“Thank you so much for all your help and support; at 34 I had started to think I perhaps would never drive. I have had various instructors previously and I can say without doubt that Adam is the best. He is a fantastic teacher who tailors the lessons to the individual, and intuitively knows what's best for each pupil - in my case realizing that building confidence behind the wheel was as important as the skill of driving. I'm eternally grateful for my new found freedom behind the wheel”

“Well, there's not much to say about that really, I think I'll just give you your result straight away so you can carry on home”

Trevor Tippet, DVSA Examiner, to Mrs Hong Yun He (Grace), passed on 17/6/16 with Zero faults (see DL25)


“I started taking lessons when I was 17, eventually stopping as I ran out of money; I took them up again when I was 24, first with another company who I didn't get on with and then I called up Adam...I passed my test first time with one minor...I would like to thank Adam for being patient, funny, and putting me at ease. Adam is a skilled instructor who made me feel confident whilst giving me the opportunity to get used to driving independently. I would highly recommend him” 

Kate Fenton, 22/10/2014, blue nails, matching certificate 


“Hi Adam,I just wanted to let you know I have done today over 150 miles and that includes driving from North London to South London, and I made it!! I had a good teacher!! Hanna,X”

Ben Alders, Little Houghton, passed 4/3/2014 (1 minor)

“I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for your time and patience in helping me to pass my drivers exam. As a seasoned driver I was not looking for someone to teach me how to drive. Being a Foreign National I was looking for someone who would respect my experience and teach me the nuances and differences of driving in the UK. There were more nuances and difference than I had expected! Adam was the perfect instructor for me. Patient, kind and never condescending. Instead he took the time to explain the thought process of how tests (both driving and written) are approached. He worked with me to break bad habits, and avoid the pitfalls so many encounter when taking the test. He let me be in the driving seat (pun intended) when determining the content of each lesson. What did you feel were your weaknesses? What did you want to concentrate on more? He emphasized my strengths helping me to realize what I did right, so I could better concentrate on what I really needed more work on rather than stressing over all of it. I tell everyone about Adam and Weston Favell driving school. My kids will be next and we won't go anywhere else....”
