Driving Tests in Barnsley – Bury Town Roads

Barnsley driving test centre is located in a busy part of the town. Therefore, you should expect several residential roads. These roads seem very easy. However, they can be very challenging as many of the residential roads in Barnsley are narrow, with parked cars on both sides. As soon as you see an oncoming vehicle, check the rearview mirror and ease off the gas. This will give you time to think. Always be prepared to slow down and give way to oncoming vehicles.

Barnsley – Country Lanes

The driving examiner can take you out of Barnsley and into the rural ‘A’ roads such as the A628 and the A635. The rule country lanes around Barnsley are not as well maintained as residential roads. Therefore, be prepared to deal with hazards such as potholes and uneven road surface.

Manual or Automatic Intensive Driving Lessons

It’s easier to pass your driving test in a week by taking an automatic car compared to a manual. This is because you don’t have the extra task of changing gears, especially on approach to junctions such as roundabouts. This, in turn, means that you will have more time to focus on the speed and observations on the approach to such junctions. Once you’ve passed your driving test in an automatic, you will be restricted to driving only automatics. However, you are most welcome to upgrade to a manual license by retaking and passing another test.
