What learners have to say....
Les is so great at keeping you at ease when driving
Les is so great at keeping you at ease when driving – he’s extremely helpful and patient and really helped me overcome my nerves, couldn’t have passed my test without him.
Makes learning to drive a fantastic experience.
Les is a great instructor
Les is a great instructor who I would recommend to everyone. He takes the time to ensure you know everything that you could possibly need to and will have you fully prepared for your test.
Best driving instructor ever
Les is a great driving instructor. He is the most calm, fair, patient, supportive and reassuring person, and that is reflected in his teachings. I couldn’t imagine learning or passing with anyone else! His knowledge and teachings of driving is extensive and I appreciated that he explained everything for me to understand clearly. I suffered horrendously with nerves, anxiety and lack of self confidence especially the closer my test got but Les was constantly there to advise, support and steer me in the right direction! He really helped with my confidence in driving and myself! I passed first time and feel that I will be a safe and confident driver and that is all thanks to Les. I can’t thank him enough!

Couldn’t have asked for a more patient instructor
I restarted lessons with Les after a couple of years off and passed with 3 minors. Couldn’t have asked for a more patient and friendlier instructor! Les was great at helping me build up my confidence in driving throughout the whole process
Les is a fantastic driving instructor
Les is a fantastic driving instructor. Always so patient, calm and puts you at complete ease. I couldn’t have passed my test on Saturday without his help and support during my lessons. He helped massively with my confidence to drive safely. I would highly recommend Les to anyone wanting to learn to drive.
