"I started learning to drive back in December 2014, My teacher Ray was patient, calm and excellent and getting me to a level where i was confident and able to pass the test. He also threw in some excellent and not so excellent jokes…thanks Ray, you’re a legend! Ray was an absolute super hero, got me from not knowing anything about cars and how to drive them to passing my test on the first attempt in three and a half months...Thanks a lot Ray!"

"Finally i get to the point were i can offer a review for Peter Skelton as instructor. I haven’t ever drive in my life so i was scared as a child doing first steps without help, but with Peter on the passenger seat as an instructor everything felt as normal. I still have a long way to my drive test but so far i have passed my theory and instead learning as a parrot all the theory he helped me understanding it in practice. He is a brilliant teacher and gives you the all confidence in the world and same times knows how to make a point when you do a mistake but on calm/strong tone without putting you on a bad light. I doubt i could’ve find a better choice out there and thank you Peter Skelton Driving School for having me as learner!!!!!"

"Ladies and gentlemen, Peter Skelton has proven himself a worthy mentor to teach me the ways of the road. With his calm nature and unique sense of humour to go with his serious professionalism, Peter kept me focused and hard-working through both good drives and bad drives. As a result of his intelligent ways of engaging a student, I have successfully passed my test. So if you require an inspirational tutor who is more than capable of getting the facts into you in a stress-free manner, Peter is your man. Go Team Peter."

"First lesson- Just wanted to say thanks for the access to the theory test software - I passed the test yesterday with 48 out of 50 on the multiple choice and 71 out of 75 points on the hazard perception so very happy :). The software was a great help and I spent nearly all of my spare time practicing on it. Lessons are coming along superbly and Louise has been a huge help - I am really enjoying myself. Looking forward to my practical test now, cheers, Mike.
After passing- Many thanks guys, Louise was superb and really helpful I could not be happier with all the help I got and over the moon I passed. Louise is a superb instructor and really helped me a lot. I have already been recommending you guys to everyone :). Thanks again."
