"Passing first time..."

"After passing my test first time, I felt the need to give feedback to Your Driving Academy. In only a few months of learning with the Academy, I was given the confidence to take my test by my instructor. At the time when he told me that I should take my test I was slightly unsure if I would have been able to pass, but with his reassurance I went a head with the test.
My Instructor Etti, was kind, friendly and helpful during every lesson. His aim throughout was to ensure that I learnt the skills in order to be safe on the road and not just to pass my driving test. So now I feel like I am able enough to go out on the road by myself without having any problems. I would highly recommend YDA if you're wanting to pass your test soon, as the quality of service that they provide is worth every penny and you will be soon driving away with your pink licence."

"Etty is the best!"

"Etty is the best driving instructor you could wish for. His calm, patient approach always makes you feel comfortable and in control.
Thank you for the fantastic instruction that allowed me to pass. Your understanding and faith in my ability helped me learn everything I needed to pass but also saved me from wasting money on lessons that I didn’t need like other driving school would. As I had experience in driving just 5 hours of driving were enough as recommend by Etty. I would definitely recommend Etty to anyone who wants to learn driving and wants to pass.
Cheers Mr Etty
Thanks again for all your help I really appreciate"

"Passed in just 7 lessons!"

"I Passed On 31st January 2014 And I Am Glad To Say It Was because Of YDA. With Only Having 7 Lessons And After 2 Other Instructors YDA Was By Far The Best Driving School I Have Been To. Having Past With Only 1 Minor, I Was Most Definitely Taught By The Best. YDA Gives You The Confidence You Require, Teaches You The Best Ways To Perform Maneuvers And Do Not EVER Waste Your Time. My Previous Instructors Were Only After One Thing From Me Being Money. They Told Me I Required 20-25 Lessons. Whereas YDA Told Me I Would Only Require 5 And The Other 2 I Chose To Take For My Benefit. This Is A Way Of Me Saying Thank You To YDA. No Regrets With This Choice And Most Definitely Now That Ive Received My License Through The Post Happy Days…"

"Fantastic Experience"

"Driving lessons with Ehtesham as my driving instructor has been a fantastic experience. Although I have significant driving experience outside UK it was a new experience getting understand and appreciate driving in the UK.

Being an IT consultant I took my driving lessons when I was in the midst of a high pressure project. My schedules were erratic which I thought might be a problem but Ehtesham were very good at finding mutually convenient slots for my lessons. As for the driving lessons themselves, he had a knack for making me feel at ease at the wheel from the very start. His deep knowledge of the road comes across so well that I knew that I could rely on him to understand and be prepared for any challenge that the comes up on the road.

The most interesting aspect of the training was the through preparation for the test, I felt as if I was custom trained for all possible scenarios that my driving test would throw up. I am pleased that I chose YDA and Ethesham as a result of which I have aced the test in my very first attempt."

"Friendly driving instructor!"

"I just wanted to say a massive thank you to Etty for the past couple of months helping me pass my driving test. Coming from a small town where there are no crossroads to a city was nerve wrecking and daunting, but Etty made the transition as smooth as posssible. At times, I would panic and stress and I thought my previous instructor was good until I met Etty. His approach to driving was different in the sense that he doesn't spoon feed you, never tells you the answer therefore you have to figure it out. This way you actually learn and this prepares you for driving independently in he future. A friendly driving instructor with a lot of patience and I mean bucket loads. The availability is good and he always works around your schedule. Would definitely recommend. Once again, THANK YOU!"

"Etty is a great teacher"

""I joined YDA after a recommendation from a family memberwho had previously took lessons from Etty and passed first time. I had in the past took lessons from several different driving schools and came across many different instructors, non.e of which I found that helped me understand the technical side of driving. I gave up driving lessons many years ago up until this year when I plucked up the courage to try again. From my 1st lesson with Etty,
I actually felt for the 1st time as though I had found the right instructor. I can be hard work at times but Etty never hesitated to go over the same thing over and over again until I fully understood. Fine example of this was my fear of roundabouts and also not knowing which lane I had to be in and Etty spent a few lessons on the Porkpie Island roundabout only until I gained my confidence and understood what lane I had to be in when I would exit the roundabout. Etty is a great teacher never felt uncomfortable or scared unlike with previous instuctors, his cool, calm and collective with a great sense of humour, which goes along way when you sometimes don’t have faith in yourself. I found the driving lessons were enjoyable, in the past I used to dread having lessons but this time my experience was totally different I enjoyed every lesson. I would recommend YDA to everyone you can’t get a better driving school or driving instructor then Etty!"

"Very supportive and practical!"

"I have had a thoroughly enjoyable experience with YDA,who offered a personalised, friendly, yet professional service. After having been through a number of instructors who did not fit my requirements... or were not experienced enough to provide me with the skills required to qualify as a fully licensed driver, I finally came across YDA who were very supportive and practical. I am happy to say that I have passed my test and since then I am a more confident driver because of the life-long driving skills I now possess, all thanks to YDA."
