“I’ve been doing lessons since January and today I passed first time with two minors! My instructor was John Lendrum and he was brilliant! He has a great way of teaching you how to drive, he’s calm and always has a basic and simple way of explaining how to do something that you’re having trouble with!”

Modern Learn To Drive Cars

We only use high-quality modern learner cars for our driving lessons and Nicole’s Automatic Vauxhall Corsa is a great car to learn to drive in. A compact car, the Vauxhall Corsa is small enough for you to learn the basics of driving and spatial awareness but has the feel of a large modern car inside. With a good smooth ride and comfortable seating position, you’ll really enjoy cruising around in this smart little motor!

Driving in and around Portsmouth and Southsea

The Portsmouth and Southsea area is 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 manoeuvres. 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!
