Learning to drive can be a daunting and difficult experience. The process includes applying to DVSA for a provisional license at the age of 17, then two tests (Theory & Practical) have to be passed. In order pass these test you have to then find a driving school/instructor for your lessons. This again can be hit and miss unless you do your research, take recommendations or follow in family footsteps and choose a reputable school or instructor who is familiar. Alternatively, you can look for a school that has been established for a long time, has good reviews and can offer different options to learn to drive, for instance, option of Manual/Automatic cars, experienced Male/Female instructors and good reputation for service including punctuality and reliability.

As one of the longest established schools in North of England who have helped thousands of pupils pass their driving test.

He or she must feel comfortable and at ease during the lessons, for this reason we offer the option of Male and Female instructors.
