    Driving On The Roads In Basingstoke

    Learning to drive in Basingstoke is perfect for any new learner as Basingstoke is a highly populated town with many road links to major cities and other towns in and around Hampshire. With a population of 113,000 (Source: Wikipedia), it makes Basingstoke one of the larger towns in England. With the M3 placed south of the town, it makes the city more congested during peak times. Whilst the higher congestion is not liked by most motorists, it gives you a chance to experience more meeting traffic situations and oncoming traffic to give you an edge when preparing for your test. If you are not based in Basingstoke, we do cover other areas nearby like Hook, Fleet & Andover. Basingstoke is mainly residential with many rows of houses and suburban areas. Your instructor will take you across the town to experience nearby neighbourhoods like Hatch Warren, Kempshott, South View, Houndmills and Oakridge Village. Occasionally, your instructor will take you out of town to experience rural and country driving. Some nearby villages you could visit are Oakley, North Waltham, Sherfield On Loddon, Bramley, Sherborne St John and Cliddesden.
