Testimonials

I couldn't have asked for a better driving instructor than mike he was very patient and taught me to drive in the space of 4 months and I passed first time with few minors even though I didn't believe in myself he constantly reassured me I was a good driver, his words to me if he didn't think I could pass he wouldn't put me in for my test and he was very true to his word I’m very thankful to him, this was a very big ambition of mine and I gave myself a year to pass but 4 months well even I was shocked, so again thank you so much and I would recommend any one to mike to learn to drive a very nice patient man and a brilliant teacher

I couldn't have wished for a better driving instructor. With his exceptional knowledge and impeccable patience, Mike had full confidence in me and encouraged me from start to end.

Such an easy man to talk to, he helped me with every query. I never felt confident driving but Mike was constantly reassuring me. Definitely recommend Route 66 to anybody wishing to learn to drive. I passed first time with Mike and I'm sure I'm not the only one!

For anyone who really wants to pass their driving test 1st time or who just can’t seem to pass then I highly recommend Mike Stepto. From the first lesson to the last Mike impressed me with his methodical patient and structured approach to learning to drive. There were times that I struggled in certain areas but Mike was very understanding and we worked hard together to iron out these problems. He was always punctual, and the car spotlessly clean, and if ever running late would call to let me know. When I passed my test 1st time it was one of the happiest moments of my life.

The key to being a successful safe and confident driver is with a teacher like Mike. I was quickly able to concept all aspects of driving through Mike’s calm and progressive teaching methods and found that I began to enjoy it. I passed first time due to an instructor who worked on my weak points and praised me for things I was able to master quickly. Driving comes with practice and having confidence in your teacher is the key. I found that Mike gave me the confidence I needed to become a successful driver though his friendly and determined attitude.

Mike is an excellent instructor, very patient and able to explain clearly all the rules and procedures you need to pass your driving test first time. My driving lessons were always enjoyable in a relaxed stress free atmosphere. I cannot recommend him highly enough'.

Tim Hall. Lytham St Annes.


Mike Stepto is a wonderful teacher . The day I passed my test I went out and bought my own car and felt very comfortable and confident when driving on my own for the first time. I know this was down to the way Mike taught me and the confidence he gave me when teaching me all the skills I would need to drive safely on my own. I can recommend Mike to anyone who wants to learn to drive. He was always patient and professional throughout Many thanks for all the help and support you gave me to pass my test'.

Peter Korzekwa. Blackpool


I would like to highly recommend Mike Stepto to everyone who wants to learn perfect driving in friendly and enjoable atmosphere. Mike is a wonderful teacher, very kind, patient and very professional.When I started driving lessons on the beginning I was nervous having a lot of fears and I couldn't believe in my capabilities but Mike made me a person who is very confident and competent now. Thank you Mike for your help and support.

Mike was my second instructor. The first one (from different driving school) told me I'm ready to pass and there's nothing more he can teach me – so I attended the exam very confident – and I failed. Driving with Mike was a different world. In the first three lessons he though me more than my previous instructor in all 25 lessons. It's his patience, experience and the way he explain things to his students, that made me see the driving from different perspective, he told me about things that I've not heard before. He treats every student as an individual. Mike told me that when he will be 100% sure that I can pass my driving test he will let me know and then I'll pass – and that was exactly what happened. I'm very grateful to Mike. He is an excellent driving instructor. I feel very confident on the road thanks to Mike. When I passed I recommended Mike to my brother and some time ago he passes as well

Lukas Jerszynski, Blackpool


My brother recommended Mike as a driving instructor. I wasn't sure at the beginning because my English isn't very good and I wanted to go to polish instructor. After my first lesson with Mike I clearly understood that my language isn't the barrier because he was very patient, helpful and understandable. Whenever there was a tiny language problem we used pen and paper and it was fun in a way. I'm very grateful to Mike for all his help. The day I passed was one of the happiest days of my life because, to be honest, before I've met Mike I didn't believe that I can get my driving licence with an english instructor. So to all foreign students – don't let the lack of perfect English stop you, Mike is there to help! 


Very good experienced Instructor. My English is not great but it was easy to talk to him. I felt very comfortable and no stressed.

Dariusz Urbanski


I really enjoyed having lessons with Mike. He is very friendly, patient & understanding driving instructor. Mike was my 2nd driving instructor & he is very knowlegable & experienced. I passed 1st time with very few faults. I would recommend Mike to anyone. I couldn't ask for a better instructor.

Louise Whitwell


Mike is a truly exceptional instructor, easy to talk to and ask questions when you are unsure and will help you as much as possible if you are struggling. Under his instruction i was able to pass my test first time, and he had faith in me all the way. And the cashback after my test was just an added bonus :D thank you Mike.

I would whole heartedly reccommend Mike to anyone for driving lessons. He has been a fantastic instructor. I had many lessons before starting lessons with Mike. He has been wonderful, he is an amazing teacher, very kind, calm and professional. I would highly reccommend Mike for anybody wanting to start or continue driving lessons.

Patricia Bowen


Thank you for helping me get my licence! Mike was a great instructor who was very patient. I would recommend Route66 Driving School to anyone who required driving lessons. Thanks Mike !

Natalie


Needless to say, I am pleased to pass the test. I had no prior driving experience so I knew that this would be a big challenge. I am really glad that I choose Mike as my instructor. He is co-operative, flexible and patient. I reckon it would have been very difficult for me to clear the test without his guidance. I would strongly recommend Mike to anyone who wants to learn driving. Thanks again Mike!
