Learn to drive in Stourbridge
Stourbridge is a great area to learn to drive, whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced learner. its also a very popular area to learn to drive together with the local suburbs of Lye, Wollescote, Wollaston, Hagley, Pedmore and the surrounding area.
There is a vast array of different driving scenarios to aid learning including Stourbridge Town Centre, the Ring Road, the quieter residential estates and of course Merry Hill with its urban roads, dual carriageways and car parks is only minutes away.
Many people are attending Stourbridge College, King Edward College and the sixth forms at Oldswinford Hospital School and Pedmore High School. Chris is able to schedule lessons for pickup and drop off at these colleges in students free periods and when lessons have finished for the day with the lessons ending at the students homes.
When beginning our learning journey, Chris will often take new learners to the Pedmore estates in Stourbridge which offers roads ideally suited to the new driver with straight roads, bends to practice steering, hills and a great variety of junctions. As students progress there are roundabouts to learn and practice locally at the Pedmore and Foley Arms junctions.
As we progress we have the main roads of Grange Lane, Lye Cross and the faster speed limits of Ham Lane, practicing merging onto the main road from the Chawn Park estate.
Chris always chooses the type of roads that the student needs to practice existing skills and challenges for the next level of our learning. Chris grew up in this area and has a great knowledge of all the local roads meaning that especially to start with, we can keep our driving local so that we don't have to waste lesson time with Chris having to drive to different areas to practice particular skills. Don't worry Chris will never put you in a situation where you are completely out of your depth on the roads and all progression is carefully monitored and agreed with the student.
As we become more experienced we look to the busier roads of Merry Hill and the surrounding urban dual carriageways. Rural dual carriageways with higher speed limits including national speed limit roads are also close with the A491 and A456 being only minutes away.
As for practicing the manoeuvres, we use the local car parks, Merry Hill car parks and local supermarket car parks to practice our bay parking while the quieter estates are ideal to start our practice of the reverse (parallel) park.
From the Stourbridge area Chris would suggest that we use the new Dudley Test Centre and as the student progresses in experience to the point where they feel confident driving on pretty much any of the local roads, we expand our wings and spend time driving around Lower Gornal, Kingswinford and the local test routes.
