"I would recommend this driving school for anyone looking to pass their test soon. I passed last week with 0 minors. Pete Burke was a great instructor, professional and due to his high standards the test was a breeze. All the best. Ollie"

"Before I started at Peter Skelton Driving School with Tomasz, I have had a few driving lessons with another driving school which caused me to lose all of my confidence. I thought I would never learn how to drive and then one of my friends recommended Tomasz. In my first lesson with Tomasz, I was so nervous and scared to drive but he helped me to calm down and teach me everything step by step from scratch. He is an excellent instructor, he is patient and calm. He helped me to understand the logic behind the rules by explaining them very well and with patience, he helped me to feel very confident when driving. Now I am really enjoying driving. He is a great observer as well, he didn’t miss any mistake I had done during the lessons and he also knew what I was thinking when I did the mistakes! I feel so lucky and happy to have had him as my instructor. And as a result, I passed my driving test on my first attempt! I would recommend Tomasz and Peter Skelton Driving School (actually already recommended for so many of my friends) for everyone and I can’t thank Tomasz enough for his patience and effort!"

After first lesson - "Had my first driving lesson in seven years last week, initially nervous at first to start driving again but slowly shook it off thanks to Peter. He tailors the lessons to your own pace while providing a calm learning environment and is clear in giving instructions. Look forward to learning with him more next week!!"

After passing - "I passed my practical on the 2nd August and I could not have done it without Peter’s guidance. He holds you to a very high standard but believe me it pays off!! Another big thank you to Peter and the driving school, I would highly recommend him for anyone looking to pass their test on the first attempt."

"I'm really happy I've just passed the test, we're just returning from the test centre. I've been driving before but after these classes I feel much more confident for driving here in Newbury especially the roundabouts and the narrow streets. That's the tricky part of driving here in the Uk compared to driving in Sao Paulo where I come from."

"I'm Chris and I've just passed my test here at Newbury. It's been tough starting to drive and I remember the first time I drove with my dad my hands were sweating there were marks on the steering wheel. Then I started learning with Peter Skelton and I remember driving around fifth road things started to get a lot easier when you start slow and you feel a lot more calm and you keep building up until your driving lessons become sort of like the test and after that much practice when you do the test it feels entirely natural. Even though I had to deal with getting really close to a lorry on a certain part of my test, it all went fine and came naturaly and finally today I've ended up passing."

"After spending months with one instructor who was inpatient and failed my first test, I just went on the internet and found Peter Skelton. My first day with Tomasz the automatic instructor rekindled my confidence and hope to become a driver. His patience and easy technique coupled with his encouragement made me book my test after few lessons. The confidence I had with Tomasz paid off when I had my test on my birthday and came out in flying colours. I will recommend Peter Skelton to anybody who wants to be a driver no matter how low your confidence is. I can't still believe I passed my driving test after few lessons. Thank you Peter Skelton and thank you Tomasz."
