Learning to drive in Oldham

In a busy city such as Manchester, you’ll need to have your wits about you at all times when on the road. That’s because there are a wide range of static and developing hazards that you’ll need to be aware of—everything from a tricky multi-lane roundabout to the possibility of cyclists dodging in and out of traffic could have an impact on your driving.

The DVSA recommends 22 hours of private practice before taking the practical driving test.

Here are some great places you can practise in Manchester.

Novice Driver

Globe Industrial Park: This industrial area in Dukinfield is popular with new learners because of its wide roads and lack of traffic. Sundays are especially quiet so there is a chance you’ll have the area to yourself.

Bower Street: Located in Newton Heath, this wide, straight road comprises of a few residential properties and business addresses. It’s generally quiet most of the day so it’s a good place to head to if you’re looking to do some weekday practice.

Lyntown Trading Estate: If you’re based in Salford or West Manchester, this business park is a good choice for those first few sessions behind the wheel. It’s made up of a couple of wide roads with just enough bends for you to get better with your steering and car placement. Try to head here at the weekend, as on weekdays the roads are made narrower by parked cars.

Colman Gardens: If you’re looking for somewhere quiet, head to this residential road in Ordsall, Salford. It’s also a good spot to learn the basics of roundabouts, with a mini roundabout at the entrance of the road. However, make sure to avoid the school rush as there’s a primary school around the corner.

Intermediate Driver

Kingsway: This long residential street in Alkrington, Middleton, has three roundabouts. It’s rather quiet for most of the day, so it’s a great place to get to grips with simpler roundabouts before heading onto some busier ones.

Windermere Road: While you’re in Middleton, Windermere Road is useful for getting some practice on those tricky hill starts. It is a long residential street that loops up a hill and then back down again. So whichever way you approach it, you’ll have plenty of chances to get some hill starts in!

Waterloo Road: If you’re looking to up your confidence on urban roads, Waterloo Road in Cheetham Hill will do the trick. With plenty of traffic lights and junctions, it’s a good place to get used to a range of road systems.

Oldham Road: Dual carriageways are likely to come up on your driving test, so it’s worth getting familiar with them. Oldham Road is a good choice if you’re looking for a road out of the city. You will also get practice at lane placement, as you face a fair share of traffic lights and junctions!

Confident Driver

Boardman Lane: If you’re looking to stretch yourself on a rural road, you can’t get much better than Boardman Lane. To the west of Middleton, it’s bordered by hedges on either side and it’s narrow enough that you’ll have to pull over if you encounter another car.

Medlock Street Junction: Take Princess Road, also known as the A5103, towards the city centre and you’ll hit this busy multi-lane roundabout where it crosses the ring road. There aren’t any traffic lights to help you onto the roundabout, so it’s handy for getting used to joining a roundabout safely. Don’t forget that since the ring road is a motorway, you can’t turn onto it without your instructor until you’ve passed your test.

Chinatown: It’s not often that we tell new drivers to brave the city centre, but you’ll get some valuable experience on one-way systems if you head over to Manchester’s Chinatown and the surrounding areas. We’d recommend switching off that sat nav and working hard on following the one-way signs instead.

Stamford Brook Road: Have a go at joining Manchester Road from Stamford Brook Road, or vice versa. It’s a busy junction and you’ll have multiple lanes, traffic lights and a dreaded box junction to contend with.
