Get your nerves under control in any traffic situation. Gain confidence while learning to drive a manual car and pass the test! Most of all, start to enjoy driving!
It is important to remember that if you have a manual licence, you can drive either automatic or manual cars once you have passed your test.
At YES! Driving School we will encourage you to become a forward-thinking, confident and safe driver. You will be capable of making the right decision in any and all traffic situations. It is important to remember that the DVSA Test standard is the minimum standard required for you to drive solo. At YES! Driving School, we will encourage you to aim well beyond the minimum standard required and therefore be safe for the rest of your driving life.

A car using automatic transmission changes gears for you, giving you less to do whilst driving. This allows you to concentrate more on the finer points of driving. The DVSA test standard is the same as for driving a manual car and you must achieve this standard to be able to drive solo.
However, at YES! Driving School we encourage all pupils to aim beyond that minimum standard and become a forward-thinking, confident and safe driver who is able to deal with any and all traffic situations. The ultimate aim is to equip you with the skills and knowledge to be safe for the rest of your driving life.

YES! Driving School offers a variety of adaptions to one of our automatic cars. We have 2 instructors who have successfully completed the Mobility Course with QEF, which has given them an in depth knowledge of adaptions and techniques to be used to enable people with a variety of disabilities to be successful at driving. The simple steering ball and lollipop can be used with either hand and, as you can see in the video, the left foot accelerator is an easy adaptation.
After consultation with your instructor, or may be possible to take lessons in your own adapted car.

B+E trailer lessons tailored for you to learn how to tow caravans, equestrian trailers or building industry and more. We can prepare you for the B+E test or simply teach you to tow and reverse your trailer safely within weekend.
Firstly you will have the opportunity to demonstrate your level of competence as a driver and then to brush up your skills where necessary. We will explain in detail what is required to pass your B+E Test. From this we will discuss the level of training required and tailor learning to your preference.
Training will cover health & safety, relevant basic towing in law, pre-towing inspection routine, hitching up & un-hitching, reversing and manoeuvring. If you already have experience in towing trailers however do not hold a B+E licence then a refresher lesson will also help show you what is needed to pass your test.
A refresher lesson on towing is designed to raise your confidence and ability to reverse and manoeuvre your trailer/caravan. So if you already hold a B+E licence but require a helping hand in getting to grips with all things towing then a Refresher Lesson is just for you.
Our Advanced Instructors will tutor you through to a standard of driving far superior to the standards required to pass the DVSA Learner Test.
“Advanced driving is the ability to control the position and speed of the vehicle safely, systematically and smoothly, using road and traffic conditions to progress unobtrusively with skill and responsibility. This skill requires a positive but courteous attitude and a high standard of driving competence based on concentration, effective all round observation, anticipation, and planning. This must be co-ordinated with good handling skills. The vehicle will always be at the right speed with the correct gear engaged and can always be stopped safely on its own side of the road in the distance that can be seen to be clear.”
– DSA, RoADAR, IAM, 1997
Advanced Drivers have also been proven to be less likely to crash. They also drive in a manner which is far more cost effective, keeping fuel costs to a minimum and reducing the amount of wear and tear on the vehicle.
