What our customers really say!


After failing driving tests elsewhere and not liking the instructor's way of teaching, I decided to ring Bradley's as I've  heard really good things. I was assigned Derek and could not ask for a better instructor! I wasn't very confident in driving but Derek is a very professional and patient instructor who has various great learning techniques. Any time errors happened, we always went through the thought process of the error in detail making me think about why each mistake that happened and coming up with the solution myself, repeating the actions if necessary until it was perfect. This grew my confidence in driving loads, especially when making fast decisions, which in the past I used to stress about! Overall could not have been better and I am very thankful for my experience. I would definitely rate him with five stars and would recommend him to anyone! Thank  you for everything, Gabriella  πŸ˜

I decided to change to Steve from Bradley's after I was recommended by a mate. I changed driving instructors from another driving school because I didn't like the instructors way of teaching. Steve was a lot better, very professional and explained everything really clearly. Steve would always point out any errors and was always ready with a solution to remedy them.

That’s an astonishing 49 Zero Faults!

OMG! Another clean sheet this week.  Congratulations to Joe Morgan from West Cornforth near County Durham who passed his practical driving test FIRST TIME with a CLEAN SHEET on the 12th October at the Meadowfield  test centre in County Durham. We think Joe's parents need to take the credit for this one as Joe only needed six hour hours for some fine tuning. Our methods really do work and this strikes home why we think we are your No 1 choice for driving lessons.  

Congratulations to Driving instructor Kenneth Smith and his client Joe Morgan on taking our CLEAN SHEET TOTAL TO AN ASTONISHING 49 ZERO FAULT TEST PASSES
