I just wanted to say thank you for all help in getting me up to the standard to pass my driving test. I was previously with another instructor and so am able to say that in comparison you were a much better teacher. Your calmness and good sense of humour made driving with you a pleasure!

take it easy mate.

"Fantastic lessons, from no driving experience to passed in a month was a near

miracle taking me from frequent staller who would panic under pressure to a pass

at the first go.

Instilled confidence, had great belief I could do it and positive attitude all

round. Great to get along with, a very personable and likeable character.

Never got frustrated once(at least didn't show it!) in the countless times I

messed something up.

Teaching-wise I doubt you would find better, everything is broken down into

manageable pieces until you can put all pieces of the puzzle together and

everything is made to feel easy.

If you are struggling on something Adam appears to have the patience of a saint

going over it time and time again until you feel confident with it.

Would definitely recommend Adam's Driving School to friends - thanks very much

for inspiring the confidence and belief that I could achieve my target for

passing(even I thought it might be a little bit ambitious judging where I was

starting from!)

Cheers, Gavin"

"Learning to drive was so enjoyable with Adam, i saw he had great reviews and from the first lesson he gave me back my confidence after my first driving instructor. He is calm and great at teaching always giving clear instructions, but more important always up for a laugh and makes learning to drive stress free! He even helped me all i needed to pass my theory. I would recommend Adam to anybody 10/10!"

"Adam is an excellent instructor, I can highly recommend him for learners who have taken lessons before and need a new instructor in order to pass. He was excellent at picking up on my bad habits and helping me correct them as well as building my confidence and helping me to relax." Catch you later man, Ben."

"Adam is great, everything you would want from a driving instructor......organised, patient, thorough and honest. Adam will take you through the stages at the right pace getting you ready for your test as quickly as possible. I went from hating driving with a passion to actually enjoying being behind the wheel after just a few lessons with Adam. I would highly recommend him to anybody! Cheers Adam!"

"Adam is very approachable and friendly. He made me feel totally at ease, his

instruction was far better and more understandable than previous 2 instructors

that I've had. He made the lesson fun. I had no confidence, having failed 4

pervious tests with other instructors, going with Adam was the best thing I did,

he gave me loads of confidence which enabled me to pass my test with flying

colours. Would highly recommended Adam to other learners.

A very happy Zoe Armitage "

"Hello, my name is Shane Hartley I am 42 years old and never thought I would be able to drive. I started having lessons with Adam in February 2011. He was very helpful and had a lot of patients with me as I was very nervous and didn't have much confidence. I kept it up and found the experience very rewarding. I went on to pass my test first time with only 5 minors in November. I would highly recommend Adam to anyone who wants to learn to drive. If I can do it anyone can.

"Adam is a very friendly and top-notch instructor who helped me deal with all my nerves right from the first moments of my first lesson in September 2011. He is very helpful and has an abundance of patience, which helped me build my confidence. He will never tell you off if you make mistakes but will work with you to eliminate them and build up your driving skills. As a result, I passed my test first time with only 3 minors in January 2012. I would highly recommend Adam Smith to anyone wishing to take driving lessons. – Grant Mbewe.

"Driving lessons with Adam were such good times, even the messier times involving pheasants. He really is a great teacher and will see you right through from your nervous first lesson to making you feel relaxed come the big test day. Lessons were always fun and he is very patient with people who generally aren't very good. Just make sure you don't owe him any money! Joking aside, if you are thinking about learning to drive, he is your man! Cheers for everything Adam,

"I would highly recommend learning to drive with Adam. His teaching style is one that builds confidence and provides the necessary skills to be a safe driver, as well as making sure you are comfortable behind the wheel from the first lesson. The additional insights, practical advice, mock tests and critique helped me greatly and gave me the grounding to pass first time. Many thanks, Hannah.

"Just want to say a big thank you for helping me learning to drive, and ultimately pass my test. After two unsuccessful attempts with previous instructors I was delighted that you made the process simple from start to finish. You made me feel relaxed, explained exactly what we were going to be doing, and always looking to encourage me wherever possible. I can honestly say I couldn't have done it without you!"

"Would like to give a big thank you to Adam for the help and support he offered on helping me through my exam. He is a fantastic instructor and would recommend to anybody. He is clear and supportive and if unsure he will he will go through it again he is now currently teaching my younger brother who now only after few lessons is showing great confidence and speaks highly of him to everybody. Again a big thank you.

With Kind Regards

""I had the unforeseen stress of changing driving instructors with only two weeks to my practical test. However, Adam instantly calmed me with his highly professional, reassuring and funny nature. Four lessons later and I had passed my practical test!! I just wish I had had Adam as my driving instructor from the very start!!"

Thanks again!

Thank you very much for helping me pass, you gave me confidence and a laugh at the same time and i wouldn’t have asked for more. I never thought i’d pass for the first time, i was so shocked, thank you so much and i hope no one drives in to a wall with your car.

Best Wishes and Many Thanks

"“For some, beginning to learn to drive is a fun and exciting challenge. For others, it is a scary and daunting prospect. I was one of the latter… However, with Adam’s friendly encouragement and patience, what could have been a chore became a real pleasure, both my brother and I passed our tests first time. As a learner, the bad practices and selfish driving habits of other road users can really shake your confidence, especially if you’re already nervous about beginning to drive. A friendly driving instructor can make all the difference though, and for that reason I cannot recommend Adam highly enough. Happy driving!”

Thanks again for all your help. Very happy about today’s result.

Will be in touch re. Pass Plus.

Adam a first class driving instructor who gives you confidence in your own abilities,ironing out any issues along the way and always in a calm assured manner,which i found invaluable in passing,thanks again Adam"

"From the very first time I drove with Adam, he set out a clear plan of what we were going to do during the lesson; each new lesson builds on the one before it which meant I could see real progress in my driving skill and confidence even in a short space of time. Adam is patient, ensures you pay attention to detail, and a good laugh once you're confident enough to have a conversation and drive at the same time (I take it for granted now but it does take a little while!) Adam really is a fantastic driving instructor and I couldn't have passed so well without him. Thank you so much for making my learning experience such an enjoyable one!

Have a lovely summer, all the best :)"

"If Carlsberg done Driving Instructers.....then she would have been a buxom blonde ...however since they don't then Adam is the next best thing.

He explains everything well, is precise and patient and puts you at ease straight away. I didn't think I had a chance of passing my test first time but with Adam's planning I sailed through. We had a good laugh throughout and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Adam.....cheers mate you are brilliant....I hope we cross paths again.

"" Adam deserves a gold medal for the highest quality of instruction and support he provided whilst I was learning to drive.

His teaching methods are clear and precise and explained at a level which are easy to understand.

I would recommend him to anybody who is after a top level instructor.

Thanks for everything Adam,

"I began my driving lessons on March 4th 2012 and passed my test on the first attempt on August 1st 2012.

As a nervous passenger I was equally nervous when I began my lessons but Adam made me feel very at ease behind the wheel which really helped with both progression and confidence. Everything is explained in detail and made very easy to understand and any questions I wanted to ask were answered as well.

In addition to that Adam is very patient and calming which was comforting during any bad lessons where I made mistakes and he soon builds your confidence back up.

Overall, I was very happy with the lessons, the instructing and the price per lesson too. Highly reccomended!"

"I came to Adam for driving lessons and practiced his tuition in my girlfriends

car as well. He is friendly and informative and very patient. He even let my

girlfriend sit in on lessons so that she could ensure I was doing everything

correctly. His explanations were very clear and he was able to diffuse and

de-stress me if ever I became anxious or frustrated with myself. I would

definitely recommend Adam Smith and would like to thank him again for helping me

pass first time.

Thanks Adam!

"Adam was a brilliant instructor to learn with. I had less than 15 lessons with Adam and passed my test within 8 weeks. My lessons were all very specific towards my individual needs and we worked on my particular weaknesses until we were both confident in that particular area. I would recommend Adam to anyone as I found every lesson very relaxed from the beginning and never felt nervous about going on the roads despite how little experience I had prior to my lessons.

"I had a great time learning to drive with Adam. I was worried that it would turn

into a chore but I looked forward to every lesson, we always had a laugh but

also made visible progress each time which filled me with confidence. It's

almost a shame that I passed!"

"I found Adam through "just Driving" the company he worked for before he went private.

I had had previous bad experiences with my last driving instructor so was rather nervous to meet him.

Straight away Adam made me feel relaxed and happy and put me in the driving seat straight away.

Instead of making me cry when I've done something wrong, he's made me laugh and has been, not only

and excellent driving instructor but a really good friend. His lessons are fun, informative and never a

waste of time. He lets you decide what you want to work on so you feel like you're getting your moneys

worth and helps to give you more confidence within driving.

He has given me a passion for driving and has somehow taken me from not having a clue to having a

PINK driving licence in my purse!!

I cannot recommend Adam enough, thank you so much Adam!

You and your awful jokes and stories will be missed (A LOT)

"Adam gives you the chance to develop your skills in a safe, calm and sociable environment. Everything you do is at your own comfortablepace and you’re not forced to do anything you don’t feel 100% ready for. People sometimes have this perception, that driving instructors want to keep you in the car as long as possible to generate profit. With Adam this wasn’t the case, the first thing he asked me was “what is your target test day”. He then advised me this was realistic and his experience meant he got me ready for the target date and I PASSED MY TEST FIRT TIME! One of Adams key qualities is that he has many customers but treats each one individually. He never forgets what you did the previous lesson as he has It all documented, this means each lesson you are focusing on your weaknesses rather than areas you already feel comfortable in. This teaching method means you get full value for money as each lesson you are learning new skills. Adams high professionalism meant he was always on time for lessons, and kept you fully updated for your next appointment. Overall I enjoyed Adams calm nature and his sense of humour as he aIways had a story or two that would keep youentertained. I would like to take this time to Thank Adam for helping me pass my test first time!! I would RECOMMEND Adam to any one what ever your driving experience is. Not only a driving instructor but also a full time LEGEND J.

"Adam is an excellent, reliable instructor who made me feel at ease and comfortable in every session. His lessons are enjoyable and I looked forward to learning...rather than dreading it.

I had been learning to drive with other instructors previously and felt like I wasn't progressing. Adam definitely changed this and gave me the skills and confidence I needed to then pass my test.

I would recommend learning to drive with him to anyone. Thanks

"“ Following lessons with other instructors ( unsuccessfully) and with a dent in my confidence as a result, a friend of mine recommended Adam. What struck me about Adam from the first lesson was his professional yet easy demeanour and patient teaching style. In the past I had encountered instructors who tried to rush me in my learning, chastised me when making errors and expected that following one demonstration I would be able to competently complete manoeuvres, adding unnecessary pressure. With Adam any manoeuvre was repeated as many times as I needed to without judgement or impatience and errors were reflected on and discussed calmly to highlight what could have been done better.

At the beginning of each lesson feedback was given to me on my last drive and the learning objectives of the next lesson were discussed, helping me keep on track with my progress and areas for improvement. This could all be provided to me via email should I have wished to maintain a record, something which I had not encountered elsewhere and found a really helpful tool.

Nothing was too much trouble for Adam in the course of my lessons, he provided everything I needed to be able to pass my test first time ( psychologically and practically) and gave me the confidence to do so. I will be recommending him going forward to any learners out there who want a professional and enjoyable learning experience which gets results.”

"Adam was approachable and easy to get along with. I found it easy to explain any issues I had with him and we discussed ways we could improve together. In the beginning Adam made me feel comfortable in the car, as I was nervous and I felt able to not make mistakes when I initially began lessons. I found arranging lessons with Adam very easy and he was very flexible with his times and where he picked me up and dropped me off. Adam was very good at understanding my rate of development and knowing what I was capable of and how best to improve things I wasn’t as good at.

pass my test before my first baby comes along. You got me to that point with a

lot of care and a brilliant amount of patience, and I didn't realise how much I

would enjoy it, too. Things will be much easier for my little family now, and we

Adam has been the best driving instructor i have had, he was very calm and very reassuring and made driving a joy able experience as before i entered the car i was a nervous wreck but an hour with Adam and i was as cool as a cucumber after my first lesson he sat me down and we worked out a scheduled plan on what we would get done over a period of weeks and we did exactly that. I believe Adam to be the best teacher you could have in an instructor as Adam comes up with all kinds of fresh ideas when it comes to learning all the maneuvers which helps everyone's learning style and ability to drive he keeps all of his students safe and always knows how to keep his students from getting too stressed out on what can be some of the most stressful times of life driving.

I would just like to finish this email by thanking Adam so much for helping learn to drive his teaching method tout me to learn to drive in a matter of lessons and before i knew it i was on the road with a shiny pink license he give me the confidence to never give up and to always keep my eye on what i want in life and at the time this is what i wanted so thank you so much Adam yo have changed my life for the better now i have passed and i look forward to seeing you on my pass plus scheme.

Cheers Christopher."

""Thanks for everything Adam, you were a fantastic teacher. From the very beginning you made me feel extremely comfortable and allowed me to learn at my own pace. I always appreciated you asking me at the start of every lesson if there were any aspects of driving which I was less confident with and then tailoring each lesson to pay specific attention and allow me to improve on these.

What I think was perhaps most important was that you were always patient and never got frustrated with me, even when I did with myself which was far too often! Thanks again, I shall be sure to recommend you to any of my friends who are wanting to learn to drive, if you could get me to a stage where I felt confident enough to pass then I’m sure you can do the same for anyone!"

"Adam Smith – probably one of the best instructors in the area. Adam taught my daughter to drive from scratch and he was always professional, patient and put Charlotte at ease. Above all Adam is great at making beginners feel confident and bringing out their best. He was always available to answer questions even if it was late in the evening and we always felt that he put 100% into his job and nothing was too much trouble. I would recommend Adam to anybody wanting to learn to drive – you will be in safe hands.
