Client Reviews – Automatic Intensive Courses

Mary H, my instructor was extremely knowledgeable, very patient and was able to take me from complete novice to a pass first time in just over 6 days as part of the Intensive Driving course. Amazing value for money and actually great fun! I can’t thank Mary H enough for this experience.

Nigel Brown - Sutton, Surrey (23rd May 2018)

So pleased I went with Britannia. Now in my fifties, I hadn’t really wanted to drive before but changed circumstances at home meant I needed to learn quickly. From the start, the office staff were unfailingly helpful in sorting me out with an intensive course for an automatic that fitted in with other commitments.
My instructor, Mary, was brilliant – took me through the course over six days, giving great constructive feedback and making sure that any emerging faults were corrected. She’s also a really nice person, which helps a lot if you’re in a car for six hours a day!
Have to admit that doing so many hours each day was really tiring, so it may not be for everyone. But it certainly paid off for me. Started driving from scratch less than two weeks ago, and here I am with a full automatic licence – still can’t quite believe it! Thanks a million, Mary!

KEVIN KEVIN KEVIN. What a glorious man. He is the best instructor one can ever possibly want. His famous “reference points” make driving child’s play.

Aside from his supreme knowledge and command of the road he’s actually a great guy too and really wants those that drive with him to succeed and become great safe drivers!

I cannot hold him in higher regard. If you want to pass quickly and safely KEVIN is the way forward. Honestly a true gentleman.

I passed my driving test after an intensive course in croydon. Mary H is the best instructor in south London, very tactical,firm and nice.

Mike D E - Croydon, Surrey(7th April 2018)

Well, where can I start ? I have just passed today , I honestly don’t think I would of without the help of the most amazing driving instructor ! Patience of a GOD, I have to admit I was a handful and honestly if a nervous driver like me can learn how to drive by Kevin’s lessons ANYBODY can ! I’m so confident on the road now and I’ve come a long this man really helped me and I’ll be forever greatful

Kamisha Gayle - Richmond upon Thames (23rd March 2018)

Kevin was fantastic. He knows exactly what it takes to pass the test which maximised the use of time spent during lessons. He is very personable which I liked and is a must given the amount of time you spend together!

Andrew Mariani -Richmond upon Thames (14th March 2018)

My instructor Mary was lovely and brilliant. She made me so confident, after failing my test twice with my previous instructor I was so discouraged, a friend recommended Britannia so I decided to give driving a try again. Mary did teach me all I needed to pass my test and this time I passed with 3 minors which was brilliant. Thanks Mary.

Tracy W - Raynes Park,London (21st December 2017)

Mary is the most fantastic teacher. She is patient, reliable and incredibly supportive. I have had numerous driving teachers but she is the best by miles. I cannot fault her teaching and guidance.

Britannia is an excellent driving school. Every call and transaction has been handled quickly and immediately. All of the staff have been fantastic and flexible to accomodate my needs. The BEST driving school in London!

Jessica Luddington - Wimbledon, London (7th October 2017)

I first started learning to drive in a manual 5 years ago. After many lessons, I felt demotivated by my confidence levels still being low despite having learnt so much. This led to me giving up due to nerves. After a second try at manual 2 years later, I knew it wasn’t right for me. This Summer, however, I made the decision to try learning in an automatic car via an intensive course and it was the best decision I made. The staff at Britannia supported me through every process necessary and were on hand to answer any questions – I can’t fault their service. My instructor, Kevin, was fantastic at gauging what I needed to do to improve in every lesson and his conscientious teaching led to me passing first time. I am very proud of this achievement and hugely grateful to the team at Britannia for all of their support.

Hannah Redman - Ashford, Surrey (22nd August 2017)

My instructor Kelly was very helpful and patient with me at all times. Her encouragement towards my test date was excellent. Thank you Kelly

Sally Owusua- Croydon, Surrey (5th July 2017)

Couldn’t recommend Britannnia or my instructor, Kevin, highly enough! He got me through what I thought was an impossible task in just 3 weeks! I did an intensive course for 6 days and then a few extra lessons that we fit in before my test! It was intense but Kevin is an amazing teacher that built my confidence and kept me relaxed all through my lessons! I started a trembling mess and ended passing first time with only 1 minor.

Rosie Nix - Hampton, Richmond (5th June 2017)

Terence Chambers - Mitcham, Surrey (19th April 2017)

Great driving school with a great instructor in Neil. Just passed my test first time after a weeks intense course, Neil was fantastic making it fun and enjoyable. Definitely recommend

Sian Meredith - Richmond- Surrey (29th November 2016)

I started a two week intensive course with no experience whatsoever, It was my very first time driving a car and I didn’t have any confidence at all but within two weeks my instructor Neil made sure I passed with flying colours! I passed with only two minors for hesitation. I highly recommend the intensive course and my instructor Neil was a fantastic teacher (a friendly, funny and very chatty northern bloke) a pleasure to be around everyday. I couldn’t thank him enough.

NEIL YOU’RE THE BEST! THANK YOU… 🙂

Charlene Irvine - Twickenham, Middlesex (4th October 2016)

I have recently passed my driving test at the first attempt. I booked for a one week intense course but unfortunately due to an emergency in family I was unable to have a lesson everyday within the time slots. My driving instructor, Phil was marvellous and did everything possible to ensure he could fit in around my availability. He was calm and I never felt like he was telling me what to do. This is something I struggle with. He made driving fun whilst getting me to the standard I needed to be for the test.
I would recommend Britannia driving school to anyone looking to learn and Phil is a credit to the school with his teaching ability.

Phil Davidson - Coulsdon, Surrey (20th July 2016)

Unbelievable my experience with Britannia driving school, from being a novice unconfident learner with a seventeen year gap, I came to Britannia to achieve my goal of gaining an automatic driving licence within one month. I had a brilliant driving instructor called Phil and from the start we hit the ground running, driving around South London confronting different road scenarios and learning manoeuvres. Within one week under Britannia’s intensive 39 hour course I passed first time under Phil’s tuition.

Martin L - Sutton, Surrey (29th June 2016)

I’ve just passed my test 1st time in Morden with only 2 minors thanks to the expert tuition of Phil!
Being 40yrs old and having a severe lack of confidence on not passing my driving test earlier in my life, I was immediately put at ease by Phil’s calm and patient teachings. His pointers on executing manoeuvres really helped, made driving very easy, and his knowledge of the local area and road lay outs were second to none.
Phil was always punctual, his car was very comfortable to drive, and I will definitely recommend him and Britannia driving school to friends and colleagues in the very near future.
Thanks again Phil, you’re the man!!

Clint Manuel - Wandsworth, London (24th May 2016)

I had phil as an instructor and i couldnt fault him enough. I had a bad instructor previously and phil totally boosted my confidence and made me believe in myself. He gave me easy techniques in my manoevers. I passed with just 2 minors!!

Leanne Goree- Cobham,Surrey (13th April 2016)

I had Phil as an instructor. I passed first time due to him teaching me easy skills to perform manoeuvres. He was always on time and I got my full driving hours. He is a very nice guy and I recommend choosing him!

Frazer Bass- Tadworth,Surrey (6th April 2016)

Having left it until my thirties to learn to drive, I was sceptical that I would be able to learn to drive in a week and pass my test, but I am happy that I managed both! My instructor, Phil, was encouraging throughout my week-long intensive course. He was very patient and adapted his teaching to my style of learning. I was a bit anxious on the first day but the pace of the course allowed me to gain confidence and enjoy driving. Thanks Phil!
