Here’s what our happy drivers had to say about our services:

Laura review for Liam

Passed my driving test yesterday first time with 9 minors thanks to the teaching of Liam!! After having a goal of driving before I start my student nurse placement at the end of January, after just 4 months I passed!! Liam has the patience of a saint after seeing my 4 times a week at some points! His flexibility was unbelievable, especially compared to other driving company’s who don’t work after certain times… Couldn’t recommend the driving academy enough, fully supportive and understanding that I was itching to drive! Feel emotional that I’ve finished my lessons – best feeling ever x x x

Connor driving lesson review

I passed my test today with Driving Academy first time. Couldn’t be happier. Great instructors. Thanks to Paul & Stu for all my lessons couldn’t of asked for better people

Rebecca Review for Phil

I passed this week with Phil. Such a lovely guy, took time out of his day off on his birthday for my test. Made me overcome my nerves and gave me confidence. Highly recommend Phil. Thank you so much

Chloe Driving lesson review for Marie

Passed first time, only two minors, with Marie. Marie is an incredibly patient, friendly and professional instructor.

She’d always make sure I understood everything that would happen in a lesson and would ensure that I was confident and happy with my driving.

After multiple lessons with another instructor and feeling unconfident, as well as having a year and a half out of driving, Marie helped me get test ready in a matter of 10 hours.

I highly recommend Marie to anyone and I’m going to miss my weekly lessons, but I’m so grateful to be on the road!
Big thank you to Marie!


Had the best experience with The Driving Academy!! Paul was so patient with me and made me feel relaxed. Went in for my test today passed first time 5 minors all thanks to Paul for the support he has given me 100%recommend paul will miss r laughs but thanks so much for everything

Loni review for Mike

I passed my test today with Mike and I can’t recommend him enough. I’d failed twice before and lost all my confidence but he was so patient and taught me everything I needed to know whilst making sure I was comfortable and confident with what I was doing. Cant thank him enough for all the help and would happily recommend The Driving Academy to anyone wanting to learn.
