Learning to drive for Older Drivers

The following feedback is from BIG TOM customers who have, how shall we say it tactfully, more experience of life?  The Department for Transport publish on an annual basis the age groups of candidates taking the driving test.  The latest figures* indicate that over half a million tests took place for 25-45 year olds; 517,733 to be precise.  BIG TOM has plenty of experience in helping more mature pupils learn to drive.  Look at what our customers have said about the service that they received:


“As an older learner and parent, I felt it suited my needs more to do an intensive driving course.  After reading up on them, BIG TOM Driving School was the best choice for me.  Enjoyable, relaxed, friendly experience.  Very good teacher!”  Zoe Parry from Bourne

“I found the BIG TOM 5 day intensive course a huge help very flexible and happy to fit in and around a hectic work schedule, unlike most driving instructors who aren’t as willing to accommodate.The week itself was really insightful and allowed me to build my confidence, ability and knowledge to the point where by I not only passed my test but feel able to drive in any situation. I would happily recommend BIG TOM to absolutely everyone, massive thanks it was great.”  Nick Dobie from Oakham

“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 am pleased that I passed my driving test with the help of Chris Jubb (Approved BIG TOM Driving Instructor) today. Chris showed me excellent tips which I would not have known myself and these, along with his good manner and patience, helped me immensely. 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
