Rowan Morgan

Rowan Morgan Photo I wanted to say a huge thank you to Roger for being an amazing instructor, and the reason I passed first time. His skills as a teacher are superb, attention to detail is second to none and he has the patience of a saint. Due to his extensive experience as an instructor for larger vehicles like buses, he has an invaluable understanding and insight into how to deal with situations involving such vehicles which i found particularly helpful. Every lesson was always perfectly tailored to the stage I was at, and Rogers ability to spot where I was going wrong and explain the reasons why in an easy to understand way were outstanding. His car was always spotless and a pleasure to drive, and I felt at ease from the start due to Roger's friendly personality. The lessons were always really enjoyable, and I came away feeling I'd learnt something new every time. I will definitely miss not having lessons any more, but I am so grateful for how Roger has helped me pass, I cannot recommend him enough!

Wunmi Ajose

Wunmi Ajose Photo Truly first class driving school! I want to say a big big thanks to Kev. I’ve been trying to drive for about a year or so and have gone through my fair share of instructors and I can say he has been the best hands down. I was able to pass my test with only one minor with the help of Kev. He’s calm, relaxed and genuinely a nice person. If you’re like me and make silly driving errors be rest assured that you won’t be judged for your actions simply just taught on how to avoid the mistake occurring again and for that reason I never once felt uncomfortable while in the driving seat. If you’re looking to pass your test stress free Kev’s your man.

Dan was always reliable, a great teacher and gave me all the confidence and skills to pass my practical driving test. I was always kept up to date with the driving app which gave you an updated report on driving skills. Thank you for everything, would 100% recommend to anybody wanting to learn to drive.

Lucy Neale

Lucy Neale Photo I can’t recommend 1st Driving School and my instructor Andy enough. Everything has been running smoothly all throughout, no issues with booking lessons and whatnot. Andy has always been on time when picking me up for my lessons. When I first started my lessons I was quite anxious on the road, he always put me at ease and made me feel confident with my driving and believed in me throughout. He’s always been very friendly and patient, also really informative and supportive. Thanks to him, I passed my driving test this morning!! Woo!!

Courtney Sherriff

Courtney Sherriff Photo I've had a few lessons with Rif so far and I can't praise him enough. He's been so calm and patient with me, has never shouted if I did something wrong and has always encouraged me to do my best. He always challenges me and tries to push me out of my comfort zone so that I can progress and become more comfortable. Upon starting, I was extremely nervous about driving he helped to calm my nerves, thoroughly explaining everything and always helping should I desperately need it. I've progressed far within these weeks, more than I initially expected and I can't recommend 1st Driving School or Rif enough.

Rebecca Thorpe

Rebecca Thorpe Photo 100% recommend Ashley Trueman. I started learning to drive in June with Ashley. This was my first time so I was pretty nervous but he reassured me and made me feel comfortable and relaxed. He always gave me the best tips and always gave me the best support possible throughout my driving lessons. 100% would recommend Ashley to anyone learning to drive, he for sure is the best and I’m so grateful for everything that he has done for me and taught me over the past few months. Couldn't have picked a better instructor. I would recommend 1st Driving School.

Samuel Grantson

Samuel Grantson Photo Kevin is Amazing! I had my lessons with Kevin, the best instructor. I've even recommend him to some friends who are now having a similar positive experience with him. Understanding I'm dyslexic, Kevin exercised patience, taking time to understand my learning styles and came back with an approach which helped me pick up driving and balance distractions in no time. He even checked up on me to make sure I was mentally prepared for the test. I feel so lucky to have had him as an instructor. Even after passing I know who to call on for some extra hints and tips.
