Learning to drive in London

Confidence is key when driving in London, especially in the city centre of London. It can feel overwhelming at first with so much road and foot traffic, but don’t let it get you flustered. Instead, try to stay calm and focus on the traffic immediately around you. Remember you’ve got this!

London is infamous for heavy traffic, so make sure to avoid booking a driving lesson during rush hour if you can. Rush hour is between 7:00am - 9:00am and 4:30pm - 7:00pm. Busses pulling out unexpectedly, car horns blaring loudly.

There is a congestion charge which is a tax that all vehicles must pay when they travel through central London on weekdays during certain hours of the day. We advise to check your zone and pay beforehand when you’re out driving in between your lessons.

Make sure to have a lesson on some of the motorways or dual carriageways in and around London, to learn driving at higher speeds. The M25 ring road outside of London allows you to easily get to different areas of the capital. The start point of the M1 is the junction at Brent Cross and the M11 is accessed at the Woodford junction roundabout.

The good news is that the average speed on London roads is very slow due to the sheer number of cars. Take advantage of this because it will give you a little extra time to spot driving hazards ahead. Make sure you’ve planned your practice route around the Congestion Charge, remember you won’t need to pay this during the weekends and evenings.

Multiple cars

Manual and automatic driving lessons

We know that Londoners love choice, that’s why we offer both manual and automatic driving lessons. We’ve got your back.

Make sure you’re happy with the type of transmission you want to learn to drive before booking your first lesson. We have both manual and automatic driving instructors based across London for you.

If you are planning on mainly driving in London once you pass your driving test, learning in an automatic car might be a good choice for you. There will be slightly less to remember compared to a manual and less need to change gears when driving in heavy, slow moving traffic which is prevalent in London.

While this may work for some, others might prefer the extra challenge and freedom of learning in a manual car, because you can drive either a manual or automatic car once you pass your test.
