Highly recommended! Very good quality, my instructor Roger Fleming was very experienced and trained me to the highest standard which allowed me to pass 1st time, very pleased.
When I enquired about lessons with 1st Driving School I was put in touch with a local driving instructor the same day, and had my first lesson the following week. I had previously failed a driving test, but hadn’t driven for around 3 years when I was put in touch with my driving instructor, Roger Fleming. Roger is an outstanding instructor who trains drivers to the highest standard, and is very easy to get along with. He gave me clear and concise instructions on all aspects of driving and road safety, and the quality of lessons with him felt far superior to previous lessons I’d had. I am moving away to start a new job, and had a test booked less than 2 months ahead of my first lesson; Roger was fantastic at accommodating this urgency, and he has the skills as an instructor to ensure I was test-ready in this short space of time. I passed my driving test with only 2 minor faults (my own mistakes!). If you learn to drive with Roger, you can expect a comfortable, high-quality experience.
I have recently passed first time with Roger Fleming as my instructor. He was very helpful both in and out of lessons, as he would always reply to any messages or queries I may have. He always explained things in a way I could understand and was always really honest with his guidance. Overall, a great experience and a big thank you to Roger and 1st Driving School
My instructor was Roger Fleming and I could not ask for a more patient, kind and knowledgeable instructor. I went with Roger after being with a another instructor previously and the difference between the two was night and day. I started off as a nervous driver and Roger was extremely patient and spent as many lessons as it took to get my confidence up before we moved onto the next thing. The client led elements of his lessons allowed me to feel entirely in control of what I was learning and when. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 I had to stop and restart lessons in line with the government guidelines, however, the expertise and patience of Roger allowed me to get back to a high standard of driving in no time. I would highly recommend Roger Fleming to anyone looking to learn to drive. I thank him for all the time and effort put into me to get me to pass my driving test with only 2 minors.
Amazing driving instructor and I passed first time. Highly recommend to any one looking to start driving. Perfect experience.
Exceptional instructor. After 2 unsuccessful driving instructors I finally passed with 1st Driving School. Roger Fleming was an exceptional instructor who helped to build my confidence on the road. I am so happy to have finally passed my test and couldn’t have done it without Roger.
Roger is an amazing driving instructor and a great person. He helped me pass my first test with less than 20 lessons at a good level. He’s a very easy guy to get along with making the lessons enjoyable and different every time. I’m very thankful for his work and I would recommend him to anyone who wants to pass their test first time.
I recently passed my driving test at the second attempt and was trained by the amazing Roger Fleming. I can’t thank him enough and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to drive. He was always very patient and was good at boosting my confidence if ever I found something challenging and he will make sure that your trained to be a very good driver.
My Instructor was Roger and it was honestly the best experience, we had a laugh but he also was a very good teacher. Was always telling me where I’ve gone wrong and reminding me on what I need to do better. I passed my test 1st try all thanks to Roger. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants to start learning.
I wanted to say a huge thank you to Roger for being an amazing instructor, and the reason I passed first time. His skills as a teacher are superb, attention to detail is second to none and he has the patience of a saint. Due to his extensive experience as an instructor for larger vehicles like buses, he has an invaluable understanding and insight into how to deal with situations involving such vehicles which i found particularly helpful. Every lesson was always perfectly tailored to the stage I was at, and Rogers ability to spot where I was going wrong and explain the reasons why in an easy to understand way were outstanding. His car was always spotless and a pleasure to drive, and I felt at ease from the start due to Roger's friendly personality. The lessons were always really enjoyable, and I came away feeling I'd learnt something new every time. I will definitely miss not having lessons any more, but I am so grateful for how Roger has helped me pass, I cannot recommend him enough!
I just wanted to say thank you so much to Roger for all the time and dedication he spent helping me learn to drive, after having several other instructors he helped me to be confident and happy when I drive. He is a fountain of knowledge and finds ways to suit you on helping you learn how to drive and the different methods or rhymes when completing manoeuvres were definitely helpful. I would definitely recommend Roger to anyone who learns through rhymes and images. Thanks again Roger and see you out on the road.
Top quality instructor. Have no issues whatsoever. Roger was more than happy to go above and beyond for me and made the lessons enjoyable almost sad to say now I’ve passed I have no more to be honest! Roger mate, cheers for the last few weeks you know how much I appreciate it. Glad we made it 4-0.
I have been learning on and off the past 2 years. Roger has helped and been patient with me and has got me through my driving test. Sometimes I had hard days others I had good days but Roger held his nerve and got me through it. He is very good at teaching and explains what you need to do so I can understand things. A great big thank you to him and I will let other people know about him as he is a good teacher.
Fabulous experience! After having just passed my test I would like to say a massive thank you to 1st Driving School but in particular my fantastic instructor Roger Fleming! He really did go the extra mile to help me pass my test especially after I didn’t have a great start to learning to drive. Roger is friendly, patient and really does everything he can to make sure you feel at ease. Again a massive thank you!!
Fantastic Instructor! I cannot recommend this school enough, especially Roger! He was calm, patient and professional. Took his time with things that I struggled with and let me go at my own pace on every single lesson. Even from the 1st lesson he let me know how much confidence and faith he had in me, which gave me the confidence to pass! Thank you so much!
I really recommend Roger as a driving instructor! Makes you feel confident and points out the wrong and teaches you how to do it better. Honestly really recommend him, and a big thank you for teaching me!
I cannot recommend Roger Fleming enough. His teaching is faultless and he is hugely passionate. As somebody who has experienced worries and nerves about driving Roger never failed to boost my confidence, he was able to tell when I needed a pep talk and they always helped! Roger is extremely kind, patient and understanding and is keen to create a professional driver attitude in all of his students. There is nothing Roger doesn’t know about driving and the stories he has told me in regards to how he has helped and mentored other students is very inspiring. I am so pleased that Roger was my instructor and I know for sure that he is the perfect driving instructor. It did take me a while to pass and Roger never gave up on me - always listen to Roger as he knows exactly what he is talking about. His approach is methodical and easy to understand. As I said, I cant recommend him enough.
First time pass on my practical and theory tests, Roger was a huge help to that, bringing in his iPad to help with hazard perception practice made a massive difference to me passing my theory test. The practical side was also brilliant, very calm teaching and instructing throughout every single lesson allowed me to feel confident about the test and what I would be faced with. All I can say is thank you to Roger and 1st Driving School for all the help! Highly recommend.
Great driving school, great instructor. After failing my first driving test and having an extended break from lessons for a few years, I decided to start lessons again. Looking online I found a number of driving schools, but 1st Driving School offered some of the best rates that I could find, and I was able to start having lessons right away. The instructor that I got paired with was warm, welcoming, and extremely knowledgeable about driving. I started lessons in mid January, and passed my test in early May. I found that lessons moved at my pace, with Roger (the instructor) usually asking what I wanted to focus on, or working on areas that I needed improvement on. All in all, I found that this driving school, and the instructor that I had, presented me with the relevant knowledge, and a calm environment to learn in. Definitely would recommend this school to anyone thinking about learning to drive.
I wanted to write a review for Roger Fleming who I recently passed my driving test first time with. I would have really struggled to do it without him. He's a brilliant instructor and I would recommend him for anyone to use.
I cannot thank Roger Fleming enough! He is a brilliant driving instructor. When he first started teaching me I was extremely nervous and had no confidence when driving. Roger was always patient, friendly and encouraging which made me a lot more comfortable behind the wheel. I made a lot of mistakes due to my nerves, but Roger was always calm and supportive which helped me so much. He was always reliable and punctual, and he gave lots of great and helpful advice on learning how to drive. It did take me a while to gain confidence when driving, but I got there in the end and thanks to Roger I have passed my driving test! I would recommend 1st Driving School and Roger to anyone, terrific company and terrific driving instructor. Thank you Roger!
I highly recommend 1st Driving School, my instructor Roger was exceptional. He was patient and helped me with perfecting my driving skills. Because of him I passed first time, thanks Roger.
Roger is a phenomenal instructor, he's friendly, patient and great at what he does. I've greatly grown in skill and confidence when it comes to driving thanks to his lessons, would definitely recommend.
Today I passed on my second attempt and was trained by the most wonderful instructor Roger Fleming. It has been a pleasure to be teached by him he makes you feel so relaxed and he will go with a plan of how your feeling but I can guarantee every single lesson you will learn something new or recap the things your not sure on, he always asks what you do when you get in the car. He will make sure he fits you in what best fits your lifestyle so if your a busy working women/man he will work round you he has no problem with it at all. Nothing is to much for him and he will make sure your trained to the best of your ability.
After having a few lessons with Roger I soon realised how much of a nice and professional instructor he is. He is excellent at what he does and he really is a nice guy. I couldn’t of asked for a better driving instructor . I would highly recommend Roger as an instructor.
I would like to thank Roger Fleming on helping me get a first time pass. This man is one hell of an instructor. Continuously talking to you making you feel more comfortable whilst driving and assertive when he needs to be. Coming from a guy that had no idea how to drive, it's been a roller coaster of a ride but we got there. I'd recommend Roger to anyone. Not just a great instructor but a good friend!
