I started my lessons with Alex just before covid hit and finished by passing my test today. Alex is a fantastic... instructor, at not only getting you ready for your test but also ensuring you will be a safe driver when you are on the roads alone. He goes through everything step by step to ensure you are confident in every aspect of driving. I couldn’t possibly recommend the Green Cat driving school any more

I highly recommend Alex and The Green Cat Driving School. I am a qualified driver but had never been on a motorway and... so reached out for the support. Alex was so accommodating and was able to find the time to help me. I felt so at ease and comfortable in what I thought would’ve been a scary environment but I was able to learn so much and now feel safer for having the lesson. Thank you so much for your help Alex 😊read more

I started my journey with Alex last year and felt comfortable from day dot. Every lesson I got the absolute most out... of, jam packed with different stuff to make it fun and different but also learning new stuff and skills each lesson, another plus to this is you’re getting your money’s worth out of every lesson. Alex is so chilled and no matter the question or thought he never makes you feel stupid for asking… no question is a silly question as he would say! I passed first time theory and first time practical and I can honestly say I wouldn’t of been able to do it without Alex being as patient and thorough as he is. I want to thank him for everything he’s done and if you are ever hesitant on who to go with then The Green Cat Driving School is 10000% the school for you! You will not regret it!read more

With Alex’s help I have passed both my theory and driving test first time and cannot thank him enough for everything he has done for me!read more

I cannot recommend The Green Cat Driving School enough. Alex is hugely patient, knowledgable and approachable so made... what was quite a steep learning curve for me a truly enjoyable experience.His approach is not just making sure you pass the practical exam, but that you have the skills to be a competent, safe, and independent driver for life. That is invaluable. I appreciated Alex’s adaptability when teaching - if I was struggling with something he was kind, patient but always had a different approach for us to try. I really felt like the lessons were tailored to me and my situation and that real thought had gone into what we covered and how.Huge thank you for all of your help. I wouldn’t have got there without you and I definitely wouldn’t feel as confident getting into a car by myself without the solid start The Green Cat Driving School has given more

Learning to drive with Alex will be the best decision you make this year! Not only is Alex’s knowledge and... understanding of the road second to none, his nice genuine nature creates a great no pressure environment to learn how to drive comfortably and at your own pace. I looked forward to every lesson, with Alex instilling safety and confidence in my driving; at an affordable rate too! Thanks to Alex, I’ve passed my driving test with only 4 driving faults and will be recommending him to family, friends and anyone considering learning to more

Having started from scratch, with no previous driving experience, in just a few months was able to pass my test first... time with only 3 driving faults! This is down to Alex's excellent teaching process and work ethic complimented by a great knowledge of not only the skills needed to drive but on a personal level with you as a student; with a precise approach to situations based on how you learn best and not a one shoe fits all mentality. This enables you to learn and adapt comfortably in any situation. I would highly recomend Alex to anyone looking to learn to drive, no matter the skills level!read more

Done 30+ hours with Alex and can tell you that he’s patient and very helpful. Often find myself doubting myself and... asking loads of questions. Alex makes sure that I feel confident and knows the answers to most questions and even if he isn’t sure he will stop with you, so that you can find the answer together, so that you’ll know to do in that scenario should it ever arise again. Would deffo recommend Alex! 👍read more

The tuition vehicle is a dual controlled SEAT Ibiza SE Technology, with a manual transmission. The vehicle is supremely maintained, and is always immaculate  both inside and out. Hygiene is always taken seriously, and the interior touch points are cleaned with anti-bacterial products after every lesson, with hand gel sanitiser available to every customer.

To add to the above, we have our own Covid-19 specific safety precautions which we feel are very robust and industry leading. You can find more information about our Covid-19 process, including the risk assessment here.
