Ewan Treble-Westlake

Thank you Rob and 2nd2none! I've just passed my driving test first time and completed my 1week intensive course with Rob. It has been great, At first I was kindly welcomed into the car and felt that I was in safe hands while learning to drive. Throughout the whole week Rob showed me everything of how to drive the car and I probably had visited every road and roundabout in Weston. I couldn't of asked for a better Instructor really!

Simply put we are not all the same and your choice of driving instructor for your driving lessons can make a huge difference both to your progress and to the cost of learning to drive. Choosing the wrong driving instructor has also been known to put some people off learning to drive altogether.
