Joe Cartwright from Brighton

joe 1I chose to take my driving lessons in Brighton with Fabio at Brighton Marina Driving Lessons and was obviously extremely pleased with my first-time pass!

I found Fabio to be a highly competent instructor on a professional level but easy-going and friendly on a personal level. This made the whole process a relaxed experience, which is precisely what you need when learning to do something that can be stressful for some people.

All aspects of driving were taught at a steady pace, gradually moving from one to the next only when I felt completely ready. Fabio’s explanations were easy to understand and made even the most complicated manoeuvres very easy to pick up. He has great knowledge of the possible test routes, which removed any chance of an unpleasant surprise on the Big Day!

Every class was well-organised and the SMS reminders on the day before each lesson were highly appreciated.

I would not hesitate in highly recommending Fabio and his excellent car to anyone wanting to learn to drive in and around Brighton.

Thanks again, Fabio, it was an excellent experience. I wish you all the best for the future!

Zak Pashen from Brighton

ZakI recently passed my test first time, thanks to the driving lessons in Brighton I had with Fabio at Brighton Marina Driving Lessons.

Fabio is an excellent driving instructor, upon first meeting him I had never been behind the wheel and was very nervous, but he put my mind at ease completely. Learning to drive is a stressful process, so I personally believe that the best quality a driving instructor can possess is to be able to contain that stress and even convert that into motivation, which Fabio has a knack for. Within a matter of months, I had gone from a shuddering slow start with little to no knowledge of driving or rules of the road, to complete autonomous driving.

Fabio also answered every query I asked in a manner that made sense to me. Each question I asked would also lead him to tell me the theory behind why, which is a crucial and necessary component in learning to drive. This is only one of the ways that the man will go above and beyond in helping his learners learn to drive.

The company is extremely flexible, competitively priced, and organised – even to the point where you’ll recieve lesson reminders via text. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to learn to drive in Brighton to get in contact.

Thanks for everything to Fabio and everyone at Brighton Marina Driving Lessons!

Brandon Cresdee from Brighton

BrandonI have to say that I was very apprehensive to begin driving and did put it off for a little while until I stumbled across Brighton Marina Driving School. I found the feedback regarding Fabio to put me more at ease and actually get me to begin to learn to drive. This was the best decision I could have made. Fabio is an amazing instructor! He is friendly, professional and adapts to your way of learning. I didn’t think I’d pass my test first time in a million years but today I did just that, and I really couldn’t have done it without Fabio. He doesn’t just teach you what you need to know to pass your test, he teaches you how to drive properly and gives you the confidence to drive independently. It’s difficult to put in to words how brilliant Fabio has been for me so I will simply say that I could not recommend anybody better to learn and share this journey with. I’m gonna miss our fun drives every week Cheers Fabio!

Charlotte Smyrk from Brighton

Charlotte SmyrkHaving looked at the various driving schools in and around Brighton, reading the positive testimonials and reviews, I decided that Brighton Marina Driving would be the one for me . Starting in February, I would say that I was a fairly nervous driver having read many a horror story online (not advisable to anyone looking to start) but was soon put at ease and reassured by Fabio. His expert knowledge of the roads, paired with his professionalism, friendliness and patience (quite a lot was needed as we tried to tackle some manoeuvres!), made for an excellent teacher. I couldn’t recommend Fabio enough!

Klaudia Zwolinska from Brighton

KlaudiaI have never believed that I will take any driving lesson, drive a car at all or even pass a test on the first atempt, but guess what? All that happened with Fabio and his driving school! My journey started last year in September. It was a long way to place where I am now with my test pass certificate. There were tears and laugh. Fabio is very professional and patient. He treats every student as an individual and finds a different way to teach them. I do recommend Fabio, because when you take your test with him, you know you are ready. So don’t think too long and book your lessons with Fabio! :)

Michael Malone from BrightonFabio is a very professional and experienced instructor , his calm cool funny and very good at his job and id highly recommended him as i have done with several of my friends . After doing my research and reading the reviews about Fabio and his company i set my sights on that’s the person i want to train me he had a waiting list but i was prepared to wait. I was bit nervous and lacking confidence when i first started but Fabio has a great way of putting you at ease, increasing your confidence and teaching you not just to pass your test, but to drive properly. As a new driver I was unsure of many things but with Fabio it was easy he made feel relaxed in car and on road, his approach to teaching is second to none. The whole process and experience was fantastic; Fabio is patient, calm and friendly . I passed first time i couldnt believe it myself and with only 2 minors , I can honestly say i could not ask for a better driving instructor. He help me with the theory test by giving me access to internet help sites which he set up. For me i had to learn to be patient not to rush or beat yourself up when making a mistakes its the only way you learn. Thank you Fabio

Luke Fenelon from Brighton

LukeCould not rate Fabio highly enough. After four years without driving, I was nervous and lacking confidence, but decided it was time to try again. He has a great way of putting you at ease, increasing your confidence and teaching you not just to pass your test, but to drive properly. The whole process and experience was fantastic; Fabio is patient, calm, friendly and a talented teacher. I’m pleased to say that after three months with Fabio, I passed first time, and can honestly say you could not ask for a better driving instructor. Thanks!

Michael Wootton from Saltdean

MichaelFabio is a very professional and experienced instructor, he is without fail the best guy I could hope to learn with, his calm cool funny and very very good at his job. As a new driver I was unsure of many things but with Fabio it was easy he made feel relaxed in car and on road, his approach to teaching is second to none.
He help me with the theory test by giving me access to internet help sites which he set up and gave me passwords to. As I came close to test the day I was unsure on roundabouts, on his day off he took me out for 3hours to get it down, he also was going on holiday and managed to get me a test before he left, he would check the test dates everyday twice to make sure I got test before he left.
I cant rate him highly enough his a top bloke, great instructor and a funny guy too.
Thanks to him I look forward to driving,
Thanks Fabio take care dude.

Jessica Williams from Brighton

Jessica 2As a nervy 43 year old, which virtually nil driving experience, I think Fabio probably had his work cut with me. I was truly anxious.I think I had an outer-body experience every time I got in the car. Can this really be me driving?? But slowly, we got there. Fabio was calm and laid back, but crucially, he didn’t indulge my anxiety. We just got on with the driving. I remember those key moments: driving out of Brighton, when I suddenly realised we were driving towards the A23 roundabout… ‘Where are we going??’ ‘Burgess Hill’. ‘You ARE joking??’ ‘No. You’ll be fine’. And I was fine. Sort of. I sweated a little, and gripped the wheel so hard it hurt, but we got there. Fabio’s commitment to the prep before my driving test was extraordinary, and I passed first time. Miraculously, I drove (alone) to Dorset last week. A transformation indeed. Thank you, Fabio. Life-changing.

Piera Anna Tomasi from Brighton

Piera-compressed(3)Fabio is a very professional and experienced instructor. He is very patient and conducts his lessons according to individual needs helping learners to overcome blocks and fears. After failing three times with two previous instructors I thought I would never pass my test but luckily I successfully passed my test with Fabio. I strongly recommend him to any one – young and old!

Martin Farley from Brighton

driving lessons brightonWhen I started lessons with Brighton Marina Driving Lessons, I was a very nervous and uncomfortable driver. Fabio allowed me to learn to drive in a way and at a pace that was suitable to me. He was calm and focused and always applied the right balance of clear instruction and constructive support. I was not the easiest student, but Fabio soon got me to the point where I enjoyed driving and actually looked forward to the lessons. By the time I took my test, I felt relaxed and confident about my driving and comfortable that I could cope in any situation on the roads. And I passed first time! Something I NEVER expected! If you want to learn not just to drive, but to enjoy it, then this would be a great choice for you.

Matt Hanson from Brighton

driving lessons brightonHighly recommended. Fabio is a consummate professional, relaying his driving expertise in an accomplished and relaxed way. After first instruction over a decade ago, and my children now growing up, I decided I needed to make a second attempt. What a difference the right instructor makes! Fabio pushes you just hard enough to increase your confidence, keep you challenged while being safe.
On my test I was highly nervous, but the professional training kicked in as soon as the assessor sat in the car, and I passed with only a few minor faults. Thanks, Fabio!

Nimrod Rankin From Brighton

driving lessons brighton After having passed my test today with Brighton Marina Driving Lessons I have a few things to say: Learning to drive with Fabio was an excellent experience. He teaches with a very relaxed and effortless demeanour which had a very positive effect on how I felt and drove. I always felt at ease while driving, even when making mistakes; because Fabio would always reassure me to take my time and drive properly. He showed me step-by-step how to complete maneuvers and every other type of driving you could possibly imagine. Learning with Fabio has taught me a lot about driving, and myself as a person. His patience and dedication to his learners is unmatched and choosing any other school, in my eyes, would be unimaginable.

Rhys Cox from Brighton

driving lessons Brighton Learning to drive was something I put off for a long time until it became a necessity to get to work. At the beginning I was apprehensive about driving as I’d never driven a car before, but my fears were quickly put at ease after giving it a try with Fabio. My skills and confidence quickly developed thanks to the instruction Fabio provided, and before I knew it I’d passed my test and started driving solo. It was a great feeling knowing I could travel anywhere without being limited by public transport. Fabio was an incredible driving instructor, and I’d highly recommend anyone thinking about learning to drive to give him a try. You’ll be glad you did!

Charlie Ford from Brighton

driving lessons brightonMy driving experience was totally stress free and laid back, there was no added pressure. Fabio covered everything I needed in order to past my test and prepared me really well, there wasnt one thing that we didn’t go over. On my test I felt confident for any scenario that could of occured and passed first time after just 9 lessons with Fabio. Another thing that was really helpful was Fabio’s reliability and flexibilty around lessons, I work out of town and finding lessons at a suitable time was a struggle but Fabio was really good and understanding about the situation.

Rich Chadwick from Brighton

richAs my third set of lessons, I can honestly say that learning with Fabio has been by far the most laid back and stress-free driving experience that I’ve tried. He’s a hugely patient and calming influence as an instructor – two traits whose importance cannot be stressed enough! I would recommend taking your lessons with Brighton Marina Driving School without question! It’s a shame that now I’ve passed I won’t get those weekly lessons!

Andrew Rowlandson from Brighton

Hove, passed first time.After failing to get my license before uni I was very rusty and slightly nervous to give it another go. Fabio mentored me and his calm demeanour throughout coached me through my bad habits and helped me gain in confidence. I’m happy that I was able to validate his confidence in me by passing first time. I definitely recommend!

Daniel Nonoo from Brighton

Brighton, Passed First TimeFabio is a great teacher. He not only teaches you the driving test, but how to drive safely in any context. His lessons are flexible so you can practice whatever you need to and really puts you at ease first time driving. Thanks Fabio!

Harry Atkinson from Brighton

harry2First time passer. After having no previous driving experience, Fabio worked hard and got me ready within 35 hours. The lessons were well planned but also flexible to whatever needed working on. Fabio is a very capable teacher who is very patient and instills confidence in the learner. He allows the learner a lot of freedom to learn a style comfortable to them but steers you in the right direction if an issue arises. I couldn’t have asked for a more friendly, experienced instructor. If you choose Fabio, you won’t be disappointed.

Charlie Toth from Brighton
