Our customer reviews

Hi Stephen,
Thank you for all of the lessons and help you have given me.

“I pass first time with Stephen. I was previously with another instructor. I was always super nervous and anxious on road, overthinking the situation while not being responsive enough. It was Stephen who put me at ease and calm me down with his very systematic and organized teaching style. Whatever silly mistakes you made, he would never lose his supreme patience. If you are a nervous learner like me, Stephen is definitely your choice, look no further! “
Stella C.

‘Dear Stephen
Thank you so much for your help in getting Hugo through his test. We can all remember the sense of freedom that comes with it but after Lock down and all that time at home that feeling is I suspect even greater in 2022! Thank you again’

‘Stephen Corless has been an excellent driving instructor for both our children. He is patient, reliable and thorough, but most importantly ensured that both our children were fully prepared for their tests and that they passed first time! We know as parents that they have had excellent instruction and feel safe in the knowledge that they are prepared for driving on their own.’
– Helen

‘Stephen went through every element of driving and the test thoroughly which provided me with the skill to pass first time! I thank him very much for being so patient, helpful and encouraging.’
– E.S

‘When learning to drive with Stephen, he took me through every element that’s involved in the practical driving test very thoroughly. He was very calm when I made mistakes which made me feel comfortable at the wheel. He gave useful tips on things such as manoeuvres, crossroads and roundabouts which were parts of the test that I struggled with. Not only did Stephen help me with passing my test but made me a more experienced and safer driver in the process.’
– W.M

‘Steven was a great driving instructor; he was very patient and calm! He was very easy to get on with which made me more comfortable when learning to drive! Was very flexible so would fit around your scheduled which was good! I would definitely recommend him to friends/family! I really enjoyed the lessons and I was able to pass first time! Thank you Stephen!’
– Nicole

‘It is evident that Stephen wants the best for his students. When teaching me, he helped to celebrate the successes (including passing my driving test) whilst objectively pointing out improvement points in such a way that I avoided the mistake immediately. Stephen has great interpersonal skills and a teaching style that can be naturally tailored. This was the first attempt and pass I made with Stephen. An independent guy with 30 years’ experience under his belt, I reckon he’s ideal whether you’re a brand new or experienced learner.’
– Nina

‘When the time came for me to think about learning to drive, I knew it was vital to consider driving instructors. After all the quality of teaching would directly affect my chances of success. Luckily it did not take me long to decide. Many of my friends had boasted of Stephen’s talents, explaining that his patience, calm and professional attitude was amazing to work with. They were not wrong. Stephen is an excellent teacher with such a friendly persona. I really enjoyed our lessons and was able to pass first time due to his efforts. Thank you Stephen.’
– B. D.

– John

‘Stephen is a great driving instructor; he provides a lot of help and support and teaches you everything you need to know at a perfect pace. I was able to pass my test first time very confidently thanks to Stephen’s fantastic teaching. Anything that I struggled on he picked up really well and was able to go over it more in depth and get it done much better. He is very flexible on times and its very nice person to communicate with. The lessons were planned out on what I needed to learn and I was able to add to it as well, so you know what you will be covering in the next lesson. Overall Stephen provides and great service and I would recommend him to anyone.’
– C. F.

‘The driving lessons were very well guided and prompted, with ample preparatory literature and diagrams before tackling new skills. His organisation and preparation for the lessons was impeccable. Stephen always made me feel safe and in control of my driving. It was a pleasure to spend time with him, and he answered all my questions fully. The car is lovely to drive, responsive and easy to control with tight gears and great brakes. I will recommend Stephen as a consummate professional to anyone needing an instructor in the area.’

‘For me, learning to drive was a very nerve-wracking and challenging process, but I wouldn’t have wanted to learn with anyone else. Stephen was a consistently calm and patient instructor; he understood my problem areas, and knew how to help me overcome them. Confidence was always my main issue, I always felt reassured by him that I could do it. I started off with neither knowledge nor confidence, but over time he helped me gain both, and now I’ve got my licence!’
