Before learning to drive or take intensive driving courses Glasgow, make sure you have the lowdown on what it is like to drive in and around Glasgow. This article will explain the best times to drive around the centre, fill you in on which lanes to avoid and give some advice on learning to drive in Glasgow.
It might seem obvious that the weekdays in Glasgow might be quieter, but make sure you know that Monday through Friday you will be faced with heavy traffic from 5am until 9am and then it quietens down more after that. The places to avoid if you are a nervous driver mid-week include the Woodlands area in the West End and Cowcaddens in the city centre.
On Fridays and Saturdays, the weekend has begun. Knowing that, it’s probably best to avoid places like Bath Street and Sauchiehall street between 11pm and 4am.
Sundays are often the quietest day of the week, and this is reflected in the traffic. Early evening and night will more than likely be the busiest as everyone gets home in time to refresh before Monday comes around again.
Glasgow is quite complicated when it comes to bus lanes and it doesn’t hurt to research which ones you may come across before heading out into the city centre. One bus lane on Glassford Street, near Trongate is particularly infamous so be careful driving in this area.
If you are going to be driving in Glasgow, it is probably best to take your lessons in the city centre as you will be spending a lot of time on these roads. However, make sure you spend some time in your lessons covering the suburbs and surrounding areas as it will be easier to practice manoeuvres and roundabouts outside of the city centre radius. If you want to learn everything as fast as possible, have done your research and want to hit the city centre roads asap, you may want to look at intensive driving courses Glasgow.
Whether you need to learn fast by a deadline, for example a new job, or whether you are just eager to drive as soon as possible, an intensive driving course in Glasgow might be right for you. A company like All Pass Driving could help you, as they have flexible arrangements and you could even complete your driving lessons alongside your best friend or a family member. The benefit of course is that you could be a qualified driver in 1-4 weeks!
As always, make sure to do your research before learning to drive and make sure you pick the course that is right for you!
