Making me feel comfortable and in control at every stage.
“I took the 36 hour intensive driving course with Ron Hall and passed first time. I’d never driven before and was quite nervous, but Ron built up my skills in a structured way, making me feel comfortable and in control at every stage and taking me through the syllabus so that I peaked for my test. Ron is a very knowledgeable instructor and always helped me find a solution that worked for me whenever I found something difficult. He knew when he needed to be tough to ensure I really got the hang of something, but also knew when to encourage me and build up my confidence. The 36 hour course is demanding, but the time flew by and by the time I took the test it felt more like a demonstration of what a good driver I am, rather than an examination. I definitely couldn’t have got to that point without an excellent instructor, so thanks again to Ron – I’ll be back in a couple of months for the Pass Plus!” Chris Branson, Tooting, London
Please thank Tony for all of his help.
“I started learning to drive for the first time with Tony back in March 2012. I was not very confident behind the wheel to begin with but with his excellent tuition and friendly approach was able to pick it up relatively quickly. I took my test 3 weeks ago and am pleased to say that I passed first time with only 3 minors. I would highly recommend Tony to anyone looking to learn to drive. He is a fantastic instructor and with his infectious sense of humour makes lessons very rewarding and fun. ” Will Vane, Clapham, London
A great big thank you to my amazing instructor
“A great big thank you to my amazing instructor Aldona. I came to her following lessons with someone who destroyed my confidence and made me hate driving. She was so patient, kind and made driving so much easier and enjoyable. I would thoroughly recommend her to any nervous new drivers out there and I am planning on getting some extra lessons now I have passed to further improve my confidence with parking etc.”
Tara Coffin, Balham, London
thank you so much to my fantastic instructors
“I passed yesterday with just a couple of minor faults – thank you so much to my fantastic instructors Aldona & Ahmed who made sure I was much more ready for my test than when I last took it thirteen years ago!” Charlie Masding, Tooting Bec, London
Many thanks for everything
“Thanks so much for the tuition Russ, your teaching not only allowed me to pass my test with 1 minor, but also engrained vital skills, so I should be able to keep driving safely and confidently. The lessons were also very good fun and I found each one very enjoyable. Many thanks for everything.” Sam Cullen, Barnes, London
I still can’t believe I can now drive a car!
“I would just like to recommend my instructor Telmo for his excellant
teaching and patience. He is an amazing teacher and I passed first
time today (apart from failing 3 times 13 years ago!) I was very
nervous about driving and he really calmed me down and made me believe
I could pass. I still can’t believe I can now drive a car!” Janine Clegg, Earlsfield, London
I passed my practical driving test, first time!
“I decided to learn to drive in late January 2012 at 35 years old. My whole life I’ve had fear of driving but decided that sometime has to be the time to start. Gary was my instructor and he was AMAZING. He made me feel comfortable and pushed me quickly out of my comfort zone, which I believe is the reason I quickly became confident in my ability to drive. June 2012 I passed my practical driving test, first time! Thank you Gary for being a great instructor, would have cost me a fortune without you!” Tamara Kotovich, Earlsfield, London
Prices are great and the instructors very experienced
“I would like to thank Brian for all his help and guidance teaching me to drive. He is a great teacher, patient, calm and good company and thanks to him I passed my test first time despite feeling very nervous and being 6 months pregnant!
I would definitely recommend Wimbledon driving school to new drivers, their prices are great and instructors are very experienced with great knowledge of the test and local area.” Rebecca Robinson, Balham, London
patience and support in getting me through my driving test!
Just a quick line to say a million thank you’s to my instructor, Colin for all his patience and support in getting me through my driving test! Having come to Colin following my previous instructor moving out of the area, I was so heartened with his honesty regarding my standard of driving which he could have easily misled me on resulting in extra unnecessary hours of lessons.
Colin’s instruction was clear, encouraging and he was exceptional at boosting my (utter lack of) confidence, particularly on test day! WDS tuition is exceptionally competitive, with their hourly rates amongst the lowest in the area. I thoroughly recommend them to anyone longing to hear those 3 magic words…. “you have passed!”
Colette Bremang, Streatham, London
the best driving school in my professional opinion
“I’ve had many lessons, been through many driving schools and instructors; but Wimbledon Driving School helped me to pass. Russ and Farooq were my instructors and they were the best I have met. I am a TV producer and did a series about driving schools and this is the best driving school in my professional opinion.”
Rima Rouf, Tooting Bec, London
Learning to drive with WDS has been very positive
“My experience of learning to drive with Wimbledon Driving School has been very positive. An excellent instructor with many years of experience; flexibility when planning classes around my other commitments and the ability to have a mock test with a grade 6 Ordit instructor.”
Tom Lightowler, Raynes Park
helped me master my manoeuvers perfectly
“I thoroughly enjoyed learning with Claire at the Wimbledon School of driving! After initially learning with another driving instructor, I improved so much after learning with Claire. I can safely say Claire is a fabulous teacher, always enthusiastic and great at motivating me to learn to the best of my ability! Claire would always explain things thoroughly and clearly. Although I had already taken two driving tests before learning with Claire, she helped me master my manoeuvers perfectly and I passed in no time at all (in about 6 weeks)! I would recommend Claire to any of my friends and family, I’m sure my other two sisters will also be very happy to learn with her! I wish that I’d gone to Claire in the first place!
Laura Milone, Balham, London
how enjoyable the process was
“I’m a new driver and just wanted to write in to say thank you both to the WDS and my instructor, and give a testimonial about how enjoyable the process was! Ron Hall was my driving instructor, and with his expert tuition I passed my test first time. He was very good at working out my strengths and weaknesses and adapting his lesson plans accordingly, and his tuition was very friendly, patient, and encouraging. What’s more, I felt very safe behind the wheel from the beginning, in spite of my lack of experience. When it came to take the test he had taught me so much that it felt more like a formality than anything else! Also, he really recognised when I was ready to take the test and encouraged me to go for it in spite of my doubts. I’m very glad he did and have just finished the Pass Plus with him. I’m now looking forward to getting out on the road, thanks to the school and to Ron’s tuition.
All the best.”
Andy Murray, Raynes Park, London
I couldn’t recommend a better driving school
“Thank you Wimbledon Driving School. I moved to the area recently so didn’t have any idea about driving in London. Russ was extremely professional and a great instructor, he knows the area very well. I couldn’t recommend a better driving school.”
Joe Commoto, Wimbledon
I am able to drive very confidently
“Dear Bobby, I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for all the hard work you put in to get me through my driving test. I found learning to drive with you both a very enjoyable and relaxing experience due to your very calm and patient approach to teaching with a good amount of humour. I feel that I am able to drive very confidently on all roads and traffic conditions without having to think or hesitate about anything. Thank you again you have been a great instructor and I will have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone I know who is learning to drive.”
Phillip Turner, New Malden, Surrey.
a pinnacle force in driving me forward
“Where should I begin when through beginning to end I have had one of the best driving instructors in London.
I came across Wimbledon Driving School via internet search and although living a little out of Wimbledon they took me on. 2 reasons I would recommend them again – 1. You keep the same instructor throughout the learning process 2. Their approach to assessing your progress (a marker card) allows you to mark your achievements as and when you master them. These combined together, to me, encourage a sense of progression and consequently the building of confidence to become a safe independent driver.
To Vinney (My instructor) – Thank you! – Thank you for your teaching, support, great anecdotes and most of all believing in me. You have really been a pinnacle force in driving me forward both literally and on a personal level towards driving and test success. To have you as an instructor, I truely believe, the best of luck I could have had!”
Milena Mottram, Battersea, London
I knew Wimbledon Driving School was right for me
“It was my third go at learning to drive and I really needed my licence to give me more freedom. As soon as i had my first lesson i knew Wimbledon Driving School was right for me. My instructor was clear and concise and we followed a syllabus, which made learning each skill a lot easier. My instructor was completely professional and my confidence greatly increased. Out of all my past lessons i felt for once that i was competent enough to take my driving test.
Sabrina Scarpone, Wimbledon
lessons are the perfect balance of having fun
“From the first lesson I felt comfortable with Vinney. His lessons are the perfect balance of having fun and getting the job done. His experience, teaching skills and reference points are top notch and he has the patience of a Saint! I passed my test on the first go.
Thanks Vinney! Speak to you soon…
Take care – Linda”
Linda Lee, Sutton, Surrey
I am extremely happy with the lessons
“I must say that I am extremely happy with the lessons compared to the last driving school. I learnt so much more in just 3 lessons than I did in over 20 at my previous school. I am very confident that this school is one of the best in London, if not the best.”
Paul Tavarez, New Malden, Surrey
confidence and freedom I always wished for
“I am 36 and have never driven before, it always seemed like a massive mountain to climb.
I finally got so frustrated with public transport I threw all my energy into learning to drive. I chose the Wimbledon School of Driving because it was the cheapest by far. I was assigned Fred Gamblen who slowly started to show me the tricks I needed to survive on the London Roads, like covering every stop with my handbrake, if I didn’t now do this instinctively I would of crashed/bumped into many cars and walls in traffic and parking.
Three months after my first lesson I took my theory test and got 100% pass, four weeks later I took my practical test and passed first time.
I have been driving for one month now and have made it to Brighton twice on the M25 and M23 and drive the length of the A3 every morning and evening in rush hour, thanks Fred and the Wimbledon School of Driving for giving me the confidence and freedom I always wished for.”
Paul Dorrington, Wandsworth, London
I am really thankful to my instructor Russ
“I am really thankful to my instructor Russ. He is a very cool and calm person by nature. I used to do lots of faults and he used to advise how I should handle the situation and drive. My wife advised learning with Wimbledon Driving School as she passed first time with them. Now I recommend to all the person ‘Russ is the best’.”
Rakesh Vyas, Surbiton, Surrey.
The instructors are very friendly
“I am glad I enrolled at Wimbledon Driving School. Firstly the instructors are very friendly and adept at tutoring beginners and they helped me pass sooner than I myself expected. Also the rates are very affordable. I will definitely recommend them to anybody wishing to drive.
Thank you Wimbledon Driving School.”
Sherif Olanrewaju, Colliers Wood, London
I am not afraid to drive
“My name is Valentina and I live in Clapham. I just want to say thanks to my instructor , Gary Burgess. Thanks to him I am not afraid to drive and i have passed my practical test from the first time. He is very patient and a wonderful person! Thank you,Gary!”
Valentina Sandu, Clapham, London
found my instructor to be an excellent teacher
“Hello, last week I passed my driving test having learnt through the Wimbledon Driving School.
I just wanted to drop a quick line to say that I found my instructor (Suresh Thangarajah) to be an excellent teacher and that I think he prepared me for the test very well.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to others learning to drive.”
Orla May, Balham, London
Passed in ‘record time’ thanks to my instructor
“Thanks to Wimbledon Driving School, passed in ‘record time’ thanks to my instructor. I feel confident in driving and am looking forward to my future more than ever!”
Adam Young, Morden, Surrey
I was over the moon to pass the test
“I started with Wimbledon Driving School after a long stint with another instructor. So I was very nervous about doing it all over again but was very pleased by the standards and professionalism of my instructor. Patient and experienced he guided me through the difficult areas and made me feel confident to take the test. I was over the moon to pass the test and its all down to the training I received.
Thank you Wimbledon Driving School.”
Jyotish Balakrishnan, Colliers Wood, London
giving me my freedom back!
“I contacted Wimbledon Driving School to re-learn the art of driving after a 10 year hiatus. I had completely lost my confidence and having only ever driven in Australia before the whole thought of driving in London scared me half to death. It was difficult to find a school that offered automatic lessons and I had had a false start with another school who had stuffed me around with times and didn’t show for my first lesson.
I found Wimbledon driving school and within an hour or so of contacting them my instructor Gary called me to book my first lesson. From the minute I met him I knew I was in very capable hands and my confidence started to improve almost straight away.
He has eyes in the back of his head, is incredibly calm and focused, and conducts himself professionally with a great sense of humor.
I used to look forward to my lessons so much. In fact I miss him now that I have passed and am no longer seeing him every week. Thanks Gary for giving
me my freedom back!”
“I found my lessons with Wimbledon Driving School extremely helpful. The instructors were able to help me with all relevant skills with a lot of patience and courtesy. I felt confident to carry on at the end of every lesson.
I am very grateful for passing the test.”
Ana Barotto, Southfields, London
“was pleased by the level of teaching”
“To whom it may concern: I had a few driving lessons with Bobby and I found him to be very patient, thorough and helpful. He was quite clear about what was expected and was meticulous in his explanations and well organised. I changed driving schools and was pleased by the level of teaching I received and with Bobby’s help, I passed my driving test first time. If I know of anyone who needs driving lessons, I will be recommending Bobby and Wimbledon Driving School.”
Samantha Hannig, Wimbledon, London
made me feel very confident within myself.
“I have recently just passed my test after several attempts with 2 other driving instructors.I found gary very caring and patient & his techniques were very effective.Previously I was unable to do automatic lessons with my past driving instructors and was very happy to see that your driving school provided this service in my area of Clapham.I am so pleased that i have now passed my test and owe my sucess all to Gary who coached me and was very supportive as an instructor.His lessons were fun and he made me feel very confident within myself.
Thank you Gary you are brilliant xx”
Jinelle Gannon, Clapham, London
"Thanks for your help"
“Colin, has been a fantastic instructor! Thanks for your help.”
Chris Barresen, Colliers Wood, London.
thoroughly taking me through everything
“I approached Wimbledon Driving School after six hours with an instructor who not only turned up 45 minutes late for each lesson but who insisted upon pulling over to buy chicken wings, eating them while I was driving and then putting greasy fingers all over the wheel. My instructor at Wimbledon Driving School was like a breath of fresh air. He was thoroughly professional from start to finish, patiently and thoroughly taking me through everything I needed to know to pass my test, and boosting my confidence along the way. He even made my lessons fun. I managed to pass my test first time with two minor faults, which, judging by my skills when I first started, was a miracle. I owe a huge debt of gratitude to my instructor, who deserves a medal.”
Katie Scott, Earlsfield, London
motivated me throughout the time I was learning
“I would like to thank Fred my instructor who has helped me build my confidence and motivated me throughout the time I was learning. I have finally passed and I am sooo pleased. Fred was able to tell me exactly what I needed to do in order for me to pass and motivated me to do so. I have had such a good time being a learner driver and all my lessons were worthwhile. I also felt relaxed and at ease when learning with Fred. So I would like to say a BIG thank you to Wimbledon Driving School and to Fred. Carry on the hard work, you guys are great !!!!”
Melanie Soobrayen, Kingston, Surrey
very good instructor
“I had lessons with Steve Prior from WDS. I passed first time. Steve is a very good instructor.”
Ahmed Agtabaqchali, Kingston Upon Thames, Surrey.
The lessons always felt relaxed and fun
“Rob was my instructor at Wimbledon Driving School. From the begginning, I found him to be an excellent instructor who was very good at working out what my strengths and weaknesses were and then tailoring the lessons around what needed to be worked on. The lessons always felt relaxed and fun and Rob always kept things simple and memorable. His insights into the way that examiners think were particularly useful when it came to taking the practical test and he is also a calming presence to have around on test day.
I’m grateful to have had Rob as my instructor and would heartily recommend him to anyone preparing for the practical driving test.”
Dr Parth Paskaran, Putney, London.
have gained a lot of confidence
“Vinney, a big thanks for helping me pass my driving test at the first try! I thoroughly enjoyed our lessons and have gained a lot of confidence driving on the road because of you. Although I had previously driven in the States, I was nervous about driving on London’s tight roads and using roundabouts. Your teaching has helped laid those nerves to rest! As a mother with a baby, you were also very flexible and understanding with my schedule – so many thanks for everything!
Judy Tse, Wimbledon, London
worked tirelessly to help me improve
“I just wanted to say thanks to my instructor Tony Ramsay for his encouragement, teaching and patience. He took me on after I had booked my test in advance – 6 weeks to be exact because my theory was expiring in 10! I had failed 3 tests 18 years ago and had decided that I was never going to be seen to be confident on the road by any examiner. I thought I would give it one more try. I´m glad I did! After picking up so cleverly on my driving errors which caused my lack of confidence in the company of examiners, he worked tirelessly to help me improve and gain extra skills! I felt so confident on the exam itself that when we got back to the Test Centre I was smiling and anticipating a – “YOU HAVE PASSED”. Tony had reminded me that there is a “margin of errors” of 15 and he was expecting as little as possible! I thought I would maybe get 8-10 but I passed with only 3 - “Woo hoo! Thankyou!”
Manju Gujadhur, Streatham, London
had a very good and professional instructor
“I was with another driving school before Wimbledon Driving School. I had heard a lot of positive feedback about them so I decided to try them. Fortunately for me I had a very good and professional instructor named Russ who straight away knew what I needed to do to pass. What I like about my instructor is he always believed in me and gave both positve and negative feedback. He would never lie to me. I would just like to say a very big thank you to Russ and also to Wimbledon Driving School.”
Sean Hall, Roehampton, London.
wonderful instructor who taught me so many skills
“From my first call to Wimbledon Driving School and my first lesson with Vinney I had no doubt that I had made the right decision.
I would like to say a BIG thank you to Vinney for being a wonderful instructor who taught me so many skills. Not only does Vinney demonstrate the skills of a good instructor, but Vinney believes in his pupils. He encourages me, motivates me and he was always honest with me!
Today I am so happy to have passed my practical driving test and I would recommend Vinney to anyone who wants to learn automatic driving.
Vinney I cannot thank you enough for helping me achieve another goal – you are the best!!”
Nascene Simpson, Battersea, London
a very professional and excellent service
“My brother passed third time with one driving school, so I decided to give a different driving school the chance. This is why I went to the Wimbledon Driving School and they got me to pass first time. I found them to be a very professional and excellent service.”
James Millington, New Malden, Surrey.
An excellent driving instructor
“Vasantha was an excellent driving instructor. Very patient and calm. Well recommended.”
C Eldred, Raynes Park
made learning to drive an enjoyable experience
“Before I started with Wimbledon Driving School I had two lessons with two other driving schools with whom I was not content and found there to be a world of difference with Rob, the Wimbledon Driving School Instructor.
Rob was utterly professional, totally flexible and always prompt in turning up. He was also continuously conscious of completing the entire alloted time for which I was paying and overall made learning to drive an enjoyable experience. The cost was also the most reasonable I came across in my research.
I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this service to anyone hoping to gain their license.”
Gerry Ashison, SE1, London
so cooperative and friendly
“Mr Colin was so cooperative and friendly. Thanks Colin and Wimbledon Driving School.”
Fiaz Ekram, Clapham South, London.
I commend it highly and will recommend to others
“To Farooq & Wimbledon Driving School,
I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the excellent services of Wimbledon Driving School. I was very fortunate to pass my test for the first time on 8th May at Morden.
Farooq had the patience of a saint assisting me with his techniques and boosting my confidence on the roads. His sheer determination is an attribute to the quality of the staff at Wimbledon Driving School.
In regards to quality, Farooq showed up before my lessons 5/ 10 mins early. He managed the time efficiently and I always felt that I learnt more after each lesson. I never felt that I was inundated with too much information; driving skills and manoeuvres were carried out at a pace that I could manage. Farooq is an excellent tutor and very personable.
In regards to the school I commend it highly and will recommend to others.
Again I do appreciate everything. The price of the lessons are very reasonable, the cars are good quality and Farooq was an excellent tutor.
Thank you very much & wishing you all the best.”
Laura McGlynn, Earlsfield, London
I am elated to say that I passed first time

Carina Cristovao, Tooting Bec, London

Mary Stevenage, Morden, Surrey
Thank you so much for giving me my confidence back!
“Having learned before with a national driving school and failing my driving test (because I was pressured into taking it too quickly) I was reluctant to take another test! Four years on I found Wimbledon Driving School through a recommendation of a friend. They didn’t pressure me, took it slowly and built up my confidence until I and my instructor knew I was at test standard. My nerves disintegrated and I actually enjoyed the test.
Thank you so much for giving me my confidence back! I can’t wait to buy a car! And I will miss you.”
Rosalind Drury, Putney, London

From the beginning I found Rob to be an extremely good driving instructor. He made sure I felt comfortable, safe and at ease at all times and always gave clear and thorough explanations.. I was very impressed by his excellent way of teaching, demonstrating and instructing. I found Rob to be personable and friendly, yet always very professional.
Many of my friends and family members who learnt elsewhere, have not had such a positive experience with their driving instructors.
I am very pleased to have had Rob as my instructor as he made it a very enjoyable learning experience.
I would definitely recommend Rob as a fantastic driving instructor.”
Fleur Van Schalkwyk, Wimbledon, London.

I couldn’t have passed my test so quickly without your help.”
Beth Dowle, Balham, London.
is always ready to help you pass
Having just passed my practical test, I had the opportunity of having a professional Driving Instructor (Martin) as my teacher.
I must say that Martin is a fantastic instructor; he comes across as a teacher who is always ready to help you pass your test. He is very efficient and teaches in ways that help students in remembering the road signs, things to watch out for on the road, how to build your confidence and how to react to various situations.
I have enjoyed having Martin as my instructor. Apart from being a teacher he is also very jovial and he makes the hours you spend with him learning how to drive and pass worthwhile.
I will recommend Martin over and over again.”
Kemi Odukogbe, Wimbledon, London.
My confidence in my ability to drive grew

Thank you very much!!!”

corrected my bad old driving habit
Many thanks to Miguel who gave me excellent guidance and corrected my bad old driving habit (I am a licensed driver in Brazil for more than 15 years). He is fun, always in fantastic mood and can make two hour driving lessons enjoyable and therefore more productive. I failed on my first test as I ‘misunderstood’ the examiners command, but booked for a month later and passed with only 3 faults. Miguel is just the right instructor if you are already an experienced driver but new to the UK, plus his little blue car has green credentials! I am a bit of green freak so driving a car with less CO2 emissions is fundamental. Cheers, Miguel.
Alice Hsieh, Wimbledon, London
not once did I feel pressurised
To Whom it may concern,
I passed my driving test 1st first time having taken lessons with Muqurram Farooqi and the Wimbledon Driving School.
I started from scratch having never got behind the wheel of a car previously and so was delighted with the results.
The lessons were the cheapest on the market, Farroqi was always on time and not once did I feel pressurised into taking more lessons than was necessary.
I am a very happy customer.
D.Scott Cree, Putney, London
explanations and instructions were very clear
I got in touch with Wimbledon Driving School after two unsuccessful test attempts with another school. My new instructor Farooq was very encouraging and patient, and helped me to drive more fluently and take decisions more quickly. He is very reliable and personable and his explanations and instructions were very clear and easy to follow. Thanks to Farooq’s help, I passed!”
Katy Roberts, Wandsworth, London
style of teaching very easy to understand and remember
Recently I decided to learn to drive with Wimbledon Driving School as they were highly recommended and their rates were very competitive. Farooq was my instructor and I found his style of teaching very easy to understand and remember. I was very confident in my test and I passed first time. Although Farooq wasn’t with me on the driving test I could still hear him advising me at every junction, stop and turn. I would fully recommend Wimbledon Driving School to anyone wanting to take up driving lessons.
Mark Palmer, Wimbledon, London
was given the confidence I needed to pass
Thanks to my instructor Farooq from Wimbledon Driving School, I passed my driving test first time, with only 2 minor faults. I’ve had lots of different instructors so it was great to find someone who was able to teach me the way I needed to learn. Being a slow learner, I was given the confidence I needed to pass by careful and patient instruction. None of the other instructors I’ve had were able to do this. Thanks Wimbledon Driving School and thanks Farooq!
Dom Risso-Gill, Battersea, London
taught me everything in detail
Today I passed my driving practical test.
During the test, I realized that I learnt a lot from you. I kept thinking, luckily Miguel has told me this, has instructed me that and has told me not to do that. Without taking driving lessons with you, I would never have passed the test.
The test seemed so easy. The best thing is: you taught me everything in detail.
Hence, I believe that I should tell you this: Miguel, you are the best! I would recommend you to any other person who asked for advise on who is a good driving instructor.
Keep up the good work mate, and once again many thanks for being my driving instructor.
Andrew Soesanto, Wimbledon, London
Thanks to the good teaching
I was delighted with my instruction from Wimbledon Driving School. Farooq was patient, explained everything clearly and taught me well. He was always on time or early and concentrated entirely on me during the lessons. Thanks to the good teaching, I passed first time!
Dom Parikh, Barnes, London
patient tutoring, skill and support
Just wanted to drop you an email to underline my thanks and gratitude for all your help and guidance. To have passed was obviously great, but to have passed with zero faults is entirely a credit to your patient tutoring, skill and support. You will recall that at the first of what is really only a few lessons together I was no shining star in the driving world. So the improvement in a few short weeks is totally down to you, and I am very grateful and am of course thrilled with the result. I would heartily recommend you to anyone setting out on this “journey” as I cannot imagine a better instructor and Wimbledon Driving School are lucky to have you on the team.
Again, many many thanks.
Very best regards,
Cathal O’ Reilly, Wimbledon, London
“the best in my experience”
“I must say Wimbledon Driving School is the best in my experience. I have been with Britannia, BSM and Magnum but this school has the best professionals of the lot. When I first met Shahid (my instructor) he told me straight away what I needed to do to pass my test. Only 12 hours later I had passed my test with only 3 minor faults. Thank you so much Wimbledon Driving School.”
Waseem Khan, Tooting, London.
classes are well-structured and always punctual
I would definitely recommend Ronald Hall as a driving instructor. He is a very friendly chap, very committed, his classes are well-structured and always punctual. He speaks clearly so that it is easy for you to understand what is required for you to pass the driving test. I passed mine at the first attempt.
Thank you Ron!
Hope to see you soon.
Jason Chu, Colliers Wood, London
gave me loads of confidence!
Claire was an excellent driving instructor, professional, friendly and she gave me loads of confidence! Even when I was not quite getting a manoeuvre right she always had a smile on her face and was full of encouragement. It was a real pleasure being taught by Claire. We had lots of fun!
Sonia Weir, Streatham, London
I thoroughly enjoyed the experience
“I’d really like to thank Miguel so much for his patience and professionalism and friendliness thorughout my driving training experience. I had a bad experience when I tried to take my licence in 2003 – Miguel outclassed the big chain I went with in leaps and bounds and I was very lucky to have him and, having had a bad experience before, appreciated him even more. He was positive, professional, punctual, relaxed and easy to get along with – inspiring me with confidence even when the manouevres left me distraught! I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would highly recommend Miguel as a driving instuctor extraordinaire! I passed with confidence – all thanks to him! Good luck Miguel – and to anyone who gets him as their instructor – enjoy! It was a pleasure! Thanks so much!
My Mom is thrilled, now that I’m back in SA and able to ferry her and her ‘old dears’ to church services every morning. Not so sure about the 7am starts though!
Thanks Miguel. You really are a gem. Hope all goes well with you. x Deirdre”
Deirdre Moir, Raynes Park, London
Each lesson was well structured and very productive
“I would highly recommend Russ as an excellent driving instructor. After many lessons and failed tests with other driving instructors, I was so pleased to finally pass first time with Russ.
Russ’ high standard was conveyed from the very first lesson; out of all my past instructors I was immediately confident in Russ’ competency as an instructor.
Russ’ attention to detail is brilliant; mistakes were highlighted and corrected immediately. His ability to be firm as well as friendly created the perfect balance.
He addressed my weaknesses instead of labouring my strengths in which I have found other instructors have done.
Each lesson was well structured and very productive. Lessons included mock tests which enabled me to see the standard required for the test, which essentially prepared me most effectively. I would recommend Russ to anyone seeking to learn how to drive, he is personable, a great teacher and has an excellent pass rate.
I would also like to thank Rob from the Wimbledon Driving School who was also an outstanding teacher, who taught me the fundamentals of driving.”
Colleen McGregor, Putney, London
clear and concise
I just want to take a moment to give praise to an employee of yours, Aziz.
His training methods have been such that I believe I am not too far from test standard and in a shorter time then I expected.
He communicates well and always remains calm, clear and concise thus relaying his composure to me whilst driving.
I felt it prudent to let you know the caliber of teacher he is as I like to give praise where it is deserved.
I will definitely be recommending him to friends and family in the future.
Chirag Vaid, Streatham, London
help me focus and plan for the examination
“I can’t recommend the Intensive driving course highly enough. The course is individually designed according to your ability and timetable. My instructor Ronald Hall was a great teacher; very calm, thorough and a great communicator.
I was very nervous approaching my test, but Ron was able to help me focus and plan for the examination. I passed first time and just want to thank Ron and everyone at the school!!”
Zeeba Kinoo, Tooting Bec, London
made learning easier than my previous experiences
Dear Wimbledon Driving School,
I am writing to you today to offer my sincere thanks for the service you provided in helping me pass my driving test recently.
Having struggled with instructors previously (one retired during our initial few lessons and another decided to not turn up for lessons) I found Wimbledon Driving School online and signed up in the hope that I would have no more issues. By this point I had already failed one test, so was anxious not to waste any more money.
What I have got far exceeded my own expectations and enabled me to not only pass the next test, but to do so with only one minor mark, therefore underlining the quality of the service they provided me. From the word go, my instructor Martin Weller was able to spot exactly where my weaknesses were, what areas needed improvement and relate them in a clear and concise manner that made learning easier than my previous experiences.
Your rates were one of the most competitive I have seen and the professionalism of the company was also one of the best I had come across. From the information I was given right down to keeping tabs of payments. I couldn’t fault it in any way.
I wish I had found Wimbledon Driving School sooner as it would have saved me a lot of time and money and I have no doubt whatsoever that I would have passed first time if I had been with you.
Steve Key, Fulham, London
Always punctual, professional and friendly
“I would like to thank my instructor, Aziz, who was always punctual, professional and friendly. He had a calm teaching style which helped me feel more confident and relaxed. He was patient and respectful of my speed of learning yet always focused on improvement and an eventual pass. It is certainly thanks to him that I passed first time with only four minors. I’ve have no hesitation in recommending Aziz to anyone learning to drive.”
Ruth Rogers, Wimbledon, London
Top quality driving instructor
“Hi my name is Brigitte Hollis and I live in Morden and went with Rachel from Wimbledon driving school for my driving lessons. I am 33 years of age and have always been a bit nervous about driving but from the time I got into the vehicle with Rachel, she put me at ease and I felt my confidence grow lesson by lesson. Rachel is extremely patient and thorough and I would recommend her for anybody that is looking for a top quality driving instructor. Thanks to Rachels training and guidance – i obtained my driving licence on the first attempt.”
Brigitte Hollis, Morden, Surrey
Won’t let you waste your time
“Miguel gives clear instructions, he’s patient, isn’t short with you and does his best to simplify his instructions so you can understand them in the easiest way.
I was learning for around a year with Miguel on and off due to money issues and not having access to a family or friends car to practice up until the last month so my only driving practice for the most part came with Miguel.
He won’t let you waste your time taking a test unless he knows you are ready, which is good because I passed first time. He gives you great preparation for your test by going over the show and tell questions and giving last minute tips and reminders and makes sure you go into the test in a calm and confident manner.
His only short coming is he’s a Chelsea fan, but we can’t all be perfect can we, eh?”
Jack Wild, Wimbledon, London
Explains everything clearly and simply
“Aziz is a great driving instructor. He explains everything clearly and simply and makes sure you understand. He never rushes you and makes you feel completely comfortable in all the driving you do. After failing my test a few times and not driving for over a year, Aziz had me ready for my test in about 6 weeks, which I passed. I’ll definitely be recommending him to friends and family in future. Thank you, Aziz!”
Bianca Dawson, Mitcham, Surrey
I passed with confidence
“I had been taught how to drive by Farooq, who was helpful and talented in teaching me how to drive. I passed with confidence thanks to Wimbledon driving school. I would recommend the school to all my friends and family. I passed with 1 minor fault thanks to Farooq. I wish him good luck .”
Abdul Malik Rana, Southfields, London
An excellent and experienced driving instructor
I just wanted to say a huge thanks to my instructor, Keith Carbery. He is an excellent and experienced driving instructor. He helped me to gain back my confidence to pass my driving test. I am hugely grateful for his patience, encouragement and his fantastic tuition. I strongly recommend Keith as an instructor to anyone who intends to pass their test at high standards. Maryam Saniei, Raynes Park, London
Passed my test under Tony’s tutelage
“I originally had an instructor who was a complete waste of time and actually did more damage to me by teaching me how to drive badly. I decided to get a new instructor and was booked in for a lesson with Tony. After only a few lessons I immediately started to notice how much I was improving. Tony is an excellent teacher but what makes him even better than excellent is that he cares. He cares whether you are happy, he cares whether you feel like you are improving and he cares if you pass your test. I passed my test under Tony’s tutelage and would recommend him highly to anyone who wants a teacher to care about them and not just be happy taking their money. Thanks Tony!!”
Azim Mahmood, Streatham, London
No hesitation in recommending Rob
“Prior to Robert Russell becoming my driving instructor I had a very poor experience with a well known national driving school and had been completely put off in trying to get behind the wheel again. That changed when I had our first daughter and I knew then that it was vital for me to learn to drive. My husband screened a number of driving schools explaining the previous bad learning experience and that I was very reluctant to get behind the wheel and low in confidence. Following a chat with Rob my husband recommended that he would be the perfect driving instructor for me, and I wasn’t let down at all. From the first lesson I knew straight away that he was the right choice. Not only was Rob a great teacher, with the ability to explain things in a simple way (not easy with English being my second language) he also made learning to drive a fun experience, which was a first for me. I would have no hesitation in recommending Rob as a driving instructor of choice.”
Clara Lopez, Wimbledon, London
I really appreciated your patience
“Hello again Miguel. Just wanted to write and say seriously thanks so much for being an excellent instructor. You made the time fly by and made me feel completely relaxed about learning to drive. Working in sales I know how stressful it can be dealing with customers so I really appreciated your patience. I’ve gone from being a nervous wreck to a confident happy motorist; courtesy of you, Miguel and Wimbledon Driving School.
Make sure to pop by ASAP so I can oblige you with a drink (let me know what you like mate so I can get you a bottle!). Thanks again!”
Robert Long, Morden, Surrey.
Sincerely recommend Bobby as a driving instructor
“A friend recommended Bobby Esua as my new driving instructor after I started to get frustrated with the slow progress I was making with learning to drive.
From the first lesson, Bobby focused on getting me through the test. He was extremely reliable and always gave the impression that he was 100% committed to my success.
Thanks to Bobby’s thoroughness and comprehensive lessons, I passed my driving test at the first attempt.
I sincerely recommend Bobby as a driving instructor.”
Louise Zitkus, Wimbledon, London
Has a very calm and positive approach
“Aziz Ayaz is a great driving instructer. I had not driven a car for four years, as I had been living in Hong Kong. I wanted to do refresher lessons so I would feel safe driving my kids around and we also switched to an automatic car. I did a total of five lessons and this was all I needed to feel much more confident behind the wheel. Aziz has a very calm and positive approach and really helped me to become a better, more confident and most importantly safer driver. I will be signing up my husband for driving lessons very soon!”
Diane King, Tooting, London
Good quality and high standards of his teaching
“From the very first lesson I had with my driving instructor Tony,I felt immediately at ease and confident, that I was in safe hands.
Tony is always clear and concise in his teaching, and is always more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
I am so glad that I found an excellent driving instructor like Tony. His bubbly, warm and friendly personality, made my lessons enjoyable, which allowed me to relax and focus on improving my driving skills.
It has been a pleasure to be his student,and the good quality and high standards of his teaching, bear testimony to the successful outcome of my driving test today!!
I would DEFINETELY recommend Tony to family, friends and anyone who is reading this!!!
THANK YOU TONY.
Keep up the good work !! ”
Rochelle Smythe, Streatham, London
I couldn’t have achieved all these without you..
Just a quick email to say thank you: I passed my test this week, first time, with only 1 minor fault. I have absolutely zero doubt in my mind that this is all down to the lessons I had with Keith Carberry. Your office had pre warned me that he was quite strict, but I’d rather him be tough with me so I know what I’m up against with the examiner. Previous to Keith I had been training with a different driving school, but decided to change as he was giving me inconsistent advice and wasn’t pulling me up on mistakes I knew I was making (let alone all of the others I wasn’t aware of at that stage). In all honesty I learnt more in one lesson with Keith than I did in 5 lessons with my previous instructor. Wish I’d have found Keith first as it would have saved me a tonne of money! Anyway at the end of my test the examiner said to me “that was absolutely spot on”. No better reflection on your tuition than those words.. Thanks guys!
Damian Comans, North London
Very impressed with your tuition
I just wanted to thank you so much for all the help you have given Eliza with learning to drive.
She’s so pleased to have passed her test and you have really built up her confidence in her driving ability, which she had totally lost before she started having lessons with you.
She began to enjoy her lessons which she hadn’t done with her previous two instructors and became much more focused, believing she could and would pass.
I will definitely recommend you to friends learning to drive, and I have already given your name to William Scarfe, who I know is very impressed with your tuition.
With many thanks again and all good wishes Henrietta Petit, Wandsworth, London
Tailoring the lessons to suit my preferences
Thank you for your time over the phone today. I just wanted to write a quick message to officially thank my instructor Adan for all his help in assisting me in passing my driving test first time.
From the first lesson, Adan was fantastic in pushing/encouraging me, tailoring the lessons to suit my preferences ( and v.short attention span) and making me feel at ease behind the wheel. I was really impressed with his passion, drive (please excuse the pun) especially his eye for detail to my driving style.
I would be grateful if you could please pass this on to him.
P.S I really recommend getting a water dispenser for the test centre. Had a dry throat 10 mins before the test and no water to quench my anxieties
Pali Palavathanan, Tooting, London
Amazingly managed to teach me from scratch
Hi, I would like to thank Ron for getting me through my driving test!!!!
He amazingly managed to teach me from scratch in ONLY NINE DAYS!!!!
Not only had he the patience of a saint he managed to make it fun at the same time. His fussiness and attention to detail is probably what got me through. During the test I kept hearing a little Ron sitting on my shoulder telling me what to do.
I still I can’t believe I passed in such a short time!!
Thanks Ron, you are AMAZING!!!
All the best,
Iria Caride, Putney, London
The person behind my success at driving
To whom it may concern,
I am writing in regards to Mr A Ayaz.
Previous I have had lessons with other instructors in other driving schools (such as AA), through it I gained experience but I didn’t feel confident whilst driving with them as they made me feel nervous with their approach and their teaching.
I came across Wimbledon driving school online and lucky enough Aziz was to become my instructor and the person behind my success at driving.
Aziz is a very calm and professional person, who identified where I was lacking and helped boost my confidence whilst remaining “brisk and business like”.
Aziz made my lessons enjoyable and comfortable, allowing me to brush up on the experience I had in a short time.
As I was working with a set deadline, Aziz pushed me and set challenges in a motivating manner and with realistic goals, which benefited me greatly as I am now a qualified, confident and safe driver.
I would like to thank him and praise him for his excellent work and approach as I feel he truly is a great teacher.
Finally I would like to mention that Aziz gave me long term experience as he not only taught me to test standard but above. I feel I gained the experience that will make me a better and safer driver for life.
I will definitely recommend Aziz to family and friends in the near future.
Thank you for taking time out to read this email.
Heba Keshk, Fulham, London
Extremely complimentary about your teaching and instruction
I just wanted to email you to say thank you for helping my wife, Katie, through her driving test. She has been extremely complimentary about your teaching and instruction since her first lesson and I am very grateful that you were able to build her confidence to a level where she was able to take the test successfully. It means a huge amount for both of us for her to have the freedom to drive and much of that is down to your excellent instruction.
I wish you a very good weekend and thank you so much again.
Kind regards, Hugo Ure, Southfields, London
Has an advantage having been an instructor
“As a South African re-taking their practical in the UK, it can be nervy. Minor difference in rules and narrow roads are off putting. David has an advantage having been an instructor in SA and now in the UK as well. He can point out the differences in changing from SA driving to UK driving. He is very patient and clear in his directions which makes learning very easy. I would highly recommend him and for proof I passed first time!”
Tanya Jones, Raynes Park, London
Level of your service is pure professional
“Having just passed my test first time, I would like to say a big thanks to Wimbledon Driving School and my driving instructor Tony Ramsey.
Thank you so much Tony for your all-time patience and great support which picked me up at the points when I was lacking in confidence. When teaching you don’t only teach the “how”s but also the “why”s, it makes the learning process so efficient and enjoyable. I’ll sure remember the lessons as well as a valuable and great experience in life.
I feel so lucky that I chose WDS. The level of your service is pure professional and your instructor is indeed excellent.
Thanks again WDS and Tony, I’m so happy with the result and would definitely recommend it to friends!”
Weina Wang, Battersea, London
Thank you for the excellent tuition
I just wanted to write and say thank you for the excellent tuition you gave me through Wimbledon Driving School. As a older learner with no experience of driving, your patience and a calm manner were an essential part of enabling me to pass my driving test first time.
Thank you very much.
Dr. Robert Porteous, Wandsworth Common, London
Extremely professional in his approach to teaching
“Before I came to Wimbledon Driving School, I was slightly disheartened as I had a bad experience with my previous instructor. From the moment I sat in the car, Russell (my instructor) made me feel completely comfortable, and made learning to drive an absolute joy. Russell was extremely professional in his approach to teaching, as well as being friendly and a pleasure to drive with. He quickly smoothed out my faults, and gave me a new confidence to my driving – and I would look forward to my lessons at the weekend. And as a result, I passed first time! I would definately recommend Wimbledon Driving School!
Thank you Russell for being an amazing driving instructor – for your patience and your A* teaching (and calming my nerves before the test)!” The Honourable Rebecca Bilek-Chee, Chelsea, London
The best decision I have made
“I would definitely recommend Wimbledon Driving School to anyone. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. My instructor was patient, punctual, honest and very friendly. I was a bit apprehensive before I started learning but soon I was relaxed and enjoying my lessons thanks to Russ. It was the best decision I have made for a long time. Thanks again for helping me pass at the first attempt.” Chris Heath, Tooting, London
