"I had been very nervous of driving for many years and did not want to get behind the wheel of a car. Eventually I got the courage and called Matt, who then put me in contact with Simon. From day one SImon took me slowly and calmly through the basics and within no time at all I was driving around the dreaded Hicks Gate roundabout with ease. I can not recommend these guys highly enough, Simon's calm and laid back manner made me feel safe and eventually confident behind the wheel. I passed first time which was fantastic but I will miss the great banter and laughs with SImon driving around Bristol, thanks". Mike Canning view more »
