Instructor Review Michelle Farrugia DRIVING INSTRUCTOR: Tony D

"Learning to drive didn't come easily to me, I had no confidence that I could do it and was extremely nervous but Tony from DLA believed in me! he was firm but fair and when things got a bit much he would pull me over somewhere quiet and we'd talk about what was going wrong and when I was ready we'd go again. Tony taught me to focus on the positives and what had gone well during my lesson rather than dwell on my mistakes. If it weren't for Tony, I think I'd have given up, I got there in the end and am becoming more and more confident, Thank you Tony, I would highly recommend."

Instructor Review Jana Le DRIVING INSTRUCTOR: Rob

"Rob has been the high-satisfactory instructor I could possibly ask for. He's very fluent and precise in communication, and the absolute confidence of the quality of the training became a key part of me passing. He's very patient whilst errors have been made by me and usually tells me different ways to approaches on the way to enhance and now no longer make errors. Not only that, he's a good person to have a laugh with at instances, but he can be very serious at times. Overall, he was really determined to make sure I passed and get the best results I could possibly get in the space of very little amount of time. And I did pass! :)"

Instructor Review Mandla Bandama DRIVING INSTRUCTOR: Safi

"Safi was recommended to me by a friend. I was told that he was a good teacher, patient, very knowledgeable and makes you feel comfortable at the wheel. All of which were true! I thoroughly enjoyed all my lessons with Safi - I was particularly impressed with how he simplified the whole process of understanding a vehicle and all the components of driving. Within the space of around 2 months, my confidence on the road shot up drastically all thanks to him and I was able to pass my test, first time, after 26 hours of lessons in total. I'd recommend Safi to anyone who wants to learn how to drive."

Instructor Review Jonathon Hill DRIVING INSTRUCTOR: Rob Irwin

"I've had other driving instructors in the past but Rob has been by far the best. His teaching is second to none with great knowledge of the roads, driving systems and thought processes which he passes to you in such a calm and clear way. Every lesson was carried out in a relaxed way with good conversation to help calm any nerves. No doubt he is the reason for passing my test and feeling confident on the roads. Thanks Rob and DLA!"

Instructor Review Aarcha Khan DRIVING INSTRUCTOR: Eddie O'Brien

"No words can describe the level of patience and guidance Eddie had shown towards me. I was able to pass my test in the 1st attempt all due to his sincere efforts in making me a good driver. Every little details will be worked upon and all the little advices from him will surely go a long way. I would highly recommend new learners to ask for Eddie. THE BEST."

Instructor Review Jack Woodward DRIVING INSTRUCTOR: Christian Bishop

"I learnt with Christian bishop and I'm over the moon that I passed 1 time. Starting with a total lack of confidence in my driving ability from my first lesson to passing 2 months later was only possible due to his commitment and teaching ability. There where never any awkward silences or dull moments whilst learning which made the process even more enjoyable. I would definitely recommend DLA driving school to anyone wanting to learn to drive."

Instructor Review Sophie DRIVING INSTRUCTOR: Darren Adams

"Darren taught me with a very friendly yet professional approach! He was always on time, patient and understanding. Would highly recommended to anyone learning! Darren helped build my confidence and support me through out the whole learning process! THANK YOU!!"
