Driving Lessons in Croydon

Learning to drive in Croydon

It can be difficult to know where to practice your driving in Croydon, particularly when you’re starting out. It’s a pretty congested area, and the high number of parked cars makes even residential areas narrow and tricky to navigate. Don’t worry though, learning in these conditions will prepare you for any urban area after you’ve passed!

Until you’ve reached that stage, it’s a good idea to practise on some roads that are better suited to learners. Hillcrest Road is a good option if you’re looking to perfect a three-point turn, while Croham Valley Road is a good choice for getting to grips with slight hill starts.

Our instructors will help you navigate the trickier parts of Croydon, like the Croydon Flyover, or where the A236 becomes a roundabout beneath it. Against the national average pass rate of 47.5%, only 38.7% of learner drivers passed their test in Croydon between April and September 2017. We’re here to boost that stat!


Manual and automatic driving lessons

Take your pick from our manual or automatic driving lessons in Croydon.

We believe that when it comes to manual and automatic, there’s no "one size fits all”. While some might like the fact that there’s less to get your head around with automatic, others might prefer the freedom of a manual licence, which qualifies you to drive either type of vehicle once you pass. Make sure you think carefully about both options before you make your choice.

Driving test centre locations

It’s best to do lots of practice around your test centre location, so that you’re familiar with the area. Don’t worry, once your confidence on the road is building, your driving instructor will make sure you’re learning the right routes for your practical driving test. Check out the DVSA driving test centres page to find your nearest!
