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!


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!


He works very hard with his students and has lots of patience. He's very positive and works around you would highly recommend him he helped pass first time.

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

Have just passed with Ali and Drivers GB! Ali has been a great teacher and supportive through the whole process. Could not recommend high 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.


Highly recommend this company so supportive and friendly and make you feel so at ease been having lessons for a over a month now best instructors around had lessons with Nick and now Dawn both excellent instructors FIVE STARS ALL THE WAY


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.


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!


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.


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


If it wasn't for his patience, good humour and little hints and tips to general driving I don't think I would have come out of the test centre with a pass; especially it being my first attempt too! Matt was my first driving instructor so I truly believe the extra and endless help that he has


Pete was so good with me, very patient when I'd let my worries and overthinking get in the way of my driving! He instilled so much confidence in my driving and is the reason I've passed! Cant thank him enough!! I'll be in touch for a motorway lesson very soon!


I passed my test 1st time today! I'd like to say a massive thank you to Tony who really helped to build my confidence and taught me the skills I needed to pass my test. I didn't have much confidence in myself and really didn't expect to pass, especially not on my first time. I was very nervous


Passed first time on Thursday thanks to Martin Powell, loved every minute of learning with him as he made me feel at ease the whole journey, he felt more like a friend not a instructor. Martin even managed to keep me laughing the hour before my test when i was extremely nervous. Would strongly


Haydn is a very knowledgable disability specialist driving instructor


I would highly recommend Marco as a driving instructor. He is so professional, very patient and helpful. The lessons were fun, enjoyable and stress free. I progressed loads and learnt something new each lesson. I really appreciate Marco's help. Marco Polo Driving school is asset for Oxford's


Marco is such a great instructor, calm and patient and commited to being the best teacher possible! I was quite nervous when I first started but he was so easy to get on with and great at explaining things I soon became comfortable and more confident with each lesson! Couldn't be any more full


Marco is one of the most patient and motivating people I have ever met! I couldn't have passed my test without him. I was a nervous driver and very picky in my choice of instructor! Marco's is incredibly encouraging, calm and obviously a dedicated teacher. He is passionate about making sure


Having failed to achieve a pass many years ago after many lessons with a different instructor, I finally returned to attempt once more a month ago. From the off Marco built my confidence, which had been knocked by my previous fails. He was methodical and professional in his approach, but more


I have tried to pass the driving test for the past one and half year before Marco took me over, he is an amazing instructor immediately pointed out my bad habits and weaknesses, only 2 and half months later, on 1st Nov, I passed my driving test with only two minor errors, unbelievable!!! Best


I took my Pass Plus Course with Marco Polo. Not only did the course give me more confidence on the road, it also lowered my insurance premium. Marco is such a patient and calm person, he made the course fun. He gave me some great tips that I had never heard before. I was so glad I chose Marco


After a bad experience with a driving instructor some years ago, I was very hesitant in choosing an instructor. However, I'm glad I discovered Marco. He was extremely patient and allowed the lessons to proceed at a pace I was comfortable with. He was very attentive identifying weaknesses to


Absolutely fantastic driving instructor, Peter made me feel relaxed and confident as I progressed and stayed calm throughout all my lessons, he was more than happy to answer any questions I had about the theory or practical parts of the driving test. I would like to say thanks again for getting


When I finally plucked up the courage to learn to drive, I was really glad I rang Peter. He put me at ease straight away and I couldn't believe how quickly I progressed. I was also pregnant when I started to learn, so I wanted to try to pass before I had my baby. Thanks to Peter, I became the


Thank you very much for helping me pass first time, I have enjoyed learning to drive with you and would recommend you to anyone. Cheers, Corey from Hebburn


Just passed my driving test with Peter. He is a calm and relaxed driving instructor with all the knowledge you need to pass first time. He adjusts methods so they suit you and your driving technique but keeps them so you pass. I passed first time with 2 minor faults, first time and also passed


ABSOLUTLY BRILLIANT*** With the help and guidance Peter has given me I was able to achieve my Theory and Practical Tests first time. Peters school is affordable and reliable and Peter is a very patient and knowledgeable teacher and is a perfect individual to get along with, my driving experience


Great person to learn to drive with, calm, patient and relaxed, passed first time too! Would recommend to anyone.


Passed first time with Peter in only 8/9 lessons!! Felt at home with him right away, he has a fantastic knowledge of the test routes, which without him showing me I don't think I would have passed. I like the way he teaches in steps that seem to make things 'click' easily. Got my first car


We would like to thank Peter for getting our 17 year old son through both his theory and practical tests first time. We would highly recommend Peter, he is patient, prompt and professional. Once again many thanks Hazel & Grant Thompson.
