Reviews about 1st Driving School



Dean was an amazing instructor, he was entirely flexible when it came to my university timetable, and the long breaks I would take during uni holidays. Would greatly recommend to drivers on any level, especially Dean.

Debbie May is a great driving instructor and very good at her job. I passed 1st time and grateful for all her hard work with me.

Vicky Anderson

Great instructor with personality! Put me at ease straight away from the first lesson. Will help any student develop confidence and assertiveness behind the wheel :-).

Tony Black

Great driving instructor, very thorough with teaching you everything you need to know, very flexible with lesson times, all around good teacher and I would strongly recommend

Tom Scobie

My driving instructor (Matthew Clarke) was very helpful, courteous, friendly and taught me all the protocols of driving extremely well. I would definitely recommend anyone to have lessons at this establishment. Having been to a previous woeful driving instructor at a different company, Matt restored my confidence and abilities in driving adequately at a fast pace.

Roger Fleming is a great instructor and I couldn't have asked for more! He's friendly and keeps conversation on your lessons, which I've always found to be relaxing. He's patient and works with you to get to a really high standard so you're prepared for your test. I've had a few driving instructors before, but none have compared to how confident I feel getting behind the wheel now. Not only do I see him as my driving instructor, I also see him as a friend I'll have for years to come. I couldn't recommend him highly enough

Tom Desborough

Brilliant service!! Did everything possible to get me through my test, would highly reccomend John and the company to anyone who is learning to drive they'll do anything for you and answer and questions you have!

Tom Mycroft

It was good. Great driving school with great instructors. Dean was very patient and explained the technicalities of where I needed to improve and how.

Debbie May is an outstanding driving instructor that helped me pass my driving test first time! Deb is a friendly, bubbly instructor who is always up for a laugh whilst providing professional guidance during lessons. During every single one of my lessons I have thoroughly enjoyed my time learning with Debbie and would recommend her to anyone learning to drive with 1st Driving School! I could not of asked for a better driving instructor to help me pass my driving test :)

Tobias Lynch

Massive appreciation to both the company & Dean. The time and effort he was willing to put in, along with the patience and allowing me to learn at my own pace was amazing and incredibly supportive. Couldn't recommend him enough to anyone who asks, even swapped cars halfway through and he made it feel flawless!

Thomas Wilson

Dan is a great instructor, he's very informed and is a great teacher. My days with Dan we're learning new manoeuvres and perfecting/getting better at old ones. He has a great personality to match, I always looked forward to our lesson for the jokes and "haha's" (but he kept it professional). I've already advised a friend to go to him and I would advise anyone to ask for Dan. After all it's hard to find the best instructor ever.

I've just passed my driving test this morning on my first attempt thanks to my amazing instructor Monica. I had previously had lessons at the age of 17 but stopped because of the cost and lack of motivation. I then had more lessons at 20 which is discontinued because I felt like the driving instructor was keeping me on longer than they should have (not a driver from 1st Driving School). I finally decided at 23 it was time to pass, I booked lessons with Monica and couldn't be more pleased!! Monica gave me the guidance I needed and taught me things that I previously couldn't grasp with other instructors. Monica made me feel super comfortable and was very supportive of me, Monica genuinely cares about her students and is really rooting for you to pass! So a huge thank you to Monica and I urge anyone wanting to go ahead with lessons to choose Monica, you won't regret it!

Tarnya Martin

Geoff is an amazing instructor who was patient and observing at each moment. He helped me to fine tune my driving After failing my test the first time. Thank you so much

Tarila Cedras

I'm so happy I went with 1st Driving School because they were friendly and patient, I'd like to say a special thank you to Debra May especially because not only did she believe in me but I believe that without her I wouldn't have passed my test! I would definitely recommend Debra May as she was polite and considerate and made me feel at ease in lessons. Again, thank you Debra.

Tara Butler

After having 3 different instructors 1st driving was my last resort and wish I had gone with them from the beginning. My instructor Rita was so kind and encouraging which made me look forward to having a lesson with her. Each lesson I learnt something new to help me improve my driving. I am so thankful that Rita helped me pass my test!! I would recommend her to anyone!

Tammy Walters

My lessons with Andrew Blain were fun and enjoyable, I was looking forward to them rather than being nervous. My instructor was thorough and patient, which greatly helped my confidence. Flexibility was also a big bonus. I would recommend to anyone!

Sylwia Dalkiewicz

Would definitely recommend 1st Driving. The way everything is organised is great and not overpriced like some intensive courses. And i couldn't have asked for a better instructor, Dan has been amazing. Thank you so much 1st Driving!!! 😃

Susan Sercombe

I can't thank and recommend John Cooke from 1st Driving School enough! I have always been a nervous passenger and never even considered driving until a lot of nagging from my other half which meant that I should consider 'trying'. From my very first lesson I felt comfortable and safe with John. John was always available for lessons, even at awkward times. I went from a nervous wreck to passing my test, with confidence! All thanks to John!

Sian Waldron

Roger has been great. From the get go he put me at ease, making every lesson interesting; allowing me to become more confident. It's been a pleasure to learn with him. Thank you very much Roger!

Sian Tredwell

Robert Parker - I had him from day one, he's an absolute amazing driving instructor! Always made my lessons fun and enjoyable! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM! Fantastic driving instructor! I enjoyed every lesson with him. Very pleased with how he taught me to drive!

Shannon Harbon

I just want to point out that 1st driving school has an amazing driving instructor Matt Clarke! couldn't have had a better experience on how to drive :)

Shannon Daly

Went to Matt from a previous driver and he sorted out all my issues and made everything extremely clear, a great guy to be around and makes the whole experience enjoyable!

Sean Garavan

I had a wonderful instructor Eric who has been very patient with me for the last 10 weeks. I had a deadline to pass my test by and I have managed to pass my test first time. Flexible lessons when I needed them and extra hours leading up to my test I couldn't be happier with the service I received. Patience and understanding helps along way in passing your test.

Sarah Cutts

My instructor Andy was phenomenal, very much recommended, showed great patience and is prepared to go the extra mile to ensure success, and this lead to me passing first time.

Samuel Babalola

I have had the best experience learning to drive with Matt Clarke, not only did he get me passed first time, I had an amazing time whilst learning to drive. I cant imagine a better instructor than Matt and I would definitely recommend him to everyone.

Sam Reule

I cannot recommend Michael enough. He is the perfect instructor for first time drivers, right from the start he was patient and kind but never let me get too complacent. He always pushed me to do better because he knew what I was capable of and he always made time for our lessons each week no matter how busy he was. By the time I took my test there wasn't a single area I felt unprepared in. Thank you so much for everything I couldn't have done it without you!!!!!
