Looking For Driving Lessons in Leicester?

By the end of this post you'll know step by step how to choose the right driving instructor for your driving lessons in Leicester!


So it's time you took driving lessons to pass your theory and practical driving tests...

But how do you decide who to learn with...

There are hundreds of driving schools and driving instructors in Leicester - but which one is right for you?

Are all driving schools in Leicester the same?

Should I choose a driving school recommended by family member or friend? 

Or you want to make an informed decision but not sure where to start?

If you're going by a recommendation or searching online, do some research on the driving school. 

  • How long have they been in business?
  • Are the instructors fully qualified?
  • Can they work around your schedule?
  • Genuine customer reviews
  • Recent driving test passes?

If the websites promising and answered the above questions, it's time to get in touch and have a conversation. Although they maybe several ways to reach out to the driving school, my personal recommendation is pickup the phone!

Questions to ask your potential driving instructor:

  • How soon can I get started?
  • Can you work around my schedule?
  • Do you have female instructors in Leicester?
  • Do you have automatic driving instructors in Leicester?
  • Do you have any offers or block booking discounts?
  • Can I book a trial driving lesson?

Having a phone conversation would be the best way to get a good feel for the driving school. Are they approachable? Show genuine interest in you as an individual? 

Not every driving instructor in Leicester or in fact anywhere are the same. Driving instruction is a service and not a product.

Aren't all driving instructors the same?

What's the difference you ask?

Choosing a driving instructor is like choosing a hairdresser. 

Do all hairdressers offer appointments to work around your schedule? Do all hairdressers use high quality products in your hair? Do all hairdressers specialise in every type of hairstyle? i.e. skin fades or designs.

Would you go to any hairdresser? Or the £3.50 hairdresser?

Similarly, choosing a driving instructor for your driving lessons is like choosing a hairdresser. You wouldn't just go to any hairdresser!

So why would you choose a driving instructor at random considering you'll be investing a few hundred pounds on your journey. 

Your priorities for choosing the right trainer for your driving lessons in Leicester will be unique to you.

At Your Driving Academy we take the time out to understand your individual needs, your individual requirements so we can assign the right type of trainer for your driving lessons. 

You may need a trainer who can help build your confidence and be super-patient. Or you may need a driving instructor who can get you to test standard by taking an intensive course. Maybe you'd feel more comfortable learning with a female driving instructor?

At YDA we work closely with our expert driving instructors and know their strengths. Having access to a range of YDA driving instructors in Leicester we can assign the right trainer to meet your needs. 

Choosing a recommended driving instructor? 

Choosing to take driving lessons with a driving instructor your friends or family member have used is definitely an option worth considering.

However, you're not the same person as your friend/family - you're unique in your own way. 

Your needs and requirements maybe different to of your friends/family. 

Book a trial driving lesson -  Don't bet the farm

Once you've narrowed down your choices to 1 or 2 driving instructors in Leicester, book a trial driving lesson and see how you get on. You'd rather loose £50 on the wrong driving instructor then £300.
