"went through everything very clearly and in a way that someone like me could understand... overall a great experience"
 
The main reason I chose A Star Driving School

Got to know about Tim through a friend and he was really helpful - I only had about 7 lessons and passed first time! He went through everything very clearly and in a way that someone like me could understand... overall a great experience. And, were my licence to be revoked (🤞 not) I would be back in a heartbeat. Thanks!"

"Tim was patient and professional and if you listen to him.......then you will earn yourself a shiny full driving licence"
 
The main reason I chose A Star Driving School was:

"More than ten years since badly failing my driving test, common sense and the general ageing process, including finding myself riding my motorbike for fun far less than I did previously, motivated me to take another crack at getting a full car licence. I wanted someone local to Greenwich ( who would hopefully know the Hither Green test route, where I had failed previously) and found Tim at A star driving school on-line. I left a message and he called me back same day. He arranged an assessment session and declared he thought that 5 x2 hour sessions, including the test day, for a very reasonable £300 upfront would be enough. So basically I had just over ten hours in a car from 2007 to my test day. Tim is a friendly reassuring presence and comes with a nippy little upmarket Mini which is an excellent vehicle to learn in. Despite my nervousness, and my propensity to repeat mistakes, Tim was patient and professional and if you listen to him, follow his guidance and trust in his teaching process, including sending illustrations and videos to you to help when you are uncertain about a manoeuvre, then you will earn yourself a shiny full driving licence. Highly recommended. G Sutton (Sept’19 passed with 2 minor faults 😊 )"

"His teaching methods are on point and he really sets you up for success"
 
The main reason I chose A Star Driving School was:

"When searching for local driving schools, I chose Tim due to how many good reviews and passes he had. He was understanding of my schedule and we worked around it which I appreciate. His teaching methods are on point and he really sets you up for success. Again would 100% recommend. Passed my test with one fault. Tim is a great instructor and I would definitely recommend him"

"I had a very good learning-to-drive experience with A Star Driving School and passed my test at first go."
 

This comprehensive 5 star Google review just in from Niina K of Greenwich.

I had a very good learning-to-drive experience with A Star Driving School and passed my test at first go. The communication was always good and classes started/finished on time. In case of changes whether by me or the School, it was always easy and clear to communicate. The car, mini, was nice, clean, new and well looked after, and comfortable to drive. The instructor, Tim, is a very nice person to have as your instructor, extremely patient and calm and never patronising. He has a well thought-through methodology to the teaching starting with the very basics (and he will drive to a quieter area where you can start to practice safely), and gradually adding new skills (how to safely start/stop the car, to how to safely take junctions major/minor, left/right turns, roundabouts, red routes, parking techniques etc.). I found the structure of methodology very helpful. He also covers the mechanics of the car, which helps at the beginning to understand the usage of clutch, brake, gas and the gears. In addition, Tim uses an iPad with a driving app to safely explain different scenarios on the roads. You will also do a mock test before the actual driving test, which is pretty much identical to the real one. It was very helpful in terms of feeling prepared and having an idea on what to expect. If you are looking for a driving school; I would recommend A Star.

Independent Driving School, 5* Reviews - Greenwich, London SE10

This Google review just received from yesterday's zero faults driving test success, Ollie Mahoney of Greenwich:

"I passed my test today with no faults. Tim has been absolutely brilliant! I chose Tim as an instructor as I live the Greenwich area. He’s calm and patient instructor. Clearly he has a wealth of knowledge and experience putting people through their driving lessons and test. I now feel confident on the roads, with some excellent tips and advice from Tim driving on London’s busy roads! 5* review well deserved!"

This 5 star Google Review already received from one of today's first time test successes, Stuart Armstrong of Blackheath Village:

"Tim is a fantastic instructor with a comprehensive, constructive and calm teaching style. You’ll leave each lesson feeling more and more confident on the road and with a greater understanding of not only how to drive safely and effectively, but how to be a considerate and self-assured driver! I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to recommend A Star Driving School to anyone."

"provided lots of useful tips and gave me the confidence to keep going when I felt I was never going to make it"
 

Independent Driving School, 5* Reviews - Blackheath, London SE3

This 5 star Google Review recently received from Dr Andrew Smith of Blackheath:


"I learned to drive with Tim at A Star after being recommended to him by another well regarded driving instructor in the area. He is based close to where I live (near the Royal Standard) so it was a good fit. I never learned to drive when most other people do so - I left it until my forties - so I was looking for someone who would be patient and tolerant of my inadequacies. Tim is easy to talk to and the (many) hours I spent with driving with him were surprisingly enjoyable. He provided lots of useful tips and gave me the confidence to keep going when I felt I was never going to make it. He was always very punctual and communicative. And I really enjoyed driving his car! I am now enjoying driving round SE London - something I never thought would happen - and Tim played a very significant role in that transformation."

Independent Driving School Great Reviews - Blackheath, London SE3

This 5 star Google review received today from another one of this week's first time passers, Roan Khanna of Blackheath:

"Tim is a fantastic instructor and I can confidently recommend him. He is a calm and patient teacher who teaches topics thoroughly and in a detail oriented manor, therefore inspiring confidence while driving. Tim doesn't just teach you how to pass your test, he prepares you for driving on the road once you've passed. Tim is great to work with outside of the car; he is very professional, always on time to the minute and he answered my messages quickly. With A Star Driving School, I passed my driving test first time with only a single minor."

Independent Driving School, Great Reviews - Lee, London SE12

This review just in on SurveyMonkey from superstar zero defect test passer, Oliver May of Colfes School, London SE12 and Eltham:

(Learning To Drive)... was harder than I thought and you really have to concentrate, but Tim put me at ease straight away and I loved the fact he let me drive straight away. No hanging around whatsoever.

(Teaching Methods) ...Tim was brilliant. He was always calm and patient and explained everything in detail. He immediately corrected any mistakes and made sure I knew where I had gone wrong. At the beginning of each lesson we went over everything from the previous lesson which was a great help. He helped me with the theory test and recommended great revision aids.

(Recommended?) ...Most definitely. Tim made me feel very comfortable and he was easy to chat to. I was never afraid to ask him anything. Great car to learn in too!

"I cannot recommend Tim highly enough. I don't think there is a better driving instructor in London"
 
"Absolutely Brilliant Driving !nstructor" - Blackheath, London SE3

This amazing review just in from Dr Madeleine Mosse of Blackheath!

Why Did You Choose A Star Driving School?
Tim came highly recommended


How Did Learning To Drive Compare To What You Expected?
It was better than I expected because Tim was great company and made it an enjoyable experience.

How Did You Find Your Instructor's Teaching Methods?
Tim is an absolutely brilliant driving instructor who pays great attention to detail and ensures that you perfect every aspect of your driving. Although he is working towards getting you through your test, he's also teaching you to be a really good driver. Tim is extremely patient and caring and is able to gage the pace at which you need to learn. I never felt pressured, and whenever I did something wrong/stupid he would make me feel better about it instantly, and help me to see how to avoid similar mistakes in the future. He was incredibly encouraging from day one and made learning to drive fun. I can't believe the level of care and attention he puts into every lesson and the way in which he always puts his pupils first. He's also such a lovely person to spend time with and I will miss our fantastic chats. I've not only learnt to drive, I've gained a friend!

Would You Recommend Us To Your Friends, If So, Why?
I cannot recommend Tim highly enough. I don't think there is a better driving instructor in London. Particularly if you are nervous about learning to drive or feel unconfident in your driving. Tim will believe in you and give you the confidence and skills you need to pass your test. The fact that I passed with zero faults is 100% down to Tim's patience and excellent teaching methods.

How Did You Find Your Instructor's Teaching Methods?
I'd had a few instructors before outside and inside London. Tim was by far the best, extremely patient and taught me to be a confident, good driver.
It is hard to find the right instructor but Tim really ticked all of the boxes. I would definitely recommend Tim to anyone learning how to drive. 
Not only did I learn how to drive but actually Tim is very friendly and the 2 hour lessons became actually enjoyable rather than a chore. As someone fairly nervous about taking my test he really made me feel comfortable on the day.

How Did Learning To Drive Compare To What You Expected?
I had learned to drive an automatic 10 years ago so I had a vague idea of the structure learning to drive would take. The pace was much more manageable than I expected. There is no sense of rushing through lessons or milestones. I also didn't expect to learn so much about the car itself and understanding the function of gears, gas, breaks, wheels, etc which was extremely helpful.

How Did You Find Your Instructor's Teaching Methods?
Tim's teaching methods are thoughtful and effective. He is meticulous about instructing. He shapes each lesson and structures the course based on you and your needs as a learner driver while still getting through the syllabus. He is thorough in his explanations and balances each lesson perfectly with theoretical knowledge and practical knowledge. He listens intently to your concerns and reacts accordingly. He makes you feel comfortable and confident from day one. He also ensures that you are completely confident and proficient in each lesson before moving on to the next. I felt in safe hands throughout my time as a learner driver in London - which is no small feat.

Would You Recommend Us To Your Friends, If So, Why?
Of course. I would and will recommend in a heartbeat. I had such a great experience as a learner driver. I was comfortable, confident, and know that I gained a deep understanding of driving from theory to practical.

"His pacing of introducing challenges was fantastic".."I already miss these lessons, they had become a highlight of my way of life."
 
Driving Lessons Greenwich

Just got this great review in from superstar drummer and recently wed, Corrie Dick of Greenwich:

How Did Learning To Drive Compare To What You Expected?
Having learned previously in Glasgow (and failed a couple of tests) I was fully prepared for learning on London roads to be, at least initially, astressful and challenging ordeal. Tim was empathetic from lesson one and soon I found myself looking forward to each lesson. It became very pleasurable.


How Did You Find Your Instructor's Teaching Methods?
Tim was, for me, the perfect balance of clarity and calm. If ever I was in any doubt about what I should be doing, Tim would seem to know what I was thinking and steer me to proper driving. If I felt I knew what I was doing, Tim was reassuring or just allowed me to drive on without complicating things. His pacing of introducing challenges was fantastic and I frequently found myself in that state of 'flow' where the challenge was pushing my skill level. I already miss these lessons, they had become a highlight of my way of life.

Would You Recommend Us To Your Friends, If So, Why?
I would, because I feel like a confident and safe driver and I look forward to every moment spent in my car. Job done!

 
 
"The whole driving process was demystified, and by the time the test came, I felt incredibly relaxed and confident"
 
Independent Driving School, Great Reviews - Blackheath, London SE3

This review just received from Mick Hunter of Blackheath:
How Did Learning To Drive Compare To What You Expected?
I've tried to learn to drive before, and found this a lot less stressful than I expected because of the slow progression and well chosen locations. I never felt I was being pushed, and I always felt like I was gaining a solid understanding of the fundamentals of what I was doing.

How Did You Find Your Instructor's Teaching Methods?
Confident and helpful. Focusing on one thing at a time helped a great deal, and 'games' like calling out whether bus lanes are active and calling out when the speed limit changes were very useful for learning to notice those things.

Would You Recommend Us To Your Friends, If So, Why?
Absolutely. I passed my test on my first go, and I'd expected to have to take two or three stabs at it. The whole driving process was demystified, and by the time the test came, I felt incredibly relaxed and confident. I never expected to feel that way during my test, and with other instructors, I doubt I would have.

How Did Learning To Drive Compare To What You Expected?
I imagined learning to drive In London to be much tougher/busier than it was was, however we started the lessons in some residential areas and built up to the more urban environment at a pace I was comfortable with.

How Did You Find Your Instructor's Teaching Methods?
I really appreciated the structure of the course, taking a topic each week and focusing solely on this was a great way to learn all of the skills I needed.

Tim seemed to have a forensic knowledge of the local area and knew exactly where to go to practice the subject of each lesson.

I also found the demonstrations with the iPad really helpful. This allowed us to go over a number of different scenarios that could happen in a short space of time, before going on to practice a particular hazard or manoeuvre. This also gave a good opportunity to ask questions and clarify anything.

Recapping the previous lesson at the beginning of each session was also really useful. This prompted me to focus on any particular issues that were outstanding, or ask any questions I had wondered about since the last lesson.

Would You Recommend Us To Your Friends, If So, Why?
I would definitely recommend A Star to my friends! It's been a pleasure learning with the school. Tim was very friendly, deeply knowledgeable and also very flexible around the times I needed to take my lessons. Cheers Tim!Local Driving School Good Reviews Greenwich

 
 
"great value, great tuition, great company and great results."
 
This wonderful testimonial from Paul walton of Blackheath Village:

"Simply put, Tim is a brilliant driving instructor and a great guy as well. I hadn’t driven for 12 years before I started lessons with Tim and it took Tim only 8 lessons (2 hours each) to get me successfully through my driving test… with only two minors!! I certainly feel it would have taken a lot longer with another instructor but Tim instilled confidence in me from the start. Tim is not only a very skilled instructor but he has a great way of communicating and getting his point across without making you lose confidence. He is genuine and is only interested in doing the best by his students which is getting them successfully through their test in as short a timeframe as is possible & sensible. I really looked forward to my lessons with Tim and enjoyed his company while I was learning in his fantastic car. I will always recommend anyone looking to learn to drive to call Tim. He offers great value, great tuition, great company and great results."

Tim was a great teacher, very aware of how I felt in different driving situations and pushed me out of my comfort zone again and again until I felt confident.

Tim was excellent he pushes you to your best. Making sure you have achieved each task he set out for you at the beginning of the lesson. Tim is very thorough and only accepts 100% from you. This is a good thing because at least you know he’s being honest with you. He wants you to become an excellent driver like him.

Learning to drive was much more complex than I had thought. It's not just about learning which pedal does what!

Would You Recommend Us To Your Friends, If So, Why?
I would definitely recommend A* Driving School, because Tim is very capable, professional and patient. The car I learnt on was a good size for a learner, not too small, so I felt better prepared to drive another car afterwards. It was a smooth drive (apart from when I was driving!) and had great handling. I have already recommended Tim to friends of mine.

"Tim is patient, clear and also a really nice guy: he made my driving lessons relaxed and enjoyable"
 
Particularly nice review just in from Siobhan Belshaw of East Greenwich:
Q3: Why Did You Choose A Star Driving School
I chose A Star Driving School after looking around online for local driving instructors. The reviews for A Star Driving School, and in particular Tim's teaching methods, were extremely positive.
Q4: How Did You Get Our Contact Number
From the website.
Q5: How Did Learning To Drive Compare To What You Expected
Learning to drive in London is quite daunting and I initially felt nervous, particularly on busy roads. However, Tim was a very calming influence and made the experience less stressful than I had expected it to be.
Q6: How Did You Find Your Instructor's Teaching Methods
Tim was very clear, methodical and patient. Lessons were planned so that there was a clear theme each week i.e. 'roundabouts', 'junctions' etc. This structured approach worked really well for me. Tim also gave me a notebook which he used to take detailed notes summarising what had been covered each week: the next lesson would then begin with a quick re-cap of the previous week. It was very useful to have this ongoing progress report to refer back to.
Q7: Would You Recommend Us To Your Friends, If So, Why
Most definitely. Tim is patient, clear and also a really nice guy: he made my driving lessons relaxed and enjoyable. His attention to detail ensured I was well prepared for my test and I'm really grateful to him for all his hard work helping me to pass. I had a couple of wobbles along the way due to nerves but he believed in me and kept me focused. Thank you Tim!

"Tim was patient and clear throughout. He was a stickler for detail (in a good way) but didn't want to waste time; teaching exactly what was needed to pass the test and be a safe driver."
 
This review just in from Charlie Smelt of Greenwich:

How Did Learning To Drive Compare To What You Expected?

I had already had a driving instructor in Yorkshire so I expected a certain level of instructor competency. Tim met this level and exceeded it. Driving in London is quite taxing and especially stressful. I expected it to be particularly difficult. But with Tim's advice, I felt at ease in the urban environment.

How Did You Find Your Instructor's Teaching Methods?

Great. I was happy to discover that Tim gave us a log book /pad which he updated after every lesson. This felt like progress was consistently being made and every lesson was valuable. Alongside this, Tim's ipad was especially useful. There were a few things I found confusing (such as priority at mini roundabouts and crossroads!) but Tim was able to explain them using the ipad. Being able to see the situation graphically was a tremendous help. Otherwise, Tim was patient and clear throughout. He was a stickler for detail (in a good way) but didn't want to waste time; teaching exactly what was needed to pass the test and be a safe driver.

Would You Recommend Us To Your Friends, If So, Why?

Yes. Tim is friendly and a competent instructor. Helpful, but not overbearing. I would highly recommend him and the A star driving school.

"the days I would look forward to most (even more than my own birthday) was the driving lessons with Tim!"
 
Q: How Did Learning To Drive Compare To What You Expected?

A: I went in with a somewhat negative outlook on the whole learning to drive aspect, I had concerns whether or not my teacher will be able to cater to my needs and I was a bit shaken and nervous. To my surprise that wasn't the case, it was quite the contrary. I felt very much at ease with Tim as he was patient and kind. The first lesson itself he got me to move the car on the road and drive it! Every time I stepped into the vehicle I had a great sense of security and tons of fun. Sir was always to the point. He never sugar-coated or minced words, if he saw something wrong and a need for correction he would do so in a patient and caring manner. He made it his point to understand what he was saying so that you the learner would reap the most out of it. Sir made comprehensive notes at the end of each and every lesson, which I cherish and look back on always. Furthermore, the next lesson we would have a brief recap on what we did and then we'd be off again on the road learning and experiencing. During my learning period, the days I would look forward to most (even more than my own birthday) was the driving lessons with Tim! That being said, at the end of it all, I went out feeling privileged to have had Tim as a teacher, I went out with confidence on the road and I went out ecstatically.

Q: How Did You Find Your Instructor's Teaching Methods

A: Words don't really do it justice. It is one of those ones where you have to experience it to understand the magnitude of greatness. I personally am very picky about the people who teach me. I had my doubts, at first, fortunately, I have been proven wrong on all accounts. Sir is very concise and to the point. He corrects you with humbleness and patience which is a key factor in any form of teaching. Tim built a strong foundation and then built upon it very well. Hence, the reason I passed my driving test. His methods are in no manner questionable. I truly believe that his methods cater for all sorts and if anyone were to come under his tutelage as I have, they would leave experienced and they would leave fulfilled.

 
Q: Would You Recommend Us To Your Friends, If So, Why

A: Yes! Most definitely. Why? I think my reasons are stated in my answers prior to this question. However, if I must, then the reason would be because it is excellent. Why would you withhold such an amazing thing and not want to share it?

Driving Lessons Blackheath

Already got this review in from a certain Ben Mountain of Blackheath - Oh well you cant please all the people all the time!!

Q3: Why Did You Choose A Star Driving School
I chose A Star due to the combination of them having a better looking car than the AA, my sense of obligation and the offer of a favourable discount


Q4: How Did You Get Our Contact Number
From an odd and insistent man who lives in my house

Q5: How Did Learning To Drive Compare To What You Expected
Learning to drive was a far more stressful and uncomfortable experience than I had expected. Tim was erratic, impatient and, at times, deliberately obstructing. I felt that his regular encouragement to ignore speed limits, rev the engine at elderly women and master the handbrake turn for my first lesson was not entirely helpful. The frequent lack of attention and caution shown by Tim was alarming at best. In no way was he thorough, considerate or patient.

Q6: How Did You Find Your Instructor's Teaching Methods
As previously mentioned, Tim's methods are somewhat unorthodox. Whilst I'm no expert, I do feel that falling asleep and having me meet him post-pub session are not commonly used techniques with our driving schools. Sadly; Tim's method are pressurising, ineffective and dangerous. Fortunately, however, they worked and I passed happily. Perhaps, given that Tim is in fact my father, his influence over examiners and vested interest in my success simply helped this outcome. Or, although it's less likely, he is in truth a very competent and experienced instructor who helped me no end at every stage of the process. Then again, he's watching me type this at home, so I have to say that.

Q7: Would You Recommend Us To Your Friends, If So, Why
Absolutely not.

"I could not recommend A Star driving school enough... Tim is one of the most friendly and hard working people I have ever had the pleasure to meet and it has been a real privilege to learn with him"
 

"I suffer from mild dyslexia so driving was an extremely daunting prospect for me, as it affects my hand-eye coordination and perception of distance. I had taken previous lessons before in Scotland, but each had ended in disaster and I was convinced that this time would be no exception. Thankfully, It became a joy to go out every week and drive with Tim. He was very patient, understanding and encouraging."

 "Tim was very clear precise in his instruction. I found the visual aids he displayed on his ipad very useful for understanding positioning and maneuvers and if I did not understand he would keep thinking up new ways to help me get there. I struggle with my left and right so he would always try and give me signals, and if I got myself into a problem he would calmly tell me how to recover. He would write each lesson down in a notebook for me to look over which helped for the next lesson as I was able to retain the information despite not being able to practice throughout the week."
 
"I honestly did not think I would pass my driving test in a million years, let alone first time and this was all down to Tim. He was friendly, sincere and always made clear that he wanted me to do well. His methods were clear and concise and thanks to his encouragement I developed real confidence. I could not recommend A Star driving school enough. I will sincerely miss my chats and banter with Tim. He is one of the most friendly and hard working people I have ever had the pleasure to meet and it has been a real privilege to learn with him."

Another nice review just in from Joe of Charlton:

Why Did You Choose A Star Driving School?
I wanted a local independent instructor who knew the area well. I also was very impressed by the other reviews on Tim's site.

How Did Learning To Drive Compare To What You Expected?
I found I was far more capable than I thought I would be. I kept putting off learning to drive, so was very pleased to pick it up rather quickly.

How Did You Find Your Instructor's Teaching Methods?
Tim's method were very methodical, but also designed to make things easier for the student. Especially in learning manoeuvres, I found Tim's style far more practicle and effective than any instructional videos I saw on youtube. Tim's use of an ipad before a new topic makes it easier to understand what is needed.

Would You Recommend Us To Your Friends, If So, Why?
Yes definitely. Tim was very professional, kind and patient. I would especially recommend to older drivers who may be putting off learning for whatever reason

 
 
"gave me a huge amount of confidence in all aspects of my driving"
 
“It was an enjoyable experience. At first, of course I found the experience of learning to drive very daunting. Tim, was very supportive and encouraging and I always felt that I had him supporting me. Made the learning process very pleasant.”

“Tim as an instructor is the ultimate perfectionist but he will ensure you achieve every part of the driving experience to the highest of your ability. His words are filled with knowledge and experience. So as a learner, you feel in safe hands. Everything you cover is test related and I always felt Tim wanted me to do well. I can’t imagine being taught in other way as I feel confident with driving even routes I am unsure of. I feel that I wouldn’t be a threat to any other road users and that I was taught with safety as the main priority. Having passed my test, I would definitely go back to Tim for Advanced Lessons just to ensure proper safety on aspects that the test doesn’t cover.”

“Tim is a funny, supportive and understanding instructor who not only made me pass my test but gave me a huge amount of confidence in all aspects of my driving. I thoroughly enjoyed my lessons and always wanted to ensure all parts of my driving were up to Tim’s very high standards. He was absolutely fabulous and I am very much going to miss all aspects of my driving experience. Thanks a million, Tim.”

" I only wish there were more instructors out there like him!"
 
(How Did You Find Your Instructor's Teaching Methods?)

Tim's teaching methods were perfect for me. Very good at teaching the basics and ensuring they stay with you throughout your learning. When needed he was firm in just the right way to make sure you didn't make the same mistake again. The use of diagrams and videos which he provides via email and during lessons are helpful to get a visual understanding and also shows how much time he takes into planning and creating his lessons. Tim is very honest and will make sure you work on your weaknesses and praises your strengths.

(Would You Recommend Us To Your Friends, If So, Why)

100% yes. I only wish there were more instructors out there like him. He cares about what he does and you can see that by the way he works.

"Tim, I have two words for you, Amazing instructor!  I just want to say a massive thank you for what you have done for me. I know for a fact I wouldn't have got this far without your guidance. Passing my driving test is something I know will change my life and I am so thankful that I chose you to help me get to where I am now.  I will most definitely recommend you to everyone that I know.  Once again, thank you so much.  All the best for the future Tim."

How Did Learning To Drive Compare To What You Expected?
I expected it to be scary which to start with it was but after the first lesson I felt much more relaxed and at ease.
How Did You Find Your Instructor's Teaching Methods?
Tim was always calm and reassuring. I was never made to feel bad for making a mistake, every mistake I did make was met with an explanation and advice on improvements. It was always a positive atmosphere.
Would You Recommend Us To Your Friends, If So, Why?
I would recommend A Star driving to anyone, even though I did not get as far as my test due to change of address, I feel confident that had I continued I would have been completely prepared for the practical exam.

"great value, great tuition, great company and great results"
 
"Simply put, Tim is a brilliant driving instructor and a great guy as well. I hadn’t driven for 12 years before I started lessons with Tim and it took Tim only 8 lessons (2 hours each) to get me successfully through my driving test… with only two minors!! I certainly feel it would have taken a lot longer with another instructor but Tim instilled confidence in me from the start. Tim is not only a very skilled instructor but he has a great way of communicating and getting his point across without making you lose confidence. He is genuine and is only interested in doing the best by his students which is getting them successfully through their test in as short a timeframe as is possible & sensible. I really looked forward to my lessons with Tim and enjoyed his company while I was learning in his fantastic car. I will always recommend anyone looking to learn to drive to call Tim. He offers great value, great tuition, great company and great results."

Paul Walton of Blackheath

 
 
"the teaching methods that Tim uses are very effective"
 
I would recommend the driving school to my friends because the teaching methods that Tim uses are very effective. He is clear in communicating his message and takes detailed notes at the end of each lesson to make sure that any mistakes or weaknesses can be worked on during the next lesson."

"Tim is a great instructor! He enjoys what he is doing and explains everything in a very simple manner. He is very patient and tolerant. I think Tim is a result-oriented person and very easy going. It was a great pleasure to have lessons with him and it is really a shame that I have only 2 lessons. I wish I had more!"

"I would definitely recommend to my friends. By the way, I've already done, however, my friends live in a different area. Tim is a great instructor and explains everything in a very easy and practical manner. It was a great pleasure! Thank you very much!!!"

This SurveyMonkey.com customer feedback just in from Vishal Mohan of Blackheath:

How Did Learning To Drive Compare To What You Expected?

It exceeded my expectations in terms of attention to detail.

How Did You Find Your Instructor's Teaching Methods?

Tim is a true professional and perfectionist. Demands high standards from his pupils and ensures instructions are adhered to. He provides clear instructions and has quite a few handy tricks that are useful during the actual exam. Overall hard few weeks but well worth the effort.

Would You Recommend Us To Your Friends, If So, Why?

Would recommend to friends. Driving test standards in UK are quite strict and Tim's instruction methods are apt for this environment.

 
 
"Tim is a legend of a Driving Instructor.....Great car too"
 
"Tim is a legend of a driving instructor. Prior to sorting myself out with a pucker license, I had only driven automatics- and illegally at that. Bad idea. Tim was quick to identify the areas I needed to brush up on (Most!) and got me sailing through my lessons in no time at all. I think part of Tim’s teaching is to make you feel pretty comfortable fairly quickly allowing you to feel somewhat immune to the road stresses you only find in London. Highly recommended, despite his alliance with Crystal Palace. Great car too!"

Will Whisson of North Greenwich

 
 
"patient, meticulous, very responsible and simply a very nice person to meet!"

Q5: How Did Learning To Drive Compare To What You Expected

A lot of time was spent correcting bad habits that I'd picked up previously, which I didn't realise I had in the first place, so that was something I didn't expect but was nonetheless very important.

They were quite effective. I particularly liked the use of various illustrations in the notebook as well as apps on Tim's iPad to explain concepts and also to describe scenarios on the road.

Q5: How Did Learning To Drive Compare To What You Expected

Unexpectedly, I felt much more confident after starting lessons with Tim. Having had a two hour lesson with 1st Time School of Motoring before, I was really uncomfortable behind the wheel. Tim took his time to give me a briefing everytime he introduced something new, which was very helpful and reassuring.

Excellent! Tim's ability to ensure his student is comfortable and confident behind the wheel are invaluable.

DRIVING LESSONS CHARLTON

This review just in from recent first time successful test candidate Adeseye Ogunneye of Charlton:

I quite enjoyed Tim's driving methods as compare to my previous instructor he was much much more organised and ensured everything was clarified before making you carry out something using technology like iPad, which tend to make things easier, on the other hand Tim is a bit of a perfectionist and does expect everything to be done to a certain standard .... for your own good to keep you safe and make you a better driver and probably as he's aware you can do much better than that..... In the long run it all paved a great path as I had my first lesson with Tim in September and passed in November.

Q7: Would You Recommend Us To Your Friends, If So, Why?

Almost definitely as he teaches in a productive way, was always punctual and ensures you know where you are with your driving at the end of every lesson by good organisation skills.

"Absolutely Brilliant Driving Instructor" - Blackheath, London SE3

This amazing review just in from Dr Madeleine Mosse of Blackheath!

Why Did You Choose A Star Driving School?
Tim came highly recommended

How Did Learning To Drive Compare To What You Expected?
It was better than I expected because Tim was great company and made it an enjoyable experience.

How Did You Find Your Instructor's Teaching Methods?
Tim is an absolutely brilliant driving instructor who pays great attention to detail and ensures that you perfect every aspect of your driving. Although he is working towards getting you through your test, he's also teaching you to be a really good driver. Tim is extremely patient and caring and is able to gage the pace at which you need to learn. I never felt pressured, and whenever I did something wrong/stupid he would make me feel better about it instantly, and help me to see how to avoid similar mistakes in the future. He was incredibly encouraging from day one and made learning to drive fun. I can't believe the level of care and attention he puts into every lesson and the way in which he always puts his pupils first. He's also such a lovely person to spend time with and I will miss our fantastic chats. I've not only learnt to drive, I've gained a friend!

Would You Recommend Us To Your Friends, If So, Why?
I cannot recommend Tim highly enough. I don't think there is a better driving instructor in London. Particularly if you are nervous about learning to drive or feel unconfident in your driving. Tim will believe in you and give you the confidence and skills you need to pass your test. The fact that I passed with zero faults is 100% down to Tim's patience and excellent teaching methods.

I'd had a few instructors before outside and inside London. Tim was by far the best, extremely patient and taught me to be a confident, good driver.
It is hard to find the right instructor but Tim really ticked all of the boxes. I would definitely recommend Tim to anyone learning how to drive.
Not only did I learn how to drive but actually Tim is very friendly and the 2 hour lessons became actually enjoyable rather than a chore. As someone fairly nervous about taking my test he really made me feel comfortable on the day.

What Our Customers Say October 2018 - Mick Hunter of Blackheath, London SE3



This review just received from Mick Hunter of Blackheath:

How Did Learning To Drive Compare To What You Expected?
I've tried to learn to drive before, and found this a lot less stressful than I expected because of the slow progression and well chosen locations. I never felt I was being pushed, and I always felt like I was gaining a solid understanding of the fundamentals of what I was doing.

How Did You Find Your Instructor's Teaching Methods?
Confident and helpful. Focusing on one thing at a time helped a great deal, and 'games' like calling out whether bus lanes are active and calling out when the speed limit changes were very useful for learning to notice those things.

Would You Recommend Us To Your Friends, If So, Why?
Absolutely. I passed my test on my first go, and I'd expected to have to take two or three stabs at it. The whole driving process was demystified, and by the time the test came, I felt incredibly relaxed and confident. I never expected to feel that way during my test, and with other instructors, I doubt I would have.

Why Did You Choose A Star Driving School?
Tim came highly recommended by family.

Off google.

How Did Learning To Drive Compare To What You Expected?
I had learned to drive an automatic 10 years ago so I had a vague idea of the structure learning to drive would take. The pace was much more manageable than I expected. There is no sense of rushing through lessons or milestones. I also didn't expect to learn so much about the car itself and understanding the function of gears, gas, breaks, wheels, etc which was extremely helpful.

How Did You Find Your Instructor's Teaching Methods?
Tim's teaching methods are thoughtful and effective. He is meticulous about instructing. He shapes each lesson and structures the course based on you and your needs as a learner driver while still getting through the syllabus. He is thorough in his explanations and balances each lesson perfectly with theoretical knowledge and practical knowledge. He listens intently to your concerns and reacts accordingly. He makes you feel comfortable and confident from day one. He also ensures that you are completely confident and proficient in each lesson before moving on to the next. I felt in safe hands throughout my time as a learner driver in London - which is no small feat.

Would You Recommend Us To Your Friends, If So, Why?
Of course. I would and will recommend in a heartbeat. I had such a great experience as a learner driver. I was comfortable, confident, and know that I gained a deep understanding of driving from theory to practical.
