Passed my test today after 42 hours of lessons with Simon. After never having had any desire to drive previously, I decided to cross another life skill off the list in January at the grand age of 32 and couldn’t have asked for a better learning experience. Simon is such a relaxed and easy going instructor, was always able to work around my days off from work, super reliable and I’m going to miss listening to the funny stories of all his adventures and exploits! My days off aren’t going to be the same anymore.
I had a great experience learning with my instructor Chris. I hadn't had any lessons previously but we fitted lessons around my work and other commitments and in only a few months I passed first time! He's very friendly and explains everything in a systematic and easy to understand way. Through all the help he gave me I feel I was taught to not only pass the test but to be a good and confident driver in general. Chris was always reliable and did his best to fit around my commitments, he clearly cares about all his students and I couldn't thank him enough. I always looked forward to my lessons and would definitely recommend him to others.
As a late starter to the whole driving lark, I was more than a little apprehensive about being let loose on the roads. Turns out you can teach an old dog new tricks. Under Chris's expert tutelage, I passed my test last week and can't wait to to get back out on the road again.
Without doubt, Chris is an excellent all round instructor. He is punctual, attentive, encouraging and patient. His pass rate is outstanding and it shows. I would recommend him without hesitation.
I cannot recommend Simon at A&M School of Motoring enough! I came to Simon from another school after around 10 hours of teaching and he was leaps and bounds more professional, calm, engaging and just in general a far better teacher. Simon has an awesome sense of humour and I’m going to really miss the chats we had and listening to his stories or facts on the road in my lessons. Simon really understands what he needs to do to get the best out of you and improve your driving and he adapts to different situations perfectly. Simon’s techniques for the manoeuvres were foolproof and with his teaching I can’t see anyone struggling to get more than a few minors in the final test. Simon teaches by getting you driving rather than sitting and explaining with a book for half your lesson which greatly increases your scenario and road experience which is vital to pass your test and become a safe driver on the road. I can’t thank Simon enough for the hours he spent with me teaching me to drive.
I just passed my driving test after minimal lessons with only one minor, learning with Chris. I started off as a complete beginner and from my very first lesson Chris clearly explained everything making me feel very confident behind the wheel.
He's always willing to try and work around your commitments and will really go the extra mile for his students. If you want an instructor who's easy to get on with, really cares about his students and is very professional Chris is a brilliant choice.
Thank you for a brilliant experience
Thanks to my instructor Andy’s tuition, I recently passed with only two minors! Andy was highly reliable and always on time. I was able to reserve regular lesson slots in advance to ensure they could fit around my work schedule and other commitments. Driving did not come naturally to me and I was a bit of a slow learner but Andy was very patient and encouraging. He explained everything in an extremely clear way, verbally and with diagrams/pictures. He had spot on methods for easy completion of manoeuvres every time. He offered great guidance on how to perfect driving round all the test route areas. We recorded videos of how to successfully do particular areas of driving I was having difficulty getting to grips with that I could watch in my free time and perfect in lessons. Closer to my test we did plenty of mock tests which prepared me for driving under pressure and highlighted areas in need of improvement which we then worked on. I cannot thank him enough!
Chris helped me pass my test for the first time in Bristol with only 2 minors! He is very friendly and patient and has transformed me into a confident driver. I always looked forward to my lessons, unlike with my previous instructors.. who charged more too! Chris was very reliable and flexible around pick up/drop off locations dependent on my schedule which was really helpful in a busy life. I’d highly recommend him to new drivers or those struggling with current instructors. Cheers Chris!
Our son signed up for the five lessons for £80 as part of his Christmas present . We were very disappointed, he parted with cash up front, first lesson was 35 minutes as cut short but said would make up next lesson. The next one was an hour and a half, (son rang us when he was dropped off and we were again surprised at the time). Instructor said he needed the toilet! The communication was very poor, we said we would like to call it a day as we weren't happy with the situation, to be told "don't give refunds". This so called offer is too good to be true, only interested in getting your money and getting you hooked into two hour lessons. We experienced similar practice with a driving school with our other child, short lessons, feel let down!!!!!
I can't recommend Simon from (A&M School of Motoring) enough for learning to drive, especially if you've not had a great experience before or are nervous of driving. His calm and clear instruction makes for a great learning experience and before you know it you are driving naturally and with confidence. I really enjoyed my lessons and can't thank him enough for getting me through my test. If you've put off learning for years or are fresh to driving, Simon's your man!
As a professional with high stressed Job ,i found it hard to accomodate driving lessons within my busy life style which has left me for with no licence
However i was so lucky to come across Matt of A&M school of Motoring
He is easily the most professional ,patient and accommodating driver instructor i was lucky enough to come across .
Matt not just teaches how to pass the exam but how to anticipate and assess any problems that may encounter you on the road which is a skill very hard to teach but he does it effortlessly and brilliantly and which gives you huge sense of safety when you are on your own on the road
I cant reccomended him highly enough ,he is always on time and nothing is too much to ask
i wish i can give more than just 5 stars :))
Chris is an excellent driving instructor. His friendly and professional approach to driving meant that learning to drive was a brilliant experience. As it was my first time driving, I wasn't too sure what to expect. His systematic approach allowed me to quickly, safely and efficiently get to a good standard of driving, and ultimately to passing first time with only three minor faults. But Chris doesn't just get you to be able to pass the test, he makes you a confident, safe and intelligent driver. Chris is hard working, and cares for all his students, ultimately he wants you to be a great driver! Not only is he a fantastic instructor but a good friend, making learning to drive something I looked forward to each week!
I have had a brilliant learning experience with Chris over the past year. He has provided an excellent level of knowledge and wisdom throughout our time together. With Chris' guidance I now feel like a competent driver and for this I cannot thank him enough. If you are looking for a patient, intelligent, professional and down to earth driving instructor then Chris is your man. I have come away from lessons with a drivers licence and a friend.
Thanks for everything Chris
I was with Andy for about 9 months, he was the perfect teacher. He was very patient with me as I used to get very anxious and he would always make me feel more at ease. We started with the very basics which allowed me to get used to the car before trying to drive. As the lessons progressed we would drive around the test areas and surrounding. Which was very helpful when taking my test as roads were familiar and I would remember things he would've said to me on certain roads. When practising the manoeuvres we started from the most difficult, when he felt as if i was continuously getting it correct we would move to the next, however we would always refresh in a later lesson to ensure I still had it. When preparing for my test, I was the most scared I've ever been for anything and Andy really helped me control my nerves. He would always find a way to make me laugh or we would chat, which for me helped me relax. Overall I 100% recommend Andy, he's a great bloke and I passed 1st time!
When I had my first lesson with Chris I was more nervous than I expected to be. However, he made me feel immediately at ease and didn't push me too hard. As the lessons went on he knew when to push me a little harder and test my limits but all for my benefit. I believe he only does this when he has confidence in you, in order to show you that you can do it and help you to have confidence in yourself. He is an articulate teacher and will pay attention to what is necessary for you not only to pass your test, but also to know that you are a safe driver on the road. Although he takes his job very seriously, your lesson will never be a bore and you will never dread a lesson as you know that you'll spend 2 hours learning and having a laugh. Due to Chris's attention to detail and helpful criticisms, I had minimal nerves for my test and I refuse to believe that there is a better instructor out there and therefore I would be 100% happy to recommend him to anyone in need of an excellent teacher!
