I had my first driving test yesterday and passed with only one minor. Safe4life has been amazing, especially my instructor Jo Blakemore who has been the most amazing teacher. She is beyond patient, makes you feel so comfortable in the car and will always break things down for you in a way where you will understand. I couldn’t recommend safe4life any more, especially when coming from a previous instructor to Jo, the difference is amazing! Thank you so much safe4life, and thank you Jo!
I would like to leave a massive thank you to Kaye from off road lessons to on road lessons you have given my daughter the confidence she needed to pass her driving test today. You have been so patient and calming through the process and I cannot thank you enough. If anyone is looking for lessons I would recommend Kaye at Safe4Life all day long thank you again
I took my driving lessons with Ian Willetts and can say I am more then pleased with the standards. I passed first time all thanks to his help. I highly recommend him and Safe4Life for first time drivers I felt confident with my driving and knew if I made any mistakes it would be fine and I would be shown how to not make the same mistakes again. Will be recommending to every new driver I know!
For anyone in need of a driving instructor, I strongly recommend Aitha. She built confidence in me and is patient, kind and brilliant.I struggled so much trying to pass with other instructors as soon as she took me in , I felt comfortable and confident in my driving and therefore enjoyed my driving lessons.All areas I did in practice came up in my driving test today which resulted to me passing. She helped tackle my nerves today which is why I strongly recommend to go with Aitha. Thank you safe4life for a amazing instructor.
Would highly recommend Trudy, I have passed my test with just 1 minor. Trudy is very reliable, always accommodating, patient and professional. Thank you Trudy!
I passed my test first time today thanks to Kaye! She is an amazing instructor and I I would definitely recommend her and safe4life.
The Safe4Life driving instructors are outstanding! I highly recommend them! After learning with Athia, my Safe 4 Life instructor who I passed first time with, and an independent instructor before hand, I can confirm that Safe4Life are the best instructors around. Every instructor keeps a report card, recording payments and the manoeuvres/ situations the learners have practiced and are confident with which I found very helpful and trustworthy. Based on my experience of learning with Athia, the instructors are patient, kind and lovely people who are incredible teachers. Thankyou very much for your tutoring over the past year, your patience and your support. If you opt to learn with Safe4Life, it's the best decision you could ever make in terms of your driving journey!
I passed my test first time and it was all down to how great a instructor Emily is. She was very professional and good at her job, but also kind and patient, I couldn't recommend Emily and Safe4Life enough!
Passed my test first time today all thanks to Emily! Honestly couldn’t have asked for a better teacher, she was so patient with me and helped me to understand everything! Such a lovely person also. Would 100% recommend safe4life to anyone wanting to learning to drive!
I had a first time pass today but without Trudy’s help it would not be possible! She is very patient and very friendly and all the lessons were so enjoyable. She made my learning experience the best it could be and I can’t thank her enough. Highly recommend Trudy for anyone looking to learn to drive and have the upmost confidence while do so!! Thank you again Trudy!!
I had a great time being taught how to drive in England thanks to Safe4Life. I emigrated here form Portugal and was very nervous about driving because I wasn't used to the left side driving. I have since been taking the car to and back from work (at least until the pandemic hit). Thank you again for your help and patience Mr Paul Cresswell, cheers!
I would 100% recommend Emily from Safe4Life to anyone who wants a great experience learning how to drive.
I had zero experience before my first lesson, I hadn't even sat in the driving seat of a car before and I was so anxious I would look silly. Emily put me right at ease and made me feel so comfortable, I made so much progress on that first lesson it gave me a massive confidence boost. She has been amazing throughout and is such a genuinely nice person! The whole experience has been positive and I have looked forward to my lessons every week.
I know I would never have passed my test if it wasn't for her encouragement. Thank you so much Emily!
Roy is a class instructor, very patient and dedicated to get you passed
For anyone in need of a driving instructor, I recommend Trudy as she has brilliant patience and explains thoroughly everything that is needed of you. I felt extremely comfortable right from the first lesson and gave me lots of confidence in my ability to drive. This all helped me pass first time!
Would like to say a massive thankyou to mark for helping me pass my driving test and always making me feel comfortable behind the wheel, always trying to boost confidence and always making me laugh, got me through it very quick despite having to work round a pandemic, highly recommend for anyone looking to pass there test quickly
Would recommend Safe4life to anyone willing to learn how to drive. Also a big thanks to Mark could not ask for a better driving instructor. Always felt comfortable with him and very positive towards your driving ability! He filled me with so much confidence in able to drive, top bloke!
I couldn't recommend Safe4Life enough, especially my instructor Emily!
When I first started lessons again after being with a different instructor I had very little confidence in myself as a driver but with Emily's constant reassurance and encouragement I became comfortable with driving. I started to learn because driving was convenient but with Emily I found I really enjoyed driving and looked forward to my lessons each week.
Due to my disability it has taken me longer to learn how to drive and at times I struggled but even when I gave up on myself a few times Emily never did, she was patient with me and remained positive. She has pushed me when I've needed it to get me to see what I'm capable of and instilled so much confidence in me which I am so grateful for.
If you want an instructor that is patient, supportive and puts you at ease whilst providing you with top quality teaching then I couldn't recommend Emily enough.
I passed my driving test a few days ago thanks to Emily and I will always appreciate the influence she has had on me as a driver and as a person!
I would like to say a massive thank you to Lisa for helping me pass my driving test first time with just two minors!
I have had bad past experiences with driving and I was very anxious when I began lessons with Lisa. However, she did an amazing job at helping me stay calm and focused. She gave me all the encouragement I needed to help me pass first time, something I didn’t believe was possible until I started lessons with Lisa!
She is a kind, caring and very funny woman who helped put me at ease every lesson I had. If you are looking for an automatic instructor to help you pass, I would highly recommend Lisa
Thank you again for all your support along my journey!
Passed 1st time with Roy, he is a brilliant driving instructor would recommend to anyone. Felt comfortable and safe always positive and a great attitude.
Thank you so much Roy
I highly recommend safe4life especially Dave, he is a great instructor who fills you with confidence from your first lesson. He pushes you to achieve your full capability whilst making lessons fun and time fly by. I passed first time with a single minor all thanks to the support and encouragement of Dave.
I have nothing but great things to say about my Safe4Life journey, learning under Lisa right up to my first ever driving test which I passed with only a single minor! Something I never would have expected to do in a million years due to a mix of anxiety and previous injury.
Lisa was a thorough, professional, diligent yet always positive and upbeat instructor, instilling me with both the confidence and knowledge to make progress with my driving to test standard, whilst also making the learning process an enjoyable experience!
I cannot thank her and Safe4Life enough; as someone who previously had lessons and learning interrupted quite long term by injury and illness, to get the confidence boost and positive ‘can do’ attitude on a regular basis, coupled with a fantastic standard of teaching, took me to passing on my first attempt and with just the one minor as mentioned.
Thoroughly recommended, particularly for anyone apprehensive or nervous about driving; you won’t regret it! I know I don’t! 😁👍🏻
Passed 2nd time and cannot thank Mark enough for always being so patient and calm.
Would recommend to anyone, especially if you’re nervous like myself as he gave me the confidence I needed.
Can’t thank Roy enough. Always made me feel comfortable and has always gave me the confidence I needed to pass my test. He really is the best driving instructor around.
Thanks John, Brilliant instructor, highly recommend
I Passed with John Morgan
Passed my driving test first time. All thanks to John.
He was a brilliant instructor and he helped me so much with the things I was struggling with. I always felt comfortable on lessons with John.
I would definitely recommend John to anybody.🚗
Passed my driving test first time, all thanks to Nakeeb! He was an amazing instructor and he helped me so much. I always felt comfortable and safe, and enjoyed every single lesson! Can’t thank him enough! Definitely recommend Nakeeb 🙂
I can’t thank Steve enough for all his help and support with my driving! When I first started learning I was quite nervous but Steve ensured all topics were thoroughly covered so I felt comfortable and safe when driving and confident in my ability when completing my test. He is very patient and understanding & I have gained so much confidence through my lessons! If you are looking to learn to drive I would 100% recommend Steve!☺️
Passed my test first time with Trudy! She’s been amazing, explained things really well and went through anything I didn’t understand as many times as I needed. I can’t thank her enough and would definitely recommend!!!
I couldn't recommend Roy enough as a driving instructor. He always made me feel confident from my very first lesson and tailored my lessons to any routes or maneuvers I was struggling with. Roy was also flexible around my college and work timetable. Through having Roy as an instructor I found that I enjoyed learning to drive, which was all down to him! Thank you :))
Roy taught our daughter (Sophie) to drive over the last 12 months. We as Sophie’s parents always found Roy to be Punctual, Polite and Accurate in his assessment of our daughters driving ability. Our daughter always spoke in a positive manner whilst she talked about her driving Lessons. We would highly recommend Roy to anyone looking for a driving instructor.
Passed my driving test first time after 22 hours with Trudy Rock. Couldn't thank her enough for what she did for me. Fantastic driving instructor with a lot of patience. Would highly recommend to anyone out there looking to start their lessons.
Absolutely lovely instructor and really helped me with my journey towards passing! She a brilliant teacher and all this helped towards me passing first time with only 1 minor! Such a lovely and kind person aswell made my lessons really enjoyable.
Thankyou so much!!
Absolutely amazing instructor!! Really
Helped me and I passed first time with only 1 minor! Could not recommend more! Very supportive caring and I really enjoyed my time with her 🙂 Thankyou very much!
I had Paul as my instructor. I passed first time with only four minors. Great instructor, patient but also knew my abilities and helped me see them. Lessons were easy going without any pressure. Well priced and didn’t drag out lesson just to get more in but helped get the test done and passed. Would recommend lessons with Paul!
I had Trudy as my instructor and I honestly couldn’t of asked for anyone better. Very patient and I definitely wouldn’t of passed without her. I will miss our lessons together. 100% recommend.
I had Roy as my instructor. I really enjoyed my lessons as he made me feel so relaxed and confident from the very start. I couldn’t be happier by passing first time, he is always there to help whenever and I couldn’t thank him enough!! I would definitely recommend.
Thanks to Roy for teaching my daughter to a very high standard so she passed first time! She loved every minute of it. Would definitely recommend him.
Really good driving instructor, very thorough, was able to pass my driving test on my first try due to his teachings.
Great instructor, great price, nice, friendly and very educational. Passed first time with 4 minors all thanks to Trudy, cant thank her enough. 100% recommend safe 4 life.
I had Jo as my instructor. Jo helped me gain a lot of confidence whilst driving, which resulted in me passing first time. Jo explained everything really well and made sure I was comfortable before moving on.
I had Mark as my instructor from start to finish and he made it so easy to learn. He never pressured me or shouted. He also didn’t try and keep me on for as long as possible and waste my money. Mark is a great instructor and learning with him is a great use of your money.
After failing my first test I had booked a second test. My own instructor did not manage to take me for the test however Bev, stepped in and helped me pass my second test. I passed with five minors, but owe it all to Bev for helping me learn the car and some technical points within the 3 lessons I had with her. Amazing service, would definitely reccomend!!
Roy has been Brilliant and so supportive through the whole process even though it was interrupted by Corona. A fantastic Instructor and always flexible to meet your requirements. I would never have passed first time with a different instructor I am sure. In fact his last 6 students all past first time. Would not hesitate to recommend him you will not get better. Thanks Roy for all of your help and support.
After being with another instructor and having several tests,
I decided to go with Safe4life. My instructor Dave was honestly the best. He helped to rebuild my confidence and helped me manage my nerves when it came to test day.
After being messed around by another company Dan had helped me go from a nervous wreck who asked wayy to many questions to someone who is 100% more confident and independent. Because of Dan I passed my driving test first time yesterday with only two minors!!! Which I would have never imagined happening! Thankyou so much Dan!!👍🏻 Would highly recommend !!!
Thanks Paul, for being an amazing driving instructor and helping me pass first time, would highly recommend.
Amazing driving school with dedicated and caring driving instructors who genuinely give 100% to their students. I cannot thank Kaye Webb enough for the kind support and guidance she gave me for my lessons, including support through the uncertainty of the pandemic, which allowed me to pass first time. Kaye's calm approach to teaching, which sets you up to gain skills easily and at the pace you are comfortable with, is fantastic. She always does her very best to ensure you are comfortable and happy, as well as teaching at an outstanding standard. Thank you!
Having failed my first test with another instructor then having a break from learning I eventually started lessons again with Kaye from safe4life. I felt as though I was learning so much more and quicker with Kaye than from my previous instructor and managed to pass my first test with Kaye without any faults. She’s a excellent instructor and teacher I would recommend to anyone looking to learn.
I got a first time pass thanks to Roy, he is a brilliant instructor who is always happy to help with anything I needed. I have been having lessons with him right from the under 17s lessons on the Netherton site to the moment I passed my test, the teaching was excellent and he was so patient with any mistakes I made. Absolute legend, thanks Roy!!
Thanks Paul, Amazing teacher for my test and I passed first time, I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to drive, look no further than safe4life. Honestly feel so confident now in my driving abilities.
Thanks Mark. Really patient and understanding instructor who is the reason I passed first time!!
Huge thank you to both Ian & Lisa as I passed first time due to both of them. Would highly recommend Safe 4 Life due to reasonably priced lessons, excellent teaching and high levels of flexibility when it comes to lesson times.
Passed my driven test 1st time thanx to Mark Evans..couldnt recommend anyone else more...thanx Mark for bein so patient and calmin..i couldnt have done it without you...from never even sittin the drivers side of a car before to passing 1st time within 15 months shows good you are...massive thanx again Mark xx
Highly recommend Jo, passed first time with only a couple of minors with her help and I wouldn’t of done it without her! She’s lovely, calm and helpful and makes sure you understand what your doing before moving you on, built up my confidence loads with driving. I will miss having my lessons with her now because she is so lovely. Thank you Jo!
Passed my test first time today. Thanks for everything Emily from the off-road lessons to picking me up at 6.30am today for my test and being very patient with sorting out my dodgy steering!
John Morgan has been an outstanding instructor he is easy to get on with and has helped me out massively. Every lesson John would push me further to better my driving. He is a top bloke and helped me to pass my test. He is calm and is always confident in my ability he will never put pressure on you. I always felt calm and confident when on lessons with John. He is a great instructor and would definitely recommend.
Roy in my opinion is one of if not the best driving instructor with the company he was always willing do any manoeuvres or routes I wanted to do and always asked if there was anything I was unsure about and I owe it to Roy he got me a pass first time with only one minor it was great to have lessons with him and would highly recommend him
Kaye has been the best driving instructor and I couldn’t recommend her more or this driving company. She has given me the most experience of real life driving whilst also providing the best lessons I could ask for. She has made sure I feel safe on the roads, behind the wheel and in any situation possible. As she says hit the reset button, pause, regear and focus on the situation ahead; and in this case the situation is choosing Kaye and Safe 4 Life as your driving instructor. She has made me feel so relaxed on the roads and I am more than happy to recommend Kaye to anyone wanting to learn how to drive!! Thank you for helping me pass first time with yourself!!!
John has been the greatest driving instructor, after starting with him for under 17s lessons and then continuing with road lessons, John has been nothing but kind, understanding and confident in my ability to drive when I haven't necessarily always been confident of myself. John's calm teaching style and his friendly and approachable manner have meant I have always felt at ease during lessons and has helped me pass my test, after having a 3 month break due to COVID. I am more than happy to suggest anyone goes with John for their lessons as I am confident he is one of the best! Thanks John.
I passed my test first time because of Emily and how patient she is! She’s pushed me so much and has made me more confident in myself! Would recommend her to everyone!
I can’t recommend mark enough, going from the most nervous driver ever to passing first time with no faults wouldn’t have been possible without marks dedication to pushing me to never give up and extreme patience. Mark is brilliant at what he does and takes pride in all of his pupils. I’m so glad I had mark as my instructor he always put me at ease and never shouted at me once, he’s always up for a laugh which made my whole experience of learning how to drive a lot less scary and more enjoyable, I can’t thank you enough
I had Jo, who was an absolute legend in helping me pass my test and teaching me how to drive.
I would like to say a massive thank you to Trudy for getting me through my test in these difficult times. I would recommend Safe4Life to anyone who is looking for a great driving school with really understanding instructors.
I had Theresa as my driving instructor and I couldn't recommend her enough. She was so patient with me in my learning and empowered me to progress. She also made me see that I do have strong points and that I could do it, while providing the best chats ever.
She supported me all along the way and provided words of encouragement when I felt I couldn't do it.
Thank you Theresa, there's no amount of words I can use to thank you.
I'd highly recommend
Although I haven’t yet passed my test due to Covid-19 postponing the date, I would like to acknowledge how consistent, understanding and overall amazing Emily is! She’s so considerate and is such a good driving instructor; I can’t wait to get back to driving and I am going to miss my driving lessons when I pass my test! If you are looking for a patient and helpful driving instructor, I would definitely recommend Emily as her level of professionalism and kindness shows in every single lesson 🙂
Kaye is the key to passing your driving test.
After having bad experiences with driving instructors (one had even told me I should try learning in an automatic because I was struggling with the gears), I was introduced to Kaye. She has the patience, passion and professionalism to teach people at their own pace. I found other instructors were comparing the speed at which I was progressing to that of other students, which made me feel as though there was something wrong with me! Kaye is a good instructor who adapted to my preferred teaching style and gave concise and clear instructions to follow. Kaye was always confident that I would pass and helped me through with both her knowledge and sense of humour.
She was reliable and flexible whenever I booked lessons. I have now passed my test after the third attempt (my nerves got the best of me a few times) and I am now a confident driver. I would strongly recommend Kaye to help you stay safe for life. Thank you Kaye Webb.
Thank you very much safe4life and my driving instructor Mr Hassan. He was
always on time, kept his patience, I passed my exam first time and i am a confident driver now. Definately recommend.
Brilliant instructor really patient and encouraged me on my weak points, didn't waste time if extra lessons were not needed before my test.
Would recommend Mark to anybody learning to drive, thank you!
I found learning to drive a great experience with the help of Claire.
I always felt safe and was able to trust her through, what can be a scary experience! I would recommend Claire to anyone who wants calm, friendly and safe driving lessons.
Just wanna say big thanks to Dan for getting me passed so quickly after being messed around by another company, Dan is a great guy and very helpful couldn't of had a better instructor
I just want to thank Mandy for helping me pass my driving test. I would highly reccommend her as she is patient but she makes learning fun.
Thank you so much to Mandy for helping me through my test and my driving lessons. I seriously wouldn’t have the confidence to drive without your support! I started with Mandy on the under 17s site at the age of 14 and continued to progress with my lessons on the road. I appreciate Mandy so much for explaining to me how I can be the safest driver possible. Mandy is such a friendly, kind and caring driving instructor who will always bring the best in every individual that she teaches. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking at starting their driving lessons! Thank you Mandy!!
Amazing driving school, would recommend Athia
He was a really good teachers that always worked on my lower points so that everything would be up to standard and really helped me pass my driving test first time
Best instructor I could’ve asked for. Great all round instructor who was patient and knew what roads to go on to push me without making me feel anxious or out of my depth. Regularly asked show me, tell me questions to make sure I was confident with them. Roy’s funny, has a genuine interest in you and your long term driving skill and I couldn’t recommend him enough! Thanks Roy!
A huge thankyou to Mark. He is a great instructor and help me get through my test, passing first time!!!! Would recommend to everyone as he really does care about all his students! Thanks Mark
I had a great time with safe 4 life learning to drive, my instructor was David Patrick who was always great with me, very fair and easy to learn with. I highly recommend safe 4 life for anyone wanting to learn to drive and not only did I learn to drive. dave almost like a mate and will always give you advice about anything your unsure about and help you out👍👍finally I’m very grateful of Dave personally for all of it, thanks again mate.
I was taught by Dave for a long time. He is an incredible instructor, teaching you all the vital driving techniques while making sure your lessons are fun and he is famous for his terrible "dad jokes." I could not have asked for a better driving instructor. 100% recommend him.
Highly recommend safe for life especially Dave who’s very funny and an all round great instructor. He fills you with confidence from the first lesson which is what your looking for when starting to drive
Having had lessons with 2 other companies before safe4life, I can truly say Paul was the best instructor I have had! Thanks so much for everything you taught me, having patience & making me believe in myself enough to take my test & pass first time! I would highly recommend safe4life, & definitely Paul! Forever will I be grateful for everything you have done.
Roy has been an amazing instructor through and through, not only does he care about the skill but he does truly care about the feelings of his students. Really don’t think I could pass with other instructors!! Really recommend him for anyone who wants to learn how to drive (well)). Thanks Roy!
Thank you Shaz, it’s been a long time but i’m truly thankful for all your help and getting me ready to be able to pass - especially first time!! Very patient and a welcoming person! thank you!
Absolutely loved my lessons with Ian Willetts, passed first time with hardly any faults. He taught me everything correctly and enjoyed the time. Would definitely recommend Ian
Thanks to Claire being the most patient and understanding driving instructor ever my son has passed his driving test today. I think it’s been that little bit harder for him as he has Asperger’s syndrome but Claire has been truly amazing and would definitely recommend her.
Trudy has been an amazing driving instructor, she is so patient and explains everything really clearly, wouldn't have been able to pass my test without her would highly recommend!!
It’s been a long journey but many thanks to Claire for all the help and helping me past my driving test for the first time I would 100% recommend Claire as a driving instructor she’s amazing!!!💗
Very patient instructor does not give up on you. thank you Athiya!
Great driving instructor , had a couple of instructors before Trudy ,she is amazing so patient and really explains everything would recommend her to anyone. Have now passed my driving test.
Claire has been amazing and would never have passed without her help, would 100% percent recommend her and can’t thank her enough for everything she has done!
If you’re looking for an instructor, I’d highly recommend Bev! Her style of teaching allows you to get the maximum time behind the wheel which was important for me to gain confidence and experience on the road. Under her guidance, I was able to pass my test in under 4 months and become a confident and safe driver. Thank you Bev!
Recommend safe4life! I had Dan, he is a great instructor and brings a calming, positive attitude which really helped in daunting situations.
I want to say a huge thank you to Athia my amazing driving instructor. Despite my nerves and meltdowns having Athia sat next to me with her calming presence enabled me to pass my test first time!!!!!!! She was truly amazing. I was a very nervous driver when I started and now I would consider myself a confident driver! This is definitely the instructor for all those nervous drivers out there. Thank you Athia! Xx
A huge thanks to Emily for learning me how to drive and enabling me to pass my test first time!!! I couldn’t have done it without her, she has been there for me through everything and motivated me when I didn’t think I could do it. She always made me feel like I could do it and whenever I made mistakes she always was patient and understanding and always gave the best advice. She is the most patient, caring and lovely instructor you can get and it’s been a pleasure to learn with her as I wouldn’t of done it without her! Miss her already and I definitely recommend you all book with Emily!
I would definitely recommend Safe4life, i had Bev who is such a lovely instructor, she was easy to get on with and very patient, when she knew i could do it she really pushed me and i gained so much confidence, i had a total of 15 1 hour lessons before taking my test although i did fail on my 1st test as i let my nerves get the better me and i kept on over thinking thing's, but Bev told me to book it again which i did and it was 13 day's later and i passed i am so over the moon, and i can't thank my instructor enough because without her this wouldn't of been possible, Thanks Bev see you on the road soon 😊
Massive thank you to Shazia for being so patient with me and helping me so so much to pass my test first time. Best instructor I could’ve asked for. Would 100% recommend.
Massive thank you to Dave for teaching me to drive! Put me at ease in my first lesson and given me such a positive experience learning to drive! Fantastic teacher! I will miss him a lot especially the dad jokes!
Dave is the best driving instructor on this planet
Massive thank you to Athia for helping me pass my test. She knew this meant a lot to me and helped me all the way through. Massive support along the way even when things wasn’t going as planned. A really great instructor with so much patience. Great instructor that would build your confidence in driving and making you feel comfortable. It’s been a pleasure, I highly recommend her as an instructor! Once again thank you much!
Mark has been a brilliant driving instructor! He is always positive, simpathtic and understanding when making mistakes, I definitely would not have passed without him. Thank you so much Mark for not giving up even when I made silly mistakes 😂
Thank you to Teresa H for everything that you have done for me and helping me through my theory and driving test. You are a fantastic teacher and I will be recommending you to family and friends.
