Thanks! Was an amazing teacher, helped me in every way possible, Do advise if anyone would like to have driving lessons... Here is your man! Always on time, done the best times suitable for me, and gave me the confidence I needed to pass my test best way possible, and always helped me out! Thanks Peter Hamilton.

Thank you everyone, couldn´t have done it without Pete’s nagging and constant reminders though haha baby brain can take a rest now , I would highly recommend Pete to anyone thinking of learning to drive because if I can pass first time with 4 minors literally anyone can.

Pete helped me to gain a lot of confidence whilst driving (those roundabouts were super confusing). His teaching methods are easy to follow and makes driving so much easier. I enjoyed my lessons and it will be a bit weird driving without Pete sitting next to me.
Sarah Smith
So happy with my pass, thank you so much Pete :) would definitely recommend to anyone! thoroughly enjoyed the lessons and found your teaching methods easy to understand. Thank you for helping me improve my confidence in driving!

So grateful for all your help in me passing my test Peter, I was scared to learn to drive and never thought i would feel comfortable in a car but thanks to you I am now already out and about ... on my own!

What can I say about Peter Hamilton?!

Little legend :)

I started off as a really nervous driver putting off driving for around 5
years, I got in the car with Pete and id look forward to driving each weekend.
Such a chilled out guy and really professional.

Would recommend him to everyone.

Passed first time with only 5 minors although they are debatable ey Pete?
my weekends already seem empty and I’m sure yours will never be the same.

Thank you once again for your patience and the banter.

I’ll be in touch when the new season of the valleys starts!

I booked a crash course with peter and from the first word we spoke on
the phone he was everything you'd want in a driving instructor. he was very
patient and helpful, and he's also a cracking bloke. i would recommend anyone to
start learning to drive with peter, no matter how confident or unconfident you
are he'll help you out and improve your driving to the required standard and
more. glad i had him, even more so that i passed my test first time. thanks
allot peter, legend!!

I was already told by my sister that peter was a top class driving
instructor and i found that out for myself after stepping into the car with him.
his constant patience and friendliness always made driving lessons a treat.
peter picked up on my faults and improved them. any questions i had he had the
answer to. i would happily recommend him to anybody. thanks Pete.

Peter is an absolute legend! I'm a typical women driver with not much
common sense and he got me ready to pass and i passed 1st time, if he can teach
me to drive then he can teach anybody, i had 2 instructors before Peter and
they couldn't see passed the nerves and just put me down and made me even more
nervous, Peter made the lesson really easy and fool proof and made the lessons
really enjoyable and was always a good laugh when out in the car, would
recommend him to anybody! especially if your a nervous driver.

Thank you Peter! your amazing! x

Peter is a great instructor! Peter was great throughout it all. He not only taught me how to drive but gave me tips on how to stay safe after i passed. Staying positive is a key thing with Peter and with his sense of humor you can guarantee a great lesson each week! So plan ahead and drive with Peter!
Thanks for everything Peter!

I just want to say that Peter has been a great instructor. He has been patient and given me all the guidance needed. Without him I would not have passed my driving test so quickly. I now have the confidence that a good driver should have. I would recommend Peter to anyone.Thanks a lot Peter.

Peter is a very good instructor to have. He is calming to start with and will be patient if you make mistakes. He won't shout at you for making mistakes but will talk you through your errors. He somehow managed to get me to pass first time and that's a good effort on his behalf. I'd recommend anyone to pick up the phone and give Peter a call

I started having lessons in May this year and passed this November!!! I never thought I would pass so soon and 1st time. Pete really boosted my confidence and always helped me when I thought I couldn't do it. He's a very calm n patient guy who always makes u feel at ease n relaxed. I would and have already recommended Pete 2 everyone I know who wants to learn to drive!!! Thanks Pete for all you done for me. I really appreciate it!!!

I was given driving lessons for Christmas of 2007. I didn't contact Peter to arrange the lessons until march 2010 as I was terrified of learning to drive! Right from the first lesson Peter made me feel at ease and learning to drive began to be an enjoyable experience, which was mainly down to Peters wild sense of humour!! In November of 2010 I passed my test first time! I'd highly recommend Peter to anyone who's interested in learning. Thanks Peter for all your patience and guidance.

I've been learning with peter since April and i would recommend him to anyone looking to have lessons. since April i have had some good lessons and a few not good ones, but not once did he lose his patience, he always said for me to learn from my mistakes. It;s always great if you learn with a patient and friendly driving instructor and he helped me through my test earlier today (30/7/2010) which i passed 1st time!!!!!

So if anyone is thinking about getting lessons they should get in with peter!

thanks mate, your a legend!

I've always been quite a nervous person when it comes to new things, driving was one of them.For my 17th birthday my dad bought me driving lessons.I didn't start them till after my 18th.. Pete is a very friendly person and i got on with him instantly which put me at ease..he has endless amount of patience and put up with me talking him to death in my two hour driving lessons. He has good banter :P and he helped me build my confidence up, i am now cruising around in my little bluebell ( blue C2) I shall be sending my brother to Pete, he has to deal with another 'Davies'
I would recommend him to anyone,deff the best driving instructor in the Bridgend area:)

After attempting to learn to drive before with an AA instructor, my partner recommended Peter. As a nervous driver he gave me the confidence to leave the industrial estate and attempt my practical test, which I passed first time!! Peter is one of the most patient and calm people i know, and was extremely accommodating with lessons around work and college. I couldn't recommend him enough and will make sure all of my friends and family wanting to learn how to drive do so with Peter :D Though I'm pretty sure he is terrified of actually facing my road rage around Bridgend.. Just kidding!

Couldn't have chosen a better instructor! So relaxed and easy to get along with which made learning more enjoyable and easy. He gave me the push i needed without which i would still be driving round and round the industrial estate! Peter was always accommodating with regards to lesson time and changes! Still can't believe i passed first time!! Thanks you so much!!!! :-D

I highly recommend peter, he is patient, friendly and always gives clear instructions. I passed first time with only two minors in a short amount of time.

I first started driving in late 2008, and my first instructor happened to be with someone from BSM. Needless to say, they were hopeless, and after 20 hours with them I'd learnt nothing, to the extent where my previous driving instructor was actually sacked from the firm (nothing to do with me, it just happened, so you can imagine the shock!)

Then, my friend recommended Peter and since my first lesson with him, I've never looked back. My driving improved tremendously and my parents were ecstatic with the results. Peter was always really friendly, very patient (my parallel park was always amusing x]) and had a great sense of humour which meant the lessons were always fun and I always looked forward to them.

I've just passed my test first time, and I would recommend Peter to anyone and everyone.

I found Peter very easy to learn with. He was always calm and made you feel less nervous on the day of your test or when you were just having a bad day. Peter always found a way to cheer you up, whether its a joke or tell you what he's doing on the weekend. He is friendly and interested in you and what you do. Found the lessons extremely useful and he was always reliable and ready to fit lessons in around you. Thanks to Peter I passed first time!!

I wasn't the quickest to pick up driving but I passed my test first time and it was all down to peter :) I couldn't wait to pass my test but I'm missing my lessons already.

I started learning with Peter at the end of January 09 and passed August 09, first time and with only 2 minors shows how good an instructor he is. Always remained patient and friendly even on the bad lessons. I recommend him to anyone who wants to learn to drive, and thank him for everything. Good luck in the future.
Ria Coates
I couldn't wait to start learning to drive when I turned 17 but was really nervous about it. As soon as I had my first lesson with Peter I knew that I'd be ok. He was so friendly and patient it put me to ease straight away, and it was like learning to drive with a friend rather than someone I barely knew. If it wasn't for Peter I don't think that I'd be driving right now. Just want to say thank you so much, I really enjoyed the learning experience with you and best of luck for the future, Pete :)

I've wanted to learn to drive for many years, and though over this time I have had a few different instructors it wasn't until I called Peter that I found the one to get me through the test. Peter was not only competent and reliable but also friendly and down to earth. He kept a relaxed atmosphere while at the same time keeping an informative and educational air. I can't recommend him enough! You'll learn without realising and more than likely pass the first time as I and the majority of his other students have. Thanks again, :D

I started driving with peter in summer 08, from the first phone call he was welcoming and friendly. On all the lessons he was clear on what had to be done. He put up with me through the good and the bad times. Peter taught me in such a professional manner, it resulted, in me passing my test the 1st time. I highly recommend to anybody who's considering doing driving lessons, to go with Peter Hamilton.

Thanks for everything Peter

I moved from England to Wales as part of a graduate rotation programme. I knew that before I moved back to England I would need to pass my test. I found Peter's website and contacted him to book some lessons. I was nervous as I was learning to drive at nearly 20 but from the very first phone call he was friendly and made me feel at ease. Each lesson Peter explained clearly what needed to be done and also why I was doing it. For me this made it easier to understand, remember and put into practice. He was always happy to answer my 100's of questions and never made me feel stupid for asking them. He developed my driving skills not just to pass my test (which I passed first time) but for actual day to day driving. He even stayed calm when I squeezed through a gap and nearly lost the wing mirror ha ha! Peter is a brilliant instructor and I would recommend him to anyone looking to pass their test. Thank you so much Peter.

I had driving lessons with peter for about 4 or 5 months and I passed my test first time. I found peter really friendly and I actually really enjoyed learning with him. He was very patient and he explained everything thoroughly. I'm not from around the area but peter made sure that I was familiar with the test routes and roads etc... before he put me in for my test, which helped alot!!!!

I didn't feel afraid to ask him questions - even to slow his speech down (as I'm English and didn't grasp the accent, ha ha) !!!!!

I would strongly recommend him to anyone wanting to learn to drive.
so now I'm enjoying the freedom - thanks to peter - cheers!!!!

I started having lessons in 2005 with another instructor and failed my test 3 times so I didn't go back for any more lessons. Then in 2007 I started having lessons with Peter and passed on my fourth time but first with Peter. I found him very friendly, patient, understanding and he explained everything as easy as he could for me to digest it all. I was very nervous but he helped me to build my confidence if it wasn't for Peter I think I would not have driven again so thank you very much Peter
