Congratulations to Paul on passing your practical test with the help of Musaffar from Intensive Courses

Congratulations to Paul on passing your practical test with the help of Musaffar from Intensive Courses

I passed my driving test on Wednesday with just two minors. So I just wanted to email to say that Musaffar was a really excellent driving instructor. I enjoyed literally every minute I was in the car with him, and he was the exact instructor I needed, with the right level of patience and an awareness of how best to explain to me where I was going wrong. He knew when I could be pushed to new driving experiences when I myself had no idea, and he always made me feel safe and kept his head on the odd occasion that I didn’t! So thanks very much to him and your team for giving me my much-belated licence. The entire course was a pleasure.

Intensive Courses will guide you through your intensive driving course from your very first lesson to passing your driving test. Your driving lessons will be built around you.

Top 10 Tips for learning in N5 Highbury and Islington


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

The best place to practice in London is around Arlington Square, there are lots of wide roads where most of the other cars are learner drivers. You can get up to third gear and practice lefts and right turns.

What are the speed limits on the roads?

There are mostly 20 mph on the side roads and the larger roads are mostly 30 mph. There are no roads in the area that go above 30 mph.

Are there many big or small roundabouts in my area?

Very few roundabouts in the area but if you’re looking to practice roundabouts I would suggest heading up towards Highbury and Islington roundabout, it’s a small roundabout but can get busy with traffic heading towards Holloway. For Larger roundabouts then heading down to Old Street roundabout. Bear in mind that you are on the edge of the congestion zone.

Are there any dual carriageways?

The A1 going to to Holloway heading out of town, heading towards East London you have the A12 going towards Wanstead.

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

It gets busy around rush hour times but if you go in the opposite direction to the traffic you should still be able to get a lot of driving done. In the mornings it’s busy heading into Central London and in the evening it’s busy heading out from London.

Are there any busy/difficult/unusual junctions?

Most of the main roads get busy, none of the roads in the area are difficult. Keep a check on the bus lane times as by entering them when your not supposed to will land you with a fine.

Are there any places to practice bay parking?

There are not many places to practice except in housing estates.

Which are my nearest theory test centres?

The nearest theory test centres are Southgate, Mile End which has 3 centres A , B and C, Then there is London Bridge theory test centre.

Where is my local practical test centre?

There are 7 DVSA practical test centres not too far away, Tottenham, Wood Green, Chingford, Mill Hill, Hendon, Barnet and Borehamwood.

Which is the easiest test centre to do your practical driving test in my area?All test centres are the same. If you’re not a fan of roundabouts then Wood Green and Tottenham have fewer roundabouts on the test routes but if you are going to do your test in either Wood Green or Tottenham make sure you practice the Great Cambridge Roundabout from all directions. In Hendon and Mill Hill test centres there is a good chance you will go onto the A41. Borehamwood test centre has lots of small roundabouts and Barnet has country roads to contend with. So don’t worry which test centre you get.
