When it comes to places to practise driving in North London, the area has all aspects covered! North London has a great variety of residential roads for beginner learners to take a spin on, as well as plenty of more challenging A roads for experienced learners to discover. The A503 and Highgate Road towards Camden Town, and the A1200 towards Canonbury are just a few.
If you’re still getting used to life behind the wheel, Tufnell Park and Islington are good places to start. Full of peaceful, tree-lined streets, there are lots of spots to practise parallel parking and three-point turns.
Try to avoid heading out in the car during rush hour, particularly when you’re starting out. Aside from anything else, getting stuck in traffic can take up valuable practice time! Archway Road, the A10 towards Stoke Newington and the A503 towards South Tottenham are key routes into the city centre and can get especially clogged up. It also pays to stay clear of the Congestion Charge zone to avoid forking out for the fees.
When you’re getting confident on the road, it’s time to get some practice in the areas where the test centres are based, such as Tottenham and Wood Green.

It’s advisable to spend some time thinking about which type of driving lessons you’d like to take before booking a driving lesson with a North London based Midrive driving instructor.
North London has a lot of slow moving traffic and some people might find it easier to negotiate this by driving in an automatic car. This is because compared to a manual car, the gear changes will be taken care of and there will be slightly less to remember.
However, with an automatic licence you’ll only be qualified to drive an automatic car. A manual licence offers more flexibility as it qualifies you to drive either type of vehicle, and on top of this lessons are cheaper!
There is a variety of driving test centres to choose from in North London. We advise spending some time going over the likely test routes in the lead up to your practical driving test. This way you’ll become familiar with the area and get prepared for what could come your way during the test.
