A top review from Lyndon:

"At first I thought it was a pretty scary thought learning to drive, I wasn't a generally confident person and didn't really trust myself behind the wheel because I didn't know what to expect.

But from the first lesson onwards Mike helped me get comfortable and more confident in myself when I was sat in the drivers seat!

I think I really benefitted from Mike's casual approach towards teaching me how to drive, I found it a lot easier to learn things from driving in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.

If you're looking to start your lessons, I'd highly recommend giving Mike a call!"

Remember I'll be keeping my eye out for you on Failsworth's roads! :)
Stay safe mate
