"Now twenty-five, when was born it was a difficult birth with lots of complications. The doctors diagnosed me with severe learning difficulties and the inability to understand even the most basic tasks. I did not speak a single word until I was five and a half years old. But with the love and understanding from my family and years of extra private lessons from teachers and doctors I began to slowly understand things.

Several years ago I was very fortunate to meet Mick James my driving instructor who is the most patient driving instructor that you will ever meet. Under his guidance I passed my theory and driving test.

This was a massive thing for me and opened up a whole new world. I now run my own property development company and without Mick’s help I would not be in the fantastic position that I am today. So if you have some sort of disability but wish to learn to drive then please contact Mick I cannot recommend him highly enough."


"I highly recommend Mick to anyone who is looking to pass their test. He is patient very easy going and above all a brilliant instructor. He made my lessons informative but yet a joy to be out in the car. On the first lesson he had complete confidence in me and assured me of this throughout my lessons. I passed first time! Thanks again Mick."

"Mick James is fantastic! He made me feel comfortable, at ease and confident for all my lessons and my test. I wouldn't have wanted to drive with any other instructor. Thank you Mick for giving me a good driving experience and for all your help. I would not hesitate to recommend him and hopefully my brother will be joining him in a few months time."

"In all my life I never thought I would ever pass my driving test. I had had lessons in my early twenties and failed four times. Unhappy with my previous instructor's methods I vowed I would never drive again, but meeting Mick was one of the best things in my life. He was patient and never made me feel silly. He made it fun to learn and not only got me through my driving test but also helped me with my theory as I am dyslexic. More recently, after learning with Mick for just a very short time, I have now passed them first time."


"When I first went to Mick I was very unsure of my driving and had no confidence because of an earlier experience. Mick calmed me down and made me start believing in myself again. Soon after I would walk in after my lessons with a smile instead of feeling like I could not do it. I passed my test first time and love driving now. If you are thinking of taking lessons then choose Mick, he's great."

Miss M McLaren

"Being a first time passer I would highly recommend Mick James. I felt confident behind the wheel and I was in full control of the car while Mick was instructing and advising me what to do and where to go. My sessions were a lot of fun and I was always excited waiting for my next lesson – ten out of ten."


"I called Mick following a recommendation from a friend whose daughter had passed first time under his instruction. He immediately put my daughter at ease and she was full of confidence following her first lesson. His tuition was precise and comprehensive, he advised her to take her theory after just six hours tuition. She passed then after fourteen lessons she took a practical and failed, but after a further four lessons, passed second time.

All in all I found Mick to be friendly, always at the end of the phone to guide and advise. What I really appreciated about his teaching style and ethics is that he prides in achieving a very high standard of driving, very quickly, fast tracking students to their test without the need for hours and hours of expensive lessons. I'll be calling him again in twelve months to put my son through his lesson too!"
