    I would definitely recommend this company to anyone who is looking for driving lessons! I learnt with Michael who was incredibly kind and patient and was able to pass first time last week. I am thrilled, thank you so much!

    Already had some driving experience so I only had a few lessons with Dave in the Nissan Juke. After 3 2 hour lessons, plus an hour before the test I passed first time with 0 minors. Was able to have a few decent conversations with Dave … More whilst out on the road during lessons and was never pressured into getting more lessons than needed.

    Had a really fantastic experience learning with Jason! He was kind and patient throughout, and took me from completely inexperienced to passing first time far more quickly than I could've anticipated. Highly recommended for anyone … More wanting to learn in Durham!

    My instructor Nigel was absolutely fantastic. He was able to schedule lessons around my work/uni time table and was really flexible. I passed with Nigel in just 5 lessons after failing my test in London over the summer-would recommend drivers … More skill north east to anyone looking to past their test fast. X
