Sarah Hattam Passed First Time - 4 Minor faults

Woo hoo! Just passed my driving test this week first time with 4 minors.  If you're a nervous driver like I was, then definitely go with Peter Blight as he is very patient and makes you feel totally at ease.  Couldn't have asked for a better instructor and I'm so happy I passed first time.  Thanks Pete!

Janet Zimba  Wow!  I passed my driving test today thanks to Peter Blight.  Words cannot express the way I feel at the moment.  Learning to drive did not always come easy, determination is the moto, always remember that not all five figures are the same### there is a mysterious cycle in human events... to some generations much is is given, and PETER Blight gives you that extra.  The man is a legend who puts his learner first.  Hence with hard work and perseverance from myself and Peter we reached the ultimate goal. 

So if you need an instuctor with patience, understanding and a good sense of humour, friendly then Peter is the instructor for you. xxxxx 
Thanks again Peter for believing in me, being able to drive will change my life.  Janet xxxxxxx

Thank you so much Peter Blight for helping me pass my test first time, with 2 minors! Peter put me in for my test at the perfect time, and I could not have done it without your help.  I’ve come from being so nervous and scared, to being confident and safe on the roads.  Peter is extremely patient, friendly, and calmed me down during the stressful moments.  I can’t recommend him enough. Thank you Peter!

Kirsty Thomas I had 2 AA instructors before my first driving test and failed with 8 minors and 3 majors! So, with only 5 weeks until my retake i decided to find a new, better instructor. Loads of people told me about Peter Blight and couldnt speak highly enough of him! So I gave him a go and it was my best decision ever! As well as being a great instructor, Peter is a lovey person and put up with my frustrated moments, haha. He not only taught me how to pass my test but how to drive in the 'real world' - I couldnt have asked for anymore! I PASSED my second test with only 2 minors! I have never been happier! I cannot thank him enough for transforming me into the driver I am now. Thank you for everything Peter!!!

Kathir Am very excited to pass my test today first time and I would like to thank Peter Blight for helping me in achieving this.  Peter rightly identified my weaknesses and helped throughout in correcting those mistakes.  I wouldn't have passed the test first time without Peter's effort.  I'd certainly recommed Peter to any new learners.

Jyoti Sherchan, Helen Orbidans, Josh Benjamin, Jasmine Al-aidi, Oliver Moore 


Josh Benjamin "Would like to thank Peter Blight for helping me pass my driving test and for being patient while I learnt." 

Josh Benjamin


...Josh passed his driving test on Friday 14th May with five driving faults.  Josh took a break from driving to concentrate on his studies then flew through his test - no problem.  Well done, Josh!  Peter

Jyoti Sherchan Jyoti Sherchan passed her test first first time with 4 driving faults on Thursday 6th May.  Jyoti is Nepalese with little English and drove extremely well to pass her test.  It was also a huge boost for her Ghurkha husband who is away fighting on our behalf in Afghanistan.  Jyoti was a model pupil and thoroughly deserved to pass her test at her first attempt.  As she is still learning English, I hope Jyoti will be able to read this message of congratulations on her well deserved success.  I wish Jyoti all the best in the future and the safe return of her husband  

Helen Orbidans Helen Orbidans also passed her test 1st time with 4 driving faults on 27th April .  I wasn't her first instructor but I was her last!  In Helen case, she was just too, too busy to write her own testimonial so, for the record, this is it.

Jasmine Al-aidi Jasmine Al-aidi another busy lady that passed her test at the second attrmpt with three minors.  A very happy lady to have passed her test in December 2010 with me.


Cartoon Head Oliver Moore: Not even a photo to show of Olliver Moore.  Ollie doesn't much like computers and isn't on Facebook, but he did manage to pass his driving test in November 2010.  It wasn't always easy as Ollie is a great driver but suffered from nerves...  Didn't matter in the end when he got a good test pass.  Well done, Ollie!

20 of March 2009, at 8.03 pm

Peter is a very patient instructor, and has helped me immensely to get over my fear of driving around at more than 5 miles an hour! Learning to drive was not without its difficulties but from the very first lessons I felt relaxed because we were learning at my pace and I slowly became more confident. I thoroughly recommend Peter to anyone! But especially those who are nervous or lack confidence – thanks for all your help Peter, looking forward to my pass plus! 

   Note from Peter: Robyn was my most nervous pupil ever!  She made it through and got her test pass :)
