I was nervous & anxious about the fact that, at 30, I was a late starter in learning to drive. I couldn’t have been the easiest pupil to teach, I was always saying “I can’t do it”. Michael was very patient with me and his sense of humour was a big advantage in making me feel relaxed and comfortable. Michael’s teaching methods & his calm & patient approach towards me, made learning fun & boosted my confidence greatly, showing me that I could achieve my main goal of passing my driving test. Proving to me that it was my own lack of confidence, not ability that was holding me back. To Michael teaching people to drive isn’t just a job, he cares about his pupils & goes out of his way (often in his own time) to help his pupils. Michael was always punctual for my lessons, he was patient, calm, positive & professional at all times. I would recommend Michael to anyone wanting to learn to drive, regardless of age & ability.
I had driven for some 80 hours but was becoming desperate having failed my test 7 times. Within only 4 months, after starting with Michael, my driving was dramatically improved and I passed first time in Newcastle. I am entirely grateful and it was money certainly well spent. Michael is an excellent instructor with plenty of technical knowledge, patience and pride in his work.
