Talbot School of Motoring reviews

Rob taught me to drive and I passed my test in November 2010. I found him really friendly, positive and reliable. He has a great sense of humour which he needs because he supports Man United ! I would highly recommend him to anyone thinking of learning to drive.

I was recommended to Rob Penfold through a family member, as I had been having lessons with someone else and felt I wasn’t achieving very much.

Rob treated me as an individual and made me believe in myself to get me through a driving test. Rob was very down to earth and made the lessons fun , which in turn, made me relax.

Rob taught me how to be a safe driver and overcome the things that I had originally struggled with. Rob is also very flexible with lesson times and always booked me in at times convenient to me.

I very much recommend Rob as a driving instructor to anyone that is looking to learn to drive.

I started driving lessons in june 2010 with a large driving school. After 21 hours i realised i wasn't progressing as fast as i thought i was capable of. I was given Rob's number and arranged a trial hour to see how we got on.

Rob introduced me to main roads and roundabouts during this trial hour, something i had never done before, i was always on quiet back roads. It was nice that Rob believed in me and gave me the chance to do all of this and push me in the right direction!

Rob made me feel very confident with my driving and made me feel at ease with his sense of humour, bad jokes and funny stories about past experiences. He was also very patient and never shouted or got angry with me when i got manoeuvres wrong.

I have now passed my driving test and love driving, all thanks to Rob!
