I can't recommend Steve Rapson highly enough! He recently helped my son pass his practical driving test first time around. Steve's teaching style was excellent. He was patient, clear, and incredibly knowledgeable. He made sure my son grasped all the necessary skills and built his confidence on the road. His approach was perfect, balancing encouragement with constructive feedback. Thanks to Steve's expertise, my son felt completely prepared for the test. We're so grateful for his guidance and support! If you're looking for a fantastic driving instructor in Tilehurst, look no further than Steve Rapson from Always Pass Driving School.

I highly recommend Alvon as a driving instructor. As a complete beginner, I found his pragmatic approach and exceptional patience invaluable. He was also very considerate, rescheduling lessons whenever needed throughout my driving journey. Alvon's clear instruction and insightful observations helped me learn effectively, and I passed my practical test on the first try! He even helped calm my nerves on the day of the test, boosting my confidence which is key to passing.

I would highly recommend Always Pass. Saima is an amazing instructor who is patient, kind and helpful. I came to Always Pass from another driving school, and was so anxious learning to drive; Saima helped me to feel at ease and adapted her explanations to suit my learning style. She has given me confidence in my driving ability and ensured that I am a safe new driver. Thank you!

“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.”

“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!”
