Manual or Automatic Intensive Driving Lessons

It’s easier to pass your driving test in a week by taking an automatic car compared to a manual. This is because you don’t have the extra task of changing gears, especially on approach to junctions such as roundabouts. This, in turn, means that you will have more time to focus on the speed and observations on the approach to such junctions. Once you’ve passed your driving test in an automatic, you will be restricted to driving only automatics. However, you are most welcome to upgrade to a manual license by retaking and passing another test.

Barking is a small city in the east of London. The town is situated just north of the A13 and just east of the River Roding. The South Woodford to Barking relief road (part of the northern Circular A406 route) runs through the Roding valley, with access to the town centre via its junction with the A124.

Barking was initially part of Essex, but because of the building of the larger Becontree estate by the London County Council in 1926, is now part of East London. The city centre has a large shopping centre and business area, and the southern part of the city has been rebuilt as Barking Riverside. The Barking Test Centre is located at 84 Tanner Street, IG11 8QF.

Local roads that you might encounter during the course of the test may include the dual carriageways of the A12 and A13, the north Circular of the A406 and the A124 Longbridge Road. These may be relatively quick routes, so your speed will be assessed on them. You will also likely encounter a one-way system, a rotary, roundabouts, and the occasional minor bridge crossing. As there is no parking at the center, you will have to park in surrounding streets and perform the maneuvers in the local residential streets.
