"I found my first lesson very useful. Nic of Drive Essentials provided me with all the necessary information for learning to drive but more importantly to me, to be a safe driver. I love the fact that he takes a client centred approach and allowed me to tell him what particular goals I would like to achieve by the end of my lesson but with realistic targets. Nic made sure I was familiarised with the vehicle which l found very useful.
I can honestly say that I can see myself progressing with Nic as he is a genuine, easy-going person and I am looking forward to my next lesson".
