Feedback from past pupils


My daughter has just passed her test with Andy. She thoroughly enjoyed her lessons every week, and the progress from the first few weeks was remarkable. He knew exactly how to get the best out of her and was calm and humorous in the process. We would highly recommend Andy to anyone wanting to learn to drive.

I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help and good work with Liz and Grace's driving lessons. It was fantastic for them both to pass first time, they are both very happy to be on the road, If I hear of anyone wanting driving lessons I will certainly pass on your details.

Rob Ellis 6th March 2013



Passed my test today!! I can genuinely say that Andy Houston is certainly one of THE BEST! He is incredibly kind, patient, chilled and reasuring. His common sense explanations just made learning so much simpler than my previous instructor, who had completely knocked my confidence. I would highly recommend Andy to any learner, at any stage of their life, or those wanting to update their driving skills. Thankyou again Andy-you've been absolutely brilliant :)

"Hi Andy, it's been a year today since I passed my test, just wanted to say thankyou again!!

Hayley Lee.  Feb 15th 2012


"Having had a bad experience on the roads a few years ago I had stopped taking driving lessons.
However, just over a year ago a friend recommended that Andy Houston was an instructor who was calm and considerate, and could really help me get back on track. I would just like to say how helpful Andy was, and having passed my test first time in November of 2011 I am so glad that I was encouraged to take lessons with him. I have gone from being an extremely nervous learner to being a qualified and confident driver.

I highly recommend that if you are at all nervous about taking lessons that you consider Andy Houston."
