Learning to Drive in Henstridge
Spot On Driving has an excellent reputation in Henstridge for providing quality, client-centred driving lessons to local pupils.
We pride ourselves in treating each learner as an individual. We find out how you like to learn and adapt your lessons accordingly. This way you are much more likely to retain skills and information, as well as take responsibility for your own learning.
We understand that learning to drive can be quite daunting at first, so we ensure that we listen to any concerns you may have. Your progression and development will be at your own pace.
We provide quality eLearning for all our pupils through our website so you can prepare for your lessons in advance. You are also able to revisit what you have covered previously in preparation for your tests. Having an idea about what you are going to cover in your lesson will help your knowledge and understanding of each topic, help you to learn quicker and cover more on each lesson.
You will start your lessons at Henstridge Airfield. On the journey to the airfield, you and your instructor can get to know each other, as well as discuss driving topics such as the cockpit drill, controls, how to move, steering skills, positioning and stopping the car.
Your Driving Lessons in Henstridge
If this is your 1st driving experience you will start your lessons at Henstridge Airfield. It’s close by and a great location to get to learn how to move away and stop the car without too many other road users about. You may drive all the way, or some of the way back home on your first lesson, but it will be entirely up to you.
You will soon progress to driving to places like Marnhull, Stalbridge and Sturminster Newton to get practice with rural roads, traffic lights, hill starts, clutch skills and so on.
Eventually you will start to drive to Gillingham town and deal with the traffic lights, crossings and roundabouts. Getting to other local towns like Shaftesbury and Sherborne will be the next step. The town centres in these places can be quite challenging and it’s a great sense of achievement when you manage to drive through them.
Don’t worry though, your instructor will not take you to these places until you feel ready.
As you get closer to test standard most of your lessons will be in Yeovil so you can become familiar with the area, including the roundabouts, dual carriageways and even the road that the test centre is on. Your instructor will make sure you get experience with and become confident with, all of the more challenging locations in Yeovil to enable you to pass your test.
Your Test Centre
You will take your driving test at Yeovil Test Centre, Preston Road, Yeovil. (Abbey Manor Business Centre, Preston Road, Yeovil BA20 2EN)
You will get the chance to become very familiar with the test centre location throughout your driving lessons, and your instructor will direct you there from Henstridge via varying routes. You may go on the rural roads heading through Stalbridge on to the Deer Park towards Bishops Caundle and Sherborne, or up to the Henstridge crossroads. From here you can turn left onto the A30 and head towards Sherborne, or go ahead towards Wincanton to travel up the A303 to Yeovil.
This way you will get lots of different driving practice completed on the journey into Yeovil, from rural roads to villages, towns and dual carriageways.
How soon you start to drive into Yeovil in your lessons will be entirely up to you and your instructor, but remember that there is a lot to learn in other locations such as Gillingham, Shaftesbury and Sherborne.
