Gary Bates is a top class teacher, he helped me pass my test. i would recommend him to everyone. Kerri Temperton, Bursledon.

I would definitely recommend Gary Bates. Gary was always very patient and committed. I decided to learn to drive almost 20 yrs(!!) after most people and must admit I never found it easy, but Gary helped me to build my confidence and overcome my nerves. I couldn't have passed without him!! Thanks again Gary :) Denise Moses, Bassett

Gary is a brilliant instructor and helped build my confidence and skills enabling me to pass within 4 months and on my first attempt. I have already recommended him to friends, family and colleagues. He is highly experienced and patient and dont think you could get a better instructor. Thanks Gary. Charlotte Clark, lordswood

Big thank you to Gary Bates for leading me in the right direction to passing my test. Gary is very professional but also approachable enough talk out any worries or fears you may have.

I would highly recommend! Abbie-Jane, Upham.

I learned with Gary Bates, after a couple of friends recommended him, and I would recommend him to anyone!He was patient (and I definitely tested that at times!) And adapted my lessons to improve my weakest points perfectly, until I passed first time! Rachel Colmer, Bitterne.

Gary Bates was recommended to me by a friend. I found him to have a lot of patience and he taught in a highly professional manner. He is friendly and calming and managed to get me through to my test which I passed first time within 7 months. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.

Thanks Gary! Jess, Eastleigh

I was put in contact with Gary Bates, and I'm really glad. He was professional, calm and patient. He really helped me keep my nerves at bay!! I would thoroughly recommend Gary to new drivers or to those who have previously failed like myself. Gemma Miller, Hedge End

I started lessons with a national driving school. I was nervous, lacking confidence and not enjoying my lessons. I discovered Gary in a local paper and found him to be much more patient and able to get the best out of me. I went on to pass my test first time - thoroughly recommended.

Steve, Shirley

I was put in contact with Gary Bates, he was patient and professional, and his lessons were developed around what yI needed to work on. I would recommend him to anyone looking to learn how to drive. He managed to do the impossible and keep my nerves under control. Francesca, Bitterne

Reliable, punctual and approachable. Gary was able to get me to relax which then improved my concentration and driving. I enjoyed my lessons and went on to pass first time. Lisa, Eastleigh

I was recommended to Gary by a colleague at work. Both my sons have learned and enjoyed their lessons with Gary. They have since both passed their tests first time. I would definitely recommend Gary to my friends and colleagues. Mrs B, Chandler's Ford

I had a licence from my own country and needed a UK driving licence for work. I did an intensive course with Gary. He was calm, professional and his knowledge definitely improved my driving. I now have a UK driving licence and Gary has since taught my wife. She was extremely nervous, but has now also passed. Definitely recommended. Dave, Bitterne
