'“After years of driving lessons and 2 driving instructors I was really nervous starting with James. But he completely got rid of my nerves, taking me through everything and is really patient! I’ve loved having lessons with James and he’s a real credit to all driving instructors and the business! Thanks so much James!”'

Julie explains every detail clearly and if you still have problems understanding Julie will keep explaining until you get it and it sinks in.
