What our customers really say!


Stopped learning for over a year as I just didn't click with my last driving instructor. I decided to start again after I was recommended Derek by a friend who had passed with him. Derek was brilliant, made me feel very comfortable from the very first lesson. Excellent teaching techniques as he made learning feel so natural. Would give him a rating of a hundred if I could. Passed first time with only one minor, already recommended him to a few friends. Thanks again
