“I knew Bob from coaching football and asked him for a Bussiness Card. Learning to drive was harder than expected but got easier. I would recommend to friends because Bob was very friendly. I am very happy that I have passed and that I used Bob as my Instructor. He always encouraged me and showed me where to improve. The lessons were made enjoyable and the quality of his Instructing was very good. Ella Preston”
