    Passed my driving test last November, with just one minor. He was patient and taught me the basics very thoroughly.I work shift hours, but he was always flexible and accommodating when it came to finding a lesson slot. Thanks for all your hard work! Hiruni

    Thanks very much for your great patience and encouragement, and attention to details. You have easy memorable ways to teach the manoeuvres and they are spot on. I also learnt a lot of wise phrases like: 'never fight anyone bigger than you' - in relation to when approaching a big vehicle, one should always try to give way. I would highly recommend Mike to everyone. Thank you very much Mike. God bless you.

    Passed my driving test 2nd time round after taking lessons with Mike for 4-5 months. Mike is a very experienced and easy going instructor who taught me the manoeuvres in a simple and easy way.

    15 March 2016, 08:53

    I passed first time thanks to mike. I came to him as a mature student and he made me feel at ease from the start. Over the time of my learning to drive with mike we got on really well, he was patient and understanding and helped me enjoy the learning process. I genuinely looked forward to my lessons. His knowledge of the test routes helped prepare with confidence and come the day of my test he was calm and supportive which helped me no end. Many thanks mike ill miss our drives together. ted

  • Passed first time in just 5 months!

    02 November 2015, 14:27

    Thank you so much Mike for all your support and help on my journey to learn to drive. I had my very first driving lesson on the 6th of June 2015 and in total had 35 classes with Mike. On the 30th October 2015 I passed my driving test with only 2 minors!! Mike is an amazing instructor who is always calm and patient to help you on your way to pass your driving Test!

  • PASSED at the very first time! Thanks a million to Mike.

    28 September 2015, 21:55

    I nearly gave up my driving after changing many instructors. I tried one more time with Mike and found him absolutely brilliant!! I passed my test on 21/09/15 and I can only attribute this to Mike's teaching. He was so patient with me, correcting my errors quietly and gently pointing out my weaknesses, yet all the while building my confidence and making me into a driver who passed with only 1 minor fault. Highly recommended:)

  • Passed 1st time

    22 September 2015, 12:58

    Mike is an amazing instructor, after having a few different instructors previously, things clicked with Mike. He was calm and explained manoeuvres easily. He is able to make you relaxed and confident when driving. Honestly the best instructor I've had, would high recommend him to anyone. As a result I have passed my driving test first time today! Can't thank him enough. Thanks Mike

  • Best Instructor I've Had

    02 September 2015, 09:50

    Finally passed my test yesterday morning, I've been learning to drive on and off since I was 17, I'm now 20 +1 month and I've only been learning with Mike for a very short period compared to my other instructors and I can easily say it's the best driving experience I've had! Mike is very patient and extremely helpful, I've never had instructors go out of their way to make sure I get everything spot on quite like Mike did, everything from my steering to ironing out every tiny little crease in my maneouvres. I've finally passed after 3 years of driving lessons and one failed test, with 2 minors the first time and 3 the second. Would recommend to any nervous drivers and first time drivers as Mike Collins is a fantastic instructor, thanks again Mike!!

  • A Wonderful Instructor!

    26 August 2015, 11:03

    Last week, I passed my driving test (with no minors!), thanks to the outstanding teaching and guidance of Mike Collins. As an incredibly nervous driver with no confidence at all in my ability to learn, I was hard work as a pupil and had struggled to get anywhere with two previous instructors. However, with Mike, I started making progress from the very first lesson! His calm, patient and relaxed demeanour immediately put me at ease and he explained everything so clearly and thoroughly that I felt completely safe and supported at all times. I took a long time to 'get it' and often found myself getting frustrated and upset, but Mike remained unruffled throughout, reminding me how far I'd come and encouraging me, without indulging my self-doubt. With good reason, Mike is highly in demand, but he is reliable, capable and personable; you could not find a better instructor.


    04 August 2015, 22:42

    When l had met Mike l was convinced l never wanted to drive after 1 lesson when l was 17 that put me off 20 years later and due to work commitments l decided to give it a try, l was a nervous wreck and convinced l would be the one that would never learn, not at any point did Mike let me be a defeatist he reassured me and believed in me from day one, he was kind and patient with a wicked sense of humour even with my tears and tantrums. I managed to pass on my 3rd time l failed previously due to nerves but Mike encouraged me and reassured me l would get there l finally passed with no minors whatsoever l can now give my children more freedom and save a lot of money financially getting to work. I would recommend Mike to anybody he has helped me find a new lease of life and l will be forever grateful. Thanks Mike x

  • Best Instructor

    30 May 2015, 19:56

    As I am a difficult person to instruct. Mike found a way for me to learn my driving in a very thorough manner. Most helpful advice and guide was given to me. I had tried two other instructors before Mike and I can say they were rubbish compared to Mike. Thanks Mike for making me pass my test

  • Best Driving Instructor!

    15 May 2015, 16:54

    Thank you Mike for training me well. A cool, calm and friendly driving instructor who does not make his pupils shaky. Will spend extra time with smiling face. Very accomodative and understand his pupils circumstances. Highly recommend him.

  • Excellent driving instructor

    10 May 2015, 16:31

    He's a brilliant and responsible driving instructor. I'm glad that I passed my first manual driving test, so thank you Mike.

  • The most fantastic driving instructor!

    27 February 2015, 18:09

    After failing my first test many years ago and giving up on the idea of driving, my sister in law mentioned Mike Collins to me. From the very first lesson, Mike made me feel at ease and made the whole learning process enjoyable rather than a chore ! I actually looked forward to my lessons. You will not be disappointed if you choose Mike as your instructor. He is calm, professional and a fantastic instructor. I have passed my test today first time with Mike and I am over the moon! Do not hesitate to book lessons with Mike, he is fantastic !

  • Excellent and thank you

    15 February 2015, 11:50

    Excellent teacher, I felt really prepared for my test. would highly recommend !

  • Thank You Mike

    14 February 2015, 13:48

    I had about 5 failed tests before moving to Hull. I will summaries Mike Collins as follows: Very patient Always on time. The man is very punctual Honest and straight forward Experienced and knows all the test routes especially those annoying roundabouts You will learn at your own pace Open to discussions and will always take you back to routes you missed You do a lot of manoeuvres during each lesson so it is always fresh None of those pictures they show you to waste time. Practical all the way! Genuine and very considerate My first test he said you are not ready however I insisted and crashed his car!!!!. My family thought I was crazy when I called him two weeks later to book for more lessons. Please if there is a waiting list, my advise is put down your name go home and relax in front of the TV with a cup of tea. You are in good hands. Thank you Mike for the support you never knew how much it meant I gave up a lot of times. Still looking for my shinny car!!!

  • Thank you Mike, because of you i passed my first time :)

    13 January 2015, 19:11

    thank you for your patience and good instruction. You have made driving a car easy and possible for a first timer. Thanks a lot Mike.

  • You can & you will

    11 January 2015, 17:10

    After years of doubting myself on being able to drive, I finally had the courage to take lessons again. I rang mike and arranged a lesson and never looked back! I started my lessons in the August and every time I started the engine I use to feel nervous, until Mike showed me the ropes! He is the best instructor I could have asked for. He use to tell me I doubted myself too much. He tells you straight to the point and doesn't mess you around. By the December I had passed my test with only 2 minors :) Mike I couldn't have done it without you. Thanks x

  • 'The' best instructor I had ever come across !

    05 January 2015, 14:56

    After achieving the actual ability to drive a car, I had taken lessons from 5 different instructors from 4 different cities within England. Mr Mike Collins is the best instructor I had ever come across and his teaching standards are very high. He made me feel at ease and brought the best out of me. Teaching is not about 'how much the teacher knows, but about how capable they are in passing on 'what they know' to their students. Even though I am a Doctor, I had been a teacher all my life and I do know a lot about teaching. (The world No.1 Medical University, University College London Hospital had awarded me witha Top Teacher award). In my opinion, Mr Mike Collins is a great teacher with greatest qualities. He is not only extremely experienced and knowledgeable, he has the ability to teach at the required pace in a non-threatening way. He is also a very nice person to know and I strongly reccommend him for anyone at any stage of their driving. Mr Mike Collins is very sincere, dedicated, punctual and commited. Driving is not just to pass a test but for life and it is a very essential and valuable part of our life and better chose the best instructor Mr Mike Collins.

  • Many thanks Mike !

    Instructors like Mike are not easy to find. Thank you very much, Mike. After trying two different driving instructors I decided to choose Mike. I can honestly tell you I felt more confident and he's well-experienced in this field. It was just incredibly and unbelievable passing with absolute no minor fault in the test. He teaches you the basics and fundamentals from bottom to top. He teaches you everything you need to know about driving, covers every aspect of driving you need to know to pass the test. I'm so lucky and I cannot thank Mike enough for having me. I'm glad to have chosen the right person for my driving Instructor. He's TOP and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND to all. Thanks a lot mike May God bless you.

  • Positive Instructor

    06 December 2014, 15:33

    Mike is highly recommended to all learners, he is chilled out but definitely teaches you all you need to pass your test. He has a very positive attitude and helps you believe in yourself.

  • Fabulous instructor - dnt hesitate to call him!!!

    06 December 2014, 07:57

    Id had numerous lessons with various instructors over 18 m and was getting no were near confident with driving . I called mike and began lessons in May and passed within 7 months!!! He is patient, does not get mad if make mistakes and makes sure u rectify your errors before ending your lesson so you know were u went wrong. Highly recommend mike to anyone especially nervous or worried drivers to be. Thanks mike for everything 😃

  • Passed 1st Time

    21 November 2014, 09:07

    A big thank you to Mike for helping me to pass my theory & driving test such a excellent Instructor you get to learn at your own speed and £20 a lesson you carn't go wrong. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND MIKE TO EVERYONE.

  • Top Instructor :)

    12 September 2014, 20:18

    Passed my theory and practical first time with the help of Mike. Very patient and let me learn at my own pace. Would highly recommend :)

  • Well worth it!

    08 July 2014, 15:31

    Passed with 5 minors! It was my third test but first time learning with Mike. I felt that I got a lot out of each lesson- Mike would make sure to fit in as much practice as possible on my areas of weakness, which for me were big junctions/roundabouts and certain manoeuvres. Very honest, practical, and patient. Also very accommodating with regards to lesson times (owing to my working hours), as well as short notice for a relatively intensive approach (15 hours in 6 weeks). I would definitely recommend Mike to anyone wanting to learn in Hull. Thank you ever so much again!

  • 1st time pass!

    08 February 2014, 13:28

    I had around 20 lessons with Mike. I liked his approach to teaching as it didn't follow a set structure of so many lessons a manoeuvre that I found with driving schools. The lessons progressed as I did which was really quickly through Mikes experience and approach to teaching. Genuine, honest bloke and couldn't recommend any higher!

  • Quality Instructor

    03 February 2014, 17:36

    Failed twice before with the AA Driving school but passed first time with Mike, speaks for itself really. Highly recommend.

  • Thank you Mike

    02 February 2014, 17:49

    I passed my driving test last week. I have learnt driving from few other instructors, among them Mike has been the best. He honestly tries to get us to the test standards. I would recommend him without any hesitatio


    14 January 2014, 17:21

    I was only with mike for a short time. how ever in this time he taught me everything i needed to know in a way that was easy to understand and learn, his techniques and way of teaching is very easy to learn by. On top of all this Mike is a very honest guy and unlike other instructors he doesn't try and get money out of you, if you're ready to pass he will prompt you to go for your test, i think i had a total of three lessons with mike before i passed first time.
