24 Apr Driving Tips in Hampton
Hampton is one of the most beautiful parts of London, which makes it a fantastic place to learn how to drive.
Sites such as Hampton Court Palace and Richmond Park are nearby and the River Thames is only a stone’s throw away, with leafy drives and wide roads making up much of this part of the city. Bushy Park is also one of the major local landmarks in Hampton.
There are a wide range of roads in Hampton, which makes it an excellent place to start learning.
One of the benefits of taking driving lessons in Hampton is that the area is between Ashford Test Centre, Isleworth Test Centre and Tolworth Test Centre, which means that there is a good chance learner drivers who are used to Hampton’s roads will encounter many of the same places on their test.
Our instructors here at Wimbledon Driving School have lots of local knowledge to ensure you always feel in safe hands when you get behind the wheel for driving lessons in Hampton.
Driving in Hampton as a learner
Hampton is a major commuting route, and as there is no river crossing in this part of the city the roads can get very busy during peak times.
With Hampton also providing links to the M3, M4 and M25, as well as to the nearby Heathrow Airport, it can be a testing place for a learner driver.
However, there are lots of spots within Hampton itself that are ideal for driving lessons. For example, people needing to work on their turn in the road will find Ormond Crescent to be suitable, while the park of Buckingham Road by Old Farm Road is another option.
Indeed, those on their first driving lesson in Hampton are likely to spend a lot of time in Ormond Crescent, as this is one of the quietest streets in the area.
Intermediate learners can practise reversing around a corner in Manor Gardens. There are also plenty of local roundabouts on which to practice.
By learning to drive in Hampton with instructors here at Wimbledon Driving School, you can be ready to take your test before you know it.
