Testimonials from our Happy Students

We love it when our students pass their driving test and love to give them a chance to feedback on their experiences while learning with us. This page shows a small selection of the many positive comments we've received over the years.

Well done, everyone, and thank you for your kind words.

Excellent standards of teaching, I thoroughly enjoyed learning to drive with Ian Lavell and would recommend him to anyone, he was recommended to me by a friend and I'm glad i took their advice.

Dana M.

Had 3 instructors and had been learning for a year before I started to learn with Rob. He quickly built up the confidence other instructors had taken away from me and has given me the ability to get into the car and drive without worry - definitely recommend.

Chloe T.

Rob has made my driving experience an ease, he’s a great instructor! From not having a great experience with a past instructor and completely giving up with driving for 2 years, Rob has made driving an easy and enjoyable experience! Would highly recommend 😃

Zoe L.

Really great instructor and top guy. He doesn’t just teach you to pass but to pass with dignity!

Daniel M.

Ian has been helping me over the past year to achieve my part two and part three test. I struggle with self confidence but Ian brings the best out of you and helps you achieve your goal. Couldn’t recommend Ian enough!

Richard A.

I can't thank Ian Lavell at Qualify enough for seeing me through to a successful completion of my ADI qualification.
Straight talking, no fuss, friendly and very professional at all times.

Robert A.

Ian’s invaluable help, patient approach and manner helped me through my advanced motoring course. His experience was key; I personally responded well to the approach of his lesson layout and the objectives he set prior to each lesson.

Bruce B.-T.

After Training with Ian for my Part 2 and Part 3, I managed to pass both tests first time. I would recommend Ian to all who would like to become an ADI, he has a easy manner and great personality.

Sergio P. ADI

Qualify driver education and training provide the training that I needed to become a driving instructor. I can say that without them I would not have had the skills to begin teaching, pass assessments and gain my qualification.
