I couldn't be happier and pleased with the level of professionalism and exceptional quality lessons I received from Carol at DSW. I fully recommend DSW. I'm a working mum of 3 young children who have on-going medical issues so I hadn't managed the time to take my practical test. The expiration date of my theory test from 2 years before crept up on me and I was desperate to find someone as soon as possible. I needed someone I felt comfortable with, was 100% reliable as I had no time to waste, and could direct me on the best approach to accomplish my goal. I messaged many companies as I only had about 2 months to gain the skills and confidence to ensure I passed my practical. Carol was one of the first to message me back and didn't keep me waiting like some others. I eventually heard back from about 85% of the companies messaged, however from the very beginning, you could tell that Carol was different. She was quick to reply, personally invested and interested in helping me in any way she could, and also was very professional. She gave me a run down of a few "plans of attack" from the very begining even before I hired her. We spoke on the phone and I knew she was the person I needed to get me through this. She is a logistics queen and is one of the most organised people I have ever met. She tells you what time and day to book your test to get the optimal conditions for passing. She has about 3 back up plans for her 1st back up plan and she has reasons for everything. Her considered thoughtful methods and approach she tailors for you are only possible from her years of experience as a driving instructor and her skills aquired previously in the corporate banking world. Saying all this... Carol is also calm and relaxed making you feel so comfortable as if you are just going out with a friend. Carol is great at reading people(ie worrier, anxious, nervous, too confident, type of learner you are, etc) and knows how to bringing out strengths while helping build confidence when needed. She is also knowledgeable and trained for teaching pupils with Autism, ADD/ADHD, etc which just shows her level of commitment, care, and compassion for being the best for her students. Carol will not only help you to "pass the test" but she ensures you come out a truly safe and skilled driver who has confidently earned their right to drive. Carol's standards are of the highest so anyone she has trained as an instructor with DSW will be of exactly the same quality as she wouldn't have it any other way!

I have Autism and ADHD but I didn't want to let that stop me from learning to drive. So, I made a decision - well I did a quick Google search. 'The best driving school on Wirral'.
Best search I ever did. As that decision has meant that I can sit and write this to you now - just 3 days after passing my practical- from the incredible beauty of Northumberland. I drove 6 hours to get here. On my own.
I'm sat amongst the reeds next to a stream that flows so calmly into the blue sea. I feel as free as the birds hovering above me. That's because now I am. My mental health feels good today.

This is how we should all feel.

Let me tell you why I chose Caitlin Brewster as my amazing instructor and Driving School Wirral as the organisation I trusted in to secure my status as a free spirit.

I chose Driving School Wirral after a recommendation from a friend, I am so happy i did, a truly proffessional driving school. Derek, my instructor made me feel confident and at ease whilst driving. I would strongly recommend Derek and Driving School Wirral to anybody who is searching for first class instruction.
Thank you all (passed first time 😁)

I can’t thank Driving School Wirral enough for everything. My confidence in driving was at rock bottom after failing my test several times with a previous instructor when I decided to change to Caitlin and I can honestly say it was the best decision I could have made. Caitlin was always so supportive, patient and genuinely cares about your progress and passing your test. She is so relaxed and flexible, and always makes sure you achieve what you set out to during each lesson whilst building your confidence on the road. Her teaching style helped me to not only pass my test, but also to become a safe and confident driver. I definitely couldn’t have passed without Caitlin and owe my pass to her. I truly thought I would never pass my test and Caitlin proved me wrong. I would recommend Driving School Wirral and Caitlin in a heartbeat to anyone wanting lessons!

Just a quick thank you to Jayne Dawson for being hands down the best driving teacher I could ask for and helping me prepare for my test I passed today!!! Their driving school is brilliant and picked me up after I was really reluctant to carry on driving. Carol Hetherington’s company is great and you should definitely consider them if you want to learn to drive.

Best driving instructor I could have asked for! I was a really nervous driver before I started with Caitlin and she managed to work my confidence up to passing with no minors! Would highly recommend Caitlin, she’s lovely and has loads of patience with you in the car. Great motivator and helped me pass in a really short time.

Honestly cannot recommend DSW more. I was lucky enough to be assigned to Dereck after a bad experience with another local school. As someone who really suffers with nerves and anxiety I couldn't of asked for better. I first spoke with Carol who rang me straight away to discuss my situation in more detail and was on a lesson within 2 days with Dereck. Dereck is a fantastic teacher and I could not of done any of this without him. There really was a point I believed I would never pass a practical exam no matter what, but Dereck and DSW proved me wrong and I passed on my first attempt with DSW!

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Katy and Driving School Wirral for all their help getting me on the road with a first time pass. I done a few driving lessons years ago but didn't feel I'd learnt much and had forgotten it all anyway! Katy was so patient with me even though I just cried all the time and she had so much faith in me! I've made a friend for life and I couldn't be more grateful Even Carol keeping in touch having never met her makes you feel well looked after! Could not recommend these guys enough. Thank you.

Carol and Andy have been great driving instructors for my three lads. They all passed first time. The whole process was stress free and a real pleasure. The instructors were reliable, flexible and easy to communicate with. I highly recommend this driving school based on my experience.

When I sent out the message that I needed an instructor for an intensive learning course lasting a month I wasn't sure what sort of instructor I might get. Carol sorted a suitable test date and an incredible instructor, Derek. Lessons were structured, comprehensive and completely tailored to my individual driving weaknesses and strengths. If I needed extra time and practice I got it. Driving School Wirral have enabled me to fulfil a lifelong dream. When you can teach a disabled, full-time employed mum of a 3-year-old to drive in 1 month you're doing something very right. Well done Derek and Driving School Wirral.

During the process of learning to drive Wirral driving school were brilliant. My instructor Katy was relaxed and calm when I was possibly completely the opposite ! I had previously had a block of 10 1 hour lessons, over 5 years ago ,and had fallen out of love with it . But Katy motivated me right from the beginning to get back into it and make positive progress. Always on time and prompt with feedback at the end of each lesson. Towards the last couple of months , we discussed at the start what I would like to work on. This helped me massively as I could focus on the things I found difficult . Thanks to Katy, I now have a massive sense of freedom driving around doing my own thing . Although I didn’t pass first time, 2nd time lucky for me ...... Katy wasn’t disheartened and motivated me to stay with it and book my second test right away ! Thankfully I didn’t have to wait too long . Thanks for everything.

Had the best experience with this driving school! I never got bored on lessons as they where always testing different skills and abilities on new roads. The lessons where well structured which made the learning experience much easier. Katie was an amazing instructor and from the start she was extremely patient and always made me feel comfortable. Whenever I felt like I had done something wrong she was always positive and helped me learn from my mistakes. I was able to view my mistakes as a positive to help me become a better driver rather than dwelling on them. I couldn’t recommend this driving school more!

After previously having lessons with 3 different Driving schools and having no success in progressing I decided to try my luck with Wirral Driving school. My instructor Katy was fantastic and always helped when I was stuck and was always understanding when something went wrong so I never felt like I was under stress.
I passed first time with my theory as they use a brilliant app which is the same layout as the actual test so you can go in there with confidence. I then went on to pass my practical first time with only one minor which I am over the moon about and can only thank Katy an Driving School Wirral, and can feel confident in going out in a car on my own due to these lessons in which I never thought I would accomplish. I would highly recommend this school for anyone who wants to pass their test.

From the beginning to the end of my lessons with driving school Wirral I always enjoyed them. I never felt bored or as If they were repetitive, I was always getting the most out of my lessons by getting pushed to the best of my ability. If it wasn’t for Katie being absolutely amazing, I wouldn’t enjoy driving as much as I do! I couldn’t fault her and do not have a bad word to say as I couldn’t think of anyone I would have rather learned to drive with. Katie is kind and patient and always makes you look on the bright side rather than letting you dwell on your mistakes helping me build the confidence I now have - (and her banter is spot on). Katie was always willing to keep my family updated on my progress making sure they knew my strengths and weaknesses. As much as it’s lovely to Be able to drive independently, I’m truly going to miss my lessons with driving school Wirral and could not recommend this driving school more (especially for people less confident)! Thankyou for everything you have helped me with!

I really enjoyed learning with Driving School Wirral! Carol made starting lessons super simple and hassle-free, and got me signed up to TheoryTestPro which was a godsend, it made preparing for my theory test stress-free. I couldn't have asked for a better instructor than Katy, she made the learning process fun and easy for me, I looked forward to every lesson! I can't recommend Driving School Wirral enough.

Having had driving lessons with two other instructors, I found DSW on google and got in contact with Carol. Carol was the best instructor ever, and was so friendly!! I felt so prepared for my test (both theory and practical) and passed both first time! I’d highly recommend Carol and her school to anyone.

I enjoyed my lessons with both Carol and Jayne greatly and they made the stressful moments that come with learning something new easy to deal with. They were understanding with any issues I had and have clever and original ways of teaching the skills I needed. I couldn't be happier with Driving School Wirral, I will definitely miss Carol and Jayne and will always remember to do my observations like a meerkat!

Over the moon that I recently passed my driving test for the first time, all thanks to my excellent driving instructor Jayne Dawson. I started my lessons in October and Jayne has built my confidence over this time, given clear instructions and has helped me feel as comfortable and at ease at the wheel as possible. The method of teaching from building confidence on the road then moving on to route work and learning essential manoeuvres ensures that you are fully prepared for the driving test when the time comes around and I could not recommend this service enough.

I recommend driving with Jayne in a heartbeat, she’s the best!

She made learning to drive fun and even when it got hard she made me laugh and gave me amazing tips and advice which I will use for as long as I drive. She was always so accommodating when it came to booking lessons and her Theory Test Pro website is a work of genius. With her help and guidance I was able to pass first time. Thank you Carol.

My brother and I both learnt to drive with Carol. I passed managed to pass first time even after illness and Carol gave me the option to cancel with no charge and helped me get options if i felt too ill. Feel very confident about being on the road and driving independently. Carol worked with mum and I on a structured private practice programme, which was a great and helped and contributed a lot to my confidence on test day and about being out and about now on my own. She calmed my nerves right down before I went out on test. Totally recomend Carol, great lessons made lots of fun as it feels like you’re just in the car with a friend!

Superb tutors with patience and all lessons are instructed with a calm, informal but serious approach. Any issues or uncertainties with driving ability is smoothed out until you and the instructor are comfortable. Jayne was a pleasure to be taught by, she is clear and concise in what you need to do when driving and keeps you on your toes and in focus. Alike all things, people learn at different speeds and the practical driving exam is no different, I may not have passed the practical exam first time but failures help you learn how to react with different scenarios and passing it is proof of your road-readiness. Overall, I highly recommend this driving school and wish everyone who does for their driving test luck!

I was so nervous before I started my lessons, but Katy made me feel at ease right away, and I actually enjoyed my lessons with her. She was always so patient and I felt comfortable asking questions. It was great having an instructor that I could chat with and I couldn’t have passed my test without her, and I wouldn’t feel so confident driving now. I happily recommend DSW to all my friends.

My son George 17 recently passed his driving test 1st time. He was lucky to be taught by Carol, I contacted Carol after finding her on Facebook - we spoke and Carol promised to teach George not to just pass a test ( as many do) but to drive in a safe and courteous manner with the ability to be independent on the roads. George met Carol on his 17th birthday, it was a Sunday and her day off but she wanted to help make his birthday special. He loved her immediately and thoroughly enjoyed his 1st lesson as much as his last. Carol has been supportive in every way, from providing an APP to assist in his theory test , guiding me to insure him as a learner, providing routes for practice, accommodating his lessons when his availability was reduced due to work commitments and always being on hand to answer any queries we had. I have recommended driving school wirral to a friend whose daughter is currently learning to drive with Kate and feedback is all good. I highly recommend Carol and her team , with their hard work and commitment Wirral will be a safer place to drive and our young drivers will be safer on our roads.

Carol is an amazing driving instructor one that I would not hesitate to recommend. She taught both my boys to drive and both passed 1st time in just 8 & 12 weeks. The boys both thoroughly enjoyed their lessons with Carol, they felt at ease with her and always looked forward to their next lesson. Not only was Carol great with the boys but she was always there at the end of the phone to answer any questions I had, gave great advise and kept me informed of the boys progress. We already have Carol booked for 3yrs time for our next boy to learn 😂. Carol also has a great team of instructors one of which my nephew had and he too enjoyed his driving lessons and always looked forward to his next lesson.
