I decided to go with Adrian after reading his excellent Google reviews and it was the best thing I did. I had had two previous instructors over the last few years and I never thought I would be in a position to even book my driving test, let alone pass first time with zero faults. I was a complete nervous wreck and with my previous instructors, I literally used to fill sick before my lessons as I hated driving so much. With Adrian, however, I used to look forward to my lessons and for the first time ever, I felt calm and actually enjoyed driving. He installed confidence in me, which I never thought would be possible. Also, previously, I really struggled with the manoeuvres and it would take me several attempts to do each one. He made them seem so simple and I got them straight away each time. Thank you again Adrian, it’s all down to you that I passed! More...

If you got Adrian as your driving instructor then you’re in the best hands. I’m a deaf person, I was looking for a driving instructor who can teach deaf students and communicate aswell. I’ve tried several driving instructors and none has met my expectations but then I came across Adrian. He told me he has taught one deaf person before and understands how it works by communicating and instructing to drive. So I went with him, hoping for the best and he is an amazing driving instructor who would push you to do better, make you believe in yourself, and know that you are capable of doing this. He used hand gestures to direct me so I know where I should be going as I can’t hear him when I’m driving. I lipread so the good thing about Adrian is he’s very patient, calm and good at what he does. When I’ve booked my test, he ensured me that I can do this and there’s no doubt I shouldn’t pass. I’m glad to say I’ve passed first time and it was very emotional for me despite being an deaf person, I did it. All thanks to Adrian. So if you’re looking for a driving instructor then go for Adrian, I promise you that you won’t regret this More...

Adrian has been an incredible driving instructor. He made driving seem simple and straightforward by explaining everything well. He worked around my timetable and was flexible when organising lessons and the lessons were really fun because he has a good sense of humour. He is a unique driving instructor, and I’m incredibly lucky to have met him and work with him to obtain my deriving license quickly and with lots of skillful knowledge. I cannot recommend him highly enough. :D:D:D More...

I was recommended Adrian by couple of my friends and for all I can say it was all worth. He has been a great tutor and helped me in every aspect during the driving lessons I took, specially boosting my confidence and knowing all the grey areas of improvement. Overall it has been a great experience.I must mention he is really patient throughout the course and a thorough professional. I would definitely recommend him further. More...

I was novice when I started with Adrian.. I had no idea what I was I doing, but he got me confident on the road in no time. . Even though I felt I was not ready he asked me to book a test in the next month and said I would be ready then. I did my test today, and I passed . If you want to pass your driving test, I highly recommend Adrian, great instructor. More...

So I had one previous instructor before Adrian and it was a very bad experience as he said I was ready for the test when I really wasn't. I ended up failing my first test with 10+ minors and some dangerous driving faults. I came into the first lesson with Adrian being a very nervous driver, having rubbish clutch control, not knowing how to parallel park and not using my mirrors at all. From the first lesson with Adrian I felt comfortable as he's very easy going and has a good teaching style. During lessons, my confidence quickly built and due to the friendly environment and I found myself under less pressure when driving. Adrian is also very patient unlike my last instructor with helps improve the learning process.If I didn't understand something he would explain it in a cal and friendly way till I understood .When it came to the test day I was a bit nervous but Adrian reassured me that if I keep calm i'll pass and I did with no faults. If you want to pass first time or had a bad experience with another instructor, there aren't many better than Adrian. Passing my test was a huge weight of my shoulders and I have Adrian to thank for it. More...

I had failed my test twice before learning with Adrian, and had no confidence in my driving whatsoever. Thankfully Adrian managed to turn that around I was able to pass my test, which I thought was never going to happen! He was very patient with me and had great, easy-to-remember tips for the manoeuvres. Thanks, Adrian! More...

I started lessons with Adrian and he is such a great teacher, he told me to be calm and relax which I had a very big problem in doing. That helped to improve my ability to learn.He had confidence in me, more than I had in myself and over the time of learning to drive, he told me I was ready. So i booked my test and he prepared me for it and whoops I passed :).If your looking for an instructor that will not shout, be too strick or easy to talk to, Halifax Driving School is the school for you. I was very comfortable and that helped me to pass because I had one of the best instructor. More...

I've been having lessons on and off with various instructors for about 10 years and always gave up because of my severe anxiety in lessons and general fear of being behind the wheel. Adrian helped me overcome this and achieve what I thought was impossible, a first time pass!! He constantly gives you feedback during your lessons, nips bad habits in the bud and pushes you to be a confident, safe driver as opposed to just "test ready". He is reliable and fun to learn with - he has some great travelling stories!! I highly recommend him, especially if you have anxiety or are a nervous driver! Thank you Adrian! More...

Adrian! Couldn't ask for a better driving instructor, he didn't only teach me to drive but taught me to be a confident driver! After being nervous about learning to drive it was lovely to meet him and be put at ease immediately! He has the best sense of humour and I couldn't recommend him enough!! More...

I originally contacted Halifax Driving School while on maternity leave and having some very unsuccessful lessons (about 5 lessons) with another provider. Adrian rang me straight away and kindly said he would be able to meet my very unrealistic expectations... I told Adrian I needed to learn how to drive and I wanted to pass my test asap. I had 8 weeks before I returned to work and I needed to pass so I could do the usual commute (this time including the baby!) Adrian seemed very calm and kindly agreed to teach me. After the 1st lesson Adrian told me to book my test for 8 weeks time and I crammed in 2 lessons a week. My test fast approached and to my complete shock/surprise I passed... first time! I honestly can not thank Adrian enough for supporting me with this. Adrian is honest, fair, calm, knowledgeable, flexible and easy to talk! Thank you. More...

Adrian is an absolutely fantastic instructor. Helped to prepare me and build my confidence to end up passing my test first time. Great guy with a huge sense of humour who helped me feel relaxed when driving and eventually leading me to pass first time. Genuinely couldn't recommend Adrian enough. More...

After having a pretty awful experience with a previous instructor I really hesitated even continuing learning to drive at all. .. that was until I found Adrian. From the very first lesson I had with him I knew I had got lucky. His relaxed approach to teaching really calms any nerves, unlike many other instructors he has all the patience in the world which definitely helps as learning is scary enough. I always looked forward to my driving lessons with Adrian as he is just generally a really lovely person and an amazing teacher, his methods of teaching are honestly incredible and I learnt so much in such a short space of time. Today I passed my driving test first time with only 4 minors and this truly is down to all the help of Adrian, I cannot recommend him enough. Will definitely miss our random conversations and jokes- made the early Monday mornings worth it. If you're looking for a calm, approachable and all round great instructor- Adrian is the guy! Absolute top geezer :) x More...

I would like to recommend Adrian to all people new to driving or wanting to refresh their driving lessons. I think it goes without saying , that as a new driver, looking for an Instructor who is within our budget, able to accomodate our busy schedules,- (regardless of seasons) , and more importantly, able to understand us as and our own learning curves - Adrian scores the highest! He is on-point, very cheerful and takes no time in understanding your difficulties, and works on them immediately. Instructors like this are not easily found , and this one in particular is a diamond!! दो तरह के शिक्षक होते हैं: वो जो आपको इतना भयभीत कर देते हैं कि आप हिल ना सकें, और वो जो आपको पीछे से आपको से थोडा सा थपथपा देते हैं और आप आसमान छू लेते हैं। - Thank you Adrian!

Adrian is simply the best! Today after I passed my test I immediately thought of places that I would drive to from tomorrow! That's how confident I feel. He taught me well. But most importantly he helped me to be relaxed right before the test when my anxiety was starting to take over. He is knowledgeable, patient, calm and funny. His sense of humour can put you at ease. He has more than 15 years of experience in this field and you know this from the first session you take with him. I wholeheartedly recommend him.Many many thanks Adrian. Pari More...

I am so happy !!! I passed first time ! With only 2 minors. After having two unprofessional and rude driving instructors, I had almost lost hope. When I called Halifax driving school, I was answered by a friendly voice by the name of Adrian. He seemed keen to help. I appreciated his sympathetic tone as I shared my awful experiences with him. Adrian always conducted himself in a professional manner. He was punctual polite and possessed a calm disposition, never raising his voice at me.I felt confident to allow Adrian to tell me when it was the right time to book my test. I trusted his judgement and where I am today is because of his excellent teaching skills and his years of experience. I would definitely recommend halifax driving school. More...

Thank you Adrian! I had previously tried driving in manual and tried for a good 6 months with various instructors and i had given up - thinking i would never drive. It had put me off a bit but when i came across adrian he made me feel quite at ease, we decided on automatic and i will never look back. I managed to pass in 2 months and it was a much better experience than the first time. Adrian is laid back, easy to talk to and generally makes you feel comfortable, which for me, eliminated the stress and let me focus on bettering my skills. Would definitely recommend. If he can get someone as nervous as me through, he will get anyone through. More...

Adrian has the patience of a saint. I started out in a manual but after 2 lessons I was about to give up. Adrian made me see sense and told me not to give up, just try in the automatic, it was the best thing I ever did! Adrian has helped me with my fear of roundabouts and width restrictions and has reassured me every step of the way. He is so calm and patient and doesn’t stress or shout. He has easy step by step instructions for learning all the different manoeuvres and makes everything so much easier than you could imagine. I would highly recommended you get in touch with Adrian for lessons. I’ve been putting this off for years and finally realised it was time to grow up and get some lessons booked in. I thought it would be the hardest things I’d ever do, but with a really good instructor I finally passed my test today first time round with one fault!Thanks again Adrian for everything! More...

I passed my test with Adrian today and this guy has been brilliant at calming me down my test nerves after i'd failed twice before with different instructors and making all the maneouvres really easy to follow and remember. The lessons have been so lighthearted and fun that I enjoy driving again and look forward to hitting the road! Also must mention that despite being ill, he was very devoted to making sure I covered everything before my test and never cancelled or was late. He's a star! More...

I had 2 bad experiences with 2 other instructors then I found Adrian. I was very self doubting about myself and my driving abilities. Adrian made me feel so relaxed as soon as I sat in the car and after the first lesson my confidence was back. I just passed my driving test first time with only 4minors. I want to say a massive thank you to Adrian for everything and for getting me through my test. I would recommend him 1000% he's amazing. More...

Adrian was more than helpful. I didn't pass first time around solely because of how nervous I was, but he didn't give up on me and helped me pass the second time around. He's really patient and really knows how to teach you how to be a good and safe driver. I honestly don't have any complaints. I can't recommend him enough! More...

I had a fantastic experience learning to drive with Adrian. He is brilliant at what he does and makes you feel at ease and lessons are enjoyable, whilst still getting the results. I had a bad start in the 1990s and failed my test twice then gave up, so when I finally decided that 2018 was the year to pass, I’m so glad I found Adrian. He built up my confidence and week by week I felt a bit stronger and more able. I really think Adrian made all the difference and I loved his laidback style, whilst knowing all the ins and outs of what the examiners in Watford are looking for.I got the impression he wanted me to pass and he goes out of his way to get you that pass and make the lessons fun. Passed yesterday! Thanks so much! More...

Adrian.. what a man!! I was massively lacking confidence and knowledge to steer a manual car. Adrian made the whole process so much more easier. Classes were always fun with the radio on singing throughout while maintaining the high standards and values he will in-still upon you as a new driver. Totally recommend his classes, follow his instructions with confidence and you will definitely pass. Thanks again Adrian for your patience and tolerating me the past few weeks, it was an absolute Pleasure.! Take care and All the Best.! More...

Before I started learning with Adrian I was really nervous due to a bad experience with my previous instructor. However, Adrian quickly put me at ease and helped to build up my confidence as a new driver. He is such a calming influence and was so accommodating and helpful; I am a mum and sometimes needed to bring my son in the car with me and sometimes even pick him up from school during a lesson, all of this was not a problem for Adrian. Adrian made me feel safe, comfortable and confident as a driver and now I can say that I absolutely love driving. The lessons were always very professional, but relaxed and fun at the same time.I have recommended Adrian to my friends and would highly recommend him to anyone reading this review.Thank you Adrian :-) More...

Adrian helped my pass my driving test despite my hate for driving. He was really understanding and helped me feel calm and happy about the process. It was a great experience learning to drive with him and I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family.

***Passed practical in first attempt***

It's not about driving the car , it's about accuracy in driving which I'm able to understand with Adrian. He always try to help in my weak areas as well as showed me new techniques of car maneuver. I recommend Halifax/Adrian to all people who want to learn and pass.

So happy I passed my test! I was looking for another instructor after being let down by my previous . I found Adrian on Facebook and messaged one of his students and she highly recommended him . The first lesson I had with Adrian , he could see my potential and soon had me driving the main roads and practicing monuvers, that very day we booked my test. He is very calm with his teaching and teaches you at your own pace. I would 100% recommend Halifax driving school. Manual or automatic Adrian is the instructor for you :) More...

Fantastic experience with Adrian! I was let down quite badly with my previous instructor and had to find a new one with only just over 2 weeks until my test date.

He is very calm, reassuring, friendly and easy to get on with and was very flexible with fitting me in with the hours I needed in such a short space of time.
