PASSED MY TEST!!! My daughter passed with Pass Driving School and came highly recommended and at age 41 I finally bit the bullet and started learning to drive,soo glad I did. Paul Stevens was a great auto instructor and I felt very at ease with him, he was very calm and patient with me ,and those nerves grew into confidence in no time at all.Thanks again .

Lee Stone

Pass and Daniel.Thank you for your patience,perseverance and continued encouragement.I was initially very nervous about learning to drive, however it has been a pleasure getting to know you and I couldn't have asked for a better instructor.I highly recommend Pass and in particular Dan to anyone looking for an automatic instructor. I will miss our weekly chats. I’m thrilled finally to have my independence and the confidence to drive in my own car.Thank you.

Tina Raven

Really loved lessons with John. Myself and my partner passed with John.Highly recommend him to anyone looking to learn to drive.I attempted to learn to drive at 18 with another company but I was too nervous and gave up. Came to Pass through referrals from my friends and felt much more at ease.John was very reassuring and helped build up my confidence .

Amber Whiffen

I started off my Pass journey with the lovely Sarah down in Whitstable. She recommended sticking with Pass when I came back to Maidstone. For the past 5 months I have been with Shaun. He’s so patient and helpful , despite me repeatedly putting his car into the kerb and stalling every 5 seconds! Due to Shaun’s support I feel so confident in my own abilities, I passed my test . I would highly recommend both these instructors to anyone.

Beth Lee
