The local railway stations are: Kingston, Surbiton and Norbiton. A river boat service operates from Kingston Bridge to Hampton Court & Richmond during the summer seasons and a direct link goes from Hampton Court to Putney & Westminster.

Intensive Driving Courses

Maybe you have tried learning to drive in a manual car but can’t or don’t have the time to master the clutch control? Then automatic driving lessons Kingston could be for you. It usually takes fewer lessons to pass the test in an automatic car, mainly because the car changes the gears for you so you can ?concentrate on what’s happening outside the car! It’s not everyone’s choice as you will be limited to an automatic driving license which prevents you from driving a manual car without taking another test. Autos have become very popular, the choice of cars is good and the prices are reasonable too. If ?you want to find out more about learning to drive in an automatic call us on 07956 442080, if we don’t know the answer we will phone a friend!
