Customer Reviews


Adrian is a fantastic driving instructor and those are the words of my daughter who has just passed. He had a bit of a waiting list yes party I’m sure because of Covid but I’m sure more because he has such a great reputation in Knutsford everyone wants to be taught by him.     

The weekly updates he provides by email are great and he even arranges a couple of mock practical tests. I can’t recommend him enough, a great instructor and a really nice guy.” - Jason Davies - Knutsford (February 2022)

"I booked a couple of motorway driving lessons with Adrian to boost my confidence and skills after not having driven so much in lockdown. He was a great teacher and with the advice and coaching from these lessons I've made several happy motorway journeys since! 5 stars, would recommend Adrian's lessons to anyone.” - Lisa Smith - Chelford (September 2021)


“Thank you very much for teaching me to drive, also for giving me the confidence I needed! I couldn’t be more grateful!” - Jess Hall - Knutsford (October 2019)

Driving Lessons Chelford

“I just wanted to thank you so much for being a fabulous teacher to James and Jake.  They cannot sing your praises highly enough.  You really are a star!  Keep up with the wonderful work that you do with your reassuring and calm manner.  I will be in touch with you again when it is Jemma’s turn to learn to drive in a few years time.” - Helen Burrington - Chelford (November 2018) 


"Adrian is the most patient driving instructor I have ever met!  I can't thank him enough for getting me through my driving test.  I honestly never thought this day would come and I am over the moon.  He never gives up on his pupils and will help build your confidence in the car.  I was such a nervous learner and Adrian helped me massively to feel like passing my driving test was something I could achieve.  I don't think any other instructor could have got me to pass.  Thank you so much Adrian!" - Heather Yarwood - Knutsford (October 2018)


"Thanks Adrian. That's both of my lads safely passed thanks to your patience and professionalism." - Tim Willis - Goostrey (April 2018)


“Thank you for helping me achieve what I was convinced was impossible!  Having suffered from huge confidence issues and anxiety all my life, when I failed my practical test for the 4th time I was convinced driving and I were just not meant to be!  I had tried numerous different driving instructors, driving approaches and anxiety coping techniques to help me get through my test, but none had worked!  So when Adrian took me on as a student he had a big task on his hands!  But low and behold, a month or so down the line I passed my test with him first time!  When one thing didn't work, he would always have another trick up his sleeve!  His friendly, positive and down to earth approach to driving built my confidence up from rock bottom to the point were I totally believed in my ability to drive!  So thank you so much Adrian!  I would recommend you to ABSOLUTLEY ANYONE!  You proved that miracles do just take a little bit longer :D” - Jess Henderson - Knutsford (August 2017)


“Thank you very much for all the encouragement throughout my driving lessons and with the test, I don’t think I could have had a better driving instructor as there wasn’t ever a dull moment in the car and you made it feel like I was driving with a friend not a teacher.  I would highly recommend you to anyone who is looking for lessons.” - Dylan McCourt - Knutsford (August 2016)


“I just wanted to message you as it has been around 3 years since I passed my test but I still recommend you to everyone who I speak to.  I still think of your advice when I’m driving now, if in doubt slow down and be sure of distance before you make a move.  I also feel I can speak from experience because you were not my first driving instructor but you definitely made me the confident driver that I am (but doing so in the safest manner).  I haven’t had a single driving incident and I have you to thank.  So thank you!  Keep teaching!” - Fay Calvert (August 2016)

"Thank you Adrian for all of your help with getting my UK license!  After 17 years of driving on "the wrong side" of the road, Adrian has been immensely helpful in sorting out years of accumulated bad habits and making the change from automatic to manual driving very comfortable. I passed on my first attempt, also saving me money and time! If you're in need of a driving instructor, I doubt you will find anyone better than Adrian!” - James Goode - Prestbury (December 2015)

"I contacted Adrian at short notice for a few lessons before my test. I had already booked my test but my previous instructor couldn't fit me in. Adrian went out of his way to accommodate me and managed to get me booked in for 4 lessons. 

From the word go Adrian was wonderful. I had failed my test 3 times already and Adrian was brilliant at getting my confidence and conviction in my driving to the highest level. His patient, calm and methodical style of teaching helped me to consolidate what I already knew and to iron out all the wrinkles that had previously let me down. 

He is friendly, funny and always gives the right balance of positive feedback with areas of improvement so you can keep confident whilst working towards your targets. 

I learnt so much during my time with Adrian and when test day came I passed with only one minor! Adrian’s incredible teaching style coupled with his innovative and informative teaching tools in his car means the learning experience was stellar from start to finish meaning you come away knowing WHY you have to do something rather than just how. I would recommend Adrian to everyone. He is just fantastic!” - Hattie Wadsworth - Prestbury (September 2014)

Customer Reviews Stockport

"After failing my first driving test I couldn't bring myself to ruining my confidence in driving, especially when you hear of people having 7 attempts before passing.  I needed a new driving instructor who would make it happen the second time round and Adrian was just what I was looking for.  I would recommend him to all those who really need to learn or polish up to get that pass.  His teaching skills, patience, passion for driving and the building of confidence in his students is beneficial. Thank you Adrian!" - Hannah Greaves - Stockport (February 2013)
