London and Manchester feeling 'most nervous' about driving now

Drivers in London and Manchester have been searching for the best driving advice more than other motorists across the UK, a study has revealed.

The research by True Solicitors may suggest motorists in these cities are more nervous about getting back on the road after lockdown.

Roads have been hardly used since the pandemic took hold in March after we were told to only make essential journeys.

And it means many people have not ventured back behind the wheel for around four months.

It can be daunting to get back on the road after a long period, particularly during peak times and rush hour periods.

And it seems some areas are feeling it more than most.

Which UK city appears to need the most help with their driving?

True Solicitors said: ” We have dug deeper to analyse the driving habits of British drivers, discovering which UK cities are searching the most for ‘driving tips’ – suggesting motorists from the below cities may be nervous about getting back on the road.”



The highest number of searches for ‘driving tips’ (by ratio of population) is from motorists in Manchester, with London, surprisingly, in second. There have been reports in the past of people turning down jobs to avoid congestion in Manchester, which could be behind the increase in searches.

London also has a reputation as one of the worst cities for driving in the country, so it is to be expected that the second highest number of searches for ‘driving tips’ is from the capital.

The lowest number of searches for ‘driving tips’ is in Coventry, suggesting that motorists in the city are more prepared for getting back onto the road as the rules change on driving.

In total, however, there has been a 71% decrease in the number of people searching for ‘driving tips’ in the UK, due to the lockdown rules on travelling. But we are likely to see an increase as more cars head onto the road.
