I highly recommend both Sonia and Tan driving instructors and A1 driving school for anyone who wants to pass the first time.👍read more

Fantastic Driving School! I changed from a previous instructor which i was making no progress with and i managed to pass with Instructor Zaf within a few weeks. For example going around the roundabouts with a smart and safe strategy and even preparing myself to slow down at a junctions and much more, such things as these were not taught to me by previous instructors. A1 Driving School Instructors put effort in to your lessons and go in to further detail and in depth to help a individual understand the errors and how to rectify those and become the best and safest driver you can be. If your in a similar situation to me or need lessons i strongly suggest coming to A1 Driving School. Trust me you wont regret it. Thank you once again A1 Driving School.read more

I switched to A1 driving school as I needed to pass my test quickly. After 10 double lessons I was ready to take the test and passed for the first time. One of the driving instructor’s Tan who taught me was reliable when it comes to attendance as well as structured when it comes to his teaching methods. I would regiment this school to any one.read more

I Just passed my driving test 1st time (Four Minors). Tan (A1 Driving School) is an amazing driving instructor! I cannot recommend him highly enough. He is so kind, patient and thoughtful. He is an excellent teacher and explain things in an extra ordinary and understandable way. He had such a vast knowledge of the areas I was driving in and a clear goal to help me succeed. I am so grateful to him for helping me to pass and giving me the confidence I needed to succeed. If you’re thinking about learning driving, I’d say just go for it!read more

The best quality driving school in Derby. Would highly recommend. A1 driving school have they beat cars and the best instructors. I passed my test first time in a short space of time. I am extremely satisfied with the service. I come from Birmingham to derby to take lessons as a they are highly established as they have demonstrated first hand to me. A1 has big plans for the future. I will not ruin any of the surprises. Best instructor is zaffran. He got me passed extremely quickly. I am very happy that I have passed but I am disappointed as I will no longer be able to drive the golf r or see Zaff on a regular weekly bases. He wasn’t just my instructor. He was my brother.read more

Passed first time! Definitely recommend A1 Driving school especially Ferzana as she helped me achieve this pass first time she remained patient and also guided me and explained things I was not sure about thoroughly throughout my driving lessons.

I wish to point out that this is a genuine review. I am not here to discredit any individual or business without any justification. This review is based upon personal experience. Happy with the service until the instructor decided to switch driving instructor at short notice. Reluctantly agreed to this, however no reason was given for this. When I asked to book my lesson with the original driving instructor, I was told “Why” by the original driving instructor. This left me confused as I believed this driving lesson with a different driving instructor was a one off. So based upon his reply, he obviously wanted me to continue with this new driving instructor after having eleven lessons with him previously. Asked again, and he replied saying he will agree to teach me. Had to chase him four days until he agreed a time with me. This left me annoyed and confused. Therefore I decided not to continue further.read more

Absolutely brilliant school, couldn’t even start a car at the beginning and they were patient, supportive and enthusiastic and thanks to that I passed in no time. Whether it’s Zaf or his dad, both are fantastic instructors and helped me all the way, and I can guarantee the rest of the school would do the same. If you want a good driving instructor, good lesson experience and a quick pass, these guys are the ones to go to.read more

Came to A1 Driving School with barley any driving experience and my confidence was low from previous driving school. My driving instructor who I had the pleasure learning from Zaf changed that around within months, he was patient with me and always went out his way to make sure I passed as soon as possible with ease, so friendly and made you feel calm while behind the wheel. Highly recommend!read more

I started taking lessons with A1 driving school after coming from another instructor who I failed my test previously with and after 8 or 9 months of having not drove. Zaf was straightforward with me from day 1 and told me to let my driving speak for itself. He took me for my test as soon as I thought I was ready and I managed to pass first time with A1. I'd recommend to anyone looking to take lessons. Very professional service and friendly, laid back lessons.read more

Would highly recommend for anyone. Honestly one of the best in Derby, I came from another instructor because I wasn’t satisfied with my lessons and A1 compared to my previous instructor is 100 times better. I took lessons with Zaf at first but later he became ill so his dad Haji took me on and I ended up passing first time with 2 minors in just a few months.read more

After struggling to pass my driving test with 2 different instructors; I was recommended to Mo. Today I passed my driving test all thanks to him!! He’s an absolutely fantastic instructor who I would recommend very highly. I found all the lessons to be paced perfectly, well organised and crammed full of new learning. At the same time, they were very chilled which really helped to build my confidence on the roads. Mo certainly goes the extra mile and helps you think about driving long after you have passed your test. I have found this to be extremely invaluable! I passed first time with him which is a real testament to his skill and expertise as an instructor. Thanks again :) 🤘read more

A1 Driving school helped me pass my driving test. Special thanks to Haji and Zafran who were my amazing instructors that treated me like family. I thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with them and would definitely advice you to choose them for your driving instructors. I have had experiences with 2 other driving schools: one in Liverpool and another in Derby. The instructors did not care about me: just there to teach me. That's why A1 is so great. They not only teach you well but also care for you sincerely.read more
