"I passed with Dan and definitely recommend his
driving instruction. The lessons were stress-free,
constructive and taught me not only how to drive
but how to drive well. Dan's teaching is well
structured and targeted, which enables fast and
comprehensive learning. Give him a ring today!"
Daniel, Nether Edge
"Dan was brilliant, he not only allows you to
pass your test quickly (3 months including my
theory), you are also a very capable driver after.
He taught both me and my cousin and neither of us
have had a crash or incident in the 4 years we
have been driving and to say we were both 17 thats
quite an achievement that reflects on Dan's
capability. Make sure he teaches you!"

Here is what
some of my clients have to say about me.
never really liked the instructors until I found
Dan! He assessed my driving and said I needed 12
lessons to be test ready. Sure enough he put me
in for my test after 12 lessons and I passed
first time! He also got my 18 year old step son
through his test first time too! Really nice
guy, very very professional 100% trustworthy you
can't go wrong!"
passed test on my second attempt in Nov 2011 -
(first was in 2000), after two months of lessons.
Dan is an excellent instructor who managed to
instill in me the patience and smoothness that had
let me down in the past. I found him to be
realistic about my potential and encouraging. His
teaching style is methodological, calm, and
ensured that I 'got' how to drive, rather than
just managed to get away with it. I would have no
hesitation in recommending him to others, and once
again, many thanks Dan."
"Dan has a professional approach, is calm,
helpful and explains things well. I tried
four other instructors in Sheffield before finding
Dan - one was always angry and shouted, one was
smelly, and I couldn't easily understand what the
other two wanted me to do. Dan however, always
gave simple clear instruction and let me get on
with driving and made me feel in control".
I have recently passed my test on my first
attempt after learning with Dan. I had struggled
in the past to find a reliable instructor. After
trying several well known driving schools and
seemingly going around in circles, a colleague put
me in touch with Dan. The no nonsense approach
flexibility and results speak for themselves.Give
him a call and i'm sure you won't look back Thanks
"I started preparing for my driving lessons with
Dan staring on 22nd (Sunday) Jan and successfully
passed my practicals on 27 (Friday)Jan. Let me
tell you that I know basic driving but I haven't
took a class before for UK driving. Having
described my need to get my license quickly Dan
took the challenge and corrected all my errors.
With so much dedication and commitment towards
instructing Dan helped me pass the test in the
very first attempt and within a week of
preparation . Thanks to his hard work and
(Who passed his test in one week!)
"I chose to learn intensively because I wanted to
pass over summer, but Dan never 'sold' me lessons
he didn't think I needed. Dan was flexible in
teaching and we could adapt the lessons to suit
what I wanted to do. Dan's tuition helped me pass
"Dan is a very nice instructor. He is really
patient. I've passed my test with him first
time. I would definitely recommend him".
