I started driving with Alan just after the beginning of lockdown as he was one of the few instructors doing critical worker lessons. I was completely brand new to driving and the way Alan teaches was right up my street. His "want to learn to drive, then we drive" approach is very good instead of sitting in the car talking about driving for a full lesson. Alan is a very laid back guy and would always do his best to make sure I got the most out of what I was paying. He treats his students more like his friends instead of a wage which just put me at ease whilst learning from him. I would go as far to say as Alan is one of the few "good" instructors left and despite I am over the moon to have passed my test, I will miss the time in the car. Would highly recommend to anyone whom is wanting to pick lessons up or start driving from scratch.
