Wouldn't of been able to do this without your knowledge and expertise, thanks once again Ollie"

"Thanks for this Ollie, couldn't have passed with anyone else. Had such good lessons on a sunny Friday afternoon for many months that all lead to this beautiful day here! Really good teacher but also more of a friend now, hope to see you soon!! Thanks again ✌🏻️✌🏻️"
"Can't believe I passed first time! Thank you Ollie for letting me do as many catch up lessons as I could in the few days before my test. Thanks for always being patient and taking time to explain things to me in an easy to understand way. Your handy diagrams and information sheets were a lifesaver in the run up to my test! Don't think any other instructor would have been able to give me the confidence I needed to pass. Hope your new students find the "Bella Park" useful! All the best :)"

Bella to Hampton Hill

"Couldn't recommend Ollie enough, top instructor and made every lesson fun but really effective. Also, massively patient throughout, especially at the early stages."
"Dear Olly, I wasn't expecting to ever pass my driving test as it was something I was terrified of when I started lessons aged 17... 17 years later I passed first time. You have been immensely good about fitting lessons in around my sons childcare which was really important to me. You gave me a lot of confidence in my driving ability and encouraged me to believe that I would pass first time. As a mum I think it is so important to be able to to drive. Olly you have helped me so much to make that happen and I will always be so grateful."
Jack from Hampton Wick
Sophie from Surbiton

"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.“
Vicky from Hampton
Heather from Teddington

"Thanks Ollie, it's been a fun experience. I really appreciated your patience and you always made me feel at ease. Top class instructor!"
"Thank you so much for being able to fit me in at such short notice Olie! Knew all I needed was your help to pass. Will definitely be recommending Totally Driving, all the little hints and tips given along the way are what got me through my test! Thanks again"
Vicki from Feltham
Sabina from Whitton

"Thyago started taking lessons in Teddington after his wife Francesca started driving with Totally Driving, Thyago had high standards to meet from the get go, as his wife passed first time with Ollie. But Thyago passed on his first attempt at Isleworth Test Centre."
"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!"
Thyago from Teddington
Francesca from Teddington

Emily from Kingston Upon Thames
James from Hampton Wick

"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!"
"Ollie's been a great instructor, every lesson is fun but he is still a really good teacher at the same time. No awkwardness there either, very friendly and he is guaranteed to get you passed!"
Matt from Surbiton
Max from Whitton

"Just want to say a massive Thank you to Ollie for helping me past my test! A fantastic driving instructor who makes you feel completely comfortable on all lessons and is just so down to earth! I had 2 previous instructors prior to him and he was by far the best! Definitely recommend Ollie to anyone and everyone! Thanks again Ollie, lessons where always fun and if will miss your cheeky comments! "
"Haha, that's a cheese photo for the books! Thank you so much for putting up with me for the amount of time I've been driving, you've been a wicked instructor and kept me smiling even when things went wrong, we won't mention the first attempt... :P. It was such a relief to pass, couldn't stop smiling all the way home!! Thank you again!"

"Ollie 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. "
