First class service

Can not speak highly enough about the tuition i received from Safe4Life more specifically my instructor MARK. Learning to drive is something I have struggled with for many years and I have tried various different schools and instructors with limited success.
However Mark made me feel very relaxed and has a great way of teaching all skills required. Very down to earth and genuine man would highly recommend to all.
Passed my test with just 2 minors!!!!!

I would highly reccomend mark, after my other instructor bailing on me, mark helped me through my test. Made me more confident and comfortable on the road, a massive thank you to mark, would highly recommend him to anyone looking to learn.

A massive thank you Mark!!

I would like to say a massive thank you to Mark Evans!! Having two friends that passed first time with Mark, they suggested him to me, due to my previous driving teacher who I had a few tests with, not being so good. Mark made me feel comfortable and confident on the roads very quickly. He makes each lesson a productive and enjoyable. Thank you again Mark, couldn’t have passed without you!

Great company and instructor

I had Mark and he made the whole experience brilliant, made me very comfortable from start to finish. Gave good tips about my driving which made me more confident about doing my test. Thank you Mark.

Thanks Mark

I would highly recommend Mark Evans. He was very patient and helpful throughout the time I was having lessons. He made me feel very comfortable and at ease and his lessons were very enjoyable. Thank You Mark!

Cheers Dan

I started with Dan after a friend suggested him. Made the experience enjoyable and had a good laugh throughout all the lessons. Never any hassle with times and always gave enough notice for any changes, not that there were many. Managed to get me my pass first time so doing somthing right. Cheers again and can't recomend enough.

Daves the best...

I started driving with Dave in august and he made me feel comfortable and at ease straight away! I always enjoyed my lessons with dave and always looked forward to them, even when he told his rubbish jokes!!!! He is very reliable and was always as flexible as he could be. Dave is so passionate and wants all his pupils to do well. I would recommend dave to everyone who is looking for an instructor! Thanks Dave!

Thank you Ian

Thankyou to Ian Willetts who has been extremely patient and helpful with me throughout! Will genuinely miss my lessons as I enjoyed them every week! Thanks again Ian!

by Chris Hall on Safe4Life Driver Training

My driving instructor Ian Willetts was an excellent instructor throughout my learning; always reliable, friendly and patient and I always enjoyed and looked forward to my driving lessons each week. Thanks to Ian's good quality teaching, I passed first time. Would definitely recommend Ian and Safe4Life to anyone interested in learning to drive. Cheers Ian!

Ian's your guy!

I had experience with two driving instructors before coming to Safe4Life and taking lessons with Ian Willets. Ian was by far the best instructor I've had! Not only did he teach me the right way to do things, he also did a great job of explaining why to do things that way. Every lesson was a pleasure and Ian is a top guy. If you're after a great, friendly and enthusiastic instructor you can't go wrong with Ian! I had taken a test before coming to Safe4Life and my confidence was down after failing. Ian was able to build my confidence up higher than it had ever been and as a result I was able to pass with 0 faults. Ian said I did the hard work but I disagree and I could never have passed without him. Thanks again Ian! See you on the road!

Dave Patrick (Joke Magician)

Passed first time with Dave! I can honestly say he is every learner drivers dream instructor and I couldn't recommend anyone other than himself. He has taught me every step of the way to my success, from developing my skills to providing me with encouragement and support. Dave is THE BEST!!

by Chloe Bate on Safe4Life Driver Training
Thanks Claire

Passed first time with Claire, couldn’t say a bad word about her. Lovliest woman I’ve met, her advice was brilliant with the result being myself going from very nervous to very confident. Wouldn’t have done it without her and I’m so glad to have started this journey with her. Thanks to Claire I’m now driving with my own freedom and independence. Would definitely recommend xx

by James Jones on Safe4Life Driver Training
Mark Evans

Excellent instructer who has a lot of time for his pupils. He's always been straight forward and calms you when your struggling. And that is why in my opinion, Mark Evans is the best driving instructer in the area.

Passed first time with lisa today after failing 8 times with a previous driving school and not understanding why. Great tuition and teaching styles that are sure to help you pass. If you have lessons with lisa theyre worth while as well as a giggle. Thanks lisa xx

Would like to say thank you to Gail for being such an amazing instructor! Passed today with 2 minors! Brilliant lady recommend to anyone xx

by Amy Hughes on Safe4Life Driver Training

Had my first driving test today and passed with 0 minors all thanks to Mark Evans he’s an amazing instructor and I couldn’t recommend anybody else better! Joy to be around always up for a laugh and makes learning how to drive a whole lot more enjoyable! Thanks for believing in me and I wish you all the best!

I passed first time!!

Mark Evans was my driving instructor for safe 4 life, I passed my test first time today, thank you to Mark Evans and safe 4 life for making this happen

I had my driving test today and passed first time with only 2 minors. Thank you to Mark for getting me through my test after losing my confidence with previous instructors I couldn't recommend Mark enough to anyone, best instructor in the area!

by James Taylor on Safe4Life Driver Training

I passed today first time with 5 minors, fully recommend mark he’s very patient and got a good way of teaching manuvers, plus the banter is top

Thanks jo

I've had driving lessons with Jo and passed first time! Can't thank her enough for everything she has done and how she has helped me. Jo is an excellent driving instructor and would highly recommend! Thank you again.

I had my lessons with jo and from the very first lesson up until the very last she was brilliant never pushed me out of my comfort zone and helped me in whatever way she could thank you again jo.

Thanks mark

by Jack Heather on Safe4Life Driver Training

Hassan was an excellent driving instructor, make the process stress free and was very reliable and always on time.

by Ella Hogan on Safe4Life Driver Training

My Daughter recently passed her test with the lovely Jo as her instructor. I can’t recommend Jo highly enough! We will definitely be using her for our other 2 Daughters when they learn to drive and are booking motorway lessons for our eldest Daughter!! Thank you Jo!!!


Took my first driving test today after 2 previous instructors Dan was my 3rd and can’t speak highly enough about him, really good instructor made lessons enjoyable and taught me well enough to breeze through my test, definitely would recommend Dan to anybody

Thanks Mark!

Anyone around the Dudley area looking for an instructor I couldn't recommended Mark more! I had two other instructors before Mark and they didn't seem to have half the patience and dedication he has - even if that means booking me in for my test when he was on holiday because there was a cancellation.
There would be times where I'd struggle to understand how to do something but he always thought of another way to make it easier. Nothing ever seemed too much trouble.
Thanks for the great lessons mark wouldn't have been able to pass first time without someone who didn't nag me to get my backside into gear! 🙂

Thank you Shazia

My driving instructor was Shazia and thanks to everything she did I managed to pass first time! She was always patient and would keep going over things until I got it, I asked for 3 hours per week and Shazia was always able to fit me in even around college and work times. Cannot thank her enough for everything she did to help me pass and I would recommend the company to anyone 🙂

Thanks safe 4 life

Passed first time on thursday 11th jan, many thanks to Hassan my instructor.
Made my learning experience stress free, with expert advice and support.
I cannot thank you guys enough.

Thanks Mark

Can’t thank Mark enough for all the hard work, time and effort he put in with me to get me passed! He was so patient and very friendly, always enjoyed my lessons and I will miss them. After passing first time with only 2 minors, I would definitely recommend Mark to anyone! He’s such a great instructor, constantly learning new things every lesson and constantly reminding me that I could do it.

by ashley osbourne on Safe4Life Driver Training
Really good driving school

I passed my driving test on Tuesday 9th January for the first time, and I can't thank Claire so much she has been a fantastic instructor I would recommend Claire to my family and friends enjoyed my lessons with her, thank you so much Claire once again. see you on the road!!!

by Joby Lawrence on Safe4Life Driver Training
The Mighty Dave Patrick

Never met someone as calm and understanding as Dave and he is the main reason for me passing my test. I couldn't have done it without his positive attitude and his insanely cheesy jokes. Even though i'm very happy to have passed it's also a pretty sad moment because I won't be seeing Dave every Monday. Always gave me confidence and motivation, Thanks again Dave, 100% recommend to anyone who's looking to learn to drive, you won't find any instructors better!! See you soon Dave!

Thanks Jo

Thank you so much to Jo for getting me through my driving test first time
I would defo recommend her to anyone, very enjoyable lessons every week. Dont know what i will do every friday now. Once again thank you so much Jo. See you around!!

by Charlotte Nock on Safe4Life Driver Training
Best Ever

I have been with other driver instructors before but none of the them gave me the confidence that Jo has! She’s so great to have as an instructor, she talks to you and makes you feel welcome and tells you when you’re doing a great job. Jo always gave me the confidence and the boost when I couldn’t believe I could do something and it’s because with Jo I passed my driving test first time. Thanks for everything Jo!

Thank you Mark

Thanks Mark,Friendly, patient and a great instructor.


Thanks to Paul I've passed my driving test today!! He is very patient and helpful and a genuine nice guy. He was also flexible to fit around my college hours. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Highly Recommend

Passed 1st time only 1 minor fault, my instructor Claire was calm and understanding. Very knowledgeable of the roads, highly recommend. Thankyou Claire Potter !

by Jessica Carpenter on Safe4Life Driver Training
An Amazing Instructor

Jo is an absolutely amazing instructor and I would recommend her to anyone. She is full of patience and makes every lesson enjoyable. I learnt so much from her from day one and I'm going to miss my weekly lessons! I couldn't have asked for anyone better, she always had faith in me even when I didn't. I couldn't have passed my test first time without you. Thank you so much...see you around!

This goes out to Paul for being the best driving instructor. Best to get along with and he would never let you down, I would recommend to anyone wanting to pass. Thank you Paul Cresswell!


Absolutely brilliant, Lisa is one of the best and calmest instructors around. Had under 17s lessons, which were 100% worth it, and passed my test first time, no minor faults. I'd heartily recommend Safe4Life to anyone!

Thank you John!

Thank you so much John for helping me pass my test first time. John is an amazing instructor who supported me throughout all my lessons. I looked forward to every lesson as John made each lesson enjoyable whilst teaching me everything I needed for my test, allowing me to make progress in every lesson. I was able to ask him anything during my lessons and John would always know how to help me with any queries I had. He made me feel more confident when driving and I would 100% recommend John and Safe4Life. Once again, thank you John!

Passed today first time with no minors!!

I cannot explain how happy I am with the service I have received from Safe4Life right from the beginning! Ian Willetts is an A* instructor and I honestly recommend him to everybody that wants to learn to drive! 6 months I've been learning and to pass today has made the hard work worth it!

Thank you gulshan!

Thank you !!! My instructor was amazingggg and better than my first! Thank you Gulshan! I would recommend you to anyone who is struggling or started their driving lessons. I had my first test and I passed on my first try. Supportive and couraging instructor as I was less confident with certain manoeuvres and driving uphill. After my lessons, I was confident with everything.

by Leah Morris on Safe4Life Driver Training

Jo was the best instructor I could have asked for. She was extremely calm and patient with me, but also made sure I did everything to the best of my ability. She is very easy to get along with and makes you feel at ease. Thank you for helping me pass first time Jo! Would recommend her to anybody.

I cannot thank Simon at Safe4life enough. After having to switch driving schools with my driving test fast approaching, Simon (in just a few short weeks) made me become a confident driver and fully prepared me for my test. Delighted to have passed my test first time! Thanks again Simon.


My driving instructor was John and what can I say but an amazing instructor having only 25 lessons with him I was put in for my test and today I passed first time, I would definitely recommend this company and especially John, top bloke......many thanks for your time and support Andy.

Thanks mark

Thanks you Sime

Thanks for everything Sime, through all the torturous lessons we have had you got me the pass. I would recommend you to anyone and everyone. He keeps you as confident as he can and is always trying to make your driving perfect. He has a very patient and friendly nature and wouldn’t have wanted anyone else to teach me.

by Cadie East on Safe4Life Driver Training
Thank you Roy!!!!!

I passed my test today with a Roy as my instructor. After having over 200 driving hours since I was 17, I never thought I’d pass my test. I then started lessons with Roy and he made me see the road in a completely different way which made me a comfortable and confident driver. He was flexible with my hours and gave me all the time I needed! I can not recommend him enough! Thank you thank you thank you Roy, you are amazing! ��� xxxxxxxx

Thanks to the best driving instructor I passed first time! He helped me with my confidence in driving and made me feel like I could actually do it!

by Imogen Groves on Safe4Life Driver Training
Passed first time with Jo!

Jo was very patient with me and throughout my lessons there was never a dull moment. Unlike many other instructors she will make conversation with you and try to make your lessons more enjoyable. I would definitely recommend her and the safe4life company. Jo was very thorough in her teaching, and as a result I passed first time with only one fault.

by Rebecca Nicholls on Safe4Life Driver Training
There's only one Dave Patrick!! Legend!!

Thank you to Safe4Life for providing me with the best driving instructor I could have hoped for. I had a bad experience with an independent instructor a year before working with Dave and was very anxious about my driving capabilities. Dave immediately put me at ease, and taught me step by step everything I needed to know. He's highly professional and a dream to work with.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart, I truly am grateful for your patience and hard work over the last year and a half, I know it hasn't been easy at times. =]
Dave's made it so much fun and despite what some of these reviews say about Dave Patrick's sense of humor, I do love hearing one (or ten) of his well honed Dad jokes during a lesson!
Thanks again for all your support and guidance! Second times a charm!! =]


Thanks Claire!!!

Lovely instructor who stayed patient with me throughout and helped me gain confidence as well as being an amazing teacher and wouldn't have passed first time without her!


Amazing instructor, after having a bad experience with another driving school I transferred to Safe4Life and Claire has been nothing but patient and helpful in correcting and teaching me how to drive to an amazing standard, could not recommend her more.

Thanks Mark !!!

Thank you to mark for helping me pass my test and first time thanks for all ur time help and patience could not of done it without you highly recommended brilliant instructor cheers mate

Massive Thankyou to Simon for helping me pass my test. He genuinely wants you to succeed and allows you to feel comfortable in lessons as well as helping build your confidence. I enjoyed every lesson with Sime as he pushes you to better your driving but he's also good to talk to! Amazing instructor who I'd recommend to anyone!

Thank you Dan

Passed my test first time with only 3 minors because of Dan's patience and help from start to finish. Very understanding and always asked what I wanted to improve on. Couldn't of asked for a better instructor and would recommend anybody who needs lessons to use Dan.

Best Instructor Out There!!

I just want to say a big thank you to Dave Patrick. It's hard to put into words my driving experience with dave so here are a few words: Bad jokes, great instructor. Let's face it if I can pass first time this man can get anyone through a test, I would recommend him to anyone!

Thank you Mark!

Passed - Thank you Mark

Mark is a fantastic instructor who will strive for you to achieve and make sure you are safe on the road. After a few good clips round the ear hole( just joking), I have passed my practical driving test today with 5 faults. I have not parted ways with Mark as I wish to continue improving my driving abilities. Friendly, co-operative and patience are all 3 qualities Mark possesses as an instructor. I could not recommend him enough. Thank you Mark and apologies for being a pain up the back side and dragging my knuckles. 🙂
