“I enjoyed my driving lessons in Banbury, my instructor was patient, understanding and made me feel completely at ease. Right from the beginning I knew I was well matched with the instructor. I was a nervous person around other people and so Nearway did a very good job in putting me with the right person from the start. 

Thank you so much for helping me pass my driving test 1st time. Driving will give me the freedom I needed to get to and from the village I live in whenever I want without relying on anyone else or public transport.”

Barbara Foster

I would like to say thank you to this brilliant driving instructor Gurdev Bhanot. After I failed my test 3 times in Oxford he show me all mistakes on the road and how much I have to learn. I drive now and I feel safe on the road. He is a top man and works hard teaching people how to drive on the road. Thank you thank you Gurdev and NearWay driver training.

“Thank you Neil I never thought I would see the day when I passed my driving test. I couldn’t have had a better instructor”
