    positive review  Pete has now taught two of my children to drive and I know they're confident and safe on the road. He was reassuring and patient with both of them, provided written updates of their progress and thoroughly prepared them both to take their tests. Highly recommended! ....now could I just book you in advance for child no 3 when he turns 17 in Feb 2024? 😂

  • positive review  I would like to say how amazing Pete is as an instructor and a friend! In April, I had no clue as to how I would even start an engine let alone drive a car but with great lessons and hard work from both of us I managed to pass first time just ready for Christmas. He is a very patient man always thinking of new strategy’s and ways to help - he will never give up! Thanks Pete! Katie B

Real Learners & Real Reviews:

Many of our recent passes have been kind enough to leave reviews on our Facebook Page and we think that’s the most ringing endorsement any driving school can have. It’s great to be able to convert sceptical learners into confident drivers, particularly those who have had poor learner experiences previously. Giving confidence and teaching pupils how to drive on today’s roads (not just how to pass the practical test), is really important to us.
