I passed my driving test with my Instructor ,Liliana. She is an excellent
instructor, very patient and dedicated, will always prioritise you and make time especially close to the exams. Every class I had was truly enjoyable and she ensures you are confident enough to the take the exam. Also, she makes its a stress free environment. She will make you repeat and practice a mistake many times until you get it right with tremendous amount of patience. My personal weakness was the roundabout, and we practiced XX no of times repeated until I was confident. That made me very confident and happy having her as an instructor. I highly recommend her as an instructor. Worth every penny and reasonably priced.

I was a new driver never been on the roads before started in February 2020 and due to Covid my lessons got delayed but I passed with the first time of me trying today with your driving academy.
Consistent informative lessons, with instructors always willing to help, friendly environment at all times and whatever level of driver you currently are this company will definitely find an instructor help you get that pass.
Big Shoutout to Moin who was my instructor throughout, never been with any other instructor since I started learning but honestly he is the best instructor in the UK and deserves all the accolades there are to give.
Will be recommending him and Your Driving Academy to anyone trying to learn how to drive and pass their test in Leicester!

Recently had the best learning experience with Sabina, she’s one of the best instructors out here who go by your pace and ensure you pass your first time round! Always on time and always a pleasure to be around! Lessons are in depth and her way of explaining and demonstrating gets straight to the point. Overall recommend Sabina 100%! Will miss those driving lessons, she also adapts to your timings which is a major plus point

Wonderful experience using Your Driving Academy and Driving Instructor Ilir. I went from having no driving experience and being nervous to drive... to a first time pass in 25 hours. Ilir took me through at the pace he felt I was picking it up, and identified areas that I was less confident in to practise.
Highly recommended for anyone looking. Thanks!

Would absolutely recommend YDA. My instructor Sabina has been so patient and motivating throughout my lessons. I felt I could never drive but she is an excellent instructor and helped me pass my test in the very first attempt. She was honest and very professional and made sure I was 100% ready for the test. Thank you so much YDA and especially Sabina!

Really good driving academy and I had a great instructor. Sajid was an amazing instructor who put me at ease from the first lesson and was really easy to get on with!! After needing to find a new instructor Sajid gave me as many lessons as I needed and gave me what suited me. He thought me everything in a short period of time and I passed first time with one minor. I highly recommend if you use YDA go with sajid for your lessons

I had Mitesh , he’s been my 7th driving instructor and was the best one by far who actually taught me how to drive in real life and not just around a route. Coming from london to Leicester was a challenge but he helped me overcome it in only 13 hours. Thank you, only had 4 minors! Would recommend

5 star
I would recommend YDA to everyone. It has been an absolute pleasure learning with my Instructor Salah. He is a lovely instructor, who made me feel very confident throughout. He is very patient and discussed and explanation the weakness after each lesson, which made the process so much faster & made me overcome those weaknesses in such a short period of time. Salah is very reliable and understanding person. It was a pleasure learning driving with Salah. Thank you once again for teaching me in such a great way, which led to passing my test so quickly.

I really wanted to recommend this driving academy because of the positive experience I had with them. I took lessons from Moin, whose lessons were very informative and he was quite patient with some of my bad driving habits. I was able to pass first time with few minors. Also, some of the lessons focused on practicing the test routes and that really helped make a difference. Hope you guys find this useful.
