Newcastle is a great place to learn to drive, Here are just a few of our favorite spots
With the Belmont back streets being the lions share of the Belmont driving test this is a great place to get some driving lessons done. Not the best spot for absolute beginners though with lots of busy intersections that may very well sneak up on you! Great for reverse parks and 3-point-turns.
With an RTA in Warners Bay that you may very well go to for your test, these streets near the lake make for an ideal place for beginner driving lesson and pros alike. Just to the south of Warners Bay High is a great place for your fisrt drives. Myles Ave and East St run parallel to each other and share 5 or 6 cross streets. Zig-zagging through these streets is great for practising steering techniques. For the more experienced learners there are also many busy roundabouts and traffic lights too!
Wide streets, plenty of parked cars for reverse parks, no confusing traffic situations, Swansea is perfect for first driving lessons.
If you've already done a few driving lessons & you're confident with a little more traffic, Bar Beach is great. There's plenty of spots for reverse parks & 3-point-turns, some great windy roads for steering & a few decent hills for kerb-side-stops/hillstarts.
Great for first driving lessons. Blacksmiths is flat, simple & quiet. There's a few streets in the northern section that have no gutters at all making them great for practising new steering techniques with no worries of running off the road into the gutter.
If you're past the initial learning stage and looking for a bit more of a challenge, Redhead is the place for driving lessons. Fairly quiet streets make for a safe place to venture out of your comfort zone of the flat streets you're used to. The hills provide the opportunity to learn the dangers of crests.
Hills, 4-way stop signs, narrow streets, wide streets, one way streets, Lambton has plenty of challenges for you to overcome in a relatively quiet setting (depending on the time of day)
