just writing to say thanks a million for all your help with getting my
driving test. I can't believe I did so well. I have written a piece below
about your training if you want to use it on your website.
Thanks again and all the best,
I would like to give a huge thankyou to Comfort Driving School and to Daniel
for helping me pass my driving test.
The training was excellent and I would recommend Comfort to absolutely
Before I went to Daniel for lessons, I was extremely nervous behind the
wheel an in truth a really bad driver. I had taken lessons with other
instructors before but never gained any confidence or ability. The problem
was that I could never remember all the small things you were supposed to
do: when to use mirrors, when to change gears etc. etc. and i used to get
panicky all the time. To be honest I thought I would never get my test.
What made Daniel's training different was that, instead of just telling me
what to do, he helped me to understand why I was doing each thing: what I
was looking out for when checking mirrors: the purpose of each gear change
etc. and because of that I started to do these things naturally and I
gradually became more confident and calm.
Daniel is patient but firm in his instruction. He will push you to improve,
make you repeat the manoeuvres that make you nervous or cause you problems
until all elements of driving become second nature to you.
In less than 3 months I went from being a nervous wreck to passing my
driving test with flying colours. In fact I passed with just 3 green faults
on my test.
I have become a competent and confident driver and that is down to the
training of Comfort Driving School.
Again I cannot recommend Daniel highly enough.

Subject: a little feedback from me
What a nice day to wake up to - remembering that I now have my "pretty"
license. I'm really glad that I came a cross an instructor like you as I
like learning things in such way you taught me - critical and straight to
the point. I enjoy driving a lot (not sure if it was noticeable) and I love
learning trix - I could probably just have had a lesson alone for that
matter:). I don't think I told you this, but the day of our first lesson I
hadn't driven at all in three years! So my inital feeling was that - "well I
think I'll be fine as long as I'm taking a few classes". However, I started
to get a bit nervous when hearing all the mistakes I was doing! Yet, as I
said to you in the beginning I have never learned to drive, I have
never ever driven with an instructor. I just did my test with an automatic
in the US (10 minutes around the block), later I bought my car with a stick
shift (that my friend had to drive home as I didn't know) and taught myself
over a weekend - so no wonder I had bad habits!?
So I really must hand it to you, you taught someone how to drive in a few
days. Thanks a lot!
Take care and have a great summer!

Subject: better late than never
sorry i'm late getting back to you was thinking of what to say! Here goes.
Having failed my driving test with another instructor I went on the internet
and saw comfort driving School. It was at the top of the list when looking up a
good driving school. Reading all the testimonials, I thought it was too good to
be true, but I wanted to see for myself.
When I had failed, my test my last instructor was shocked as was I but on my
first lesson wit comfort driving, I was soon, explained and shown where I had
gone wrong. The difference with comfort driving is that they just do not teach
you how to drive a car the instructor insisted on safer driving for life, made
it easy to remember important rules, and made it fun!
When it came to the day of my test, I was nervous but when I started to drive
it turned out to feel so natural it was actually a pleasure to take the
instructor around and show her how good I was.
Thank you Daniel even my mother said that I am a safe driver.

Have been meaning to email you for weeks now to say thank you so much for
helping me to pass my test. Please feel free to use my testimonial on your website:)
After wasting so much money on other driving instructors, I was relieved to
meet with Daniel. I found him to be both professional and friendly and without
a doubt, I would never have passed my test without him! Within minutes of
meeting him, he was able to work out my problem areas. He pinpointed exactly
where I was going wrong but in a constructive rather than critical way.
He told me exactly how to fix them and Im a much better driver as a result.
I found his teaching method fantastic and will continue to recommend him to
anyone that will listen:)

Subject: Got my full license today!
Just got my full license today, passed my driving test on 18th of February this year. I'd
had no driving experience prior to taking lessons with Comfort Driving school, and I mean
NO experience. In the first lesson, on 12th of December I didn't even know where the
clutch or gas or brake is. On the second lesson I was driving on a road, not in the
estate, and I didn't have a car at that time. Overall, I took 16 lessons, and in roughly
two months with ZERO previous experience I was ready and successfully passed my driving
My experience with Daniel was intense and at the same time really enjoyable. His
explanations were really clear and easy to get and he uses some interesting techniques so
you will really remember what he's talking about. Daniel paid attention to every little
aspect of my driving, so I felt that I was not only preparing for an exam, but acquiring
all necessary skills to make my driving safe and comfortable. After his pre-test lessons
(I took three, out of 16 lessons total) during the exam I felt quite competent and calm,
and I passed from the first time!
On a personal level Daniel is a very nice, positive and genuine person, we got on very
well from the very beginning of our lessons.
Not a big thing but also important, Daniel's English is very easy to understand, that was
important for me as I'm from Russia and English is not my native language.
I can and will recommend Daniel and his Comfort Driving school to learners of any level
of driving, don't look farther - he IS what you need!

Subject: Thank you
Daniel, a chara,
I just wanted send you a quick e-mail to say thanks for everything.
With your help, I passed the test first time and I'm very grateful to you.
I couldn't have wished for better training! I was a very nervous driver when
I started but your clear advice, expertise, patience, and positive and
helpful attitude put me at ease straight away. You gave me the confidence
and the knowledge to improve and pushed me when I needed to be pushed. You
set high standards for your students but your methods and your approach to
teaching enable your students to achieve these without feeling pressured or
overwhelmed. The encouragement, expertise and patience in your teaching is
invaluable. I am very, very grateful to you and now feel completely
confident as a driver.
I would recommend Comfort Driving School to anyone. Thanks you so much.

Subject: Thank you
I just wanted to say thank you for getting us both from zero to driving our own car.
If you want to put us in your testimonials, please do. I know people had said it would
change our lives but I never realized how much, and I want to thank you for your patience
and gentle guidance, which for me was invaluable as I was so very frightened of the whole
idea of driving.I never thought I could do it, but thanks to you now we both drive.Next
you will have to teach our daughter.
All the best,
Prune and Brendan Moriarty
