“Ollie’s a fantastic instructor, he made my lessons enjoyable and casual so I didn’t feel stressed. His hints and tips for tricky situations really stick in your head so you never forget how to deal with them, and he was so flexible with lessons despite my changing schedule. Top instructor, would definitely recommend lessons with Ollie!!

I have been driving for over 20 years (in the USA), but still felt I needed a few lessons to understand the expectations of the UK practical test. Olie was great at tailoring my lessons to fit my needs, making me feel like his only student both on and off the road. The extra tips (websites, videos, etc) he provided were so helpful for me to learn on my own. And, the positive texts on the day of the test helped ease my nerves.

In all I had a great experience with Olie. His professional attitude, encouragement (both positive and corrective) and calm nature made me feel confident. This ultimately led to me passing my test first time.

“What can I say?! I’ve had a fantastic experience learning to drive with Ollie. His teaching methods are brilliant and memorable and he made me feel totally relaxed, even after a three month break when I had my daughter (and put up with baby brain too!). Always flexible and happy to work around my changing schedule, I couldn’t recommend him highly enough! Thank you so much for everything!

 Olie’s a top drawer instructor who makes lessons enjoyable and easy-going. I learned the basics quickly and his effective teaching of manoeuvres will help hone your car control hugely. His lesson times are very flexible and with his great practical tips you’re bound to pass first time

Matt Passed Driving test photo in Surbiton

“Ollie has been a great driving instructor. I’d been with other instructors and found them difficult to understand and made slow progress. With Ollie his lessons are fun and you get to learn great practical driving tips. I passed first time and with his methods of teaching no wonder most of his students do! He was also able to be completely flexible, fitting lessons around my work and home in Teddington and Surbiton so that I could learn in as shorter time as possible and made the whole process easy for me.

I 100% recommend you use Totally Driving to pass your driving test!”

Matt from Surbiton

Driving School IsleworthOllie you have been an amazing instructor. Every lesson was entertaining and highly enjoyable. The additional use of an iPad, aerial images, a toy car (which even matches the real car!) and even video demonstrations makes your teaching methods perfection. Thank you for all your time and effort that went into helping me pass my test first time. I would highly recommend learning to drive with Totally Driving, you couldn’t ask for a better driving school.
