    positive review  Highly recommend Rob, after many attempts to drive 20 plus years ago I wasn't sure I wanted to try again! Rob put me at ease and helped me gain my confidence, I started to think I can do this and I did. Thank you Rob for all your patience and perseverance with me. Will be signing up to do my Plus Pass in a few months time with Rob. For now it's happy driving all thanks to County Driver Training

    positive review  Excellent driving instructor, patient and very explanatory, made things easy to understand, and made learning to drive a really positive experience, for someone who was extremely anxious.
    Prior to Rob, id had several instructors and I just never felt as confident in my ability before. For anyone looking to learn to drive, I’d strongly recommend rob.

    positive review  I honestly can’t thank Rob enough for helping me pass my test after a week’s intensive course. I’ve previously had lessons in both a manual and an automatic before booking with Rob and he is by far the best instructor I’ve had. He gave me the confidence I needed to believe I could do it.. and I did! Such a lovely, kind and understanding man who allowed me to fit my course in perfectly around my kids school hours. Thank you so much, I will be recommending County Driver Training to everyone!!! 😊😊😊

    I passed my test on the first attempt last week! I would highly recommend Rob to learn how to drive. He was very patient and made me feel at ease from the first lesson as I was very nervous at first. I felt like every lesson I learnt something new and keeping a log of my progress was a good incentive to improve. If you are looking to learn how to drive Rob should be you're first choice.
