I taught my 17yr old grand daughter the driving basics, then enlisted Tony to teach her properly, did 2 simulator lessons then 3 in car lessons, 1 per week. On driver test day last week she passed no prob. I highly recommend Tony, a great communicator!

Absolutely Highly recommend Tony, what an amazing teacher and total confidence builder. I have recommended him to plenty of others and my two daughters will definitely be using his guidance.

Amazing school ! i highly recommend Tony to all of those out there learning to drive especially those with confidence issues. The simulator provides a safe learning space to practice and experience a range of scenarios before you are taken out onto the road. Tony helped our son so much. I know as parents we have given him the safest and best chance on our roads. Tony will be seeing our daughter soon and I am comfortable in the knwledg that she will be in safe hands!!

thinking about getting your Driving Licience,? then then Tony's your Man. all three of my children have done their lessons with him and all passed first time . I love the lessons they learn in the simulator, I love that they can learn how to drive in different load/weather conditions safely in the simulator, with out harming themselves or others. Learning to drive in all weather conditions saves lives!! Thanks Tony and Wendy, your lessons are invaluable

I passed my restricted in November and my full in June thanks to Tony! He is an incredible teacher and the simulator makes the fear of making mistakes much less scary! I had a lot of anxiety about driving but felt completely safe and confident because of Tony and his teaching!! I highly recommend excellence driving academy!

I passed my first restricted test yesterday after only driving for a month with Tony, and would highly recommend his classes. Learning in the simulator gave me so much more confidence when it came to driving on the road. His way of teaching is also adapted to the student, and so it was incredibly effective in making me learn quickly but also feel comfortable the whole time. 5/5 stars :)

This morning I took a Full license driving test and I passed it with flying colors. I took two lessons from Tony. The last lesson I took an hour before my test based on his advice. He is a very good instructor and explained the reasons behind all my mistakes and provided clear and simple logic and instructions to end them. He has a lot of patience and tries to cover ebery single detail of the test requirement. He is very thorough in his job

Thank you so much Tony!!!. My 17 old would never have passed the restricted without all your help. Tony is a wonderful teacher, kind and informative. I would recommend Tony as one of the best driving instructors. Very affordable prices.

Highly Recommend for learning to sit restricted. Passed First Try. The Simulator component gave me confidence to learn in a safe environment prior to Interacting With other road users, Due to being in a car accident as a teenager I was able to take things at my own pace. Easy transition onto road. I had 3 lessons with AA prior to taking lessons with Tony and I feel I learnt more in my first lesson with him and felt more comfortable behind the wheel than I ever did with the AA instructor.

Thanks for all your help Tony with Dean for achieving his restricted first time. You had the confidence in him and made him go over his mistakes until he got it right! Thank you also for your patience and your teaching, it was invaluable. The Sim was a different way of learning but made him think and was very helpful with attaining his licence. We would recommend Tony as an instructor to friends and family :) :)

Tony gave me the skills and confidence I needed to pass my restricted first time round. His teaching methods are tailored to each individual which made learning so much faster, as well as his fail proof methods for learning tricky manoeuvres. He enabled me to fell confident and safe behind the wheel and taught me more than I ever thought I'd need to know. I can say with absolute certainty I would not have passed the test without him. Definitely recommend learning with Tony.

I had lessons with Tony for about 2 months, he helped me pass my restricted test, i gained confidence and skills on the road that I never thought i needed to learn. I promise if you have lessons with Tony using this excellent way of learning you will leave coming away with a licence, a lots of new unforgettable skills, confidence for approaching driving and life, and a new friend/ teacher you will miss once you pass your test. Thank you Tony

Our 17 year old son passed restricted test first time, largely thanks to Tony's experience, enthusiasm, patience and his message to the young people to take responsibility for their driving. He gave our son a lot of confidence, and his simulator helped this by being able to replicate difficult situations - like people stepping out onto the the road - in complete safety. Thanks Tony!

We have found the simulator lessons invaluable and they have built confidence and skill into our daughter. Tony has provided a positive and encouraging environment and this has given us the confidence to know that our daughter has learnt more than what we could ever teach!

Tony was a great instructor, explained things well, and had a good attention to detail. The simulator was great and allowed me to gain experience quickly. I passed test on first attempt.

Absolutely amazing driving lessons. Tony (the instructor) is friendly and patient. I quickly got over my fear of driving by first learning how to drive with the simulator. I could crash the car and not have to worry. And making such mistakes in a pressure free environment only made learning how to drive much faster. By the time I was ready to drive on the road I knew what I was doing. I passed my driving test on the first go. A+ driving lessons. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.

Tony is an amazing instructor! I had no confidence before my first lesson but within a couple of weeks my confidence had increased by 100% and I was able to pass my test first time. Tony was calm, clear, collected and passionate. By the end of the lessons I was actually able to start enjoying driving, which was a novel concept! I would definitely recommend SSDT!
