The Best Experience Ever

Callia C

I had a really great experience with this driving school! I had Simon who helped me boost my confidence when I first started which allowed me to enjoy learning to drive all the way up until I passed my test! Thank you for all your help!

Gemma

I had Mandy as my instructor and she was absolutely amazing! I suffered with anxiety and a fear on on-coming traffic but she soon turned me into a confident ‘natural’ driver. She has endless patience and is a really nice friendly lady who will soon put even the most nervous learner at ease and build up their confidence and driving skills. Can not recommend her and DVDS highly enough! 5 star driving school, 5 star instructor

Learning experience from Richard was great. Very easy to talk to and made driving as easy as possible through his teaching. Highly recommend

I had lessons with Hayley and had the most lovely experience. She really helped me build my skill and confidence in a short amount of time and was always willing to go the extra mile 🙂
