Client Reviews – Manual Driving Lessons

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.

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!

John is a brilliant instructor who is very friendly but strict when need be.

Nam Dao - Morden, Surrey (17th June 2017)

I’ve never started a car prior to my course and I didn’t think it will go this smooth. Less than 4 months of weekend driving and I passed my test at the first attempt. I found this school to be very reliable and my instructor was truly great. Passing on his practical knowledge with patience but expecting improvements all the time. I don’t consider myself a driver, but I learned just enough to pass with much less hassle than I expected. All I can say is Thank you, I will keep on learning.

If it wasn’t for Elliot I’m sure I wouldn’t have my licence yet. He definitely knows how to get you ready for your test, how to help you learn efficiently. He embodies qualities of a real teacher, determined to get you on the road. I felt pressured not to repeat my mistakes and to make progress, and I knew I will thank him later. I think he reads people well, how they respond, what they need. And a true gentleman too. It’s important to start learning with/from the right person; I got lucky.

Thank you!


Laszlo Kalotai - Wimbledon, London (8th June 2017)

My driving instructor was George. I did not think for a second for changing driving school once I had my first lesson. He made learning how to drive fun and comfortable and therefore I am a confident driver now.

Simone Morris - Cheam, Surrey (26th May 2017)

I passed my test the first time! Amazing. This is all due to my instructor Darren. He helped me see that yes, I can do this, I am not a fraud on the road.
Darren gave me the confidence to keep going and it payed off. Thank you Darren!

Margreet Kikstra - Chiswick, London (25th May 2017)

I passed my test second time with no faults! I have to thank James for believing in me when I did not. James was encouraging throughout, very patient, reliable and always on time. I found learning to drive very daunting but a good instructor makes all the difference. I would not hesitate in recommending Britannia and in particular James to anyone.

Sarah U - Wimbledon, London (25th May 2017)

I passed my driving test yesterday, which is all thanks to my brilliant instructor James. He was so patient and calm through the whole learning process. He managed to explain everything in a very clear way so that I could understand, and he was always kind and friendly as well. Before meeting James, I really struggled with driving, especially after having bad experiences with previous instructors, and thought I’d never be able to drive. James showed me that I could drive and helped me every step of the way. I’m so grateful to James & the Britannia team– thanks so much!

Ayoush Lazikani - Merton, London (24th May 2017)

My driving instructor, Elliot, and his NLP approach were the two keys to successfully pass my test without any difficulties!

Felix Letellier -Wandworth, London (22nd May 2017)

I have just passed my test with Britannia they were very helpful and helped me find my test and fit my lessons around other commitments my instructor Pete was absolutely fantastic very patient and encouraging. I did the intensive course and Pete taught me excellent ways to help me complete the manoeuvres.. I couldn’t have done it without him thankyou Pete

Maggie Bone - Walton- On- Thames, Surrey (21st May 2017)

I had johnny as my instructor and honestly thought he was one of the best instructors I’ve had. I was with a couple of companies before Britannia but johnny shone britannia in a good light. His teaching methods were good and suited to me so learned quick and passed my test, from our first lesson 2 1/2 months later passing.
So in my opinion johnny is the instructor to go to.

Kieran Stansbury - Southwark, London (18th May 2017)

Passed my test first time with 6 minors thanks to John. His experience helped me get through comfortably. Definitely recommend, especially as he is a Chelsea supporter!

Jake Adeshile - Morden , Surrey (12th May 2017)

My first instructor  didn’t talk too much on the lessons and just let me drive. He said with my driving, I should be able to pass easily, and then I failed twice. When I was about to have a third test with him, he disappeared, no phone pickup, no reply.
I quickly contacted Britannia and they organized another instructor, Elliot, for me.
Since I’ve got the third test day booked, I only had 5 hours’ lessons with Elliot and then I passed!
Elliot taught like a psychologist who targets on planting those good driving habits into your subconscious, which is not only good for the test, but also good for future driving.
You are lucky if you are having Elliot as your instructor from the beginning.

E Fay - Merton, London (10th May 2017)

I just passed my driving test today at morden test centre and i couldnt have done it without James, my driving instructor was amazing!! Never felt so comfortable with anyone. He is so perfect at what he does and he makes u feel comfortable and confident about yourself!! GREAT instructor! Could not have done this without him! Thanks James!

Samara Lodhi - Morden, Surrey (10th May 2017)

I passed my driving test on April 26th at Morden test centre. First time taking the test and received two minors. A big thank you to Elliot who was my instructor, he was flexible, patient and honest in preparing me for the test. Learning to drive can be expensive, I found it reassuring to know Elliot wanted me to be absolutely ready for the test, but not just taking lessons for the sake of it. Thank you to all at Britannia for your help. Sincerely, Iain

Iain Ridley - Merton, London (9th May 2017)

Sharon Madede - Hammersmith, London (3rd May 2017)

I just passed my test in Morden. My driving instructor, Elliot, was recommended to me by a work colleague and he was great. He is very patient and friendly and I couldn’t recommend him highly enough.

C Harrington - Wandsworth, London (3rd May 2017)

George was very thorough and diligent, as well as being a very nice guy.
