‘To whom it may concern,
Reg was my Instructor and I am taking this opportunity to write a review on him and his services. As an experienced driver, I had to retake my full licence when I moved to London from America and learn to drive on the left side of the road on the tiniest streets.
Reg was a wonderful Instructor, he made me feel comfortable at all times,gave me simple and great advice for me to nail a manoeuvre the first time. Reg was always on time and even early for all our lessons together and his smile and positive attitude put me at ease. His car was clean and smelt nice,he refrained from taking calls or being distracted in any way.
I passed my driving test the first time I took it and I am grateful to Reg because I know I could not have done it without him. I was well prepared and confident when I arrived at the test centre.
I am so grateful for all the time he spent and shifting his schedule around to accommodate me especially on Sundays.
I highly recommend him to anyone wishing to have a stress-free professional Instructor.
Thank you so very much! See you on the road’.

Maria was my instructor and she is an amazing instructor. She did a phenomenal job in helping me receive my license. I appreciate her continuous support and patience throughout the journey. I would definitely recommend her without any doubt.
Just passed with Marc, one of the best instructors out there. Didn’t feel like lessons at all. Felt like driving with a very experienced friend. Highly recommend the school for anyone looking to get themselves a license!
I had my driving test (manual car) on the 30th of December and passed first time with Ronnie as my instructor, after having failed twice with two other instructors.Ronnie is extremely friendly and patient. He prepared me really well for the exam and has helped me build my confidence tremendously. I would highly recommend him as he is a fantastic instructor!
Thank you Chelsea Driving School for introducing me to Maria, who is the best driving instructor I could ever have wished for. I was a completely novice driver and thanks to Maria’s brilliant teaching technique, never-ending patience and kindness she has helped me learn in the most relaxing way. She deserves all the credit and I can’t imagine anyone being a better instructor than Maria is.
I passed on my first time with Daniel after failing twice with a different instructor.Daniel is extremely competent and has very good teaching skills. He is calm, patience and really friendly which really helped me to build up confidence and improve. I really enjoyed my time with him, he knew the areas to focus and how to prepare me for the test and future.Best driving instructor in London, do not hesitate!!
Ronnie taught me from scratch and I passed both my theory and practical tests first time with his guidance (manual car). He is an excellent teacher, very patient and calm and builds your confidence in your ability to drive. He answered all my questions comprehensively and ensured I knew what I needed to know. He was also punctual and flexible with lesson times which was very handy. Recommend him to anyone wanting to learn to drive.
I highly recommend Ronnie - he is great instructor!!! I had a very enjoyable experience getting to learn how to drive a manual car. I literally had never been in the drivers seat before which got me very scared in the beginning but Ronnie helped me ease into the driving and over time built my confidence. Last week I did my driving exam at 10:14am and at 11:05 I had my certificate in my hands. Very smooth experience!
Ronnie is the best! I changed 3 instructors before I found him. Thanks to him I passed first time (manual). He is very patient and just a brilliant teacher. He is extremely experienced and knows just the right words to explain things. Couldn't recommend him enough!
Ronnie was a great instructor! I passed first time after only 3 classes. He is punctual and focused during the lessons. He provides valuable advice, and is quick to point out areas where I could improve. He is patient and calm, which definitely helps with the nerves - he made sure to properly answer every question I had. Would highly recommend!
Daniel - Automatic Hands down to Daniel!!! Absolutely delighted to pass my driving test first time. Daniel is superb, excellent instructor, patient, very practical on driving skills and flexible on lesson’s location and time. He knows the test routes inside out, that’s really what I needed - to know what roads, roundabouts, speed limits in areas and much more, even the parking bays you’d be tested on manoeuvring. If you want to pass your driving text in first go, ask for Daniel!
Daniel is a very friendly, approachable instructor who always put me at ease. Both his constructive and positive feedback allowed me to build my confidence. I thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with him and would recommend him to anyone wanting to drive!
MARC IS AMAZING!!! I passed FIRST TIME after 10 hours! Marc makes you feel so comfortable and confident. He is also so much fun to be around and I highly recommend him and his unique driving techniques and skills. THANK YOU MARC MY HERO!! 5 STARS
Naomi was an amazing driving instructor - I passed in an automatic first time after only 6 weeks. She helped me feel confident from the beginning, always gave calm, clear instructions, and helped me focus on areas I needed to improve. Plus her car is great to drive and a hybrid!
Marc is not only a brilliant instructor, but he also makes lessons fun and friendly! Above all else, I have learned to become a much better road user in our time together in the car. Marc makes excellent drivers out of his students, and he is a personable and compassionate instructor, I can’t recommend him enough.
Naomi - manual. Naomi is a brilliant teacher who helped me pass my test first time. I always enjoyed our lessons and came away with valuable learning points at the end of each one. Naomi is also very organised which made scheduling lessons straightforward. I'd highly recommend her as a driving instructor.
Ronnie was an amazing instructor! I passed first time (Manual) after only 3 months, starting from scratch. He is very punctual and flexible with lesson times and pick-up points which is great! He is organised and flexible when it comes to lessons. Give great advice, and is quick to point out on areas which I could improve on as well as minor mistakes. He also gives great advice for not only the exam but also how to drive safely. He is clam, relaxed and very encouraging which definitely helps with the nerves, very funny too! As someone who has a lot of questions, he was very good at explain everything very clearly and making sure that I knew exactly what he meant. His car is also very clean and nice to drive. This points all made learning how to drive a pleasure. Would highly recommend.
Extremely friendly and nice driving instructor. (Maria) She thought me all the rules really well and ended up passing in the first go. High quality car too. Got to learn in a brand new Mercedes A-Class. Really good teaching and experience overall. Would recommend.
Naomi was my driving instructor, and I couldn't recommend her more! Passed a manual test in her car, and she taught me so much so quickly. Easy pick-ups from outside my house, and such a nice lady to feel comfortable driving with.
I had Maria as my driving instructor. I found her to be an excellent instructor. She always remained calm and was kind. The way she explained everything was clear and she made me feel very comfortable about driving in general and the test. I would recommend her to anyone who is considering learning to drive.
Maria is an amazing driving instructor.Driving was a big challenge for me and she has been very supportive throughout the learning experience. She has a great teaching technique, always calm and patient even when I made the same mistake dozens of times. She would explain in a very clear way. Above all, she makes you feel comfortable and is a very pleasant person which is important when you spend hours in a car with someone ;). I highly recommend her.
Montana is a fantastic instructor and thanks to her, I passed first time! I highly recommend her! It's very hard to find a good instructor (I first learnt to drive with two other instructors from different schools before picking it up again with Montana) and I can assure you she's the best one out there. She teaches you absolutely everything you need to know before you can drive independently and confidently. Montana is punctual and teaches in a clear, precise and methodical way. We had lovely chats whilst driving and it was an absolute pleasure learning to drive with her! Thank you! 🙂
Ronnie was a really good driving instructor, and helped me pass first time in the test. He taught me all the skills and details I needed to passing my test and earning my licence. Quite funny guy too. Would definitely recommend
Phil was a very supportive and exceptional instructor who went the extra mile to make sure I felt confident driving and helped me pass the first time! He was very professional, knowledgeable and was always keen to help, not only for the practical test but also by providing advice about the theory test and any other queries I had. I would definitely recommend Phil and Chelsea Driving School to anyone interested in learning how to drive.

Mary was the best instructor I could have asked for. Her calmDemeanour helped me so much and she kept things nice a simple. I would highly recommend her to anyone. Thank you Mary again for all your help. Delighted to have passed!
My instructor Mary was patient and encouraging always. She always made me feel safe when learning to drive on roads that I wasn’t familiar with. She was accommodating when arranging lessons and always easy to contact. She helped me pass my test for the first time which I really wasn’t expecting to do!
I don't usually write reviews, but this is the best driving school in London. Tried many different driving schools before, but only got my driving license thanks to this one - excellent and professional instructors! I would recommend Chelsea Driving School school without a doubt.
Naomi - ManualI passed first time with 4 minors thanks to Naomi's teaching. She was a really good instructor, being firm when needed but otherwise very chatty and welcoming. We had some really good discussions in the car both about the driving and about current affairs, so lessons were not dull at all. She really impressed on me the importance of driving safety, which I all the better a driver for.
Maria was my instructor and I can 100% vouch she is an exceptional instructor. There are absolutely no faults I can point out throughout my experience, she’s an amazing person, always made me feel comfortable and was very easy going. I appreciate her support and time invested into helping me receive my license. She should definitely receive more recognition as her technique of instructing was phenomenal, I would definitely recommend. Thanks again!

Daniel was my driving instructor and I highly recommend him to help for your driving test preparation. He was extremely knowledgeable and very helpful. I passed my first attempt with his instruction. He was strict during preparation which made the actually test much easier because I was so well prepared. I highly recommend Daniel for anyone learning to drive or to get a refresher.
Proper chuffed, passed my practical exam this morning. Got taught by Andy Nash who was so kind and patient. Very supportive and encouraging and put me at ease right before the test. Brilliant experience, he turned something that was new, scary and intimidating into something I now love and am confident and comfortable in.
Thanks to my amazing instructor Mary I passed my driving test first try yesterday.Mary filled me with confidence and immediately made me feel comfortable and safe in her car.

It was my first time learning to drive and I had a great learning experiences with Maria. At first when I contacted the school, there was another instructor contacted me. We had our first lesson, but he was just not right for me. Hence, I have asked for anther one, and I was lucky to have Maria as my instructor. She is always punctual and flexible (try her best to accommodate your schedule), very patient and calm, well prepared... I can just keep listing out how good she is. I really have no single complaint during driving lessons I had. I have got my license and am look forward to having more lessons with her to strengthen my driving skills! Thank you Maria!!
