Just to say a big thank you, my Granddaughter Miya attended your driving training at Barton Stacey until you thought she had learnt all she could off road. On her 17th birthday at the end of March, her Parents put her on the road with a local driving school. She passed her theory first time and last Thursday 21st September 17 passed her practical first time. The off road training was so important for her, she has so much confidence and we all agree your training helped her immensely before she was able to go on the road. Keep up the good work

Thank you for the lesson, Steven really enjoyed the experience and we will be booking more lessons over the next few weeks to help him prepare for him getting his licence after Feb next year. The instructor, Ryan, was very professional and when we book for September we would like to use him again if possible.

This was Katie's third lesson and she even drove me for the last 15 minutes. I was very impressed with both her driving and the way that Jon explained to her how to do the various aspects. As usual she loved the session. Would definitely recommend it to others.

I arrived to the 'drive before you're 17' site terrified of driving, but left having thoroughly enjoyed. My instructor was so kind and didn't expect me to do anything I didn't want to do, but also gave me the opportunity to come out of my comfort zone. Having come here 3 times now, I would definitely recommend getting a group of friends together and doing it all together as it just made my experience so much more fun.

The instructor (David) was pleasant and make him (in my sons words) ''feel comfortable'' about his first driving experience

My daughter had a great time. The Instructor tailored her session to reflect the fact that she is about to start driving lessons proper and the experience has given her an excellent head-start. The venue provides a safe but realistic environment for young people to gain driving and road awareness skills that are so important these days. I would thoroughly recommend !

I highly recommend. We did this as a birthday present. Our twins are nearly 12 and I wondered how the instructor would approach the lesson with them. He was great, very matter of fact, professional and calm and not remotely phased by such young students. They throughly enjoyed it and came away very pleased with themselves. They not only gained a good understanding as to the basic mechanics of driving a car but also the knowledge that they have what it takes to do it. Woohoo.Result ! It was a positive experience for them and will mean they will feel confident about further lessons when the time comes. Thank you so much.

e booked this for my grandson - he absolutely loved it. Didn't stop talking about it all the way home and from a 16 year old that is a very positive point. Jon was very knowledgeable and positive and I would recommend that all pre learners take this course and have a few lessons before they learn to drive on the road. It gives them a very good insight into driving.

My autistic son throughly enjoyed his two hour session on the Top Gear race track last year and wanted the same Birthday treat this year. Yet again the experience was "awesome " , many thanks to Ryan for his knowledgeable, friendly and professional approach. Highly recommended.

Our daughter has down syndrome and has wanted to drive like all of her mainstream friends. When we spoke with Jon prior to booking he instantly gave us confidence. He has the experience, skills and personality. He knew what he was doing and what to expect from our daughter. The whole experience for her was to be safe, have fun and give her confidence and fulfill one of her dreams. The experience did that - Thank you Jon!

I found Barton stacey to be a great location with superb layout where my daughter could get to grips with driving in safety. Jon was extremely polite and informative, we liked our instructor and will be happy to keep with her once my daughter reaches 17. It was useful that Jon put us with a driving instructor that came from our home town as I believe the continuity will be beneficial to my daughter.
