“I highly recommend Phil, he is a great driving instructor and so encouraging and patient. I managed to pass first time and I couldn’t have done it without Phil.”

The thought of getting behind the wheel of a car did not appeal to me at all, at first it scared me. After just a couple of lessons with Phil, I already felt relaxed and ready to learn! He was very patient with me and has a magic way of explaining things that just makes sense. He was always calm and professional, which in turn kept me calm. Even after a long break in lessons due to the pandemic, he was able to ease me back comfortably into driving as quickly as one week before my test. I had almost zero expectations that I would pass first time, and I don’t imagine I would have with any other instructor! I would definitely recommend that you choose to learn with Phil, as he will get you through!
Thank you again Phil!

If you are someone who feels like they will never pass their driving test… Look no further than Phil! As someone who was terrified of driving – I can say I was the person who would prefer to stay in the car park than to actually get out on the ‘scary’ roads!- and had zero confidence in my capability, Phil taught me from scratch how to be a cautious, competent and vigilant driver, through patience and clearly excellent instructing. Not only did I always feel in safe hands – even when I would make the most ridiculous learner driver errors- most importantly, I felt like I benefited from the kind of instructing that would teach me ‘real life’ driving that would properly prepare me for the day when I had passed and had no one sat by me as a comfort… rather than the bare minimum to pass a driving test! Phil is calm, chatty, clearly experienced and knowledgeable in his field. Ask anyone, if Phil got me through my test then he can get anyone through theirs! Phil is definitely one of a kind.

“I can’t thank Phil enough for all the help he’s gave me. He was really calm and worked at a pace that was good for me, if I struggled or made a mistake he was understanding and helped me to correct it. I’m so happy to have passed my driving test and feel confident that I am a safe driver.”
“Phil was a great driving instructor, not only did his guidance allow me to pass first time, but it made me feel very comfortable driving as a whole. I can’t recommend phil enough as his teaching is second to none and I’m sure he could help absolutely anyone pass no matter their ability.”
“I passed my driving test first time with Phil’s excellent teaching. I’d taken lessons with other instructors before but always got bored and never stuck with it. Thanks to Phil’s patient, friendly and clear guidance, I enjoyed the lessons for the first time and was motivated to keep going. He was very good at building my confidence at the same time as giving me advice on areas to improve. He made the manoeuvres seem a lot simpler by explaining them really well. Would definitely recommend Phil to anyone. Thanks Phil!”
“I would highly recommend Phil as a driving instructor. I was both nervous and lacking in confidence when I started driving. Phil’s calm manner, clear instructions and confidence in my ability enabled me to progress quickly. Due to his teaching I felt prepared when it came to taking my test, his method of teaching gave me the opportunity to experience a wide variety of driving scenarios. I passed within a few months of starting to learn.”
“Phil is a very good teacher. He explains stuff very well, always being patient, always on time, highly professional, friendly and understanding. He gives people confidence to drive, and make you enjoy it. Taking my lessons with him has been a pleasure. I certainly succeeded on the first go thanks to him. For once, a French man won’t complain. Thanks a lot Phil.”
