I passed with Mike and he couldn’t have been a better instructor if he tried!
Kept me calm in moments of panic, reassured me when I was doubting myself & he’s great to talk too. I’ve gained a friend from my experience!
I have just passed my test with Mike!
I was initially a nervous wreck and Mike’s patience and positive attitude completely turned that around!
Mike is super upbeat so even when I wasn’t confident in my driving he was confident enough for the both of us!
He was flexible with lesson times so I could fit it around work which was great
Couldn’t recommend mike enough
I had some bad experience with other driving schools but Mike and the driving academy are amazing. Mike was extremely accommodating to my work schedule to fit in lessons. I had failed previous tests and had lost confidence and enjoyment in driving but Mike was great at talking through any issues I was struggling with and asking me what I wanted to focus on each lesson.
I also had a mock test with Stu a week before my actual test which helped me calm my nerves and pick up on any problems I had before my actual test …..which I aced!
Thanks to Mike and the driving academy for all their support and my making driving lesson fun.
Chloe Carty Passed with Liam
I passed first time today with only 5 minors after being taught by Liam I passed first time He’s such a nice person and helped me to stay calm.
He explains everything in detail and gives you feedback throughout lesson so you can learn as your going. I was so nervous on way to test but he helped me stay calm An told me I could do it!
Thank you Liam!
I have just passed with Mike! What a brilliant fella he is, I was so nervous to start with and Mikes brilliant teaching style and fab sense of humour made me relax straight away.
He went out of his way to give me extra support and worked around my working hours. Not only did I learn how to drive I had a good laugh doing it!
Thank you Mike!!!
Carl Laura Ferguson
Can’t thank Carl enough, it’s been a complete turn around for me, he definitely pushes you out of your comfort zone but it’s what’s needed. I thought it’d be well into next year before i passed, I’m amazed thanks for such a confidence boost
Taylor Greenwood Passed with Liam
Well what can i say i feel amazing changing driving instructors and going to Liam was the best decision ever felt so comfortable doing my lessons and past first time with driving academy highly recommend them to anybody they are awesome especially my instructor Liam he is superb thanks again for all your hard work and patience cant believe I’ve past with you after only 10 lessons
Nothing but praise for Carl James! Amazing driving instructor I know Ive had a few!! Tried driving when I was younger then a few years back but never really had the confidence or tbh enjoyed the lessons. Carl made me feel at ease had a few laughs and jokes on the way and put the confidence in me to pass today.
I would highly recommend him perfect combination of laid back, informative and encouraging!
Beth Thompson Passed with Liam
I passed first time with only 4 minors yesterday after being taught by Liam. I couldn’t recommend him enough! He’s a really nice person and helps you to stay calm and understands when you make mistakes or forget things and simply helps you understand how to better next time.
His teaching technique is brilliant, explaining everything in detail before you attempt it e.g. Manoeuvres, roundabouts, one way systems etc. He gave me a talk before my test to keep me as calm as possible and told me to have faith in myself and look what happened!
Genuinely couldn’t thank him more for the time and effort he put into teaching me to drive and helping me have confidence in myself. Thank you Liam!
Thank you to my fantastic driving instructor Carl James for helping me pass my test I couldn’t even start a car 9 months ago and now I have passed I would highly recommend you to anyone wanting to have driving lessons you make people feel Calm and relaxed whist driving and it helps and your quite funny too lol I really can’t thank you enough for everything.
