First Class Instructor
"Dave is a fabulous instructor and I could not thank him enough for helping me pass. He is extremely patient and very friendly. I totally recommend taking driving lessons with him as he makes them fun and panic free !!"

I Passed First Time!

"I could not have passed without the help and guidance of Dave, he is very patient, professional and understanding but also has a great sense of humour which makes the lessons enjoyable. Dave was never late for a lesson and never cut a lesson short and I felt he gave me his full attention throughout each and every lesson. Dave also helps you learn out side of the car using a system of written A cards. I cannot recommend DPA School of Motoring enough."


Thanks So Much



"Thank you Dave for all your patience helping me to learn how to drive and Pass First Time".

"Great instructor who goes above and beyond for his pupils always makes lessons fun and the T and A cards are a bonus for helping with the theory test and the practical test". "I would highly recommend DPA!"

"Very good methods of teaching, the A cards really helped me. Dave was always friendly and patient in lesson and I was taught how to drive safely and confidently Thank you!!!"



Passed First Time!!! and I cannot fault Dave's instruction at all and I only needed 30 hours. Dave is very experienced and knowledgable which gives you a good sense of confidence while driving, no matter what stage of your lessons you are at.”
“I would 100% reccomend DPA to anyone learning to drive. An outstanding and reliable instructor week in week out. If you're searching for a dedicated, polite, knowledgeable and professional instructor, look no further than DPA!”

"The handout 'A' Cards he gave me really helped me remember how to do the manoeuvres". "His lessons were always fun and I would absolutley recommend him".




"Dave has nothing but patience and was always offering reassurance and guidance when I was nervous and worried. His easy methods settled me a lot and the A & T cards he gave me, acted as my own personal instruction manual helping me on each critical step I took. DPA has been a fantastic driving school for me and without the patience and perseverance from Dave, I highly doubt that I would have Passed First Time!!!"
