The Best Experience Ever

I was recommended to go with Rick by a friend who said he was a brilliant driving instructor - and I couldn't agree more! Right from my first lesson, he was very calm (which was always very reassuring). He was especially helpful when it came to making sure I was comfortable while still making sure I was making good progress! With Rick's help, I passed first time and couldn't be happier! If anybody is considering learning to drive, then I would highly recommend Rick! Thank you again!

I would highly recommend Keiran and DVDS as a driving school for anyone looking to learn! Keiran always made lessons enjoyable and helped me conquer my nerves, making me feel confident on the road. Couldn’t be happier with my first time pass today with only 3 driving faults!
