I've just passed my test first time after doing a four day intensive driving course. James is a great instructor and very helpful. He upped the challenge everyday for example going from Poole one day to the centre of Bristol the next. This course was definitely worth it and I would recommend to other people.

James is the best teacher I have ever had. I don’t think I could have passed the test without his help. Perfect balance between friendly encouragement and conveying information in an easy to understand way. With his help I passed first time with only 2 minors. Just a few months ago I was a very nervous driver and thought I would never be able to drive. I can’t thank James enough!

Were your lessons structured in way you could understand and progress?: Absolutely, I learnt quickly and felt everything was balanced well.

I passed my driving test first time with only 5 minors. Thanks to James my instructor for all your help and patience. This is going to make a big difference to me passing my driving test as now no more waiting for the bus to college. :)

An amazing instructor, who has made me feel relaxed from the moment I first got in the car. He has made me get over my fear of roundabouts and lorries very quickly and with out me even realising it at first. The free theory training really helped me with passing my theory quickly and on my first attempt. it was a great way to learn every thing that you need to know. I felt the car was really easy to learn in and I wish I could keep it as my own car. I would highly recommend James as an instructor, if you want someone you can rely on being punctual, friendly and a overall great instructor.
