Learn to drive in Bournemouth

If you choose the have your driving lessons in and around Bournemouth you've chosen an area which is both challenging but fun to learn in. Some of the more common areas you'll be driving around include Bournemouth, Broadstone, Canford Magna, Charminster, Corfe  Mullen, Ferndown, Kinson, Poole, and Winton. These areas all provide a good variety of road conditions and with continued practice, you will be able to enhance your driving skills and become ready for a lifetime of safe and enjoyable driving.  

For the high-level drivers there are the Upton double roundabouts up to the flyover roundabout, then 3rd exit to take the 70mph merge! These three aspects will test the driver's skills! By contrast, we have the more gentile, scenic route taking you along the semi-rural road across Broadstone roundabout up to Corfe Mullen and through Beacon Hill. A nice general drive and fun area is definitely Westbourne through to Lilliput and sandbanks, you'll enjoy that route as it's gentle with great views, although hopefully, you'll be keeping your eyes on the road ahead!

Challenging but fun subjects include Dual Carriageways and Roundabouts both of which occur between Bournemouth and Poole and you'll soon be used to the Dual Carriageways joining and exiting from the many roundabouts along the way, ie starting at Richmond Hill roundabout and exiting at Springbourne roundabout heading back through Charminster to enter the dual carriageway again. It's a fun run as you can extend it and exit at either Castlelane or Blackwater. An excellent roundabout route is  The University roundabouts / Talbot woods area, great for practice and 3 lots of 9 Roundabouts starting at Glenfurness heading up and into the University,  back around and back to East Avenue. This is 27 Roundabouts in a short time: Ideal for negotiating multi-lane roundabouts successfully.
