DRIVING ACADEMY

Feedback - 2009

I am very grateful to Rock Driving Academy and could not recommend them more highly.  

Thanks to Kieron’s hard work I was able to pass my test first time in December 2009.
Kieron had infinite patience especially since I was a very nervous driver and had started to feel I would never be ready for my driving test.  However Kieron ensured I had plenty of practice in the areas where I was weakest and he boosted my confidence in my own ability. His determination to ensure I ended up as a safe licensed driver at times was stronger than my own and I am forever grateful that he kept me going at the times I felt frustrated with my own progress or wanted to give up.
The price of the lessons is both reasonable and competitive, the car always drives easily and is spotlessly clean and the quality of the tutoring is second to none.  I would especially recommend Rock Driving School to any nervous or hesitant drivers as Kieron’s teaching style and patience is perfectly suited to students who want to work at a pace they are comfortable with instead of feeling like they are being pushed through the learning process.

Kieron is a great instructor. He helped me to feel relaxed behind the wheel right from the start as he always remains calm, patient and professional even in the most testing of circumstances! On top of that he is easy to get along with and has a good sense of humour which made the lessons a lot less stressful. I always felt like I was making good progress under Kieron, and even if I had a bad lesson he always understood where the problems were and addressed them constructively. The only problem I found with Kieron is that he is Coventry City fan, but I guess no one is perfect!! Thanks for everything Kieron, all the best.

At 37 years old I had almost forgotten about wanting to learn to drive and adjusted my lifestyle accordingly, then a great job opportunity came to me, too good to ignore, but which required that I drove....

Initially I was very keen to fulfil the requirements of the job and pass my test within weeks. 
I searched for local instructors online and found Kieron's website with all the positive feedback, this led me to want to try him.

Soon I realised that passing within weeks is exceptional not normal, and Keiron helped me to focus on the most important task....learning to drive well enough to be able to pass my test, and then be able to drive safely beyond that, and not worry about other pressures.

Keiron is an extremely patient, skilled and friendly instructor, who maintains a great focus on his pupils needs and capabilities whilst encouraging growth in confidence and skill with each lesson. I always felt safe, supported and that I was making good progress throughout his lessons.

Keiron is also extremely popular, and is often acknowledged by passing ex-pupils, which is a great endorsement of his ability and reputation.

It was a pleasure to be instructed by him, and, when I finally passed my practical recently, I not only felt pleased for myself, but proud to be using the tools he had taught me to deliver yet another practical pass to his ever-growing list of pupils.
I will keep in touch with him and wish him every success with all future pupils!

I was actually quite reluctant to start driving and thought of myself as the sort of person who wasn't suited to it, but was under a lot of pressure from my bosses at work to get my license.  Kieron was very patient and understanding throughout (even when I was very unpredictable) and helped me to build up my confidence. He was extremely supportive and flexible when I needed to move appointments around to suit my work or studying. 

Learning to drive can often be very stressful, but Kieron's relaxed attitude meant that the lessons were fun and something that I would look forward to.  I feel that by taking my time and learning in a measured, thorough style with him, I am a safer and more responsible driver as a result.  I would wholeheartedly recommend Kieron (and already have done to my friends and family!)

Kind regards,

I felt that each of my lessons were thoroughly planned and delivered to suit me and my ability, and it was with great pride that I heard him describe me as an, "experienced driver" after only a few lessons! 
 
If you are thinking of learning to drive, Kieron has the patience of a saint and the amazing ability to make you feel comfortable, confident and like you have achieved something in every lesson. I suppose he's pretty cool too. Kieron strives to teach his pupils to drive safely not just how to pass the test. 
 
Thank you Rock Driving Academy !! 
 
Tash Beard, passed 1st attempt, October 2009 

Kieron is so  patient  and friendly. I was really nervous on my first driving lesson, but he gave me confidence and made  me feel comfortable. Whenever i made mistakes or did not understand something , Kieron would just simply help and explain it to me more easily. I would recommend  Kieron 100% to anyone as you dont just learn to drive but you learn to drive well and with confidence. Good luck with everything  Kieron  :)

Lauren Daly, passed 1st attempt, 19th October 2009  

I really can’t recommend Kieron enough; his patient approach to driving put me at ease and allowed me to quickly gain confidence on the road. I never felt pressured or uncomfortable when I made mistakes and his teaching techniques meant that I soon overcame these challenges. To top all that, I found him to be a genuinely nice guy who wasn’t afraid of a bit of banter. Thanks again Kieron!

Dan Crowley, passed 1st attempt, September 2009

For the first few driving lessons i had, i was incredibly nervous, but as soon as i got to know Keiron those nerves went straight away. Despite some pretty dodgy driving at times Kieron never once lost his temper, and always encouraged and criticism was always constructive which helped a lot. As well as learning to drive you could always have a laugh and a chat which is something important to have with your instructor. Kieron showed faith in me when i didn't even have faith in myself and i never once left the lesson feeling bad about my driving thanks to some good positive feedback
 
Good laugh, Great instructor and a Brilliant person.
 
Thanks Kieron

Kieron is a fantastic driving instructor I ever came cross and I recommend him to anyone wishing to learn safe driving and pass from the first attempt. It was not easy to get rid of the bad habits I inherited over the last twenty two years of driving experience and with two international driving licences. Kieron is a true gentleman, calm, patient, knowledgeable and most importantly honest. His 75% plus pass rate tells the story .It was an absolute pleasure meeting him. Thanks Kieron for your help and I wish you all the best for the future. Keep up the good work

David from Warwick, passed 1st attempt on 18th August 2009

Having had the opportunity to experience learning to drive with various other instructors, I can honestly say that Kieron is one of the best. His patience and understanding is second to none and he always makes you feel at ease. He understands that everybody is different and takes everything at your pace. Most important though, he teaches you safe driving and not just how to pass the test.
 
When I came to Kieron I was losing faith with driving but he helped build up my confidence, making driving something I liked doing rather than a chore! Learning to drive with Kieron was an enjoyable experience and I would thoroughly recommend him to anyone looking for a top quality driving instructor.

Thanks again for all your help, even before I passed my test everybody was commenting how much more confident I seemed when driving and that was definitely down to you. I shall be sure to look out for you and give you a wave if I see you around Warwick/Leamington!

Best wishes
 
Kate Hiller, passed 1st attempt

Kieron is the best driving istructor you could ever have!! He's so patient and friendly and makes the lessons enjoyable.. he also gives you confidence and makes you believe that you can do it!! (see kieron i now say i can do it :D instead of can't!!) I struggled with my mirrors and hill starts are now i don't even think about them!! The car is really easy to drive and you feel really safe in it...He never shouted at me when i made stupid mistakes or when i didn't understand just explained it easier for me to understand. I'd 100% recommend you to learn to drive with kieron not just because hes a fantastic teacher but because you dont just learn how to drive.. but drive well and with confidence!! Actually going to miss my driving lessons and i never thought i'd say that!! Good luck with everything!! :D
 
Katie Stephenson, passed 1st attempt, 10th August 2009

I could not have wished for a better driving instructor than Keiron. He put me at ease from day 1 and I thoroughly enjoyed the lessons. Not only were they informative and tailored to improve areas of driving which I found more challenging, I found I never left a lesson without having had a laugh. Keiron has a super personality and is able to bring out the best in people. When I inevitably made mistakes he never raised his voice and when necessary talked through the mistakes to help understand and avoid making them again in the future. Even when a lesson did not go as well as I would have liked Keiron still managed to draw on the positives and taught me not to dwell on errors but to keep focussed on what's ahead. Keiron is very dedicated, never late and welcomes questions and queries. Any support needed, Keiron is more than willing to give.
I feel very privileged to have learnt to drive with Keiron and found the whole experience a very positive one. I passed my test first time and can not thank Keiron enough.

Catherine Ash, passed 1st attempt, 6th August 2009

Kieron is the best instructor you could have.  I was very shy but I was always totally at ease and he's gave me loads of confidence.

So if your thinking of learning to drive you can't go wrong with Kieron.

Craig,  passed 1st attempt, 1st June 2009  

The fact that Kieron is an amazing driving instructor is proven by his 80-something% pass rate (say what?!?!). Learning with Kieron was always relaxed yet informative and there was always a genuine care and concern for my needs as a learner driver too, which was keewl. He's always good for a chat too; if you ever have a bad day at work, have a driving lesson with Kieron - he'll sort you out.
Everything you would need to learn to drive.
 
Cheers Kieron :D

I chose Rock Driving Academy as i had heard about Kierons friendly and professional lessons. He made lessons very enjoyable, and made driving alot easier for me. He never told me off when i got something wrong but always praised me when i got things right. He is always open for questions and gives you answers in a full & helpful manner. He was always up for a laugh but always very professional. I would recommend Rock Driving Academy to anyone looking to pass first time, and enjoy it! Tanks sooo much Keiren. Good luck in the future!..xx
 
Sarah O'Reilly, passed 1st attempt, June 25th 2009

Having you as an instructor was great! I was unsure about having a male instructor but I felt very comfortable and felt that you gave me a lot of support throughout my lessons. I never felt like I was being told off if I did something wrong and was praised when  I completed something right i.e. reverse round a left corner. You have a lot of patience which for me I greatly appreciated. The way you taught to do manoeuvres  was very simple and easy to understand which I found in time helped me a lot.

I would definately recommend you to any one that wants to learn to drive and will praise you to the rooftops because I never thought I would pass.

Good luck with everything in the future. I really hope all goes well.

Hope u enjoyed your wine,

Kieron is a fantastic driving instructor and is so friendly and relaxed when on lessons.
He made learning to drive enjoyable and even when I had a bad lesson he always tried to make me see the positive side of it. When ever I made a mistake he didnt get annoyed, he just stayed calm and talked me through why and what had happened which allowed me to learn from it.
 
I would like to say a massive thankyou to Kieron for having faith in me when I didnt have any in myself, you really boosted my confidence (the magic word!!) and made me see that I am a good driver. Kieron made me feel really relaxed and never pushed me just to get me passed and even once we had booked my test he made sure that I was comfortable with everything and we went over things that I wasnt sure about.
 
I will be recommending Rock Driving Academy to everyone who wants to learn to drive!
 
Thanks again.
 
Tasha, passed 2nd April 2009 

Kieron is a great instructor, he is so realxed and professional when on lessons. He made the learning experience for me a lot easier and didnt rush me through it just to get me passed, he taught me how to be a safe and responsible driver. He always made the lessons enjoyable and always had a laugh. I passed my test first time with just 4 minors with many thanks for the hard work by Kieron to get me there. I will definately be recommending Rock Driving Academy to everyone i know !!
 
Ryan Bateman, passed 1st attempt, 20th March 2009 

Thanks for all of your help i believe that your teaching style is very good because you go at the pupils pace and don't force them into anything unless you believe that it would be beneficial to their development. I honestly think that the lesson i had at the start of my training where you took me to the warwick racecourse car park to get to grips with the car (as all of them are different), so by learning how it handles and where the bite of the clutch is and various thinks like that it really helped to boost confidence before we went out on the open road.
 
With your kind and friendly personality it felt as if you were more of a mate then an instructor who you could have a good laugh and just enjoy the time whilst driving. If your pupil does make a mistake (and i made quite a few lol) then you don't get angry or agitated, you seemed to remain calm and collected even if you did raise off the seat a bit, and after all the action you go through what happened, why it happened and what to do to avoid it.
 
All the effort paid off eventually with a first time pass, its what we both aimed for and fortunately i provided even if the snow did stop the first attempt. 
I thank you again for the time i've spent learning to become a safe driver with you and i hope that your soon to be worldwide success takes off, with your spanish and italian counter-parts to help you to change the "Rock Driving Academy" to the "Rock Driving Organisation" doesn't quite have as good a ring to it though.
 
Kind Regards

I also want to say thankyou for encouraging me when my confidence lacked it made me feel more relaxed and as if i could do it, i would recommend you to anyone who is interested in learning to drive!

Laura Skinner, passed 1st attempt, 19th March 2009

Kieron is a fantastic instructor who manages to remain calm at all times, even when things do not go to plan. Kieron makes you feel at ease from day one and aswell as teaching you to drive safely, he also ensures you enjoy his lesson which isn't hard with his friendly personality. He does not pressure you and lets you learn at your own speed. He has taught me to be a good driver which will hopefully stay with me now that I have passed my test. He even tried to calm me down before my test when he saw the nervous side of me. Kieron makes each pupil feel valued and really cares about how each individual is doing. I would like to thank Kieron for teaching me to drive and giving me the confidence to pass my test as I am now loving the freedom of being able to drive! 
 
Thanks Kieron! 
 
Charlotte Morris, passed 1st attempt, 4th March 2009

This feedback reflects a snapshot of my observations about the service I received from Kieron of the Rock Driving Academy. It is also meant to show my immense gratitude for excellent driving lessons delivered by him.

Kieron’s approach to sessions was very professional.  His technical expertise was very much manifested in the manner of his instructions and guidance. He was very meticulous and paid attention to every detail, with clarity in expressions used. He was also inspirational and motivational. His friendly attitude did inspire confidence in me, a testament to the passing of my test at the first instance.

I will therefore not hesitate in recommending Kieron, and for that matter, Rock Driving Academy, for first class lessons.

Janet Cobourne, passed 1st attempt, 6th January 2009

Well what can I say other than Kieron is the best driving instructor you could ever ask for. I'm so glad I chose to go with rock driving academy as Kieron is just fantastic. 

He's patient and very calm which is what you want in an instructor. He's such a friendly person to learn with so he not also becomes your instructor but your friend and being able to have a really good laugh with him.

If ever I had a bad lesson Kieron would always be encouraging me and making me feel much better he always gave clear instructions with everything and by doing this I felt relaxed and confident. if every i got stuck kieron would always explain it to help me out more.

I passed my driving test on the 20th of December 2008 and I was so happy as all the work we had done had final been achieved :D:D now im doing my pass plus with Kieron and looking forward to it 2 :D:D
 
I just want to say thank you Kieron for having the time and patients to teach me how to drive from being a nervous wreck to and confident driver and i really enjoy every lesson i have done with you
and for all the support and confidence you have given me (hill starts ring any bells LOL)
i will be telling people about you and telling them how brilliant you are and to chose you :D
