What our pupils say about us.

Here’s just a few words from some of our passed pupils. We would like to genuinely thank them all for sharing their thoughts with you.


“I had the best experience working with Paul. He made me feel very calm and relaxed throughout all my lessons and I took this with me and passed my driving test 1st time. I couldn’t have done it without his encouragement and support – Great Guy!!”
Mo, Aspley.


“I found Paul to be a very encouraging driving instructor. His lessons were always focused, but also relaxed. I passed my test first time and a few months later had the confidence to drive a hire car in America on holiday. I feel that Paul did not just help me to pass my driving test but taught me to be a safe, considerate and confident driver. At the same time as preparing you for the test, Paul also prepares you for driving on the roads long after you have passed. I would highly recommend him! Thanks Paul!”
Kate, Nottingham.


“A big thank you to This is Driving, they really made my driving lessons comfortable and fun! There was never a dull moment learning with my instructor and I passed my test first time in six months. Thank you so much, I’ll see you on the road!”
Amy, Ilkeston.


“Amazing instructor, would definitely recommend Pete – can’t go wrong!”
Simon, Nottingham.


“Kevin was everything that I wanted in an instructor. He kept the lessons relaxed and really knew how to grow my confidence on the road. Kevin is an amazing instructor and I would recommend him to anyone!”
Monique, Arnold.


“I started with no previous experience of driving and I passed within 4 months on my 1st attempt. I would highly recommend Paul to anybody who is looking to learn to drive. He was a top guy to work with and still offers support even after I have passed my test.”
Matt, Cinderhill.


“Wouldn’t want to have learnt to drive with anyone else. Passed first time with Pete and with lots of laughs along the way!”
Kirsty, Nottingham.


“My instructor was a very kind, polite and patient. He made me feel very relaxed with great teaching methods. I learnt very quickly and would highly recommend This is Driving in an instant!”
Greg, Kimberley.


“I came to Paul after feeling frustrated by my progress with another instructor and I’m glad I did! From making little progress with my previous instructor over a couple of months, Paul really believed in and got behind me and within the same time I had passed my test on my 1st attempt. Thanks Paul!”
Eddie, Radcliffe on Trent.


“I had no previous driving experience and would consider myself as a nervous learner, however I very quickly became confident and at ease about learning to drive thanks to Kevin. I would recommend Kevin to anyone who’s looking for a friendly, patient instructor.”
Nicole, Basford.


“I had a great time learning to drive with Pete. Every lesson was fun and even though I was nervous and wasn’t exactly a natural, I still managed to pass my test on the first attempt thanks to him.”
Leanne, Nottingham.


“I found Paul to be very friendly, always smiling and patient with me. He was an excellent driving instructor and I thoroughly enjoyed every lesson I had with him. He got me through my test first time within 3 months! I would thoroughly recommend him to everyone!!!”
Jessica, Cotgrave.


“I passed my test on the first attempt and with just 2 minors – I think that says it all! Pete was not only professional in his job he was also a pleasure to be sat with. I would recommend him to anyone.”
Ryan, Nottingham.


“Paul is a fantastic instructor, always friendly, helpful and supporting. I was a very nervous learner when on the road with other road users and Paul was always able to keep me calm and feel confident behind the wheel. He was very encouraging and he always strives to get you to be the best that you can be. I passed first time with Paul and would highly recommend him to anyone.”
Susie, Basford.


“Our Pete is a great guy and the lessons where always fun! I don’t easily pick things up but I passed first time on my theory and passed my test first time too – all thanks to Pete! I’m so proud of myself – Thank you so much. I’d definitely recommend Pete!!”
Amy, Nottingham.


“I would not hesitate to recommend This is Driving. My instructor was a lovely guy, patient with any mistakes you might make and he’ wasn’t afraid to tell you if you go wrong and advise you how to put it right. He must be doing something right as I passed my test first time without any minors! Thanks for your help!”
Emma, Ilkeston.


“Kevin is a very relaxed and encouraging driving instructor. I came to him after feeling really uncomfortable with my previous instructor from another driving school. Kevin really built up my confidence and I passed first time! He makes the lessons really enjoyable and I would recommend him to anyone !”
Ellie, Keyworth.


“Paul is an absolutely fantastic instructor who I would recommend very highly. I found all the lessons to be paced perfectly, well organised and crammed full of new learning. At the same time, they were very chilled which really helped to build my confidence on the roads. Paul certainly goes the extra mile and helps you think about driving long after you have passed your test. I have found this to be extremely invaluable! I passed first time which is a real testament to his skill and expertise as a teacher.”
Tom, Nottingham.
