I'd started learning to drive with a different instructor 10 years previously but really didn't enjoy the experience and gave up after failing my first test. Darren put me at ease from my first lesson onwards. His knowledge both of vehicles and the roads (and basically everything you need to know to become a safe driver and pass your test) is incredibly vast. He's patient and reassuring but will push and encourage you where and when it's needed. I can't recommend him enough, especially if you're a little nervous/lacking confidence like I was!

Brilliant instructor, is super patient and instructive and teaches you how to drive in such a safe manner. He helped make me feel confident to drive, when I was initially hesitant to even start lessons in the first place. Could not recommend anyone higher!

I would highly recommend Darren, as a driving instructor; he is very kind and patient with all situations and doesn't get frustrated if anything goes wrong. He waits until we are parked in a safe place and calmly discusses what went wrong and why it went wrong. He helped me very well with my nerves as I was initially a very nervous learner. He would always talk me through everything and always encouraged and supported my abilities. He also helped me to pass my test and I’m very proud of myself and Darren as my instructor. I really couldn't think of anyone better to teach me.

Only 1 Driving Fault !!!
Darren is a brilliant instructor! He made me feel more confident and at ease behind the wheel and taught me things that my previous instructors had overlooked. Lessons were enjoyable and the only regret I have was not finding him sooner.

I would recommend Darren to any of my friends looking to learn. He was very supporting and conciencious, I learned a lot of useful information and road sense above and beyond what was required of me for the practical test and had a good laugh at the same time.

I would have no problem highly recommending Darren. As an instructor he is faultless, he made me feel comfortable from day one, he found a style of teaching that worked best for me and he is also very accommodating and excellent value for money! Thanks Darren 👍

A brilliant instructor. Darren makes the lessons a pleasure, with a relaxed atmosphere, while imparting everything you need to know to be a top notch driver. From the first lesson right up until youve passed the test, he makes the whole learning process easy and understandable.

I had a wonderful experience with Darren as an instructor he gave me so much confidence and I can't believe I had wasted so much time and money with the 4 other instructors I had before him. I highly recommend him! lessons with him are so relaxed. Thank you Darren for helping me gain my freedom I can now be the mummy driver😅
