Theo: ”1st Class by name, 1st Class nature. Rhys has a way of explaining driving in Terms that are impossible not to feel confident around. He takes you step by step through the basics and gives you the skills you need to pass first time. I would recommend Rhys to everyone I know. Not only is he an exceptional instructor, but also an incredibly likeable man - easy to have a laugh with and will get you where you need to be. Excellent service. ”

Teneyka: ”Rhys is quite simply a brilliant instructor! He was professional and reliable, at the same time being friendly and approachable. He is able to adapt to your particular learning style and personality, getting the balance of assertive teaching and a little banter spot on, which is what you need! He taught me to be a safe and responsible driver from practically a beginner, and I passed 2nd time 😊! He builds your confidence when you need and stamps out any bad habits. Would highly recommended him for anyone wanting to learn to drive no matter what level your at, and even considering completing a pass plus with him! I will miss our lessons and chats and thank you Rhys ”

Grace: ”I passed second time with Rhys. After nearly reversing into a car (!!) on my first attempt from first time nerves, my second test resulted in a pass with 2 minors. Rhys is a great driving instructor, very thorough and offers competitive prices if you butter him up. He's also quite a character - you'll not be bored if you choose to learn to drive with him. I'd recommend Rhys if you want to pass well and be able to drive properly afterwards. ”

Tari: ”After having lessons numerous driving instructors beforehand, I had been taught various driving methods that left me confused. Once I began my lessons with Rhys he immediately developed a method that I could understand and I was able to build on the current skills I already had. With all of is help I managed to pass my test first time!!!He teaches you so much more beyond the test, in being a safe driver and having more confidence in your driving abilities. He is a very patient and professional instructor, who is very easy talk to which helps to make you feel relaxed during your lessons. I fully recommend Rhys as he will definitely give you the confidence you need to be a good and safe driver on the road and help you to pass your first time! ”

Taz: ”After failing my test when I was 17, coming back to learning to drive in my 30's was quite a nerve racking experience. Rhys was really understanding, patient and always put me at ease. His instruction is first class and thorough and he made each lesson fun and a relaxed environment. I would highly recommend Rhys as an instructor as he's approachable, professional and an all round top bloke! ”

Rachel: ”When I came to Rhys I had a lot of anxieties from previous bad instructors and car accidents, plus a few bad habits. I thought it was going to take a few tries and at least a year to (barely) pass but Rhys was confident I was a high quality driver, I just needed to trust my instincts more. I wasn't very good at explaining how I learned best, but Rhys was very observant to the point where he could tell if I was genuinely panicking and needing help or if I was just being overly cautious, I knew the answer but wasn't trusting that I knew the answer. As an instructor Rhys was funny, patient, kind, punctual and very good at keeping me focused (which is an exceptional talent to have if you don't know me). I passed first time with 1 fault and now plan to do the pass plus with Rhys too. ”

Jeanette: ”After having some terrible experiences with driving instructors in the past I decided to try learning to drive with Rhys, based on his testimonials, and I'm happy to say that they are all correct. Rhys is an excellent teacher who seems to really enjoy teaching and makes learning fun. He is extremely personable, with a calm and patient manner, which helped me enormously as I was quite a nervous student. I felt that I was able to progress at a good pace because Rhys managed to adapt his teaching style according to my abilities and needs and encouraged me to succeed. I recently passed my test, first time, thanks to Rhys's fantastic teaching ability and I cannot recommend him enough. ”

Naya: ”Rhys has been my driving instructor and I am pleased to say I passed my test first time with only 2 minors. Really great way of teaching - especially as I knew nothing at all about driving when we started! Really great guy too so I would highly recommend him as an instructor. I'm now going to do the pass plus with Rhys too as I feel confident that I'll the be able to drive in all situations, thanks to Rhys! ”

Lucy: ”Just passed first time after having Rhys as my only driving instructor. Through out my 40 hours with him, I never once thought of going to anyone else or giving up as I was constantly laughing and learning which really kept me eager to improve. He is a funny and calm instructor who takes pride in what he does, without being shouty or serious. He will guide you and make you feel positive, even when things aren't going to plan. I will recommend this man to family and close friends, with confidence they'll enjoy learning to drive as much as I have. In a way, I'm sad my lessons have come to an end with Rhys but we got the job done FIRST TIME and I'll be going back to do my pass plus with him soon! What a dude. ”

Alysha: ”Rhys is the best driving instructor!!!!! I have been driving on and off for quite some time but I knew I was going to be able to pass my driving test first time round when I met Rhys. He is cool, calm and very patient when it comes to teaching people how to drive. He's very straight to the point with explaining what to do and how to do it. I enjoyed my time with Rhys because he is always positive and encouraging about driving. I would recommend him as a driving instructor to everyone and anyone I know. Today I passed my driving test first time thanks to Rhys! Thank you for all your time and effort. See you soon for the pass plus! ”

Gemma: ”This time last year I was a complete newbie to driving, But thanks to Rhys I passed my test first time! He was very patient and his banter put made me feel more comfortable whilst driving. He didn't rush me from one thing to the next, which was good because now I'm confident in all aspects of driving. I would definately recommend Rhys to anyone who not only wants to pass first time, but have fun along the way! ”

Jon: ” I just passed first time with Rhys and I honestly couldn't have asked for a better instructor. Always on time, never canceled a lesson, always calm, explained things in a clear methodical way, made me feel totally relaxed in the car, pushed me when I needed to be pushed..... I could go on and on. I trusted him completely and when it is time for me to take my pass plus I will not be doing it with anyone else. If you are in the position I was in a few months ago, searching for different schools and different instructors, then look no further. I guarantee you won't be disappointed. The guy has got skills! Thank again Rhys! ”

Teesha: ”I can't even put into words how great Rhys has been as an instructor. He is the absolute BEST! He was so patient with me and always so encouraging. He knows how to have a great laugh which put me at ease whilst driving and was really good to talk to. Don't get me wrong he was very serious when it come to driving but knew how to deal with me in a nice manner where I gained experience and enjoyed learning. I have been recommending him to family and friends and would recommend him to anyone looking to learn with a fantastic instructor. Just overall genuine and friendly guy. I so happy I started driving with him & passing my test wouldn't have been possible without him. I could go on forever on how great he is but I think everyone should go find out for themselves. You will not be disappointed! ... Rhys thank you once again it was a pleasure learning to drive with you xxx ”

Siri: ”I have been learning to drive with Rhys for the past year and I am happy to say I have just PASSED with NO MINORS!! Rhys is an amazing instructor who is very patient and understanding. He truly made me feel at ease behind the wheel, which I certainly wasn't during my first few weeks. Rhys really tailored my lessons to suit my needs and abilities and I felt like I have been supported all the way through. I cannot recommend Rhys highly enough to anyone who is looking for an instructor. I have already recommended him to family and friends. Rhys makes you feel relaxed in the car whilst helping you to improve quickly with each lesson you have. As I am a nervous driver with little confidence, being able to pass my test with no minors has been an amazing experience which I never thought I would achieve. If it wasn’t for Rhys I would probably still be too nervous to even try! I also felt like he really pushed me when I needed it which helped me be up to the highest standard for my test. On top of this he is a very friendly and welcoming person who I will be sad to no longer see on a weekly basis. I just want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH RHYS!! ”

Flora: ”Rhys has been a fantastic instructor, his approach is so clear and he is patient and considerate. He has a methodical and well thought out way of taking students through the process and adapts his way of teaching to suit each student. I am not a natural driver and have stopped and started with lessons and instructors in the past, but after lessons with Rhys I now feel confident and calm about being on the road. I can't recommend him highly enough. ”

Bruce: ”After passing my test last week at my first attempt in ten years, I can safely say Rhys is a top drawer driving instructor. Rhys is highly knowledgeable about the area and test centre routes, was patient, laid back, had some great tips to radically improve my driving and is a great laugh too. Thanks again for your help Rhys. ”

Lilly: ”I would like to say what a brilliant instructor Rhys was. I had a previous instructor with a different school but felt I wasnt learning anything,and it wasnt until I had my first lesson with Rhys that I realised I hadn't learnt anything. Right from the first lesson he put me at ease, he was on time every time, and I got the full lesson. I cannot praise him enough. He really is a first class teacher. Thank you so much. ”

Rebecca: ”Rhys is the BEST driving instructor ever! He made me feel comfortable while I was learning, he is patient, laid back and is a great teacher! He saw my potential and believed in my ability more than I did. He encouraged me and trained me up well and as a result of this I PASSED FIRST TIME!!!!🎉🎉🎉 I am now (10 weeks later) a very confident driver and have even been confident enough to drive on a few motorways already which I thought I'd never be able to do! I owe this all to Rhys, couldn't have done it without him and I would recommend him to anyone who is aiming to achieve the best results! ”

Amy: ” A few months ago I had never driven a car before and was very nervous about learning to drive. Rhys was very patient with me and put me at ease, just passed my test first time! Thanks Rhys! ”

Saman: ” I had the pleasure of being instructed by Ryes and with his help I managed to pass my test on the first time. Ryes is Patient, supporting, and did a great job preparing me for the test in a short amount of time. He also has great personality, excellent instructing skills and method, and he is great to work with. All I had to do to get my driving license was to trust him, listen to what he says, let him prepare me for everything I needed for the test, and the rest is the story of a successful experience. Thank you Ryes, It was a great pleasure... ”

Zoe: ”Rhys would ensure that your driving at a level that is required for not only passing the test, but beyond that for the remainder of your life. ”

Maz: ”I passed my driving test first time round. Thanks to Rhys he understood what I was doing wrong and showed me how to drive well leaving me prepared for my exam. I went in knowing I was going to do well due to the confidence he had in me and how prepared I was. Out of all the instructors I've had Rhys is the best by far. ”

Jeri: ”Just passed my test yesterday. Rhys has done a super job at teaching me how to drive, i would quite frankly recommend him to anyone who wants to become a great and safe driver........ ”

Megan: ”By far the best instructor I've had (and I've had about 4) he made me feel relaxed and comfortable driving. He's easy going and very funny. So glad I got put with him! Also passed first time woo hoo!! ”

Emilie: ” I am so glad I went with Rhys for my lessons. I could always guarantee to learn alot but at my own pace, whilst having an absolute laugh and feeling relaxed. It kind of felt like an old friend was teaching me to drive, and we ended up just driving and talking, which really put me at ease. Thanks so much ”

Nela: ”I had a very good experience with Rhys - he helped me break all my bad American driving habits and I finally could drive a stick shift which I thought may be impossible! He's very patient and a very knowledgeable instructor. Additionally, if you have to spend 2 hours a week in the car with someone, you won't get bored with the small talk! ”

Dwain: ”I started my lessons with Rhys back in September and I must say he is a very good instructor. If you are learning how to drive and you want a good instructor I would strongly recommend Rhys. He teaches very well and he makes you feel comfortable, you'll also cover a lot in just one lesson. 3 months later I had passed my test first time at Hither Green. Get driving with Rhys. BIG thanks to you Rhys! ”

Rosabelle: ”I passed my driving test yesterday second try thanks to Rhys and all his hard work I am especially grateful for how much effort and patience he had throughout the time teaching me how to become a pro driver lol, I would definatly recommend him to friends and family etc as I think his knowledge and experience of driving is fantastic, prime example I broke my hand and didn't drive for 4 months, my test was due and within a month after 8 lessons took my test and successfully passed with 4 minors. He was very sportive and helped boost my confidence, it's a day of my life I would never forget thanks to a great instructor. THANK YOU! ”

Jermaine Pryce: ”I started my driving lessons with Rhys back in February 2013. I had taken some lessons quite a few years back, but as I had not stepped behind the wheel since then, I was essentially a novice. I very quickly built up a good rapport with Rhys, and this really helps when learning to drive as he put me at such ease when behind the wheel as I initially had no confidence. He has a very keen eye for detail and wanting his students to master the basics. By doing so I was able to make very rapid progress. After taking a double lesson each week, by April I had booked my practical test, and in May 2013 I passed at my very first attempt in Hither Green! I owe this entirely down to the way Rhys taught and guided me through my lessons; pushing and having faith in me when needed, but also having the time and patience when I wanted to perfect some of the manoeuvres and talk through driving scenarios. Without question he is a top instructor and on a personal level, he is a great guy - very friendly and professional. He is highly recommended to anyone who is embarking on a journey to become an excellent and safe driver. ”

Jessey Hamilton “My first driving lesson with him and I think he is great! Made me feel so relaxed and at ease. So happy that he is my driving instructor. “
