Launch of the UK’s first left-hand driving schoolBack

DrivingAbroadDo you dread getting driving abroad? Now you might not have to.

The UK’s first left-hand driving school has just been launched as survey reveals one quarter of Brits are too scared to get behind the wheel abroad.

The course, which will be held in Brixton, London will include familiarisation with foreign road signs and roundabouts in a bid to build the confidence of drivers who plan to take a road trip abroad.

Skyscanner, a global travel search site, has teamed up with driving instructors to offer free classes to travellers who are looking to gain some practice and advice before taking to the wheel abroad.

The move comes after research found that 27 per cent of Britons admitted to be afraid of driving on the opposite side of the road.

The survey of 1,084 adults also revealed that as high as 36 per cent of Brits don’t research the driving laws of individual countries before they travel abroad, with 24 per cent stating they would prefer their partners to drive.

Skyscanner’s Mary Porter said: ‘With two-thirds of the world’s countries driving on the right-hand side of the road we wanted to give British holidaymakers the confidence they need to drive overseas.

‘Rules and regulations vary from country to country so we’ve also published a guide to provide some clarity for drivers including top tips on driving on the opposite side of the road.

The new guide includes a list of the national speed limits for the UK’s most popular holiday destinations and also a list of unusual road signs they may come across – signs being one of the things drivers fear the most when driving abroad.

The guide also includes top tips on how to drive on the right as well as a list of some of the more unusual driving laws from across the globe.

Classes are due to run on Saturday 12th July in Brixton, London and you can apply for a class by visiting the Skyscanner website, www.skyscanner.net.
