"I had failed two previous tests with a different instructor, one being my own fault and the other his. So I decided to look somewhere else. My cousin had used Lendrums and had success. Matt Gibbs was my instructor and from the outset I knew he would be great to learn from, he taught me new techniques that were much easier for me to understand. I managed to pass first time with him with only one minor. I would highly recommend Lendrums and Matt Gibbs."

Chloe - Salisbury
I was tutored my Phil at Lendrums and passed my test with two minors. His teaching style gave me the confidence on the road that I needed and he ensured I was able to ace reverse parking! I had the freedom in my lessons to request what I wanted to practice which made me feel relaxed and confident. Phil has loads of experience which shows and I will definitely be booking in for a motorway lesson.
