read moreWould absolutely recommend YDA. My instructor was Ilir and I passed first time after about 15 hours with him. Very calm and great at explaining everything, he lets you go at your own pace and is genuinely interested in helping you to pass. I started learning to drive 5 years ago with a terrible instructor who was only interested in making money, so finding Ilir was a blessing! Couldn't recommend him more highly, so happy with my experience. Great price, great driving school and couldn't have asked for a better instructor!!

read moreI previously had an instructor who was not really up to scratch in terms of being on time for lessons and the content we covered. However, Etty was miles apart from this, we got on like a house on fire from the first lesson and he made me feel so comfortable behind the wheel, meaning I passed my test first time with three minors today. I was never the most confident driver previously, but i can now honestly say I feel so much better behind the wheel and I owe it all to Etty. Simply one of the best instructors ever and I would encourage anyone who is starting their driving journey to have him as an instructor. Top man and even better instructor

read moreI definitely recommend Your Driving Academy. I really enjoyed my lessons with Etty. He is a very patient and diligent instructor. I felt that I made so much more progress with him than I had done with my previous instructor and now I have my driving licence!! :)

read moreI have already recommended YDA to people and I will continue to do so because it is the best driving company I have been with. Etty was the best instructor I had throughout my whole driving experience. He is patient, punctual, understanding and easy to talk to. Choose YDA!!

read moreI passed first time with YDA. Started lessons in Oct/Nov 2016 and passed in Feb 2017. I did have some road experience from my motorbike to give me a head start. But YDA were very good at making confident in the car.

Lessons with Etty felt informal which helped made it comfortable and helped me learn at my own pace. I know they have many instructors so I'm sure they can tailor lessons to suit you.

Would recommend, really friendly company and a pleasure to learn with.

read moreI could not be happier; I took my practical test today and passed first time! That would not have been achievable had I not received such a high standard of teaching from Etty at YDA. I cannot fault Etty; hes been reliable, professional, outgoing and extremely patient with me. Some of my lessons towards the beginning had been eventful to say the least! I would most definitely recommend YDA and would encourage anybody that may be looking to take driving lessons to get in touch!

Driving School Customer Reviews
read moreAfter having many lessons at 17 and again at 21 I severely lacked confidence in driving. After a few years off I decided to start again with your driving academy. Bhupinder is the best instructor I have ever had, she's completely put my mind at ease while driving. I passed yesterday first time all thanks to her! I would like to thank YDA and in particular Salah for getting me through my driving test first time with 2 minors. When I first started my lessons, my confidence was so low due to having anxiety but with Salah's experience he built my confidence and knew how to push me to get the best out of me, I always felt lessons was fun and productive.

read moreJust passed the driving test and could not have been more happier with Your Driving Academy. Although having only known Ehtisham in the academy, I would definitely recommend YDA above all other 'big name' driving schools. Throughout the lessons it is clear to see that advice and experience given in lessons is clear, To-the-point and easy to digest. The lessons were professional but very friendly in nature which made mistakes and learning easy to digest. All in all, a great driving academy and could not have been happier.
