"After previously trying with another driving school in Newbury, I came back from university and took lessons with Peter. He hugely helped to improve my confidence, which was initially quite low. He has a friendly manner and was so easy to get along with. I thoroughly enjoyed learning to drive with him and would highly recommend him to anyone! I passed first time with only 1 minor – something I never thought possible before. Thanks for everything Peter"

"Peter’s teaching has landed me 5 years no claims! I was also worried about my brother joining my insurance but he also had Peter as a teacher so my no claims bonus remains untouched. Thanks Pete! 😊"

"I had about 5 lessons with Pete Burke who throughout gave me the tips I needed to pass my test first time but not only that he helped me better understand what I needed to improve on by focusing in on problematic areas. If I had trouble with a specific part of a route we would do it again until I felt comfortable with completing it in a test situation. Thanks again Pete for helping me get the result I wanted."

"I've been learning on and off for several years and have had several driving instructors in that time. Learning with Pete Burke was by far the easiest and pleasantest of those experiences- he quickly got my confidence up and had a really can-do attitude, especially given that I had a short deadline for my test, and needed to learn a lot.
I'd thoroughly recommend him and Peter Skelton school to anyone learning in the Newbury area. I've never been quite so relaxed and confident in my own abilities. - ooh and 'I never expected to pass first time!"

"I cannot thank Louise from Peter Skelton Driving School enough for all of her hard work and patience as she taught me how to drive. With all of her fantastic help I managed to PASS my driving test on the very first go.
I highly recommend Louise from Peter Skelton Driving School. Thank you Louise for everything and may lots of other new drivers benefit from your tutoring."

"Absolutely chuffed that I passed earlier today!
Peter rest is a top class driving instructor and I highly recommend that you learn with him. He is perfectly calm throughout the whole learning process and this helps with fast progression. Peter is great at spotting what you personally need to improve on in order to pass and then he works on it until you can almost do it blindfolded!
Again, I highly recommend that learn with him."

"My neighbour recommended me to Peter Skelton, and it was the best choice I made. He is a patient teacher and adapts to your learning style. He also injects humour into our driving lessons, so that I can learn while having some laughs. It has been a great experience learning with Peter. Thank you!
I would highly recommend anyone to take driving lessons with Peter Skelton."

"I’m very pleased to have passed my test, initially I was with a different driving school but I didn’t enjoy the experience there, once I started learning with Peter Skelton and in particular Tomasz things changed for the better as my confidence grew and I looked forward to lessons.
He is a great instructor who is able to explain things in just the right way so that it makes sense, and I felt at ease with him from the first lesson, I battled with nerves when driving but Tomasz found ways of showing me how to overcome this.
I would like to take this opportunity to recommend Tomasz and Peter Skelton driving school.
Thank you Tomasz for your patience and understanding, I got there in the end."

"I learnt to drive with Peter himself and having previously had a couple lessons with another driving school I wouldn’t choose anyone else to learn with if I were to do it again! Peter not only helps you with driving to pass your test but also driving once you’ve passed to ensure you’re doing things safely! Thank you so much Peter! 100% would recommend!"
