"I have fully enjoyed learning to drive with Pete as my instructor. I was a complete newbie to driving and Pete consistently showed patience, confidence and guidance each lesson I progressed. I have thoroughly loved the experience of learning to drive and I put it down to Pete’s calm and supportive manner. Each lesson entailed new driving opportunities and Pete gave me the confidence to learn from my little mistakes and embrace each moment as an opportunity to improve. This past year has been fantastic and I can’t thank Pete enough for teaching me to drive. I am over the moon to have passed my driving test and I will never forget Pete’s advice."
“I passed my test first time thanks to Pete’s patient, supportive and overall fantastic lessons. Built my confidence quickly and easily, a brilliant experience that helped me stop being nervous and enjoy driving! Thanks again."
"Thank you Pete, for all the help and assistance you have given me, you boosted my confidence and were a huge support. You were really kind and patient even with my special needs you treated me like anyone else learning to drive. I would be very happy to recommend anyone to you."
"I am ecstatic to say that I have officially joined Pete's first time passers club! After completing 30 odd hours in a manual car and really struggling I had given up hope of learning to drive until I was recommended to try automatic lessons and from that I found Pete. From the moment I sat in the car Pete made me feel totally at ease, he has a great personality and a good sense of humour. I have not once been made to feel stupid or silly for making mistakes Pete just talked me through everything and for all these reasons I cannot recommend him highly enough if you are looking for automatic lessons. Pete has even been on hand afterwards for help and advice about buying my new car and places to go to get sundries for my new car!"
"After several attempts to learn to drive with not much progress I decided to try in an Automatic to see if the stress I was experiencing was less, I found Drive Neale via Google and rang and spoke to Pete about my experiences with previous tutors, which weren’t great! I had a trial with Pete and he immediately put me at ease and I finally felt that I would one day be able to drive. It took a while to get passed the nerves but Pete was very patient and encouraging, I wanted to pass for Pete as much as for myself on the day. I would recommend Pete to anyone as a driving instructor if he could get me to pass first time he can get anyone there. Can’t thank him enough."
"I was a very nervous driver to start with but by the end I was competent and confident. Very friendly and such a good teacher! Thank you!"
"Happy to say I am member of Drive Neale’s First Time Pass Club. Pete is an excellent teacher and judged each lesson perfectly for me. He put me at my ease very quickly from my first lesson, made each lesson fun but gave me a kick-up the bum when I needed it and this got me back on track. I can highly recommend Drive Neale as the perfect choice when choosing a driving instructor."
"I have just passed with Pete, professional and reliable instructor, the lessons are all about you and helping you drive with confidence, a big thank you for helping me pass."
"Having Pete teach me how to drive over these past few months has been an absolute pleasure. Despite having a shaky start and getting used to my adapted vehicle's hand controls I can proudly say I have passed my driving test. Pete was able to clearly see any and all problems I had and found suitable ways to fix them effectively. If I had to recommend a driving instructor I would "Peter Neale". Thank you once again for this life skill."
"I couldn’t recommend Pete enough – 10/10!! I found myself looking forward to my lessons as he made me feel so confident and relaxed even when I was at my most nervous. Thank you for having so much patience and for getting me through my test first time J I really couldn’t have done it without you. Kind regards."
"Pete is an excellent driving instructor. I am a nervous driver and he has helped me to be calm and concentrate. He is very patient and has supported me well. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Pete and thanks to his brilliant tuition I have now passed my test!"
"I had been learning to drive in a manual car for the past 2 years and was a really anxious driver due to lack of confidence in myself. I finally decided to switch to automatic lessons and chose Pete because of his fantastic reviews on Facebook Gossip Girls! As soon as i met him i felt at ease and so much more comfortable. Including my test day, i only had 10 hours with Pete, which i think is amazing. I would recommend him to anyone and thank him so much. I honestly could never see myself passing and i did it first time in an automatic. Its surreal! Thank you again Pete!"
"Thanks to Pete, I finally got to pass my test! Changing to learning in an automatic car and choosing Pete as my driving instructor was the best decision. Pete is so very patient, kind and calming, I was completely at ease with both the car and Pete. After struggling with a manual car my confidence soared and that was down to Pete. He is extremely professional and reliable.Thank you so much, the fact I can now drive will change mine and my family's life."
"Pete has been an exceptional instructor on my learning journey! He has always made me feel comfortable, eased my confidence and believed in me. Pete is very patient and understanding! I would definitely recommend Pete as a driving instructor, especially to those who lack confidence, are nervous and females who may usually feel uneasy with male drivers. I passed first time with zero minors! Thank you Pete... will miss you!"
"Being Autistic my family and myself were unsure as to whether I would be able to learn to drive but we knew Pete was aware of Autism so approached him and asked his opinion. Pete then said that there was no reason why he would not be able to teach me so we gave it a go. Being an automatic car meant I had less things to think about so found that it was actually much easier to get to grips with the basics than I had initially thought and Pete’s mannerism and teaching methods were very easy to get to grips with and I felt very relaxed . In my opinion if Pete can get me to pass first time he can help anyone. I would highly recommend Pete to anyone nervous about learning to drive and anybody with any form of special needs !!!! Thanks"
"Having had a bad experience with an instructor whilst learning in a manual, I was nervous about learning to drive and rather dubious of driving instructors. After over a year of no lessons, I decided to have a change and try out learning to drive with an automatic instead. Pete was really understanding towards the situation and with his fantastic teaching, my confidence grew no end and allowed me to pass my test, as well as showing me what a great instructor is like! I really cannot thank him enough for all he has done for me and I can thoroughly recommend him to anyone. Kind Regards"
"After many years of having lessons on and off in manual cars and having to stop for one reason or another, I was far from confident and had built up many barriers towards it. I decided to try driving a automatic car and was surprised at how much subconsciously I'd been stressing about the gears. Pete instantly put me at ease with his friendly manner and laid back demeanor and wicked sense of humour. Pete helped me to overcome those barriers and build up my rock bottom confidence. He taught me in a dyslexic friendly manner which was a big benefit for me. I'm so chuffed that I've finally gained my licence but above all I believe I'm a safe driver unlike many others on the road. Thanks Pete for having nerves of steel and the patience of a saint."
"I hadn't been behind the wheel for two years when I found Peter Neale driving school and naively thought, with a few lessons, I'll be ready. I had driven for 15 years in the US and had developed bad habits and had little confidence in a new country. Peter assessed what I needed to work on and helped rebuild that confidence. My nerves got the best of me the first time but I passed second time and have my independence back. I can't thank Peter enough for being so patient and friendly, never intimidating. I would recommend Peter to anyone as you will know that you will be a safe and confident driver in the end."
"I had always been a very anxious driver, finding the whole process nerve-wracking and stressful. But Pete was always very relaxed and laid-back, remaining calm even if I made silly mistakes on the road. He was understanding and patient throughout the whole journey and his cheerful attitude helped turn driving into a natural and easy task. Now I can get behind the wheel without even thinking twice about it. Thank you Pete!"
"After trying and not feeling at ease with 2 other instructor's I gave Peter Neale a try and the difference was immediately noticeable I felt at ease with the simple clear tuition, great car easy and comfortable to drive, Peter always showed up on time (often early) and ready to go. I couldn't recommended more as I passed my first test with Peter having failed before also any armed forces I had no problem claiming back the money for lessons with receipt provided by Peter"
"10/10 Excellent service! Great lessons but also really lovely person! Would really recommend :)"
"Many thanks to Pete for teaching me how to be chill and calm while driving. I was SO nervous in car and ALWAYS did silly mistakes, but he was professional and clam, always took time to explain clearly and encouraged me to do better!! I couldn’t believe I passed the test, thank you Pete!!!!"
There aren’t enough positive words to describe what an amazing instructor Pete is; supportive, kind, encouraging and patient -I passed my driving test after years of struggling with driving. I would not hesitate to recommend Pete!
