bad business practices

Nothing wrong with the instruction but, similar to the other reviews, did not feel that he was fair about booking lessons. I asked for more intensive lessons and he said he could accomdate that and then just booked me in for 1 a week after I had already paid a deposit. He also was allowed to cancel these lessons but I was not. I never had any refund for the lessons I didn't take as he refused based on the fact I had already booked a test when I arranged them?

Driving test

I’m pleased to say I passed my driving test first time with Naeem. Prior to every lesson I used to feel very anxious and sick but naeem quickly identified my anxiety in all areas especially when I was approaching all types of junctions he made all lessons fun and was always patience whenever I made mistake he would always say “practice makes perfect and believe in myself”. Using his unique teaching methods and regular mock tests made me boost confident in no time.
My mum and auntie also passed first time.
I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to learn to drive and pass first time.

The instructor Naeem was very good. I learnt more within 2 hours of him teacher than I did with 10 hours of classes with another instructor. I would highly recommend using this company for anyone who wants to get into driving.

Amazing instructor! Naeem is very patient and will adapt his teaching to every learners needs.. I did have a previous driving instructor who wasn't patient and that really knocked my confidence but Naeem helped me with that and today I got my pass.. 😁
