Chloe: “ I had David as my driving instructor after my initial choice wasn’t available, but I’m so glad that was the case. From start to end, David was nothing but professional, calm and enjoyable company through-out my lessons. He made me feel at ease from day 1. I had to have a little break for a month and David was completely understanding of these and we took off right where we left after my break and I then went on to take my test and pass 1st time with just 1 minor. After passing my test, I only began driving 8 months later; but David left me with such confidence that I wasn’t worried about getting onto the roads again. If you go with David, expect to have professional lessons with a few “Dad jokes” thrown in to make the drive even better. Thank you, for always being great David, (PC) Chloe. ”

Kimberley: “ I would like to say a big thank you 😊 You are one of the best driving instructor 👨‍🏫 I learn a lot from you Thank you 😊 ”

Sanam: “ I did 4 months of lessons with David and found him good. I felt comfortable and able to relax in my lessons. Im very pleased to say, I passed 1st time. ”

Bethany: “My instructor was David, I changed from a differant school to first class and i do not regret it. He was patient and very helpful. He helped me raise my confidence as I was always very insure. I passed first time and this was down to David’s hard work and patience when teaching me. I have already recommended David to other people and will continue to do so. ”

Evie: “I am so pleased about my experience with First Class! When I started, I was really nervous and under confident, but David helped me to improve my driving in a way that didn’t make me feel pressured but still allowed me to make good progress. David is patient and relaxed, but also always held me to a high standard of driving, which means I am now confident on the road. He has a real passion for driving which makes you feel like you’re in good company. I never thought I would be able to enjoy my lessons to the extent that I did! I couldn’t have asked for a better instructor. ”

Sam: “David is truly a first class driving instructor!! It is evident from the very first lesson that David has a genuine passion for teaching people to drive. His wealth of experience and instinctive instructing makes him a great teacher — he knows exactly what it takes to get your driving up to test standard and will help you to get there quickly if you are willing to put the work in. He is a calming presence to have in the car so there is no need to feel nervous during any part of the learning experience, be it on your very first lesson, on the main roads, at roundabouts or any other daunting prospect. During the course of each lesson David consistently assesses your strengths and weaknesses. His encouragement and patience, combined with his tailored teaching techniques will help you to progress. David has the ability to explain instructions in a variety of different ways, adapting each explanation until you’ve understood and he is always happy to answer any questions— this is particularly helpful for the different manoeuvres. Overall, David is punctual, professional and witty and will teach you to be a driver for the driving test and way beyond. Thank you! ”

Mukesh: “I passed my driving test first attempt after taking just 10 lessons from Dave. Dave is an excellent teacher, very calm and patient. He assessed my driving skills very well and helped me unlearn some of the habits that I had from my driving back home in India. Thank you so much Dave for all your guidance. ”

Ethan: “Very funny and friendly driving instructor, patient and will help you succeed and pass ”

Ena: “ Learning to drive was something I had always been determined to do but had put off doing out of fear, David was the exact instructor I needed to help me overcome that anxiety. He is a fantastic instructor who is firm when needed but very patient, and he takes the time to explain and teach in a way that works for you. He also always has a good joke ready to ease those more serious moments :) David saw that I was ready for my test and encouraged me to book early which gave me the confidence to push myself with my learning. He is the main reason I was able to pass my test first time as he gave me the confidence and belief that I was able to do it and I cannot recommend him enough! Thank you David! ”

Jonilee: “ I'm highly grateful to have had David as my instructor. Not only was he patient with me , but understanding and professional. He managed to help me get to the level that allowed me to pass and was a great support. Would definitely recommend him to any student. ”

Josh: “David was a great instructor: patient but firm, friendly, and always cracking stupid dad jokes. :-) He had a really good understanding of my strengths and weaknesses, and his advice was specific and useful throughout. He knew when I was ready for the test and encouraged me to book early. He really helped my confidence by showing me he believed in my ability. We also agreed to practise more than the test required, including some motorway driving, so that I'd be ready for driving in the real world. After training with David I not only passed my test; I feel confident on the road, and confident that I'm a safe driver. ”

Darja: “Super driving instructor, very patient and professional. Can highly recommend ”

Emma: “David is really good! I’d lost my confidence, but David gave that back to me. He brought me up to test standard”
