No sorry
What is your pass rate?
Pass rates for individual driving instructors are very difficult and time consuming to track as they constantly change.  However, the Automatic Driving School and Paul Loader can boast of an above average pass rate.  Please see the reviews and testimonials left by other students.
What driving test cenre do you use?
I only use the Basingstoke test centre.
Do you offer intensive driving courses?
No, I do not offer intensive driving courses as I do not believe they are a good way for any student to learn to drive safely. 
What payment methods do you accept?
You can pay by cash or by debit / credit card.  If you are paying for a block of lessons you could also pay by bank transfer.
Where do I meet you for a lesson?
You can organise a automatic driving lesson around your own needs, so you can arrange pick up and drop off locations in advance.  It is nearly always the case that we will come and collect you – you do not need to travel to us, unless you live outside of Basingstoke and you are meeting us in Basingstoke.

I was taking lessons with Paul for a year, mainly building on my confidence, I then passed my test 1st time in May 2016, with the support and patience of Paul. I would totally recommend him.
