Katie from Hyde


 I found learning to drive to be a lot easier than I first thought. Ian’s teaching methods were spot on. He was friendly, calming, patient, firm and witty all rolled into one. He knew how nervous I was but soon made me realise I could do it.

I think the driving school is fantastic. I would recommend 100%. Friendly, and lessons were fun.



It was important that I had an instructor who was patient, friendly, honest and gave constructive feedback where needed. When I was learning to drive it definitely met my expectations, I got all the support I needed and assistance with driving.

Excellent customer service right from the start until the end, understanding, patient and great instructor. Nothing could be improved, everything was brilliant and perfect.
