Your Driving Lessons in Leeds
At LDUK we start you off in “nursery areas” on quiet housing estates close to where you live. We move on to busier junctions, roundabouts, traffic lights, dual carriageways and rural roads at a pace which suits you. Expect to carry out a reverse manoeuvre exercise and possibly an emergency stop (1 in 3 tests only) on the test, which lasts around 35 – 40 minutes.
Whatever level of driver you are, your LDUK instructor will start your lessons in an area in which you can cope with the traffic conditions. There are dozens of residential estates in Leeds where your early lessons can begin. You will practice in both urban and rural areas and a variety of road types: single and dual carriageways, country lanes, one-way streets, and the Leeds inner and outer ring roads.
Driving Test Centres In Leeds
Thankfully, neither of the test centres has routes incorporating the Leeds city centre. However, both are close to very busy and complex dual carriageways which you must feel confident on prior to taking the driving test.
Horsforth Test Centre: Woodside House, 261 Low Lane, Horsforth, Leeds, LS18 5NY
Situated in Northwest Leeds, Horsforth test centre is on a busy street within 400 metres of the Leeds Ring Road (A6120). The Ring Road splits the area in two. To the North, test routes incorporate the A660 Otley/Skipton road using areas of Lawnswood, Bramhope and Tinshill. The A658 (Bradford/Leeds road) is also popular in the areas of Leeds/Bradford Airport, Rawdon and Calverley.
To the South of the Ring Road, experience of the A65 towards Kirkstall, Burley and Headingley areas is vital.
Test candidates should park on Low Lane on test day as there is no car park. The Centre has wheelchair access and male, female and accessible toilet facilities.
Harehills Test Centre: Hillcrest House, 386 Harehills Lane, Leeds, LS9 6NF

Excellent driving test pass for Taya in Leeds with Simon Hills of Learn Driving UK
Excellent driving test pass with Simon Hills in Horsforth
I passed first time with Simon. I can't thank Simon enough for all the work he put in to help me pass. Thank you very much Simon
I passed second time I got in touch with Simon because I'd done almost 60 hours with my previous driving instructor and I failed my driving test. A friend recommended Simon to me. He said 10 hours max, can’t believe he was dead right & I’ve passed. I’m sure I would’ve passed much earlier if I'd had Simon. His teaching seemed so much better. I’m not going to name the other instructor.
I passed first time with Simon. Simon was recommended by my brother who also passed first time. I’ve been with another instructor which didn't workout. I felt so much better and learned much better when I moved to Simon. So my brother was right. I will be recommending Simon to all my friends. Thank you so much Simon
So happy I managed to beat my sister but you also taught her to pass first time. Simon is a very approachable and easy-going driving instructor who gives good constructive criticism to help you progress. His lessons are well planned and he is very flexible with pick ups and dropping me off at different times.
Simon is definitely worth a five star. I can’t believe I’m now going to university and I’ve passed my test. That was the goal we set out to achieve. Still can’t believe I’ve done it. Thank you very much Simon
The nature of my instructor was important to me when learning to driving. I moved from a previous company and then I found Tim who's manor really suited me. There were a few things I found difficult but Tim was a really big help. Definitely recommend Learn Driving UK.'
I went through 4 instructors before finding Learn Driving UK and I have to say, they are the best. Tim was patient, very clear and understandable. Lesson times were flexible, which was great for me. Very happy pupil.'
So glad I went with Learn Driving UK. The reviews are spot on. I will definitely be recommending them to everyone as i passed first time.
Its not often that your examiner tells you that was a very nice drive. Big thank you to Simon for helping me get a first time pass. I had a couple of instructors before I came to learn Driving UK I can't believe the difference.... Excellent company and i will definitely be recommending them.'
Simon is a fantastic teacher. He has helped me achieve my goal of passing my driving test. After being let down by another instructor, Simon has restored my confidence and he has taught me all the knowledgeable skills of safe driving. Thank you for believing in me
It was important to me that I found a driving school with good experience, great reviews and flexibility. Learn Driving UK ticked all the boxes. Tim Warrington was really good, laid back and calm. I will definitely be recommending them
Availability and reviews on the internet were important to me when i was looking for a driving instructor. I needed a driving instructor who was flexible. Tim Warringtons teaching methods exceeded my expectations and i passed my driving test at the first attempt. Tim was calm, collected and fair. I am very pleased. I would highly recommend Tim. He has an overall great approach to driving lessons and makes sure that he satisfy's the personal needs of the student. Everything was perfect in my opinion.
It was important to me that i had a driving instructor that i got along with and was a good teacher. The location of the lessons and timings were important to me too. Learning to drive was harder and longer than i expected it to be, but i passed my driving test first time. Tim Warrington's teaching methods were clear to understand and i didn't feel under any pressure. Money well spent and passed first time. Everything worked just fine.
Can not recommend Simon enough. After an experience with previous instructor knocking my confidence in driving, Simon immediately made me feel at ease within minutes of meeting him. Despite my low confidence I passed first time with 0 minors! He is very patient and knowledgeable and taught me all the necessary skills to drive safely and effectively whilst making me feel like a competent driver. I would recommend Simon to everyone who has been let down before or who are anxious about driving but also for those driving first time - I can ensure you you won't have to change your instructor again. My wholehearted thanks to Simon for his help and patience, Leena
