Mirren from Gorebridge

After 15 months of driving lessons, and a change of instructor, I couldn't thank Martin enough for helping me to pass my test. he helped me sort out my biggest issue, by constantly telling me, and it finally got drummed in. I couldn't recommend anyone more

...

Magdalena from Dalkeith

Love to Drive has a great approach. The company is extremely reliable and professional. Martin (my instructor) focuses more on the positive than the negative, which is very important in building your confidence. I have had many instructors and went through quite a few driving schools before Love to Drive. They were by far the best. Martin is very positive and wants you to enjoy driving. Thanks to him I knew I could do this,  because I started really believing in myself and really Loving to drive. Thank you again. Best company. Best instructor. 5 Star and highly recommend it'

Mia from Newtongrange

Martin is one of the best instructors i have ever come across! He was patient kind and gave me the confidence i needed to drive, A few years prior i had been with another driving company but i felt i was treated as just another statistic rather than having the real attention i needed, because of this i was to scared to drive again. However my first lesson with Martin was a game changer and i realized i enjoyed driving i just needed someone to believe in me and understand my individual learning needs because i am dyslexic and have slight dyspraxia. I would recommend Love to Drive to everyone!.

Zoe from Bonnyrigg passed her driving test after a semi intensive course

Zoe from Bonnyrigg

I had never drove before I took a semi-intensive 30 hour course with Love to Drive and I was ecstatic when I passed within a month! Martin is a brilliant instructor with great prices compared to other companies and he tailors the lessons to fit your ability. He's very easy to get along with and great at helping to boost your confidence!

The duel controls in the car are a real comfort too because you know the car can be stopped if its dangerous and if you keep stalling at a dangerous part of the road martin can step in to help. I 100% would recommend taking lessons with him, thanks Love to Drive!

Grant hadn't driven for years - but passed

Grant from Edinburgh

Well after not doing lessons for about 6 years I was recommended to try Love to Drive! Even after a few 2 hours lesson my instructor Martin knew when I was ready! Well I've now passed! Totally recommend Love to Drive, Martin is always there, always helping you and making sure you feel comfortable! Thank you Love to Drive

Absolutely brilliant guy, I can't recommend highly enough. I was a nervous passenger to start with and he got me through my test first time! Anybody who's thinking about learning to drive, I recommend Love To Drive helped me build the confidence to do it.

Sean, a newly qualified driver

Sean

I went with Love to Drive as as I heard about it through a family friend, it was my second instructor and I found him very relaxing and very easy to get along with. He also put thing in the easiest way so you can understand and if your not sure about anything he is more than happy to keep going over things until you do. I would recommend anyone who wants to learn to drive in a calm relaxing atmosphere to go with Love to Drive.

Aiden from Broomhouse

Was a great experience being taught by Martin, had a great laugh and as soon as I met him felt comfortable in his company. He also explains things in great detail so I could fully understand and if I still didn't understand he would think of different ways to explain it.

He always has a lot of patience and not once did I feel he was getting annoyed. Such a nice laid back guy.

Can also notice that Martin loves his job and enjoys teaching. I would recommend Martin to everyone.

Tommy from Leith learned to drive

Tommy from Leith

I passed my my driving test first time with martin as my instructor. He made me feel very at ease, was very patient and helpful and without his knowledge, experience and help I wouldn't of passed first time. Love to drive is the best driving school that I have used highly recommended

...

Darren from Newcraighall

Martin was highly recommended to me by my friend who had recently passed his test first time. As someone who had never driven a car before I was very apprehensive but martin put me at ease right away, he was very patient with me and if I made a mistake we would always have a laugh about it later on.

I would defiantly recommend Martin if you want to learn to drive.

...

Amy from Wallyford

Would recommend Love to Drive to anyone, always felt comfortable and relaxed in Martins company

Always listened and gave the best advice, explained everything so well and made sure I knew everything there was needed to know.

So grateful to have him get me through my test.

Tommy

Tommy was given our gift voucher for refresher lessons, he says;

When you have to consider driving again after a considerable time away from the road there is no point in getting one of your friends / relatives to take you out as their driving has probably changed over the years to meet the challenges of today. They tend to expect too much and this can lead to friction and worse.

I decided to have an assessment with a fully trained driving instructor, and was lucky enough to have a friend recommend Love to Drive.

Martin my instructor appreciated the fact that I was aware of the basics but ensured I was introduced gradually into the mayhem of today's roads and drivers, relaxed but thorough he took me through the various problems and the driving style which has changed over the years, he also took some time to acquaint me with all the gadgets that make driving so much easier today.

Without Martin's help I literally would be a fish out of water but now I know what to expect and how to cope, the whole experience was enjoyable and at times quiet funny, I really think this is the approach to getting back on the road, which is well worth the outlay.

Jamie recommends Love to Drive

Jamie from Newcraighall

Great value, great lessons defo recommend love to drive to anyone!

...

Shey from Gorgie

Great price!

Fabulous Instructor.

Would definitely recommend to anyone especially if you are a new driver who have never driven before!

...

Dale from Edinburgh

Martin teaches at a rate thats suited to the learner , teaching each skill at the pace required for the learner and not just following a script/book. You learn fast as the teaching methods are great but you dont miss anything out. I Looked forward to your lessons as the instructor is a genuine down to earth guy who is easy to spend 1 hour + plus with, which is different from some instructors as some seem to get a rep for shouting etc .

Best part of my experience would probably be that he taught me so well i passed with only 2 minors first attempt.

...

Karen from Bonnyrigg

I previously had drove with several other companies in the past and I can honestly say that Love to Drive is hands down the best! I was pushed for time due to my theory test expiring, but Martin was so relaxed and showed me how to complete maneuvers (that I had found tricky) with ease. My lessons were fun and gave me the confidence and skills to pass with only one minor fault!!!. I was so lucky that I found him and would recommend to everyone!! Thank you!

...

Peter from Dalkeith

Peter from Dalkeith , Love to drive is a great driving school with a well tempered instructor would could put even the most nervous of learners at easy, One of the key features I liked about the school was the instructors willingness to try and work around the learner.
