I started learning to drive with Ben in the summer and passed just in time for Christmas. I was pleased how patient and attentive he was whenever I made a mistake. Always on time and when he wasn't (due to traffic) always contacted me. I cannot recommend Toads School of Driving highly enough. Fair price, friendly instructors, good cars and great results!
I didn't learn to drive until I was 35. I was quite nervous but Ben was really great at structuring the lessons so that I never felt overwhelmed, and in fact I actually looked forward to them. He was really encouraging and focussed on making me a good driver rather than a training me to pass a test - that said I did pass first time! And that is all down to the great teaching.
My driving lessons with Ben were great. He was informative and patient and my driving improved with each lesson. I passed both my theory and practical tests first time. Thanks so much!
I picked up learning to drive again with Ben @ Toads after a 3 year gap. He instantly made me feel comfortable and relaxed behind the wheel again. His explanations on techniques and manoeuvres were well thought out and clear making them simple to perform. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Toads and more specifically Ben himself. An absolute pleasure to learn from (and pass first time)!
Ben from Toads School of Driving was brilliant and essential in helping me to pass my test first time. He was very clear and thorough during our lessons and this meant I was confident in my own ability to pass first time
I would like to a massive thank you to my driving instructor Ben for helping me through passing my theory and practical first time. Very professional and is always giving advice and help all the way through out. Extremely flexible if any issues occurred and understanding. I would highly recommend this driving school to anyone who wants to become the best driver in a short amount of time.
My daughter has just passed her driving test 1st time! Thankyou to Ben who was her instructor,he was very patient,kind,caring,well mannered and reliable! As a parent I felt my daughter was safe at all times with such a professional instructor.I would highly reccomend Toads School of driving. Thankyou x
I am ectasxtic to have passed my trailer test first time I couldn’t have asked for a better instructor to guide me through the process and keep me so calm throughout the whole thing! Training is done in the best environment and couldn’t as for more I truly would recommend toads school of driving to anyone Sue has the widest variety of knowledge and is so calming Thank you so much I will miss the lessons
Sue is an absolutely lovely instructor & really helped me build my confidence as well as ability to drive a car safely. She got me through my test first time with 0 faults!! Can’t ask for anymore than that. Always been extremely patient and a great laugh. Will really miss our lessons !!
Just passed my B+E test first time! Very happy with everything sue has done for me! I 100% recommend her to anybody! She’s amazing!
Toad's offered everything I could have hoped for in a driving school. I wanted an instructor who would be great company as well as an understanding teacher. Ben was just that. Always very patient and professional, yet a fun person to spend time with. He was always very accommodating of my varied schedule, enabling me to pass in the relatively short time frame I had available. Thank you so much for preparing me for my driving test (and future road trips and commutes), for offering constant support, knowledge and laughs throughout the process. Could not recommend Ben enough! Louise x
I decided to do my trailer test with Toad's School of Driving and I am really pleased I did. The communication prior to lessons was excellent, the standard of teaching was fantastic and thorough, the car and trailer were in excellent condition and easy to drive and I passed first time. A bonus is that Sue is a great person to spend hours in a car with, and I think this makes all the difference. She was fun but professional at all times, and she really gave me confidence that I could do it! Thank you, and I will be referring family and friends with confidence when they need to learn a driving skill of any kind.
Very positive experience with Benjamin. Despite his busy schedule, he always made the effort to fit my daughter's lessons in. She passed her test on her first attempt, yesterday, with an almost faultless performance!
Ben has been a brilliant driving instructor. Patient, helpful and always able to provide clear explanations and answers to all of my questions. Thanks for helping me to not only pass my test, but be able to drive safely and confidently!
After recently attempting my trailer test with another company i was recommended to use sue at Toad school of driving. Upon completing the training and passing my test first time with No faults i would highly recommended her to others. Her approach to teaching me was excellent providing clearly the details needed to pass my trailer test. Focusing on my driving technique and safety towards other road users. I could not of asked for any more from her and will be certainly recommending her to anyone i know wanting to either learn to drive or complete a trailer test.
I just want to say a massive thank you to Benjamin for helping, supporting and being very patient instructor. Five star driving school, highly recommend! Sian :)
Sue has been a fantastic instructor through the whole process in achieving my trailer towing license. I learnt so much and she gave me the confidence I needed to pass first time with only 4 minors. The test centre was great with friendly examiners. I hope to keep in contact with Sue as she is such a lovely person and has offered further support / advice if needed. I'm over the moon and can't wait to take my horse and trailer to the beach. Huge thanks Sue x
5 star teaching! Sue has an outstanding knowledge of driving and this comes across in the way she delivers fantastic lessons to all, from begginers to advanced drivers I cannot recommend her enough!! Simply brilliant
5 star!! Passed first time having never towed a trailer before! Would recommend to new comers and experienced trailer drivers! Sue had an outstanding knowledge of all aspects of driving and towing and is the perfect person to help you pass your test!
Passed my BE test first time in Leighton Buzzard this morning with minimal training ! Very informative ! Lovely days training with Sue talking about all my bad habits and how to drive safely and pass this test ! Clean, new up to date vehicle to train in ! Easy to drive ! Helpful tips to stay safe ! Would highly recommend !
Sue provided instruction for my B+E test which I took in November 2017. She provided excellent tuition, especially given that I had been driving for 20 years before taking this part E test and had lot of bad habits! I passed first time which is a huge testament to due teaching skills.
I’ve just passed my trailer driving test on the first attempt with Sue at Toad Driving School and can’t thank her enough for all of the useful advise she has given in both trailer driving and every day road usage. Would definitely recomend!
I can't recommend Sue and Ben enough. I was lucky enough to be taught by both of them and always felt completely comfortable and safe in our lessons. I wasn't particularly confident in driving when I first started but with Sue and Ben teaching me not only what to do but also why, I am more confident in my abilities as a driver. I passed my test in as quick a time as possible without compromising safety. I'd like to thank them both.
Thank you very much for helping me pass my B+E this morning, I have learnt so much about planning for the road ahead and I feel a much safer and confident driver and couldent thank Sue enough. Highly recommended
I have to say a massive thank you to Ben for being incredibly supportive and patient. I would recommend Ben and the company to anyone who is looking to learn to drive.
