Perfect Packages, a Last Minute Expiration and Flawless Finales—It’s Our Top 5 Pass Photos From May!


The month of May is drawing to a close and just like that we must bid farewell to bank holiday season. It’s not fair! Can you even imagine working more than one 5 day week in a row now?! Seems like a very unreasonable request, if you ask us. But, whether you like it or not, we have to—time waits for no man (or driving enthusiast).

May also saw the arrival of some much needed sunshine. And the hasty departure of said sunshine to make way for some more rain. We can’t lie, even the PassMeFast team got lured into the classic British trap of assuming summer had begun and thus feverishly purchased all of the essentials. Now we’re stuck with too many bottles of sun cream (can’t resist an offer!) and a hefty heating bill we didn’t budget for (just me?).

Don’t fret, dear reader—we do not intend to be all doom and gloom! Come rain or shine, our learners have been hitting the road to learn valuable skills and strut their stuff in front of DVSA examiners. In lieu of prolonged sunshine, their dedication is definitely keeping us going! We’re just bursting with pride at their achievements, so let’s take a look at a few passes that really stuck out to us this month. Yes, it’s time to delve into our top 5 pass photos from the month of May!

Good things come in small packages

Already a competent driver but worried that if you head straight into a driving test you’ll end up failing? Don’t want to risk wasting the money? Just book yourself in for a PassMeFast refresher course! These short and sweet packages give you just enough time to refresh your skills and prepare you to drive in a way that meets the standards set by the DVSA.

Don’t just take it from us, take it from the horse’s mouth! Or as we know him in this instance, Alex. He had lots of experience behind the wheel and could easily get from A to B, but just wasn’t sure if his manoeuvres were up to scratch. Enter PassMeFast!

Alex took our 5 hour refresher course, rocked up to his test, and this happened:

He smashed it first time! The test, that is, not the car. Great work Alex—enjoy hitting the road as a fully qualified driver!

All you have to do is call!

Learning to drive can be a nerve-wracking experience, which is why at PassMeFast we make sure all of our learners have a dedicated CX Adviser. Not only do they organise all of your tests and set you up with your ideal instructor, they’re also able to answer any queries you may have. Earning your licence goes much more smoothly when you know you have a reassuring voice at the end of the phone whenever you need it!

One learner who really appreciated our ability to answer any questions and select the best instructor for the job was Georgiana. She already had some driving experience and had settled on using an automatic car. Not a problem for PassMeFast! We teamed her up with a skilled automatic instructor and she got to work completing a 15 hour course.

Her test day soon rolled around and here’s the end result:

She breezed through—passing with only 2 minors! Georgiana was also kind enough to shower us with some praise:

“Amazing! Someone is always there to help you with any queries and my instructor Kabir made sure I was more than perfect so that I could pass my test! 1000000% would recommend!”

Thank you so much, Georgiana! Congratulations on earning your licence!

The perfect 10

For those who want a quick refresher course that still allows enough time to revisit all of the necessary skills, our 10 hour course is the perfect solution. If you decide to take it as an intensive course, you can be done and dusted in just a couple of days! Think of it as the final push to get you across that finish line.

PassMeFast student Ben went with 10, and the results speak for themselves:

Get in! Ben aced his test and is ready to hit the road. Thankfully, he paused long enough so that we could snap this ad-worthy pass photo. Thumbs up from all of us at PassMeFast HQ! Well done Ben.

Driving dreams don’t expire 

Not sure how many hours of driving lessons you need? For a quick fix that’s free of charge, you can always consult our course recommender. Or, if you’d rather get the opinion of an experienced professional, book yourself a PassMeFast course assessment.

That’s exactly what Hannah did and it introduced her to top instructor Noel and set her on the path to passing her test. Despite a few setbacks, including the fact that Hannah ‘s theory test certificate expired part way through her course, she refused to give up on her driving dreams.

You know we love a story of positivity and perseverance, and that’s exactly what we got with Hannah:

She did it! Here’s what Hannah had to say about her PassMeFast experience:

“I could not have done it without the support and patience of my instructor Noel. The main office were always on the end of the phone for any questions or queries. It is so good that you have people constantly checking for cancellations and they can get you booked in quick. Would highly recommend!”

Thank you for the kind words Hannah. Congratulations—you should be really proud of yourself!

A flawless finale

When it comes to the driving test, there are two kinds of faults you can commit: minor and major. Pick up any major (also known as serious or dangerous) fault and you’ll fail the test automatically. With minors, on the other hand, the DVSA allows you to notch up 15 before it’s considered an overall fail. You see, they understand that even skilled drivers will make small mistakes given the intensity of the test situation.

While we’re proud of all of our students when they ace their tests, some learners really do go above and beyond. Take Namron, for example. He took PassMeFast’s 10 hour course and soon after this lovely pass photo landed on our desk:

Great, we thought, another first time pass! On close inspection, though, we realised that this wasn’t just any pass. Namron aced his test first time and finished with a completely clean sheet—that’s ZERO faults of any kind! A perfect drive and a fitting end to our top 5 pass photos from May.

Incedible job, Namron! Time to hit the road!

And there you have it! What an inspiring bunch of drivers, eh? If you’re itching to get out on the road as soon as possible, you really can’t go wrong with a PassMeFast course. Give us a call on 0333 123 4949 to discuss your options, or check out our wide range of courses online.
