Amazing Instructor

5
Chris was an amazing instructor. From the beginning he made me feel very comfortable about being on the roads. The efficient lessons meant it only took 12 of them to pass. He is flexible and friendly, I would recommend to anyone wanting to learn to drive.

Very positive mock test session, would definitely recommend.

5
We booked a mock test for our son and Chris was very accommodating in location pick up/fitting in with college times and offering very constructive advice for moving forward with personal driving practice and with other driving instructors. We found the whole process very professional, personal , friendly and not in any way negative. We would definitely recommend Chris to anybody, our son said he enjoyed the practice, felt positive in moving forward, considers the practice advise to be very thorough and would like to book another session as it apparently went too fast!

Thank you so much for the review. It was a pleasure to do the mock test with your son and find some areas for improvement along with lots of great things he is doing already. Would be great to see him again for a follow up to she how things have improved 😊

Couldn’t recommend enough!

5
Chris was the best instructor I could have asked for. He was patient, friendly, encouraging and most importantly, with lots of experience, he knows exactly how to make you a confident driver with tips and tricks he tailors to your style. My lessons were always very productive and he always made sure any mistakes were reflected on and everything was explained in a clear manner. He is flexible with your lessons and very understanding should anything come up. His passion and effort as a driving instructor shines through and he goes above and beyond to make you confident - whether that be through extra lessons, or answering any queries you have by text message.

Chris’ knowledge and expertise led me to a first time pass and this shows how great he is. I couldn’t recommend Chris enough as a driving instructor.
