Martin Schultz - 20/01/2017 -Booked driving lessons in Ilford with Wise Driver and I really enjoyed my time with them. My driving instructor was friendly, really relaxed and very patient with me. I needed lot of time and he didn't rush. I struggled with the hazard perception but slowly he got me up to a good standard, Passed in 6 months too.Tom Perri - 31/01/2017 -My previous driving instructor was not the best so I decided to find another driving instructor instead. I contact Wise Driver and they were really pleasant and professional so that gave me a lot of confidence. Once I started my driving lessons with Mahesh, it was clear he knew his stuff. He had me on the back roads first to get me used to the car's controls before I started tackling the busy roads.
He's very patient and super reliable too, so all in all no complaints.Jim Garret - 08/02/2017 -Passed first time thanks to Mahesh and the Wize Driver team. I got on well with him and can't thank him enough. It took me a while to get to test standard but that's because I kept taking breaks between lessons. Loved his simple explanations and wealth of experience.
Emma Harris - 18/02/2017 -I live in Ilford and booked driving lessons with Wise Driver after reading the testimonial page on their website. They had lots of reviews from other students and I think that said a lot about the driving school. I realised from my first lesson that the standard of teaching was going to be good. Mahesh is a great instructor he has lots of knowledge and patience as well. Would recommend if asked.
