Azaan Zaki Photo I changed driving school and went with 1st Driving School and can honestly not be more thankful, I wish I was with 1st since day one as my driving instructor, Dan Evans, was an excellent teacher and really ironed out all my mistakes and ended up passing first time. Highly recommend!

Rowan Morgan

Rowan Morgan Photo 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!

Really makes you feel comfortable and at ease whilst learning to drive. Feels like you're in the car with a pal and makes your learning experience amazing and one to remember. Highly recommend this company, worth every penny!

Wunmi Ajose

Wunmi Ajose Photo Truly first class driving school! I want to say a big big thanks to Kev. I’ve been trying to drive for about a year or so and have gone through my fair share of instructors and I can say he has been the best hands down. I was able to pass my test with only one minor with the help of Kev. He’s calm, relaxed and genuinely a nice person. If you’re like me and make silly driving errors be rest assured that you won’t be judged for your actions simply just taught on how to avoid the mistake occurring again and for that reason I never once felt uncomfortable while in the driving seat. If you’re looking to pass your test stress free Kev’s your man.

Dan was always reliable, a great teacher and gave me all the confidence and skills to pass my practical driving test.

Lucy Neale

Lucy Neale Photo I can’t recommend 1st Driving School and my instructor Andy enough. Everything has been running smoothly all throughout, no issues with booking lessons and whatnot. Andy has always been on time when picking me up for my lessons. When I first started my lessons I was quite anxious on the road, he always put me at ease and made me feel confident with my driving and believed in me throughout. He’s always been very friendly and patient, also really informative and supportive. Thanks to him, I passed my driving test this morning!! Woo!!

Courtney Sherriff

Courtney Sherriff Photo I've had a few lessons with Rif so far and I can't praise him enough. He's been so calm and patient with me, has never shouted if I did something wrong and has always encouraged me to do my best. He always challenges me and tries to push me out of my comfort zone so that I can progress and become more comfortable. Upon starting, I was extremely nervous about driving he helped to calm my nerves, thoroughly explaining everything and always helping should I desperately need it. I've progressed far within these weeks, more than I initially expected and I can't recommend 1st Driving School or Rif enough.

Rebecca Thorpe

Rebecca Thorpe Photo 100% recommend Ashley Trueman. I started learning to drive in June with Ashley. This was my first time so I was pretty nervous but he reassured me and made me feel comfortable and relaxed. He always gave me the best tips and always gave me the best support possible throughout my driving lessons. 100% would recommend Ashley to anyone learning to drive, he for sure is the best and I’m so grateful for everything that he has done for me and taught me over the past few months. Couldn't have picked a better instructor. I would recommend 1st Driving School.

Samuel Grantson

Samuel Grantson Photo Kevin is Amazing! I had my lessons with Kevin, the best instructor. I've even recommend him to some friends who are now having a similar positive experience with him. Understanding I'm dyslexic, Kevin exercised patience, taking time to understand my learning styles and came back with an approach which helped me pick up driving and balance distractions in no time. He even checked up on me to make sure I was mentally prepared for the test. I feel so lucky to have had him as an instructor. Even after passing I know who to call on for some extra hints and tips.

Lakshani Fernando

Lakshani Fernando Photo Excellent Driving school and instructors! I am really pleased by how my instructor has taught me. Anything I wanted to know, she was happy to help me and answer any of my questions. I took my time to be ready and she has assured I would be totally confident before I attempt my practical test. I am happy to say that thanks to my instructor I have been able to pass at first attempt! I would recommend 1st Driving School to all the inexperienced learners who have never driven in their lives as, I have been taught from the start and, that is the reason I got on well with my driving. Thanks to 1st Driving!! Thanks for making me a good driver!

Sadie Malla

Sadie Malla Photo Thanks to Kevin I have passed my driving test for a manual car. I was struggling to pass for some time, especially due to my working hours but once I started with this school, Kevin always made space for me in his diary to fit lessons into my hectic schedule. Kevin is a really great instructor, he is quite experienced and has a very learner friendly car. He makes driving look and feel simpler, his lessons are relaxed, and he is always encouraging us to better ourselves in every aspect of our driving to make us safer drivers. For instance, despite passing my practical test, on the way back, he would be showing me what I could have done even better when I am out on the road on my own. He generally cares. I highly recommend the school and Kevin if you are looking for a driving instructor who knows their stuff, and that too at an affordable price.

Sean Hawley

Sean Hawley Photo So happy I passed my test would not have done it without all the help from my instructor Kevin Hopps. I felt relaxed and calm within the first ten minutes of being in Kev's car, very good and clear instructions and advice. He picked up on all of my faults in my very first lesson, feel like Kev takes driving instructing more than a job as it was just as overwhelming for him as it was for me today when I passed. I literally could not have asked any more from him brilliant bloke in general and amazing instructor. Thank you so much Kevin all the best.
