I would like to thank Graham for helping me pass my driving test with zero faults. I always had very entertaining and enjoyable lessons and it helped me overcome my fear of driving and now I love driving. I would definitely recommend going with Graham to anyone!

I would like to thank Graham for the useful yet entertaining lessons which helped me pass my test in such a short time. His unique teaching method has definitely allowed me to prepare for me to embark on a whole new journey to driving and more. Many thanks to Graham for the driving lessons and I would definitely recommend him to other pupils! My brother is starting driving lessons with him when he turns 17 in September!

I want to thank Graham for giving me so much confidence in the driver’s seat, with such enjoyable yet meticulous lessons, I owe every bit of my 1st time pass with only one minor fault to his teaching. After being relatively nervous to start driving, I could not have picked a better instructor as from the first lesson Graham is calm and light hearted, making my overall experience learning with him all the better. Thank you again Graham!

I managed to pass first time thanks to Graham’s thorough yet enjoyable lessons, the 2 hour lessons really helped me gain my confidence at first especially as Graham is so calm in the car. Also I felt I learned something new every lesson and by the time it was my test I felt confident I could pass. Communication was very easy and helped to ensure that lessons were always on time. I was told about Graham by a friend and would definitely recommend Graham as a driving instructor.

I would highly recommend Graham. Passing first time was only possible thanks to the expertise of Graham. I will definitely tell others of his driving school!

Elliott

Many thanks must go to Graham who got me to pass first time. Graham’s lessons are enjoyable and informative, the 2 hour lessons are much better than 1 hour lessons in my opinion as you get far more from them and it prepares you for driving after test. I would definitely recommend Graham to any one looking to learn or currently learning and is struggling, he is very relaxing and encouraging so I felt extremely relaxed in all my lessons even my first one. Thank you Graham

Ollie

Before Graham, I was with another instructor. However Graham is by far a better instructor, he monitors how you are doing. His two hour lessons are more beneficial than an hour, you can learn a lot more in less time. Definitely worth it. I passed 1st time in 5 months of lessons.

Lewis
Lewis

I passed my test with Graham as my instructor and was really pleased with every lesson I received. His effective way of tracking progress meant that each lesson focused on what I needed to personally improve on and learn instead of a general structure. Being initially very anxious to start driving Graham made me feel comfortable from the first lesson with his supportive encouragement. I am very grateful to Graham for his patience and positive attitude, both of which were imperative to me now being confident and comfortable in my driving. I have already recommended Graham to a friend and would gladly do so to anyone else looking for an excellent instructor.

Rebecca

My friend recommended Graham to me, and I definitely made the right choice learning with him. As quite a nervous driver, Graham made me feel very relaxed behind the wheel and helped to build my confidence. Now I have passed my test, I will be sure to recommend him to anyone wanting lessons. Thank you Graham!

Jasmine

Graham was the perfect choice as a driving instructor.  In my first lesson he said to me ‘you are only to stress if I stress, and I never stress!’ True to his word every lesson was relaxed and interesting which allowed me to progress without feeling nervous on the road. He is very prompt, arriving on time every week and each lesson brought something new. Thanks to Graham I now feel able to drive safely and calmly and cannot recommend him enough to anyone wanting to learn to drive. Thank you so much!

Emma

I have no regrets in choosing Graham as my driving instructor. His patient and humorous nature allows you to be more relaxed when at the wheel of the car. And thanks to that I am feel 10 times more confident than I thought I will ever be. I will always remember Graham and all he has done for me and will urge anyone who is need of lessons, or even an extra boost to get across the finish line, Graham is your man. Again, thank you so much!!

Adam

Graham is a very reliable and talented driving instructor that made me feel very calm in the car. He was always reliable about lessons and very easy to communicate with about timings, he made it very easy for me to learn and pick up new things but always offering me a chance in the lesson to go over things I wanted to which was really helpful. I would highly recommend graham as a driving instructor.

Charlie

Graham is a kind, calm and reliable driving instructor, he has never been late for a lesson and set aside regular driving slots for me to keep up consistent practice. He has a great system to record your progress and abilities to date, which allows you to start where you left off each lesson. With Graham I was always learning new things and refining my skills instead of wasting time practicing things I was already confident with which was perfect! Graham was recommended to me by my brother and i’ve already recommended two of my friends to him and definitely would to anyone else.

Romy

Changing driving instructors to Graham was the best thing I did whilst learning to drive. His calm, friendly and humorous persona really made me enjoy the lessons and helped me gain my confidence. He was always prompt, encouraging and I always knew Graham would be honest about my driving. I’d thoroughly recommend Graham to anyone. Thank you so much Graham!

Ben

Graham was a phenomenal driving instructor, he was patient, kind and always Calm. I always felt extremely comfortable and all my lessons were enjoyable. I started my driving lessons with Graham after a 5  year break, The previous driving instructor I had had at 17 really knocked my confidence and I honestly never thought I would ever drive. After a few lessons with Graham I already felt that passing my test was possible and now I’ve passed I feel like I can drive safely and confidently! I can’t praise Graham Highly  enough I would recommend him to anyone! Thank you again Graham

What an incredibly professional, diligent and skilled instructor Graham is. He got my son through his test first time with an air of calmness and genuine caring it is hard to find these days.

We were initially looking for lessons in an automatic vehicle which we struggled to find, and Graham offered to help by instructing in our own car.

He was a gentleman from the start, and I cannot endorse Graham and Get Ready to Drive highly enough. I would give anyone his details safe in the knowledge that they are in the best hands possible.

If you want to learn to drive – look no further.

Thank you once again Graham, you are a star….. John Lyman

A huge thank you to Graham who helped me go from having no idea how to drive a car to passing first time with only 3 minors in just over 4 months! His calm and relaxed attitude to teaching put me at ease and even when I did something wrong he would never make me feel bad about it and instead showed me where I went wrong and go over it again until I got it right and was confident…

I would highly recommend Graham to anyone who is looking for an instructor as he was on time for every lesson, made sure you got the slots you wanted,  made every lesson enjoyable and really cares about every student and wants them to succeed. Also if you like mints, there is a constant supply in the car! Thanks again Graham!

Sophie

I would definitely recommend Graham as an instructor as his teaching methods are clear and calming! He helped me overcome my nervousness by introducing new concepts at a pace that stretched me but wasn’t stressful. I went into my test feeling totally prepared and passed first time!

Graham is a very patient instructor. If you find you are struggling with anything he will help you get through it. If you want to focus on anything in particular he will keep going through it with you until you get it. I have enjoyed my lessons as he is very relaxed and calm which makes you relax a bit more and he does not give up on you.

A big thank you to Graham for getting me through my driving test. After moving from another driving instructor Graham’s calm attitude and endless supply of peppermints will help you feel safe and comfortable behind the wheel, couldn’t have asked for a better instructor , highly recommend him to get you ready to drive.

“Graham has been my third and by far favorite instructor who deserves my deepest gratitute for helping me finally pass my driving test.
He is very encouraging, calming and has a good sense of humour but still knows when to be strict. He helped me feel confident and relaxed while I’m driving instead of me being extremely nervous and uncertain which I was before I started taking lessons with him. I really appreciate his reliability and honesty and would definitely recommend him.”

A big thank you to graham. A very patient instructor who sticks with you. Always arrived on time and put as much into lessons as possible. Makes you feel comfortable in the car and goes through everything you need to drive and feel safe in a car. I passed 2nd time and graham is a very considerate instructor with good communication and who lets you work at your own pace which definitely gives you confidence. If you’re doing something wrong he’ll tell you which is what I wanted in an instructor. I would definitely recommend graham to new drivers as he is reliable and will always try and make time for you.

“I came to Graham last week having already been a competent driver, however having failed twice already I needed some proper tuition to guide me through to a pass.  Having passed with only two lessons from Graham, is just tribute to his teaching ! “

Euan

I came to Graham after already having lessons as a nervous wreck who was too scared to go above 20 miles an hour. He was incredibly kind and patient with me and restored my confidence completely! He’s the nicest guy and really values his pupils – he’s very professional and dedicated to giving the service you pay for, is always early, and maintains his car to the highest standard (often cleaning it between lessons – wow! what a work ethic !). He’s always managed to fit me in despite having so many pupils, even after I took a gap of a few months. Graham is a great conversationalist who’ll make anyone feel comfortable and adapts his teaching to his pupil’s needs. I wish I’d had teachers like him in school, because I’d have aced every subject.

I would like to say thank you to Graham for helping me pass my practical test for the first time. I had another driving instructor before Graham but I didn’t feel like I was making progress. My Friend highly recommended Graham. Which I am thankful for because I have made a lot of progress with him.

Graham is kind, friendly, humorous, patient, trust-worthy, supportive and understanding. I would gladly recommend Graham without a doubt as he has great experience and knowledge.

I am now confident in completing manoeuvres , going on roundabouts and many more. I will be booking up an advance lesson with Graham regarding motorways to boost my confidence even more.

I was recommended Graham by a friend.  After driving with a previous instructor and not feeling confident, he completely rebuilt this again. Graham’s patience and positive attitude enabled me to feel calm whilst driving, this environment inevitably led to me recently passing my test. Graham is also very reliable with lessons and every lesson was enjoyable.  I would highly recommend him to anybody who wants to learn! Thanks very much Graham.

I started driving lessons with Graham after being dropped suddenly by my previous instructor. I was a nervous driver who wasn’t anywhere near ready to pass until I met Graham. He built my confidence and his calmness ensured I felt safe at all times. I learnt everything I needed in a well constructed and positive environment meaning after my second attempt I was able to pass with only three minors, something I thought I would never be able to do!

Bethan

I started driving with Graham only a month before my test after having to leave my previous instructor. He completely rebuilt my confidence in my driving by his positive attitude and manner in which he taught. He will always correct you on your mistakes but then in a constructive and supportive way which would give you the confidence to try again. This amazing instruction led me to pass my test, first time, with no driving faults!! I am so grateful to Graham for all his help and would recommend him to anyone who wants an encouraging and positive driving experience.

Joe

Graham is a very calm and easy to work with instructor. He took it slowly on the first few lessons and made everything seem so simple to me so I can understand. When I first started driving, I thought I would never speak because I was very shy and quiet. Graham was very kind and patient with me, made sure I was comfortable and always offered peppermints (even though my usual answer was a very quiet ‘No thank you’). If you have any insecurities about driving, they will all go away within the first lesson with Graham. I was very very nervous during driving tests, on my third attempt I thought I would fail and have to keep trying but Graham kept encouraging me. I wouldn’t have passed with one minor if it wasn’t for him! Thank you so much!

Jacqueline

Graham has been a great teacher and gave me the support and guidance to be able to pass my test. From my very first lesson to my last they were really enjoyable, and full of laughter. Graham helped me feel at ease and confident in my driving and I’ll miss his quality jokes and also his peppermints!! Ha ha. I would highly recommend Graham to anybody wanting to learn to drive.

Thank you very much Graham

“Thank you for getting Xanthe and Oz through their Practical Tests at the first attempt – a fantastic achievement! They never felt nervous before a lesson with you, but seemed quite exhausted when it had finished. I have the impression that your teaching method has just the right balance: relaxed and friendly while still being disciplined and informative.”

I passed my Practical test on the first attempt with only one minor. This was mainly thanks to Graham who taught so well. We had good laughs on our lessons but the lesson structure was very good indeed. I would recommend Graham to anyone who wants to learn how to drive.

Having Graham by my side made the whole journey of understanding how to drive, a lot simpler. He was an amazing instructor, he would always crack up jokes, push you to your limits and when, sometimes, things go sideways, he’d always be there, he made me a confident driver, I definitely recommend him”- Tushar

Phil
  • “Graham was a very good driving instructor who I got on with very well.
