Forest Hill is well connected with the South Circular running directly through and you can find the well-known, and much loved, Horniman Museum within the suburb of Forest Hill too.

Learning to drive can be a nerve-wracking experience. Some women are not comfortable with having a male instructor. We totally understand and this is why female driving instructors are available to our students. Our female driving instructors are very patient and friendly. They are always supportive and understanding to their students. Many female students find that they feel more relaxed and less pressured with a female instructor.
Automatic Driving Instructor in Forest Hill, SE23
Some of our students prefer automatic cars to manual. It is true that manual cars provide more control. However, automatic cars are certainly easier to drive, and can provide a more relaxing driving experience. Learning not to stall the car is a big stumbling block for beginners. The great thing with automatic cars is that they are impossible to stall. Also, because there is less to learn, students can make more rapid progress with automatic cars.
We recommend automatic cars to students who have problems with changing gear or using the clutch.
