Our tip when practising in Cricklewood and other residential streets is to watch out for cars parallel parked on both sides of the road, which is particularly bad at weekends. Driving on streets this busy can mean that there are more things to worry about, like children and animals running out in front of the car. So, keep your wits about you!

There are many steep hills in North West London, especially around Hampstead Heath so some people might find it easier learning in an automatic car when it comes to mastering those pesky hill starts. However automatic lessons are a bit more expensive compared to manual because there tend to be fewer teachers available on average.
Remember, once you qualify in an automatic car you will only be able to drive an automatic car, so some people prefer the flexibility of a manual driving licence.
It’s a good idea to practise driving around the local areas and likely test routes for your chosen driving test centre. Getting plenty of practice in now will give you a better margin for passing your test first time, as you’ll have mastered all the trickier parts of the area!
