Enfield is a great place to learn, despite the test centre being on a busy industrial estate near the M25! If you’re new to the driver’s seat there are plenty of quieter residential streets in and around North London, such as the side streets in Bush Hill Park and Palmers Hill. The residential streets surrounding Enfield are also a good place for polishing off your manoeuvres, providing a safe location to practise reversing around a corner, parallel parking, and three-point turns.
Driving in Enfield can be challenging but rewarding, with heavy traffic during rush hour. As well as the busy North Circular Road, there’s the A10 and the A103, which, if you can master them, will stand you in good stead for any dual carriageways that might come up in your test. The A10 and the A103 can provide further dual carriageway experience, and they’ll certainly be well used once you’ve passed your test. You can use them to move out towards the M1 and the north of England, or back into the centre of London towards Wembley.
Enfield is a great mix of the urban and the suburban, meaning there’s more than just busy roads and dual carriageways. You can also experience driving on the quiet, winding roads leading up towards St Albans, Hemel Hempstead and Potters Bar in Hertfordshire. This great combination of driving opportunities in and around Enfield will prepare you well for post-test life.
