I have had two driving instructor before I met Paul Loader. Paul changed my bad view of instructor. He was patient, encouraging and professional while teaching me. He is more like a family instructor has he taught my Husaband, family friend and now me. I will recommend him because you sure will achieve your aim of leaning to drive in a safe way.

Paul was incredibly patient with me during our lessons. It was a great experience and supported my progress by unpicking the areas I was struggling with after each lesson. He is a great instructor and makes you feel relaxed and comfortable in the drivers seat. I have enjoyed my lessons and would definitely recommend him to anyone who is a bit nervous like me! I couldn’t have passed first time around without his help. Thanks Paul!

Sanaa Humid

I was hesitant about starting my lessons with such a short amount of time between starting to learn again and passing my test I had about a Month before my theory expired. I was nervous and Paul put me at ease and I couldn’t of done it without him. Genuine nice guy and took the time and effort to work of what knowledge I did already have. I passed my test today first time. Whoop Thank you Paul

Andrea Frewer

Paul was great and helped me pass my driving test on the first go. I had been driving for about 10 years before coming to the UK and he helped take the skills I had an sharpen them so I could safely drive here. He spent as much time on any skill I needed and I went into my test confident I would pass. Highly recommend!

Brandi Linthwaite

Paul is a really good teacher who helped me to pass both my theory and practical tests. During every lesson he made sure I had a good understanding of everything I was being taught, and was happy to spend as much time as I needed on each manoeuvre. He was also able to answer all my questions and was happy to explain things as many times as I needed. He talked me through the test beforehand and made sure I knew what to expect on test day, which I found really reassured me as I was very nervous. I couldn’t be more grateful to him for helping me to pass.

Bella Vallis

Although I passed my theory and practical 1st time I can’t take all the credit. As they say your only as good as your teacher so credit goes to Paul for getting me through a nightmare test day. He’s a calm knowledgeable teacher and came recommended to me via family and friends and I would recommend time and time again. So if your looking for a driving instructor, look no further you’ve found the best Basingstoke thanks Paul.

Paul took me on as a nervous wreck after failing to progress with a different driving instructor, he has the patience of a saint and I couldn’t have passed without him. I cant recommend him highly enough, he does a fantastic job at building reassurance and confidence without the need to pressure or belittle. Thanks for everything Paul, you’ve been a star.

I would never have been able to have passed the test first time, without Paul’s calm and patient attitude in teaching me to drive. A true perfectionist who cares about and encourages his pupils to get the best out of themselves in their driving. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Karema Whitworth

I was a bit late in life arriving to driving – I had about 10 lessons with Paul and passed first time with only two minor faults. Paul is a very relaxed instructor that gives you confidence and gives you the room to learn and apply… highly recommended,

Marc Redstall

Paul is an excellent driving instructor with a lot of patience and understanding. He gives you advice and feedback on your progress. I feel more confident with my driving thanks to him, I would recommend him to anyone,

Tina Taylor

I had several years experience driving an automatic car in the U.S, followed by a break of several years not driving at all in the U.K. I started my first lesson extremely nervous about driving on the ‘wrong’ side of the car and the ‘wrong’ side of the road, but Paul quickly helped me find my confidence. We both soon realised that he didn’t need to teach me how to drive, but he needed to teach me how to pass the test. Thanks to Paul’s helpful tips and feedback, I passed first time with only two minor faults and wondered why it took me so long to get driving again. Thanks Paul!

Tracey Head

Paul is a great instructor. He talks to you about what YOU want and what you NEED! Paul has a great ability to analyse strengths and weaknesses and during our lessons we really worked on both until I was ready to pass my test, and I did! Thank you Paul for all your hard work.
