Recently passed with James Ellis


James was brilliant!

“Where to start, I was very nervous on my first lesson James was brilliant and easy to talk to, he was step by step all the way along through the lessons and always asked if I was comfortable to move on to the next stage and never dragged the same stage out and would move on when he could see I was ready for the next stage. I would recommend him to any one at all and even more to people who struggle with confidence and after 14 lessons I passed 1st time cheers James!!!”

“James was very encouraging!”

“I never thought I’d learn to drive but I finally took the plunge, 7 weeks later I’d passed first time!

James was patient and let me work out my own faults before explaining how to correct them, very useful because I started with quite a few. I also got useful tips on saving fuel and tyre wear that I’m sure will save me money.

We’d go over areas for improvement at the end of the lesson but also things that went well, so I could see progress even when I didn’t think I was making any.

James was very encouraging, and we had a good laugh on every lesson, a big thank you for teaching this old dog new tricks!”

“James guided me into perfecting everything!”

“I had two driving instructors the first was Angie who was a very nice lady who started me on my journey almost getting me ready for my test before she had to go on maternity leave.

The second was James who I was unsure as it was different to what I was used to but he was great and guided me into perfecting everything I needed to be test ready and as I passed he did a fantastic job.Both James and Angie are a credit to Latics Driving and I believe they both deserve recognition for the way they teach their pupils. I would like to thank them both for making me a road worthy driver.”
