Passed my test with John King. Best instructor I had! Had issues with my first instructor from another driving but John was happy to pick up,and find where I was at in my driving and even through the COVID pandemic the lessons were still as beneficial. Highly recommend Pass Driving School and John King.

Had the best driving instructor with Shaun from Pass! He helped me loads and always had ways to explain tricky things I couldn’t get.Would 100% recommend .

Harry Palmer

I can not recommend Alex highly enough.I had tried several times before to pass . At the tender age of 31 I went with Pass and Alex got me through the test .I cannot thank him and Pass enough.If you are after a driving instructor you can’t go wrong with Alex .

Chris JM

After about a year of driving due to COVID I passed FIRST time with my instructor Patrick and I cannot thank him enough. He made me feel so comfortable from the first lesson and it continued throughout. He is purely focused on his students and insures you have the confidence you need . I don’t have a bad thing to say. I can’t thank him enough giving me and my family the freedom and independence I worked so hard for. You are truly a legend !
