Automatic Driving Lessons
Meera, Oct 2017
I’ve been attempting to learn to drive on and off for the past 20 years and each time I simply gave up. I was unteachable. I had a lot of confidence issues and the longer I left it, the harder it became. As the years have rolled on, the more my children and I have missed out, as not driving in MK can be very socially isolating. Steve started teaching me earlier this year and his encouraging style, patience and pragmatic approach gave me the confidence to keep going. No one lesson was the same. He varies the pace and places we go to; challenges you without making you feel incapable and allows you to get over the fear and enjoy the driving experience. Steve also provide excellent value as he picks you up at least 10 mins before the lesson and often drops off after your time is up. On Tuesday 24 Oct, I passed my test on my first attempt. This is all down to Steve and I can’t thank him enough for what he has done. He has worked miracles. I can truly recommend Steve if you want someone to teach to drive properly and with confidence during and after the test. Thank you Steve

I first started learning how to drive with another big company in Milton Keynes, however they were not helping me and even expected me to know what I want to learn every session. How would I know?! Steve picked me up when I was feeling down and gave me hope, hope that learning how to drive is easy and fun and I was always looking forward to my lessons. Steve is a dedicated tutor, patient, funny and interested in his students. He is tailoring the lessons for each and every one of us as everyone has different styles of learning. I couldn’t recommend Steve enough! [Editor: Raluca's comment "even expected me to know what I wanted to learn" is one technique from Coaching. It's part of the DVSA's new push into Client Centred Learning. However many instructors don't really understand Coaching as training courses for instructors in Coaching are grossly inadequate. However, I am one of a few in the UK that have a post graduate certficate in Coaching for Driver Development and use this technique effectively. See my page: Coaching - What does it mean? ]

First of all I want to give a hugeee thanks to my driving instructor Steve, not only did he show me how to be a safe driver, he also helped me to combat my fear in driving, he believed in me even when I didn't believe in myself, I would definitely recommend Steve to anyone wanting to learn an automatic.

My success in the test was all thanks to Steve. Definitely one of the best instructors, very professional, patient and very clever to point out any errors. A very enjoyable experience and overall the best. Thanks so much Steve for being my driving instructor.

First I would like to say a big thanks to Steve for helping me to pass the test. Steve is an outstanding instructor with lots of patience and very professional. He always arrived on time, actually a little earlier that tells his dedication. Each and every class is different and more challenging and the way he explains things builds more confidence to be a safe driver. I highly recommend him to anyone who is going to start their driving lessons.

I want to say a huge thank you to Steve for having so much faith in me. He has helped me so much with my confidence by always challenging me and showing me that I really can do it. Steve didn't just teach me to pass a test but helped me to learn how to be a safe and good driver when I get out on the road on my own. He is friendly, patient, always on time and accommodating to my schedule. He put so much effort into understanding me and what type of person I am to really be able to help me become a better driver. I would definitely recommend Steve to anyone, he is the best instructor and I am very grateful for everything he has done for me!

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Steve for getting me passed first time! I had little confidence and he was very patient with me and gave me a lot of his time! I would 100% recommend him to anyone who is starting to drive! He helped me gain my confidence within a matter of weeks. He is honestly the best instructor and I couldn't be more thankful for all his time and effort!

Huge thanks to Steve for his help and patience. I have finally passed my driving test - something I was beginning to think wasn't for me at all. Its taken a long time and a few hiccups along the way. Steve has always been professional, calm, friendly, punctual and the lessons are great value for money. I have gained confidence and learned a lot not just for the test, but for the life too. I would highly recommend this great instructor!!! I believe that if I can drive, anyone can! Good luck to all!

Steve is by far the best Instructor I have had. I had a couple previously and not only does he teach well, he understood my nerves and anxiety and made me overcome that. In my experience no other instructor has done that and for me that's exactly what I needed in order for me to pass. He helped me with the difficulties and I generally felt comfortable and had a laugh in every lesson! Highly recommend Steve!!!

Steve teaches you to drive safely and sensibly for life as opposed to simply passing your test. He corrected a lot of bad habits and misconceptions I had built up from previous instructors. He pushed the boundaries of my comfort zone, but this was to my benefit. He also gives you the full time, sends a reminder of the lesson the day before. I never felt rushed in any lesson and he never gave the impression he had to 'race off to be somewhere else', he also understands he is there to teach you, which may mean telling you things you don't want to hear. Having had two instructors previously, I was really grateful for Steve's help in helping me to pass my test.

Steve is a brilliant driving instructor, who is knowledgeable about the road and patient. Every lesson was different and exciting which was also filled with challenges to better my skills. I would highly recommend Steve to anyone 10/10. Lastly Thank you Steve for all your hard work. I will sadly miss our weekly lessons.

Firstly, I would like to thank Steve for helping me to pass the test first time!!! I wish I would have seen his website for the very first time when I started to look for a driving instructor instead of calling another driving school as that instructor was terrible. I had to quit my lesson with that instructor and looked for another instructor before the date of my driving test (which was 2 weeks from the date I cancelled my lesson with the other school). When I found Steve on his website and read all the testimonials, I knew that he is a good teacher. But I was not sure whether he could help me given the short period. When I received the text from him that he could help me, I was so happy!! If you are looking for an instructor, he is the one. Highly recommended! He is not only a great teacher but he is also a very professional driving instructor. He always arrived early before the lesson, used drawings to help me to better understand the scenario. Thank you, Steve.

Many, many, many thanks to Steve for helping me to pass my test on my first attempt with only 4 minors! Steve is a wonderful driving instructor; he is friendly & patient, he takes the time to really explain what you should be doing to be a good driver - sometimes using visual aids which was great for me as I am a very visual learner. I really enjoyed my driving lessons with Steve and would highly recommend him to anyone! Thanks again for everything Steve!

I loved learning to drive with Steve as he taught me in ways I could pickup and understand easily😊. He always made me feel comfortable and confident and been very patient while explaining where and why I have been making mistakes (sometimes over and over) and thus made learning to drive so easy.😊 I always felt motivated after my lessons to improve on my driving. A massive thanks to Steve for his encouragement, guidance, support and patience throughout, without which I couldn't have been able to pass my test for the first time. 😊 I feel satisfied that I can really drive safely. I would strongly recommend Steve to anyone looking for real lessons for real value.

Steve is an exceptional driving instructor and I would recommend him to anyone. He is always friendly, approachable and professional and forever positive and encouraging, so I always felt comfortable with him and looked forward to each lesson. He is a very dedicated and understanding instructor, who tailors his lesson around the student’s needs, making sure you get the most out of each lesson. Steve provides fantastic instruction and I can honestly say he has made me a much more capable and confident driver! You won't find anyone better!!!

I'm so glad I found Steve after wasting time and money with another instructor. Steve is calm, patient and helped improve my driving in a short period of time. He is a great instructor and I would highly recommend him to any one. Thank you so much Steve 😊

Steve's way of teaching is like no other; lessons are always catered to your needs, which is what I really liked. He always arrived early but still only charged for 1 hour. Every time I made a mistake, he would ask me to pull up in a safe and convenient place, explain what mistake I made and why it happened. The thing with Steve is, it is not only about teaching you how to drive, it is also about making you confident on the road. If it was not for Steve, I would not have passed my test with ZERO FAULTS! Think of it like school, you get good teachers, bad teachers, and average teachers. Steve is better than good, he is great, the best in fact! I highly recommend him, especially if you lack confidence on the road and want to feel comfortable in the learning environment.

Thanks Steve, all the credit goes to you. Steve is a fantastic tutor. Steve understands learners inhibitions, difficulties and addresses them in detail. He organises classes in a structured way and every class is a great learning experience for me. He never loses his cool especially when the learner repeatedly does the same mistake. I would definitely recommend Steve if you want to become a confident and safe driver.

Steve is a great driving instructor. He lets you set the pace for your lessons and learning. He breaks things down into logical steps and takes the time to help you walk through your barriers. I cannot recommend Steve enough, he helped me as a nervous learner to pass first time!
Emma, January 2015
Steve is a natural tutor. I was a nervous driver and never believed i would confidently drive on the road let alone PASS MY TEST FIRST TIME!!. He addressed all my concerns and provided ways of dealing with them. He has been patient throughout the learning process and has given me many tips that will help me now as a driver. Steve encourages self learning and i have particularly enjoyed that his lessons require feedback on areas that you feel you wish to improve. If you want to overcome your your fears and become a confident and safe driver I would recommend Steve!!

After wasting endless amount of money, time and effort with another instructor I went with Steve when a friend of mine recommended him and passed the very first time. Steve is the BEST instructor anyone could ever find. Steve is very passionate about teaching learners to drive; it is not just a job for him. He is not interested in just getting his students pass the test but he strives to make them better drivers in the real world. I can definitely recommend Steve without hesitation.
