Fantastic instructor passed first time

I would recommend Doxford to anyone learning to drive in Sunderland. Andy has been patient, calm and reliable despite the constant disruption due to covid, and his knowledge and expertise is clear through his pass rate. Overall a really friendly instructor who makes sure youโ€™re well prepared and experienced, couldnโ€™t have asked for anything more.

Passed 1st time! Brilliant Instructor (Andy!)

5
Doxford Driving School, and my instructor Andy, have been nothing but outstanding throughout my entire driving experience!

Incredibly patient and with a phenomenal understanding of the road and what youโ€™re expected to know, Andy has been immensely helpful. From the beginning of my lessons, where I was nervous and inexperienced, Andy was the perfect instructor to calm my nerves and teach me the basics. Equally, though, closer to my test date, he was outstanding at showing me how to improve and how best to navigate my test. I have no doubt that I am all the better and safer driver thanks to Andy and the team!

Always fair and incredibly generous, I couldnโ€™t recommend Andy and the team any more to anybody who is looking for driving lessons. The best in Sunderland, without a doubt!
