I would recommend Pass Driving School.I had a great instructor Steve( B) , friendly , good sense of humour and made my lessons enjoyable .

I would definitely recommend learning with this driving school as I passed my driving test on my FIRST ( and only) try last week with Pass, I couldn’t have asked for a more patient and reassuring instructor in Neetu, who greatly helped to reduce my nerves to the extent that I now feel comfortable driving without guidance. Thanks for all your help !

Thank you once again Yomi ! I couldn't have had done it without you and your belief in me. I'm still buzzing! You're such a brilliant instructor I couldn't have been in better hands!!


I was very scared when I started to drive initially and was convinced I would never be any good at it. After stopping and starting I finally committed to wanting to pass and Mandy was so calm and collected, teaching me to drive without feeling nervous.Unfortunately due to COVID I was unable to get a test for 14 mths. Finally I passed with 3 minors.That was all thanks to Mandy. I don’t think I would have the confidence and skills if not for her. I could not recommend her enough.
