With a mixture of nursery routes and major roads, Sutton is ideal for learner drivers. There are plenty of choices if you’re looking for somewhere quiet to get to grips with life behind the wheel. Sutton’s long, residential roads are just the ticket, meeting each other at crossroads, mini-roundabouts, and T junctions.
The roads around Overton Grange school are just this kind. They are perfect for first time practice (so long as you’re there outside the school rush). You can gain confidence with the clutch, and come back later to try out manoeuvres like reversing around a corner, pulling away safely, emergency stops, and all sorts.
Your instructor will help you get used to some of Sutton’s trickier areas. For example, the busy Rose Hill roundabout can look daunting. It joins several major roads including the A217 and the A297, but once you know which lane you need to be in you’ll be nailing it in no time! There’s also a one-way system to get your head around, but practice makes perfect and it won’t be long before it feels like second nature.

Manual lessons aren’t for everybody, so we offer automatic driving lessons in Sutton too.
Make sure that you give yourself some time to think about which lessons you’d like to take. With a manual licence you can drive a manual or automatic car, but with an automatic licence you can only drive an automatic. On the other hand, there’s a bit less to get your head around if you’re learning in an automatic car, so you’re likely to get that driving test passed quicker.
The many junctions of Sutton’s residential areas might be easier with an automatic, but a manual could give you a greater feeling of control come the longer dual carriageways like the A217.
Your instructor will introduce you to the test routes that could come up in your practical driving test. It’s important to get yourself familiar with these routes so that you give yourself the maximum chance of passing your test first time!
We’ve helped over 300,000 learners to pass their driving test. Imagine how many are in Sutton! Why not take a look at some of the lovely things they say about us?
