Before driving in the UK, it is important that you fulfil the legal requirements and are aware of the correct procedures.
Important legal requirements
You must have a licence that allows you to drive in Great Britain. For advice on this see the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA).
You must observe and abide by the Highway Code.
You must abide by the laws relating to licensing, insurance, vehicle roadworthiness, vehicle registration, and vehicle excise duty (tax). For information regarding these matters see the DVLA.
Anyone wishing to drive in central London on weekdays between 7am and 6.00pm must pay a daily congestion charge. This, together with the problems of parking in the city, means that driving in London is often an impractical option.
You can find out more detailed information from the UKCISA guidance for international students on driving in the UK.
And one more very obvious thing - we drive on the left in the United Kingdom!
