Here are some of tips for learning to drive in Liverpool.

1. Head through the Kingsway or Queensway Tunnels.

Driving through tunnels feels a lot different to an open road, due to the it having sides. Even a bridge with walls doesn't compare. Give tunnel driving a go. Many drivers can go through life without every driving through a proper tunnel. It's a really unique experience!

2. Know your driving test centre.

The Liverpool area Driving Test Centres are: Chester, Norris Green, Speke, Southport, St Helens, Upton, Warrington, Wallasey and Widnes.

What's closest to you? Try driving around the various roads near the centre, but try to go later in the day, so as not to be a burden to other motorists sitting their test.

3. Drive the M62 or M57.

Since learners can now drive on motorways with their driving instructor - you can try getting on to the M62 or M57 and practice driving to somewhere like Warrington or Wigan and back. Gaining confidence on busy, large roads is key to becoming a great driver.
