WyeDrive was established in Hereford in 2006 by Craig Preedy. The driving school quickly became a favourite amongst new drivers in Hereford. In 2008, Hannah Bishop joined WyeDrive and then Janet Talbot and more recently, Nicky Jones. As well as teaching manual, Nicky is also our automatic instructor.
