As demand grew the introduction of the computer with it's e mail and internet facilities became a necessity our own web site - passfast.com - came into being. The web site is a mine of information and is a valuable source for potential and existing clients.
To increase security and simplify the transfer of personal information I have introduced the secure online booking system. Anyone can use this system to book a course and payment is made by Credit/Debit card through RBS World Pay. It is primarily aimed at overseas and offshore clients and considerably reduces the risk in transferring information compared to e mail and telephone. When viewing a secure page the validity of the Security Certificate can be viewed by double clicking the padlock on the edge of the screen.
Enquiries are received from as far afield as Singapore, United Arab Emirates, Europe including Germany, France and Spain also United States to name a few. Very often there are difficulties with the quality of telephone calls from abroad not to mention the exorbitant cost and also having to deal with different time zones so the ability to book and pay for courses securely on this web site is a big advantage. back to the top
In addition to the facility to book an intensive course using the secure online booking form, all financial transactions are undertaken using The Royal Bank of Scotland WorldPay Secure Online Payment System.
All lessons and courses can be paid securely on this web site which eliminates much of the risk compared to passing details by telephone and carrying cash. If you experience difficulty in using the online system please let us know.
Cash is still acceptable for weekly lessons and block bookings but all courses are payable by Credit/Debit card only.
All personal information held on file is password protected and fully encrypted with military-grade AES encryption. back to the top

No one had ever heard of "Intensive Driving Courses", that was back in the '60's when the cost of driving lessons was around £1-25 per hour! I can just hear you say "I wish". It was mostly one lesson per week and take forever to pass your test!
Many people take life at the gallop now and want to pass their test like yesterday and there's no faster way to do it than with an intensive course. back to the top
As Intensive Driving Courses became more popular and more people discovered the effectiveness of this method of learning to drive the demand became intense and it was apparant that this was where the future lay and as we had been specialising in this method of learning for a considerable period of time we changed our name to Tayside Driving Courses to make it more obvious that this was our speciality and was highly recommended.
We still offer weekly lessons and block bookings for those who wish to take life a bit slower and who don't mind taking a bit longer to learn. back to the top
