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 DBS 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.

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.

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.

I wanted a driving instructor who took the time to understand my personality and someone who didn't rush me and put me under pressure when learning to drive. Barry was better than I expected, Barry was beyond patient and I never felt like I  was asking a stupid question. His teaching methods were brilliant, easy to follow and understand. I would highly recommend 100%, because I felt really looked after, no pressure ever.

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.

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.

"I chose Barry as knowing that he's respected and I was given good reviews from a friend was very important.
It was also important that we got along, and that the instructor be patient with the learner. Barry was great.

I didn't think it would be difficult to learn but there are many things which makes driving more difficult.
Barry was amazing, couldn't ask for a better instructor.
I would highly recommend as great lesson prices, instructor is very good and friendly. I wouldn't change a thing".
