Driving lessons Selly Oak are available with 1stDrive.com
Selly Oak is a very busy and crowded area of Birmingham. It’s far from an ideal to start driving lessons from but don’t worry.
My 20 years experience in the job means I know every single road for miles around. We’ll drive somewhere quieter like Northfield or Kings Norton to begin with until you feel ready to drive around Selly Oak.
Driving lessons Selly Oak
Selly Oak is a bustling and busy area thanks to the University of Birmingham being situated there.
The area is undergoing major “improvements” as of 2019 which is only going to make the area busier. Their solution to solving the traffic problem has been to narrow the roads and put more housing in the area (good luck working that one out!).
The tight roads of the area like Heeley road and Tiverton road challenge even experienced drivers. There is simply no room at all and you can barely squeeze two cars past if you’re both driving at 1mph.
Not really selling this to you am I?
Don’t worry because my car has a neat trick you can use for narrow roads. My knowledge of the area also ensures we can take the best route out of the area at all times.
Other features of Selly Oak
The famous Selly Oak triangle is changing as of 2019. It was a horrific junction where every road came together at the same time right outside a shopping centre.
The solution to this was to build another shopping centre and a terrible roundabout where the lanes make so sense unless you study the layout from above first!
They also built Birmingham’s main hospital, The Queen Elizabeth, there too. You have to wonder what these people planning roads are thinking when they make these designs.
You’ll learn to handle all this on your driving lessons and if you can drive in Selly Oak then you’ll be able to drive anywhere.
