 "I'm a 17 year old sixth-former in Bristol learning for the first time. With Will's patience, professionalism and fantastic teaching I was able to pass first time, and would recommend him and the driving school without reservation. I've been well taught, encouraged and advised from day one, and have never felt out of my depth: the lessons have been well structured and there is the perfect balance between practice, revision and learning new techniques. The website is also very useful and contains a huge number of learning aids to help cement concepts taught in lessons, while Will himself really helped me prepare for both the theory and practical tests with advice and questioning during lessons. All in all Will has made learning to drive stress-free, easy and fun and is a fantastic teacher who really wants you to do well, just look at the effort he put into the website to see how committed he is to helping you learn, even when not behind the wheel. A fantastic service that I wholeheartedly recommend. Thanks Will!"
