“The main reason I chose Independent Driving School was because I found them by using Google for the top driving schools in Bournemouth as I was new to the area.
I liked the look of the independent driving school so I went with them for my lessons whilst I was at university. Which I’m so glad I did as I was able to pass first time, my instructor Darren (who I highly recommend) was amazing and helped me to become more confident with hill starts and driving on dual carriageways.
The advice I would offer someone learning to drive or thinking of taking their driving test is make sure you are comfortable with the car and the instructor as it will make the learning experience more enjoyable.
There is also no rush to take your test but when you do make sure you trust your own driving skills and are comfortable on the road.”
“The main reason I chose Independent Driving School was when I noticed other people’s good reviews and decided to go with them.
My driving instructor was Matt Hitt. It was only last year in September when I wanted to progress and get more independent that I came to Independent Driving School and got given Matt. I’m proud to say I made the right decision.
He was very flexible working around my difficult work pattern and catered to what I was after. A very friendly, supportive guy I would recommend him to anyone who is wanting to learn to drive any day.
If he noticed any mistake, he will guide you through it so it won’t happen a second time… I don’t think I can come up with anything that can be improved really.
I would like to thank Matt for being patient and supportive when it comes to learning to drive.”
“The main reason I chose Independent Driving School was because two years after I started driving, I had gone through two instructors and moved to a new area. Desperate to pass my test before going to Uni, I found Independent Driving after a Google search.
It took just one lesson with Darren to know I was in safe hands – he was the first instructor that seemed to have confidence in me and it made all the difference.
Suddenly, I felt ready, capable and able to learn. I was really intimidated by manoeuvres before but now it all seemed to come naturally.
Darren is great, patient, calm and hugely constructive with his feedback. Lessons seemed to fly by.
Darren’s teaching means that now, I don’t just know how to pass a driving test, but I know how to be a good driver. I would highly recommend!”
