Only 1 minor!!

OMG! so excited. cant believe i have passed my test today with just 1 minor on my first go too. Thanks for getting me though my theory and driving test on first go


Learning to drive with Vince was an extremely comfortable experience. The passion he has for the job of teaching pupils to drive shines through his work ensuring his pupils are at ease behind the wheel. This helped me pass first time with him and only had one minor fault in test. I thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with him and would recommend him to any learner wishing to drive. I am very appreciative of him and the work he put in to make me a more skillful driver. Could not have asked for anyone better to teach me to drive.

Vince has helped me combat my nerves and boast my confidence with driving! He is 100% supportive in all areas of driving and theory parts, by doing loads of theory test papers and mock driving tests. I didn't think that I would of passed my test if it wasn't for all of the support that was given during my driving lessons! Such a great Instructor would recommend to anyone!!

Great instructor! Thanks Vince!!

I think it’s fair to say I was an extremely nervous driver when I first started, but Vince helped me to overcome my nerves & stay relaxed & at ease during all my lessons.

Vince booked both my theory and practical test for me and was ever so helpful if I ever had any questions. He provided me with lots of theory questions online & supported me throughout the whole process.

I am so appreciative for everything that Vince did for me, and I couldn’t of done any of it without him. I therefore would highly recommend him as a driving instructor.

Thank you so much! To Vince. He helped me so much when I wasn’t very confident at the start. Vince teaches in a way so everyone can understand! I would highly recommend him to anyone! Best driving instructor I’ve had.

Sophie Brooks
Brilliant Instructor!

Just wanted to say a big ‘Thank You!’ to Vince. I passed my driving test over 5 years ago and had had little opportunity to drive since, so wanted to undertake a few refresher lessons. Over a couple of sessions I was able to practise my parking, build up my driving confidence and even tackled the M4! Many thanks again for your help!

Passed First Time!

Vince is a great instructor – very patient and supportive. I passed my test first time after only 8 weeks of lessons through the Summer holidays. Thanks Vince!

James Owers
Top Instructor

Andy Dunn is an amazing instructor, top marks to him, he got me through my test today, was always a couple of minutes early showing up for lessons and didn’t overly worry about the time whilst out driving. We had a good laugh together, and got on quite well! Very chilled out, just prompts or suggests things to tweak your driving instead of drilling instructions into you, he also makes you feel good about your driving and is never negative! Would definitely recommend him to anyone taking lessons!

Troy Moon
Passed First Time!

I had Andy teach me although I was never confident in myself and thought I’d never pass, I am happy to say I passed today on the first go thank you Andy for being my confidence and helping me to the end 🙂

Sophie Bellis
First Time Pass!

Had Andy teaching me to drive, he has the patience of a saint and would highly recommend him for anyone who feels nervous or unsure on the road. Always reassuring and telling you what you did right but would always go through any issues so you knew how to correct them. Couldn’t have asked for a better or more reassuring instructor!! Thanks Andy!!
