What our students say

Shaun Cobb

Just want to say a big thank you to Andy for teaching me not just to pass my test but to be a safe and aware driver for many years to come. Fantastic instructor and a great person thank you again Andy!

Lucy Beard

Thanks Lynne! Yep, still in shock 😂😂 thank you so so much. I'll miss our weekly chats (and having to pull over because we're laughing too much!) best driving instructor ever! Xx

Katie Ellis

Prime Driving School is amazing! My instructor Lynne was so calm which really helped my nerves. I was able to pass first time with only 5 months of lessons! The teaching is impeccable and I can't recommend Prime Driving School enough!


Josh is a very good driving instructor he makes you feel at ease straight away and is patient with you when learning.

He has helped me build my confidence when driving and would definitely recommend him.

Abhishek Nath

I would like to state that Rhys Morgan is the best Driving Instructor ever.

I passed with 3 minor mistakes first time due to his excellent guidance and teaching.


I was dubious and anxious about trying in London.... Thankfully Rhys was extremely supportive and more than patient about my nervousness and lack of confidence!

Passed my driving test with Rhys in Sept 2018 with 1 minor! After moving from Wales to london, and already having

failed a number of tests, Couldn't have asked for more 😊. I definitely owe my pass to him! P.) Great sense of humour too 😁 (it cant hurt

can it?!)


Thank you so much for helping me through my test, patience and very professional and appreciate for all the support and lessons leading up to my driving test (which I passed FIRST time). Would really recommend Prime Driving School and many thanks again for your help.


Mark has been an exceptional driving instructor.

He is a patient and clear instructor who turned me from a nervous first time driver to a confident driver in just a few months. I passed first time today thanks to Mark - I will miss our driving lessons!


I would highly recommend Mark to anybody.

I had previously tried two other driving schools and unfortunately found them unprofessional. I went to Prime and was instructed by Mark who I found to be reliable, helpful and progressed my driving professionally and confidently.


Amazing teacher very flexible and really enjoyed my lessons with Mark.


Best driving school, best instructor Donna many thx for you


Had Stuart as my instructor - spent a period of time in instructor purgatory looking for the right fit before I started with him. Stuart is a clear, conscious and straight to the point teacher.
He will hold you account and set goals to help you pass while never patronising but supporting and targeting areas of improvement.
Would recommend 🙌 thank you


Many thanks.  Highly recommend David!


I had Carrie Anne as my driving instructor, honestly one of the most loveliest people you will meet. She's so nice and calming in the car and explains everything really well and thorough. Would highly recommend! Passed first time in Portsmouth!

Alex Dunne

I can't praise Lynne enough. She's so thorough and enthusiastic, best instructor I've had! (There were a few)


Passed my first test with Shaun, who was patient and very helpful throughout!


I had an amazing time learning to drive. After having only a few lessons  I was able to take my test and pass, within a few months. Claire is a lovely and talkative instructor and I would recommend her to anyone! Thank you!!!


Mark was absolutely amazing! Friendly, reassuring and honest, So happy to have passed with him

Alicia Turner

Really happy with every single lesson! Andy was amazing.


Jacquie was honestly the best driving instructor I could have wished for.

Calm. patient and totally put me at ease the moment I sat in the drivers seat. I don't think I could have passed first time without her.

Her tuition has been invaluable. I am so appreciative of everything she has done with me and I'll be recommending her to anyone and everyone.


"Passed my test first time, and thats all thanks to Jacquie!!!
Best teacher anyone could ask for, had the best time and she made learning to drive a really enjoyable experience. She made sure I fully understood everything I was doing and created a great environment for me to feel completely comfortable.
Jacquie believed in me since the very beginning and always reassured me along the way (even when I was doubting myself) and I don't think I can ever thank her enough for that.
I'm definitely going to miss her and I don' think i'll ever forget her. She's genuinely a fantastic person and I would ABSOLUTELY recommend her to anyone who has never driven before and wants to have an amazing time driving :)"


"I had Mark Gaze as my driving instructor and I reached out to Prime Driving School after my last instructor made me very anxious and scared. I think it's easy to say that if you compared my first lesson with Mark to my last, you would think I was a completely different person!
He was very calm and kind and I really enjoyed learning with him! He had a great way of teaching which made me feel confident and was not over complicated, Because of this I managed to pass first time! Now, if I ever lose confidence in my driving again, I will definitely want Mark by my side!


I passed first time with Prime Driving School

Thank you to Sayeed and Prime Driving School for ensuring such quality teaching.

I Couldn't have asked for a better, more patient and professional instructor than Sayeed.



Communication, Professionalism, Quality, Value


I had shaun as my driving instructor and he helps me to pass my driving test. He was very helpful and very patient and went out of his way to make sure I passed my test before my theory test runout.

I would recommend him to my friends


Thank you to Shaun who helped me pass my test first time!

Patient, honest and professional Shaun motivated me and supported me. Lynne is fabulous and should be proud to have such a fantastic team member.


Passed first time with bags of confidence! Couldn’t of thanked Enayet more!
Thank you so much!

Ana Sav

Thank you Steve for the patience you had.

I drove you bananas with my 'what if..' questions, while I jumped to your throat out of the blue 'cause I was being tired or cold or hungry or stressed and thank you for the belief you had in me when I lacked confidence!

I couldn't have hoped for a better instructor. 


Just passed first time having Mark Rowett as instructor. I can't recommend him highly enough, he is a great instructor and no matter how stressed you are he will give you the confidence you need to become a good driver.

And also for those who have English as a second language, he is the BEST. Don't hesitate to contact him!!! Thank you Mark!


Brilliant teacher,

Very patient and good explainer!! Managed to get 0 driving faults with Mark's help. Would recommend highly!!


Thank you Andy for everything and for not letting me give up your the best instructor ever.

Thanks again


Fully recommend Paul D'Arcy.. very professional and honest. Good at reporting after each lesson.


My son passed first time with Stuart so I would like to recommend to others what a great driving instructor he was.

Right from the start of me contacting the school they where very accommodating and managed to get him started with his instructor straight away. My son said he felt very at ease with him and found him very patient and very informative we would highly recommended Stuart 👍


I moved from Red driving school to Prime and thats where my instructor Deborah gladly taught me her tips and tricks on how to pass my driving test and I passed my test with 0 faults courtesy of her.

So if you live in South East London and want a good instructor for a reasonable price then I would highly recommend Deborah.


Mark is an excellent instructor and a very friendly and patient man.

I am really happy that I learned here!


Passed first time! My instructor was Sayed, he's a great guy and instructor. He stays calm but always pushes you in the right way to progress and drive to a high level.


I wasn't a natural driver but I am now driving with confidence.

Rhys was great. He is relaxed and fun to spend time with, but takes his job seriously. Also, if you're looking for a 90s music expert for your pub quiz team, Rhys is your guy.


Passed first time! Thank you Danny, will be recommending to friends!


It was a pleasure working with Jacqueline. Lessons were fun. It was an easy journey and I can't believe it's all done with no stress. Will recommend Jacqueline.


Daniel was an amazing instructor he was so patient and was always happy, couldn't ask for a better instructor.
I even passed first time with 2 minors
thank you very much
highly recommend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Great lessons, learned so much so quickly and I would highly recommend this driving school!

Absolutely brilliant


Mark is a great instructor.

He made me feel extremely comfortable in the car from the beginning, and made the whole learning experience an enjoyable one.

I felt extremely well prepared going into my test, passed first time and feel very confident now driving on my own.


Graham was a brilliant instructor, passed my test first try


Passed first time thanks to Mark Gaze. He was very patient with me and helped me throughout. Would recommend!

Ben Norris-Warton

Prime Driving School has been absolutely above and beyond in their quality of teaching.

My Instructor, Lynne has been brilliant. She's clear with instructions, very encouraging, gives really good explanations and instructions on how to improve and what to do and is really lovely and chatty. Lynne's car that I have used in my lessons is really good. It drives smoothly and is responsive and Lynne keeps it in excellent condition.

When I first met Lynne, she told me she was very proud that her car's alloys have never scratched/scuffed. I'm pleased to say that even after my driving of the car the alloys are still as was! - which goes to show how good her teaching is.

Prime is well worth the money! I recommend Lynne and her business 100%.


My lessons with Rhys were spot on.

His teaching style was thorough and effective. His experience as an instructor was made evident through the well timed progression in the lessons resulting in a steady pace of learning and my feeling comfortably prepared on the day of my test.

Many thanks Rhys

Brad Challis

Steve helped me across the finishing line after a long time struggling to pass. Brilliant instructor and driving school.

Bradley Shepherd

Andy was the best driving instructor I ever had, made me feel confident in my driving.


Thanks to Chris, I passed my test first time and with zero faults.

He not only taught me how to pass my test, but also how to drive safely and economically on the road. He is a funny, friendly guy and I would definitely recommend him along with Prime Driving School for any new or improving drivers.


Had Donna as my driving instructor, great lessons and always made it fun and enjoyable. Passed first time with just one minor thanks to Donna! Thank you very much!


Would recommend to new and experienced drivers.

Josh has excellent patience and knowledge to help you pass your test.
Modern car and driving techniques taught.


Donna has given me so much love, support and confidence throughout my lessons with her, giving me the pushes I need to pass my test, without her I wouldn’t have passed first time.

Thank you Donna for being there for me.

Lessons with Donna are comfortable, informative and she makes you feel calm and like you have control of your vehicle.


Passed first time thanks to my instructor Steve!

Great lessons, learned very fast with him and prepares you beyond expectations for the test.

Highly recommend."


Mark was my instructor, he is brilliant, patient and very easy to talk too, would definitely recommend him


I highly recommend Mark

Had the best experience with having Mark as my driving instructor. I truly enjoyed the lessons with Mark, his patience and assurance in my driving, really helped boost my confidence.


Patsy was such a supportive driving instructor and really helped me feel much more comfortable in the car. 

Each lesson she would ask what it was I’d like to achieve/cover during our time and then tailor her lessons around this which helped me to progress and improve my driving a lot faster than I did with my previous instructor.

Her general positive attitude really helped me to enjoy our lessons and I got much more out of them as a result. Thank you Patsy!



"Very highly recommended! Paul is an absolutely fantastic instructor. 

He is patient and professional and has been so kind and helpful throughout the whole process. I passed my practical driving test yesterday (first time - no minors) and I owe it all to Paul’s excellent teaching. 

Thank you Paul!"

Thank you Paul!


Learning to Drive can be hectic but, with a fun to teach instructor who makes it so easy and simple is Sayed from Feltham!!

No fuss guy highly recommend. Thanks mate, Chadley


He was incredibly calm and eased my nerves whilst also providing exceptional advice and lessons which has helped me past my test first time!!

Mark has provided me with the best possible experience whilst learning to drive.

I would recommend him to anyone wanting to start driving

Charlie Parrott

One of the best driving schools, worth the money.

Lynne is great


Passed my test with Steve today,

Couldn't recommend him enough. He made me feel so comfortable and has helped me get over my anxiety of driving. I am going to miss our weekly lessons and can't wait for my sister to learn with him!

He is accommodating and understanding and easy to talk to. Couldnt have done it without him!;


A huge thank you Mark for teaching me how to drive!!!
Friendly, professional, patient and so calm are just a few words I would use to describe you. Not only have you taught me some great driving techniques and tips (which I am now passing onto my family) but I have become a confident, experienced, safe driver thanks to you.
You were very flexible arranging lessons and always contactable which really helped as my time was split between Uni and home.

I am really looking forward to doing my Pass Plus with you.

Thank you so much for being such a great instructor!!!"


Graham is such a good instructor, very patient, understanding and very reassuring if you are a nervous driver


Graham is such a good instructor, very patient, understanding and very reassuring if you are a nervous driver


I highly recommend Shaun to any learners out there.

He is a patient and encouraging instructor, who truly cares about getting you through your test and to be a confident driver once you are on the road.


Mark Gaze was the best instructor that I could have asked for

! He was so patient and informative with his teaching and worked hard to help me build my confidence out on the road! Marks teaching was not only informative but also fun and I generally enjoyed learning to drive with mark! I can't thank him enough for helping me to pass first time!


I had Danny as my instructor and I couldn't of wished for a better driving instructor! He is so calm and patient and amazing for building confidence! 

Passing my test was bitter sweet as I'm really going to miss our lessons.


I am a super nervous driver but Lynne was amazing

I have finally passed, couldn't be happier and couldn't have done it without Lynne


Graham was amazing as my driving instructor.

I passed my driving test first time with him and he always made me feel comfortable and was very helpful especially when it came to slotting me in coming up to my test. 

I thoroughly recommend him!


I was lucky enough to earn the privilege of being taught to drive by Shaun. 

My confidence in driving escalated a massive amount and I am extremely grateful. The endless support and motivation he gave me,helped me to pass my test.

He had a lot of patience for me and I’m someone who gets anxious very quickly. I would highly recommend him to all of my friends who have yet to pass as well as people that I don’t know


Struggled to even find an instructor that could cater to my schedule before, but whether it was evenings or weekends he could always fit me in.

Can't rate him and the service he gives high enough.

Thanks again, Mark


It was a pleasure to learn to drive with Mark.

I cant thank Mark enough for having faith in me and teaching me one of lifes most important life lessons!

He put me at ease and made me feel so comfortable and able to believe in myself. It was a pleasure to learn to drive with Mark.

Thank you.

He put me at ease and made me feel so comfortable and able to believe in myself.

It was a pleasure to learn to drive with Mark. Thank you.


I passed my test first time today with Steve. He was the most understanding and patient teacher I could’ve asked for and I can’t stop recommending him to everyone I know! So grateful and I couldn’t have wished for anyone better:)


Enayet was amazing!

He really helped me develop as a safe driver and to assess my own level and where I needed to make changes. 

I couldn’t recommend him more! Thank you!!!


Donna is absolutely fabulous, she made my lessons relaxed and filled with laughter. I have grown so much in confidence couldn’t recommend Donna enough!


I couldn't have asked for a better instructor, thank you Chris.

I would and have recommended Chris to friends as he is a great instructor, keeps you calm and keeps you confident, just what you need to learn to drive. Thanks again Chris


Had lessons with Claire from August until now, she is an absolutely amazing teacher, really patient and really calm, would recommend to everyone!


I've been learning to drive with Josh since earlier this year and have found him to be a very good instructor that I would recommend to anyone.

He also advised me to book my test in Chichester as I had a long wait for my test in Portsmouth which got me my licence a lot sooner.
Thanks josh


If you want an excellent instructor who will enable you to progress rapidly and is flexible with time, then Mark is your guy

I recently passed my driving test with Mark Rowett as my instructor. He builds up your confidence very quickly and is very relaxed and easy to get on with. Oh, and he's got excellent taste in TV.

Dana K

Big thanks to Alex!

I've had bad experience with my previous instructor, so changed to Prime D.
Passed my test today morning from 1st attempt after 1 month of driving!!!11

Highly recommend! :)

Dana K.


Will be forever grateful and would recommend her and the rest of Prime Driving School to anyone.

Would like to say a massive thank you to Lynne who helped me get through both my theory and driving tests even after 18 months she was still committed to helping me get through them both.


Easily one of the best driving instructors around the Guildford area.

Before Mark I had a few other instructors and was finding it hard to progress but with Mark's calm and efficient approaches to teaching I was able to improve and past my test.

Would 100% recommend


Just passed my test with Daniel's help from Prime Driving School. Very patient with great approach and very professional. Got this noob (me) to pass with one minor within few months. Just Amazing. Recommend

Dan Underwood

Prime driving school was a great choice, because I got Martin as my instructor. I was so relaxed when having my lessons. And today I passed my test. All thanks to Martin.

I would recommend anyone who wishes to learn to drive and no doubt pass.

Martin's your man. Thanks again Martin.


Big Thank You to Mark Wise who helped me passed my test first time. Would highly recommend him to anybody who is looking for a patient driving instructor


Great company and my driving instructor Joshua puts you at ease and would recommend to anyone wanting to learn to drive


Graham has so much patience! Thank you for helping pass my driving test on my first attempt! Incredibly happy! 

Graham took the time to help me correct my mistakes and practice everything! Including the horrible parallel park! 😂 thanks again!


Deborah has done well in equipping me to pass my test on my first attempt under her instruction with only one driver fault.

She has me feeling very confident in my road safety. she's also kind and friendly which makes the experience enjoyable


Graham is a very good instructor.
He patiently corrected all my driving faults. He is very punctual and well organised person.
Thank you Graham for helping me to pass my driving test


I had the best driving Instructor Debra.

So lovely and patient with me and made me pass first time, even though I didn't believe in myself.

Thank you so much Debra. Make sure you guys book with her you won't regret it xx


Really enjoyed learning in Chichester/Selsey area with a great and patient driving instructor Steve. Would highly recommend.

Dr. Giulia Zampini

Rhys was really patient with me and definitely made me feel able to make progress despite my initial fears and struggles.

I had virtually zero driving experience when I started lessons with Rhys, and was quite self conscious of being an older and inexperienced learner (who really likes to talk and ask lots of questions).

Rhys quickly understood how to use my tendencies to my learning advantage, for instance by drawing diagrams that would explain mechanisms in theory and in detail before attempting the practice. Im an academic so this worked well for me.

As I began to trust him and his judgement further, I made more significant progress and I managed to pass my test first time. Thanks Rhys!

Dr Zampini


Josh is a great driving instructor, really makes you feel comfortable behind the wheel and confident with your own driving.

Would recommend to anyone, nervous or confident!

Efe Obiete

Jacqueline is LOVELY! She's the nicest, funniest driving instructor I've had, and she made me feel so comfortable.

I had no confidence and bad habits, however what was different with Jacqueline was that she didn't just tell me what my bad habits were, she took the effective measures and told me how to get rid of them

I had full confidence in driving and started driving really well. I was shocked that it took me only a couple of lessons to achieve this.

Honestly, she is the best driving instructor ever and it's because of her that I passed.


What I like most about my instructor is that she is focused on making me master the habits of a safe driver, rather than just pass my test.

Thanks Debbie


There will never be enough words to describe how fantastic Claire is!

I couldn't recommend her enough. She has helped me overcome boundaries that I never thought I could overcome. She is just awesome! Thank you Claire.


Before Prime, my driving experience knocked my confidence. After joining Prime, Jeremy quickly got that confidence back for me! He was amazing. Very patient and understanding. He made it feel like you were getting in the car with a friend and because of this, I passed first time. Would recommend to anyone


Thankyou to Mark for being an amazing teacher. I’ve had many Instructers in the past for a lot of years and never got no where. Mark understood how I learnt and understood with my dislexia. Mark was so calm and kind. His tips were great and always worked. Mark gave me the confidence and abilities at the beginning I was so nervous on my first day . He was really good at calming my nerves and making me feel capable. I passed first time says it all really mark has so many years of experience he’s brilliant. Thankyou mark for being such a brilliant teacher you have made my life so much easier and for that I’m truly greatful. I highly recommend 😁


Mark was a fantastic driving instructor, who helped me become more confident throughout each and every lesson.

I would highly recommend Mark at Prime for your lessons, hes easy going and makes you feel at ease when behind the wheel... I passed first time today with only 3 minors.


A big thank you to Paul D'Arcy who was instrumental in getting me to pass my test first time with no minors! He is both friendly, professional and patient.

Not only did he get me to pass my test, but installed good driving practice that I will have with me for the rest of my life. This is why I have already recommend him to friends.


Just passed my test first time thanks to Donna!

Donna is an amazing driving instructor, she made me feel comfortable and was very supportive. I am so happy that i’ve passed, but I will miss seeing and talking to Donna each week. Thanks so much Donna!

Ella Cook

Awesome fun lessons, thanks Lynne. I really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend Prime for anyone looking for a driving instructor.


Many thanks to Josh

I passed my driving test despite the stormy weather today! I would highly recommend him if you want to be a safe driver. P.S. Josh, I will definitely apply your tips in driving and Will maintain to the left.

Ellie Atkins

My first and only driving school, taught by an amazing driving instructor Lynne. Every lesson was professional & organised, and we still had giggles and chats, sometimes it was more like having your best friend in the car!

Excellent learner car that was easy to drive, smooth and responded to your instructions. Most importantly, clean and presentable.

Thank you Lynne for being an amazing instructor and giving me 100% confidence on the road.

Ellie Whittingham

My driving instructor was Andy and I cannot thank him enough! He is always so friendly and really made me feel calm when learning to drive.

He not only thoroughly prepared me for the practical test but also for all situations when driving on my own after my test. I would definitely recommend!


Shaun is a fantastic instructor who helped me to pass first time.

He was always encouraging and explained things clearly and in good detail. He tailored lessons to my progress, what I wanted to work on and the way I learnt and I always left the lessons feeling that I had progressed.

He is very flexible and was always willing to collect and drop me off from college if needed which was a lifesaver. I found it very easy to communicate and book lessons with him which is great if you are a busy student.

Emile Toledo

My recommendations go out to Mark! Him and his partner are very well organised and very accommodating. Mark himself is a kind and patient driver. Thanks for helping me pass and all the best to Mark and Paula.


One of the best decisions I have ever made was calling Jacquie for a lesson - I can't thank her enough. She is caring, lovely and friendly lady who was always smiling and the best instructor around.
After years of putting off driving due to nerves and horrible experiences with other instructors, I finally set myself a goal at the beginning of February that I would be driving before the end of April.
Jacqui did everything possible to make sure this happened and did it - I passed first time with 4 minors.
It was such a pleasure to have Jacquie as my driving instructor. She is a hard working person who puts in a lot of time and effort in the way she teaches with different learning strategies which made it easier for me to learn and grasp new techniques as well as building my confidence behind the wheel.
She made me feel really calm and I'd highly recommend her to anyone learning to drive, especially if you are a bit anxious or just need a little push to get going. I couldn't have passed my test without her.


Just passed my driving test after learning with Mark for around six months, couldn't have asked for a more patient and kind driving instructor really.

He always took the time to explain things and went out of his way to find a new way if I wasn't quite getting it! Will definitely go back if I need more lessons in the future, THANK YOU!!!


Mark helped so much with my confidence on the road. Great instructor very calm and encouraging.

I would highly recommend!!


What a brilliant driving school! 

Lynne is absolutely amazing, I completed a 5 day intensive course with her, and couldn’t have asked for a better driving instructor/ mentor! 

Passed first time on 6th day! Would definitely choose this school 100%, so accommodating! :)


I cannot recommend Paul highly enough. He was an excellent teacher, exacting but extremely patient, and made learning to drive fun-I am going to miss our lesson chats! Courtesy of the pandemic and having a baby, it took me a while to get to passing test stage, and I was a very nervous driver, but thanks to Paul I’m now very happy driving on my own with the baby.


Had the pleasure of being taught to drive by Mark from Prime Driving. He was professional, calm and put me at ease from the get go. I would highly recommend using Prime Driving!


Emily Barnet

Martin amazingly got me through my test! I would look forward to my driving lessons instead of dreading them. He stopped me being frightened and he was always very calm when I did scary things, making me feel safe. He is very kind and understanding but he is also positive and encouraging throughout the whole experience and I was by no means a natural! He is a brilliant teacher and I can recommend him!


I have just passed my driving test first time and I would like to say a massive thank you to Mark from Prime Driving School. He gave me some great advice, was patient with me and made sure I was fully ready for my test. 

Would highly recommend Mark and Prime Driving School 👍


Thank you Graham! Passed first time😁


Lynne you are a great teacher. 

I’ve achieved my goals to be an ADI only because of your extremely positive guidance and training.
I’ve been with another company but I was completely disappointed by their poor guidance .

Lynne your guidance and training on the road and also in the class room sessions made me understand how we have to teach our pupils and make them safe drivers for their whole life.
And this has made my dream come true.

I didn't have enough confidence, but your determination, advice, teaching style and guidance was what I needed  to point me in the right direction and finally I have achieved it.

Prime driving school is the Best.
I recommend PDI training with Prime for those who need the best training to become an ADI.  Contact Lynne who is the Best.


Great teacher passed first time.

Mark made me feel calm in the lessons and not rushed. I would recommend him strongly to anyone looking for a driving instructor.


Absolutely fab! I've been driving with Steve for the past 10 months and just passed my test today. Highly recommended and I haven't got a single bad thing to say about the driving school. Thank you Prime!


Fantastic teaching and clear communication from my instructor Claire. She helped me pass my driving test and made me at ease as I was taught so well. Would definitely recommend, such an amazing driving school and Claire was a lovely instructor!


Kirstan is a great instructor, teaching me everything in the easiest way possible and always being kind and understanding.


Amazing school.

Lynne is a great instructor!! I passed first time and I was prepared so well.

Finley Bacon

Chris is a fantastic instructor I passed my test first time within 5 months of first getting behind the wheel. I would eagerly reccomend him to anyone.


I really enjoyed my driving lessons with Mark. 

He put me at ease straight away with his relaxed and friendly manner. He corrected me on a couple of things that a previous instructor had taught me which weren’t quite right, and I got through my test first time. I definitely recommend him.

Francesca Elton

A BIG thank you to Andy!!! I have previously failed my driving test on MANY occasions and was thinking of giving up, yet when I started my lessons with Andy my nerves more than halved. He was such a huge help and gave me the confidence I needed!! Would recommend 100%!


Absolute pleasure to be taught by Mark from prime driving school, excellent delivery of skill and ability, in depth knowledge and experience.

Very affordable prices and availability, not to forget the outstanding welcoming and service delivered !

Gem Luker

I started learning with Rhys from Prime Driving School and couldn't recommend him enough!

He was amazing, really patient and great for getting you to the stages you need to be - he had a lot more faith in me than I did and I passed first time! Would definitely recommend for nervous drivers!

Gemma Barnes

My driving instructor was Maria! Absolutely fantastic and highly recommended.

After having a bad experience before I was a bit nervous but there was no need.

Maria you are a fantastic driving instructor. I could never have passed with anyone else.

Everyone is different and you teach everyone to there own abilities. I now have a new life ahead of me. Thank you sooo much.

George Ogunkeye

If youre given a man called Alex, just know youve passed.

A mate and I both started our lessons at the same time and we were both assigned to Alex. He was a great help and helped both of us pass first time. He quickly became a friend within the first couple of lessons.

George Rosson

I cannot recommend Prime Driving School enough! Excellent teaching and every lesson was a lot of fun. I wouldnt have been able to pass first time without it


Mike is a fantastic instructor, always gave helpful and constructive feedback and had confidence in my driving!

I cannot thank Prime Driving School enough for helping me pass my test first time!- Have already recommended him to family and friends and will continue to in the future!


So happy I changed to Prime.

Brilliant experience, learnt so much with Lynne. 100 percent teaching. Passed today. Thanks again Lynne your a star



I passed first time with Josh and in less than 2 months.

Josh is an Amazing instructor who made me feel comfortable and confident with every drive. He was also patient and encouraging throughout every lesson and I cannot recommend his services enough.


I would like to say a big thank you to everyone at prime driving school and especially Lynne.
I am now a qualified ADI!
Since joining prime almost 2 years ago nothing has ever been to much trouble with various lock downs etc they have always been there for me.
The prime team is like a family where everyone helps each other where they can, its great to be part of such a successful organisation.
Thanks once again.


I just passed my driving test first time after learning with Mark Gaze. 

Mark is a patient and calm teacher and generally a nice bloke! I was nervous about driving and his teaching style helped me gain confidence quickly. His approach is very methodical and he takes the time to explain things clearly and gives you time to absorb the information and apply it.

I highly recommend him!

Hannah Parker

Thanks to Lynne, I passed for the first time! My instructor was fantastic and tailored each lesson to what I needed to learn and improve on right up to the moments before the test. So pleased I have learnt such an important skill!!!


Have just passed 1st time with Mark! Only 3 minors. Booked an unknown area but Mark did all his research and we got there nice and early to get used to the area.

Was so nervous before but Mark was so confident in me that it put me right at ease. Lovely car too I must say! Thanks for all your help Mark.


Would highly recommend.

Thank you to both Mark and Paula for helping me through this experience.

And will definitely be contacting them in the near future for more driving experiences.


I have had Mark as a driving instructor for the past 7 weeks and I have just passed first time with only 3 minors.

Mark was unbelievably encouraging and really constructive in his suggestions. Progress was so fast that within 2 lessons my parents felt comfortable when I was driving them around (without dual control). Mark was always happy to fit in around school/college arrangements. The car is amazingly well kept and perfect for learning in. I can thoroughly recommend Mark as an instructor and have done so to many friends already!

Thanks Mark.


Shaun was a fantastic driving instructor.

I always looked forward to having a lesson with him and he was always seeking the best out of me. Shaun was patient and very knowledgeable and I never felt worried I was going to do something wrong. I passed first time all thanks to Shaun's teaching.


10/10 experience with Danny . Really helped me out a lot and got me through the test. Really grateful


very good experience with prime driving and my instructor danny, would 100% recommend… i don’t think i’d have passed anywhere near as soon if it wasn’t for him. Thank you 👌🏽


Paul was a very good instructor Made me very confident would definitely would recommend him makes lessons fun and teaches to drive. Safely

Hayley Wainwright

Couldnt recommend enough!!! Amazing!!! Andy is the best driving instructor EVER!! He made me feel comfortable on all my lessons, hes such a nice guy! I passed my theory 23rd jan and today I passed my test, all thanks to Andy!


I could not have done it without my instructor Shaun

I passed my driving today yippee I am over the moon . Shaun has been amazing so helpful, patient and has had full faith in me at all times. I felt totally relaxed and at ease with him. I Would highly recommend booking your lessons with him Thank you so much for all your support.


Thanks so much to Steve for helping me pass my test first time with only 2 minors!

Great instructor and great guy, cannot recommend enough. 10/10


Was very nervous to get a driving instructor but after the first lesson I couldnt wait to have my next lessons.

Mark made it very easy and helped build confidence. Great guy would recommend to anyone.


Passed first time with Mark
Was an absolute pleasure to drive with. He was an extremely effective teacher and I recommend him highly!


Just want to thank Steve for the amount of time and effort he has put in over the past weeks in ensuring that I am at a test standard.

Booking a last minute cancellation in Chichester and doing a solid 2 hour preparation before the test, I can happily say that I passed with no driver faults. Steve’s guidance, patients, and overall teaching has been fantastic and I owe a lot of my success today to him.

10/10 would recommend.


Brilliant driving lessons from Daniel. Really patient and helpful during lessons, very knowledgeable teacher with lots to share. With his help I passed first times with only a few faults.


I passed my test today with no errors!
Couldn’t of done it without Shaun!

He was amazing with me throughout. He’s so easy to get along with and always there for support and guidance.
I really appreciate how comfortable and confident he has made me as a driver.

I was so nervous when I started and I had really bad anxiety to start driving. He takes that extra time and and detail with you, to goes through everything so you feel 100% confident.
(Even doing an hour of reverse parking because I was just not happy with it)😂.
I would definitely recommend Shaun for anyone who is nervous to start driving.


Amazing instructor, passed first time!


Passed my test first time with the help of amazing Donna. She's always so calm and reassuring and just a wonderful teacher. So so happy and thankful.

Holly Manganoni

Lynne is an excellent instructor. She was always patient and made sure everything was explained clearly. Would highly recommend

Ida Hollis

I learnt with Martin and he is a fantastic teacher! I had low confidence in myself before starting lessons with him and he really turned that all around. He's patient, understanding and he made the lessons really fun too. Thank you so much Martin! I'll be recommending you to everyone!


Absolutely loved my instructor - she remained calm and provided consistent support and extremely detailed instructions making the lessons enjoyable and incredibly helpful. Completely recommended !! Thank you for everything !


Learning with Prime Driving School was easy and I passed first time.

I had a great instructor called Steve

Imogen Jack

I had 4 lessons with Steve, who was punctual, assertive yet kind and a pleasure to be taught by. I passed first time with 4 minors and I couldn't have done it without him. I would highly recommend this company due to their consistently perfect customer service and fair prices. Thank you Prime!


"Amazing driving school.

I have recommended this school to many of my friends and family. They help you stay calm even in the most intense situations. Highly recommend!!!"


Chris helped me pass in 5 months! I didn't think I'd enjoy driving but every lesson was fun and I always looked forward to them. I thoroughly recommend Chris, especially to nervous drivers because he's patient and puts you at ease. Thanks Chris!


Was such a pleasant experience learning to drive with Claire. Made me so much more confident within myself as well as driving and made me pass my test first time! Would definitely recommend


Would recommend to any one.

I failed my test with another driving school, then I went to Josh and passed. Brilliant instructor.

Thanks Josh"


Passed first time with bags of confidence! Couldn’t of thanked Enayet more!
Thank you so much!


Really fantastic experience learning to drive with Danny from Prime, he was very helpful and patient and I couldn't have passed first time without his help!


I passed first time with 0 faults on my test and I give many thanks to Mark and his exceptional and professional teaching.

Was an amazing and friendly instructor with brilliant patience which was a massive help when learning. I never had a negative experience with him or his teaching and made me feel relaxed and confident when driving.

Jacquie Taylor Grey

Lynne trained me as a Driving Instructor 13 years ago! And to the highest standard.

Lynne is so professional and still after 13 years if I need an answer to any question I still go to her!
I am now a qualified Ordit Registered Trainer and again thanks all goes to Lynne. She is amazing and has invaluable knowledge. Yes I couldn't be where I am today running a training department without her. Thank you. Lynne genuinely changed my life and my career and I could not be happier.


Thankyou Mark Gaze!
Mark is a brilliant instructor, he made my learning experience so easy. I felt completely at ease and comfortable from my first lesson through to my test. Which I managed to pass first time!
Thank you for your patience and guidance throughout it was outstanding.
I'd highly recommend using Prime Driving School!


I had donna from prime driving , she was very patient and professional, would definitely recommend


Mark is a fantastic driving instructor.

Would thoroughly recommend to anyone. He has a cool, calm and collected persona which gives you confidence as a driver, and has provided me with a set of skills for a lifetime. Anyone looking for a driving instructor should have Mark, he is a great teacher!


By far the best of the two instructors I've had. Mark made me feel very confident with driving and had some good life lessons too.

Will be recommending to everyone I know :-)


I took my driving lessons with Mark and I’m so pleased I did. He was very patient, explained things clearly, and helped me build my confidence on the roads.

Because of this, I managed to pass first time. Thanks Mark!


I had a great start with Prime Driving school who were initially able to provide local lessons in a much shorter timeframe than other schools in the area.

In particular I’ve had an incredibly positive experience with my instructor David Wyatt, who has made learning to drive a pleasure - to the extent that my passing was a bittersweet moment.

I cannot recommend him enough - we were able to work through the syllabus at my own pace, the emphasis being on building confidence and a thorough understanding of each module - not rushing to tick boxes.

David is someone who takes a great deal of pride in his profession and is genuinely passionate about teaching others. This shines through in his approach, attention to detail, and vicarious enjoyment of progress.

Thanks to his teaching style, diligence, reassurance and encouragement, I passed my practical test on my first attempt. A massive thanks to you.

(He’s also a really good bloke!)


My instructor Andy had seemingly endless patience. His constant calm demeanour gave me the confidence to pass my test (even though, to begin with, I was terrified of the prospect of driving!).

Would absolutely recommend!


An amazing driving instructor

Passed 1st time with a clean sheet!!

Can't rate Mark highly enough... will recommend to anyone who asks for a driving instructor.

Thank you so much Mark!!!


Enayet was a fantastic driving instructor and helped me pass first time!! 😀 Always willing to help and helped me feel like I could do it!!


Amazing teacher

I learnt to drive safely would most certainly recommend to friends and strangers alike. Josh also makes the lesson plans to suit your needs. Thanks very much Josh and all the best to you as a great driving instructor.


Mark has everything you would ever want for from a driving instructor.

He listened and he understood. Patient, calm and persistent, perseveres until you get it. Very good at explaining concepts and clarifying hazy areas.

I was a bit of a lost cause when it came to driving. I stopped about 20 years ago after a bad experience and after a few failed attempts to get back into it, I gave up all together. At some point I realised I had to get my act together as school runs can't wait and I can't rely on others for help forever.

I drive my kids to school now and do all my chores all by myself.

I can only marvel at how on earth he managed to instil confidence in someone like me. I am deeply grateful.


Delighted to have passed - first time! Thanks to Steve Wiggins, I've learned skills for life - not just for passing the test.


I passed today by the help Mr. Enayet. I have learned a lot from him. Very efficient driving instructor.


Thanks for all your great help Mark! 100% would recommend!

I took driving lessons with Mark at Prime Driving School and honestly had an amazing experience.
Mark was kind, patient and friendly. 

He always made me feel comfortable in the car which made my driving experience that much better! I also passed my test with them today and couldn’t be happier! 


Thank you for everything

You have been an amazing teacher!

Couldn't have asked for a better person to teach me to drive.

Thanks for all the help and guidance


I was a very nervous driver and with Mark's help I have become a confident driver.

He made me feel comfortable in lesson to be able to help me in the best way. He is one of the best instructors and he deserves more than a 5 star rating.

Jessica White

Fantastic ! Lynne is amazing

! Being a nervous person I was looking for someone who would be calm and supportive whilst driving and Lynne did that and more wouldn't recommend anyone better!

Thank you Lynne so much !


I switched driving instructors and started learning with Josh.

I was able to pass my test with Josh in Chichester, he made me feel so at ease, he also put me into real life driving situations. I would definitely recommend learning to drive with him and Prime!


Thank you very much to Mark in helping me pass first time.

Can't fault him in any way.
I Had a few lessons with other companies

Prime Driving School is by far the best I used and if all their instructors are like Mark you'll be fine and have a great experience with them.
Thank you again.


Amazing teacher and very flexible, makes learning to drive very fun and not feel so daunting


Danny was my driving instructor and was absolutely brilliant. Made me feel really safe.


Chris is a fantastic instructor ..

..and was so supportive the entire way.

Words can't say how grateful I am!"


Kirstan gave me only 3 lessons, all these lessons were very informative, helpful, and understanding to give me a pass , with zero minors.


Mark is a patient calm thorough driving instructor.

This gave me the confidence to pass my test. I will and have recommended Mark to any of my friends.


Would highly recommend 10/10

Thanks to Steve for helping me pass first time.

Very helpful with learning everything needed for the test. 


Can't imagine having a better instructor to learn with.

I can highly recommend learning with Mark

Always calm and patient but most importantly makes you feel extremely comfortable from the very first lesson.

With a good instructor comes quick progression when it comes to driving, so I can highly recommend learning with Mark. Passed with only 1 minor and so could you. Sad the lessons are over!


I passed my driving test first time yesterday. Daniel was an amazing instructor who was really supportive and helped me every step of the way.


I had a bit of driving experience before starting with Jeremy at Prime Driving School, but I wasn’t the most confident driver Jeremy was amazing in every way with building up my confidence and making sure I was ready for my test.

Jeremy was very welcoming from the start which really helped. In the lessons you get to chose how much of the lesson you want to do on your own and how much you want help with things which made it perfect for learning and being more confident in myself as a driver.

I fully recommend prime driving school and Jeremy being the perfect driving instructor for anyone.

Josh Humphrey

Couldn't have asked for a better instructor than Steve! He was always on time and was willing to either pick me up from or drop me off at home even though I live rurally a way out of town. He was patient and supportive and I felt like I was making progress towards my test in every lesson with him, so he was well worth the money! I would definitely recommend Prime and especially Steve to anyone looking to learn to drive.

Josh Lednor

Highly Recommend!

Mark is a excellent instructor, and I thoroughly enjoyed my time with him, as he helped me to pass my test first time.

Josh's mum

My son has passed his driving test with Mark at Prime Driving School.

A brilliant, friendly, punctual, reliable, knowledgeable and supportive service. I am so happy and thankful that we had Mark as his instructor.


I would highly recommend Prime Driving School!

I have just passed my driving test first time, all thanks to Lynne and Mark! They were incredibly patient with me and they encouraged confidence as my driving skills progressed.


Jeremy was really helpful while teaching me to drive being patient when I got things wrong and rewarding me when I got things right, he was very chilled out and if I ever needed an answer for something he was just an ask away. 

Really nice all round guy 10/10


I had the pleasure of having Mark as my driving instructor, he was super patient and calming from the very first lesson. 

He helped my confidence grow after just 25 hours of lessons. I cannot recommend him enough and I am so grateful to him for getting me that 1st time pass 🙏


"I've had the best experience learning to drive with Lynne,

So calming and had the best chats!

Without Lynne, I wouldn't have been able to pass first time."


Enayet was my instructor, he is extremely professional, knowledgeable, strongly recommend!!! Very punctual, also … very accommodating. I enjoyed my learning under him and passed!’


Yesterday I passed my test 1st time I could not believe is Daniel from prime driving has been so amazing I’m not the Easiest person to teach and learn new things but he really went Above & Beyond for me he’s so professional and kind and caring I’m so glad I got to experience this journey with him and I’m so grateful for the new life he’s helped me get Thankyou Daniel your a credit to prime driving all the best karren


Lovely area to learn, they have a bit of everything to practice. Learned all I could in a couple of months, instructor covered all bases and I passed first try :) Thanks


I enjoyed learning to drive with Mark. I found him easy to get along with.

Mark provides a comfortable learning environment and helps you feel at ease.

Thanks for all your help in passing


A really great instructor.

A huge thank you to Steve who helped me pass my test today!

Would strongly recommend to anyone, easy to get along with and supportive.

Katie Ellis

Prime Driving School is amazing! My instructor Lynne was so calm which really helped my nerves. I was able to pass first time with only 5 months of lessons! The teaching is impeccable and I can't recommend Prime Driving School enough!


Mark helped me pass my test a couple weeks ago, I've felt confident on the roads since then!

He was really patient with me which I appreciate since I was quite nervous. I know that I was taught how to drive the safest way and I'm really grateful for that.

Definitely would recommend him for anyone learning, or anyone who needs advanced driving assistance!! Thanks again Mark :)

Ken Lam

Chris is a brilliant driving instructor.

I've passed my licence within two month of time. Chris has a nice sense of humour, his teaching is perfect. He always give's me directions to drive safety and smooth on road. I always learn a lot and improve in his lesson. I always look forward to the next lesson.

As I am from Hong Kong, he always pay extra care and explain in things that I don't know or confuse on. Chris always tells me don't learn only for the test, learn how to drive safety with confidence.

I recommend Chris to everyone even overseas students.


Kirstan is the most amazing driving instructor, she is so patient and has helped me build my confidence on the road massively! ❤️


Makes you feel relaxed and confident!

Friendly and professional will be recommending him to all friends and family :)


Josh is an excellent instructor who made me feel relaxed from the beginning.

I started lessons earlier this year, having had a number of years off after starting with a different instructor. Hes a patient and encouraging teacher and I quickly found myself enjoying driving. He made me feel confident for the test which I passed in Chichester. Couldnt recommend highly enough!


Shaun is a great instructor. He was patient, encouraging and very knowledgeable.

Communication was great, especially when arranging lessons. Would definitely recommend Shaun and Prime.


Just passed thanks to my instructor Danny he helped me gain confidence in my driving and helped me pass


The best driving instructor in the Surrey area.
I had a couple instructors before Mark but I can honestly say I wouldn't have passed without him.
The calm, trusting nature of Mark makes it so easy to learn and become a better driver. 100% would recommend to anyone who is looking for a brilliant instructor!!


Claire Sheppard, the best excellent instructor I ever had

I passed my test today 😊 Thank you so much for all your help ; Excellent in all the aspects Professional work. Big Thank you 🙏


Such an amazing instructor. Definitely recommend him to anyone trying to pass their test!

Just passed my driving test with Shaun from Prime Driving School and I couldn’t thank him enough!


Amazing, patient and always makes things easy.

Very understanding and was always on-time if not early and ready to go! He fills you with so much confidence it makes the entire process go smoothly!
Thoroughly enjoyed learning with Alex at Prime."

Lee Roberts


Steve is an amazing instructor, patient and always replies to texts and calls. He refused to give up when I did, today I have passed my test and can now drive.

Steve thank you so much. I would recommend prime driving school to anyone who wants to learn to drive.


I would definitely recommend Mark to anyone.

Very helpful and calm, uses easy and understandable instructions to teach any manoeuvre. I passed today first time


Mark is a brilliant driving instructor

I passed 1st time today and he was the one to put me through it with hard work, a great teacher.

I would highly recommend Mark Wise for anyone because I believe he could help anyone pass their test
Thanks Mark


Best driving instructor out there by far.

Can't fault him, made me feel at ease all the time. Passed first time and enjoyed every minute of the teaching. Keep up the solid work mate! Legend.


I have now passed thanks to Mark.

He was an incredible instructor and he got me through and nailed every part of driving with me!

It was an absolute pleasure to learn with him and I’m so happy I did. Fantastic instructor! Thank you Mark!!!


Thanks to Josh's patients and great knowledge of driving I was able to pass my test comfortably and confidently.

Originally thinking I was going to need to do an intensive course as I hadn't had a lesson in over 2 years, Josh assessed my driving on our first lesson and was honest with what I would need to do going forward. I didn't need to take an intensive course which saved me money and I passed first go 4 weeks later!

Highly recommend Josh to anyone looking for a reliable, friendly driving instructor.


Mark was a brilliant instructor to me, leaving no stone unturned - nothing was left to chance and he taught me absolutely every aspect of driving which allowed me to confidently approach my test and pass first try. 

Would strongly recommend to anybody who would like to pass their driving test.


Daniel was very patient and helped me pass first time!


Daniel is a amazing driving instructor helped me to pass first time


I’ve had a a few driving instructors before Steve and none were as calm or supportive as he had been. He really facilitated all the lessons around what I felt I needed to work on. Eventually I passed and I can’t thank Steve enough! Absolute legend.

Lucas Barker

Highly recommended driving school.
