Driving Lessons in Harpurhey

Hi, I’m Uncle Joe and I’m a Driving Instructor covering the Harpurhey area of Manchester.

There are plenty of driving schools in Harpurhey for you to choose from, but there’s no point in trying to learn from someone you don’t trust so let’s get to know each other…

Driving Instructor in Harpurhey, Manchester,

My name is Joe, but most of my pupils call me Uncle Joe. I’ve been a driving instructor for over 6 years and worked for some of the biggest names in the industry but now I’m bringing my own approach and expertise to the learner drivers of Harpurhey.

ADI and DSA Approved

You’ll be glad to know that I’m a fully qualified and DSA approved Driving Instructor – that means I’m registered with the Driving Standards Authority, I’ve passed advanced practical and theoretical driving tests as well as having proved my ability to teach other people, and of course, I’ve been CRB checked for your safety.

It means that you can be reassured I know what I’m doing (I get to display a snazzy green badge in my car to prove it) and that I’m committed to what I do. And, it’s one of the reasons why I’ve maintained a brilliant pass rate – 8 out of 10 of my pupils pass first time.

What’s involved in my driving lessons?

I think the key to success when learning to drive is to master the basics before venturing on to the bigger, more challenging stuff. It’s like building a house, ensure you have good foundations and the rest of the build is a breeze!

A flexible approach is important and I tailor each lesson to the individual. There are no set timescales; the pace of the course will be set by how quickly you master the skills. There is no point in rushing through everything without making sure you are confident in each and every task.

I’m always looking for ways to improve my driving lessons…

I’m one of the very few driving instructors in Harpurhey, Manchester to embrace the power of technology. I love a good gadget and my iPad has proven itself to be really useful, enabling me to screen videos, provide mock Theory and Hazard Perception tests and book Theory and Practical driving tests in-car. Geeky but brilliant!

And finally…

Choosing a driving instructor in Harpurhey isn’t easy. Quality and price can vary greatly and given how low the average pass rate is and how expensive a test is, you’ll want to choose an instructor that will give you the best chance of passing first time. Learning to drive with Uncle Joe is one way to do just that!

Take a look around the site, see what I have to offer – maybe even give me a trial run by booking one of my £10 taster sessions if you’re still not sure, but whatever you decide, thanks for taking the time to visit Uncle Joe’s Driving School!

Looking to learn to drive in Harpurhey?


"When I started looking for a driving instructor after a long break from learning to drive my top priority was to find an instructor who was patient and easy-going. I asked Levenshulme's facebook group for advice and Uncle Joe got the most votes! When I started our lessons I understood why! Joe’s teaching style is very laid back and this suited me perfectly; sometimes I wondered if we were working hard enough because we seemed to spend so much time laughing! I was initially very nervous about starting lessons again but Joe let me learn at my own pace and helped me build my confidence. He broke down manoeuvres into simple fail-proof steps and built up a solid familiarity with the test routes so that on the day my nerves were minimal. I feel like Joe understood me as an individual and tailored our lessons around my learning style; the relaxed atmosphere in the car helped me assimilate my learning and correct my mistakes.""  Read More
