Excellent driving school! The instructor was calm and friendly while being extremely helpful. They simplified the manoeuvres and were always on time, couldn’t recommend enough!
Get in touch with GSD if you want to become a safe legal driver and ace your test. Instructor is so chill and cool, you will learn so much during your driving process.
I can't recommend this company enough, the instructors are incredibly professional and teach lessons in an intuitive and effective manor. They go out of their way to accommodate your schedule ensuring you have enough lessons to continually grow your skillset. Most importantly I was able to pass my test first time thanks to their guidance.

Massively helpful experience which got me to pass with only 2 minors. This was after 3 previous instructors from other schools and a failed test. They have the right approach in getting you to pick up the right instincts, refining your technique, and getting out on the road driving with minimal help from the instructor. Emphasis is getting test ready then *beyond* test ready which makes for more confident driving and an easier time in the test.

I would highly recommend Get Set Driving if you’re looking for driving lessons! A great driving school with a great instructor. I was very nervous and anxious but my instructor was very patient and made me feel at ease from the first lesson, each lesson was tailored to help me progress in areas I was struggling in every week. My instructor was great at explaining junctions, roundabouts and all the different manoeuvres. He’s very friendly and makes every lesson enjoyable whilst you’re learning. I passed my test with only 3 minors, all with the help of GSD and their great instructors. Again I definitely recommend to anyone looking for lessons!
