Customer Testimonials

Lessons: The lessons are conducted in an enjoyable, yet professional manner. You learn all you need to know about driving plus extra tips and advices. Instructor: The instructor is extremely helpful and motivating, and he guides a student through the different practical lessons in a very easy-to-understand manner. He upholds utmost professionalism yet at the same time makes the lessons exciting. Overall: I would definitely recommend this school to anyone who wants to grasp the skills on how to drive very quickly, and NOT have to fork-out large sums of money in order to pay the fees; very affordable! 10/10.


A million thanks to First School of Motoring for passing my test last 23rd March 2009. Incredibly helpful and friendly, they corrected my habits and got me in great shape for my test. Very helpful and excellent in lessons. Would definitely recommend First School of Motoring to everyone. Keep up the good work and best of luck in everything in the future.


I started taking lessons with First School of Motoring not so long ago and within 4 months of lessons with this School I was ready for my test and passed first time! I would strongly recommend this company for every new learning students as the lessons are thoroughly enjoyable and at the same time very clear in its primary objective, which is to ensure safe and practical driving on the road. Superstar instructor too!


I would recommend First school of Motoring to everyone. I passed my driving and theory tests first time. The instructors are excellent and let you learn at your own pace. As well as passing my test with them I also took the Pass Plus course and I am a safe, confident road user.


I was exceptionally happy passing my test first time round. Of course this was due to the excellence in teaching and the high standard of care and service provided by the First School of Driving. I would like to thank Mr Islam and thoroughly recommend the school to anyone learning to drive and hoping to pass first time.


I would like to thank First School of Motoring for helping me pass my driving test. I never sat behind the wheel of a car before and I was very nerves at first but with the help of FSM I felt very calm and comfortable when driving. My Instructor Mohammed Islam is extremely enthusiastic and friendly everything he taught me was relevant and helped me to pass. I really enjoyed taking lessons with him and they were really productive. If there was anything I wasn't sure about, it wasn't a problem for him to keep showing me how to do it. I would definitely recommend First School of Motoring to everyone. Im looking forward to take Pass Plus with FSM soon.


I have used various drivers from the main driving companies in Croydon but received the best tuition from F1rst. The tuition was very personalised towards my individual training needs as with the majority of the larger companies the drivers sometimes forget where they had left off from the previous lesson and go over the same thing over and over again. Driver was very articulate, patient, professional and focused on what needed to get the job in hand done resulting in me passing 1st time. I would recommend them to anyone. This is a great company and everyone whom I have recommended them to are saying exactly the same thing.


Driving is a multifaceted operation and with the high quality instruction given by Mohammed, I confidently passed first time with minimal minor mistakes. My instructor’s amiability has resulted in some very enjoyable lessons that have smoothly transitioned from one to the next. I have had a couple of friends that trained with First SM and along with myself have been very content with the service provided. I’d like to thank Mohammed and also thoroughly recommend First SM to any reluctant or eager drivers ready to begin their training.


I Had a fun filled 4 months of training by instructor Mohammed. Always on time, good communication and dedication to get me passed first time. For me the company did exactly what it says in the tittle. First.. will recommend to my friends and to anyone else who's looking for a quality instructor and wants value for money.


I am very happy with the standard of service. I had no idea that I would of passed. I was given excellent advice throughout my experience of driving. I would recommend this driving school to all my family and friends. Thank you for helping me pass my test!


Excellent level of knowledge and experience. Highly recommended. You can learn how to pass a test with any instructor but it's difficult to find an instructor that can teach you to be a good driver. Thanks Mohammed!
