Rhys Benton Driving Lessons Review

“Last year I passed my B+E trailer test first time with a days training from Nearway and they were amazing. My Son, Rhys turned 17 this year and we got straight on the phone to Nearway, Lucie was chosen to be his instructor and wow what a fun bubbly character and excellent instructor. Rhys enjoyed his lessons with Lucie and soon passed his test, she was extremely flexible as he lives in Essex and was only home certain days.”

Rick Hughes Towing Test

Rick Hughes Trailer Test Review

“I passed my test today with 0 faults and I can wholeheartedly say that this was due to Neil’s excellent training and lovely manner. He made me feel comfortable from the start and gave me lots of confidence in my ability.

I have already recommended you guys to two family members who need training, one who has failed the test twice already and one who needs to take the test.

The time I spent training was well worth it and not only helped me pass my test but has given me confidence to tow my caravan. Thanks again.”

Rick Hughes from Wellingborough – passed first time with 0 faults having never towed before.

I trained with Neil to become a driving instructor. His extensive knowledge and experience helped me no end. Neil's kind and patient manor makes a great learning environment for anyone. Highly recommend to anyone who is thinking of training as an ADI.

Thank you to everyone at Nearway Driver Training for helping me pass me B+E test first time. From the first phone call I was told exactly what I would need to do based on my experience (none!). Neil was great during the course helping me relax and prepare for exactly what to expect during the test.

Will NorgateWill Norgate

Thank you to nearway for training me on B+E. The whole team were friendly and helpful, massive shout to Ian who was fantastic. Would definitely recommend the day and half course even if you can drive with a trailer, has enhanced my normal driving abilities already. Only reason I wont be doing my C1 with you guys is I would just go for full C license which unfortunately you don't do otherwise I would definitely book with you guys.
Highly recommended

Jade PickettJade Pickett

Had an amazing experience at Nearway Driving such friendly staff and really relaxed. Was quite nervous on the way to the training but felt very relaxed once we got driving.
