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!

Autumn O'Brien

My driving instructor was James. I really enjoyed my lessons, I particularly liked learning to parallel park I feel like I picked it up quite quickly because I was taught a very easy way to do it.

The lessons were structured well, everything was explained clearly and I always knew what I was doing. It was really easy at the end of every lesson, I booked the next one. I chose this driving school because the company was advertised very well, the website and Facebook page drew me in.
