Leeds city is one place where practising your driving skills in between your lessons really does make a huge difference!
With a heady mix of peaceful suburban streets to practice the trickier manoeuvres such as parallel parking, learner drivers in Leeds are spoilt for choice. If you’re looking for places to practise driving in Leeds, Gainsborough Avenue and the surrounding roads in Adel are particularly popular with learners.
Once you’ve got to grips with the basics, you’ll have a big variety of busy A roads to choose from, particularly in the south of the city, such as Meadow Road and Victoria Road. These are sure to build up your confidence driving at higher speeds and changing lanes, ready for your practical driving test. When you're test ready, make sure you check out our top tips for passing in your driving test in Leeds!
Once you’ve passed your test, you’re likely to use the infamous City Centre Loop on a regular basis, so we’d recommend getting a couple of driving lessons here beforehand. Well-known for befuddling sat navs and experienced local drivers alike, it’s easy to miss your exit on this one-way traffic system. So, make sure to keep a beady eye out!

Driving a manual vehicle isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, so we also offer automatic driving lessons in Leeds.
Take some time to think over which type of licence would suit you best before booking a driving lesson. You could find that driving an automatic car in Leeds is a little easier when negotiating the numerous hills of the city. On the other hand, a manual car gives you more control and could be better if you’re going to be doing a fair amount of motorway or country driving.
Perhaps the biggest plus of a manual licence is that it qualifies you to drive both automatic and manual cars, giving you greater flexibility. Learning in a manual car is definitely the more popular option, and as such Leeds has a large number of manual driving instructors ready and waiting!
Once you’re feeling confident behind the wheel, your driving instructor will help you to pick a driving test centre. They’ll ensure that you’re practising the routes that are likely to come up in your practical driving test.
We’ve helped over 300,000 learners pass their driving test so far. Imagine how many are in Leeds! Why not take a look at some of the lovely things they’ve said about us?
