Learning to drive in Ilford

With a mixture of quiet suburban areas and busy city streets, Ilford has all the variety you need to get practising for your practical driving test.

The residential roads round Ilford can be tricky to navigate because of the high volume of parked cars on both sides of the road. But if you’re looking for somewhere with enough space to perfect that three-point turn, we’d recommend heading towards Cranbrook and the streets around St George’s Road. If you can, aim to practise at daytimes on weekdays when you’re starting out, as this is likely to be when these lanes are at their most peaceful.

Manual and automatic driving lessons

Whether you’re after manual or automatic lessons in Ilford, we’ve got your back!

Deciding which type of driving lessons to take can be tricky. On the one hand, there’s less to get your head around if you’re learning to drive an automatic car, but on the other this would only enable you to drive automatic vehicles once you pass, whereas a manual licence would qualify you for both. Make sure that you think carefully about what the best option is for you before you start to learn.

I've had a fantastic experience with Midrive, very efficient way of connecting instructors to students, I also find the tracking of the lessons very valuable.
