Paul Reed was an amazing instructor. He was very professional and informative. I passed the first time and it’s all down to him. Paul was very understanding, he was objective and encouraging. Thanks a lot, Paul.
I had Paul as my instructor, he was very good and accommodating with his availability as I work full time. He is very reliable and very professional and had a very friendly approach to teaching. I passed the first time with only two minors. I would highly recommend him. Thanks again :D
Dave is an amazing instructor, so kind and encouraging. He helped me to pass first time after just 2 and a half months of lessons when I had no other previous experience driving! I’d recommend Dave to anyone wanting a really patient and positive instructor. Dave helped me to have the best possible experience of learning to drive.
