Review from my husband, Miklos, who passed his test on Friday:
,, Learning with Truck school Swindon with Paul has been a great experience. He is very professional and offers a very high level of training. Paul is very knowledgeable, making sure all areas are covered in the lessons. He made sure learning was an enjoyable experience, allowing me to relax, even in a serious environment like this. After the lessons, I felt confident in my ability to take the test, passing with only 1 fault!
Many thanks Paul! ,,

Just spent the week with Paul training for my C+E, and with his excellent training came away with a pass and less minors than when I took my class C. I cannot recommend him more, very professional, very knowledgeable and great value. Why anyone would want to spend extra money on fuel travelling to other schools and the training, when you have such an excellent local company.
Paul quickly helps to identify where your weaknesses are and concentrates the training to fix them. Paul is very flexible, if you feel there is a junction or manoeuvre your are not confident with, he will happily allow you to concentrate on them. Paul will happily video any junction or manoeuvre you are not happy with and send you the footage, and also send you videos from previous students should you wish to have them, definitely worth a look in the evening throughout your training.
Paul has been very helpful from the initial booking right through the training, and also offered advice should I wish to call following the test.
The whole week has been professional but also relaxed and fun, with plenty of opportunities to have a coffee or a break should you wish to.
Had a great week with a great result, thanks again Paul top man.
Just about sleeping properly now my caffeine intake has lowered again, got a few videos I can watch that may send me off to sleep 😉

After what seemed like way too much research into where I was going to learn I decided to pop down for an assessment drive with Paul at Truck School Swindon. After five minutes I'd made my mind up that I was going to learn here. Paul was a veritable font of knowledge, and his behaviour and manner of teaching struck that perfect balance between keeping me relaxed, and yet keeping me eager to learn and drive better. Throughout my training I never once felt stressed, but at the same time he rarely lets the pressure off you to constantly become a better driver. Occasional lapses were always spotted by his eagle-eye, even when he's not looking at you (I reckon he's a sodding Jedi), he just knows that you've not done something how it should be done. In four days I had gone from being confident in the truck on Monday morning, to everything being almost second nature. My one slight worry was reversing, but it turns out to be remarkably easy. Paul picked up on that slight worry, and due to this we spent a good hour making the reversing practice area smaller and smaller. To the point where I was putting the truck millimeter perfect through the tiniest reversing set-up imaginable (discovering what you can do as a driver, and what a truck is capable of whilst having a laugh was a fantastic learning experience).
It also helped that I was learning with another very capable driver, who like me relished the whole week of continually learning and becoming a better and safer driver. My whole experience was excellent. My test was not a worry to me at all after spending four days learning with Paul.
One thing to keep in mind here is that I'm from South Leeds, which makes it very difficult for me to say anything at all is good. So when I say Paul at Truck School Swindon is a truly outstanding instructor... What I really mean is, he's above excellent. The quality of training comes from the instructor, not how shiny the truck is, or how well ironed a logo-emblazoned polo shirt is. If you're thinking of training here, do not hesitate.
