    Curious what people think. In terms of type I mean for instance city centre, rural, suburbs etc.

    City centre's tend to be busier, hence people usually feel more pressured and less confident. Especially at busy city roundabouts and junctions. Suburbs and rural areas are easier however if rural areas have lesser developed roads (e.g country lanes) you have to be more careful.

    Personally, I feel that country roads (B roads) are the hardest to drive on, at least where I live
    No verges, narrow lanes, sharp bends can easily catch you out if you're not paying attention.
    Sharp deviation signs are the bane of my life tbh, sometimes its on a corner that can comfortably be taken at 50mph, sometimes its for a corner that you need to slow right down to 30 for

    Probably city centres and *****y country B or D roads. Each is difficult for a different reason.

    City centres (especially ancient ones) with tiny crossroads that are always ram packed w/ poor visibility instead of roundabouts are extremely difficult for me, especially because I did my driving tuition in a new town where roundabouts are more common making things a lot easier.
