Achieved my goal
I had my first driving lesson 42 years ago and had lessons on and off, but never took a test. I hadn’t had a lesson for over 20 years when I found Paul’s website and decided to go for it! Best decision I have ever made. He is a very calm, reassuring instructor who inspires confidence – something that I was severely lacking. His instruction is clear and he goes at a pace that suits you. He made me feel at ease and never made me feel uncomfortable or useless, even though my skills were severely lacking at times. He always saw the positive side! I would recommend him to anyone who is considering learning to drive. He got me through – no one else has managed that! Thank You Paul.
Passed 1st Time
Passed 1st time with Paul and I really enjoyed my lessons with Paul. He is always punctual and never lets you down, he was approachable and calm every lesson. I would recommend Paul to anyone wanting to learn to drive, cheers Paul.
Passed with 0 driver faults. I highly recommend Paul for quality driving lessons. Paul isn't just bothered about getting you through the test, he teaches you how to drive properly so you are well prepared for driving after the practical test. Paul is very professional but can still have a laugh which helps put you at ease. He supports you when required, and doesn't get frustrated with you when you make mistakes. This helps boost your confidence. I had weekly lessons which allowed me to progress efficiently. Fully recommend Paul to anyone looking to learn to drive properly.

My lessons with Paul were always nice and relaxed, he is easy to get along with and has patience with you which really helps. But he knows when to push you that little be further to help you achieve more. He helped me pass first time and in under 2 months, I would defiantly recommend him to anyone.

Passed 1st Time
Having started and stopped driving lessons several times since the age of 17, I finally managed to pass my test first time with Paul's help. I had always been a nervous driver, and with encouragement from Paul this gradually lessened. He has an incredible amount of patience, but also knows when to give the right push! I would highly recommend Paul as an instructor and I know I will now be a calm and confident driver! I can now drive to see my family whenever I please which has given me so much freedom!

I have really enjoyed my driving lessons with Paul. He was very patient and thorough, however he did not waste time during our lessons. I found each one really beneficial and felt I was progressing through his teaching. Both my siblings and I all passed first time, therefore I would highly recommend Paul.
1st Time Pass
After successfully passing my driving test first time with Paul I really enjoyed the fact that if I made mistakes on my lessons with him, he reassured me and gave me the confidence to continue and progress further. The areas I found hard on my lessons were to obtain the bite of the vehicle and bay parking, but again having Paul by Mysore each week, he gave me the courage and support to overcome these fears. Seeing me through my time as a learner driver, Paul has always motivated me, no task was too big for him to sort out. I would thoroughly recommend him to anyone thinking of learning to drive. I couldn’t have done it without him. Thank You for everything Paul.😀
Passed 1st Time
To start with, I’d like to say how much of an excellent driving instructor Paul was. My previous experience with another local driving instructor left me unhappy and unsure on driving lessons. But after getting back behind the wheel with Paul, my confidence and interest in driving came back. Even though throughout my driving lessons I had intentions of giving up and also a negative mind set, Paul managed to pick me back up in my times of self doubt. His interpersonal skills were next to none and I managed to form a very close student to mentor bond with Paul that helped me seven fold. Paul is an excellent teacher with the Patience of a saint. Cheers for putting up with me Paul! 😊 Connor.
Passed 1st Time
I’ve really enjoyed my lessons with Paul. The lessons where relaxed, but I came away feeling more confident after each lesson. I felt ready when it came to my test and passed 1st with only 1 minor. Thanks Paul I’ll definitely recommend you.

Paul is a great driving instructor he made me feel comfortable in and around a car. Made things clear when I was unsure and has the patience to recap anything. This helped me pass my test 1st time with 0 faults. I will certainly be recommending Paul to anyone I know that is looking for a driving instructor. Thanks again Paul.
I highly recommend lessons with Paul and I feel that from my lessons he didn’t just teach me to pass the test, he taught me to become a safe driver and feel comfortable driving my car by myself once I passed. During lessons he didn’t waste time and every lesson was useful and enjoyable. His teaching method was good and he made sure I understood everything and was very flexible with fitting lessons in with my busy schedule.
Passed 1st time.

I learnt to drive with Paul. He was a great instructor, he made me feel at ease from day 1. He was very patient and taught things in a way that was very easy to understand and grasp. He was very easy to talk to and I never was once stuck for conversation. I went from being scared to learn to drive, to feeling confident in myself and my abilities. He explains things very clearly without jargon or babbling. I would definitely recommend Paul to anyone wanting to learn to drive.

I loved my driving lessons with Paul. I had very little confidence in my driving at the start but his positivity and patience helped me pass with 0 minors! Paul's attitude is always constructive and professional and he will never let you end a lesson feeling bad about your driving skills. You can tell he really enjoys being an instructor and seeing his pupils pass. I would recommend Paul to anyone (and already have done!) Thank you for everything!

span style="-webkit-tap-highlight-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0);">Paul is a fantastic driving instructor who really builds up your confidence. Each lesson I came out feeling I had made progress and my confidence grew each time. After taking tests with another instructor in a big city a few years ago, I was feeling like I would never pass. However Paul's teaching style was very thorough and positive and I passed on my first attempt with Paul. I would thoroughly recommend Paul as a driving instructor to anyone.
Paul provides good and productive lessons that are beneficial and helpful. He's friendly and easy to get along with and a great instructor. If you want to learn to drive I would recommend Paul.

Matt Chapman - Thornton Le Dale
Paul is a Very professional driving instructor, also has an effective teaching style which doesn't leave the students on edge. Helps to keep you concentrated and doesn't make you get stressed when you do something wrong. Fantastic instructor I would recommend him.
Tyler Gaines - Allerston
Driving lessons with Paul were highly informative and were a great help when it came to knowing what was required for the test. I feel it would have taken me rather longer to pass the test, had I not had assertive encouragement from Paul. I would highly recommend him as an instructor for those who want varied and fun lessons.

James Rule - Thornton Le Dale
First Time Pass
I passed first time with 0 minors which I was obviously delighted about. I had never driven a car before my first lesson with Paul. The first lesson was ideal for me as we just started by moving off and stopping in the car park. From then the lessons increased in difficulty which I found excellent and I improved very quickly since I had never driven before. If ever I made a mistake Paul was always very relaxed and calm about it which meant I was very relaxed and meant I just carried on and didn't worry about the mistake. I found this the best part about my lessons as before I started I was scared of making mistakes but Paul was very relaxed and often shared a joke afterwards about it which was ideal for me. Paul was the perfect instructor for me and I would definitely recommend him.

I passed 1st time and would highly recommend Paul to anyone who is wanting to learn to drive. He guided me through my lessons extremely well without wasting time on the areas of my driving I picked up quickly, however when I struggled he was very patient with me. Paul and I always had a laugh on my lessons and I thoroughly enjoyed having him as my driving instructor.

I passed 1st time learning with Paul, he had extreme patience! Each lesson you'd learn something new! I found driving with Paul really enjoyable and would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to learn to drive.
Adam Horvath - Kirkbymoorside
Paul has been incredible in helping me get from two wheels to four, his approach on every lesson was fantastic, he kept me at a level where I was constantly challenged, pushing me onwards into becoming a safer driver, his way of teaching enabled me to progress in ways I couldn't of imagined, through all my bad habits of looking over the bonnet to see my position on the road to underestimating gaps (all from using a scooter as my main form of transport), I'm now able to get out in a car safely and actually be dry for a change.
Me and my little family thank you, its been an absolute pleasure learning how to drive from you and I can now continue to learn as I drive on the roads independently, keeping all the safety aspects you taught me to take my family to places new!
George Jackson - Nawton
The lessons that I had with Paul were always enjoyable. He would always go back over anything that I wasn’t sure about and he would always try to get me to a stage where I felt confident with everything. He also didn’t waste time during the lessons which meant that I could pass quickly first time and also feel able to drive alone after the test. I would recommend Paul to anyone wanting to learn to drive.
Jo Keogh - Pickering
Passed 1st time
Paul is an amazing driving instructor and I would highly recommend learning to drive with him. From the very first lesson he put me at ease, giving me just enough of a challenge to make sure I was progressing; without overloading me or leaving me with a negative experience. Paul teaches you the skills you need to drive day-to-day, not just how to pass your test - it must have worked because I passed first time! Thanks Paul.
Joe Dunnett - Allerston
Would recommend Paul to anyone! He was brilliant to have as he made lessons enjoyable, but he was also very flexible with times and was able to fit my lessons around my full time football training! He also worked with me to get myself passed first time, with no faults and in just over a month! Genuinely cannot thank him enough! Great guy and a quality driving instructor! Thanks Paul!
Daniel Berseford - Malton
The best driving instructor I could ask for, great approach he knew when to push me and when not too. I felt he was more of a mate who helped my confidence grow and now I love driving. Thank you again.
Izzi Dwyer - Oswaldkirk
I have thoroughly enjoyed my driving lessons with Paul, l found them useful every time. I never found anything too easy as Paul would try and get perfection from everything, this made sure I passed my test first time. As well as being a very good instructor Paul is amicable and funny. I would recommend Paul to anyone wanting to learn to drive.
Catherine Ball - Sinnington
My lessons with Paul were enjoyable and very helpful. I was guided through the manoeuvres clearly, meaning it was easy to understand and learn from any mistakes. I managed to build up my confidence in driving and by the time it came to my test I felt prepared and ready. Overall Paul's lessons have not just helped me pass my test first time with only 1 minor but also helped me become a confident driver in any situation. I have already recommended Paul to my friend who also passed her test first time with Paul.
Ceri Owen - Thornton Le Dale
I found Paul's lessons enjoyable, he was always patient and explained things clearly. Every lesson I felt I'd learnt something new and made progress. I would highly recommend learning to drive with him.
John Westgarth - Pickering
Once again Paul thank you, Paul's experience ensured that I had the best preparation for my test. As someone who had driven before and not had the best of confidence before, Paul ensured that this was not the case before my test through running varied and appropriately challenging lessons. I really did enjoy my driving experience with Paul and actually looked forward to the lessons. I would definitely recommended Paul to anyone wanting to learn to drive.
Becky Hainsworth - Pickering

Casey Davis - Thornton Le Dale
Paul is an incredible instructor and provides lessons that are both educational and enjoyable. Not only does Paul teach what is necessary to pass the test, he also gives his students the knowledge necessary to succeed in driving long after the test is complete. I would highly recommend Paul as thanks to him I was able to pass my test first time.
Lizzy Warden - Helmsley
With Paul's excellent guidance, I managed to pass my test first time. His teaching goes above and beyond the call of duty, raising his students to a standard above simply passing the driving test. Ensuring his students possess a depth of knowledge and safety to rely on, even after they've passed. Thank you Paul.
Christian Burnett - Malton
Paul really adapts the lessons to suit the needs of his students he will stop and tell you where you have gone wrong and how you can improve. I would highly recommend Paul he gave me great confidence and his lessons where fun and rewarding.(I'll never forget the wheelie bins).
Nikki Long - Malton
Paul is a very friendly and patient instructor. I found when things went wrong, he would reassure me which I found very helpful, as I tended to panic while driving. Learning with Paul helped me gain the confidence and self belief I needed to pass my driving test first time. His lessons are centred entirely around you as an individual, allowing you to go at a pace you feel comfortable, although he will push when necessary to allow you to reach your full diving potential. I would recommend Paul to anyone wanting to learn to drive.
Abigail Learoyd - Norton
I took the semi intensive course with Paul which gave me multiple lessons a week helping me remember manoeuvres easier. In addition to the 30 hours the semi intensive course includes a driving workbook describing in depth every manoeuvre. I used the workbook before and after lessons to further my understanding. I would recommended Paul to other learner drivers as the lessons are productive and reflect you individually through working on the aspects your less confident with.
Imogen Hackett - Hutton Le Hole
I would definitely recommend Paul to anyone learning to drive. All of the lessons were productive and he was a very friendly and encouraging instructor who has made me a confident driver. His teaching was very thorough and I felt really prepared for my test. A great driving instructor!
Chloe Teasdale - Thornton Le Dale
Paul is a brilliant driving instructor as he is very friendly and patient. He gave me the confidence I needed to pass my test and felt I could ask him about anything I was unsure of. I would highly recommend Paul to anyone who wants to learn to drive. Thanks for everything Paul!
Katharine Warden - Helmsley
Paul was a really patient driving instructor, and was really encouraging any time I had a bad day and got frustrated with myself. He's very accommodating with lesson times, and also has high standards which he ensures you have reached by test day, meaning that when you pass you will already be a safer driver than many others. I would highly recommend Paul, and my sister is learning to drive with him already!
Suzie Hewitt - Nawton Beadlam
As a learner driver I was incredibly nervous both in a car and around other cars on the road. Paul was very patient with me and tried not to push me too far to dent my confidence whilst still making progress. He made me feel safe and I knew I could trust him when I was learning new things. We thought up a plan of regular and often lessons to suit me with the times and days of my choice. I was always provided with a good summary of how the lesson went, what went well, areas that I needed to improve and what to practice for next time which for me worked really well. I went from that scared learner driver who jumped at every car to a confident and competent 'first time pass' driver in two months.
Kati Riley - Kirkbymoorside
Hi all who are thinking about learning to drive, my name is Kati I am a headstrong and stubborn women and I been learning to drive with Paul. Paul has been extremely patient with me and quickly taught me the basics of driving. He has stood by me through my lack of confidence and my bad days when the lesson didn't seem to sink in. I highly recommend Paul to anyone, especially if you need someone who keep you focused and guide you in the right direction. Thanks for everything Paul.
Lucy Braithwaite - Malton
I found Paul to be very patient. He helped when I needed him to but pushed me enough in order to walk away from my lessons feeling like I achieved something. If we found something I couldn't do, he encouraged me that I can. I thoroughly enjoyed the lessons as he catered them to what I individually needed to improve on and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a good instructor.
Charlotte Hornby - Pickering
Paul is a very professional and friendly driving instructor. He is always on time for lessons and is enthusiastic about driving, making him the perfect choice of instructor for a nervous teenager learning to drive. He also makes lessons enjoyable but is also keen to tell you how to improve to get the best results on test day. I would definitely recommend him!!
Dan Chapman - Thornton Le Dale
Great service from Paul nothing was ever too much trouble, he helped me pass first time with his quick and reliable approach cheers Paul.
Stephanie Seaman - Kirkbymoorside
I've had a great experience learning to drive with Paul, I've developed so many great skills, I started of not knowing how to even turn an engine on and in no time I've passed my test. Paul is a very polite helpful person and makes you feel comfortable. I will defiantly pass on your number to anyone I know who wants to learn how to drive, (I passed with no faults) brilliant instructor!
Paul Puddephatt - Kirkbymoorside
I like to thank you Paul for getting me to pass my test, you were a big help to me and I will pass your number to my mate's thank you again.

Dan Edwards - Kirkbymoorside
Paul is a brilliant instructor, very friendly and always pushing you in the right direction by finding ways you can improve and become a better driver in the end, if you made a mistake he was very patient and reassuring. Lessons were productive, and tailored in a way that no matter how fast you learn you would always be learning something new or be polishing up on skills that had already been learned and were always fun. I would definitely recommend Paul to anyone looking for a good instructor.
Josh Toes - Thornton Le Dale
I really enjoyed my driving lessons with Paul, he is a brilliant teacher and he is patient with you. He is easy to get along with and he has a good sense of hummer. Paul is very reasonable as I experienced because I had to change the day/time of my driving lessons most weeks due to being at work but as long as I gave Paul enough notice of the change he would always try his best to work around it. Paul gives good advice on the lessons on how to improve your driving to make you an overall safer driver and to help you pass your test. I would defiantly recommend Paul to anyone that wants to learn to drive.
Kirsty Brown - Pickering
I found that Paul was an excellent instructor who pushed me when I needed it giving me confidence that I could succeed at every aspect needed for the test. He was patient and structured the lessons as to what he felt I needed to practice and kept me motivated throughout. I would definately recommend him.
Helen Britton - Pickering
Having already learnt with 2 instructors previously, I found Paul was friendly and supportive and really helpful in getting me to test standard in a short space of time. The LD workbook was great to back up the practical skills learnt in my lessons; it was especially useful for recapping the manoeuvres. Now that I have passed my driving test and feel confident in my driving abilities and can't wait to get my first car. I would recommend Paul to anyone wanting to learn to drive.
Bronwen Owen - Thornton Le Dale
I found Paul friendly and patient so I was relaxed and was able to enjoy the lessons, I also felt I could ask him if I needed something explaining further. Paul ensured I worked on the areas I needed to improve before my driving test to sure I was fully prepared.

I passed 1st time and thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with Paul, found him to be patient and understanding and would highly recommend him.
