"After failing my driving test first time and trying several different instructors it was great to find one who was reliable, patient and very thorough. After only a couple of lessons I was confident that I would pass this time and I did! He really boosted my confidence and made me feel like I could do it! Thanks!"

Sarah Tyler

"After four previous driving instructors I finally found the right instructor. For the first time I enjoyed going on driving lessons. Before I had seen them as a chore. I had failed tests and had become quite disheartened. Steve made driving a more relaxing experience with realistic achievable goals.

All I can say is that I can't thank him enough. He is a brilliant driving instructor. Without him I honestly don't think I would have passed."

Emily Miller

"I started from scratch, and at first before lessons, I couldn't even do the clutch but after a 2 hours session with Steve, I smashed it! From then I just progressed so fast. I had lessons for 6 months and then I went in for my driving test and passed first time which I'm extremely proud of, although I couldn't of done it without the help from Steve. He's a brilliant teaching, calm and friendly driving instructor. I couldn't recommend him enough."

Amy Yates

"I would like to say a massive thank you to you for teaching me and being patient with me and helping me get to where I am now, without you and your excellent teaching I wouldn't have been able to do it. Thank you again for everything you've done, I will always be grateful for helping me in gaining this life skill!"

Henry Underwood

"I'd previously had driving lessons before I went to University but I was really a unconfident driver and kept making the same mistakes again and again. I was always stalling the car and couldn't get to grips with the gears. Steve really boosted my confidence and explained things in a way that made sense to me.  I passed my test first time with one minor! I'm so happy and would highly recommend Steve to anyone. Thank you so much Steve! "

Hannah Grimes

"Starting to drive again after a gap of 15 years was a humbling process, and it helped a great deal to have Echo One Driver Training coaching me through it.  They were patient, and great coaches, and (most importantly!) nice guys to be stuck in a car for many hours with.  I've already recommended them to friends and family."


Matt Hendersen

"As a very nervous first time driver, Steve really helped me to relax and feel comfortable on the roads. Lessons were always tailored to what I needed to work on most that day and times were flexible. I was only recommended the amount of hours I needed to pass, whilst still learning to be a safe driver. I went from a nervous wreck to a confident, able driver and I passed first time! Thank you very much!"
