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.

Our driving test pass rate in Pontefract is high as our driving instructors in Pontefract know the area well and recognise the standard required for a driving test pass. You can be sure of a professional, local service at very competitive prices.

The prospect of learning to drive in Pontefract can be quite unnerving but don’t worry, your Learn Driving UK Instructor will be CRB checked for your safety, experienced and trained to a very high standard. Learn Driving UK instructors conform to the Industry Code of Practice so you will be in safe hands.

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 in 2017.

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.

Someone who I knew and was patient and understanding, I knew Barry was both of these as people I know used him. learning to drive the second time around was very much more enjoyable and I looked forward to my lessons. Barry's methods were fantastic, especially since having bad experience with another instructor. I would definitely recommend him. I wouldn't chance anything I have no complaints.

Availability and a calm instructor were important to me when i was looking for a driving instructor. The type and feel of  the car was important too. My driving test was very nerve racking, but my driving lessons were fun. Barry was very helpful calm and constructive. I would highly recommend Barry and Learn Driving UK because I passed first time with this company, failed twice with another. There's nothing i would change, Helen found me an instructor quickly.
