Review of 1st time school of motoring.

AdvantagesCheapest I found, free door collection. Fast pass - No time wasting.

DisadvantagesChange of car.

"...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 but wasn't fully qualified (ie trainee instructor). However the quality of the teaching was good. He was a bit too enthusiastic, and got frustrated sometimes, possibly ..." Read review

I passed my driving test, thanks to Steve O'Briene

AdvantagesExperienced, punctual, friendly and value for money

DisadvantagesNothing 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 number. That's where I came to know him. In a nut shell, my experience with Steve is second to none. I found him very friendly and very experienced. I liked his ..." Read review

1st Time Got Me Through My Test

Advantagescheapest around & good instructors. not money grabbers!

Disadvantagesbusy sundays

"...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 keen to get me through my test as opposed to just taking my money every week. Can't believe how different the quality of the teaching was. It just seemed to click. The only downside ..." Read review

AdvantagesGood all round. Cheap, friendly and reliable

DisadvantagesNone

"...all is well. Passed my test 1st time with 1 minor fault. Broke bad habbits that i had if you are not concentrating would let me know but you need that little reminder at times and to be honest the day of my test helped me keep my calm. With him there i felt like a normal lesson which i enjoyed anyway, the day i passed was smooth from start to finish. Great lessons great guy. Strongly recommend Aaron ..." Read review

Steve O'Brien, the instructor with the midas touch!

AdvantagesSustainable instructions in clear and straight forward manner

Disadvantagestoo 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. Right from the first day of interaction, Steve showed consistency in being frank, straight forward and thorough. For every lesson, if you do a particular ..." Read review

Advantagescheapest deals, easy booking a lesson and friendly instructors

Disadvantagesnone

"...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 more confidence (especially when I needed the most - before exam).

Excellent!!

AdvantagesGood Price, New Cars and Excellent Teachers!!

DisadvantagesNone!!

"...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 made me feel at ease when I was learning and was very patient, professional and an overall excellent teacher. Jon was very flexible and if I couldn't make a ..." Read review

1st time...that´s when I passed my test with these guys

AdvantagesCheap, door to door service, flexible with times

DisadvantagesNone 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, nothing too complex but always in good order and with all the features one would expect and need. I had a feeling that my instructor wanted me to pass and ..." Read review

Steve O'Brien at 1st time!

Advantagesgreat instructors and affordable prices

Disadvantageserrm i dunno

"...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 there were no gaps in my knowledge. His personality helps to loosen up the atmosphere and not to mention his calm and patience which made me feel really relaxed while driving. Steve was a ..." Read review

1st Time is correct!!

AdvantagesCheapest around but still did not try and push me for additional lessons which were not needed

DisadvantagesNone 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 well. He was very fair when it came to costs and he would always pick me up from my home, always getting a full hour, even going over if there was something ..." Read review

Steve O'Brien Helped me to learn to drive

AdvantagesAn adaptive teaching method, flexible lesson plans and a relaxed atmosphere

DisadvantagesI struggle to think of any disadvantages

"...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 times. The pricing was reasonable and I was able to do one or two hour lessons. I had started to learn to drive over a year ago in a different location, and I felt that my past instructor was teaching me ..." Read review
