Lessons with Neil were always fun and he is very constructive, the star system used to show development is brilliant, as you know each week how much you have learnt and how close to your test you are. I would recommend Nearway Driver Training to anyone!”
Sam Glover, passed her driving test in on 4th July 2012

“I would HIGHLY recommend Nearway Driver Training if you are considering learning to drive. Thanks to Neil’s excellent teaching, and no doubt his incredible patience, I recently passed my test with a perfect score, something I never would have expected to be able to do! What’s more, as someone who had failed a first test years ago and had not gone anywhere near the driving seat of a car for a long time due to my hate/fear of driving, the most invaluable thing Neil did for me was to give me the confidence to drive and – most importantly – to actually enjoy it.”
Annie Crook, passed on her first attempt with us, with no faults!

“I thought NearWay Driver Training was an amazing service, all the lessons were relaxed and there was no pressure.. I got to choose when to have my lessons and if they were to be 1 hr or 2 hrs. NearWay Driver training gave me the choice to start my lessons from where ever i was, home, town and school, also being able to finish the lesson in town or at home, that was very useful and nice of Neil. I have recommended Neil to many of my friends at school, who in the future will be learning to drive.”
