"After spending years believing I was too much of a nervous person to ever learn to drive I was recommended Robin and decided to go on what I thought would end up being one lesson just to prove to myself I was right but instead I finished that first lesson looking forward to the next and the thought of learning to drive. Honestly couldn’t of asked for a better instructor he’s a genuinely lovely guy who has the patience of an absolute saint, never loses his cool no matter what and always has you laughing on every lesson. Thanks so much Robin for always pushing me to believe I could do it."

Thanks again Robin!"

Janet passed 1st time
"At the age of 59 coming into driving lessons I was extremely nervous but stepping into Robin's car he immediately put me at ease.
He is encouraging, supportive, down to earth and patient. This in turn made each lesson enjoyable and my nerves were soon at bay.
A reliable driving instructor who went out his way to accommodate my schedule.
I would highly recommend Robin if you are thinking of doing lessons, don't think about it just do it!!
A life changing achievement which will open so many doors for myself and my family!"

"So so grateful to you Robin for your fantastic driving lessons that led to me passing my driving test first time and stress free!
After starting and not sticking with lessons with other instructors twice previous, I had almost given up ever having interest to actually get to the point of booking a test – until starting lessons with you! You made every lesson enjoyable and stress free and I would absolutely recommend you to anyone! Thanks again, as you know this is going to make a huge difference for me and I’ll always be grateful to you! 🚗🎉🙌🏼"

"Robin is brilliant Instructor very calming and patient.
I am an older leaner and managed to pass my test first time.
If and when I made a mistake Robin would explain and go over it again until I managed to get it.
Robin was always encouraging me never to give up. I cannot thank Robin enough and I would highly recommend Robin to anyone wanting to learn to drive.
I could not have done it without you.

Rocco passed with 1st Pass Driving School
"I would very strongly recommend Robin as your driving instructor! From start to finish he was patient with me and remained calm no matter the situation. He would always explain things in such a clear manner which made the whole process a lot more enjoyable. Robin went out of his way to make sure I had enough driving time and went over and beyond and did all he could for me, which I am extremely grateful for. Robin always made me feel comfortable behind the wheel and put absolutely no pressure on me whatsoever. On top of everything, Robin was great to talk to and I felt I could ask anything, no matter how stupid the question. All in all Robin is a fantastic instructor and I am extremely happy I choose him to teach me how to drive!!!
Thanks again "
Dearbhla passed 1st time
"I highly recommend Robin as your driving instructor!
Helping me pass my test 1st time with only 1 minor was only something I could have imagined when starting to learn.
He has been incredibly patient, committed and often gone above and beyond to help me on my driving journey. He has always been on time, flexible to suit you and willing to put in the hours to make sure you have the best chance of passing your test.
Robin always made me feel comfortable, confident and ensured I was always thinking and focusing when driving, which ultimately helped me achieve the first time pass.
Along with all the driving skill and coaching, it’s been great fun along the way!
I highly recommend 1st Pass Driving School and am glad I chose Robin to help me learn to drive,
Stephanie passed 1st time
"I would absolutely recommend 1st Pass Driving School if you are looking to learn to drive. Robin has such a lovely demeanour, calm and has the patience of a saint!
I had my provisional for 14 years before I gave Robin a call, his coaching style is brilliant, he takes the time to get to know what makes you tick so that he can coach you in a style that you'll resonate with and his passion for what he does really shines through, I wish I'd found him years ago!"
Sheena passed 1st time
"Robin is a first class driving instructor. He gave me self belief and confidence. I am a mature learner and at times must have drove him crazy. He is calming, reassuring and knows exactly how to progress you. Automatic was my choice and one I am glad I made. Passed today 1st time 03/03/2020.
Robin is 100% reliable an a credit to himself and the profession.
Craig passed with 1st Pass Driving School
"Robin was the perfect instructor for me. I was a reluctant learner that had never wanted to drive before. I picked 1st Pass after finding the website and reading recommendations.
Robin helped me see the positive sides of driving and kept me motivated. After every lesson I always felt like I learned something and as a result was a better, safer, and more confident driver. I went from someone that had never wanted to drive to someone that can't wait to get out on the road.
Claire passed 1st time with 1st Pass Driving School
"I’ve tried lessons throughout the years with several instructors but never followed through. Robin is a fantastic instructor. I can't recommend him highly enough. From the assessment drive before committing to lessons he was brilliant. He makes you very relaxed and at the same time is very clear on what is required to be a good safe driver. At no point did I not want to go out for a lesson which for me was a big change! Passed first time and more importantly confident in my abilities.
Thank you Robin!"
Ryan passed 1st attempt at Paisley Test Centre
"From start to finish I was really happy with Robin's teaching style. Reasonable pricing structure and flexibility, being able to fitting lessons around my work schedule. I would definitely recommend 1st Pass Driving School. Robin is a really friendly guy, he made me feel at ease and gave me confidence behind the wheel, I never thought I would have.
I had lessons with another instructor but when I heard the good reviews about Robin I changed and I am really glad I did. After recently passing my test first time I know I wouldn't have done it without Robin's help."
Jade passed 1st time with 1st Pass Driving School
"I can’t recommend Robin highly enough, he really is an amazing instructor and has a heart of gold. I also can’t thank Robin enough for getting me through my lessons and my practical test. I was very nervous and lacked so much confidence in myself but Robin's teaching style is so relaxed, calm and fun and every lesson was tailored to my progression. If you’re nervous or in any doubt about driving then Robin is definitely the instructor you want to call. He is so patient and understanding and has an amazing ability to put you right at ease and make you feel confident in yourself and your abilities. He breaks down everything to make it simple, understandable and enjoyable.
Thank you so much Robin!"
Chris passed with 1st Pass Driving School
"You need a driving instructor who will make you feel at ease and confident with being in a car, on the road and with yourself – your search is complete! Robin encourages and works with you to be a proficient driver and not only prepares you for the test but for after – when you're fully qualified! If anyone wants to not only pass but (more importantly) be a good driver, then book lessons with Robin A.S.A.P. I am grateful for everything he has taught me, his words of wisdom will be parked in my head for years to come. Bye-Bye McGill's buses. Hello freedom! "
Andrew passed with 1st Pass Driving School
"Robin is a great Instructor!
I was apprehensive about learning to drive, but Robin's calm, friendly personality and his patient and detailed teaching style made it easy to gain confidence and make progress quickly.
He's very professional – responds quickly to messages, is always on time and puts a lot of thought into the lessons. I couldn't have asked for any more from an instructor! Thanks Robin!"
Gemma passed with 1st Pass Driving School
"I cannot recommend 1st Pass highly enough. I had absolutely no confidence in my ability and after 7 failed tests with another instructor, I had given up on driving completely. Trying again with 1st Pass was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Robin's approach and teaching style was so positive and constructive that I not only learned to drive but learned to actually enjoy it! He took the time and effort to get to know what my needs were and tailored lessons to suit my development in such a way that I was making progress without even realising. Robin is always friendly, always patient, and always able to explain things in a way that really makes sense. He helped me find confidence that I didn't know I had. I used to dread driving lessons but with 1st Pass I found myself actually looking forward to them. My only regret is not finding this driving instructor sooner!"
Rachael passed 1st time with 1st Pass Driving School
"If you want to pass your test and become a confident driver then Robin at 1st Pass Driving School is your man!
I was a nervous wreck when I first got into his car and had no confidence in my ability to drive. With so much compassion and knowledge he taught me not only how to drive but how to believe in myself. When I made mistakes during a lesson (and there were many) or got flustered he helped me see how each experience is a positive lesson and what I could learn from it. I cannot thank Robin enough for his patience, making me feel so relaxed, and of course teaching me how to drive!
Thank you so much again."
Ramya passed at Paisley Test Centre
"Robin is one of the best and professional driving instructors. I was very impressed that if I made mistake during the lessons. He would stay calm and go over again and again with patience. He is strict to the rules and laws. He wasn't just teaching me the skills of driving but the attitude of how to drive safely and respect for other road users. He encouraged me a lot not to give up and I want to thank him very much for bringing me all the way as a driver.

Robin's professionalism gives you confidence on the roads and you know your learning from the best. Robin makes the learning experience fun and enjoyable.

Will passed at Paisley Test Centre
"I have been having lessons with Robin from start of the year. He is very articulate and professional and knows how to put you at ease. He has a nice manner in pointing out how you did something wrong. And very easily takes you through step by step how to fix things. I can't thank you enough for helping me get my licence Robin. And would say to anyone even just thinking about lessons but you feel too nervous. Just give this guy a call If you don't feel more confident after the first lesson then you've lost nothing but an hour of your time. But you might just find that you have been worried about nothing and go on to enjoy many years of driving. Once again Robin thank you so very much for all your patience and help..."

Shelly passed 1st time at Paisley Test Centre
"I had been driving in the US for 37 years before moving to Scotland. After driving in Scotland on my own for 11 months I had to prepare to take my practical exam for the UK. I didn't leave myself much time, but Robin was very accommodating and worked to fit as much time as I needed into his schedule. Lets just say as any long term driver I had developed a few bad habits. Robin was excellent at helping me know what I needed to work on in a very encouraging and respectful way. He also helped me not to overcompensate and not lose my own style of driving. I was confident and relaxed when I took my test because of Robin's guidance. I would highly recommend Robin of 1st Pass Driving School.
Thanks again for all you did!"
Fiona passed 1st time at Paisley Test Centre
"Robin is a fantastic driving instructor. Calm, patient, friendly & very encouraging. As an older first time driving student, I was extremely apprehensive about my decision to start learning. Robin was quick to put me at ease & used his sense of humour to keep the lessons enjoyable & memorable! I fully recommend learning with Robin."
Paul from Paisley passed on his 1st attempt at Paisley Test Centre!
"Being a bit older and learning to drive I was a bit nervous but Robin allayed my nerves and put me at ease very quickly, a consummate professional very relaxed and always prompt for my lessons, so if you are young, old or in middle aged I would highly recommend Robin of 1st Pass Driving School."
