“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.

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, highly recommended,
