Customer Testimonials

At the age of 22 I felt it was about time that I got behind the wheel of a car. Top Drive UK offered me three 2 hour lessons a week, including some free hours. My instructor was very patient and supportive as he took me through the various lessons on the syllabus. I was very impressed with the pace I was learing at and knew this was due to my instructors precise yet fun tuition. Exactly a month after I began my lessons he believed I was ready to take the test - he was right! I pased first time and only have Top Drive UK to thank!

I learnt to drive with Phil from Top Drive in 2008. he is an excellent instructor. I found him very patient. If I struggled with anything he would explain how to rectify it as many times as you wanted! I would recommend Top Drive UK to anyone who wants to learn to drive.
