Private Manoeuvring Area
Our 5200 sq. metre tarmacadam manoeuvring area is situated in a quiet off road area a few minutes from our training centre, and is one of the largest LGV / PCV private training and driving practice areas in the North West. It allows for one or more vehicles to practice in safety at the same time.
This is an ideal place to begin your training with vehicle familiarisation, general vehicle control, reversing, braking and gear changing. No traffic, no road obstacles - just a wide open space to use to build up your confidence.
Getting used to a vehicle does take time, especially if you have never driven a large vehicle before. We set out a circuit to drive round, with stops and starts so that you develop good vehicle control.
When used for reversing practice the driving practice area is setup as you will find for the actual the driving test.
Time spent here is time well spent. You will go to your test prepared and with confidence.
The driving practice area can be used for:
