“Kevin was recommended to me by a friend who in turn knew several of his former students, all of whom passed the driving test on their first attempt. I can honestly say the course of driving lessons with Kevin was one of the most valuable and rewarding educational experiences I have had. His focus, attention to detail, and understanding, all gave me the skills and confidence required to complete the test successfully. I can’t recommend him highly enough”
