Driving Lessons in Southampton!

Are you ready to become a confident driver?

Learning to drive is more than just a practical skill; it’s a gateway to a world of possibilities, offering numerous benefits that extend far beyond simply getting from point A to point B. At its core, driving provides freedom and independence, empowering individuals to chart their course through life’s journeys.

One of the greatest advantages of learning to drive is independence. No longer reliant on public transportation schedules or the availability of others for rides, drivers have the flexibility to travel on their own terms. This is why we encourage driving lessons in Southampton.

It builds confidence, resilience, and adaptability—qualities that are invaluable in navigating life’s twists and turns. Overcoming the challenges of learning to drive instills a sense of accomplishment and empowers individuals to tackle new challenges with courage and determination.

At DRIVE Driving School, we will provide you with a complete education. Whether you are a beginner or looking to enhance your skills, our courses are tailored to meet your needs. From basic vehicle control to advanced techniques, we cover it!

Additionally, at our Southampton driving school, we treat you as an individual, understanding that everyone has their own pace, and work with you to help you achieve your driving goals. We will teach you vehicle control, ways to avoid common driving hazards, and the ability to stay calm while driving. By learning to drive with us, you will become the confident driver we know you can be!

With two different test centres in Southampton, your lessons will be tailored to the area where your practical will take place. If you’re heading to Forest Hills, the A27 is a dead cert to appear, while you’re also likely to drive around areas such as Itchen and Midanbury. Meanwhile, those at the Maybush test centre may find themselves heading south towards the A33, and facing junctions such as the multi-lane Millbrook Roundabout.

1. Keep good passing distances
The test routes at Forest Hills Test Centre involve a handful of roads with lots of parked cars on either side like Harefield Road, Harrison Road and Honeysuckle Road. Keep good passing distances and look out for any crossing pedestrians obscured by the cars.

2. Watch out for buses
If you choose Forest Hill Test Centre, you’ll likely drive on the A35 which is a busy bus route. If you come across any buses, make sure to keep a safe distance and only overtake if it is safe.

3. Take a driving lesson
It’s helpful to take a final lesson before your practical test. You can practise around your chosen test centre or go over some last-minute manoeuvres. You’ll get used to the day’s conditions and hopefully get a confidence boost on top of that.
