What they're all saying
I would like to thank Chris for being a fantastic instructor who was very patient and calming throughout my lessons. After being put off driving by lessons I have had in the past with other driving companies/instructors it was a breath of fresh air to have such a supportive and likeable guy teaching me. I would without doubt recommend him to anyone and can't thank him enough for helping me pass my test.
First of all, I would like to thank Chris for seeing me through to passing my test. I would wholeheartedly recommend Chris to anyone who is looking to learn how to drive. An absolutely fantastic instructor who can adapt his instructing style to suit you. Chris knows exactly how to make you feel less nervous when driving and is an all-around great guy and a knowledgeable instructor. Once again thank you very much Chris, it has been a pleasure.
I would just like to thank Chris for all that he has done all the hard work and patience in helping me pass. Great guy to work with made sure I understood everything and a great guy to have a laugh with especially in the times when your nervous. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone looking to start driving. I can't thank Chris enough for helping me pass one word comes to mind about this guy which is legend! Thank you Chris for everything and all the patience you have given me.
Good Evening, I would just like to take the time to thank Chris for all his hard work and patience in helping me pass my driving test. He's a credit to your team and is an extremely nice guy, nothing was ever too much whenever I had any queries he always made sure I fully understood. He really is 10/10 and does a fantastic job, easy to talk to too and I would highly recommend him to anyone who asked me about a driving instructor! So thanks Chris for all the hard work and helping me pass!
It's been a pleasure to have had Chris as my instructor. His patience, kindness and calm nature have played a big part in ensuring I pass. He's truly driven to see you succeed and will do whatever is needed to acheive that goal. I'd like to thank him for all he has done and recommend him to anyone seeking an instructor. Thanks again. Robert Crofts.
I just wanted to send you a quick email regarding my driving instructor Chris. I think that it's only fair to let you know how much of an amazing instructor he is. Not only did he put me at ease and teach me to drive he made me feel confident behind the wheel and believe that I am a good driver (I've had quite a few instructors and non of them have managed to do this) I managed to pass my driving test on Wednesday without a single fault and I believe this is down to his teaching. He is a definate asset to your company and a true gentleman. Thank you for putting him as my instructor. Many thanks Amy
Passed first time thanks to Chris who was a pleasure to have as an instructor. He was always patient with me and punctual to every lesson. I would highly recommend Chris as an instructor to anyone who would like to learn how to drive.
Learning to drive with Alan Drabble was a great experience. The lessons were planned out efficiently and got me through my test with flying colours. My driving instructor was great. He explained and talked me through anything I didn't understand. They are a fantastic company to learn to drive with and help you through every step of the way!
What a great instructor! Always positive and patient. Had a good chuckle each lesson and was happy to go with my 'scientific' approach to driving. I couldn't have passed first time if he hadn't. Thank you!!
First time pass thanks to David! Couldn't have done it without him, enabled me to learn at my own pace and he was so patient with me!
Amazing driving instructor wouldn't have passed first time if it wasn't for David, would definitly recommend him. He never put any pressure on and allowed me to learn at my own pace. He's great instructor and bloke to talk to Thank you David
I have had a previous driving instructor to Alan (with another driving school). Alan came highly recommended to me so I thought I'd give him a try. I felt really comfortable and at ease with Alan, he is patient and very knowledgeable. I felt immediately a more confident and capable driver. He was always honest with feedback for me which included things I needed to concentrate on and what lessons I needed to take. On approach to my test he made time for me in the final week by giving me extra lessons. On the day he made me at ease and less nervous, and after I found I'd passed he went through the test feedback with me and gave me tips on what to do next. I'm really glad I chose to change instructors and will definitely recommend him to others. Thanks again From another happy newly qualified driver
Last week I had 2 x 2 hour refresher driving lessons with Carmen Andradas. Both lessons were extremely helpful and successful in terms of getting me back into driving, 4 years after passing my driving test. In the first lesson I covered all different road types, and all speed limits and then in the second lesson I covered motorway driving and accessing the service stations. Carmen was excellent as an instructor, making me feel completely at ease when I was driving and giving me advice/feedback as and when required. I would thoroughly recommend both Carmen and the refresher lessons.
I came to Carmen kind of half-knowing that I had basic driving skills down and just needed a bit of a push to get me through my test. She was really good: friendly, easy to get on with, patient and no-nonsense so that I learnt quickly over an fairly intensive set of lessons. Would definitely recommend her. Thanks.
Alan drabble was a excellent choice,had a fabulous instructor carmen.learnt me to drive very well and built my convidence up to pass my test.was exstremley patient and dedicated to getting u through your test.got 100% support all way through my lessons and even get a great app to help pass the theory test.I passed my test January 2015 never look back.I would say I'm a excellent confident driver.having your independence and your own car is the best feeling ever and owe it all to carmen.anyone wanting to take lessons would highly recommend carmen.
I met Alan at a networking event, and really wanted to learn to drive but as a 39 yr old had a fear that stemmed back to being 17. Alan coaxed me to take the plunge and quickly assessed which Driver would be best suited to me and he was absolutely spot on! Carmen was amazing and put me at ease, whilst pushing me further and further each week. It's almost like having a driving coach then an instructor. I have now passed my test and I am unbelievably happy about it. It has changed my business and my life. I will never ever be able to thank Carmen and Alan enough for helping me conquer a deep seated fear of driving.
Just passed my test first time, after learning to drive with Carmen. Brilliant instructor from a great driving school. I learnt everything I needed to in a space of time that was comfortable for me, as well as having fun and enjoying my lessons. Absolutely loved learning to drive with Carmen, and would highly recommend her to anyone!!
I have just passed my test in worksop and i owe it all to alan drabble school of motoring and my driving instructor Carmen! Thank you, Kaye A x
Having just passed my driving test, I can honestly say that Alan Drabble’s SOM is the best option for anyone looking to get started with driving! If you’re looking for a friendly, patient and reliable driving instructor, I would really recommend getting in touch with the school asap!! I would love especially to say a massive thanks to Carmen for her tuition – her patient, calm and friendly personality helped to transform me from a driving novice to a safe and confident qualified driver! Thanks for all your patience and encouragement along the way!!
After failing a few tests I began learning with Ian Morgan who gave me excellent tuition and all the skills and confidence to very easily pass my first test with him in a matter of weeks. I would VERY HIGHLY recommend IAN MORGAN if you WANT to pass your driving test and I WILL be using him for my pass plus course. Thank You VERY much and keep up the good work Ian
I started driving lessons in May with another driving school and all they did was mess me about. I changed after about 2 month to Alan Drabble SOM and passed within 10 weeks first time, Ian taught me calmly and was very patient with me haha. I’m so happy I changed and passed as soon as I did, thanks again Ian, recommended him to all my friends currently turning 17, learn to drive and see the world!
Ian is the best and I would recommend to any one!
Really enjoying my lessons with Carmen, really friendly and I’ve learned such a lot, in such a short space of time.
I was recently taught to drive by Ian Morgan, he was calm and very clear with me. Enjoyed my lessons each week and he got me through both my theory test and driving test first time. He never put any pressure on and allowed me to learn at my own pace. He’s a great instructor and a great bloke. Highly recommend Alan Drabble SOM.
My driving lessons are going very well. Carmen is great. I’ve also just passed my theory test!
