Course for Non UK driver’s to build confidence
Even if you are a tourist or not planning for a long stay in London, a short driving course will give you familiarity and confidence with driving with the same sense and manners as British drivers. After the driving course you’ll definitely feel better and more confident regarding driving on left, complex junctions, roundabouts, traffic, bus lanes, road signs, cycle lanes, UK driving etiquette, acceptable maneuvres and knowing all about parking.
If you are a driver from the EU (European Union) and the (EEA) European Economic Area you are fully licensed to drive in UK. All that Non UK Drivers will require to do is exchange their licence with a UK driving licence if you are planning on driving in the UK for more than a year (12 months).
After the deadline, you would need a provisional license of driving, which would enable you to drive while accompanied by an already UK licenced driver.
