Driving instructors Ele and Richard by an Ipswich School of Motoring car

What our students say

We know it can be a daunting task to find a driving instructor you feel comfortable with. On this page you can read what some of our students have said about driving with us, and their experience with Ipswich School of Motoring.

"I enjoy driving with Richard because everything is explained thoroughly and it's easy to understand. I would definately recommend Richard to all types of beginer drivers because he makes you feel confident and relaxed and I think that is important when learning to drive."

- Grant Adams

"I used Ele to teach me to drive and passed my test within a short period. I found her teaching techniques to be very relaxed, but very constructive. No one lesson was boring and I always found the lessons to be of great value and used to look forward to my next lesson every time.

While working towards passing my practical test Ele provided me with learning material to help me pass my theory test and was extremely helpful in answering any questions I had. As a person, Ele is patient, understanding and made me feel relaxed from the first lesson. Over time I have recommended a number of my friends to Ele and have only had positive feedback. I will definately keep recommending Ele to people in the future as she is simply fantastic at what she does."

- G Hodgson (Ex Student)

"With Richard you get full value with your lessons: it is all teaching. I passed my test 1st time and I would not have done this without Richard's helpful and patient training."

- Beckie

"I have always been a nervous driver, having tried several instructors, I was absolutely over the moon to meet Ele. She was totally honest and not one bit patronising at all!

She made me feel very relaxed and comfortable and got me through my test 1st time. She remains professional, but is there as a friend too!!

I would recommend her to everyone. She is an amazing instructor - THE BEST IN THE WORLD!"

- Mrs Emma Hewitt

"I had to change driving instructors during the course of my lessons, and in the short time I was with Richard I learnt so much more. I wish I had contacted Richard when I first started to drive."

- Laura

"Ele always came accross happy and cheerful when I had my lessons. I always enjoyed my lessons and looked forward to my next one. If anything ever went wrong she was always there to help, and explain what I need to do.

Thank to Ele I past first time, and alot quicker than some of my mates."

- Chris Lincon, 17 years

"Your driving starts from the 1st lesson. Richard has so much patience & understanding and he knows when to go from serious to a bit of fun when teaching."

- Rosie

"Having not driven for 30 years, although I had a licence, I felt I needed to learn again. Ele covered all the necessary skills and I learnt to drive even though I didn't need to pass a test. I give Ele 9½ for teaching skills."

- Andrew Farthing, College lecturer
