    I started lerning to drive with Ian back in June 2019. My whole expreience has been a great joy and Ian has been fantastic throughout. I failed at my first attempt but managed to pass on the second with 4 minors. I whould receommend Ian to anyone who wan't to learn to drive in an automatic or requires any adaptations like myself needing hand controls.

  • Great guy

    Ian is an amazing instructor, i passed 2nd time with him back in 2016. I have refered numerous of people to him and they have passed first time. If you want an instructor that is laid back, easy to talk to, patient with mistakes etc then this guy is the one.,

  • Thankyou

    Well what can I say Ian is very calming and encouraging , I gave up on the thought that I would ever drive then one of our family members passed with Ian and put me in touch with him and it’s the best thing I have ever done !!!when I look back over my journey from what I was to what I am now you wouldn’t think I was the same person so hats off to you Ian thankyou so much you have made my life so much better 😊😊

    Mr Ian has been such amazing instructor. My sister was taking the lessons with him and passed the test first time so when it's my turn she said it's gotta be him. She was right. I couldn't see myself taking a driving lessons with anyone else but him. He was super kind, patient and make the lesson really enjoyable. I started with Ian from scratch and increasingly gaining confident and responsibly driver. If I find myself hard to understand about the roundabout he would explain it again and again with patient and let's me practice till I got better. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

  • Thank you

    I had no confidence in my driving ability ,I did take a couple of tests 20 or so years ago but found the instructors to have little or no people skills. I was made to feel as if I was rubbish at driving and it put me off for life . However as family commitments and work travel became increasing difficult for me I decided to give it one more try . Ian was the most patience kind and undemanding person I have ever met . He didn't push me ,let me go at my own pace but at the same time didn't string my lessons out . He taught me more in a couple of months then I had learned in years of lessons 20 years ago . Above all that he gave me confidence and the belief that I could succeed . And I did , under his guidance I passed my test the first time I took it with him . Thank you Ian you are the most kind and patient teacher and I'm so glad you answered my text and helped me .

  • Massive Thanks

    After a bad experience with another driving instructor and being made to feel that my Cerebral Palsy was a barrier that I may not be able to overcome I met Ian at a driving assessment centre. Following the assessment in an automatic car I decided to continue my driving journey with Ian as I felt he had a better understanding of my needs. When I started my lessons with Ian he had to build my confidence back up from nothing as my previous instructor really made me doubt my ability to learn to drive. I found Ian to be very patient, understanding and calm with a very good understanding of my disability and how to teach me to pass. I believe all these attributes are what makes him a good instructor. After around 14 months of teaching me I finally passed (3rd time lucky) I now just have to wait for my car to arrive and I will be off. I can’t thank Ian enough for all his help. If we hadn’t have met I would have given up driving a long time ago. I would recommend Ian to anyone who wants to learn to drive. A message to anyone who has had a bad experience don’t give up. My life will be so different now and it’s all thanks to Ian.

  • Excellent driving instructor

    27 July 2017, 14:46

    I echo the comments from Ian’s other students when they say he is a: calm, patient, funny, warm, professional, approachable and kind driving instructor. I had rather a lot of anxiety about driving but Ian’s approach really put me at ease, he helped me to develop my skills and confidence and I was able to pass my test first time. I went from being a nervous wreck to a driver who feels confident about making my own decisions. I would heartily recommend Ian as a driving instructor and I have to say I had such a good time that I will truly miss my lessons with him. Thanks Ian xx

  • First time passed!

    After starting to learn how to drive to now, it's taken me 5 months of relaxed lessons with Ian. He keeps very calm and makes the lessons very enjoyable, making sure you understand everything. He makes you feel very relaxed and comfortable. I would recommend him to anyone as he is an amazing driving instructor! Glad he helped me to pass first time! :)

  • Thank you so much!!

    After a year of learning how to drive and multiple tests failed I changed instructors to Ian and I am so pleased I did. Ian is a very kind, approachable and easy to talk to instructor and has helped my confidence increase massively! He explains everything so well and highlights any mistakes in a gentle manner and ensures you know how to prevent the same mistakes happening in the future. He has been great in explaining everything to me and has taught me in a way which adheres to my learning difficulties. Ian is very flexible on lesson times and has been able to re-schedule my lessons on short notice. Ian isn’t just my driving instructor; he has become a good friend and I would happily recommend Ian to anyone.

  • Absoultely fantastic instructor.

    25 July 2016, 14:21

    I've gone through so many instructors in my quest to learn to drive and found my confidence at rock bottom after a string of particularly condescending and verbally aggressive instructors. After just 6 months with Ian, who is a friendly and amazingly patient instructor, I passed my test first time! Words will never be enough to describe how fantastic Ian is as an instructor. He is very welcoming and explains things in ways that are easy to understand, there is no such thing as a silly question with Ian. He is also pretty flexible which has made it a lot easier for me being on a regularly changing rota to be able to have flexible driving lessons. Without a doubt would recommend Ian for driving whether for able-bodied people wanting to learn automatic or those who need the adapted controls. 10/10.

  • Thankyou so much

    After 2 manual car instructors told me I would be more suited to driving an automatic I reluctantly rang Ian and booked a lesson with him , after my first lesson I wished I had not wasted months on driving a manual car . I had so much more confidence and Ian made learning to drive a pleasure instead of something I feared , he is so patient and explains everything so well . I was so nervous on my first test I actually walked into the test centre crying ! but on my second test ian kept me very calm just before going in the test centre and I actually passed with 6 minors , I couldn't believe it , I am 47 years old and never had the confidence to learn to drive till I met ian welbourne , thankyou so much for believing in me .

  • Lovely guy.

    After looking for an automatic instructor i finally found ian. Hes a lovely guy, makes you feel at ease and a great instructor. After failing 1st time i passed on my 2nd attempt. Would highly reccomend him. Cant fault a thing with him. Thank you ian.

  • Ian is THE BEST

    17 March 2016, 00:40

    Ian is a great driving instructor.He is kind,patient and very knowledgeable.My lessons with him were stress fee and enjoyable.He has a superb 'bedside' manner and when I made any errors he always explained ways to correct them in a constructive and friendly way.Without Ian I doubt that I would have passed first time.I really enjoyed my lessons,which is the best recommendation I can give.

  • Thank You!

    Taking driving lessons with Ian was a truly a wonderful experience. I started with him at a point when I had given up any hope of ever passing the practical. Ian is patient, gentle, kind, and a very good teacher who always highlights my mistakes in a gentle and kind manner. I cannot rate you enough! I passed my test with 2 minor faults after trying it several times with another instructor. I will definitely recommend you to anyone. Thank you so much! Cheers

    I can't thank Ian enough for getting me through my driving test first time. He is a top bloke! Always staying calm and patient when I made the same mistakes over and over again! He really made me feel at ease as I was very anxious and always gave lots of praise rather than focusing on my mistakes. He built up my confidence in driving which I never thought I would have. At 38 and having tried a few other instructors I thought that I would never be a driver. Ian has changed all that for me giving me the freedom of driving. I cannot recommend Ian enough. He is just the absolute best at what he does. THANK YOU IAN 😀👍🏻🚘

  • Best instructor ever!

    17 November 2015, 20:30

    Ian, I rate you 22 out of 10! ;-) I could not recommend this guy enough! He is more like a best friend than an instructor! He is so easy to talk to, he's funny, he is the most patient person I have ever met, and he's a fantastic listener (for a man) Lol! He makes learning to drive very fun and simple, thanks to Ian I passed my test first time! I now have freedom and confidence, thank you Ian! Beep beep happy driving :D Danielle X

  • Top person, even better instructor

    08 June 2015, 12:00

    I cannot thank Ian enough for what he has done for me over the last few years. He was very understanding and patient, with my needs and concerns, thanks to Ian I passed my test first time last week, after many years of learning. I would happily recommend Ian to anyone I know

  • Highly recommend

    02 May 2015, 13:23

    Ian is a brilliant driving instructor, I cant rate him high enough. He is very friendly and patient, he made me feel at ease and built my confidence. I didn't think I was going to pass my test but thanks to Ian I have and it has changed my life in a big way. I would highly recommend Ian as a driving instructor.


    10 March 2015, 14:56

    Thanks to Ian I managed to pass my test with a 'clean sheet'. After a football injury I thought I would never be able to drive but thanks to Ian I now have my licence and an adapted car. Ian is a very friendly instructor who has given me lots of confidence and I would recommend him to anyone wanting to learn to drive. Thank you Ian as I now have my FREEDOM!

  • Thank You So Much !!!!

    31 January 2015, 13:57

    I found Ian via recommendation. When I had my first lesson, he was friendly and instantly put me at ease. Throughout my time with him, Ian was very patient with me and explained things to me in way which I could understand. Whenever I made a mistake, he explained to me exactly where I had gone wrong in a calm and gentle manner which was brilliant. He always lets you go at your own pace which was important to me ^^. When I failed my test, first time around, I was frustrated but Ian reassured me that I would succeed. Thanks to his patience and reassurance, I passed with flying colours the second time around. Thank you so much Ian ^^. I would highly recommend Ian to anyone :)

  • Very Highly Recommended

    13 December 2014, 11:19

    I had never driven a car and was learning from scratch. Ian was recommended by my sister in law and i am so glad i had my lessons with him. He is very patient and friendly and made me feel at ease from day one. I passed my test first time with only one minor. Thanks again to Ian you are an amazing instructor.

  • Thank you so much!!

    After many years of driving lessons with various instructors, thanks to Ian Welbourne I finally passed my driving test last weekend. I cannot recommend Ian highly enough, he is professional, patient and extremely supportive. Ian is also really friendly and makes you feel completely at ease, even when I got frustrated with myself if I made a mistake Ian remained patient throughout and explained everything thoroughly. I had got to the stage where I never thought that I would pass my practical test so I am so pleased that somebody recommended Ian to me, thanks to him I can't wait to start driving around in my own car. Ian is a fantastic driving instructor and I would recommend him to anyone.

  • If I could rate more than 5 I would

    After searching high and low for a driving instructor who could teach with hand controls etc, i'm so glad that it was Ian I found, I was so nervous at the very start but Ian is so patient and lets you go at your own pace and as the lessons went I became more confident thanks to Ian's patience and friendly manner. Thank you so much Ian for teaching me to drive, it will really change my life now I wont be stuck at home all the time not being able to get out and about, great teacher and person in general

    I can't rate Ian high enough as an instructor, right from the very first lesson he put me at ease. He is extremely patient and let's you do everything at your own pace. I know that all the tuition I have had from him will stand me in good stead for my future driving. Thanks Ian for believing in me.
