Would highly recommend Ian to anyone looking for driving lessons. He is calm and patient and gives clear and concise instructions. His tips and advice at the end of every lesson were invaluable, especially in simplifying manoeuvres. Ian was always prepared and on time and willing to accommodate extra lessons on the lead up to my test

BEST INSTRUCTOR I highly recommend Ian, as every lesson he went over and above my expectations.
He was very patient when teaching, always made me feel relaxed in the car, and always had faith in me in what ever task we had to do. His teaching is immaculate and gives very clear instructions. I am proud to have been one of his pupils and could not ask for a better learning experience. From start to finish Ian did his best to prepare me for my test, to make sure I was a safe confident driver and the results paid off when I came back with my pass certificate! If you want a comfortable enjoyable driving experience I could not recommend Ian more!
