PeZzA B 10/01/2020

I came from another driving school to Zaf at A1 Driving school and I could see a massive difference in the quality of his lessons and learned so much more from him in one lesson then 4 with the other driving school, the lessons were amazing and Zaf is a really easy person to get on with and he can have a laugh with you aswell as teaching you everything you need to know to pass your test, the car was so nice to drive and I enjoyed every second of it, I recommend A1 driving school to anyone that wants to be passed fast and wants the highest quality of lessons

Oliver 09/01/2020

Just passed and can’t recommend A1 enough! Mo is a brilliant instructor and really helped me gain confidence on the road. The atmosphere was always positive and constructive and I could see for myself that I was making progress throughout. I had previously been with different driving school and can confidently say that switching to A1 was the best move I did.
