    Driving On The Roads In Ross-On-Wye

    Ross-On-Wye is a small market town with a population of just over 10,000, which instinctively, learner drivers can assume that driving within this area will be incredibly calm and relatively hassle-free, though as noted in 1745 by Dr John Egerton, Ross-On-Wye is, “the birthplace of British tourism;” as it offers picturesque scenery which many people from across the country come to see. This in turn transforms the peaceful and ambient roads of Ross-On-Wye into calamitous thoroughfares especially in it’s peak season during the summer. Showing it’s ability to stay up to scratch with it’s nature, Ross-On-Wye serves as the confluence of all nearby dual carriageways including the A40 and A49. These two allow to connect the market town with the other nearby towns and cities of Monmouth, Hereford and Gloucester.


    Along with Ross-On-Wye, the aforesaid towns/cities of Monmouth, Hereford and Gloucester can be utilised as training grounds for the learner driver as all three provide different driving experiences than the relatively small market town of 10,000. Gloucester especially, boasting it’s population of over 120,000, it’ll inherently have fast and cataclysmic roads for the learner to practise on. Likewise the learner driver can expect to visit the rural suburbs of Ross-On-Wye to help hone their skills in country road driving. You can expect to visit such places like Hom Green, Walford, Howle Hill, Coughton, Weston under Penyard, Bridstow, Wilton, Peterstow, Pencraig, Glewstone and Brampton Abbots.


    During the latter stages of your course, your instructor will reserve the last 3 – 5 hours training you within range of your nearest test centre, in this case this will be the one in Monmouth. They’ll teach you all sorts ranging from calming traffic measures, how to deal with roundabouts and hazard perception.
