At the age of 34 I decided to give driving a go again after endless failed tests 10 years previously.  I looked online with so many instructors to choose from I decided to give Winstones Driving School a call.  I immediately felt at ease explaining my situation regarding my previous failures.  I booked a 10 hour block and booked the test not long after.  Paul was very calm and patient and very easy to get on with.  I passed my test today 2/2/16.  I am very happy and would personally recommend Paul (Winstones Driving School) whether you have little or no experience at all.   Cheers Paul.

Paul at Winstones Driving School smashed it. I did 15 hours over 3 days and passed it with only 3 minors.  I'm over the moon as I passed it first time which I didn't think would happen, but Paul proved me wrong.  Not only did I gain my licence but I gained more self confidence and a friend.  My licence will open up more doors for me work wise and will easily pay for itself.

“I would like to thank Winstones Driving School for giving me the opportunity to help me pass my driving test first time; Paul was a great instructor and was brilliant at helping me to get out of bad habits and to pass my test. I will highly recommend Winstones Driving School to any person wishing to pass the test.

Again, big thanks from Darren Hayhurst.”

“Paul & Rachel

Just a quick note to say a massive thank you to both of you for your assistance in helping me through my driving test. Right from the first phone call with Rachel and her advice on the theory test through to those nervous moments in the waiting room with Paul before my test - you were both fantastic.

What I was fearing to be the most terrifying experiences of my life was made to be one of the most relaxing and painless - I can't thank you both enough.

I still don't think it has sunk in.... after just one week... I CAN DRIVE!”

Andrew from Deal in Kent

"I had used a few instructors before I decided to use Winstones Driving School for a 5 day intensive course. Paul was a really good instructor he made me feel comfortable and confident with what I was doing, but at the same time gave me full guidance on everything that was needed for the test.  I took the test on the Friday and passed first time. Thanks for getting me on the road!!"

"A really great course, a friendly and encouraging instructor who made learning to drive a very enjoyable experience.  I would recommend the intensive course and Winstones Driving School to anyone considering learning to drive!"

S. Blandford - Folkestone, Kent

"I found this to be the best way of getting my licence.  In total I have had 3 different instructors, and found Paul to be the best. He got me through my test!!

He is patient and extremely good at his job. The course it's self is enjoyable and did have a laugh or two.  I would highly recommend him to anybody who is thinking of taking lessons, either hourly or intensive.

Thanks again Paul & Rachael."

Steph, Deal, Kent

"Paul was an amazing instructor and he got me through my driving test in just 5 days. I was a very emotional and Nervous Learner at that time but he made sure I felt positive and say to myself " I CAN DO THIS ", And Passed First time ...Wow ...Paul sure had patience, Highly recommended if anybody wants to learn and pass in just 1 week and great value in price.

Thanks Paul and Rachel"

Emma, Essex

"I would just like to say a BIG HUGE Thank You to Paul for all your patience and guidance over the week.  You made me feel that I could pass my test.  An intensive course is exactly that, it was very tiring but extremely worthwhile.  I would definitely say that it was the best week off work I have had! It still hasn't sunk in that after just 25 hours’ worth of lessons I passed my test.  I can only say that it must be a testament to Pauls teaching methods!"

Rachel T, from Deal

"The 15 hour intensive course was well worth doing. Had already taken my test twice and was very eager to pass before the end of 2007. Thanks to Paul I managed it, and managed it well! Very good for confidence building, and I appreciate all of Paul and Rachael's help.

Thanks again."

Rachel L. from Deal

 "I would recommend the 5-day intensive with Paul to everyone wanting to learn to drive! Paul made me feel at ease and gave me great guidance; I went on the Monday and passed on the Friday with 1 minor!"


"Thank you both so much for getting me through my test, I felt at ease from start to finish, and would like to thank Paul for his patience and brilliant tuition.  Many thanks once again and all the best to you and your family. Cheers!”

Mark, Faversham

“I would like to say a HUGE thank you to Paul for teaching me how to learn to drive.

He helped me to get lots of confidence while I was learning and I got on with him really well. He guided me through in many lessons of a structured way and helped me to prepare for my test. He’s the only one who has the most successful driving instructor in Kent to teach of deaf and hard of hearing, who have passed the driving test for the first time!

Paul was so friendly, patient and really helpful with my driving. He is a really worth it and he is a really good driving instructor. Anyone who wants to learn to drive, I would recommend him to anyone. Paul, thank you for helping me to pass my driving test.”

Chris - Deal, Kent


Since the year 2000 i have been attempting to drive, 11 hours here, 11 hours there, running out of money in between. Twelve years later i try again-its now 2012. Another 11 hours go by- then we move to Kent.... 

Finally i have enough money to do an intensive course. I got in touch with Paul, booked in advance as he was very busy-fantastic instructor, patient, etc,etc. I felt very much at home straight away. Paul was also a confidence builder which was very much needed.                                                                             Anyway i eventually got to the test day all the hard work and concentration paid off. After a few rocky days i passed first time, after 17 years.                        Fantastic feeling. Thanks very very much Paul. kind Regards, Neil.

''Paul's intensive course was perfect for me -he was thoroughly supportive throughout the week and not a minute was wasted. I was stretched and challenged each day and simply never expected to be able to progress as quickly as i did. Thanks to his formidable patience and concise explanation, and underlying positivity, i was able to pass first time. Lessons were a satisfying combination of relaxed yet efficient -I would recommend Paul to anyone who wants to enjoy learning to drive."

Just wanted to say a massive Thank you to Paul for helping me pass first time! After a couple of different instructors that didn't work out, i decided to do a four day intensive course with my test on the last day. It went extremely quickly and Paul was amazing! He didn't just teach me how to pass the test, but he taught me how to drive properly. I had a lot of bad habits and very little confidence driving, but by the end of the course all that went out the window and i felt confident and ready for my test! It definitely was an intense few days, but so worth it. Paul is an amazing instructor that gets the job done. This was honestly the best money i have ever spent, and it has changed my life!! Couldn't be happier or any more thankful to Paul!
