I’ve had an amazing experience learning to drive with Nigel, I recently passed with just 3 minors. It’s all down to Nigel as he’s a patient, chilled and very easy to get along with. I was always put at ease and whenever I made a mistake he didn’t let me worry and tell me to just focus on all the positives that had happened during the lesson. He knows everything and any questions you ask he always knows the answer too it. Would 100% recommend driving pro and especially Nigel.So thank you Nigel 🙂
Went with driving-Pro, in particular the instructor Danny.I initially rang up and I had limited times that I would be able to learn, very understanding to my situation and said they would get back to me. They paired me with Danny who was always accommodating yet professional.I took lessons for 6 months with Danny and honestly felt like I'd improved after every one. He was clear, concise and informative yet also very patient. The biggest thing for me was the fact that I was made to feel like he genuinely wanted me to learn and then pass as a good driver and not just take lessons in definetly. After every mistake I was explained to about it and then we practiced the particular issue until I was happy and confident enough about it. I would recommend this driving school and Danny to anyone which I have been doing. Since my test I have been driving about and honestly feel confident enough to do so. 5 stars
Greg is a Great Instructor, always calm & patient, you can easily tell how expert he is as it's always difficult to train an old driver, he was able to pick up all the things I don't do right, and gave always a full analytic feedback which didn't help me to pass from the first time but more confident on the road too.
Nigel is a really great teacher. He was very patient & calm with me and helped me build my confidence and stay positive if I messed things up. I really enjoyed my lessons with him, feeling as though what I learned every week managed to stick in my head. He always communicated with me and arrived on time. We made full use of every lesson. I had just 12 two hour lessons over 4 months from my 17th and passed first time. Very good value and I would definitely recommend Nigel to anyone.
I passed today with confidence from my instructor Danny he put me at ease on every lesson and taught me everything in just 13.5 half’s I can’t thank him enough , Danny is just a cool guy easy to get along with if your thinking of driving I recommend him very highly 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 thanks Danny
I had an amazing time learning to drive with Danny . He was a brilliant teacher. He was very informative and helpful when it came to driving , and was also great to have a laugh with! I would 100% recommend him to anyone who wants to learn to drive
I had Nigel teach me how to drive and I would happily recommend him to anybody who wanted to learn from a patient, relaxed and understanding teacher. Nigel tailored my lessons based on how quickly I picked things up and what I remembered from prior lessons I had had nearly a decade before. Once Nigel felt I understood something and was confident enough, he would have me start learning something else, sometimes we would run through 5/6 things in one lesson. I understand that isn‘t everybody‘s experience but it’s a good example of his teaching style and how he was able to adapt the lessons based on my own confidence and ability. I passed my test first time with 6 minors after 28 hours with Nigel and a lot of it comes down to his teaching. He’s a decent guy and we had plenty of laughs and lots of interesting conversations all the while getting the job done. I’ve been enjoying driving my car for a week now and all the little extra tips he shared with me have stuck! I am... extremely grateful for how easy he made the experience feel and how quickly we succeeded. I hope for as long as he’s teaching his passion for driving continues to inspire new drivers to want to be good, safe drivers on the road! Thank you very much Nigel.read more
Had a absolutely amazing experience with glen he was so patient with me and gave me so much confidence in my self and my driving. He was so fun but very professional. I will miss our lessons thank you for believing in me .. taylor x
Many thanks Nigal Thomas can’t thank him enough he had so much patience with me and as I’m a older learner I have tried over the years only to give up 🙁 but finally with the help of nigal he helped me get a first time pass so happy. From not remembering my left and right to my manic brain lol he put me at ease and gave me the confidence to succeed if your thinking off learning can’t recommend pro drive enough 🚗🚗😄
I passed today with gav! Honestly the best driving instructor and couldn’t recommend anyone else, he is absolutely amazing and such a genuine person and I honestly can’t thankyou enough! even when I made stupid mistakes you still made me feel like everything was okay, gonna be weird not having you beside me in the car😂, thankyouuuu!!!
I passed today with Greg! I had a wonderful & positive learning experience with him, he was a wonderful instructor, I couldn’t have asked for anyone better! Many of my friends use him too & have also more than loved their experience.
I passed today first time with Gavin, I’ve been with Gavin since May, I cannot recommend him enough, so calm and reassuring and always made me feel safe. Even when I made a mistake Gav was always calm and explained what I needed to be doing differently. I honestly can not recommend learning with Gav enough, always pushed me to do my best.
I passed today with Gav with only 1 minor driving fault. Gav has been amazing for the past six months, so calm and reassuring and always made me feel safe. Even when I made a mistake Gav was always calm and enabled me to fix it without panicking. I honestly can not recommend learning with Gav enough, always pushed me to do my best even when I wanted to throw the towel in and give up and I’m so thankful because it’s definitely paid off!!! 100% recommend!!!!
Was taught by Nigel and would definitely recommend him. A very kind and patient instructor who is fine with sticking to a pace that best suits you. He gives clear instructions and helps build up your confidence behind the wheel making sure you’re a confident and safe driver. After each lesson he gives constructive feedback to help you improve even more. Overall it was an amazing experience.
I have just passed my test with Gaven and it was a really good experience. Gaven made me feel relaxed and under no pressure and gave me the confidence to get through the test thanks to his calm and patient methods. Thank you!
I would highly recommend! I had Greg as my driving instructor and he really made me feel confident throughout! He made things a lot easier for myself just by questioning every move I was making in order for me to understand the importance of driving safely and confidently. He also let me pick out my weaknesses to do extra practice on those areas. I also passed first time with him so I cannot thank him enough!
I had Jo as my instructor- she was absolutely lovely, I couldn’t be more thankful with help and guidance she gave me over from moving to her after my old instructor not being proactive. She addressed the issues I had with my driving over only 8 hours and managed to get me through my test with a pass and only 2 minors. I could not recommend Jo enough, she made me so at ease and want to say a massive well done and thank you for the amazing job she does.
I done my driving with jo and my God shes amazing I deal with anxiety and I never could off thought I'd get her but jo made me feel so comfortable with her she become a friend and I got a first time pass wooooo
I would highly recommend Glen as a driving instructor he is cool, calm and collected. He always manages to maintain a high level of professionalism that puts the little quirks of learning to drive into perspective. His friendly manner was just what I needed to get me through. Also if you do things right you might get a sweet out of it. 😀
Absolutely amazing! Was taught by Greg and the lessons were excelllent, always learning something new or improving.Greg was an amazing teacher and I would definetly recommend him to anyone that is looking to learn.
Glen is a really patient instructor and I cannot fault his teachings. definitely the kind of teacher you need if you are nervous about learning and he will definitely get you too the finish line. I definitely reccomend.
I would definitely recommend driving-pro. Gav and Nigel were very kind and patient with me. They were able to work around my busy schedule and believed in me. Now I feel more confident and relaxed when driving. Thank you so much!! 😄
I would highly recommended driving pro.com glen an experienced and very professional instructor being a person who struggled with nerves and had previous instructors having the right instructor was The key for me I always felt at ease every time I got in the car with glen because of his clear instructions an knowledge I believe is the reason I passed my driving test I rate driving pro.com 5 out of 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I would highly recommend driving pro to anyone who is wanting to learn how to drive, especially taught by Doug because I had such a great experience and I’m so grateful for everything that he did to ensure I passed my test with great results. Doug was always great to chat to, flexible with my busy lifestyle and always encouraging me when I wanted to give up (glad I didn’t!) Getting ready for my test as well was scary but was reassured and had in depth lessons for everything I needed to know for the test.Would always look forward to get out driving and had lots of fun in the process!Thankful for everything ☺️
I would highly recommend Nigel as he is very helpful and supportive and got me prepared and ready for my test. It was always a pleasure to drive with him and I thoroughly enjoyed learning under his supervision
Just passed with Greg and I would definitely recommend him! He’s been so supportive, patient and calm. Lessons were always enjoyable and he definitely helped me raise my confidence in driving! Thank you Greg:)
Passed my test on the 11/01/19 and just want to thankyou Nigel for all his help, he was very patient and also flexible with booking lesson.I would urge anyone thinking about taking lessons to book Nigel.Thankyou again
Mark my sons instructor was exceptional. Always able to fit my sons lessons around his college and work.Never doing lessons that weren’t needed. Very reliable, honest and dedicated to getting a pass!Highly recommended!!Leanne Gallagher-Costello
Recently passed with Nigel, and would highly recommend. He is very patient and helpful and happy to go at a pace which suits you, with insightful feedback throughout. The lessons are well structured, resulting in you been confident with your driving at all stages; finding ways to push areas previously covered to affirm technique.The car is kept in a great condition, the prices are fair, and the instruction is very clear and concise. All in results for a great learning experience, have recommended to my friends who are progressing swiftly.
Driving pro is a great company to learn to drive with. There website it helpful with theory test and their driving instructors are pacient and amazing especially glenn that has helped me and taught how to drive for almost a year. Thank you.
Absolutely brilliant, Glen took me from complete novice to a first time pass in under 6 months! Taught me so much and I was able to drive my pregnant wife to hospital and bring her and my beautiful newborn daughter home! Cannot thank him enough for his hard work and patience to get me through! Highly recommend him to anyone looking to learn.
I learnt with Driving Pro and would highly recommend. Not only did I learn to drive safely, calmly and confidently but I also enjoyed having such a positive, funny driving instructor to brighten my day. Thank you Glen!
I had taken a test after an intensive course in the north of England and unfortunately failed it.Upon relocating to Gosport with work I contacted Glen and lessons begun almost immediately.I felt a different kind of confidence with Glen, that I actually knew what I was doing and felt very comfortable when driving. I had very rusty basic knowledge which with Glen's help I was able to correct my previous bad habits, learn new and valuable clutch techniques as well as become more confident whilst driving and manoeuvring.I passed my test and do genuinely believe without a doubt that if it hadn't been for the better ways of doing things, the corrective adjustments to previous knowledge and the newfound skills gained from Glen, that would not have been the case.I simply cannot thank you or recommend you enough!All the best!!!
Learning to drive with Glen has been one of the highlights of the last year for me. I was always excited for my lessons each week. Not only did my lessons help me rebuild my confidence but they also gave me something to be very proud of, each time I made a small achievement, which ultimately led to a first time pass. I cannot at all fault Glen as he is continually patient and makes the car a calm and comfortable classroom. I enjoyed the countless conversations which put me at ease, and the way in which I never felt judged for making a mistake. It was truly a pleasure to have met Glen and to have been taught such an important life skill by a very lovely man.
So happy to have passed today, i know i wasn't an easy student but Nigel was an absolutely fantastic instructor, kept me focused and took all the anger of every mistake and turned it into a positive learning curve. really pleased with how each lesson went, every time it felt as though i had made an improvement in the right direction, regardless of how stressful my day had been i was able to relax and learn with Nigel, 100% recommended to everyone looking to learn and pass!
Just passed my test first time with 1 minor and thank you to Nigel, he has amazing and been so patient with me, he's an amazing guy very easy to talk to and a very good instructor. I would definitely recommend him to anyone. If you think the lesson hadn't gone well Nigel will always look on the positive side and will make you alot more confident and believe in yourself. He is very understanding in certain situations in your life and will boost you if your having a bad day. Prices are very good and definitely worth every minute.Thank you again Nigel good luck to your future and will see you around 🙂 xx
Nigel was absolutely amazing, I even chose to have him as my instructor on Saturdays I liked him that much! (He doesn’t work Saturdays) I am definitely recommending him to all my friends and family who are looking to past their test!
My instructor was Liam....very friendly, carm and patient. His techniques and knowledge helped me to achieve passing my test when I struggled so much. Brilliant instructor who gives everything to all his pupils to help you pass your test. Highly recommend him.Thanks for everything Liam 🖒
Had Mark as my instructor, and he was absolutely brilliant. Super patient and very chill, made me feel very comfortable from the first moment in the car (which was very appreciate as I’m a nervous wreck �). Got my confidence all the way up so that by the time I took my test I was absolutely fine with every aspect of driving. I passed first time today and am so thankful. Definitely recommend Mark as an instructor!
My experience with driving with Doug well I couldn't recommend you enough never not once give up on me and my little moments lol thanks for everything Doug hopefully see you on the road I will miss our weekly drives thanks again Doug
My experience of learning to drive with Nigel was amazing. I very much want to thank him for the time and patience that he showed me in my lessons, anything I struggled with was quickly fixed with clear instructions. I passed my test with only 3 minors and this was thanks to his excellent knowledge and experience in road safety. He’s very easy to talk to and I couldn’t recommend him highly enough. Thanks Nigel!
I cannot speak highly enough of Mark Parnell my driving pro instructor. He was incredibly patient, informative and so calm and support through my time learning to drive. Mark helped me pass my test first time today and I am so very very grateful! Thanks again.
Great experience having lessons with a experienced instructor (Nigel)with positive attitude who believe in you n giving positive vibes through our all the lessons... thank you Nigel for helping out really appreciated thnx ...(Sam)
I learnt to drive with Nigel. I recently passed my test with only 2 minors and I cannot thank him enough! He is very friendly, patient and very easy to talk to. Brilliant instructor! I couldn't recommend him highly enough! Thank you for everything! Keep up the good work! 🙂
My experience with Nigel and driving-pro have been absolutely fantastic! He was so patient with me, taking me from a complete novice, to passing my test with only 2 minors in no time at all, even though I'd constantly mess up my bay parks, he helped me get my references points locked in, and boom, perfect. He knows all you need to know about driving on the road, how to effectively handle a car and all the workings of the car, so any question you throw at him, he confidently answers with ease. Incredibly friendly, very easy to talk too, which helps you relax when driving. He doesn't teach you to tick a box to pass your test, he actually teaches you to drive, with skills you will use all throughout your life.Honestly recommend to absolutely anyone needing to learn to drive.
Had Nigel from start to finish and helped me pass in just over 4 months. Such a nice guy and gives many tips on how to drive. Let’s you decide if there is anything specific that you want to cover and is always patient and gives great advice on how to improve. He’s very experienced and driven almost every vehicle possible and I can’t recommend him highly enough.
I was with Nigel from the very start and he was patient with me no matter how nervous I would be during our lessons and no matter how many mistakes I made. He was always calm and was more like a friend than a driving instructor. Any bad habits you have, he’ll make sure you lose them before your test. You can’t put a rating on this guy because he’s just too good! He’s a legend and I strongly recommend him to everyone who wishes to learn how to drive!
Thank you for all your help, Glen ! You being so calm and relaxed on our lessons has definitely made a huge difference for me, allowing me to relax and learn better. I'll definitely miss your jokes ! 🙂 you made such a big difference in all this learning process, and i finally passed with 3/15 faults 🙂
Nigel has been amazing in helping me learn how to drive! After failing two tests with previous instructors, he really helped to build my confidence and made me feel like a good driver. Always in a great mood and his lessons were really enjoyable, he got me to like driving as well as pass my test, can't recommend him enough - even though he does use the word 'groovy' on a regular basis! Thank you so much Nigel!!
I learnt to drive with Nigel and I can't rate him high enough! He has the patience of a saint as with my busy work schedule that would quite often change at the last minute he was always understanding if I had to cancel a lesson and would try his hardest to fit in lessons around my rota. He has a great teaching style, firm enough to keep nagging and get you out of bad habits but always relaxed enough to have a laugh and put you at ease as well. Thank you Nigel for all your help and getting me to pass first time!
I've started my driving lessons with Doug as a complete beginner and was actually terrified of driving so it was crucial for me to find an instructor who will understand my fears and help me to get over them. Doug's approach worked perfectly for me as he introduced certain elements of driving in stages and made sure I was ready to face busy roads before taking me there. He was always very professional and very honest. Doug is what I call a good old school teacher, he will point out your mistakes and will say how things really are, but then when he prises you, you know you really did well. Thanks to Doug I've passed my test first time and will always be grateful to him for helping me become a driver.So if you're looking for a professional, experienced driving instructor look no further.
I have been with Doug from beginning to finish on.Just passed at 2 time yesterday,and still i cant belive.Very happy with every thing.Doug,he is a STAR.Brilliant instructor,i cant thank you enough for your support.I can recommended to any one needs a help with drive.Thank you very much Doug Drinkwater.xxxx
I have been with Nigel from start to finish on my driving journey, and his way of teaching allowed me to pass my test, even though I convinced myself otherwise! I am so grateful to him for everything he has done to make sure I pass this test. I can't recommend him highly enough, he has the patience of a saint but will tell you off when you need it too, which in my opinion is great! If you are looking for an instructor who will coach you well but also treat you with respect and have a giggle with you, look no further than this lovely man. He has taught me so much, not only to drive, but to also believe that "I can" Nigel If you are reading this - Thank you so much, keep doing what you do. Kind regards, Liz
I went though my test with Nigel and passed first time. I loved the fact that he took on board my own personal road knowledge as a motorcycle instructor and adapted his training to work with me. I had a great time being the student again and I would recommend him to anyone. A good mixture of instructing for test and for being safe after you pass. Top bloke.
For the past 1 year i went to Doug for my driving lessons, he has been really friendly and supportive for the past year. Because of him I have now passed my Exam. I thank Doug for helping me pass 1st attempt. You should really get Doug as a driving instructor because he will help you get through any worries and problems you may have. THANK YOU SO MUCH DOUG!! x
Had my driving lessons wiv doug from pro driving an what can I say. He was always very honest and professional and Ithe was my pleasure to have him as my driving instructor. I really will miss our once a week lesson now that I have passed. Thank u so much doug your highly recommend � x
Liam is a fantastic and very patient instructor who took the time out to get to know my individual needs/weaknesses and made me feel very comfortable and at ease in what could be quite a nerve-wracking experience. I thoroughly enjoyed being taught by Liam and am only disappointed that due to personal reasons of my own I can't go through to the test with him. Thanks Liam and Driving-Pro for helping build my confidence and taking me through the first few steps to get me on the road!
Just passed and would highly recommend Mark! He has the patience of a star, is really helpful and got me through all my anxieties ready for my test. Can’t recommend enough! Thank you so much! Sabina – North End
