Lauren passed at Tolworth Test centre after taking my semi intensive course.

Darren is the best!!
Passed after a 2 week crash course with Darren first time! Having let years pass without any lessons Darren really helped to build my confidence and I learnt to actually enjoy driving! He is by far the best driving instructor I have ever had and when I booked too many lessons which he felt I didn't need he refunded me the money I had paid upfront. I would and have already recommend him to anyone and everyone. Thank you for being patient and having a sense of humour to get me on the road!

Georgina passed 1st time pass after taking my 35 hour Semi-Intensive course.

"Thank you Darren! Brilliant driving instructor with organised, simple lessons, perfecting each technique more and more each day.

The notes and drawings after each lesson really help to reflect on what you have learnt to remember for next time. Fantastic level of service! I had aimed to pass before Christmas and after 4 weeks of lessons I have passed my driving practical test first time Yayy!! I would recommend Drive Automatic School with Darren to any future learners!"

Madeline passed 1st time with only 2 minor faults after taking my 
40hrs Semi Intensive course.

I would recommend Darren’s automatic teaching. He is one of the best in Surrey. He is a first class teacher. I was very nervous but he was able to put me at ease and I got through my test successfully. He teaches one to one and explains the basics in a clear manner. He is very kind and patient and teaches in a friendly atmosphere. He makes you feel at ease when you feel nervous by making a joke. I would recommend you go to him before anyone else because you can trust him. Go to Darren before anyone else as you’ll have the best chance of passing.

Katy passed 1st time after taking my Semi Intensive course.

I passed my test 1st time today with Darren. I was extremely nervous when I first started my lessons but Darren coached me through the nerves and made me realise that passing my test was possible. He is a perfect instructor for nervous drivers. Without his friendly manner, constant encouragement and perfect driving tips I wouldn't have passed. Thanks for everything are highly recommended..

joanna passed 1st time!

I would like to say I was very impressed with your knowledge and enormous experience on every lesson we had, it gives me a lot confidence and shows how professional you are, it's not only on things you are praising a pupils but also you are very honest to tell and point out weak side of the person, well judgment and motivations I was offered by you are priceless, and must say it's hard to find someone trust worthy and committed as much as you were in the past few week. I'm very grateful for your help, I know without you I wouldn't success. Thank you.

Number 58 to pass 1st time!

It's those kind of numbers that let you know you're with a safe pair of hands. Learning with Darren has been the best experience from the 1st lesson through to passing 1st time today with flying colours. My wife also has passed 1st time with Darren yesterday!

Darren's method of reassuring for those with a nervous disposition and communication of his knowledge driving is second to none. I would recommend the Drive Automatic School to anyone. Thanks again Darren, it's been a pleasure.

Lauren Took MY SEMI Intensive course

As an older and very nervous driver, Darren really put me at ease, was incredibly patient with me and explained everything in a calm way. He really gave me the confidence I needed to finally take my test at the ripe old age of 30. I passed first time and I'm sure my husband will too, who is also taking the intensive course with Darren. I highly recommend him.

Lauren passed 1st time, only 5 minor faults. she's now looking forward toPass Plus

Darren is a really good instructor who at first assess my skills and knowledge on driving very well. He teaches in a systematic way , he is very friendly and it helps as you feel comfortable learning . It is also an extra bonus with his hilarious jokes that actually makes driving interesting and fun. He was very supportive and patient with me and the one thing that made the difference of me passing the first time with Darren is the fact that he always projects  a positive attitude .he encourages me and is confident in my driving skills, if i make mistakes he made sure I learn from it by trying harder and I think that passing the driving test really makes a difference if you have a great instructor who believes in you. Thanks

I passed first time today and was very confident. Thanks darren. You are a star x ,Strongly recommend Darren to anyone who wants to learn to drive automatic quickly and safely!

1st Time Pass. I have just passed my driving test first time with Darren in under 27 hours. He was a brilliant instructor and made one feel at ease in the car immediately. His schedule fit easily around my busy school timetable and I am immensely grateful to him for all his help and support throughout my learning. His great humour and positive attitude really made being behind the wheel a breeze. I now look forward to many happy driving experiences thanks to him!
