You need to remain in the left hand lane/ Lane 1 all the time unless you are overtaking another car. If you drive in the central zone while in London, you must pay the congestion charge. The central zone is identified by road markings and signs showing a white ‘C’ on a red background. Please get informed about recent law changes by the Manchester department or motor vehicles.
