I am exceedingly grateful for all the help I received from Cowley’s School of Motoring! Both Phil and Anne- Marie are friendly and helpful. I studied with Phil who was always calm and patient, this really helped me feel at ease at the wheel! -a clear expert in his field. His extra time and effort put in to make sure I passed, as well as looking after the application process made the examination as stress free as possible! I would recommend Cowley’s School of Motoring to anyone.

“After 25 lessons with Cowley Motoring School, I passed my driving test with only 4 driver faults. My instructor was Phil and I could recommend him wholeheartedly. Why? Phil is a great driving instructor. When I met him for the first time, I knew ‘he was the one I was looking for’. He was friendly, kind, patient and was able to create a relaxed atmosphere in the car. Phil has a good sense of humour and I really liked how he used it through the driving lessons. Also, he was able to point out my mistakes gently. I think Phil’s greatest skill was that he could read in my mind. He knew better than me why I made a particular mistake. He didn’t mind to explain something several times and I never felt that he got bored if I tried a particular manoeuvre for 6 times in a row. Phil didn’t teach me rigid methods; his aim was to teach me how to make indistinctively the right decisions. Phil has an outstanding memory and he could remember situations weeks back. He is a well prepared and experienced driving instructor who uses modern technology though his driving lessons. I like the way how he explained different situations (traffic, roundabouts) on his tablet. I’m really grateful to him for booking my driving test after our first driving lesson so I didn’t loose time on that. Phil is a reliable person. We went through several times on the “show me, tell me” questions, so when I started the exam I was sure I knew the right replies. He prepared me for the exam technically and mentally with his practical advice and pushed me ahead when I was down. He coped with my personal circumstances well and offered options; he was flexible. I really hope that he continues this job for at least 9 years more when my children reach the age to learn to drive with him!”
