"I booked a few refresher lessons with Gavin after not having driven much since passing my test 7 years ago!
I would highly recommend him; he has been so calm and patient (and has made me laugh!) whilst teaching me where I am going wrong with my driving and how I can improve. What more could you need!"

"Gavin is a great driving instructor. I first heard about Gavin when he was handing out leaflets at The Meads, what stuck out in my mind from this first encounter was after picking up a business card from him, he seemed genuine in his desire to help us and offer his assistance in any way he could with regards to learning how to drive.
I decided to change to Gavin after going with another driving instructor, who I felt was more nervous than I was on my driving lessons, and was telling me what to do while in the car, but not telling me the reasons why I am doing what I am doing. After several lessons with my first instructor and not seeing any progress, I decided that I needed a change. So, I decided to give Gavin a call, on my first lesson with him, I felt like I had learnt almost nothing in my previous lessons with my previous instructor, and thus felt like I wasted money and time. Gavin not only tells you what to do, but more importantly tells you why you are doing it, so I finally understood why the car stalled, something that my previous instructor never explained to me.
Gavin's prices may be slightly higher than some, but not all, but it is definitely better value for money because you are being taught by someone who appears to be very passionate about his job and wanting us to succeed. He doesn't just teach us how to pass the test but how to drive for life. Giving scenarios that we may encounter in our daily life as a licensed driver.
I know I may not have been the easiest of students, but Gavin was still as patient as ever. Thank you, Gavin, for all your patience and hard work."

Gavin is a fantastic instructor. There was rarely a moment of uncertainty during the lessons as everything was explained clearly and if I were ever unsure he would always show me how to do things correctly.
As well as a great teacher, Gavin's always a good laugh during lessons which could help any learners who might be feeling nervous about driving.
I'd recommend learning with Gavin to anyone. He's helped me and many others pass their test first time, however he doesn't just teach you how to pass the practical test; he will ensure that your attitude to driving is the correct attitude and the decisions you will make during driving are the right ones. Cheers for everything :)

Gavin was such a good teacher. He structured all my lessons to concentrate on particular aspects of driving until I was really confident in them. We had such a good laugh and I eventually got him to like my music!!! Unfortunately I never got used to his terrible jokes!
I would recommend him to anybody, especially if they struggled like me. Just so I won’t miss him too much I am going to take his Pass Plus course in the New Year!

I couldn't have asked for more from my learning to drive experience, and it's all thanks to Gavin. I was somebody who previously hated driving, but his contagious enthusiasm for it made it an unexpectedly enjoyable experience. Having previously given up on my lessons with a previous instructor due to lack of confidence and understanding in my drive, Gavin found imaginative ways to help me understand why and how I was doing what I was doing in a car and on the roads. Gavin doesn't just teach you how to pass a driving test, he teaches you how to drive! Each lesson I was given clear guidance and a road map towards my success. He fairly sounds out when you are ready for your test (not stringing you along for extra expense like some instructors!) and in regards to your lesson plans: he is in the driving seat, but you are steering the wheel (excuse the pun) as he will plan out the necessary steps for your learning, but from lesson to lesson listens out for what you would like to learn or practice next. In me passing first time, Southwest trains lost a lot of business and the road gained another safe driver, all thanks to Gav!!
