    Barry truly is the best instructor around, he is friendly, approachable, funny and his teaching methods were the reason I have successfully passed my test !

    Barry tailors his training to the individual. On occasions when I was finding it difficult to learn certain exercises, Barry would take the time to go away and research alternative ways to learn.

    Barry was encouraging and helpful at all times which helped with my confidence to pass !

Even though we only had a handful of lessons his teaching methods are practical and he is excellent at picking up on potential issues and helps you realise where you can improve. My only regret is that I didn´t come to him from the start of my learning as undoubtably he would have got me through it sooner! Thank you very much Barry you are one in a million and I´m going to miss that beautiful A1!!!

    Fern

    Scooby2722017 Fern passed with cf14 School Of Motoring I would recommend Barry as an instructor to any of my friends. He made me feel completely at ease from the first time I met him and made learning to drive an enjoyable experience. Booking lessons online and making any changes to bookings was very easy to do so. Getting in touch with Barry was easy and he was flexible to work with picking me up from school especially. Barry was very supportive throughout my experience and I couldn´t have done it without him!!!

    Well Done & Many Congratulations Fern. You´ve been a fab student and more than deserved to PASS with all the hard effort you have put in. Please think of your parents now - speaking from experience, this is a brilliant moment for you, but becomes really scary for your parents as you ask to borrow the car! Take care and WELL DONE!

    Joe

    Scooby2722017 Joe passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Well Done Joe, Looking back that was easier than going to work today wasn´t it! Many Congratulations, richly deserved, now enjoy your freedom!

    James

    Scooby2722017 James passed with cf14 School Of Motoring FANTASTIC! I got in touch with Barry having read numerous positive reviews. I´ve had previous instructors where you are often on the road side studying the highway code or are very pushy with regards to lessons and pressure you to book numerous two hour lessons. Barry ensures you drive for the entirety of the lesson and actively encouraged me to cancel some lessons when he believed I was above test standard. Despite being busy (which is a good thing when selecting instructors), Barry easily fitted me into his timetable and ensured I kept driving and did not have long gaps so lesson availability is not an issue which is another positive I found. I would recommend Barry to anybody looking to learn or has had lessons previously like myself. As well as lessons Barry provides free online resources to help pass the theory test. I passed my theory and practical tests first time with Barry, he genuinely cares for his pupils and I strongly doubt there is a better instructor out there.

    Fantastic News. Great drive today James, and well done for standing your ground with the examiner. When he queried why you waited, you gave an excellent reply, he couldn´t argue with it. Really made up for you, drive safely in your car & many CONGRATULATIONS!

    Carys

    Scooby2722017 Carys passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Well Done Carys, I think I was more nervous than you! An excellent drive, you have worked really hard and more than deserved that PASS certificate today.

    Jason

    Scooby2722017 Jason passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Well Done Jason

    Excellent. Many Congratulations. First attempt and with a senior examiner. Just got to persuade somebody to buy you that mini now!

    Scooby2722017 Alice passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Amazing Alice! All in Just 9.50hrs (including your lesson prior to your test!) I would like to take all the credit, but you and you mum did the hard work. You´ve been a great student - now remember you promised to clean your car, so get to it! All the very best for the future, take care Barry.

    Oli

    Scooby2722017 Oli passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Brilliant! A mechanic with a licence, just what you needed. Well Done Oli, you really deserved that conquering your nerves and PASSED! Enjoy telling them in work, all the very best.

    Sara

    Scooby2722017 Sara passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Fantastic instructor! Really enjoyed learning to drive with Barry! One thing I struggled with was believing in my own driving ability, but Barry helped me overcome this and gave me a lot of confidence! I couldn´t of asked for a nicer instructor. Thank you very much, I appreciate all of your time and hard work!

    Hi Sara - What a fantastic result! All that´s left to do is go out and buy that car you were telling me about. I´m sure you will miss getting public transport, you will have to live with that - take care, and good luck with your events coming up.

    Mohammed

    Scooby2722017 Mohammed passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Magnificent! 17hrs of driving (including a FREE initial lesson) followed by your test today & just 3 minors PASSING first time. Made up for you, and excellent drive, many congratulations - Just do the same with your forthcoming exams now. Well Done.

    Fab Ffion

    Scooby2722017 Fab Ffion passed with cf14 School Of Motoring I could not have asked for a better instructor!! From not wanting to learn to drive, to getting excited for driving lessons, I think it´s fair to say I have thoroughly enjoyed learning! Barry makes learning fun and gives great feed back, always making you feel good even if you do make a silly mistake. I would recommended CF14 SOM to all my friends and some have already started using his services. Thank you very much! :).

    Many Congratulations & well done PASSING first time! You´ve been a terrific student throughout your lessons and a pleasure to teach. Really happy for you, enjoy your new found freedom and remember to drive safely, take care Barry.

    Cindy

    Scooby2722017 Cindy passed with cf14 School Of Motoring To the people who are interested in finding a driving instructor.
    I would highly recommend Barry from cf14 SOM. After failing twice previously, I was desperate to look for another instructor. I only found out about Barry through internet research and reading through the reviews here. I saw excellent reviews about Barry and decided to ask him for help.
    As a result, Barry didn´t disappoint me. I would say that he is an amazing (or in fact the Best) instructor! Barry has a lovely personality and is responsible, hardworking, honest, punctual and empathetic. He listens/pays attention to your problems and works closely with you to fix the problem enthusiastically. He is also extremely patient and friendly when it comes to correcting silly mistakes. He is always willing to help and also puts in his very best effort to make sure that you are a safe driver and would pass your test. He is also very organised and would work with you to produce a plan according to what´s best for you to pass your test. Last but not least, I felt that I had received an enormous amount of support on this stressful journey. :).

    Barry Barry!!!! Thank you so much for helping me pass my driving test! you´ve done a fabulous job! Like I said, you have all the good qualities of a star instructor! Thanks for working with me, especially when we have to shift things around because of the change in my work timetable that is beyond my control :P. Thanks for sharing the stress and joy of passing the test with me as well! Hope that you are well and see you soon! Take care :).

    What a relief for you! Fantastic day - Wonderful drive, just your medical exams to PASS now, that´ll be easy for you after this. Many Congratulations, already looking forward to working with you on your ´Pass Plus´ course. Good luck in Aberystwyth on your placement!

    Lisa

    Scooby2722017 Lisa passed with cf14 School Of Motoring After abortive attempts when I was younger I really had The Fear when I decided to try to learn to drive again. I´m normally a confident person but the idea of driving struck me with nerves and anxiety. My dad had just passed away and I really wanted to confront this fear and had invested a lot emotionally in passing. Barry was brilliant. He reassured me and stuck with me even when I had no self belief. I really thought I was going to be a lost cause and had left it too late and that there was too much of a mental barrier there (not to mention terrible memory!) but Barry had no doubt and all patience. Thank you so much! Hugely recommend.

    Thanks Lisa - I know how much you wanted this, so I´m really pleased, not to say proud of how well you´ve done. Enjoy your car & freedom from public transport, and remember I´m a call away if you need help in the future, Take Care Barry x

    Jack

    Scooby2722017 Jack passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Well well well, talk about PASSING during your meal break - then back to work, Jack you are one cool customer, many congratulations!

    Molly

    Scooby2722017 Molly passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Wouldn´t have been able to pass without Barry´s help! He´s an excellent instructor and really easy to get along with. I felt comfortable and safe and really enjoyed my lessons with Barry. He was very patient and took the time to explain anything I was´t sure about. I definitely recommend CF14 SOM to anyone looking for driving lessons.
    Thank you so much Barry! :).

    Great Result Molly! Really well done - fantastic drive and well deserved. Just hope your friend Shanice can do as well as you, when it comes to her turn. Enjoy your ´Mums´ car - or is it yours now! Take Care Barry x

    Phil

    Scooby2722017 Phil passed with cf14 School Of Motoring ´First Time´ with cf14 School Of Motoring!

    Barry is simply a fantastic instructor and a genuinely great guy. I had previously failed my test a couple of years back and only recently decided to try and give it another go, this time with Barry. After a few weeks of lessons the result was that I passed without any minors whatsoever and I now feel incredibly confident behind the wheel. To be honest I have no doubt that if I had had him from the beginning I would have passed first time. In short, Barry is a true professional and I can´t recommend him enough.

    What can I say, a blank test sheet showing a FAULTLESS drive. Wish I could take some credit, but honestly you did magnificently today and deserve a big round of applause. Really well done - not an easy achievement and it all seemed so easy for you! Fab.

Remember…"why put yourself under pressure" …I´ll remember forever!! Hehehe.

    Andrew

    Scooby2722017 Andrew passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Thanks to Barry I was able to pass first time with only one minor! Only wish I´d done this sooner! Would recommend to anyone wanting to learn to drive, everything is broken down into simple, easy to remember systems that are perfect for getting you through the test.
    Cheers Barry!

    Amazing, Just 1 minor - but I will forgive you for that! Fantastic Drive, Many Congratulations for PASSING first Time, but also on getting that job, double celebration for you.

    Well Done, and very best of luck for the future, Barry

    Hannah

    Scooby2722017 Hannah passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Gave me the confidence I needed to get me through my test after not so good experiences with previous instructors! Always up for a laugh, always had very chilled out and enjoyable driving lessons.

    Magnificent! Just 2 minors and a safe and confident drive. Please no more self doubt, you were always a good driver from the day I first met you, hopefully I simply guided you through to a PASS. Really well done, and good luck with your nursing degree!

    Kolie

    Scooby2722017 Kolie passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Thank you so much! I´ve had a few instructors over the years and was convinced I´d never pass. Barry is has been by far the best instructor I´ve had and I always recommend him. Barry´s honesty was appreciated. Thanks again Barry- though I will miss my counselling sessions.

    Thanks very much for that - I know how much this means to you and hopefully it will be a stepping stone to even better things ahead for you. Have a great Christmas & New Year - stay in touch, Barry

    Amy

    Scooby2722017 Amy passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Absolutely BRILLIANT. My first student PASSING the NEW Practical driving test, and FIRST TIME! You have been a terrific student, despite making me get up so so early for the last couple of months. Today, it all came together, by that I mean the rain, leaves falling into the windscreen, slippery road surfaces - but you remained cool calm and collected and despite the test taking 15 mins longer than the normal, aced it today.
    Really made up for you, many congratulations - but I wont miss the early starts! Take Care Barry x

    Helen

    Scooby2722017 Helen passed with cf14 School Of Motoring AMAZING, from this nervous woman to a cool customer, driving over Caerphilly Mountain, taking on the A470, dealing with that Sat Nav and driving into a Supermarket Bay and revering back out.

    Really happy day for me, so I cant imagine how you are feeling!

    Well Done Joe

    Nicole

    Scooby2722017 Nicole passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Absolutely fantastic! Brilliant drive today, for a time I wondered if you were ever coming back - I think the examiner enjoyed your driving that much, she kept you out longer. Did you say you are too young to be driving, not now - get your dads car sorted, and I will see you on the roads.

    Well Done, Take Care Barry x

    Dominic

    Scooby2722017 Dominic passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Many Congratulations & very well done! I would like to take credit, but in all fairness you were very good from day 1, your instructor from home taught you to a good standard, I just took that to test standard!

    All the best at Uni, take Care and enjoy your new found freedom.

    Aaron

    Scooby2722017 Aaron passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Fantastic. Just 16.50hrs of lessons with me, including the lesson prior to test - PASSING first time!

Take Care Barry

    Dan

    Scooby2722017 Dan passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Sat Nav Dan!

    Many Congratulations. It´s taken 5 years to get here, but today you can say you own a FULL driving licence, and doesn´t that make getting back and forth to work so much easier. Really made up for you, you worked ever so hard seen I began teaching you, have a great Christmas and please dont leace anything else in my car!!!

    Fab Faria

    Scooby2722017 Fab Faria passed with cf14 School Of Motoring (First Time With cf14 School Of Motoring)

    Barry is extremely prepared, organised and just amazing at what he does!! I only had a couple of lessons with him and I adjusted into the car and the way he taught the manoeuvres so well. If it wasn´t for him and his patience and belief in my driving I would not have passed today!!

    Magnificent & Well Done. You kept your nerve and concentration and simply nailed it today. I´m sure you agree it was worth getting up early for - all you need to do now is save up for that car.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family, I´m so so, pleased for you....

    Nirosha

    Scooby2722017 Nirosha passed with cf14 School Of Motoring What a fantastic Christmas present!
    Really well done, I know how much this meant to you, and ever so pleased you managed to PASS in time for Christmas. Take care and drive carefully....

    Bethan

    Scooby2722017 Bethan passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Fantastic! Well Done Bethan - I said you could PASS before the end of the year, left it a bit late though. Many Congratulations, drive carefully and enjoy your car.

    Danielle

    Scooby2722017 Danielle passed with cf14 School Of Motoring How did you do that?

    Receiving a text message the hour before your test asking to be picked up from work, through town in rush hour traffic - is not good for my health, goodness knows what you were like! That said, you had no time to panic - getting to the test centre with seconds to spare and nailing it today, simply brilliant. Hope you have started to recover from a GREAT day for you, so so pleased, well done and take care.

    Byron

    Scooby2722017 Byron passed with cf14 School Of Motoring (First Time With cf14 School Of Motoring)

    A truly amazing instructor!!

    I had a really bad experience with another instructor years ago which lead to me not completing my driving test, but with Barry and his exceptional teaching and calm approach, it really pulled me back into the driving seat to pass my test the first time.

    After every lesson I grew in confidence and became more and more relaxed with driving again and ready for the next lesson.
    Thank you Barry for your amazing teaching, guidance and support.

    100% recommended!!

    WOW - Thanks for such a quick and glowing review. I only asked for a few words, people will think I wrote this myself, seriously though - Really well done & I hope you go on to get that dream job of yours. Take care of your wife and little baby,
    Kind Regards
    Barry

    Anna

    Scooby2722017 Anna passed with cf14 School Of Motoring I cannot thank Barry enough. Not only is he a wonderful teacher but he is also a lovely guy. I found him to be incredibly patient and encouraging, he was willing to go out of his way with lessons and tests to help me. I would recommend him to anyone, I was very nervous and unsure and I have now past, something I never thought possible.
    Also it is very easy to book, his website makes everything very simple. Additionally he seems to work better hours than a lot of driving instructors, meaning is you are working or studying full time you will still be able to get plenty of lessons in. Finally Barry´s car is so easy to drive, it is like a second instructor. In sum, the only negative is that once you pass you don´t get to hang out with Barry once a week and inevitably have to swap his lovely car for your own old banger. :).

    Thanks for such a lovely review Anna - I know you will miss my car more than me - but I´m confident I will see you on the road in a pretty decent car of your own, and pretty soon as well. I will miss our chats, and thank you for making my job so easy. Take Care & WELL DONE!

    Bubakar

    Scooby2722017 Bubakar passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Thanks again barry ! You are brilliant instructor Can´t thank u enough for helping me with patient and professional manners once again thank so much to make that happened.

    Brilliant News, Well Done Buba, just 2 minors - when in all honesty with every other driving test being postponed today due to the inclement weather, a great result, not just that an excellent student! Enjoy your new licence and well done again!

    Rachel

    Scooby2722017 Rachel passed with cf14 School Of Motoring What a driving instructor! Put up with my confusion over left and rights and gave me the confidence to pass my test first time. Learning to drive in his car was a delight, a lot smoother than my old run around but definitely helped in my passing. Highly recommend! Thank you again so much for all your support and help during our two months of lessons! Could not have done it without you.

    My goodness, what a quick worker you are! Just 2 months of lessons, PASSING first time - and buying your first car within hours of passing. When you told the examiner you intended to buy a car later today - I thought you were joking, but NO, test passed, car bought - and now you have your independence. So so pleased for you. Drive carefully and WELL DONE!

    Sophie

    Scooby2722017 Sophie passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Magnificent, very well done Sophie. The examiner even complimented you on your use of mirrors and said you made a great start to his week with such a nice drive. Now you can drive to school and enjoy the freedom of not having to wait for lifts. Hope the party went well today,

    Take Care & very well done x!

    Anishka

    Scooby2722017 Anishka passed with cf14 School Of Motoring (First Time With cf14 School Of Motoring)

    What a result! Great PASS only 2 minors - with the examiner being examined by the ´Test Centre Manager in the back of the car! Then the curve ball, taking you onto a dual carriageway in rush hour traffic extending your test by a good 10 minutes.

    Really made up for you today, good luck with your future exams, take care and drive safely.

    Barry

    Fantastic teacher! Really calm and patient! Definitely increased my confidence as a driver! Very lucky to have such a kind and supportive instructor like Barry! :).

    Gemma

    Scooby2722017 Gemma passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Barry has been an incredible instructor, patient, kind and an incredibly clear and calm instructor. I came back to driving after losing confidence and found it difficult to find someone who could teach me to drive in a way that suited me, that was until I met Barry. I can not fully explain the impact his approach has had but he is unique, flexible and persistent, constantly encouraging and all round a lvoely guy!

    What a great start to the day! Just 2 minors - a fantastic drive and now the proud holder of a FULL driving licence. So so pleased for you Gemma, you worked ever so hard and really deserved to PASS in style which you easily did today. Many Congratulations, drive carefully, I will be looking out for you on the roads.

    Carmel

    Scooby2722017 Carmel passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Barry was brilliant! I had lessons years ago and finally decided it was about time I learned and passed. After a terrible start with another instructor knocked my confidence in my ability I contacted Barry. He was quick to reply and his online booking system meant I was booked in the same day. Barry was proactive, helpful and believed in me enough to book the test- and it paid off! His friendly helpful manner soon had my confidence up and he made sure I was ready. The lessons were great and the option for reflection and feedback after was great too. You can tell Barry loves what he does and is dedicated to giving his pupils the best experience and a skill for life. I passed first time with just 2 minors on the Emergency stop- a manoeuvre I hadn´t practiced in a long while, so I´m very pleased and trust myself to be a good, safe driver thanks to Barry.

    Brilliant news, first time of asking and you nailed it with just 2 minors - and that was only the Emergency Stop!

    Well Done Carmel, now it´s decision time, stay with the scooter, or move to the warmth of a car!

    Take Care, Barry

    Jeffrey

    Scooby2722017 Jeffrey passed with cf14 School Of Motoring It was a joy and delight to have my weekly lesson with Barry. The lessons were always well thought out where we considered my weak points and work on them. His patience and encouragement gave me the confidence to pass the test first time and now onwards to driving independently on the streets! I shall miss our Saturday lessons together!

    Brilliant, Many Congratulations & Well Done! First Time PASS - but still cant believe you are going straight back to work. Fantastic achievement, now you can get yourself a car and drive to all your patients!

    Well Done again,

    Drive safely, Barry

    Mari

    Scooby2722017 Mari passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Fantastic, really well done. The examiner got a bit concerned when he didn´t know where the Sat Nav was taking you, but said the driving was excellent! Many Congratulations, time to get insured on your parents car and ask to borrow it for school.

    Well Done, drive safely - Barry x

    Sophie

    Scooby2722017 Sophie passed with cf14 School Of Motoring I couldn´t have asked for a better driving instructor- Barry was excellent. I previously learnt with an instructor back home but stopped as I wasn´t getting on that well, but I only had a handful of lessons with Barry before I was ready to take my test- and I passed first time with two minors. He is very patient and adapts his style of teaching to your personal needs and personality. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing lessons. Thanks Barry!

    BRILLIANT! Just 2 minors, passing first time, the only thing you have to worry about now is you have no ID until your FULL licence comes. Many Congratulations & Well Done!

    Andrew

    Scooby2722017 Andrew passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Would highly recommend Barry. Very honest, helpful and supportive. Brilliant service and a very likeable person. Thanks for getting me through my test!

    Thank goodness for that! Excellent drive today - now just persuade your better half that it´s your turn to take your car out.
    Best Wishes, drive safely Barry!

    Alana

    Scooby2722017 Alana passed with cf14 School Of Motoring I am very happy I chose Barry as my instructor, he was fantastic! He went out of his way to make sure I had all the information I needed and worked with me to get in all the lessons I needed before my test. He was extremely helpful in working to find me a better test date after the original one was cancelled. He was very nice, encouraging, and patient and kept me aware of everything I needed to know. Because of him, I passed on the first attempt! I will definitely recommend him to everyone 100 times over!

    Thanks Alana, I know how busy you are so really appreciate your time to write this lovely review for me. Hope the new job is going well -Take Care Barry

    Christie

    Scooby2722017 Christie passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Barry, thank you so so much for putting up with my terrible sense of direction and constant sighing. You really helped me combat my initial anxieties and allowed me to feel safe and competent behind the wheel, whilst having a laugh and enjoying learning to drive.

    Couldn´t have done it without your patience and sense of humour! Looking forward to completing pass plus!

    Magnificent Christie - after the DVSA cancelling your test when we turned up for it last Friday, you deserved PASSING TODAY. Fantastic effort, really well done, see you on ´Pass Plus´ - but first things first; go and put a deposit down on that car! Thunderbirds are go! Take Care Barry x

    Becky

    Scooby2722017 Becky passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Thanks Barry!! I´m so chuffed! Thank u for all your patience xx

    Emily

    Scooby2722017 Emily passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Amazing, what a brilliant achievement!

    Not only PASSING first time - taking part in the Sat Nav Trial Test, but also had an observer sat in the back of the car doing a time and motion study; and then only 3 minors, great result.

    Really made up and pleased for you Emily, now when you start Uni in Southampton, you will be able to drive back home.

    Take Care & WELL DONE!

    Manon

    Scooby2722017 Manon passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Phew - All Done, and PASSED with the New Sat Nav Trial Test. Time to sit back, take the £40 they are going to pay you for taking it, and fingers crossed, you may even win a car for taking part.

    Thrilled for you today; hope your parents wern´t too angry that you didn´t go to the gym like you said but took your driving test and nailed it!

    Take Care, drive safely & Many Congratulations!

    Jason

    Scooby2722017 Jason passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Big thank you to Barry CF14 School of Motoring.... i passed my driving with barry patience and massive experience of teached me to drive ... AMAZING INSTRUCTOR....

    Barry

    Sabrina

    Scooby2722017 Sabrina passed with cf14 School Of Motoring FANTASTIC, I must thank you Sabrina for teaching me how to get my students through their driving test! SIMPLY make sure they are not feeling well on the day of their test, say have ´flu´ like symptoms. drive to the test centre in perfect conditions, warm and sunny, take your test, during which time it decides to rain, sleet, even a bit of snow I think, but you must have had all 4 seasons as your sister said on your test. Ask the examiner if you have failed, whilst still on your test, return and relax, nailed it! I dont think I will use that system too much, but it worked for you. Many Congratulations, Take Care Barry x

    Both me and my sister were taught by Barry. We both enjoyed every lesson and were made to feel comfortable whilst driving and Barry is great to have a laugh with!! Huge thank you for getting us through our tests !! Only down side, we will miss our lessons!

    Thanks Sabrina, It was great working with you both. Hope you can prise the keys away from Nicole, and you get your chance to drive the car. Take Care both Barry xx

    Jack

    Scooby2722017 Jack passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Simply Superb!

    First time of asking and with just 2 minors, you have got to be pleased. Really well done, good luck trying to get the keys from your mum for her car.

    Drive safely & take care, Kind Regards Barry

    Amaani

    Scooby2722017 Amaani passed with cf14 School Of Motoring What A Great Birthday Present!

    Well Done Amaani, passing on your 1st attempt, a day before your 19th birthday. It was a pleasure teaching you to drive, have a great day tomorrow and drive safely. Take Care Barry x

    I really enjoyed my driving lessons with Barry. He made me feel relaxed and confident. He is always encouraging and extremely patient even with repetitive mistakes! I will definitely recommend him to others and my younger sisters are already waiting in the wings to learn with him. Thanks Barry!
    Your Response : Thanks Amaani - It was a real pleasure seeing you transform from complete beginner to PASSING first time. I wont however miss you putting on the windscreen wipers instead of the indicators! Simple mistake and very confusing for you as your Grandad´s car had them on the opposite sides.

    Many Congratulations again, and well done, FULLY DESERVED!

    Josh

    Scooby2722017 Josh passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Congratulations Josh, just in time to take delivery of your car next week .... Phew!

    Andy

    Scooby2722017 Andy passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Fantastic teacher!

    Takes the time to help you relax and enjoy what can be a very nerve racking experience. Sets up lessons to suit what you want to learn and how to learn it. Patient and very encouraging too.

    Thanks Barry!

    Brilliant, Sat Nav test, lovely day and conditions, couldn´t have been better for you today. None the less, you still had to hold your nerve, be mindful of the roundabouts, but great drive and FULLY deserved. Well Done mate, just go and tell everybody now!

    Liam

    Scooby2722017 Liam passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Fantastic! Well Done Liam - Those traffic lights nearly caused you a problem, but that charm and wit you used on the examiner worked wonders! Have fun looking for a car, and drive carefully.

    Chris

    Scooby2722017 Chris passed with cf14 School Of Motoring WELL WELL WELL! When I met you (last month) you told me you had no previous driving experience and your test was next month, I thought you were joking. Then you told me you were returning home to Hong Kong this week so only had ONE attempt to PASS and get through this. I thought you were mad; but the hard work you put in has been nothing less than AMAZING, passing in just over 4 weeks, and with just 2 minors, and just 28 hours of lessons. Well Done, don´t tell everybody though, that was stressful for me too! *** WELL DONE ***

    Becky 22/06/2016

    Scooby2722017 Becky 22/06/2016 passed with cf14 School Of Motoring FABULOUS, What a day!

I´m so happy and proud of you, just a few short weeks ago, you couldnt drive, TODAY - it´s what car shall I buy. Fabulous day, Many Congratulations & WELL DONE YOU.

    Ellen

    Scooby2722017 Ellen passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Thoroughly enjoyable lessons - Barry is always very patient and covers what the student wants to do to feel comfortable on the road, rather than just to pass the test. I would definitely recommend to anyone learning to drive in the area!

    What a star! Brilliant drive with an examiner who was suffering with ´flu´ and sharing their experience with both of us. I´m just glad all that sneezing and blowing didn´t put you off. Really safe and great drive, have a great trip back home, hope your sister is not too jealous!

    Take Care Barry x

    Sam

    Scooby2722017 Sam passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Superb! Just 2 minors and an excellent drive today Sam. Many Congratulations, richly deserved - a natural driver with loads of ability behind the wheel, WELL DONE!

    Kirsty

    Scooby2722017 Kirsty passed with cf14 School Of Motoring After moving from Liverpool to Cardiff two weeks ago for a new job, I was in a rush to find a new instructor. I had rebooked my test after failing it the first time in Liverpool, and turned to Barry after reading all the positive reviews online. I couldn’t have asked for a better driving instructor! Barry is calm and patient and I was never afraid to ask questions, we also had a laugh along the way too :-) The lessons are completely worth the money and not to mention the smooth drive in the Audi, which I will definitely miss. Thank you so much Barry for helping me become a confident driver - I passed today with just 1 minor!

    After your first lesson with me I was ´slightly´ worried, but after that there was no looking back. Great driver -very best of luck for the future! x

    Magnificent - Just the 1 minor and a great drive! What did the examiner say again.. Oh yes ´Cool as a cucumber´

    Brilliant news, now go look for a car and start driving to work!

    Made up for you, Many Congratulations Barry x

    Grant

    Scooby2722017 Grant passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Really enjoyed learning to drive with Barry, flexible lessons and we worked at the pace that suited me, he doesn´t just teach me how to drive, but how to be a safe driver.


    Fantastic Effort, you pulled that out of the bag didn´t you!

    You are one of those strange persons that under pressure you excel. You didn´t have time to panic - Remembered your mirrors (just about) and with a great Bay Park, must be happy that it´s all over now.

    Sit down relax... And Many Congratulations on being a FULL licence holder!

    Ryan

    Scooby2722017 Ryan passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Many Congratulations Ryan!

    You had be worried when you raced out of the car park with the examiner, but quickly composed yourself. Now was that luck that I took you down the dual carriageway and practised the parallel park - the same as your test route today, or did you know something I didn´t! FANTASTIC, WELL DONE

    Ben

    Scooby2722017 Ben passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Flexible lesson plans that were personally tailored to my requirements. Made me feel confident that passing the test was just a formality after only a short stretch of lessons.

    Fantastic day for you Ben, you were always a good driver, hopefully I just gave you the confidence to cross the line.

    What a great start to the week for you! Just 2 minors and a FULL driving licence for all your hard work!

    Fantastic Student, Brilliant Drive Today.

    Many Congratulations!

    Jessica

    Scooby2722017 Jessica passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Barry is an amazing instructor, he´s friendly, funny and a fantastic man. Had an amazing time in every lesson and if I ever had a question he was able to answer. I have dyslexic and found Barry to be understanding and patient. I´ll miss our weekly lessons.

    Just 2 minors - FIRST TIME Pass, terrific drive today - no pressure when your dad used to be a driving instructor, but perhaps you can teach him a thing or two now, and promise never to forget your Pina Calada!!

    Becca

    Scooby2722017 Becca passed with cf14 School Of Motoring I really enjoyed the lessons with Barry, he was very patient and helped to build my confidence when I was driving. He explained everything really well and I wasn´t afraid to ask questions. Thank you Barry for giving me the confidence and knowledge to enable me to pass first time.
    Thanks Becca,

    It´s really nice when a student with no previous driving experience passes FIRST TIME & so quickly, it´s a great achievement! Thanks for your review, I´ve already seen you out and about on the road, so BRILLIANT & well done!

    Harry

    Scooby2722017 Harry passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Barry has been a great driving instructor, very helpful and patient. Great at inspiring confidence and always very encouraging.

    BRILLIANT! No need for a trip to Newport test centre after all - a 1st time PASS, great drive today, just glad I reminded you of the difference between traffic lights & Pedestrian crossings! - Phew.

    Jess

    Scooby2722017 Jess passed with cf14 School Of Motoring I would definitely recommend Barry as a driving instructor. He’s an incredibly calm, patient and encouraging teacher, who also put up with all my swearing with good grace whenever I made a mistake. His timings were flexible and the lessons geared to suit what I needed to work on. He’s taught me to drive safely and responsibly. I’m so pleased to have passed my test! I’ve always been really nervous about learning to drive so thank you for help get across the finish line :).

    FANTASTIC, slow and sure wins the race - I told you it was all about being safe, and today you proved that! Great result now go off to America and enjoy that Conference!

    Murat

    Scooby2722017 Murat passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Barry is an exceptionally honest and competent driving instructor. He has a genuine interest in making his students not only pass but also become safe drivers. So happy with the money and time I spent on my driving lessons with him.
    Many Congratulations Murat.

    No more roundabouts for me to talk you through - PASSING with just 4 minors. Great Effort!

    Take Care driving your children around, my first Husband and wife team to both PASS!

    Shandeet

    Scooby2722017 Shandeet passed with cf14 School Of Motoring ´OMG´ Just 2 minors, no mirror faults and a FANTASTIC 1st time Pass. All that nagging I gave you must have paid off because that was a GREAT result. Just ask work to give you a Company Car & Discount on your insurance and you will be laughing! Take Care.

    Fatima

    Scooby2722017 Fatima passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Passed first time! Barry is an incredible driving instructor, he is calm, patient and a relaxing person to have in the car while learning. He is flexible and works around your timing and needs and would recommend Barry to anyone. It was always funny to go out and drive with him as he made it interesting everytime. He taught me how to drive safe and responsibly and I am so glad I passed my test the first time.

    Fabulous Fatima - PASSING first time! I really don´t like being in the back of the car on ´tests´, but will always sit there is asked! Today you drove brilliantly and deserved that Pass Certificate, please dont lose it, and remember to send off for your FULL licence, Many Congratulations!

    Robert

    Scooby2722017 Robert passed with cf14 School Of Motoring An excellent instructor. Barry has a great attitude that helps you to learn, and with his capable tuition I was able to pass first time. Extra credit for having a superb learner´s car and for intelligent use of technology - it´s very useful to be able to watch the footage of your drive and work out what you could improve. Also very punctual and friendly. A*.

    2 minors, beating your girlfriends score and finally dismissing the embarrasment of the ´Green Provisional Licence´. I did tell the other Instructors today, I would eat my empty plastic cup of coffee if you didn´t PASS FIRST TIME, so thanks for not putting me through that. Many Congratulations!

    Harri

    Scooby2722017 Harri passed with cf14 School Of Motoring The teaching standard was superb, my instructer, Barry, helped me a lot with building my confidence on the road and was very clear with explaining maneuvours, driving techniques etc. There was clear progress from one lesson to the next, when I´d make a fault in my driving he´d make sure I´d overcome it by the end of the lesson. We´d also frequently go over the test routes and things to do and not to do during the test. I can say that the service provided by CF14 driving school was excellent and I´d definitely recommend it.

    My colleague recommended Barry to me as he had passed first time with him and was glowing in his praise of Barry´s patience and teaching skills. His praise was justified. Barry taught my son Harri to drive and he passed his test first time despite being very nervous. I told him to remember everything that Barry taught him and to keep calm. I will ask Barry to teach my other son when he is 17. I would recommend CF14 School of Motoring without reservation. Thank you Barry!


    Fantastic, great effort Harri - All that hard work with both your mum and myself has finally paid off, PASSING first time. Well Deserved and many congratulations, dont forget to thank your mum!

    Ottillia

    Scooby2722017 Ottillia passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Barry is very professional while maintain an approachable and friendly manner. Barry used iPad as teaching aid, it really helped me, he gave me confidence. I would recommend CF14 School of motoring to anybody who is choosing between driving school in Cardiff.
    Thanks a lot Barry.

    Remind me - how many lessons, how many instructors and how many years has it taken to finally get you here today? Regardless - all that hard work, determination and effort finally paid off with a great result. Very proud of you, take care and well done!

    Catia

    Scooby2722017 Catia passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Having left it until my thirties to learn to drive, I was sceptical that I would be able to learn to drive in a few months and pass my test, but I am happy that I managed both!
    Barry just filled me with bundles of good advice and confidence and understood where I was at and was instrumental in facilitating an action plan that would overcome the great challenge that I faced. I thoroughly recommend him to anyone who needs a firm but sensitive hand. I remembered his positive words of encouragement and advice throughout the test and I believe it helped to get me through.Highly recommended. A brilliant instructor!!

    Barry, thank you so much!

    MAGNIFICENT EFFORT, Well Done Catia! Now you can take your kids to Scotland just like you promised them, or did they promise you. Whatever - fabulous day for, and I´m really made up for you. Take Care Barry x

    Becky

    Scooby2722017 Becky passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Barry is an exceptional instructor! It´s a tough (and brave) ask to get someone with my neurosis, who doesn´t know her right and left to feel comfortable driving a manual car, let alone to pass my test first time (must be the policeman in him), but Barry believed in me, and made every lesson fun and enjoyable. After every lesson I felt I had improved (although I never told him that), and obstacles that petrified me at the beginning (roundabouts, hills, using mirrors to name but a few) were a breeze by the time my test date was looming, thanks to Barry´s calm, knowledgeable and professional demeanour. I couldn´t have done it without him, and I would thoroughly recommend Barry and CF14SOM to anyone looking for a driving instructor.

    BRILLIANT! Just the 3 Minors, (all of which you knew about), but what a great drive! Time to apologise to your husband for being grumpy this morning, but your birthday and a great new job to look forward to.

    FAB Student, Take Care & Best Wishes! x

    Emma

    Scooby2722017 Emma passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Thank you so much it ment a lot to pass I´m over the moon X

    (Fist Time With c14 School Of Motoring)

    Phew Emma, with just 3 days before your Theory Test expires you left that late didn´t you. Just 5 minors and a lot of sniffing from a cold that you are suffering, you must be one happy woman today. Many Congratulations, Well Done!

    Tomas

    Scooby2722017 Tomas passed with cf14 School Of Motoring BRILLIANT! Just 18 hours of lessons prior to your test today, less the first lesson which we gave you FREE and a FULL Driving Licence. Just 4 Minors, but fantastic drive over a difficult route, what a great result.

    Well Done & Many Congratulations!

    Lewis

    Scooby2722017 Lewis passed with cf14 School Of Motoring What a Day!

    I always knew you were good enough to PASS, but was worried about your nerves. I dont know why - just 2 minors, a hesitation and manoeuvre and a lovely PINK licence to look forward to. That together with your new job as head chef starting today - that must be a big weight off your shoulders. WELL DONE!

    Sian

    Scooby2722017 Sian passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Thanks to your tuition Barry, I went on an exciting shopping trip today! A Renault Clio 1.5 diesel, with leather seats and keyless entry/start. My husband is super pleased with the purchase, as you can tell! I´m ever so grateful for you teaching me a life-changing skill. Thank you so much. xx

    (First Time With cf14 School Of Motoring)

    Well Sian, it´s not how or even when you started, it´s how it finishes - and you ended on a real ´HIGH´ superb drive, held your nerve and should have completed this years ago!
    Many Congratulations, job well done - Enjoy the challenge of finding that all important car.

    Take Care, Barry x

    Amy

    Scooby2722017 Amy passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Where do I start Amy?

    Every time I took you for a lesson, my head said - you can´t possibly be ready for a test - yet every time you drove around, I kept saying how well you were driving. To be honest, you had a mere 17 hours of lessons - the first lesson was FREE so 16 hours up until your test date. So even now I´m saying "How did you do that?" You are a natural born driver, extremely talented so ***Many Congratulations ***, what an effort, just make sure you do the same in your exams now!

    Take Care and WELL DONE!

    Tim

    Scooby2722017 Tim passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Learning to drive with Barry has been an absolute joy. He´s incredibly friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. It´s so clear that he cares about you as an individual. I couldn´t have asked for a better instructor. Very nice car too!

    Many Congratulations! Magnificent effort & fantastic drive today once you settled those nerves. All we need now is for you to get that new job & you will have a Halloween to celebrate.

    Really Well Done!

    Lucy

    Scooby2722017 Lucy passed with cf14 School Of Motoring What happened there!

    You told me you were going to change to automatic cars if you didn´t PASS today, so I´m really glad it didnt come to that. Still not sure how you managed to reverse around the corner as you did, but hey a PASS is a PASS even if the examiner did go on for an eternity afterwards.

    Many Congratulations - let me know when you get a car so I can look out for you and give you a wave!

    Take Care, Barry

    Katy

    Scooby2722017 Katy passed with cf14 School Of Motoring After having a dreadful experience with a previous driving instructor, my confidence towards my driving ability was minimal and I would dread the thought of getting into a car for a lesson. From the moment I met Barry he made me feel at ease with my driving. He has the patience of a saint. If you make a mistake he will always remain calm, then give you guidance and advice on how to improve. Barry also uses an iPad to show you clips of your driving which is very useful. Ultimately, Barry is a lovely person and you can always have a laugh with him on your lessons. In my opinion, he is the best driving instructor around! Thank you so much Barry, I couldn´t have passed without you.

    BRILLIANT! Just 2 minors on your first attempt - you must be pleased with that. You´ve been a great student, wonderful personality - All the very best in Uni. Look forward to helping you on Pass Plus when you get a car next year!

    Take Care & Many Congratulations Barry x

    Fran

    Scooby2722017 Fran passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Thanks to Debra´s persistence and on-the-ball teaching, I passed first time. Even after the first lesson as a nervous driver I felt like I had progressed. Debra definitely help put my nerves at ease as she is an incredibly friendly, chatty person with a great sense of humour. Her thorough teaching helped me understand what I was doing wrong, when and how to overcome it in good time. She is able to pin-point what you´re doing wrong and will then go through it with you until you have overcome the mistake which worked great for me. The Audi A1 as a whole is a fantastic car to learn in too!

    Thanks so much Debra for all your support and I won´t forget all the fun memories I have from our lessons as well as what I´ve learnt!

    Rachel

    Scooby2722017 Rachel passed with cf14 School Of Motoring For Anyone looking for a driving instructor, I think Debra Marlow is once of the best people you can have for the job. I have been tutored by this woman for 13 months constantly, and my recent pass at my test is all because of this woman. I just wanted to say that she has excelled in her job and she has done things that you would not expect of a driving instructor to do for a pupil. At the beginning, I was nervous, always saying sorry and just a mess, and now I am a significantly less nervous mess that only says sorry occasionally. Every time I was too nervous to book a lesson, she would always call or text first when she didn´t have to, every time I was unsure or nervous about something, she was there to support me and push me so that I knew I could do it. This amazingly strong and astonishing woman has not only made me pass my test, but she has made me a stronger person at the end of it. I couldn´t ask anyone for a better driving instructor, and also a very dear friend. We have laughed together, cried together and now, after so very long, we have done it together. All I can say is thank you, Debra, you have made an impact on my life that I will never forget. Thank you. X.

    Prachi

    Scooby2722017 Prachi passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Debra was an excellent instructor - she was so kind and patient with me. She taught me everything I needed to know and made sure that was really well prepared for the practical test. I had a great time with her and I didn´t just end up with a pass but also got a great friend. - Prachi.

    What can we say, but a huge congratulations to Prachi for passing her practical driving test yet again with no driving faults with Debra!
    Good luck with your A levels it has been emotional xxxxx

    Giorgia

    Scooby2722017 Giorgia passed with cf14 School Of Motoring A FANTASTIC result in terrible weather conditions - Just 2 minors, and a beaming smile on your face says it all. Truly made up for you. Many Congratulations - Very well deserved, all just in time to return home to Italy this Christmas and tell your mum what you have achieved - all without her knowing!

    Sarah

    Scooby2722017 Sarah passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Have passed my test yesterday with only 1 minor fault, thanks to the best instructor ever!
    It was an absolute pleasure learning with Debra Marlow, she´s been very patient with me and gave me the most useful advice.
    I was expecting to earn a qualification but I wasn´t expecting to earn a true friend x.
    Definitely recommend!

    Congratulations to Sarah on passing your practical driving test with only 1 driving fault and in all that rain a fantastic drive xx

    Wingers

    Scooby2722017 Wingers passed with cf14 School Of Motoring What an Olympic achievement! Star of Rio, ´Wingers´ nails her driving test at the first attempt. Couldn´t be happier for you. Many Congratulations - time to rub your boyfriend up as he took 3 attempts (not with us). Well Done, time to go back to training now - but at least you can drive there without having to ask for lifts!

    Sumayra

    Scooby2722017 Sumayra passed with cf14 School Of Motoring After having bad experiences with driving and instructors finding Barry was the best thing that happened! I managed to finally pass my test all thanks to the most helpful instructor out there! He´d always go out his way to help me and was calm and relaxing to learn with. Thanks Barry for being so patient, friendly and boosting my confidence which all helped me get through this and PASS.

    Firstly Sumayra, Sorry! You have been a terrific student and should have passed sooner (- albeit a green light didnt help before). Today, your worst fears came together. The examiner you didnt want (or like) followed at the beginning of the test with a bay park, the only manoeuvre you really didn´t want. Well after that - what could go wrong?

    Actually nothing! You easily passed today and deserved to do so. I´m so proud of you, you didn´t panic, and even when you were asked to do a second manoeuvre - you calmly reminded the examiner you had already done one, superb!

    Many Congratulations, and one happy Dad can now go car shopping with you. Take Care, Barry x

    Dr. Ganiy Abdulrahman

    Scooby2722017 Dr. Ganiy Abdulrahman passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Barry is good at assessing your level of driving skill and then tailoring lessons specifically to improving your skill, and you will begin to notice the improvement yourself. His constructive criticisms and advice are particularly helpful and he is able to judge when you are ready for a test without tricking you into taking more lessons for the money. I certainly recommend him.

    Another Brilliant Effort Today 07th July 2014 with the ´Doc´ Passing his Practical Driving Test!

    A superb drive today - and heart felt and sincere well done, Ganiy you worked hard and deserved it today! Best Wishes

    Ellie

    Scooby2722017 Ellie passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Well it all was all down to having an amazing teacher! Thank you so much barry!!

    Claudia

    Scooby2722017 Claudia passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Fantastic Instructor, Outstanding training, Highly Recommended and 100% Value for Money !

    Barry truly is the best instructor around, he is friendly, approachable, funny and his teaching methods were the reason I have successfully passed my test !

    Barry tailors his training to the individual. On occasions when I was finding it difficult to learn certain exercises, Barry would take the time to go away and research alternative ways to learn.

    Barry was encouraging and helpful at all times which helped with my confidence to pass !

    Ashley Tyres

    Scooby2722017 Ashley Tyres passed with cf14 School Of Motoring I have read a lot on here about Barry and I can say he is a really nice guy! But most of all a great and understanding teacher! He has helped me a lot and with Barry as a instructor you can´t go wrong!!

    Binoy Thozhukkattu

    Scooby2722017 Binoy Thozhukkattu passed with cf14 School Of Motoring I learnt with cf14 School of Motoring in Cardiff, He is an excellent instructor and I passed in the first practical test, I hugely recommend to everyone as I have with my friends! The fact that I got on so well with my instructor made lessons so much better and easier to understand what he was saying and also the variation of areas we would go to which gave me more experience and confidence on the road within few driving lessons. On top of that he offered me the cheapest price for my lessons so ***** for that too. Thank you Barry.

    Nicola

    Scooby2722017 Nicola passed with cf14 School Of Motoring So so happy!! Passed first time with Barry with only 2 minors, amazing instructor!! Thanks so much:).

    Katie

    Scooby2722017 Katie passed with cf14 School Of Motoring I can´t recommend Barry enough! Such a fantastic instructor - he assesses your ability and tailors lessons accordingly. He pushes you to improve without ever making you feel uncomfortable, and always gives constructive feedback. He has a fantastic teaching style - very thorough, but always funny and reassuring. I knew absolutely nothing about driving, and thanks to Barry´s brilliant teaching, I passed both tests first time! Thank you! :).

    Dan

Even though we only had a handful of lessons his teaching methods are practical and he is excellent at picking up on potential issues and helps you realise where you can improve. My only regret is that I didn´t come to him from the start of my learning as undoubtably he would have got me through it sooner! Thank you very much Barry you are one in a million and I´m going to miss that beautiful A1!!!

    Vineeta

    Scooby2722017 Vineeta passed with cf14 School Of Motoring I can´t thank Barry enough for helping me through with his extremely professional training.

I´ve been putting off driving for years and I finally decided to do it. I couldn´t be happier with my choice to go with Barry and because of him it only took me a couple of months to pass. Now that I´ve passed I will really miss Wednesday chats with Barry :).

    Emma G

    Scooby2722017 Emma G passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Was a fantastic teacher - made me feel safe and comfortable at all times and would recommend him to any driver. I´d previously learnt with a different instructor a few years before, and was reluctant to start again but Barry made me really enjoy the lessons and I´m so relieved now to have my driving licence finally ! Barry made sure I understood everything, and made every step easy. It´s so important to have an instructor you trust - couldn´t recommend him more! Thanks so much Barry !

    Scooby2722017 Ashish passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Definitely would recommend cf14 School Of Motoring - my instructor, Barry was very experienced and took me from my first time behind the wheel to picking up the pass certificate. Calm beyond belief, he is very good at explaining your mistakes and showing you how not to repeat them. Lessons are planned out in advance, ensuring you´ve covered all the bases and then focused on resolving any problem areas before test day. Great value for money and what´s more I really enjoyed it.

    Fern

    Scooby2722017 Fern passed with cf14 School Of Motoring I would recommend Barry as an instructor to any of my friends. He made me feel completely at ease from the first time I met him and made learning to drive an enjoyable experience. Booking lessons online and making any changes to bookings was very easy to do so. Getting in touch with Barry was easy and he was flexible to work with picking me up from school especially. Barry was very supportive throughout my experience and I couldn´t have done it without him!!!

    Hi Fern, Thanks very much for your lovely words. As I told you from the beginning - you have always been a good driver, but with a little help, you now drive better than my wife! I really hope you are now enjoying driving your Dad´s car and wish you every success in your exams. Take Care Barry x

    James

    Scooby2722017 James passed with cf14 School Of Motoring FANTASTIC! I got in touch with Barry having read numerous positive reviews. I´ve had previous instructors where you are often on the road side studying the highway code or are very pushy with regards to lessons and pressure you to book numerous two hour lessons. Barry ensures you drive for the entirety of the lesson and actively encouraged me to cancel some lessons when he believed I was above test standard. Despite being busy (which is a good thing when selecting instructors), Barry easily fitted me into his timetable and ensured I kept driving and did not have long gaps so lesson availability is not an issue which is another positive I found. I would recommend Barry to anybody looking to learn or has had lessons previously like myself. As well as lessons Barry provides free online resources to help pass the theory test. I passed my theory and practical tests first time with Barry, he genuinely cares for his pupils and I strongly doubt there is a better instructor out there.

    Paul 23.04.15

    Scooby2722017 Paul 23.04.15 passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Barry is an excellent instructor and I would recommend him to anybody looking to learn to drive. Thank you for everything

    Charis

    Scooby2722017 Charis passed with cf14 School Of Motoring It´s true what they say - a great driving instructor makes all the difference! I´d had lessons with a different instructor a few years before, and was anxious to start up again - however lessons with Barry were a true pleasure. He is a patient instructor and gives you so much confidence in your driving skill - I have never felt so prepared for a test! His instructions were straight-forward and comprehensible, and I now feel like a fully capable driver. Thank you for everything!

    Zain

    Scooby2722017 Zain passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Passed my driving test first time and I cannot thank Barry enough. He is very good at explaining your mistakes and shows you how to improve upon them. Booking lessons online and making any alterations was very easy to do so. He is able to judge when you are ready for a test without making you take more lessons for the money. I would recommend Barry as an instructor to any of my family/friends and I couldn´t have done it without him!!

    You have an exceptional skill, now you´ve passed your test - concentrate on your exams. It´s been a pleasure getting to know you, many congratulations again - remember if I can help in the future just ask.

    Kind Regards,

    Barry

    Ffion

    Scooby2722017 Ffion passed with cf14 School Of Motoring I could not have asked for a better instructor!! From not wanting to learn to drive, to getting excited for driving lessons, I think it´s fair to say I have thoroughly enjoyed learning! Barry makes learning fun and gives great feed back, always making you feel good even if you do make a silly mistake. I would recommended CF14 SOM to all my friends and some have already started using his services. Thank you very much! :).

    Lisa

    Scooby2722017 Lisa passed with cf14 School Of Motoring After abortive attempts when I was younger I really had The Fear when I decided to try to learn to drive again. I´m normally a confident person but the idea of driving struck me with nerves and anxiety. My dad had just passed away and I really wanted to confront this fear and had invested a lot emotionally in passing. Barry was brilliant. He reassured me and stuck with me even when I had no self belief. I really thought I was going to be a lost cause and had left it too late and that there was too much of a mental barrier there (not to mention terrible memory!) but Barry had no doubt and all patience. Thank you so much! Hugely recommend.

    Thanks Lisa - I know how much you wanted this, so I´m really pleased, not to say proud of how well you´ve done. Enjoy your car & freedom from public transport, and remember I´m a call away if you need help in the future, Take Care Barry x

    Cindy

    Scooby2722017 Cindy passed with cf14 School Of Motoring To the people who are interested in finding a driving instructor.
    I would highly recommend Barry from cf14 SOM. After failing twice previously, I was desperate to look for another instructor. I only found out about Barry through internet research and reading through the reviews here. I saw excellent reviews about Barry and decided to ask him for help.
    As a result, Barry didn´t disappoint me. I would say that he is an amazing (or in fact the Best) instructor! Barry has a lovely personality and is responsible, hardworking, honest, punctual and empathetic. He listens/pays attention to your problems and works closely with you to fix the problem enthusiastically. He is also extremely patient and friendly when it comes to correcting silly mistakes. He is always willing to help and also puts in his very best effort to make sure that you are a safe driver and would pass your test. He is also very organised and would work with you to produce a plan according to what´s best for you to pass your test. Last but not least, I felt that I had received an enormous amount of support on this stressful journey. :).

    Barry Barry!!!! Thank you so much for helping me pass my driving test! you´ve done a fabulous job! Like I said, you have all the good qualities of a star instructor! Thanks for working with me, especially when we have to shift things around because of the change in my work timetable that is beyond my control :P. Thanks for sharing the stress and joy of passing the test with me as well! Hope that you are well and see you soon! Take care :).

    Sara

    Scooby2722017 Sara passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Fantastic instructor! Really enjoyed learning to drive with Barry! One thing I struggled with was believing in my own driving ability, but Barry helped me overcome this and gave me a lot of confidence! I couldn´t of asked for a nicer instructor. Thank you very much, I appreciate all of your time and hard work!

    Matt

    Scooby2722017 Matt passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Barry is an excellent driving instructor. He is patient and very motivating. Strongly recommend him!

    Molly

    Scooby2722017 Molly passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Wouldn´t have been able to pass without Barry´s help! He´s an excellent instructor and really easy to get along with. I felt comfortable and safe and really enjoyed my lessons with Barry. He was very patient and took the time to explain anything I was´t sure about. I definitely recommend CF14 SOM to anyone looking for driving lessons.
    Thank you so much Barry! :).

    Geoff

    Scooby2722017 Geoff passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Having left it to the age of 44 to learn to drive Barry had his work cut out with me. However from day one his patience and the confidence he instilled were brilliant. Thanks mate.

    Thanks Geoff - it´s never too late to learn! Enjoy that drive to Macro when stocking up & think of me!

    Hardik

    Scooby2722017 Hardik passed with cf14 School Of Motoring I am very satisfied by the services and help Barry Thomas from CF14 School of Motoring had provided. I highly recommend anyone who want to learn driving and pass their practical test confidently without any retakes to take lessons from CF14 School of Motoring.

    CF14 school of motoring gives value for money with excellent service and quality.

    Barry Thomas helped me immensely to clear my practical test in first attempt. Thanks mate.

    Shahin

    Scooby2722017 Shahin passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Would truly like to thank you Barry for helping me pass 5 months ago. Totally love driving now and its the best thing that ever happened. Thanks again.

    Phil

    Scooby2722017 Phil passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Barry is simply a fantastic instructor and a genuinely great guy. I had previously failed my test a couple of years back and only recently decided to try and give it another go, this time with Barry. After a few weeks of lessons the result was that I passed without any minors whatsoever and I now feel incredibly confident behind the wheel. To be honest I have no doubt that if I had had him from the beginning I would have passed first time. In short, Barry is a true professional and I can´t recommend him enough.

    Zena

    Scooby2722017 Zena passed with cf14 School Of Motoring (First Time With cf14 School Of Motoring)

    Liz

    Scooby2722017 Liz passed with cf14 School Of Motoring I passed first time, driving with cf14. Barry is one very patient and one genuine instructor I have met. I will recommend cf14 to anyone ready to pass your driving. Thank you Barry :-).

    Becki

    Scooby2722017 Becki passed with cf14 School Of Motoring You read reviews an think some must be staged but generally you will not find a better instructor, Barry is patient, understanding an will go through everything in detail an make sure you as a individual feel confident in yourself, I was actually looking at the big name companies to start with…. I was lucky they were full or I would never have found Barry, you will not regret!! Thanks Barry for everything, I will miss our laughs together.. Remember…"why put yourself under pressure" …I´ll remember forever!! Hehehe.

    Andrew

    Scooby2722017 Andrew passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Thanks to Barry I was able to pass first time with only one minor! Only wish I´d done this sooner! Would recommend to anyone wanting to learn to drive, everything is broken down into simple, easy to remember systems that are perfect for getting you through the test.
    Cheers Barry!

    Hannah

    Scooby2722017 Hannah passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Gave me the confidence I needed to get me through my test after not so good experiences with previous instructors! Always up for a laugh, always had very chilled out and enjoyable driving lessons.

    Kolie

    Scooby2722017 Kolie passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Thank you so much! I´ve had a few instructors over the years and was convinced I´d never pass. Barry is has been by far the best instructor I´ve had and I always recommend him. Barry´s honesty was appreciated. Thanks again Barry- though I will miss my counselling sessions.

    Faria

    Scooby2722017 Faria passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Barry is extremely prepared, organised and just amazing at what he does!! I only had a couple of lessons with him and I adjusted into the car and the way he taught the manoeuvres so well. If it wasn´t for him and his patience and belief in my driving I would not have passed today!!

    Thanks Faria - You just needed a bit of confidence, you did all the hard work, I just pointed out how good you were. Well Done, great day for you! Take Care Barry

    Allie

    Scooby2722017 Allie passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Best driving school and Barry is fantastic ,he makes you feel at ease and boosts your confidence,highly recommended, THANKS Barry,could never have passed without your confidence in me.

    Faria

    Scooby2722017 Faria passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Barry is extremely prepared, organised and just amazing at what he does!! I only had a couple of lessons with him and I adjusted into the car and the way he taught the manoeuvres so well. If it wasn´t for him and his patience and belief in my driving I would not have passed today!!

    Byron

    Scooby2722017 Byron passed with cf14 School Of Motoring A truly amazing instructor!!

    I had a really bad experience with another instructor years ago which lead to me not completing my driving test, but with Barry and his exceptional teaching and calm approach, it really pulled me back into the driving seat to pass my test the first time.

    After every lesson I grew in confidence and became more and more relaxed with driving again and ready for the next lesson.
    Thank you Barry for your amazing teaching, guidance and support.

    100% recommended!!

    Anna

    Scooby2722017 Anna passed with cf14 School Of Motoring I cannot thank Barry enough.

    Not only is he a wonderful teacher but he is also a lovely guy. I found him to be incredably patient and encourgaging, he was willing to go out of his way with lessons and tests to help me.
    I would recommend him to anyone, I was very nervous and unsure and I have now past, something I never thought possible.
    Also it is very easy to book, his website makes everything very simple.
    Additionally he seems to work better hours than a lot of driving instructors, meaning is you are working or studying full time you will still be able to get plenty of lessons in.
    Finally Barry´s car is so easy to drive, it is like a second instructor. In sum, the only negative is that once you pass you don´t get to hang out with Barry once a week and inevitably have to swap his lovely car for your own old banger. :).

    Bubakar

    Scooby2722017 Bubakar passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Thanks again barry ! You are brilliant instructor Can´t thank u enough for helping me with patient and professional manners once again thank so much to make that happened.

    Anishka

    Scooby2722017 Anishka passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Fantastic teacher! Really calm and patient! Definitely increased my confidence as a driver! Very lucky to have such a kind and supportive instructor like Barry! :).

    Thanks for your lovely words - but it´s you who did all the work, fantastic day for you - WELL DONE!

    Rachel

    Scooby2722017 Rachel passed with cf14 School Of Motoring What a driving instructor! Put up with my confusion over left and rights and gave me the confidence to pass my test first time. Learning to drive in his car was a delight, a lot smoother than my old run around but definitely helped in my passing. Highly recommend! Thank you again so much for all your support and help during our two months of lessons! Could not have done it without you.

    Carmel

    Scooby2722017 Carmel passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Barry was brilliant! I had lessons years ago and finally decided it was about time I learned and passed. After a terrible start with another instructor knocked my confidence in my ability I contacted Barry. He was quick to reply and his online booking system meant I was booked in the same day. Barry was proactive, helpful and believed in me enough to book the test- and it paid off! His friendly helpful manner soon had my confidence up and he made sure I was ready.
    The lessons were great and the option for reflection and feedback after was great too. You can tell Barry loves what he does and is dedicated to giving his pupils the best experience and a skill for life.
    I passed first time with just 2 minors on the Emergency stop- a manoeuvre I hadn´t practiced in a long while, so I´m very pleased and trust myself to be a good, safe driver thanks to Barry.

    Gemma

    Scooby2722017 Gemma passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Barry has been an incredible instructor, patient, kind and an incredibly clear and calm instructor. I came back to driving after losing confidence and found it difficult to find someone who could teach me to drive in a way that suited me, that was until I met Barry. I can not fully explain the impact his approach has had but he is unique, flexible and persistent, constantly encouraging and all round a lvoely guy!

    Jef

    Scooby2722017 Jef passed with cf14 School Of Motoring It was a joy and delight to have my weekly lesson with Barry. The lessons were always well thought out where we considered my weak points and work on them. His patience and encouragement gave me the confidence to pass the test first time and now onwards to driving independently on the streets! I shall miss our Saturday lessons together!

    Sophie

    Scooby2722017 Sophie passed with cf14 School Of Motoring I couldn´t have asked for a better driving instructor- Barry was excellent. I previously learnt with an instructor back home but stopped as I wasn´t getting on that well, but I only had a handful of lessons with Barry before I was ready to take my test- and I passed first time with two minors. He is very patient and adapts his style of teaching to your personal needs and personality. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing lessons. Thanks Barry!

    Andrew

    Scooby2722017 Andrew passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Would highly recommend Barry. Very honest, helpful and supportive. Brilliant service and a very likeable person. Thanks for getting my through my test!

    Couldn´t have done it without your patience and sense of humour! Looking forward to completing pass plus!

    Scooby2722017 Alana passed with cf14 School Of Motoring I am very happy I chose Barry as my instructor, he was fantastic! He went out of his way to make sure I had all the information I needed and worked with me to get in all the lessons I needed before my test. He was extremely helpful in working to find me a better test date after the original one was cancelled. He was very nice, encouraging, and patient and kept me aware of everything I needed to know. Because of him, I passed on the first attempt! I will definitely recommend him to everyone 100 times over!

    Thanks Alana, I know how busy you are so really appreciate your time to write this lovely review for me. Hope the new job is going well -Take Care Barry

He is always encouraging and extremely patient even with repetitive mistakes! I will definitely recommend him to others and my younger sisters are already waiting in the wings to learn with him. Thanks Barry!

    Your Response : Thanks Amaani - It was a real pleasure seeing you transform from complete beginner to PASSING first time. I wont however miss you putting on the windscreen wipers instead of the indicators! Simple mistake and very confusing for you as your Grandad´s car had them on the opposite sides.

    Many Congratulations again, and well done, FULLY DESERVED!

    Khalid

    Your Response : Thanks Luke, Just 12 hours of tuition and your 2 hours today, no wonder you are so happy!

    Ellen

    Scooby2722017 Ellen passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Thoroughly enjoyable lessons - Barry is always very patient and covers what the student wants to do to feel comfortable on the road, rather than just to pass the test. I would definitely recommend to anyone learning to drive in the area!

    Kirsty

    Scooby2722017 Kirsty passed with cf14 School Of Motoring After moving from Liverpool to Cardiff two weeks ago for a new job, I was in a rush to find a new instructor. I had rebooked my test after failing it the first time in Liverpool, and turned to Barry after reading all the positive reviews online. I couldn’t have asked for a better driving instructor! Barry is calm and patient and I was never afraid to ask questions, we also had a laugh along the way too :-) The lessons are completely worth the money and not to mention the smooth drive in the Audi, which I will definitely miss. Thank you so much Barry for helping me become a confident driver - I passed today with just 1 minor!

    Thanks Kirsty for you kind words. After your first lesson with me I was ´slightly´ worried, but after that there was no looking back. Great driver -very best of luck for the future! x

    Grant

    Scooby2722017 Grant passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Really enjoyed learning to drive with Barry, flexible lessons and we worked at the pace that suited me, he doesn´t just teach me how to drive, but how to be a safe driver.

    Jess

    Scooby2722017 Jess passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Barry is an amazing instructor, he´s friendly, funny and a fantastic man. Had an amazing time in every lesson and if I ever had a question he was able to answer. I have dyslexic and found Barry to be understanding and patient. I´ll miss our weekly lessons.

    Murat

    Scooby2722017 Murat passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Barry is an exceptionally honest and competent driving instructor. He has a genuine interest in making his students not only pass but also become safe drivers. So happy with the money and time I spent on my driving lessons with him.

    JESS

    Scooby2722017 JESS passed with cf14 School Of Motoring I would definitely recommend Barry as a driving instructor. He’s an incredibly calm, patient and encouraging teacher, who also put up with all my swearing with good grace whenever I made a mistake. His timings were flexible and the lessons geared to suit what I needed to work on. He’s taught me to drive safely and responsibly. I’m so pleased to have passed my test! I’ve always been really nervous about learning to drive so thank you for help get across the finish line :).

    Fatima

    Scooby2722017 Fatima passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Passed first time!
    Barry is an incredible driving instructor, he is calm, patient and a relaxing person to have in the car while learning. He is flexible and works around your timing and needs and would recommend Barry to anyone. It was always funny to go out and drive with him as he made it interesting everytime. He taught me how to drive safe and responsibly and I am so glad I passed my test the first time.

    Bob

    Scooby2722017 Bob passed with cf14 School Of Motoring An excellent instructor. Barry has a great attitude that helps you to learn, and with his capable tuition I was able to pass first time. Extra credit for having a superb learner´s car and for intelligent use of technology - it´s very useful to be able to watch the footage of your drive and work out what you could improve. Also very punctual and friendly. A*.

    Fran

    Scooby2722017 Fran passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Thanks to Debra´s persistence and on-the-ball teaching, I passed first time. Even after the first lesson as a nervous driver I felt like I had progressed. Debra definitely help put my nerves at ease as she is an incredibly friendly, chatty person with a great sense of humour. Her thorough teaching helped me understand what I was doing wrong, when and how to overcome it in good time. She is able to pin-point what you´re doing wrong and will then go through it with you until you have overcome the mistake which worked great for me. The Audi A1 as a whole is a fantastic car to learn in too!

    Thanks so much Debra for all your support and I won´t forget all the fun memories I have from our lessons as well as what I´ve learnt!

    Rachel

    Scooby2722017 Rachel passed with cf14 School Of Motoring For Anyone looking for a driving instructor, I think Debra Marlow is once of the best people you can have for the job. I have been tutored by this woman for 13 months constantly, and my recent pass at my test is all because of this woman. I just wanted to say that she has excelled in her job and she has done things that you would not expect of a driving instructor to do for a pupil. At the beginning, I was nervous, always saying sorry and just a mess, and now I am a significantly less nervous mess that only says sorry occasionally. Every time I was too nervous to book a lesson, she would always call or text first when she didn´t have to, every time I was unsure or nervous about something, she was there to support me and push me so that I knew I could do it. This amazingly strong and astonishing woman has not only made me pass my test, but she has made me a stronger person at the end of it. I couldn´t ask anyone for a better driving instructor, and also a very dear friend. We have laughed together, cried together and now, after so very long, we have done it together. All I can say is thank you, Debra, you have made an impact on my life that I will never forget. Thank you. X.

    Lily-Beth

    Scooby2722017 Lily-Beth passed with cf14 School Of Motoring What a Day!

    When 2 examiners came into the reception area, and one was somebody you wanted to avoid, your face was a picture! Thankfully - you aced the test route, including the Dual Carrageway with just 2 minors - what a relief. Couldn´t be happier for you - drive safely and take care x

    Martin

    Scooby2722017 Martin passed with cf14 School Of Motoring I rang Barry Thomas school of motoring after trying many other driving school of motoring company´s in and around Cardiff who were not really interested in arranging lessons due to the short notice given as I had already booked my test and never had any lessons previously. Many company´s failed to return my call.

    Barry Thomas returned my calls straight away arranged driving lessons at short notice and was very professional and understanding, the driving instructor Debra was excellent and with her professionalism and patience I am pleased to say I have now passed my test.

    Scooby2722017 Zhi 31/12/2016 passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Look no further. Getting booked with CF14 SOM/ Barry was the best decision I´ve made for myself this year. He was truly a motivated, knowledgable, student-centred and supportive instructor- which is just what every learner need. 1000/10. He was 100% on board with me the whole time and I could feel that he wanted me to get that PASS certificate as much as I wanted it. (Not many will put so much effort, really!) His hard work is indisputable and he is very encouraging while pushing you to learn everything and prepare you for the test. With him you will never worry about being intimidated/ feeling useless. Every lesson has been enjoyable and besides passing I have gained a lot of confidence in driving.

    Thank you so much Barry!! I´m so thankful for all your effort in making sure I get that pass certificate today. 💯You´ve worked so hard with me over the Christmas period as you knew I really needed this and I´m grateful for it. Sorry for making you worried but I´m so glad that I didn´t disappoint you today at the very least! 😊 I hope you have a great new year ahead with many great blessings with your family & friends. 🎉😄

    Well Done Zhi!
    I just reviewed your test route - wow that was hard! It´s a new route and that is difficult to say the least so very well done. So pleased you passed and can now concentrate on your studies.. BRILLIANT!

    #Best Day Of My Life!

    Carwen 31/12/2016

    Scooby2722017 Carwen 31/12/2016 passed with cf14 School Of Motoring WHAT A FEELING! You can return to Uni knowing your test is under your belt, and can relax.. well perhaps not, you now need to PASS your degree, so dont stop working hard, but if you put as much effort into those as you did your driving, it will be a breeze.

    Many Congratulations, Have a great New Year & Remember To Drive Safely!

    James 06/01/2017

    Scooby2722017 James 06/01/2017 passed with cf14 School Of Motoring The gold standard in driving instructing. I can´t speak highly enough of my experience with Barry. One of the best teachers of anything I´ve had and as professional a service as can be found anywhere. I also had a few fantastic lessons with Debra too whom I can also recommend highly. My brother and I both passed first time in a relatively short amount of time, had an enjoyable time doing so and even learnt what a fantastic small business looks like whilst at it! I would happily wager this to be the best driving school in Cardiff.

    Happy New Year James!

    Many Congratulations, you worked really hard and deserved to PASS, have a think, but if you are getting tired carrying that backpack over the mountain next week (as fun!!) You can always change your mind and drive! Well Done Barry & Debra

    Naseha 15/05/2017

    Scooby2722017 Naseha 15/05/2017 passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Amazing, easy to get along with and instructers that make you feel comfortable! So pleased, and couldnt ask for anything more! However, is very expensive so save before hand!

    Thanks for your review, I understand you think it´s expensive, but you also had a FREE first lesson, the quality and expertise helped you PASS first time, our prices start from just £20 per hour (Pre-Paid)which is the cheapest in the City! If you remember the DVSA cancelled your test with less than 24hrs notice, but we are helping you claim compensation back from them, we also worked really hard to find you a cancellation, no other driving schools offer this service - we found a cancellation letting you take your test just a few days later rather than the 3 MONTHS the DVSA had put your date back to. That said you are entitled to your opinion, but out of over 125 reviews to date, this is the lowest we have ever scored, so I thought I needed to make an appropriate reply when others read it. Enjoy your licence, remember you qualify for discounted Pass Plus lessons with us for the next 4 weeks, take Care & Safe Driving Barry

    Scooby2722017 Bee passed with cf14 School Of Motoring My lessons with Debra were a lot of fun. As a first time learner I had zero experience driving, but Debra put me at ease straight away. She explained everything very clearly, and has little tips and tricks to make your reverse manoeuvres a breeze! She is very strict though, and she will expect the best from you, but it will ultimately work in your favour when you go for your test! I definitely have her to thank for my first time pass with zero driving faults! She is also a fun person to be in a car with, as I definitely had a laugh with her on more than one occasion!

    Scooby2722017 Rhian 22/08/17 passed with cf14 School Of Motoring After learning with a different instructor and struggling with my manoeuvres, I couldn´t believe how easy I would find them with Barry and Debra.

    Thanks Rhian, but to be honest we didn´t do anything, you could easily drive before you met us, we just carried you across the line, FANTASTIC student, and well deserved pass. Good luck for the future, hope the licence helps! Barry x

    Scooby2722017 Evie 24/08/17 passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Hadn´t driven for 2 years after previously failing my test and then going to university, so was very nervous to start again. However, Barry was so friendly, calm and helpful that after just a few weeks I passed my test. Easy to organise lessons, helpful videos and theory test information provided. After going with a few different schools previously, CF14 school of motoring is definitely the best!

    Fantastic Evie, Many Congratulations, what a BONUS to go back to UNI with a FULL driving Licence, brilliant student, but lets be honest you could drive before you started with us, we just helped you across the finish line. Well Done again, good luck in Uni.Take Care Barry x

    Sean 14/09/17

    Scooby2722017 Sean 14/09/17 passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Having just passed my test first time, I cannot recommend CF14 School Of Motoring highly enough. I initially found learning to drive quite daunting but Barry´s patient, supportive instruction and lessons catered to my individual needs gave me the confidence to progress from a nervous novice to passing first time. Booking lessons on the website at a time to suit me took all the stress out of fitting learning to drive around work and other committments. My lessons with Barry gave me the skills and knowledge to not only pass the test itself but to be a safe, confident driver going forward. If you´re thinking of learning to drive, don´t look elsewhere.

    Fantastic, Many Congratulations Sean - New Job to look forward to, New Licence, who knows - perhaps even a new house next year, Really well done, drive safely

    Andrea 22.09.17

    Scooby2722017 Andrea 22.09.17 passed with cf14 School Of Motoring Barry was so helpful in arranging an intense block of lesions for my daughter Andrea during the Summer holidays. He spent time discussing our needs, (very limited timescale before moving to London) and came up with a very focused plan. Once lessons began he was an excellent teacher who made the whole experience fun and enjoyable On the day of the test itself due to sickness the test was canceled however Barry insisted that Andrea be fitted in at the end of the day explaining she had come back from London to sit the test.
    Highly recommend CF14 and Barry.
    Excellent customer service, seldom found in companies nowadays.
    Thanks again.

    Absolutely amazing service barry was the best driving instructed I could have asked for, brilliant ways of learning and always wants the best for you.

    Barry truly is the best instructor around, he is friendly, approachable, funny and his teaching methods were the reason I have successfully passed my test !

    Barry tailors his training to the individual. On occasions when I was finding it difficult to learn certain exercises, Barry would take the time to go away and research alternative ways to learn.

    Barry was encouraging and helpful at all times which helped with my confidence to pass !

    Fatima

    Passed first time!
    Barry is an incredible driving instructor, he is calm, patient and a relaxing person to have in the car while learning. He is flexible and works around your timing and needs and would recommend Barry to anyone. It was always funny to go out and drive with him as he made it interesting everytime. He taught me how to drive safe and responsibly and I am so glad I passed my test the first time.

    Just passed my test today and super happy with how Barry helped me to pass the test. I have been through few instructors before I found Barry, and I can tell that not only he is a very good instructor he is also honest and genuinely wants to help you pass your test. Thank you so much for helping me cross this milestone of my life…

    Gemma

    Barry has been an incredible instructor, patient, kind and an incredibly clear and calm instructor. I came back to driving after losing confidence and found it difficult to find someone who could teach me to drive in a way that suited me, that was until I met Barry. I can not fully explain the impact his approach has had but he is unique, flexible and persistent, constantly encouraging and all round a lvoely guy!

    Liz

    I passed first time, driving with cf14. Barry is one very patient and one genuine instructor I have met. I will recommend cf14 to anyone ready to pass your driving. Thank you Barry :-).

    Hi Liz, thanks for the review. I hope your family have many great days out driving together now. Take Care and thanks again, Barry!

    Ellie

    Well it all was all down to having an amazing teacher! Thank you so much barry!!

    If you want to pass your driving test use CF14 school of motoring. What a lovely man and an incredible teacher. Very knowledgable instructor, with a great attitude. An extremely helpful and patient man, who instilled every confidence in me. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will miss having driving lessons greatly. Can´t thank CF14 school of motoring enough.

    Matt

    Barry is an excellent driving instructor. He is patient and very motivating. Strongly recommend him!

    Tanisha

    Passed my Test today Big massive thanks to Barry he´s the best driver instructor in Cardiff. Highly recommend him to anyone who want´s to start to learn to drive, he´s the one you´re looking for. He´s very honest and clear. The best thing about Barry was he made me enjoy driving under his tuition and that made me feel so confident and safe.

    Thanks Tanisha - but honestly the hard work was down to you. Well Done, drive safely and look after that young family of yours x

    Rachel HOWELL

    Thanks Barry! I am so pleased to have passed first time and to have done it in just over a month. Barry is a brilliant instructor, very patient, easy to understand and extremely easy to get along with. I am very grateful for all his help in teaching me to become a safe and confident driver. I would recommend him to anyone! Thanks again :).

    Becki

    You read reviews an think some must be staged but generally you will not find a better instructor, Barry is patient, understanding an will go through everything in detail an make sure you as a individual feel confident in yourself, I was actually looking at the big name companies to start with…. I was lucky they were full or I would never have found Barry, you will not regret!! Thanks Barry for everything, I will miss our laughs together.. Remember…"why put yourself under pressure" …I´ll remember forever!! Hehehe.

    Faria

    Barry is extremely prepared, organised and just amazing at what he does!! I only had a couple of lessons with him and I adjusted into the car and the way he taught the manoeuvres so well. If it wasn´t for him and his patience and belief in my driving I would not have passed today!!

    Fran

    Thanks to Debra´s persistence and on-the-ball teaching, I passed first time. Even after the first lesson as a nervous driver I felt like I had progressed. Debra definitely help put my nerves at ease as she is an incredibly friendly, chatty person with a great sense of humour. Her thorough teaching helped me understand what I was doing wrong, when and how to overcome it in good time. She is able to pin-point what you´re doing wrong and will then go through it with you until you have overcome the mistake which worked great for me. The Audi A1 as a whole is a fantastic car to learn in too!

    Thanks so much Debra for all your support and I won´t forget all the fun memories I have from our lessons as well as what I´ve learnt!

    Anna

    I cannot thank Barry enough.

    Not only is he a wonderful teacher but he is also a lovely guy. I found him to be incredably patient and encourgaging, he was willing to go out of his way with lessons and tests to help me.
    I would recommend him to anyone, I was very nervous and unsure and I have now past, something I never thought possible.
    Also it is very easy to book, his website makes everything very simple.
    Additionally he seems to work better hours than a lot of driving instructors, meaning is you are working or studying full time you will still be able to get plenty of lessons in.
    Finally Barry´s car is so easy to drive, it is like a second instructor. In sum, the only negative is that once you pass you don´t get to hang out with Barry once a week and inevitably have to swap his lovely car for your own old banger. :).

    Murat

    Barry is an exceptionally honest and competent driving instructor. He has a genuine interest in making his students not only pass but also become safe drivers. So happy with the money and time I spent on my driving lessons with him.

    Jason

    Big thank you to Barry CF14 School of Motoring.... i passed my driving with barry patience and massive experience of teached me to drive ... AMAZING INSTRUCTOR....

    Zain

    Passed my driving test first time and I cannot thank Barry enough. He is very good at explaining your mistakes and shows you how to improve upon them. Booking lessons online and making any alterations was very easy to do so. He is able to judge when you are ready for a test without making you take more lessons for the money. I would recommend Barry as an instructor to any of my family/friends and I couldn´t have done it without him!!

    You have an exceptional skill, now you´ve passed your test - concentrate on your exams. It´s been a pleasure getting to know you, many congratulations again - remember if I can help in the future just ask.

    Kind Regards,

    Barry

    Molly

    Wouldn´t have been able to pass without Barry´s help! He´s an excellent instructor and really easy to get along with. I felt comfortable and safe and really enjoyed my lessons with Barry. He was very patient and took the time to explain anything I was´t sure about. I definitely recommend CF14 SOM to anyone looking for driving lessons.
    Thank you so much Barry! :).

    Cindy

    To the people who are interested in finding a driving instructor.
    I would highly recommend Barry from cf14 SOM. After failing twice previously, I was desperate to look for another instructor. I only found out about Barry through internet research and reading through the reviews here. I saw excellent reviews about Barry and decided to ask him for help.
    As a result, Barry didn´t disappoint me. I would say that he is an amazing (or in fact the Best) instructor! Barry has a lovely personality and is responsible, hardworking, honest, punctual and empathetic. He listens/pays attention to your problems and works closely with you to fix the problem enthusiastically. He is also extremely patient and friendly when it comes to correcting silly mistakes. He is always willing to help and also puts in his very best effort to make sure that you are a safe driver and would pass your test. He is also very organised and would work with you to produce a plan according to what´s best for you to pass your test. Last but not least, I felt that I had received an enormous amount of support on this stressful journey. :).

    Barry Barry!!!! Thank you so much for helping me pass my driving test! you´ve done a fabulous job! Like I said, you have all the good qualities of a star instructor! Thanks for working with me, especially when we have to shift things around because of the change in my work timetable that is beyond my control :P. Thanks for sharing the stress and joy of passing the test with me as well! Hope that you are well and see you soon! Take care :).

    Tahira

    Barry is a great teacher. He explained things in a really nice, calm and encouraging manner. Thank you so much Barry. Simply superb!

    Ashish

    Definitely would recommend cf14 School Of Motoring - my instructor, Barry was very experienced and took me from my first time behind the wheel to picking up the pass certificate. Calm beyond belief, he is very good at explaining your mistakes and showing you how not to repeat them. Lessons are planned out in advance, ensuring you´ve covered all the bases and then focused on resolving any problem areas before test day. Great value for money and what´s more I really enjoyed it.

    Kirsty

    After moving from Liverpool to Cardiff two weeks ago for a new job, I was in a rush to find a new instructor. I had rebooked my test after failing it the first time in Liverpool, and turned to Barry after reading all the positive reviews online. I couldn’t have asked for a better driving instructor! Barry is calm and patient and I was never afraid to ask questions, we also had a laugh along the way too :-) The lessons are completely worth the money and not to mention the smooth drive in the Audi, which I will definitely miss. Thank you so much Barry for helping me become a confident driver - I passed today with just 1 minor!

    Thanks Kirsty for you kind words. After your first lesson with me I was ´slightly´ worried, but after that there was no looking back. Great driver -very best of luck for the future! x

    Byron

    A truly amazing instructor!!

    I had a really bad experience with another instructor years ago which lead to me not completing my driving test, but with Barry and his exceptional teaching and calm approach, it really pulled me back into the driving seat to pass my test the first time.

    After every lesson I grew in confidence and became more and more relaxed with driving again and ready for the next lesson.
    Thank you Barry for your amazing teaching, guidance and support.

    100% recommended!!

    Ellen

    Thoroughly enjoyable lessons - Barry is always very patient and covers what the student wants to do to feel comfortable on the road, rather than just to pass the test. I would definitely recommend to anyone learning to drive in the area!

    Nicola

    So so happy!! Passed first time with Barry with only 2 minors, amazing instructor!! Thanks so much:).

    Nicola took the time to travel every week from ´Barry´ to Cardiff to take lessons with cf14 School Of Motoring. Well all that effort paid off today Fabulous effort, great student, Well Done!

    Paul 23.04.15

    Barry is an excellent instructor and I would recommend him to anybody looking to learn to drive. Thank you for everything

    Katie

    I can´t recommend Barry enough! Such a fantastic instructor - he assesses your ability and tailors lessons accordingly. He pushes you to improve without ever making you feel uncomfortable, and always gives constructive feedback. He has a fantastic teaching style - very thorough, but always funny and reassuring. I knew absolutely nothing about driving, and thanks to Barry´s brilliant teaching, I passed both tests first time! Thank you! :).

    Zena

    (First Time With cf14 School Of Motoring)

    I would highly recommend CF14 School Of Motoring. Barry is a great driving instructor, he explained things well and was always friendly and helped me to gain back confidence in my driving ability. Thank you Barry!

    Rayhan

    Great teacher, good quality of teaching will definitely help you pass.

    Hi Rayhan,

    AMAZING, just 2 months and only 14.50hrs of driving from novice to test, PASSING first time with just ONE Minor - BRILLIANT!

    Fab student, really PLEASED for you – now go PASS all your exams. WELL DONE!

    Faheeza ZAMAN

    I passed my driving test first time and couldn´t be any happier about it. I had amazing support from the start and during the progress throughout the months. Lessons were priced fantastically - great value for your money. Thank you so much Barry for helping me achieve my full driver´s license :).

    Vineeta

    I can´t thank Barry enough for helping me through with his extremely professional training. He is a magic person and is best teacher around. Dont miss the opportunity of passing your test first time. Call him now guys…I wish you all the best in all your endeavours.

    Luke

    I couldn´t be happier!! Passed first time and I can only thank Barry for being such an amazing instructor, Picked up on my weak points straight away and helped me through them! Would advise Barry to anyone who is thinking about driving hes truly the best!!

    Your Response : Thanks Luke, Just 12 hours of tuition and your 2 hours today, no wonder you are so happy!
    Thanks for the review - hopefully this will help with your job, Drive Safely

    Charis

    It´s true what they say - a great driving instructor makes all the difference! I´d had lessons with a different instructor a few years before, and was anxious to start up again - however lessons with Barry were a true pleasure. He is a patient instructor and gives you so much confidence in your driving skill - I have never felt so prepared for a test! His instructions were straight-forward and comprehensible, and I now feel like a fully capable driver. Thank you for everything!

    Jade

    Big CONGRATULATIONS to JADE; you’ve proved yourself to be a really good and safe driver – and tested by one of the senior examining officers today 14th July!

    ***** WELL DONE *****

    Becky

    Thanks Barry!! I´m so chuffed! Thank u for all your patience xx

    Amaani

    I really enjoyed my driving lessons with Barry. He made me feel relaxed and confident. He is always encouraging and extremely patient even with repetitive mistakes! I will definitely recommend him to others and my younger sisters are already waiting in the wings to learn with him. Thanks Barry!

    Your Response : Thanks Amaani - It was a real pleasure seeing you transform from complete beginner to PASSING first time. I wont however miss you putting on the windscreen wipers instead of the indicators! Simple mistake and very confusing for you as your Grandad´s car had them on the opposite sides.

    Many Congratulations again, and well done, FULLY DESERVED!

    Lila

    Today I passed my driving test first time and I could not have done that without Barry´s brilliant and patient teaching. I´ve been putting off driving for years and I finally decided to do it. I couldn´t be happier with my choice to go with Barry and because of him it only took me a couple of months to pass. Now that I´ve passed I will really miss Wednesday chats with Barry :).

    Chloe

    Barry is a pleasure to have been taught by. Overall an impeccable learning experience with a very positive outcome. His teaching style made me feel very at ease and I would highly recommend all my friends to learn to drive with him. Thank you Barry.

    Grant

    Really enjoyed learning to drive with Barry, flexible lessons and we worked at the pace that suited me, he doesn´t just teach me how to drive, but how to be a safe driver.

    Carmel

    Barry was brilliant! I had lessons years ago and finally decided it was about time I learned and passed. After a terrible start with another instructor knocked my confidence in my ability I contacted Barry. He was quick to reply and his online booking system meant I was booked in the same day. Barry was proactive, helpful and believed in me enough to book the test- and it paid off! His friendly helpful manner soon had my confidence up and he made sure I was ready.
    The lessons were great and the option for reflection and feedback after was great too. You can tell Barry loves what he does and is dedicated to giving his pupils the best experience and a skill for life.
    I passed first time with just 2 minors on the Emergency stop- a manoeuvre I hadn´t practiced in a long while, so I´m very pleased and trust myself to be a good, safe driver thanks to Barry.

    Sophie

    I couldn´t have asked for a better driving instructor- Barry was excellent. I previously learnt with an instructor back home but stopped as I wasn´t getting on that well, but I only had a handful of lessons with Barry before I was ready to take my test- and I passed first time with two minors. He is very patient and adapts his style of teaching to your personal needs and personality. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing lessons. Thanks Barry!

    Rachel

    What a driving instructor! Put up with my confusion over left and rights and gave me the confidence to pass my test first time. Learning to drive in his car was a delight, a lot smoother than my old run around but definitely helped in my passing. Highly recommend! Thank you again so much for all your support and help during our two months of lessons! Could not have done it without you.

    Shahin

    Would truly like to thank you Barry for helping me pass 5 months ago. Totally love driving now and its the best thing that ever happened. Thanks again.

    Bob

    An excellent instructor. Barry has a great attitude that helps you to learn, and with his capable tuition I was able to pass first time. Extra credit for having a superb learner´s car and for intelligent use of technology - it´s very useful to be able to watch the footage of your drive and work out what you could improve. Also very punctual and friendly. A*.

    Phil

    Barry is simply a fantastic instructor and a genuinely great guy. I had previously failed my test a couple of years back and only recently decided to try and give it another go, this time with Barry. After a few weeks of lessons the result was that I passed without any minors whatsoever and I now feel incredibly confident behind the wheel. To be honest I have no doubt that if I had had him from the beginning I would have passed first time. In short, Barry is a true professional and I can´t recommend him enough.

    Kolie

    Thank you so much! I´ve had a few instructors over the years and was convinced I´d never pass. Barry is has been by far the best instructor I´ve had and I always recommend him. Barry´s honesty was appreciated. Thanks again Barry- though I will miss my counselling sessions.

    Ffion

    I could not have asked for a better instructor!! From not wanting to learn to drive, to getting excited for driving lessons, I think it´s fair to say I have thoroughly enjoyed learning! Barry makes learning fun and gives great feed back, always making you feel good even if you do make a silly mistake. I would recommended CF14 SOM to all my friends and some have already started using his services. Thank you very much! :).

    Andrew

    Would highly recommend Barry. Very honest, helpful and supportive. Brilliant service and a very likeable person. Thanks for getting my through my test!

    Emma G

    Was a fantastic teacher - made me feel safe and comfortable at all times and would recommend him to any driver. I´d previously learnt with a different instructor a few years before, and was reluctant to start again but Barry made me really enjoy the lessons and I´m so relieved now to have my driving licence finally ! Barry made sure I understood everything, and made every step easy. It´s so important to have an instructor you trust - couldn´t recommend him more! Thanks so much Barry !

    Rachel

    For Anyone looking for a driving instructor, I think Debra Marlow is once of the best people you can have for the job. I have been tutored by this woman for 13 months constantly, and my recent pass at my test is all because of this woman. I just wanted to say that she has excelled in her job and she has done things that you would not expect of a driving instructor to do for a pupil. At the beginning, I was nervous, always saying sorry and just a mess, and now I am a significantly less nervous mess that only says sorry occasionally. Every time I was too nervous to book a lesson, she would always call or text first when she didn´t have to, every time I was unsure or nervous about something, she was there to support me and push me so that I knew I could do it. This amazingly strong and astonishing woman has not only made me pass my test, but she has made me a stronger person at the end of it. I couldn´t ask anyone for a better driving instructor, and also a very dear friend. We have laughed together, cried together and now, after so very long, we have done it together. All I can say is thank you, Debra, you have made an impact on my life that I will never forget. Thank you. X.

    Alana

    I am very happy I chose Barry as my instructor, he was fantastic! He went out of his way to make sure I had all the information I needed and worked with me to get in all the lessons I needed before my test. He was extremely helpful in working to find me a better test date after the original one was cancelled. He was very nice, encouraging, and patient and kept me aware of everything I needed to know. Because of him, I passed on the first attempt! I will definitely recommend him to everyone 100 times over!

    Thanks Alana, I know how busy you are so really appreciate your time to write this lovely review for me. Hope the new job is going well -Take Care Barry

    Dan

    I have really appreciated the help Barry has provided me in obtaining my full licence. Even though we only had a handful of lessons his teaching methods are practical and he is excellent at picking up on potential issues and helps you realise where you can improve. My only regret is that I didn´t come to him from the start of my learning as undoubtably he would have got me through it sooner! Thank you very much Barry you are one in a million and I´m going to miss that beautiful A1!!!

    Christie

    Barry, thank you so so much for putting up with my terrible sense of direction and constant sighing. You really helped me combat my initial anxieties and allowed me to feel safe and competent behind the wheel, whilst having a laugh and enjoying learning to drive.

    Couldn´t have done it without your patience and sense of humour! Looking forward to completing pass plus!

    Your Response : Thanks Christie, but it´s you who made me laugh - It was a real pleasure to help you through to PASSING your test. Hope your brother approves of the car you are looking to get, take care Barry x

    Jef

    It was a joy and delight to have my weekly lesson with Barry. The lessons were always well thought out where we considered my weak points and work on them. His patience and encouragement gave me the confidence to pass the test first time and now onwards to driving independently on the streets! I shall miss our Saturday lessons together!

    Sara

    Fantastic instructor! Really enjoyed learning to drive with Barry! One thing I struggled with was believing in my own driving ability, but Barry helped me overcome this and gave me a lot of confidence! I couldn´t of asked for a nicer instructor. Thank you very much, I appreciate all of your time and hard work!

    Sara

    Fantastic service right from the very first lesson! Barry is very patient and honest about your ability and his only goal is to get you on the road as a competent and safe driver. I thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with Barry and the whole process of learning to drive has been fun. If you want a relaxed and enjoyable environment whilst learning to drive I highly recommend CF14 Driving School!

    Thanks Sara for your lovely kind words, but YOU were the one who put all the effort in, and easily deserved to PASS. I´ll keep my fingers crossed for you that you make the right decision to move abroad or stay in Cardiff, our loss would be their gain. All the very best for the future, Kind Regards Barry

    Ashley

    5 stars :) barry is one of the most nicest people you will meet!! he is a great teacher and who ever does have driving lessons will love it!! thank you barry for all your hard work and wish you the best!!.

    Ashley Tyres

    I have read a lot on here about Barry and I can say he is a really nice guy! But most of all a great and understanding teacher! He has helped me a lot and with Barry as a instructor you can´t go wrong!!

    Allie

    Best driving school and Barry is fantastic ,he makes you feel at ease and boosts your confidence,highly recommended, THANKS Barry,could never have passed without your confidence in me.

    Oliver

    Many thanks to Barry for his very professional, patient instruction over the last few months. I would recommend Barry to anybody considering driving lessons as he has the ability to put you at your ease and instill a sense of confidence in your driving ability. Thank you very much for your help, Barry! Diolch yn fawr iawn am eich cymorth, Barry!

    Anishka

    Fantastic teacher! Really calm and patient! Definitely increased my confidence as a driver! Very lucky to have such a kind and supportive instructor like Barry! :).

    Thanks for your lovely words - but it´s you who did all the work, fantastic day for you - WELL DONE!

    James

    FANTASTIC! I got in touch with Barry having read numerous positive reviews. I´ve had previous instructors where you are often on the road side studying the highway code or are very pushy with regards to lessons and pressure you to book numerous two hour lessons. Barry ensures you drive for the entirety of the lesson and actively encouraged me to cancel some lessons when he believed I was above test standard. Despite being busy (which is a good thing when selecting instructors), Barry easily fitted me into his timetable and ensured I kept driving and did not have long gaps so lesson availability is not an issue which is another positive I found. I would recommend Barry to anybody looking to learn or has had lessons previously like myself. As well as lessons Barry provides free online resources to help pass the theory test. I passed my theory and practical tests first time with Barry, he genuinely cares for his pupils and I strongly doubt there is a better instructor out there.

    Hannah

    Gave me the confidence I needed to get me through my test after not so good experiences with previous instructors! Always up for a laugh, always had very chilled out and enjoyable driving lessons.

    Andrew

    Thanks to Barry I was able to pass first time with only one minor! Only wish I´d done this sooner! Would recommend to anyone wanting to learn to drive, everything is broken down into simple, easy to remember systems that are perfect for getting you through the test.
    Cheers Barry!

    Dr. Ganiy Abdulrahman

    Barry is good at assessing your level of driving skill and then tailoring lessons specifically to improving your skill, and you will begin to notice the improvement yourself. His constructive criticisms and advice are particularly helpful and he is able to judge when you are ready for a test without tricking you into taking more lessons for the money. I certainly recommend him.

    Another Brilliant Effort Today 07th July 2014 with the ´Doc´ Passing his Practical Driving Test!

    A superb drive today - and heart felt and sincere well done, Ganiy you worked hard and deserved it today! Best Wishes

    Bubakar

    Thanks again barry ! You are brilliant instructor Can´t thank u enough for helping me with patient and professional manners once again thank so much to make that happened.

    Lisa

    After abortive attempts when I was younger I really had The Fear when I decided to try to learn to drive again. I´m normally a confident person but the idea of driving struck me with nerves and anxiety. My dad had just passed away and I really wanted to confront this fear and had invested a lot emotionally in passing. Barry was brilliant. He reassured me and stuck with me even when I had no self belief. I really thought I was going to be a lost cause and had left it too late and that there was too much of a mental barrier there (not to mention terrible memory!) but Barry had no doubt and all patience. Thank you so much! Hugely recommend.

    Thanks Lisa - I know how much you wanted this, so I´m really pleased, not to say proud of how well you´ve done. Enjoy your car & freedom from public transport, and remember I´m a call away if you need help in the future, Take Care Barry x

    Hardik

    I am very satisfied by the services and help Barry Thomas from CF14 School of Motoring had provided. I highly recommend anyone who want to learn driving and pass their practical test confidently without any retakes to take lessons from CF14 School of Motoring.

    CF14 school of motoring gives value for money with excellent service and quality.

    Barry Thomas helped me immensely to clear my practical test in first attempt. Thanks mate.

    JESS

    I would definitely recommend Barry as a driving instructor. He’s an incredibly calm, patient and encouraging teacher, who also put up with all my swearing with good grace whenever I made a mistake. His timings were flexible and the lessons geared to suit what I needed to work on. He’s taught me to drive safely and responsibly. I’m so pleased to have passed my test! I’ve always been really nervous about learning to drive so thank you for help get across the finish line :).

    Geoff

    Having left it to the age of 44 to learn to drive Barry had his work cut out with me. However from day one his patience and the confidence he instilled were brilliant. Thanks mate.

    Thanks Geoff - it´s never too late to learn! Enjoy that drive to Macro when stocking up & think of me!

    Beka

    I very much enjoyed my time learning to drive with Barry. He teaches you everything you need to know to pass your test and does it in a way that you don´t feel stressed. I would very much recommend!!

    Fern

    I would recommend Barry as an instructor to any of my friends. He made me feel completely at ease from the first time I met him and made learning to drive an enjoyable experience. Booking lessons online and making any changes to bookings was very easy to do so. Getting in touch with Barry was easy and he was flexible to work with picking me up from school especially. Barry was very supportive throughout my experience and I couldn´t have done it without him!!!

    Hi Fern, Thanks very much for your lovely words. As I told you from the beginning - you have always been a good driver, but with a little help, you now drive better than my wife! I really hope you are now enjoying driving your Dad´s car and wish you every success in your exams. Take Care Barry x

    Binoy Thozhukkattu

    I learnt with cf14 School of Motoring in Cardiff, He is an excellent instructor and I passed in the first practical test, I hugely recommend to everyone as I have with my friends! The fact that I got on so well with my instructor made lessons so much better and easier to understand what he was saying and also the variation of areas we would go to which gave me more experience and confidence on the road within few driving lessons. On top of that he offered me the cheapest price for my lessons so ***** for that too. Thank you Barry.

    Emma

    Would like to say a BIG thank you to Barry who puts you at ease every lesson that you have and is always there for you. Glad to of found Barry and would recommend to anyone thank you again for all that you´ve done and helping me to pass my test! - Emma Gould.

    Jess

    Barry is an amazing instructor, he´s friendly, funny and a fantastic man. Had an amazing time in every lesson and if I ever had a question he was able to answer. I have dyslexic and found Barry to be understanding and patient. I´ll miss our weekly lessons.

    Faria

    Barry is extremely prepared, organised and just amazing at what he does!! I only had a couple of lessons with him and I adjusted into the car and the way he taught the manoeuvres so well. If it wasn´t for him and his patience and belief in my driving I would not have passed today!!

    Thanks Faria - You just needed a bit of confidence, you did all the hard work, I just pointed out how good you were. Well Done, great day for you! Take Care Barry
