I've had an excellent experience learning with the Driving School South West; clear, friendly instructions from start to finish! Gavin, my instructor, was brilliant! I passed my practical this morning with only one minor. I largely attribute the excellent pass to Gavin's experience in understanding what I needed to know to past the test. In addition to this, his hour-long warmup beforehand helped to settle my nerves and get me focused ready to be examined. Thanks, Gavin, I appreciate your efforts. :-) More...

My daughter passed today with Darren from The Driving School SW. She couldn't have been more complimentary about her instructor & has passed faster than any of her friends without rushing through things. She has been taught to be such a good driver that I am genuinely really relaxed for her to be out on the roads on her own now. With The Driving School SW you (or your son/daughter etc) won't just be taught to pass your test, you/they'll be taught how to drive beyond their test which is far more important. Many thanks to Darren for his tuition and Daniel for putting my daughter in Darren's safe pair of hands! More...

Highly recommended Rob Gibson as a driving instructor. After having three other instructors before, Rob was by far the best. I came to Rob wanting to pass before 07/04 and he took on the challenge. Very professional driving instructor. Made me feel comfortable driving and not nervous. My confidence rocketed. Thank you for putting up with my weirdness and constantly talking to myself. Wouldn't have been able to get through it without you as my instructor! More...

I just want to say a big thank you to the Driving School Southwest for helping me pass my driving lesson first time! After having a rocky start with another driving school and feeling I wasn’t getting anywhere I found a few reviews of the Driving School SW and gave them a call. Daniel has been a tremendous teacher. There was never a dull moment and I felt I learnt something new or at least improved on my skills with every lesson. The feedback at the end of every lesson helped also, Dan highlighted what I’d done well and what I needed to work on and we always discussed things such as manoeuvres in-depth before attempting them. There is free Theory tuition as well which was amazing for preparing and revising for Theory test. All in all I cannot recommend the Driving School SW enough. If you are considering taking driving lessons in the Southwest I would definitely say go with them. More...

I did my instructor training with Daniel absolutely brilliant training and he pushed me each week to get me through my test. We had some great fun whilst learning as well as serious times when it was needed. Personally I wouldn't have wanted anyone else to get me through my training with the help and support Daniel gave me was brilliant. It was hard work but it all paid off in the end. More...

I would have no hesitation in recommending Daniel & his instructors at Driving School South West. I have a friend from Brazil who although she already had her licence needed to take a UK test. She doesn't speak much English but she was really well looked after and passed her test with flying colours even though the steering wheel was on the opposite side of the car from what she was used to!
