    positive review  Gary has been an absolutely fantastic instructor from day 1. He has always been extremely patient, calm and given instruction in a constructive manor. It is with this and his vast driving knowledge that has aided a very anxious me to pass my test. Gary is also very friendly and has great way of making a learner driver feel at ease on the roads. I would highly recommend Gary to anyone wanting to learn to drive - he’s definitely the best instructor to choose! Thanks again Gary ? Becky

    positive review  My Son was taught by Gary Wood and I couldn't be happier with the way Gary taught him. Excellent from day 1 and really flexible and helpful on the times Harvey was available to learn. Really helped Harvey with his calming influence and would recommend to anyone. Thanks again Gary. Cheers Sean

    5 star review  Recommend Gary 100%. With very little driving experience I passed within a month of starting lessons with Gary, very flexible and always found time to take me out even at weekends. Thankyou!!

    5 star review  Gary was an amazing driving instructor, he was able to build my confidence and enable me to pass with just one minor. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Gary to anyone wishing to learn. The only downside of passing my test finally is no longer having our weekly chats! Thanks Gary! �

Testimonial From Carole Spurgeon

“My instructor Gary Wood was patient, kind and understanding to my fears about driving on today’s roads. I was 49 when I passed my driving test and could not have done it without Gary.”

“I had a fear of motorway driving but Gary took me on the motorway several times after I had passed, until I felt confident to go on my own.”

“There is now no motorway anywhere that I would not drive on and passing my test was the best thing I ever did and I will always be grateful to Gary for his kind and confident, professional instruction.”
