As you can see there are 5 very good reasons why you should choose us for driving requirements. Our driving school in Harrogate has various vehicles for you to choose from and they are all easy to drive cars.

All of our vehicles are diesel, making the car easier to move away at the beginning and excellent for clutch control. Wherever you are tall or small we can provide the right training vehicle for you. Some of our smaller pupils prefer the Mini and larger pupils tend to prefer the new Peugeot 208.

Check out our prices and offers page, remember we don’t hold any of your lessons back for test like many companies. If you pay for 10 hours you can take those lessons over the course of 1 week or 3 months, with no risk of losing your money.

If you have any questions or queries regarding how we operate, where we cover or anything else – please feel free to get in touch.

It took a long time for me to get into my driving lessons, having a bad experience with a previous school. DriveHarrogate managed to make me more confident and make me want to drive again.

I took an intensive course with DriveHarrogate and I’m really happy with everything. They helped me loads with my theory which I struggled with. I took 20 hours over 2 weeks and I passed first time with 2 minors!
