Hemel Hempstead – High-Speed Roads

Located within the fire station at a retail park is Hemel Hempstead Driving Test Centre. As soon as you leave the retail park to expect a deal with a large variety of road systems. This will include large multilane roundabouts which lead to high-speed dual carriageways such as the A41. When joining a dual carriageway it is most important that you adjust your speed to match that of the traffic on the main road. Once on the main carriageway itself, you are expected to keep in the left-hand lane unless you’re overtaking.

Hemel Hempstead – Rural Country Roads

Occasionally, the driving examiners from have a Hempstead will take the candidate onto rule country roads through various villages on the outskirts of Hemel Hempstead. Many learner drivers feel under pressure to drive fast on these country roads. However, just because road may be national speed limit it does not mean that it is safe to drive at that speed. You need to judge the road and traffic conditions. So, if you’re on the country road with the national speed limit of 60 mph but you can only see six car lengths in front your maximum speed should be 30 mph.

Within the town of Hemel Hempstead itself, the driving examiner will cover many residential roads. The emergency stop exercise along with the reverse manoeuvre is often carried out on the residential roads.

When you book your last-minute intensive driving lessons, you will have the choice of learning in an automatic or a manual car. Last year there were over 1.7 million driving tests conducted. Out of these, only about 30% were taken in an automatic car.

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.

If you have no problem with the changing of gears, then it would be wise to take your last-minute intensive driving lesson and the official driving test in a manual car. Once you’ve passed in a manual car, you will in effect have 2 licenses. An automatic as well as a manual license.
