It's always nice to help a pupil acheive their goal and pass their test. It's even better when you receive a fantastic message like this from a pupil who had given up on driving because of a previous bad experience!


"Hi Fred it's Emma here. Just wanted to say hi & let you know that I'm loving my driving. Still chanel you everyday "what would fred say to do". I'm working in Radlett so have to run the gauntlet of the park street roundabout twice a day ! George has moved to maidenhead so the m25 & m4 are my new friends. So thanks so much in getting me past my test "☺" "

    Fred taught our eldest son James to drive last year, and he passed first time. James is very shy and feels awkward with new people, but not with Fred! He was made to feel at ease from day 1, thanks largely to their shared love of music!

    Now our younger son Ed is learning with Fred, and after just 5 hours of learning, he's correcting our bad habits and telling us how Fred does it!

    The BEST driving instructor EVER! WE LOVE FRED!

    Fred is the epitome of the traditionally laid back Kiwi, which makes him perfectly set up to take teenagers to and through their test. My son Tom has just passed his test only 14 weeks after getting into Fred's car for the first time. He says that Fred allowed him to make mistakes and learn from them without raising his voice, twitching nervously or approaching hysteria (all of which were in my supervisory portfolio I'm afraid !).

    Fred comes highly recommended, is incredibly effective and a really nice guy as an added bonus. Get your booking in ASAP

    Hi Fred,

    Just wanted to say a massive thank you for getting Adam through his test first time yesterday with zero faults!
    Your encouragement and patience meant he enjoyed and looked forward to every lesson.
    We cannot recommend you to others enough, thank you !

    Fred is the most patient, and friendliest driving instructor I have ever had. After having a total of 3 different instructors, I never thought I'd be able to find someone who would teach me to the level required to pass my test. I cannot recommend him enough, I passed first time and honestly couldn't have done it without him. He notices your weak points, and will get you to practice them until you feel confident.

    The additional support Fred offers is amazing - text reminders about your lesson times, help on passing your theory test and a cancellation service when you come to book your practical test.

    The only downside to passing your practical test is that you'll miss his calming influence! :)

    Fred is amazing! He helped me sail through theory and practical first time! With only 16 hours of lessons aswell! Really helpful and cannot thank him enough for helping me get on the roads as quick as I had hoped ! So friendly and relaxed and reliable! Thank you fred 😝

    Cannot recommend Fred enough, I've just passed today after 3 attempts and couldn't have done it without him! Always notices my weak points and helps me practice on them parts so I feel comfortable. I
    was very nervous before due to bad instructors in the past but since being with Fred my nerves went and I felt as comfortable as anything! Thank you Fred for everything and I'm going to miss our car
    rides and nearly knocking your teeth out over the speed bumps!

My 17 year old daughter has just passed her test first time thanks to Fred. He has been amazingly patient with a young girl who had little confidence when she started. Over the last few months I have seen such a massive change in her, she has become more focused and determined. It's been great and all down to Fred, who has been incredibly supportive and encouraging. I can not thank him enough. One very happy girl and one very proud Mum!

Just passed my theory and I've gone on to book my test. I had a few difficulties with previous instructors but Fred has made me confident behind the wheel and has so much patience with nervous/panicky drivers. Would recommend to anyone, nicest guy you could wish to meet!

Ellis A(Monday, January 18 16 04:20 pm GMT)

Big thank you to my favourite Kiwi who helped me pass today first time!! Absolutely brilliant and I would wholeheartedly recommend Fred to anyone, fantastic! :)

What can I say..... Learning to drive has been one of the scariest most rollercoaster times of my life but I wouldn\'t have wanted to ride that rollercoaster with anyone else. Fred its been a blast, so many laughs, tears and endless squabbling in between but your amazing patience and friendly encouraging approach got me to the finish line. So from me and my son Harry a very big thank you x

Can't think of anything more that you could ask from an instructor. very patient, extremely easy to get along with, and a great teaching style used in lessons. Passed first time thanks to Fred and would recommend to everyone!

5 driving instrutors & loads of tests over 11 years & I just didnt "get it" then my son introduced me to Fred and within months I had passed my test! He is the best instrutor ever & I have been recommeding him to everyone I meet. Fred - fifi is doing me proud getting me to & from work every day. Thank you so much.

Thanks again.

Sabrina G.

"Thankyou so much for all of your time and help with my driving. I couldn't have asked for a better instructor" 

George L(Saturday, November 22 14 07:57 pm GMT)

Best driving instructor you could find, I loved every lesson and was even slightly upset after I passed as I would have no more lessons.
There's no point going elsewhere. Friendly, relaxed and professional.

Rebecca G.

"Thanks for helping Jonah - he was v happy under your tutorage and all thrilled he's passed.  Will be in contact in 16 months when Gorst number 2 will be ready to learn"

"Thanks a lot for the continuous support n motivation. It indeed was a great day with signals, pedestrians, cyclists n other vehicles aligned to make me pass the test. I defintely would recommend Fred n AA. Without your constant support I wouldnt have tackled it in 20 lessons. Just great! ...I am still on road redoing the test though! ...Last but not the least I started driving straight away from this evening;-)"
