'' He gave me confidence behind the wheel''
I have had three different driving instructors and not one has helped me as much as Bob. He went through every step of the way in detail. He is a great guy, very easy to get along with and great company. I can not thank you enough!

''Yes I Can, Yes I Did''!
I had been with previous instructors who simply were unable to give me the confidence I needed, nor have the chilled approach, that Bob was able to deliver.
After five failed tests Bob got me over the finish line and I could not be more grateful!
Yes I Can, Yes I Did!

''Despite my nerves, he helped me to pass first time''.
If you want an instructor who knows the driving test and routes like the back of his hand, Bob is your man. He has a huge amount of patience, and made sure I was fully prepared for my test. Despite my nerves, he helped me to pass first time. I have had two other driving instructors in the past, and I can not recommend Bob higher. Thank you for all your help!

'' Top man Bob''
Most importantly, Bob is a great guy and very easy to get along with. As an instructor he pays attention to all the fine details with your driving and is a very supportive and patient instructor. Both my brother and I passed with Bob and we would most definitely recommend him.

''My twin brother passed his test with Bob and he came highly recommended.''
I passed my test for the first time due to the professionalism of Bob. My twin brother passed his test with Bob and he came highly recommended.

''I gained confidence behind the wheel in no time''!
Bob is not only a great instructor, but a great guy. I felt comfortable in the car with him, He understands that everyone will be a bit shaky when first learning and helps you gain a first hand knowledge of the roads with different routes and manoeuvres. I found every lesson, not only useful but exciting and fun and always looked forward to my lessons! I'd recommend Bob to anyone out there looking to learn to drive!

''he took me from someone with zero confidence in himself to passing his test first time within 6 weeks''
I was put in contact with Bob from 2 friends he helped pass their test and they highly recommended him, when I first met Bob I told him I was feeling very nervous and lost all my confidence in my ability behind the wheel but he put me at ease right away and by the end of the first lesson I was feeling confident an couldn't wait to get out on my next one, his knowledge of driving and little tips he gives you help so much when it comes to the day of your test, he took me from someone with zero confidence in himself to passing his test first time within 6 weeks of meeting, so I will highly recommend Bob to anyone and say a big thanks to him for his help!!

''made every minute of the lessons count; his advice was sound, relevant, direct''
Having moved from the US a few years ago, I was a bit grumpy about having to start over from square one as a learner driver.
Bob was the perfect instructor to help me through the transition. He showed me exactly what to expect on the exam and what the examiners would be looking out for.
Unlike other instructors I\'d tried (and abandoned), Bob made every minute of the lessons count; his advice was sound, relevant, direct, and plainly worded, and there was no aimless driving around.
Thanks to Bob I passed the practical test on the first attempt and with confidence.
I would happily and eagerly recommend him to anyone in need of a driving teacher.

''having him as my instructor was very enjoyable''.
Bob is a fantastic driving instructor. His calm approach and good tips really helped me become confident on the roads. Bob helped me pass first time with his patience when teaching, his great professionalism as he would never be late for lessons and he was very well educated about driving.
Apart from him being very helpful with the driving he is a great guy and having him as my instructor was very enjoyable.
I can't recommend him highly
Thanks for everything Bob!

'' I was really nervous.
But Bob helped me to pass first time''
Bob is a great driving instructor!
He was recommended to me after I had had 3 different instructors in the past.
But not doing very well I was really nervous.
But Bob helped me to pass first time within a matter of weeks, he is patient
and has lots of tips to help learning a lot easier.
Highly recommended! Thanks bob!

''completely committed to getting me my driving license''.
Bob has been an excellent driving instructor, Bob was completely committed to getting me my driving license.
There was a clear plan for what we were doing in each lesson and instructions were delivered in a way that meant you could see your own improvement in every single lesson.
The knowledge of driving and
the correct way to complete manoeuvres is first rate as is the delivery. Thanks to Bob's instructions I turned from a complete novice who had never been behind the wheel of a car to having the
confidence to pass my test on the first attempt.
The visual learning tools Bob provides and the reading and practice tests he provides are clear and give you all you need to know to pass your theory and your test.
I can comprehensively recommend Bob to anyone looking to pass their test and would like to thank him for getting me to actually enjoy driving whilst I was learning, and of course for getting me through the test on the first attempt. Cheers Bob!

'' brilliant learning experience''!
Bob has been a brilliant instructor over the last couple of months! While being nervous to start off with he puts you at ease and empowers you to become the best driver you can be!
The man his eyes in the back of his head and will give you constant encouragement throughout the learning process!
An excellent teacher, tells you what you have done right and what can be improved on.
He is up to date will all current affairs in the driving world and uses loads of apps on his IPAD to give the visual learner a understanding of specific manoeuvres which I loved! Several off my friends have passed with him and are current learner!
It has been a brilliant learning experience! I will definitely be taking the pass plus once I get up and running with a motor!
He has been a friend/mentor throughout and I couldn't recommend him enough! Cheers Bob

'' didn't think I was any good but he soon reassured me''
Bob is a fantastic instructor,
I was nervous to begin my driving lessons and didn't think I was any good but he soon reassured me and in no time I was taking my test which I passed first time thanks to
The lessons are enjoyable, extremely useful and worth every penny!

''If you wish to pass, he's your man''!!
Bob has been a brilliant
mentor throughout and has thought me how to drive from scratch. I passed second time round with a clear score card.
I have recommend him to a number of my friends hoping to take their practical in near future. A couple of which are current students of his.
As soon as he felt I was ready to apply for my practical test he pushed me to do so.
Bob has a systematic approach in the way he teaches and was able to adapt a learning style that suited me (In the end..). Professional and punctual at all times, will develop your confidence, but correct you where appropriate. Monitors your progress with a score card and very communitive, debriefing after each lesson.
Over all a gent with a sarcastic sense of humour. If you wish to pass, he's your man!!

''infectious enthusiasm and professionalism towards driving''
After driving with Bob for around nine months, I can safely say he is a driving instructor who is committed to excellence. His dedication, infectious enthusiasm and professionalism towards driving is on a level which myself and the rest of his students aspire to reach.
On the other hand, Bob is also a fantastic bloke and will help you develop the skills and confidence you need to become an assured driver. Cheers Bob!

Having had lessons for a couple of months, I can safety say that Bob is an excellent driving instructor and I could not recommend him highly enough.
He consistently gives quality service aided with professional knowledge and experience.
Add that to quality sense of humour and friendly manner, I would not have wanted to learn with anyone else.
Thanks for everything Bob!

He is incredibly patient, reliable and his teaching style is very clear and friendly.
I had a real problem with test nerves, but Bob assured me I could do it and this gave me the confidence to keep at it.
