Chris, thank you so much for all your patience and encouragement during my driving lessons and for giving me the confidence to pass my driving test 1st time

From my very first lesson Chris made me feel at ease and with his knowledge and encouragement got me through my test quicker than I could have imagined. He supported me when I had moments of nerves and stayed calm throughout my learning, I even managed to pass first time! He is a fantastic, friendly instructor and I would highly recommend him to anyone


Chris, you’re the best.  Thank you so much, you have changed my life and I can’t thank you enough!

I can’t praise Chris highly enough. He took me from being a total novice to passing my test with no faults! I would not hesitate to recommend him.
