Learn to drive in Nottingham

It’s a great idea to supplement your driving lessons in Nottingham with extra practice. In fact, the DVSA recommends a minimum of 22 hours of private practice before taking the practical driving test.

According to our driving instructors Nottingham has a lot of great places to practise. Here are a few options provided by our driving instructors in Nottingham.

Novice Driver

– The Meadows: The roads are narrow around here so you’ll get plenty of practice stopping, starting, and giving way to other cars. This will be at a leisurely speed as the area is residential and traffic is light during the day.

– Bakersfield: This is nice area for some easy practise outside of your driving lessons in Nottingham. The area around Hereford Rd is great for getting a handle on the basics of steering and clutch control. Ashworth Cl is perfect for reverse parking without interference.

– The Park: With wide roads, low traffic, and a lot of corners, The Park is a brilliant place to build your confidence behind the wheel. Just remember to watch out for pedestrians and bicycles!

Intermediate driver

– Maid Marian Way Roundabout in City Centre: With three lanes and a moderate amount of traffic, this roundabout will provide a good challenge for your skills. Follow Derby Road and loop back onto Wollaton Street to see the traffic flow from a different direction.

– Queens Drive, Wilford Road Junction: This junction is complicated at first glance, but it’s well sign-posted and usually light on traffic. Come at it from a few different angles to get used to stopping, accelerating, and turning in a timely fashion.

– Residential areas in Sneinton: These areas present a nice mix of narrow residential streets cut by busier roads that feed the A612. Be prepared for cars parked on either side of the road and, at the busier junctions, wait for the best time to merge with traffic.

Confident driver

– City Centre near Intu Victoria Centre: Get ready for some heavy traffic, particularly around Glasshouse Street. A few laps around the block should sharpen your defensive driving. Remember to check your mirrors and blindspot, and keep a good awareness of everything that’s happening around you.

– Middleton Boulevard, Clifton Boulevard Roundabout: Connecting the A52 and the A6200, there’s a lot happening at this roundabout. The significant traffic and flyover of Middleton and Clifton boulevards means you’ll need to plan your lane changes in advance if you want to take the correct exit.

– Country roads near Holme Pierrepont: A little bit of country driving not too far from the city. Adbolton Lane and Holme Lane are narrow, old country roads that will give you a feel for different driving conditions, especially when wet. Watch out for people walking their dogs!
