Driving Lessons in Romford

Learning to drive in Romford

Learning to drive is a big step in your life, so you want to do it in the right place. If you’re looking to learn in Romford, you’re lucky - it’s got everything you need to become a safe and confident driver.

Romford can get pretty busy, especially during peak times, so it’s handy to know where to head for some quiet practice as a learner driver. Look to residential streets without too many cars parked along the sides. If you’re stuck, we suggest heading to Lincoln Avenue to perfect those trickier manoeuvres. Alternatively, check out Kingshill Avenue. It’s wide and relatively peaceful, a bit further out from the busy heart of Romford. There are plenty of inclined roads around it as well in case you want to practise hill starts.

If you’re looking for country roads, you can take the B175 out past Bournebridge, or turn onto Murthering Lane. It’s a narrow, winding road, with tight corners and often limited vision round the corners. This makes it a good test of speed control and hazard perception.

If you’re after a challenge, the centre of Romford is the place to explore. The town centre is encircled by a complex dual carriage ring road featuring speed cameras, pedestrian crossings, junctions, cycle lanes, and much more. Romford isn’t far from the M25 either, so providing you are with your instructor, or you have already passed your test, you can experience driving at high speed as well. With a bit of practice you’ll be doing great!


Manual and automatic driving lessons

Take your pick from manual or automatic driving lessons in Romford

With a manual driving licence you can drive both automatic and manual cars. On the other hand, with an automatic driving licence you can only drive automatic cars - but of course there’s less to get your head around!

If you think you’ll be driving through Romford’s rush hour you might want to consider an automatic. Doing away with the clutch means it’s much easier to crawl along with slow traffic. However, a manual car tends to be cheaper than an automatic equivalent, so you’ll want to factor that in as well. There are pros and cons for both, so make sure you take your time making your choice.
