Why Learn With Paddy

Paddy is a young, enthusiastic and extremely patient guy who has been on the road since 2005 and has years of driving experience, building up a long life career as a Driving Instructor.

Very easy going and often referred to by pupils as being laid back, calm and collective. Along with a great sense of humour, Paddy makes learning to drive fun!

Average passes per year. With most being 1st time!

The Car

The Car is a 2017 plate Ford Focus ST with a 2.0 litre manual diesel engine with 185bhp. It is the ST3 model, It has a stop start facility, and has an anti-stall system which if the car stalls it’s a much easier and quicker response to get going again once the clutch has been depressed down.

It has all the mod cons, a high build quality car with no squeaks and noises. Fitted with alloy wheels, electric windows, air conditioning, fully heated interior leather seats which are electric, heated front and rear screens, heated door mirrors and fitted with dual controls for your safety.

I do put the radio on quietly towards the later end of your lessons if requested, as when a fully qualified driver it can be very scary going out on your own and even putting the radio on. So I purely do it so you get used to it so it’s not too scary for your first time.

Meet Paddy

Paddy is originally from East Yorkshire, and was born in Hull in 1985. Since then he left college in 2004 to join the British Army and qualified as a vehicle mechanic in the Royal Electrical Mechanical Engineers (REME). He has traveled around the world gaining life experience, spending most of his time in Germany. He left the Army in 2008, where he moved down to the South of England and became an Estate Agent where he met his wife. He did a year as a postman in 2012 where also studied alongside to become a Driving Instructor. Paddy then became a fully qualified Driving Instructor in 2013.

He is a very friendly open and honest character, and really easy to get along with. Paddy loves anything to do with cars, (especially touring cars) exploring the country side, animals and spending time with his children.

Ensured my safe driving whilst giving constructive feedback and points for my driving manoeuvre and style. Also kept me comfortable when in tight situations and answered all my questions when asked.

At first I had my own fears when it came to driving and being on the road, and now I am not only a confident driver but also passed first time! Thanks again Paddy. ��

    5 star review  Paddy is not only a fantastic driving instructor, but a really likeable guy. I passed first time and it's definitely down to his teaching style. He immediately puts you at ease, making you comfortable behind the wheel and knows just when to give you a little comment that boosts your confidence. My lessons were always enjoyable and you could really tell that he cares about his pupil's learning and that made the process of learning to drive hassle free. If you need a knowledgable, friendly and approachable driving instructor, you get that more with this man! Thanks, Paddy!

  • 5 star review  Paddy is an absolute trooper! Haven't met such a nice, genuine, funny guy! Made me feel confident and at ease when driving (even when I was having a bad day). Always having a laugh and joke and not being to serious. I highly recommend him as an instructor if you've have bad experiences with others then PASS WITH PADDY is the man to go to! He will make you feel so comfortable to point where its just like driving around with your friend! 100% could not have chose a better instructor to pass with! Thanks for everything Paddy! 🙂

    5 star review  I found Paddy after I had wanted to start learning closer to home. Paddy was completely welcoming, and instantly friendly. Not only did he help me gain masses of confidence when driving, but he helped me perfect my technique so well I passed with 0 minors. Paddy and I chatted, laughed and spoke honestly about driving and the stresses that come with it. I could not recommend Paddy highly enough as a driving instructor, but also as a person. Best teacher around and I know that I wouldn't have been able to pass without his continued support, which is the most important factor to consider when finding an instructor.
