"If I could give this human more than 5 stars I'd give him infinite stars. I have struggled for many many* years to find a driving instructor that I could feel comfortable with. There has been more than a few and I just couldn't stick with them. I found Steve Chaplins driving school, he was different to the rest, with a massive sense of actual care, like I wasn't just another on the list. I struggle day to day with trust and anxiety but it seemed like that was understood, and it was worked woth not against. After 10+ years of trying, Steve Chaplins Driving school got me through my test, with a pass first time might I add. Absolutely recommend this one, if you have any worries, have tired time and time again or just simply want to pass your test calmly, then this is the one for you. Thank you for getting me through something I'd never thought would happen."

Secondly, creating a positive and engaging learning environment is essential to helping my students achieve their goals.

Lastly, I always aim to provide excellent value for money to ensure that my students get the most out of their lessons.
