I was recommended Tony Hislop with New Driver by a friend and from the first lesson, I always felt safe and reassured. I was very nervous about driving fast to begin with but I broke that barrier and made good progress in that aspect by constantly being set small targets and being encouraged by my instructor. I thoroughly enjoyed learning to drive and looked forward to all of my lessons. Now I am insured on my mum's car and can't wait to start driving myself around for a change!
I would like to say a huge thanks to Pat, my driving instructor for getting me through my test and making my driving lessons an enjoyable experience. So easy to get a long with, friendly and patient. He gave great advice and helped me to improve.
I would recommend Pat to anybody who wants to learn to drive, with his calming ways, punctuality and ability to teach.
It was a pleasure to have him as my instructor.
I really enjoyed my time spent learning to drive and I had a great experience with a great teacher!
I don't say this about many people but Tony Hislop is one of the best people I have ever met!
Thank you so much for you patience with me and i'm very pleased I chose you as an instructor I wouldn't have been able to do it without your determination and hard work! Been out on my own for a drive scary stuff but not as bad as I expected, anyway im rabbling on so what im trying to say is Thank you so much you're a star and I will definitely recommend you to all my friends!
When I first started my driving lessons with New Driver I thought I would never be able to get my head round the main functions of a car in time for my test. When I first met Steve he greeted me this a friendly smile and made me feel very welcome in his presents, I don't think I could've got any more lucky with the instructor I got given to guide me through the nervous road the laid ahead. Steve had great ways and techniques of teaching me and made it as easy as possible for me. Thanks to Steve I passed my driving test first time which I didn't think in a million years would be possible. Overall I think Steve is an excellent instructor and I would definitely recommend him for nervous and apprehensive first time drivers.
Pat was a helpful, patient and friendly instructor. He taught in a way that was suited to me, focusing on my weaknesses in driving, as well keeping up practice with the things I was good at. He was flexible to give me lessons most of the time during the week. He always said the he's "not only teaching me to pass my test, but teaching me to drive in the real world" which I feel holds true, as he gave me lots of tips and tricks along the way about general use of the car. All in all, I felt he pushed me to do my best, and with his help I managed to, which demonstrates his ability as a driving instructor.
To whom it may concern
I would like to say how pleased I am at passing my test it was all down to steve's excellent teaching skills. He kept his calm when moments got hairy, and kept patients when most would have lost hope! But he believed I could achieve, and push me to reach my goals and I thank him for that, and thank you for putting me on to him he is a credit to your company
Tony Reed,taught me to drive,& got me through my test.I never would have achieved that with any other teacher.He was amazing.thankyou
Below are some of the testimonials that we have received from pupils who have Discovered Their Freedom with New Driver.
Just sending an email in regards to my practical driving test pass today. I couldn't have done it without my instructor Steve Lawrence who is based in the Southampton area. He taught me everything I needed to know and more for my test and my future driving.
Very very good instructor!!! A++++
"Having had plenty of driving tests in the past before joining New Driver, I am so thankful to have came across Steve. He is an amazing teacher and makes everything enjoyable. I now love driving! Not only did I pass first time with Steve, but I passed with zero faults. I wish Steve all the best in the future. Thank you very much for such a fun time!!!!"
"Having had a few driving lessons prior to Steve, with a different driving instructor who made me despise driving, Steve had a tough challenge ahead of him. I never imagined passing my driving test. He believed in me and supported me in gaining back my confidence to learn to drive again. His hard work, time and effort was encouraging and made driving possible for me. Steve made driving fun and I always looked forward to my lessons - I was sad to say goodbye when I passed my test! I will recommend Steve 100%! I wish him all the best for the future and I know all his present and future pupils will succeed with him. A big thanks to Steve!!! Freedom is amazing.."
I wanted to let you know what a great experience I had with your instructor, David. He was very patient and knew exactly how to pace my re-learning as I am an experience driver from the US. He also explained the features to expect in the Practical Exam and accompanied me to the exam as well. I would highly recommend David and New Driver to anybody looking to pass and get on the road. Well done David!
I just wanted to say how amazing Adam is as an instructor. I highly reccomend him to anyone else. I have just passed my test and Adam believed in me and my ability. He is a top guy and an asset to New Driver and all his pupils. THANKS ADAM!!
My name is Muinat, Pat was my instructor, Pat taught recently and I had my test today and pass without any minor. I am very pleased with the way Pat handled my lessons, he came on time and was very structured in all the areas we covered.
Pat was very firm and at the same time very encouraging. He gave a pep talk before the test which gave me a huge lift and confidence and guess what got me through the test.
Please pass my gratitude to Pat
Thank you Pat
I meant to send this testimonial quite a while ago but never got around to it! I do apologise for the delay!
Mark was my driver instructor from March to September. I just want to highlight that he has been patient, encouraging, and believed in me probably more than I believed in myself that I will be passing first time!!! I cannot say that I was a natural driver and I remember Mark making that remark in many occasions!!! He was professional overall! I can now look back and feel that I actually confronted one of my main fears of “driving” which was haunting me for so many years!!!! Being a working mother, passing my test meant so much as it opened so many doors to freedom!!!
The team at the office came across very helpful and warm! I think the main person we dealt with was Tasha!
I would definitely recommend your agency to people around me as even the lessons are at a reasonable price!!!
Many thanks !
"Always patient & supportive and made learning ot drive a great experience! Thanks for everything Vince"
Kong Chung Ng
Hi, My name is Kong Chung Ng, I called a week ago to book a couple of lessons before my practical exam. I am an experienced driver from the USA, so I only needed a mock practical test to get ready.
John called, we set up a mock practical test last Wed morning. It went well. I learnt a lot. I valued the lesson enough to ask for a second lesson last Friday morning. The real practical test was Friday afternoon.
I am vey satisfied with the lessons. I received valuable information that contributed to my passing of my practical tes. I can without reservation recommend John.
Thanks very much,
This is just a quick email to say how happy I have been with my
driving instructor Levi.
After the first one hour lesson I knew he was the driving instructor
to teach me. I then had ten more two hour lessons and passed my test
first time with two minors.
I would recommend Levi & New Driver to anyone!
Felt i had to send this email to you regarding my experience with New Driver and my instructor Matt.
From the moment I made the telephone call to you and Matt then contacted me it was all positive. Thanks to Matt after just 26 hours total lessons i passed my driving test, yes i had had lessons on and off with another driving school but that amounted to approx 8 hours.
I am so pleased to have passed, and the confidence that Matt gave me when instructing me was unbelievable.
Thankyou New Driver and Big Big thankyou to Matt.
"Really good instructor who is laid back but very good at teaching at
the same time which makes you feel safe. We had fun lessons where the
time flys by. I was nervous for my test but Ben had faith in me and I
passed on 16th June. Thanks for all your help and encouragement."
