Mark Deas

Mark Deas Photo I just passed my test first time with just 4 faults and I attribute all of it to the excellent teaching, advice, patience and encouragement of my instructor, Michael Harmer. I had wanted to learn how to drive since I was 17 when all of my other friends had passed and were driving. Finally I took the opportunity this year at the age of 23 and am so happy it’s finally happened. I would highly recommend Michael as your instructor if you’re looking to learn how to drive, thanks Michael, all the best!

Ross Woodcock Photo Michael Harmer was my driving instructor and I can't thank him enough for helping me pass first time! With only 1 minor! Michael's a top bloke who is not only incredibly knowledgeable, but you can also have a good chat with. I ended up having quite a tight timeline to learn in and we managed to fit in quite a lot of lessons in a short space of time, much appreciated. I've recommended him to a friend already and will continue to.

David Smith

David Smith Photo I was 46 when I finally decided to take the plunge and learn how to drive. At that time, I did not know the first thing about driving due to my parents never having learned how to drive. As you can imagine, I was a little apprehensive about it! However, I could not have chosen a better driving instructor than Michael at 1st Driving School! He is reliable, punctual and his sound advice, easygoing manner and dry sense of humor made lessons far less daunting than first imagined. After a reasonable number of lessons, without any practice outside of them, I was able to PASS FIRST TIME, with sufficient confidence to now go it alone. So thanks again, Michael, it's been a pleasure!

Samantha Redman-Bradbury

Samantha Redman-Bradbury Photo I cannot recommend Michael enough. He is the perfect instructor for first time drivers, right from the start he was patient and kind but never let me get too complacent. He always pushed me to do better because he knew what I was capable of and he always made time for our lessons each week no matter how busy he was. By the time I took my test there wasn't a single area I felt unprepared in. Thank you so much for everything I couldn't have done it without you!!!!!

Michael Illingworth

Michael Illingworth Photo I did my driving lessons with Michael Harmer and found him to be a great teacher with a relaxed attitude and a good sense of humor. The lessons were great as I feel like I had learned a lot after each one and I would look forward to the next. In the end I passed with only four minor faults on what could have been quite a tricky drive. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an educational but fun driving experience.

Anya Spence

Anya Spence Photo Michael is a really good instructor, I switched to him from someone from a different school, and he made me more aware of what I had to know and be able to do, and he took me driving near the test centre which my previous instructor never did. Michael is very calm and probably one of the kindest people I've ever met. The 1st Driving School progress book was also very helpful, as it contains appointment details, a checklist of driving skills, and instructor comments after each lesson. My friend recommended Michael to me after he'd passed with him, and I would recommend Michael and this driving school to anyone.

He showed me ways to remember things and was very accommodating with booking lessons. He made me feel at ease and I can honestly say I couldn't have done it without him. So if anyone is thinking about starting to learn to drive then go with 1st Driving School.
