Nothing bad to say about Derek from Bradley's driving school. The quality of training was really good. Taught from scratch and enjoyed the lessons. Found the reversing manoeuvres easy thanks to Derek's techniques. Passed first time, thanks Derek

I had been learning to drive for years on and off with quite a few different driving instructors but never seen it through. I decided to learn with Bradleys after searching online. Derek was fabulous. I couldn't have asked for a better instructor, so calm, patient and friendly. There was never any nastiness. The amount of knowledge I learned from Derek was amazing. The way he teaches you to learn to drive is fantastic. Would highly recommend.

That’s an astonishing 49 Zero Faults!

OMG! Another clean sheet this week.  Congratulations to Joe Morgan from West Cornforth near County Durham who passed his practical driving test FIRST TIME with a CLEAN SHEET on the 12th October at the Meadowfield  test centre in County Durham. We think Joe's parents need to take the credit for this one as Joe only needed six hour hours for some fine tuning. Our methods really do work and this strikes home why we think we are your No 1 choice for driving lessons.  

Congratulations to Driving instructor Kenneth Smith and his client Joe Morgan on taking our CLEAN SHEET TOTAL TO AN ASTONISHING 49 ZERO FAULT TEST PASSES
