Waqar is an excellent driving instructor. He was recommended to me by Kevin from the Rated Support Team. He is reliable, honest, and makes the lessons enjoyable. He taught me everything from scratch with patience and professionalism. He also helped me find a test date and organized lessons around my busy schedule. He made me feel confident and prepared me well for the test, which I passed on my first attempt. I highly recommend Waqar to anyone who wants to learn how to drive. Thank you, Waqar and Kevin!

After failing my first test I had booked a second test on very short notice. Luckily Manju offered me a last minute lesson 2 days before my test, and in 2 hours Manju gave me an in-depth lesson where I learnt tips that I did not learn in my 25+ hours with other instructors! For the first time I felt like an instructor cared about me passing, which helped me stay more confident and relaxed during my test. Thank you so much Manju!

I'm thrilled to share my experience with Kayani's driving lessons, all thanks to Kevin from the support team who pointed me in their direction. These lessons are hands down the best I've ever had. Kay's teaching style is not only comprehensive but also remarkably patient and encouraging. Learning to drive with Kay is an absolute pleasure—they make everything seem so effortless. One of the most impressive aspects of Kay's lessons is their affordability. Despite the top-notch quality of instruction, the prices are very reasonable, making it accessible to everyone. This commitment to providing high-quality education without breaking the bank is truly commendable. Moreover, Kay goes above and beyond to tailor the lessons to each student's needs. Whether you're a complete beginner or looking to refine your skills, Kay adapts their teaching approach to suit your individual learning style. This personalized attention ensures that every student receives the most effective instruction possible. In addition to their excellent teaching skills, Kay is also incredibly flexible and accommodating. They work tirelessly to accommodate your schedule, making it easy to fit lessons into even the busiest of lifestyles. This level of flexibility and reliability makes the entire learning process smooth and stress-free. Furthermore, Kay's passion for teaching shines through in every lesson. Their enthusiasm and dedication to helping students become safe and confident drivers are truly inspiring. It's not just about passing the test—it's about instilling lifelong driving skills that will keep us safe on the road for years to come. Overall, I cannot recommend Kayani's driving lessons highly enough. From their exceptional teaching abilities to their affordability and flexibility, Kay ticks all the boxes and then some. If you're looking for a driving instructor who is thorough, patient, and genuinely cares about your success, look no further than Kayani. You won't regret it!
