Everyone you see above had driving tests cancelled due to the Coronavirus lockdown. They all had to wait 4 long months before they could get new dates, but the wait was worth it. Each passed and nobody got above 3 minor faults. Infact, Keeleigh got a clean sheet. No minors at all. A perfect test. Well done to all.
September 2020 Jade said: ”I’ve was learning to drive with Darren for almost a year. He was recommended to me by a relative and now I will be recommending him to anyone else that needs lessons. He is always reliable and professional. His lessons are fun but at the same time you achieve a lot within them. His teaching methods put you at ease and calm any nerves that you may have and you can go into the test with confidence that he has helped anyway possible. I passed first time and this is down to Darren being so nice and always persevering with me. Would highly recommend!!  Thank you Darren.” September 2020 Niclas said: "After almost a year of lessons I finally passed the test quite comfortably even though I was very nervous. Thanks to Darren I was superbly prepared for every possible situation and knew the test area pretty well. He was very patient while I was still getting used to the car but started pushing me to the best of my ability and putting me into test situations when he knew I was ready. He managed to push me to the best of my ability, and helped me become a safe driver. I would definitely recommend Darren to anyone thinking of taking driving lessons, as they would definitely appreciate his humour and lovely style of teaching as well mature into a very good driver. He made me the best I could possibly become in the time frame and made me really enjoy driving." August 2020 Aiman said: “Darren is a phenomenal instructor and I highly recommend Filby Driver Training to anyone wanting to learn. I was naturally quite nervous approaching this course but Darren was so patient and made me feel very comfortable and relaxed in every single lesson up until the hour before my test. He was amazing at helping me manage my nerves, learn techniques to allow for impeccable driving and most importantly, pushing me to enjoy the whole experience. Darren is thorough, professional and organised in his lessons and I felt so prepared by the end. The use of CCTV cameras on his car is an amazing technique which allowed me to watch all my mock tests back, pushing me to improve week by week. He is clearly very passionate about his job, evident by his teaching style and attitude towards each and every lesson.  I give so much credit for the first time pass to Darren, thank you for making me feel safe, confident and teaching me to believe in myself.” August 2020 Keeleigh’s Dad said: “My daughter passed her test today after a series of lessons with Darren, first time, zero minors. The stats show only 1 person in 120 people past first time with a perfect test. On this basis alone, clearly a fantastic instructor, and I know because he suggested to her I came out to learn myself what is being taught these days on one of her lessons. And I learnt a lot which really helped me when I took her out. You can never give guarantees to pass first time of course, but I tell you, your chances massively increase with Darren” March 2020 Rhys said: “Fantastic instructor. Darren’s lessons pushed me to not only succeed in my practical test, but also to become a safe driver having passed first time. I fully recommend Darren as a driving instructor and I can’t imagine doing my lessons with anyone else.” October 2019 Josh’s Mum Lisa said: “I’m very proud to say that both of my sons have now achieved a first time pass with Filby Driver Training. Darren is the best driving instructor you’ll ever find. He is very calm and patient and teaches to an extremely high standard. My sons have very different personalities and Darren very quickly identified that they required a different style of lesson. I would have no hesitation in recommending him as a very competent driving instructor.” July 2019 Jack said: “After having had some poor lessons with a previous instructor, I came to Darren being able to drive but not at a good level. After some lessons with Darren, I was able to book a test and pass it with Darren's help. A great driving instructor and so would highly recommend!

Every few years, all driving instructors are assessed by a DVSA official, who attends a live lesson and grades the quality of the lesson against a variety of criteria. I took my latest Standards Check on 28/01/2020 and retained my Grade A. There are just a few Grade A instructors in our area, and I am delighted to be one of them.
