Tina Rixon, well… what can I say? An absolute diamond of teacher. Very thorough and very precise but so cool, calm and collected and very easy to get on with. I enjoyed being taught by Tina, she made things look very easy for me and we had a great laugh while doing it! I can't recommend her high enough. Thanks Tina and L Plates! Danny. Hailsham.

After countless lessons with other instructors which didn’t work out I finally found Tina!
She helped me finally reach my goal in passing my driving test.
Tina was a great teacher and very calm on our lessons making me feel confident in my ability to drive.
I honestly couldn’t have done it without her, I owe her everything! Alex. Eastbourne.

Jim was an excellent instructor. Jim was so patient and kind through out. Taking time to explain things in a way which would help me to remember them. I found him purely through several people recommending him. Katie. Brighton.

I found John Mell truly a gem of a person disciplined to the minutest detail when it comes down to the point of learning to drive. The biggest issue with learners like me is first to “unlearn” whatever we have learnt so far throughout our years of driving. This is where I found his focused devotion and logical approach in helping me first to get rid of bad reflexes.
Next comes his patience and care no matter how many times I made mistake he remained perfectly calm and composed. I further strengthened me in forgetting mistakes and focus ahead. This is very crucial as multiple things are going at the same time and if a learner just remain fixed at one mistake made, he or she cannot progress during actulndriving experience.
I give entire credit of my success to John Mell and wish him all th best in future and would love to train my son through him in coming days. Shahzad. Redhill.
I am really lucky to find John from L Plates Driving School. I definitely agree with previous review that said he has patience of a saint and nerves of steel. He made me confident behind the wheel with his easy step-by-step guidance of how to drive safely.
I was really impressed with how he took time to make a personalised notes and discuss it together on each and every single lesson, to ensure that we made progress as expected. He also made a 'battle plan' and did some mock tests before my practical test, using the 'favourite routes' used by the examiners in my area.
Thank you John, I wouldn't have passed my practical test without your help. You are an excellent driving instructor and I don't hesitate to recommend you to anyone who needs driving instructor! Rini. Reigate.
I would like to thank my amazing instructor john Mel for all the help and time very calm patient and knowledgeable instructor very ponctual I have been sooo lucky to have such an instructor thank you sooo much john for all your time your help and your instructions that made me pass my driving test first time with just 4 minors fault !!!!!i highly recommend john to everyone.

My experience with L plates and Mark Napier as my driving instructor was very positive. It has taken me a long time to reach this point as I wasn’t a ‘natural’ and I doubted at one point whether I would become a driver. Mark gave me the confidence and solid support to realise this goal and believe that I could. Gaining independence as a driver will make a big difference to all aspects of my life. Mark Napier was very professional and showed a lot of patience and understanding when I was nervous and having difficulty with driving manoeuvres and in general. I would highly recommend L Plates and Mark Napier as an instructor to anyone who is starting their driving journey. Samantha. Hastings.
I had a great instructor guiding me, really learnt a lot in a short amount of time and appreciate all his efforts with me helping me get through it, very calm and gives great advise. Many thanks to Jon!!??. Essa. Eastbourne.
My experience learning with L plates was brilliant, my instructor John Leeming was extremely good from the day I met him up until the day I passed. We covered everything needed in great time and covered anything I also wished to cover in more detail. Thanks for everything John! Elliot. Eastbourne.
I was really nervous about starting up my driving lessons after not doing a lesson for so long; however from a day one Mark made every lesson relaxed and supportive. I couldn’t thank Mark and L plates enough. I would really recommend Mark and L plates for anyone looking to get their licence. Sharon. Hastings.
I came to L plates after discontinuing lessons from another instructor as he was not patient at all, and made me feel worse about my driving. I found Ray Brewster at L plates who I learned with briefly, but he kindly referred me to Jim Eckford when he stopped covering my area. And what a great move this was!, as I finally found an instructor that was a perfect fit for teaching me to drive. Jim could not have been more patient and supportive. He understands learner behaviour, did not once become frustrated with me, and was kind, polite, and a great conversationalist on our journeys. He was also very flexible with duration of lessons and any pick up / drop off locations. Whilst I was chuffed I passed my test (passing on my 2nd attempt with 5 minors), it then dawned on me, I wouldn't have the positive weekly lessons and driving with Jim anymore :( If I had stayed with my first instructor I'm not sure I would enjoy driving as much as I do now. I naturally drive quite fast, and rather than knock it out of me, Jim would advise me and allow me to correct my speed, and encourage me to build up my speed in the right places. L Plates give you good information and booklets to help you pass (passed my theory on 1st attempt), and I'd 100% recommend Jim at L Plates for any learner, whether brand new, or like me, had a few lessons under your belt.
