Orely: ” It has been a great experience to learn to drive with George. After few months of unprogressive lessons with an independent driving instructor, who only brought me down and made me so scared of driving, finding George was the best I could wish for! George is lovely, calm, very well spoken and an excellent instructor. He is very punctual and serious. He helped me all the way to become a confident driver and fight my fears. I have learned very well and quick with George. It was overall an amazing experience and I am very glad to have pass after a few attempts (only due to anxiety) with George’s help. I could not thank him enough and highly recommend him to anyone! ”

Carla: ”George was an excellent driving instructor. He was very focused on making sure he taught me about being a safe driver for life and not just to be able to pass my test. It was very easy to tell him if I didn’t understand something and wanted to practice more and he was extremely patient. I would 110% recommend choosing him as your instructor because if I had to learn again I would do the same. ”

Julsa: ”Wow what an amazing experienced I had learning to drive with Mr George. After changing instructors 2 times, I finally found George in 1st class who turned all my driving lessons around for better. I can honestly say that he's well confident,reliable and trustworthy person who makes driving lessons enjoyable and safe at the same time. His teaching techniques are unique and easy to follow. I could have never asked for more ,he was just the right person for me. This new skilled I have gain will use all my life so it's worthy every penny and time spent. And I forgot to say that his prices are really affordable with amazing quality teaching. Me and my sister Carmen enjoyed him no only as a instructor but as a good friend. If you are learning to drive or wants to update your driving skills don't hesitate to book George as your instructor, i can guarantee you that he's the best. You will never regret it. I give him more that 5 stars cause he deserves. Thank you George I have passed my driving because you are an outstanding instructor ”

Hannah with Driving test pass certificateHannah:”I started taking driving lessons with George 5 months ago and passed my test today. Not having learnt at an earlier age and being someone who panics easily, I really thought I would struggle to learn to drive, let alone pass my test. However, under George's instruction I found my confidence and learnt very quickly. I found his approach methodical, but still tailored to my individual learning style. George clearly takes a vested interest in his students' learning by keeping up to date with the latest developments and keeping a comprehensive record to monitor student progression which he ensures is specifically reflective of the driving test components. I had tried a few lessons with 2 other driving instructors previously; Even though they were more expensive, neither were anywhere near George's standard- for me he really sets the benchmark for what anyone should expect from their driving instructor and his lessons are real value for money. I would recommend driving lessons with George to anyone without hesitation. ”

Carmen with Driving test pass certificateCarmen:”My whole learning experience has been so amazing, I couldn't have asked for a better instructor than George. I started my lessons knowing absolutely nothing about cars and driving, and George made me feel very comfortable throughout the entire experience. He was so patient and was always willing to work with me on my mistakes until I mastered them and felt completely confident driving independently. He also always went the extra mile to ensure that I got as much tuition and valuable information as possible, not just for my test but for my life on the road in the future. He's also so funny! My lessons were always a great laugh (and very productive at the same time) and I looked forward to them each week. George was also very professional, always on time and very polite and friendly which made everything so simple. Thanks to him I passed my test with 5 minors! I'm so over moon and so excited to be driving! Thank you George and 1st Class Driving School for everything, 10/10 would recommend! ”

Samson with Driving test pass certificateSamson:”George was an excellent instructor, a very serious and focused person who helps build your confidence with each lesson, driving with him has been a pleasure as he's teachings have helped me pass my driving test with just four minors. He is a friendly instructor who knows how to talk in a calm and professional manner even if you make mistakes which is an overall positive. ”

Daniel with Driving test pass certificate:”Great instructor, bee patient and always made to to make sure I was ready for my test. Would definitely suggest to friends and family. ”

Betty with Driving test pass certificateBetty:”George is such a nice and understanding instructor, very proffesional with lots of teaching material, punctual and flexible. THANK you for helping me to reach my GOAL and helping me pass the test first time!" ”

Mark with Driving test pass certificateMark”George has been an absolute gem of a driving instructor. He takes his job very seriously and is emotionally invested in the success of his students. Throughout the 30+ hours I had with him he was consistently punctual and he went the extra mile to make sure I was not only test ready, but a safe and confident driver. George is intuitive and knows when to push and when to go easy on his students; he manages this whilst maintaining a sense of humour and a friendly, patient approach. I passed my test first time with 4 faults: it’s a credit to George that during my test I felt assured and confident as well as supported. I can’t recomend George highly enough ”
