Yates School of Motoring

Ian has been offering a professional and friendly service in the Wishaw area for over 30 years. During this time he has taught pupils of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to pass their driving test and become safe, confident drivers.


Due to recommendations throughout the years he is now teaching sons, daughters, nieces and nephews from past pupils. This has resulted in Yates School of Motoring becoming a name the people of Wishaw associate with quality and trust.


Learning to drive is a serious business, your life and the lives of others could be affected by your actions behind the wheel. Getting the right professional driving instruction will not only enhance your chances of test success, it will also prepare you for a lifetime of safe driving.
