I’d like to say a big thank you to Paul. Not only have I passed in less than 20 hours, but I feel like I understand driving better and I’m much more aware and know how to handle things now. I used to have a lot of meltdowns when driving which Paul managed to cope with but with his help I’m now holding it together much more.  Being asked to think things through myself has helped a lot.  I also found the manoeuvres a lot easier with Paul’s methods which are a lot simpler than what I’d been taught before and work in my own car as well as his. The service was great. Paul never missed a lesson, was very flexible, and great value for money. The lessons which are supposed to be one hour usually ran over and were often closer to two hours with no extra charge.

I highly recommend Paul as a driving instructor. Paul was always calm, patient and clear when instructing. His knowledge of the industry and high level of skill was apparent from the start. Working with Paul you very much feel as if you are part of a team and share the objective together.  You do not feel rushed, yet he develops your confidence, skill level, and is fantastic at communicating his professional opinions, encouragement and support. Although learning to drive can push you out of your comfort zone I very much looked forward to my lessons with Paul and enjoyed the experience.

I was a little nervous of driving at first, but Paul reassured me. After just 10 lessons Paul advised me to book my test and I passed first time. I'd recommend Miles Ahead Driving School to everyone.

Paul is a great instructor, I had had problems finding someone who didn't pressure me or panic me. Work demands meant he had to be very flexible also which he always was - Paul is calm, collected, and a wonderful teacher!

Miles Ahead went beyond just teaching me how to pass your driving test - they taught me the tricks to stay safe on the roads. I would happily recommend this top school to anyone.

Learning to drive with Miles Ahead was great. I was not a natural driver and my coordination was pretty poor. I had had several other instructors, all of whom seemed panic-stricken and just shouted at me all the time. But Paul was totally fearless, and his calm approach really put me at ease. He supported me all the way, but chipped away at my driving bit by bit. The instruction was clear and easy to follow and Paul soon got me up to a decent standard. I passed my test, first time, in about 30 hours! Don’t know how, but his methods certainly seemed to work.

I passed my test first time and with only two minor faults. And this was all thanks to Paul. This guy knows his stuff and works you really hard, but still manages to make lessons fun. Driving didn’t come easy to me and I had tried a few times before. But Paul’s approach was different from anything I had experienced - rather than telling me what to do all the time, Paul just got me thinking strategically so that I could see what was needed for myself.

I learnt with Miles Ahead and passed first time, and if it worked for me, it’ll work for anyone!

Learning with Miles Ahead was a truly amazing experience. Paul was brilliant! The lessons were relaxed and enjoyable, and every time I came away having learned loads and looking forward to the next lesson. Paul set high standards and made me totally aware of what was needed, but at the same time helped and encouraged me all the way.

Miles Ahead has really changed my life - I got a new job as a result of passing my test. Thanks Paul for the life-changing experience.

I’d like to say a big than you to Paul for all he did for my son Chris who is dyslexic and doesn’t tend to learn new skills very easily. But thanks to Paul’s patience, encouragement and diligent tuition, he made excellent progress and gained a lot of confidence through learning to drive. We all came to regard Paul as a good friend over the time he spent with us and we now miss the twice-weekly visits.

As a more mature lady, I was rather nervous about learning to drive. But I needn’t have worried, because Paul built up my confidence bit by bit, starting on quiet roads and gradually building up to more demanding routes. The lessons were challenging but I never felt out of my depth. Within a few weeks, Paul had me driving all over Cardiff. His clear directions, useful tips, and intimate knowledge of the area really helped me to get around with ease.

Paul is a very knowledgeable instructor. He is firm but fair and gives clear instructions on how to improve. I would happily recommend him to others.

I passed my driving test the very first time after completing the course with the company and would recommend it to all.

For someone who had little to no experience behind the wheel Paul was a great instructor and the intensive course with him worked really well. Was always calm and collected which helped me out a lot, would definitely recommend him.

Miles ahead were brilliant. Paul’s insider knowledge and the many useful tips he passed on really helped me through the difficult bits. And, although support was at hand, I always felt in control of my own learning, which I think made it a lot easier. Thanks – I couldn’t have done it without you

Paul was great. He was patient and friendly. I had 3 different instructors during my time learning to drive and Paul was definitely the best. Unlike other instructors Paul would limit the number of pupils he was teaching at any one time making it easy to book lessons around my work and other commitments.
