Driving Routes in Bedford

All of our driving instructors in Bedford have expert knowledge of the area and will carefully choose which areas are best for you when completing your driving lessons.
If you are taking your first steps into the world of driving, to build up your skills and confidence, you may start your lessons on some of the more quiet roads in Putnoe, or around the Mile Road area of Bedford.

There are a number of excellent roads in Bedford and Kempston that are suitable for your first lessons, or, you may go out to the villages such as Clapham, Bromham, Cardington or Wootton to help you get used to the roads.

As your abilities develop, your instructor will continue to introduce you to new areas and will make sure you are comfortable and familiar with the test routes as you approach the end of your lessons. This will include some of the more difficult areas such as Cardington Cross roundabout or the one-way system around Bedford town centre.

Bedford Test Centre

Bedford test centre is now located just outside of Bedford, on the road between Shortstown and Cardington.

Due to its rural location, test routes include a mixture of both rural roads and urban roads.  Many test routes also using the A421 for some higher-speed driving.

Cardington Cross roundabout is almost guaranteed to feature in your test route, so this is somewhere your instructor will make sure you’ve had plenty of practice with during your driving lessons in Bedford.
