Couldn’t recommend Andy Woodgate more! Turned me from a nervous driver into a confident one and believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself. So friendly and patient whilst still being very professional. Taught me everything I needed to know and I can’t thank him enough!

Recently (I say recently - it was actually June. Andy, I'm sorry this has taken so long!) I passed my test 1st time after having lessons with Andy, I could not have been more nervous starting my lessons - but I needn't have worried.

Andy was always cool, calm and supportive. When I made a mistake it was never a problem - just another learning exercise.

Andy's way of teaching made it very easy for me to ask questions and go over things that I was unsure of, and then in the lessons leading up to my test I was able to make decisions on what we did during the lesson. Which was really helpful for me as it meant that Andy didn't mind when I wanted to spend a 2 hour lesson solely driving round roundabouts.

I would highly recommend Andy as a driving instructor to anyone & everyone!

Thank you Andy!!
