MORE TIPS FOR DRIVING IN ENGLAND

- Read the Highway Code before leaving, so you are up-to-date on driving laws in the United Kingdom, which vary slightly from American laws. You can read the Code for free online at www.gov.uk/browse/driving/highway-code-road-safety.

- Be vigilant at all times while driving. In England, cars drive on the left side of the road, with the steering wheel on the right side of the car. As you become more comfortable with driving in England, you may be more tempted to let your guard down. It`s at these times when you can cause an accident, either with another car or on your own, being unfamiliar with right-side steering cars. Concentrate at all times, and if you are lost, exit the motorway and find a gas station or shop where you can receive directions.

- Direction signs on motorways have a blue backdrop and signs on trunk roads will have a green backdrop. Signs on local roads are white with a black border, and speed limit signs are typically white circular signs with a red perimeter. Speed limit signs are posted in miles per hour, not kilometers per hour.

- Be nice and courteous while on the road. Local drivers will be more forgiving of minor faux pas if you have a cheerful attitude.
