Learner driver testimonials

Here are just some of the students who learned to drive and passed their theory and practical tests with the help of Ants Driving School.

Nick – refresher lessons

I had a series of refresher lessons because I'd barely driven since getting my driver's license years ago. Ant made a clear plan for a series of lessons which made the best use of our time.
He boosted my confidence for driving on motorways, showed me some excellent techniques for manoeuvres and was a pleasure to learn with. Recommended.

Antony has been a great driving instructor, I can’t thank him enough for his help and encouragement, I passed my test first time and on the day of my test he knew how nervous I was and really helped calm my nerves.
Not once in any of my lessons did he shout at me when I made a mistake but instead talked me through my errors in which I could take in and improve on. Antony has helped me become a lot more confident with my driving since I first started my lessons with him and I would really recommend him as a driving instructor.


Oli – test pass

I was fairly nervous about learning to drive again after initially having a few lessons several years ago. I felt I didn't learn as much as I'd hoped with my previous instructor and I found it hard to relax and enjoy my lessons with him.
As soon as I took my first lesson with Antony I knew it would be a different experience. Antony was friendly, relaxed, and both extremely thorough and clear in the way he teaches.
Thanks to Antony I passed first time, and I would highly recommend anyone learning to drive to choose Antony as their instructor.

I passed my driving test at the first attempt, so when I say Antony is brilliant, that statement is a fact and well justified! From the very first lesson, he evaluated the gaps needed for a first time pass and he worked patiently with me to get there.
Each lesson was carried out with a friendly smile and he instilled confidence even when I fell short. Antony will not only teach you what you need to pass but also how to be a good driver.
I highly recommend him. Thanks Antony :)

During my learning experience I've had 3 different instructors and Antony was by far the best. He patient, professional and most importantly articulate in his approach to teaching. He would never overcomplicate things and tailors his teaching methods to best suit so you.
He also injects the passion and belief that you will pass first time which I did!
It's obvious to me that he takes great pride in his work and would / have highly recommend him to all learner drivers


Rachel – test pass

I decided to stay learning with Ant when he started his own driving school, as I had learned more with him in one lesson than I had with my previous instructor in four lessons.
I was very nervous about being behind the wheel, but Ant’s patient and friendly approach made me feel confident and relaxed. He has a very logical teaching approach, so things sink in quickly and stay with you.
He is reliable and friendly and really creates a perfect and fun environment for learning to drive. I have already recommended him to several people as I am sure I could not have passed so quickly with any other instructor.


Frankie – test pass

Antony was a brilliant driving instructor. I never thought I would pass first time when I started but he gave me confidence. He never made me feel intimidated or stupid when I was having an off day. I could tell he took the extra time to explain things to me in a way he knew I would understand. I found Ant through a recommendation from a friend and have since passed his name onto someone else. I would definitely recommend him to anyone thinking about learning to drive who wants a friendly, honest and encouraging instructor.

I would recommend him to other learner drivers for sure.


Judy – test pass

Antony is an exceptional driving instructor and I would recommend him to anyone. I had tried two other driving schools before meeting him as I just didn't feel comfortable with them.
Antony however was friendly, easy to chat with and made the whole experience of learning to drive a fun one. I am so happy to have passed first time and wish I had more friends learning to drive so I could recommend him to them.

As good as it gets... So good that I've arranged with Anthony to start instructing my son on his 17th birthday.
I've just passed my Taxi Test with Ants Driving School and can't praise him enough.
Friendly, flexible, great value, caring and considerate, in-touch with my specific needs and got me through my second driving test in absolutely no time at all!


Danny – test pass

Danny, learner driver feels great about passing with Ants Driving School

Had a great time learning to drive, passing feels great! Helpful driving instructor who I would definitely recommended. I am thinking about a pass plus course now as it will save on my insurance costs.


Sarah – test pass

Sarah, happy to pass her practical driving test with Ants Driving School

I passed my driving test first time with Antony when he worked for BSM, he was always friendly, approachable and professional. I always felt comfortable with him and looked forward to my lessons each week as they were fun but at all times safe, he was always reliable and punctual and worked with me to fit lessons in around my specific shift times. I was always aware at how i was progressing with my driving and felt i could have an input in to the way i was being taught. Antony is an excellent driving instructor and i would recommend him to anyone who wants to learn to drive.

Antony is an excellent instructor: he's been incredibly patient and very professional at all times. When I found it difficult to do something, e.g. reverse parking, he would always identify why I struggled and then adapt his teaching style to my needs.
