I had an amazing time learning to drive with Caroline. Her 'let's just give it a go' and friendly attitude helped me build the driving confidence needed to go from a fairly nervous beginner to passing first time with only 4 minors. I will be highly recommending DVDS to everyone! Thank you!

I would like to give my thanks and appreciation to Simon for teaching me to drive. He was very professional and friendly and made learning to drive a fun experience. I would recommend DVDS to any of my friends who are looking to learn to drive. Thanks.

Many thanks to my driving Instructor Mario. He was an excellent instructor, explaining everything in a simplistic and easy to understand way. In the weeks leading up to my driving test Mario devised a mock test, which helped me to iron out the imperfections in my driving and consequently resulted in me passing first time with 1 minor.

Writing to express my high satisfaction with the quality of the driving instructor Mario, who helped me (Jonathan Wall) towards passing first time and with 0 faults. Pleased with the high quality of the learning experience and friendliness, all round a good experience.

Thanks too Mario!

Learnt to drive an automatic with June Musson. This poor lady put up with my anxiety, nerves and moaning about my husband!! I simply couldn't have done it without her , she believed in me when I couldn't believe in myself. Will miss her company now I've passed, can't thank her enough.

Sept 2006 Great driving school, always on time. Really enjoyed my lessons and to top it off I passed first time. March 2016 DVDS is an amazing Driving school, I could not fault it any way. 🙂 My driving Instructor Kieran is one of the most wonderful l people I have ever met and I am so please I was lucky enough to be taught by him. I am sure all the other instructors are just as friendly. I Highly recommend this driving school!!!! Love Jade xx March 2016 Just had a lesson with Kieran. What a fantastic guy. Really friendly and makes you feel comfortable. Funny guy and for me very easy to get along with. Couldn't recommend him highly enough. Looking forward to many more lessons with him. Keep up the great work mate!!! Aug 2016 Amazing driving school. Flexible and and helpful, got all the support I needed and passed first time! Couldn't recommend enough, thanks! Oct 2016 Great driving school. I had Nigel who was really calm and always managed to fit me in for a lesson even when he was busy. Great man even though he is a West Ham fan Nov 2016 Passed my test first time with DVDS today. Highly recommend because they could always fit me in whenever I was available. Patient, friendly and always on time. Thanks. Nov 2016 If you want to learn in an automatic car, then I highly recommend June Musson. Simply because this lady is very passionate and dedicated to her job! She has ways of teaching and a mannerism which will put you at ease and will make every lesson enjoyable. So regardless of your fears or faults, June will rectify theses and turn all your negatives into positives and get you through your test! Nov 2016 Absolutely amazing company! My instructor was patient and calm through all my lessons and tests and always made every lesson a laugh! Did wonders for my confidence when driving aswell! Thank you so much DVDs

Big thank you to June who was a patient and helpful instructor. learning to drive is not something I have found easy but June stuck with me and managed to bring me up to a standard where I was able to pass first time. She was full of lots of good useful use for passing the test but for being a better and safer driver in general.

Would like to thank DVDS so much for sticking by me and helping me so much and teaching me in such a way that it would stick! To the point I passed with only 3 minors!! I have been with so many driving schools before in the past and failed but when I joined this driving school all my passed skills I had learned went out the window and learnt things that made more simple sense and I enjoyed the giggles and friendly chats along the lessons too!! And now i can finally drive independently so happy best school really do recommend this school to anyone and everyone who is willing to learn and drive the correct way!! Loved the experience massive thank you so impressed and so happy

Thank you June Musson!
Posted Monday 10 Oct 2016 22:48 PM
I want to begin by making a confession. I was written off by a driving instructor from RED. He said, "Driving wasn't for me". I wasn't even confident of doing simple manoeuvres like left and right turns. But as soon as I started taking lessons with June, everything changed. She has been ever so patient and encouraging, guiding me to become a safe and successful driver. She has put me through tough situations on the road and grilled me thoroughly (without breaking my confidence), motivating me to get as much practice as possible. Result: I passed my test first time with just two faults. Hats off to you June for giving me this confidence. I couldn't have done this without you!

Mario is a fantastic driving instructor. His wealth of experience and knowledge help you to understand the car and its workings. His patience means that you never feel on edge therefore making driving lessons feel very comfortable. He also tries his very best to arrange lesson time so they suit you perfectly. For example, he managed to fit my lessons in around my difficult college timetable. I managed to pass first time and I believe that this was mainly due to how great Mario was as a driving instructor. I would highly recommend him to anyone! Thanks Mario, Tom

Many thanks to DVDS and June for a great learning experience. June was very patient instructor for a very nervy learner like me. I had loads of lessons with other instructors I would rate June as the best cos she made me a confident and safe driver. Passed in my second attempt with no major or minor fault., only because of June as she was constantly correcting me to get everything right. I will recomend June for any learning driver.

After a questionable experience with another company I was left with no confidence whatsoever and avoided driving for years. Within six weeks Dawn completely built my confidence and got me through my test feeling confident on the road. I could not recommend her enough and especially for anyone who is feeling like they need the extra push. Brilliant driver and amazing person!

Wonderful!

Learning to drive
Posted Thursday 28 Apr 2016 23:25 PM
I had John as my driving instructor. He was an incredibely calm man, reasonable in his price and flexibility and helpful due to his emmense organisation. He has a brilliant teaching technique and I felt that he balanced teaching and amount of driving tremendously well, he knew the area of the test centres like the back of his hand but also drummed home the message that driving is for life and not just to pass the test. A final advantage to John is his calmness, at times when I was erratic and panicking due to travelling through areas that I had not been through before and scared of making mistakes, his experience was able to calm me down, set me back to basics and continue learning. Thank you so much John!

I passed my driving test first time with DVDS, but this is only because June was such a fantastic instructor. She was so supportive and helpful throughout my lessons, and especially prior to my exam. She went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure I passed and there's no way I could've done it without her. I definitely recommend June as an instructor, and DVDS as a driving school. Marina

I first experienced DVDS when they came to my college and they offered a great friendly FREE service which really gave me the confidence to start learning. I then decided to go with Adrian after a few recommendations and it was a great decision! He made learning great fun and I could see progression lesson after lesson. He's a top guy and I'll miss the banter-thank you for getting both Megan and I on the road ????

At 29 years of age and 3 kids I feel fear of being on the road can be overpowering however after being with a few different schools I was highly recommended Adrian at Dvds. I am so pleased with the lessons I have had and was made to feel at such ease. Adrian made me feel confident with being behind the wheel and he was extremely patient (with my pregnancy brain). Every lesson was a joy, laugh and a pleasure to be in and if I'm honest, although I'm happy I've passed its almost sad to say good bye. I have highly recommended you and will continue to do so!!! Thank you so much for helping me make my life easier and giving me freedom! Cheers Adrian! Thank you so much for everything. Holly ??

I was recommended Mario from 2 friends who both passed 1st time using him. From the moment i called he was very friendly and very polite and did what he could to squeeze me in. Through out my lessons he was clear and very precise and 100% made me feel at ease, regardless of any mistakes I made he was careful to make sure I corrected them and wasn't impatient. I could not recommend Mario any higher, he is a very likable gentleman and a very good teacher. I passed 1st time and it was all down to the way Mario carefully taught me during my lessons. Very very happy with the service I received, I highly recommend DVDS.

Passed first time whoopee!!
Posted Wednesday 07 Oct 2015 14:42 PM
Passed my driving test first time yesterday. I never thought i would ever drive at the age of 50 due to being a very nervous person in a car. Then i was very lucky to meet June. Throughout my whole driving lessons, June remained very calm and supportive,as well as being knowlegeable, friendly and very pleasent. I will miss her loads but hopefuly will see her driving around. Thank you so much June couldnt have done it without you.

Amazing tuition from June, passed first time!
Posted Wednesday 23 Sep 2015 10:41 AM
I've just passed my test this morning after learning with June for the last 3 months. Having taken 4 tests previously when I was 18 (6 years ago) I'd lost confidence and hadn't driven since. After plucking up the courage to book some automatic lessons with June. She has been a great instructor throughout, very calm when you make mistakes, and gives great guidance on how to do everything correctly and safely. After less than 30 hours of lessons I felt the most confident I have been driving, and passed my test first time with only 2 minors. I would highly recommend June to anybody who would like to learn to drive in an automatic. She is fantastic. Will miss seeing you in lessons, but hopefully will see you out on the road soon, in my own car. Best wishes, Francesca

Thanks to Nigel from DVDS for being such a fantastic instructor, couldn't have passed with just 2 minor faults without his brilliant help and advice! Whilst very brief, I shall miss our time together. I think the sheer number of people passing with 1 or 2 minor faults on this page are testament to the quality of DVDS. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

After many years and several instructors learning nervously in manual cars I decided after a few failed tests that I'd give automatic a try. Best decision ever! Straight away June could see where I was going wrong and set to work on smoothing out my driving and building my confidence. Her years of experience and calming manner (yet straight talking when needed :))really helped me to actually get excited about passing my test and driving on my own rather than worry all the time. I passed a few days ago and know it was because of June's expert tuition. Thoroughly recommended:)

I was ready for my test much sooner than I expected and that is all thanks to June 🙂

DVDS is a fabulous driving school; I was taught by the excellent teacher, Mario. Mario really helped to build up the confidence I needed in my driving and for my test. DVDS do not only prepare you for your test, they give their students that ability and skill to drive. With his hard-work, patience and positivity, I passed with only 3 minors!! I HIGHLY recommend Mario, not only did I pass with him, my younger sister passed with him, also. His positive feedback and belief helped myself to achieve a self-fulfilling prophecy. I am forever grateful. Thank you for the memories and your helping hand. I look forward to seeing you for the Pass Plus! Becca 🙂

Can't praise June enough for her patience whilst teaching me to drive, i will forever remember her catch phrase "why did you do that?" As a more mature learner my confidence wasn't great in my abilities, but with Junes encouragement i passed my driving test on my third attempt, i failed on the first two attempts because of very silly mistakes on my part. June is an excellent teacher and i would highly recommend her to anyone wishing to learn in an Automatic Jan 🙂

I passed today, with help from my driving instructor Kieran who I highly recommend, brilliant driving instructor and brilliant driving school!

Outstanding Kieran!
Posted Saturday 13 Dec 2014 09:49 AM
I have really enjoyed the time I spent learning with DVDS and always looked forward to my next driving lesson. My instructor Kieran made the lessons fun (you do need to get use to his jokes/they aren’t as bad as they first seem), but it was his jokey personality that made the lessons really enjoyable and calming, which put me at ease (this is definitely important when you think about the amount of time you spend in the car with your instructor learning to drive!). I would recommend Kieran as a driving instructor to any of my friends and family, every lesson was tailored to me and what I needed to improve, rather than following an exact pre-planned schedule. This meant I could really focus on the areas I struggled with, which meant when I was faced with reversing around a corner in my driving test it didn't faze me at all. I believe that it was down to Kieran’s excellent tuition that I was able to pass 1st time with only 3 minors!!! But he didn't just teach me how to pass the test, he taught me the skills and increased my confidence to know I passed because I’m ready to drive.

Just passed my test and could not explain how scared I was before I took my classes with June. I kept doing the same mistakes but June had so much patience and kept guiding me and made me confident. I had a clearer view and understanding with her teaching techniques. I would 100% recommend her. Thank you June once again. Aruna

Passing my test with Adrian
Posted Thursday 06 Nov 2014 16:36 PM
I came to Dedhamvale driving school from a previous instructor as I was no where near the standard needed to pass my test after many lessons. With Adrian I had only 16 more lessons in a tight space of time before my test which he assured me that i could pass first time. I smashed the barrier of standards which are required after his excellent tuition and service as a driving instructor and as who i considered as a friend. I passed first time with 0 faults after failing many mock tests just days before! I will be sure to do a pass plug course with the driving school and would recommend the driving school to anyone who wants to learn to drive or anyone who has lost hope completely as they're the one's for the job.

Thank you Mario!

Had a fantastic experience learning to drive with DVD! My instructor, Mario, was patient and understanding and truly helped me to become a better driver. They don't just teach you how to pass the test, but instead work on how to make you feel confident in your abilities so that when you do pass, you know that it's because you CAN drive!

I recommend June for an automatic driving instructor, she is very friendly, considerate and patient and puts you at ease I just passed my test with her today. Thank you June for teaching me it has been a pleasure to have you for a driving instructor and I really enjoyed driving your Nissan Note 🙂

Mario - Thank you so much!!

Learning to drive can be seen as a daunting experience, and I have heard many a horror story from friends. However this is not the case with DVD! I was fortunate enough to have Mario and I could not speak more highly of him as an instructor and a person. He not only made learning to drive less daunting, but actually fun. As well as making driving enjoyable, Mario was a pleasure to be in the car with and I really looked forward to our lessons. He was flexible with timings around my job for when I could do lessons and was easy to get hold of to answer any questions. From my experience I can not speak highly enough of DVD and most importantly Mario as an instructor.

Absolutely brilliant

Adrian is by far the best driving instructor. I felt so relaxed learning to drive with Adrian. I would highly recommend him as an instructor. I was told I would need about 16 hrs of lessons but in fact passed first time with only 14 hours. Thanks so much Liann

I would highly recommend Adrian for anyone looking to start or continue driving lessons. I improved greatly in a short space of time, didn't waste money on surplus lessons, however felt confident and ready in time for the test. You are taught to a high standard of driving, feeling safe and with a good chance of passing first time!

Passed with June!

I recently passed my test (automatic) with June. She was a really good instructor and I recommend her to anyone especially if you've had difficulty in the past because she really helped my confidence with driving.

Thank You Nigel!

I was home from University for a couple of months and DVDS instructor Nigel was able to do several hours of lessons a week with me to make sure i was ready for my test. Nigel is an absolutely brilliant instructor. Thank You!!

Justin

I can't recommend Justin at DVDS enough. Not only has he helped my brother and I pass first time in the space of 2 months but he was incredibly supportive throughout and knew the whole system inside out. I felt that I was working towards a test the whole time and that I knew exactly what to expect. The school were very helpful and I'm really thankful for all Justin's guidance! Kind regards, Kaija

Lessons with Dawn

Thank you for helping me dawn I know its not be easy. If anyone else is thinking about driving and are very nervous and would like a female instructor ask for dawn. I passed my test second time around with only 40 hours driving in 4 months all credit to dawn x

Recommended by the examiners.

I was taught by Kieran to drive and passed first time. My examiner stated himself that Kieran is a very good instructor. So there you have it, take the examiners advice and call Kieran today!

I have had Justin as my instructor for the past 6 months and I couldn't have asked for a better teacher! He has been patient, calm and has helped me pass first time with just four minors. Big thanks to Justin and DVDS for providing a wonderful service and the best possible start to my life on the road!

I had been slightly anxious at learning to drive at my age as an older learner. However, from the outset June was fantastic, a really excellent instructor and a really lovely person. I found her style reassuring, informative and just what I needed to put me at ease. Just a little over 3 months later I passed first time and I have no doubt that's mainly down to June. I would thoroughly recommend her if your reading this and looking to find the right instructor and school for you. Kevin

After making a new years promise to myself to pass my test i then began doing the internet search and come across DVDS and it was to be one of the best finds on the net, i made the phone call and was then put straight into contact with their instructor Adrian, being very nervous person once i step foot in the car i was totally put at ease, instructions were easy to follow and every question (no matter how miner) were answered clear and precise i really couldn't of asked for better, unlike some companys (who would maybe say you need 30 lessons instead of 10) i was informed of how many lessons i would need and never went over that,so i knew where i stood from start to finish, i ended up passing my test on 25/2/2014 and with following all instructions i received i managed to get 0 miners, thank you kindly adrian and all at DVDS

Super June!!!
Posted Friday 18 Apr 2014 14:47 PM
Can't believe how fortunate I was to have June teaching me. After years and copious amounts of wasted time and money on other instructors I finally found the most patient, understanding and informative instructor ever! In just 10 hours June gave me the confidence, reassurance and necessary training and knowledge to pass my test. I highly recommend her as she's just amazing! My daughter will now be signing up for her lessons and I have no doubt that she will also pass very soon. DVD driving school is soooo lucky to have such a professional instructor! Thank you June!!!!

After spending £100s on another school and my Daughter failing twice we decided to call Kieran @ DVDS who passed our details on to Adrian within mins we had set up lesson for Jess. Adrian showed her new methods on her manoeuvres which was easy to understand plus he made her laugh which put her at ease. 8 hours with DVDS her third attempt on''Tuesday 22 Jan '' was a success. Myself and Jess have recommend Adrian to friends now and I will be using him next year with my Son .Thank you Adrian.

Passed First Time with June! - 16/01/14
Posted Friday 18 Apr 2014 14:44 PM
I learnt to drive with June and really can't recommend her enough! She's not only one of the most patient people I know, but also a lovely person who made me feel at ease and helped me to get to where I needed to be. With her help, I passed both my theory and driving test first time and wasn't just my instructor, but became a friend too! Thank you so much for all your help, Scarlet x

Mike is a great instructor, patient, clear and reliable. He had a very good gauge on when I should take my test, prepared me thoroughly for it, and as a consequence I passed with little trouble. Thoroughly nice bloke to boot. Many thanks, Ed.

I have recently passed my driving test. Thanks to June. I would just like to say a massive thank you as June was not only very friendly but also very patient and calm with me and made driving enjoyable (which I never thought I would say!) I have and will carry on recommending DVDS. Thanks again!

I wouldn't have wanted to learn with any other driving school. Kieran made driving enjoyable, I'm actually going to miss my lessons!

I really enjoyed my time learning to drive with Justin, throughout the whole process everything was very easy to understand and achieve. Thank you for all your patience and enjoyable lessons.

Thanks Justin

I originally started with a different driving school and came home with tears of frustration. A friend had just passed with DVD'S and couldn’t recommend Justin enough. True to expectation, he has been an amazing teacher. He’s very patient and always finds a way to adapt to suit your needs. I’ve genuinely enjoyed learning to drive with Justin and hope he can help 100's more learners like me.

Finally passed!
Posted Wednesday 19 Mar 2014 11:37 AM
I'd had over 40 hours of driving lessons with a different driving school, did my test twice and failed both times. My confidence was so low when it came to driving. I decided to change instructors and went with June from DVDs. She let me know everything I was doing wrong that was holding me back from passing and with her guidance, I finally passed my test! I'm so happy and very grateful to June. Really recommend Dedham vale driving school!

thank you June

June is a really great instructor. I passed my test first time .thank you June for your patient and encouragement. You really made the driving fun and interesting for me.
