JULY - 2018
Passed 1st time today - I said to Tony it was the relaxed way he teaches and if I could bottle his calm id be rich! Thanks for all your help and I will pass your number around at work.
I passed 1st time with Tony this week - 20 hour course and I learnt more than I did with all my other instructors. Tony is grade A 51/51 instructor and I def could tell the difference than with my old instructors, 5 minors YES
Big massive thank you to everyone at A1 for getting me passed 1st time and beating all my mates. 2 minors go me.
OMG OMG I did it, sorry I screamed SO loud when I passed Still cant belive I passed 1st time.

Just got back from Basildon after passing 1st time with A1, I lost my wallet and was £150 short at the start of the course, Tony was a top man and trusted that i would sort it out by the weekend (i've paid it now) Just wanted to let ppl know Tony is well alright Thanks again mate.
I have just got home after a 35 hour course and am over the moon about passing. A big big thank you to all involved in booking my course and room and a special thank you to Tony for all he's done over the last week.
A big thank you to Tony for helping me pass my driving test, with only 4 minors in the end! Really pleased! I had some lessons elsewhere some years ago, but A1 Nationalís were easily the best. Tony has so many positive qualities that make him a brilliant instructor and all-round good guy. This meant I always felt happy and relaxed during my lessons. I would recommend Tony to anyone that wants to learn to drive. Thanks again.

Hi mate just wanted to say thanks again for your help over the weekend and was good to meet you. I'd like it if you could put the below as a recommendation from me on the website 'done 15 hours with Tony was a great pleasure and makes you feel at ease (helps he was a fellow cockney and a right laugh) passed with just 5 minors and thats all down to Tony and his knowledge. Can't thank him enough'

Passed today 3 minors, I was surprised how easy it all seemed after my last lot of lessons a few years ago. Tony said its because he was so good lol. Joking aside he is a top teacher with a cool name and what he dont know about football aint worth knowing ;)
Roundabouts were my BIGGEST fear, 40 hours and as Tony put it I drive like a pro ;) thank you
For years I was worried about learning to drive and within the first hour I thought why did I put it off. Great lessons with a great instructor.
Thank you for putting up with my minor nervous breakdowns every week. My husband thinks you are nuts! It feels so great knowing I can drive now and wanted to say thank you.

PLEASE READ - after 40 lessons with another driving school my old instructor told me I needed 20+ more lessons. My dad had been saying for weeks I was being mugged off but I trusted my old instructor. Eventually my dad booked me in with Tony at A1 National who told me he would have me ready for test in 4 hours true to his word after 2 lots of 2 hours I passed today first time! with 5 minors! yay Thank you so much.

To Tony, cheers mate you got me through it extremley well. You're a quality instructor and a right laugh which helped nerves. I recommend this man to anyone who wishes to take lessons.
I was so pleased when I passed I didn't really say thanks properly. I've calmed down (a bit) now so THANK YOU Tony!
I'd be happy to recommend A1 National as they have helped me out massively! The DSA moved my test date which caused me a big problem as I had come over from France to do the course. Tony managed to find me another test. Which I passed. Thank you ever so much for all your help I am truly grateful!
