What drivers are saying about us

another happy learner driver


It’s easy for us to tell you how good we are, but we would rather our drivers spoke for us.

So, don’t take our word for it. This is what they have to say about learning to drive at DLM Driving School.

We have more than 50 five star reviews on Facebook and more are on the way.

I cant recommend DLM Driving enough! I passed my test a few years ago, but only recently bought a car and Darren was willing to fit me in round his busy schedule to help boost my confidence. When he saw how nervous I was, he also agreed to help me through the Pass Plus scheme, which has really helped build my confidence again… I couldn’t have done it without you.

Thank you so much Darren, you wouldn’t believe how devastated he was to have his test cancelled so late on. We’re so grateful you moved your schedule to accommodate him at such short notice. Thanks again

So, I’ve been learning to drive on and off since i was 18! I’m now 30…so as you can imagine I’ve been with a fair few instructors but never felt comfortable enough to carry on or some instructors where complete knobs, so I would stop my lessons.
I came across Darren through some people I know in and out of work that had passed with him so thought I would try again, and tbh it was the best decision I had ever made!!

I would highly recommend Darren
and DLM to anybody. He is a great instructor who got me to pass on the first attempt. Not only a great professional but a great person to be in the car with, who provides an excellent detailed analysis on how to improve at the end of each lesson.

Passed my test today first time with Daz, DLM driving. Daz is an amazing instructor with the patience of a saint. With bad experience with previous instructors, he really did build my confidence to get out there and go for it again, His feedback at the end of every lesson is invaluable and allows you to reflect on your performance before your next lesson. He also has very good ways of teaching, to suit you and helps boost your understanding very quickly.

Darren is an amazing driving instructor, I would recommend him highly to anyone who is thinking of learning to drive. He explains things so well and is very relaxed. I’ll miss the jokes we had on lessons but I can’t thank him enough for helping me pass.

My son passed his test first time with Darren this morning and I am so chuffed – I can’t recommend this guy enough he is amazing. My daughter passed first time with Darren last year too and said she was nervous of driving but Darren made her feel so relaxed and confident that she believed in herself and has now been driving her own car around for year. I would highly recommend DLM to everyone

Best driving instructor, he really helped build my confidence when it came to driving with his down to earth nature, I never thought I’d be at pass level but with his help he pushed to get the pass.

Darren is the best driving instructor I know!!

Every lesson was planned for me, even though my car is adapted for my disabilities daz always went above and beyond to teach me!!

Patient is the best word to describe him, always staying calm and relaxed.
His feedback helped me learn and progress and he was always there for me. Anything I needed, he would help.
Thank you for helping me learn to drive and getting my independence – it means the world

Such an amazing instructor!! I switched instructors to Darren after being with one that did not help my confidence and driving, and could instantly tell how good he was. I was such a nervous driver and Darren helped calm my nerves a lot by being so patience with me. Going over the same things that i struggled with until I was completely confident and happy. He takes the time to talk to you about how to improve and sets out a plan to do so, he is really dedicate!! Would definitely recommend and will miss driving with you. Thank you so much
