I found Gary to be a really calm and patient instructor who I got on with really well, which helps a great deal when learning to drive. A really good instructor who helped pass first time. I would definitely recommend.

Gary was my instructor from Bradley's, he was absolutely amazing. He went above and beyond to help me pass my driving test. Everything was explained in a calm and detailed manor. His teaching methods were excellent as he would always have you finishing on a positive note rather than a negative one, even after you had done something wrong. 100% better than my previous instructor. Highly recommend.

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
