I have no hesitation in highly recommending Sue & Simon at Sue's Driving School. Unfortunately, after a bad experience with another training school, I approached Sue and was impressed with her professional approach. I have realised since that my original training was not good enough and did not prepare me properly for the test. Thank goodness Sue was able to use her extensive experience and professionalism to correct the bad training that I had experienced previously in order to achieve my pass

Well what can I say? Sue & Simon thank you so much for getting me through not only my practical driving test (D1Minibus) but also all 3 theory tests, plus Module 4! All passed 1st time! It was beyond my wildest dreams that I could achieve this so quickly - it would never have happened without your patience and amazing teaching skills. You have now whetted my appetite to have a go at the D category - I’ll be back! Highly recommended!

five stars is not enough for this lovely couple. They were a fantastic help and went out of their way to help me get through something I thought I could never do!!! Without a doubt the best company and their combined experience shines through in the way that they teach you. By the end you feel like family and they never give up on you. Hello to a new career after passing my Class 2 today !! :)Will be using them for class 1 !!Bobby HortonNow have passed my class 1 FIRST TIME!!! Sue & Simon really are the king and queen of HGV schooling and make every step of the way enjoyable . I have never reversed a trailer before and with only a few days training I knocked it on the head first time . You will only ever pay for the training you need and they do exactly what it says on the tin! Brilliant from start to finish . Take dog treats for her doggies as they also help with training 🙂 .

I'd like to thank Mrs Sue and Mr Simon for helping me pass my D1 driving exam. They are the best instructors I have been so far. They made driving in a clear and simple way so you learn fast.

Thank you Sue and Simon! Not only did you provide an excellent service, you made me feel completely as ease and have given me so much confidence. It can be pretty daunting towing a horsebox trailer for the first time when you have been driving for over 25 years!. Now I feel like i can embrace anything! Thank you both for your continous support. You are absolute stars and I'm quite sure what we would of done without you!

I have recently passed my class 2 with Sue and Simon and have nothing but praise for them and their teaching. I was very nervous to start with but the 1 on 1 training was exceptional and put me at easy very quickly. What I found good was they assessed my driving and then worked out a lesson plan based around my work patterns instead of me having to book a week off work like with other companies. I look forward to coming back soon to do my class 1 with you.

I found everyone at Sue's Driving school increadably helpful and the one to one training helped me correct 15years of bad habits very quickly. Look no further if you want a driving school with a personal approach. I will be using them again in the future.

Highly recommend Sue's Driving school... I spent many hours researching online and making phone calls to various HGV training providers in the south before deciding to go with Sue's Driving school. The tuition could not have been better and I have passed C and C+E! -clearly a fantastic choice! Thanks again.

Today, I have passed my category C (first time). Sue and Simon are fantastic instructors and I would recommend them to anyone who is looking to get training. They helped my bad habits, confidence and all round driving. They helped me pass all my theory + CPC which i passed everything first time. Do not look anywhere else for training. I will certainly be doing my C+E here. Thank you both for all your support. You won't find better instructors. Highly recommend.

Choosing a Class 1 instructor can be tricky and daunting. It’s an expensive process so you don’t want to get it wrong. I AM DELIGHTED I CHOSE SUE. I was put off by the scale and ‘hard sell’ of some of the larger outfits. Also I didn’t want an off-the-peg course as I had arranged my own medical, and theory tests. Sue and Simon are so relaxed and friendly, they really put you at your ease. They are calm and encouraging instructors who offer personal, one-to-one tuition, based on what YOU need. Sue’s assessment was bang on. I did three days driving tuition, including my CPC test, and I enjoyed every minute of it! I don’t think I could have passed my practical test with less training, but I didn’t end up paying for more than I needed. Short spaces between my tuition days gave me time to go out and practice on my own so I was well prepared for the test. I welcomed being reminded of my bad habits (mirrors!) and enjoyed Sue’s teaching style. The day before my test, I drove with Simon, Sue’s husband. This was also really useful in developing my confidence and clarity of thought for my test. I heartily recommend Sue’s Driving School!

Sue provided me with support and belief to pass first time. she even filled in my new license form. I made the best decision by going with sue and a big thank you for helping me pass. Cant wait to get started on my class 1 course.

Cannot recommend Sue’s Driving School enough! Really lovely couple with a fantastic set up. I did my B + E to enable me to travel my horse to competitions and events. The car and trailer are a lovely combination to drive, Sue’ knowledge and professionalism are first class. I suffer hugely with nerves, but Sue gave me the ability and confidence to pass. I had failed a test with another instructor before I contacted Sue and wish I had found her first. Top class driving school, don’t look any further!!

I cannot rate this company highly enough, they were so friendly and helpful and made the whole experience far more enjoyable than I was expecting. Sue is a fantastic teacher with so much experience I felt at ease the minute I got behind the wheel. I cannot thank you enough for all your help and advice getting me and my trailer on the road. If you need any form of driving tuition you will not go wrong choosing Sue's Driving School.

After years of procrastinating, I finally got off my back-side and actually went for my LGV licence, it was a simple decision do my training with Sue and Simon, as they made me feel very welcome during our first meeting and I left knowing that I would receive proper 1 on 1 training from them. I looked at other training companies but none gave me the personal service I received from Sue and Simon.With their expert instruction and guidance I have today passed my CPC case studies test, my CPC Module 4 and my practical driving test all in one day. If you are serious about getting this qualification I cannot recommend Sue and Simon enough.

Having researched all of the HGV Training facilities in the Wiltshire area I finally decided to go with Sue's Driving School and I have to say I am confident that I made the right choice !I can't emphasise enough the value of having genuine 1 to 1 instruction from Sue and Simon and the wealth of experience they have between them. The instruction was focused entirely on me, not having to share my time and the cab with other students so progress and my confidence advanced quickly. Just 3 driving sessions and then a 1st time pass on my Class 2 . I have already booked a couple of sessions in the Class 1 and have my test date booked !This is no sausage factory.....it's quality not quantity that counts and this is 1st class training with people that you will regard as friends by the time your done 🙂

I was very nervous about doing my cat C but needed to in order to be able to drive my horses! Sue and Simon gave me all the confidence needed to not only pass my test, but drive my own lorry by myself afterwards. They organise the training to fit around you, and to make sure you have enough time to process what you have learned, rather than cramming it in to an intensive course. The one on one teaching style is brilliant, it allows you to get the most out of your day’s training as well as allowing them to tailor the training around your individual needs. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to do their license, I enjoyed my training so much that I went straight back to do my b+e, which I also passed today.

Absolutely fantastic training from start to finish! I never thought I would have the confidence to do my Cat C licence, Sue and Simon were very professional and fabulous throughout, they gave me the knowledge and confidence I needed and I PASSED my test first time on Friday! I would really like to thank you both so much, I couldn’t have done it without you!

Such a wonderful, helpful couple, all aspects of training covered professionally and thoroughly, from start at novice stage to now passing my class 2 today :). I owe Simon & Sue a great gratitude in how they have helped & trained me. I highly recommend them both, also the added joy of good coffee and to top it off meeting Rupert & Teddy. Highly recommended.Thank you guys, looking forward to my next stage.

Recently passed my cat C with Sue & Simon, from starting as a complete novice and I passed 1st time with 3 minors. They were very accommodating, and I have now booked my C+E training with them too. Would recommend to anyone.

I recently took the Cat C and CPC tests with Sue and Simon and passed both on the first try. Sue and Simon teaching is excellent and the one on one sessions allow them to focus on your exact needs for efficient and speedy learning. This result in a much higher likelihood of passing your test on your first attempt. They were extremely helpful, not only with the teaching but also with regards to the application process. I strongly recommend them.

Friendly but professional service. Sue and Simon were great from start to finish. I passed my class 1 and 2, also my nervous girlfriend passed her class 2 after previously failing 3 times with another company sue gave her the confidence and skills to pass. We both passed our CPC as you can take the test at their house. I would 100% recomemd Sues Driving School to anyone! Thank you for being so welcoming and training us both. Brad and Georgie

Recently passed my CAT C with sue, I had 2 days training including test and passed with a clean sheet... no driving faults! If it wasn't for Sue's expert tuition I would have called it a fluke! Both Sue and Simon are very welcoming, very professional and you leave with new friends!...if you need any licence look no further! EXCELLENT!!! Thanks again.

Recently passed my cat C with Sue and Simon to which I have already left a review which can be found further down.I have since passed my C+E with Sue and Simon and I must say, I really cannot recommend them enough. I urge anyone who is looking to progress on to their C or C+E to go with Sue and Simon. You are guaranteed 1 to 1 training in such a lovely and friendly atomosphere. Sues vehicles are second to none and what makes it even better they are all Scanias! If you're looking to get your licenses quickly and learn from the best instructors then look no further than Sues Driving School. It's something I've wanted for a long time and never actually thought I'd manage to do it, but all in all I managed to get both my C and C+E in a duration of 5 days spread over 1 and a half months.All the best to you Sue as Simon and many thanks for the great training and advice.

Recently completed my cat c with Sue and Simon. Both were absolutely brilliant instructors and teach you everything you need to know to pass. I'd definitely recommend them to anyone who wants to get their licence.

Taking my Cat C with Sue and Simon has been an absolute pleasure. They are always welcoming and friendly. Sue will first take you out in your own car assessing your driving ability, you will then go home with a list of things to improve or learn, i.e. Swindon, get to know it!! Next step was then getting into the lorry, I have never driven a large vehicle before, therefore this was daunting! But with great one to one teaching, coaching, and advice from Sue and Simon this soon disappeared and I grew in confidence. Sue is also always more than happy for you to ring her with any doubts you may have when learning Swindon and surrounding areas. Having passed today I can now embark on my career as a paramedic, thank you!! I would highly recommend Sue’s driving school with quality experienced teaching and patience. Picking Sue’s driving school you know that you will receive top friendly one to one teaching who will support you throughout. Thanks again Sue. Craig.

Learning to drive the 18T truck with Sue has been an absolute pleasure. Right from the start Sue and Simon welcomed me into their home. Thank you guys. First of all Sue will assess your current driving ability and tailor your training accordingly as everyone has different needs. I never felt rushed or out of my depth and Sue was always there gently coaching me through each step. I’m even a much better car driver now after passing my MOD 4 and CAT C (18T) test first time on the 18th May 2017. Now I will begin training for my CAT C+E.I highly recommend Sue’s driving school and know that you will get first class friendly tuition should you choose to learn with Sue and Simon.Thanks again Sue.John.

LOOK NO FURTHER THAN SUE'S DRIVING SCHOOL!What can i say! Sue has been amazing, will definitely be taking my CAT 1 very soon.Sue is a wonderful coach and support, I managed to pass my CAT 2 with only 3 lessons and passed with a clear score, no minors! Sue Diving School is very trustworthy with honest training and I will always recommend to anyone ever seeking to take he HGV or LGV licenses. Thank you so much for your commitment to me.

I have just passed both my HGV tests with sues driving school, done them both within five days and I can thank Sue & Simon for this. Training is done slightly differently to other schools but it works really well all the training given was centred around my ability and training needs rather than just throwing you in for a week and test at the end regardless of whether your ready or not. Few weeks after my C + E test sue still makes contact to see how I am getting on and giving me contacts for companies that are looking for staff a very personal approach, I think its safe to say that when you arrive your strangers but at the end your good friends!!! can highly recommend sues driving school.

As a driving instructor myself, I had very high expectations of the training I expected when choosing to do my car+trailer (B+E) test. Sue's Driving School managed to exceed my expectations and I will certainly be going back to do my category C and C+E in the near future. Look no further if you want the best quality training with friendly trainers.

Reviews by recently qualified drivers

Luke Bledsiloe: Sue managed to fit training in around my busy workshop schedule. Made life easy for me, as I did not have to turn work down. First class tuition, I passed first time.

After a bad experience with another company and feeling a failure I had 3 days training in Coach with Sue and passed test and Mod 4 1st time. Brilliant training and great support. Paul Adye

Phil Henstridge: I had a deadline to pass my Cat C test to keep my job. Sue managed to fit training in. Excellent tuition, I passed first time and kept my job.

Darren Smith after being the first person to pass in our newly converted Scania. And here are his comments on the training. Sue and Simon are extremely friendly and welcoming people. While training they are both very patient and give you great feedback on things you can work on. Unlike other Cat C training companies Sue offers a great training plan which fitted perfectly around my work and childcare needs. With Sue and Simon’s great training I managed to pass my CPC demonstration and Cat C first time. Definitely going back to Sue for my C + E

Paul Hope: I passed my Mod 4 CPC, Cat C, and C+E first time with Sue and Simon, all in 3 months. Very accommodating and patient. More expensive than intensive courses, but 1 to 1 training and availability to suit me, as well as a 97% pass rate all more than justify the extra cost. Will definitely recommend to anyone no matter their experience.

Richard Hillman: After having lessons with another company and failed, I went with Sue and passed my HGV test’s first time. One to one tuition really works as I got what I needed and felt confident when taking the tests again. Thank you for your excellent tuition.

Jonathon Pinbury Equine: Sue managed to fit my training round my busy horse dentistry. I passed first time. Thank you.

Beccy Scammell: I passed C and Mod 4 first time with Sue and Simon. Fantastic flexible training, Common sense approach.

Simon Petchey aged 70: I passed C with Sue and Simon. I enjoyed my training so much I did my C+E as well. Fantastic trainers, very knowledgeable, patient and friendly. Highly recommended.

Sean Phealan: I passed C+E first time with Sue. Fantastic fun training, Sue is very knowledgeable. Really enjoyed it.

Ollie Thompson: Fantastic training – Sue and Simon are really supportive and helpful through all stages of licence acquisition.
