Many of the instructors who learnt with us have gone on to achieve real success in the field, so you couldn’t be in safer hands!

After researching many different trainers and companies, I found Nayland Driving School. As soon as I met Michael his knowledge professionalism and personality shone through. I enjoyed every training session, Michael knew exactly how to get the best from me, and supported me every step of the way especially when taking my exams.

Keith Cole ADI

Geoff is a brilliant driving instructor! He's very patient and knowledgeable! I have learnt so much during our lessons and I would highly recommend him for ADI training.

Suzanne Death

I started with Michael as my first Trainer. He consistently showed up on time and offered great training for my Part 2. Very observant at my abilities and knew what to work on and involved me in decisions. He was very patient with me despite some poor choices on my part, but this led to discussions on how to improve. Looking forward to work with Michael as a qualified ADI one day.
