Darren is AMAZING! He made me feel confident in the drivers seat right from the first lesson, and not once did I feel unsafe or panicked. He helped me pass first time in just 3 months, and was amazing at keeping me calm and making sure I was ready during the build up of my test. Thank you Darren!

Having my dad, Darren, as my driving instructor was a lovely experience. Not only making me feel confident and relaxed on every one of my lessons but also making them enjoyable and engaging. As a driving instructor Darren (my dad) is so understanding and very patient which I found was so helpful on my lessons which built my confidence to enable me to pass my driving and theory test first time! He has an amazing way of teaching with lots of helpful and fun tips and sayings to help things stick in your head and for you to remember. Overall I’ve really enjoyed my driving experience and couldn’t thank him enough! Would definitely recommend Darren if you want a fun, enjoyable, quick and relaxing driving experience! Thank you

Great driving instructor! Darren made me feel comfortable and relaxed from the moment I started driving. I really enjoyed learning to drive with Darren, always felt safe and had fun learning at the same time. Darren also helped me pass quickly as I was on a tight deadline and was efficient in getting me a test quickly. Thank you!

I had learned previously with a different driving instructor and got into some bad habits. As soon as Darren started teaching me, those habits went away and i became a way better driver. He teaches in a calm and supportive manner which made my overall experience smooth and worry free. I had my driving test 3 days ago and i passed first time all thanks to Darren’s teaching methods. Can’t fault him.

I cannot put into words how amazing Darren is. Having previously had a different instructor, Darren’s lessons were so much more helpful and supportive than any I’ve had before and made me feel very comfortable driving. I’m so pleased to have passed first time and truly feel this was down to the time and effort he puts into each of his students. Would definitely recommend.

Darren is a brilliant driving instructor with a relaxed and simple teaching methods especially when it comes to things that the pupil struggles on. I have learn much faster than I had done with a previous instructor and also enjoyed it much more. Moreover Darren is very easy to talk to which makes the lessons more enjoyable and has never raised his voice.

Darren was amazing from start to finish. He made driving seem much simpler than I thought it was, with clear and easy to follow instructions on how to improve my ability each week in order to become a safe and confident driver. He has the experience and know-how to tailor lessons to what you need during lessons, whether you’re confident or a more nervous person, always making you feel at ease if you make a mistake. I can’t recommend Darren as an instructor enough, he’s a great teacher, easy to get along with and chat to, and it was a pleasure learning how to drive with him.

I failed my test quite a few times before having lessons with Darren. I honestly lost count but it was more than 5 and less than 10. I was starting to give up hope that I would ever pass. Darren helped me to identify the things that I was doing wrong and we gradually worked on them. He had a clear plan the whole way through and somehow always kept his cool during lessons, unlike some other instructors I’ve had. That was very helpful for me as his confidence just rubs off on you. Darren is a great driving instructor for anyone but especially if you are doubting yourself.

Darren worked very hard to build up my confidence, which started very low due to a few accidents in the past and how late I learnt to drive. He took his time and was patient when I backslid in my confidence. I also felt in control of the car far quicker than I imagined I would, which was due to his instruction. Naturally have an even more positive view of GDI because I passed first time. I would recommend, especially if you’re a bit more worried about learning to drive than others or think you’ll need a lot of confidence building. As an added bonus he’s also quite fun to talk to in the car, which helps you stay relaxed and also makes the whole experience more pleasant. If you’re like me you needed quite a few lessons, so having someone you get on with definitely helps.

I would definitely recommend Darren to anyone looking for a driving instructor. I found his teaching style really suited the way I learn. Before I started lessons with Darren I used to feel really nervous about driving and not very confident in my ability. Darren’s style of teaching made me feel relaxed from my first lesson and that increased my confidence and definitely made me enjoy lessons more. I have Darren to thank for supporting me so that I was able my test first time.

Passed 1st time with Darren with 1 minor. He will always be there to pick you up at the time he said and he’s ready to teach straight away. Not only am I really impressed with his knowledge of teaching and about the driving tests but he also uses high end equipment inside his car which allows him to show you how the maneuvers are completed correctly. Overall very happy with Darren as a driving instructor! Would certainly recommend to friends and family.

I passed first time with no minors and I owe that to Darren. He created a fun, relaxed atmosphere in the car which made learning to drive seemed easy. I had things going on at home when I was learning and Darren would often alter the lesson plan based on how I was doing that day. He always pointed out when I did something well and helped me learn from mistakes and quickly move on from them. He is a very fair guy, a very very good driving instructor and a genuinely nice person!.

Darren is a great driving instructor, who I would definitely recommend! Before driving lessons I’d had a lot of experience with racing my own kart and had good knowledge about driving in general. However it was Darren who taught me that driving on the road is very different to driving a kart, and the huge responsibility it involves. He was very relaxed, friendly and gave clear instructions. He taught me how to be a safe, controlled and more confident driver. His experience and knowledge of what the test involves really helped, pointing out key “hotspot” areas that you may have in your test, and the possible test routes. Thanks to him I passed first time, with no minor faults at all! I would highly recommend Darren to anyone wanting to learn to drive.

I had a few lessons with another driving school and my instructor just more or less let me drive around without pointing out any problems I had. After about 10 lessons with this school I wasn’t happy, a friend told me Darren was good so I gave him a call. I booked his introductory lesson and I was taken back by how different Darren was to the other instructor. After the lesson I had learned more in the 2 hours with Darren as I did in the 10 hours with the other? I booked the full course and I have never looked back. Darren is a fantastic instructor and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him. He is relaxed and friendly but clearly knows how to teach. He always made certain that I had everything I needed and that I really understood everything what’s more I never felt unable to ask.  He is easy to get along with and to talk to so that no lessons were boring. Darren did an amazing job in getting me to a level where I felt confident to drive in any situation! My learning didn’t stop when I left the car as Darren made sure I had diagrams and information which I could look over in-between lessons to help me with any worries I may have had when I was at home. I recently passed my driving test first time! with no faults, Thanks Darren…

I’d put off driving for years, but after reading Darren’s reviews online I decided to book a lesson. It was the best thing I could have done. After a number of bad experiences with previous instructors, I was a very nervous driver. From day one he made it his mission to build my confidence, not letting me give up when my nerves took over or doubt set in. After a number of lessons I not only felt I could one day pass, but actually started to enjoy driving. He went out of his way to send me videos and links that could help with me understanding the why behind what he was teaching me. Nearer the test we worked on building up my confidence, so I could not only drive, but believed I was a good driver. It absolutely worked- I had my test this morning and passed! Not only that but I have spent the past week being excited to show off my skills to the instructor, but I didn’t feel nervous at all. I would say to anyone who is thinking about lessons with Darren – go for it! I couldn’t have picked a better, more patient and fun instructor. I owe Darren a huge thank you for helping me to finally ditch the public transport!

Having experienced two driving instructors before teaming up with Darren, I’d experienced very different approaches to teaching/learning – Darren’s way worked! Punctual and professional but very easy-going and reassuring in terms of adapting to my learning style. My advice is to avoid classic text book driving instructors and to choose an instructor that fits with you; not the other way around – Darren was spot on and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to my friends and family.

Darren is a fantastic driving instructor. He is very supportive and he made sure I understood everything at all times. I thought learning to drive would be hard for me as I am a very nervous person but from the first lesson Darren made me feel at ease. He explain everything to me so well I could understand what I had to do and then we practiced it until I could do it by myself. I could always ask Darren if I had a question and sometimes the same question over and over about the theory and driving but he never minded explaining it to me again. Darren helped my pass my theory test first time and my driving test first time. Darren has giving me so much confidence I don’t feel nervous at all when driving on my own. Thank you Darren I couldn’t have done it without your help! Guildford’s number 1 driving instructor.

Darren is an excellent driving instructor who is full of enthusiasm and does all he can to help people pass. I had a regular 2 hour lesson once a week until I was ready for my test. Although I didn’t pass first time Darren filled me with confidence to keep trying and answered all of my questions and worries.

Darren is a brilliant driving instructor – very knowledgeable and makes the effort to get to know you and how you learn best. I’d taken lessons with another instructor about 5 years ago, but never felt confident enough to take a test. Darren has made me enjoy driving. He has a very calm, relaxed teaching style, and explains everything clearly (especially manoeuvres, which I’d always struggled with). I came to feel confident that I can drive safely and independently. Darren is flexible with lessons, and very fair and honest about how many you actually need. In the lead-up to my test Darren was incredibly helpful, with longer lessons and lots of support. I was nervous, but felt very well prepared, and I passed first time. I’m really grateful to Darren and couldn’t recommend him more!

The booking process was swift and easy; it was great to have Darren always willing to answer any queries. Darren was fantastic he was incredibly patient with me, always cheery and a real pleasure to spend so much time with. He was very thorough in getting my driving up to standard and was also very flexible if I needed to change my lesson times. Although my only experience was with a driving instructor, I know from talking to friends that the major difference of my experience was the personal attention that you get with Darren. Darren was hugely enthusiastic and really wanted to make me the best driver I can be. I was quickly put at ease behind the wheel and felt that Darren is obviously very experienced at teaching people of all abilities. He was always very calm and never made me feel silly or embarrassed if I made a mistake.

He not only taught me to pass my test (first time), but also taught me the invaluable ability to drive in many different situations.

I can’t recommend him more even with my random work shifts and son’s health problems he was able to sort me lessons out around these things. He is polite and makes you feel relaxed. He provides lots of info with pictures to help you learn to drive and pass your test.

I had to learn to drive and pass my test in just under 3 months as a requirement for a new job. Having not had any driving experience in the slightest I was under a lot of pressure but Darren gave me the time and guidance I needed to pass in time. After having 2 family members that have had problems when it comes to driving instructors, I cannot be more glad that I found Darren first! He is very honest, an extremely good teacher, and made me laugh a lot! I never felt uncomfortable in the car with him. Thanks Darren!

Darren provided me with driving lessons during summer 2013. The easy option would have been to sign up with one of the main franchise brands however after a detailed search online Darren stood out. Having failed several times in the past I now realise how poor my previous instructors were. Darren really did make the difference. He is very calm, a great teacher and has fantastic intuition ensuring the lessons suit the individual, the circumstances of the day and the technical needs of the pupil. I was completely prepared for the test, he taught me the manoeuvres quickly and effectively and we had a giggle in the car as well. I generally give praise sparingly but Darren really deserves the fantastic comments others have also posted. Oh, and I passed too!

I only started doing my lessons with Darren, Guildford Driving Instructor 2 months back. This was my first time driving a car and I was so nervous. After meeting Darren for the first time and doing my first lessons, I was soon relaxed. His methods of teaching are to the highest of standards, Always making me feel comfortable and more importantly, Confident. At times I felt like I was chucked in the deep end, however this gave me so much more self belief in my own driving skills. Darren is a great guy to know, and a great instructor. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to get driving! Today I passed my test with Darren’s guidance, First time with only 8 minors. I’m still so happy about how things went. I think the main advice I can give anyone is just to try and relax, Which at times is hard – But Darren done a great job keeping me calm. To anyone who is thinking about becoming one of Darrens students, Don’t hesitate. I promise you will not regret it. Many thanks and good luck to the future 🙂

Passed my test first time with only 4 minors thanks to Darren and Guildford Driving Instructor. I had previously had another driving instructor who told me I was too nervous to ever pass my test. Then I gave GDI a call and my mind was immediately put at ease! Darren was incredibly patient when I was nervous – and even when I was just a bit of a pain! Seeing a friendly face to get in the car with always made me feel better about my lessons and I grew to enjoy driving; something I didn’t think I would be able to do at first! I also now, thanks to Darren, feel safe and confident about driving my own car. He did everything possible in order to get me to test standard! I would definitely recommend Darren and GDI to anyone (and have already!); he’s a great instructor, listener and friend – and he’s pretty good for banter too! An all round nice guy. Cannot rate him highly enough.

Darren taught me for 4 months, from the 29th January to my test on the 29th May. His work is of the highest standard, it’s professional, flexible, and I feel a better driver having used his high quality service. It is reassuring to have a driving instructor that knows so much about his trade; Darren has an answer to every question and gives you insightful advice only someone at the top of their profession can give. His methods shine through in my successful test: I passed first time with 2 minor faults. Not only am I grateful for Darren’s fantastic tuition, but I can also count him as a good friend.

Learning to drive took me quite a long time and after failing my test many times with different instructor from different school I nearly lost all my hope. I was really lucky to meet Darren and to be one of his pupils, he’s very patient and he was truly interested in my success on the test. Very professional and scrupulous when teaching and I was learning and improving every single lesson with him. Thank you!!

Is an encyclopedia of driving knowledge, answered all my questions. He helped me relax and not be nervous for my test which I passed first time with only two minors.

I cannot recommend Darren enough. From the moment I first started the car to passing my test, he has been 100% supportive of me. Driving can obviously be a very daunting task but the pressure is completely taken away with his teaching method. I always felt safe with him in the car and knew that I could at any point ask him advice on aspects of driving that I was having problems with. The lessons focus very much on making you a safe driver, rather than one who can just do all the right things for the examiners and having now begun to drive independently, the full impact of this has come into play. I feel totally relaxed on the road which I thought I would never feel when I couldn’t get passed stalling at the beginning! Every lesson was enjoyable thanks to Darren’s great sense of humour and warm personality. He is a really friendly guy and will make the entire experience a personal one for you. For making driving enjoyable, informative and safe, he is without doubt the man for the job.

Passed my Driving Test with Guildford Driving Instructor – Pupil in Wickford, June 2012

The thing for me about driving lessons is that I’ve never really had the confidence to start them. I’ve always tended to be on the nervous side with anything that I do and, as a result, driving seemed like a non-existent reality. However, after beginning a course at Merrist Wood College and having no option but to stay on-site, I realised how beneficial driving would be to me, so I bit the bullet and emailed Darren (GDI). He immediately called me, put me at complete ease, and said I should have a taster lesson to see how I would get on in the car, and the rest, as they say, is history. The amazing thing about Darren is how relaxed he is in the car. I must admit stories of ‘strict’ driving instructors had been one reason that put me off taking lessons, but this could not be further from the truth in Darren’s case. First of all he is a great instructor, but this is because of his attributes: He is funny, calm headed and never at all raises his voice; even when I made some pretty big mistakes! He understands that you need to be able to experience driving for yourself –including the mistakes- so that you can become a good, and especially safe, driver. At the same time he is always there for you if you have a question to ask or any sort of niggling worry. The truth is I don’t think I could have passed without Darren, and I now realise that it was a blessing not starting my lessons earlier, as I would have missed out on meeting an incredible individual. Not to mention the fact that without him I’d probably have just failed umpteen tests, instead of the first time pass I achieved with him! Darren, thank you, you have most certainly changed my life.

The teaching styles of Darren has helped me grow in confidence. There is always great feed back at the end of the lesson. You leave the lesson knowing what you need to work on for the next lesson. With working with a tick list you see what needs to be worked on. Out of all the driving instructors I have had Darren has helped me the most, made learning the manoeuvers easer to remember. While driving, the atmosphere in the car is really relaxed and easy going, there is no pressure or stress, which helps a person who might be low in confidence! I would recommend GDI to all my friends and family!

Darren was a fantastic driving instructor. I was really nervous when I first started driving my Darren put me at ease and was always calm and relaxed. He was also always very honest, if he felt I didn’t need any more lessons he would refund the money and I didn’t feel like I had more lessons that I needed. What I really think separates Darren from other driving instructors is the fact that he makes you a good driver before he starts on the exam. Lessons like the distraction lesson give you a good idea of what it will be like when you have friends in the car and what the realities of driving are. I would really advise going with Darren.

Darren is simply brilliant! I remember how nervous I felt before my first lesson and how this was instantly reduced when I found out how relaxed and patient Darren was with his teaching methods. I was a nervous driver and knew very little about driving before I started lessons but Darren’s constant reassurance and support allowed me to gain the confidence I needed to drive. Darren is easy going and let me work on the areas I felt weakest on in order to gain more and more confidence. I passed with 5 minors and would just like to say another thank you to Darren for everything he has helped with 🙂

DARREN IS A FANTASTIC DRIVING INSTRUCTOR. He really made me feel at home in a car and his calm, reassuring attitude made driving second nature to me in a matter of weeks. His dedication to his students is unmatched and his confidence in you as a driver if you listen to what he says is 1st class. I passed my test first time with only 3 minor faults and this is a credit to all of Darren’s hard work over the past few months. Even with a 9 month break for the summer, I was able to get back in a car and, with Darren’s instruction, drive as if I had never been away. I honestly challenge anyone to find a more friendly and professional driving instructor than Darren. Thank you so much! Ben.

Darren is an amazing driving instructor! I passed first time with only 4 faults 🙂 Like most people I was very nervous the first time I got into a car but Darren makes you feel relaxed and comfortable straight away. He is a reliable and professional driving instructor, but is really easy to talk to and becomes a friend as well as a teacher. He provided me with the knowledge and confidence to drive safely and correctly on my own and his reassurance and motivation was definately what allowed me to pass my test! His extensive knowledge of all things driving meant I could ask any question and get a factual and helpful answer and allowed me to broaden my driving knowledge. No matter how many mistakes you make, Darren stays calm and collected, supporting and encouraging you to correct and rectify the situation on your own which I feel is a huge confidence boost, knowing you can get yourself out of tricky situations. I am SO glad I learnt to drive with Darren and will miss my regular driving lessons which were always fun and interesting. Thank you so much Darren! Highly recommended 😀

An absolute pleasure to learn with, Darren has taught me very well and I am now a confident and safe driver. Despite at first fearing the day I had to drive by myself, now at the end of my lessons with Darren I am really looking forward to being able to be more independent and I feel that I can trust myself to be safe, and I have started to quite enjoy driving. He is relaxed and easy to be with, and keeps cool even in difficult situations when I may have been raising my own panicked voice. He is also straight forward and down to earth, and teaches you to be a safe driver and how to pass your test while maintaining the connection to the reality that after passing the test you will probably change some of your habits- I know how to stay a safe driver even if my habits become less than test perfect. He managed to fit lessons into my hectic schedule around college and rehearsals, and stayed very helpful and positive throughout the entire process. I learned quickly and every one of Darren’s lessons were efficient and valuable. I am really looking forward to having a few motorway lessons following passing my test.

My son passed his driving test with Darren 1st time! We live in Fleet but my son goes to Guildford college and it made sense to do his driving lessons in Guildford as he wanted to take his test in Guildford. We searched around for a driving instructor and did what most people do – search for the cheapest. We soon found out cheapest is not the best! We booked 4 hours with a different instructor and my son didn’t like the instructor teaching. I gave Darren a call and booked an introductory lesson with him. My son told me he learnt more in 2 hours with Darren than the previous instructor. So my son was happy for Darren to teach him to drive. Darren has done a brilliant Job!

Which was exactly what I needed in an instructor. My learning didn’t stop when I left the car as Darren made sure I had diagrams and information which I could look over in-between lessons to help me with any worries I may have had. I would and do fully recommend him to people as he is an excellent driving instructor and is also very reliable. Thanks Again.

I would highly recommend Darren as a driving instructor! He is extremely friendly and reassuring, and he really helped me to regain my confidence on the road. I took driving lessons with Darren having not driven for many, many years. Darren was very good at assessing my confidence levels and discussing my aims and concerns at the beginning of each lesson, explaining road rules and techniques, and continuously checking my understanding and comfort levels. With his patient and positive approach, he effectively helped me reach my goals week on week. We will definitely be engaging Darren again as an instructor for my Italian partner who has not yet driven in the UK. I can’t recommend Darren highly enough! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Darren is an amazing driving instructor. He made me feel relaxed and comfortable straight away. His advice was really good and clear at all times. He boosted my confidence when I was not feeling very confident. He is easy to get along with and to talk to so that no lessons were boring. Darren did an amazing job in getting me to a level where I felt confident to drive in any situation! I always looked forward to my lessons with him and I would recommend him as an instructor to anyone and everyone! He will make you confident, self-assured in the car and to a high level of driving in a short space of time! I shall strangely miss my lessons! Thank you Darren :)!

I could not have asked for a more friendly, honest, hard working and knowledgeable instructor. He has completely transformed me from a nervous, unsure driver into a happy and safe driver. He always made certain that I had everything I needed and that I really understood everything – what’s more I never felt unable to ask. He has absolutely earned his reputation, and I couldn’t recommend him more strongly.

I was very pleased with having Darren as a driving instructor, he was always on time, polite and very encouraging.  I found learning to drive with Darren enjoyable and was very pleased that I passed within 3 months with only one minor. I would recommend Darren to anyone who wanted a good driving instructor.

Passed my Driving Test with Guildford Driving Instructor – Pupil in Guildford, September 2010

I was very nervous about learning to drive as I never had any experience with cars, however Darren was patient and relaxed throughout. Which made me feel comfortable! Not once did he ever shout or criticise me when I did something wrong, just reassured me that it’s fine and told me what I should do to improve. Whenever I had a question about driving, he always gave good detailed answers. His knowledge of driving is amazing. I enjoyed all my lessons (even the ones I drove bad on) as Darren was always positive and fun. I would recommend Darren to anyone wanting to drive. I honestly can’t think of a bad thing to stay about him. He helped me pass my test and enjoy my experience of learning to drive. If he can teach me who has a memory of a goldfish, and still stay so calm and patient, then he can teach anyone.

Darren is a fantastic driving instructor and I would recommend him to anyone wanting to learn to drive. He is always very patient and understanding, seeing the whole driving experience from a learners perspective. The driving lessons are always good fun and the time seems to just fly by. Darren is very clear when explaining maneuvers and when mistakes are made he’s always ready to give guidance on how to improve. He has really given me the confidence to drive independently and I can’t thank him enough for helping me pass. Thanks again.

I think the work Darren has done with me has been excellent – he has made me feel comfortable and relaxed and confident when I’m driving and is so friendly.  When I first got behind the wheel at my first lesson, I was really shy and on edge and now, thanks to my lessons with Darren, I am confident and conscientious. I have recommended Darren to my family and friends.

Darren is a fantastic driving instructor and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.  I had already had many lessons with another instructor, but lacked confidence, didn’t feel like I was progressing, and generally felt very negative. After my first lesson with Darren I felt totally different.  He is relaxed and friendly but clearly knows how to teach. He picked up on several things that no-one else had commented on, but stopped me worrying and gave me the confidence I needed.  He seems to genuinely want you to enjoy it and learn to drive for you, rather than for because it is an income for him. If I had started with him in the first place I would have needed far fewer lessons in total!

If you’re looking for a driving instructor who will push you to improve and learn while being patient and understanding when you make mistakes: I’d recommend Darren. The biggest compliment I can give is not only did he feel like a driving instructor, he felt like a friend while instructing me. We had our fair-share of jokes and fun, especially in wacky situations like when we came across two ducks who were adamant to block traffic I know for a fact that without his teaching and instruction, I never would have passed first time! It was a pleasure learning to drive and I would recommend him to anyone wanting to learn.

Before I started driving lessons I was slightly nervous because I had never been behind the wheel of a car before and my knowledge of driving was very limited. However I need not have worried. Darren was very calm throughout every lesson and made learning to drive both interesting and enjoyable. Even when mistakes were made, he added reassurance and told me to focus on the positives and how much progress I had made, rather than dwell on the bad, while at the same time talking through the errors and making sure they didn’t happen next time. Darren is especially good for individuals who perhaps aren’t the most confident, whether in terms of driving and in general, due to his relaxed manner and I would recommend him to anyone wanting to learn to drive.
