I recently passed my test with Phil at the age of 31 and found his pace and style very reassuring. Very flexible with lesson times and availability and fit well with my full time work schedule.


Marco was an amazing driving instructor. He gave me great confidence in driving with his patient and relaxed approch.  He was really encouraging and made the lessons feel fun. He has not only taught me but also my other half! Would recomend 100%.


I would definitely recommend Mohammed to anyone, he explains everything clearly and makes you feel comfortable behind the wheel


A fantastic driving school, where I was tutored by Akbar. He's a brilliant instructor, who helped me to pass both my theory and practical test first time. An honest and reliable tutor who I would recommend to anyone who asked!


Always calm and collected with a thorough methodology to ensure you pass your test. I would 100% recommend him to anyone looking for lessons.


I first heard about Steve through some family friends whilst I was looking for a driving instructor in Brighton back in 2016. They couldn’t recommend him enough and as I had heard mixed reviews about other driving schools, Steve sounded like a sensible person to start my lessons with.


Thank u Alex for the lessons will strongly recommend this school!!!


Ian was my third driving instructor and the only one i actually liked, he makes you feel comfortable and the lessons fun. I passed my driving test on my second attempt with only 4 minors!! i thoroughly recommend Ian if you want to pass quickly and confidently!


Highly recommend SuperDriver and my Instructor Jaaf. I passed in my first try with very minor two faults. My instructor was really great as he was very friendly, punctual and accommodating. very professional as well.


I had Ian for my driving instructor and i could not recommend him enough! Fantastic teacher, patient and very passionate about his profession! Easy to get along with, and you don’t feel judged for asking silly questions. Passed first time and i couldn’t have done it without him!


Would highly recommend Jackie to anyone. She made me feel so relaxed instantly, she’s super chilled and put me at ease. I never thought I would be able to even drive/pass my test! She reassured me that I could do it! she helped build my confidence in everything I did and I cannot thank her

This driving course was very enjoyable and got me through my theory test and practical driving test within the 6 days of my lessons. I had never previously driven before and it got me from nothing to passing in 6 days.


I had a few driving instructors over the years which I didn't feel comfortable with. David foster is by far the best instructor I had been with, hes very good at what he do. Made me feel confident and comfortable around him. Which got me the pass I had wanted a long time ago. For that I'm very


A MASSIVE THANK YOU, to Tony chell for helping me pass my test first time. I highly recommend him. Have had a bad experiences with other instructor in the past but Tony proved me that there is a better instructor out here and that’s him. Without Tony I definitely wouldn’t have passed my

Darren is a very patient and courteous tutor. I was not looking forward to the driving test but I was made to feel as comfortable as possible. Definitely worth it. I can't thank him enough.

Absolutely fantastic instructor couldn't ask for anyone else Martin is a very down to earth straight talking person who listens and laughs with you as well as giving the best advice about driving and is very vigilant in his work Always felt comfortable with him and recommend him to anyone who


Great friendly professional set up. would recommend them to anybody who wants to get their LGV licence.


Never thought I’d ever get behind a wheel until my sister recommended me having driving lessons with Pete as she passed first time with him. Having driving lessons with Pete turned out to be the best decision I’ve ever made. I was a nervous wreck which Pete could see, he got to know me


Very good instructor always flexible around timings.


I done the 4 day course and passed first time, couldn't be more grateful for the professionalism and customer service that they offer.

I would highly recommend superdriver I had Rhichard as my driving instructor and he was so patient with me and helped me from not wanting to get in the car to finally passing many thanks learn to drive with superdriver


Had a fantastic experience, I passed both my theory and practical test first time and became a confident driver within 38 hours of lessons. Very good value for money, 10 hours for £220 is a great deal! Felt very comfortable with my instructor, every lesson was fun and informative! Would 1000%


After a bad experience with another instructor, Will built my confidence back up and made the prospect of becoming a driver possible. I was so happy when I passed, I cried! Couldn't have done it without his calm, considered approach to teaching. Would recommend him in a second to anyone.


Matt is an amazing driving instructor. I never thought I would be able to pass my driving test until Matt coached me. Not only is he an amazing coach, but he’s one of the loveliest people I’ve ever met. I couldn’t have done it without him and I would recommend him to anybody learning


Booked in with a instructor fast. Lee Everett is very patient and understanding he encourages to progress as quickly as you want and is honest if your ready to take your test. Really nice guy too . Thanks guys first time pass and a enjoyable learning experience


I came across searching online for driving lessons and found DriveThruL driving school and started learning with instructor Mo, he was a great teacher, very patient and know exactly what to do to build up your confident and help you to learn to drive. I had 31 hours with Mo and after 2 months


Great instructor, very flexible and made me feel very confident! Passed first time.


I would definitely recommend Accelerate. I took many lessons with Pete who was always up for a laugh and a very thorough teacher. I over-complicated driving and would let worries build up, but Pete always knew how to help me. I know I will be a safer driver in the future thanks to his teaching.


I had a great experience with How 2 Drive coming back to driving several years after failing my test the first couple of times round. I had lessons with John - who was friendly, supportive, accommodating, relaxed and professional and really helped me to build up my confidence again. I passed


Thank you so much for helping me pass my driving test, with out a doubt such excellent teaching and would highly recommend to anyone in the area.


Can drive provided great value for money. I did their intensive driving course and i passed my test in 2 and a half weeks. The instructor Wayne was brill and taught me everything i needed to know to pass and even more such as difficult roads and routes i wouldnt have encounted otherwise.


Mani is a great instructor. Very patient and makes you feel at ease straight away. He is very knowledgeable and was a pleasure to learn with. I looked forward to my lessons each week and I passed first time.


Chris is a top instructor and I couldn't recommend him enough.


Could not fault Licence2Drive in any way! I had Jaclyn as my instructor, and she was absolutely lovely! She really made me feel at ease and built up my confidence! Her communication was faultless and she made driving seem easy. I really enjoyed my lessons and I'm going to miss driving with


Highly recommended company if anyone is in question on who to use for there lessons. Highly recommend Rowland as he will help you with every little bit and won’t rush you either and if you want to work on something in particular before your test, he will do that for you. Can’t thank Rowland


Cannot thank David Kerr enough with the help and training I received from him to pass my driving test. After coming from a terrible company that i stuck with for 3 months and gained no progress, I was placed with David from One Way and I couldn't have asked for a better instructor! Would highly


Would highly recommended using Chris to teach you how to drive. Brilliant driving instructor. First time pass!


Faultless test thanks to a faultless instructor, can't say I ever had the opportunity to get frustrated whilst learning to drive because Rob made it so easy and painless. A real concise and simple learning experience that I would recommend to anyone, best of luck if you do choose License2Drive.


This company is fab. Both my children, Lauren and Harry, passed at the end of their course. Darren the instructor was very friendly, helpful and in the words of my kids "super chilled". The centre was well organised, helped with any questions we had and were really informative about the new


Mani is a top driving instructor. He's brilliant at making you feel confident on the road and pushes for you to pass. Can't recommend him more!! Always on time and not one of those driving instructors only bothered about rushing you back to finish if the lesson is running over.


I think Will was the perfect instructor for me to have, we got only really well and I always looked forward to my lessons. Will was great at identifying the areas I was weak at and finding ways to improve but also made sure I knew what I was doing well which helped greatly with confidence.


A huge thank you to Blair who helped me pass my test today with 0 minors!! He helped me build my confidence up after I dreaded learning to drive and stayed patient with me throughout my lessons. He made me feel comfortable and always assured I understood what I was doing. It was especially
