Success Stories

The main features of our driving school include:

Car Control

Car Control

Working on the clutch, starting and stopping, reversing and a lot on junctions as well. This builds confidence in the pupil and is the first step in our driving lessons

Roundabout Training

Roundabout Training

Roundabouts can be daunting at first, especially to new drivers so our driving instructors spend extra time on this to ensure confidence when taking these on

Clutch Control

Clutch Control

We develop this quintessential skill through the use of hill starts and meeting traffic which both rely heavily on clutch control. See our manual driving lessons page for more info.



Like roundabouts, crossroads can be equally daunting with the hesitation and right of way quandaries that often spring up when a lot of cars meet at once

Patrick was recommended by a friend and I’m glad I listened to them. He is very professional with the patience to go along with it. From the very first lesson he made me feel at ease and I quickly picked up driving from the first lessons. After I passed we had lessons free to do pass plus and again Patrick was very good. We fully recommend him to anyone.
– Nathan Bell
From a very very nervous learner with what I saw as no natural aptitude for driving and lack of practical and co-ordination skills and spatial awareness, I passed first time with Patrick, very encouraging, supportive and reassuring as well as to-the-point and top quality of knowledge. I am so thankful for him for getting me through and making me enjoy and be confident with my abilities and driving, never thought it would be possible. He’s a lovely and funny man, I’ll miss my lessons with him, though shall definitely be returning for PassPlus. I would 100% recommend him to anyone
