What Do Their Pupils Say?

Jack Dennant

5 star driving lessons

Can’t recommend Cowleys enough, the only driving school to be honest with the current waiting times, highly professional manner, and the app is very useful too.

Phil was my instructor, he was incredibly calm throughout, very knowledgeable, worked to my advantages, he was brilliant at calming nerves and quickly built my confidence and skills to take the practical test.

If you get Phil as your instructor, you're in safe hands, he’s an asset to Cowleys, and I can’t thank him enough for his patience and tuition.


5 star driving lessons

I'd highly recommend Cowley's to anyone wanting to learn to drive. My instructor Phil Coatham was excellent - he's knowledgeable, calm and friendly, with a great teaching style. Every lesson was one to look forward to. The resources that Cowley's use to help with theory tests and booking driving tests are also excellent, making the process very straightforward. I couldn't have asked for more!
