Read what the parents of some of my past students have to say:

“Our 18yr old son Darren was very apprehensive about starting to learn to drive. Gavin very quickly allayed all his fears and our son now looks forward to taking his driving lessons, feels at ease and is progressing really well. We were recommended by family friends and would not hesitate doing the same.”
Mr & Mrs Edmead – Wallington

“Hi Gavin, I thought Alex’s driving was very professional. He is a confident and safe driver. I feel he had very good tuition from you. I feel safe in the car with him. And being a class 1 heavy goods driver I couldn’t of taught him better myself. You will also be recommended to anybody I know who is looking to do there driving test.”
Andy Mapley

“My father was very impressed with your lesson today”
Van – Customer’s father who sat in the rear of the car during the lesson

“Our 17 year old daughter passed first time with Gavin after approximately 30 hours of tuition. Gavin is very patient, reliable and ultimately taught our daughter to drive safely, added to which excellent value for money. We were so happy with the service received, now that our son has turned 17 it was given that Gavin would be teaching him to. James has subsequently gone on to pass his test first time as well.”
Mrs Edwards

“Hi Gavin,
Your mum was right. You really are a good driving instructor. Thanks for all the effort you gave to Jade to get her through her driving test first time. I have been out with her in the car and I am really happy with the way that she is driving and felt safe.”

Jade’s Mother – Wallington

“Hi Gavin
We just like to thank you so much for your great teaching and support in getting Sophie to pass first time. She is just over the moon as you can imagine. Off she went last night for a drive on her own.
Many thanks again”

Mrs Tracey Paice – Carshalton
