Why Learn Driving UK?

Learn Driving UK is a family run award winning driving school that puts the needs of the pupil first.

Choosing a Driving School

Choosing a driving school is one of the most important decisions you must make and can be a daunting prospect. So how do you go about identifying the one to suit your needs?

By far the best method is a recommendation from a friend or relative who can give first-hand experience.

Recommendations supply us with approx. 75% of our work, this is something that we are very proud of. We like to think that all our students are happy with the service and tuition that they receive.

Continued Professional Development (CPD) of Learn Driving UK Driving Instructors

Unfortunately, the standard of driving tuition and service throughout the industry is not as high as it should be, and for this reason the Driving Standards Agency (the people who conduct your driving test and those that are responsible for overseeing the industry) have introduced, continued professional development (CPD).

This means that driving instructors must complete extra training to maintain or improve standards.

Here at Learn Driving UK Driving School we take continued professional development very seriously and as the Driving School is co-owned by one of the top Driving Instructor Trainers in the country, Phil Hirst, we spend a lot of time on continuous development of our driving instructors.

Want to Change Your Driving School?

A proportion of our work is from students that have decided to change from their present school due to a variety of reasons e.g.

"My instructor is always talking on the phone instead of looking after me".

"I receive no feedback to enable me to improve".

"He/she is always late".

"The tuition car smells of smoke".

"He/she talks more about themselves than about my driving".

“My instructor shouts at me”.

“My instructor makes me feel uncomfortable”.

These are some of the reasons that are given to us when talking to new students.

Does this sound familiar?

Value for Money Driving Lessons

Here at Learn Driving UK Driving School we feel that we offer a realistic lesson fee that enables us to attract the very best instructors in the area and invest in continued training to keep us at the top of our profession.
As mentioned previously your choice is a daunting one and your final decision could be a very expensive mistake if you get it wrong.

Whatever your choice, we hope it is the correct one and would like to wish you a positive learning experience along with safe driving for life.

If we don’t get it right, then please let us know so we can help you have a happy and positive driving experience.

Areas We Cover

We help you achieve your driving goals in the following areas.


Learning to drive in the beautiful spa town of Harrogate couldn’t be simpler to achieve with Learn Driving UK. Beginners will have their first driving lesson on what we call, quiet, nursery roads; for instance, the Duchy estate or Bilton area.


Starting out on your journey to learn to drive in Knaresborough can be quite a scary prospect. If you are a nervous driver, please do not worry as all driving instructors are professional and trained to a very high standard.


Our Leeds based driving instructors are achieving a much higher pass rate due to their knowledge of the local area, professionalism, and experience of judging when their pupils are ready to take their driving test.


We have been offering driving lessons in Pontefract for many years now, offering high quality, professional lessons to our customers. Pontefract is steeped in history and an iconic place to live, work, relax and learn to drive.


If you live in Scarborough 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.


If you are starting your 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.


Unless you are quite experienced, expect to start learning to drive in Whitby, steadily, progressing at a rate you can cope with. Local housing estates give us the nursery routes required to build confidence.
