Comments from Martin's Driving School in Plymouth Customers

Thank you everyone that has left their review and feedback! You Stay Safe!

Still in shock, cannot believe I have finally passed my test, after so many years of putting it off! Thanks to Martin's Driving School in Plymouth, who since stepping into the car, was friendly. Patient and helped me gain my Pass. (Robert D)(Milehouse).

I would like to say a very big Thank you to Martin, who trained me up to pass first time, with Just 1 minor fault. He is a fantastic Instructor, and I really enjoyed his style of teaching.Nothing felt rushed, but equally not a minute was wasted. Lessons move at a pace which was comforatable to me. There was no car sharing, so I had never had to give another pupil a lift, or sit in the back for a ride home. I always felt relaxed and safe. I also appreciated all of the skills necessary for day to day driving solo after passing. Also worth mentioning, Martin gave me full access to a Premium theory training App at no extra cost, which I used to pass my theory. Lesson bookings and progress was recorded through The Total Drve App, which I found to very helpful. I highly recommend Martin to anyone looking for an Instructor. Cheers! (Lewis T)(North Rd East).

I have to say, without Martin's determination, patience, humour, effort and 'never give up' mind, I believe that it wouldn't be possible to have passed.

I felt so lucky that I have learnt driving with Martin, who is highly skilful, knowledgeable and professional. At the beginning I was very nervous, but Martin has been just brilliant. He can make students feel comfortable and enjoy driving. In less than 3 months, he has taught me all the important skills and knowledge for safe driving. Without his outstanding teaching method, I would never been able to pass my Practical Test first time. Driving is not as difficult as I had imagined at all when learning with a great teacher like Martin. I'm sure many more of your students will enjoy the learning experience with him like I did. Many Thanks!.....Jenny X. (Beacon Park).

Learning to drive is a difficult process, but I found Martin to be a very patient, informative and freindly Instructor who made my time as a Learner as Stress-Free as possible. I passed both my Theory Test and Practical Test first time with his help and guidance, and I'm very grateful to him! Thanks again.....Alice B (Peveral).

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Martin for his time and patience in teaching me drive. He is an excellent Instructor who I would certainly reccomend to anyone. Thanks again.....Ken C (North Prospect).

Will allways concentrate on areas You need to improve. I definitely look forward to doing my Pass Plus with this guy.....Howard D. (Plymouth Uni). (Mutley and Manchester).

What to say after You helped me Pass My Practical Test? You Trained Me to know what is Essential to not only Pass The Test, but also to Drive Safely. Thankyou for Your Professionalism and Friendly Attitude, I've enjoyed being Your Student, THANK YOU MARTIN!.....Charly K. (Plymouth Uni) (Stonehouse and DR Congo!).

Martin was my first and only Driving Instructor. When I first got in the car I had never driven before, and Yesterday I passed my test First Time (after only 40 hours). Martin gives Excellent Tuition, is Patient and most importantly constructive rather than dismissive when discussing errors. I would like to say Thankyou for getting me through first time and recommend Martin to anyone looking for a great Instructor.....Jake R. (Eggbuckland).

Passed my Test today. First Student of Martins to take the New Independant Driving Test. Thanks to Martin I passed with only 1 Minor Fault. Every Lesson was Productive and as equally fun, especially as Martin has a good sense of humour and is very calm and relaxed. Martin has taught me to Drive Safe, not to just pass the Test, training I will allways use whenever I get behind the wheel of a car. Thanks again Martin.....Steve B. (Ernesettle).

Thankyou again! Calm and Consistent Training that definitely paid off! A Very Professional Attitude to Teaching and Training.....Ashley R. (Peveral).

Martin is a Good Instructor. He is very patient, and He spent time to explain everything for Me. He also helped build up my Confidence. Although I didn't take my Test In UK, but He taught me all Basic knowledge which I use well, and here I am, I can drive In Hong Kong and Everywhere! Many Thanks.....Elain K. (Plymouth Uni.) (Hong Kong).

Martin was Understanding of situations, and was allways as flexible as possible. He got me through at my own pace, and onwards with much more confidence and awareness. Many Thanks.....Brett B. (North Rd West).

Passed on My first Attempt thanks to Martin. A Great Instructor who I would Highly Recommend to Anyone! Every Lesson was Fun as well as Being Productive. Many Thanks.....Tom K. (Milehouse).

Well what can I say? Passed My Test first time today and it feels Great! I previously had 40 Hours with a different Instructor and never felt I was moving forward. I had 20 Hours with Martin and here I am...a Driver! I could not have done it without Martin. He allways made sure I Understood everything and helped Me calm down when I got frustrated. I cannot thank him enough and would recommend him to Anyone. Will miss My Driving Lessons very much and will miss the laughs we had. He always made Me feel comfortable and has a great sense of Humour!. Thanks again Martin!.....Pippa H. (City Centre).

I passed my Test First Time after 22 Lessons. I had previously tried to learn with another Instructor, but didn't feel I was Progressing. It was the complete opposite with Martin. Not only was he Patient, He provided Progression. I felt I was moving on with my Learning. Each week We were tackling different areas which I needed to learn. it took Me 3 attempts to pass my Theory Test and almost gave up Hope. Martin on the other hand, gave me the Confidence to carry on. He even offered Me a 'Free' Theory Lesson, where He was happy to go through the Test, Including the Hazard Perception. The Car is a 'Dream' to drive! Martin has even fitted it with special Blind Spot Mirrors to help with Manoeuerves. (They really do Help!) I would definitely Recommend anyone to Learn to Drive with Martin. Not only is He Good Value for Money, He's Very Patient and an Excellent Teacher. He manages to Calm You down if You become Stressed or Nervous, as I did on Many Occasions! I will miss My Driving Lessons. Once Again, Thankyou Martin!.....Martin F. (Peveral).  

Martin helped me to Pass my Test on the First attempt! I was impressed with his Patience and Professionalism. His friendly Approachable Personality was a great help. Well done to him for putting up with me for over 60 Hours!! Definitely would recommend to anyone who asked..... Gordon T. (North Prospect).

Martin Is the Best Driving Instructor Ever!! I passed First Time after 22 Hours. Thankyou Martin for putting up with my moods....Martin is extremely funny...Ive got lots of Fun Memories. I will Definitely be recommending Martin to Everyone! Thankyou....Robyn K. (Kings Tamerton).

I Have passed my test first time after 40 hours lesson with Martin. I Don't think I could have done it without him. None of my friends passed on the first test, so I believe I will fail as well, but he allways made me think Positive. He's very patient, good sense of humour, and brilliant. He's not just taught me pass my test, but also taught me to be a safe driver. I definitely recommended him as the best driving Instructor....Thankyou very much Martin, all the best for you....Alice T. (Honicknowle).

Martin is very patient and managed to put up with with the tantrums of a hormonal, pregnant woman! The man deserves a medal! i did 40 hours and passed first time. Would highly recommend. Thanks for everything....Jessica B. (Crownhill).

I would like to thank Martin for his patience! He is a super Instructor, kind, so funny and has a wicked sense of humour! Made me feel at ease everytime. I would, without a doubt, recommend anyone to go and learn to drive with Martin, in fact, once my son is ready for his lessons, Martin is the man I shall be ringing! Thankyou Martin.....so much.... Saffy P-J. (Torpoint).

Martin is an excellent Instructor. I would recommend him to anyone. Passed both my Theory and Practical Tests in 30 Hours. Cheers Martin. Thanks for all your help! John M. (Higher Compton).

After a few lessons and 3 tests with a different Instructor, I never thought I would pass. I didn't have the confidence before I started learning with Martin...he was amazing! Such a calm Instructor and was there to help me with anything. After about 20 hours with Martin, I went for my test and passed!! I was so happy that he'd taught me to drive well. I would recommend Martin to anyone who is thinking of learning to drive....You couldn't get a better Driving Instructor. Thank you so much Martin!!....Jenny A. (St Budeaux).

Martin was an absolute legend. The best thing about learning to drive with Martins Driving School, was that Martin didn't simply teach how to pass my test...he taught me how to drive. If you're like me, and you need to know what to do and WHY to do it, I would highly recommend Martin.... Will Fletcher. (City Centre).

Every Lesson was a Laugh with Martin. Very good Instruction, and easy to to talk to....Ben H. (Plympton).

Just like to say, that Martin has been a great help in getting me past my test. I went to him after being with a larger school, who never had any patience whatsoever. He's built my confidence 10 fold, and really taught me how to drive safely. I'm now in London, with a new car, and a new job. Thanks mate. good luck with the new website....Steve. (Ivybridge)

Hello Martin...well what can I say, patience of a saint,and very understanding. I was a learner with Martin for a year and a half, and was in 6th form where he would pick me up. Then I started full time employement, working difficult shifts, and he was very understanding. I have recommended him to friends and colleagues, and even my sister will be starting with him. One of the freindliest,helpful,patient instructors there are. thanks for everything Martin,really appreciate it. Will be in touch for pass plus soon. Becki.xx (Plymstock)

An excellent instructor, would recommend him to anybody. Very professional. I had 49 hours training, and passed both my theory and practical tests first time... Richard D. (St Budeaux)

Martin is a great instructor,who taught me not only to drive, but to show me how my attitude must be when behind the wheel. He is patient, understanding, and very helpful when I came across a problem.It was because of his training, that I passed my theory and practical tests first time! Thanks Martin.....Kirsty B. (Devonport)

Hi. On the first day of my driving lesson, I was very nervous, but as soon as I met Martin I was a lot more comfortable, and soon found he was very patient. A reliable instructor, who had knowledge and plans at hand to make sure I understood and learned properly. All my lessons were explained properly, which made them easier.The driving record made me persevere more, and helped build my confidence. Martin was very supportive and gave me handy tips when my test day arrived. His car was clean and nice to drive which I think reflects the owner to. Thankyou....Arturo C. (Beacon Park)

I would just like to say that Martin is a very good instructor, and has helped me a lot to get through. I was very pleased with the way he taught me, because the other instructor I had was not as patient as Martin. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to learn to drive, and would like to thank him very much, as without his help, I would have not passed my practical test first time. Thanks....Mike H. (Beacon Park)

I passed at last, first time. Martin was very patient, and a brilliant teacher. I would recommend him to anyone. He is also very approachable, and I feel he is able to adapt to anyone. A genuine nice guy. A big thankyou....Tracy H. (St Judes)

Martin is a great instructor. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to learn to drive. He is more patient than all the other instructors I have been with before. Thanks to Martin, I have passed my test at last. Thankyou once again....Steven W. (Mutley)

My freinds daughter recommended Martin to me. I lost my husband several years ago, and never thought about getting back in the car. Up to that point, I had been driving for nearly 35 years. I was very anxious, nervous, and in a lot of doubt about driving again. As soon as met this man I felt very relaxed, and after a little while, my confidence started to build. Martin never rushed me in to anything I wasn't keen on! It took me a little time, but I am now driving alone, and he has also taught me how to park safetly in a car park when I do my shopping! Thankyou very much Martin for your help and support through this hard time....Betty. (Plympton)

I just want to say that Martin is an excellent Instructor, and would reccomend him to anybody who intends learning how to drive. Martin is very patient, proffesional, and offers a freindly enviroment to learn in. I was originally with a different instructor, but changed to Martin, and immediately saw a improvement in my driving. I had 36 Hours training, and passed both my Theory and Practical tests first time. I am now on the road and it feels great! Thanks Martin....Tom B. (Saltash)

Martin proved to be a freindly instructor, whom I didn't have any trouble asking questions, no matter how silly I thought they may be! This was a great service that got me motoring through my test. Top Marks!!....Russell S (RN) (Manadon)

I found Martin was very patient and successful in his tuition over the past year. I highly recommend him to anyone....Alice P. (Southway)

Passed my driving test today! Been driving with Martin for over a year, and he is fantastic! Really good at picking up your faults, and teaching you how to correct them. He uses little ways to remember things like parallel parks! So glad i have finally got there! Thanks Martin! See you around!!....Leighann G. (Keyham)

A really good teacher who can pinpoint exactly when you're going wrong, and how to correct the problem...great if you're dead nervous like me! Martin is a really great bloke. It was a pleasure learning with him....Sarah P. (North Rd West)

I Passed my Theory and Practical test first time after 32 hours training, which really pleased me. Martin has a great way of teaching each subject, sorting out any problems which arose, and most of all made it fun to learn. Getting this licence was very important, as this now enables me to help further in my career. The free Open Road Vouchers were an excellent bonus!! Many thanks Mart....Grant C. (Pennycross)

Just like to say thankyou so much for teaching me how to drive and to pass my test first time. You were very patient, excellent insructor and easy to talk to, which calmed me down, especially in my first couple of lessons. Thankyou for putting up with me during the past year....Jessica P. (Plympton)

Incredible Driving Instructor. I'm International student from Malaysia. Been driving couple years since I was in Malaysia. All I need to do is 'Modify' the driving manner better to reach UK Driving Standard. Martin did the lesson very well. All the lessons were taught stepwise, in the fun and unlax manner. Martin can allways spot your bad bit immediately, and show the right way to do it. Don't hesitate to send him an e-mail or call him, and you can definitely get instant reply within a day. Thanks Martin....Teck. (Plymouth UNI)

Martin has been brilliant during my time learning with him, getting me to pass my test, and it will be a shame that I won't be driving around with him in the car no more!! Easy to talk to, and even a bit of banter goes on in the car, which I found really helpful to calm my nerves. Thanks Martin....Ash. (Beacon Park)

Passed my Driving Test today, and all thanks must go to Martin! Such a great Instructor and a fantastic person. I enjoyed his company. Shame its the end! Thanks again....Connor M. (Plympton)

Finally passed my Driving Test! I was so nervous and I didn't think I would ever get there, but thanks to Martins patience and Professionalism, my confidence was able to grow and grow. Martin provided a very relaxed and comfortable atmosphere every time, and I miss having him sat beside me whilst driving, but I'm loving my new found Independance! Thanks Martin, couldn't have done it without you....Nicola S. (Devonport)

When I first started with Martin, I never thought I would get there, but he guided me through the couple of months, and taught me everything I needed to know very well. I passed first time, and have Martin to thank for that! Cheers Martin!!....Phillip B. (Plympton)

I enjoyed learning with you...a really good experience. Never felt pressurised while driving. You were nice and calm, and never felt I needed to prove to you I could do something!....Victoria H. (Pennycross)

Martin helped me pass everything first time. I highly recommend him for anyone, as he is very patient, and is good at helping you understand what you need to do to improve....Josef M. (Milehouse)

Martin proved to be a freindly Instructor. who I didn't have any trouble in asking questions. I would recommend him to anyone. Thanks again Martin....Michael H. (Plympton).

Learning something new approaching middle age is not easy...I was extremely nervous, cautious and at times negative, but Martin was very patient, supportive and positive. He wouldn't let me give up, when at times I thought I was hopeless!! I'm astounded I passed the practical test in 11 months, thanks to Martin, and look forward to the opportunities driving will bring to my life. Thanks again....Victoria E. (Mutley).

I Passed my Driving Test on the third occasion. I still cant believe it! I thought It would never happen, but Martin never gave up on me. When I first started driving I was very nervous, so it took me quite a few lessons before I could move out onto main roads. I did all my lessons (124 hours!) with Martin. I didn't have anyone's car to practice in which may have speeded up my learning, but then I'm quite lucky I haven't picked up someone else's bad habits! I would recommend Martin as a good instructor to anyone who's thinking of learning to drive. He's very patient and has helped build my confidence a hundred fold. When I made mistakes he'd allways help by explaining where I went wrong and how to put them right. He's not scary like some instructors that I've heard about that start shouting and going mad every time you make a mistake. He's very understanding and knows that some people just need a bit more time. I'm actually going to miss going out for a drive at the week-ends now as I save up for my first car. I really enjoyed learning to drive. Thanks Martin!....Belinda B. (St Judes).

Just passed my test today, first time, and must say all was down to Martin. Couldn't have done it without him. He is a great Instructor. I would recommend him to anyone!....Scott M. (St Judes).

Martin is a great Instructor. He is really friendly, and gave me the confidence I needed to pass my test. Thanks again Martin....Sarah C. (Saltash).
