Testimonials

Testimonials from some of my past pupils

Susan and Brian
A belated THANK YOU for your invaluable help with Alex. She's absolutely thrilled to have passed her test. You must have an amazing track record with your students! We appreciate everything you've done to help her achieve her driving skills and confidence.

Chrissie
Have driven to North Wales with Beth doing all the non-motorway bits, she's driven extremely well and I am very impressed. Shame she didn't have you instructing her from the start.

Katie
Thank you so much for being an amazing instructor and for helping me pass first time. I am really enjoying driving and even getting better at my parallel parking. You'll be pleased to know I have not and will not be following my speedy unsafe friend!

Sarah
Thank you Patrick for all your help, humour, kindness and patience! You're a great instructor.

David Brown
With Patrick's help I passed with only two minors. Through his observant approach, I immediately felt like he was adapting his teaching to suit me rather than following a strict method. He is quick to spot and correct bad habits, but was patient with nerves and confidence issues. I would recommend him to a friend.

David Hughes
If you have arrived here at this site still undecided about which driving instructor to place your trust (not to mention your hard earned money) in then look no further, you are not going to be so lucky twice. Patrick successfully managed to tutor me in the skills necessary in order to sit and pass my driving test at the first attempt earlier this year. Nothing too unusual about that you might think but at the age of 48 I am definitely not your average pupil. Patrick's professionalism and adaptability were the cornerstones of me getting to the point whereby I was in a position not just to take the test but to actually pass it. Take my word for it, if he is capable of that with a grumpy middle aged man then he is capable of it with anyone - get in touch with him today and start to enjoy learning to drive.

Siobhan
What a lovely surprise! Thank you for the card Patrick. You're an excellent teacher; it's been a pleasure being taught by you. Thank you. I will recommend you.

Grace
Thank you so much for your card! And thank you for being a great teacher.

Lana Robertson
Thank you ever so much for your patience, understanding, fabulous sense of humour and our teaching talent. Patricia Cross said "The task of the excellent teacher is to stimulate apparently ordinary" people to unusual effort. The tough problem is not in identifying winners it is in making winners out of ordinary people". It makes me wonder if you gave her driving lessons and she wrote it after.

Alison
Thank you for my card, the patience and understanding you showed while teaching me to drive. Once I have the car (Triumph Spitfire) up and running, I will bring it over to yours for you to drive...

Lisa
Having put off learning to drive for years I was extremely nervous at the thought of taking driving lessons & worried that as a "mature" student I might not pick it up. I finally decided to take the plunge & booked my lessons with Patrick Bishop. From the 1st lesson I knew I'd made the right choice as it was apparent that Patrick is an extremely patient person which immediately put me at ease. Patrick ensured the learning to drive process was an enjoyable one & gave me the much needed confidence I had lacked. I can't thank Patrick enough for enabling me to achieve something I never thought I could & would highly recommend him to anyone looking to learn to drive.

I can thoroughly recommend Patrick as a first class driving instructor. Not only is he meticulous in ensuring that his pupils have all the appropriate theoretical and practical knowledge required to drive well, but he has a calm, warm disposition and is able to engage with young people and ensure that they find their lessons fun as well as informative. My 17 year old son has just finished his course of lessons with Patrick and passed his test. I know that he will miss Patrick's witty insights and the camaraderie that has developed over recent months. My teenager is typical in that he can be moody and difficult. Patrick took all this in his stride, always ensuring that he got the best results from my son, and always striving to keep him positive, focused and enthusiastic. On a practical note, Patrick is efficient and reliable, timetabling all lessons and guaranteeing that my son was collected and returned safely to boarding school on each lesson day, without the need for any intervention on my part.

Dr Christine Fanthome
I would like to thank you for everything you helped me with while teaching me to drive. I know I can be some what of a perfectionist at times and you were very patient with me. I haven't had a chance to thank you for the card I received in the post as I started my new job that afternoon of Friday 1st and to be honest it's been all go every since. So thank you for that! Yours was the first one to arrive at my house. I drove in to central London for the first time this morning to Marylebone, wasn't as bad as i thought it might have been! I will keep you posted on me booking the pass plus with you. It should be in the next few months that I will be thnking bout taking it. PS: Be sure to let me know if any one beats my record of 2 minors! : )

Jennifer
I just wanted to say thank you, thank you thank you! I'm so relieved that it is over and I know you really worked hard to ensure I was prepared. And the other good news of the day, my car (red convertible Mini Cooper) is being delivered Friday!!!
