Your Driving Lessons in Wrexham

Driving Lessons in Wrexham offer some excellent areas for complete beginners to gain their initial car control skills. Such as the huge Wrexham Industrial Estate as well as Llay and Rhosddu Industrial areas.

Once initial skills are gained pupils are moved onto nursery routes such as Sontley/Squire Yorke estates and Garden Village on the outskirts of Wrexham.

These areas offer greater challenges to the learner driver but are wonderful stepping stones from the quiet industrial areas before taking on the busier Wrexham town centre and bigger roundabouts such as Gresford, B+Q and Rhostyllen.

The surrounding villages are where most of the manoeuvres such as hill starts, angled starts and the parking exercises are carried out. We are lucky that we have plenty of hills in theses villages!

With recent changes to the driving test the forward and reverse bay parking exercises are often carried out in public car parks such as B+Q or Morrisons, Ruthin Road, Wrexham. The rural routes include Bersham, Ffrwd and the Moss Valley each presenting their own unique challenges, of which our instructors area aware of due to their expert local knowledge.

The New Driving Test

Many of the new style driving tests today are carried out under directions from a Sat Nav, which is provided by the examiner. We use the exact model they provide so as to enable full familiarity on the day of the driving test.

The roads of Wrexham offer a real challenge to any driver, therefore when passing your driving test here you can pride yourself in knowing you have reached a very good standard that in our opinion will put you in good stead to drive anywhere in the country.

Wrexham Driving Test Centre.

The Driving Test centre in Wrexham is located at Birchall House, 62 Croesnewydd Road, Wrexham LL13 7YX.
