I was so grateful two years ago a gentlemen heard my conversation with my mum about driving lessons and recommended Achieve and said Kev was lovely man and would get me to succeed. I have learned with Kev for 2 years before passing yesterday first time and his time and patience, advice and methods have help me to succeed and complete my dream of driving! For me the best instructor I know of in 5 towns, cheap prices as well as other prices I saw weren’t suitable for me. And also being a cas fan helped as well! Always willing to go over areas over and over again which I believe helped me pass first time.
It took me longer then I first pictured but I wouldn’t change my learning for any other. Thanks again Kev.

I can't thank Kev enough! An amazing teacher, friend and I'd recommend him to anyone who's thinking about learning to drive. He's been there through the highs, lows and diva tantrums but we got there in the end! Thank you so much, it's not going to be same without my Monday evening driving lessons

Today I passed my driving test on the first try and it is completely down to how fantastic Kev is as a driving instructor! He's made the learning experience so enjoyable and comfortable and I'm floored by my own confidence when driving! Thank you so much Kev, I'll see you soon for a go at the Pass Plus scheme!

My driving experience with Kev was incredible. As well as being a great instructor, he's also a genuinely nice guy. I found his teaching methods to be engaging and thorough - he has all the utilities that's needed in order to fully understand the different aspects of driving. I found I was taught how to be a good, safe driver, rather than just what I needed to know in order to pass my test. I would highly recommend Kev to anyone, of any age, wanting to learn to drive. I passed first time with Kev, and contacting him to arrange my first lesson is something I do not regret!

Customer Testimonials

I chose Achieve as I won a few free driving lessons in a competition that Kevin had entered a prize for.I found that there was a lot more information to take on board than I originally thought although I found the manoeuvres easier to learn.Kevins teaching methods were excellent…patient and he taught at a good pace.I would definitely recommend Achieve unless someone wanted more than one lesson a week as they are very busy…probably for the same reasons above.Kevin is an awesome Instructor.


I chose Achieve as they had been recommended by some of my friends.Before I started my lessons I was unsure of what to expect but Kev`s teaching methods were very useful and easy to understand.I would definitely recommend him as he was a great teaching Instructor and always gave me support when I needed it.


I chose Achieve because my brother passed first time with them.I was expecting it to be harder than it was although I wasn`t expecting to have to be so aware of other drivers and how my driving affected them.Kev`s teaching methods were very good.His instructions were easy to follow and he was very calming if and when things went wrong.I would certainly recommend him due to how well different techniques were taught and explained.

'Show me, tell me': show me questions 2018: official DVSA guide

Official DVSA guide to the driving test show me questions (where you show how youd carry out a safety task) while youre driving.

From Our Website

At Achieve School of Motoring ( Driving Lessons Wakefield ), We provide expert tuition to leaner drivers throughout Wakefield, Castleford and Pontefract as well as most areas of East Leeds notably Garforth, Kippax, Rothwell and surrounding areas. We run a DVSA approved learner driving programme with excellent pass rates. Just check out our testimonials for all our past. Aside from all of our technical expertise and accreditations you can be sure that you will get a friendly, patient, fun and relaxed experience.


If successful your Examiner will ask you if you would like him/her to send your Provisional license away to be replaced by your full driving license. This route will be quicker than if you send it off yourself. If you are unsuccessful the post-test debrief with the examiner should point out the areas to be worked on. It's hard to take in when you have just had bad news but if you can take on board this valuable information, it highly likely that you will not make those errors again and we can both work together to achieve the pass on the next test.


Question #1: Open the bonnet, identify where you would check the engine oil level and tell me how you would check that the engine has sufficient oil. Identify dipstick / oil level indicator, describe check of oil level against the minimum/maximum markers. Question #2: Show me / explain how you would check that the power assisted steering is working before starting a journey. If the steering becomes heavy the system may not be working properly. Before starting a journey two simple checks can be made.


1. HAVE REGULAR LESSONS.Weekly if you can. Try to increase the length of your lessons. Start with 1 hour then try 1.5 hours and maybe 2 hours. This will help to promote increased periods of concentration and will ultimately shorten the period of learning. 2. BE PREPARED FOR YOUR LESSON.Whatever you were doing immediately before your lesson forget. Switch into driving mode BEFORE you get in the car. Remember the car can be a lethal weapon in the wrong hands. 3. USE THE RECAP START OF THE LESSON.This is important as if it is conducted properly it should focus on events of the previous lesson.


The Practical Driving Test will last for between 35 and 40 minutes during which time a pupil will be accompanied by a DSA Examiner. As your Instructor I am permitted to sit in the back if you want me to. I am merely there as an Observer though and can play no part in the Test. To begin you are tested on your general car based knowledge with a serious of ‘show me tell me' questions. These are simple questions designed to show that you have knowledge of some of the cars basic operating functions and systems.


In order to take your Driving Test you must have taken and passed the DSA Theory Test. This is a computerised test and our local Test Centre is in Leeds. The test consists of 50 multiple choice questions covering a range of subjects such as Road procedure and Road and Traffic Signs. You must obtain a mark of 43 in order to pass. The second part is a Hazard Perception test in which you will be shown 14 video clips. You will be expected to observe and identify 15 developing hazards. The pass mark required here is 44 out of a possible 75 with marks reducing depending on how long it takes you to identify the hazard.


As well as benefiting the new driver in terms of new skills it can also have a financial benefit as many Insurance Companies will offer 1st year reductions in premiums for Pass Plus students. Passing the course is done by either achieving the standards required or exceeding them and there is NO TEST.


As standard, most driving schools offer you that incentive bulk purchase deal - we've priced up the competition to bring you one of the cheapest deals in the Wakefield, Castleford, Pontefract and East Leeds regions of West Yorkshire. 10 lessons block bookings are typically the most effective way of booking your leaner driver programme. We're absolutely committed to making your leaner driving experience as easy and stress free as possible, so we've even introduced a money back guarantee that secures your payment if you're not happy with the service that you've received.
