When I started driving lessons with Dan I had no confidence whatsoever and truly believed that I wasn't going to get any better,his faith in my ability never wavered and slowly I started to believe it myself. Dan Alford is a great teacher and motivator. I am truly glad I chose Dan.Thank you.

Dan has truly excelled as my driving instructor. His remarkable patience and empathetic teaching style, coupled with his easygoing nature, make him easy to connect with and learn from. Despite his great sense of humour, he maintains a professional learning environment. His commitment to my progress ensured that I passed my driving test on my first attempt. He also equipped me with all the essential knowledge to excel in my theory test. I am genuinely so happy with our choice of Dan as my instructor, and I recommend him for anyone looking to learn to drive. Thank you Dan!

I started learning with Dan 18 months ago and I was a nervous wreck! Dan made me so comfortable and every lesson we had such a laugh, really appreciate how supportive and patient he has been with me as I know I am a customer he has had for a long time. I’ve not only learnt how to drive safely but I’ve also gained so much confidence thanks to him!

Dan is very clear with his instructions making it easier for me to learn. Also his technique is easy to memorise and understand. He is very calm and patient and explains clearly when you have done something wrong. I passed first time and Dan was my only driving instructor. Highly recommended. Thanks Dan for helping me gain the confidence on the road which has helped me to pass my test with only 3 minors!

I found out about Dan Driving School while looking for driving instructors in my area and was reluctant at the beginning, but after the first lesson I knew with his teachings I would get my license for sure. Dan is very polite, kind, and professional when it comes to teaching, he always has his lesson plan prepared for you, but he can change it to address your concerns and worries. He is very respectful, but also knows when to be funny to calm your nerves. If I have to learn once more, I would definitely go for Dan again.

Passed 1st time
Dan has been a fantastic teacher from day 1. He has been continually patient even when I couldn’t get it and when I wanted to give up, he talked me out of it and spent so much time exposing it to me. I had zero faith in myself being a very nervous driver but Dan kept telling me I could do it and was always honest about my progress. Highly recommended to get even a driver like me to test never mind pass first time with only 3 faults. Thanks Dan you are a star!

Connor GreenhalghConnor Greenhalgh
Passed with only 2 minors
Excellent from start to finish. Was completely supportive during my first lesson. Making me feel confident and safe. As our lessons progressed I gained more confidence and responsibility but always felt safe. Dan is a top guy, very easy to talk to and get along with. He has lesson plans before you even get in the car which he adapts as you drive. Cannot recommend enough.

I highly recommend Dan, not just another driving instructor but a mentor who really does care about teaching the fundamental skills required to become a decent driver. As someone who lacked confidence, Dan instilled in me a sense of self belief and encouraged me to trust my skills. Along with passing on his technical knowledge in a patient and supportive manner, Dan is also quite a funny guy. Appreciate all the effort Dan, thanks for helping me pass both theory and practical first time.

Dan is not only a fantastic teacher but he is super cool! He makes you feel relaxed and calm because of his fun loving approach! I highly recommend Dan Alford for your driving needs. I was so lucky to have found him as he believed In me so much! That support lead on to me passing my theory and practical first time. I learnt to drive a bit later in life so I do think the older you get the less confidence you have but Dan knocked that out of me straight away! Thanks for everything Dan! Fran Ludlow x

Kieran Obrien
Refresher course
I would highly recommend Dan a driving instructor. having not driven since passing my test 12 years ago, I was incredibly nervous about taking that first step behind the wheel. Dan couldn't have been more reassuring and supportive and made me feel instantly calmer in the car. He is informative without being overly technical: calm and encouraging and he helped me to get over my fear and find the joy in driving again *****

Dan is a very supportive and patient instructor who wants the best for his students. Throughout my time as his student I have learnt how to drive with no experience, and I have passed first time with only 4 minors. The price of the lessons are very reasonable and you do get value for money. I highly recommend Dan if you want to pass first time!

Stuart C

I have been through several driving instructor companies and not felt at home with any of them. Dan has made me feel confident and secure and I can see I am improving already.
