"I cannot thank Louise enough, I called on such short notice as my test was cancelled in Reading and needed help straight away. Louise helped me get used to the roads in Newbury in just 2 hours, she was a fantastic instructor. Its a shame i can only give her 5 stars."

"Hi Peter, Just thought I’d drop you an email about my Part 3 exam last week. As you know I was successful at my second attempt and I’m absolutely thrilled to be joining the ranks of ADI. I found out that the current success rate of Part 3 is only 12.5%!! Overall the examiner was very complimentary and for some reason was surprised that I hadn’t been working as a PDI on a training licence. I put that down to your training, it clearly stuck .
All I can say is a huge thank you for all your help and support over the last few months and getting me through the Part 2 and Part 3 exams. I’ve worked really because I was determined not to fail on my second attempt. In hindsight I probably went for the test too soon after our training in September. I should have spent more time practicing what you had taught me. But, I’m qualified now and that’s all that matters.
Mike"

"Highly recommend! My instructor Louise couldn't have been more positive and supportive and took me on a variety of routes across Newbury and Thatcham. I would also like to thank Ray who i only had a couple of lessons with before my test and was brilliant on the day of the test, agreeing to sit in the back of the car during my test to calm my nerves down!"

Nick Canes - Newbury

"After just 20 hours of lessons with Peter, today I went and passed my test with only two minors! I thoroughly recommend the Peter Skelton Driving School. Not only did he teach me everything I needed to know, we did it whilst be able to have a laugh and chat at the same time. Peter is an extremely self-motivated man who strives for you to succeed, and pushes you to do so. Thank you!"

"Driving didn’t exactly come naturally to me but Mr Skelton persevered extremely patiently, making passing first time surprisingly achievable. Plus, lessons were always super fun!! I am so glad I learned with Peter and would advise anyone looking for lessons to ‘Put your seat belt on, and learn with Peter Skelton’ (still think this should be the official slogan…) Thanks again Peter, you’re the best!"

"Was an amazing experience! Im so greateful that from all the driving schools i chose, you where the first to pick up. You’re indeed a teacher, Peter, so patient, easy going, putting up with my bad english and my goldfish attention span. All in all , a PROFESSIONAL! Passed on my first and that was all your hard work, honestly. Thank you, thank you, thank you !"
Kerrie Walker - Newbury
Manual

"Having had a less than constructive experience with another driving school, Peter Skelton was recommended to me by several colleagues who had successfully learnt with him. He made me feel at ease from my first lesson and I never thought I’d be able to pass first time which is testament to Peter's teaching style, patience and great sense of humour...even through my (occasional) tears and (not so occasional) nervous swearing! So huge thanks to you and Ray who took me to test. I’d definitely recommend the Peter Skelton Driving School to anyone who’s looking to learn or refresh their driving skills."
Anna Gildersleeves - Newbury
