Testimonials from real pupils

Thank you to Paul! Great instructor very friendly! Passed my first time, definitely would recommend Paul to everyone!

Beka Beeney

Paul is a really good teacher who helped me to pass both my theory and practical tests. During every lesson he made sure I had a good understanding of everything I was being taught, and was happy to spend as much time as I needed on each manoeuvre. He was also able to answer all my questions and was happy to explain things as many times as I needed. He talked me through the test beforehand and made sure I knew what to expect on test day, which I found really reassured me as I was very nervous. I couldn’t be more grateful to him for helping me to pass.

Lindsay Draper

Although I passed my theory and practical 1st time I can’t take all the credit. As they say your only as good as your teacher so credit goes to Paul for getting me through a nightmare test day. He’s a calm knowledgeable teacher and came recommended to me via family and friends and I would recommend time and time again. So if your looking for a driving instructor, look no further you’ve found the best Basingstoke thanks Paul.

Paul really earnt his money teaching me how to drive, but we got there in the end and I could not have done it without him, looking back at my first lesson I cannot believe how i got up to the level to pass but I did and he was a great teacher.

Kara Dolby

I would never have been able to have passed the test first time, without Paul’s calm and patient attitude in teaching me to drive. A true perfectionist who cares about and encourages his pupils to get the best out of themselves in their driving. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Tony Kimber

I passed my test on 29 Sep 2017. This has been only possible due to the time, effort and patience from Paul. It took long for me to pass as I am not the most natural drivers. But Paul persisted with me and I managed to pass my test. It would not have been possible if Paul was not calm during his lessons and answered even the most stupid questions I had. I would definitely recommend Paul to anyone looking for Automatic Driving Lessons.

What a great driving instructor. Paul is friendly and knowledgeable and quickly puts you at ease. I had a break from learning of about 10 years and Paul quickly got me confident back behind the wheel, resulting in me passing my test on the first attempt. Highly recommended.

David Ebenezer

Paul is a great instructor. He talks to you about what YOU want and what you NEED! Paul has a great ability to analyse strengths and weaknesses and during our lessons we really worked on both until I was ready to pass my test, and I did! Thank you Paul for all your hard work.

Another Pupil Passes the Driving Test
Karema Whitworth

I had several years’ experience driving an automatic in the US, followed by a break of several years not driving at all in the UK. I started my first lesson extremely nervous about driving on the ‘wrong’ side of the car and the ‘wrong’ side of the road, but Paul quickly helped me find my confidence. We both soon realised that he didn’t need to teach me how to drive, but he needed to teach me how to pass the test. Thanks to Paul’s helpful tips and feedback, I passed first time with only two minor faults and wondered why it took me so long to get driving again. Thanks Paul!

Tracey Head

Paul is a excellent driving instructor with a lot of patience and understanding. He gives you advice and feedback on your progress.  I feel more confident with my driving thanks to him.
I would be pleased to recommend him to anyone

Tina Taylor

I was a bit late in life arriving to driving – I had about 10 lessons with Paul & passed first time with only 2 minor faults….Paul is a very relaxed instructor that gives you confidence & gives you the room to learn & apply….highly recommend.
