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.

"I really wanted to succeed in passing and being a confident driver.  I wanted a driving instructor that was trustworthy. Learning to drive was much better than expected.

Barry was brilliant, and although at times I got confused Barry would always explain in a way that made sense. I would highly recommend Barry as he made me feel confident and he is reliable".

I'd seen Barry's car a few times and I asked for a business card. Barry is a very good, very easy to get on with Instructor. Our lessons were always planned really well. Barry is an excellent instructor and good company. I'm going to drive for as long as I can now and take my friends to Brid for the day.

I would like to say a big thank you to Barry Woodward for getting me through my driving test first time in Wakefield. Barry was so kind and such a calming influence on me when i would get angry with myself. Barry never shouted at me and was always calm. I would recommend him and Learn Driving UK to any one. I am looking forward to driving my own car now, and no more buses...Yeh!!

Barry made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I recieved a gift voucher for my driving lessons with Learn Driving UK. I would highly recommend them, Barry was very good at his job and professional. I passed first time with only 3 minors. Now i'll be safer and not kill myself on the motorbike in winter.

Barry was recommended to me from friend I passed first time. I think that says everything about how good an instructor barry is! Thank you! I will definitely recommend Barry to everyone. I like the way Barry taught me to drive specially when I get ready for my test we did few mock tests and I think that's helped me a lot. I'm looking for my own car, I think my first car will be a Ford fiesta.

I wanted an experienced Instructor that had good results. Reliability was also very important to me. Thats why i chose Learn Driving UK. Learning to drive was harder than i expected it to be (road rules) but Peter Wallace was brilliant and very thorough. I would highly recommend Peter and Learn Driving UK because the prices are fair and the instructors are well trained. There is nothing i would change.

It was important to make sure it was a well known school and that it was reliable. I didn't expect some aspects to be as difficult as they were. But Barry was very helpful. I would highly recommend as Barry is a very good instructor and very friendly. There is nothing i would change at all.

LDUK had good introductory offers for new learners which appealed to me. Everything about LDUK is professional, the website, staff etc. Learning to drive with Peter met and exceeded my expectations, i didn't pick it up as quickly as i first thought i would but Peter was very good and reassuring. Peters teaching methods were spot on, perfect amount of room to make mistakes and learn for myself. Thanks Peter.
