She really gave me the confidence that I needed after a years break from driving with another instructor. I would recommend her to everyone whether you’re a first time learner or just looking for a confidence boost.

I did my driving lessons with Lisa from Topclass  I highly recommend her as a tutor as she communicates well with her students and is easy to get along with. I found lisa easy to understand in the points she was trying to get across and very supportive in every lesson I took. Lisa also listened to any questions I had whilst on our lesson and would always be more than helpful in her response. Another point I’d like to say is that Lisa would ask if there was anything I wanted to do or practise at the start of our lesson in case there was anything I was having problems with or needed extra practise on. I would highly recommend Lisa as an instructor and Top class as a driving school.

I work within a college as a theatre technician and I was so excited to have my driving lessons and then pass my driving test. I started learning to drive with Lisa in April 2015 and within less than 5 months I am a new driver. From my first lesson, Lisa got me sat behind the steering wheel teaching me the basics and then progressing from there. I was so nervous the first time I sat in the drivers seat but Lisa soon put me at ease. She was so calming, friendly and positive in her responses to me when I thought I wasn’t doing it right. I know I have passed my test however I would not of been able to do this without Lisa’s positive approach to teaching. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to learn to drive! Thank you Lisa!

Andy Covers the Maidstone area of kent and has been a DVSA approved Instructor for over 14 years Andy Said…….

“It’s great to know that you’re helping your students gain the experience and confidence that they need to be able to make driving a part of their everyday lives.

I think the key to being a good driving instructor is being able to listen to your pupils. It’s important to listen to their aims, and to adapt the learning experience according to their own abilities and experience.

Learning to drive can be intimidating, and I believe it’s part of my job to make it as stress free and enjoyable as possible. Patience is a big key and I hope that my attitude to the whole experience is key to making my pupils feel comfortable and confident.”

Hi my names Lewis I would like to say a big thanks to my driving instructor Andy from Topclass driving school. Andy was a great help throughout my whole learning experience, even when parts of it got tricky he would ask me my opinions on my own driving, so we could concentrate on the things I needed to touch up on, which really made the lessons relaxed and productive every time. Helpful and supportive to the very end.”

I want to say a huge thank you to my driving instructor Lynne for getting me passed first time! I never thought I would pass first time, but I did with her great help! Driving lessons to me where such a stressful thing before I started with Lynne, I had other driving instructors that really made me doubt myself and my driving ability. She turned this around for me and now I really enjoy driving. She made learning to drive really enjoyable and good fun. She has the most bubbly personality and I would recommend her to anyone who wishes to learn to drive in a safe environment. Being able to drive will make such a big difference in my life, and I can’t thank you enough for getting me passed first time. Really loved me time driving with Lynne and seriously recommend her!! I could not have done it without her. Such a brilliant driving instructor.”  many thanks! Xx

“Top class is a great company to learn to drive with. I chose them for their low prices as well as the clear and informative website. Lynne was the only instructor I have learned with and we got on great. She always encouraged me and motivated me whenever I felt frustrated with myself and always gave good feedback on where to improve. Lynne helps keep the lessons light hearted with funny comments and stories. Her confidence in my ability helped keep me focused and on track. Thanks Lynne. See you for the Pass Plus :)”
