I will coach you to the highest standard whether you have driven before or not, to increase your confidence and ability to drive, once we are confident in our driving we will move on to drive on the busier roads such as the A59 Skipton road, Ripon road A61 and Wetherby road A59 which will help you pass your practical test. We will spend time in Harrogate and Knaresborough, often going out towards Wetherby (A661), Otley (A6161) and York (A59) to practice country roads.
It is important to practice roads and routes you may encounter on your driving test that could catch you out and challenge you in some tricky areas. You will also find driving at different times of the day helpful as the volumes of traffic are changeable. Different driving conditions and situations will not only aid you in your test, but also after when you have passed!
Finally if you're looking at learning to drive, or have already passed and need refresher lessons I'm always happy to help at Taylormade Driving School Automatic and Adapted vehicle
