“I chose to use NearWay on the basis of the overwhelmingly positive reviews I’d read online and now, having passed my B+E  test, I am more than happy to add to that list. I had both Neil and Ian as trainers and found them both to be knowledgeable, skilled instructors who were great company during the training. Having also passed my C test with another company I can safely say this isn’t always the case and it makes a great difference to what can be a stressful experience!

I’d be more than happy to recommend NearWay to anyone else looking to gain their towing entitlement and would like to extend my thanks to Neil and his team.”

Tom Smith, passed his car and trailer test Banbury.
