Why BLANDFORD Learner Drivers

Chose Independent Driving School.

Phillipa Bartlett, Taunton

Ashley Light, Blandford.

“The main reason I chose Independent Driving School was when I noticed other people’s good reviews and decided to go with them.

My driving instructor was Matt Hitt. It was only last year in September when I wanted to progress and get more independent that I came to Independent Driving School and got given Matt. I’m proud to say I made the right decision.

He was very flexible working around my difficult work pattern and catered to what I was after. A very friendly supportive guy I would recommend him to anyone who is wanting to learn to drive any day. 

If he noticed any mistake, he will guide you through it so it don’t happen a second time… I don’t think I can come up with anything that can be improved really.

I would like to thank Matt for being patient and supportive when it comes to learning to drive.”

Christopher Smith, Taunton

Abi Myall, Blandford.

“The main reason I chose Independent Driving School was because I was looking for an instructor who could develop my driving skills more than my first instructor.

I had Matt as my instructor. He was really nice. Easy to get along with and very friendly!

With Matt I learned that there is so much more to driving than just pressing a pedal. He has taught me so much that I never thought I would need or do.

Whenever I would panic he would prompt me to just stay calm and drive confidently as that’s when I’m best.

I would very much recommend Independent Driving School to everyone looking to pass and drive confidently and correctly, as I’ve noticed of having a previous instructor there is a massive difference.”

They are extremely friendly and flexible with times to suit your needs. So thank you very much independent Driving and Matt! You have been amazing!”

Matthew Reeve, Blandford.

“The main reason I chose Independent Driving School was after a web search I got in contact with them to help me get my license 5 years after a failed test.

Matt was my instructor and he was brilliant in getting me well beyond the standard I’d been before and passing at the first attempt this time around.

His teaching was clear and consistent which was vital for me as I wouldn’t exactly say I’m a natural! I knew the process wasn’t going to be easy but I can’t recommend these guys enough if you’re keen to get on the road and feeling confident.

Thanks again Matt!”

John Corrigan, Taunton

Tom Kennet, Blandford.

“The main reason I chose Independent Driving School was after being impressed by the excellent reviews left on their website.

My instructor was Martin and he was fantastic. He guided me brilliantly, was always supportive when mistakes were made and gave me constructive feedback at all times.

This combined with his humour and kind nature meant lessons were always a pleasure.

I would absolutely recommend Martin to anyone looking to learn to drive. Thanks again Martin!”

Alastair Smith, Taunton.

Charlie Kennet, Blandford.

“The main reason I chose Independent Driving School was because my brother had been with them previously so it would be easy to get an appointment.
My driving instructor was Matt, I passed second time with 1 minor. At first, they do an introductory offer for 10 hours so you can try them out.
Learning to drive was a lot harder than I expected as there was a lot more planning to do. The methods used by my instructor were very helpful as they offered an easy solution to the said problem.
I would recommend the company to others as they have very nice instructors that can help you with any problems you have with driving.
The price may be quite high, but I do believe it is worth the money as the feedback given is very specific and of high quality.”

Ella O’Loughlin, Blandford.

“The main reason I chose Independent Driving was after my Dad spoke to Chrissy on the phone.

I have never really been confident in my driving, but having Chrissy as an instructor was really helpful in improving my confidence.

Chrissy paced the lessons based on what I wanted to do, so gave me the freedom to develop at my own pace. Before my test I was made fully aware of all the potential safety questions and how to answer them fully, preparing me for driving beyond passing the test.

I have recommended Chrissy to my friends prior to my test and I’ll do the same after.”

Debbie Kwong, Taunton

Mia Brash, Blandford.

“The main reason I chose Independent Driving School was after I found out about them through a friend who had also had Darren. I chose to go with them as I could have my lessons from school and closer to home. 

I felt well prepare for my test as I found my lessons very helpful in building my confidence and was pleased when I passed first time.

I would recommend Darren he has a very straight forward approach as well as a good sense of humour and answered all my questions knowledgeable making me feel safe.

Thanks to Darren and Independent Driving School.”

Charlie Evershed, Taunton

Alfie Panchuard, Blandford.

“The main reason I chose Independent Driving School was because they were recommended to me by a family member who had recently passed with them, I was given Matt as my instructor.

It was important for me to have someone who is calm and easy going. Matt was a friendly, reliable instructor who got to know me and worked with my strengths and weaknesses.

I would highly recommend Matt and Independent Driving as a whole.”

Hollie Golding, Taunton.

Marina Powell, Blandford.

“The main reason I chose Independent Driving School was because we knew of the company as a family.

Chrissy was my instructor and was absolutely fabulous! She’s a great teacher and is able to make you feel comfortable behind the wheel.

She’s really good if you’re nervous about taking lessons and wanting a nice calm instructor.

She’s super cool and I would honestly recommend her to anyone! You rock Chrissy!”

David Brawn, Taunton

Todd Penny, Blandford.

The main reason I chose Independent Driving School was due to finding their great reviews.

I was lucky enough to get Martin as my instructor for my intensive course who taught me to drive from start to finish in 5 weeks, great guy, would highly recommend him and Independent Driving to anyone else wanting to learn to drive.”

Georgina Ball, Taunton

Alex Daplyn, Blandford.

“The main reason I chose Independent Driving School was because I found out about them from a former student.

Darren was recommended as I also needed lessons from Wimborne. He was always on time and each lesson was well planned.

When Darren said I should book my test I was happy that I was ready for it and I passed first time.

Darren was a fantastic instructor and I would recommend him to anyone.”

Dan See, Taunton

Liberty Nicholls, Blandford.

“The main reason I chose Independent Driving School was because my mum researched the lessons for me.

I had Chrissy who was a fantastic instructor! I started my lessons with little confidence as a complete beginner – however by the end of my lessons was completely self-aware and confident!

Even in times of self-doubt, she was there to support and motivate in the right direction (literally haha).

Such a great company, with competent and friendly instructors who want to see you succeed in becoming a safe and happy driver.”
