The charms of Hull and the surrounding area
Since starting up as Arrow Driving Academy I count myself very lucky be in and around this region. Hull and the surrounding area is, for many reasons, a genuinely fantastic place to be a driving instructor. In a purely physical sense the wide range of roads and environments we have to drive in is more than adequate. From the busy A63 to the quiet coastal roads it seems to me we are only minutes away from a new driving experience. For students especially, this can be an excellent area to have lessons, each lesson can contain a diverse range of road types which all require different approaches. Although the same can be said for other areas I have found in the bigger cities it takes much longer to get around and in the course of one lesson a student may only experience inner city driving, even if that was not the intention!
Beverley in particular is a delightful town to visit and the medieval feel the town still has really has to be experienced to be understood. Though difficult to get to in a one hour lesson for students in Hull, if I get the chance I do like to take students around the roads in Beverley, at first it can be intimidating but for quick decision making and pedestrian/traffic awareness training it really is fantastic. On top of being an attractive and charismatic town, Beverley possesses a charm unlike any other. Essentially it takes the best of York, distils it and combines it with an intriguing mix of the cosmopolitan and historic.
Beverley is not on its own in catching my eye but it is a standout destination and the fact it also offers challenging driving conditions only elevates it from an instructional point of view.
Well, that’s it from me this week, again it has been a fantastic week, busy but focused and with mothers day on Sunday I am greatly looking forward to the weekend.
Oh and don’t forget to change the clocks this weekend!
