About West Yorkshire Driver Training

driving school West Yorkshire

West Yorkshire Driver Training is part of Manchester Driver Training Group.

Manchester Driver Training is an experienced provider of learner driver tuition and many other specialist courses.

In response to the Covid pandemic causing delays with availability of driving instructors we have offered opportunities to people living in Wakefield West Yorkshire, who would like to provide driving lessons. This creates a two fold benefit, firstly by creating jobs and incomes for people, secondly with more driving instructors available within an area it creates less of a wait for those who are looking for driving lessons.

driving mock test West Yorkshire

Second Opinion Independent Mock Driving Tests

Second opinion independent mock driving tests are designed for test standard pupils who are undertaking driving lessons with another driving school or driving instructor.

The assessment looks at your current standard of drive and compares it to that of the U.K. driving test standard.

The aim is for you to be made aware of how you may drive under pressure on your driving test day with an unknown driving examiner instead of your current driving instructor who you have learnt to drive with.

This course is normally 2 hours in duration as you will require:

  • Travel time to the driving test centre.
  • 40 Minutes for your practice test assessment.
  • Verbal debrief after your practice test assessment.
  • Any remedial practice after your practice test and travel time home.

The mock test will be conducted at the driving test centre of your choice using a route which you may need to negotiate on your actual driving test day.

The cost for this course starts at £59 for 2 hours
