The Portsmouth, Southsea and Waterlooville area’s are a wonderful place to learn how to drive. Quiet residential streets and large open roads along Southsea sea front are perfect for learning the basics and fundamental manoeuvers. Don’t get too distracted by the Spinnaker Tower, WW2 Soldier Memorial or wonderful views over the Solent whilst you’re driving though! Then, once you have the skills and confidence, drive into Portsmouth city’s narrow streets for lots of great urban driving practice. Navigate your way past the eclectic shops and artisan cafes of Albert Road or take on the speed humps along Fawcett Road.
Make your way around the busy A3 interchange by the Portsmouth University Student Union for some roundabout and traffic light experience, before taking in a bit of culture down the quaint roads of Old Portsmouth. Or why not head out of town to Portsdown Hill to practice your hill starts! Whatever the driving skills you need to learn or build on, there are plenty of places to go in and around Portsmouth and Southsea to keep your driving lessons interesting and most importantly of all, fun!
Surrounding areas, you have Waterlooville where you can take in the national parks such as Queen Elizabeths Countrypark and venture up Butser Hill, or visit Portchester Castle or Port Solent and its quaint harbour and wooden decks and walkways with restaurants where you can eat by the water.
During your driving lessons in Portsmouth, Southsea, Lee on the Solent, Portchester or Waterlooville, you will get to experience the busy driving of the dual carriageways, motorways, and busy city driving, which will prepare you for when you pass your driving test, and be exposed to driving all of these area’s to build your skill and awareness of varying road situations.
Once you pass your driving test, take a trip on Brittany Ferries from Portsmouth to France and drive the amazing French countryside.
