Recently passed with Paul Mealor

“I really enjoyed having my driving lessons with Paul Mealor.”

“I really enjoyed having my driving lessons with Paul Mealor, he was strict at first but when you got to know him he was an awesome teacher showing me how to bay park and learn different techniques how to drive as in training and for when I passed my test. I would highly recommend Paul he is very sarcastic but has the friendliest banter to get on with any age of person.”

Kyle Newsome

“I can’t recommend Paul enough!”

“I can’t recommend Paul enough! I first started driving with Paul after having no previous driving experience. Paul was always there to reassure me whenever I doubted myself. If I was unsure, he encouraged me. If I had a question- no matter how obscure, Paul would always find the answer. He helped to boost my knowledge and confidence in driving immensely and I couldn’t have done it without him! Even when I thought I was having a bad day, Paul always remained positive. Paul was always very flexible and accommodating when trying to book my lessons and would always try to fit me in even when I couldn’t give much notice. I truly appreciate all the help he has given me and the laughs and jokes come for free! Thanks again Paul!!”

Leanne Hazlehurst

“Paul is really great instructor!”

“Paul is really great instructor! I had no skill driving cars and I did not feel like I can manage it. With Paul’s professional approach and his kind heart I enjoyed learning how to drive from first moment to last one. It was one awesome experience! Thank You Paul.”

Jan Ziga

“Outstanding patience, constant encouragement”

“I would not be holding my Pass certificate (first time!) in my hand if it wasn’t for Paul…..outstanding patience, constant encouragement, consistently positive and always smiling. I cannot recommend Paul highly enough, he is without doubt an outstanding instructor. Great fun, great result.”

Alexandra Long

“5 stars given to him by me & my partner.”

“I did my driving lessons with the help of Paul! 5 stars given to him by me & my partner. He built my confidence after having a bad experience with previous instructor. I passed 1st time! Thank you soooo much!!”

Charlie Jade Hall

“It has been a pleasure learning to drive with Paul”

“It has been a pleasure learning to drive with Paul and I would highly recommend him. I got in Pauls car a nervous wreck, who was petrified of being behind the wheel. Paul has been very supportive, taught me in a way that suits my needs, boosted my confidence, was always positive and made me feel at ease in his car, not forgetting the laughs we had along the way. Paul always went the extra mile, he didn’t only prepare me for my test but also life after the test, throwing in a bay park here and there and taking me on different roads not on “test route” to boost my confidence and knowledge of the roads. Thanks Paul and I will hopefully see you on the road soon in my new wheels 🙂 ”

April wilsonPaul Mealor is a fantastic instructor.

“I couldn’t have enjoyed learning to drive if it wasn’t for Paul, he was very supportive and boosted my confidence a lot, he never failed to make me laugh in my lessons. He is a lovely mentor and I would highly recommend him, he never lets you down no matter what. With Paul no time was ever too early or late he was always going the extra mile. I couldn’t have passed without Paul and am going to miss my driving lessons very much. I already have recommended him to more of my friends, he was a delight to drive with and I couldn’t have passed without my mentor Paul. ”

Danielle KNowlesI found Paul to be a very patient easy to understand instructor who catered the lessons to my specific needs.

“He made the whole experience enjoyable and his good humour made it easy to spend a week in his company.  By the time I took my test, I felt fully prepared and confident for whatever situation came up.  If your considering taking driving lessons, I would highly recommend Paul.”

Paul Mealor is one-of-his-kind!

“I passed my test today with Paul Mealor. He was a very good, patient and one-of-his-kind driver. He taught me in a very simple and understandable way and he boosted my confidence. I passed the test with less nerve because of his lovely method of tutoring. Thank  Paul.”

Saheed Lawal

I could not recommend him enough,friendly,helpful and very patient!

mark wood“I started my driving lessons having never driven a car before in December and passed first time in March. My instructor Paul Mealor was the main reason for this he made me feel very settled on my first lesson as I was pretty nervous. He made sure I was happy with the speed I was learning and if any issues arose we would work on them before we moved on.”

Mark Wood

I had a great experience learning to drive with Latics, I could not have done it without Paul Mealor.

Caitlin Grayson“Paul really helped me to go from never having driven before to a completely confident driver. I still can’t believe I have passed my driving test although now it makes me a little sad knowing I don’t get to see Paul every week, but I have already recommended him to my friends, one of which is having lessons with him. I would highly recommend Paul Mealor as a driving instructor to anyone as my experience with him and Latics was absolutely fantastic. Paul was patient and constantly wanted to put a smile on my face whilst driving, he was always early for my lessons and always a delight to drive with, he always made sure to explain everything thoroughly so I understood and even always asked me if I had any questions (which I never did). I have no faults whatsoever about Paul, he has gone above and beyond all of my expectations, he is marvellous and I couldn’t have done it without him.”

Caitlin Grayson

Paul was brilliant from lesson one.

Stephen Kinsey“I started my lessons with him in October and I was really nervous and had little self belief, 3 months later I passed my test first time with 2 faults. Paul was always patient and filled me with more and more confidence as each week went by. He was available Monday to Sunday, no time was ever too early or too late, and he was always on time and never put lessons off. All in all, I can’t thank Paul enough for the work he put in to help me through my test and I would recommend him to anybody.”

Stephen Kinsey

I really enjoyed my lessons with Paul Mealor, he was friendly and patient.

Jade Fanning“He always explained things in a really easy way to understand and was always happy to help! he is really dedicated to his jobs and his students and went out of his way to help me out. I would recommend Paul as an instructor and have told my younger siblings to have him for their lessons. He always made me feel at ease in the car and focused on the positives and was never  negative which i really liked.  Thanks Paul for getting me through my test :)”

Jade Fanning

I couldn’t have passed without Paul Mealor!

Stephanie Mead“I have recently passed my test and I can honestly say that it wouldn’t have been possible without my instructor Paul Mealor. His patience and perseverance with me was outstanding and I went away everyday feeling great about the lesson. I did the pass in a week course and although, it’s tough, Paul made it fun and never stopped believing that I would pass. To pass with only 3 minors on my first time was all because of his teaching. He gave me the confidence I really needed and he became a friend along the way. Thank you so much Paul.”

Stephanie Mead
