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 taught my son to drive. He was fantastic, patient and understanding. Adam really enjoyed his lessons and learned not only to pass his test, but how to actually drive! Cant recommend him highly enough.

Les is a wonderful driving instructor. He is the most reassuring, calm and supportive people I have ever met! I couldn’t imagine learning to drive with anyone else. If you are an anxious driver like I am he is the best out there. I experienced two driving instructors before him and they almost put me off driving for good, Les definitely helped with my confidence in driving and I will always be grateful.

I am so grateful for having Les as my driving instructor, I passed my test today on my first attempt with no minors and it’s all thanks to him!
Les is an incredibly patient teacher, but also a genuine pleasure to spend time with. He put me at ease from my very first lesson and has contributed hugely to my confidence behind the wheel and also my all round ability to believe in myself.
 
I would recommend him to anyone who is thinking of learning
