I Started with Richard Beavan on the Tuesday and finished on the Friday.
Although I failed my driving test, Richard was a very good instructor with a lot of skills and knowledge. He is my second instructor I have had and certainly the best one. I feel the value for money was only satisfactory due to Richard having an old boxy, noisy Kia Picanto. I feel that if you pay £695 for a 24 hour course, its better to learn in a nice new car, like the other franchises offer. Other than price, I think the service and quality were okay.
I just wanted to say a big thanks to oneweekdriving school and Lee Whitehead. Excellent support and lessons were provided.
I took a 30h one-week driving course at the beginning of March and I must say it has been a really great experience overall. The service provided was excellent, good communication from the team, everything was clear and all set. All I had to do was to get ready for the theory test and sit in the car for the course and the practical test at the end of it.
My instructor, Paddy Tyler, has been amazing. A great man, very friendly and funny (lame jokes at time though!) and patient since the course was very tiring and challenging at times. I would recommend him big time, he's a super instructor and a very lovable person.
Oh, and I passed first time by the way ;-). Not too bad for a Frenchie!
A big huge thanks to all the team at one week for helping me, quality service and excellent value for money, , another big huge thanks to michelle rosen my instructor who's patience and understanding got me through my test, , thank you all, ,.
Thought I was going to struggle on this course before I started but thanks to my instructor's methods and clear explanations I found it all easy to learn and picked everything up quickly, he kept me going in the right direction the whole time reassuring me when I found it hard and making me persevere for a first time pass!! Thank you Adrian.
I booked up for the 7 day intensive course having had no driving experience whatsoever. My instructor, Garry Lester, was patient and really helped me feel at ease and confident in my own abilities. I would recommend the course to anyone and must extend a big thank you to Garry!
I took the one week driving course with Garry Lester. I was a little nervous about driving but Garry was very calm and a great instructor. I passed at the end of the week and was over the moon. I would recommend this course to anyone as the intensive lessons allow you to learn and repeat manoeuvres in one block and I felt this was better than spaced out lessons. Thank you Garry.
"As stated, this intensive driving course was particularly intense! Very challenging at times and tiring, my Instructor Paddy Tyler made it as smooth as it could have been and fitted it to my pace. A big thank you to Paddy who is also a very nice chap!
I would definately recommend this intensive driving course to anyone, and would also recommend Paddy as an instructor. Professionalism but good laughs guaranteed! Even though Paddy owns a fair number of crap jokes!"
Paddy is a great instructor, he has great teaching methods and he's very patient. He helped me go from not being at all confident the morning of my first lesson to feeling like I was ready for my test on the third day
I had a fantastic 5 day intensive course with Instructor Shahran Chowdhury. The course was definitely Intensive and a little testing at times but Shahran understood all my needs and pinpointed all my bad habits straight away enabling me to pass my Driving test First time!! He listened to all my concerns and helped to boost my confidence massively! I can't thank Shahran enough.....THANK YOU!! I would more than recommend the intensive course to anyone who wants to start driving in the very near future....5 star service!!

Having some previous experiance of driving from some time ago, I opted to go for the 4 day course consisting of 24 hours of driving. The course fees covered not only the 24 hours behind the wheel but also the cost of the theory and the practical, which removed the hassle of arranging it myself. I felt the communication was excellent throughout, once i'd paid for the course, within 24 hours I had received a welcome email, had a date confirmed for my theory test and had been assigned an instructor. Very efficient and stress free.
Also within that time my instructor, Kelvin, had also contacted me. Kelvin's teaching method was fantastic, assuring and positive when you got it right, constructive and supportive when you didn't. Kelvin's approach was very modern, allowing you to develop your own driving style whilst meeting and exceeding all the required standards rather than trying to shoe horn you into a style you are not familiar or comfortable with. This from a personal point of view greatly enhanced the experiance for me. Kelvin's methods are successful ones, as he challenges you to reach such high levels of driving ability that even when you think your struggling, your still above the required standard. My practical test was a prime example of this. I felt the test was not going as well as my practice runs on the day and wasn't sure i'd been good enough, but I passed with 7 minors.
Aside from being a great instructor, Kelvin is a very approachable and nice person and I would recommend his services to anybody.
Thanks again Kelvin.
All the best for the future.
See you on the open roads!
