I will recommend everyone to Gareth. After he gave me not only the skill to drive correctly ensured I had the confidence to pass my test 1st time with him. Do not hesitate to learn with him. He was always professional and prompt on appointments. The car was a bonus, what a lovely car to drive. My Wife is next...

I did a fast pass course which was a duration of 35 hours in 5 weeks and passed 1st time with just 4 minor faults. The training was of a very high standard and the lessons were always professionally conducted. I am now looking to do the pass plus course which only costs £20 through Gareth. Thanks Gareth for all your help and patience to get me through the test. if anyone is looking to learn contact Gareth.
Hannah Vowles - Abertillery  24/08/2011

Before I started with Gareth at flying colours I had a bad experience with my previous driving school and was not being developed or spoken to nicely!! But I was so very pleased I found myself Flying Colours. Gareth is a lovely Instructor who helped me through some difficulties. He is extremely calm and relaxed and explains the process in detail and runs over everything clearly. Without his excellent training I would not have passed my test. Thank you ever so much for all your help.
