"I was only with Steve for four months after having a previous driving instructor and I learnt a hell of a lot In the short time I was with him, and I ended up passing first time with only 2 minors as Steve helped me go in ready and well prepared. I owe a lot to Steve as he has generously helped me easily achieve something Ive always wanted."

"When I first started driving, I was learning with a different driving school. I wasn't getting along well with the instructor, and my confidence was lowering. I decided I need to change driving school, and that's when I met Steve. It was the best decision I ever made, because my confidence rocketed, he's such a calm and patient instructor, so it made driving really relaxing and fun. You plan your lessons out which is great, you can monitor your own progress, and Steve will teach you whatever way is best for you. I can't reccomend him highly enough! Whether you're a nervous driver or not, Steve Chaplin Driving School is the best to go with!"
