From Tom Cairney (Professional Footballer - Hull City, Blackburn Rovers & Fulham)

Passed 12th August 2009

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 makes you feel at ease, while at the same time pushing you to your potential. Even though I had previous driving lessons, it wasn't unitl I met Simon that I actually started learning. Thank you.

David was very patient with me, as I was very nervous. We did manoeuvres over and over and had practice on everything, so the learning was thorough which helped calm my nerves! Thank you.

From Charlotte Waller (Student)

If you want to learn to drive there is no one better than Simon. He is very patient & calm. He explains things simply as well as being very reassuring. I am so pleased I picked Simon, as I passed first time, like so many of his pupils.

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.

From Daniel Walker

(Mechanical Engineer)

Passed 10th September 2014

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.

Thanks to Simon I passed first time, as he built up my confidence and made me feel at ease.

From Aisling Corbett (Student)

Passed 29th October 2013

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!

From Matt Hagland

(Assistant Manager at Coral)

Passed 11th July 2013

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!

From Sean Hunter (Technical Advisor)

Passed 29th January 2013

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
