Would 100% recommend Alan to anyone looking for driving lessons! Put me at ease and was very patient with me as i was very nervous to begin with.
From Parsons cross. passed in July 2019
100% would recommend Alan as a driving instructor. His forward teaching style worked perfectly for me. Very patient but also always knew when to push me out of my comfort zone so that i was always learning. Thanks for everything Alan.
I recieved a lovely card and tasty beer, from a very grateful Georgia.
Highly recommend Alan to anyone, he did an amazing job, hes so patient and just a genuine guy. Thanks for everything you've done and getting me through my test first time.
110% would recommend Alan, great driving instructor! Calms you down and always reassuring you.Would definatly recommend you to anyone looking to start driving lessons.
My Favourite kind of Thankyou!
Alan made me feel at ease right from the start. I was a nervous learner with little confidence but over the weeks that changed and my confidence grew. Alan went at my pace and i never felt under pressure to go out of my comfort zone, we did this lesson by lesson until i was confident to move to another level. I would highly recommend Alan to anyone. Thank you Alan.
Made me feel far more confident and relaxed on my driving lessons than I had been before, passed in august and couldn't recommend him enough!!
First of all i would like to thank Alan for getting me through my practical driving test. Very calm and patient. Always gives you great feedback so you know what you need to improve on. After passing my test i wanted to go and do some motorway driving, i am so glad i did as it took all the nerves away, getting on and doing it was the best thing! I would highly recommend Alan to anyone.
Alan is an excellent driving instructor who creates a relaxed and friendly atmosphere during driving lessons. From the first lesson, he really knew how to put me at ease and enabled me to get the very best out of my learner driver experience. his professional attitude and subject knowledge along with his enthusiasm, encouragement and support for his students is outstanding. I would strongly recommend Alan to anyone who is looking for a driving instructor.
I went to Alan after I had been with another instructor who had unfortunately let me down. Alan was great made me feel comfortable, and was really confident with his teaching. I passed my test first time with Alan but more importantly he made me feel like a confident driver and felt comfortable with all the manoeuvres.
Alan got me passed 1st time when I'm not the greatest learner. Nothing but a great teacher and really had me less anxious from the 1st lesson. Made learning to drive a great experience and would recommend to anyone. Really patient and easy to be taught by. Couldn't be any happier with the experience and extra knowledge I needed to be a good, confident driver. Thank you
I would recommend Alan to anyone wanting to learn to drive. When i first started with Alan i was totally inexperienced having never even sat in the driving seat of a car. He was very patient with me and gave me the confidence and motivation to pass. He also helped me a lot with my theory test practice and provided free online help. After i passed my test i also completed the pass plus course with Alan, where i had an input on what areas i wanted to focus on, which gave me even more confidence as a new driver.
Are you now a car owner?
Yes, a ford fiesta.
How did you feel on your first lesson?
I was bricking it before and was shocked at how tired my legs felt after.
What was the hardest part to begin with?
Steering the car in the right direction, its not like mario kart!
Turn in the road. Never really had any issue with that one!
How did you feel on the morning of your test?
Nervous but excited, i was fairly confident until i managed to stall the car coming out of the test centre!
How do your friends and family rate your driving?
Well, they get in the car while i'm driving so i'm guessing they feel at least safe!
And what about your views on the driving ability of your friends and family?
Impressed by some, less than impressed by others!
Whats the longest journey you've done on your own so far?
I work over near crystal peaks, so probably that, from home thats about 15 miles on some very busy roads.
What do you enjoy most about driving?
The freedom of going where i want, when i want.
What advice would you give to others just starting out?
Relax, its not mario kart, and listen to Alan. He'll help you through any issues
*Blushes* - And finally, what is the difference between a pelican and toucan crossing?
Thanks, that's put me on the spot!! A toucan crossing is for cyclists and pedestrians.
