fastPass can offer crash courses throughout the Ballater and surrounding areas
The cost of a practical test is included, as well as the theory test if needed, and we offer courses in manual cars as well as automatic (subject to availability)
The intensive courses we arrange in Ballater can be 3 to 8 hours every day, over 3 to 15 days.
The practical test is usually taken on the last day of the course, (although this doesn’t necessarily need to be the case, if you prefer to separate the tuition from the test), with each lesson taken by a driving instructor local to your area.
We also have an online website that can provide you with free online theory training to help you prepare for your theory test and the website includes over 2,500 mock questions and 135 hazard perception clips. If you have your own practical test booked we can provide a lesson only course to get you ready for that date.
If you are raring to go with your theory test already passed but your local test centres waiting time is holding you back, one of our fastPass fastTest Residential courses, may be the way to go.
We have a few selected areas where we can arrange a course for within a fortnight, your travel and accommodation will be extra but we will arrange any details on your behalf.
(All course prices quoted will not include your accommodation or travel, these will be added once the course is arranged)
We understand that choosing the right course can be difficult, which is why fastPass has developed its Intensive Course Calculator.
This will tell you the exact price and availability in Ballater for the best course for you.
The actual start date, times and duration of the lessons will be determined by the course you pick, and will be confirmed with you by our staff once you have paid your deposit. As a guide:
- If you’re a Total beginner, we’d suggest 40+ hours over 1 or 2 weeks
- If you’re a Novice, we’d suggest 30 to 40 hours over 1 or 2 weeks
- If you’d class yourself as “Intermediate”, 25 to 30 hours should suit
- As an Experienced learner you might need 15 to 20 hours
- If you Recently failed a test, 10 hours might be enough.
Once we’ve recommended a course for you, you can pay the deposit by phoning us between 8 and 8 weekdays, or between 9 and 5 on Saturdays.
