Driving Lessons in Frome, Somerset

Learning to drive in the Frome 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 Frome Borough has a population of about 160,000 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 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.

All the above require a high level of concentration so you should be able to demonstrate the ability on how to apply a systematic approach to driving, such as Mirrors, Signal, Manoeuvre Position, Speed, Look (MSM-PSL). This is a core foundation skill that all our clients at Blue School of Motoring are taught on day one on our training courses.
