Here at Apex Driving School in Morden we have a number of DSA approved driving instructors in the Morden and Merton area, allowing us to offer driving lessons from local instructors familiar with the roads and traffic. This includes the test routes an examiner will use when on your practical driving test, so you get real behind the wheel training that helps you pass first time.
Areas of importance when taking driving lessons in Morden
During your driving lessons in Morden, your instructor will know which areas and roads to take you depending on your ability and lesson plan for that day. A suitable area without heavy traffic is required for each lesson plan to go smoothly. For instance, it’s no good doing your reversing lessons on a busy road, and thus be unable to perform the manoeuvre enough times to master it independently. Below are a small example of driving lesson plans and suitable areas for drivers’ education in Morden:
Lesson Plan: Moving away and stopping
The Green Lane or Victoria road areas are ideal. Moving away and re-parking your car is an essential starting point for all beginner drivers.
Lesson Plan: Lane Discipline
Bishopsford Road Morden is very good for learning the importance of road positioning and lane discipline. Generally the left lane is the normal lane to drive in. Driving lessons in Morden can be tricky for learner drivers, with its varying bus lanes.
Lesson Plan: Roundabouts
The Apex Driving School in Morden is able to take advantage of the roundabouts around the driving test centre, which is ideal for gaining experience. There are a number of rules for safe driving at roundabouts - signalling to enter and exit is especially important. Your driving instructor will show you how to enter and exit roundabouts in Morden Hall Road, the 6 exits of the one near Middleton Road and the Beverley roundabout.
Lesson Plan: Pedestrian Crossings
Pedestrian crossings will be tackled once driving lessons progress to main roads. We will concentrate on the pedestrian crossings around the Tube Station, and there are many others in nearby Mitcham. You will learn how to approach them safely, and with due regard to other cars and road users.
Lesson Plan: Dual Carriageways and Lane Discipline
The A217 near Rose Hill is ideal for this subject. With fast vehicles all around you, this road is perfect for teaching you to make lane discipline decisions. You must be able to control the car at speed during the use of lane discipline.
Lesson Plan: Meeting Traffic
The last part of your driving lessons in Morden involves meeting traffic, which is where parked vehicles or other road obstructions narrow the road up. Vehicles riding or driving towards each other have to make decisions. The best policy is to drive defensively and not aggressively. It won’t be hard to find such areas in Morden.
There are many more places known to us that are suitable for various driving exercises. There may well be occasions you need to be taken to another area for your test; for example Croydon. All our instructors are just as familiar in these other areas to give you the best places to go to improve your chances of a first time pass!
Roger from Morden
I passed on my first attempt thanks to my instructor from Apex. I thought it would take me a long time based on what my friends said about other schools. Not the case with Apex. I passed my theory after 4 weeks and my practical after 10 weeks. Thanks Apex.
Zoe from Morden
I passed with Apex 10 years ago on Automatic and now have passed on manual with them. What can I say other than thanks for the last ten years. My kids are only 6 years old but I can guarantee they will learn with Apex too.
Zoran from Morden
