What they're all saying
I started to learn to drive with Carmen over the summer whilst back from uni, as soon as I got on my first lesson she was willing to help me in whatever way I needed. Learning to drive was made enjoyable and I felt very relaxed in the car with Carmen. Throughout the lessons she understood what was best for me when I stressed myself out or needed to go over something more than once. She gave up her own time when I particularly needed lessons towards my test and for that I can’t thank her enough. A fabulous driving instructor would definitely recommend.
I genuinely couldn’t have asked for a better driving instructor. Carmen is brilliant! After a car accident that put me off driving, I was lucky to find her. She helped me, going at my own pace, to regain all the confidence I had lost, and more. She is truly brilliant, such a lovely woman. She has great knowledge of driving and tips to help you along the way. I was so happy when I past my driving test first time, with only one minor! Would highly recommend!
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!
I was taught to drive by Ian. He was calm but also persistent in teaching. He taught me to drive in a week and I passed my test first time. There was never a time where I didn’t feel prepared for the test and Ian taught me the entire syllabus quickly and efficiently. Not only is Ian a fantastic driving instructor but he’s also a great person that you can’t dislike, even after being trapped in a car with for hours at a time.
It was a great experience to learn with Alan Drabble SOM, they were friendly, convenient and helpful in guiding me through my lessons
