Recently passed with Craig Heselwood

“Craig was a great instructor! He was very down to earth..”

“Craig was a great instructor! He was very down to earth and really boosted my confidence. I passed first time which is down to Craig’s calm and clear instruction and advise. He motivates you to be the best driver you can possibly be and has a laugh with you at the same time. Craig was patient with his instructions and no matter how many times it would take to get things right, he would go through details on how to improve and the best ways to remember certain things over and over until I got it right. I couldn’t recommend Craig enough, he’s great!!”

Ian Speirs

“I would just like to highlight how excellent this man is as an instructor!”

“I would just like to highlight how excellent this man is as an instructor, I have just got back from a very positive lesson with Craig after having difficulties for a few weeks with certain techniques (especially my left reverse). Craig has totally changed my full view on driving today after I got slightly worked up. He encouraged me to try again and with perseverance and patience on Craig’s behalf I completed my tricky left reverse after weeks of struggling… I am so very grateful at his patience that he shows week in week out. I am a very very nervous driver however every lesson I have with Craig is helping to reinstate my confidence that I have lost whilst learning with a previous instructor and also being a witness of Road Traffic Accident. He’s a fabulous instructor with lots and lots of patience and it’s fair to say I’ve tested that a few times but he’s never given up and always encouraged me I couldn’t wish for a better instructor.”

Molly Doyle

“Thank you so much Latics and especially Craig. You’re the best.”

“Craig is honestly the best and believes in you even when you doubt yourself, lifts your spirits and makes you feel comfortable and confident behind the wheel. He is so funny and kind which is huge positive of having him as your instructor and will always inspire you to never give up when you feel you can’t do something or start to struggle. Don’t think I could’ve had a better instructor!! He is like Superman haha. Too everyone, I highly recommend you go with Craig. Thank you Craig! ”

Craig always made me feel calmer.

Cara Green 1st (craig heselwood) (Small)“I am over the moon that I now have a license, I feel so relieved that I can now drive independently. One of the most exciting experiences you will come across.  It was a great experience and I enjoyed having that great sense of humour with Craig. Even when I felt nervous and worried about driving, Craig always made me feel calmer. I couldn’t have passed first time without having such well qualified instructor. I never expected to pass first time. I would recommend him to anyone.”

Cara Green

 I could not have asked for a better instructor than Craig Heselwood.

Lily Prince“Throughout the whole learning to drive experience I could not have asked for a better instructor than Craig Heselwood. From getting into his car having never even sat in a driving seat before, to passing my test 1st time 6 months later, I’m so grateful for how at ease he made me feel, how helpful he was with any (many) questions I had, how flexible he was to my painful shift patterns when trying to book in lessons, and for all his patience. If you’re looking for an instructor to get along with and make driving fun, while learning to the best possible standard, I would highly recommend learning to drive with Craig. Thanks again for everything!”
