The South Woodford to Barking relief road (part of the northern Circular A406 route) runs through the Roding valley, with access to the town center via its junction with the A124.

The city center has a large shopping center 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.

When you book your last-minute intensive driving lessons, you will have the choice of learning in an automatic or a manual car. Last year alone, there were over 1.7 million driving tests conducted. Out of these, only about 30% were taken in an automatic car.

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.
