Our Driving Lesson Reviews

Don’t just take our word for it! Here are what some of are lovely customers had to say about us!

Andy Tiberia

“I did a week-long intensive course with Graham and passed first time. It was a pleasure to be taught by him. He is excellent at explaining things and really making sure you understand the concepts before putting them to practice. Graham is patient yet diligent, expertly identifying points where you’re going wrong and ensuring that they’re fixed and you’re ready for your test. I highly recommend Graham and York Driving School for a great learning experience.”

Sophie Pomfret

“Graham, is a very knowledgeable and helpful driving instructor. I had already had previous driving lessons but I did a PassMeFast course with Graham and he got me to test standard in just 8hours. I am happy to share that I did pass on my first try thanks to Graham and I don’t know if I could have done it without his knowledge and support. I highly recommend him!”

Natasha Stacey

“Graham has been a brilliant driving instructor… finally getting me to where I needed to be in a very short space of time after many years of trying elsewhere! He is very vigilant has kept me focused while being lovely and patient at the same time!! Would highly recommend!”

Charlie Purvis

“Graham was an amazing teacher I’m so glad that I went with him. I learnt everything I need too pass in 20 lessons I can’t thank him enough. I love being on the road. Thank you and thank you for being so friendly and down to earth you made my experience better because I wasn’t scared around you which made me not scared for my test. I highly recommend. Thank you very much!”

Roland Spencer

“Graham was a brilliant driving instructor. Would highly recommend to anyone in the York area. He’s extremely supportive, incredibly calm and makes sure you’re confident for your test. No cutting corners!”

Tekera Quin

“Would really recommend as Graham was so supportive and calm he made me feel very comfortable and also helped so much as I had lessons in the past with a different instructor and failed my first test as it knocked my confidence and I never thought anyone would be able to help then got told about Graham and I passed first time with him I couldn’t of asked for a better instructor!”

About The Car

The car York Driving School is using is a Citroen DS3. It has a 1.6 litre Diesel engine and is very responsive. It is important to have a car that is capable of quick acceleration as you will be driving on lots of faster roads including country roads and dual carriageways, as well as city centre driving.

Driving Courses In York

We offer an excellent ‘Beginners Package‘ of 5 hours tuition (actual driving) for £109. Most driving schools are full price from the first lesson. Intensive courses vary in price depending on how many hours would be required. A full price list is available on request and listed on the website.

Learners are now allowed to drive on motorways as long as they have had more than 20 hours tuition with a professional driving instructor, some students prefer to wait until they have more experience. That’s why a 3 hour motorway lesson or a 6 hour Pass Plus course would be a great idea to get you going.

Or if you’re feeling a bit low on confidence, or haven’t driven for some time, a ‘Refresher Course‘ would be the ideal thing for you.
