Learning to drive in Southampton

Take advantage of the many dual carriageways to get lots of practice as well as the many suburban residential streets surrounding the city. Southampton can be a challenging place for driving lessons but it will definitely give you masses of confidence come test time!

Our top tip is to start off in a peaceful residential area until you’ve built up your skills behind the wheel. Check for suitable places near your home, but if you’re stuck for ideas then try Portswood and Thornhill. They’ll be just the ticket if you’re a brand new driver looking to practise those more complex manoeuvres. We don’t need to tell you that the areas near the West Quay shopping centre and Ocean Village will be very busy.

Manual and automatic driving lessons

We have manual and automatic lessons in Southampton, to offer you the very best!

It’s not an easy thing to choose which type of driving lesson to go for. A manual licence means that you will be able to drive both automatic and manual vehicles once you qualify and an automatic licence means that you will only be able to drive automatic vehicles. It’s worth keeping in mind that, automatic driving lessons will often be pricier due to there being less automatic instructors available.
