fastPass intensive driving school provides intensive, or “crash”, driving courses throughout Gateshead.
We include a practical driving test, (and a theory test, too, if required), and driving lessons can usually be delivered in an automatic, or manual, dual-controlled tuition car.
Our school specialise in providing courses that are done within a one to two week period, allowing the pupil to complete 3 to 8 hours of lessons a day depending on the course chosen.
Most of our courses are arranged with the practical test done on the last day of the course, with all the lessons leading up to that day, and all courses being given by a fully qualified instructor.
Even if you haven’t yet passed your theory test, this can be organised as part of your course, and we offer free online theory tests with thousands of questions and hundreds of video clips to help you pass. If you’ve booked your own test, fastPass, can arrange local lessons up to that test date for you.
If you’ve passed your theory test but know there’s a long waiting list at your local driving test centre and you need to pass your practical test quickly, a fastPass QuickTest Residential course, may be your answer.
In some areas we are able to arrange courses in less than a fortnight, and although your travel and accommodation will be extra, we can make whatever extra arrangements may be necessary on your behalf.
(These extra charges WILL NOT be included in any course quote we provide on this website.)
We have developed a Course Calculator to ensure you choose the right course for you in a few easy steps.
This will give you prices and availability for the best course available to you in Gateshead.
Course arrangements will be determined by the course you pick and will be confirmed with office staff once the deposit has been taken.
- “Total beginner” course is 40+ hours over 1 or 2 weeks

If you want to, once our Calculator process has recommended a choice of courses for you, you’ll be able to select a course online by paying a small deposit, or you can book by telephoning us weekdays between 8 and 8, or Saturdays between 9 and 5.
