Driving Lessons in Oswestry

Our driving instructor's Nigel Richards and Ben Taylor knows the Oswestry area well. Ben was one of the first instructors to be trained by Nigel Richards Driving School Instructor Training programme to implement our system that has been perfected over the past 20+ years. We have never stopped improving the system yet still retain the time served principle of good value.

We have incorporated the latest “Coaching” techniques suggested by the DVSA into our instruction syllabus to ensure each lesson is totally client centred.

With our vast experience we are the first choice for driving lessons in Oswestry to get you off the public transport, out of the cold bus stops and give you the independence you deserve!

All our instructors are CRB inspected and trained to the a high standard so you know you in safe hands and have our 25 years of experience to guide you to the test pass.

If you already have some driving experience then we can often start with an assessment on one of the country roads before edging you into the busier areas if needed. The faster A5 road very often offers some overtaking opportunities especially in the Summer months with the slower moving agricultural vehicles being more present in this popular farming area.

Oswestry Learners

Learning to drive in Oswestry is in general a pleasant experience due to the small test route areas covered and the moderate traffic levels. There are some nice easy Industrial areas such as the Maesbury Road and Mile Oak Industrial Estate areas for you to learn the basic controls. Moving up to the nursery routes around Morda, College Road areas is an easy step from the industrial areas. As your confidence grows you will be moved up to the busier A5 roundabouts and out to the villages in the area. These can be as far out as Gobowen and Whittington, taking in the sweeping country roads to get there and back where a good demonstration of speed and control should be displayed.

The reversing exercises of reverse and forward bay parking can be carried out on the driving test centre but you may also be asked to perform them in a public or supermarket carpark such as Morrisons or Sainsburys near Leg Street.

Oswestry Driving Test Centre

The driving test centre in Oswestry is located on the Maesbury Road Industrial area. The address is Mile Oak Industrial Estate, Maesbury Road, Oswestry, Shropshire, SY10 8GA.

It is accessed through the entrance to Oswestry Waste Paper company and it tucked away in the corner to the right. Due to the large number of heavy goods vehicles using the entrance extreme caution should be taken when entering and leaving the test centre.

The driving tests usually consist of around 45 minutes driving and take in all the different types of roads this rural test centre offers. There is a good mix of inner town roads and more open country roads, but there is no dual carriageway.

"I found Nigel Richards Driving School good value for money. My instructor Ben Taylor was friendly and approachable. He was also flexible with lesson booking times to fit in with my schedule. And best of all I passed 1st time!!"Driving Lessons Oswestry

I heard a lot of good comments about the driving school and got the number off a friend. I enjoyed learning a lot of new things about driving and getting along with my driving instructor. I would recommend Nigel Richards Driving School because they try their hardest to get you to pass and wouldn't let you take the test if you were not ready.

Learning to drive with Nigel Richards Driving School was very good as my instructor Ben used a variety of methods when I didnt understand" "I chose them based on the Good Reputation around Wrexham and I would recommend as I found them very patient and a good knowledge of driving when I made mistakes Ben knew the reason and how to help me learn. If I was uncomfortable on certain areas we would go over until i felt comfortable" "I Always enjoyed having a weekly lesson, Thanks.

If there's one thing that I could best describe my driving instructor Ben Taylor and that would be PATIENT. He was very calm as he worked on all things that I needed to improve on. The entire experience exceeded my expectations. I'm so glad that my friend recommended me this school. I couldn't forget this funny experience. I was unware that my instructor was already at school, and I was at home thinking that there was no class! "I'm so glad I passed the driving test!
