Just passed my test at the first attempt with Darran, couldn’t have asked for a better instructor. Very thorough and patient whilst having a good time to. Would definitely recommend A⭐️
THANK YOU – Hayley Whelan
5/5 stars, and well earned. I learned with Darran Shaw and I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to learn to drive. At the start I was very hesitant whilst driving but now I feel like I was taught how to drive, not just how to pass a test. Not only did he teach me to drive but he also taught me tips on looking after cars for when I get one of my own, Overall it was a very good experience and I couldn’t be more thankful of the Driving Academy and Darran for helping to achieve my 1st time pass, thank you again! – Matthew Edgar

Just passed my test first time with Andy with just 2 minors also passed my brother & sister both first time too, highly recommend him he’s defiantly the best he puts so much time and effort in and also makes you feel very welcome,I loved every lesson with him 😃🌟- Aisha Yorke
Absolutely fantastic driving school. Andy is an amazing instructor, extremely patient and I honestly don’t think I’d have been able to pass without him. Also amazing with my 14 year old who is doing the under 17 driving lessons. Would highly recommend him and the rest of the driving instructors at The Driving Academy! Thank you again, I’ll miss our weekly outings – Jacquie Gilbey
Brilliant company, learned with many companies/instructors over the years but only took me 6 months to find my confidence and gain the ability to drive with The Driving Academy, would recommend to anyone!! -Danielle Douthwaite
