Aisha Sylla

Aisha Sylla Photo Can honestly say Julian Barker was an amazing driving instructor!! He was patient and kind and made me feel much more confident while I was in the drivers seat! Just passed my test earlier today and all I can say is thank you to him as he is hands down a great driving instructor and I owe it to him as the reason I passed today! I’ve already recommended him to a few of my friends as I know they’d be in great hands with Julian!

Jo Maris Mahusay

Jo Maris Mahusay Photo Highly recommended professional driving instructor! Julian Barker is an amazing instructor, no wonder why my friends recommended him as a driving instructor. It's my first time driving in UK and I had 0 confidence driving here since it's way too different comparing driving back home where it was right hand traffic. He made points for every lesson that needs to be tackled and provides feedback at the end that would build your confidence and improve your driving skills gradually until you are ready to take the exam. Always on time, and he focuses what needs to be done. Thank you so much Julian for time and patience you've given me, wouldn't accomplish this without you. I will surely remember all the tips and points you taught me.

Saffron Howell

Saffron Howell Photo After previously trying to learn manual I decided to learn automatic as I was an extremely nervous driver with zero confidence. Whilst before I had struggled to sleep at the thought of a lesson, Julian made the lessons as easy as possible. He never pushed me too hard out of my comfort zone and was always building up my confidence. He really went out of his way for me and was always reliable. I will miss our lessons but so grateful to him for helping me pass FIRST TIME.

Because of his previous teaching experience, he is very patient for all my stupid moments and always use different methods to make me understand how to drive. I'm lucky that had him as he is such a good driving instructor. Really super huge thanks for Julian and highly recommend him to others.

Amber Eadie Photo Kev was amazing, he got my confidence up and the lessons were so enjoyable. I looked forward to driving every week with him, and he was so calm and fun to learn with. I passed first time with him, and I really could not recommend anyone more than him. If you're looking for an instructor that is super knowledgeable, but also gets you on the road having fun then Kev is your man.

Ravina Raja

Ravina Raja Photo I don't usually write reviews. I passed my test last Monday, I had Eric as my instructor and he is absolutely lovely and made me feel comfortable, he is very experienced and tries to tailor to each student's learning pace and style. He is great with letting me know about any slots that have opened up for lessons and has been excellent working around my 9-5 job. Overall I will highly recommend 1st Driving School and most certainly rooting for Eric! Thank you Eric!

Regina Fullwood

Regina Fullwood Photo I just want to say a big thank you to Andy Kerr!! I failed my test last year in 2023 which I then had to get a new instructor, I was referred to 1st Driving School, which Andy was able to give me lessons as he covered my area. About me, I am very very nervous in test situations, not confident in myself, felt like I wanted to give up in lessons because I can’t stand the nerves but from day 1 Andy had full confidence in me that I will pass my next driving test and that he was confident on ensuring that I build my confidence which in turn, my confidence got better for the next test. I passed my test today! 25/03/2024 with 5 minors. I just want to say Thank you!!

Anju Gurung

Anju Gurung Photo It was a wonderful experience. Stuart, my 6ft tall driving instructor from 1st Driving School, deserves more than 5 stars! He's is friendly, humorous, encouraging and professional at the same time. I feel a bond already. Thanks to his effort (beyond regular) in getting me through this licence exam in the first go. I would highly recommend him to everyone around, if you're lucky enough to get the slots!
