The best instructor around! Passed on the first attempt thanks to Chris’ teaching! I have been with Chris from the start, very nice and easy to talk to! Highly recommended for anyone!

**Without doubt the best driving instructor I have ever had, and I have had a lot of them!**
For 11 years I have been learning to drive on and off. And failed twice. I've been from county to county and from big organisations to private institutors. You would have thought all that experience was a good thing, right? Well, no, not really. I had picked up a lot of bad habits and had had my confidence ripped to shreds by instructors that think driving is like ruling an army. Then I met Chris, and what an instructor he is and what a guy too!
His teaching is very clear, but firm. Not once did I do something wrong that, after hearing his explanation, felt was an incorrect call. He didn't panic or scare me either when he had to push me. He was also very good at bantering, but then allowing moments of quiet to present themselves when focus was necessary.
He structured each lesson to focus on areas of weakness and gave a brief overview of the topic to be covered. Certain manoeuvres he will give some pointers on technique and methodology, but won't be overly critical on how it is done, as he focuses on feeling the drive and being more in tune with the car and your surroundings. But, don't get me wrong, if those checks aren't being done or your speed or road positioning is wrong then you will know about it! But, he doesn't do it in temper, but instead with a calm tone as a reminder. But, he will be persistent until it sinks in. All in all, he is the perfect instructor: friendly, informative and professional. Whilst making the drive natural and non-robotic. He takes his profession very seriously and you can tell he has a lot of passion. I truly feel that if I had been with Chris from the start I would have passed a lot sooner and would not have had to fix incorrect habits.

I was very nervous to start lessons but Chris made me feel at ease straight away. I passed my test first time with Chris’ help. Would 100% recommend and I have done several times already! Brilliant instructor! Thanks Chris!

Best driving instructor in Nottingham! I was really nervous to start driving but Chris immediately makes you feel comfortable with all aspects of driving from using gears and navigating roads to dealing with other road users and other aspects of learning to drive. Really couldn't recommend him enough!
