Learning to drive in West London

If you’re just starting out driving in West London, don’t be intimidated by the prospect of heavy traffic and busy roundabouts. Chiswick, Ealing and Shepherd’s Bush are just a few good places to practise driving in West London, with a mixture of quiet residential streets for beginners and more difficult narrow roads lined with parked cars.

When you’re gaining in experience, there are plenty of opportunities to get some practice on dual carriageways with large roundabouts in the area. The A220 with the Shepherd’s Bush roundabout, the A40 with the Westway roundabout and the Hammersmith flyover connecting the A4 and A219 at Tesco’s roundabout are just a few examples if you’re after a challenge.

Of course, West London also has its fair share of busy areas in the centre of the city, including Paddington, Marylebone, Mayfair and Oxford Street. These areas are certain to put you hazard perception and junction skills to the test, but make sure you check whether you need to pay the Congestion Charge before you take a spin.

If you’re all practised out, don’t forget to spend some time researching your local driving test centres and brushing up on some top tips for passing the driving test in West London.

Manual and automatic driving lessons

We get that everyone’s different, so we offer a choice of manual and automatic driving lessons in West London.

Take your time when deciding whether to learn in a manual or automatic car. It might be easier to drive an automatic car in West London, as not having to worry about gear changes when driving in slow and heavy traffic leaves you freer to watch out for road signs and other road users. This is particularly the case when driving in the W1 area leading towards the city centre!

Remember though that by qualifying with an automatic driving licence you won’t be able to drive a manual car, whereas a manual licence will qualify you to drive either. Lessons in an automatic also tend to be more costly.

Driving test centre locations

It’s important to get some practice around your chosen driving test centre before the big day. You’ll learn how to deal with any trickier spots that could come up in your test, and hopefully that will help you to calm those butterflies! There aren’t any test centres in the West London postcode area, so it’s likely you’ll have to travel a little to reach one. Have a look at the DVSA test centres page. Your nearest centres are:

  • Hendon: 3 Aviation Drive, Beaufort Park, Hendon, Greater London, NW9 5TZ
  • Isleworth: Unit 8, The Wireless Factory, Fleming Way, Isleworth, TW7 6DB
  • Southall: 295 Allenby Road, Southall, Greater London, UB1 2HD
