About WyeDrive

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. Between us we have over 40 years of driving instruction experience. All WyeDrive instructors meet regularly to share best practice and are committed to continual professional development. Some of our WyeDrive instructors have also passed the RoSPA Advanced Driving Test and are Fleet Registered Instructors. Look below to find out a little more about each instructor and for an image of the cars that they use. There is a contact button under each one

To offer paid instruction all driving Instructors must take and pass 3 challenging qualifying exams

Your driving instructor must display, or be able to show you a valid instructor licence

All driving instructors are self employed,  even those that work for larger schools.

All driving instructors follow the code of conduct set out by the DVSA and are also subject to DBS checks and regular standards checks.

Meet The Instructors

New to our fleet is an automatic.

This is something that WyeDrive has been asked about a great deal over the years and now the time seems right.

Auto is especially good for people who struggle with the gear changing.
