"Mike is THE best driving instructor! He is a down to earth, friendly character that made learning to drive as easy and as comfortable as possible. Thanks to his knowledge and expertise in driving i was able to pass both my theory and practical tests first time! Mike builds his lessons on the areas that you need to do most work on and wont rush you to move on until you're 100% comfortable with that area. Not to mention the various teaching methods he has, such as using the ipad, which brings a visual way of learning to his lessons.
Over all, Mike is a bubbly person with a good sense of humour which makes learning to drive enjoyable and easy! I would definitely recommend him."
"Mike is a great instructor. He is very easy to get along with and has a great knowledge of everything you need to be able to pass your test. He always makes sure you go away with a new skill after each lesson which helps to build your confidence. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a driving instructor."
"Just want to say a big thank you for helping me pass my test. I couldn't have asked for a better Instructor you were so supportive, patient and made me feel at ease from the first lesson. I will definitely be recommending you to anyone looking for driving lessons. Thanks again mike you’re a star."
"Thank you for all your help along the road to passing my driving test. I know I wasn’t the easiest of pupils but with your help and experience I got there in the end, and have now finally got my independence.
I love driving, it’s the best thing I have ever done and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate what you did for me, I just can’t thank you enough."

If you want focused help based on what you need then definitely sign up with Mike, he'll improve the skills you need in an easy and low pressure way."
"Mike Smith is a fantastic driving instructor and I passed my driving test first time. When I first started learning to drive I didn't have any confidence in myself at all and Mike helped me through everything I doubted myself in (which was a LOT of things). Mike explains everything very well and even uses diagrams to help you understand things such as manoeuvres, cross roads, roundabouts etc. Also, he covers everything you need to know to get you through your theory and practical test. If I did not understand something I was never scared to ask Mike to explain it to me for a second time.
Mike encourages you to practice everything until it is perfect and makes driving lessons very fun and enjoyable. Mike is extremely patient and is very easy to get along with. I would highly recommend Mike as an instructor as he is very experienced, supportive, reliable, professional, friendly and never cuts driving lessons short.
He is an A* instructor. Thanks Mike!"
"After three failed tests and a seven year break from learning to drive, I came across Mike. I was extremely nervous on my first lesson as it had been so long but Mike immediately put me at ease. He was very calm and re assuring.
He is very down to earth and easy to talk to. Mike helped build my confidence, going over things until I had it 100%, never made me feel stupid or silly If I didn't 'get it' right away like other instructors in the past had done. His little funny anecdotes helped me remember things and I still have them in mind whilst driving today!
I passed my test in July 2011, all thanks to Mike Smith!"
"Mike is a very patient, understanding and encouraging instructor. I was really nervous to start driving, leaving it until pretty late on in life to finally take the plunge and learn. But Mike took it at a pace that was great for me, through instruction and visual aids (the iPad demos were great!) and built up my confidence to where I felt ready to take my test and pass! The car is lovely, new and always immaculate. A joy to learn in. I'd recommend Mike to anybody - young or old, male or female."
"Mike is a fantastic driving instructor. Thanks to him I passed both my theory and practical tests first time! He is confident, calm and reassuring. He also built his lessons on the areas that needed most work. meaning when the date came up for my test. I certainly felt ready. He showed diagrams to improve my knowledge on road markings, layout and manoeuvres and if I didn't understand something he would always provide the answer.
All in all Mike is friendly, good-humoured and an all-round top bloke! I definitely recommend him."
"I recommend mike smith as a driving instructor, he’s excellent. He never raises his voice if you make a mistake and makes sure that you’re able to overcome any problems in no time. He always lets you know how you’re getting on and what areas he thinks you can improve upon. He is also very friendly and makes learning to drive fun and easy. He made sure with each lesson I had, that I would achieve something whether it was manoeuvres, junctions, traffic lights etc and would not give up on me until that goal was achieved."

I have really enjoyed having Mike teach me throughout the year, he is a lovely and friendly man who I got on with so well as soon as I got in the car on my first ever lesson.
Having Mike as my instructor has been a great pleasure, his lessons taught me so much, it brought me confidence to pass my test first time round and for that I thank him . I couldn't have chosen a better instructor than Mike - he is a top man."
