"I thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with Dave, he is a fantastic instructor with a good sense of humour and the patience of a saint, I couldn't of had a better instructor Not only a first time pass but with 0 FAULTS!, Thanks Dave".


Best Regards



And yes he really did wear that suit for his test, (Dave)

"You will not find a better instructor    From the A cards, to help you revise the procedures, to the Pupil progress record card which lets you know how your  doing, which I know many other schools don't have. Dave has an organised and proffesional teaching style and is extremley knowledgeable. I can't thank you enough for all the help and support, definatley had a laugh on our lessons. Thanks so much".

I Passed First Time!

"I could not have passed without the help and guidance of Dave, he is very patient, professional and understanding but also has a great sense of humour which makes the lessons enjoyable. Dave was never late for a lesson and never cut a lesson short and I felt he gave me his full attention throughout each and every lesson. Dave also helps you learn out side of the car using a system of written A cards. I cannot recommend DPA School of Motoring enough."


Thanks So Much



The Biggest thank you to Dave, he is an amazing Instructor, not only does he make his lessons fun but the patience and effort he puts into each lesson goes above and beyond" I Passed First Time with only 1 minor fault, I can't recommend DPA School of Motoring enough".

First Class Instructor
"Dave is a fabulous instructor and I could not thank him enough for helping me pass. He is extremely patient and very friendly. I totally recommend taking driving lessons with him as he makes them fun and panic free !!"

"Dave has nothing but patience and was always offering reassurance and guidance when I was nervous and worried. His easy methods settled me a lot and the A & T cards he gave me, acted as my own personal instruction manual helping me on each critical step I took. DPA has been a fantastic driving school for me and without the patience and perseverance from Dave, I highly doubt that I would have Passed First Time!!!"


Thanks Mate

Thanks to my DPA Instructor I passed 1st time and with only 1 MINOR FAULT!

Dave was so patient with me on every lesson".


Thanks again.

Many thanks Dave!



"Dave is a great teacher, always felt safe with him in the passenger seat. He helped me to kick my bad habits, gain confidence and Pass First Time". "Very friendley and easy to get along with, I would recommend Dave to Everyone!"



"Dave is friendly, approachable and very tolerant. I always had a feeling of proggression in his lessons, and the way he monitors your skill improvements on a progress tracker encourages you and helps you strive to do better. If you want a learner driver experience which will be fun, productive and encouraging (even for beginners who like me, was terrified to go into 3rd gear) book with DPA you won't regret it!"




"Thanks to Dave's extreme patience, great sense of humour and outstanding teaching methods I was able to Pass First Time. From the A Cards I was given to learn in between lessons and the way Dave goes about teaching there would be no one else I would recommend"


Thanks again


"Dave is an amazing instructor, he took me from a scared girl who couldn't even turn corners to feeling confident driving on my own, now I've passed my test". "The free handout 'A' Cards he gave me really helped me remember how to do the manoeuvres". "His lessons were always fun and I would absolutley recommend him".




"Couldn't have asked for a better instructor, Dave's methods were easy to follow especially having the A cards to help remember all the important procedures. He was always calm and patient even in the dodgy moments, and also clearly cares about his pupils. So thanks again for helping me pass."



"Thanks for helping me pass!"
"I have thoroughly enjoyed my lessons. The lessons were always well-planned, useful and fun and couldn't have been any better! I found the 'A-cards' and 'T-cards' provided extra help for preparing for the theory test and key areas of the practical test". "I would definitely recommend DPA to any new learner drivers, they are experienced, patient and friendly instructors. I'm really going to miss having my lessons!"

"I can't thank Dave enough for what he has done for me, having the faith and belief in me and getting me to pass my driving test. From my very first lesson I felt very confident and I knew every lesson I would learn something new and improve my driving skills. I wish DPA all the best for the future! I highly recommend them to anyone looking to drive."




Couldn't have done it
without him!
"Dave prepared me for the test not only with the physical skills but also the correct mental approach which for me was the most challenging part. I had a previous instructor that never put me at ease and let me take 4 driving tests I was not ready for which destroyed my confidence. I came close to giving up completely, but with Dave's reassurance and professionalism it was 5th time lucky and I passed with only 3 minors.
