What Our Students Say About Us

Krista Sprukte

Krista Sprukte Photo Best instructor around! I started my driving journey in April and passed my tests first time today thanks to my amazing instructor Stuart Nelson! He was not only patient and professional but made me feel at ease and helped me build my confidence over time. He's always friendly, down to earth and up for a laugh. I feel he's prepared me for all possible life scenarios and I'm confident I can tackle them all. Thanks Skip!

Andrew Douglas

Andrew Douglas Photo I would highly recommend Kev to anyone considering him as a driving instructor. When choosing a driving instructor it is important to factor in that you are literally spending hours with a person in a relatively small space and in high pressure situations, Kev is exactly the person you want to be with when in this environment. He has great sense of humour, an encyclopaedic knowledge of music and a very calm, instructive demeanor. Since passing my test with him (first time), the techniques and tips that he has taught me during my lessons have set me up excellently to be a safe and knowledgeable driver.

Sam Hattersley

Sam Hattersley  Photo Dan Evans taught my son to drive. While I cannot comment on his ability to teach I can say how very accommodating he was when it came to arranging lessons on a Saturday after my son had gone to Uni so he could continue with the same teacher until his test. The whole experience has been elongated due to Covid and we would like to thank Dan for helping Sam through it.

Lydia Reynolds

Lydia Reynolds Photo I’ve just passed my driving test with 1st Driving school and couldn’t recommend Rifhat (the driving instructor I had) any more. He’s a fantastic teacher. Very calm and patient. Not only is he great at his job but he’s also a lovely, down to earth guy. I will definitely be recommending him to friends and family looking for driving instructors in Nottingham!

Lily Cragg

Lily Cragg Photo I’ve been trying to pass for a while now and had previously failed my test twice with other instructors. However with Kevin I passed first time with him with just 3 minors! Kevin is an amazing instructor and does not over complicate driving, and tailors his teaching to the individual. I would highly recommend Kevin, his lessons are always fun with lots of patience! Will miss our lessons.

Isabella Impavido

Isabella Impavido Photo I had a very positive experience on my test and very happy I passed first time. This is thanks to Libby my instructor who has been patient in helping work towards passing for the past 6 months. She is lovely to talk to and is quick to point out any faults so that one can learn from their mistakes and not make them again. I highly recommend the school and should you be lucky enough to be matched with Libby as an instructor, you should be thankful!

Sean Rees

Sean Rees Photo Adiel is a fantastic instructor, his teaching allowed me to quickly gain confidence behind the wheel and tackle driving in a busy city. He has a great sense of humour and every lesson I had with him was always a positive experience even when my driving wasn't the best. He has great knowledge of the highway code and how to drive correctly and can help you understand the problems in your driving in simple ways. I was very nervous initially and he put any and every worry I had to rest almost immediately. I passed on my second time around and was worried about getting back behind the wheel before my second test, but his patience and experience allowed me to pass with flying colours second time around. I would highly recommend Adiel as an instructor for anyone who wants to learn how to drive and have fun at the same time. He is a top bloke.

Kitty

Kitty Photo Kev is an amazing driving instructor. He’s super encouraging, and makes every lesson enjoyable. He put me at ease during me lessons, so much so they were the highlight of my week! I loved all his tips and tricks for remembering things - particularly because I was worried about how to remember everything. We also did several mock tests on the run up to my actual test which meant once I was in it, I felt surprisingly relaxed and knew what to expect. Passing my test feels amazing but I’m definitely going to miss having my lessons! I would recommend Kev to everyone. I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better instructor!

Ben Haggerwood Photo Over my time with 1st Driving School I worked with two different instructors Daniel Evans and Kevin Hopps. Both were extremely good, useful and comforting within my training and I would highly recommend the both of them.

Cheneaka Thompson

Cheneaka Thompson Photo Stuart helped me so much as I wasn’t feeling as confident after having a not so great start with a previous driving instructor. Stuart was/is patient, friendly, professional, supportive and amazing throughout my whole driving journey which was even longer due to covid. I would highly recommend Stuart to anyone looking to start learning to drive as he is a great instructor and I appreciate all the help and advice he has given me. I passed my test first time and couldn’t be happier. Thank you Stuart and 1st Driving School.

Lydia Verran

Lydia Verran Photo Kev has been so patient and fantastic throughout my whole learning experience. I never felt lectured, yet I continued to learn something new every lesson and he taught me all the way up to a first-test pass. The school picked me up and booked me in almost immediately after contacting them and I am so grateful for the school and Kev for accepting me and teaching me how to drive so quickly yet carefully! I always felt like my accomplishments were shared and have enjoyed every lesson. I would absolutely recommend Kev and 1st Driving School, very patient, attentive and supportive.

Reena Khirodhur

Reena Khirodhur Photo I'm so incredibly grateful to say I have finally passed my driving test with Adiel Khan! I had had previous instructors who I felt did not have anywhere near as much patience as Adiel did! When I think back to the first lessons I had with Adiel I was so nervous and scared to be driving. Over time, Adiel made me feel more confident to be behind the wheel. I used to tell him all the time I hate driving but I can genuinely say that I enjoy it now and can't wait to drive to work. When I wanted to give up, he encouraged me to keep going and motivated me so much. I still can't quite believe I've passed as driving was something I struggled with for so long. Thank you so much Adiel for believing in me- I'll never forget it!

Chloe Weaver

Chloe Weaver Photo Adiel has been amazing! I was really anxious when I had my first lesson due to previous bad experiences with driving lessons. However I felt secure and relaxed almost straight away. The objective of each lesson was explained at the beginning with goals being accomplished every time! Adiel was always on time and great every lesson! I passed my test first time with ease.

Emily Racher

Emily Racher Photo 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.

Elliott Collins Photo Adiel Khan taught me the skills needed, not only to pass my test, but also to be a confident, competent and above all, safe driver wherever I go, even in unfamiliar areas. I would 100% recommend Adiel to any new drivers. Thank you to Adiel and to 1st Driving School for the experience.
