Paul Kirkpatrick says...

"I believe that being able to drive is one of the most valuable skills anyone can acquire and that being taught how to be a safe driver for life is more important than just passing the test"

"My goal is to provide the best tuition I can whilst never forgetting that everyone is an individual with different abilities and needs."

"I also aim to make the lessons I give enjoyable and relaxed because I believe that people learn more effectively when they enjoy themselves and aren't feeling pressured!"

"Customer service is an absolute priority for me and I believe in treating pupils as I would like to be treated myself."

"I am friendly, patient and reliable and I am committed to giving the best possible tuition at a fair price. I get a real kick out of sharing in my customers' achievements and successes and I'd be delighted to add you to my growing list of successful students."

"I am a member of the Institute of Advanced Motorists and have passed the IAM's Advanced Test. This has given me additional skills and knowledge which I can pass on to my customers, helping them to become more confident, competent and considerate. These skills all work towards making driving both enjoyable and safe."

Comments from some of Paul Kirkpatrick's customers

Camilla Thanks so much to Paul at Clearway Driver Training for the expert driving tuition. Learning to drive during the COVID crisis has not been easy with lessons postponed and exams cancelled. On the day of the test it was snowing! However after only 9 lessons and lots of practise with my mum I passed! could not be more proud of myself. I would recommend Paul as an instructor he was very patient, and put me at ease straight away. - Camilla
