"A good driver does not necessarily make a good driving instructor. What you get with Will is someone who understands the methods of teaching, the concept of learning and the importance of building & maintaining confidence. His calm & patient nature provides a relaxed atmosphere in which to learn and his high level of organisation & planning means that lessons are well structured and adapted to optimise your benefit.
Will's forward thinking, pro-active attitude is reflected in his website which acts as a vital tool for the learner to study & revise everything covered in the lessons. I probably spent as much time on the website as I did in the car, which really helped me to digest all the information and doubled what I obtained in return for my money.
It is clear that Will enjoys teaching as well as driving and I can not recommend him highly enough. He has an outstanding pass rate and I'm glad I could add to it by passing first time. Thanks again Will!"

"I was taught by Dave Allenby and passed 1st time, thanks to his patience and expertise.
I'm now 40 and had begun to give up hope I could get my license after having taken lessons with 2 other driving instructors in the past, then run out of money to continue the course each time.
Dave was exceptional in his clearly thought out explanations presented with a consistently calm and friendly approach. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone thinking of learning to drive. I am in the unusual position of having had several instructors and Dave was in my opinion the best. He aims to teach you a good driving style for life and exceed the test standards so that you're prepared for driving safely and with confidence after you pass. He has very well researched techniques for dealing with everything and is very good at explaining them. I am now inspired to continue improving my driving style through more experience. I passed with 4 minor faults, which I am eager to improve upon. Looking forward to my post-test motorway lesson with Dave now!
Many thanks to Dave Allenby, an outstanding instructor."

 "Paul Hanley was an incredible instructor. I'd only ever driven a few times with my dad so was nervous when I first started my lessons but Paul quickly made me feel comfortable to the point where I actually enjoyed the lessons. 
He's a very attentive instructor who chats as you drive making you more relaxed yet he spots everything: hazards on the road, mistakes you make, everything! He made me so much more aware of potential hazards that not even the theory test prepared me for. Paul is very patient and wants you to succeed and not just pass the test but become a safe and confident driver. 
Paul has a great knowledge of cars, test routes, and driving in general. I felt prepared for the test and any possible roads I might be taken on. 
Paul is very flexible with where you start and end lessons as well as lesson times and days making it easy to fit in lesson around a busy schedule."
