Client Reviews – Manual Driving Lessons

I had previously failed my practical test 2 years ago with another instructor and had been put off trying again as it knocked my confidence. I left it late until this year and I decided to give it another shot as my theory was running out. My instructor Robert has been incredibly patient over the past few months. He was very kind and always calm even when I would make great mistakes. He would always let me figure out things for my self and stepped in to guide when he needed to. I felt comfortable with his calm and friendly attitude. He always gave good constructive feedback and he has restored back my confidence that I had lost two years before. I will continue to remember his methods and techniques that he taught me during our lessons. Very polite, very positive and a genuine pleasure to be around. I passed my practical today with Robert!! Thank you so much Robert !

My instructor Elliot was great! He was always very professional and his NLP technique worked marvells on my driving. Also, he has a new car, which made it so much easier to pass my test!

Daniela Bolivar - Leatherhead, Surrey (15th August 2017)

Having just passed my driving exam with only 3 minors, I would like to take this opportunity to thank and praise my fantastic driving instructor. I have had the fortune to be trained by John O. who I can confidently say made the whole process an overall success. I have enjoyed every lesson, particularly as I never felt an urge or a rush to complete things within a certain time period; the whole experience went at a pace which was comfortable and I really appreciate the preparation which John gave me. John made sure that all the serious content of the lessons was balanced with enough enjoyment making not a single lesson boring or uninteresting. For these reasons and many more, I would highly recommend John for all those who begin from scratch or are simply in need of a little more support on the road.

I would highly recommend Darren as a driving instructor. He is very good at what he does, the way he explains how to do things is easy to understand and his knowledge of driving is exceptional. Helped me pass first time! Thanks Darren!

Jonathan Star - City Of Westminster, London (7th August 2017)

I passed my licence in 2012 but never really felt confident and had an accident soon after which really made me fear driving. Just 2 lessons with Mary  and I felt like I had never known driving before. She highlighted my mistakes spot on and help me work on them very systematically. She was patient, gave me sufficient time, and didn’t rush me even though lesson was about to finish. Very professional yet very connected. I feel very much more confident and safe now. I am more than happy to recommend her to anyone.

sakshi Sharma - Hounslow, London (29th July 2017)

Driving instructor was fantastic, always encouraging and supportive throughout. Constantly pushing me to become a better and more safe driver. With his expert tuition and some hard work, I have now passed my test. I would thoroughly recommend Britania driving school and Max to anyone who wants to learn to drive.

Alfie Cunnington - Merton, London (26th July 2017)

Jon my instructor gave me the confidence I needed to pass my test after a previous instructor with a different company made me feel as if I would never get there. The lessons were always focused on covering as much as possible in the time we had and I always came away thinking I had learnt something and that it was money well spent. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to pass there test and learn to drive.

Kate Wilkins-Sunbury-on-Thames, Surrey (26th July 2017)

I had a great experience with Britannia. My instructor Max was fantastic, he was organised in the way he approached my learning and when things did not go the way i wanted in certain situations he was helpful / understanding which helped me pass !

Bhavneet Alg - Merton, London (27th July 2017)

Dear Britannia team, Im writing to you to give feedback re my refresher course with John O. I decided to take few driving lessons because of the recent trip abroad where I had to drive. Until that point I havent driven at all for 6 years. My first lesson was exhausting! I had to concentrate on so many things and wasnt aware of few rules that came in after I passed my test (e.g. I didnt know how to handle roundabouts and cyclists). After that lesson I decided that Ill do the trip but thats it, I wont be driving again. My 2nd lesson was much better, my body and mind remembered what to do and what to look out for. After that I kind of couldnt wait to get in the car and drive. ; ) John is an excellent teacher and a nice guy. I felt at ease to ask him any questions. But the most important thing is that he gave my confidence back to drive again. I am a driver! I just needed a bit of a push to get into it again. I can thoroughly recommend doing a refresher course. It doesnt matter if you havent driven in ages or are a nervous driver, this course WILL give you your confidence back. There is nothing to worry about on the road as John wont only teach you how to operate your car but also how to assess the situation in front of you and look ahead. This combination helped me during my recent trip. And John, youll be happy to hear that Im planning to sign up for zipcar so I can drive around London as well. ; ) Thank you for giving me my confidence back!

Rugenia Keil - Wimbledon, London (25th July 2017)

I had 2 hour lessons every week and by the time of my test I was prepared for what was ahead of me, my instructor was patient and explained things very clearly, lessons were fun and informative, he was always on time and never cut any lessons short by a few minutes.
I would highly recommend Britannia to anyone who wants to pass their driving test.

Perry Viner - Hampton, Richmond (19th July 2017)

Couldn’t recommend Britannia Driving School more!! My instructor Darren made sure that I understood exactly not only how to pass the test but to be an overall good and safe driver. After some bad experiences with other instructors Darren made sure I was engaged, observant & understood the reasoning of his instructions. Incredibly happy with my pass and would definitely recommend Darren to everyone! Thank you!!! 🙂

Jay Sharma - Fulham, London (13th July 2017)

John was an amazing instructor and extremely patient with me (2 years!). I’m so thankful that he taught me and would definitely recommend him to anyone else – as long as you support Chelsea though! Cheers John. Luke

Luke Giacomazzi - Merton, London (11th July 2017)

My driving instructor Darren, was very good. He kept me on my toes and made sure I understood exactly what I was doing. Would 100% recommend him to anyone. Always on time and was there from the beginning to the end of the practical test. What a man!
Thanks again Darren.

Ashley Arhin - Shepherds Bush, London (7th July 2017)

After starting and stopping driving lessons with other instructors several times over the years, I was very lucky to get John as my driving instructor at Britannia. He made sure I understood absolutely everything, was patient and easy to talk to and made sure I was completely ready for the practical test. I look forward to seeing him again for the pass plus!

Louise C - Wimbledon, Morden (5th July 2017)

I am happy to recommend Britania driving school thanks to my driving instructor Steve.
Steve has been great preparing me for the practical test which I passed first time. He was very patient thorough the lessons and encouraging me throughout the way and providing me important tip and advice for the big day. I would recommend Steve to any of my friends.

Nathalie Nave- Surbiton, London (25th June 2017)

Elliot did an excellent job teaching me the fundamentals of driving, as well as preparing me for my practical test. He was professional, patient, thorough, and always pushed me in a positive way. Regardless of your ability or level Elliot is the ideal driving instructor.

Michael Morgan - Wandsworth, London (25th June 2017)

Thanks for helping me pass first time! Johnnie my instructor was a great teacher, very patient and went though everything at the perfect pace to help me feel confident behind the wheel. I feel like my lessons have prepared me well, not just for the test but also for owning a car and driving independently in the future.

Charlotte Langston - Southwark, London (23rd June 2017)

I was trained by John O from Britannia and I passed my test from Sutton Test Centre first time with only three minors. John has been a patient and an amazing instructor. I would highly recommend him. Thank you. Devesh Karma from Sutton.

Devesh Vishwakarma- Sutton, Surrey (22nd June 2017)

I had a good experience with Britannia, my driving instructor Matthew was very nice and encouraging and I managed to pass my first attempt at the practical driving test. I couldn’t believe it! I’m now looking at taking some more lessons to deepen my knowledge and experience. Thanks 🙂

Lidewij Croes - Lambeth, London (19th June 2017)

I passed my test first time on Tuesday at Tolworth test centre, but could not have done it without Robert my instructor. I have been out by myself a few times now and I can say that i honestly couldn’t have been more prepared for that experience without the help of Robert. He is patient, encouraging and very entertaining during lessons. I would definitely recommend him!
