Best driving instructor in the world!!!

I have had lessons with two different driving instructors previously, but until I started learning with stu I didn't really get it. He got me passed in 5 weeks with only one minor! :) and I don't even have my own car to practise with!! Would highly highly recommend!!

    Stuart is a great driving instructor that takes the time to explain and go over anything you are unsure about, he does not rush you and he also offers great theory test courses. I highly recommend stu to anybody learning to drive. A*****

    I'd put driving off for a while before I started as I was nervous; but Stu made me feel relaxed whilst being very friendly and professional. I passed first time and would highly recommend him!! Thank you Stu! :-)

    Brilliant instructor !!


    I had a different instructor previous, but got on really well with Stu. He helps you with anything your unsure about and teaches you above and beyond what is needed to pass your test. Fully recommend him!

    Quality Instructor


    Stu was a really good instructor, helping me pass first time. He creates a really relaxed learning atmosphere which helps you keep your mind on the important things. Not only does he teach you to pass your test but also to be a confident driver which helps get rid of any nerves when you finally go driving by yourself. Honestly couldn't recommend him enough...legend!

    Passed first time


    I had never driven before my first lesson. Thanks to Stu's calm, patient, expert tuition in just a few short months I had passed my test first time. I couldn't recommend him highly enough.

    Stu is a great instructor who explains things in ways you can understand; giving you friendly banter as you learn! He doesn't just teach you to pass your test, but how to be a safe driver too! I can't thank him enough for his time and effort. I highly recommend him! :)
