    Great lessons, Phil is a top instructor and I would book with Wests if I had to do it all again! Thankfully I don't though.

    The best thing about Phil and Wests in general is how well they know Romford. He only took me on the busy roads once he knew I was ready and he made me feel really confident about the whole process. Passed in Goodmayes with only a handful of minors, most of them for driving a little too slowly.

    I had already take 20 lessons in the past with another driving school, however I still pretty inexperienced and kept making silly mistakes. After a few lessons with Phil, he ironed out all my bad habits and he filled me with confidence each time I got behind the wheel. Booked the refresher course and it's one of the best decisions i've ever made.

    Phil is a top bloke, he knows what he's doing and he's worth the money. Passed in 3 months!
