Some of our happy students who have
recently passed their test.
I had previous lessons then stopped learning for 5/6 months, then I heard how good my friends driving instructor was which was dale, sure enough he took me on and in no time at all I passed my test first time, the positivity and effort you gave me helped 110%, thank you for everything dale!
BDSTuition well what can I say, I'm very thankful I had the opportunity to learn with You both! They have a very high standard of teaching and anyone who struggles with confidence or nerves I recommend you learn with these guys! I had passed first time and I couldn't of done it without them. Again thank you so much for the experience and I highly recommend anyone thinking of learning to go with these!
Today I passed my test and I must say, both members of BDS Tuition have been fantastic! Dale was my main tutor for driving and he has been incredible, really friendly, really easy to talk to and all round very nice guy! I also had a couple of lessons with Becky and, as with Dale, she was very friendly and even though I had a different tutor as I usually do, she fully understood what stage I was at with my driving and was great in further improving my skills. Both are very nice people and they explain everything extremely well and I would, and definitely will be, recommending them to anyone who asks!
BDS was recommended to me by a friend, and I'm so pleased I went with it! Dale made me feel confident and relaxed at all times, and helped me to pass my Theroy and practical tests first time!! Thanks, I highly recommend BDS to anyone.
I would highly recommend BDS tuition to anyone who wants to learn to drive. I passed first time with no minors ! Thanks to their amazing help!!
I was a very nervous no confidence learner with little belief I could ever pass!!! Dale had total confidence in me, put me at ease and made me belief I could pass (which I did first time). Patient, accommodating, reliable, professional and easy to get along with. Highly recommended to anyone. Can't say thank you enough!! Brilliant.
Both our daughter Charlotte and our son Sam had driving lessons with Dale. He was always friendly and kind to both our kids, and made them both feel relaxed and confident that they could achieve a pass first time, and that they did. Both passed their theory and practical driving tests first time. Our son now has his first car, he's 17 and I know he is driving sensibly and that's thanks to Dale and what he taught our son! A great guy and a great service, highly recommended!!
Dale has been teaching me to drive for a few months as a learner driver. I was very nervous at first but he put me at ease with his patience and understanding.
We would like to thank Dale for taking our son Chris on Pass Plus Course. This course has enabled Chris to become more confident following his driving test and the motorway training is essential which cannot be taught before test. Dale was an excellent tutor, flexible with his times, good prices and we would highly recommend. Thank you again.

I recently had to have driving lessons, after I'd held a licence for 15 plus years. If I had a teenager who wanted driving lessons, this family business is who I would book with! I would feel so reassured that the husband and wife team were teaching my child how to drive safely and responsibly. They are patient, kind, knowledgable, very honest and professional, and really went above and beyond to get me back on the road as quickly as possible! I never write reviews, but being a learner driver again made me realise just how dangerous roads can be for new drivers, therefore booking a quality instructor, like BDS, is so important!
