I would like to say a huge thank you to Richard Graham who has been my instructor since December. I would highly recommend him , he’s very patient and very informative and although I didn’t pass first time, he helped me to learn where I was going wrong to pass today. He made me feel very comfortable from the start and I am so thankful .

I passed my driving test FIRST time Wednesday. I would highly recommend Pass Driving School. My driving instructor Joelle was the most helpful instructor. She made me feel at ease and helped me pass my test in a short space of time.

I cannot thank Michael enough for his patience and support throughout my lessons. He made me feel so calm when I was in the car and I passed FIRST time! I enjoyed learning to drive with him so much so that I have recommended him to my mum for refresher lessons, my partner to learn to drive and my sister to learn to drive!

Great experience with James Medhurst, Canterbury. He took on my son Hugh for refresher lessons when he came home from Uni, just two weeks before his second test. James gave him the clarity he needed to get his confidence back and he passed with just 3 minor errors. Wish he’d found James originally. Thanks so much, would highly recommend.

I had my first lesson with Steve (F) on the 13th May and right from the very beginning I knew I was in good hands! Steve is one of the most amazing and patient instructors and although he was my only instructor, he's by far my favourite! I am so grateful that Pass have such a welcoming attitude to everyone who wants to learn to drive and the skills I have learnt will stick with me forever! I'm over the moon that I passed my driving test and am so ready to get out in my car!
