Customer Reviews

The following are 100% authentic, customer reviews of our customers experience with BIG TOM Driving School:

“…I was beyond satisfied with the course….”

“On day one of the course I barely knew the difference between the brake and the accelerator. I was a very anxious driver having had a prior traumatic experience, but Tom was conscious of this and was always calm and collected. He knew when to let me build my confidence and when to push me, and by day 5 of the course I felt as though I had really learned a lot and felt much more at ease behind the wheel. There was no pressure for me to pass a test on day 5, and Tom provides an action plan including bolt on lessons and test bookings for his customers that need some extra time.
Overall I was beyond satisfied with the course and would recommend it to anyone.” Rose Hanmer from Grantham

“…recommend highly for any level of driver…”

“During my week with Tom not only have I learnt about driving, I have grown in confidence and thought about things I have never considered previously.  I look forward to continuing my learning journey with Tom.  I would recommend highly for any level of driver whether it’s a complete beginner or experienced”.  Abby Ward from Bourne

“Tom did his utmost to accommodate me at short notice”

“I just want to take the opportunity to thank Tom for the fantastic driving course he provided for me which resulted in passing my test first time.

Having a very limited window of opportunity due to work, I called as a long shot on the Friday afternoon to start the course the following week.  Tom did his utmost to accommodate me at short notice and devised a plan that fit entirely to my requirements with flexibility and an appreciation of the time constraints I was under.

As an instructor Tom was both patient and encouraging, striking a fine balance between identifying faults and praising strengths.  He created an engaging, student-led learning environment in which I felt comfortable talking about any problems openly and guided the direction of the sessions to best address my needs.  The lessons were conducted with professionalism but Tom’s cheerful character also helped to take the pressure out of what could have been a stressful experience.

I would highly recommend Tom as a driving instructor” Sam Ford – Lincoln

“Feel like I am now confident and safe to drive on the road”

“I found the 5 day intense course very! helpful.  Each day we worked on things I found challenging and they improved very fast….    The pick up and drop off service was better than I ever hoped even when I changed it last minute where I was supposed to be collected from.  Big Toms driving school is definitely getting recommended.  He always had such positive things to say with the feedback.  I feel like I am now confident and safe to drive on the road.  As well for even showing me the car parts to help me through life!”  Jessica Buckley from Sawtry

“Would 100% recommend Big Tom”

“Really enjoyable and relaxed environment.  Was worried before I started that 4 hours would drag, but I have really enjoyed the course.  I feel my driving has really improved and my confidence has as well as a result of this.  Would 100% recommend Big Tom”  Mark Craig from Sleaford

“I’ve learnt so much this week”

Very enjoyable week with Tom, after a rubbish instructor many years ago that put me off driving.  Tom has made my nerves calm.  He is very easy going and easy to talk to.  If I was nervous on going to do something he would explain it calmly and easy for me to understand.  He never got cross/annoyed.  If on turning in the road or reverse parking I messed up, he was calm and said, let’s just try again.  I’ve learnt so much this week and even did the big roundabouts on Friday that I was so worried to do near the start of the week.  I would highly recommend Big Tom driving school to anyone I know wanting to learn to drive”  Leah Bryant from Whittlesey

“I felt very comfortable in my experience”

“Learning to drive with Tom helped me so much with my confidence. After not driving for a year and having a couple of instructors before him I felt very comfortable in my experience. I passed on my 2nd time and would highly recommend Tom to anyone looking for a friendly instructor who can give them the confidence they need on the road.” Zoe Briggs from Peterborough

 

“…from the first 5 minutes I was put at ease by Tom…”

I was a bit hesitant going into the intensive course, 4 hours of driving for 5 days straight seemed like a big ask.  But from the first 5 minutes I was put at ease by Tom.  My second attempt at my driving test (first with a different driving school), using the intensive course as a refresher and what a great decision it was.  Nothing was a problem for Tom or Tara and everything was made as stressless as possible.  I would recommend to first time drivers and those looking to re-take their driving test.  Professional, considerate, thorough.”  Ryan Sismey from Spalding

 

“I have been with previous driving instructors before Tom and I can say they were not as helpful and friendly as him”

“I would like to say a big thank you to Big Tom driving school after helping me pass my driving test first time in Boston. If any one is looking for a driving instructor, Tom is a top bloke he is very calming.
I can promise you if he can help you he will.I was really stressed about the whole driving experience to start with but Tom was a big help.He also has a YouTube channel with many videos which i know i would watch the night before a lesson. or evan if i wasn’t sure on something there will allways be a future reference so yet again he goes above and beyond to help.

I have been with previous driving instructors before Tom and i can say they were not as helpful and friendly as him.

The test went nice a smooth in my opinion the manoeuvre i did on the test was pulling up on the right hand side of the road doing a straight reverse back two car length and then moving off again.A couple of times he would ask you to pull up on the left at a safe place he asked me just before a junction that was on the right so i made sure to clear it before pulling over.

Think it helped the fact that that you know have 20 mins of following a satnav. it did for me at least it kind of break’s the silence so you are not just listing to one man/ women for the whole test. I think it helped the fact the examiner was a friendly bloke witch does help.

I would higly recommend big tom driving school to all and hope everyone has good luck with all future endevors.”  Adam Favell from Holbeach

 

“I could feel myself progressing as the days went on…”

Helpful driving instructor, very informative five day course from beginning to end.  I could feel myself progressing as the days went on and as I was told about different ways of learning and developing new skills which is very good for confidence while driving especially as a learner” Billy Brooks from Castle Bytham

 

“..at no time did I feel under any pressure or stress” 

“After a few set backs with the weather I could not and will not fault the teaching at all.  The week was structured perfectly to my learning style.  Extremely friendly and patient and really made the week up to my test comfortable and at no time did I feel under any pressure or stress” Harry Adams from Bourne 

 

“…explaining things in depth when I’ve needed it….”

“Thanks tom had a wonderful week working with you, thank you for being very patient with me and explaining things in depth when I’ve needed it. Also a great big thanks to being flexible with times and just generally putting up with me I now feel I am able to drive but not test ready just yet but hoping to work with you again in a couple of weeks to get me to that standard thanks once again” Deanne Bramwell from Boston

“Tom was able to highlight personal strengths and weaknesses and plan a course of action”

“My experience was enjoyable”

“Tom was very friendly and helpful.  I was nervous to start the course and it was my first time being in a driver seat.

“I highly highly recommend to everyone that wants to learn to drive”

“Absolutely fantastic driving school, I booked the 5 day intensive course on which I gained alot of experience and knowledge on how to drive.

“Tara made the test booking process seamless”

“What can I say? Tom is a Legend! He helped a nervous driver gain confidence in a supportive atmosphere. I had very little driving experience, and in just 20 hours he had me test ready and I passed FIRST time!! If you are looking for a patient, knowledgeable instructor Big Tom is your man!

On a side note (but equally important) Tara made the test booking process seamless and kept me updated every step of the way. I was very impressed with the text message the night before my test wishing me luck! It was a nice touch and shows how much Tara, Tom and the rest of the Big Tom team really care about their students.

I will be recommending Big Tom Driving School at every opportunity.”  Jason Dean from Peterbororough

“Tom gave me some brilliant resources to look at”

“This was a great way to learn how to drive. Tom gave me some brilliant resources to look at prior to my 5 day intensive course. Before starting my lessons, I had no driving experience in a car and by the end of the week, i passed my test first time. He was patient, friendly, helpful and very encouraging. He gave me all the advise and confidence I needed. I highly recommend BIG TOM intensive driving course to anyone whose looking to pass their test.”  Sam Smith from Sleaford

 

“Adapted to my needs and listened to me”

“BIG TOM was the only driving school in the area to provide an intensive course.  I had a brilliant instructor, he adapted to my needs and listened to me when I had concerns.  I couldn’t thank him enough for how quickly he helped me learn to drive and how nice and considerate he was to me throughout my experience.”  James Youds from Haconby

 

“If you want to learn quickly this course is really useful”

“If you want to learn quickly this course is really useful.  I learnt so much from being a beginner driver to driving round Peterborough in the rush hour.  Theory resources online are really good and the videos, especially for watching prior to the course to make yourself more comfortable when meeting Tom for the first time.  Tara is super helpful and accommodating.”  Anna Forbes-Rogers from Bourne

“Chris showed me excellent tips which I would not have know myself”

“I am pleased that I passed my driving test with the help of my driving instructor today.

If I have friends who wish to take lessons I will tell them of your driving school and once again many thanks for all.” Shaun Dowdeswell from Spalding

“The most confident I’ve felt behind the wheel and the most I’ve enjoyed it”

“I chose BIG TOM because I had tried “normal” lessons but the breaks in between hadn’t suited my learning style.  The main advantages of BIG TOM for me was the intensity of the course and the ‘pick up/drop back’ service offered.  This is the most most confident I’ve felt behind the wheel and the most I’ve enjoyed it”.  Lizzy Lunn from Bourne

“I would definitely recommend BIG TOM Driving School and wish I’d gone with Tom in the first place”

“I started driving with Tom after failed a test with another instructor. He build my confidence by giving me clear instruction on how to improve my driving. He used different techniques to show what to do. I found the mock tests we did really helpful and showed me exactly what the examiner would be looking for. Driving every day with Tom gave me much more experience than having a lesson weekly. Tom made everything easy by booking my initial test and then finding me a cancelation because he thought I was ready to take my test earlier. On day 5 I took my test and passed with no driver errors. I would definitely recommend Big Tom Driving School and wish I’d gone with Tom in the first place.”  Oliver Stephenson from Carlby

“Tom was never late to a lesson, never on his phone during a lesson”

“Highly recommending Tom and big Tom Driving School and here’s why…. I was NEVER going to be a driver.. NEVER NEVER! Then I found Tom , the only instructor who’s managed to calm me down enough to get out of 2nd gear. I have severe anxiety and also a condition which affects my memory , Tom would teach me things and I would forget but he didn’t ever get stressed with me or even raise his voice … not once! He stayed calm and patient and yesterday I passed my driving test! Tom was never late to a lesson, never on his phone during a lesson. So many other instructors are late, rude and impatient. If you want a driving teacher who takes his job seriously and does everything he can to make you feel ok, then Tom is your guy :)”  Rhiannon Kirby from Grantham

 

“I never thought that I would ever be able to learn so much in only 5 days”

“I would highly recommend Big Tom driving school to anyone. Tom Ingram is very knowledgeable, confident and patient driving instructor with excellent communication skills.

“Best money I have spent”

“After trying different instructors for a few years I found Tom through my Grandad, with very few lessons I passed first time! Best money I have spent :)” Louise Burrows from Peterborough

 

“Would recommend!”

“This was my second time on the BIG TOM intensive course and it was just as enjoyable.  He catered to my needs and prepared me for my driving test.  I felt that there were going to be no surprises on the driving test because of how prepared I was.  Would recommend!” Mark Craig from Sleaford

 

“You were always so calm even when I made mistakes”

Thanks for all your help and instruction on teaching me to drive (and pass my test first time). A few points about my time learning with you:

I found you very easy to communicate with, both in the car during lessons and on the phone (text). You put me at ease on the very first lesson with you and you were always so calm even when I made mistakes. It was nice that you were always early so my lessons always started on time.

You were also very good at explaining things in the simplest of ways and not over complicating things. I also thought it was fantastic that nearing my test date we took my lessons in my own car after we’d decided to use my car for my test. This was so useful as I wasn’t swapping from one car to another and I’m sure this played a big part on my test.

I really want to thank you again for getting me to such a high standard which will hopefully stay with me for life and I’m sure this is why I passed with only one minor (stupid one).” Liam Watkinson from Stamford

 

“He doesn’t pressurise you when you make mistakes”

” I found learning with Tom to be very effective. He doesn’t pressurise you when you make mistakes and makes it a cool calm driving experience. I had very little driving experience when I started, and passed my test within 9 days, and I put that down to the way I was taught. Very effective and efficient service – much appreciated. Will definitely recommend to anybody. Bargain price too!” Andy Graham from Peterborough

 

“He will make sure you pass your test with a high standard”

“What a driving instructor Tom is! A great driving instructor. Having come from a full bike licence and wanting to be on four wheels I chose tom and was never disappointed with him at all. He is really friendly and gives great advice and will put you at ease and also make sure you will pass your test with a high standard. I really cannot recommend him enough. I passed first time only one minor. Job well done. Thank you Tom” Gordon Annis from Bourne

 

“Pushes you to improve”

“Very much enjoyed the sessions.  Allowed you to go at your own pace but at the same time pushes you to improve.  Lots of reflection during lesson at points that go wrong or things that went well”  Emily Helliwell from Thurlby

 

“It made it so much easier and more enjoyable learning”

“I really enjoyed the whole experience, it made it so much easier and more enjoyable learning from some1 who is calm in every situation but also pushes you to keep going which helped me pick up driving very quickly considering I had never driven before my 1st lesson and would like to thank tom for his help”   Jake Overland from Bourne

 

“I enjoyed it and also I passed both tests first time”

“I thought the resources provided to help me (driving videos, online theory practice) were very useful. I think Big Tom is a very good driving school because I enjoyed it and also I passed both parts of my tests first time, which shows that Big Tom does make you a good driver in a short period of time.” William Platt from Peterborough

 

“Tom didn’t just teach me to pass my test, he taught me how to drive”

“Big Tom delivered exactly what was promised on the website which is to learn by driving. I had no previous driving experience at all. In the space of 7 days I went from being a beginner with limited confidence in my ability to drive, to being ready and confident to drive on my own after I passed. Tom didn’t just teach me to pass my test, he taught me how to drive. ”
Ben Rossi from Grantham

“He did not just prepare me for the test, but driving in real life”

“I’d like to thank Tom for helping me to pass my driving test first time, he did not just prepare me for the test but driving in real life, with real life situations. Tom is a very calm person and was able to help me stay calm, when I didn’t do things correctly. He never got frustrated with me and kept a calm manner. He is very professional and polite, we were able to have general conversations and have a laugh when learning how to drive. I thoroughly recommend Tom and his teaching style. Thank you Tom”   Summer Sleight from Bourne

 

“He also has an excellent sense of humour and is open to the learner’s suggestions”

“As a 63 year old who had never had a driving lesson I feel very lucky that I found Tom Ingram through the Directory. He is very patient and has a clear sense of how progress is made; he also has the ability to communicate that sense. He also has an excellent sense of humour and is open to the learner’s suggestions. All of which means that the lessons are enjoyable even for someone who still finds driving often intimidating” John Lancaster from Peterborough

 

“Makes you feel at ease”

“Learnt so much in one week, great guy and he makes you feel at ease, would definitely recommend him to other learners” Becka Skellet from Grantham

 

“Tom is an excellent instructor who gives clear instructions”

“I am very pleased with my 5 day intensive driving course.  I went from knowing hardly anything about driving to being able to drive.  Yes there’s more to learn and get used to but that is because it’s all new.  Tom is an excellent instructor who gives clear instructions and is honest with all of my abilities in the car.  I know more now and will continue with the knowledge that with each lesson I am closer to gaining my driving licence”  Elliot Flynn from Ruskington

 

“As the intensive driving course went on, my confidence grew….”

“If you are looking for a driving instructor.. look no further!!! Tom is the best there is 🙂
I did the intensive driving course with Tom. Tom is a great driving instructor. He is patient, supportive and explains things really well. As the driving course went on, my confidence grew and passing my driving test was a huge boost. Just want to say a huge thanks to Tom who encouraged me to persevere with my driving and it certainly paid off. I would highly recommend booking with him”   Haleema from Peterborough

 

“You were a calm instructor, easy to talk to and always made me feel comfortable”

“The only feedback I can really give is a positive one. You were really helpful and a calm Instructor, easy to talk to and always made me feel comfortable. You were a very understanding Instructor and were there to help every step of the way. Thank you.”     Darran Carroll from Peterborough

 

“Tom made the whole experience enjoyable”

“I felt he was a good teacher, he explained things clearly, I fully understood him, and felt supported. Tom made the whole experience enjoyable, and I would recommend him to my deaf friends.”   Gem Dixon from Peterborough (profoundly deaf)

 

“…tailors the lessons to exactly what you need…”

“I really liked the way big tom teaches, he tailors the lessons to exactly what you need.  I have 4 x 5 hour lessons at weekends and they were incredibly helpful.  Everything was explained well and I was given specific advice for each topic we covered.”  James Smart from Boston

 

“He adapts the learning techniques to you as an individual”

“My experience of learning to drive was very positive thanks to my lessons with Tom. I started out with very little time behind the wheel but was helped to feel very calm and relaxed. He adapts the learning techniques to you as an individual, ensuring you learn at your own pace. I started out with very little confidence, but thanks to Tom and his calming influence this was overcome quite quickly. Mock tests helped me prepare for the real practical test and assisted in reducing my nerves for test day. I knew what to expect so there were never any surprises. Tom also has lots of useful videos online which help with tackling more difficult techniques or situations. Overall my experience was fantastic and I would recommend anyone looking to start driving to give Tom a call!”   Georgia Galloway from Bourne

 

“Tom also allowed me to take control of what we covered each lesson, so I could practice what I thought I wasn’t good at”

“I passed my test first time in March 2011, and it wasn’t until I had been driving on my own for a few months that I really fully appreciated the extent to which learning with Tom prepared me for real life driving, for me it was the little extra things, like anticipating attitudes of drivers that I feel added the extra safety aspect to my driving. I know from friends experiences that alot of driving schools just drive the “test routes” (the common routes taken by the examiners) but this really doesn’t prepare you for driving new roads on your own – one particular highlight of my lessons was the rural drives around areas new to me as they opened my eyes to the many unexpected hazards that are on the roads! Tom also allowed me to take control of what we covered each lesson, so I could practice what I thought I wasn’t good at – he also took me to park in Queensgate, which let\’s face it is a lifelong skill for living in Peterborough! Toms lessons have a relaxed approach, and I would thoroughly recommend learning with him.   Lisa Reid from Peterborough

 

“Tom gave her confidence and was very patient”

“I would highly recommend anyone to take lessons with Tom, whether you have never driven or have experience.
Our daughter Shannon had never stepped foot behind a driving wheel, and was very nervous, that was March and by August she was test ready, Tom gave her confidence and was very patient. He is also very happy to speak to parents too as many of us have been passed a while so taking Shannon out in her own vehicle I felt confident to sit beside her. Tom also encourages students to use their own car, in fact Shannon felt that confident she took her test in her own car and passed first time.”   Mel Ronan from Bourne (Mother of pupil)

“I would like to thank Tom for taking the time to teach me to drive last week on a 30 hour intensive course. I learnt so much and Tom really made me feel at ease with something I wasn’t comfortable with to start with. I would highly recommend BIG TOM to anyone. Great teacher and a nice guy to boot. Thanks Tom”   Graeme Miles from Peterborough

“His friendly manner made me very relaxed and at ease”

“Big Tom is a great driving instructor; his friendly manner made me very relaxed and at ease during my lessons. He always arrived for my lessons on time, and he is very easy to contact via facebook, text etc. I enjoyed the lessons and he taught me to drive, rather than just pass my test. I would thoroughly recommend learning with Big Tom Driving School!”   Georgina Ivens from Peterborough

 

“He is very patient and is an excellent teacher”

“I miss having you as my driving instructor”

“Tom is everything you want in a driving instructor: calm, clear, supportive, knowledgeable and funny. He is very patient and punctual, taking a pride in his car so it’s clean. He varies the routes, so you learn about different situations and his use of anecdotes is entertaining. Thanks Big Tom – it’s great to have passed but I miss having you as my driving instructor” Katie Ankin from Peterborough

“You couldn’t ask for a better instructor than Tom, he is knowledgable, patient and makes everything so easy to understand. First time pass after 15 hours of tuition!”   Richard Lamb from Peterborough

 

“You can go many places”

“Learnt a lot in only 5 days from nothing to be able to drive on dual carriageways etc.  Accelerated my learning.  You can go many places – you are not restricted to where you can go as you are not limited to a short time.  Would have been more successful for someone with experience.  Quick pace so not useful for those who aren’t confident”  Charlotte Ward from Thurlby

 

“I would highly recommend to anyone”

“The weekend course was great for me to fit around my work commitments.  Tara and Tom kept me informed of the test promptly and professionally.  I would highly recommend to anyone” James Turner from Holbeach Drove

“Pick up and drop off were a life saver”

“Brilliant all round.  Videos were useful.  Tom adjusted the lessons to suit me.  The BIG TOM show me/tell me guide was particularly useful.  Pick up and drop off were a life saver, on time every day” Alistair Moss from Whaplode
