My driving instructor was excellent. His name is 'Paul C' and he is from 1st Class Driving ( (he covers SE1). He was absolutely perfect in all respects and will let you dictate the pace you proceed at etc. As it happens, I passed my test in less than 20 lessons. Very nice guy too!

And, no, I'm not a relation/friend of his, just a satisfied ex-pupil!

I highly recommend First Class too, I had an instructor called Chris who was brilliant. Took me a bit longer than 20 lessons to learn (very nervous driver!) but they offered block booking deals and were very flexible about lesson times etc.

oh and I too am just a satisfied customer! I honestly thought I would never learn to drive!

My husband has been getting lessons off someone based in Waterloo Road, you can contact her at [email protected] or 07949069866.

It's 18 an hour for locals (though I'm not sure what the definition of this is). She seems very good, but he's not yet ready to take his test so I don't know if he will pass.

I've had 4 driving lessons with Alison after seeing this, and I'm very pleased. We get on well and I'm making good progress. - And in SE1 I did qualify for the local discount. The locations are on her site

I tried calling 1st class today, they said chris is not available at the moment. Does any of you have Chris's number that I could call and ask him directly?

Hi Jack,

Unfortunately I only ever had his work mobile number and I don't have it anymore. He always had lots of clients when he was teaching me (2008) and had people on a waiting list as well so it may be that he isn't taking anymore for a while until others move on?

Really sorry not to be more useful!!

Good luck finding an instructor.
