Useful information on your driving lessons
Although we are a busy and popular driving schools, we generally have availability for new starters. Our hours are flexible so you can book lessons at a time to suit you. You just need your provisional licence to get started.
Like most things, learning to drive varies from person to person. Many of our students pass their test within 40 lessons, but some take longer and of course some take less! Learning to drive is a very personal journey and we will guide you through it.
Your lessons will take place around Baildon and Bradford, generally in the area we pick you up from. As part of your lessons, we'll make sure you experience a range of different driving conditions, from narrow country lanes to busy city centre traffic.
We have both manual and automatic cars available to learn in, so the decision is entirely up to you!
We always recommend that you purchase a block of lessons to benefit form reduced rates. Just ask to find out more.
We are very flexible and offer lessons throughout the day and evening in order to accommodate our students' various commitments. Lessons are built around you, not us.
Leave the worrying to us! Our instructors are calm and patient and will settle any nerves you may have. They have years of experience and have helped even the most nervous students to build confidence and pass their test.
The minimum age to start lessons on the road is 17. We also welcome older students, who might be learning to drive for the first time or simply want to refresh or advance their skills.
We use a number of local test centres : Steeton, Bradford (Heaton and Thornbury), Skipton and Leeds (Horsforth). You can choose any driving test centre to do your practical test, but common sense usually means you pick the one nearest to your home. That way it's easy to get to, and chances are you'll have a fairly good knowledge of the surrounding roads, so you're not taking your test on an unknown route.
The health and safety of our pupils and instructors is our number one priority. Read our Covid-19 guidelines here.
We cover theory in the normal course of our lessons, for example understanding signs and road markings. We also expect you to study in your own time and we'll be happy to recommend suitable books or apps, as well as provide you with our own resources.
Don't worry if you don't pass first time. You can apply straight away for another test date. We can identify what you failed on and work on that for next time.
