The following suburbs and surrounding towns and suburbs such as Mytchett, Farnborough, Aldershot, Blackwater, Camberley are all populated with a variety of drivers not just in their own vehicles but, tradespeople in their vans, trucks, HGV’s, buses, taxis and let’s not forget cyclists, motorbike riders and the ever present pedestrian, trying to get to work or school.

Don’t worry if you forget anything, your instructor will use a drivers record of progress, which keeps a track of all that you have done.

Car control can be a lot to take in at first – it’s all about physical motor reactions, which sometimes require a new range of skills, response times and hand-to-eye co-ordination skills. Even a simple procedure like moving off involves dealing with the clutch, gears, handbrake, indicators and checking the mirrors – it’s like you’re in multitasking overdrive. But don’t worry, your instructor will go over these areas time and time again until you gradually begin to do more on your own.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions, that’s what your instructor expects, and will encourage you to do, if you don’t ask you will never learn. But don’t worry if this makes you uncomfortable – hopefully you’ll relax as you become familiar with the situation.

It is recommended that prior to taking your test you should have had 40 hours in-car tuition with a qualified driving instructor and then another 25-30 hours practice with friends or family.

We have quite a few driving instructors in and around the Ash Vale and Camberley area that will design a driving course that suits you and will prepare you for all of the driving modules that will get you ready for the theory and eventually the driving test. All of our driving instructors are fully qualified DVSADI’s this means that they are Driving & Vehicle Standards Approved Driving Instructors, and that they have been police CRB checked.

These tips are provided in conjunction with Blue School of Motoring – a Ash Vale driving school that gets results for learner drivers.

We strongly recommend that all candidates prepare thoroughly for the test. To help prepare we recommend The Highway Code, relevant books from our Essential Skills series and Know Your Traffic Signs. The official theory test books and Apps contain the multiple choice questions. The Apps show screens similar to those used in the multiple-choice part of the test and information about hazard perception.

Being a safe driver with good hazard perception skills means being able to use speed correctly, keeping the correct distance between yourself and other road users, scanning the road effectively, anticipating and planning for potential hazards.

All these skills can be taught effectively. You should prepare with a ‘Blue’ professional instructor as part of a structured programme of on-road tuition, the recommended driving syllabus.

Good luck with your driver training programme, and don’t forget if you need any help, just ask.

Learning to drive in the Ash Vale

area is a great opportunity as there so many different types of driving conditions and varying road systems to experience that are covered in the Highway Code and the National Driving Standards. The Ash Vale Borough has a population of about 6,000 and this is growing every day, so the road systems are at peak hours very busy and demanding places to drive.

When you enter the Surrey Heath Borough from either east or west and head towards the town centre you immediately encounter a sprawling suburban mix of driving conditions from roundabouts, dual carriageways, motorways, heavily built up housing estates, pedestrian crossings, to T-Junctions and crossroads, where you meet a wide variety of road users.
