Driving in West London and the Congestion Charge zone
When driving in and around London, it’s important to be aware of the Congestion Charge. While this is in the most central parts of the city, driving instructors in West London should remember to not venture too far east, or risk paying the £15 daily charge.
The most westerly points of the Congestion Charge zone are Marylebone and Mayfair, with the famous Park Lane on the outskirts of Hyde Park signifying the boundary.
What areas are best for driving in West London?
For a learner driver, it’s a good idea to start in areas that are a lot more accommodating to those at the beginning of their driving journey. The following areas are considered to be great for a first driver due to factors such as quieter roads, fewer road traffic accidents and not as many complex junctions.
The roads around Maida Hill are in a quiet and reserved area, making it easier for drivers to concentrate on the matter at hand without becoming distracted by other traffic. You’ll also find that these roads are wide, giving you plenty of room to practise and get used to the size and positioning of your car.
Another quiet, residential space, Willesden Green can be a great spot for learning how to park and manoeuvre around other cars along the street. Dobree Avenue and Bryan Avenue are also fantastic areas to get some crossroad practice under your belt!
You’ll feel like a movie star driving around this area! This quiet, residential area offers lots of room to practise various manoeuvres from parking and reversing to three-point-turns. If you fancy a chance at exploring more of the neighbourhood, Clarendon Road, Elgin Crescent, Kensington Park Gardens and Linden Gardens are great areas to drive round safely.
