Chloe Austin

Chloe Austin Photo Dean was an amazing driving instructor, very patient, easy to talk to and very helpful. The driving lessons were based around what I felt needed to be worked on in order to improve the quality of my driving and increase my confidence in certain aspects. The lessons took place on various different roads and different test routes in order to get preparation in before the actual day which made me feel a lot more comfortable and confident when it came to the actual test. Everything was taught at a good speed. Would definitely recommend Dean and this driving school to anyone wanting to learn how to drive!

Lu Li

Lu Li Photo Dean is an amazing instructor! After loosing confidence and hating driving because of my last instructor I decided to swap to Dean. Dean is absolutely amazing; he’s very patient, calm and reassuring whenever I made any mistakes. Dean is also very encouraging, supportive and made me feel at ease. He always made sure I was happy with how everything went and if there’s anything I worry about he would pick it up and practice with me. He helped me feel comfortable in my driving and because of him I passed first time. I will definitely be recommending him to all my friends! Thank you so much Dean & 1st Driving School.

Kavita Raniga Photo Fantastic, encouraging environment to learn to drive! Dean has been such a supportive, kind and patient instructor. He is very organised, has a great personality and makes sure that you are at ease. Throughout the whole process, Dean has been so encouraging and checks in to see how each lesson went. I value the fact that it was not just about passing for Dean, but to make you a responsible and comfortable driver on the road. I highly recommend Dean, thank you so much.

Kendal Slater

Kendal Slater Photo Passed first time with great help from my instructor Dean. He allowed me to learn at my own pace and was always supportive in lessons . He was easily able to identify and worked on my weaknesses in the beginning and advised me thoroughly prior to the test so the test itself didn’t seem new. I was fully prepared for the test and passed with only 2 minors. I would definitely recommend 1st driving and in particular Dean.

Tom Linford-Wood

Tom Linford-Wood Photo Went from no experience to first time pass in 25 hours. Dean Pigeon is an absolutely sensational instructor. Never once did I feel that I was testing his patience. From the first to last time sitting in the driving seat, he made me feel comfortable throughout. Would 100% recommend him as an instructor. He has a lot of respect for his clients and his calming pre-test drive put me in the perfect mindset to tackle the test! Thank you very much Dean, you absolute legend.
