I found learning to drive with Simon very enjoyable. I wanted to pass quickly so I tried to have 4 or 5 lessons a week and sometimes it got on top of me, but Simon showed a lot of patience and guided me through step by step, so I'd eventually get there in the end. He knew the right times to have a laugh and the right times to be serious which made him such a good instructor. I'd advise anyone who is wanting to learn to drive to go with Pontefract Driving Academy.

Simon is an amazing driving instructor. He always helps you to find the right answer & to understand. He has a really good sense of humour which makes the lessons more interesting & enjoyable. I passed first time with only 3 minors. Thank you Simon.

Simon is a really good driving instructor that acknowledges any weaknesses that a young driver may have and improves them quickly. Simon was more like a friend than a teacher and has helped me achieve more than I first imagined. He is a cheerful and happy person. I would strongly recommend Simon as he is laid back but very skilled in what he does and I am pleased that I made the decision of having him as an instructor. A really big thank you for everything.

When I was learning to drive, I wasn't the most confident, however Simon changed that and reassured me throughout all my lessons. He's extremely patient and makes you feel comfortable during each driving lesson. I passed first time with Simon, couldn't have asked for a better driving instructor!

Simon was my second driving instructor. I had a bad experience with my previous instructor and ended up feeling that maybe driving wasn't for me then I rang Simon and, after a few lessons, he dispelled that idea and I built in confidence as a driver. He never puts you under pressure. He keeps you calm, makes you laugh and is an all round great bloke. I passed first time with Simon and so did my friend! If you're looking for a first class instructor then look no further!

Professionally, Simon is diligent, persistent and in my opinion most importantly trusting, giving you the opportunity to learn
practically and safely.
Personally, Simon is one the most kind and understanding indivduals I have ever had the pleasure to meet. I passed both tests the first time and if you put as much work and effort in as Simon, you will too
