Learning to Drive in Pontefract

We have been offering driving lessons in Pontefract for many years now. Learn Driving UK is very pleased to be able to offer quality driving lessons to our customers. Pontefract is steeped in history and an iconic place to live, work, relax and learn to drive.

Your Driving Lessons in Pontefract

If you are new to driving lessons in Pontefract, we start you off in nursery areas like Chequerfield and airedale. In Featherstone you will drive around the Green Lane industrial estate and Normanton.You will advance, at a rate which suits you, into more complex areas such as busy junctions. Normanton bypass is great for learning about roundabouts. You will also drive around South Elmsall, Kirkby Langthwaite Grange Industrial Estates.

For those with some experience or who already hold a licence to drive, we start off with an assessment of your skills so that we can tailor a course of lessons suited to your needs.

Many new starters are concerned about the manoeuvre exercises involving reversing. You will only be asked to carry out one of them on your driving test and, by then, you’ll have them mastered.

Towards the end of your driving lessons in Pontefract, you will experience more tricky junctions (traffic lights, one-way systems) and busier roundabouts such as Hemsworth bypass. We will carry out regular assessments to check your progress and allow you to drive for longer periods independently. But don’t worry - we don’t expect you to run before you can walk. Your Learn Driving UK instructor will be with you all the way offering expert tuition and guidance when required.

Pontefract Driving Test Centre

Waiting times for practical driving tests at the Pontefract test centre (Baghill Station Station Lane, Pontefract, West Yorkshire, WF8 1RB) can be a couple of months depending on the time of year. So, don’t be surprised if your driving instructor is pushing you a little to prepare for, and take, your theory test in Pontefract (you can only apply for a driving test once the theory test has been passed).

Although our LDUK instructors know all the driving test routes they will not be restricting your driving lessons in Pontefract to those roads. We strongly believe in DVSA’s “safe driving for life” slogan and will be ensuring you get practice on as wide a range of roads and junctions as possible.

If you live in Pontefract or any nearby villages be reassured that Learn Driving UK will endeavour to provide you with the best possible service, value for money and our commitment to your driving safety, at-all-times.

With calm, patient and highly trained instructors Learn Driving UK is looking forward to helping you achieve your driving goals.

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.

I chose Learn Driving UK as they had good feedback, comments, reviews and ratings on the internet and on social media (word of mouth is more trustworthy). It was important to me that the school and driving instructor had a good reputation and were mature and competent and friendly. Learning to drive was easier and not as nerve wracking as i expected it to be and got easier with practice. Barry's teaching methods were fantastic! Barry was calm at all, times, gave clear instructions and explanations and practised everything over and over again until i knew i could do it. Barry was a brilliant confidence builder. I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a calm, polite and knowledgeable instructor, who gives you confidence in your own ability and doesn't make you feel nervous. Barry provided a brilliant learning experience. Nothing could be improved, Barry went above an beyond.

Price was important to me due to me paying for my lessons myself rather than parents paying for me. I wanted a driving instructor who was easy to understand. Learning to drive was much harder and more things to be aware of than i thought there would be. Barry Woodward's teaching methods were easy to follow and clear. He helped me pass first time. I was always given clear instruction.

I was the last one of the triplets so i needed someone who would pick me and my brothers up from same house at different times. I wanted someone friendly and who had good reviews. Learning to drive was a lot easier than I thought it would be. Barry's teaching methods were really impressive, he made me confident and want to have a lesson every week. I would highly recommend Barry and already have. Everything was what I wanted.

Barry was highly recommended to me. I found it difficult to learn new things at first. Barry was very good, very friendly and makes you feel at ease.

amy wilson pontefract

I wanted an instructor who was patient. The cost and personality of the instructor was very important. Learning to drive took longer than expected due to my own lack of confidence. Barry was excellent, very calming and lessons were straightforward. I would highly recommend Barry, I felt completely at ease.
