I have lived in Bury St Edmunds since 2005 and have a great knowledge of the roads in BSE and the surrounding villages.

I have been driving for over 30 years and became an Approved Driving Instructor so that I can pass on my experience and expertise to help you pass your test and become a safe, confident driver.

Call me today and I'll do my best to help you get on the road and enjoy the benefits of being a fully qualified driver!

"Honestly couldn't have asked for a better driving instructor! Andy is the most calm instructor there is and you can learn an insane amount from him! He delivers his speech in the best possible way so there is absolutely no confusion on what you need to do! Thanks a lot Andy! Keep doing what you're doing mate!"

"Andrew is an absolutely excellent driving instructor! I learnt partially how to drive when I was 17, and I had my confidence knocked significantly by another instructor. When I finished university, I was desperate to start driving quickly, and that was something that Andy was excellent for! He really helped my build my confidence back up, and taught me to not overthink too much. He made me realise that driving is actually super easy!! Andy is also good if you’re a chatter box (like myself), and he really does help you to feel comfortable driving. He also helped me to pass first time (YAY). I honestly couldn’t recommend him more highly (especially after trying 4 other instructors), and I certainly couldn’t have passed without him. Thank you Andy! I really appreciate it!!"

"He is an amazing driving instructor I couldn’t ask for a better one. He’s patient and kind and always so encouraging. I wouldn’t suggest anyone go anywhere else!"  

(Niamh Murray)

"Such a great instructor, patience of a saint and fool proof methods of learning how to do manoeuvres. Cannot recommend enough with not just teaching you how to drive safely for the test but for the future also. Thank you so much and I will miss our drives and all we used to see on them. xxxx"

"We thought we had left a review but we hadn’t so here we go. What can we say after my son had two bad experiences with driving instructors along came Andy and he changed my sons driving attitude. He couldn’t wait to have his lessons and he was no longer cancelling them behind our backs. He was enjoying his lessons and couldn’t wait till his next lesson. Andy was calm patient and funny and as a result of that my son passed first time. So a big thank you and I will using Andy again when my other son is 17 and wants to drive. #top driving instructor."
