Learning to Drive in Wakefield

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

Our driving test pass rate in Wakefield is high as our driving instructors in Wakefield 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 Wakefield 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 Wakefield

If you are new to driving lessons in Wakefield, we start you off in nursery areas like Carr Gate and East Ardsley. You will drive around Eastmoor and Hall Green. You will advance, at a rate which suits you, into more complex areas such as busy junctions and roundabouts.

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 Wakefield, you will experience more tricky junctions (traffic lights, one-way systems) and busier roundabouts. 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.

Please note: all driving lessons must be paid for in advance of your start date. We have a 48 hour cancellation policy, any lesson not cancelled within this time will be lost, along with your lesson fee. For full T&Cs please email the office at:

Wakefield Driving Test Centre

Waiting times for practical driving tests at the Wakefield test centre (Mothers Way Silkwood Park, Ossett, West Yorkshire, WF5 9TR) 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 Wakefield (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 Wakefield 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 Wakefield 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.

The pass rates of the driving school were very important to me when i was looking for a driving instructor. Location and closeness to the test centre also mattered. Learning to drive was harder than i expected it to be but i passed first time. Barry's teaching methods were very informative and thorough. I would really recommend Barry Woodward to anyone wanting to learn to drive, he was very patient and thorough.

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.

It was important to me that i felt comfortable on my lessons and to have a driving instructor who was patient and wouldn't rush me. Barry always made me feel like i could do anything and i didn't think i would enjoy learning, and then i passed my driving test first time. Barry was very patient with me and never pushed me to do anything i didn't want to do. Barry was great, i would highly recommend him, i didn't have any problems from the start.
