How Do I Find The Right School For Me?"
Would you like some 100% honest trustworthy price advice
without the 'hard sell'?
You only do this once, so you want to get it right first time - 30% get it wrong
we'll show you why.
Two minutes is all it takes to find the best instructors, the best lessons
and the best deals saving you £400+.
So which one is the best? It's easy to find out if you know the right questions to ask, so here goes...
Are the most expensive lessons the best?
The so-called 'top five' schools are all very expensive, they have national call centres, head offices and lots of staff to pay and guess who gets the bill – you! The most expensive lesson comes in at a whopping £45.00, with the other four not far behind. They have offers like '5 For £125' in big letters on their cars to trap you. They save you a little at the start, after that they drain all your cash away week after week.
Who has the cheapest lessons?
The cheapest opening offer we could find for you was '5 for £125'. Think about this for a minute...
A lesson with this instructor only costs £25 an hour, take off the petrol and tax and he's working for less than £15.00 an hour. Do you honestly think you are going to get top quality driving lessons in this car??
Our advice - Avoid anyone who offers you driving lessons for less than £30 an hour.
So what's the average price for a driving lesson in Wakefield?
We've added all the prices up and the average hourly rate comes in at £35.00, but if you choose a driving school in Wakefield by price alone you are going to lose out 'big time', let us show you why.
We promised to save you £400, here's how...
How do I save £400?
Worryingly, 14 out of 37 driving instructors in Wakefield just treat this as a 'job' – a way of earning money. Several tell us they wish they were doing something else and can't wait to leave. They don't have any set plans for you to follow and don't really mind if you fail your test or not - more money for them when you ring for refresher lessons.
A 'professional' instructor that delivers a well-structured course of driving lessons takes 12 -15 hours less to prepare you for your test, saving you a minimum of £400 in wasted lessons, so why lose money learning with someone who gives you endless 'drive around' lessons?
You'll be pleased to learn that we have a modern well - structured 20 module course of driving lessons waiting for you, where you learn something new and drive somewhere different on every lesson. We don't do 'boring' lessons. We make sure that you get one step closer to passing your test every time.
Want to know how good our lessons are? These figures don't lie -
National average pass rate 47% - Our pass rate 76% +30% better
Maximum number of minor faults you can make on test - 15
Average number of minor faults our pupils make - 4
How is this possible?
The big driving schools have driving instructors that spread themselves thinly across five different test centres. We are a local driving school, so we have specialist local driving instructors that know the best training routes in and around Wakefield test centre. We only use Wakefield driving test centre and we only work with local specialist driving instructors in Wakefield - a big advantage for you.
We also include the all - important 'mock test' element in our course to give you the best chance of passing. Amazingly, only 1 in 3 driving schools in Wakefield can be bothered to carry out mock tests.
Do you want your first test to be the 'real thing' - thrown in at the 'deep end' or would you like plenty of practise tests first? This is why we get such good results, a 30% better chance of passing with us.
So how much do you charge?
We've put a package together for you that beats all the other 36 driving schools in the area.
We don't do silly confusing offers that are tricky to work out, we save you more by giving you free lessons instead.
New learners can take advantage of our free 'welcome bundle' that includes:
Free access to the best online theory test learning resource in the UK – 'Theory Test Pro'.

As a 'thank you' for taking lessons with us, we give you two free lessons on the day of your test - Yes, you only pay for the test, not the car!
This deal saves you a massive £100 - enough to pay for both your theory and driving tests.
You will be pleased to learn that our driving lessons cost less than the Wakefield average - our 90 minute lessons are only £50.00.
(We don't do short 60 minute lessons, as this is the least efficient way to passing your test.)
