Ryan Marsden

“David is a friendly approachable guy”

“David Priestley was my driving instructor and he deserves an 11/10.

It was clear from the very first lesson that David’s goals were to help me become a confident and safe driver, he is a very friendly and approachable guy which defiantly helped me as I began as a very nervous driver.

Whether you’re struggling to perform a manoeuvre or simply not clear about who has right of way, David is very experienced and will know the best way to explain and practice anything that you are unsure of.

I could not have asked for a better driving instructor.”

Michael Ashworth

“Would love to say a massive thank you to David Priestley”

“Would love to say a massive thank you to Dave Priestley my driving instructor. He is an amazing instructor he is very supportive and really built my confidence when driving. He taught me so much and not only that he is really down to earth and funny. I passed on my third test and David never gave up on me even when I nearly knocked the lollipop lady down on my second test through nerves haha! He had faith in me and was really patient and I really couldn’t have done it without him. When I first started my lessons, I didn’t even know how to start the engine so he probably knew he had a challenge on his hands but he stuck by me and made me feel really relaxed and I would highly recommend him. I’m actually going to miss doing my lessons because I enjoyed them a lot even though I’m bad with directions and always took us the wrong way haha! So thank you David I appreciate everything you have done. Any other instructor would have probably given up on me but not you, you’re a star =)”

“I just wanted to write a few lines to express my up most gratitude to my amazing driving instructor, David Priestley.”

“When I first started my lessons I was the biggest bag of nerves ever, right away he put me at ease and immediately I could feel my confidence grow. He has challenged me, pushed me and encouraged me to my full potential. When he said I was ready to do my test, he was not wrong at all as I passed on my first try with only two driving faults.”
