He is a great teacher, very professional, calm, patient and friendly. He gives good instruction and honest feedback that you can go away with and practise. My tester even said, at the end of my test, that my driving showed that I had been instructed well. Thank you Tony! I am very happy at getting my license and I couldn't have done without Tony and A1 driving school. I will definitley recommend his service. Thank you again!"

"I have nothing but praises for Tony. He is a great example of what an exceptional driving instructor should be. Starting to drive at a much later age I was always little apprehensive about approaching a driving school as I was worried about being judged about my driving, nerves etc. Tony on the other hand treated me like an individual instead of a number and really tailored each lesson to my particular needs. In very few lessons I was able to sit my restricted and pass on my first go. I even recommended a friend of mine who just didnt have great experiences with some driving instructors and with just a few lessons with Tony, she too was able to pass her restricted on her first go. Tony, I will continue to recommend you to other people and am hoping to book you again once I go for my full. Thankyou for giving me the confidence I needed and most iimportantly thank you for throwing in some humour into our lessons at times as it really helps for something which a lot of people out there find so daunting."
