It was a pleasure teaching Olga. She took and passed her Test in Belvedere test centre. Wishing you the best and I shall look forward to seeing you on the road in your swanky new car!

Paul is a brilliant driving instructor and have a patience of a saint :) Really good at explaining everything, would definitely recommend.
Osman called me up for some refresher lessons. He hadn’t driven for over 5 years and just wanted to polish his skills so he could buy a car to drive to his new job. He was a pleasure teach and picked up things very quickly. Wishing you the best Osman.

Paul is very calm and concise. He gives very clear instructions and great tips as you are driving. His lessons build up perfectly to continuously improve your skills. It had been 5 years since I got my licence and had last driven, but by the end of my tenth booster lesson I felt really confident to go and get my first car. Thank you Paul.
Richard had an amazing driving Test in Hither Green. He passed with flying colours only getting 1 driver fault.

Paul is an excellent instructor with wonderful patience, strong discipline and extremely good observation skills which all contribute to his overall instruction to a very high standard. I would thoroughly recommend him.

Stephan took a semi intensive course with me and passed his test in Hither Test first time. He had taken a few lessons a many years ago but wanted to get his licence asap so we worked really hard together preparing him for his test which he aced!

Paul is an excellent instructor. I was learning to drive at the age of 30, after having taken a few introductory lessons a long time before that, and found him to be very patient, even with obvious questions, and direct and honest. He had lots of useful suggestions and advice at every stage, advised me well on when to attempt the test, and I passed first time with 3 minors, a result I was very happy with. Would not hesitate to recommend him to anybody.”

Harriet took an intensive course with me over a 2 week period and took and passed her test in Hither Green Test Centre first time. She worked so hard and really deserved to pass with flying colours. I shall look forward to seeing her for some motorway lessons soon.

"Paul has been a brilliant driving instructor from start to finish. I began learning to drive a number of years ago but stopped before attempting a test. I was quite apprehensive about trying to learn again but Paul was calm and reassuring throughout, meaning I enjoyed lessons far more than I’d anticipated! He explained concepts clearly and demonstrated skills/manoeuvres so I could get my head around them before attempting them myself, which helped me to learn. He was incredibly patient, and put me at ease when I felt more nervous, e.g. By selecting quieter routes so I could get into the swing of driving before trying a new skill. 

With huge thanks to Paul, I managed to pass my test first time (contrary to my own expectations!), and I would have no hesitation in recommending 1stime Pass to others.

"Having failed a couple of tests a few years ago, I picked driving back up booking a few lessons with Paul. His patience, sense of humour and attention to detail ensured that the learning experience was a joy and I managed to pass on the second attempt this time around. Paul's tuition was professional and stood me in great stead for the test."

Zsnatte passed in Erith - many congratulations!

"I passed my driving test a few weeks ago after taking lessons with Paul. He was patient, professional and encouraging. Lessons were well-structured, we didn't move on to trickier roads or manoeuvres until I was comfortable to do so. Practicing around the test centre was invaluable on the day of the test. Learning with Paul made me a safe and competent driver, I can't recommend him highly enough! Thanks!"

Rob was another first timer passer would did really well on a difficult test route. I shall look forward to seeing Rob for his Pass Plus next month.

"Paul was a great help preparing me for the driving test and thanks to his tuition I was able to pass first time! He is a very patient instructor and has a great eye for detail, always remaining calm despite a few near misses when first starting out!

It wasn't the quickest learning experience due to work commitments and no opportunity for private practice, but Paul was always willing to work around my schedule and was a genuinely nice guy to spend hours in a car with.

Sarah passed her test at Erith Test Centre on her first attempt. Massive congratulations on a well deserved pass!

"Paul is a fantastic driving instructor. I was prepared to take it at my own pace - being maturer in age than your average learner - and Paul's patience made it an enjoyable and relaxed environment to learn. He was incredibly thorough and amenable throughout. I highly recommend him, especially in light of him giving me the skills and confidence to pass first time!"

I was absolutely delighted when Joseph passed his test 1st time in Hither Green. Much deserved congratulations! I shall look forward to seeing you for your Pass Plus.

"I passed my driving test with Paul as my instructor on 9 September after about 30 hours of lessons. I passed first time! As an "older" learner, I couldn't have asked for a better outcome and much of the credit must go to Paul's excellent instruction. Paul explains everything clearly and patiently with a good dose of humour. He is also a top bloke. 2 hours is a long time to be in a car with someone but Paul's lessons were always a pleasure."

Michael had an amazing 1st time pass at Hither Green Driving Test Centre with only 1 driver fault ! Well done on all those mirror checks, I knew you could do it...!

"Learning how to pass my test felt easy. Paul put me at ease, pulled me out of my bad habits and was always calm and relaxed when teaching.
I passed my test 1st time with one minor (that I shouldn't of got!) I would well recommend this guy to anyone wanting to learn!
As well as being an amazing teacher, he is also one of the funniest people I know!"
David took his Test in Hither Green. Unfortunately I was unable to take him to his test due to a prior booking but he made proud when he called to tell me he passed! Well done, see you soon David!

"Paul was a very good and dedicated driving instructor. I was a complete novice when he took me on, and thanks to a great deal of patience and dedication from his part, I was turned into a competent driver in the short space of three months. We encountered a few problems in my first two driving tests, some of which were beyond our control (we still believe I actually passed on my first test), and whilst I didn't in the end pass the test on his car (he was otherwise engaged on the day), I couldn't have passed my third test with a single minor fault without him. I will definitely contact him for the plus pass certificate once I secure a car."

Uzayar took his test in Sidcup and passed with just 2 driver faults. Many congratulations!

"A lot was covered in the lessons which meant I was ready for my test fairly quickly, and everything was taught to me well and was practiced thoroughly so I knew what to expect. Also I was given freedom to focus on things I wasn't that confident on which helped on improving those things. My instructor also identified some areas which I needed to improve on which we then focused on to improve and get better."

Buddy passed his test in Hither Green on his first attempt! Congratulations on a great pass Buddy!


"After having trouble with my first instructor Paul was a great choice to help me get back on the road learning. He was always friendly and accommodating and I always felt confident with his tutoring. He was patient with me when I struggled and that was a massive plus for me. Was certainly a massive influence in helping me pass my test 1st time."

Chetan passed his test in Hither Green with just 5 driver faults! looking forward to seeing you for your Pass Plus soon...!

"I have had a wonderful experience with BSM. My driving instructor Paul has been expectional. He maintained a level of professionalism, but at the same time he would also approach me in a friendly way. I have had previous driving instructors and Paul by far has been the best! He constantly motivated me, ensured that I made the most of my lesson. Paul is very knowledgeable and is great at his job! His interpersonal skills are excellent. I am very happy that I had a driving instructor like Paul as he made me feel confident when driving. I looked forward to every driving lesson as he made the lesson fun. Thanks so much Paul!"

Well done to Louise to a great 1st time pass at Hither Green Test Centre.

"I had already been driving for some time but wasn't happy with my instructor, so switched to Paul who was absolutely fantastic. My confidence and ability rose immediately and the improvement in my driving was clear from the very first lesson. 
Paul was great at highlighting what I needed to improve on and making sure I was happy at the pace/progression of the lessons, and was very easy to schedule lessons with. 
Would definitely recommend"

Catherine had a great result in Hither Green TC with only 1 driver fault! Fantastic, all your hard work really paid off!!

"Paul's explanations and instructions were clear and thorough, allowing me to get the most out of each lesson. Paul is also very patient and calm, and has a good sense of humour, which helped me to feel confident driving and also made my lessons go quicker. The hourly rate that I paid through BSM seemed a little expensive, but I feel that this was justified by the high level of service that I received"

"I couldn't rate Paul more highly. As a very nervous learner driver he was exceptionally patient, kind and encouraging. His sense of humour and excellent teaching skills ensured that I passed second time and am now a confident driver - something I thought I would never be. He will also be teaching my son to drive in a few months and will be recommending him to anyone looking to learn. "

Sandra passed her practical driving test with 1stimepass.co.uk at Belvedere Test Centre, well done Sandra.
"After I failed my test, I realised that I needed to go back to the drawing board. I changed driving instructors and I was AMAZED at the difference! Paul is a patient, understanding and friendly driving instructor who always put me at ease in the car. Paul helped me understand that even though I was a 'satisfactory' driver, I needed to work on some of the essential driving skills not only needed to pass my test but to become a safe driver in the future. Paul allowed me to work at my own pace, but also pushed me to tackle areas I found difficult. If you are looking for an excellent driving instructor who has a good sense of humour and deliver results to help you pass your test - I strongly recommend learning to drive with Paul! I finally passed my test and can reverse around the corner like a real pro! Thanks so much!" 
Neil Williams: "Paul is extremely patient and explains driving techniques very well. He is also very friendly and was very keen for me to pass my driving test. Very narrowly missed out on a first-time pass and passed the second attempt with only one minor. Highly recommended"
Hana K: "When I first started my lessons I did not enjoy learning. I contacted BSM and they offered me to change the instructor and I could see a huge difference when I did my lessons with Paul. He is a great instructor, explains perfectly, professional has a great sense of humour which puts you at ease during the lessons. For me he is the best of the best. "
