Perhaps this should accept:

The time passes very slowly

I agree. There should be some difference between עובר לאט and עובר לאט לאט, otherwise why would anyone bother with the second לאט? "Very slowly" is a good option.

It annoyes me too that "very slowly" isn't accepted!

In English, do you say "the time passes"? I would prefer "time passes" but that is deemed incorrect

It depends on the situation. "Time passes slowly" is a general statement that doesn't really make sense. "The time passes slowly" is how you'd describe a boring meeting.

what about: The time passes slooowly (slowly with an artistic language freedom in order to express what the subject wants to express)
