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.
Sherborne is a great place to start learning to drive. There is the Ridgeway estate to start off in, then through the town as you develop.
If you a particularly nervous learner we may start your lessons in a quiet car park to give you more space and less chance of meeting other road users.
Your Driving Lessons in Sherborne
If this is your 1st driving experience you will start your lessons in either a quiet car park or in the Ridgeway estate. If you start in the Ridgeway estate you will be in St.Catherine’s Crescent and complete a left turns route onto Ridgeway and back into the Crescent. There are lots of other roads in the estate you can progress onto and learn how to do hill starts, junctions and manoeuvres. Bradford Road is great for learning how to do an Emergency Stop, and the town has plenty traffic lights, pedestrian crossings and meeting places to learn all you need to know before heading into Yeovil.
Eventually you will start to drive into Yeovil to develop your skills further and cover other topics such as roundabouts and dual carriageways.
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.
