I did my lessons about 4 years ago now and to this day still recommended people to him and they always come away happy ! Lovely person to learn with keeps you relaxed and has an amazing method of teaching ! Would 110% recommended you wont regret it !
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
Patrick was so much help to me and the best instructor, very patient with me throughout all the lessons i had with him. thank you so much Patrick am now a good driver on roads.
Patrick is a patient and flexible instructor who gives you confidence, isupportive and reliable. He was recommended to me and what a great recommendation he was. I passed my theory first time and was very nervous for my test but passed that first time.
Patrick said he would get me through my driving test by a certain month and I did.
I have had other instructors before when I done a few lessons here and there, none of them compared and I would thoroughly recommend Patrick.
I call him the Boss. My experience with Patrick was exciting, never dull but rather positive. He is genuinely practical and all my driving sessions with him were handled professionally and in a proficient way. Definitely highly recommended!
5star I started driving in February this year and managed to pass by end of May second attempt !!! I’m so grateful to Patrick for being a top instructor totally recommend.
Best Instructor ever, laid back and very patient, highly recommended.
Would like to say a massive thankyou to Patrick Pender on being the best driving instructor and enabling me to pass my test today! I would highly recommend drive4life to anyone starting driving lessons. Thank you again Patrick!!!
Hello Patrick…I saw u today along will Adams way and was delighted to see u still going strong as a driving instructor.

Had a brilliant driving lesson tonight bit scarey in the dark compared to during the day Patrick Pender thought he would take me on a little road trip round the world and back lol can’t wait till Thursday for my next one
Today marks exactly a year since I passed my driving Test and I have had a clean license throughout. Thanks to the best instructor ever…Patrick…I am so grateful for the way Patrick taught me. I was very fearful of driving due to the way my previous instructor taught me but I never gave up…then my partner found you. Within a couple of months with Patrick, he passed and then I passed three months after. Thank God for the day my partner found Patrick’s school online…Now we have both being driving confidently for over a year. I always recommend you to anyone I know looking for an instructor. To me, Patrick you are our ‘God-sent driving instructor’!!! Wishing you the very best always.
I started my lesson with Patrick at drive for life back in November come Christmas Patrick said I was ready for my test but I hadn’t past my theory and I found it hard so Patrick helped me a lot as much as he could taking me on more lesson for road signs ect and giving me DVDs. After 4 times of failing my theory I past on my 5 time and put in for my test but failed 1st time and Patrick was very consistent and helped me more and more then 2 weeks later I passed 🙂 Patrick is very comfortable to be in the car with and I would just like to say thankyou for putting up with me for so long lol
Patrick was an excellent and very friendly driving instructor! I feel like I was quite a difficult student, due to my fear of big roundabouts and stressed nature during the test, but Patrick never gave up on me. I now feel like a very confident driver, and even started driving around busy London not too long after passing my test. I recommended my brother in law to learn with Patrick and would recommend again to others!
I have been with drive academy for a year and a half with Patrick, he is fantastic and the best driving instructor I have had! I would definitely recommend to anyone young \ old to go with Patrick 5 stars all round!! ????????
Today I’ve just passed with drive4life. Patrick is an amazing instructor who made me really relaxed whenever we had a lesson which helped me learn. Whenever I did anything wrong we just discussed it he is a very calming influence and would recommend Patrick to have your lessons with. If I had a different instructor I don’t think I would of passed but Patrick really made things easy and I’m really glad that I found his Co panhandle and was able to do lessons with him
Learning to drive was very fun, laugh a minute with Patrick, which made me less nervous and I found it easier to learn.
But as well as having a bit of fun Patrick’s way of teaching made it easier for me to understand how to do certain manoeuvre’s which I struggled with.
I recommend Patrick highly, I am grateful and appreciate getting me through the exam!!
Thanks again Patrick!
On the first lesson Patrick said to me: so how would you like to book your test? And then and there we booked it on his tablet for 6weeks later. I thought omg this guys crazy! But he assured me I had the basics covered and he wasn’t about just taking my money. He truly believed he could have me driving perfectly in just one lesson a week until my test… When he says youre ready. Youre ready! And vice versa!
He’s teaching is awesome. I tried watching the driving videos but always found that I learnt more from Patrick. He’s incredibly patient and I loved how calm he always was and how easy it was to relax with him and just talk about general things (like pet dogs) whilst driving along. I’ll definitely be recommending him to friends and family. Oh and did I mention I passed first time ???
Patrick was a fantastic instructor. I was able to book lessons very quickly and fit them in around my busy schedule.
He pushed me to be a confident and able driver with all the knowledge I needed to be able to pass my driving test!
I would definitely recommend this driving school if you want to be able to drive quickly and confidently.
5 star I passed first time. Patrick is a great teacher, very patient and easy to get on with. I would recommend Drive4Life Academy to anyone looking to learn to drive.
I passed my driving test today and i would like to say a big thankyou to patrick for being the best driving instructor ever. will definetely be recommending
PATRICK IS A GREAT INSTRUCTOR! I passed my test first time in less than 50 lessons. Excellent teaching methods and the lessons are very reasonable prices, I am glad that I found drive for life academy and I will continue to recommend it to others.Thank you so much for everything 🙂

If I had to explain him in two words, he is an “amazing instructor”. Very flexible, always in Jolly mood with so much of patience and ease. He will definitely work his heart out to turn you into a good and sensible driver. Like his driving school’s name suggests, you will definitely become a good little driver for your whole life. I wish all the very best for Patrick.
I had previous driving experience and only had big problem while driving in roundabouts. I asked Patrick to help me with that and he was really helpful and took me around all the roundabouts to boost my confidence. After several lessons on roundabouts I finally passed the driving test first time. Patrick is a friendly and very approachable person who tailors the driving lessons according to students needs.
Thank you Patrick for being a great instructor. 🙂
Being of advanced age I was quite nervous at the prospect of learning to drive and passing a test. Having met with Patrick and going through my first lesson I instantly felt more confident and positive about the whole adventure. I found Patrick a patient and understanding instructor and thanks to his skills I now drive with complete confidence.
Hello Patrick, you are the best teacher ever. I can honestly recommend you for everyone. If you have a good teacher you becoming a good student. Thank you so so much for everything, you make life better and easier for me and Aqua… FOR EVERYONE OUT THERE WHO WANT TO START DRIVING LESSONS CHOOSE *DRIVE4LIFE * with Patrick he will teach you well. Thank you kindly for everything. 🙂
Thank you Patrick , I would never do it with out you.
I sincerely advise driving learners to join drive4life academy. I got driving license due to fine guidance by Pattrick. His driving tips enabled me to get a license. He is a refine instructor equipped with excellent skills and experience. I feel proud to be a student of nice humble guider.
Patrick was a brilliant instructor, could always count on having a laugh to take my mind of the actual driving which helped me a lot. Passed first time within 25 lessons and he never say in the drivers seat of a car! Would recommend him as I have done already
Patrick is an excellent instructor. He’s very calm and patient, and he has lots of great tools to offer – like videos and diagrams – so you can keep learning and practising between lessons, which is great for new drivers as well as people like me who’ve had some experience of driving before. He’s also great at helping you build your confidence so you feel ready for the test. So happy I passed!
Patrick is a refined instructor. I passed practical test today as he guided me very well. My passing credit goes to him. He is very humble and polite and test learners will develop confidence after taking lessons with him. I strongly recommend all learners to take learning lessons from Patrick. You will feel great confidence as basic guidelines given by him are extremely beneficial. I thank Patick for his polite and best guidance.
I passed my driving test today! After a year of giving up on driving lessons, and signing up to unhelpful instructors-who cared less about progress or even building ones confidence, a friend recommended Drive4Life Academy and Patrick has helped me build my confidence over the last couple of months. All he says is ” You can do it!”. Any one out there feeling like giving up on driving lessons? Contact Drive 4 Life and Patrick will help you get back on your feet!
Many thanks again and wish you the very best! Hope to get time and do more PassPlus and Motorway lessons when I buy a car!
Patrick is a brilliant instructor. I initially thought driving will be scary but he made it enjoyable and easy. Plus his methods were far better (in my opinion) than the methods shown by practical driving test CDs. The car is superb and very easy to learn with. I passed my test and I plan to do my pass plus course and any further courses with Patrick as I highly doubt I will find a better instructor. Thank you for your help!
Phew! Finally passed my driving test. This test is definitely not a piece of cake and our country should learn this format of test; it sure will minimise the road accidents by a huge number that is very common in Nepal. A big thank you goes to my instructor Patrick Pender for having faith and patience on me. The driving skills that I have learned from you will always be with me and will always remind me of you. You are one of the kindest and friendliest person/instructor.
Had 40lessons with various instructors, came to drive4life academy and passed after 5lessons.He is a patient and clever individual. The best instructor i have heard by a long mile, and trust me when i say a long mile. Thanks
I’ve been with patrick on and off for a year. he is understanding and pushes you to achieve. hes teaching style is excellent and is always there to help and support you. best driving instructor ive ever had! thank you patrick
Patient, kind and genuinely honest. Patrick is one of the best teachers I have ever had the pleasure of being taught by. His kind but firm style creates a reassuring environment in which one can progress quickly and fluidly throughout their lessons. With Patrick I passed first time, and have never looked back. Excellent!
Hi had just turned 17 and started having lessons and one thing I knew for sure was that I was in the best hands with Patrick, his easy going but pushing nature over time turned me into a safe confident driver and always pushed me to never giving up. He also explains things at your level and makes it easier to understand and is hugely reassuring. I am now an independent confident driver and still take Patricks and still take Patricks advice while I am on the road and couldn’t thank him enough for his support throughout this tough but life changing experience!
