I passed first time with ZERO faults with Michael. His preparation for the test was great and made me feel confident as I drove on the day. He is a really good instructor. During lessons he kept me safe and was very encouraging, patient, hard-working, honest and professional. I chose him because of all the excellent reviews he has got and have now seen for myself why there are so many of them.
If you are a parent looking for an instructor for your son or daughter, I would thoroughly recommend Michael. He has been outstanding - by far the best instructor myself and my husband have come across for our sons. Chris, our younger son, passed first time with Michael and we found him to be reliable, honest and very good at his job. He worked hard for Chris and always found a way to help him get good at what he was learning. The structured programme which Michael has developed and which he tailored for Chris works really well as during lessons Chris learnt quickly and during the test he felt confident, passing first time. Michael also found the right words to encourage Chris throughout lessons and be focussed on his driving in the test, rather than nervous. We feel very fortunate to have found such a highly qualified and experienced instructor and can see why he has got the top DVSA grading as well as so many 5 star reviews.
My fiance Stephen learnt to drive with Michael and passed his test first time. He went on to do a Pass Plus course with Michael too, which lowered his insurance premiums.
Michael is professional, conscientious and understanding. I would particularly recommend him if you are an older learner or a nervous driver. Birmingham is a very busy and confusing place to learn to drive, so you need an experienced and highly qualified teacher. Michael fits this bill perfectly.
I passed first time with Michael who worked really hard to get me through my test. I achieved this with only 1 minor, which I am very proud of. This doesn't just reflect on how I did in the test, but all of the driving I have done since then. I am constantly using all of the knowledge and skills that Michael taught me and as a result I have been able to handle situations with ease and no worries.
He had a well thought-out plan to prepare me for the test and was encouraging, friendly, patient and professional during lessons. Michael is a top quality instructor who I would recommend to anyone who is planning to learn to drive. I am glad I didn't waste time with anyone else.
I passed first time with only 5 minor faults with Michael after my cousin recommended him to me after she also passed first time with him. He worked hard for me during lessons, prepared me well for both theory (which I also passed first time) and practical tests and really encouraged me to believe I could pass both. During lessons, he was honest, friendly, patient, understanding, knowledgeable and professional. Michael is a top quality instructor - highly qualified and experienced - and I would recommend him to anyone who is planning to learn to drive.
I passed first time with Michael with only 6 minors. He's a top class instructor who was very reliable and worked really hard for me, always finding a way to help me master what I was learning. The structured training programme he had devised specifically for me made lessons enjoyable and focussed - it also made me feel confident when difficult situations came up in the test. This great preparation together with all his words of encouragement meant I could drive at my best in the test rather than being nervous. I can see why he has such a high first time pass rate and I'm so thankful to Michael for getting me through first time also. I would most definitely recommend him.
Being a nervous driver, I am so pleased I chose to learn with Michael. He is patient, understanding and kind. People really should know what a good example he is. Each lesson he teaches how to show consideration for all road users including the disabled. He's also a very skilful driver - keeping me safe with quick reactions when required. My confidence has really come on with the programme he has specially tailored for me and all his encouragement. I would thoroughly recommend him - he's a top quality instructor.
My son has been making excellent progress with Michael in learning to drive. Chris has told me how during lessons Michael has demonstrated to him how to keep safe on the roads and show respect for all drivers - the young, the old and the disabled. Chris has also told me how professional, knowledgeable and polite Michael has been during lessons - and that has been my experience of him myself. I would thoroughly recommend him - he's an excellent instructor.
Michael has provided excellent refresher and motorway lessons for me. Having not driving for many years, he created a specially-tailored and efficient programme to build up my confidence and experience in dealing with all the things I found challenging like busy roundabouts, parking and motorways. During lessons I found him to be very honest, helpful, hardworking, friendly, patient, knowledgeable, clear, professional and above all encouraging. This has given me the confidence to buy a car and go out driving on my own - I would thoroughly recommend Michael as a top quality driving instructor.
Michael is a fabulous instructor who worked extremely hard to get me learning quickly and efficiently. He has a concern for safety at the heart of his work, not just during the immediate lesson but building this awareness in for the whole future driving experience of his pupils. He is a very highly qualified driver trainer, with a top “A” grading from the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency. He gave me clear instructions during the advanced lessons I had with him, using various strategies to improve my driving. He was very encouraging and taught me to perceive all possible hazards on the road. He had a clearly planned approach to improving my driving, tailoring that approach to my needs and the speed at which I could learn. I would recommend this instructor to any learner or driver seeking advanced training. His quick reactions and instructions to adjust my speed upwards or downwards as required kept me safe in the lesson and has subsequently helped me to remain so when driving on my own.
Michael is a terrific driving instructor. He's patient, kind and has worked really hard for me. His teaching has helped me learn quickly and show courtesy to all road users including children and the disabled. He's also helped me lots with preparing for my theory test. Thanks Michael.

I had two motorway driving lessons with Michael which were great. Michael was very reassuring and tailored the lessons to suit my concerns with motorway driving. This was particularly helpful being a nervous driver. Would definitely recommend Michael as an instructor, extremely knowledgeable and a great teacher. Thanks Michael!
