I enjoyed learning to drive and he helped to build up my confidence.

I would like to thank Scott for being a great driving instructor who helped me to pass my driving test first time! He is friendly, knowledgeable and talks through any questions you may have. I enjoyed learning to drive and he helped to build up my confidence. I would highly recommend Scott for driving lessons in Nottingham.

Matthew Renwick

The lessons are worth every penny.

I thoroughly enjoyed learning to drive with Scott. From my very first lesson to the day of my test I felt at ease in the car and his instruction throughout was impeccable.

Scott holds himself and his students to extremely high standards and it shows in the rest of these reviews. If you don’t grasp something the first time then Scott will explain it in a different way and be patient with you.

His top quality teaching showed when I took my test as I passed first time with no faults, then the next day another student did the same. Which is a testament to the standards Scott holds himself and his students to.

I would whole heartedly recommend Scott to anyone learning to drive, whether you’ve never had a lesson or if you have some experience. The lessons are worth every penny.

Elliott Blanchard

He’s such a great instructor and would recommend him to anybody!

I’ve recently passed my test with Scott, he’s such a patient, calm driving instructor and really took his time in teaching me, I felt safe and calm with him. I cried a couple of times through frustration but his secret tissue compartment was always full! He’s such a great instructor and would recommend him to anybody! I’ve now had my car for 4 days and can’t get enough of it! Thanks again Scott!!

Sophie Smith

I passed my driving test almost three years ago and still recommend Scott as a driving instructor.

He is supportive and friendly which is so important to have under nerve-wracking situations and every situation we encountered, he was relaxed and clear with his instructions. The lessons were enjoyable and very informative with feedback. He always gave out praise whether it was a goal that had been achieved, an obstacle that had been overcome or a skill that had just been introduced. A great instructor!

Caroline Short

I was a very nervous learner, but he made all my lessons extremely relaxed and enjoyable.

Scott’s a very patient teacher, who doesn’t mind going at your own learning pace and never tries to rush through a subject. I was a very nervous learner, but he made all my lessons extremely relaxed and enjoyable. I’d highly recommend Scott for anyone looking to learn to drive. I passed first time with no minors.

Rebecca Stott

I was a nervous driver and was able to pass first time.

Definitely recommend Scott, very clear instructions and great all round instructor, I was a nervous driver and was able to pass first time.

Daniel Griffiths

I always looked forward to my lessons with Scott as you could always have a laugh with him while learning!

Scott is an excellent driving instructor with a can do attitude and strives to get the best out of you. Scott’s professional approach always made me feel calm and calculated on my lessons which helped me pass my theory and test with flying colours! I always looked forward to my lessons with Scott as you could always have a laugh with him while learning!
I cannot recommend Scott enough!

Lee Jackson

A great instructor which helped me pass first time!

I have and continue to recommended many of my friends and family to take driving lessons with Scott’s Driving School. Scott always made me feel calm and safe while driving with clear and precise instructions and directions. The lessons moved at a great pace with lessons also targeted at driving theory which is vital. A great instructor which helped me pass first time!

Abbie Marshall

A must for anyone looking for excellent quality driving lessons in Nottingham!

Scott took it upon himself to be as professional and as friendly as he could be. He was a calm, confident, assuring voice in the car, while having seamless and up do date knowledge on all matters to do with the theory side. He helped me pass my test first time, and I’d now class him as a friend after my time with him. A must for anyone looking for excellent quality driving lessons in Nottingham!

Matthew Fell

His success rate speaks for itself, myself and 2 other of my family members have passed first time also.

If you are looking for driving lessons in Nottingham,whether that be to either start learning to drive,or are looking to continue learning with a different instructor, Scott is one of the best around. His success rate speaks for itself, myself and 2 other of my family members have passed first time also. He’s always encouraging, never pressures the learner. He wont make you do something that makes you feel uncomfortable. He also doesn’t mind having a chat whilst you drive which made things for me alot easier as it was a much calmer atmosphere. All in all, top driving instructor!

Kieran Bingham

As they say, if you can teach your family, you can teach anyone. Highly recommend!

This is a very biased review, as Scott is my husband! However, he taught me to drive after we got married, and we are still together! As they say, if you can teach your family, you can teach anyone. Highly recommend!

Miranda Clayton

would highly recommend to anyone looking at starting lessons

Scott’s a excellent instructor, the lessons are conducted in a professional manner with a personal touch, would highly recommend to anyone looking at starting lessons

Sean James

Just passed my test first time, and all thanks to Scott’s lessons.

Just passed my test first time, and all thanks to Scott’s lessons. Invaluable experience, great teaching techniques, endless patience and an all round nice guy makes Scott a cracking instructor!

Finn McCartney

I would also recommend everyone to do at least one motorway lesson with Scott after you pass as this helped me a great deal with my fear of motorways!

I hadn’t driven since my first 10 lessons with a different instructor back when I was 17 (now 21) and was rather nervous to get back on the road. After my fist lesson with Scott I was confident that I was in good hands with an experienced instructor. Scott’s teaching style is assertive and reassuring and he really teaches you how to drive safely, not just to pass your test which I feel sets him apart from others. Scott quickly identified the areas of my driving that needed improvement or where I wasn’t confident (hills!) and worked at it with me until it became second nature. Because of Scott’s great teaching (in a relatively short period of time) I was able to pass my test first time with barely any minors and now feel very confident driving independently. I would also recommend everyone to do at least one motorway lesson with Scott after you pass as this helped me a great deal with my fear of motorways! All in all, Scott is a great driving instructor and you’d be daft not to learn with him. 5 Stars. Thanks Scott!

I now feel a lot more confident and his wise words still echo in the back of my mind whilst driving independently.

Scott was able to ease me back into driving after taking a long break from it. He was incredibly thorough and thanks to him, I was able to pass my test first time! I now feel a lot more confident and his wise words still echo in the back of my mind whilst driving independently.

George Gadd

If anyone is looking for driving lessons in Nottingham, there is only one place to go. Highly recommended.

Scott was recommended by a friend (who passed first time). Best decision I ever made. Professional, yet patient and friendly with very effective teaching methods. If anyone is looking for driving lessons in Nottingham, there is only one place to go. Highly recommended.

Vicki Broom

Scott’s driving lessons were one of the most enjoyable things I have ever done.

Scott’s lessons were the key to me passing my test first time. I honestly believe that with a different instructor this would not have happened. Scott made driving lessons in Nottingham something that I loved and looked forward to every week. Scott himself is one of the most friendly and knowledgeable instructors of the driving world, he made sense of every situation and made sure I understood everything I did well or wrong.
Scott’s driving lessons were one of the most enjoyable things I have ever done.

Daniel Putman

Cheers bud

Quality instructor scott is any one wanting lessons get in touch with him. Cheers bud

Kyle Banbury

Scott was always really approachable and made learning to drive a fun and positive experience.

After a recommendation from a friend I decided to learn to drive with Scott. Scott was beyond patient and always showed complete professionalism. Scott was always really approachable and made learning to drive a fun and positive experience. I highly recommend Scott for taking driving lessons in Nottingham.

Louise Morley

Scott was great, patient and a fantastic teacher.

I was the most annoying and nervous person when I first started driving. Scott was great, patient and a fantastic teacher. 3 years on I havent even had a scratch on my car and passed with only 1 minor! I cannot stress how good a driving instructor Scott is.

Aiden Bent

I would definitely recommend Scott as a driving instructor. First class!

Scott is a brilliant driving instructor. I passed my test first time after learning to drive with him. He was very patient with me and was more than willing to go over and over the maneuvers that I struggled with. I also did my pass plus course with him after passing my test, which gave me the confidence to be the driver that I am now. I would definitely recommend Scott as a driving instructor. First class!

Sam Bingham

Highly recommended. Great guy and fantastic instructor. Thank you so much!

Scott is fantastic driving instructor! I had quite a few lessons and I was not confident in driving but with Scott’s knowledge and patience, I have passed my test first time round! I can’t thank him enough. He was always understanding and makes everything clear and generally makes you feel comfortable. Highly recommended. Great guy and fantastic instructor. Thank you so much!

Louisa Shaw

He puts you at ease. Highly recommended.

If any of my friends are looking for driving lessons in Nottingham I always recommend Scott. He’s patient, a good teacher and you can also have a laugh with him which I think is important when half of the time you feel nervous during driving lessons. He puts you at ease. Highly recommended.

Danielle Sorsby

Can’t thank him enough, the examiner even commented on how impressed she was with Scotts tuition!

Had a superb experience with Scott. Came back to driving around 10 years after starting after being messed around by a different instructor, I was put off for a while and never got round to taking my test.

With Scotts tuition I passed first time with only a couple of minors. Great experience throughout. Faultless. Can’t thank him enough, the examiner even commented on how impressed she was with Scotts tuition!

Karim Naaman

I would highly recommend Scott to anyone looking for driving lessons in Nottingham.

I’m not the easiest person to teach, but his ability to pass on his high level of knowledge is first class (and I had a couple of lessons with somebody else before, it amazed me how much clearer it was with Scott). Not only will you be able to pass the test but you’ll become the best, and safest driver you can be. It’s important to learn with someone who: puts you at ease, understands the way that you learn, and that you can simply get on with. For that I cannot recommend Scott enough. Top guy!

Jonathan Gosling

Scott is an excellent instructor who I would recommend to anyone looking for driving lessons.

Scott is an excellent instructor who I would recommend to anyone looking for driving lessons. He is patient, friendly, and equips you with the skills to not only pass your test but to be a good driver in general. I found driving to be an initially stressful experience, but with Scott’s persistance and encouragement my confidence grew and I ultimately passed first time – a result I feel sure I would not have achieved with a different instructor. A big advantage of Scott’s teaching style is his planning and preparation; when the test day arrived I was already familiarised with what to expect at the test centre and during the exam itself, so I wasn’t as apprehensive as I thought I would be. Thank you!

Georgina Hawkins

His lessons are all well planned and structured and my driving really began to reap the benefits from this.

After being messed about by my previous driving instructor, I turned to Scott for driving lessons in Nottingham. He put me at ease straight away! His calm approach meant that I never felt silly for making a mistake or not getting something right straight away. His lessons are all well planned and structured and my driving really began to reap the benefits from this. Because of Scott, I was able to pass my driving test first time with only one minor. Thanks Scott!

Ben Egan

Scott was a great instructor

Scott was a great instructor who not only helped me to prepare to pass my driving test.
But also helped provide me with the knowledge to improve best practices of driving safely and economically, as well as taking car of your car.

David Roach

He gave me all the help that i needed to take me from being a slightly nervous driver to a confident one.

Scott was a great driving instructor who was fun, friendly and approachable. He made the lessons fun and related them to you as a person so that you could understand the different elements of teaching. He was always flexible with lessons assuring i continually managed to get one per week even if the times and days had to change every week because of my uni timetable which really helped me. He gave me all the help that i needed to take me from being a slightly nervous driver to a confident one. Thank you for all your help!

Jemma Walsh

Scott is an excellent instructor – punctual, professional and extremely patient. I still remember everything he taught me to this day! I’d highly recommend him to anyone.

Lucy Elizebeth

I would definitely recommend him to others.

Having failed my test three years ago and not driven since, i contacted Scott three weeks prior to a test date i had booked. I was apprehensive and nervous about driving again, but Scott helped me through all of that, was very flexible and accommodating when it came to lessons and in that short time period he got me back up to test standard and i passed the test ! I would definitely recommend him to others.

Taras Postolan

Scott’s driving school is top notch!

Scott’s driving school is top notch! I was looking for a driving instructor that would bring a personal service and not be part of a larger group, that is exactly what I found.
Scott is patient and understands that it can be nerve wracking getting behind the wheel for the first time and will take the lessons at your pace.
He is very experienced and will help tutor you from this.
It’s always a bonus to learn from somebody who you can have a chat with and feel as though you are on a level with them.
The personal service on offer sets Scott apart from the others and I would recommend him highly.
Oh! And by the way I passed 1st time and with 0 faults, so if that doesn’t convince you as to how good he is, then nothing will!

Stephen Timmins

I passed first time!

Brilliant driving instructor and all round good guy! I passed first time!

Harry Fussey

He is a great easy going guy whilst also being faultless with his skills, knowledge and professionalism.

I passed with Scott first time and have since recommended him to everyone I’ve spoken to who was looking to take driving lessons or book for somebody else. He is a great easy going guy whilst also being faultless with his skills, knowledge and professionalism. After learning with Scott I would now call him a friend rather than my driving instructor. Would highly recommend.

Tommy Kemp

I’d recommend him to anyone who’s both eager and apprehensive at the same time.

Scott has seen me go from fearing the accelerator pedal to passing my test on the first try.
He teaches in a way that suits you. He’s a great listener and observer, so he was able to figure out the best approach to suit me personally. As a result I saw my ability to drive improve at such a rate that I was 100% ready to take on the test as it drew near.
The lessons were sometimes an emotional experience but Scott had the patience to see me through the worst of times. I’d recommend him to anyone who’s both eager and apprehensive at the same time.
And now that I’ve passed, I’m nothing but excited to get back on the road.

Jordan Booth

Will recommend to everyone.. Great instructor! Thanks Scott.

After having three instructors finding Scott was fantastic..Very patient and relaxed me immediately.. Will recommend to everyone.. Great instructor! Thanks Scott.

Kerry Faulconbridge

I would really recomend scott to anyone who needs help with driving.

I would really recomend scott to anyone who needs help with driving. His instructions are clear and if I didn’t understand something he’d explain it again no problems. Really enjoyed my regular lessons, often chatted about game of thrones and I passed with only 1 minor fault!

Sam Fell

I feel that Scott hasn’t just taught me to pass my test but has taught me how to drive safely and best practice when driving.

Having initially been quite nervous towards the idea of driving, Scott immediately put me at ease from my first lesson which calmed me down immensely throughout the lessons I had with him which allowed me to pass first time which I don’t think I could have done without Scott teaching me. I feel that Scott hasn’t just taught me to pass my test but has taught me how to drive safely and best practice when driving. I would recommend Scott as a driving instructor to anyone.

Kieran Loftus

Couldn’t recommend him higher to new drivers!

Scott helped me develop from a timid novice to some who passed first time with only 5 minors. His knowledge is second to non and his teaching style really helped me as I went through the process of learning to drive. Couldn’t recommend him higher to new drivers!

Ed Casswell

Scott is an amazing driving instructor, very patient and also fun to learn with.

Scott is an amazing driving instructor, very patient and also fun to learn with. He made learning to drive a great experience and i passed first time.

The atmosphere in the car is always relaxed and calm, if i could learn to drive all over again i would most definitely choose Scott !

Steph Webster

I really enjoyed learning to drive with Scott and I passed first time!

Scott was a great driving instructor. It was always easy to understand the rules and procedures of driving through diagrams. I really enjoyed learning to drive with Scott and I passed first time!

Silvia De Abreu

I would recommend him to anyone looking for a friendly, very reasonably priced instructor.

I passed my test first time with one minor due to Scott’s efficient and well-structured lessons. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a friendly, very reasonably priced instructor.

Jordan Weaver

Knowledgeable, reliable, supportive and all round top guy.

Scotts a great driving instructor – Highly recommended, very patient with my nervy nature – got me through till the end while I was at University with ease. Knowledgeable, reliable, supportive and all round top guy. Can’t rate him highly enough!

Sam Minton

I highly recommend Scott for first time drivers and refresher lessons.

I passed my driving test with Scott 10 years ago (2005) while at University. But due to living and working in Nottingham City Centre I never had to drive for 10 year until starting a new job.

I decided to have refresher lessons and remembered Scott was a great driving instructor. The refresher lessons which included motorway driving certainly boosted my confidence.

I highly recommend Scott for first time drivers and refresher lessons.

Sheridan Chilvers

His calm demeanor and his personality suited me perfectly and cannot thank him enough.

I cannot thank Scott enough for helping pass my driving test. With a relaxed and comfortable setting, it has been perfect environment for me to achieve this goal. With quite a stern and rigid personality, Scott perfectly adapted and catered the lessons to my personality, to ensure that I got the correct information and teaching in my own. He’s fair, he listens, and is able to communicate effectively that you feel as a learner driver, you are valued and are receiving the utmost level of teaching. His calm demeanor and his personality suited me perfectly and cannot thank him enough. You would be hardpressed to find someone as good. Hopefully, no more wing mirrors will be smashed though along the way�

Sue Smeed

An absolute gem of a instructor that never gave up on me throughout !

Scott’s Driving School review : An absolute gem of a instructor that never gave up on me throughout ! Scott was very supportive , understanding and helpful in all aspects of my driving often teaching me things that would be helpful for real world driving not just to pass my test (Highly recommend a motorway lesson).Despite being a clumsy and uncoordinated through his help i was able to pass my test second time with no issues ! I would highly recommend Scott’s Driving School to anyone looking to learn how to drive !

Oliver Gee

I passed first time through Scott.

Scott is a great instructor and sorted me out, due to wasting my money with another rip off instructor before i found him. It’s hard to find someone who wants you to pass, rather than just use your time to top up the money. An all round sound and friendly guy who will do his up most to pass you first time. I passed first time through Scott.

Matt Alfstar

I would recommend a motorway lesson as well once passing your test- they’re fun and informative.

Scott was really helpful in teaching me to drive. Instructions were given clearly and calmly, to allow for you to understand them easily. There is no rush if something doesn’t go well and he takes the time to talk to you about anything you might be confused about. I would recommend a motorway lesson as well once passing your test- they’re fun and informative.

Motorway driving lessons Arnold

Scott was incredibly thorough and was considerate of the best way for me to learn.

After having failed my first test with a different instructor it took me a while to get back into my lessons. Scott was incredibly thorough and was considerate of the best way for me to learn. He gave me great confidence behind the wheel and passed with 1 minor. Top man as well

From the first lesson he calmed all nerves and remained engaging and encouraging throughout all of my lessons.

I honestly couldn’t recommend Scott highly enough!

Jak Newton

He is extremely patient and helps to improve your confidence for the test.

Scott is an amazing driving instructor that calmly talks you through the situations, this means you are constantly improving as you learn. He is extremely patient and helps to improve your confidence for the test. The lessons aren’t a stressful experience but help you to enjoy driving as every different experience is explained fully. Scott is an amazing instructor who I would highly recommend to anyone learning to drive! He helped me to pass my driving test with no minors! 🙂 Thanks again Scott!

Alex Todd

Such a great instructor!

Such a great instructor! A few months back I was terrified to get into a car and even simple tasks has me worried. Scott managed to calm me down and allow me to develop my knowledge of certain situations and develop as a driver! As a result of Scott’s hard work I passed my driving test with him today and couldn’t be more happier that I chose to learn with him!

Matthew Hall

thank you Scott, you really are a fantastic driving instructor!!

When I started my driving lessons in Nottingham, it was with a different driving school, which taught me nothing. I left and found Scott’s driving school and he taught me everything I know today and gave me the confidence to be able to drive on my own, he got me through my test first time and I have now been driving for 5 years, and I love it! thank you Scott, you really are a fantastic driving instructor!!

Jo Rowe

Scott is by far the best. In my opinion he is the reason I was ready and passed my test, he is very patient.

I have had three different diving instructors, Scott is by far the best. In my opinion he is the reason I was ready and passed my test, he is very patient.
