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!

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.

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.

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.
Monday, 1 July 2019
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.

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.

I can't recommend Frank Judah enough - I feel like I really got lucky. He was patient, understanding, encouraged me when I needed to be encouraged and overall just a fantastic incstructor! Tacita. Lancing.

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.

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.

I had Frank Judah as an instructor and he was amazing! I felt very calm and relaxed the whole time I was learning with him, which is amazing as I am a very nervous person. Frank would understand the best way to help you and he made it a very enjoyable experience for me. Definitely worth the money and the high quality of driving I have now gotten to. Passed my test 1st time thanks to him, I would 100% recommend! Shania. Worthing.

Jim was excellent instructor. He was very calm and patient. Taught me everything I needed to know for the exam and even more. I asked him multiple questions about what happens after I get my driving license and he was very helpful. He was never later for our classes and also was very flexible with the times of our classes. Also, he made the lessons enjoyable as we were having conversations. Overall, great experience. Definitely recommend him. Tidzhani. Brighton.

Giles gave me the best experience I possibly could of had. He didn't rush things with me, he made sure that I understand and could completr the areas before moving onto a new one. Giles is also one of the friendly people I now and you can easy get along with him. Thanks you so much Giles for a great experience. Myles. Horsham.
Very good instructor that explained everything clearly whilst not being at all boring. Helpful advice and use of diagrams to explain both maneuvers and complex roundabouts.Lewis. Haywards Heath.
Colin Dawes is such an amazing teacher, he makes everything looks simple and stress free. He's not just a driving instructor, but a friend and a mentor. Thanks a million Colin. Naa. Tonbridge.

First of all I’d like to say a big thanks to John Mell and L Plates for teaching me to drive. I had a fantastic experience while learning and with me being a nervous individual, the very calm and helpful John helped me through and achieve success. Already Recommended to a friend!! Thanks again! Jake. Redhill.
Saturday, 3 November 2018
I would recommend Colin and L-Plates to anyone who wants to learn good driving. Colin is an exceptional teacher. He was very calm and understood my fear and nervousness. He was always very encouraging and worked patiently on all my shortfalls before deciding when I was ready to give the Test. He is very understanding and good in arranging classes and provideTs the flexibility whenever required. Thankyou Colin for all the support. Roma. Tonbridge.

Great driving instructor in Terry Beardsley.. I gave confidence and knowledge on how to drive which I didn't get from my previous instructor.. Had few lessons with Terry Beardsley, and here I am, a successful and a qualified driver.. I am very happy. John. Brighton.
I would like to say a big thank you to Jon and L Plates helping me pass my driving test. I have learnt a lot while having Jon as my instructor. He was knowledgeable, reliable and very helpful. I was especially impressed when Jon took me back as a student after I took time off from learning.
I highly recommend anyone to use L Plates as a driving school. Farai. Shoreham.

Having started some driving lessons roughly 10 years ago, I needed to start again not really knowing my experience levels. I started again with Frank who was able to quickly assess my performance and take me through everything I needed to know. He was very thorough, patient and vastly experienced to handle every situation of learning to drive. I can’t recommend him and L Plates highly enough. Thank you! Ben. Worthing.

I started driving lessons eight months ago and was originally with another local instructor in a manual car. I didn’t enjoy driving and was stressed from the start to finish of each lesson, I wanted to give up learning and thought my dreams of driving around in flashy Lambo where gone forever….. But then a knight in a white Kia Picanto appeared!! he saved me from a life of stagecoach buses!! No more would I be battling the British weather or bribing my other half to pick me up a Mcflurry!
I decided to switch to an automatic and it was the best decision I ever made!. I came across Mark Napier after trying to locate an affordable automatic driving instructor that could work lessons around my full time job and two small children, it was meant to be! Mark is a fantastic driving instructor and I can’t recommend him highly enough. He is extremely patient and understanding and also explained things in a way that even my little old brain could understand! I finally started to enjoy driving and felt determined to continue learning. After taking lessons with Mark for 4 months I passed my test first time! I couldn’t have done it without him as my instructor and I’m extremely grateful for all his hard work.
If you’re after an amazing instructor he’s your guy! Jo. St. Leonards.
Friday, 12 October 2018
I tried manual lessons when I was 18 and hated every moment of it. It took me years and years (14 years to be precise) to finally pluck up the courage to try automatic. And I have to say it was the best decision I've made in my life so far! I finally feel free and have more confidence in myself. I can take my two beautiful children out and have fun. None of this would ever had been possible without the amazing Terry. Driving with Terry was like meeting up with a friend. He is such a fantastic guy, so easygoing and soooo funny! We had a lot of laughs. He made me feel so at ease with everything. I managed to pass my test 1st time with only two faults. I have never felt prouder of myself! But the only down side is I miss seeing Terry :( I still see him regularly driving around on lessons but it's not the same. So Terry if you read this, I miss you dude. Hope the family and Leo are being good to you. Thank you so much for everything. I bet you secretly miss my "sound effects!" Haha. See you around, gimme a toot :) Xx. Maryann. Lancing.
Wednesday, 10 October 2018
Thank you to my brilliant instructor Colin for helping me pass my test! Arranging lessons with Colin was easy as he was very organised and quick to respond. The lessons themselves were well-paced and planned to help me learn and improve in the best way possible. Sometimes I was nervous or not very confident but Colin believed in my ability to drive and always remained patient and calm no matter how many times I made a mistake. I would definitely recommend Colin and L Plates Driving School to anyone thinking of learning to drive. Thank you again Colin for all of your help and advice! Joseph. Tunbridge Wells.

Raj is an excellent instructor, very patient and reliable! Would highly recommend! I’ve past my test today with only 3 minors! Steward. Horsham.
