Chatham is one of the Medway towns in Kent, situated in the Medway unitary authority. The town originally developed around the army barracks and Chatham dockyard, which closed down in 1984. There is an inner ring road running through the town centre, and a flyover opened in 1989 to carry traffic over the high street.
"I am feeling much more confident with my driving and feel more comfortable on the roads, especially when it comes to changing gears. I have faced challenges with this experience and through these I have learnt a lot, such as different manoeuvres, parking and making correct use of signalling and using the satnav. I have enjoyed these lessons, the patience of my instructor, the manageable lesson time length and the variation of routes we take. I also liked the ability in which I could choose an area of driving to focus on to suit my needs and preferences."
