Client Reviews – Manual Driving Lessons

Johnny was very friendly, always helpful and an excellent instructor. I always felt like I got my moneys worth and was 100% confident on test day. Couldn’t have done it without him. Have already reccomended Brittania to friends!

Elliot is the walking definition of a Master at his craft. I’ve had multiple instructors over the past 10 years of learning to drive, but Elliot made me feel comfortable on all my lessons. I found myself waking up on time exited for my 8am lessons when I don’t even wake up on time to go to my day job. He was also very flexible and accommodated me especially in the last 3 days before my test, when I texted him “Are you available today?” he always made time for me.

Elliot has transformed my life, and I will be recommending all my friends interested in a driving license to reach out to him. I passed first time, and I was nervous at first (If you’re not nervous, you’re not human!) but after setting off with the examiner, my nerves went away as I believed in my training and the training that Elliot provided to get me to pass. His voice is now hardwired into my subconscious whenever I drive, and that is a comforting thought.

10/10 couldn’t have asked for a better instructor.
Kiss the brakes.

I had a wonderful experience with this driving school, Elliot, my instructor was really good and encouraging, and helped me be able to pass my driving test on my first try. Thank you!

George is an amazing driving instructor and goes above and beyond for his pupils. I have had five different driving instructors from different companies over the course of trying to pass my test and all of them seem to only be there for the pay check at the end of the day but George from Britannia was the best instructor I’ve had by a mile, he actually cares about his pupils that he teaches and wants to make sure you pass. I only had three two hour lessons with him the week of my test and a one hour lesson on the day of my test, so he didn’t have much time to prepare me for it but I have to say in them seven hours he taught me more and got me more ready than any other instructor has before even when I had over ten lessons with each of them. He spent most of the seven hours of me practicing moaning at me about the things I was doing wrong, moaning about the same things over and over again but it was only to get me ready and to give me the best chance of passing. He puts his heart and soul into making sure you pass. So I would like to say a massive thank you to George for everything he has done for me and getting me ready for my test. I passed my test this morning and I know I couldn’t have done it without George. Anyone looking for a driving instructor I would highly recommend George as he will put in the effort to make sure you are ready for it.

My driving instructor was James Ryan. When I first started driving I was very anxious to be driving a car and how much would I need to remember. I told James that I was very anxious, and he was very understanding and patient with me. He explained everything clearly and easy to understand and was happy to help if I didn’t understand.

After I grew confidence to drive on the road, James had me learn all the basic on how to behave on the road and most importantly how to drive safely. There were times where I was frustrated with myself stalling, but James was always there to help and encourage me that everything was fine and to just take it slow and easy.

James helped me prepare for the driving test, taking me on difficult roads, junctions, asking me the different questions that the examiner could potentially ask me. James very much cared about both you passing the test and for you to be a safe and great driver after the test.

All the knowledge and skills I’ve learnt from James are priceless. They will definitely help me on the road and grow to be a more experience driver.

I would definitely recommend James as a driving instructor, especially those who are very anxious to get on the road, like I was. He taught me everything I needed to know and more.

I passed my test on 02/05 with only 1 minor. Jon F was a great instructor and set me up well for my test, helping me work on areas that I was less confident on.

Alex S (3rd May 2022)

i passed my driving test today with only one minor fault. Elliot has been an amazing instructor and i highly recommend him to anyone else learning to drive.

Niam Patel (27th April 2022)

Elliot is an amazing and thorough instructor and I am very happy with the quality of lessons that I had. I will definitely be recommending Britannia and Elliot to any friends and family that might want to get their license.

Lucas Pinto Palazzo Ferreira (13th April 2022)

Thank you so much Elliot, for your kindness, patience and wonderful teaching method.
I passed today at Morden with 3 minors and still can’t believe it. Thank you!

Alice Towner (31st March 2022)

Passed first time with my driving instructor Elliot. Very kind and willing to put in hours to help you get great results!

India Servaes (15th March 2022)

I passed my exam at Mitcham Test Centre !!! I am very happy that my instructor was Peter P. Without his help, I would probably never have passed the exam. Peter P has a very high level of knowledge and is able to pass this knowledge on, very calm, friendly. I definitely recommend any instructor like Peter P. Thank you. Beata

Beata Bukowska (30th March 2022)

I would like to thank Elliot for helping me pass my driving test first time.
Nice guy and I enjoyed chatting with him during our lessons 🙂

Farah Mahmood (15th March 2022)

I just want to thank Johnnie who was my driving instructor for the Hither Green test centre. He has been patient with me since day one even during the height of the pandemic. I passed with two minors! Thanks to Britannia and the team!

James G. (7th March 2022)

I had George as my instructor and I couldn’t have asked for more. I’ve tried and used other instructors in the past and they didn’t compare! I thought I would never pass my test but going into it I couldn’t have felt more prepared and confident. The girls in the office were a great help too. Thank you so much!!!

patrick conway (3rd March 2022)

Elliot has been a fantastic instructor who has helped me pass first time! He is very knowledgeable and has a great way of teaching. Lovely man as well!

Young Winter (3rd March 2022)

I would highly recommend Britannia Driving school. I didn’t think I would be able to pass as I am a nervous person and I get stressed easily.However, Jon took all these stresses and worries away. Jon was extremely knowledgable about the test routes and gave me handy tips and tricks to make manoeuvres easier.I passed first time with 3 minors at the Tolworth centre.

Jon was always on time and very organised when it came to booking in lessons in advanced and creating lesson plan structures.

Thank you Jon and Britannia Driving School!

Ailsa Pack (28th February 2022)

I passed first time after having lessons with Elliot! We got a lot done under a very limited space of time and wouldn’t have been able to do it without Elliot’s help!


Alex Santos (21st February 2022)

Elliot is a brilliant instructor! He has a great way of explaining things and is very patient. I would recommend his lessons to anyone learning to drive!

Elizabeth Dinsdale (17th February 2022)

Leaving a review for George for a first time pass with 3 driving faults. Was very helpful, nice and wouldnt have done it without him

Tayfun Elmaci (16th February 2022)

I want to thank Peter P for helping me pass my driving test last week ( Mitcham test centre) with only 1 minor fault ! I had a 2 others instructors before and… Each lesson with him made me feel confident and boosted my confidence. Lessons in a great atmosphere and humor. Extremely composed, calm, extremely polite, full of tact, understanding, respect and professional with an unusual sense of humor. As a woman, I felt safe with him. He always made sure that I came home safely and only then did he drive away from my house. An unusual approach. One of the best instructors I know or heard. I recommend it with all my heart.
