I passed my driving test not to long ago with an instructor i was referred to by a friend who goes by the name of emmanuel. Now with all the different diving instructors and people i have been in a car who have attempted to teach me how to drive emmanuel has the be the most calm and composed teacher i have come across . He is able to relax you mentally as you are behind the wheel whilst teaching you about how to operate the vehicle. Not once have i seen emmanuel raise his voice while a mistake takes place he simply tells you where you were wrong exactly and lets you get on with it until you get the hang of it . i would strongly recommend emmanuel for a new driver as his patience is remarkable , very humble and well spoken not to mention gives you quite the good laugh!
Paula Da Silva Howard was brilliant instructor. He was calm, clear and incredibly supportive every step of the way. The lessons we had always added and enlightened me in terms of getting my driving better and safer (i already had a foreign licence not accepted by British authorities) When it came to my test, i was positive and confident and passed with flying colour's. I will strongly recommend him as a instructor. Thank you for everything!
Pushpa Meghani I had a very good experience with my instructor. I passed my driving test first time and would definitely recommend Monk1 driving school.
Philip Bogucki Howard is a really good instructor. Every time i saw him there was a smile on his face and it really helped the driving environment. Very clear and helpful instructions on how to deal with all scenarios (including the use of toy cars). Not scared to tell you off for doing something wrong followed by instructions on how to correct it. There were times when dealing with difficult situations towards the end of the lesson where he would get slightly frustrated. However, he would never raise his tone and would always compose himself and myself quickly after such an event occurred. I have now passed my test. Remember hands follow eyes!
Emmanuel is very much experienced, patient and always be helpful during my lessons. I'm so grateful for his professionalism and kindness. I've passed the practical test within a short period of time.
Emmanuele - thank for all your help and patience, couldn't have done it without you! Having no driving experience at all, Emmanuele was absolutely fantastic, not just a great teacher but put me at ease with his friendly manner. He proved a true professional, who knows how to teach practical driving and explains driving techniques in a simple way so you can easily understand how to approach various road situations. I enjoyed every lesson and I was able to pass 1st time with only a few minor faults. I am grateful to have had such an amazing teacher. I would certainly recommend Monk and Emmanuele to anyone seeking high quality driving lessons.
Danny Bowles Howard is an excellent instructor - friendly, patient and full of good advice. I've been learning to drive for 17 years now (on and off), and have gone through three instructors in that time. It was going to take someone special to help me pass...Howard maybe the nicest guy I've ever met. He put me at ease immediately. He explained everything clearly and remained calm no matter how hard i tried his patience... i would recommend Howard to any learner.
Dwight was really a good instructor and I learned alot from him. Passed my test and thanks to him I can drive on the road now with no hesitations and with confidents.
I'd like to say thank you to Ramesh for helping me pass my test. He is a fantastic instructor, really professional, helpful and patient. He helped me build my confidence in my ability to pass the test. He has years of experience with in depth knowledge and explained me the rationale behind each instruction. He was recommended to me by a friend, who took lessons with him and cruised through the test as well. I highly recommend Ramesh and Monk1.
I recently passed my test and was only able to do so because Dwight was my instructor. Dwight is very experienced and it is clear by his teaching technique. He is also a good laugh and would recommend him to everyone looking to take their driving test.
I would like to thank Ramesh for helping me pass first time. I wasn't the best student at times but he put up with my antics, explained everything well and taught me in a hard but fair way so to prepare me for what comes after the test. Thank you very much to Ramesh and Monk
Lisha Halai I passed first time with my driving instructor Ramesh. Ramesh was a fantastic instructor who was extremely helpful and patient. He has taught me so much, skills which I will keep with me for life. He had so much confidence in me, even at times when I was sometimes lacking it and it was this confidence that motivated me to do my absolute best. The most helpful part for me was the monitoring and evaluations at the end of each lesson. This feedback allowed me to understand my strong points and also where I needed to improve on. The lessons were always organised and catered to my needs.
Amit Jain Last Thursday I have passed my driving test in first attempt. I am really very thankful to Ramesh ,who was my instructor. Just because of him I have cleared my driving licence. He is a great instructor,I love the way he scolded me during the lesson...His favourite dialogue was 'learn
Ramesh was a practical instructor with limitless depth of experience and knowledge which he drew on to painstakingly correct my driving errors. He always made sure to explain the rationale behind every instruction so it'll be a part of my driving after the test. As a result, I breezed through my driving test with only one driver fault. Thank you Ramesh and Monk for the good work.
Pushpa is an amazing instructor. She is so patient and organized. She taught me skills for life! Not only did she teach me how to drive. She also helped me expand my knowledge about road safety, cars etc. What made her even more special is her cheerful and happy personality whilst being encouraging at the same time. I was always looking forwards to the lessons. She helped me pass my driving test from the first attempt. Whoever has her as an instructor would be very lucky.
Jodie Buchanan I have recently passed my practical driving test with Monk in West Kensington. My instructor Howard has been amazing. There were times I wanted to give up during lessons but Howard made me feel like I could achieve anything with a positive attitude and a willingness to succeed. I have always struggled with self belief and needed a push to feel confident. I am so pleased I decided to go with Monk driving school and I highly recommend Howard as an instructor. He is patient, honest and truly helpful. I now have my full driving licence and I am over the moon.
Dwight was an excellent instructor. Very patient, helpful and knowledgeable. With his assistance, I passed my driving test. Very happy. Thankyou for everything.
Having no driving experience at all I chose Monk School of Motoring and couldn't have asked for a better instructor. Dwight was absolutely fantastic; not just a great teacher but a very nice person. I enjoyed every lesson and i was able to pass 1st time with only two minors! I am grateful to have had such a good teacher. For anyone looking for a driving school I'd highly recommend Monk!
Alban Guri It was a very good experience to be teached and also good investment getting new and advance techniques for driving safety and properly in UK by good instructor as the Howard was for me. it's a pleasure to mentioned the good approach and communication with Rebecca as well since the first day i met her. Excellent experience with very high professional staff. Thanks!!!
I ve been meaning to leave a review but one reason and the other I just haven't!
Just wanted to say that Dwight is one of the best instrctors I've had the priveledge of meeting. Not only is Dwight a methodical, conscientous instructor he manages to put you at your ease making the whole learning experience, one that is not only easy but alos enjoyable. Dwight is a consummate instructor he is a friendly, knowledgable and meticulous one too.
An obsolute to credit to Monk School of Motoring.
My very best reagrds to all at Monk and particulary Dwight.
Stavros Velissaris Dwight was excellent. He was always very professional, explained everything in detail and gave clear instructions while driving. He also gave good tips on what to look for in the exam. I managed to pass the driving test in my first try. I would definitely recommend Dwight to anyone who needs a driving instructor.
bogdana ciasar Hi,I am very happy,my instructor is very nicely and good professional,with a lot passion for job,thanks for everything!!!
Gregory Bearish I was very happy with the lessons and i passed thanks to Alan. A very good instructor as he's got experience and is very good at what he does.
Alexei Yesterday I passed the driving test with a good score (just 4 minor errors). I wish to thank Paresh for fantastic training I received from him. He was attentive, focused, demanding, but very friendly. Paresh had a hard task with me, much harder than with novices. After 35 years of driving experience, 15 in the UK and 20 abroad, I had my own habits of driving –some of them bad, but keeping me away from accidents for over 25 years, however many not acceptable for the test. It was not easy to change, but with his patience and persistence – we have made it. He is a brilliant instructor, and if all others in your school are like him – Monk in WestKen should be a success. Rebecca, I wish to thank you therefore personally for organizing all this for me and for my wife, who had passed the test earlier.
Howard has been the best instructor I could have wished for ! I can't recommend him enough ! He stayed patient and kind, even when I found it difficult, I enjoyed learning to drive and even looked forward to my lessons with him. He is punctual and was able to work around my hectic schedule which was very much appreciated!!! It's thanks to him that I was able to pass the first time ! Thanks so much Howard!! I'll definately recommend Howard and Monk to my friends!
Thanks to my instructor, Dwight, I was able to pass my test with only 3 minors. His teaching style was very good and allowed me to remember all the important rules of driving to keep me and others around me safe on the road. I am now proud to say that I am confident in my driving and have learnt the necessary skills needed to drive safely.
Hello Monk crew,
Its my honour to give Dwight my highest regards and respect for his world class teaching style during my learner driving experience.
He understands exactly what is required to pass and teaches you skills you'll remember for life. I highly recommend Dwight as an instructor, you will see progress from lesson one.
Elisabeth Broyd I could not recommend Emmanuel more - He is a wonderful person and teacher! Completely selfless in helping you along the journey and takes all the stress out of the process. I would recommend him to anyone and am very grateful for his time and endless patience!
Dwight was an excellent instructor! I honestly can't recommend him highly enough. With his help I managed to pass my test having previously failed using another driving school. He made a massive difference and once it was time to take my test I felt very confident. He is very relaxed and patient and I was delighted with the progress I made. On top of that he is a great guy and I really looked forward to our lessons because we had so much fun. Top man. Also, expect to become a sound clash aficionado after a few lessons with Dwight. I will definitely recommend monk to my friends and family.
I just passed my driving test and I am so happy. My driving instructors (Pushpa and Paresh) provided me with clear calm instruction and excellent teaching. I was extremely thoroughly prepared for the area where my test was taken. I was supported and encouraged through the whole process of taking the test which was something that I was very anxious about. Thank you.
Howard is an excellent driving instructor. My sister and twin brother both passed their tests first time having been taught by Howard so the pressure was on me! Howard made me feel confident as a driver and Because of that, I also passed my driving test first time. Thank you Howard. I will be recommending you to all my family. * I will be recommending you to all my friends (rather than family as we have all passed now!)
Howard is an exceptional driving instructor and I passed my test first time as did my sister who he taught too. He is very calm and gave me great confidence so I feel comfortable on the roads. His lessons are enjoyable and informative and I am recommending Howard to all my family and friends.
Philipp Learning to drive is undoubtedly a stressful experience, not least in Central London. Mercifully, I was in safe hands. Howard’s patience, clarity and good humour kept me sane throughout the whole process. Though I had never driven in any form before starting with Howard, his years of experience and endless reserves knowledge meant I was not just able to pass my test, but I also now feel confident about driving in general. Howard’s method of not spoon-feeding his pupils, meant I picked things up independently, undoubtedly improving my driving in the long term. Despite my university commitment resulting in long gaps between my lessons, Howard was unfailingly flexible, allowing me to make the most of my brief stints in London. All in all, I couldn’t recommend Howard and the whole team at Monk any more highly!.
Comments : Overall, an exceptional experience learning from MONK. What I found most useful was the assessment at the end of each and every lesson, and evaluating on what went well and how to improve. The instructor was very patient and always happy to answer any questions I had, and also gave constructive criticism. The mock tests were also very helpful as I approached my test date as they gave me an understanding on my weak areas. Maybe something to consider would be taking students to the area of their test site from earlier on so they have more time practicing in that area. I definitely recommend learning from this company, and it was a pleasure learning from them.
Howard helped me pass first time!!
Really enjoyed all the lessons with him, having such an easy going and yet constructive teacher has been great. Would recommend him to anyone!
I took my driving lessons with Howard from Monk.
I was a complete beginner when I first started driving with Howard. He always found the perfect balance between pushing me to be a better driver and ensuring I was never too far out of my comfort zone.
He completely prepared me and gave me the confidence to drive. He was professional and always a joy to learn under. It is because of him that I was able to pass my driving test first time.
I thoroughly recommend Howard to any new learners as well as anyone who hasn't driven for a while and wants to get back to being comfortable behind the wheel.
I would like to thank my driving instructor Ramesh for teaching me how to drive. He was very patient and calm but also gave me some constructive criticism. Not only did he help me pass first time, he gave me the confidence and tools I need to be a safe driver for life. I highly recommend Ramesh and Monk.
Excellent tutorship from Ramesh. He provided the rationale behind every single concept to me which made me not see them as mundane. I will 1000% recommend Monk to anyone who wants to pass first time, I did and I only had 3 driver faults!!! Thank you so much Ramesh
My experience with Monk was an excellent one. My instructor Ramesh taught me how to drive from no experience at all. He was a very thorough instructor, teaching me every possible scenario that could come up. He helped me to pass first time and I enjoyed my lessons with him. I would recommend Monk to all my friends and family.
Recently passed my driving test and I have to say if you want to pass you have to use Dwight. Dwight is an incredible instructor and helped build my confidence so much. If you want to pass your test, you have to use Dwight!
Ramesh was a very good instructor, always clear with his instructions and patient when it came to learning. Very nice to talk to and have a conversation with as well.
I just passed my driving test for the first time, thanks to Monk! My instructor was Paresh Patel. He customised classes to my needs. He was very patient and made sure I was test ready. He went out of his way and made sure I got last minute training on the morning of my test. I could not recommend a better instructor.
Comments : Dwight has been an excellent instructor with me, and a bit of nervous driver; he set me at my ease immediately, always a ready laugh and ready to sing along to Capital FM. The lessons weren't overly structured, although there was a focus for each one, so you learn to deal with different situations quite quickly and I gained confidence from that. Unlike the instructor I had before him from another school, Dwight teaches you to drive AND take the test, which in my experience is not always the same thing. Please pass on my utmost thanks to Dwight. He was recommended to me by my brother, and sister in law, who both passed first time with Monk, and he got me to the test and a pass first time under his tutoring.
Bahar I am very grateful to Monk school of motoring for making my dream of becoming a driver come true. Special thanks to Pushpa, who is an encouraging and supportive instructor at all time. I would never have done it without your support and dedication.Keep up the good work.
Gam Gurung Rebecca thanks, You choose me good teacher Mr Howard. He is a very good teacher. Who gets Mr Howard is a lucky student.But most follow what he teaching, it means you 100% pass.
Thanks Mr Howard.
Dwight was a fantastic driving instructor, he's very patient and gave me all the necessary tips to pass first time!
Allegra Lindblom Monk driving school made my experience of learning to drive totally enjoyable all round. The office staff were always friendly and cheerful which meant I always went into my lesson feeling positive. Howard was so patient and always made me feel confident in my own abilities even when I felt unsure and uneasy. At the same time he never 'spoon fed' me and let me do things for myself, thus my achievements felt all the more significant and my strengths and weaknesses were accurately highlighted allowing us to work on exactly the right things. Not only this but Howard always conducted the lessons with a light hearted and funny character making me feel completely comfortable and that I was always able to openly say what I was having difficulty with. I would highly recommend Monk to anyone wanting to learn to drive, and especially to those like me who were daunted by the prospect of learning in London!
Simone Volpini Jeff is a wonderful instructor. He is very patient and calm and always made me feel relaxed and confident. He explains things well and makes it easy to understand. I really enjoyed learning with him. Thank you.
Good morning, I would like to say I am very glad I done it with your office and thank you to everybody especially my instructor Pushpa because she taught me really good and she was amazing, I found it in a online thank you for every thing.
Dwight was very supportive and helpful in every lesson I had with Monk and he made me feel confident behind the wheel, he was very professional and he thought me how to overcome my fears. I wouldn't of passed my test FIRST TIME if it wasn't for Dwight. I would like to thank Dwight and I would highly recommend for people to take their lessons with him and Monk.

Jeff is the best instructor I have could ever had!
He is patient, calm, very professional, available and punctual.
He knows how he can do properly his job and nobody can be better than him! I was really lucky to have him as teacher! Monk you have a great instructor in your team, you can be very proud of that!
Talina Ellis My driving instructor was Paresh. There are really no words to put into how much of an Excellent professional patient caring instructor he is. He never made me feel nervous especially when I made mistakes, his aim was always to correct them and to get you to that point of passing your test. In the past I had previous bad experiences with two other instructors and it was enough to put you off wanting to learn to drive. But I must say Paresh is definitely one of the BEST Instructors Monk has and he is great asset to Monk and I am so appreciative of all Paresh's help! And making me PASS!!!!! Paresh really is the Best!
I recommend Monk school of driving to anyone, the staff were very helpful and accommodating. They were able to find me an instructor right away so i did not have to wait very long. My instructor Paresh, I could not have asked for anyone better, he was very patient, gave clear instruction and made it very easy to learn. I should also add he was very dedicated to helping me pass first time around with him. Previously I had several different instructors around the London area so trust me when I say he is good I have seen what's out there. So thank you Paresh for getting me through my exam and helping me pass my driving test!
Jeff was great, very patient. Helped me learn and improve in a short space of time. I passed with only a few minor faults. I felt the lessons prepared me well for the test, so much so that I found the test relatively easy (if a little stressful).
Harry enjoyed learning and passing under Jeffs guidance and has and will continuing recommending monk school to his friends
Thank you so much Monk!
My instructor Paresh was excellent!!!
Installed confidence to drive in London and passed first time!!!
Jeff was brilliant and the face that he equipped me to pass with only 2 minors in such a short time is a testament to his instruction skills - he was extremely calm which was hugely helpful to me and I will be booking him for some follow up lessons on the motorway etc when I get time!
“I cannot recommend the Dwight highly enough – what an absolutely great instructor he is and an absolutely top guy! Genuinely enjoyed my weekly 2 hours in the car with Dwight and by the end I could not have felt more prepared for the test which thankfully I passed (just in time to have a licence before I turn 30!)
I heartily recommend Monk School of Motoring to anyone looking to pass their test and especially Dwight if you’re lucky enough that he’ll take you on!
I had Paresh as a instructor, although i knew how to drive already he fixed me up with very helpful tips that helped me pass my test 1st time. Very easy going and easy to learn with allowing me to enjoy my lessons each time.
My driving instructor, Dwight, was amazing. I passed with only 3 minors which I never would have been able to do without him. We always had a great time talking about current affairs during my lessons which really put me at ease and he was always willing to stop off somewhere different from where we usually would if I needed to be somewhere!
I have been doing my lessons for a few months with Dwight. I passed thanks to you guys!!! Dwight was fantastic at helping me get to the point of passing. I felt calm all the time and he was very good at explaining things and helping me understand. Once again thank you for your help.
I yesterday passed my driving test and I would really like to thank your amazing instructor, Dwight Ellis, for helping me achieve that! I change few instructors so far and I can say that Dwight was the best one! He is really patient, has great positive attitude and great teaching style. I will definitely recommend Dwight to anybody who is planning to learn to drive!
Great service. I was lucky enough to have Howard - he was brilliant and a great instructor ! he was calm and taught me in an easy to understand manor. if you are looking for an easy to get on with instructor who really knows what he is doing and how to make you a better driver just ask for Howard
I have been learning to drive with Monk , and yesterday I've passed my driving test, all credit goes to Dwight, who was my instructor, he is very professional and understanding , I have already recommended Monk to friends and family.
My name is Tolu and I would like to say Monk have amazing driving instructors.
After starting lessons with Pushpa in March 2016, I am happy to say I have passed my driving test in July. 4 months and Pushpa was able to make me the safe driver that I am today. Her patience and determination to make me a good driver made me pass the first time round I did my driving test. Although Pushpa couldn't come with me on the day of my test due to reasons beyond her control, she was kind enough to organised another colleague of hers Howard to take over her role. I must also say Howard is indeed a good teacher who taught me a few other techniques I wasn't aware of.
To conclude, after using two driving instructors from Monk School of Motoring, I will highly recommend them to anyone that is trying to gain quality and safe driving skills for life!
My experience with Monk school was one which was brillant, as the school where very helpful from beginging to end. The school was very helpful with not only the practical side of driving but also elements of the theroy test itself. They offer advice and also any news developments regarding you, the school or your instructor that may disrupt you.
While with the school, I had the pleasure of working with a instructor named Howard. He provided me with useful and helpful tips towards my diriving from start to finisish. Howard is the type of instructor who is patient, kind and caring, but at the same time pushes you to reach your goals of becoming a diligent driver.
There where several times where I became complacent with my driving and theory test, but Howard urged me to carry on with it complete.
Even towards the end of my driving experience with the school and Howard, he offered advice of what challenges I may face in the future. If I was to recommend anyone with no driving experience like myself at the time, it would be Howard.
In all I would give Monk School and my instrotor Howard 10/10
I would like to say a very big thank you to everyone at Monk especially Pushpa, Tracey and Howard!!
I want to thank Pushpa for all her hard work to arranging the best instructor for me and working my lessons around my work hours, you have been very helpful from start to finish.
I was struggling on my Theory test which Pushpa helped me to understand more clearer and also advised me lesson will help me to also understand the Theory a lot more, she put me with an instructor called Tracey who was extremely helpful,kind and patient. I had started driving when i was younger and had stopped for a few years so i was concerned i wouldn’t remember anything however with Tracey’s calm professional help i gained back my confidence and got back to my standard i was at a few years ago very quickly. Pushpa was right, i was taking driving lessons whilst preparing for the Theory test and it helped me massively, also with the free Theory training in the office for Monk students i then passed with flying colours. Unfortunately Tracey then stopped doing driving lessons to which Pushpa contacted me advising me of this and then put me with another instructor called Howard who was also able to work around my schedule. Howard is extremely patient, calm, professional at all times, caring, frendly and was determine to help me reach my goal of getting my full licence even when i felt i wanted to give up. Howard has helped me to gain confidence in all aspects of driving and feel like i am a truly safe driver, if it wasn’t for you guys i would still not have a licence. I love the way the school keeps you informed in everything from start to finish. All my family have passed with Monk from grandparents to my sibling. I wouldn’t recommend any other driving school apart from Monk and in regards to a driving instructor if Tracey comes back i would recommend her or Howard without hesitation. You guys are truly the best!! Thank you again for everything it means the world to me! X Rebecca

My instructor Dwight was one of the best that I had. Helped to me pass first time, and was a really good teacher. I'm glad I had him as my instructor and would highly recommend him to others.
Excellent service, was eased into driving very well by my instructor.
Also progressed at a steady rate, learning manoeuvres, the rules of the road etc. thanks to the friendly help of my instructor Howard
Overall my experience with Monk was positive and thanks to them I was able to pass my test.
Having had only a few driving lessons over 30 years ago I’m sure I would have been a challenge to any driving instructor, however I recently passed my driving test at the first attempt, and this was due to my excellent driving instructor Paresh Patel. During my lessons Paresh was at all times even-tempered, calm and a reassuring presence, he was always patient even when I made silly mistakes. Best of all Paresh makes sure the student is well and truly prepared for the driving test, each aspect of the driving test is practiced multiple times so that there are no surprises during the test. Indeed the only surprise during the test was that I found it relatively easy since we had practiced everything so thoroughly. Paresh is a true professional but also friendly and easy to get along with. I would recommend Paresh to anyone taking lessons at any level of driving ability.
Hi, I've been learning to drive for the last two weeks with Dwight Ellis and i've passed my practical test today.
I have to say that he is very good teacher, always happy to explain everything and to point out your mistakes. We have successfully achieved test standard knowledge in just 20 hours of lessons!
I'm very happy with my instructor and I will recommend him to all future drivers!
Roberto I had a great time with my instructor Jeff.
He was really patient and made me feel very comfortable and in total control behind the wheel. The process was very efficient and I recommend him and, of course Monk School Of Motoring, for anyone willing to learn the right way to drive.
Diana Grigoreanu Hi there! I'm very satisfied with the lessons maked with my instructor Pushpa ! She is very good! Excellent. 10 points from me! Many thanks!
Comments : Jeff ! Top notch instructor! Highly recommended.
I passed my driving test with Howard's guidance. He was a very understanding instructor, whose teaching was clear and effective.
Karen Q Thank you, I am very overwhelmed. I’d like to say thank you to Emmanuel for his persistence, support and encouragement during the lessons. My biggest hurdle was not having faith in my ability. Emmanuel was constantly reassuring and advised that I had the knowledge but need to apply it with physicality and fluidity. His calming aura and patience makes Emmanuel one of the best instructors I have ever had, I do not know where i’d be if we hadn’t met. He is an absolute godsend and will recommend him to everyone and anyone
I would like to say thank you to Monk and my instructor Ramesh for helping me pass first time.He was very patience and gave me the confidence I needed on the roads. He was very supportive and made every lesson enjoyable.I would definitely recommend Ramesh as an instructor.
Senait Thank you for helping me pass on my first attempt! My instructor Paresh was very patient and knowledgeable, helping me drive safely and confidently. Recommended!!!
I just passed my test a few days ago and I would like to give a special thanks to my instructor Howard. Hands down, I would recommend him to anyone. He is by far one of the best people I have ever met as well as an impeccable driving instructor. He can really analyse and observe exactly where you need assistance and will craft you into a safe driver as well as an experienced one. His mental support and warm-hearted, relaxing advice will give you the confidence you have never had before and will ensure you nail that test. I really feel as if I have developed as a person as well as a driver since the day Howard became my driving instructor. Never have I felt under pressure or intimidated to drive when Howard has taught me. I can 100% guarantee that you will have fun as well as develop as a driver during lessons with Howard.
I'd like to say a massive thank you to Ramesh for helping me to pass my driving test with only one driver fault. I'd also like to mention how great, his patience and professionalism was when helping me to build up my confidence in my own ability on the road. Also a big thank you to Pushpa for helping me in my final days before my test, by giving me helpful pointers and advice. All in all, THANK YOU MONK!!
Thanks for helping me pass on my first attempt! My instructor (Charles) was very patient and knowledgeable, helping me drive safely and confidently. Recommended!!!
Howard's instruction has been fantastic for both of our sons. They both passed first time, the latest with zero minors.. Howard's instruction is thorough and he can give excellent indicators of when you are ready to take the test. He is helpful and did his best to work with us around school and sporting commitments that meant our son's schedule was at times erratic. We cannot recommend Howard highly enough. He is outstanding and we will be back in 3 years with son #3!
Want to say a big thank you to Pushpa for getting me to PASS!! our journey has been lovely and great moments I won't forget. Pushpa is a very good instructor and really makes the learning pleasant and fun, big shout out to Rebecca 2 !! they are a great team & do the best to get you to pass.. lots of Love guys from
I just wanted to say thank you to Pushpa who has not only helped me pass my driving test but has also given the confidence needed as I used to be scared, nervous, making silly mistakes when going to tests.
Pushpa is a patient, calm and very professional person. I could not have asked for a better person.
I am so happy to have passed my driving test first time and almost all the credit has to go to my instructor, Howard. He is an incredibly thorough man and patient of all my idiosyncrasies (a nervous and frustrated 30 year old) too.
When it came to the test he had prepared me so well, without me even realising it, I was able to remain calm throughout and even enjoy myself a bit.
If anyone asked me where to learn to drive I would say Monk Driving School and ask for Howard, there is no-one better. Thank you Howard, Tom.
Comments : I was very pleased with the service provided by Monk, especially Dwight, who made this an easy transtion for me and enabling me to pass my practical first time!
It has been a pleasure to meet Dwight and would recommend him to anyone I know pursuing their Driving License.Thanks for all the tutoring and wish you all the best in the future.
Just want to give a massive thank you to Dwight at monk for aiding me in obtaining my licence, very laid back style made me gain confidence quickly. really can't thank him enough, past my test 1st time with no minors, over the moon and already recommended him and monk to family and friends top instructor
Just wanted to say thanks to Monk and my instructor Howard for helping me pass my driving test.
Howard is an excellent teacher, patient and flexible and always positive.
Subject: Best Driving Instructor
I Just want to leave a comment on how good Emmanuel my driving instructor has been. I could not of done it without him. I passed my driving practical test today and am so happy.
Not only because i passed, but because throughout my lessons i have learnt a lot more about the skill and safety aspects of driving... I am so much more confident now because of Emmanuel.
Each lesson with Emmanuel was fabulous.. we always had great talks and he made me feel very comfortable.
I feel i am a way better driver now and would be considering further driving course with him.
Thank you very much Monks Driving School.
I will definitely be recommending to other people!
I highly recommend Monk1, I had Dwight as an instructor he is been great, knowing that I had only one week to pass my test. Dwight thanks for everything.
> Comments : I had Dwight (Ellis) as my instructor! not only did he get me through he has also now become a friend for life! I definitely recommend Dwight as he has all the factors that you need in an instructor and that is informative; illustrative; very structured and also funny :-).
Thank you Dwight and thank you Monk for having made Dwight my instructor!
comments:-I first started lessons in 2013 with Howard. I was nearly ready to pass, only needing a few more lessons, however I had to head back to University, cutting the lessons short. What followed was a 2 year break in lessons where each holiday I was too busy or away to continue lessons.
2 years later in 2015, I was ready to take lessons again, but was working in Coventry for the summer. After much debate, I decided to go with Howard again which meant travelling to London every weekend.
I must say, this was the best decision. Even after 2 years, Howard was delighted to teach me again. In what was an emotional rollercoaster where my theory test would expire the day after my test, both of us knew that I had to pass.
Apart from Howard's fantastic experience and methods of teaching, what really was the icing on the cake, was his ability to remain calm and his ability to understand how I was feeling, my strengths and weaknesses. He also knew exactly how the test would be carried out, even to the exact comments the examiner would say throughout. These small points really help to ease nerves and give it your best shot. Needless to say, I passed first time! With all this in mind, I wholeheartedly recommend Howard and Monk Driving School.
I throughly enjoyed my experience with the MONK driving school as the staff are very efficient and catered to my needs. My driving instructor Pushpa strategically outlined all the information with the use of visual aids to further impliment my understanding of what is expected from a new driver and how to be safe on the road in order to pass the test successfully. I passed my test! I would like to add a big thank you to my driving instructor Pushpa for her excellent methods of teaching. X
I am very grateful to Monk and especially Jeff for getting me to successfully pass my driving test. I found the service from the admin team to be extremely efficient and friendly. My instructor Jeff was understanding, patient, helpful and good humoured throughout our lessons. I may not have been the easiest pupil being a latecomer to driving and extremely nervous to start but Jeff was always happy to encourage and instruct. I had tried other companies and can honestly say that Monk was certainly the best choice.
I had a great experience with Monk - My instructor Howard was fantastic right up until the very day of the test, when he managed to keep me calm and, in the end, I found the test itself a breeze. I cannot recommend Howard highly enough. Thank you so much.
I would like to say thanks to Ramesh who is instructor at Monk School of Motoring. He is foremost Instructor in my eyes.I have passed with not a single error. He always teach me safe way to drive the Car.
After having lessons with Howard I am pleased to say I passed the first time! I received lessons of the highest standard and he really does his due diligence on teaching you the textbook way of driving that will not only pass you your test, but teach you in the best way possible, for example how to calculate manoeuvres etc which makes your life easier. He adds value by providing invaluable tips on the theory test, and
by the end I was in a position where for both the theory and the practical test the exams were easier than the lessons. I could not recommend Howard or Monk enough.
> Comments : My wife and I both had lessons with the brilliant Dwight and have now both successfully passed! He tailors every lesson to address areas of weakness, but is also so encouraging and positive. He lets you make mistakes and so we both felt we made fast progress. Thank you Monk and thank you Dwight!
I wanted to say thank you to Pushpa for your endless patience and fantastic way of teaching me to drive. Pushpa is a wonderful teacher and the whole learning to drive experience has been wonderful. I looked forward to our lessons and chats. When calling the office the staff are very professional and helpful. I couldn't have asked for a better company than Monk to learn to drive, I passed my test first time I came to Monk wanting to learn to drive and I have left with my licence and Pushpa as a friend xx
Just to say massive thanks to Dwight,for teaching me how to drive and helping me pass my test the first time.He is one of the kindest and most patient people I've ever come across.Notting was too much hassle and he never lost his patience with me even thought I could be a bit slow at learning at times.I always felt at ease and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an experienced and knowledgeable driving instructor.
> Comments : I had a fantastic experience with Monk Driving School (instructor Ramesh). As an existing foreign-licensed driver that needed to qualify for a UK license, Ramesh took me from zero to a perfect practical exam score in 10 hours of instruction. Ramesh used a perfect balance of practical instruction and teaching aids to introduce new concepts. By the time my exam came around, I was relaxed and felt completely prepared for every possibility. Ramesh took me on routes similar to those used by the examiner, and we practiced under test conditions nearly the whole time. I would absolutely recommend Ramesh and Monk Driving School to anyone and am pleased to act as a reference on their behalf.
I was nervous about learning to drive, as my experience with a previous instructor hadn't been very positive, however Ramesh put me completely at ease and I felt very comfortable driving with him.
He was a very supportive instructor and he has the patience of a saint but will tell you off when you need it too, which in my opinion is great! If you are looking for an instructor who will teach you well but also treat you with respect and have a giggle with you, look no further than this genuine gentlemen like Ramesh . Scheduling lessons was very simple as he was so flexible with his availability. Many thanks for always being positive with me . (Now I have passed my test and drive with confidence! :)
I contacted Monk1 as I needed a refresher course and wanted to take my test Asap, Ramesh was my instructor and immediately made me feel at ease and relaxed, he didn't change my driving style he just made a few pointers here and there to make myself more aware of things going on around me. Ramesh was always assured and in turn that instilled confidence in me. I took my test after only 5 lessons in total and passed without any faults!! Ramesh is a brilliant patient instructor who I can't thank enough and also a big thank you to Rebecca in the office who booked the lessons, she took the time to ring me back (even though I was slow to respond!) and once I explained I couldn't really answer my phone at work she responded everything via text message which suited me perfectly and was much appreciated.
A big thank you to everyone involved with Monk1 driving school you will surely get a lot bigger if you continue doing the great jobs you are all doing.
Comments : Thanks to Dwight I passed my driving test with zero errors. Dwight is an absolutely great instructor - extremely experienced, yet patient and positive. I highly recommend him as a driving instructor. Thank you very much!
Comments : I would just like to say thank you to Howard who is a great instructor and his calmness and professionalism made it so easy to learn and he was a pleasure to drive with. Would highly recommend him!
Comments : I just wanted to leave some feedback about my instructor, Howard.
I really appreciated his professionalism. He was patient, helpful and understanding. I would wholeheartedly recommend him!
Comments : Thank you so much Puspha and Ramesh for helping me and teaching me how to drive, they are truly amazing! been to 3 other driving schools before monk but monk were truly the best! thank you again!
Comments : Thank you Howard for being a great instructor and making learning to drive such fun. You taught both my sisters, some of our friends and I and we will continue to recommend you wholeheartedly to other friends. Jack H

Comments : Howard was a great driving instructor who doesn't just teach you how to pass the test but to drive safe for live.
Comments : I was very pleased with my time with Monk. My instructor Ramesh taught me very well and I was able to pass first time. I would highly reccomend this driving school to other learner drivers.
Thank you for all your help. I am so glad I passed. My instructors from Monk were really calm and I learnt a lot from them.

Comments : Thanks to Monk School of Motoring I recently passed my driving test! I had tried twice before with two instructors but it was Paresh who got me through. I am a dyslexic driver so not easy for me to learn but the instructor was fantastic. He was supportive all the way , taught me useful hints and tips and fully prepped me for the test day. I now feel confident on the roads and would not hesitate to recommend Monk School of Motoring to friends and family. Thank you!
> Comments : Having had lessons with both Ramesh and Pushpa, I would like to thank them both for teaching me not only to pass my driving test but also giving me the confidence I needed to become a good driver. They adapt their style to suit your learning needs and are able to quickly identify where your weak points are and help you to overcome any difficulties on the road. I would definitely recommend Monk 1 to anyone – a big thank you for helping me get my pass!
Comments : I would like to thank my Instructor Tracy for all her help I passed my Theory test first time last week I got 43/50 on the multiple choice questions and 66/75 on the hazard perception what also helped me was the free facility for me to come into the office and practice my theory test which was very helpful also all the staff members are all very nice and helpful in sorting out any queries that you may have
What also was nice was when I passed my Theory test I received a text message to congratulate me
I initially had a few lessons with the AA school of motoring but changed to monk instead because of monks excellent reputation which has been of a very high standard
Lastly I would like to thank Tracy my instructor Rebecca the receptionist and the manager Pushpa
And I would recommend monk school of motoring to family and friends
> Comments : Yesterday I passed my test! I would like to say a massive thank you to my instructor Dwight and the office team at Monk. I HIGHLY recommend Dwight as an instructor as he is very patient and explains everything in great detail. I always felt calm and relaxed in my lessons. He also knows how to make you laugh ensuring that you also have fun in your lessons! So I highly recommend choosing Monk.
> I passed my test! Thank you very much to Monk and especially to my instructor Dwight for all of his help and patience. He was very kind, reassuring and always took the time to explain everything in great detail. He also made each lesson entertaining and captivating. I highly recommend Dwight as a driving instructor and feel priviledged to have been taught by him. Thank you again.
> Comments : Having failed my test three times when I was 19, I gave up any hope of driving and settled to a live of public transport. Life goes by and before you know it your 43 with a dog and two children and desperately needing my own set of wheels. Lovely Pushpa helped me get there and after only two and half weeks of intensive learning i passed on my first attempt. Pushpa was the ideal person to teach me how to drive, endless patience, always setting the bar high, always challenging but equally encouraging and ever smiling. Thank you, Pushpa, I could not have dreamt of achieved this without you!
> Comments : I had driving lessons with Jeff and Howard and both were good teachers even though they had very different teaching techniques.
Jeff is very respectful of independent driving, he is very calm and lets you learn by your own mistakes.
Howard has very specific rules and techniques. It was helpful learning his reference points to do certain manoeuvres.
> Comments : Learning to drive with Howard was like a walk in the park. I would strongly recommend him as he is both calm and methodical. I passed my test at the first attempt with flying colours.
Feedback from Mr/Ms Phillips.
Howard was a great driving instructor who doesn't just teach you how to pass the test but to drive safe for live.
I did my lessons with Monk. I had two instructors and both were very good which caused me to pass my practical on my first attempt. They were very helpful and patient which allowed me to develop and improve very quickly. I recommend anyone looking to take driving lessons, to do so with Monk.
On Wednesday, I passed my driving test, thanks to the help of my instructor, Howard. I would just like to say how much I would recommend Howard as s driving instructor. He was very calm and patient, which Is something I needed in an instructor as I worry a lot and had no experience. He was great at explaining things to me and was constantly reassuring me that I could pass the exam, which I did. His kind and funny personality ensured that I was relaxed, and enjoyed myself during my lessons.
Having passed my driving test first time with only three minors, I find myself highly grateful towards the team at Monk for the level of service they have been able to offer me.
I'd like to thank my instructor Tracey for helping me reach the goal of attaining my license. Ramesh also proved a great asset to my learning experience for the time he was able to teach me (hope the vacation was a good one, as it was surely well deserved).
I now feel very comfortable on the road thanks to the teaching ability of these two excellent instructors. Patience and composure was always present with either one. Progression was consistent from start to finish.
I Would recommend them both and Monk without hesitation to anyone hoping to get behind the wheel with confidence.
I had tried a couple of instructors previously with bad experience so I was apprehensive but Paresh my instructor was brilliant he's very calm and collective we only had 30 days before my test date and with his guidance I'm so happy to say I passed first time with only one minor! :) I would happily recommend anyone!
A good learning experience and I highly recommend my instructor. Although it was not cheap, it was worth it. Passed 1st time!
Howard was a great instructor and couldn't have passed with anyone else
Thank you for providing me with a fantastic instructor and an outstanding service throughout. I have learnt a great deal in a short amount of time thanks to the professionalism and motivation of my instructor Jeff. My driving skills and confidence on the road have improved drastically in such a short duration of time. My mother and brother who also took lessons with Monk are equally as satisfied. I would highly recommend Monk School of Motoring to anyone.

My experience with Monk was great! Howard was an excellent instructor, patient and persistent, and gave me the knowledge I needed to feel confident on the day of the test and pass it first time. But more than that, he's given me the tools I need to be a safe driver for the rest of my life. I would definitely recommend him and Monk!
I would like to write to about my expirence with my tutor Pushpa.
When I started my lessons all I knew was to turn the car on and off with the key. I passed first time with monk driving school and my lovely instructor Pushpa. I would highly recommend to anyone.
Pushpa has very calm nature. whenever I thought I would not be able to do something she would calmly explain to me what to do and explained where I went wrong also. She also praised me when I did right thing and this helped me to boost my confidence.
I just want to say thank you so much for helping me achieve what I genuinely don't think I could have done with any other instructor. Thanks a lot for teaching me driving I highly appreciate your support.You are one in million cheers Pushpa.
Howard has been teaching both of our teenagers to drive and has done a fabulous job of getting the first one through his tests first time. Always on time and dedicated to teaching them skills for the long term, not just to pass the test, I can honestly recommend Howard (and have already to many of our friends) as an outstanding instructor.
I would like to leave a comment in regards to my instructor Paresh. I came to him with no experience in driving a car or even knowledge of the basics. Throughout my lessons Paresh has not only taught me how to drive but has built my confidence, I would recommend him to anyone. I took my first pactical test and walked away with a pass!!! I would like to say a BIG Thank You.
I would like to thank my instructor Howard for the job that he has done for me.
I am a new driver and came to Monk after a considerable number of lessons with another instructor, who was good too and taught me how to drive from scratch. I also tried and failed my first driving test attempt.
During the first few lessons, Howard assessed my driving skills and identified my weak points. His explanation is always calm, clear and to the point. During his lessons I started feeling more confident in my driving.
A couple of lessons before the test, and even in the morning just before it, Howard gave me a thorough preparation regarding all the required skills. This helped me a great deal during the test, which I passed this time. I would recommend Howard to anyone. Thank you
Comments : A very big thank you to Mr Ramesh for helping me pass the first time , he is such a kind hearted man and professional. I would like to recommend him to everyone who is desperate to pass.
I passed my driving test at my first attempt to the great credit of Howard my professional driving instructor at MONK. From the moment I contacted Monk, the team has been responsive and caring about my needs. Howard my instructor was very supportive, patient and very thorough and patient throughout my driving lessons. I can highly recommend Howard at Monk and MONK to anyone who wishes to have great service with great results.
Comments : It is annoying to have to hunt around for cost of lessons/packages only to conclude that prices are not on the website. (Sorry to disappoint you Caroline, because of various commercial reasons we are unable to post our lesson prices on the website. However, we are more than happy to discuss prices or any other requirements you may have in person or by email. Should you require further assistance please do not hesitate to contact us. (Monk)
I would just like to say a massive thank you to my instructor, Paresh! He gave me all the confidence i needed, to learn to drive and got me through my test, which i passed yesterday, 6/11/2014. I m 54 yrs old and never thought i would pass a driving test, as i had never driven a car before. Paresh has the patience of a saint! He always praised me when i was doing the right thing, which gave me such confidence when i was driving. I love his car! When i got in it, i felt comfortable, safe and very confident. I want one! Lol. I was only with Paresh for 2 months, and it was a fantastic acheivement on his part, to get me to pass in such a short time! I will definately recommend Paresh to family and friends who are looking to learn. Well done Paresh! And once again thank you soooooo... much! You have made this lady a very, very happy one!!!! Also i would like to thank Tracy at the Monk Driving School, in Fulham, for all your time and help. Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family Paresh. And to everyone at the Monk Driving School.
Thanks to you and I would like to say I'm so happy to have passed the driving test!
I must say it was one of the most difficult experience I've ever had. Having driven in the States for 26 years, it is very difficult to get used to the UK ways of driving. It is too easy to drive in the States compared to UK. Even after so many hours of driving lesson, one must acquire UK driving common sense as on the day of the exam, circumstances may change drastically.
Paresh (my instructor) was able to break my US habits and retrain my driving common sense to be UK compatible. It is not only teaching the rules of the driving that makes an instructor successful. I believe the instructor should be able to understand why the students made certain decisions (almost
read their mind) and correct their way of thinking to help them make correct judgment the next time
should the same circumstance arise. I think this is what makes Paresh a different instructor, he can correct not only our mistake but also correct the way we processed our decision. I'm glad that I can now drive in the UK with a little more confidence but will be Paresh again once I get my car.
My instructor Dwight was the best one week of lessons and I was ready will recommend Dwight I have already given his number to a friend!!!!!! Thanks for the help at such short notice guys !!!

I highly recommend Monk driving agency in particular Dwight, who was my driving instructor. I learnt how to confidently drive a car with safety and skill. He was an extremely good teacher, with a great personality and an ambition for you to succeed. This enabled me to be efficiently relaxed, knowing I could ask questions and be honest about my own progression.
Thank you so much, Pushpa, for teaching me to drive nicely
and passing my test 1st time thanks for your guidance and patience.
To everyone at Monk, who helped me and believed in me.
Thank you for all your support and confidence. Thank you very ,very ,very much.
