I had a 5 day course with Paul after failing a fantastic 6 times before that and I passed with 1 minor! 😀 He is funny and relaxed and has my sense of humor so we got on well. In the end I had a great week and he made sure that I knew every inch of Maidstone! I would and have recommended him to friends. Thank you

The intensive course that I took with 1st gear was fantastic. I learnt more in a week than I previously did in 3 months with a different driving school. I had my test this morning after 20 hours worth of lessons and passed with no minors at all. I am so happy and can not thank Paul and 1st gear enough. I highly recommend choosing this driving school to get you through your test! There’s not even any point in looking at other driving instructors because you absolutely won’t find another one that is better !
