I had a great time learning to drive with Dave and have already recommended him to everyone I know that’s looking to learn to drive, I hugely appreciate how calm he was despite my many mistakes and how fun he was to drive around with too.

Brooke Hunter - April 2022

Could not recommend Dave enough, he’s been an amazing instructor and really knows how to help with your nerves and worries, whenever I had a question for him he would always answer in a way which was understandable for me, if I had any worries about any roundabouts he would help clarify the correct lanes to be in for the different directions, been amazing to learn with him and from day one I felt comfortable and felt it was right being taught by him!

Beth Mourato - March 2022

When I initially started driving I was nervous to try again, I’d got close to my test when I was a teenager but was involved in a crash with someone else at the wheel and it shook my confidence for years. Returning to driving in my late twenties, I was sure I’d feel all those feelings again but Dave was a delight to drive with. He’s calm, reassuring and gives you the right amount of freedom without prompting constantly so you begin to trust yourself to make decisions behind the wheel. Driving was never something I felt insecure about, my confidence flourished and I achieved my pass thanks to Dave! Thank you.

I had a great experience with Dave- he explains everything very well and makes you feel very at ease. He is also an incredibly nice person, which makes lessons a real pleasure. I couldn’t have asked for a better instructor and the only bad thing about passing first time is not having lessons anymore!

Sophie Stewardson – July 2021
After having had many disruptions over the last year, Dave has helped me tremendously with my driving experience and has managed to keep his lessons refreshing.

I have nothing but good things to say for DriveSG!

Will Woodhall – June 2021
I cannot put into few words how much I recommend Dave as a driving instructor. His humble demeanour and helpful positive tips throughout your journey are not only supportive, but make the experience a comfortable one. With his patience and guidance he will teach you the skills to become a safe driver. Dave was previously my brothers instructor who passed with flying colours, and now today 14th June I’m pleased to say I passed first time with one minor fault. All thanks to Dave’s professionalism and support, thanks again Dave !

I was super anxious about learning to drive but after dave taught my sister, brother and auntie I thought he would be good to go with.

Olivia Durley - Febuary 2019
I was so nervous about the idea of learning to drive and was almost relieved when I saw how long Dave’s waiting list was as it meant I could put it off. In my first lesson I felt I could put all my trust in Dave straight away - he’s been so calm, flexible and easy to talk to throughout all my lessons since. I ended up with a first time pass which I never imagined in a million years would happen! Dave really is such a lovely driving instructor who genuinely cares and wants to help you as much as he can and I couldn’t recommend him more.

Go with Dave - a brilliant instructor who I highly recommend! When I first contacted Dave he had a very long waiting list and now I know why.

I would without a doubt recommend Dave Dyer as the best driving instructor around.

Gemma Lee - July 2017
Absolutely Brilliant instructor! So patient and encouraging and has a wonderful temperament. I had fun on my lessons and always felt like I was learning and being challenged as well as consistently practising manoeuvres and test routes. He really took that time to assess what I needed to work on and focus on that. I was given a great choice of lesson times too so I could fit it around my shift work. I passed first time and I was amazed how calm and ready I felt before the test thanks to Dave's excellent teaching. I literally cannot recommend him enough. Book him, book him now :)


Martin Bak - June 2017
I cannot be more grateful for my friends for recommending Dave as a driving instructor. On the first lesson I instantly felt confident as Dave has a professional but friendly, down to earth attitude. Throughout the months of driving, I never felt that my potential was held back as Dave wasn't trying to waste time, but he also didn't rush me. The phase of the driving was just right to me, as an individual. This proves his experience and adaptability. Also as a full time student, it was hard for me to find free time to practice, but Dave was willing to give me flexible hours. I would most definitely recommend him to anyone, with any level of experience.


Karen Pegg - May 2017
After a lot of research I chose to learn to drive with SG. Initially I was very nervous but Dave immediately put me at ease, quickly adapting to my style of learning with professionalism, patience and humour. I thoroughly enjoyed the learning process and never once felt overly stressed or pressured. Dave was fully booked when I first contacted him but having recently passed my test on the first attempt with only one minor, I definitely think he was worth the wait. 10/10

Charlea, Stevenage - March 2017
Dave is a fantastic teacher and a genuinely lovely person. I was very nervous and anxious to start but he put me at ease straight away. Lessons were always fun and I never felt stressed or under pressure, he taught me everything in my own pace. I would recommend him to everyone as he helped me pass first time!


Ryan - March 2017

Dave's a superb driving instructor. He's easy to get along with, always calm and is brilliant at analysing what you did well and what you didn't do so well on to be able to correct it. Overall an excellent instructor and person.


Rosie Field - Feb 2017

Ileisha - Feb 2017
Really enjoyed learning how to drive with Dave! Brilliant instructor,always giving good advice in order to achieve my full license. Would definitely recommend to family and friends!


Abigail Twomey - Feb 2017
When I first started learning to drive, I was intimidated by the idea of controlling such a seemingly complex vehicle as a car, but I was pleasantly surprised to discover that Dave would peacefully teach me how to drive with confidence. He never got angry or impatient, and he put up with what I think must have been a lot of silly mistakes I made along the way. He will understand if you have never driven before and will allow you to build your confidence at your own pace if you need it, rather than stressfully rushing you towards taking the test! Whether you're scared to drive or eager, Dave is a great choice for anyone.


Sebastian Venter - Feb 2017
Dave was as good an instructor as I could ever have hoped for. He knows exactly what he is doing and makes the whole experience of learning very relaxing. After 10 hours of lessons over a month I passed my test on my first attempt!

Learning to drive with Dave was a great experience for me, he's really friendly and down to earth, and is very patient. He is ready to point out mistakes and teach you how to be a better driver; he is equally ready to give praise when you're doing well which is encouraging and comforting. You learn a lot in a very short space of time and I would highly recommend him as a driving instructor.

He makes you feel very comfortable by injecting confidence within you, and he is able to give great advice.Learning to drive with Dave has been a pleasure and i can not reccomend him highly enough, everything a driving instructor should be. Thank You Dave.


Isaac Barkway - June 2015
Before I started learning, I'd heard horror stories about stalling, manouvours, and failed tests - but from my first lesson with Drive SG it was clear I didn't need to be worried. Dave's expert knowledge and friendly-but-professional approach to teaching meant I felt safe and confident every step of the way, and before I knew it I'd passed first time was on my way home from the test centre, certificate in hand!


David Lewinton - May 2015
You really couldn't ask for a better instructor if you want to pass with confidence! I passed first time with Dave because the lessons were structured, planned and in no time at all your'e driving on back from the test centre and taking a photo with a certificate!


Melissa  - April 2015
Before my first lesson I was a little apprehensive but Dave’s calming approach and excellent way of explaining things put me at ease and I saw my driving ability increasing quickly. When my test came I was well prepared and there weren’t any surprises as Dave had covered exactly what to expect. Thanks to Dave’s amazing teaching I passed first time and am very grateful to him. I would definitely recommend Drive SG to anyone looking for lessons.


Angela Marston - April 2015
I passed my test three weeks ago, in no small part thanks to Dave DriveSG. He is the most patient, fun and knowledgable instructor I have worked with. I now consider him a friend and someone I am in debited to for the rest of my life. He helped me changed my life for the better. Thanks Dave. I was a very nervous learner and he worked with me to overcome my fears and now I have my license.


Jack Jones - April 2015
I had my test a long time ago now but Dave was a great instuctor! Every single lesson was helpful and I was able to pass really quickly! I'm so grateful for everything!


Rob, Letchworth - March 2015
I would highly recommend Dave if you are wanting to learn to drive. Ive had many false starts over the years but with Dave not only did I pass in a quick timeframe but I also enjoyed the lessons. He has a fantastic relaxed teaching style that really helped me as an older learner. Thanks for all your help Dave!

Alice - March 2015
Dave is a great driving instructor, always clear with his discriptions of how to do things and understanding when things don't quite go the way they were meant to. I cannot recommend him enough. Thnak you very much!


Hannah - Feb 2015
Dave always made me feel comfortable and confident in driving. I recommend him to any learner driver.


Dominic Bowles - Jan 2015
I cannot speak highly enough about Dave, he was a great driving instructor who was intrumental in helping me to pass my test. Clear and helpful guidance. Start learning with Dave - you are guaranteed success!


Yuliya Jefisova - Jan2015
I am not a native English speaker and I thought it can be difficult to learn and perceive driving instructions, however Dave was so patient at all the times and he always gave and directed me so clearly that it was a pleasure taking lessons with him.

During my lessons, Dave would always be calm and supportive and I didn't feel under pressure. He is a brilliant teacher. I am very grateful for everything he taught me !

Highly recommended .


Edward H. Sharma - Jan 2015
Dave SG is with without a doubt one of the best instructors in Hertfordshire. He made it a quick, easy process and had me feeling extremely confident, sitting in the drivers seat, both in front of him and the examiner. If it wasn't for him, i wouldn't have passed first time. I can not praise him enough! If you are looking to pass within a certain period of time, I would highly recommend Dave for the job. Cheers Dave.


Andy Traynor - Dec 2014
Quality of teaching was second to none. Dave has a very calming and resassuring influence on learners, and for me this helped develop my confidence from day 1! I am very grateful for this life skill that Dave has helped me gain. Dave was reccomended to me, and I too most certainly reccomend his services!


Ciaran Feehan - Nov 2014
Great teacher. Informative and calm, picks up on everything and generally effective teaching. Made sure that when I took the test I was confident on everything, and got me a first try pass. 10/10


Laura Roberts - Oct 2014
I was so nervous about learning to drive and so I had left doing so until I reached my thirties. I thought I would have one lesson and not take any more. However, in Dave I found an instructor who has endless patience, is kind and is also very encouraging.

During my lessons, Dave would always be calm and supportive and I didn't feel under pressure. He is a great listener and a brilliant teacher.

I can not recommend Dave highly enough!

Edward, Royston - Oct 2014
Absolutely chuffed that I chose Drive SG as my driving school. Every lesson felt important and effective with Drive SG, due to Dave's way of explaning things, calmness and understanding. Dave made me feel like a confident driver and my whole learning experience was so much easier because of it.


Caroline Willis - Aug 2014
At first I was a very nervous driver and the whole idea of driving seemed a very scary prospect to me. Dave helped me to improve my confidence and most of all enjoy driving, with countless laughs along the way! I am grateful to Dave and his tuition in helping me to achieve a first time pass and would recommend him to anyone wanting to enjoy learning to drive.


Rebecca vd Westhuizen - July 2014
Dave is a great instructor. I am so glad that I chose him to be my instructor, and cannot recommend him highly enough. As an older learner I was extreamly nervous starting out and thought I would continue to be a nervous driver. Dave's calm and friendly manner put me right at ease from the start and gave me the confidence I needed. I would not have passed without Dave's method of teaching or his confidence in me. From day 1 to test day - Dave has been a great support and a great instructor. If you want to learn how to drive well and pass your test - Dave is your best option **Highly Recommended**


Susma Dura - June 2014
I would definitely recommend Dave as he's a great driving instructor. Very friendly, patient, calm, reliable and encouraging, which made me feel at ease in my lessons. It has been a good driving experience learning with Dave and there is no-one else better to learn with than him. :)


Colin Eaton - June 2014
Dave is a great driving instructor, he is very patient and encouraging. He helped me build my confidence in driving. He is very easy to talk to, and he is very good at teaching the skills you need for driving. Anyone who wants to learn to drive should choose Dave. Thanks Dave.


Lucinda Stallard - May 2014
Dave was a great teacher, always friendly, calm and reassuring. He was very patient and made me feel relaxed while learning to drive, which initially I was quite nervous about. He explained things well and slowly so that I understood and he was very encouraging. He made it easy to ask him to go over anything I was unsure about and gave me advice on where to improve as well as praising anything I did well. I highly recommend Dave to anyone who wants to learn to drive. Thanks for everything Dave :)


Anna - May 2014

Dave is a fantastic teacher! From the very first lesson and up to test day Dave was always very calm, encouraging and friendly, he had a great way of explaining and helping me conquer the parts of learning to drive I initially found difficult to grasp. Before my test I was sure I wouldn't pass but Dave was very reassuring and helped give me confidence, I passed first time and would not have been able to do it without Dave!

When I started looking for an instructor I found it difficult to choose who to learn with, I chose Dave because I saw a comment on here from someone I knew and I am very glad I made that choice – I would recommend Dave to anyone think about learning to drive.


Georgie White - April 2014

Where to start, Dave is a fantastic teacher! He is patient and encouraging, always providing advice and knowledge to ensure you get the best out of your lessons. Whenever I got nervous or was unsure about a decision to make whilst driving he helped me in a calming and friendly way. Dave has made learning to drive very enjoyable and am so glad to have passed my test!


Stevie Gibbs - April 2014
The best thing about Dave is the fact that from the second you meet him he makes you feel so relaxed. He never once in any lesson raised his voice and was always interested in what you were up to. Dave has a way of teaching that stops you from being nervous completely. He's also very empathetic. When I passed he was so happy for me which was really nice :) I'd recommend Dave to anyone, particualry those most nervous. Thanks Dave! :)


Leanne - April 2014
Dave made me feel very calm on all my lesson i had with him, i cannot recommend him highly enought. I always enjoyed my lessons and never felt scared or unprepared for anything as dave explains things in an easy way. Thank you again dave! :)


Sam Marsden - Jan 2014
I cannot recommend Dave highly enough, he is an excellent driving instructor. Dave not only prepared me thoroughly for my test, he also managed to make it an enjoyable process. Dave's easy going and friendly approach is massively reassuring and he creates an excellent environment in which to learn. Dave has an excellent way of explaining things and is very patient, so it is never a problem to ask him to go over something again.

If you want to learn how to drive and have the best possible chance of passing your test, look no further than Drive SG.


Eleanor Abbiss - Jan 2014
Dave was a brilliant instructor even when i went around the roundabout the wrong way! he didnt shout and i have now passed my test and it is down to dave thank you:)


Chloe Fletcher - Jan 2014
Dave was a wonderful instructor. Was constantly patient and always calm.. even on the bad lessons.He praised me when i did well and was explained how i could improve.If he's capable of helping me to pass my test first time, he can make any pass.Will definitely be reccomending Dave to new learners.


Sheila Hart - Nov 2013
I was very nervous to learn to drive at the age of 33 and didn't think I would ever be able to drive and pass the test. When I first met Dave, I felt very comfortable and at ease and he was very friendly which made the learning process easier and less stressful. Dave was not only my instructor but I felt I had a friend to have a good moan to about work, life and not being able to pass the test. Dave was a fantastic listener and helped me build my confidence behind the wheels.Dave has a patient of a saint and I couldn't have asked for a better driving instructor.


 Jill Campbell - Nov 2013
I hadn't driven for 12 years & was very nervous about driving again. I booked refresher lessons with Dave & couldn't have got a better instructor. He is so calm with a great sense of humour, so I didn't feel stupid kangarooing along on the first lesson! It's not just the operation of the car, he helps you to see potential hazards & think about your surroundings when driving. After 5 lessons I am now ready to face the driving world again, something I thought I would never do. I would recommend taking refresher lessons with Dave to anyone like me who is an older, reluctant, nervous or out of practise driver.


Emma Palmer - Sept 2013
Dave was an absolute brilliant driving instructor, fully putting up with all of my moaning and worrying about not being able to do it! He makes you feel relaxed and at ease, encouraging you all the time and he never gets angry if you make a mistake! I was a really nervous driver all through my lessons but with Dave's help I managed to pass first time, thanks Dave!


Bethany - Aug 2013
Dave has been such a brilliant instructor for me, from the moment I first sat in the driver's seat to today when I passed my test! He's been so friendly, calm and genuine every step of the way, making the whole experience of learning to drive so much easier and I'm very grateful for everything he's taught me!


Bradley - July 2013
Dave was a great driving instructor and I would definitely recommend him to any learners out there. He was always on time to lessons and was always very calm and patient, which made me feel very confident driving with him. He was also able to motivate me well and gave me confidence that I was able to pass my test. Thanks a lot Dave!


Molly Taylor - July 2013
Dave was the best driving instuctor I could have wished for. Every lesson was very productive but without feeling rushed. Dave was always really supportive and I cant thank him enough for helping me pass my test three weeks after turning 17. He is a lovely man and a brilliant instructor. I wish you the best for the future Dave!


Sarah Richards  - July 2013
Dave was a great driving instructor, and he always supported me during my lessons. He made learning to drive easy, and always gave me advice on how to improve and how well he thought I was doing, and from being told this it made me more confident during my test.


Jade - July 2013
I would just like to thank you on getting me through my driving test and supporting me all the way through it.  Your a wonderful man and a great driving instructor I can't thank you enough, all the best!


Alice Bishop - June 2013

Even though I had never driven before I felt totally relaxed in my lessons with Dave, which, for a first time driver is a major bonus. Dave was very proffessional, he always arrived on time, never let me down and gave me the confidence I needed to pass my test. Dave is a really nice guy and I'm very pleased I picked him when going through the minefield of choosing a driving instructor. I would without hesitation recomend Dave as an instructor,


yoandrzej joachimowicz - May 2013
I was looking for driving instructor for couple of days.. One day i was walking a street in Stevenage and I saw Dave white car - so i finally decided to give it a go. Before my first driving lesson - I didn't have any previous driving experience - so i felt bit excited and nervous about it and Dave made it looks simple and fun. He's a great teacher - whenever i was unsure or lost - he always put me back into right track. Besides all of that, he's a man with a great sense of humour, and knows how to raise good spirit. I passed my practical test on first attempt - and with no doubt - it wouldn't happen without your lead Dave! Thanks for achieving dreams, and good luck in future!


Tom - April 2013
As I’m getting in to my twenties I was worried I was going to end up as a 40-year-old driving virgin. After ringing around a few instructors I

was recommended Dave and straight away his friendly and approachable phone manner showed me he was the right man for the job.

Having never driven a car before I didn’t know my windscreen washer reservoir from my elbow but he showed me all the basics and progressed each lesson at the speed that was right for me.

Always calm, professional, organised and on time, his hard work and busy schedule are a testament to his talent as an instructor and I’d readily recommend him to all my mates (if they didn’t all already know how to drive). Keep up the good work Dave, it’s been a pleasure.


Neil, Stevenage - April 2013
Learning to drive can be a very daunting and traumatic experience for most people, but Dave brought a very human, kind and patient approach to it. Making sessions relaxed, relevant and more importantly varied to different situations Dave really guided, coached and encouraged me to become an accomplished driver in very little time and very little expense. I would passionately recommend Dave and DriveSG as the school of choice and feel sure that after any lessons with him you will certainly agree. Thank you so much for everything Dave, great job.

Jonny Whitmill  - Feb 2013
I was a tad nervous with the prospect of learning to drive but Dave immediately put me at ease. The lessons were relaxed and enjoyable. Dave is easy to talk to and get along with during the lessons. The technical aspects of learning to drive were made simple with easy instructions. I would advise everyone to learn to drive with Dave, he helped me to get a great first time pass! Cheers Dave! I will see you soon for the advanced driving!


Emily - Feb 2013
Dave was calm and relaxed during driving lessons, which made them enjoyable. Learning to drive has gone from being a scary concept to becoming something fun. I'm so glad he was my driving instructor and I would recommend. Thanks Dave!


Eleanor Thompson - Feb 2013
Help and advice from Dave is always clear and easy to follow, which makes grasping difficult concepts under pressure much easier. He is always alert and ready to point out mistakes, but equally keen to praise, and as a result, lessons are very productive. Dave's calm, cheerful approach makes learning to drive as stress free as is possible, and thorough preparation means you know exactly what to expect in your test. Thank you Dave!


Ben - Jan 2013
I just passed my test today Dave is a grate instructor always on time for my lessions and made lessions fun. He never shouts at you if you mess up and he makes you belive you can do it. If you are starting to think about driving you cant go wrong with Dave. Thank you for everthing Dave u will not be disappointed! Thanks Dave :-)


Ciaran Lumsden - Jan 2013
Dave was a great instructor and always made lessons fun, I had experience from two different instructors and Dave was definitely calmer, more relaxed, and looking to make me the best possible driver. He was always on time, and never keen to end lessons, whilst being cheaper than nearly all other driving instructors. I would fully recommend Drive SG.


Beth Traynor - Dec 2012
Dave is a fantastic driving instructor, and one of the most significant things was that he is calm and patient, which really helps with the nerves in the first few lessons. Thanks a lot Dave, I'm glad I chose to go with Drive SG, as he helped me to pass first time!


Sapphia - Nov 2012
I've recently passed with Dave. I think he is an amazing driving instructor and would recommend him to anyone! He was calm, patient and very chilled out. He made me feel comfortable and confident....  So thank you very much Dave!!


Will Smith - Nov 2012
Dave always showed enthusiasm from the first lesson, right down to the last lesson. He made learning to drive a fun, easy and unforgettable experience. He gave me the confidence and motivation to drive and I thank you for that, Dave!


daniel - Aug 2012
After taking a year out from learn to drive, I was looking for a new instructor when a friend recommed dave. Dave is a great instuctor and teach you to drive safely without getting angry if you do something wrong. He is also a bit of a joker. Thanks dave for getting me throught my test.


Ken - May 2012
Having passed my driving test a few years ago and having not driven since, it was necessary for me to learn everything from scratch. I was amazed to find that, only a few hours of relaxed and friendly tuition have given me the technique and confidence to go out and start driving on my own.


Anna - May 2012
I've had many driving instructors and by far Dave is the best one! he is so friendly you forget about the nerves. He wont shout at you even if you do almost crash! and he doesn't spend hours going through the books he lets you drive!  thank you Dave!


Dan - March 2012
Being able to drive gives a person freedom and independence and driving is a skill Dave teaches extremely well during his lessons. Confidence is a key aspect when learning to drive and Dave builds confidence through his willingness to converse with you while driving, no matter what the subject whether it be moaning about how rubbish your week has been or aspects of driving, and also through the encouragement and calmness he offers when something goes wrong during a lesson. My aim was always to pass my test by the summer and through Dave’s excellent teaching methods I was able to complete this aim with confidence, enjoyment and months to spare. I would recommend Dave to anyone looking learn. Thanks again Dave.


Carl, Stevenage -  Feb 2012
Dave is a brilliant Instructor, providing comfortable and reassuring surroundings making learning to drive a whole lot easier and rewarding. Learning to drive a little older than most meant I wanted to learn quickly and take my test as soon as possible, and I couldnt have asked more of Dave for making that happen.  Dave is flexible and always tries his best to work around your schedule. Dave strips learning to drive right ot the basics and progresses you up from there systematically to ensure you are confident with every aspect, even providing reassurance to make my test a little less nerve racking. Dave is honest and has a good sense of humour so at least when you muck up, you can have a good laugh about it. I would highly recommend Dave to anybody, his brilliant teaching style got me behind a wheel of my car with a full license quickly, and meant I felt confident driving for the first time on my own knowing that I had a wealth of driving ability behind me...and the best bit, you don't even get told off when you have to cancel a lesson!!!


Nurul - Feb 2012
Dave is a great instuctor and made me feel at ease during all my lessons, he always works hard and takes instructing seriously but makes it fun at the same time. I would recommend Dave to anyone looking for a good driving instructor. :)


Daryl Fensome - Feb 2012
just recently passed my driving test all thanks to dave, he never put any pressure on me, and just kept it a cool and carm expeirence during the lesson would recommended him to anyone looking to learn to drive. thanks alot dave :)
