Zairai is the best instructor  

Zairai Safi's teaching is amazing. I liked he told me precisely what, how, and when to do some movements during driving in a calm manner. I just followed his advice throughout the test and passed the practical test today straightforwardly. I think his advice would help anyone to drive safely.

Zairai Safi's teaching is amazing. I liked he told me precisely what, how, and when to do some movements during driving in a calm manner. I just followed his advice throughout the test and passed the practical test today straightforwardly. I think his advice would help anyone to drive safely. These techniques he teaches are a treasure that you can appreciate throughout your life. He also can teach both automatic and manual, and I changed from manual to automatic based on his advice (I have wanted to do so but I couldn't, because not many instructors own both types of car like him). I am glad I did so. Thanks so much Zairai!

Would Recommend  

I had a great learning experience with my instructor Behzad and just passed my test first time. I always felt at ease driving with him as he always remained calm and explained things thoroughly. He was very kind and patient and I have recommended him to two friends of mine.

Safi  

Safi is simply a brilliant instructor. Relaxed, confident in his own skill which makes him a nonjudgemental instructor that puts you at ease even when you make mistakes. He adapts and tailors his method of teaching according to your personality type and best learning method. On top of all that, he is a fun guy. I had a blast Driving around Cambridge with him. It is also worth mentioning that he has a really cool car.

An amazing instructor!  

Zairai Safi is an amazing driving instructor! His calm personality and good humor makes you feel at ease immediately in his lessons. He is great at explaining situations and ensuring that you understand what he is teaching. With his guidance I was able to pass my test on the first try. I highly recommend him!

I had an test before I met Safi. I was confident but got several “dangerous” in the test. Safi was recommended by a friend. In the first lesson, I realized I was not ready for a test at all.

Safi pointed out so many mistakes that my previous instructor did not mentioned. Safi would also help me to analyse why I had mistake. I thought making mistakes meant you needed more practice. Safi let me know it’s not always the case. Sometimes, it’s because I don’t fully understand the rule. Sometimes, it’s because I misjudge a certain thing. His teaching is very clear and efficient. I have recommended him to many friends.

Best Learning Experience  

Great method of teaching. Straight to the point. Great explanation, and also great chats.

Cambridge   
Absolutely brilliant driving instructor  

When I first started out driving with Safi I was nervous. That quickly went away because he explains things well and gives you confidence. He also helped me become consistent with every aspect of driving. Overall top driving instructor and would highly recommend Safi to teach you. Also I passed first time. Safi is a legend!

Safi  

Safi makes you comfortable and boosts your self confidence with his positive energy, which if you ask me is the most important factor of learning to drive. I had the best experience with him as he was strict when he needed to be and understanding at the most simple mistake you can make "you are human" is his classic phrase 🙂 Thank you again

Paul is brilliant  

Thank you so much Paul for being such a great instructor. Being always calm and patient toward mistakes, Paul makes a real driver out of you. I couldn't pass the first time without his informative lessons.

Mr Zairai Safi was my driving instructor. These are my top 3 reasons why I do consider him to be a great teacher:

1)He believes that anyone can learn. During my trial lesson, I have instantly realised that Mr Safi can help me to overcome pre-existing driving anxieties and rediscover my abilities.

2)He profoundly knows his content and offers his lessons in modern, spacious car that is equipped with semi-autonomous systems. Every lesson was a priceless driving experience which made me not only to pass my practical test but also to become a safe driver.

3)He communicates extremely clearly. His use of advisory criticism was firm and constructive at all times but never condescending or belittling.

I am tremendously grateful to Mr Safi for making the whole process a true joy.

Linda Morley  

Linda is very friendly, reliable and a great driving instructor. She took me from a complete beginner to passing both theory and practical test in 6 months. Thanks Linda!

Great!  

Mr Maiwand Safi was a great teacher. He is very good at building your confidence while pointing out where improvements can be made with your driving. I also found the exam preparation - with sat nav, practising test routes and mock exams - very useful. I can highly recommend him as a teacher.

Excellent instructor - Maiwand Safi  

I would like to thank maiwand safi for his amazing support and guidance which helped me to get through the license. He has good knowledge,dedicated and is very patient . In addition, he always goes an extra mile to make the candidate pass the test. I would stongly reommend him to anyone who really want to pass the test within a short span of time. Thank you safi

He assesses the student in the 1st class and adjusts his lessons based on the skills of the student. Totally fun learning with him by the side. He even lets you drive on our own and then shows/tells the mistakes we did which then is easy to absorb and keep in mind. He is very patient and would even crack jokes if he feels we are tensed behind the wheel. Doesn't waste time and the student's money!! His methods and techniques used for instructions are the best!! Cheers to you Safi Bhai and a Big Thanks!!

Safi is brilliant - I could have asked for more from a driving instructor. He is flexible with lesson timings, explains everything so clearly and practically and all with a great sense of humour, making driving fun! He really gave me the confidence to drive and I can’t recommend him enough!

SAFI is the best instructor ever , I was just absolute beginner and now I can drive on highway and anywhere confidently in just a few hours of lessons. Safi doesn't waste time, of course.

Safi’s the best!  

Safi is such a good teacher I was ever so slightly sad that I passed my test first time round because it meant we wouldn’t have any more lessons together. Infinitely patient with a brilliant sense of humour and great at explaining everything. Ladies and gentlemen we got it! Thanks Safi!

I openly encourage to try Drive away if you have been struggling to learn and if get Erkan as an instructor always remember that it's the driving you encounter outside of the test that really matters.
(Also could mention this review if you get him? I think he would find it funny)

Erkan is an excellent instructor. He will help you not only pass the test but become a good driver. His instruction to ‘talk to the road’ is very helpful. Each lesson will be valuable addition to your skills.

Adam was amazing.  

I had a real fear of driving after having been in accidents when I was younger and a really bad experience with my first driving test. However, Adam put me at ease almost instantly. The progress that I made during our lessons was nothing short of a miracle. I have just passed my test and there is no doubt that it is due to Adam's brilliant style of teaching. Thank you for everything!

When I started driving with Shelash, it immediately became clear to me what a huge difference a good driving instructor can make. I realised that I wasn't scared of driving with an instructor who is super-descriptive, patient, friendly and empathetic. Shelash has put me at ease from the very beginning and explained driving, rules, hazards and useful tip in a logical way that made absolute sense. He would correct and explain mistakes in a way that was constructive, which was extremely important to me.
I rate him extremely high as an instructor and I highly recommend him. It has been an absolute joy learning from him and he is very funny and entertaining too so none of the lessons were dull, and I was actually looking forward to them.

Brilliant service  

Adam was a patient and friendly instructor who helped me adapt to UK driving and feel confident on the roads. Would highly recommend him!

I highly recommend Safi as instructor.
Very easy, kind, patient and above all is supportive.
He knows exactly what he is doing. I passed my test from the 1st time and I wouldn’t have done it without his encouragement. My time was very tight. He told me how many lessons will I need immediately.
Most importantly he is very punctual.

Behzad is an amazing instructer. He let's you do the one thing most other instructers don't do enough of, and that is to actually drive! He let's you know all the required tricks and tips for the exam routes and will allow you to get rid of bad habits. A splendid teacher indeed!

I passed my practical test on my first attempt with no previous driving experience. We always started each lesson by identifying if there was anything I wanted extra practice with.

Jenny    Cambridge   

I passed my practical test on my first attempt with no previous driving experience. We always started each lesson by identifying if there was anything I wanted extra practice with. With each lesson I felt that I was learning a new skill and not wasting any time. Erkan was excellent in teaching my how to be a safe driver. Not only was Erkan patient, but he was also willing to add on additional time to make sure we covered any areas I was weak on. For example, if I had driven badly on a roundabout with my husband the day before, he took the initiative to ask me which roundabout that was and at the end of my lesson asked if I was happy to finish the lesson late so that we could practice there so he could identify where I could improve. I don't normally leave reviews but it is the least I could do considering how much extra time Erkan has added onto my lessons out of his own good will. He is a truly dedicated driving instructor.

Good instructions, relaxed lessons, and passed on first try!  

I had driving lessons with Behzad (a friend recommended him). I passed my theory exam about halfway through my practical lessons on the first attempt, and after just over 20 hours of driving lessons, I passed my practical exam also on the first try.

I found the lessons with Behzad relaxed, fun, and useful. I did do quite a lot of driving in between lessons with my partner which I think helped a lot too. So overall it was a

I found the lessons with Behzad relaxed, fun, and useful. I did do quite a lot of driving in between lessons with my partner which I think helped a lot too. So overall it was a combination of taking the lessons and theory seriously, good instructions/lessons by Behzad, and driving in my own time between lessons that made me pass both tests on the first attempt. I would highly recommend Behzad.

Adam Fuller is amazing  

I went through several unhelpful and downright unpleasant instructors, before finally finding Adam. He makes you learn things properly, instead of using some silly trick that only works 90% of the time. He never got cross and was instead patient and kind with my frayed nerves. I passed first time. I now recommend him to anyone and everyone.

Despite being an older learner I passed first time with Erkan after less than 3 months of lessons. He was great at getting me into situations I could learn from, and very clear about the points that I needed to understand. Driving time during each lesson was maximised and I came out of every lesson having learned new things - he is very strong on going into the details of what could be improved and exactly how to observe and control the vehicle better. Erkan is passionate about teaching you to his standard - not just to pass the test - but as he focuses his lessons on the test area I went into the big day feeling as well-prepared as I could be.
Life is busy, and you have to wait a long time for a test in Cambridge, so passing first time is relief - Many thanks Erkan!

** Safi is an excellent instructor **  

Safi is a very knowledgeable and patient instructor. Together we came up with a plan for lessons and for the practical that worked for me. I am happy to share that I did pass on my first try. I don’t know if I could have done it without Safi’s instruction and support. I highly recommend him!!

Mr. Safi the best instructor ever!  

I've done lessons with other instructors before but no one is like Mr. Safi. He doesn't only tell you what to do but also why you are doing it. He would patiently answer all your questions and help you find your weak spots. I would give 100 stars if this website let me.

Mr Zairai Safi is the best and professional drive instructor I have met. I am very impressed when I made mistakes during the lessons. He never shouted at me but taught me again and again with patience. He is strict to the rules and laws. He wasn't just teaching me the skills of driving but the attitude of how to drive safely and respect other road users. He encouraged me a lot not to give up when I failed the driving tests. He also helped me a lot to find the test slot which is very difficult to book in Cambridge. He woke up 5am in the morning to clean his car and picked me up at 6:45am to the drive test centre. I don't know if other instructors would clean their cars before their students' test. But Zairai's attitude to his job and his student made me so impressed. After all, I won't have the confidence to do the drive test again and eventually get my driving license without his great help. I strongly recommend him to my friends who are looking for a drive instructor.

Very Efficient  

Mr Zairai Safi is very efficient driving instructor. He demonstrates manoeuvres very clearly and guides students very patiently. His guidance helped me to pass the test in first attempt. I strongly recommend Zairai Safi.

Excellent experience!  

My experience with Driveaway was excellent! I had my full license from my home country and had thought I wouldn’t need a lesson to pass the test here. I had already taken the driving test twice and was feeling like it was impossible to pass when I called for a lesson with Zairai Safi. The lessons were great and after two I felt much more prepared and confident. With his help, I passed my driving test! Highly recommend, the instructor’s

Zairai 200% recommended  

Zairai is a very good instructor and I felt he wants his students to be more confident and take the test more prepared. Being international driver, I was only needed to take 6 hours of classes and Zairai did suggest me the needed improvements and he didn’t insist for unnecessary classes.

Flash forward four months and I've got my licence and feel at home behind the wheel. Mr Safi expertly adapts his teaching methods to suit learners of all types and at all levels, making sure that you really understand everything. I work full time and we were always able to arrange lessons to suit me which made the process of learning much less stressful. As a his student I felt supported and cared for, not just 1 of 50 on a very long conveyor belt. His car is fantastic to learn in - very intuitive and with lots of mod-cons that make learning that little bit easier. I cannot recommend Mr Safi enough - I feel like I stuck driving instructor gold!

Safi provides a thorough coaching experience. He is diligent and thoughtful. He is also highly knowledgeable of the licensing system, which was great because I needed to get the practical test taken care of as soon as possible. Within two weeks of contacting Safi I had taken two refresher sessions and passed my practical test. I cannot thank him enough for his attention to detail and insight.

I was quite lucky to have The Safi Brothers (Maiwand and Sadi) as my driving instructors. These are pleasant personalities to learn a driving with; importantly they are fantastic instructors with lots of patience. The true quality of The Safi Brothers is their professionalism and commitment towards their job. They have been very honest with me all the time and I've made a best friends. I would undoubtedly recommend anyone to learn a driving with the The Safi Brothers.

Reflecting on my driving lessons with Mr. Safi, he also taught me some very valuable life lessons which will benefit me for the rest of my life.
His positivity is infectious, his strong sense of conscientiousness and his sense of humour made each every lesson fun and time went by fast.
I passed my driving test first time after 40 hours practice, and it was NOT luck, it was the right way of learning from the best and hard work.

I am writing this review for my instructor in Cambridge Mr Behzad Yusufi. Behzad is a very friendly, calm and gentleperson to talk to if you have questions of driving, which actually helped me a lot to improve. He is an excellent and patient instructor. He is easy to understand, follow, and most importantly, open to suggestions and feedback.

I learned driving in Southampton; however, I could not take the test in Southampton because I had to move Cambridge because of my new job. Cambridge was new for me so was the roads and routes. The roads here are the narrower and lots of cyclists and pedestrian compared to Southampton. I asked my previous driving school to provide me a new instructor. They provided me the instructor. The instructor talked to me very politely in the beginning, however he started shouting and playing a psychological game with me. My driving suffered a lot and it became worst from good. Although I was driving very well in the beginning in Cambridge. He deliberately did not take me to the test routes in Cambridge. As a result, I failed my first driving test in Cambridge, with one dangerous, one severe and four minor faults. His behaviour changed and I lost my confidence. He was more interested in making money rather than helping me pass my test. I had no option but to change my instructor.

I came to Mr Behzad Yusufi and Mr Zairai Safi through a referral. Moreover, both of them rescued me. It was smooth sailing and I passed my driving test after few lessons, they helped me to build my confidence and corrected the mistakes I was doing. Although Zairai Safi was not my instructor but he joined us couple of time for the mock test. His suggestion and tips worked wonderfully. Mr Behzad worked with me patiently. Both Mr Behzad Yusufi and Mr Zairai Safi deserves thanks and accolades for their professionalism. I just want to say thanks to both of you. I highly recommend Mr Behzad if you are looking for a manual instructor.

Thanks.

If you make a mistake, he doesn’t want that mistake to form a habit, so he’ll encourage you to try again and again until you can do it well.

Every lesson I made progress with Erkan, he’s a very advanced instructor. And he’s also one of the warmest, most passionate people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting - a genuine nice guy who loves his job, how rare is that in the world today. He will be firm with you at times, but you will thank him for that later. I passed with Erkan, and I’m thankful for both the driving wisdom and the life wisdom Erkan imparted during my time with him. Top top guy.

What a fantastic instructor. Very friendly, reliable and encouraging. He is very balanced in his approach and manages to be kind but firm. He keeps his instructions clear and concise and doesn't rest till the job is properly done. The added bonus is he does it all in a very cheerful way.

Having moved on from a previous instructor I had my concerns about the process of learning to drive, but I could not have found a more accommodating, understanding, friendly and kind instructor than Jonathan! He allowed me to determine the lesson if I was having an anxious day, all the while supporting me in every step and making sure I felt relaxed, safe and confident. He encouraged me to do my best when he knew I was capable, and always believed in my abilities. I went from being pretty scared of driving to absolutely loving being out on the road! Not only was Jonathon an excellent instructor who explained everything with simplicity and clarity, he was also great company and a good laugh! I highly recommend him to anyone of any age who's seeking lessons!
Thank you for everything!

Best driving instructor in town- Erkan!

I met Erkan after moving to Cambridge, and having failed a driving test in a different city after many hours of lessons. And I absolutely regret not finding him sooner!
He is a highly competent and efficient teacher, who is passionate about his job and fully committed to the cause of making you a safe driver. Erkan can come across as a firm taskmaster when it comes to rules of the road, and with good reason- road safety is no joking matter. But he is the biggest motivator and guide who will ensure you improve with every lesson. He was very flexible around my work schedule as a doctor, which was a big factor for me!
He does not focus on just the driving test (which was all my previous instructor cared about), but on your personal growth as a safe and reliable driver. I have now passed my test with flying colours, but more importantly, I feel completely confident in the lifetime of driving that follows! And thst is a testament to his brilliance. For anyone reading this review- look no further- Erkan comes highly recommended!

Paul is really a nice and experienced instructor. With his instruction, I passed my practical test on my first try.

Zairai Safi- great, professional instructor  

Hi. I passed my exam first time. :))Safi was exceptionally professional but also really friendly and approachable. He takes pride in his job and makes sure he does everything possible for everyone to pass the test - which not all the instructors do. 🙂 Great experience. Definitely worth recommending!

Hi.
Today I passed my driving test with the help of the efforts being put by Erkan.
Few things about Erkan,he is straightforward,hard working guy.He tells you your deficiencies,and tries to correct them.
He not only teach you how to pass the exam but to be a safe driver on the roads.
If you really wants to pass,concentrate on what he tells you.His words are valuable.
I wish all of you good luck and have trust and patience with him.

I would totally recommend Paul  

My friends had recommended Paul as a very good drivers instructor. I had never driven in this country before and I was very afraid of driving in the left side of the road. Paul went through all the basics and would add more complex things as I would progress. I felt very confident for my exam, as I could remember all his recommendations along the way. I would totally recommend Paul, he has great experience as a driver instructor.

Excellent experience  

Shelash is a very responsible instructor who teaches driving by motivating students to think about the rationale behind each manoeuver. With his help I am able to quickly follow the highway code and overcome some harmful driving habits. I am able to pass the practical test in my first attempt and the overall learning experience is wonderful.

Review for preparation for exam  

During my lessons with Shelash, it was very fun and helpful. He was able to give advice and tips with the problems I had when I was driving, made quick improvements as soon as possible just before my exam.

Behzad  

I enjoyed learning to drive with Behzad and he helped me to pass first time.

I wasn't particularly confident at first but Behzad struck a good balance between being patient but also pushing me each lesson to ensure I made progress.

I felt I learned something after each session and the time was always well spent. I'd certainly recommend Behzad.

Erkan, super highly recommended instructor  

Sincerely appreciate Erkan’s driving lessons. The way he instructed me was very practical and useful. He pointed out my weakness and effectively helped me to correct them. By learning with Erkan, my confidence and knowledge of driving a manual car on the road built up swiftly. With his great help, I passed my test with just couple of minors in one go! Definitely highly recommend him to everyone (he can do either manual or automatic)! Thanks again Erkan!!!

I cannot say enough good things about him as an instructor and as a person. I will be recommending him to all my friends, and if you are lucky enough to get him as an instructor, you will not be disappointed!

Ian taught me well am so grateful  

Best instructor of all! Made me very comfortable helped with my weaknesses and very understanding will miss our weekly lessons thank u soo much!!

Ended up passing with a clean sheet (zero minors) and couldn't be more comfortable on the road. Thanks Erkan!

Zairai Safi: Best-in-class driving instructor

Any driving instructor can teach you the rules of the road or the techniques required to navigate a car but what makes Zairai Safi different is that he builds your confidence and encourages you to develop judgment skills - both extremely important for passing a practical driving test.

Safi does not follow a "one-size-fits-all" training method, he customises his coaching based on the base skill / knowledge levels of each individual learner and he goes out of his way to establish a good rapport with the learner. He will assess you up front and tell you clearly about the amount of training you require.

I did a total of about 10-12 hours of lessons with Safi, spread over a two-week period; on the morning of the practical test I was pretty confident and relaxed and passed the test at my first attempt itself.

I will gladly recommend Safi to anyone who is seeking a driving instructor in Cambridge and surroundings.

For Zairai  

Zairai Safi is really supportive and patient 🙂 instructor. He is very experienced and has a driver specific approach in all our practice sessions. His car is fantastic and fully equipped. I can say I am not an easy case but we did it together! Highly recommend.

Zairi Safi is an AMAZING instructor  

I can't even describe how amazing safi is. Not only did i pss my test first time in less than three weeks, i learned a lot from him about driving safe and feeing more confident on the road. He's very knowledgeable, relaxed and fun to be with. He's very good at conveying information and making it easy for learners to feel confident. I can't thank him enough and would recommend him anyone who is learning to drive.

Funny enough, they didn't took me through the typical test routes, right experience wasn't created. I then connected with Erkan at Driveway School of motoring. He responded the same day and we fixed the time for first session. He did the initial assessment & suggested certain number of classes which aligned with my thinking as well. He did not say the typical sentence "...you would need 30-40 hours classes".

He was very precise in terms of what my gaps are (after an hour assessment drive) and then he suggested how he intends to fill those gaps over the targeted lessons. The lessons build my confidence. He taught me broader basics of driving - not just focussed on passing the test. His standard line was "talk to the roads". I passed my driving test. Excellent instructor. Would recommend him any day. Thanks Erkan!

If you want to pass, you can go with any driving instructor available, but if you want learn how to drive safely and pass, go with Saff (automatic car). He’s fantastic, without him teaching me what he has taught me, I wouldn’t have passed and learned how to be a safe driver. I can’t thank him enough, he’s the best.

Erkan has been an excellent instructor. But he hasn't *just* helped me pass the driving test; he's helped me 'feel the car' and drive with much more control. Erkan has done this by teaching and explaining general techniques, rather than a series of robotic moves, which makes me feel more comfortable when driving in new places. Erkan has helped me to learn how to plan well, and where to look, so that I can anticipate what will happen and react in plenty of time accordingly. I even had the unexpected surprise of noticing that I was now riding my bicycle more safely as a result of this!

Erkan is able to quickly identify your weaknesses and so can tailor the lessons, with your input, accordingly. He has an uncannily good knack at finding scenarios/locations to effectively challenge you. A standout memory is when we spent part of an early on lesson focussing on changing down gears properly. He took me to a perfect road for learning, with several roundabouts, and patiently taught me until I felt comfortable and confident with the techniques. This was helped by Erkan always being very clear in letting you know where you are doing well and also, perhaps more importantly, where and how you should improve. And he also seems to not miss anything!

Erkan has been very flexible when scheduling me in, especially as it came towards my test. The lessons have always focussed on driving, so that I was able to meet a wide range of scenarios, and learn how to deal with them, which I simply would not have done by staring at a book. He has on several occasions run over time, with no charge, to let me practice a technique and to ensure that I have got it right by the end of the lesson.

Shelash is your guy!  

I'm very pleased to having had Shelash as my instructor - he is professional and persistent, yet very friendly. I couldn't recommend him enough.

In addition, he has a really great car to learn in, with all the modern bells and whistles like 360-degree cameras to help you learn the bounds of the vehicle.

Thank you Erkan for giving me the confidence and skills to pass my test - you were fantastic!  

I cannot recommend Erkan enough as a driving instructor - I had previously had lessons in Southampton (and failed my test!) but starting lessons with Erkan taught me SO much more about driving... it taught me how to be a good driver, rather than just someone robotically trying to pass a test.

Thank you to Andy George!  

I needed a lot of help and practice whilst learning everything from general driving to maneuvers, and Andy was happy to explain and practically demonstrate all of those key points as many times as needed, and continuously tell me how I could improve. Thank you very much, I couldn't have done it without you!

Learn to DRIVE not just to PASS  

Erkan Cengiz is a fantastic instructor I completed a total of 22 lessons with him and passed my test with flying colours. He completely transformed my approach to driving I now can drive with confidence and ease I would recommend him massively as he really takes the time to critique and improve your driving skills to make sure that you not only PASS but DRIVE safely and with enjoyment in the future.

Thank you - Andy George  

Andy helped me pass my test first time! He was very patient and encouraging, whilst keeping firm to ensure that I didn't develop any bad driving habits. He was very flexible with lesson times (he even gave up part of his world cup weekend to help me with the final preparations for my test).

I passed with 18 hours of lessons and would thoroughly recommend Andy - he is a BRILLIANT instructor.

Thank you very much for your excellent instruction which helped me to pass first time. I understood exactly what I needed, and gave just the right level of encouragement. An outstanding teacher!

Worth every penny!  

I passed my driving test on my first try all thanks to Erkan. He is an amazing instructor who ditches the book and will give you all hands-on practical knowledge. He has the ability to adapt to your pace and adjust the lesson accordingly. I passed my test with just 20 hours of lessons and I had no experience driving a car prior to that. All I can say is, Go for it!

In my specific case, when I took up lessons with Shelash, I had some previous driving experience in India and wanted to improve and get a UK driver's license. Shelash's lessons allowed me to bridge the gap between these vastly different driving environments in less than 4 weeks! His sense of humour helped me absorb ideas readily be it checking mirrors, signalling, or manoeuvres; his patience towards my repeated mistakes prevented me from being discouraged.

I recommend Shelash with all my conviction to students of all ages and driving backgrounds.

Ian was brilliant!  

I passed my driving test a few days ago thanks to Ian. Ian was a really great instructor, more than I could’ve asked for. He was very patient, caring and understanding throughout all of the driving we did together. He stuck by me when I had driving issues, and I’m so grateful for all his help - thanks to him I know have the opportunity to drive for the rest of my life. Thanks Ian, can’t give you enough credit.

I did almost 50 classes with another instructor and failed twice. Luckily I met Erkan and he pushed me out of my comfort zone. I have not seen him quiet inside the car, always on his toes, pointing out my faults. I am no more afraid of cars and gears. He taught me how to control the car and be comfortable on different kinds of roads. Amazing energy he has and he really fought for me. With Erkan I passed the first time and he also helped me to be a confident driver. Now I feel like I can drive anywhere and can confidently take my little girls out for a ride. And finally 'I can feel the car now' 🙂

Thanks a lot Erkan.

Best driving instructor ever!  

I want to thank Paul for helping me passing my driving test in 2 weeks without any previous driving experience. He’s an amazing instructor, I had lots of fun learning with him and I reccomend him to everyone.

Thank you Ian!  

Ian was my driving instructor, and he was great! I passed first time, and he made me feel very confident and comfortable behind the wheel of a car. Thanks for all your help and patience Ian!

Thank you to Jonathan Phillips  

Thanks Jonathan Philips for helping me pass first time! He's fantastic driving instructor. I ended up with only one minor fault on the test sheet, and I know I couldn't have done it without John's help. Added to that, he was always really friendly to me and made sure his lessons were enjoyable. Thanks very much! And keep on playing those drums 🙂

So Grateful!!!  

Erkan was an amazing instructor! Straight forward and so very helpful. I was able
To pass the practical and theory test the first time and more importantly I improved my daily driving. I would highly recommend Erkan!

Passing  

I would recommend this driving school to anyone who is a new learner. I started off not knowing anything about a car and I have recently passed my test with 5 minors. Linda helped me build my confidence and helped me accomplish everything. Thank you!!

My sincere thanks to David Hurdidge. Can't imagine a better driving instructor than him : skilled, patient, friendly and trustworthy - real professional. Even being a skilled driver, I can hardly see myself passing driving test here in UK the first time without him correcting my driving habits and polishing existing driving skills, all in all, making me a far better driver than I were, and that is just in a course of handful of lessons. Again, thanks a lot,

Chris is great!  

Chris is an absolutely brilliant instructor. He's very relaxed and instantly makes you feel at ease, which helps each lesson go smoothly. He's very patient and understanding and tailors his instruction to exactly what you need, both in terms of skill level and learning style. I'm an American that needed to get my UK license. I wasn't a brand new driver, being that I have my US license, and Chris zoned in on exactly what I needed to work on

I wasn't a brand new driver, being that I have my US license, and Chris zoned in on exactly what I needed to work on rather than wasting time starting from step 1. He's honest with you and every lesson with him was a positive experience! I passed my test the first time with only 4 minors. I'm sad my time with him is over! He was recommended to me by others and I will definitely go on to recommend him!

Best Driving Instructor Ever!  

My driving instructor was (Zairai) "Safi".
He was amazing, he was very clear and concise when teaching the rules of the road and answered every concern/worry that I had about the test! He was very committed, and when my previous instructor disappeared Safi accommodated my lessons quickly and effectively!
I can now happily say that I have passed my test with zero faults!
Thanks Safi!

Bloody brilliant.  

Ian was an amazing instructor, calm and comforting. Always ready to help and easily understandable. 120% worth it.

Passed 1st Time!  

I would like to thank, and recommend, Ian (Godmanchester) for his patience and uplifting personality over the last few months. He was my second instructor, and once found, nothing could have caused me to switch again! Nervous, lacking in confidence, and prone to panic, I honestly never expected to pass - let alone first time! Ian was always calm and reassuring, and wouldn't let me chicken out of anything! Whilst I absolutely recommend that you have him as your instructor,

Ian, thank you for everything xx

Absolutely amazing instructor  

Linda was absolutely amazing. Couldn't recommend her higher. I travel constantly and come from a different country, not an easy thing to deal with as a driving instructor, for far too many reasons. She was amazing. Incredibly patient and worked with me until she ultimately got me the pass i needed, to finally get things going here. Eternally grateful, if there were a million stars she'd get em all.
