Driving Lessons in Northenden

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

There are plenty of driving schools in Northenden 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 Northenden, 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 Northenden.

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 Northenden, 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 Northenden 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 Northenden?


"While living in Bulford which is located down south having done my driving lesson with another instructor and my test 4 times but failed, in my mind he was the best for me but got discouraged when I failed the fourth time. I moved to Manchester and was looking for the best instructor for my personal self and Uncle Joe was introduced to me by a family friend and I jumped at it, my first impression about uncle Joe was not nice because he was too strict via the phone but we later got along since am the one looking for the knowledge to fish. My first lesson good comment from him (you know how to drive but you need to learn safety and ................). In a day I learnt all the maneuvering, then I got more interested cos with my other instructed it took me ages to learn all this and money as well. Uncle Joe was too strict for my liking at first, gets very angry when I make mistake and shout when he needs too. When I did my test the first time with Uncle Joe and I failed then I took him more serious and we became friends and did not worry any longer about his strictness, did it the second time failed but was very discouraged and angry but he explained my mistake and try to correct my notion of the examiner failing me, the third time I failed again but I clearly saw this time it was me who failed myself and not the examiner. Wanted to change my test center cos I was so discouraged but Uncle Joe advised I go the fourth time and if its goes bad then I can change my center, I yielded to his advise and went for my test this time around and remembered all his advise of observation while driving. Got my driving licence this time around with just 4 fault. Uncle Joe taught me and change my perspective on how I see examiners. Please if you are reading this just give Uncle Joe a try and am sure you will never regret you did. God bless you UNCLE JOE!!! OLA."  Read More
