Change of car.

Well I started my driving tuition with 1st time because it was the cheapest I could find in the area. The first 4 lessons were only £60 and I even did a small amount of driving in lesson 1. The car was a new diesel corsa, which was a gem to drive. Only stalled it once. The instructor was flexible...

Nothing that I know off.

Before starting with Steve (of 1st Time School of Motoring) I had already lost time and money with one of Dave Miller's instructors. I was quite upset and depressed and was looking for someone who I could trust and rely upon. One of my colleagues talked very high about Steve and gave me his...

busy sundays

Definitely one of the cheapest in Dartford. They do the 1st 4 for £60 which is good and you get a full hour lesson, as opposed to the 50 minutes I was getting before. I learnt more in one lesson than I did the 18 I had with the other schools. My instructor seemed a genuine sort of bloke who was...

too frank and upright in pointing out faults

Wen I decided to choose a driving school, I was a bit confused and kind of just said they were all the same. On a stroll around the neighbourhood, I came across a car parked with the logo of '1st Time School of Motoring'. The instructor, Steve gave me details and promised to call him that night...

I am really glad I have chosen 1st Time driving school, read good reviews about this motoring school, so when I gave them a call they where friendly and found a slot for me quite quickly. I passed my practical test without a problem from first time. I’ve gained brilliant driving experience and...

Good Price, New Cars and Excellent Teachers!!

None!!

A friend recommended Jon Smith from 1st Time School of Motoring and he was great! The Prices were very reasonable, the first 4 lessons were £60.00 and after that, I paid in blocks of 10, which kept the price down a bit more. I took my lessons in a new Vauxhall Corsa which was easy to drive. Jon...

Cheap, door to door service, flexible with times

None that i can think of

Affordable deals to suit all levels. They came to my house each lesson, they used the same car each time, same one i took my test in. My instructor was old school, he made you learn rather than teach you, but it worked. Passed with only four minor faults on the test card. The car was excellent...

great instructors and affordable prices

errm i dunno

I’ve just passed my practical driving test! My lessons with 1st time have been great. I put special emphasis on my driving instructor Steve however because he IS the best instructor I could have asked for. He delivers his instructions in a clear and concise form which in my case ensured that...

None I can think of

I'd like to say a big thank you to Peter who has taught me to drive resulting in me passing my test today with only 1 minor. Every possible angle was covered during my lessons meaning the test was quite comfortable. I was not made to feel like a cash cow and it seemed he genuinley wanted me to do...

I struggle to think of any disadvantages

Although I did not have the easiest time passing my driving tests I Steve at 1st time helped me to learn to drive, and to be a good driver. I work in Westminster in a rather stressful job, and liked the way that Steve was able to fit around my working patten, which can change quite erratically at...

I took my lessons with dave miller and had around 30 in total, including failing 3 tests due to my nerves in the test. but in each of these lessons i was driving from the moment i left my door to the moment i got back. i think it comes down to a lazy petrol saving first time instructor that is to blame in the first place. I passed forth time.
