    Driving On The Roads In Gloucester

    Gloucester is a sizeable town with a population of 112,000 residents according to the 2011 census. Located near the Welsh border in the southwest, Gloucester sits on the A4302 road. Learning to drive in Gloucester offers a diverse experience with various road layouts and complexities. The town boasts a large urban area, primarily consisting of residential and commercial zones, with the town centre featuring traffic lights and one-way systems.


    The M5 motorway runs along the eastern side of the city, providing an excellent opportunity to practice on fast lanes and tackle more complex driving scenarios. While motorway driving is not included in the practical test, gaining experience on the M5 will be beneficial for your overall driving confidence once you pass your test.


    For countryside driving and learning how to manage out-of-town routes and planning skills, your driving instructor will take you to surrounding areas such as Abbeymead, Tuffley, Elmore, Abbeydale, Barnwood, Highnam, Rudford, Hucclecote, Brockworth, Longlevens, Churchdown, Innsworth, Quedgeley, Minsterworth, Maisemore, Cranham, Whaddon, Longney, Badgeworth, Norton, Highleadon, Staverton, Montpellier, Tibberton, Hartpury, Bamfurlong, Twigworth, Putloe, Hardwicke, and Whiteway.


    This comprehensive mix of urban, suburban, and rural driving environments makes Gloucester an ideal place to learn to drive, providing you with the varied experiences necessary to become a confident and skilled driver.


    If you’re not based in Gloucester, please visit the neighbouring towns listed or visit our areas we cover page to see if we cover your area: Cheltenham, Tewkesbury & Stroud


    Upon preparing for your driving test, you will be practicing test routes, key junctions and roads to make you familiar with the roads in Gloucester. If you reside in the Gloucester area, we prioritise your test to be in Gloucester at all times, but we sometimes travel further afield to other centres like Cheltenham.

    Driving Courses In Gloucester With LPOD Academy

    Our one week driving courses in Gloucester are flexible to meet the demands of busy learners so we always plan your course ahead of time to arrange all of the necessary tests and for your instructor to book you into their diary. Your intensive driving lessons in Gloucester will consist of training over a 1 – 2 week window (dependant on the length of course).


    You can expect to do 3 – 6 hours of training per day with a break in the middle. You will be taken to a local supermarket, service station or local place to recooperate and then resume your training. Home pickup and drop-off will be included in your course at all times. If you need to be dropped off at work on any other local place nearby, we can facilitate this also.

    Taking A Driving Test In Gloucester

    We welcome learners who have yet to pass their theory test. Without a valid theory test, we cannot book your practical test, so we handle the booking and management of your theory test for you. Typically, theory test appointments are scheduled within two weeks of booking. If you don’t pass on the first attempt, we will rebook a free theory test as soon as possible.


    Our online theory course is designed to help learners prepare effectively, especially if you struggle with reading materials or English is not your primary language. This course can be completed in your spare time, whether you’re commuting, waiting for an appointment, or at home. Accessible on your phone, tablet, or computer, it’s a flexible solution to fit your schedule.


    We aim to book your practical test for the end of your intensive driving course in Gloucester, prioritising the closest test centre to where you’ve been learning. Your driving instructor will ensure you are test-ready and will advise if additional training is needed.


    While we cannot guarantee specific test dates, we frequently scout for cancellations and often secure earlier appointments. We use local test centres such as Gloucester and Cheltenham to help secure a test date for you.
