"Passed first time and had a great time learning to drive! I've come so far in just over 40 hours of driving, it helped me so much to have such a knowledgeable and helpful instructor. I had some ups and downs with driving and sometimes I struggled, but Nigel always had the answers and encouraged me. It's been a pleasure to learn to drive with you!"

"Having had a bad experience with a previous instructor, I was really worried about learning with another. However Nigel made me feel really at ease and gave me back my confidence behind a wheel; which helped me pass my driving test first time. A really friendly and efficient driving instructor, I would recommend to anyone learing to drive."

"Nigel has not just taught both my daughters to drive, he has taught them both to be extremely safe, confident and courteous drivers. Nigel is great at problem solving, so if anyone has difficulties with a certain aspect of their driving he will always find a way round it. I suggest you book a lesson with him to see for yourself. Highly recommended!"
Karen & Phil, Parents.

Hannah from Iwade, relief at passing 2nd time, with only 3 driving faults! June 2014 Gillingham DTC
"A massive thank you to Nigel! The quality of teaching is amazing and if you haven't got a lot of confidence in driving at the start, Nigel is patient, understanding and focused on making you become a safe road user. But perhaps the most important thing is that he goes above and beyond what you would expect from an ordinary driving instructor. Thanks again!"
"Nigel was an excellent instructor and mentor for our daughter Hannah in teaching her to drive. He was very reliable and helpful and most importantly really helped build her confidence despite her anxiety about starting to learn to drive. I saw this first hand when I joined them both on a lesson. Nigel was patient, understanding, articulate and humorous which resulted in a relaxed environment. Hannah did not have the nervousness that she had when she first started her lessons. We could not have asked for anything more from a driving instructor and Nigel would be a first class choice for you. Thank you for helping Hannah in passing her test and to be a confident driver. Anyone looking for a driving instructor could not wish for anyone better. Absolutely A *, 10/10!"
Paul & Mandy, Parents.
Sarah from St Mary's Island, passed 1st time, with only 1 driving fault! June 2014 Gillingham DTC
"After a year learning to drive without formal tuition, Nigel whipped my driving into shape, undoing a number of bad habits I'd picked up and fully prepared me for the practical test which I managed to pass first time with just one fault! The lessons were well prepared and intensive, I learn't more in ten lessons than I had in a whole year!"
Peter from Strood, passed 1st time, with ZERO driving faults! June 2014 Gillingham DTC

"Thank you so much for all your support and encouragement, I would recommend you to anyone wanting to learn to drive.

I couldn't have done it witout you."
Jordan, Mother of 1.
Nathan from Gravesend, passed 1st time with only 4 driving faults! May 2014 Gillingham DTC
"I would highly recommend Nigel to anyone. Not only is he the best person to help you pass but also to give you confidence to become a good driver. I wanted to pass as quick as possible as I don't like getting the bus and I passed from start to finish in under 3 months on my first attempt. Nigel was able to push me in the right manner to help me achieve my goal of passing quick. However Nigel challenged me and gave me confidence to not only look for just a pass but to pass with as few minors as possible of which I was happy with 4! Thanks for all your help!"
Alex from Maidstone, passed with only 2 driving faults! May 2014 Maidstone DTC
"Thank you for everything, especially your persistence in getting me through. See you on the roads!"
"What can I say about Nigel? He's sharp and is able to tailor your needs; whether it's a lack of confidence or experience you suffer from, he rises to the challenge. I personally work in London and started the job whilst halfway through my tutelage. Nigel kept me on track and made what I initially thought a chore, into something that was thoroughly enjoyable. Admittedly, I am fantastic at dodging contact and I commend Nigel on his commitment to not give up on me, which in the end ensured a result with a pass. If you are considering Nigel as an instructor, forget the other candidates, delete their numbers, forget their names, as Nigel is the one for you."
"I have just completed a course of driving lessons with Nigel and thankfully, have just passed my test. Nigel was able to tailor my lessons precisely to my learning needs and level of experience and thanks to his teaching style I was able to learn to drive well enough, and with enough confidence, to pass first time and with fewer lessons than what I have been told most instructors would suggest is average.
Nigel did a great deal to improve my confidence and knew exactly which areas of my driving to focus on to get me suitably prepared for the test and more importantly, for a life of motoring beyond the test.
Nigel is incredibly enthusiastic as an instructor and I can say without doubt that he is far more concerned with producing competent drivers and maintaining his uniquely high pass rate than he is in making money from students. In fact, he was even more ecstatic than me when I actually passed!"
"Nigel is a fantastic instructor, not only making the lessons interesting and helpful, but also being personable and making the whole experience as good as possible. I couldn't have asked for a better instructor to guide and help me. Thanks Nigel for helping me pass!"
"Thanks Nigel for all the time, effort and encouragement you've given me in learning to drive."
"I'd like to say a huge thank you to Nigel for being such a patient, kind and amusing instructor. After changing instructors due to lack of progress I was impressed by the quality of Nigel's teaching. I increased in driving ability and confidence rapidly, which lead to me passing my driving test first time. Thank you so much Nigel for all your help and support. Also to any future students...Nigel is THE Man!"
"Georgia was over the moon when she passed first time with only 2 minors. She didn't enjoy driving with her previous instructor, but Nigel changed all that and quickly built her confidence and skills. Georgia now loves driving and at some point will be taking her Pass Plus course. Nigel is very approachable to pupils and parents alike, and always has time to chat about any concerns. Thanks Nigel."
Anita & Rob, Parents.
"Thank you so much for taking the time to teach me how to drive. I used to day dream of driving when I was a teenager but never thought I'd see the day when I would actually drive. It was nice to pass the practical test on my first attempt and I have been driving everyday since."
Adina, Mother of 2.
"I was almost losing hope of driving let alone passing the driving test because of the wrong selection of a previous instructor. I then came to Nigel through a recommendation and things changed instantly. I'm really grateful to you Nigel for correcting my mistakes which I developed whilst with the previous instructor and building confidence in me. You are the best and most amazing teacher and I would highly recommend you to our University staff and students. Thanks again Nigel for training me to become a safe and confident driver."
"I would recommend Nigel as he pushed me hard to get to test standard and it all paid off by me passing first time with only 1 minor. I'm very happy the way you taught me throughout my driving lessons, very honest as well. Thanks for everything."
"I was only with Nigel for a few weeks, however he helped me get out of my bad habits that had not been previously corrected and I passed my test first time, which I may not have otherwise done."
"My daughter had been learning to drive with another instructor, who stopped teaching. We came to Nigel for help and he gave her a fair assessment, allowing her to book her test and helping her work towards it....she passed first time!"
"The experience I have gained by having Nigel as an instructor has been invaluable. Not only is he a top guy, but I could not have asked for a better teacher. He has helped me build my confidence with driving no end, I cannot thank him enough."
"Can't thank Nigel enough for helping me to pass first time, he became a friend over my lessons. Nigel is a brilliant instructor who will push you to get the best out of you. He also knows what the examiners are looking for. The way Nigel teaches you is informative and funny at the same time with many games it is never a dull moment while learning, but he was always fully focused on making sure you are a safe driver. If you want an excellent driving instructor go with Nigel. Thanks again for teaching me to drive safely."

"Nigel is a very good instructor, willing to go out of his way to ensure you pass. He was very accommodating when it came to my previous driving experience as a full automatic licence holder and helped me build on this experience, as well as always ensuring there was a challenge! If you are thinking about making the switch from an automatic to a real car, (or just looking to learn to drive) look no further"

Charlotte from Twydall, passed 1st time with only 1 driving fault! Sept 2013 Gillingham DTC

I can't thank Nigel enough and have already recommended him to my sister. Cheers Nigel I couldn't have done it without you!"

"I first joined the AA with the aim of having a driving licence within 2 months. Mr Nigel was the professional assigned to me." In my time with him I can vouch for his sincere and experienced coaching skill. I was able to attain a comfortable pass at the 1st attempt in this duration. An upright professional who gauges your extent of driving skill very early and sets the right course of action to attain the all important pass with ease and more importantly make you a licence holder with good driving sense. I am glad to have had you as my Master. Thanks to you once again."

"Learning to drive with Nigel was a great experience. I had limited time to pass so I done an intensive course and he made sure I was well practised and prepared allowing me to pass first time with ZERO driving faults.

Aneil from Longfield, passed 1st time with only 2 driving faults! July 2013 Gillingham DTC

In conclusion Nigel shows deep understanding of what the examiners are looking for and shows you how to be safe on the roads after your test. Many thanks for helping me pass first time."

I would strongly recommend Nigel to anyone who is not as confident on the roads as they would like to be, he really helped me.
