First time pass
Thanks for everything Barry! You made me feel very comfortable every time and I am chuffed to bits with passing! Like I said in the car, it's bitter sweet to of passed, because felt there was a good friendship there! Thankyou once again mate!

First time pass
Barry holds himself to the measure that not only does he want you to pass your driving test, but he wants every one of his students to be able to drive safely and confidently for as long as they’re on the road. His experience as an instructor has allowed him to gather just about every tool under his belt to ensure a first time pass, and he will go happily out of his way to help you in doing so. I had read that Barry was a premium teacher from day one ‘how to turn on the engine’, right the way through to leaving the testing centre with a certificate - and that was exactly the experience I got. I really couldn’t recommend him enough for students of all abilities!

First time pass
Barry was the best instructor I could’ve asked for. Very understanding and patient with me. Managed to get a first time pass which which I couldn’t of done with out him. Would 100% recommend:)

First time pass
I couldn't recommend Barry enough for people who are looking for a friendly, adaptable and reliable driving instructor. Barry went out of his way to accommodate to my needs to fit in enough lessons before my test, despite all the pressure of the backlog after lockdown. Barry adapted his lessons to my requirements, depending on how much practice I was able to do outside the lessons, and whatever I needed to work on. He is very patient, and uses different teaching methods to reinforce learning, such as providing a handbook. The way Barry teaches boosted my confidence immensely, not only to pass the test but for driving independently and safely for life. Thank you, Molly

First time pass
I would definitely recommend learning to drive with Barry, he was always patient and gave me all of the support that I needed. He never raised his voice and he always gave me a chance to fix my mistakes on my own without putting pressure on me. He was very accommodating when my schedule changed and continuously went out of his way to ensure that I received enough lessons before my test.

First time pass
After switching instructors I didn’t expect Barry to improve my driving in the way that he did. He will not only teach you how to pass the driving test but will generally improve your driving and give you the confidence to drive after passing your test. He is very nice guy and remains very calm in the car. The car itself is a good learner car being petrol will help give you the skills to drive any car. Overall Barry is a great instructor and I would recommend to anyone who is looking to start lessons.

First time pass
Extremely helpful and clear in his instructions and explanations. I needed a new instructor due to the pandemic and he had me test ready in no time, with a pass first on my first go. Overall excellent experience.

Lockdown succes
After being let down by another instructor Barry stepped in at short notice and continued my lessons. He has given me great confidence in my ability to drive and thanks to him I have now passed my test. I would most definitely recommend him to everyone.

A great instructor
I wouldn’t recommend any other driving instructor other than Barry he is 10/10 with his teaching and the way you have control over what you learn next really helps you get more confidence in driving, also the car is easy to drive and learn in.

I sat my test 3 years ago with a different instructor and failed, and never got round to taking it again. After 3 years of no driving, Barry got me ready to pass my test first time (the second time around) in just 6 weeks. He let me choose what I wanted to focus on for each lesson, worked around my work schedule, and let me choose how long I wanted the lessons to be, helping me feel completely ready to sit my test. Couldn't have asked for a better instructor and a nicer guy and would 100% recommend him to anyone! Thanks again for everything and for getting me my license finally!!!

I started my lessons with Barry in January, I was really nervous but he helped me feel reassured. He is very patient and understanding. He goes through everything so I understand it. I was given a workbook, it helps me with the knowledge so I can learn at home and it helps me keep track of where I'm at each week. If I'm unsure of something from a lesson I will watch one of training videos and I'm fully aware of it by the next lesson. Overall Barry is a friendly and patient driving instructor.

Archie Grech
I find that working/driving with Barry really enjoyable, he keeps a calm attitude it helps you to relax and learn from mistakes instead of worrying. He provides more than enough material and resources to help me educate myself and learn a lot faster when I'm at home. I find that the way that Barry does things helps me to keep calm and understand the details of stuff instead of just knowing enough to get by.

Gemma Simpson
I am a student of Barry Mitchell’s. In my experience, from having 3 other instructors, I have found him to be the most relaxing, patient and understanding. Barry is extremely easy to talk to which makes you very comfortable, and is always reliable. He has helped get my confidence back and I’m sure he will get me passed, finally! I’m looking forward to doing my lessons again with him after the covid 19 isolation.

Ben Ruskington
Having had a few instructors due to various reasons i needed help to regain my confidence in driving as i felt i was close to just giving up. Barry has been patient, giving me plently of time to interpret his instruction and execute. With Barry ive been helped to make my drive smoother and drive with more confidence. The LDC website and skills work but have been excellent tools for me to continue to learn outside of my time at the wheel.

Nathan Parker
Barry is very informative, gives constructive criticism, which I like. You are very patient with me. I just appreciate your kindness, and your willingness to teach me to drive.
