Gary took me from a nervous wreck on my first lesson to a confident, calm driver who passed the first time. OK, I wasn’t exactly calm on my test! But once I settled down and put into practice, everything Gary taught me, it went swimmingly. Gary doesn’t have a ‘one size fits all approach to teaching, he adapts his methods to suit how best you learn. Patient and zen at all times, Gary is nothing short of a miracle worker. All hail the King of Driving Instructors!


First and foremost is a huge thank you to my instructor Mr Gary Plows. When the examiner was debriefing me after the practical test, Gary was there to support me. Mixed emotions of joy tingled with tears was displayed when I was told that I had passed. Surely I passed the first time, given the dedicated and consistent tuition by my instructor, who showed me how to be safe on the road. In fact, my desire to drive started several years ago. Due to many bad experiences from all kinds of previous instructors, I was put off driving. One day I made a decision to find a good instructor. I was able to conclude on the Brockley School of Motoring as I observed for a week the learner drivers who drove on my road. I do not regret making this choice which I preceded with an email and a phone call: “please could you help me to drive?” The man assured me that he could and I promised to do my best. So I treated the lessons as a ‘project’ and a ‘partnership of instructor and learner’. Voila, the theory, hazard perceptions and practical test speak for themselves. So my experience of Gary as a driving instructor is

– fairness, by allowing the full agreed minutes on tuition
– interested in the learner’s performance
– correcting faults and motivating good skills.

I would highly recommend Brockley Driving School. Gary makes you feel comfortable and makes learning how to drive a pleasure. He also makes sure you understand what you are being taught. 10/10.
