Thank you Phil!

Phil has been the best driving instructor I could have asked for! I imagined that all driving instructors would be scary-looking individuals who you’d be worried to make any mistakes in front of. But not Phil! He made...

Just the best driving instructor I could have wished for really !!!
Always going the extra mile to make everything easy to understand and to make me feel as comfortable as possible.
From coming to meet myself and my parents before we started lessons which made me a lot less nervous for my first lesson.
To the detailed handouts I got given thoughout the lessons to further my understanding of all the basics, skills and manouvers.
And always there to help with my theory to ensure I was confident beforehand.
All while making lessons great fun with an enjoyable atmosphere, I´ll honestly miss my weekly lessons and can´t thank Phil enough, results speak for themselves theory and practical pass first time !!

I had lessons with another driving instructor around 8 years before. 3 children later I thought how much easier it would be if I learnt how to drive. I started lessons with Phil in September and was so nervous. From the first lesson Phil puts you at ease. He explains everything really well and clearly. If I didn´t get a manoeuvre he would talk me through it while I attempted again or he would drive while explaining.
On nearly every occasion I panicked as the fear set in at 5 ways junction, to the point that I felt ill as I got there. Phil talked me through where to position the car, what to do and when to go. Eventually I got over the panic and fear and 5 ways wasn´t so daunting. After each lesson Phil sends over a briefing with hand outs attached. These are really helpful and useful as the briefing tells you what went well and where you could improve and the hand outs are brill. Phil also tells you about an app to help with your theory. The app is really good as it´s all questions that could come up on your test.
In the run up to your driving test, Phil treats each lesson as a mock test. He takes you on routes that the examiners use and throws in some manoeuvres. This puts you at ease as you know what sort of thing to expect on the day.
I would recommend Phil to family and friends wanting to learn to drive as he is easy going, makes learning fun and spends the time to make sure you are confident and comfortable with each manoeuvre (even if it does take weeks to get to grips with it). He stays relaxed even if you panic.
All in all an excellent 5* driving instructor who will make each lesson fun and makes learning to drive easy.
I can´t say much for his terrible jokes though.

I was very nervous when starting my driving lessons with Phil due to poor mentoring from another driving instructor. Phil has been very patient and has a funny, genuine personality that put me at ease straight away. Phil is an amazing driving instructor and I couldn’t recommend him enough! I cant say the same for the bad jokes...😂😂😂
Thank you so much for all of your help!

Phil was an incredible driving instructor and gave me so much support and mentoring during my time learning with him. He has such an amazing teaching method and gave me a full understanding of how a car works, and how to drive. He sent out lesson briefings each week to tell me what I did well and what I could improve upon. This really helped me to nail each aspect of my driving so that I was confident when it came to test day, and when I go to drive on my own. I was quite nervous to begin with but Phil was always able to calm me. Whenever I made a mistake, he just talked me through why I went wrong and what to do to correct it. It really helped to build my confidence up behind the wheel - i can’t recommend him enough!!

I don´t often get reviews or feedback from parents, but here is a lovely review from Jo, Laurens mum.

From a parents point of view , you helped to alleviate any worries I had of a stranger taking my daughter out on her own. By coming and introducing yourself and explaining your teaching methods, I was confident that we had chosen the right man for the job ! You also kept me informed of her progress and I felt that I could get in touch anytime if I wanted to ask anything. I know you built up and excellent relationship with Lauren and she really looked forward to her lessons. You kept the lessons fun and made her see the funny side even when things went wrong .... I can’t thank you enough for getting her through her test and making her whole driving experience a positive one. You deserve 5 stars for quality value and service !! . I wouldn’t recommend anyone else ! Your jokes aren’t half bad either 😂

Phil is a very patient and reliable driving instructor, after every lesson he sends lesson briefs going over the highs and lows of the lesson and what I need to make improvements on and also a plan for the next lesson which really helped, Phil’s not only a driving instructor but a legend!! He goes above and beyond to help in anyway he can and I would definitely recommend him to anyone, he’s not only taught me to drive but he’s also helped me purchase my first car and reply to all the questions I’ve ever needed the answer to (even if they were simple😂) he’s been a great instructor and also someone to get to know!! thank you so much Phil still can’t thank you enough for everything👍🏻!!

After putting off learning to drive for many years due to being severely deaf (knowing my learning experience would be a bit more challenging than the average person) - my partner(who also passed his test with Phil) had me meet up with Phil to discuss the possibility of me learning to drive with him, what a fantastic decision that turned out to be.
Together we sat down and discussed my hearing equipment and worked out how we were going to make the driving lessons as accessible as possible for me. Phil rather than seeing a problem with my deafness saw a challenge, however he was very respectful, I never once felt like a charity case or project with Phil. Phil also did his upmost best to work with the test centre to make
sure they were aware of my equipment and communication needs and make it so the only
nerves I had on test day were about driving not my disability.
In regards to lessons, every week Phil would send handouts. These contained information on the controls of the car, rules of the road, junctions, roundabouts, manoeuvres and other
practical driving skills. Passing the theory test was a piece of cake; as Phil gives you access to a practice app where he can track your progress and offer support where needed. Phil encourages you to get theory test done and dusted as soon as possible. Practical driving skills are made easier to improve upon, as after every lesson Phil sends a detailed email on
what went well in the lesson and what you need to do to improve. In fact, everything was going swimmingly, until I got pregnant! Ah, Phil bless him, was so patient and humorous through my pregnancy which with the nausea, tiredness and horrendous baby brain that came with it had me muddled and confused. Being a person with low self-esteem and nervous about driving a car anyway, Phil spent a lot of time working with me not just ondriving but on raising my confidence and sense of self-belief, the thing is he genuinely cares
about his learners. I honestly believe th

A massive thank you to Phil who helped me to pass both my theory and driving tests. He is an exceptional instructor who made me feel both comfortable and at ease when in the car. He is a very funny and passionate guy who makes learning to drive more enjoyable. I would definitely recommend Phil to anyone who is thinking of learning to drive. An absolute top guy.

When I first met Phil I was very nervous about learning to drive but on the first lesson, he explained how the car works in a way that was very easy to understand and made me feel relaxed about driving. He supports you at each stage of learning and will never push you to do anything that you don´t feel confident enough doing, but at the same time allowing you to challenge yourself and learn and progress each lesson. Phil also helped me with my theory test and gave me login details to Theory Test Pro which was really useful for preparing for the test. I always thought that I wouldn´t be able to learn to drive and after passing both my theory and practical test first time I couldn´t be more surprised but it was all down to Phil who really supported me and motivated me throughout the whole process.

Learning to drive with Phil has been a fantastic experience. He is very supportive and really tries to boost your confidence whilst driving. He adjusts the lessons around what you want to do and what you need to work on. He also creates an email with an overview after every lesson, to help you focus your attention. He’s an involved and friendly teacher, who always arrives with a smile on his face. When it came to my theory test, Phil suggested we meet for tea and cake to run through the parts of the test I was unsure about, consequently I passed first time. Showing he always goes the extra mile! We always had a good laugh and can’t thank him enough. I’d recommend him to everyone!

I began driving with Phil in February after having a couple months driving with a previous instructor at the end of last year. I immediately found Phil’s teaching technique easy to understand and follow. I felt comfortable and confident in the car and began to enjoy driving a whole lot more!! My mum was friends with Phil previously which is how i found out about his driving school, (later i found a bunch of other people i knew had learnt to drive with him) He made me understand how and why things work in a car which allowed me to actually know what was actually going on when i was driving. He is friendly and is always able to answer any questions i had (however stupid they were!), i would defiantly recommend Phil to other people & will be doing!! I don’t think i would have passed so quick without him!

Learning to drive with Phil has been brilliant! He’s a great teacher and we had a lot of good laughs! He also focuses lessons on what you need to improve to get you ready for your test; and if you haven’t done your theory, get it booked because he’ll keep asking until you do 😄 the handouts and lesson overviews given after each lesson help you to know what you’ve done well and what to improve. All in all I couldn’t have picked a better instructor, thank you so much Phil!!

"If you are looking for a dedicated and enthusiastic instructor then 100% Phil’s the man. Phil is reliable and always on time, your lesson will not be a boring one with Phil’s sense of humour and rubbish jokes:) He will ensure you keep on top of theory prep and won’t give up until you’ve passed it, this continues with your practical. Other instructors can be prone to drag out lessons but will draw you in with cheap prices however not Phil; paying that little bit more is well worth it and each lesson is productive and actually planned out. Phil will also take time to send over handouts and feedback from your lesson which is so helpful to identify what you need to improve on. Thanks Phil for everything! I’ll be back soon to have a motorway lesson :))"

"Learning to drive with Phil couldn’t have been a better choice, he also taught my sister and we would both recommend him without a doubt. Throughout the time I was learning to drive from my first lesson until my last Phil kept me motivated. He didn’t just teach me to drive, he made his lessons fun and entertaining and showed he cares more than just an instructor would. Phil is easy to get on with which makes you feel at ease from the beginning, I enjoyed every single lesson and looked forward to getting back in the car the week after. After every lesson Phil sends a lesson briefing, explaining what I did well and what I needed too look at for my next lesson. Phil can only be one of the best around, I can not recommend him enough!"
added 11th Jul 18

Learning to drive has been such a fun and memorable journey. It feels like yesterday since started my lessons in August, and even though I have never driven a car before I felt totally safe as Phil´s teaching methods are not over complicated which really helped me.

He never once panicked or raised his voice, and was always very positive and supportive while driving which helped my confidence grow faster. The lesson briefings that he sends after each lesson really helped me as he tells you what went well, what you need to practice on before the next lesson, and the plan for the next lesson. This helped me massively as I could go out and practice in my own car on the things I needed to practice. I don´t know any other instructor that does a lesson briefing and I think it shows how much Phil is passionate and dedicated about getting you to pass. The lessons themselves went really fast because time does fly when you´re having fun, and there was the right balance of learning and laughter (even though his jokes where terrible😂).

When I was doing my theory I found that his app really helped as he could monitor my progress and tell me what areas I really needed to focus on. A week before my theory test we had a lesson just on the theory which helped as I could ask all the questions I was struggling on and understand the answer rather than guess it... a week later I passed my theory first time. I really do consider Phil a friend and miss our lessons. After I failed my first test he didn´t let me give up or make me feel bad in anyway, he said I just needed to get back up go again, this positive outlook meant that less than two weeks later I had passed my test. I recommend Phil to everyone, and all really does give you 100% of his focus in the car. I can´t thank Phil enough for everything, he really is the best instructor and don´t think he truly knows how good he is.

"I was driving with Pass With Phill for just under 11 months. I was a very nervous driver at the beginning of our lessons as I had never even sat in the driving seat before, however not long after the first lesson I felt very safe and much more confident in what I was doing. Phil is a natural instructor and filled me with confidence from the very start! He has brilliant teaching methods that are easy to understand and doesn´t ever over complicate things, he takes the time and effort to send me lesson briefings after each lesson which really helped me in developing as a driver. He is also a great motivator as well as a friend. throughout all my time driving with Phil , he has not once panicked me or raised his voice in or out of the car. He´s Phil and even though I have passed I will always keep in contact with him. He is an amazing instructor and I wouldn´t ever recommend anyone else. After having a few set backs, Phil helped me to pass my driving test with only 4 minors! I cannot put into words how much this man has helped me as a driver and has also helped bring my confidence on as a person. I will always recommend him".

Learning to drive with Phil has been a massively enjoyable and rather hilarious experience on the whole. His manner of teaching is laid back, and his commitment to providing a positive experience has been worth every penny. Phil provided excellent value in his service: with emailed feedback after every lesson, handouts which break down manoeuvres into simple steps, and access to a theory practice site free of charge. His methods are incredibly thorough; you will never leave a lesson feeling confused, with Phil always ensuring that you feel confident in your understanding of the content.



Beyond simply learning to drive, Phil is a great laugh, I always found myself looking forward to the next lesson if for nothing but the chat! I will miss my weekly drive with Phil, I feel I’ve gained a great friend in my experience, since a Phil isn’t just for driving instruction, a Phil is for life! Although the drivers licence is a nice bonus too…



Thanks for all your support I’ve had a great time driving with you

My brother suggested Phil to me. Before I had the lessons, I was very nervous about driving but after the first few lessons I felt a lot more comfortable and that was because Phil had a very calm manor and stuck to the basics. Phil will give you lesson briefings each week which shows you which parts you did well and which parts need focus on. This really helped me understand what I need to do to become a better driver. Before any manoeuvre you do he goes over it showing you the best and the safest way to do the manoeuvre by drawing it out and showing you what you need to look out for when doing the manoeuvre. He is very patient and relaxed in the lessons so if you do make a mistake he will show you what went wrong. He gives out lesson handouts every week which make you more familiar and comfortable with manoeuvres and other parts to driving. In some of the handouts it shows you how to approach certain roads in Buxton for example Dukes Drive and other test routes. This helped me because when we came to the road I would know how to approach it and what steps to take to make sure that its done safely. He also helped me out massively with the theory because he creates an account for you on a theory website which allows you to complete mock tests and helps you learn the theory side to driving. Thanks again Phil.

Phil was recommended to me by a friend who claimed that he was friendly, efficient and an all around good instructor. She was not wrong. After my first lesson I felt completely at ease and much more confident than I had expected, my confidence grew more and more with each lesson and I improved quickly. After each lesson Phil would email me a briefing which I would read over before the next lesson and he would always reply to my texts within about an hour. I don’t know anyone else who has such an efficient and reliable instructor, Phil never cancelled a lesson and always tried to stretch out the money in a way that I would benefit from. Towards my practical test date Phil was really supportive and he made me feel calm. Because of Phil, I passed my practical test first time after only four months of driving. Don´t think twice about having Phil as your instructor, he is the best. I’m sure a lot of other people will tell you the same too.

Phil has been a brilliant driving instructor. He gives clear instructions and his calm manner puts you at ease. He’s very reliable- always on time and never cancelled a lesson. I received a post lesson briefing after each lesson which detailed what went well and what I needed to improve which gave some structure to my lessons. He also sent me handouts which I found really useful to keep on top on things between lessons. He knew I needed to pass my test as quickly as possible, and was very flexible when driving test cancellations came up. Thank you Phil!

I was recommended to Phil from friends that had previously learnt with him. From my very first lesson I felt at ease and comfortable to ask any questions. He was fun, helpful and patient, this really helped me enjoy and look forward to lessons. Phil gave great handouts and briefings after lessons to let me know what I did well and what I could improve on. He was always on time and kept me up to date with plans and timings.

I got introduced to Pass with Phil from friends of mine, that had already been taking lessons with him, and I must say that he did not disappoint. Such a comfortable learning environment, not just a ´teacher´ or an ´instructor´ but also a friend. Pass with Phil also helps with so many other things, such as your theory test! Don´t hesitate to ask him for extra help with this or your driving test, as he´s always more than happy to help. I don´t have one bad thing to say about him as an instructor or as a person. I would 100% definitely recommend his service to any friend of mine that´s looking for an instructor for driving lessons. He also provides extra help through the use of apps on his iPad when leading driving basics, and also weekly emails and handouts as an extra bonus. Definitely worth more than the money!

After a rocky start with 3 different instructors a friend recommended pass with Phil and it was the best thing i did. Phil is brilliant, hes kind, patient and helpful. He explains things in a way that you understand.He never gets cross or shouts and he has time, not many driving instructors do. He is always a call or a text away which is fab when you dont understand a theory question with plenty of nice reminders to practise using a brill theory site provided. I always looked forward to my lessons each week learning the theory and general driving and monovers Phil made this fun which helped me settle and become more confident in my driving.

Throughout life I tend to find all the old wives sayings tend to be true. If you buy cheap, you buy twice. Pass With Phil may be a little more expensive than other driving instructors, but the value you receive far out strips the cost. Along with the excellent lessons, you also get Amazing support to go with it. Emailed lesson de-brief, handouts to explain techniques further, free access to practice your theory, and most importantly, he´s always there at the end of the phone for a chat! No other instructor goes above and beyond like him, so save yourself money in the long run by spending a tiny bit more now. A student is only as good as its teacher.



Although I joined his list of many, many first time passes, I´m also a little disappointed. Our weekly drives were such fun, I´d be eagerly waiting for the next. Now thanks to Phil, not only have I gained a full driving licence, independence, but I´ve also gained a great friend.

After learning with Phil for 5 months, I recommend learning with him so much. Without fail, Phil made sure I had a lesson every week (no cancellations) and was never once late or unreliable in the slightest. Driving was made such a fun experience with no worries due to trusting Phil and being able to chill out whilst learning, I never felt I had one disastrous lesson as Phil would always make sure I understood everything thoroughly and that I was comfortable whilst driving! I couldn´t be happier with the 5 months I had whilst learning and I definitely wouldn´t have been as prepared as I was with both my practical and theory if I hadn´t chosen Phil as my driving instructor.

5 Star Phil! Phil has just seen my son Jamie through to gaining his licence. I cannot praise Phil enough and would recommend him to everyone without hesitation! As a parent I received emails every lesson, how things had gone, good and...well not so good. Even though I´ve not been in the car with Phil I know the word bad would not be used as he is so full of encouragement and positivity, his coaching skills with Jamie have been excellent to improve his driving after every lesson. Phil sent Jamie texts to remind him if he hadn´t done any theory practice as Phil could watch when he logged on to revise, all again through encouragement. Phil´s superb coaching and a true sense of what the individual needs of the candidate led to Jamie passing his Theory and Practical tests first time. I even pushed Jamie to take extra lessons the week before his test, Phil could have taken the money, however he said "No you don´t need them!" So honest Phil as well! I cannot praise Phil enough...he is an outstanding example of a driving instructor! So well done Jamie, and very very well done Phil

I chose Phil as my driving instructor because my sister (who passed first time with him) absolutely raved about him as a teacher and as a lovely, kind person. After passing my test with only 2 minor faults I can say that she was completely right! I started off a very nervous driver, but Phil always put me at ease and through his reassurance and confidence in me as a driver, I became confident in myself. Phil made driving lessons fun with his horrendous jokes and was never strict, as I know some instructors can be. He even turned mistakes into positives by helping me to learn from them, rather than worry about them. Phil made learning to drive a really positive and enjoyable experience for me and as a result I am confident in my skills as a safe driver and would say I have gained a friend. I would recommend Pass with Phil to anyone.

He messaged me back almost straight away and was very accommodating of my situation – I hadn’t driven for over two years and was nervous to get back behind the wheel. Phil sent me handouts over email to read before my lesson to refresh what I already knew and these helped massively, along with his unique style of teaching. Phil equips you with easy to learn tools for manoeuvres and driving in general and teaches in a calming and reassuring manner. He has made me feel a confident and safe driver and I know that he would be happy to help if I ever needed it again. I would recommend Pass With Phil to anybody! Thank you Phil"

A friend suggested Pass with Phil to me when I was struggling with another instructor. Driving wasn´t something I enjoyed and I would often return from a lesson unhappy and dreading the next one. With Phil however, the opposite is true; from the start he encouraged me, reassured me, and made me laugh to the point I actually looked forward to lessons.



Phil is very patient and explained any mistakes so that I understood why they happened and then how to correct them. His positive disposition stopped me dwelling on those mistakes so I could carry on and ultimately pass.



Phil sends out handouts summarising each lesson which are useful as they allow you to see where improvements can be made and reflect on them in preparation for the next lesson and the test.



Would 100% recommend him to anyone. Thank you for everything Phil!

This really helped me achieve my potential and achieve goals towards my driving , I don´t just know the physical parts to driving , I understand why I understand exactly why I am doing something. Phil is such an approachable , fun, caring instructor I wouldnt dare go with anyone else. I have had a wonderful experience , had fun along the way , and passed my test with 1 minor. Like I say if you´re after a supportive , educating, flexible friend and instructor , do not hesitate to give Phil a message. Absolutely fabulous , I´ll miss you Phil. 5 stars for sure"

"If you´re thinking of learning how to drive I would highly recommend Pass with Phil to anybody. His friendly, calm and positive attitude made my learning experience extremely enjoyable and pleasant. He offers immense support with both your theory and practical work by emailing you lesson briefings each week, helping you to identify what you´re doing well and what areas need improving. Phil has a great sense of humour, and although his jokes are shocking, he still managed to make me laugh multiple times during my lessons!! He is extremely reliable & organised and if you´re ever unsure about anything he´s always at the end of the phone to help you. Nothing ever seems like it´s too much trouble. I couldn´t recommend him enough, and although I´m extremely happy to have passed I do miss our lessons every week. Thanks again Phil!!!

"What can I say? Really friendly guy and makes you feel relaxed and safe throughout learning. Don´t think there was a moment I actually felt scared about driving with Phil, he always made sure it was safe to drive. Throughout learning to drive we did it safely, sticking to the basics and ensuring we were ready for the worst situations. He´s always really well prepared and up for anything, I highly recommend him as he is such a great teacher and lovely person to drive with, his jokes aren´t the best though! Easily give him 5 star for his teaching and friendliness."

"My driving lessons with Phil, never felt like a chore. His laid back, yet professional attitude made driving very enjoyable! Whenever I was nervous or uncertain about a situation, he always put me at ease. His good sense of humour, which usually left me in hysterics, made driving a delight and I used to look forward to my lessons every week. He is very patient and understanding which made bad situations less stressful and worrying. Even with my theory test, he offered great support and helped me learn from my mistakes which led me to pass on my first attempt.



Although I´m over the moon to be out on the roads, it´s safe to say I miss my lessons with Phil.



Overall, Phil is an excellent teacher who will always make you feel comfortable and confident with your driving which will lead you to the success of passing. I´d recommend him to anyone who is thinking of learning to drive. Thanks Phil :) "

"Phil is a very delightful person to know. My very first time driving was quite an achievement. Phil went through all the basics with me, and while it took a bit of time and patience I managed to get the hang of things. before I knew it the first few months went by and I started to improve and drive with confidence. I received plenty of handouts and advice which were really useful and helped me pass my theory first time aswell as preparing me for my driving test.



Phil never gave up on me and instead helped me increase my confidence for driving as well as improving my driving skills. I don´t think I could have done any better myself without having him to aid me. You cannot go wrong in any way as he tailors each lesson to a level suitable for you!



Finally he´s a very kind and outgoing individual. lessons were really fun and enjoyable and we shared plenty of stories and moments together. Highly recommended! Good luck to Phil & all future drivers."

" I would highly recommend Phil to anyone looking to learn to drive. After learning with a different instructor beforehand, I was told about Phil and booked lessons with him instead, and I´m very glad I did after passing first time thanks to his belief in me. The second I got in the car I was made to feel relaxed and very comfortable and was talked through every step of the way. He starts with the basics and works up, which massively helped to build my confidence. Always up for a laugh too which helps to ease the nerves! He treats everyones individual needs with a great deal of care and he´s always around if you have any questions or worries! Always looked forward to Tuesday morning drives, would definitely recommend! Thanks Phil!!

To anyone who is wanting to learn how to drive I highly recommend Phil. He is extremely friendly, welcoming and supportive. Most of all he is extremely hard working, he puts a great amount of effort into ensuring that you drive to the best of your ability, with handouts and lesson briefings his lessons are well prepared and helpful. From the first lesson you can see how much he loves his job and how much he cares about seeing his learners succeed.

Massive thanks Phil for teaching me how to drive and find my confidence ...!!!

So nice of my son Jake to write me a little review after passing his test on Monday. Thanks Jake :)



"It was very odd when i started to learn to drive with my dad sat next to me as my instructor, but that didnt mean i was treated differently, he was there to do his job and help young people to drive safely and pass their tests. Dad has always been demanding of his learners but offers support and advice on any worries or problems that you may have, he always calmed me down and told me i could do it, he is very motivating and im sure will help to teach many other learners to drive safely :) "

" Choosing Phil to take driving lessons with was so easy, he is a calm, relaxed easy going guy who gets to know you as a person rather than just a number in his driving school.



After having 13 months of learning to drive, Phil eased me back onto the road, refreshing my memory and making all the lessons enjoyable.



He quickly picks up on your strengths and weaknesses, in time those weaknesses become your strengths.

Where do I start? There are countless good things to say about ´Pass with Phil´ without a bad word to its name!

I first found out about Pass with Phil when I applied to take theory lessons during my first couple of weeks at college. It was about a month or two later that me and a friend took up the lessons provided and lo and behold, it was where I met ole Phil!



On our first driving lesson, I was very nervous with my anxiety going through the roof and Phil could see this due to my handling the car horribly down a fairly straight road in first gear! He didn´t tell me to ´shake it off´ or to ´try focus on something else´ but instead provided a sense of security that everything will be fine and nothing will go wrong as long as he was in the car besides me, he asked me to take my time and take deep breathes without rushing into it and it helped!

Phil is extremely good at his job and goes above and beyond his duty to help you succeed in driving. On any lesson he helps to break the nervousness and silence by distracting you and asking how you have been and what´s new in life before kicking straight into a lesson with you raring to go. Phil is extremely patient and doesn´t shout at all no matter how wrong you may go, he identifies your weak points (like a robot! 😉) and helps you learn to perfect them one by one. Phil also provides helpful handouts for you taking your theory test or driving test, these handouts contain very useful information about the road and the car itself (So go over them repeatedly because you´ll never hear the end of it!!!)

I would recommend Phil to absolutely anyone because let´s face it, he´s legend...wait for it...dary. Legendary!



To top all of that off, I would have to say "Thank you Phil for being a fantastic instructor, for boosting my confidence in driving, helping me pass both my Theory and Test and for having faith in me when I didn´t in myself. Y

Pass with Phil Driving School was recommended to me from a number of people. Phil calls round to the house before lessons to introduce himself and the car. The lessons are relaxed, a good laugh and nothing is rushed, allowing progress to be made at individual speeds making the experience more enjoyable.

Phil always emails a lesson briefing after every lesson, letting you know what went well, highlights areas to improve, a plan for your next lesson and home learning tasks via handouts on manoeuvres, road markings, etc.

The Theory Test Pro website was one of the most beneficial things for theory test preparation. It is a great help for highway code questions and hazard perception videos. Phil is able to keep track of your progress and suggest sections to focus on.

Phil is always contactable for any questions. I have loved every minute of learning to drive with Phil and I would recommend him to anyone wanting to learn to drive or improve their confidence behind the wheel. Phil teaches you drive, not just to pass a test.

Thank you very much for helping me to pass both my theory and practical first time, Rachael (The SuperStar) xx

I have known Phil since I was 6yrs old when he lived in France. I used to try and drown him in the



swimming pool; I am so glad I didn’t succeed as he would not have been able to help me pass both



my theory and practical driving tests first time.



Phil’s lessons are always fun and enjoyable, he is very friendly and funny, sometimes the



conversation can be completely random but this helps you to relax and makes the learning process



so much easier.



He is extremely patient and has a good way of correcting mistakes, always full of encouragement



and never critical.



Phil also took time out to help me with my theory prep and has an excellent theory help section on



his website.



After passing my test Phil took me on a motorway lesson as I was nervous about driving on a



motorway for the first time.



I chose Phil not just because he was a family friend but also because he has such an excellent



reputation and having been taught by him I now know why that is.



I would highly recommend Phil to any learner driver.

" I learnt to drive with Phil not long after I moved up to Buxton from Liverpool. I was very nervous as it was a completely different environment to drive in and I didn´t know the roads or area. Phil made my whole experience of learning to drive fun and exciting and I was always looking forward to our next lesson. Phil also sent over a review of each lesson we had together so I could see what I had done well on and what I needed to improve. This massively helped my whole learning to drive experience as I could go home and reflect on what I needed to work on. I enjoyed every second of learning to drive with Phil, he is supportive, friendly and we had such a laugh as well as getting me through my lessons and helping me to pass. I would always recommend Phil to both first time drivers or even drivers with experience. As well as a incredible teacher I have made a good friend. You will never have a dull lesson with Phil! "

I would 100% recommend Phil to anyone, he´s a top driving instructor and can get you through it all.

The best thing about Phil is how he makes you feel so at ease when driving, he puts no pressure onto you whilst driving what so ever and it really helps you with your confidence.

Phil will do anything he can to get you through both of your tests, theory and practical, I can´t put into words how great Phil was on lessons, especially coming up to my tests.

You´ll easily make a good friend with Phil but you´d struggle to find a better or more helpful instructor, best driving instructor around.

Driving with Phil isn´t just a driving lesson every week and that´s your lot, its so much more! He goes above and beyond to help you from step one. His help with theory, handouts and lesson briefings are excellent and extremely helpful, all of which he does in his own time! Never during my driving lessons has he ever made me feel uncomfortable or made me do something I wasn´t capable of doing and the belief he has in his learners is genuinely heartwarming. Some days I may not have felt like driving and sometimes things were difficult and frustrating but having Phil beside me made everything a thousand times better. Not once did he ever shout if I did something wrong, he simply went over what I needed to change and helped me to perfect it! He is always full of conversation, great stories and amazing banter

I was extremely nervous and uninterested in learning to drive and only decided to try out a lesson as i felt that i really needed to learn for my independence. As soon as i got in the car for the first time everything changed. Phil puts you at ease straight away, he is so chilled and easy to get on with. Every lesson is full of laughs (and the occasional tear) but i know i looked forward to each lesson so much each week! The lessons are not easy and definitely push you but you never feel uncomfortable or over stressed.

Phil goes above and beyond to make sure you get the most out of the lessons, he sends you briefings after each session which tell you what went well and what you will be working on next time. He is always there 24/7 if you have any questions and is really approachable so you always feel that you can ask anything and not feel silly.

Phil also helps you with the theory test, he gives you access to a useful website on which he can monitor your results and will make time to help you if you are unsure of certain areas.

If I was having a bad lesson or making mistakes he would never shout at you, he would just talk you through it and always tell you how the mistakes can be made better.

Phil isn´t short of any banter either haha, he does nothing but make you laugh for the duration of your lessons and he helps keep nerves away. He isn´t short of conversation and has many stories to tell.

What can I say, I can´t thank Phil enough for helping me through my driving over the last 4 months. I remember my very first lesson back in April and I knew from the first five minutes in the car I´d made the right decision. He had so much patience with me when other instructors would get frustrated. There were times when I would get annoyed and didn´t want to do it anymore but he helped me believe in myself and coached me through everything constructively rather than making me feel useless. Phil knew when to be serious but also have a laugh at the same time, I never once dreaded my driving lessons, I always looked forward to them. I am genuinely sad that I won´t have driving lessons to look forward too but I´m extremely grateful that I have my independence now. I will miss you getting mad at me for turning the wheel the wrong way during left reverse or looking at the gear stick

I was never interested in driving and could never find an instructor that I felt like I could sit it a car comfortably with; it wasn´t for months after my 17th that I was hearing all these goods things about Phil off other people he´s taught; encouraging me to give him a ring and see for myself. Just by him coming round and meeting me and telling me what he was about before me getting in a car with him made me feel so much more comfortable and I knew immediately he was the right instructor for me. I´d never even turned a car on before my first lesson and I don´t think any one else could have made me feel as comfortable and relax my nerves as much as Phil did. Every time I had a bad lesson and lost my confidence, Phil helped me to build it back up and even when I failed my test the first time, he reassured me that I was a good driver and that I was capable of doing it, which then led to me passing just 2 weeks after. I couldn´t have done it without Phil´s help and I would recommend him to anyone. He´s ace! Thank you so much for all your help and patience, especially helping me turn the wheel in the many occasions where I forgot to.

"I would like to take a moment to thank Phil, not only one of the nicest people you could ever meet but the best driving instructor in the world!



When choosing a driving instructor I was always worried what it would be like. Would they shout at you? Would they be mad if you couldn´t get something right? I have to say I chose the calmest and patient driving instructor and so should you! I spent most lessons laughing and smiling, and couldn´t wait to get driving again the following week. Even on bad days he would never complain or get annoyed, despite me having a breakdown over parallel parking!



Phil was great from start to finish, from the moment I first moved the car 2 metres and screamed with excitement to the nervous wreck taking my test.



I´ve always found it hard to learn by being told things and preferred to take a more ´hands on´ learning method. Phil respects each and every one of his learners learning skills and adapts every single lesson. He had the patience of a saint trying to explain the same manoeuvres over to me again and again. He then continued to have the patience when I didn´t understand the theory test. He took the time and we sat through it and after 1 hour I was able to see where I was going wrong and suddenly the hardest thing In the world seemed so simple!



Lessons with Phil were always jam packed full of information and fun. Whether it´s learning something new or just perfecting and practising that manoeuvre giving you the confidence when passed to get it right every single time.



To summarise, Phil isn´t a guy that just teaches you to pass your test, he teaches you to drive. Believe me there´s a big difference. He will go the extra mile for anyone and will do whatever he can to help you always in a professional but fun manner! I have even had the confidence now to take on a driving job, only a couple of months after passing. I couldn´t recommend Phil more.

"I´m so sorry this is so late, since passing I have been out driving so much, it slipped my mind.

That just shows that Phil taught me how to drive not just to pass my test. Phil is the best driving instructor I could have asked for.

I´m a very stubborn girl, and was very close to giving up at one stage, Phil showed me that I was a good driver and that I shouldn´t let the nerves get the better of me.

He put up with all my moods and moans when I didn´t want to do parallel parks.

He showed me how fun driving is and what a great experience it is.

I don´t think I would have enjoyed driving as much if it wasn´t for such a fantastic teacher.

Never once did he raise his voice to me, even if I messed up completely. Every lesson we had was a laugh and so laid back, it didn´t even feel like one.

I always looked forward to our lessons each week and I´ll be sad not to be having them anymore.

I couldn´t thank you anymore Phil! I am so grateful for having such a brilliant instructor.

Thank you Phil for helping me pass my test.. 1st time! I started my driving experience back in November and unfortunately made the mistake of being too keen and taking the 1st instructor that came along! I had liked Phil’s page and watched all the positive updates while I was suffering with my instructor shouting at me and draining my confidence.

After 56 hours enough was enough and I got in contact with Phil. I arranged to do an intense manoeuvres lesson 2 weeks before I had my test booked. I couldn´t believe the change in respect. He had all the time in the world for me.. Within that 3 hours I could finally reverse around a corner and parallel park!! After big discussions I told Phil I could not carry on my driving with my old instructor. I´d of been setting myself to fail. With a struggle Phil made the space for me to learn with him.. I cancelled my test and carried on driving with Phil for the next 5 weeks. I was a nervous wreck! In my head I couldn´t and wouldn´t do it! Phil reassured me and boosted my confidence. Within my 2nd lesson with him we was laughing and joking and driving didn´t seem so scary. Everything fitted into place.

I no longer had to put up with shouting! Something I wasn´t use to! With a few tears along the way Phil fully prepared me to take my test. He ensured I had all the handouts I needed ready for the big day.. He was always on hand, be it text, phone, Facebook or in person for any worries I had before test day.. He reassured all negatives and turned them into positives. .. NO BODY turns up to his lessons with self disbelief! ! I took Phil along on my driving test as a friendly face. He reassured me that I would nail my driving test.. I came out with 3 minors and a PASS.. Phil helped me join the club of 1st time pass on both driving test and theory :)



So to sum it all up.. Phil is the only driving instructor around that I would recommend. He can accommodate for even the worst of self-confid

Phil always kept cool, calm and collective whenever I made a mistake and when I needed to improve something. He would always tell you politely and re-assure you and help you to improve.

He is always there whether you need a chat or help with theory questions! There are so so many nice things I could say about Phil, but I think it would be hours worth of typing!



I have never once walked away from a lesson feeling disappointed about mistakes I have made as Phil shows you in a patient and friendly manner where you have gone wrong and how to improve it, and makes something negative into something positive.

I just wanted to take this moment to extend a heartfelt thank you to Phil, whom, - whether he realises it or not, - has really helped me in overcoming my fear of driving. Nonetheless, at thirty-five years of age I have been putting this moment off for eighteen years now. Under his expert guidance I passed my test yesterday, and over these last few months I can’t fully put into words the feeling of self-confidence he has instilled in me. That is to say, not only is Phil extremely practical in his tutelage, he is also very intuitive with an easy-going and positively charged manner. There is something of the optimist in him and it is highly contagious, - even for somebody as naturally downbeat as myself!

To summarise though, I have had three other instructors over the years and I can say without hesitation, that Phil is a good head and shoulders above them in every respect. It is sometimes difficult to find a good instructor, as ultimately, it is always a shot in the dark. However, to find a ‘great’ instructor is plain lucky. Phil is a ‘great’ instructor, and I couldn’t rate him more highly if I tried. Thanks again Phil, it has been a real privilege.

"Phil is a wonderful driving instructor who taught me many skills that I needed throughout my time learning driving. I would recommend Phil to absolutely anybody, there are so many nice things I could say about Phil; he is so easy to get along with, and he really makes you feel relaxed and comfortable. Phil never failed to make me laugh each lesson. Phil was brilliant with helping me with my Theory; he gave me constant feedback and encouragement, and really goes the extra mile for you. Phil most of all has really helped me with my confidence. I passed my Theory Test and Practical Test first time round, I really could not have done it without Phil and his support. Phil is such a fantastic Driving instructor; I really loved every driving lesson. Thanks again! X

Mahatma Ghandi and the Dalai Lama are both men well known for their patience, but even these two would have struggled with me as their student. Not Phil though, he has patiently guided me from a stage of abject horror at the thought of driving to a point where not only have I passed my driving test, but also am confident in my ability as a well-rounded and, above all, safe driver.



Not only has Phil been the sole catalyst in the process of my development from non-driver to confident full licence holder, through learning with him I feel I have gained a good friend. He doesn’t just care about you as a driver he cares about all of his students as people, something evident to me in his advice about running leading up to my first half marathon.



Ultimately if you want to learn to drive with a confidence that will serve you well beyond the test process and ultimately discover the joy of driving, then Phil is your man. Thanks again, mate, couldn’t have done it without you.





Cheers again, mate, see you soon.

´Passing my driving test with my Dad as my instructor was really good because I was treated the same as every other student, and it didn´t feel weird to actually be learning with my Dad. When I was in the car, he was my instructor just like with everybody else. I always felt safe and at ease and I learned only the best because he´s such a good instructor. I honestly couldn´t have passed my test if it wasn´t for him! The good thing is that even though I´m his daughter, he wasn´t afraid of telling me when I did something wrong and areas that I needed to work on, just like another student. Definitely the best instructor/Dad ever! Thanks for everything, we did it together and we passed.´

If anyone were to ask me to recommend them a driving instructor then I’d tell them to contact Phil straight away. From the day I had my first lesson, I knew that I was comfortable learning under Phil’s instruction and that I would be taught at a professional level. Phil is extremely friendly and is there whenever you need to ask him about anything. I have thoroughly enjoyed driving with Phil and the excellent instruction I received was shown through my great result in my driving test.

Well where to start ay Phil.

I have had a fun few months driving with you, I am sure you haven´t failed to make me smile every lesson.

You taught me with great patients and understanding whilst making the experience enjoyable.

Your emails after every lesson were helpful towards my theory test and practical test.

I know we struggled with me working everyday, it made it hard because I was always tired after work and then to do a 2hour lesson, some days it showed I was tired.

Well what can I say about Phil Shaw? Other than he is the godfather of all Driving Instructors. You wanna pass your driving test then Phil Shaw is your man that can. He cares about each and every student like they are a member of his family. He not only teaches you how to be a safe confident driver but why you should be doing it in the m.s.p.s.l. order, to enable you to become the perfect driver he has taught you to be. I don´t think I have ever met a man who is so passionate about his job. He is always there to help you. Whether it be to pass your theory test i.e test Pro, or a text at stupid o´clock about a question that has been niggling away at you. He always gets back to you a.s.a.p. If it wasn´t for Phil Shaw I would never have become the safe confident driver that I am today. So I want to say a massive thank you now Phil As not only did you do a good job at teaching me to drive but you also made it so much fun. I will cherish some if not all of my driving memories I have like when we saw a man on a bicycle with a parrot on his shoulder driving down towards Morrisons. Strange but true. lol . my only regret about passing my Driving test is that I won´t get to take driving lessons anymore with Phil.I gonna love ya and leave it here cause otherwise I could drown on forever but you already know there´s no shutting me up ay Phil lol Stay safe and stay true. your number 1 driving student Debra Millward x x x

Phil is not only an exceptional driving instructor, he is also fantastic at inspiring confidence in his pupils.

I started off nervous after struggling to drive a car in the past, through patience and motivation Phil transformed me into a safe and sure-footed driver. His focus on improving hazard perception allows learners to easily understand and predict the dangers on the road. One of the most prominent aspects of his teaching technique is constant communication and feedback, on approach to junctions he will guide you through all the steps necessary to safely carry out the manoeuvre. As the lessons progress he holds back, allowing you to become accustomed to judging a situation by yourself.

Phil is also fantastic company in the car and available at any time via email or by phone.

I will miss the fun of the lessons and wish all his students the very best.

Thanks Phil.

Learning to drive with Phil has been a great experience, I always felt relaxed with him and he’s super easy to talk and calmed my nerves every time that I had a little panic. He was supportive in every way, from giving me useful tips for when I would be out on my own, dropping a text when I’d had a good lesson and even helping me sort out difficult situations I was facing away from driving! Phil went the extra mile that other friend’s instructors certainly didn’t, this included the lesson briefings after lessons and the theory test pro which was a great tool when preparing for my theory test. Phil is always so enthusiastic in the car and when I finally was able to do a left reverse he was just as over the moon as I was; to have someone that it there to encourage you as well has teach you to learn to drive has been incredible, Phil has so much passion for teaching and this really comes across in the car, he doesn’t just want to get you through your test, but give you the skills that will enable you to safely drive and drive well once you are out on the road on your own. The confidence that I have gained in my own ability, both in driving and other aspects have been down to the continued support Phil has given me since I began to drive with him the February. I can’t thank him enough for the vital skills that I have been taught and are helping me every time I go out in the car. Actually going to really miss lessons with Phil, despite the thrill of being able to now drive on my own. Thank you for everything Phil!!

Phil has been the best driving instructor ever. I have always felt that him teaching people to drive is more like his passion than his job, and every time you get something right for the first time such as a manoeuvre, he gets the same buzz as you do! He has always been supportive and encouraging and always taught me to believe in my ability to drive. Not only is he an amazing instructor, he is also someone you know you could talk to about anything because hes always there to listen and try to understand. The extra support outside of the lessons was also so helpful as he gives you a lesson briefing and handouts after every lesson which you can go over and reflect on, and the theory test pro helped me to pass my theory test first time!

Not only did he teach me how to pass my test, he taught me how to drive by understanding the affects of situations and reacting/solving problems, which I needed to use on my test!

I passed my test a year ago, but I had never been on the motorway before. I wanted a change from my last driving instructor and ending up finding Phil who I found to be much better. He helped me feel calm and seemed very professional as he gave me a booklet with information on it and said he gives his pupils one every lesson so they can form into a file which I thought was a great idea (my old instructor didn´t give me anything like that). He also showed up early and we finished slightly late which shows he gives each pupil 100%, I am going to recommend him to my friends and family.

My mum was friends with Phil previously which is how i found out about his driving school, (later i found a bunch of other people i knew had learnt to drive with him) He made me understand how and why things work in a car which allowed me to actually know what was actually going on when i was driving.

Learning to drive with Phil has been brilliant! He’s a great teacher and we had a lot of good laughs! He also focuses lessons on what you need to improve to get you ready for your test; and if you haven’t done your theory, get it booked because he’ll keep asking until you do 😄 the handouts and lesson overviews given after each lesson help you to know what you’ve done well and what to improve.

Other instructors can be prone to drag out lessons but will draw you in with cheap prices however not Phil; paying that little bit more is well worth it and each lesson is productive and actually planned out. Phil will also take time to send over handouts and feedback from your lesson which is so helpful to identify what you need to improve on. Thanks Phil for everything!

Phil is easy to get on with which makes you feel at ease from the beginning, I enjoyed every single lesson and looked forward to getting back in the car the week after. After every lesson Phil sends a lesson briefing, explaining what I did well and what I needed too look at for my next lesson. Phil can only be one of the best around, I can not recommend him enough!"

Learning to drive has been such a fun and memorable journey. It feels like yesterday since started my lessons in August, and even though I have never driven a car before I felt totally safe as Phil´s teaching methods are not over complicated which really helped me.

He never once panicked or raised his voice, and was always very positive and supportive while driving which helped my confidence grow faster. The lesson briefings that he sends after each lesson really helped me as he tells you what went well, what you need to practice on before the next lesson, and the plan for the next lesson. This helped me massively as I could go out and practice in my own car on the things I needed to practice. I don´t know any other instructor that does a lesson briefing and I think it shows how much Phil is passionate and dedicated about getting you to pass. The lessons themselves went really fast because time does fly when you´re having fun, and there was the right balance of learning and laughter (even though his jokes where terrible😂).

When I was doing my theory I found that his app really helped as he could monitor my progress and tell me what areas I really needed to focus on. A week before my theory test we had a lesson just on the theory which helped as I could ask all the questions I was struggling on and understand the answer rather than guess it... a week later I passed my theory first time. I really do consider Phil a friend and miss our lessons. After I failed my first test he didn´t let me give up or make me feel bad in anyway, he said I just needed to get back up go again, this positive outlook meant that less than two weeks later I had passed my test. I recommend Phil to everyone, and all really does give you 100% of his focus in the car. I can´t thank Phil enough for everything, he really is the best instructor and don´t think he truly knows how good he is.

Learning to drive with Phil has been a massively enjoyable and rather hilarious experience on the whole. His manner of teaching is laid back, and his commitment to providing a positive experience has been worth every penny. Phil provided excellent value in his service: with emailed feedback after every lesson, handouts which break down manoeuvres into simple steps, and access to a theory practice site free of charge. His methods are incredibly thorough; you will never leave a lesson feeling confused, with Phil always ensuring that you feel confident in your understanding of the content.



Beyond simply learning to drive, Phil is a great laugh, I always found myself looking forward to the next lesson if for nothing but the chat! I will miss my weekly drive with Phil, I feel I’ve gained a great friend in my experience, since a Phil isn’t just for driving instruction, a Phil is for life!

My brother suggested Phil to me. Before I had the lessons, I was very nervous about driving but after the first few lessons I felt a lot more comfortable and that was because Phil had a very calm manor and stuck to the basics. Phil will give you lesson briefings each week which shows you which parts you did well and which parts need focus on. This really helped me understand what I need to do to become a better driver. Before any manoeuvre you do he goes over it showing you the best and the safest way to do the manoeuvre by drawing it out and showing you what you need to look out for when doing the manoeuvre. He is very patient and relaxed in the lessons so if you do make a mistake he will show you what went wrong. He gives out lesson handouts every week which make you more familiar and comfortable with manoeuvres and other parts to driving. In some of the handouts it shows you how to approach certain roads in Buxton for example Dukes Drive and other test routes. This helped me because when we came to the road I would know how to approach it and what steps to take to make sure that its done safely. He also helped me out massively with the theory because he creates an account for you on a theory website which allows you to complete mock tests and helps you learn the theory side to driving. Thanks again Phil.

Phil was recommended to me by a friend who claimed that he was friendly, efficient and an all around good instructor. She was not wrong. After my first lesson I felt completely at ease and much more confident than I had expected, my confidence grew more and more with each lesson and I improved quickly. After each lesson Phil would email me a briefing which I would read over before the next lesson and he would always reply to my texts within about an hour. I don’t know anyone else who has such an efficient and reliable instructor, Phil never cancelled a lesson and always tried to stretch out the money in a way that I would benefit from. Towards my practical test date Phil was really supportive and he made me feel calm. Because of Phil, I passed my practical test first time after only four months of driving. Don´t think twice about having Phil as your instructor, he is the best. I’m sure a lot of other people will tell you the same too.

Phil has been a brilliant driving instructor. He gives clear instructions and his calm manner puts you at ease. He’s very reliable- always on time and never cancelled a lesson. I received a post lesson briefing after each lesson which detailed what went well and what I needed to improve which gave some structure to my lessons. He also sent me handouts which I found really useful to keep on top on things between lessons. He knew I needed to pass my test as quickly as possible, and was very flexible when driving test cancellations came up. Thank you Phil!

Don´t hesitate to ask him for extra help with this or your driving test, as he´s always more than happy to help. I don´t have one bad thing to say about him as an instructor or as a person. I would 100% definitely recommend his service to any friend of mine that´s looking for an instructor for driving lessons.

Throughout life I tend to find all the old wives sayings tend to be true. If you buy cheap, you buy twice. Pass With Phil may be a little more expensive than other driving instructors, but the value you receive far out strips the cost. Along with the excellent lessons, you also get Amazing support to go with it. Emailed lesson de-brief, handouts to explain techniques further, free access to practice your theory, and most importantly, he´s always there at the end of the phone for a chat! No other instructor goes above and beyond like him, so save yourself money in the long run by spending a tiny bit more now. A student is only as good as its teacher.



Although I joined his list of many, many first time passes, I´m also a little disappointed. Our weekly drives were such fun, I´d be eagerly waiting for the next. Now thanks to Phil, not only have I gained a full driving licence, independence, but I´ve also gained a great friend.

After learning with Phil for 5 months, I recommend learning with him so much. Without fail, Phil made sure I had a lesson every week (no cancellations) and was never once late or unreliable in the slightest. Driving was made such a fun experience with no worries due to trusting Phil and being able to chill out whilst learning, I never felt I had one disastrous lesson as Phil would always make sure I understood everything thoroughly and that I was comfortable whilst driving!

The most down to earth guy I know who is always willing to help with theory or questions which some instructors don´t do. I honestly can´t thank you enough for helping me pass my test it´s the best feeling ever. I´d recommend pass with Phil to anyone looking for driving lessons

"Pass with Phil was recommended to us by a friend and does exactly what he says ´Pass with Phil´. From the introductory meeting to introduce himself we knew it was the right choice. He guided me through the theory and made suggestions for extra revision allowing me to pass first time. His lesson briefings are great with feedback on what to practice and each lesson is fun and his enthusiasm gave me confidence. Phil becomes a friend and makes driving easy. Thanks for everything would recommend Phil to everyone."

He´s incredibly organised and will give you any help/advice you ask for. I don´t think i´d of passed already with any other teacher - learn with Phil!"

5 Star Phil! Phil has just seen my son Jamie through to gaining his licence. I cannot praise Phil enough and would recommend him to everyone without hesitation! As a parent I received emails every lesson, how things had gone, good and...well not so good. Even though I´ve not been in the car with Phil I know the word bad would not be used as he is so full of encouragement and positivity, his coaching skills with Jamie have been excellent to improve his driving after every lesson. Phil sent Jamie texts to remind him if he hadn´t done any theory practice as Phil could watch when he logged on to revise, all again through encouragement. Phil´s superb coaching and a true sense of what the individual needs of the candidate led to Jamie passing his Theory and Practical tests first time. I even pushed Jamie to take extra lessons the week before his test, Phil could have taken the money, however he said "No you don´t need them!" So honest Phil as well! I cannot praise Phil enough...he is an outstanding example of a driving instructor! So well done Jamie, and very very well done Phil

A friend recommended pass with Phil to me.



From the very first lesson Phil put me at ease. He is very patient, never shouts and explains everything so well. He´s funny too.



I can honestly say I looked forward to my lessons with Phil. He wasn´t just a driving instructor, he became my friend.



Thank you for everything and getting me through my theory and practical tests first time.

I chose Phil as my driving instructor because my sister (who passed first time with him) absolutely raved about him as a teacher and as a lovely, kind person. After passing my test with only 2 minor faults I can say that she was completely right! I started off a very nervous driver, but Phil always put me at ease and through his reassurance and confidence in me as a driver, I became confident in myself. Phil made driving lessons fun with his horrendous jokes and was never strict, as I know some instructors can be. He even turned mistakes into positives by helping me to learn from them, rather than worry about them. Phil made learning to drive a really positive and enjoyable experience for me and as a result I am confident in my skills as a safe driver and would say I have gained a friend. I would recommend Pass with Phil to anyone.

"I found Phil on a search for local driving instructors in Buxton, he had good reviews and seemed very professional so I got in contact and I am so glad I did! He messaged me back almost straight away and was very accommodating of my situation – I hadn’t driven for over two years and was nervous to get back behind the wheel. Phil sent me handouts over email to read before my lesson to refresh what I already knew and these helped massively, along with his unique style of teaching. Phil equips you with easy to learn tools for manoeuvres and driving in general and teaches in a calming and reassuring manner. He has made me feel a confident and safe driver and I know that he would be happy to help if I ever needed it again. I would recommend Pass With Phil to anybody! Thank you Phil"
added 11th Jul 18

A friend suggested Pass with Phil to me when I was struggling with another instructor. Driving wasn´t something I enjoyed and I would often return from a lesson unhappy and dreading the next one. With Phil however, the opposite is true; from the start he encouraged me, reassured me, and made me laugh to the point I actually looked forward to lessons.



Phil is very patient and explained any mistakes so that I understood why they happened and then how to correct them. His positive disposition stopped me dwelling on those mistakes so I could carry on and ultimately pass.



Phil sends out handouts summarising each lesson which are useful as they allow you to see where improvements can be made and reflect on them in preparation for the next lesson and the test.



Would 100% recommend him to anyone. Thank you for everything Phil!

If you´re looking for supportive , understanding , enjoyable lessons, then I recommend Phil in every circumstance. Phil can adapt to anyone´s learning style, by demonstrations , handouts/leaflets and electronic games. This really helped me achieve my potential and achieve goals towards my driving , I don´t just know the physical parts to driving , I understand why I understand exactly why I am doing something. Phil is such an approachable , fun, caring instructor I wouldnt dare go with anyone else. I have had a wonderful experience , had fun along the way , and passed my test with 1 minor.

Phil has a great sense of humour, and although his jokes are shocking, he still managed to make me laugh multiple times during my lessons!! He is extremely reliable & organised and if you´re ever unsure about anything he´s always at the end of the phone to help you. Nothing ever seems like it´s too much trouble.

Whenever I was nervous or uncertain about a situation, he always put me at ease. His good sense of humour, which usually left me in hysterics, made driving a delight and I used to look forward to my lessons every week. He is very patient and understanding which made bad situations less stressful and worrying. Even with my theory test, he offered great support and helped me learn from my mistakes which led me to pass on my first attempt.



Although I´m over the moon to be out on the roads, it´s safe to say I miss my lessons with Phil.



Overall, Phil is an excellent teacher who will always make you feel comfortable and confident with your driving which will lead you to the success of passing. I´d recommend him to anyone who is thinking of learning to drive. Thanks Phil :) "

"Phil is a very delightful person to know. My very first time driving was quite an achievement. Phil went through all the basics with me, and while it took a bit of time and patience I managed to get the hang of things. before I knew it the first few months went by and I started to improve and drive with confidence. I received plenty of handouts and advice which were really useful and helped me pass my theory first time aswell as preparing me for my driving test.



Phil never gave up on me and instead helped me increase my confidence for driving as well as improving my driving skills. I don´t think I could have done any better myself without having him to aid me. You cannot go wrong in any way as he tailors each lesson to a level suitable for you!



Finally he´s a very kind and outgoing individual. lessons were really fun and enjoyable and we shared plenty of stories and moments together. Highly recommended! Good luck to Phil & all future drivers."

Where do I start? There are countless good things to say about ´Pass with Phil´ without a bad word to its name!

I first found out about Pass with Phil when I applied to take theory lessons during my first couple of weeks at college. It was about a month or two later that me and a friend took up the lessons provided and lo and behold, it was where I met ole Phil!



On our first driving lesson, I was very nervous with my anxiety going through the roof and Phil could see this due to my handling the car horribly down a fairly straight road in first gear! He didn´t tell me to ´shake it off´ or to ´try focus on something else´ but instead provided a sense of security that everything will be fine and nothing will go wrong as long as he was in the car besides me, he asked me to take my time and take deep breathes without rushing into it and it helped!

Phil is extremely good at his job and goes above and beyond his duty to help you succeed in driving. On any lesson he helps to break the nervousness and silence by distracting you and asking how you have been and what´s new in life before kicking straight into a lesson with you raring to go. Phil is extremely patient and doesn´t shout at all no matter how wrong you may go, he identifies your weak points (like a robot! 😉) and helps you learn to perfect them one by one. Phil also provides helpful handouts for you taking your theory test or driving test, these handouts contain very useful information about the road and the car itself (So go over them repeatedly because you´ll never hear the end of it!!!)

I would recommend Phil to absolutely anyone because let´s face it, he´s legend...wait for it...dary. Legendary!



To top all of that off, I would have to say "Thank you Phil for being a fantastic instructor, for boosting my confidence in driving, helping me pass both my Theory and Test and for having faith in me when I didn´t in myself. Y

Pass with Phil Driving School was recommended to me from a number of people. Phil calls round to the house before lessons to introduce himself and the car. The lessons are relaxed, a good laugh and nothing is rushed, allowing progress to be made at individual speeds making the experience more enjoyable.

Phil always emails a lesson briefing after every lesson, letting you know what went well, highlights areas to improve, a plan for your next lesson and home learning tasks via handouts on manoeuvres, road markings, etc.

The Theory Test Pro website was one of the most beneficial things for theory test preparation. It is a great help for highway code questions and hazard perception videos. Phil is able to keep track of your progress and suggest sections to focus on.

Phil is always contactable for any questions. I have loved every minute of learning to drive with Phil and I would recommend him to anyone wanting to learn to drive or improve their confidence behind the wheel. Phil teaches you drive, not just to pass a test.

Thank you very much for helping me to pass both my theory and practical first time, Rachael (The SuperStar) xx

I have known Phil since I was 6yrs old when he lived in France. I used to try and drown him in the



swimming pool; I am so glad I didn’t succeed as he would not have been able to help me pass both



my theory and practical driving tests first time.



Phil’s lessons are always fun and enjoyable, he is very friendly and funny, sometimes the



conversation can be completely random but this helps you to relax and makes the learning process



so much easier.



He is extremely patient and has a good way of correcting mistakes, always full of encouragement



and never critical.



Phil also took time out to help me with my theory prep and has an excellent theory help section on



his website.



After passing my test Phil took me on a motorway lesson as I was nervous about driving on a



motorway for the first time.



I chose Phil not just because he was a family friend but also because he has such an excellent



reputation and having been taught by him I now know why that is.



I would highly recommend Phil to any learner driver.

Phil made my whole experience of learning to drive fun and exciting and I was always looking forward to our next lesson. Phil also sent over a review of each lesson we had together so I could see what I had done well on and what I needed to improve. This massively helped my whole learning to drive experience as I could go home and reflect on what I needed to work on. I enjoyed every second of learning to drive with Phil, he is supportive, friendly and we had such a laugh as well as getting me through my lessons and helping me to pass.

Phil will do anything he can to get you through both of your tests, theory and practical, I can´t put into words how great Phil was on lessons, especially coming up to my tests.

Every lesson is full of laughs (and the occasional tear) but i know i looked forward to each lesson so much each week! The lessons are not easy and definitely push you but you never feel uncomfortable or over stressed.

Phil goes above and beyond to make sure you get the most out of the lessons, he sends you briefings after each session which tell you what went well and what you will be working on next time. He is always there 24/7 if you have any questions and is really approachable so you always feel that you can ask anything and not feel silly.

Phil also helps you with the theory test, he gives you access to a useful website on which he can monitor your results and will make time to help you if you are unsure of certain areas.

What can I say, I can´t thank Phil enough for helping me through my driving over the last 4 months. I remember my very first lesson back in April and I knew from the first five minutes in the car I´d made the right decision. He had so much patience with me when other instructors would get frustrated. There were times when I would get annoyed and didn´t want to do it anymore but he helped me believe in myself and coached me through everything constructively rather than making me feel useless. Phil knew when to be serious but also have a laugh at the same time, I never once dreaded my driving lessons, I always looked forward to them. I am genuinely sad that I won´t have driving lessons to look forward too but I´m extremely grateful that I have my independence now. I will miss you getting mad at me for turning the wheel the wrong way during left reverse or looking at the gear stick

I was never interested in driving and could never find an instructor that I felt like I could sit it a car comfortably with; it wasn´t for months after my 17th that I was hearing all these goods things about Phil off other people he´s taught; encouraging me to give him a ring and see for myself. Just by him coming round and meeting me and telling me what he was about before me getting in a car with him made me feel so much more comfortable and I knew immediately he was the right instructor for me. I´d never even turned a car on before my first lesson and I don´t think any one else could have made me feel as comfortable and relax my nerves as much as Phil did. Every time I had a bad lesson and lost my confidence, Phil helped me to build it back up and even when I failed my test the first time, he reassured me that I was a good driver and that I was capable of doing it, which then led to me passing just 2 weeks after. I couldn´t have done it without Phil´s help and I would recommend him to anyone. He´s ace! Thank you so much for all your help and patience, especially helping me turn the wheel in the many occasions where I forgot to.

"I would like to take a moment to thank Phil, not only one of the nicest people you could ever meet but the best driving instructor in the world!



When choosing a driving instructor I was always worried what it would be like. Would they shout at you? Would they be mad if you couldn´t get something right? I have to say I chose the calmest and patient driving instructor and so should you! I spent most lessons laughing and smiling, and couldn´t wait to get driving again the following week. Even on bad days he would never complain or get annoyed, despite me having a breakdown over parallel parking!



Phil was great from start to finish, from the moment I first moved the car 2 metres and screamed with excitement to the nervous wreck taking my test.



I´ve always found it hard to learn by being told things and preferred to take a more ´hands on´ learning method. Phil respects each and every one of his learners learning skills and adapts every single lesson. He had the patience of a saint trying to explain the same manoeuvres over to me again and again. He then continued to have the patience when I didn´t understand the theory test. He took the time and we sat through it and after 1 hour I was able to see where I was going wrong and suddenly the hardest thing In the world seemed so simple!



Lessons with Phil were always jam packed full of information and fun. Whether it´s learning something new or just perfecting and practising that manoeuvre giving you the confidence when passed to get it right every single time.



To summarise, Phil isn´t a guy that just teaches you to pass your test, he teaches you to drive. Believe me there´s a big difference. He will go the extra mile for anyone and will do whatever he can to help you always in a professional but fun manner! I have even had the confidence now to take on a driving job, only a couple of months after passing. I couldn´t recommend Phil more.

"I´m so sorry this is so late, since passing I have been out driving so much, it slipped my mind.

That just shows that Phil taught me how to drive not just to pass my test. Phil is the best driving instructor I could have asked for.

I´m a very stubborn girl, and was very close to giving up at one stage, Phil showed me that I was a good driver and that I shouldn´t let the nerves get the better of me.

He put up with all my moods and moans when I didn´t want to do parallel parks.

He showed me how fun driving is and what a great experience it is.

I don´t think I would have enjoyed driving as much if it wasn´t for such a fantastic teacher.

Never once did he raise his voice to me, even if I messed up completely. Every lesson we had was a laugh and so laid back, it didn´t even feel like one.

I always looked forward to our lessons each week and I´ll be sad not to be having them anymore.

I couldn´t thank you anymore Phil! I am so grateful for having such a brilliant instructor.

Just remember, when those indigo reverse lights come in, I told you so lol x x "

PASSED 1ST TIME
Thank you Phil for helping me pass my test.. 1st time! I started my driving experience back in November and unfortunately made the mistake of being too keen and taking the 1st instructor that came along! I had liked Phil’s page and watched all the positive updates while I was suffering with my instructor shouting at me and draining my confidence.

After 56 hours enough was enough and I got in contact with Phil. I arranged to do an intense manoeuvres lesson 2 weeks before I had my test booked. I couldn´t believe the change in respect. He had all the time in the world for me.. Within that 3 hours I could finally reverse around a corner and parallel park!! After big discussions I told Phil I could not carry on my driving with my old instructor. I´d of been setting myself to fail. With a struggle Phil made the space for me to learn with him.. I cancelled my test and carried on driving with Phil for the next 5 weeks. I was a nervous wreck! In my head I couldn´t and wouldn´t do it! Phil reassured me and boosted my confidence. Within my 2nd lesson with him we was laughing and joking and driving didn´t seem so scary. Everything fitted into place.

I no longer had to put up with shouting! Something I wasn´t use to! With a few tears along the way Phil fully prepared me to take my test. He ensured I had all the handouts I needed ready for the big day.. He was always on hand, be it text, phone, Facebook or in person for any worries I had before test day.. He reassured all negatives and turned them into positives. .. NO BODY turns up to his lessons with self disbelief! ! I took Phil along on my driving test as a friendly face. He reassured me that I would nail my driving test.. I came out with 3 minors and a PASS.. Phil helped me join the club of 1st time pass on both driving test and theory :)



So to sum it all up.. Phil is the only driving instructor around that I would recommend. He can accommodate for even the worst of self-confid

"Thank you Phil for helping me pass first time. You really helped me gain the skills needed to be a good driver. I always looked forward to my driving lessons as you made them fun, you made me feel comfortable and I really enjoyed myself.



I unfortunately failed my theory first time with my first driving instructor. I then went with Phil and he taught me everything you need to know for your theory test and I passed straight away. It was all down to Phil´s good teaching and I am very grateful.



Phil always kept cool, calm and collective whenever I made a mistake and when I needed to improve something. He would always tell you politely and re-assure you and help you to improve.



I would highly recommend Philip, he is the best instructor anyone could experience, have a good laugh and just enjoy their time driving.



I am going to miss my lessons with Phil, I will never forget anything you have taught me and always stay safe. I cant thank you enough for helping me achieve my goal. Thank you so much, I will miss you "

"Phil is without a doubt the best instructor to learn to drive with. He has all the patience in the world, and puts everything into teaching people to drive safely and with confidence. Everything I have learned is down to Phil! I would never have passed my theory, or my driving test without all his help.



He is always there whether you need a chat or help with theory questions! There are so so many nice things I could say about Phil, but I think it would be hours worth of typing!



I have never once walked away from a lesson feeling disappointed about mistakes I have made as Phil shows you in a patient and friendly manner where you have gone wrong and how to improve it, and makes something negative into something positive. Every lesson, I have had a great laugh! I´m kinda sad that I won´t be driving with Phil anymore, but I´ll never forget anything he has taught me! Thanks Phil! I´ll miss Ya! X

I just wanted to take this moment to extend a heartfelt thank you to Phil, whom, - whether he realises it or not, - has really helped me in overcoming my fear of driving. Nonetheless, at thirty-five years of age I have been putting this moment off for eighteen years now. Under his expert guidance I passed my test yesterday, and over these last few months I can’t fully put into words the feeling of self-confidence he has instilled in me. That is to say, not only is Phil extremely practical in his tutelage, he is also very intuitive with an easy-going and positively charged manner. There is something of the optimist in him and it is highly contagious, - even for somebody as naturally downbeat as myself!

To summarise though, I have had three other instructors over the years and I can say without hesitation, that Phil is a good head and shoulders above them in every respect. It is sometimes difficult to find a good instructor, as ultimately, it is always a shot in the dark. However, to find a ‘great’ instructor is plain lucky. Phil is a ‘great’ instructor, and I couldn’t rate him more highly if I tried. Thanks again Phil, it has been a real privilege.

"Phil is a wonderful driving instructor who taught me many skills that I needed throughout my time learning driving. I would recommend Phil to absolutely anybody, there are so many nice things I could say about Phil; he is so easy to get along with, and he really makes you feel relaxed and comfortable. Phil never failed to make me laugh each lesson. Phil was brilliant with helping me with my Theory; he gave me constant feedback and encouragement, and really goes the extra mile for you. Phil most of all has really helped me with my confidence. I passed my Theory Test and Practical Test first time round, I really could not have done it without Phil and his support. Phil is such a fantastic Driving instructor; I really loved every driving lesson. Thanks again! X

Mahatma Ghandi and the Dalai Lama are both men well known for their patience, but even these two would have struggled with me as their student. Not Phil though, he has patiently guided me from a stage of abject horror at the thought of driving to a point where not only have I passed my driving test, but also am confident in my ability as a well-rounded and, above all, safe driver.



Not only has Phil been the sole catalyst in the process of my development from non-driver to confident full licence holder, through learning with him I feel I have gained a good friend. He doesn’t just care about you as a driver he cares about all of his students as people, something evident to me in his advice about running leading up to my first half marathon.



Ultimately if you want to learn to drive with a confidence that will serve you well beyond the test process and ultimately discover the joy of driving, then Phil is your man. Thanks again, mate, couldn’t have done it without you.





Cheers again, mate, see you soon.

´Passing my driving test with my Dad as my instructor was really good because I was treated the same as every other student, and it didn´t feel weird to actually be learning with my Dad. When I was in the car, he was my instructor just like with everybody else. I always felt safe and at ease and I learned only the best because he´s such a good instructor. I honestly couldn´t have passed my test if it wasn´t for him! The good thing is that even though I´m his daughter, he wasn´t afraid of telling me when I did something wrong and areas that I needed to work on, just like another student. Definitely the best instructor/Dad ever! Thanks for everything, we did it together and we passed.´

If anyone were to ask me to recommend them a driving instructor then I’d tell them to contact Phil straight away. From the day I had my first lesson, I knew that I was comfortable learning under Phil’s instruction and that I would be taught at a professional level. Phil is extremely friendly and is there whenever you need to ask him about anything. I have thoroughly enjoyed driving with Phil and the excellent instruction I received was shown through my great result in my driving test. Thank you so much for the help you’ve given me Phil, all the best for the future

Phil, I can´t thank you enough for how much you´ve helped me over these past 4 months. It´s been an absolute amazing experience and I wouldn´t have wanted to experience it with anyone else. You´ve always had faith in me and boosted my confidence when I needed it, which helped so much. You´ve always gone the extra mile to give help when I needed it, especially with my theory. You´ve not only been an amazing instructor, but you´ve always been a great friend. Your lessons have always put me in a good mood and made me smile throughout. I´d recommend you to anyone and I´ve honestly had such an amazing time. I´m going to miss our lessons and those lesson briefings popping into my inbox!

Well what can I say! You are what I call a role model for driving instructors, I couldn´t of asked for anyone better. Being on time, having a laugh, help me improve by every lesson, excellent structure of lessons and evaluating the individual and giving feedback is all that a person would need to learn to drive. I would recommend you to anyone who are willing to give in the time and make the effort to drive as that´s all you ask for as it´s down to us as well as you!



Thank you so much Phil and hopefully see you around in my little blue Peugeot 107!

Well where to start ay Phil.

I have had a fun few months driving with you, I am sure you haven´t failed to make me smile every lesson.

You taught me with great patients and understanding whilst making the experience enjoyable.

Your emails after every lesson were helpful towards my theory test and practical test.

I know we struggled with me working everyday, it made it hard because I was always tired after work and then to do a 2hour lesson, some days it showed I was tired.

Phil is a great driving instructor, his calm and focused approach really helped me take my first steps into driving, not only teaching you how to pass your test but also how to drive, you can tell the time and effort Phil puts in behind the scenes sending you reviews on your previous lesson and handouts which you can run over at home, it really shows that he wants you too pass just as much as you do.



Thanks,

Well what can I say about Phil Shaw? Other than he is the godfather of all Driving Instructors. You wanna pass your driving test then Phil Shaw is your man that can. He cares about each and every student like they are a member of his family. He not only teaches you how to be a safe confident driver but why you should be doing it in the m.s.p.s.l. order, to enable you to become the perfect driver he has taught you to be. I don´t think I have ever met a man who is so passionate about his job. He is always there to help you. Whether it be to pass your theory test i.e test Pro, or a text at stupid o´clock about a question that has been niggling away at you. He always gets back to you a.s.a.p. If it wasn´t for Phil Shaw I would never have become the safe confident driver that I am today. So I want to say a massive thank you now Phil As not only did you do a good job at teaching me to drive but you also made it so much fun. I will cherish some if not all of my driving memories I have like when we saw a man on a bicycle with a parrot on his shoulder driving down towards Morrisons. Strange but true. lol . my only regret about passing my Driving test is that I won´t get to take driving lessons anymore with Phil.I gonna love ya and leave it here cause otherwise I could drown on forever but you already know there´s no shutting me up ay Phil lol Stay safe and stay true. your number 1 driving student Debra Millward x x x

Phil is not only an exceptional driving instructor, he is also fantastic at inspiring confidence in his pupils.

I started off nervous after struggling to drive a car in the past, through patience and motivation Phil transformed me into a safe and sure-footed driver. His focus on improving hazard perception allows learners to easily understand and predict the dangers on the road. One of the most prominent aspects of his teaching technique is constant communication and feedback, on approach to junctions he will guide you through all the steps necessary to safely carry out the manoeuvre. As the lessons progress he holds back, allowing you to become accustomed to judging a situation by yourself.

Phil is also fantastic company in the car and available at any time via email or by phone.

I will miss the fun of the lessons and wish all his students the very best.

Thanks Phil.

Learning to drive with Phil has been a great experience, I always felt relaxed with him and he’s super easy to talk and calmed my nerves every time that I had a little panic. He was supportive in every way, from giving me useful tips for when I would be out on my own, dropping a text when I’d had a good lesson and even helping me sort out difficult situations I was facing away from driving! Phil went the extra mile that other friend’s instructors certainly didn’t, this included the lesson briefings after lessons and the theory test pro which was a great tool when preparing for my theory test. Phil is always so enthusiastic in the car and when I finally was able to do a left reverse he was just as over the moon as I was; to have someone that it there to encourage you as well has teach you to learn to drive has been incredible, Phil has so much passion for teaching and this really comes across in the car, he doesn’t just want to get you through your test, but give you the skills that will enable you to safely drive and drive well once you are out on the road on your own. The confidence that I have gained in my own ability, both in driving and other aspects have been down to the continued support Phil has given me since I began to drive with him the February. I can’t thank him enough for the vital skills that I have been taught and are helping me every time I go out in the car. Actually going to really miss lessons with Phil, despite the thrill of being able to now drive on my own. Thank you for everything Phil!!

Phil has been the best driving instructor ever. I have always felt that him teaching people to drive is more like his passion than his job, and every time you get something right for the first time such as a manoeuvre, he gets the same buzz as you do! He has always been supportive and encouraging and always taught me to believe in my ability to drive. Not only is he an amazing instructor, he is also someone you know you could talk to about anything because hes always there to listen and try to understand. The extra support outside of the lessons was also so helpful as he gives you a lesson briefing and handouts after every lesson which you can go over and reflect on, and the theory test pro helped me to pass my theory test first time! So thanks Phil for all the support and all the fun, miss you already!

Thank you to Phil on helping me pass my test, I really wouldn’t be the more confident driver I am today without him. From the start I was very nervous and his supportive and encouraging nature helped me to soon develop the confidence I needed on the road. Phil encouraged me to use the Theory test pro and I couldn’t have passed my theory test without it. It was a great interactive tool that Phil provides which was so helpful. Not only did he teach me how to pass my test, he taught me how to drive by understanding the affects of situations and reacting/solving problems, which I needed to use on my test! Every step of the way was a great laugh and I will miss him very much! I would recommend him to anyone, thank you Pass with Phil.

Phil is such a dude and he really cares for his learners when it comes to driving and person problems. Phil is very supportive and encouraging, whenever I had a bad day he would always cheer me up and make me believe that anything is possible. Iv really enjoyed learning with Phil his lessons have been the best and we have had such a laugh! Thanks for everything Phil. :D

I passed my test a year ago, but I had never been on the motorway before. I wanted a change from my last driving instructor and ending up finding Phil who I found to be much better. He helped me feel calm and seemed very professional as he gave me a booklet with information on it and said he gives his pupils one every lesson so they can form into a file which I thought was a great idea (my old instructor didn´t give me anything like that). He also showed up early and we finished slightly late which shows he gives each pupil 100%, I am going to recommend him to my friends and family.
