Genuine Thames Driving School Reviews

  • I found my experience with Thames Driving School to be positive! My instructor was always on time and very patient with me, and I passed first time with only 2 minors!! So thumbs up from me!

  • I would like to thank Thames Driving School for the excellent training for practical driving test. The instructor was highly professional, friendly and co-operative and the exercise was fun. I would highly recommend them.


  • Learning to drive with Thames Driving School was the best decision I ever made. I had tried to learn with other schools before and found them to be more expensive and felt they seemed to hold me back and not give me the same opportunity or experience level that my Thames Driving instructor did. I passed my test 1st time with only 4 minor faults and feel confident and qualified to drive independently. I have no hesitation in saying Thames driving school is the best available in the Twickenham and Richmond areas.

  • I really enjoyed my driving lessons which were well structured and tailored to suit me. My instructor was very patient and helped to build my confidence as I developed my driving skills, encouraging me at every stage. I had lessons several years ago and never felt like I was making any progress, giving up before even taking a test. This time round it was a completely different experience, I felt at ease straight away and trusted my instructor. I felt thoroughly prepared for my test and was really pleased to pass first time! Having a really good teacher makes all the difference, and I would definitely recommend Thames Driving School if you want to be a safe and confident driver.


  • This was my third driving school and my driving instructor made me feel relaxed enough to actually enjoy the lessons! I never imagined i would pass first time but thanks to my instructor's enormous patience, encouragement and professionalism I did, so I'm very happy. I would definitely recommend Thames Driving School to anyone.
