Driving Lessons Whitley

I’d like to say a massive thank you to Arran for helping me pass my test first time. His mix of professionalism and humour made each lesson extremely enjoyable and i believe that helped with my learning greatly. Would recommend him and Fastpass to absolutely everyone.



I passed my test first time today thanks to Bill from Fastpass. His teaching is brilliant, he always has a laugh and he has so much patience. I would thoroughly recommend Bill and Fastpass to anyone learning to drive. Thank you so much!!


Driving Instructors Whitley Bay. Karl S. Slatter

I came home for a week with one thing on my mind, to get through my practical driving test. We started a intensive driving course where we had various lessons on every subject. it was so tiring, but it was worth it. When the test came we had an hour before hand so i could get comfortable in the car. I wanted the test to go perfectly, however came up just short. I still passed with flying colours and now i have freedom with my license to get a car and go roaming around places. Still though i have to abide to the rules and regulations to the highway code as i’m a newly qualified driver. I highly recommend Fastpass school of motoring because it has a 81% pass rate first time. I really enjoyed my time with Fastpass and most important i want to thank my instructor Bill for being a really good mentor. Thankyou

I would like to say a massive thank you to Bill at Fastpass, when i went to Bill i was totally nervous about being out in the car. Also the past driving instructor was just messing me around. Bill has great patience,and has a lot of faith in you and can change your whole mind set of driving. Today i passed my test and i can’t thank Bill enough for all the help and support he had given me. I would recommend him to everyone, great instructor. Brooke, Seaton Sluice.

Just want to say a big thanks to Bill. I thoroughly recommend Bill and the Fastpass School of Motoring to anybody looking to learn how to drive. For someone who found driving a difficult and daunting undertaking, Bill showed enormous patience, understanding and skill in coaching me to pass my test. Most importantly, Bill is very keen to ensure that learners become drivers who will continue to apply safety and good judgement to their driving throughout their lives. Can’t recommend him enough!

Bill is a fantastic instructor; friendly, patient and thorough. Whatever stage of learning you meet him at, he will quickly shape you into a better driver. His lessons prepare you for driving, rather than just passing the test, and I must thank him for that.

Aaron Carey Customer Review
I first started driving lessons with Bill when I was still at school as I enrolled for an after school course in the Fastpass Driving School under 17s group. from that point on he has always been consistently helpful and taught me the skills I needed to pass the driving test first time. He is an excellent person, and he won’t tell you to do anything out side of your limits and will always make sure you feel comfortable whilst learning. over all I would definitely recommend Bill to anyone and that anyone who chooses Bill as their driving instructor has made the best choice they ever could.
vicky 2 Customer review from Victoria Landale
I learned to drive and successfully passed my test using Bill and Fastpass school of motoring and it was great.
Driving didn’t come naturally to me and i had trouble finding time to fit in my lessons with such a hectic schedule working full time shift work and attending college but Bill was always accommodating to my requirements. When driving with Bill he was always a calming person to talk too and could keep anyone calm and help build confidence. Always lovely and friendly whilst teaching you to the highest standards!
I would recommend Bill to anyone and have done with a few of my peers also choosing to learn with him and enjoying it as much as i did.

 Customer review from Lauren Brown
Bill was an excellent instructor and was always more than willing to help me through any problems I had; no matter how small I thought they were!
What I did in lessons always varied which kept me interested. I always came away feeling better than I did the lesson before.
Bill taught me methods and gave me advice which were specifically tailored to myself which I found extremely useful.
Passed first time with few minors, would recommend Fastpass Driving School to anybody!




Lauren Test


 Customer review from Lauren Butler
I passed my driving test in May 2013 with Fastpass. I was recommended to Bill by a friend, and I am very pleased I took up this recommendation. I feel as though I was taught not only the essential skills needed to pass a driving test (both practical and theory), but how to drive my own car by myself after passing, which made the transition from learning to drive to becoming an independent driver after passing stress free and enjoyable. Learning with Fastpass Driving School gave me confidence as a driver, and I also enjoyed the experience, I would definitely recommend learning to drive with Bill!


Lewis test Customer review from Lewis Heslop
Hi, I passed in August with Bill and I can honestly say that I would recommend him to anyone. Having been learning to drive through the Under 17s Club I can say that bill is a very patient instructor who is there to help you all the way and is especially good at identifying areas with which you might be struggling. The lessons are relaxed an enjoyable which makes the whole process a lot easier, thanks Bill!

I started with Bill on Fastpass Driving Schools Under 17 program. The driving lessons were very detailed, and we even learned about the Theory side of driving. I loved every minute of my driving lessons and couldn’t ask for a better driving instructor than Bill. Passed my driving test at Long  Benton test centre. Thanks for everything.

I felt very comfortable with Bill from the beginning. Calm reassuring, he was the perfect driving instructor. When ever I got fraught, he just calmed me down, then showed me that I could do it. Built my confidence in learning to drive. I passed my Driving Test first time.


IMGP0372 Customer review from Douglas Park
Back in 2012 I started Bill’s under 17 course with only a few months until my 17th birthday. It gave me all the basic skills that I needed, so that I could get out on the road with confidence as soon as I turned 17. I found the under 17 course an enjoyable and very valuable experience, which made the progression into driving lessons on the road much smoother and quicker. When we got out onto the road I found the lessons very enjoyable, with a good range of topics covered each lesson. What I also liked about the lessons was that the atmosphere was friendly and manoeuvres (as challenging as some may be) were explained in such a way that you couldn’t go wrong. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Bill, and I highly recommend him! I Passed first time within 7 weeks of my 17th birthday.



We found the under 17 driving lessons to be extremely practical and would highly recommend them to anyone.  Bill made sure, our son was able to hit the ground (or road) running upon his 17 th birthday, having already gained all the necessary skills to control and manoeuvre the car in the safety of off-road locations. Bill also ensured Douglas was well prepared for his Theory test, with regular input.  Only a small number of on-road lessons were required to ensure a first time pass within 7 weeks.

IMGP0262 Customer review from Anna Sanderson
After 17 yr of stopping and starting driving lessons I decided at the ripe old age of 34 to start again. I was lucky to find Bill Golder to be my final driving instructor. He is the first instructor that I felt comfortable and confident with. He had an air about him that said “I know what I’m doing and I’m good at it”. And that he was. He built my confidence and made me believe in myself that I could achieve it. I booked my test for my daughters 18th b-day which also turned out to be Bills. Knew then that I wasn’t allowed to fail. I passed my test with only 3 minors which I incurred in the last five minutes. Anyway to cut a long story short….this man is a fantastic driving instructor and I would recommend him to anyone. Thank you for helping me achieve my license and keep up the good work Bill.

Mr Gwilliam. Hexam.  I wish to thank you for your help with Aidan . His success is down to your skill and hard work. We are delighted with his 1st time pass and he will be taking further training for Pass Plus and Advanced driving with yourself, At Fastpass Driving School .


Bob at Blyth Driving test Centre
Bob at Blyth Driving test Centre   Bob from Cramlington. I was recommended to Bill from a friend. I was moving to Cyprus in 3 weeks and my job involved driving. I had to pass my driving test urgently or cancel everything.  Bill pulled out all the stops. I was a wreck with the pressure, but he coaxed me through it. The mans a Diamond. Passed  at Blyth test centre 2 days before I flew.


Dave from Killingworth. Having trained with an other driving school previously, I can appreciate why it’s important to get it right 1st time. My first experience was expensive because I was not learning anything. Bill taught me more in one lesson than I had learned in months.Best instructor in Whiley Bay.



Gemma from Bedlington. After 25 hours of lessons with my previous driving school, I was ready to give up. I hated every minute of it. A friend suggested I speak to Bill from Fastpass Driving School. My first lesson changed everything, I made progress, I had fun, I couldn’t believe the difference. The mans a genius. Passed 1st time.


Lauren from Seaton Delaval. I felt learning with an advanced driving instructor was a good idea. Bill focused totally on my needs and concerns. I liked the On-Line training service it was excellent, when combined with the handouts I had everything covered. A number of my friends are now learnng with Fastpass Driving school.


Michael from Tynemouth. I needed to pass my test to keep my job. While everyone was trying to hurry me along, Bill was a calming influence and steered me to a comfortable pass. I was introduced to him by my brother Alex who had also been trained by Bill and I would recommend him to anyone for driving lessons.
