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."

Amir Passed today. Paul was a great driving instructor who was able to equip me with the skills I needed to pass. Once again, thankyou to everyone at Clearway Driving. - Amir
Lizzy I feel extremely fortunate to have found Clearway and had Paul as an instructor. He was incredibly patient, always very clear and helped me to feel truly confident behind the wheel. Louise was also really helpful with the build up to starting lessons (and very quick and helpful over email! Paul really took into consideration my situation when it came to lessons and was prepared to sacrifice lots of time over a short-ish period to get me up to speed. Thanks to Paul, I am now on the roads and I couldn't be happier with the service provided by Clearway. I would find it hard to believe that there is a better driving school out there. 10/10 would recommend to anyone! Thank you so much for everything! - Lizzy
