"I want to thank Barry Spencer from Coast Wide Driving School for helping me pass my test first go! From the very first lesson he made me feel comfortable and put my anxiety at ease. Barry is an amazing teacher with a great sense of humour, he’s very professional, knowledgeable, with the best tips and advice. He helped build my confidence and believed in me when I doubted myself. I was once a nervous passenger walking my son to school but now I can officially say I’m a proud driver thanks to Barry and Coast wide. I highly recommend this driving school."

"Great session with Murray. As someone who still has a lot of nerves around driving, I've found his support and guidance very helpful. 

"Andy Jones is the best instructor I have ever had. He was always on time to my house and was very friendly and easy to talk to. I started in a manual with him being very nervous but he helped me to become a better and safer driver. He focused largely on making sure I was comfortable and also was very knowledgable when it came to the road rules. I would 100% recommend anyone that needs lessons in a manual car to go with Andy."

"Driving for the first time can obviously be a very daunting prospect for many new drivers, myself included. But my driving instructor (Sue Ottaway) was a strong enforcer of the idea of 'calm in the car,' which made my first experiences in a car much easier and less nerve-wracking. The positive reinforcement helped me to gain confidence on the road, and there was a very obvious change (for the better) in my driving before I started lessons and after even my first one. 
Five stars! :)"

"Tyler is great. He is patient with me and helps me relax"

"Peter is such a caring and helpful instructor. I learnt so much from him and he made everything in driving seem easy and I felt super capable but also really safe.
He was so great everyday leading up to the test and also on my test day was reassuring me and relaxing me ready for the exam which I then felt so comfortable going into!
Thanks so much peter!! "" 

"Stephen is a great driving instructor and teaches you how to drive in a professional manner. He understands how long it can take for someone to learn a technique. Would highly recommend."
