Testimonial

"Philip of Dolmen School of Motoring gave me my 12 EDT lessons. Although I was able to drive he showed me how drive more safely, he is an excellent instructor, who takes great care and pride in what he does. He has a wonderful ability to give instruction in a clear and uncomplicated manner. He made driving stress free, with his help I passed my test first time. Many thanks Philip. "

I was a particularly anxious learner driver, absolutely terrified of being out on the open road and feeling quite overwhelmed at having to control  a car.
I found Philip of Dolmen School of Motoring a very easy going, patient, enthusiastic and encouraging instructor who took my fears seriously and helped me overcome them
I now have my full driver's license and am driving the past 3.5 years. I would highly recommend Dolmen School of Motoring.

I passed my driving test after a long few months of pre--tests and studying. Thanks to my Driving Instructor, Philip; your help and encouragement was amazing. I could never have done it without you. It took many lessons but in the end I passed first time with only 4 minor mistakes, happy days! I felt at ease and relaxed, my confidence grew and I started enjoying my driving lessons.  I've made a friend for life.

Phil- Just wanted to say a huge thank you for teaching me how to drive over the last few months. From day one it was absolute pleasure to be taught by Phil and never felt like a burden. I looked forward to every lesson and Phil managed to make learning to drive a thoroughly enjoyable experience, most importantly I gained a huge amount of confidence on the road and led to becoming a much better driver and ultimately passing my driving test.  Phil went above and beyond to help me with driving and I couldn't recommend him highly enough to anyone. Many thanks
