Michal with Driving test pass certificateMichal: ”Ghulam is a great instructor! passed first time with 1 minor. Very calm and friendly with a good approach to teaching and practice. Would highly recommend ”

Ashleigh with Driving test pass certificateAshleigh: ”Thank you so much! Tried and gave up learning to drive a few years ago so I thought it was going to be impossible, but I passed first time thanks to Ghulam. I genuinely couldn’t have asked for a better instructor, he was very patient and every lesson was tailored to make sure I was fully confident in everything and make sure I was fully ready for my test. He was really flexible to make sure I got enough lessons around my personal schedule and was a fantastic instructor! ”

Patryk with Driving test pass certificatePatryk: ”Amazing instructor, very good way of teaching which makes it easy to understand. Most importantly he was always on time and never finished lessons earlier allowing to maximise the time you have in the car. He had very good attention to details which allowed me to learn and improve. Only received 4 minors and passed first time and that is representation of how well Ghulam teaches. Highly recommend to everyone. ”

Nicola with Driving test pass certificateNicola: ”Ghulam is a great instructor. I had never driven in the UK and was quite a nervous driver and lacked a lot of confidence, he was very patient and helped me to overcome a lot of my fear on the road. I would highly recommend his service and trust you are in very good hands. ”

Tash with Driving test pass certificateTash: ”Thanks to Ghulam I passed first time! From my first lesson right through to my last, he was patient and flexible around my schedule. Not once did I feel like I wasn't progressing well. I even surprised myself at how quick he was able to teach me the foundations I needed to be a good driver. On a side note, his vehicle made the whole experience much easier. Learning to drive in a high-spec modern vehicle prepared me much more for what driving will actually be like when I purchase my own. If you want a calm instructor who's dedicated to making sure you pass first time, Ghulam is your guy!”

Recardo with Driving test pass certificateRecardo: ”Ghulam is a fantastic driving instructor and thanks to him I passed first time. He was able to shape the lessons according to my needs and timeframe and I couldn’t be happier. He will not only help you with all the tips to pass the test but also become a better driver. Thank you Ghulam!”

Gabriella with Driving test pass certificateGabriella: ”How lucky was I to come across Ghulam?! After failing with another instructor, Ghulam gave me the confidence that I deeply yearned for in my driving. He was excellent in dealing and working on my weak points, calmly, with patience and practice, giving me the tools to help me find my way. He helped me overcome my mental obstacles. This was extremely important to me. Driving lessons with Ghulam I always looked forward to as they were enjoyable, and professional. Each lesson was worth it and he was very dedicated in ensuring that I was comfortable with all parts of my driving. Improving each time, plus ensuring that I am a safe and responsible driver. He has an incredible psyche, and is an amazing being!! I am truly grateful to have had him as my instructor and could not have done it without him! Recommend him highly/especially.”

Dean with Driving test pass certificateDean: ”After watching Ghulam's somewhat awkward VT, I decided, this is the instructor for me, having to learn to drive out of necessity rather than desire, my mindset wasn't the most positive, I soon realised that I actually enjoyed driving and this was in large part down to Ghulam, his easy to follow instruction and ability to build a rapport with me, helped immensely, I was able to pass first time and keep a family tradition going, I would highly recommend Ghulam to anyone, no matter of confidence level, as I believe his instruction will get you to where you need to be, so you could pass even on your worse day (thumbs up)”

Luke with Driving test pass certificateLuke: ”I passed first time with 1 minor! And this is all down to having Ghulam as my instructor. Instructors I have had in past were impatient and unfriendly, Ghulam on the other hand was patient, encouraging but diligent in his approach making me push myself to the best of my ability and not mention fun to be with having a good laugh from time to time. If your looking for driving lessons, look no futher!”

Claire with Driving test pass certificateClaire: ”Learning to drive was something I had put off for many years out of fear. Ghulam is a fantastic Instructor I can not thank 1st class enough for giving me Ghulam as my driving instructor. His teaching helped me from been such a nervous driver to been a confident driver within a matter of months. His teaching of manuvores were explained in a way that it was easy to undertake. His ability to pick out my weaker points early on and structure the lessons so that i could constantly improve was amazing. The lesson were fun and enjoyable whilst still been professional. I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone wanting to learn to drive. Having passed my test for the first time, I couldn't have asked for such a kind, methodical and honest person to navigate me through the roads of London and to passing my test. Thank you Ghulam!”

Nicholas with Driving test pass certificateNicholas: ”I started my driving lessons with much trepidation. Thankfully, I had an excellent instructor in Ghulam who picked up on this and he gave me time to find my feet and feel comfortable on the road. His calm and friendly approach really paid off as I have gone from a negative mindset to feeling confident on the road. Ghulam was also very patient with my mistakes and using teaching and psychology to make me I improve where I was making errors - overall, he has done an amazing job with regards getting me ready to join the driving masses. He was very meticulous regarding safety and planning and left no stone unturned in my preparation for my test which i passed first time. Overall, I cannot thank Ghulam and 1st Class enough - I now feel like a confident, safe and responsible driver.”

My previous experience with driving lesson were awful and I was lacking the basic skills and confidence. When I initally started to take lessons with Ghulam I was very nervous about driving. Ghulam was able to address this and helped me work on my weakness and encouraged me to continue working hard at my driving. I was lucky enough to find an instructor like Ghulam who had a genuine passion for teaching and wants to see his students become excellent and safe drivers. He is a very professional and patient teacher who will teach you to become safe driver beyond just passing the test. Thanks to Ghulam I learnt many skills like safety on the road, importance of good observation, planning skills, awareness, judgement, defence driving and so on, which lead me to a successful pass. Ghulam is a dedicated instructor who has the passion for teaching, this is reflected in his dedication to ensuring that his students pass their test and become safe good drivers.
