    Jo Bateman

    happyhour22017 Jo Bateman passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School After twenty years of trying to pluck up the courage and plenty of nerves Ian finally got me through my test; first time!

    It would be fair to say I was a very nervous learner. I saw problems constantly and didn’t trust myself to do something so potentially dangerous. It was a relief when Ian understood this. Despite my ability to panic he always remained calm, sometimes it must have been very difficult for him to do so!

    Ian would gently get me to push myself and would never accept I couldn’t do it. If I didn’t understand something he would find another way to explain it. I valued this greatly.

    Ian is friendly, patient, empathetic and overall a great teacher. I have recommended to him to lots of people and they’re all happy with my suggestion. I have no hesitation in recommending him as an instructor.

    Dario Capaldi

    happyhour22017 Dario Capaldi passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School learning to drive with ian sanderson was an enjoyable learning experience. he is very knowledgeable and provided me with all the skills and information necessary to be a successful driver. patient, understanding and friendly, i wouldn´t recommend learning to drive with anyone else.

    Rachel Byars

    happyhour22017 Rachel Byars passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School Ian was recommended to me by my mum´s friend after she passed her test first time. i was extremely nervous for the first few lessons, but i had nothing to worry about - ian was always very calm, he never raised his voice and always gave encouragement along with any criticism or points that had to be worked on. He planned the lessons to suit my learning pace and was very understanding of my ever-changing university timetable. i would not hesitate to recommend ian as a driving instructor. at first i was absolutely terrified, but grew to love it and passed my test first time.

    Thomas Houston

    happyhour22017 Thomas Houston passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School "Ian is a great driving instructor. Coming to driving a little later than most I thought the lessons were well planned and structured. I knew exactly what was expected of me and what was required to pass my test. Ian is very patient and all elements of driving, including manoeuvres, were clearly explained and demonstrated. I had exactly the right amount of lessons I needed to pass first time.
    I would recommend Ian to anyone as a driving instructor. No matter what age you are its money well spent."

    Sean Bankier

    happyhour22017 Sean Bankier passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School Having spoken to friends and family about their learning experiences it demonstrated to me how lucky I was to have Ian as a driving instructor. Ian completely defies the stereotype of a driving instructor in order to make learning to drive an extremely enjoyable experience.

    Ian’s calm demeanour and clear instruction made sure that the entire time that I was in the car I felt confident and safe in my own abilities. His structured, progressive way of teaching is ideal as lessons are customised to the individual to ensure that weaknesses are improved upon and progress is made in every lesson.

    I would highly recommend Ian to anyone learning to drive as I could not have asked for a better driving instructor.

    Lorna Ronald

    happyhour22017 Lorna Ronald passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School After having lessons with another company for over a year, I really felt like I was getting nowhere and that my previous instructor was holding me back. I was very happy to be recommended Ian by a friend at university. After my first lesson with Ian I felt so much more confident and I had a clear vision of where my lessons where going to take me. All lessons were clear and easy to understand, not like my previous lessons! Ian is a very calm and friendly instructor and he was very accommodating in helping to work my lessons around my busy student nurse schedule. With Ian´s help I passed my test first time with only two minors, which I was over the moon with.
    I would like to thank Ian very much with all his help, I really thought I wasn´t cut out to be a driver.

    Jemma Byrne

    happyhour22017 Jemma Byrne passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School Ian has been an amazing driving instructor. He always made me feel comfortable and relaxed on the road and gave me the confidence I needed to pass my test first time.

    Jody Allan

    happyhour22017 Jody Allan passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School Ian is a (bloody) brrrrilliant instructor; cool, calm, collected and patient. Dont think he panicked once (even tho sometimes it was possibly more akin to a white-knuckle ride!! Haha). Seriously though, I feel as though Ian has prepared me not only to pass my test but to actually be a competent driver. Would absolutely recommend to anyone, he will make you feel comfortable behind the wheel and provide a good bit of chat too!!!
    Thanks sooo much Ian! Jody

    Ursula Rose

    happyhour22017 Ursula Rose passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School As a naturally anxious driver, it was really important to me that my instructor set me at ease and had a a very calming presence. Ian is such an instructor. He is patient and understanding, and calm and collecting at all times. He provides methodical and well structured lessons so that you progress steadily and come away from each lesson feeling that you are constantly improving. He made me conquer my nerves (which is no mean feat!) and has turned me into a confidant and competent driver. I cannot recommend Ian highly enough!

    Fionnuala Rose

    happyhour22017 Fionnuala Rose passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School Ian is a great driving instructor. He was very patient and cool as a cucumber in even the most trying circumstances. Nerves of steel I would say :)
    A very friendly and chatty individual, who sets you at complete ease. Thanks to Ian´s motorway lesson, I can now commute to Edinburgh.
    Only downside is I now miss the banter when I´m out driving solo! I would highly recommend Ian Sanderson.

    Jennifer F. Scammell

    happyhour22017 Jennifer F. Scammell passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School "I put off learning to drive for 15 years due to fear. So, it was with great trepidation that I began to take lessons with Ian Sanderson. From lesson one, however, I was reassured. Ian is an exceptionally good instructor - born to teach! It was such a pleasure to learn from someone who not only really knows his stuff, but communicates his knowledge so well, and clearly loves his job. I passed my test first time with only two minor faults - my proudest moment, and all credit goes to Ian for his expert tuition. I really miss my lessons and am planning to take advanced driving lessons from Ian in future. Dr Jennifer F. Scammell"

    Juliana Martin

    happyhour22017 Juliana Martin passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School ian was a terrific instructor who i would highly recommend to anyone! i was incredibly nervous my first lesson but he quickly put me at ease and helped me to build my confidence behind the wheel. he is extremely calm (even in pretty hairy situations!) and relaxed which helped me a lot. ian also makes sure to explain things clearly, is incredibly patient and makes sure you fully understand what you´re doing and different situations you may encounter. i found ian is very flexible and teaches in a way that suits you best, and gives clear advice on what you need to focus on practicing. he has really helped me to become a safe and confident driver and i have already recommended him to several friends!

    thanks ian!

    Kat Judge

    happyhour22017 Kat Judge passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School Ian Sanderson - I can´t even begin to explain this man! A true gent, with the patience of a saint.

    I started driving with Ian, having had a few lessons before with another instructor. I was extremely nervous, and I was a complete beginner when it came to the roads. Ian soon helped me put my nerves to rest. The thing that I loved most about Ian is, if I didn´t understand something, he would explain it in another ways even if it meant explaining something one hundred times - ha.

    If you are looking for a first class driving instructor I would not hesitate to recommend Ian! :)

    Kate Forsyth

    happyhour22017 Kate Forsyth passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School I would recommend Ian to anyone looking for a great driving instructor, he was patient, always calm and persistent. He never made me feel bad or tense if I made mistakes (which I did...a lot at the start). He was like a driving instructor and agony uncle rolled into one! Thank you Ian, for getting me to the stage of passing my test unscathed!

    Iain MacDonald

    happyhour22017 Iain MacDonald passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School Ian is a great driving instructor. I hadn´t even sat behind the wheel of a car when I started taking lessons and he had me driving home within no time at all! I was not able to practice in my own time, meaning his lessons were the only chance for me to drive, and I´m really impressed with how quickly I picked things up - I know that it has a lot to do with his teaching style - Ian is always calm and patient, with plenty of jokes thrown in for good measure. I´m extremely happy that I contacted him. The main reason I decided to take lessons with Ian initially was because he responded to my enquiries very quickly - it is clear that he invests a lot of personal time in his students. I passed first time and I expect to return for some additional courses in future.

    Rhys Martin

    happyhour22017 Rhys Martin passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School What can I say other than Ian has been an outstanding instructor. I dropped out of lessons for over 5 months and quickly found myself back on my feet as confident as I was before I fell away from the lessons. The fact Ian is a really nice friendly calm person also makes it much easier & helps with your progress. Would recommend 100 times over to anybody looking for a truly outstanding instructor.

    Harriet Bingham

    happyhour22017 Harriet Bingham passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School I was referred to Ian by a friend who also passed first time so I had high expectations! They were exceeded. From the first lesson, I felt comfortable, relaxed and confident. Ian has a great way of challenging you and leading you out of comfort zone without making you feel out of control or unsafe. Personality-wise you couldn´t ask for more from a person with whom you spend a solid hour in a confined space: Ian is friendly, chilled out and very easy to talk to and share a joke with. I found he got to know me and understand my personal learning style. I thoroughly looked forward to my Wednesday evening driving lessons and wouldn´t hesitate to recommend him to anyone who wants to enjoy the experience of learning to drive. He´s an absolute diamond. Thanks Ian!

    Thanks again and I´ll see you about the west end soon, I hope!
    Take care,
    Harriet

    Thanks again for all your help Ian.

    Martin McLaughlan

    happyhour22017 Martin McLaughlan passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School I located Ian via a search for instructors in West End of Glasgow. I consider this one of the best decisions I have made. I passed my test yesterday at first attempt and this would not have been possible without Ian.

    I was initially a very nervous driver and it took me a while to book lessons after not enjoying it with a previous instructor. Ian is calm, relaxed, good to talk with and clearly a very good instructor. More importantly, for me at least, is that he is patient at all times.


    I would highly recommend Ian to anyone.

    Neil Anderson

    happyhour22017 Neil Anderson passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School After learning to drive with Ian I passed the driving test on my first attempt. Ian was always enthusiastic, supportive and knowledgeable.

    Meena Ridha

    happyhour22017 Meena Ridha passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School Ian is everything you could wish for from a driving instructor. He was reliable, patient and he always made me feel relaxed, clam and safe when I was out driving. He was also very encouraging and had a great sense of humour. His method of teaching was excellent. Ian would break things down into stages so that it was much easier to grasp and understand. Without Ian I don’t think I would have passed my driving test with such confidence, many thanks once again for being the best driving instructor.

    THANK YOU

    Joanne Henderson

    happyhour22017 Joanne Henderson passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School Could not thank Ian enough for his exceptional teaching and patience, I passed first time and that is something tremendous, I was a nervous wreck when I first got in his car and really hard work lol but on a serious note would highly recommend as he´s a great guy, easy going, calm and kind.

    Matthew Harkness

    happyhour22017 Matthew Harkness passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School Learning to drive with Ian ticks all of the right boxes:

    · Experience. Ian not only knows his stuff, but he is excellent at communicating and explaining points clearly and simply. On the morning of my test, Ian’s insight and calming influence was invaluable.
    · Structure. From my first lesson with Ian it felt as if there was a clear plan in place to help me pass my test. Each lesson was tailored and structured to meet a particular objective and to achieve progress / build upon the previous week.
    · Professionalism. Ian was always on time, responded to texts / calls quickly, never made excuses and was very flexible.
    · Personality. If you can put aside the awful jokes, then you will struggle to find a nicer man than Ian. Ian strikes the right balance between being supportive and being honest, and you always feel like he is genuinely pulling for you and actually cares (I’m pretty sure he was more happy than me when I passed…)!

    Learning to drive is up there with getting your first house or getting married - I would gladly recommend that you do it with Ian (the driving part J).

    Susanna Oates

    happyhour22017 Susanna Oates passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School Ian is a great instructor. This was my fourth attempt at learning to drive; and the combination of Ian’s friendliness, flexibility and tenacity meant that I stuck with it this time. I passed my test first time and with only one minor – which is a massive achievement for me! And it was all thanks to Ian’s calm instruction and relaxed, encouraging manner.

    Gush gush gush. Thanks for all your help J

    Mary Begley

    happyhour22017 Mary Begley passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School After many, many years of taking lessons but never quite feeling confident as a driver or being close to passing I decided to switch on a recommendation from a good friend who passed first time with Ian. Hallelujah! In a matter of 6 months I passed my Theory first time and my practical first time - I am so delighted as this has changed my life. Ian is a pleasure to learn with. He is a talented teacher; friendly, professional and patient. He is reliable, reasonable and organised. If you want to pass your test and are committed to doing so, then Ian will push you and guide you - the best instructor I have ever had - and if I can do it? You can too! Forget the others - if Ian has a space? grab it!

    Alex Ferrier

    happyhour22017 Alex Ferrier passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School After a few years taking lessons on and off with other driving instructors, late 2015 I decided to hire Ian after a recommendation from my friends Mum and I never looked back!.

    Eve Kinniburgh

    happyhour22017 Eve Kinniburgh passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School Ian is a brilliant driving instructor. Every lesson he was always calm, very patient and polite. He made me feel confident in myself and safe behind the wheel. He explained things very clearly but was always obliging if I needed to go over things again. He is a good listener as well as a teacher, regularly asking me what I felt I needed to work on or what areas I felt least confident in and this really helped me to progress. Would definitely recommend Ian as an instructor to anyone. Thanks again Ian, Eve Kinniburgh

    Lewis Martin

    happyhour22017 Lewis Martin passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School Ian is a fantastic instructor and a great guy. I took several breaks throughout the duration of my lessons and each time Ian helped rebuild both my driving ability and confidence. I´d recommend him to anyone looking to learn to drive, he offers a great service and was always flexible with my constantly changing availability. Prior to starting lessons with Ian the prospect of driving a car seemed terrifying but now thanks to his great teaching I´ve passed and can look forward to buying my first car!

    Thanks again for all your help!
    Lewis.

    Daniel Baxter

    happyhour22017 Daniel Baxter passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School After almost 5 years, 2 different instructors and getting nowhere, I was recommended Ian. This was an excellent recommendation as prior to Ian i had very little confidence on the roads. However, after a few weeks, i felt more confident and could see the improvement in my driving, this spurred me on to want to pass. His patience and encouragement is great and i was able to pass within 7 months of taking lessons from him. I would highly recommend him to anyone and if you take on board all he says and follow his instructions you are sure to pass.

    thanks

    Emma Sandhu

    happyhour22017 Emma Sandhu passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School I managed to get by without driving for years, but when it became aparent that I really needed to get my license I turned to Ian, partly due to the excellent testimonials he´d had from other learners. What they´ve said is true. Ian is a great instructor, patient and calm and willing to expliain things as many times as necessary until they start to click. I always felt safe when I was driving and trusted his judgement about when to move on to more challenging driving and to my test. Having passed, I wish I´d started sooner. I´m really enjoying my new freedom to get out and about and will be contacting Ian about a Pass Pluss course in the near future. If you need a great driving instructor, look no further!

    Cheers,

    Emma

    Patrick Rose

    happyhour22017 Patrick Rose passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School Learning to drive with Ian was a pleasure. He was always very calm and I always received good feedback from him. Ian puts you at ease instantly and we spent many a lesson chatting away whilst gaining that crucial time on the road.
    He taught in ways I could pick up and understand easily and was always punctual while his communication with me was excellent.
    He truly is the best. Stop reading these testimonials and book a lesson, you will not look back.
    Thanks Ian!

    Samantha Mason

    happyhour22017 Samantha Mason passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School "Ian is truly the most fantastic teacher with everything you need to learn to drive. His teaching ability, patience and knowledge have helped me pass my test first time.

    Not only did Ian get me ´test ready´, he has given me the knowledge, skills and confidence that I once thought I´d never have. His teaching methods were exceptional and I can honestly say I learned something new during each lesson.

    Ian´s professionalism went above and beyond my expectations. He was very accommodating, took the time to explain things to me and stayed over his scheduled time on many occasions to help me.

    Having used two previous instructors, I have never felt as comfortable whilst learning to drive. Ian is friendly, funny and very down to earth. I enjoyed my lessons and looked forward to them every week because of that.

    Contacting Ian is the best decision I made. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Thank you so much for everything!"

    happyhour22017 Andrew Henderson passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School Ian makes you feel comfortable and his teaching technique is all together fantastic, with loads of patience he instills calmness and confidence.

    happyhour22017 Roy Skinner passed with Ian Sanderson Driving School Ian was the best driving instructor I’ve ever had. After having three previous driving instructors across the UK. I felt most comfortable with Ian and it didn’t feel like a burden going out for a lesson as it wasn’t awkward at all as he is extremely easy to talk too! He took me through everything and made me sure I felt confident on all aspects before my test. He covered every base of the test which was great as it improved my driving on different types of roads as well as reassuring me for the test. I couldn’t recommend him enough and he will make you feel more like a friend rather than a driving instructor, which is great especially if you get very nervous. I can’t thank him enough with helping me through my test. Thanks again Ian!

    I was referred to Ian by a friend who also passed first time so I had high expectations! They were exceeded. From the first lesson, I felt comfortable, relaxed and confident. Ian has a great way of challenging you and leading you out of comfort zone without making you feel out of control or unsafe. Personality-wise you couldn´t ask for more from a person with whom you spend a solid hour in a confined space: Ian is friendly, chilled out and very easy to talk to and share a joke with. I found he got to know me and understand my personal learning style. I thoroughly looked forward to my Wednesday evening driving lessons and wouldn´t hesitate to recommend him to anyone who wants to enjoy the experience of learning to drive. He´s an absolute diamond. Thanks Ian!

    Thanks again and I´ll see you about the west end soon, I hope!
    Take care,
    Harriet

    Like most of Ian’s clients I was introduced to him by word of mouth. A number of my friends passed first time so he seemed like the guy to go to. However, as an older pupil I was very nervous, not least about the responsibility of driving on busy roads and also the pressure of sitting a test. We got there eventually though, and what got me through was Ian’s patient, calm demeanour and his ability to clearly communicate the core concepts of driving with examples I could relate to. I’d recommend him as an excellent teacher.

    " Ian taught me to drive and I passed first time. As well as being very reliable he was always calm and understanding. Not being a natural driver he was good at making analogies so that I could understand things better!
    I wouldn´t hesitate in recommending him! "

    Ian is a fantastic instructor and a great guy. I took several breaks throughout the duration of my lessons and each time Ian helped rebuild both my driving ability and confidence. I´d recommend him to anyone looking to learn to drive, he offers a great service and was always flexible with my constantly changing availability. Prior to starting lessons with Ian the prospect of driving a car seemed terrifying but now thanks to his great teaching I´ve passed and can look forward to buying my first car!

    Thanks again for all your help!
    Lewis.

    Eve Kinniburgh

    Ian is a brilliant driving instructor. Every lesson he was always calm, very patient and polite. He made me feel confident in myself and safe behind the wheel. He explained things very clearly but was always obliging if I needed to go over things again. He is a good listener as well as a teacher, regularly asking me what I felt I needed to work on or what areas I felt least confident in and this really helped me to progress. Would definitely recommend Ian as an instructor to anyone. Thanks again Ian, Eve Kinniburgh

    Rachel Byars

    Ian was recommended to me by my mum´s friend after she passed her test first time. i was extremely nervous for the first few lessons, but i had nothing to worry about - ian was always very calm, he never raised his voice and always gave encouragement along with any criticism or points that had to be worked on. He planned the lessons to suit my learning pace and was very understanding of my ever-changing university timetable. i would not hesitate to recommend ian as a driving instructor. at first i was absolutely terrified, but grew to love it and passed my test first time.

    Sean Morgan

    Ian is not only an outstanding driving instructor but a great guy! I would happily recommend his services to anyone who wishes to become a safe and confident driver. I always felt safe behind the wheel with Ian there and it allowed me to look forward to my weekly lessons and pass quickly. Many thanks to you Ian!

    Neil Anderson

    After learning to drive with Ian I passed the driving test on my first attempt. Ian was always enthusiastic, supportive and knowledgeable.
    It was a pleasure to learn from Ian and I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone wanting to enjoy learning to drive.

    Ashley Davidson

    "I took driving lessons with Ian and passed first time ! I was a very nervous driver and he was very patient and took his time to explain things to me In a way I found easy to understand and help me to improve. After passing my test I took pass plus lessons with him and found that really built my confidence!"
    Ashley

    Sean Sproull

    Ian is a fantastic driving instructor. He helped me pass first time and it´s no surprise the first time pass rate among his students is so high. He´s very calm and assured when giving instruction and always friendly and relaxed so that I never felt under pressure. Due to his experience and professionalism I always felt in safe hands. I would highly recommend Ian to anyone that wants to learn to drive.

    Ninian Wilson

    learning how to drive with Ian was an absolute pleasure! Very Thorough and professional but also friendly. You will feel very well prepared as he doesn´t just teach you how to drive but the preparation for your test is really excellent and unbelievably helpful. I passed first time with Ian and so did my sister, Ian is the obvious choice if you´re looking for an instructor.

    Grace Kirkwood

    ian is a fantastic driving instructor and without him i don´t think i could have passed first time.

    he not only knows exactly what is required to pass the driving test but more importantly for you to become a safe and confident driver.

    he is very patient and knows when it is appropriate to push you further so that you are always progressing in each lesson. ian is excellent value for money and makes every lesson fun and enjoyable.

    i would highly recommend ian if you are thinking about learning to drive.

    James Johnston

    Ian i would like to thank you for your patience and dedication for teaching my profoundly deaf son James to drive you are a first class instructor thankyou he passed first time Mary Johnston

    Jennifer F. Scammell

    "I put off learning to drive for 15 years due to fear. So, it was with great trepidation that I began to take lessons with Ian Sanderson. From lesson one, however, I was reassured. Ian is an exceptionally good instructor - born to teach! It was such a pleasure to learn from someone who not only really knows his stuff, but communicates his knowledge so well, and clearly loves his job. I passed my test first time with only two minor faults - my proudest moment, and all credit goes to Ian for his expert tuition. I really miss my lessons and am planning to take advanced driving lessons from Ian in future. Dr Jennifer F. Scammell"

    Gemma Kennedy

    "I cannot recommend Ian highly enough as an instructor. I had failed my test with other instructors due to nerves. I passed first time with Ian! I found him to be a calming influence on me, who encouraged me to overcome the obstacles I had developed."

    Somayeh Afrasiabi

    I want to say thanks for all the help and effort you do to pass my driving test.
    Even though I was a nervous learner, you always treat me with patience and calmness,and you help me to achieve this unattainable goal which was getting my driving licence.
    Thanks a lot.

    Jamie Westwood

    would thoroughly recommend ian after using two instructors before who seemed disinterested and boring, to ian who helped me pass in a reasonably quick time but with the high skills needed that resulted in only 1 minor in the practical test. been driving for 2 years problem free thanks to all knowledge passed on by ian!

    Barry Agnew

    as a nervous driver, i benefitted greatly from lessons with ian - has a dynamic teaching style and tailored lessons to suit my needs. always patient and able to put me at ease, ian got me through what was one of the most stressful experiences i have encountered to date – my test!

    Kate Forsyth

    I would recommend Ian to anyone looking for a great driving instructor, he was patient, always calm and persistent. He never made me feel bad or tense if I made mistakes (which I did...a lot at the start). He was like a driving instructor and agony uncle rolled into one! Thank you Ian, for getting me to the stage of passing my test unscathed!

    Emma Sandhu

    I managed to get by without driving for years, but when it became aparent that I really needed to get my license I turned to Ian, partly due to the excellent testimonials he´d had from other learners. What they´ve said is true. Ian is a great instructor, patient and calm and willing to expliain things as many times as necessary until they start to click. I always felt safe when I was driving and trusted his judgement about when to move on to more challenging driving and to my test. Having passed, I wish I´d started sooner. I´m really enjoying my new freedom to get out and about and will be contacting Ian about a Pass Pluss course in the near future. If you need a great driving instructor, look no further!

    Cheers,

    Emma

    Annie Crabtree

    I was delighted to pass first time with Ian, thanks to his patient teaching style. I felt supported throughout my driving lessons and appreciated how Ian adjusted his explanations and teaching techniques to suit my learning style and frame of reference. I feel fully prepared for driving now!

    Kate Morgan

    Ian is an excellent driving instructor. I always felt calm and at ease during our lessons, which was a massive contrast to a previous instructor. He was very patient when I couldn’t get my head around things and I always looked forward to our lessons. I honestly could not recommend him enough and I would never have passed first time if it weren’t for him!

    Kind Regards,

    Kate

    Fionnuala Rose

    Ian is a great driving instructor. He was very patient and cool as a cucumber in even the most trying circumstances. Nerves of steel I would say :)
    A very friendly and chatty individual, who sets you at complete ease. Thanks to Ian´s motorway lesson, I can now commute to Edinburgh.
    Only downside is I now miss the banter when I´m out driving solo! I would highly recommend Ian Sanderson.

    Lorna Ronald

    After having lessons with another company for over a year, I really felt like I was getting nowhere and that my previous instructor was holding me back. I was very happy to be recommended Ian by a friend at university. After my first lesson with Ian I felt so much more confident and I had a clear vision of where my lessons where going to take me. All lessons were clear and easy to understand, not like my previous lessons! Ian is a very calm and friendly instructor and he was very accommodating in helping to work my lessons around my busy student nurse schedule. With Ian´s help I passed my test first time with only two minors, which I was over the moon with.
    I would like to thank Ian very much with all his help, I really thought I wasn´t cut out to be a driver.

    Andrew Henderson

    Ian makes you feel comfortable and his teaching technique is all together fantastic, with loads of patience he instills calmness and confidence.
    I´m really grateful to have taken lessons with him and would highly recommend, thank you once again for getting my family on the road, the Henderson lol 😁

    John Burridge

    If you are reading this then you have come to the right place. Ian got me from an absolute novice 46 year old to a first time pass. Could find no fault in Ian´s manner & professionalism - he´s calm, reassuring and an excellent teacher. What will i do with my Saturday mornings? Thanks again Ian.

    Daisy Grant

    Ian

    A big thank you Ian. I couldn´t recommend a better driving instructor to learn with in the west end of Glasgow. If you have very little driving confidence like myself he will help you every step of the way. He is very patient, understanding and enjoys a good laugh on a lesson but us is also a great teacher too.

    Ian is very professional and took the time to explain things if i was ever unsure while on a lesson. He will give you good advice on when you have booked your theory and explains the driving test when he feels you are ready to take it. At the end of each lesson, Ian would ask how i felt the lesson went and what areas i would like to work on and which i felt most confident to help me progress for my test. He is always on time for a lesson or if your need to change he will always manage to fit you in when the time suits you.

    Once again Ian thank you.

    Daisy

    Ryan Threlfall

    Ian is a outstanding driving instructor and I would recommend Ian to anyone as he was essential in my learning and through his instruction I achieved a first time pass.
    Ian is always on time,is very reliable and put me at ease as I knew I was safe under his instruction.
    He also offers a good form of teaching that effectively highlights skills and weakness´s.
    If your looking for driving lessons look no further than Ian sanderson.
    Thanks again Ian for all your help and I´ll see you on the road.

    Martin McLaughlan

    I located Ian via a search for instructors in West End of Glasgow. I consider this one of the best decisions I have made. I passed my test yesterday at first attempt and this would not have been possible without Ian.

    I was initially a very nervous driver and it took me a while to book lessons after not enjoying it with a previous instructor. Ian is calm, relaxed, good to talk with and clearly a very good instructor. More importantly, for me at least, is that he is patient at all times.


    I would highly recommend Ian to anyone.

    Jacqueline Cameron

    highly recommend ian as a driving instructor he is very patient and a felt very at ease with him me and my husband both went with ian and passed our driving test brilliant instructor

    Thomas Houston

    "Ian is a great driving instructor. Coming to driving a little later than most I thought the lessons were well planned and structured. I knew exactly what was expected of me and what was required to pass my test. Ian is very patient and all elements of driving, including manoeuvres, were clearly explained and demonstrated. I had exactly the right amount of lessons I needed to pass first time.
    I would recommend Ian to anyone as a driving instructor. No matter what age you are its money well spent."

    Mairi Whitelaw

    Ian is a fantastic driving instructor and I wouldn´t hesitate to recommend him to family and friends. He is friendly, reliable, always on time, knowledgeable and fun to learn with, making every lesson enjoyable. I found him to be very patient and encouraging when I had times of doubt, pushing me to my potential. With Ian´s teaching I passed first time and cannot thank him enough!!

    Ursula Rose

    As a naturally anxious driver, it was really important to me that my instructor set me at ease and had a a very calming presence. Ian is such an instructor. He is patient and understanding, and calm and collecting at all times. He provides methodical and well structured lessons so that you progress steadily and come away from each lesson feeling that you are constantly improving. He made me conquer my nerves (which is no mean feat!) and has turned me into a confidant and competent driver. I cannot recommend Ian highly enough!

    Meena Ridha

    Ian is everything you could wish for from a driving instructor. He was reliable, patient and he always made me feel relaxed, clam and safe when I was out driving. He was also very encouraging and had a great sense of humour. His method of teaching was excellent. Ian would break things down into stages so that it was much easier to grasp and understand. Without Ian I don’t think I would have passed my driving test with such confidence, many thanks once again for being the best driving instructor.

    THANK YOU

    Kate Wallace

    ian is an absolutely excellent driving instructor. as a result of ian’s professional, patient and friendly attitude, i am a confident and safe driver with good awareness when on the road. i have no doubt that ian’s aim was for me to pass first time and as quickly as possible. he is always reliable and was very flexible when my availability changed. he is very knowledgeable and explains things clearly, always making sure that you understand what he’s asking you to do. each week ian outlined objectives and learning points and made sure i was aware of the areas i needed to work on next time, which was really helpful. i would (and already have!) recommend ian to anybody. thank you so much ian!

    Mary Begley

    After many, many years of taking lessons but never quite feeling confident as a driver or being close to passing I decided to switch on a recommendation from a good friend who passed first time with Ian. Hallelujah! In a matter of 6 months I passed my Theory first time and my practical first time - I am so delighted as this has changed my life. Ian is a pleasure to learn with. He is a talented teacher; friendly, professional and patient. He is reliable, reasonable and organised. If you want to pass your test and are committed to doing so, then Ian will push you and guide you - the best instructor I have ever had - and if I can do it? You can too! Forget the others - if Ian has a space? grab it!

    Susanna Oates

    Ian is a great instructor. This was my fourth attempt at learning to drive; and the combination of Ian’s friendliness, flexibility and tenacity meant that I stuck with it this time. I passed my test first time and with only one minor – which is a massive achievement for me! And it was all thanks to Ian’s calm instruction and relaxed, encouraging manner.

    Gush gush gush. Thanks for all your help J


    Susanna Oates-but-soon-to-be-Keenan!

    Evgeny Kravtsov

    Ian is an excellent driving instructor. his patience, understanding and friendly teaching manner helped me get past my initial driving-related stress. he´s great at explaining driving concepts and finding and fixing errors. i would highly recommend ian to anyone looking for an enjoyable and informative learning experience.

    David Cleary

    "Ian is a brilliant instructor. Calm, knowledgeable, encouraging and a good laugh too! It was a very relaxed, productive time i spent with Ian and I managed to pass first time. Would recommend him to anyone.”


    Thanks again for all your help Ian.

    Roy Skinner

    Ian was the best driving instructor I’ve ever had. After having three previous driving instructors across the UK. I felt most comfortable with Ian and it didn’t feel like a burden going out for a lesson as it wasn’t awkward at all as he is extremely easy to talk too! He took me through everything and made me sure I felt confident on all aspects before my test. He covered every base of the test which was great as it improved my driving on different types of roads as well as reassuring me for the test. I couldn’t recommend him enough and he will make you feel more like a friend rather than a driving instructor, which is great especially if you get very nervous. I can’t thank him enough with helping me through my test. Thanks again Ian!

    Gavin Watt

    thanks very much for your help and getting me past my test in only 2 and a half months

    Brian Gaughan

    Ian was very patient and knowledgable throughout my lessons. His tutorage put me at ease at no time and guided me to a first time pass! Would recommend him to anyone.

    Sean Bankier

    Having spoken to friends and family about their learning experiences it demonstrated to me how lucky I was to have Ian as a driving instructor. Ian completely defies the stereotype of a driving instructor in order to make learning to drive an extremely enjoyable experience.

    Ian’s calm demeanour and clear instruction made sure that the entire time that I was in the car I felt confident and safe in my own abilities. His structured, progressive way of teaching is ideal as lessons are customised to the individual to ensure that weaknesses are improved upon and progress is made in every lesson.

    I would highly recommend Ian to anyone learning to drive as I could not have asked for a better driving instructor.

    Jody Allan

    Ian is a (bloody) brrrrilliant instructor; cool, calm, collected and patient. Dont think he panicked once (even tho sometimes it was possibly more akin to a white-knuckle ride!! Haha). Seriously though, I feel as though Ian has prepared me not only to pass my test but to actually be a competent driver. Would absolutely recommend to anyone, he will make you feel comfortable behind the wheel and provide a good bit of chat too!!!
    Thanks sooo much Ian! Jody

    Andrew Docherty

    Ian is a fantastic driving instructor who gave me both the technical skills and confidence to be able to drive.

    Our sessions were very laid back and Ian quickly put my at ease and really built my confidence. He regularly went above and beyond my expectations and took my driving to a level which I couldn´t have hoped for.

    I thoroughly enjoyed our sessions, they were fun and informal which made for a thoroughly enjoyable learning experience.

    I can´t thank Ian enough for all he has taught me and would encourage anybody considering taking lessons to book with Ian.

    Sarah Graham

    Ian is a great instructor, he was a great support and helped me to build my confidence in passing my test.
    I had many different instructors before ian, but he was the best one as he explains things in a helpful way.
    Ian is supportive and a good teacher.
    I still use his advice when driving.
    I would recommend ian to anyone who is wanting to learn to drive.

    Joanne Henderson

    Could not thank Ian enough for his exceptional teaching and patience, I passed first time and that is something tremendous, I was a nervous wreck when I first got in his car and really hard work lol but on a serious note would highly recommend as he´s a great guy, easy going, calm and kind.

    Jemma Byrne

    Ian has been an amazing driving instructor. He always made me feel comfortable and relaxed on the road and gave me the confidence I needed to pass my test first time. At the end of every lesson I was always sure about progress I had made and areas that needed to be worked on and I found that this really helped me to go into my test confident and aware of what I needed to do. Learning with Ian has been an extremely enjoyable experience and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is learning to drive.

    Matthew Harkness

    Learning to drive with Ian ticks all of the right boxes:

    · Experience. Ian not only knows his stuff, but he is excellent at communicating and explaining points clearly and simply. On the morning of my test, Ian’s insight and calming influence was invaluable.
    · Structure. From my first lesson with Ian it felt as if there was a clear plan in place to help me pass my test. Each lesson was tailored and structured to meet a particular objective and to achieve progress / build upon the previous week.
    · Professionalism. Ian was always on time, responded to texts / calls quickly, never made excuses and was very flexible.
    · Personality. If you can put aside the awful jokes, then you will struggle to find a nicer man than Ian. Ian strikes the right balance between being supportive and being honest, and you always feel like he is genuinely pulling for you and actually cares (I’m pretty sure he was more happy than me when I passed…)!

    Learning to drive is up there with getting your first house or getting married - I would gladly recommend that you do it with Ian (the driving part J).

    Samantha Mason

    "Ian is truly the most fantastic teacher with everything you need to learn to drive. His teaching ability, patience and knowledge have helped me pass my test first time.

    Not only did Ian get me ´test ready´, he has given me the knowledge, skills and confidence that I once thought I´d never have. His teaching methods were exceptional and I can honestly say I learned something new during each lesson.

    Ian´s professionalism went above and beyond my expectations. He was very accommodating, took the time to explain things to me and stayed over his scheduled time on many occasions to help me.

    Having used two previous instructors, I have never felt as comfortable whilst learning to drive. Ian is friendly, funny and very down to earth. I enjoyed my lessons and looked forward to them every week because of that.

    Contacting Ian is the best decision I made. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Thank you so much for everything!"

    Patrick Rose

    Learning to drive with Ian was a pleasure. He was always very calm and I always received good feedback from him. Ian puts you at ease instantly and we spent many a lesson chatting away whilst gaining that crucial time on the road.
    He taught in ways I could pick up and understand easily and was always punctual while his communication with me was excellent.
    He truly is the best. Stop reading these testimonials and book a lesson, you will not look back.
    Thanks Ian!

    David Callaghan

    ian is great i dont think i could have asked for a better driving instructor. he managed to make all my lessons fun and has loads of patience, thanks again.

    Dario Capaldi

    learning to drive with ian sanderson was an enjoyable learning experience. he is very knowledgeable and provided me with all the skills and information necessary to be a successful driver. patient, understanding and friendly, i wouldn´t recommend learning to drive with anyone else.

    Niall Simpson

    "Ian is a brilliant teacher who really understands what it’s like for a new driver. His clear instructions, detailed knowledge and calm demeanour are exactly what I needed to build up my skills and confidence. He’s a great judge of ability; every time we moved onto something new, I always felt ready for it.

    I was fairly nervous to start driving, and really didn’t believe that I could pass first time, but by the time I sat my test I had a lot of confidence behind the wheel. Cheers, Ian!"

    Kat Judge

    Ian Sanderson - I can´t even begin to explain this man! A true gent, with the patience of a saint.

    I started driving with Ian, having had a few lessons before with another instructor. I was extremely nervous, and I was a complete beginner when it came to the roads. Ian soon helped me put my nerves to rest. The thing that I loved most about Ian is, if I didn´t understand something, he would explain it in another ways even if it meant explaining something one hundred times - ha.

    If you are looking for a first class driving instructor I would not hesitate to recommend Ian! :)

    Niall MacKinnon

    Ian proved an excellent driving instructor. I will admit to having nerves about learning to drive, but even during my first lesson with Ian I was soon at ease. He was calm, patient and conscientious and his lessons quickly became a highlight of my week. I would be more than happy to recommend him to anyone looking for a skilled, professional and reliable driving instructor.

    Niall MacKinnon

    Niamh Maxwell

    Ian is a fantastic driving instructor, he was calm, patient and reliable. He made me feel calm and confident behind the wheel. Nothing was too much trouble even if he had to explain things over and over again to me. I would not hesitate to recommend Ian to others. Thanks again, Niamh Maxwell!

    Nicki Adams

    I highly recommend to book ian for your driving lessons. he´s very calm and patient, and if he can teach me he can teach anyone! I was a nervous driving pupil and couldn´t have asked for a better driving instructor who puts you at ease and is very helpful with techniques i found difficult ie reversing round corners. and i passed first time!

    Jo Bateman

    After twenty years of trying to pluck up the courage and plenty of nerves Ian finally got me through my test; first time!

    It would be fair to say I was a very nervous learner. I saw problems constantly and didn’t trust myself to do something so potentially dangerous. It was a relief when Ian understood this. Despite my ability to panic he always remained calm, sometimes it must have been very difficult for him to do so!

    Ian would gently get me to push myself and would never accept I couldn’t do it. If I didn’t understand something he would find another way to explain it. I valued this greatly.

    Ian is friendly, patient, empathetic and overall a great teacher. I have recommended to him to lots of people and they’re all happy with my suggestion. I have no hesitation in recommending him as an instructor.

    Raghad al saedi

    Hi Ian

    thanks a lot for your help and effort as that helped me to pass from first time, I can not thank you enough for your professionalism and commitment which enabled me to achieve the ultimate goal. I would recommend Ian if you seriously want to pass from first time with confidence.

    Juliana Martin

    ian was a terrific instructor who i would highly recommend to anyone! i was incredibly nervous my first lesson but he quickly put me at ease and helped me to build my confidence behind the wheel. he is extremely calm (even in pretty hairy situations!) and relaxed which helped me a lot. ian also makes sure to explain things clearly, is incredibly patient and makes sure you fully understand what you´re doing and different situations you may encounter. i found ian is very flexible and teaches in a way that suits you best, and gives clear advice on what you need to focus on practicing. he has really helped me to become a safe and confident driver and i have already recommended him to several friends!

    thanks ian!

    Eilidh Westwood

    ian was the obvious choice when deciding who to choose to be my driving instructor, as my older brother passed first time with ian. very patient and easy to understand when getting the hang of manoeuvres. thanks very much ian, without you i wouldn´t feel as confident a driver as i am!

    Daniel Baxter

    After almost 5 years, 2 different instructors and getting nowhere, I was recommended Ian. This was an excellent recommendation as prior to Ian i had very little confidence on the roads. However, after a few weeks, i felt more confident and could see the improvement in my driving, this spurred me on to want to pass. His patience and encouragement is great and i was able to pass within 7 months of taking lessons from him. I would highly recommend him to anyone and if you take on board all he says and follow his instructions you are sure to pass.

    thanks

    Gail Wilson

    ian is a reliable and patient instructor. he was conscious of being able to provide the number of lessons that i wanted a week and worked around my schedule. he made me feel comfortable and safe which was especially important for me having never sat in the drivers seat before! ian would make me laugh when i became frustrated at myself and ensured that i could drive safely and confidently before sitting my test. the lessons are great value for money in comparison to a lot of other instructors. i felt that ian was invested in me passing my test the first time and was rooting for me to do well throughout the whole experience.

    James Campbell

    Ian is a fantastic instructor. He has a great level of patience, and his knowledge of driving is second to none. I doubt I would have passed with any other instructor, and I would strongly recommend Ian to anyone wished to learn to drive. In short, Ian is in the Premier League of driving instructors!

    James Campbell.

    Ariana Capaldi

    When I was learning to drive I wanted an instructor who I felt comfortable and safe with, someone who was always patient and built up my confidence on the road and Ian Sanderson was all of those things. With his fantastic success rate and his knowledge and understanding of the area choosing him as an instructor was the easiest decision I ever made.

    Graeme Cameron

    Ian Sanderson is a first class instructor, he made me feel so relaxed and filled me with confidence, which kept me going even when I became frustrated. His tuition and guidance was excellent and I would recommend him to anyone.

    Iain MacDonald

    Ian is a great driving instructor. I hadn´t even sat behind the wheel of a car when I started taking lessons and he had me driving home within no time at all! I was not able to practice in my own time, meaning his lessons were the only chance for me to drive, and I´m really impressed with how quickly I picked things up - I know that it has a lot to do with his teaching style - Ian is always calm and patient, with plenty of jokes thrown in for good measure. I´m extremely happy that I contacted him. The main reason I decided to take lessons with Ian initially was because he responded to my enquiries very quickly - it is clear that he invests a lot of personal time in his students. I passed first time and I expect to return for some additional courses in future.

    After a few years taking lessons on and off with other driving instructors, late 2015 I decided to hire Ian after a recommendation from my friends Mum and I never looked back!. Ian´s business card is true word by word he is polite, friendly, patient and reliable, Ian has given me useful tips and advice which has helped me passed my test, Ian is without a doubt an excellent driving instructor to the highest standard, I would highly recommend him! :)

    What can I say other than Ian has been an outstanding instructor. I dropped out of lessons for over 5 months and quickly found myself back on my feet as confident as I was before I fell away from the lessons. The fact Ian is a really nice friendly calm person also makes it much easier & helps with your progress. Would recommend 100 times over to anybody looking for a truly outstanding instructor.
