Kind Words From My Customers

Steve is a brilliant driving instructor. I came to him after struggling with driving and he has really helped me to enjoy it and develop my confidence. His explanations are very clear and logical and he has great attention to detail. Always on time and never let me down, went above and beyond in terms of feedback at the end of each lesson too. Highly recommend - thank you Steve!

Asmaa Nabul El Leithy

I passed first time today due to Steves’ lessons. He showed me that I could pass my test and he took me right from the beginning of my driving experiences to the test. I wouldn’t have been so prepared if it wasn’t for his lessons.

Thank you!

Passed my driving test today at first attempt thanks to Steve's lessons. He showed dedication and professionalism all through my learning process and helped me understand basic concepts of driving. He also gave useful feedbacks after each lesson.

Thank you Steve!

Steve consistently showed outstanding professionalism, perseverance, enthusiasm and dedication to ensure my son passed his practical test first time. Thank you Steve!

Donald James

Amazing driving instructor and would highly recommend his services. After many years of learning to drive, an ankle injury and a lot of anxiety from previous tests I knew I needed an instructor who would accommodate my worries and help me progress to be confident on the road. From day 1 Steve helped me overcome hurdles and after two years of on and off learning I finally was able to go for my test and passed with no minors. Have no doubts that he is honestly one of the best instructors out there, his car is also wonderful to drive and every lesson is tailored to you to give you the best chance of passing your test.

Georgina Prince

Steve knocked on my door on lesson one and said “let’s get you passed” after a string of poor instructors I was so glad to have chose him. His patience, organisation and explanations were second to none as well as his gadgets to help me learn. Can’t recommend enough. Cheers Steve!

Jonathan 'Jono' Robertson

Thanks Steve for all your support and guidance. I would recommend Steve to anyone, he is very patient, positive and professional. His car was perfect and immaculately clean on every lesson. Coming from another country he really help me learn the signs, rules or the road as well as the practical driving. So pleased I passed first time.

Beata Wilkinson​

Steve is such a fab driving instructor, it takes a lot of patience to teach the likes of me so he did a fantastic job in teaching me to drive. He’s such a friendly, professional guy and really wants the best for his students. He was amazing with me on every lesson and knew how to be with me as I suffer really badly with anxiety and made each lesson as straight forward as can be making me look forward to the next lesson.

Hannah Hunt

I cannot rate Steve highly enough! Having struggled with driving many years ago I gave up thinking that I would never gain my license. Steve is calm mannered and a joy to learn from, his lessons were well thought out and his teaching method easy to follow. Always punctual and never cancelled on me, professional throughout my time with him. Thanks again Steve for helping me get my license, learning with you truly was a pleasure.
Adam Coverley

I can’t recommend Steve highly enough. He is extremely professional, while at the same time very kind and patient.  After recently moving from the US, I was very unsure of driving in the UK - but Steve put all my nerves aside and helped me through the whole process.  He’s a fantastic instructor, and I have him to thank for passing my practical test on the first try!
Kristine Lickstein

Learning to drive with Steve has been a brilliant and enjoyable experience from start to finish..professional,  relaxed , and an all round nice guy... highly recommended.
Ian Thomas

Steve was a fantastic instructor. He has a meticulous way to to help learner drivers of all abilities and his biggest qualities were: Patience, if he could see you were struggling he would offer constructive advice and make you feel more at ease. Versatility was IMO his biggest strength as he would always find a way especially on Manoeuvres to get you to succeed on it. Always I felt extremely safe with Steve next to me, his anticipation/interventions are superb if something was about to go wrong. If you fancy learning an Automatic, Steve is the man for the job and he will overwhelmingly succeed in getting you the Driving License you crave.
Thomas Lodge

I would highly recommend Steve. He is very patient and uses various methods of teaching, so if one doesn't work, he will find an alternative to suit you. I had no confidence when I first started learning to drive and struggled a lot picking it up. He has taught me the skills that helped me pass my test first time, something I don't feel I would have done with another instructor. Thank you!
Catherine Wakefield

Steve is an outstanding instructor who keeps you very calm and is very reassuring. He really goes that extra mile to help by providing alot of support as well as resources to help through the theory and practical exams. I would never have passed without Steve and honestly can't thank him enough. And passing first time round was just the icing on the cake. Big thank you again Steve.
Dan Green

Really good experience with Steve. He is extremely professional and a very good teacher who made me feel comfortable and I have no problem driving now and believe myself to be a good, safe driver and very comfortable with driving myself alone now. Recommend highly.
Madhusuya Thayaparan

Excellent instructor! Very patient, having been previously with an impatient driving instructor and being put off driving for 2 years he definitely brought back my love for driving! Highly recommend! I will be telling all my friends for definite.  Thank you,  Steve Paddy, for helping me pass!!
Charlotte Lewis

Well, it was a challenge for both of us but I finally passed my test! After a few instructors before Steve I was ready for giving up but Steve gave me back my confidence in driving, made the things I'd been struggling with much easier and was very supportive. Explained things very well and put me at ease. I cannot recommend him enough. Thanks again Steve!
Kirsti Foulkes

Calm, and patient instructor, and very good at teaching. Will definitely recommend.
Ethel Ibinabo Threlfall

Steve Paddy helped me learn to drive and confidently pass my practical test in first attempt. Steve does not provide lessons to become rich by charging fees. He has a passion to teach each one of us. Steve teaches you legally how to drive safely, provides you feedback regularly, make you practice what he thought and then checks if you have practised in his next lesson. In short a man that thinks constantly by focusing on your areas of improvement till you drive correctly. I would highly recommend Steve Paddy as he is an excellent instructor and is has oceans of experience in his driving coaching field.
Khalid Mohammed

Lorraine Taylor

I cannot rate the Steve Paddy driving school highly enough! Steve is an incredibly patient and experienced instructor who tailored my driving lessons to suit my learning style. Thanks to Steve I gained the skills and confidence I needed to safely pass my test first time. I can’t imagine a better or more supportive instructor. Thanks again Steve!
Eleanor Hedge

Steve was great at teaching me to drive, he had many ways of explaining something if I didn't quite understand and really focussed on certain areas in order to improve my driving. He takes what you want to cover in the lesson into account and is always very punctual. He was good at creating a stress-free environment to drive in and I felt safe at all times. Would definitely recommend to anyone :)
Nicole Aubury

Steve was really good at teaching me to drive...He is very patient, and will always give you help even on your theory if needed. it was great learning with him over the months and would recommend his driving school to anyone. He is also very easy to talk to and full of conversation which I found very helpful. Overall a brilliant instructor.
Martin Graves

Steve is one of the best instructors. He is very patient and experienced to find out areas of improvement in your driving. His explicit tips and simplified way of explanation helps a lot. His target is not just to get you through the test, but to make you a better and safer driver out there. Would highly recommend to anybody. Thanks a lot Steve.
Shaji Ramkrishnan

Steve was a fantastic driving instructor – professional, patient and supportive all the way trough my learning journey! His ability to stay focused one hundred percent and constructive criticism has helped me both gain confidence and pass my driving test first time.

Vasya Boyadzhieva

Many thanks to Steve for improving my driving skills. Certainly one of best instructors. Very Patient, dedicated and supportive. Will definitely recommend to anyone. Thanks again..
Nik Rai

I would very much like to thank Steve for teaching me to drive. I have previously been with 4 other driving instructors who took the mick and messed about. Steve was very straight forward and honest with me. I had never felt so comfortable yet challenged by a driving instructor before which led to me passing with 2 minors. After many previous attempts and a lot of money I finally found an honest and great instructor - and my younger brother is now having lessons with him and loving it!
Claire Jones

Passed first time with Steve, excellent for first time learners or switching from another instructor. Very easy going and a top man. Helped break down the various driving techniques, explained and showed them in such an easy to understand way i picked up the necessary skills straight from the off, I couldn't recommend him more.
Patrick Gilford

He was always professional, never answered his phone during the lessons and managed to bring a bit of fun to sometimes not an easy lesson. I feel he was honest in his judgment of my progress and readiness for the test - hence why I've passed first time! Thank you Steve! Definetly would recommend Steve's school to anyone who wants to learn to drive.
Magda Wolynska

I cannot rate Steve Paddy highly enough! After numerous driving instructors and failed tests, Steve taught me the skills (as well as gave me the confidence!) to pass with only 3 minor faults! I will definitely be sticking with Steve for my Pass Plus!!!
Emma Kelly

Thank you so much, Steve, for helping me pass my test first time (again!) Your patience, kindness, tolerance and general all-around 'coolness' was so appreciated in helping me build the confidence I needed to drive again. Best driving instructor ever!!!
Julie Verne

If you want to be a safe, confident and efficient driver then I highly recommend Steve, he's an absolute credit to the industry. It was imperative that I passed my test to pursue my career in community nursing so I don't think it's too dramatic to say that Steve has certainly changed my life and has open up a lot of opportunities for me! I will be sure to carry on my pass plus with Steve. Thank you so much, I couldn't recommend Steve highly enough, absolute legend!!!!!
