Thank You For Your Reviews

I recently passed my short notice driving test first time with James as my instructor, after only three lessons with him! I honestly can’t recommend GP driving school and James enough. He isso knowledgeable, reassuring and professional, and we always had a good chat over the course of our lessons. I can’t thank him enough for the knowledge, safety and confidence that he equipped me with. If in any doubt about who to choose for your lessons, go with GP! Undoubtedly the best in the area and I will be recommending GP driving school to everyone I know."
