"I did a lot of looking around online before contacting Pete to see if I could learn to drive with him, based off the countless reviews of others and his years of experience and accreditation, and I'm so glad that I did. Now that I've passed (first time!) it's a real pleasure being able to add another testimonial to the wall. He really is an outstanding driving instructor, a genuinely awesome guy, and I can't recommend him enough. I was a bag of nerves even thinking about getting in the driver's seat after putting learning off until my 30's, but after the first lesson I always looked forward to every single one afterwards with him, never feeling overwhelmed or worried. He's an extremely good communicator, encourages you at the right times and knows how to go through mistakes with you in a constructive way that helps you learn from them and improve going forward. It definitely felt like I was learning from someone who didn't just want me to be good enough to pass my test, but instil habits that would make me a good driver full stop. There isn't anyone else I'd want to do my Pass Plus with and I look forward to getting in the car with him again for a few hours. Cheers Pete!"

Due to nerves, I have been unable to take the bull by the horn so to speak. After initially deciding the time is right, I researched the internet for the best of the best, and believe you me, I found him in Pete. I can not sing his praises to much, patient and always on time and never let you down for your lesson, as I have heard loads of other instructors have. His website is very informative and very clear to read. with lots of handy tips. Pete has helped me to achieve passing my driving test within 4 months..Marvelous.

"Even though I was desperate to pass, driving didn't necessarily come naturally to me, or at least some parts of it, and it's not something that I've always dreamed of doing. However, Pete made sure that every single lesson was a great experience and something that I looked forward to, even the ones at 8.30 on a Friday night! I couldn't have passed without him, he's a fantastic tutor and a top man. I'd recommend him to anyone."

"We would highly recommend Pete to anyone wishing to learn from scratch. Our daughter was very comfortable with him and he gauged how well she was doing before suggesting we could take her out with us. I would also like to plug Provisional Marmalade for provisional driving insurance. We progressed from double lessons to single lessons quickly and geared back up to double lessons just prior to taking her test in West Wickham. Passed first time thanks to Pete!! Pete was very good at gauging whether or not she was ready and fed back to us accordingly."

"I always looked forward to my driving lessons with Pete and I will miss them now that I have passed my test! His feedback is always constructive and he thoroughly prepares you for becoming a confident driver on the roads. He uses an iPad to show you simulations of situations that you could face to aid your understanding and the discussion helps you to approach them in real life. I really appreciate how calm and patient Pete is and look forward to doing Pass Plus with him soon! Thank you, Pete!"

His use of visual aids (on the iPad) really helped me and made me more confident when facing the situation in real life. He is calm and patient and explains everything clearly using numerous examples. And he is always completely open to questions. He gave me so much confidence in my driving - Thank you Pete! "

"If someone would have told me not so long ago that by the beginning of this year, I would not only pass my driving test, but also be able to drive confidently on my own, I would have most probably laughed... a lot... for I have never, in million years, seen myself as a "driver." The whole idea of driving scared me to the core; so when my hubby, after numerous persuasive hints, convinced me to take up driving lessons, I didn't hold much hope! I expected the lessons to be boring, scary and intimidating but in reality they were nothing but. For a start, Pete is an excellent teacher!!!! He is extremely patient, so,so calm, well spoken, encouraging (he always gives praise when praise is due) and his criticism is very constructive (it's almost impossible to take it personally). His teaching methods are excellent and very effective. Pete teaches how to drive for life not just to pass the test. Besides his outstanding teaching qualities (I defy anyone who has no interest in driving not to be genuinely enthused by Pete's teaching skills) Pete is also a lovely family person and puts you at ease from lesson one, minute one!! There were times when I laughed so much whilst driving that I had to take a deep breath! I would highly recommend Pete to anyone (" lost causes" like me included:-)). Pete, thank you for being so patient with me. I promise I will remember blind spots and not to rush things :)"

Pete makes the lessons both enjoyable and comfortable while making sure I had achieved what I needed to during the lesson. Without his help I would not be as confident a driver as I am. Thank You!"


Posted On: Wednesday, November 6, 2013

"Fantastic teacher, very patient and very encouraging. He will point out a mistake you may make during a lesson in a very composed and precise manner. His visual teaching method was also perfect for me (use of ipad for driving scenarios). I had been learning how to drive for the past 4 years on and off. I had already been through 2 instructors with AA and Red Driving school and decided that I needed an independent instructor with a wealth of experience. Pete was that man. I did an intensive week with him and passed! Will be recommending him to anybody learning how to drive regardless of their level."

Nathan Ababio

Posted On: Tuesday, November 5, 2013

"Having been taught to drive by a family friend, Pete agreed to give me a double lesson to improve my weak areas before my test. This consisted of working mainly on manoeuvres and the smoothness of my driving. Pete is superb at building confidence: his feedback is positive yet honest, his outlook is enthusiastic yet objective. He has an eye for the details that make you seem more experienced than a learner. For example, he encouraged me to stop a metre away from traffic lights when at the front of the queue instead of going right to the line, to give a better view of the junction ahead and to allow room for manoeuvre in the event of something unexpected (e.g. an emergency vehicle coming from behind). His precision helped me to pass first time. I would unhesitatingly recommend him to anyone regardless of background or experience. "

"Pete is the best instructor I have come across, hands down. VERY methodical, and an extremely talented teacher who is able to put the instructions across clearly, succinctly and is gifted with a sense of patience and the ability to use positive confirmation in a way to increase the student's confidence. He's also a really nice guy, treating each lesson with utmost importance and in a complete way (especially if you take a double or triple lesson at a stretch) - in a way that you feel that if your test is tomorrow you will have covered sufficiently to pass the test. I highly recommend him to anyone and especially to those who may have jumped from one instructor to the next in attempting to pass the test. Thanks Pete, you made all the difference to us."

"I'd started and stopped lessons, but finally decided to get my act together this year and focus on doing my test, and there is absolutely no way I would have been able to do it without Pete's help. I'm not a natuaral driver, but Pete put me at complete ease during my lessons, and made me feel really comfortable (literally, he has a handy cushion to boost your height if you're titchy). He's incredibly patient, even when you make silly errors, and occasionally manages to crack the odd joke or two - I genuinely looked forward to my lessons! I would highly recommend him to anyone, and just want to thank him for helping me pass my test first time, today! :D"

"Couldn't really ask for a better instructor! All my friends moan about their impatient instructors and how they feel like it's more about the money they are handing over and not really about them and the actual service. Pete was amazing from the start and very well worth the money. Pete doesn't actually advertise other than this website and all the people he teaches are from recommendation! He told me before my test that he is so full up that it's leading onto his weekends! Defiantly recommend. Superb service and yet again, thanks for teaching me Pete! "

"I really couldn't reccomend Pete McGrath more highly. As a teacher, Pete's lessons were always well planned and tailored to my personal needs, and he would give practical and sensible advice. Equally as importantly, Pete is just generally a really nice bloke and made me feel very relaxed from the first lesson. I learned the basics in Pete's car and although i took the test in my own, I would have happily taken it in the peugeot. All in all i would highly reccomend him and i'll definitely be doing pass plus as soon as my exams end. Cheers Pete."

"After years of putting off driving I finally plucked up the courage to learn and couldn't have picked a better instructor. Pete was calm, patient, fun and flexible about fitting in with my work. He was also very good at explaining things and coping with my inability to tell my left from my right under pressure! I would happily recommend Pete to anyone who has been nervous about learning. I passed first time and have the confidence to be out on the roads on my own."

""When I met you I was but the learner, now I am the master" I'm a 27 year old who wasn't particularly looking forward to a stroppy instructor telling me off all the time, but Pete was an outstanding instructor who helps you chill out and recognises what you have to work on to pass. I'm kinda gunna miss just going out for a drive. Pete will you take £10/hr for your company. Nice one Pete. I love you Man.."

"Pete has been truly superb as a teacher, dynamically combining endless patience with rigorous precision. I couldn't ask for a better instructor and he should be proud to stand above us mere mortals as one of a kind. I have thoroughly enjoyed all our lessons, even whilst stalling at traffic lights and hitting starlings at 70mph... ...And, to top it all off, he's a safe bloke too! "

"I had a number of lessons with another instructor when I was 19 and never felt comfortable behind the wheel. As a result I did everything I could to avoid driving for 10 years, during which time, passing my test and getting my licence became a bit of a psychological hurdle. I gave Pete a call as he had helped my brother through his test and really have to thank him for helping me pass my test and enjoy driving again. Pete quickly got to grips with my driving and where I needed to make improvements to be a better driver. His calm demeanour made learning effortless and good sense of humour made lessons enjoyable, even after a long day at work. Pete quickly equipped me with the ability and confidence to take my test, which I passed first time. What an excellent driving instructor. Thanks Pete."

"Driving with Pete was a luxury. I doubt there are many instructors who have such a genuine outlook on driving tuition. Out of 20 lessons with Pete, there wasn't a single one where I didn't feel excited beforehand. With his help, I was able to sit my driving test completely relaxed and confident, and as a result, pass first time! His methods are excellent, and most of all, you learn to enjoy your driving experience. "

He always praised me whenever I had done something perfectly or corrected myself accordingly. Whenever i did something wrong, he wouldn't get angry, he would explain why and how you should have gone about the problem! Thanks Pete again for being so helpful and I hope to see you again soon!

"Having a rubbish driving instructor from the AA, previously before I had Pete, I must say that the quality of the service provided is at a massive contrast. Pete's methods of teaching was incredible compared to those provided by such a recognised company. Pete made driving fun, and easy to learn, and if it was not for him, I doubt I would not of passed first time. He made driving an absolute pleasure, and I would seriously recommend him to anyone. "

Thanks to Pete i also passed both the theory and practical test first time. Pete doesn't just teach you what you need to pass the test, he teaches you all you need to be a good safe driver afterwards, which is just as important as passing!! i would like to thank pete for guiding me through both tests, i wouldn't have wanted to learn with anyone else and would strongly recommend him.
