Newgate driving courses are available from fastPass intensive driving school.
We give lessons in manual or automatic cars, each fitted with dual controls, and our courses contain theory and practical tests as required.
Newgate intensive courses enable you to learn to drive in just one or two weeks, with 3 to 8 hours of driving lessons each day booked over a small number of days.
A practical test is usually booked for the end of the week, and qualified local driving instructors provide the tuition.
If you have not yet passed your theory we can offer free online theory support through our specialised website that holds over 2,500 mock questions and 135 hazard perception clips, to which you will have unlimited access, or if you’ve already booked your driving test. We can also offer 'Lessons only' courses for those in a hurry.
In many areas, there’s a wait for practical test dates, so a Residential course may be your best option.
You’ll have to pay separately for travel and accommodation, although we can organise this for you, and in some parts of the country crash courses can be booked in 2 weeks.
(Separate charges for travel and accommodation are not included in our prices.)
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 Newgate.
Course arrangements will be determined by the course you pick and will be confirmed with office staff once the deposit has been taken.
