what people say

Hey I was just writing to say how much of an excellent teacher Lee
 is. I have just completed my second lesson with him and I am
enjoying it so much. I was very nervous before but he is such an excellent
teacher I just wanted you to know his efforts are very much appreciated.
He’s the best driving teacher I could ever wish for.

Thanks alot!

Hi Jon, I would like to say thank you for all the time and help and confidence you and Mint driving school gave me. I found you very easy to get on with and you have the patience of a saint. Without the professional help you gave me I would never have been able to reach my goal of learning to drive. A big thank you to Jon and Mint driving school for providing an excellent service. 

Many thanks.

I am writing to say a special thanks to my instructor Lee.
I began my first driving lesson with Lee on Thursday and 5 days later I am
now a qualified Driver.  Lee worked together with me on my intensive
course and worked at a good pace to get me up to speed as quickly as
possible.  I in turn made sure to concentrate and take on board all of the
help and advice he gave me.  In the end it was a lot of hard work, but it
paid off.  I appreciate all of your help Lee, thanks very much from a very
proud driver.

I am currently receivng driving lessons from Jonathan, I am extremely pleased with the lessons i have had so far. I first started learning ten years ago with another instructor, then changed instructors a further three times before giving up altogether, until I heard about Mint driving school. I have found Jonathan’s method of teaching very effective and reassuring, I am a nervous driver but Jonathan is very patient unlike some other instructors!! I am still progressing well and hope to put in for my test a little after christmas. I have strongly recommended Jonathan and Mint Driving School to every one I know who needs driving lessons.

I went with Mint Driving School after having lessons with several other companies and Mint was the company I stuck with and passed with. This, I feel, was down to the instructor. He had just the right temperament to teach me how to drive as he was patient, calm, encouraging, positive and had a sense of humour. On top of this Mint were extremely flexible with my lessons and very reasonably priced. Top company, I would recommend it to anyone.

Mint driving School was great.  John, my instructor, was very patient and it did not matter how many times I forgot or did it wrong he would go over it as often as needed.  John provides a fantastic learning environment and it really is thanks to him that a passed that dreaded test.   John and Mint did more than just teach me to drive they taught me how to be a driver.

Adele is a great driving instructor. She was understanding, strict but didn’t need to shout to get her point across. She built up a good relationship with me which made me feel more comfortable and gave me more confidence. She always had the time and faith in me. I would recommend Adele and Mint Driving School to any learner driver. Charlotte Mole - Derby.

My driving instructor Adele was very good and we had a laugh but she still had the one thing in mind – to get me to pass my driving test. I would recommend Mint Driving School and my driving instructor Adele to anyone who has had driving lessons or if its their first time driving. I took one driving test with Mint Driving School and passed first time. So thank you Adele.

Adele is everything you could wish for from a driving instructor. She was reliable, patient and she always made me feel relaxed, clam and safe. Her method of teaching was brilliant. Adele would brake things down into stages so that it was much easier to grasp. Not only was she a great instructor but she became a friend, calming my nerves and giving me the motivation and encouragement to carry on and pass. Without Adele I don’t think I would of pass the driving test so I’m forever greatful for sticking with me and helping me to succeed.
