"It's been really fun learning to drive with Steve. Beforehand, I was super nervous about learning to drive and had put it off for quite a while. We just started out at my pace and he didn't rush me at all. For the first lesson, you can just sit in the car for a bit if that's what you need. Early on, he taught me how to deal with other drivers as I'm not a very sociable person and this was a major concern for me. Causing some sort of incident and getting honked at was one of my biggest fears. Steve taught me how to relax and not feel rushed, whilst still being safe and aware of other drivers.

"Steve has taught me to be a safe and efficient driver, not to just simply pass the driving test. Driving has gone from being a source of dread, to something that doesn't make me nervous at all and is actually enjoyable. City driving, large multi-lane roundabouts, things that I thought were going to be impossible to deal with are easy at this point.

"I would highly recommend Steve Chaplin Driving School if you are apprehensive about driving like I was."
