Just passed my first test after having lessons with Daniel! I had an amazingly comfortable experience and had only been doing lessons since about Febuary, I’m such a panicky person but with Daniel I always felt comfortable and at ease! Wouldn’t recommend going anywhere else for lessons, I can’t thank Daniel enough for such a comfortable experience. I’m going to miss lessons but so thankful for all his help to get me where I am today! He ran through absolutely everything so thoroughly until I was extremely comfortable with every area and any questions I ever had he helped me until I was 100% comfortable and confident! Daniel was always very punctual and such a pleasure to do my lessons with! Again, I wouldn’t recommend taking lessons elsewhere and I can’t thank him enough! Thank you Daniel!!!!

Daniel is a genuine top fella. I had a great time learning to drive under his guidance. We opted for an intensive two-week course of lessons, and Daniel got me my pass certificate on our first exam! I felt comfortable and encouraged the entire time. I would definitely recommend him to all of my friends and family. I am now a safe independent driver. Thank you, mate.

I cannot recommend Premier Drive enough. Daniel was extremely patient and encouraging, especially as I was a nervous driver. He made me feel comfortable and safe from the very first lesson. If I was struggling with a particular manoeuvre Daniel would break everything down and draw them out on his iPad which really helped to visualise it. After a 12 hour intensive course I felt ready for my test and despite it being cancelled due to Covid, I passed first time 4 months later with 3 hours of extra lessons. At the start of every lesson Daniel would ask me what I’d like to practise and he would help me to feel confident with every manoeuvre before moving on. He was a great teacher and very easy to get along with. Will definitely be recommending him to others.

Daniel is so calm and patient. Whenever I made a mistake, he would get to the bottom of why and would help correct the root cause. He is a brilliant instructor who puts you at ease and makes learning to drive a lot less scary. I highly recommend him! ....and I passed the first time, all because of his tuition! Thank you!!
