Parents Testimonial
Hi Peter Hope you are well I would just like to personally thank you for believing in Kelly and for never giving up. You said you would stick with her and see it through to the end and you were true to your word. Your patience is unbelievable and your understanding of how to teach Kelly was above and beyond, it has done her confidence the world of good especially in her general day to day life. Thank you a million times over and we hope to see you call round anytime you are passing. Take care and very best wishes Ann.

First Time Pass
After having had lessons with 4 other driving instructors, I was very nervous and lacked confidence behind the wheel. This completely changed with Peter; he was so encouraging, supportive and changed my experience of driving. His attitude made such a difference. I passed my driving test first time. Thank you so much Peter!

ADI Part 3 First Time Pass
I would highly recommend Peter to anyone either wanting to learn to drive or become a driving instructor. Peter's infectious enthusiasm, professionalism, and dedication helped me to pass my Part 3 first time, and I couldn't have done it without him. His knowledge of all things driving is unrivaled, as is his desire to see everyone reach their potential and achieve their goals. The support I have received from Peter throughout my whole Part 3 training was what gave me the confidence to become the driving instructor I am today and pass my Part 3 first time. Thank you, Peter 😊

It’s been a pleasure having Peter as my trainer. He’s enthusiastic, professional and always goes that extra mile for you. He has helped me with my nerves as well as giving me all the tools I needed to pass my test. I’ll keep in mind all the tips he’s giving me, and if I have any 90’s football trivia he’s also my go to guy.

ADI Part 3
I have just passed my ADI Part 3 test following excellent training and coaching with Peter Ray. I found he has a friendly, flexible and professional approach to training which is refreshing, enjoyable and is very beneficial to learning and development too. He was 100% committed to my progress and success and has been massively supportive too. Thank you Peter...I couldn't have had better or more enjoyable training.

Part 3 Pass
Thanks to Peter I am now an approved driving instructor having passed my final qualifying test yesterday. I first met Peter 8 months ago and soon realized that he is totally dedicated and passionate about what he does, whether coaching his learner drivers or his PDI trainees. I honestly believe that I would never have got through this without him. Peter goes above and beyond to ensure his trainees have the best possible support. I would recommend Peter to anyone wanting to learn to drive or who are looking to train as a driving instructor. With his calm, professional attitude, positive thinking, caring personality, excellent coaching skills and a great sense of humour Peter creates a fantastic environment in which to learn, meaning that I always looked forward to my training sessions. I really cannot thank Peter enough!

Passed 1st time.
I would highly recommend Peter and his teaching style for anyone wanting to learn to drive. As a relatively older learner who never believed I would be able to drive I booked a trial lesson with Peter, actually hoping he would say this was not for me. He didn't and I went on to pass my test on the first attempt. Peter has the perfect balance of coaching between being friendly and professional. Knowing that I was extremely nervous he constantly reassured me that safety was always a priority. He steadily built my confidence allowing the lessons to progress at a pace that was suited me. During and after each lesson Peter gives positive feedback. I always felt that any mistakes I made were part of my learning experience and was given the chance to revisit difficult situations until I felt comfortable that I could deal with them safely and correctly in future driving. By the time I took take my test I felt significantly less nervous than I had before my first lessons, knowing that I hadn't just been taught how to drive to pass a test but had been coached with safe driving skills for life. Peter - a huge 'thank you' for everything you have done. Professional, patient, positive, polite, punctual – pass!

Peter is an excellent trainer. I passed my Part 2 with great advice from him. A big credit goes to Peter for being so positive, supportive and encouraging. He is a brilliant instructor and I couldn’t have asked for a better trainer

I passed my test today with one minor all thanks to Peter. He is the calmest, most reasonable and supportive teacher and I owe absolutely everything to him!! If you are looking for a driving teacher I cannot recommend him more.

ADI Part 3
’m delighted to say that, with Peter’s help, I passed my ADI Part 3 test yesterday. I stay at the opposite end of the country to Peter, but met him at my LDC induction and very quickly realised that he would be a great person to help me achieve my Part 3 pass. Peter and I have met up at LDC’s headquarters in Pontefract a few times and the level of training, support, coaching, guidance and encouragement he has given me has been invaluable. Peter is incredibly knowledgeable and always focuses on the positives (even when bringing me round to identifying faults I’ve made) which makes for a very enjoyable learning environment. He has also kept in regular contact over the phone throughout my training which, in my opinion, proves he is a fantastic trainer and really cares about his PDI’s (and pupils) and wants them to pass just as much as they do!!! I can’t recommend Peter highly enough as, without his help, I wouldn’t have been able to do the job I love!!! Thanks Peter & I’m looking forward to another curry in Knottingley next time we meet up at HQ!!!

ADI Part 3
Peter coached me to pass my part 3 instructor training first time and I can’t recommend him enough. He’s an excellent coach, working with me to identify the areas I wanted to improve on, developing my strengths and working on my weaknesses whilst constantly building my confidence. He demonstrated absolute commitment and support, checking in on me when he knew I was feeling a bit wobbly and always going the extra mile.

I was so nervous when I first started but he helped to build my confidence, we always discussed what we were going to focus on in the lesson which made the lessons more enjoyable, he is such a calm and understanding individual, wouldn't have been able to do it without him.
