Residential Driving Courses in Pontefract, West Yorkshire

LDC Driving School PontefractWant to learn to drive but the thought of taking lessons in a City Centre just fills you with dread. Why not come to Pontefract West Yorkshire and take one of our residential courses at our training centre shown here. The roads are quiet, the test centre is local and the cost of learning to drive is less expensive than in most major cities.

The only prerequisite to booking a residential course is a valid UK provisional driving licence and Theory Test certificate number.  If you have not yet passed your theory we can book this for you and provide all the necessary study materials required to pass your test with ease.  If you would like to see what driving on a Pontefract test route is like please look at the driving test videos in the Driving Test section.

Not only is Pontefract an ideal place to take a driving test/lessons it also has many things to offer visitors when they are not preparing for or taking their lessons. The rich history of Pontefract dates back to William the Conqueror. The ruins of Pontefract Castle are open to visitors most days.

For horse racing enthusiasts, the Pontefract Race Course is just 10 minute walk from the town centre and is set in the beautiful surroundings of Pontefract Park.

Xscape, is a large indoor entertainment centre,(restaurants, indoor skiing, movies, rock climbing, shopping and bowling) and is next door to the Junction 32 shopping centre which is only a short bus ride away (i.e. about 2 miles from the town centre).

In addition the medieval city of York is only 30 miles north and can easily be reached by train.  Leeds is 15 miles away, Wakefield is 8 miles and Doncaster is 12 miles. Good rail and bus links are available to each of these cities. The 5 star Tower House Guest House (see video below) is an ideal place to stay while taking your driving course and it is this accommodation that is included in the prices that follow.

We offer three standard residential courses; our One Week Pass Course designed to take you from beginner standard completed over 6 days; our 5 day Midway Pass Course designed for learners who already have basic driving Skills and our 4 day Test Booster Course for learners who are near test standard or who have recently failed a test.

All of our instructors are local, friendly and fully qualified to deliver the LDC courses.

The residential driving courses include either 4, 5 or 6 nights stay in the 5 star Tower House Bed and Breakfast with free pick up and drop off from any of our 3 local train stations including the direct train from Kings Cross, London to Monkhill, Pontefract (i.e. about 2 hours journey time).  Local rail links to other city stations include Wakefield, Leeds and Doncaster. If you prefer you can make your own arrangements but make sure you will have access to a DVD player.
