I passed my driving test first time today with Roy as my instructor. He was a brilliant driving instructor who made me feel at ease on my lessons. I thoroughly enjoyed learning to drive thanks to Roy and would highly recommend him as a driving instructor!
I passed my driving test last week on my first time it was down to Jo, who was a really good driving instructor who stuck with me from my very first lesson at the pre 17 site. I just want to say thank you and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a driving instructor.
Thanks for getting me though my test 👍🏼
Jo was my driving instructor from my first lesson right through to passing my driving test. She is a patient, thorough and knowledgeable instructor, who made me feel comfortable and confident when learning to drive. Jo recently upgraded to a new car, which gave me first-hand experience of the latest driving controls. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jo to anybody who wants to learn how to drive and who expects support and reassurance during their lessons.
Would like to say a massive thank you to my driving instructor Gail! Helped me to pass first time. Would definitely recommend safe4life to others wanting to learn.😌
Thank you so much to my amazing instructor Emily for helping me to pass my test! Her calmness and brilliant teaching boosted my confidence so much and has made me a much better driver! I would highly recommend Safe4Life to anyone who wants to learn to drive or wants to change instructor.
Thank you once again Emily - you’re a star!!! ⭐️
Marks a great driving instructor would highly recommend to anyone who is either just starting or even close to the test he would never hold you back past first time with him with only 7 lessons 👍🏼👍🏼
Passed my test today and I cannot thank Dave enough! From the moment I first got in the car on lesson 1, Dave put me at ease straight away! Lessons didnt seem like lessons at all, being in the car is a relaxed, fun place which made learning to drive the highlight of my week. I cannot recommend Dave and his "dodgy jokes" enough! It has been a pleasure, thank you!
Thank you to Claire I have passed today first time great teacher and very flexible to fit in around my other commitments Thanks again
massive thanks to mark! Built my confidence and helped me pass my test first time❤️ Couldn’t ask for a better instructor ❤️
Passed my test first time with Emily,absolutely amazing instructor makes you feel relaxed and at ease 5 stars just doesn’t seem enough! She’s been more than just a driving instructor and I will miss my weekly lessons with her. Thank you so so much I couldn’t of done it without you Emily ☺️ Your one in a million!
Big thanks to Mark, passed my test first time with only 2 minors, couldn’t have done it without him👍
I past my test with Jo Who was an amazing driving
Instructor, I had jo for 4 years and through out things
Came up where I wouldn’t have a lesson for months
But she never forgot about me and was always
Understanding and cooperative. Couldn’t ask for a better
Instructor to have You
Past my test first time only 1 minor with the fantastic help from Mark
Would highly reccomend him he's fantastic.
Thanks to claire I passed my test 2 months ago after just 18 lessons. She was a great teacher and pushed me every lesson to do my best while also supporting me when I wouldn't say if I was struggling. I've now purchased my first car and thanks to her I feel safe as can be driving on my own.
Just passed my driving test with Roy the driving instructor who was brilliant, I am a football player so fitting me in was awkward, but he did days and nights not a problem for him, it took 9 weeks, so cheers Roy.
I’ve passed my test today with the help from mark , he’s a very good instructor very calm and helpful and easy to get along with I would like to thank him for everything and would definitely recommend him 👍🏼
Passed today thanks to Gulshan. Shes an amazing teacher, makes you feel so comfortable and is a perfectionist! Could not have passed within 10 months without her hard work and dedication. Would highly recommend.
Passed thanks to Claire, great instructor so lovely and taught me so much making learning enjoyable. I would 100% recommend!!!
5 stars doesn’t come close to the enough of stars I could give Jo. She has been the most amazing, supportive, friendly and caring person I have ever met. Not only has she been my driving instructor but also my close friend. We have build an amazing friendship and I have really felt at home with Jo, there was never a time I felt scared or uncomfortable because she would always make me feel so confident and calm when I was finding something hard. I have recommended Jo to all my friends and family as she works so hard for all her students, as she would work on her days off for me and also sort me a time to fit my work rota! Just an amazing and lovely women to work with! Thank you so much Jo, I appreciate all your hard work.
Passed first time, thanks to Roy great instructor, very helpful.
Thank you Clair for helping Tayler pass his test. You’ve been a great instructor; patient and thorough. Tayler has enjoyed his lessons with you and I will strongly recommend you to all my friends.
I passed with Ian Willetts, incredibly friendly and knowledgeable instructor. Will recommend to family and friends
I have had 3 previous driving instructors before I met Ian Haycock. I had lost all my confidence in driving. Once Ian started to teach me, he built my confidence up and I passed my test with only 2 minors. Ian is a very patient, professional and understanding person and he is fully committed to his job and doing his best for his pupil. Ian was always able to find lesson times to suit my work hours and was always available on the phone. Thank you Ian.
Thank you to Lisa who helped me reach for the stars and achieve my goal of passing my test. I first tried when I was 17 and then again when I was nearly 30 and now at 44. It's never too late and Lisa has been wonderfully patient and kind, never made me feel stupid or too old and has built my confidence without me even realising it. No question was too silly, she took them seriously and would demonstrate the answers rather than just telling me. I admire and respect her teaching approach. Her rhymes are great and the simplicity of her manner in explaining general driving and manoeuvres is awesome. I was learning in a manual as I thought that I 'should', even though I had bought myself an automatic car! Lisa suggested a couple of weeks ago to have a lesson in her automatic so that I could get a feel for driving an automatic and I loved it. Switched to take my test in it and passed! So to all those who like the idea of an automatic, give it a try, you may just love it like me.
5 stars isn’t nearly enough to rate Emily! As a person or a driving instructor! I’ve been learning to drive since I was 17 but it’s taken me up until the age of 22 to actually enjoy lessons and persist with them weekly. I’m so grateful that I signed up with safe 4 life and especially to have Emily as my instructor. She’s calm, patient and brilliant at pep talking on the days where I didn’t feel as confident as the week before. I’m so grateful and lucky to have had Emily as my instructor as no one made me feel like I could succeed in passing as much as Emily did. I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone who is learning to drive. Thank you again, so much! X
My brother past with Dave about a year ago and recommended him to me, I’m
Glad I took the opportunity as he is a brilliant driving instructor, never late, never cancelled, do not think I would have passed my test without him. He makes driving enjoyable.
100% recommend dave as an instructor, especially with his self preclaimed ‘jokes’.
Once again, thank you Dave
Thank you Clair for being patient and caring. I have learned a great deal from you over the past few months and really appreciate all you have taught me.
One happy lady!
A couple of friends recommended Dave to me after passing with him and I highly recommend Dave Patrick to anyone looking for a driving instructor! Never a boring lesson, always on time, never cancelled a lesson and great at keeping things simple. Gonna miss those dad “jokes” aswell!
Passed my test today first time thank you so much to Ian Haycock, Thank you for giving me the confidence, patience and time, couldn't have done without you. Would highly recommend safe4life for anyone wanting to learn to drive. Thank you so much Ian
My son has just passed his test and had Roy as his driving instructor, he passed first time with one minor. I would highly recommend him to anyone who’s child is looking to learn to drive as he put my son at ease from day one ..... thanks Roy.
I passed first time with the fantastic help on Mark Evans who was a brilliant teacher and really helped me pass my test. He goes through everything at a very high standard and makes sure you know exactly what you should. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone and am so grateful for all of his help. Couldn't of done it without him.
I had Shazia as my driving instructor and there are not enough words to explain how great she was!I passed my driving test the first time and that is all down to her brilliant teaching. Her explanations were very detailed and she made things extremely easy and clear to understand.
Shazia went the extra mile to make sure i was achieving the highest of standards and i cant thank her enough.
I was very lucky to have a great instructor. From beginning I was so scared and panicking to drive and always Shazia was making me comfortable, I knew I was safe with her. We had a good few laughs along the way too! Thank you Shazia and thank you Safe4Life — Kinga !!
Thank you Mark!
Paul is a brilliant driving instructor can't recommed him enough, only took me 18 hours with him to pass first time. Great guy, really helpful, good laugh and very passionate about his teaching. Thank you Paul, Charlie.
Dan was an excellent driving instructor, He helped me pass first time!! If you are considering anyone at Safe4Life Consider Dan! Makes you feel at ease the whole time. Very nice cool guy!

Passed my driving test Thursday with jo first time, i can not thank her enough. Shes a brilliant instructor so patience and friendly. She brings you out your shell and give you the confidence you need to pass. Not only is she my instructor she will be a friend for life.
Mark was such a great teacher, he gave me loads of confidence and always made sure I understood anything he was teaching me before we went onto the next thing
Mark was amazing, really understanding and reassuring. Honestly wouldnt have done it without him. Thank you so much.
I highly recommend john as a driving instructor he makes you feel at ease at all times and gives you a lot of confidence driving!

Thankyou so much Dave!! you are such a good driving instructor your so patient,and amazing at explaining things in the simplest way! i will miss your "jokes" haha, i will miss having lessons with you.
Thank you for the lessons, they've been super helpful and Roy has been an amazing teacher. He's managed to get me to test pass standard within 6 weeks and I have just passed with only 2 hesitation minors. I'll be sure to refer friends and family to safe4life in the future!
Thanks Jo, Couldn’t of asked for a better driving instructor! Very calming, Paitent, professional and always smiling! Thank you so much.
I would highly recommend Dave Patrick !! He puts all his efforts into every lesson and into adjusting to every individual. He was always on time and I never had him cancel a lesson. Every lesson I had I came out feeling more and more confident with my driving. You’ll never get a boring lesson with Dave especially with his dad ‘jokes’. I definitely don’t regret picking Dave as my instructor.
Thanks Mark, Got me passed 1st time, recommend to anyone. Extremely friendly, patcient and helpful. Very glad I chose him.
Learning with John has been a great experience, top bloke. Never gave up on me, even when i felt like giving up. Highly recommend the man. Once again, Thanks again John for helping me pass.
I've been learning to drive with Ian Willetts from safe4life for a couple of months, and he has helped me to learn to drive from scratch. He's always been very professional, while being hilarious and unflappable at the same time. I passed my test today and i would like to thank him very much for his help.
Learning to drive has been fun and engaging with Dan. I can't thank him enough for getting me through my test with a pass on my first attempt. I would 100% recommend Safe4Life for anyone looking for a reliable place. Thanks again Dan!!!
I can’t say Thankyou enough to Lisa!! Passed 1st Time with 3 driving faults and definitely wouldn’t have done it without her. She never gave up on me and gave me so much confidence in my driving. I had 2 previous instructors from another company and didn’t get on with them at all to a point where I wanted to stop driving, however Lisa was amazing throughout and enjoyed my lessons with her. She never got frustrated with me and is so friendly! I highly recommend! Thankyou so much and I will miss you!!😆🎉🚘xx
Massive thanks to Mark Evans; who I’ve known now for over a year now and he’s not once given up on me. Was driving on and off for a period of the year and passed after three times (third time lucky), he was great and would recommend him to anyone. Cheers Mark!
A huge thankyou to my instructor Claire for helping my pass first time! An amazing driving instructor and so helpful, really recommend! She makes you feel so comfortable and her teaching technique is amazing. I passed my theory first time and today passed my test first time with only 5 minors! So pleased with myself couldn’t of done it without her, thankyou so much x
A massive (albeit belated) thanks to Ian Willetts for all his help getting me to pass my test first time. His teaching style is great, it allows you to pick up things really quickly and gain confidence fast. Didn’t think I’d be able to pass my test in 3 and something months! Really funny guy and if Mr Safe4Life is reading this then I think he s deserves a pay rise!! Thanks again Ian, cinnamon!
A big thank you to Ian Willetts.
42 lesson 4 theory tests and not once did he give up on me.
Passed my test 1st time today.
Thank you for all your help. Will recommend SAFE4life to anyone. 5*
Can't thank Dan enough for helping me pass. I passed first time and I was always comfortable on my lessons. His lessons were always enjoyable and I would definitley recommend to anyone.
Thanks to Jo who helped me to pass my test.
Would like to say a big thankyou to Dave. After three previous instructors not working, dave took me on after he was recommended to me by two friends and my driving improved from there. Dave supported me through my driving and didn’t give up on me despite me failing previously due to my anxiety and nerves in the test. Dave also went about teaching things in different but correct ways until we found what worked for me. I also struggle to pick things up so have to go over it constantly and dave was happy to do so and never lost his patience with me. Overthinking things to an extreme extent especially before test was an issue for me too and dave constantly put my mind at ease and went over things until i was secure i knew them. Can not fault dave in anyway other than a couple of his dad jokes not being up to scratch haha. Lessons were made to be enjoyable and not something i dreaded like i had with previous instructors. Honestly one of the best driving instructors out there if not the best. Will miss you Dave and hopefully see you soon for some motorway lessons :).
Also just a quick thank you to Ian and the company as a whole for being so helpful with everything when i was changing instructors.
Loved every second of my driving lessons, my instructor Jo made me feel welcomed and was lovely from the moment I first stepped into the car. Her patience and comfort made every lesson enjoyable and stress free. She helped me massively from taking me on when I needed to pass within months and she was there every step of the way supporting me to get me through my test and I will be forever grateful!!
A big thank you to claire for helping me pass my test. She always very patient with me and helped build my confidence when i doubted myself. Very understanding and always pushed me when she knew i could manage it. Would definitely recommend safe4life.
Can’t thank Mark enough for getting me to pass 1st time, I couldn’t of done it without you it’s truly amazing in what you do, so greatful for sticking by me threw all the ups and downs. Just a massive thank you to you. Best driving instructor about!!
After feeling like I wasn't progressing with my two previous instructors, I went with Claire and she was amazing from the very start. She has excellent teaching methods and also helped me remain calm for my test. I would 100% recommend her to all those practicing. 🙂
Thank you to Mark Evans for helping me pass my driving test first time. He is a patient and brilliant instructor, and I will recommend to anyone!

Couldn’t of asked for a better instructor, thankyou so much for your time and patience. I would recommend Mark to anybody who wants to learn to drive. Safe4Life is such an amazing company.
Again Mark I appreciate everything you’ve done with all the help and assistance.
Thankyou so much.
Thanks Mark for your all patience, time and commitment!!! It’s finally paid off. See you on the road :).
Today I passed my practical driving test. I am so happy and it wouldn’t have been possible without my amazing instructor jo! The help she gave me was outstanding. The level of detail she went it to was so reassuring and I wouldn’t of wanted it any other way! Honestly so pleased I found safe4life and I will be forever grateful!
My instructor was mark. We had a great laugh every lesson he was a great teacher would recommend him to anyone.
My overall learning to drive with Safe4Life was amazing! I had so much fun learning an everything is so positive. My instructor was Roy, he was calm and always persevered! I passed first time with zero minors!! I would definitely recommend Roy as an instructor if your thinking of taking your driving steps!
Safe4Life is an amazing company!! I had the pleasure of having Ian Haycock as my driving instructor from day one with the under 17 lessons to on the road lessons and he was absolutely great to learn with! He helped me and pushed me to the best of my abilities!! With all his help and support it enabled me to pass my driving test first time!! He has an amazing pass record and I can clearly see why! Would recommend him 100%!!!
Thank you again Ian for everything you have done! Will miss you teaching me!!
Iv just passed with Claire today and she has been so amazing! I can’t recommend her enough, she is so patient but knows when it’s time to push you to the next level and nothings to much hassle. I couldn’t think of anyone better suited for the job and I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else to teach me, she’s an incredible person and driving instructor and I owe her so much!! Would recommend her to everyone and anyone who wants to learn because she makes it fun but always challenging!
Can’t thank Mark enough for teaching me how to drive! Always so patient and made lessons so fun. He made me feel so comfortable and confident while driving and always explained anything you needed to know, 100% recommend, he’s amazing!!!!
5 stars for Mark. My son passed his driving test today and Mark was really patient, thorough and very reliable. He never let him down or changed his lesson times.
Thank you Mark
Mark taught our son. Just wanted to say "Thank You" for being supportive for our son and for the perseverance that you showed throughout. Mark was reliable throughout. There were confidence issues for our son and Mark was so professional ( our eldest son passed with Ian at Safe4life as well). As parents we are so confident of our sons on the road. Thank you. Dave W
Couldn’t thank mark enough for all the support and patience in learning me to drive. Was such a great instructor, explained everything clearly and never gave up with me when I was finding it difficult. He made me feel so comfortable with being on the road. Honestly couldn’t have thanked him enough! I’d highly recommended! He’s great!!
Dave was my driving instructor and I honestly couldn't recommend him enough! I passed first time with only 3 minors and it's all down to him, making me feel ready and prepared for my test. He explains everything clearly, giving you the confidence to drive the car without feeling like your on a driving lesson. I guess the only downside is having to put up with is really embarrassingly bad jokes!
Thanks again Dave, couldn't have done it without you!
Thankyou Mazia for being patient and making me feel so comfortable and safe throughout the course of my driving lessons. Thank you for all your support and making me feel at ease and ensured I was fully prepared for my test. Will miss you!!
i have done my driving lessons with dan for about a year now, and i have just passed my driving test with only 2 minors!!! cant thank him enough! he was always patient with me and made me feel comfortable and safe when i was driving. couldnt have asked for a better
instructor! Thank you Dan xx
Been driving with Paul since my very first lesson and today I passed my driving test first time with only 2 minors. Thank you Paul, couldn't have done it without you!!!
Big thanks to Mark for teaching me to drive! 🙂
Passed my test finally with Dan !
Really patient with me and would reccomend to anyone !
I never had been in a car before learning with Dan he made me feel comfortable and safe.
Really pleased however sad I won’t see him
I was really nervous when I first started lessons, but Claire
made me a lot more confident and made me relax and
take my time with everything. I 100% recommend
Claire as a driving instructor, she’s amazing! I had 10
lessons and then had my test and passed first time!
Thank you so so much Claire 🙂xx
Can't explain how happy and pleased I was to have found an instructor who was patient, understanding and most importantly just a really genuine person who wouldn't mess you about. He was the best person I could have had as he had confidence in me passing and being a safe driver throughout everything and he made me believe in myself more which was amazing. Couldn't recommend a better instructor than Ian, honestly so genuine and lovely. Safe4life all the way, I recommend it to everyone!
mark has been very helpful and patient with teaching me to drive. couldn't of asked for a better instructor. would highly recommed
Thank you Jo for being such an amazing driving instructor, got me through my test with 1 minor!! Highly recommend choosing Jo as an instructor, always very thourough with everything she teaches and makes you feel at ease every lesson. She’s made me into a very confident driver and can’t thank her enough!! She’s the best!! 😁
