  • Jim has been brilliant while I have been learning to drive. He has always made me feel at ease and is fantastic at pushing you on to the next step. After every lesson, you feel you have progressed closer to your test and become a better driver. The biggest compliment I can give is that Jim is one of the most open and honest people I have ever met. I would highly recommend.

  • Jim was my 4th instructor and the best by far! I was a very nervous pupil and with Jim’s help I quickly relaxed and was able to gain confidence; he’s so patient and calming in his approach he’s great. Jim was always there to listen to my concerns and views on my driving and help me to understand how I could change things, prompting me rather than telling me. He’s very safety conscious which helps you build your confidence in all situations and you know that you will be safe when you’re driving on the roads long after your test. Thanks Jim.

  • James is a first class instructor who quickly made me feel at ease and confident in my driving ability. He always remained calm and supportive even when things did not go as well as planned. More importantly he would help me to understand what it was that had gone wrong and ways that I could quickly improve it. I would highly recommend James if you want someone calm reliable and lovely and someone you can have a laugh with.

  • My experience of learning to drive with James couldn’t have been better a first time pass with 1 driving fault. He was always professional but also acted as a friend throughout my journey. He was always calming in times of stress and boosted my confidence in times of need, I couldn’t recommend him more.
