Driving Lessons Wakefield
Everyone knows that learning to drive is one of the first steps towards proper independence, and as such it’s quite important! Once you have your car and your licence, you’re free to go anywhere and do anything you like, any time you want. No more waiting for buses in the freezing cold.
With that in mind it’s important to pick the right driving school or instructor for you. Ask around your family and someone will have a story to tell about a horrid instructor who almost put them off learning to drive for good, so it’s clearly important to shop around. That’s probably why you’re here.
The question is: why should you learn to drive with us? There are loads of companies to choose from who you probably know already. As it happens there are all sorts of reasons why you should consider us as your first port of call for learning to drive.
1. Up to date, appropriate cars
All of our cars are modern, clean and comfortable. You can learn to drive in whatever kind of car you like. This can give you a huge advantage by the time of your test- make sure you take it in the same kind of car that you learned in, whether that’s your car or the same one as your instructor’s.
2. Stay Local
There’s no need to travel out of town, since we have trusted instructors in the Wakefield area. Not only do we ensure that they always teach to the highest standard, but they know every shortcut, speed bump and pot hole for miles around. Learning with one of our instructors in Wakefield, you’ll know the roads like the back of your hand in no time. This will come in really handy when it’s time to take your practical test!
3. Great Prices
Because of our online business model and low overheads, we’re able to offer very competitive prices on our driving lessons, especially when you buy in bulk all the way up to your test. Standard lessons in the area will cost you £24 if you prepay, and not much more for longer lessons too.
The great thing is that our discounts don’t mean a drop in quality… We save money on our bills, not on cutting corners. That means that you can expect top quality service at one of the lowest prices you’ll be able to find.
4. The benefits of learning with a trained instructor
It’s common to start learning initially with your relatives, and that can often be a great option to begin with. It’s impractical to only learn this way, however, for several reasons: it’s likely that they have quite a few gaps in their advanced driving knowledge, and it may be quite a while since they took their test. There’s also a good chance that they’ll be as nervous as you are, thinking that you might crash!
There’s also the benefit of learning in a specially designed instructor car: the instructor has an extra set of brake pedals on his or her side (also known as ‘dual controls’), and can use them in an emergency. Not to mention that costs like petrol and maintenance are all included in the lesson fee! You can also ask to learn in a car with an automatic gearbox, which is much easier for beginners, and that it’s unlikely you’ll be able to do when learning with family or friends.
What can you expect during a lesson?
Our lessons are suited for drivers of any skill level. Whether it’s your very first lesson, or you want some refresher lessons after having been on the road for a few years, we can cater for you.
For starters, the lesson will be all about you. Other companies try to make money by having you watch somebody else learn, as a sort of training exercise - but you wouldn’t have booked a lesson if you didn’t want to be behind the wheel! A lesson with us will be all about your learning, and you will have the undivided attention of our instructors at all times.
Lessons will be planned around your schedule, whether you’re available morning or evening. Lessons can be 1 to 2 hours long, whichever you prefer. We have male or female instructors, and every one of them has been vetted with a thorough background check to make sure you get nothing but the best.
Where can you learn to drive in Wakefield?
Before your practical exam, you’ll have to take the theory test. If you don’t know already, you have to learn about the Highway Code, the meaning of road signs, and take certain tests- but you won’t be behind the wheel, this will all be on pen and paper. You can find the nearest centre to you online at this address: https://www.gov.uk/book-theory-test
