driver. Bravo!

Test-ready in Tottenham

Next up on our list is Elliott from London. He signed up for our (you guessed it!) 10 hour course and particularly enjoyed the fact that he got his very own dedicated Booking Agent. This meant that all of the admin and test appointments were taken care of, so he could focus on the driving itself.

He was paired with instructor Farid, who ensured that Elliott gained a strong familiarity of the roads in his local area and beyond. The hours were soon up, and it was time for the big day, which ended like this:

Wahey! Elliott aced the test and was promptly handed a pass certificate. Here’s what the newly-qualified driver had to say about his PassMeFast experience:

“Passed through PassMeFast at the Tottenham test centre. Sam at PassMeFast has been very responsive to emails and followed up where and when necessary. Likewise, my driving instructor Farid was great, always calm and collected. Overall a trustworthy and efficient service—thanks!” 

Ease, efficiency and enjoyment is what we aim for, Elliott! We’re so pleased that your course was a success. Have fun hitting the road sans instructor!

This has gotten out of hand

March really was the month of the 10 hour course conquerors, because it’s also what Laura, who is the subject of our next top pass photo, booked to get her on the road! Laura was a reasonably good driver, but needed to really get to grips with the manoeuvres before she could comfortably call herself test-ready.  We set her up with instructor Kevin and they soon hit the streets of Liverpool to practice pulling up on the right, along with bay and parallel parking.

Once she’d mastered the ropes and taken her practical, she was able to expertly park up at the test centre and pose for this pic:

Yep—Laura can now cast off the l-plates because she’s a qualified driver! Brilliant work from both Kevin and the star pupil herself. Congratulations, guys!

Sweet relief in the form of a 5 hour course

Curveball coming your way! We are not rounding off March’s top pass photos with yet another 10 hour course. Oh no. You see, Yannick from Barnet had so much driving experience that he only required our shortest package—a 5 hour course and fast-tracked test.

Remember Farid, the instructor who helped Elliott earn his licence? We paired him up with Yannick, too!

The results were just as positive:

Yannick breezed through his test and can now proudly call himself a fully qualified driver! We think it’s fair to say that Yannick was pretty happy with this outcome:

“I did the 5 hour course. Just passed my driving test!!!! I would like to say thank you to PassMeFast. Thank you, Farid. Thank you, PassMeFast!”

A trio of thanks! Cheers for that, Yannick. Well done on passing your test and good luck on the road!

Ready to get refreshed this summer?

And so it is, we must wrap up what could be our final top pass photos round-up for some time. Good job we ended on a belter!
