Went with L Plates as members of family had gone with them.
They said Mark is the driving instructor for Automatic and was highly recommended to me by family and friends.
He was very patient and friendly and this made the driving experience great for learning to drive.
Highly recommend If your looking to learn on Automatic. Darren. Hastings.

I would recommend Colin Dawes to anyone due to the fact that he is very easy to get along with and his teaching method is very effective. Communication with Colin is easy since its so simple to arrange lessons with him. He picks up on nerves of learner drivers and creates a comfortable and safe enviornment in what can be a challenging new skill to learn. 10/10 for L Plates Driving School. Kate. Tonbridge.

Learning to drive in my thirties has not been easy, especially with family and work priorities constantly in the way. John Mell has been an excellent instructor throughout this journey. He pays a lot of attention to details and was always on track of my progress. You won't meet many instructors who makes detailed notes of every driving lessons like him. I was thrilled to pass the test on my first try, all credits go to John and L Plates! Jenny. Reigate.

My instructor, John Leeming, helped me so much to pass my test. I had previously taken other tests with a different driving school and wasn’t successful. I was a nervous driver when I started my lessons with John but he was so patient with me and understanding even though it took awhile to gain enough confidence. John was always calm and helpful through every mistake. So 5 stars for service and quality. 4 stars for value as was a little pricey but still cheaper than my previous instructor. Leah. Eastbourne.

Frank Judah is an excellent instructor. I was extremely anxious and really took my time in getting to grips with it all but Frank was constantly patient, helpful and supportive. Really knows his stuff and I have already recommended him to multiple friends. Emma. Littlehampton.

A massive Thank you to John Mell for helping me to pass my test on the first attempt. He is very kind and helpful and the way of teaching is excellent. With all my 10 years experience behind the wheel (from aboard) I couldn’t do it without his help. Definitely I’ll recommend John. Rahul. Redhill.
Jim was an amazing driving instructor to have. He was very informative and patient when I first started with him, making it very easy to improve quickly. I'll never get tired of his seemingly never-ending repertoire of driving stories. I wish him the best. Jago. Brighton.

John Mell was my instructor that guided me to the level needed to pass my test on the first attempt. Not only is John one of the nicest people I have met, he was incredibly knowledgable and encouraging in all aspects. I highly recommend John and confident our roads will be safer with students lucky enough to come under his mentorship. Scott. Redhill.

I would like to say a massive thank you to my instructor, John Mell! He has given me driving lessons over a number of weeks and I have passed first time with only two minors (all down to Johns patience and teaching skills). I would highly recommend! Tom. Redhill.

I would like to thank Colin for all his hard work during our sessions together, always on time, Colin was very patient when we started as I had never driven before. Colin was extremely good at explaining all aspects of driving in a very clear and understandable way.
His preparation for my driving test was first rate, no stone was left unturned as we approached the practical test, explaining every detail so I was fully prepared for the test, which I passed first time.
This was all down to Colin, I would highly recommend him for anyone who want's to learn how to drive, Cheers Mate!

John Leeming is such a patient driving instructor. When I first started my driving lessons I was very very nervous. John made me feel at ease and confident. John makes sure that he has the times to suit you and will go the extra mile. Thankyou so much John for helping me pass first time! 100% would recommend. Emily. Eastbourne.

Colin was an excellent instructor. He placed the lessons well, was great with explanations and very patient. After failing my first exam due to my hesitation, I was very disappointed and upset. However, Colin was extremely supportive and was able to cheer me up and motivate me to try again. I was able to book another test after looking everyday and communicating with my instructor to make sure the date fitted us both. Colin was very flexible with his lessons and times. I was able to pass on my second time with 4 minors. Colin has prepped me well before the test and I was able to use his tips during the test. Would definitely recommend Colin as a driving instructor. He’s extremely patient, understanding and friendly. Colin was able to teach me everything I need to know about driving for the test and beyond in a very calm and relaxed manner. He prepares you well for the test and has a nice chat before hand to boost your confidence. He made my driving experience very comfortable and enjoyable. Thank you for being a great teacher! Kate. Tonbridge.

I was taking my driving lessons under Mr. John Mell from L plates Redhill. He is an excellent driving instructor with patience and proven techniques. He was the main reason I was able to take my driving test with confidence and pass the test. John has excellent skills and a lot of experience on the job. I would definitely recommend John to anyone who would want to learn driving the right way and gain their practical pass as I did. Abbas. Redhill.

First I want to thank Mark Napier for all his support throughout my time being a pupil at his driving school through L Plates.
I first came across Mark when I started learning again in 2013/14 using an automatic instead of a manual.
Mark shows a passion in teaching others to drive, a great sense of humour and also very calm natured with excellent support, especially with nervous drivers like myself and help build confidence in those learning to drive.
Mark taught me a lot about driving that my previous instructor didn't, he uses diagrams and put me scenarios to use my own initiative to tackle it.
I highly recommend Mark to anyone learning to drive in an automatic.
Once again thank you Mark for everything! Anna-Belle. Hastings.

I had the pleasure to have colin dawes be my driving instructor. Colin had a wealth of experience, very professional and his patients is fantastic. He pushes you in areas he believe you can do, even of you think you cant. Would definitely recommend. Katherine. Tunbridge Wells.

I learnt with terry, he was so friendly and made me feel so comfortable! As driving was something I never really wanted to do, but he made each lesson enjoyable! THANK YOU. Kim. Brighton.
Terry was very friendly and truth be told, i'm a little sad I've lost a good friend after passing the test. I can't recommend him enough. He was always patient with me and respected and understood the way I learn, this was very helpful to me as I sometimes struggle with learning new information. Cheers Terry! Luke. Brighton.

I want to say a huge thank you to Raj.
Raj has been absolutely amazing from day one until today (my pass day).
I am so happy to have passed first time and I definitely couldnt of done it without him. His teaching methods are amazing and very clear and easy to understand.
It was never a problem to keep repeating a certain skill until I had it perfected. Raj was very patient with me and would 10/10 recommend!
Thursday, 8 August 2019
I had John Leeming as my instructor and needed to get my license completed over summer before my theory certificate ran out. I was a bit out of practice so took time to get up to test standard. John was supportive, patient and constructive throughout the whole process. He understood my urgency to get it done while I was home from uni, but also never rushed the situation. He was calm and trusted my judgement and made me feel at ease the whole time I was in the car. He was friendly and polite throughout and I can’t thank him enough. I fully recommend L Plates Driving School, and John Leeming as an instructor. Thank you! Beth. Eastbourne.
Thursday, 1 August 2019
Colin was methodical patient and calm, and teaches you beyond what you need to know to pass the test, making you a better driver than otherwise. I managed to pass first time with only 2 minor faults and I credit that entirely to him and his teaching. Given the chance, I would recommend L Plates and Colin in a heartbeat to get you through the test. Peter. Tonbridge.
Thursday, 18 July 2019
Mr. Terry Bardsley is absolutely wonderful, patient, helpful person. Whenever I made a mistake he was so patient and showed me drive safe. I highly would recommend him. Thanks to him for being such a nice instructor. Merve. Brighton.

I would definitely recommend Raj from L plates, he is very nice, calm, and patient. He helped me pass first time so I would very much recommend. Zak. Crawley.
Thursday, 4 July 2019
I was very nervous when I started driving but John helped me to build my confidence over just a short period time. He is a fantastic instructor and very patient. I am extremely grateful for all of the support I received, and he was able to work around my home life. John helped me to passed first time with 7 minors. I couldn’t recommend John enough. Leslie. Redhill.

Colin was a great driving instructor. He was always on time and made me feel really happy every lesson. He taught things in such an easy way and I started learning and passed in 6 months. Maddy. Tunbridge Wells.
Tuesday, 18 June 2019
I would reccomend Tina Rixon if you want to do automatic. she is kind, patient and will explain everything to u. thank you so much for all your support and getting me through my test I would also like to say a big Thank you to Clive (eastbourne test centre) for your patience and for also passing me. I would 100% recommend L plates to anyone learning to drive. Charlotte. Eastbourne.
After failing my test 3 times previously I decided to switch instructors to try and build up my driving skills. Frank Judah was recommended to me by a friend and he really was fantastic throughout the whole process. Frank helped me build my confidence massively and taught me some things that I hadn’t even learnt in the previous year of learning! After 3 fails with a previous instructor I passed first time round with Frank which I think shows how much he helped me build my confidence! I would 10/10 recommend Frank to anyone, he focuses on getting people ready to drive safely and confidently for their whole future, not just to pass a test. Anne. Worthing.
Wednesday, 5 June 2019
I started my driving lessons in February last year, I was very worried and nervous to even get the car moving. But if it wasn’t for my amazing instructor Frank I would not have the confidence that I have today. I passed my driving test on Tuesday and it’s safe to say, I wouldn’t of been able to of done it without Frank. He is an amazing instructor and remains calm under pressure. For myself that is a type of instructor I needed. Frank is very friendly and an outstanding instructor. I can not recommend Frank enough. Definitely get yourself booked for lessons with Frank, I would not of been able to pass with the knowledge, safety and everything else that goes into driving without him.
Thank you so much Frank! Layla. Worthing.

Raj is a very good instructor, very patient and calm with his students, and very good at explaining what mistakes you made and helping you understand how to improve from them. He is very good at helping you develop good driving habits and teaching you difficult stuff quite quickly. He’s also flexible, and able to cater lesson times to whenever it is comfortable/suitable for you. Himesh. Crawley.
I would like to say a big thanks to Raj for helping me past my driving test first time with only 4 minors. Raj was very informative about driving in a safe and controlled manner. He taught me everything there was needed to know about driving and explained it very well. He would also go over anything that you dont feel comfortable with and make sure you wouId be. I had no previous driving experience and I now have full confidence in driving on the road thanks to Raj for teaching me all aspects of driving. Ryan. Crawley.
Tuesday, 21 May 2019
I thoroughly enjoyed doing my driving lessons with Raj. He was an excellent teacher and his lessons were tailored well to ensure that I got the most out of all of them. I would highly recommend him to someone who wants to learn how to drive! Rijul. Crawley.

One of the best driving schools out there. The prices for lessons are fair, and they offer some really good deals for loyal customers.
John who was my instructor, is one of the best instructors I've ever had. Very knowledgeable man who knows a lot not just about the driving itself, but also about the teaching techniques and how to approach his students. Something not a lot of casual instructors can do. Also very well organised, plans ahead and really shows that he cares about his clients and their driving life. This is the least you can expect from someone like John. : )
Once again John, thank you for your help. I really appreciate your patience, support and the programme you have accurately constructed for me. Despite our last lesson being very unlucky, I did well on the driving test. I think i'ts who you are as a person that makes you a superb instructor, not just your discipline and your knowledge. I wouldn't have passed it as confidently and as flawlessly as I did without you. You have taught me a lot of valuable lessons, and this time I'm telling you John.. You did well : ) Thank you !
L Plates Driving School knows how to look and keep good people with a lot of driving knowledge and experience.
Thank you John, and all of you guys : ).
Tuesday, 23 April 2019
John was incredibly patient and helpful! He’s very knowledgeable as he realised a few times I had been misinformed from my previous instructor which helped me get things right there after! Because of John I managed to pass my driving test first time so thank you very much for all your help and exceptional guidance John! Brandon. Redhill.
Thursday, 11 April 2019
Learning to drive quite late in life I was apprehensive and not very confident. My instructor Terry Bardsley was fantastic and put me at ease from the 1st lesson to helping me pass my test! Never thought I would do it so glad I went with L Plates Driving School. Grant. Worthing.

I would like to send a huge thank you to my driving instructor, John Leeming. John has been a brilliant instructor who has helped me to correct my driving mistakes and improved my driving skills. He is patient and understanding and never mind repeating things again until I felt confident. He is always punctual and sharing his driving experience with me. Thank you to John who has teaching me to drive safely and responsibly. I would happily recommend John to my friends and family. Regards, Woan Chong. Eastbourne.
I passed my driving test at my very first attempt and with just one minor. This is due largely to hardwork put in by driving instructor, Raj Purba. Raj has an exceptional personality and pays very close attention to minute details. He gives clear and very concise explanations as well as feedback on progress. Clearly, Raj's goal was not just about making me pass the test but it was more to make me become a very good and safe driver overall. Thank you Raj. Andrew. East Grinstead.

Colin was a fantastic driving instructor which was expected as I am the third person in my family to learn with him. He was very patient and flexible with his lessons, particularly when I was nearing my test date. He encouraged me to choose what I felt less confident about and he allowed me to practise these things. We covered many routes around Tunbridge Wells which ensured that I knew what to expect when it came to my driving test. We practised the main routes as well as the tricker routes. Colin was friendly throughout and I would definitely recommend him to a friend! Olivia. Tonbridge.

Colin Dawes was an incredibly instructor! With his friendly approach, driving was stress-free and focused. Especially as the time got closer to the test, Colin was extremely supportive and constructive. He has taught both my sister and I, where we both passed our practical and theory tests first time with very little minors. I would recommend Colin to anyone who is ready to enjoy driving, in a relaxed environment in order to be focused, aware and calm on the roads, where you are given all the knowledge on driving and are able to problem solve.
Thank you Colin! Stephanie. Tunbridge Wells.

I was thrilled to pass my driving test first time with 3 minor's and really enjoyed learning to drive with my instructor john. He was patient and explained everything clearly. I would definitely recommend john to anyone wanting to learn to drive. Rachel. Redhill.
Monday, 4 March 2019
Raj lets you learn at your own pace and seems to know when to push you to achieve your potential and when to give you space to learn from experience. I would recommend him to anyone who is apprehensive about being on the road as I don’t think many instructors would be as patient as he has been with me, thanks Raj! Helen, Horsham.

It took me 20 years to get around to do my driving licence. I have been very lucky to find John Mell at L Plates Driving School. I was feeling lost and uncertain after using a previous driving school, but John gave me all the support and confidence I needed to pass my driving test. It wasn’t just the practical lessons, but L Plates also provide a range of study materials and driving notes. The online study was easy and practical as I could do it in any free time.
I have been very lucky to do my driving with John and I can’t praise him enough. I’m dyslexic so needed additional support, John was a fabulous instructor who was able to keep me calm, he was always prompt and well organised for the lessons, tracking my progress and working out my weaknesses. Aneta. Redhill.
Wednesday, 30 January 2019
Raj is an excellent instructor.... Very patient and highlighting points of my driving where I need to work on, his tips and guidance paid off. I passed my test with only 2 minors. He gives you lots of reference points which is very helpful. I found his teaching style honest, fun and helpful and will forever be grateful for helping me and encouraging me to become a confident driver. Nithya. Horsham.
Tuesday, 29 January 2019
John was an exceptional instructor. He helped me to keep calm in challenging situations, and showed a lot of confidence in my driving. It was easy to learn from John as he was very clear with his instructions and offered lots of help, and he had plenty of patience with me whenever I struggled with anything. Would definitely recommend L Plates, especially John Leeming in the Eastbourne area. Matthew. Hailsham.
Monday, 28 January 2019
I had the pleasure of having John Mell as my driving instructor. John has exceptional mentoring skills (he is a former deputy head of an infants school) and very amiable personality. Very professional, methodical, mindful, composed, kind and willing to help and accommodate your needs, certainly going an extra mile with me on many an occassion. I am sorry for being so demanding customer with him, as my nerves often got the better of me and John certainly rose up to the challenge when that happened. I hope that his future students will prove less challenging than me. Thanks to John's perseverence and the above mentioned qualities I managed to become a confident driver and pass my driving test. I look forward to cruising the roads of Redhill and beyond! Joanna. Redhill.

Passed my test second time, terry was a brilliant instructor very helpful and made me feel at ease behind the wheel would definitely recommend for anyway wanting to learn automatic. Tasha. Brighton.
