Stoke on Trent and Newcastle Under Lyme are in the middle of the country. It’s central to many different driving experiences from the A50 and A500 dual carriageways to the busy city centre of Hanley, Longton, Tunstall and Burslem. It also has many great areas to learn and practice the basic skills in small residential areas such as Parkhall, Meir Park and Clayton. Then really testing yourself with the many busy roundabouts across the A500 such as Basford and the smaller fast moving roundabouts of Smallthorne.

Driving Test Centres
Stoke-on-Trent has two driving test centres. One is based in Newcastle-under-Lyme and the other in Cobridge with each test centre covering slightly different areas. From Newcastle-under-Lyme, you may find yourself driving through Keele, Audley, Knutton, Wolstanton, Bradwell, Silverdale, Blurton and Trent Vale. From Cobridge you may be learning to drive through Hanley, Burslem, Tunstall, Kidsgrove and Maybank. Crewe and Stafford have only one driving centre each.
Driving on a Motorway
These days you do not have to have passed your driving test to drive on the motorway. You do however need to be with a qualified driving instructor in a dual controlled car. This will help build your confidence and make motorway driving more of a norm. We all know family or friends who will never go on a motorway.
Electric Tuition Vehicles
Many of our cars are electric vehicles meaning that when you are learning you are not wasting fuel and adding to climate change. We have the most electric cars in the Stoke-on-Trent area.
We also offer a free resource centre that can help you with your theory and help you recap your basic skills either before or after your driving lesson.
Remember we are here for you whether you have never driven before or if you have started and then stopped. Maybe you have failed your driving test and would like a different opinion on your driving. Feel free to contact us even if it’s just to ask for advice.
Driving, as the DVSA says, is a “Skill for Life”, and will open up many opportunities to further your career and offers the chance to expand your family and social life. Make that call today to book your first driving lesson with Stoke Driving School. You won’t be disappointed.
