Rebecca Daniel passed April 2013

" Paul was recommended to me by a friend over 3 years ago, I started lessons but my finances at the time forced me to stop.

This year I decided to started up again and it never crossed my mind to look for another instructor because I knew Paul was going to get me through my test with no stress or worry.  He is patient and is easy to talk to and that makes learning to drive a pleasure. 

I have recommended him to other people in the past and will continue to do so.  Thank you! "

Daniel Slater passed May 2012

" Learning to drive under Paul was both enjoyable and informative. He made me feel at ease from the first moment I sat behind the wheel; he is, put simply, committed to you as an individual learner, and is endowed with not only the patience one wishes for in an instructor but the friendliness which makes the learning process most valuable."

“ I have been taking driving lessons with Paul Robinson which I have enjoyed.  He is a patient and pleasant instructor as well as being easy to get along with and he made me feel comfortable with him.  I would recommend Paul to anyone who is wishing to take lessons.  Paul also helped me greatly with my theory test as he has a website that he lets his students use, and I would not have been able to pass either my theory or practical with out him.”

Melissa Pole passed in June 2011

“After turning 17 in 2011, I began to take my driving lessons with Paul Robinson. My lessons were excellent and I felt very comfortable during each one and consequently I passed first time, with only one minor fault. 

Each lesson I learnt a new manoeuvre and improved on all driving skills, if there was anything I was unsure of, he would find different ways to help me understand.

I would recommend Paul to anyone who is learning to drive. He is patient and understanding and will strive to help you to accomplish your driving to a way that suits you. Many thanks to Paul again for my lessons."  Melissa Pole
