Successful Pupils who passed the Driving Test in North London – N1 Area

Top 10 Tips for Learning in N1 Islington

Where is the best quietest place to start your lessons from? 

From the N1 London postcode if you have never or done very little driving the best place to start your lessons would be around Arlington Square. It’s a very quiet area and as you progress then driving around Islington is not too difficult.

What are the speed limits on the roads? 

Most of the roads are limited to 20 mph but there are some, but not many 30 mph.

Are there many big or small roundabouts in my area? 

There are a few small roundabouts and the closest larger roundabout is the Old Street Roundabout which is traffic light controlled.

Are there any dual carriageways? 

In the Islington N1 area there are no dual carriageways.

What are the best times during the day to do your driving lessons? 

The roads can get quite busy for the rush hours so it’s best to avoid lessons at those times unless you are going in the opposite direction to the traffic, ie down the Holloway Road or towards Finsbury Park direction.

Are there any busy/difficult/unusual junctions?  

There are no unusual junctions as such but it can get very busy around Angel Tube Station and there is a busy one way stretch of road heading towards Kings Cross.

Are there any places to practice bay parking?  

Very limited places to practice bay parking but most people tend to use housing estates where you will find some places to practice.

Where are my nearest theory test centres?

Your nearest theory test centres are London Bridge (Southwark), Southgate and Mile End (Limehouse)

Where are my local practical test centres?
Wood Green, Tottenham, Hendon and Mill Hill.  A few miles further away you also have Barnet and Borehamwood test centres.

Which is the easiest test centre to do your practical driving test in my area?
There are no easy or hard test centres, some instructors prefer some test centres over others. The roads are busier around Wood Green and TottenhamMill Hill and Hendon have more dual carriageways on their test routes.
