    Driving On The Roads In Colchester

    When you start your intensive driving course in Colchester you will start off your crash course in residential streets. They are quiet and give you room to make mistakes so you can learn. Once you have gained good control over the car, your driving instructor in Colchester will start to progress you onto more busy roads. As Colchester is a large town, it has all of the roads, junctions and the majority of road signs for you to practise with.


    Colchester is positioned between other major towns such as Clacton-on-Sea, Braintree and Ipswich. The A12 dual-carriageway wraps around the north side of the town giving you the chance to practise dual carriageways also. Your instructor will take you out of town to experience local villages. This is to give you some rural training in places like West Bergholt, Great Horkesley, Langham, Ardleigh, Marks Tey, Layer Breton, Layer de la Haye, Abberton, Fingringhoe, Wivenhoe, Alresford and Great Bentley.


    Colchester has a population of 120,000 residents which makes it a large town. It can get busy during peak times in the town centre, major roads and near schools etc. Colchester is perfect to learn the whole driving syllabus as it’s large enough to have a diverse amount of roads, many meeting traffic situations and junctions.
