Couldn't have asked for better support, Nigel knows as much as there is to know about driving and will teach you so much more than just how to pass a test

Highly recommended

Nigel give me the confidence to drive again after 30 years. He is patient and provides clear instructions. He quickly assessed my weakness, helped me to understand how I needed to overcome some of the “fears” when driving and how to build confidence to drive better. I have now purchased a car and I am driving again. I would highly recommend Nigel.

Fantastic instructor

Over the years I have had many different driving instructors, and would stop having driving lessons for one reason or another. I am one of these people who is petrified by the word "Test" let alone taking one, so lack of confidence and procrastination were also a key factors in me taking my time to pass my driving test. However that all changed once I started my driing lessons with Nigel, he is able to make you feel confident and enhance your abilities as a driver. He was able to assess my driving technique very quickly and show me where I was going wrong and needed to improve, while also prasing me on my strong points. I honestly do not think that I would of booked my test without nigel. I passed first time after 4 months of lessons with only 3 minors, I would highly recomend him to all of my friends, family, colleagues and anyone who is looking to start their driving lessons!
