I am certain there were a few postings on here regarding driving lessons and some recommendations, but I can't seem to find them now!

Cany anyone recommend a reliable driving school in SE1? Or you could offer to teach me yourself! lol!

I thoroughly recommend Metropolis, under the arches at Vauxhall.

You'll find that they tend to use "half-cars", but apart from them having two wheels the only other differences from a more conventional car are:

- no congestion charge
- huge reduction in emissions
- you actually MOVE through London traffic
- it's frighteningly cheap to own, tax, service, and run a "half-car"
- the test (CBT) only takes a day
- there's free parking all over central London
- you won't find that you've just spent a horrendous amount of money on a carpy-looking tin box that looks just like all the other carpy tin boxes on the road

The only disadvantage is having to find something other than one's car to rely on when one has moments of crisis about size of one's zi-zi (thanks whoever it was who gave me this phrase on the forum recently - ??maurits perhaps??)

...there's plenty more c**** in the cup.

Thanks Ivanhoe - I will take a look at that, but I'm not sure about "half-cars" especially if they can't be relied upon in a moment of zi-zi crisis! Although the thought of moving through London is quite exciting!


May get that Bentley afterall...
