Due to its location on the edge of town, Newbury practical test centre will feature a wide range of road systems. This will range from rural country roads, busy town driving, residential roads and high-speed “A” roads such as the A339.

Newbury – Country Lanes

The country lanes around Newbury seem to be very pretty but can be extremely dangerous due to its high-speed limits combined with sharp unpredictable bends. Plenty of practice is highly recommended in order the learner driver be able to assess the same speed at which to approach the sharp unpredictable bends. The busy town roads will involve crossroads, various junctions and roundabouts. Newbury has several roundabouts ranging from small mini-roundabouts to large multilane roundabouts controlled by traffic lights. Many learner drivers tend to fail on these roundabouts. The driving examiner will this you to slow down and be prepared to stop. However, if the opportunity arises and the road is clear, you are expected to proceed without stopping.

Newbury – Residential Roads

The large amount driving is done on the residential roads which are commonly used in the reverse manoeuvre and possibly the emergency stop exercise. These residential roads seem relatively easy. However, it is very important learner driver actively looks ahead for the oncoming vehicle. As many of these roads are narrow and often have parked vehicles, the meeting can be a problem.

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.
