I've had a few instructors, but Martin was by far the best all rounder instructor! I thoroughly enjoyed his lessons - not only because he's a great teacher but also because he's just a great person to chat to, which makes the whole experience enjoyable. You're definitely safer with me on the road thanks to Martin ;)
Martin is an absolute LEGEND!! Patient, funny, and puts you at ease instantly. He knows everything and always listens and shares information thoughtfully. My partner and I have both been successful using Martin as a driving instructor and recommend him any chance we get!! He's the guy to get to pass the test and feel confident behind the wheel!! Geeee Whizz!!
I just wanted to extend my huge thanks to Martin for his excellent guidance and teaching! He is friendly, professional and put me at ease! In just five weeks of lessons I passed my P's first go and with "flying colours!". I would highly recommend his driving school to anyone! Thanks Again!, Mate! :)
Martin was great. So patient and provides answers to all you concerns. My son passed first go. i would definately use him again.
Just wanted to write a massive thanks to Martin (from learnerdrivers.com). This was my 2nd time going after my P's, since I was over cautious my first test and failed. With Martin's help I was able to pass the test and I feel way more confident as a driver on the road. Martin is very knowledge and super friendly he created a comfortable learning environment , he answered all of my questions and some silly ones too. He was very supportive of my driving and always believed in me, in becoming a safe driver. On the day of the test he told me "You'll be fine and just do your best" and with these words I calmed down and passed it. He is full of wisdom and he knows his stuff, Highly recommended him.
