"I am more than pleased I had Alan as my instructor & passed me first time :) I did the 35 hour intensive course & would highly recommend doing this with Alan. He made everything easy to understand along with giving me the confidence to be on the road. He is very understanding & makes you feel at ease & will go over anything again with you so you completely understand. Thanks again Alan!"
- Louise Hibberd - November 2020
"Alan is a wonderful driving instructor. He helped our eldest pass his driving test first time and our middle son is now very much looking forward to being old enough to begin learning with Alan too when he becomes 17 in the spring. Alan is very patient and helps the pupil with confidence. He knew what methods worked best with our son to learn from day one. And helped him with technique and safe practices. We would not hesitate to recommend Alan to anybody local wishing to learn to drive."

His website is great and provides useful information needed for the test.
Alan is also quick to provide positive feedback when you do something well, and is an all-round lovely person! I couldn't recommend Alan highly enough!"
- Josh Charles - October 2019
"After several failed tests over several years, shattered confidence and with a irrational fear of the practical test, I hadn't driven for over 5 years when I decided to do a 25 hour course with Alan and try the test again. Alan was so good, very patient, clear, friendly and he lets you develop into your own driver without prescribing every move, only correcting you if you do something unsafe. After 4 days of driving with Alan, I finally passed the test with zero faults and rediscovered my love for driving. Can't recommend Alan and intensive driving courses enough! Thank you!!"
- Thiaga Wyndow - August 2019

Would recommend him to anyone wanting to do an intensive! Thank you so much Alan!"
- Georgia Lloyd - December 2016
"If you're not sure whether to do hourly lessons or an intensive course I would recommend an intensive course every time, it seriously increases your chances of quickly becomming a safe driver and passing your test first time.
Alan is a very positive instructor and his positivity and confidence in you will make you a confident driver right from the get go. I had no prior driving experience before taking the course but thanks to Alan I passed first time and with only 2 minors.
Thanks again Alan. Top bloke."
- Jason Woolhouse - November 2016

- Conor McFarlane - November 2016
"Having passed my driving test on Friday, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for letting me do an intensive driving course with Dean, and at such short notice.
I was initially a bit nervous since I hadn't had the chance to meet either of you before starting my course, but Dean turned out to be the perfect instructor. His car is great to learn to drive, and Dean himself is precise and clear, calm, patient, understanding, and very encouraging. I could not have got to my test in a better state of mind, and had I failed, I would not have changed instructors.
Thank you very much again!"
- Clémentine Dugrand - September 2016
"Absolutely brilliant course. Alan was always friendly and helpful. He was always calm and greets you with a smiling face each day. When I first started I was very uncomfortable with the idea of driving, but within the first two days I felt at ease and safe in the car. And the result speaks for itself, within a week I've gone from never driving a car, to having a full licence. Beyond happy and worth every penny. Thank you again for helping me through this, I couldn't have done it without your help and patience!"

- Kate Louise Maisey-Zammit - August 2016

"Just passed my test after having completed an intensive course with Best Driving Courses. The instructor could not have been more accommodating and helpful. I was fitting lessons around child care and he was brilliant about coming early to suit me. I was really impressed with how at ease he made me feel and how much more quickly I learnt compared to my previous instructor. He also had great tips and tricks for getting the maneuvers spot on! He is clearly a very experienced instructor and I would absolutely recommend Best Driving Courses."
- Lizzie Ward, February 2015
"Without taking a Best Intensive Driving course i definitely wouldn't have passed by now, before I was taking a lesson each weekend with various instructors/companies which wasn't working, a friend recommended I took a driving course so I looked into local companies that offered this service, Best Intensive Driving was top of the list, after calling them up I was comprehensively talked through the various courses and the one that suited me best. Instantly the friendly voice caught my attention and the course was booked.
My course was a week long and I can honestly say I learnt more in this week driving than I ever did doing separate lessons, the instructor was friendly, funny easy to get on with whilst still being informative and assertive.
My test was booked for the week after, he even went the extra mile and got me a cancellation test which was before my original booking, Top job all round. I can and will be recommending Best Driving Courses to anyone who is in need."
- M Goddard, November 2014
"He is one of the most honest and flexible people I've met. I was limited on time and having recently moved abroad I needed to get my license quick. He is not only calm and collected but also helped with access to theory test practice app free of charge. Only being in the UK for two weeks, he managed to cram in a 20 hour course and book me a test within 4 days.
He was completely flexible we started early in the morning and literally covered everything at a pace which suited me. Great sense of humour and puts you at ease also assertive when needed.
I would highly recommend anyone who needs a course with limited time and great value for money."

"Great instructor! Thoroughly recommend" (5 Star Facebook review)
- Jason Lee Spruce, March 2014
"I started a 30 hour intensive driving course on the 1st March and from the beginning it was an enjoyable experience. I was pretty nervous when I started but he took all the pressure of learning to drive away by approaching each obstacle simply and letting me get on with it!
He's happy to chat and joke, but does it in a way that isn't distracting. His instructions are effective, to the point and effective. At no point did I think I would pass my test first time, but with his guidance I passed with only 3 Minors! I would most definitely recommend Best Intensive Driving school to anyone looking to pass their test in the quickest and most effective way!"
- Jamie Skuse, March 2014
"Passed first time and really enjoyed my lessons" (5 Star Facebook review)
- Beatrice Nugent, October 2013
"As nervous as I was the instructor made overcoming my nerves way too easy yet he was also a friendly polite man who was willing to help with any questions . And plenty of tips and guidance to improve my driving skills totally recommend these if anyone else has been left with the dreaded burden of doing your practical an theory driving tests."

"Amazed impressed an total 100% satisfactory by the fact I passed 1st time with 4minors thx a lot Allan at best intensive for the great time an teachings I received from yourself I would for sure recommend this instructor to any nervous new learning drivers." (5 Star Facebook review)
- Stacy Wilson, September 2013
"The intense course helped me to retain what I was learning and when it came to test day I was ready, I had a bit of bad luck, persevered with the support of the instructor and we got through. My instructor wanted me to pass, he'd invested his time as had I and the pass is the ultimate goal.
I definitely recommend."
- Darren Lee, September 2013
"I booked online with no problems at all and he replied within a couple of days with my course times. He as a teacher is friendly, funny (which helps when you are nervous) knowledgeable and not brash like some driving instructors and taught me well (as I passed he must have).
I would honestly recommend to anyone." (5 Star Facebook review)
