“After a long search for an excellent driving instructor I found Mike, a Grade 6 driving instructor (which indicates a very high standard). And II was not disappointed.

Mike tailor-made the lessons to my particular needs. I passed my driving exam first time with only three minor faults.

Although was as pupils focus on passing the exam Mike focuses on pupils to become a safe and confident driver.

I would highly recommend Mike to anyone, especially to a nervous learner driver.

I am delighted my driving adventure is completed.

Thank you Mike"

Mike took the process of learning to drive at a pase that suited me, making me feel confident and ready by the tinme I took my test.

I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to learn to drive.”

Thank you so much for being such as awesome driving instructor.

You have helped me overcome the fear of driving and now thanks to you, I am a pro driver!  Just kidding, not yet :)

However, I hoipe that one day I will become a confident driver just like you and I will continue to use the skills and knowledge that you have taught me.

Once again, thank you Mike”

"Ever since I arrived to the UK I was eager to obtain my UK driving license.

I booked my first 10 hours with Mike as I needed to learn how to drive in the UK, as I am an international person.

Thanks to Mike patience and helpful advice I could obtain my UK driving license.  Also, I found very important his style of teaching. I do recommend Mike to everyone who wishes to learn to drive.”

"Mike was a brilliant Driving Instructor.

I passed first time and I believe it was because Mike kept me calm and had confidence in me.

He taught me how to be a safe driver in the real world, not just to get me through my test. Thank you Mike!

I would (and have) highly recommend him to anyone looking for a Driving Instructor."

Sarah, Northampton."

"Mike is an excellent Driving Instructor and was extremely patient with me.

The comments and feedback given were highly beneficial for not only passing the test (the first time) but also to become a safe and independent driver.

He made the learning to drive process very relaxing and enjoyable for me.

I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Thank you so much Mike"

"Mike doesn't just teach you to pass yopu test. he makes sure you're confident in all different situations so you are safe after you pass.

Lessons were enjoyable and relaxed, with Mikes ability to explain something 5 different ways until I understood completely.

Before my test, Mike helped calm me down and got me in the right frame of mind.

Due to Mikes brilliant teaching, I passed first time with only 4 minors.

Thankyou so much!"

Lucy, Northampton.

"You do not only need to be good driver to pass your Practical Test but you need to be a good performer on the day as well. That s why you need Mike's help.

I had been driving for a few years prior to coming to the UK and I thought it would be a piece of cake to pass my test but I failed the first time with an astonishing 19 faults.

Mike guided me through the exact points on a safe, practical drive and made my test a lot easier. At the end of the day you do not only pass your test but you become a better driver as well.

I highly recommend Mike to anyone planning to sit their practical test”.

"Mike was a brilliant instructor who not only helps to increase your knowledge of the road and driving, but makes the lessons enjoyable and stress-free!

Mike really helped me to calm my nerves before my test and as a result of his brilliant skills, I passed first time!.

Thank you so much Mike."

Claire, Northampton.

"I passed my test on the 1/12/11. I had previously failed seven times with a different instructor but with mike I managed to pass first time.

I found Mikes way of teaching really efficient and thorough, there was a number of new ideas and methods that I had never been taught previously and which helped me to pass my test.

I feel Mike has a great blend of teaching skills and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a driving instructor.

“The key I found with Mikes training was his willingness to identify what I struggled with, then give valuable advice and time to work out these areas.

His patient and friendly mentality allowed me to learn very quickly and pass first time. Most importantly, he made the experience enjoyable, so thank you Mike."

"Mike is a really excellent teacher. He was patient and even-tempered with me even when I did really stupid things. He helped to make me feel at ease in many awkward situations.

On the day of my test Mike really helped with the pre-test nerves and managed to make me feel a lot more clam and relaxed than I had previously.

He was also really reliable with times and dates as well which was quite helpful and when I wanted to add another lesson a week he made the effort to find a day that suited.

Overall, I would highly recommend Mike to anyone who wants to learn to drive, he is friendly and overall a very nice and encouraging person who is very good at his job."

Josey, Milton Keynes

"I could not drive a car when I met Mike for the first time.In such a sort period of time Mike bequeathed the relevant knowledge to me.I was getting better every time I had a lesson and Mikes hints turned out to be key and irreplaceable. I passed my driving test the first time by dint of Mike, his passion and patience.

Many, Many Thanks Mike."

Przemyslaw, Northampton


"Mike was my second driving instructor and I found his style suited me. It turned out to be the best decision I've ever made. He was really friendly and very professional. If there was anything I wasn't confident about doing or didn't understand, it wasn't a problem for Mike to keep telling/showing me how to do it. I passed both my practical and theory test first time.
