Saima was a brilliant instructor - who I would highly recommend - she was extremely knowledgeable, patient and also made the process really enjoyable. Her lessons gave me the confidence and skill to pass first time, and also be a safe newly-qualified driver. Many thanks.

Highly recommended Always pass, such a pleasant experience. Saima especially is extremely patient and helpful, not only with how she teaches but how she helps build confidence on the road. Couldn’t have asked for a better instructor:).

I cannot recommend Always Pass enough. I learnt to drive with the lovely Saima, who is so kind, patient and always so helpful. A previously very anxious learner driver, Saima put me at ease right from the get go. I’ve really enjoyed my lessons, and will really miss our chats. Natalie took me out for my mock test, and again, put me at ease straight away with some great feedback to build on. An all round brilliant experience with a great driving school. Thank you so much for everything!

Absolutely brilliant. Siama was kind, patient and put me at ease.
Since having Saima as a driving instructor she has helped me so much, not only with my ability but confidence on the road, she isn’t just a lovely person but a brilliant instructor and I miss seeing her each week for my lessons since passing my test.

“Fantastic! Natalie is incredibly knowledgable about teaching people to drive! No faffing about, gave me the confidence and belief I could do it from Day 1. Genuinely a nice trusting lady who helped me pass within 3 months of starting to drive with her! I look back and thank her for everything she did for me.”


Bradley Austin

“Sharon Harper is the best driving instructor and I could not recommend her enough to prospective learners. After previously failing my test twice with 2 different driving schools, Sharon rebuilt my confidence and enjoyment in driving and I have recently passed my test thanks to her! Sharon is calm, knowledgable and extremely easy to get on with! Thank you Sharon!”
