Getting Started with Driving Lessons

For some people, starting driving lessons can be a bit of a worry and If you're a first-time learner, it's completely understandable to feel a little nervous when sitting next to a driving instructor for the first time.

But don’t worry. I will treat you as an individual, encouraging you to learn at your own pace. You will gradually be introduced to new driving scenarios, allowing you to build your confidence in each area of driving until you are ready to tackle the practical test with confidence! 

As a pupil from Guiseley, Yeadon, Otley or Ilkley. You’ll learn to drive on roads that you know as well as those that you don’t. Including roads used by your local driving test centre.

Flexible Driving Tuition

I always tailor the program of driving lessons for each individual learner and this can also include collecting you from your home or place of work.

I have a modern, clean and reliable air-conditioned car, with dual controls for your safety. And under normal circumstances you will always have that same vehicle throughout your driving lessons and also for your driving test.

On the day of your driving test, we will drive to the Test Centre and I will wait for you to complete it. Taking your test in a familiar vehicle will give you confidence and increase your chance of success.

Professional Driving Lessons

Driving is not just about passing the test with the least amount of lessons or expenditure, it is also about acquiring life skills and becoming a safe, confident and considerate driver.

Bad habits and attitudes are easy to learn and hard to break. Research carried out by the DSA shows that on average, people who pass their driving test have had at least 42 hours of professional driving lessons with an additional 22 hours of private tuition.

These are just guidelines and some people may need additional driving tuition. The most important factor is that they become safe and responsible drivers for life.

For this reason, it is said that all learner drivers should undertake driving lessons with a properly trained driving instructor.

Blue Sky Driving School provide affordable driving lessons for people in Guiseley, Yeadon, Otley, Ilkley and all surrounding areas.



"Jan is a superb driving instructor, equipped with patience, kindness and humour she was so easy to get along with, she tailored each lesson to my weakness, improving on them every time which allowed me to pass first time, if I was ever unsure on anything I was never hesitant to ask, highly recommend Jan, such a wonderful teacher"

"Jan is a great instructor, she is extremely patient, professional and encouraging. She made me feel at ease every lesson and really grew my confidence. I would highly recommend her! Thanks jan'"

Lauren 9th July 2017

Jan was very supportive and professional in her teaching methods. She was reliable and flexible in allocating time for me, and really helped me gain some confidence for my test. I enjoyed my lessons and overall experience with her, and would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn.


I passed my driving test first time with Jan! She was incredibly patient with any mistakes I made and helped me identify where I was going wrong in areas I struggled with! She was also really flexible with my irregular working pattern and always found a way to fit me in! I would highly recommend Jan to any new driver.

I tried 2 driving instructors before finding Janice. She was calm, thorough, reassuring, reliable and flexible. I passed my theory and practical tests first time and would definitely recommend Janice.

Ellie aged 17

"I learned to drive- alongside Jan- over many months. I mainly had issues with driving confidence yet Jan was very organised, patient and educative which made my learning much easier. Using her wisdom she recognised when I was ready to take my test and as a result I was positively surprised by passing first time; the test day was pleasant because of the driving methods she instilled in me.  Furthermore, I genuinely believe that I am a competent driver now.

Ant Clayton

Jan is an excellent driving instructor. She is extremely professional and explains everything in a way that is easy to understand. One thing I found particularly helpful is that Jan was able to be flexible around my busy working schedule which made it easy to have frequent lessons. Her teaching methods instilled confidence quickly, allowing me to relax and focus on driving. I couldn’t recommend Blue Sky Driving more highly

I have just passed my driving test with Jan at Blue sky. Jan was always patient, very friendly and encouraging. She helped me gain confidence to learn to drive. I would highly recommend Jan.

Jan is the second driving instructor I have been with. She’s kind, calm and patient, as well as supportive! I dreaded driving in general before learning with jan and now I am confident. Janine doesn’t only teach you on how to past your test but how to be a good driver in general. Would highly recommend her to anyone and especially those who feel tentative about driving. 
Emma Eastwood

I started with Jan in September2017, I did the 10 hour block booking. she always worked with me to secure a lesson and plan in-advance as this could be difficult sometime due to childcare. I did 1hr 30 mins lessons as could only have one a week but I felt each lesson at the beginning I learnt something new and took the later weeks to improve on these. She was always patient with me and very friendly. I passed my test 11th May having under 30 hours!! Excellent driving instructor who will invest her time into you.

Jamie Johnston - May 2018

"Jan was a great teacher; patient, well organised and kind... and as a nervous learner, that made a world of difference to me. She really wants you to succeed in passing and will do everything she can to help make you into a good driver. I really enjoyed my lessons and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her!"
