Very good experience with Pass Driving School, would 100 % recommend. Had lessons with my father Dave Yeatman who knows what he is doing. Pays attention, meaning he can cater lessons to the individual ensuring you get the best out of the lesson and are test ready. I passed FIRST time after only 18 hours of driving , this was due to being given confidence and flexibility with a no nonsense attitude .

Dale Yeatman

I learnt to drive with James Brewster in Canterbury .He is very friendly and patient and really helped me to gain my confidence with driving and develop my knowledge. I would highly recommend him .

Amber Groves

I would highly recommend Pass, as the parent of a daughter (who suddenly wanted to learn to drive in a limited time span), I contacted Pass and the office manger was fabulous arranging everything in a short time . The instructor was brilliant, arrived when she said she would , totally flexible. I wish my instructors had been this good!
As a parent you want your children to have the best, well with Vanessa and Claire at Pass they certainly are .

Tony Buckley

Passed FIRST time thanks to Mandy in the East Kent Folkestone area .My brother had her before and I’m sure my sister will have Mandy soon enough. She made getting behind the wheel comfortable and enjoyable .

Laurence Whiting

Had a great learning experience at Pass Driving School. Had an amazing instructor Ilias, who was very friendly and patient and I will miss our lessons. I would definitely recommend Pass Driving School .
