What Our Students Say About Eric Machin

Daniel Remzi

Daniel Remzi  Photo My driving instructor Eric was brilliant in showing me everything I needed to know in order for me passing my test. I have been trying for years to gain enough experience to go for a test. Eric from 1st Driving School was the only driving instructor to show me everything properly and professionally. I can safely say I will keep his teachings with me for the rest of my life to be a good and safe driver!

Liva Narvida Photo Amazing instructor! This driving school is brilliant, they have amazing driving instructors like I had Eric Machin to help me pass both theory and driving test for the first time! It’s amazing, it took a long way but it’s worth it at the end. He knew when I was ready to drive so they would know when you’re ready if you want to pass for the first time and I went and did it! All massive thank you to him, he’s a good listener, he’s calm and he will help you with anything! Thank you!

Ashton Hearn

Ashton Hearn  Photo I passed on my first driving test with flying colours, I can not thank my driving instructor Eric enough for his dedication, patience and how thorough he was in all of the lessons. I would recommend 1st Driving School for those starting out and for those who just need to brush up. I felt comfortable and reassured all the way through the process and am over the moon with my level of driving. Thank you again!

Dolly Onafowokaw

Dolly Onafowokaw Photo I passed my driving test on my first attempt with Eric. I'd had lessons before with another driving school but never got value for the amount of money paid. I got fed up with this and decided to change driving schools. Got introduced to 1st Driving School through a friend and it was the best decision I ever made. It wasn't long before I realised that Eric was the real deal. I literally had to start from scratch as my previous instructor didn't even teach me to look at all mirrors/windows/over my shoulder before moving off. Eric taught me how not to only drive but to drive safely. He was always patient, friendly and didn't even mind if we overrun my lesson time. He was definitely value for money and will definitely recommend him to family and friends.

Sarah Cutts

Sarah Cutts Photo I had a wonderful instructor Eric who has been very patient with me for the last 10 weeks. I had a deadline to pass my test by and I have managed to pass my test first time. Flexible lessons when I needed them and extra hours leading up to my test I couldn't be happier with the service I received. Patience and understanding helps along way in passing your test.

I started my lessons again having not driven for several years and was unable to see past my previous test which I'd failed so had been putting it off - my instructor Eric Machin made me feel relaxed and was very patient with me and it resulted in me passing 1st time with him.
