Recent Driving Test Passes
Edinburgh City Driving School is proud to have helped many clients pass their driving test. Below is a selection from some of the positive feedback we’ve received recently.
I am very pleased with my experience and happy to report I cleared the practical examination on my first attempt. Leslie is very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. Although I have a U.S. drivers license I was in no way ready to clear the exam when I started lessons. Leslie helped me overcome bad habits and I am now a much safer driver. Leslie was also very patient and flexible when working around my work schedule. I will strongly recommend Edinburgh City Driving School and Leslie to anyone I know.

Just passed my driving test after learning with Edinburgh City Driving School!Had Leslie as an instructor and he was absolutely fab. He easily managed around my work schedule and fit in as many or as few lessons as I wanted each week.As you know learning to drive can be a bit scary, especially if like me you aren’t 17 anymore, and Les made the whole thing a lot easier by being so easy to get along with.I set myself a goal of passing before my birthday and happily managed this with the help of Edinburgh City Driving School and Les who instilled confidence in me and encouraged me all the way.Thanks guys, see you on the roads!!! 🙂

Jon helped me pass first time with only 3 minors. Great instructor, would recommend him to anyone.
I write this having passed my driving test; something which, at times, I doubted I would ever succeed in. However, my instructor Keith thankfully had more faith than I did. I received driving lessons for my 23rd birthday, and have now passed shortly before my 24th birthday.
I did not find learning to drive easy. In fact, I found it really difficult. However, Keith is an extremely patient and encouraging instructor, and over time, I gradually became more confident. After the first few lessons and my nerves abated slightly, I enjoyed my lessons. Keith has great banter and chat on him, and he somehow manages to keep this up, even when you’re making lots of mistakes and it would be easy for him to get fed up! Keith never dwells on mistakes. He is very pragmatic and instead encourages you to get it right next time. Keith explains manoeuvres very clearly and simply, and with his endless patience, he explained these to me on more than one occasion!
When I failed my test a couple of times (largely due to nerve related silly mistakes), Keith assured me that I would get there eventually. He ensured that I didn’t give up, as tempting as it may have been.
I highly recommend Keith for anyone wanting to learn to drive. If I can learn to drive, anyone can. Seriously. And I have Keith to attribute this to. Thanks Keith; you are, and have been, fantastic!
Keith was my instructor and I had him for a block of 10 hour lessons. I had previous experience of driving but needed to brush up to pass my test. I found Keith’s style of teaching not only very straight forward and easy to apply but also very supportive which in turn gave me a lot of confidence.
On top of the lessons, Keith was very social and always had good conversation in the car between maneuvers which is always a plus. He was very flexible with changing lesson times and always patient in the car when taking lessons. Instructions were very straight forward and easy to employed under his tuition.
When it came to the test day I felt fully prepared and that all the maneuvers had been completely covered. I was relaxed and passed with only 2 minors. I can see why both Keith and Edinburgh City Driving School has a great reputation, can’t recommend them enough. Thanks for the help and the great service.
Leslie has been my instructor since last September and today, I have finally passed! If it were not for Leslie’s relentless patience and understanding as well as his reliability – I never would have gotten through it!
Not only is Leslie an amazing instructor, he adapts his learning style to suit you and helped me to understand not only how to be a safe and knowledgeable driver but also Leslie helped me understand myself and how I learn much better.
It has been a long journey (no pun intended) and although I am partially sad that it has come to an end, I know that I have the confidence and ability to be a great (and safe) driver.
I would highly recommend Leslie (and have done already) to my friends and family.
I cannot thank Leslie enough for everything he has taught me.
Thanks and with best wishes,

David was a incredible instructor and I felt very comfortable with him. Very friendly and approachable, he knew which parts of my driving needed work after my first lesson and tailored my lessons to improve.
After 6 lessons, I passed first time with only two minors – Thanks to EC Driving School. Can’t recommend them enough.
Don’t go anywhere else!Thanks again folks, brilliant service. I’ll be seeing you in the pub!
“I chose ECDS because they were highly rated online and their prices were fair and competitive. I began learning to drive with Richard in December with no prior driving ability and, from the beginning, I was gaining practical experience. Every week I felt that I was improving and I was sitting my driving test before I knew it. I passed first time and I would like to thank Richard for his teaching ability and calm demeanor. I would highly recommend ECDS.”Thanks,
I would like to give a big thank you to David Ambrose, the driving instructor at ECDS. I have just passed the test after 10 hours of training on my first attempt. He is very friendly and took me through all the possible test routes and explained every possible faults I may make. This really helped to boost my confidence and most of these tips came very handy at the time of the practical test. ECDS have a very good deal for the first 10 hours.I would highly recommend David to any of my friends.
