The ability to form and maintain this trust between a tutor and student is a fantastic quality for a driving instructor to possess and Nicky achieved it effortlessly. I guarantee
that any new or experienced drivers will also benefit in a similar way upon getting tuition from The Driving Academy. I would like to give you all a huge ‘thank you’!"

My Driving Instructor, Taniya, guided me through all aspects of my Theory and Practical Test. I honestly couldn't have got through it without her. She was very patient and a fantastic support. Her knowledge was outstanding and she made it her mission to make me the best driver I could be. I only wish I'd had Taniya as a Driving Instructor 16 years ago.
