I decided to try and learn how to drive again after more than one failed test a few years ago. A friend recommended I used 1st Time and in particular Franco. Franco was a fanastic instructor who made the process seem easy and was able to build my confidence enough so that I passed at the first time of asking this time around. Thank you Franco!..

If you're lucky enough to get Franco as your instructor, like me you'll benefit from his vast experience and ability to explain things simply. He's genuinely one of the nicest guys I've met and a fantastically relaxed and experienced instructor, sure to unlock your driving potential. I can't recommend him highly enough! He guided me through to pass first time with little stress and I had a great time along the way...

I had Franco as my instructor. His professional and relaxed approach inspired confidence in me allowing me progress quickly and learn from my mistakes. He taught me everything I needed to know without over-complicating things. His superb tuition enabled me pass first time with relatively few hours of instruction, I canít recommend him more highly!..

I actually passed my test first time, but definitely would not have been able to do it without Oumar, my fantastic instructor. For anybody able to accept when they make a mistake (and everybody makes mistakes when learning to drive), he is a perfect instructor. Oumar is firm but patient and always explains exactly how you can improve next time. As a result I have my driving licence on the first attempt, thanks to him. I could not recommend this company more highly. Thanks Oumar. Thanks 1st Time...

I was so happy with this driving school service. I was assigned Franco, and he really was fantastic. I had failed once with a previous school and was quite nervous about getting back into driving. After five lessons, I passed. Franco knew exactly how to make me feel comfortable in the car, and knew the road so well. He became a friend, more than an instructor. ..

* Damilola O

Wished I came to 1st Time, right from the beginning when I first started learning to drive. Issues that I had continuously had with a previous instructor FRANCO was able correct them before the end of my first lesson, he's taught me things that exceed my expectations. Enjoyed having lessons with him as he is super friendly and knows how to drop a few jokes. Couldn't have asked for a better instructor than Franco! ..

I was assigned Franco and could not have been happier with the lessons he gave me. I passed first time after 25hrs tuition from him and feel like I am a confident driver with a good holistic appreciation of the road. He is great to spend time with and really goes the extra mile. Thanks..

* Tom Gower

I'd like to say a big thank you to Peter who has taught me to drive resulting in me passing my test today with only 1 minor. Every possible angle was covered during my lessons meaning the test was quite comfortable. I was not made to feel like a cash cow and it seemed he genuinley wanted me to do well. He was very fair when it came to costs and he would always pick me up from my home, always getting a full hour, even going over if there was something he would like to address before the lesson was over. He would advise me on what to work on as he knew I had the use of a car inbetween lessons. He was definately NOT looking to get as much money out of me as possible!! I would definitely recommend his services. ..

I changed my driving instructor after failing 3 times with another school. Stuart worked well with me, very patient and focused, he helped to build my confidence. He was always on time, if not early, and even finished the full lesson when I turned up late by fifteen minutes on one occasion, using his own time. He concentrated his efforts on my road skills rather than the manoeuvres which worked very well for me.
I would highly recommend them, after passing today.
Thanks Stuart for all your help!..

I had a private franchisee driving instructor from 1st time. Bald headed and had his own silver diesel ford fiesta. He was unfrofessional and was always late for classes and use to leave early. He was there for making money . He would give false hopes that your are doing good and after he had made money he will leave halfway by creating situations where you will be forced to leave him. Beware of such unprofessional driving instructors!!! I then had a driving instructor from Red and I passed subsequently...

I've recently passed my first driving test with 1st Time and I feel great! My instructor Fred made sure that I familiarised myself with the area in which the driving test took place so the test was so pleasant as I knew the roads. He also taught me to drive properly to the standard required by the examiners. I never thought I would get parallel parking right but Fred helped me alot and now I'm perfect at it. The examiner was really impressed with my driving and even more impressed that I past at my 1st attempt. I would recommend 1st Time to everybody and especially my instructor Fred...

I should have added this a while ago but I have to say my instructor Rob Jary was amazing. I had failed a couple of times before and wasn't the most confident pupil when I started learning with him. He improved my driving, explaining EVERYTHING so well to me and my confidence. I wished I had found him before but I am so glad I eventually did. ..

I am pleased to say I found learning to drive with 1st time school of motoring a pleasant experience. Having started with one instuctor who unfortunately left 1st time to pursue another career . I was placed under the instruction of Rob Jary whom I found to be both informative and reassuring .My confidence and understanding of driving grew from lesson to lesson ,The cars in which I was tutored were of good quality and performance and any nerves I may have been feeling were instantly put at ease by the instructors calm and encouraging manner. As a result of this I passed my practical test first time and feel sure this is a direct result of good teaching , I would gladly recommend 1st time school of motoring to anyone considering learning to drive .

I had pete as my driving instructor and i passed first time, no-one in my family could believe I passed first time as i am usually terrible at this sort of thing. I had fantastic driving lessons with pete he really was great, always calm and managed to keep me calm when i became frustrated with myself for not getting things right. If i stuggled to understand the way he was teaching he would always find another way for me to relate to what he was trying to teach me. Before my driving test Pete had great words of encourgement. A truley fantstic driving instructor i would recommend him to anyone. If he can get me a driving liscense he can get anyone one...

Stumbled across First Time after reading reviews on here funnily enough. Went with ADI called PETER COVERLEY, what can I say which hasn't been said about this man, great teaching technique, always on time, great sense of humour and enstilled a great deal of confidence in me which was lacking when I first started out, needless to say I passed 'First Time.' Cool guy all round, be sure to ask for Peter..then again he does have one downside...he's a Man Utd fan!..

My driving Instructor was Rob Jary, very reliable, calm, patient and trustworthy. Everything you want in a driving instructor. I was quite an unconfident driver but Rob put me at ease and made me believe that i could do it I have now passed my test and am thrilled. Prices are reasonable too. If you're going to book lessons book through 1st time and ask for Rob Jary. By far the best!!!..

After reading the review here, I booked lessons with Vinny. I took my test on the 13th Jan and passed 1st time!

I cannot recommend Vinny enough, he was a really great instructor. Flexible, patient and on time. He is a real people person and humorous. He made me feel at ease and gave me confidence. I could not have done it without him.

I had taken a couple of lessons with another instructor before Vinny. I found this instructor too agressive and critical, he made me loose confidence and feel as if I would not be able to achieve test standard. You will know within 1-2 lessons if you like your instructor - if you don't, change straight away otherwise you will be wasting you money and time.

Always book lessons with somebody who has been recommended. Ask friends, family or neighbours for recommendations or look at reviews online...

I have found 1st time to be excellent. After having a previous driving instrustor which was charging me £22 for 50 minutes 1st time are so much cheaper...but the service certainly didnt reflect this. My driving instructor John is always reliable, on time and extremly friendly (he doesnt even mind my constant taslking) and always ensures that I have the full one hour lesson.
I completed more in one lesson with him than I did in 6 with my previous instructor. I would recommed to all (and i have too all my friends many of whom are now changing instructors to be with him). ..

Vinny taught my wife - promt, flexible and REALLY patient. A brilliant tutor for a fair price. HIGHLY recommended.

After having a previous instructor waste my time and money my sister recommended 1st time. She had passed her first driving test after having lessons with them.
Whilst driving with 1st time i began to enjoy my lessons again, my instructor was always on time and seemed eager to teach me rather than waste time. After 20 hours with 1st time i passed my driving test first time.
I would recommend this company...

Jul 21, 2008
* Aaron

After being disappointed with so many other so-called "schools" I very impressed with 1st Time. Had a really good instructor who actually wanted to get me through the test rather than just take my money.

It was cheaper too and you get an hour's lesson - not 50 mins!

Should've gone with them first of all.
