Neath has existed since the establishment of the Roman fort of Nido, in AD 70, and many years ago was famously visited by Admiral Lord Nelson who stayed at the Castle Hotel en route to Milford Haven. No doubt the road and traffic conditions at that time were far more challenging than they are today.
Neath town now has a population of around 20,000, and learning to drive in Neath calls for a particular skill-set, being served as it is by a one-way system starting at Windsor Road, and following a circuitous route through and around the old market town, with junctions leading off at various points to Cilfrew, Cimla, Jersey Marine and Briton Ferry.
In preparation for your driving test, your A2Z driving instructor will teach you to pay particular attention to road positioning because of the cars parked on both sides of the narrow road, and anticipation because of the pedestrians seemingly coming from everywhere. Learning to drive in Neath needs both concentration and application, and this will help you prepare for your driving test at nearby Swansea, (or Bridgend).
Our locally based A2Z instructors will be available to cover weekly lessons in a manual or automatic car, or to arrange a “Crash” course, or a “Semi Intensive” course that could be spread over 2 or 3 weeks or more. Much of the lesson time will be spent driving through local routes, thus giving every pupil the confidence they need to learn the necessary driving skills in a way that best suits them.
