A big thank you to Peter at Hillstart! Passed my test first time today! Peter was always reliable and very patient! I would highly recommend him as an instructor to anybody learning to drive! Thanks again Peter!
Massive thank you to Lee Hill and Hill Start for being the best instructor I could have possibly asked for. Lee Hill is an absolutely fantastic instructor. He has the patience of a saint (which he needed to teach me). Through out my time with Lee I made some bad decisions and he stood by made and helped me learn how to drive in an amazing way. Always telling me what I was doing wrong but always making sure I did it right and prefect. I would recommend Hill Start to any first time driver. They are amazing. Thank you so much Lee
Lee is an absolutely outstanding instructor! If you imagine a perfect instructor in your head - Lee is it! It amazes me how on the ball he always is through the lessons - constantly giving feedback on strengths and areas to improve. He really does ensure you feel at ease during the lessons as he's so completely down to earth and friendly. He genuinely has the patience of a saint and I can guarantee he will NEVER raise his voice or snap at you - even if you do nearly nearly wrap the car around or tree or run someone over. Oh and his lessons are extremely pupil-focused as Lee remembers every pupil's strengths/weaknesses/areas to improve. I know this because Lee continuously made me do roundabouts which was a big weakness of mine. He made me practice and practice them until perfection was achieved. Lee also provides a mock test before the actual driving test. This is carried out in complete test conditions and it really gives you an insight as to what the test is like! It really prepared me for the real thing and allowed me to identify what I needed to improve on before my test. I'm really not surprised Lee has 100% first time pass rate because he really does ensure perfection and he WILL turn you into an extremely safe and cautious driver. I never ever thought I would get the hang of it but with Lee's exceptional, amazing tuition and encouragement, I passed first time!! If you're looking for a driving instructor, Lee is the one. There is no doubt about it, he will ensure you pass first time! Thank you so much, Lee!!
I would recommend hillstart to anyone! Lee was a great instructor with loads of patience and was always up for a laugh. He made me feel very comfortable considering how little I knew about cars, he's taught me everything I'd need to know not just how to pass the test. Thanks lee!
I cannot give a higher recommendation than this man and his crew. I ventured into driving with absolutely nil experience and never felt safer learning. I was at times I imagine a challenge to teach and I certainly had to put in the hours after a mock test sheet to be frightened of, match all this up however with an incredibly savvy and knowledgeable fellow and you have a clean sheet on test day. Shall miss the laughs and banter on lessons but I have massive bags of confidence now thanks to Lee.
With Lee I passed my Practical test with no minors, can honestly say I've never felt more comfortable and at ease. He teaches you not only about driving but also every detail of the car so you know what to do and expect for when getting your own car. My sister also passed with Lee, achieving no minors as well. I would highly recommend Hillstart for both new drivers and also people who have had bad experiences with bad instructors before. His colleague Peter took me for my Mock test and made me feel comfortable right from the start. With them both being the highest graded instructors it's easy to see why the success rate is so high. I honestly don't think me or my sister would of both achieved a clean sheet if we went with different instructors. Lee makes sure your driving skills are perfected and you feel comfortable with the car. After my test the examiner took a minute to congratulate myself and Lee for the obvious hard work and effort that we both had put in. Very soon I am doing my pass plus course which will teach me how to drive on the motorway and on difficult roads. So a massive thank you to you Lee I think you are great and a fantastic instructor.
Easy to see why Lee has 100% pass rate. Felt comfortable from the start, with lee teaching me not only how to pass my driving test but how to drive a car safely. could not recomment hill start highhly enough to anybody else, thanks lee
Came to Hillstart after a stressful, difficult time with my first instructor. Peter was brilliant from the start, extremely patient, easy to talk to, and most of all, if you think he's wrong, he won't mind you asking him why he thinks differently. With Peter I passed first time with only three minors. I can't recommend him enough! Also, his colleague Lee was a great help after taking me for my mock test, explaining what I was doing wrong and how to correct them, he seemed a great instructor as well. Overall, if you want an instructor who is almost guaranteed to make you pass first time (look at the pass rate!) go with Hillstart. Two great blokes, brilliant car, and success.
I literally cannot recommend this company highly enough, havning learnt with Lee and taken my mock test with Peter, I learned that they both have the same passion for passing pupils, and they have the best methods of teaching. Having had a previous instructer to compare with, I feel like there is no competition for Lee, he is clearly the best out there. I passed today first time and I've never been so confident with a test before!!
passed my driving test today first time with hill start! lee hill was the main man to introduce me to driving and i have never looked back, he is friendly,reliable, patient and 2000% commited to every student to help them develop and gain confidence, i never felt pressured into doing something i didnt want to do and i was taught at my own pace, with gaining the courage and confidence to solve an issues i felt i had within my driving, and great value for money!! it has been a pleasure and an enjoyment learning to drive with lee and great fun too. i would recommend hillstart to any new driver
5* all the way!
Passed my test today and very happy with my driver training, Lee was my instructor and taught me all areas thoroughly. Made me feel confident with my driving and had a fun time learning! Explained everything properly and didn't rush me through any of it. Definitely would recommend to anyone who wishes to learn!
I passed my test today on the first try with no faults. Peter was reliable, patient and dedicated. I couldn't recommend Hillstart enough!

Lee Hill is a great instructor to be with, he's easy going and finds simple ways to put things in to perspective. Hill Start is well priced, cheaper than most instructors and by far the best on the fylde. The value for money is amazing, and he can boast a 100% pass rate and i'm happy to be one of them. I failed twice before with different instructors, and passed first time with Lee, Highly recommend to anyone no matter of age or previous driving experiance.
Thank you Lee for the 100% commitment and effort you put in to make sure I passed my driving test. I am sure, after failing at two other driving schools, that I couldn't have done it without you.
Thanks to Lee I passed my driving test about two weeks ago with only one minor point.Lee is a friendly and calm driving instructor with a huge knowledge of driving.What can I say more? I think that all people which was learning driving skills with him said everything what can be say about very good instructor and a person. I would definitely reccomend him to anyone.
Lee is a brilliant instructor very paitent!! i passed my test fist time thanks to Lee in the short time of 4months!! I was so nervous on my test day but he kept me calm and after his brilliant teaching skills I passed yay!! thanks so much to Hill Start Driving School would reccommend to any body any age!! :D xx
I passed today!!
Lee was a very patient instructor, as I could be very stuborn. He explained everything very clearly and answered ever question I asked. He was a brilliant judge as to whether I was ready to take my test or not, as I didn't feel to pushed to take the test before I was ready. Thank you for helping me pass.
Passed first time, in exactly 3 months!! Peter is a great teacher and teaches you great driving skills. there was never a time i felt uncomfortable or pressured when driving and when mistakes are made I was kept calm to get over them. i would highly recommend Hillstart as driving instructors:)
Lee is a very good driving instructor he has taught me many techniques that are not only useful which helped me pass my test but also out on the road after I pass. I took my test first time and passed with only one minor. Also the car is very well maintained with no problems and is easy to get the grips of. Lee's teaching is very good quality and I would recommend him to other people thinking of learning to drive.
Thankyou ery much Lee for being such a great teacher.
