As well as being a great place to swim, our instructors make sure Brighton is an even better place to learn to drive! To begin, they’ll keep you to the quieter areas. Woodingdean, for example, offers plenty of peaceful, residential roads to get your head around the basics - so long as you avoid it during the school rush (at the heart of Woodingdean is the Rudyard Kipling Primary School).
If you want seaside views to brighten up your parallel parking practice, look no further than Brighton itself. Plenty of straight roads lined with parking spaces lead towards the sea. With the number of tourists visiting Brighton, you’re sure to have plenty of tight spaces to manoeuvre in and out of.
Alternatively, you can head to Coldean and try the roads around the golf course. They won’t be as busy, so you’ll be under less pressure practising your manoeuvres. There are plenty of side streets to practise reversing around a corner or emergency stops. Plus, inclined roads like Walton Bank are a good spot to perfect hills starts.
If you’re looking for dual carriageway practice, The A270 can take you east or west, away from Brighton. Head east if you want some experience driving on winding country roads. Head west if you want further dual carriageway experience - you’ll get to the A293 and from there you can head onto the A27 (the Shoreham Bypass) and get more familiar with driving at speed. You’ll also experience the Southwick Hill Tunnel leading to Chichester and eventually reaching the M27. But remember, you can only drive on the motorway with your instructor or once you’ve passed your test!

We provide manual and automatic lessons in Brighton and Hove, to offer you the best choice!
Have you thought about which driving licence you want? A manual licence lets you drive both automatic and manual vehicles once you qualify. An automatic licence will only let you drive automatic vehicles. It’s worth noting that automatic driving lessons will often be pricier due to fewer available instructors.
Think about what would suit you best around Brighton. Automatics can simplify driving in heavy traffic, but a manual gear system gives a better sense of control on longer journeys. The choice is yours!
There are a few driving test centres in Brighton, both apart from each other. Your driving instructor will help you to pick a test centre and make sure that you’re nailing all the right routes in practice before your practical driving test. Your nearest test centres are:
