Testimonials

Laura was an amazing instructor. I was extremely nervous to start driving but laura put me right at ease and quickly made me enjoy driving. Laura’s instructions were clear cut and easy to follow, allowing me to quickly pick up all the manoeuvres. The moment I sat in the car to take my test I felt completely confident and passed first time with zero minors! I can’t recommend Laura and compass pro drive enough.

I had such an amazing experience with Compass ProDrive and Laura. I passed first time and with so much encouragement I have achieved a great life skill. Laura couldn’t have been any better than she was.

I would definitely recommend Steve Jackson as a driving instructor. Learning to drive can be one of the stressful things you could ever do, but he always made me feel comfortable and calm during lessons. The tuition was of excellent quality, and I was never made to feel uncomfortable or stressed out. Being a good instructor means you have to be a good teacher as well as a good people person.. for that reason I would definitely recommend Steve as an instructor

I’d like to send a huge thanks to Steve for helping me pass my test first time! When I first contacted Compass ProDrive I had already had a few lessons with a well known company, but had found the teaching to be strict and not enjoyable. I had passed my test years ago in Malaysia after years battling personal fear of driving and had built it up in my head that I couldn’t do it again, I felt my knock back with the previous instructor might have made me give up completely. Thank god I was recommended Compass ProDrive, as the patient, fun and adaptable way in which Steve approached my lessons meant that all fear, lack of belief in myself and nerves about driving gradually disappeared and I now feel a confident, safe and capable driver.
I couldn’t recommend them enough, shame about his football team... But we all have to have our faults! Thanks again Steve!

Passed my test with Laura. When I started I honestly didn’t think I would be able to get to grips with it at all but Laura was so calm and despite me mucking up a lot always reassured me! It never felt like a lesson with all the chatting but she still managed to teach me and I was surprised at how confident I was at driving! Can’t thank you enough!
