Testimonials from past pupils.

Steve Davenport

"Although I have already qualified to drive, I was out of practise for several years and needed to build up my confidence with a refresher course. I booked a 10 week block and was placed with Steve Davenport who was helpful, patient and very easy to get on with. His approach to the lessons meant that I needed to think proactively and he often asked me to consider why I had made certain decisions while driving. This was a really unique way of learning. I was able to iron out the basics such as positioning at junctions, how to  prepare/anticipate as well as manoeuvres. Steve's use of diagrams were particularly useful. His encouragement and guidance have helped me immeasurably, as I strive to develop into a safe and confident driver."
- Neel 28th August 2013.

"Unfortunately I have had to put learning to drive on hold as I complete the last few months of my undergraduate degree however I would just like to say that the 12 lessons I had with Steve were really good, he is an excellent teacher who is very safety conscious and patient too. I started off with no driving experience whatsoever but in the space of 12 lessons I have learnt so much! I can only hope to find a teacher as good as Steve when I move back to London in June and am very disappointed that I could not continue lessons with him. I would definitely recommend Dora's Driving School to anyone wanting to learn how to drive in Sheffield. Thank You so much!"
Kind Regards, 
- Roisin Cruise, February 2013. 

"I have thoroughly enjoyed learning to drive and I am fully aware that this is because I really enjoyed my lessons and my relationship with my instructor Steve, who is incredibly easy to get on with and clearly a very experienced driver. There wasn't a second when I felt unsure with Steve's guidance and judgement, which I count to be impressive considering how daunting it can be to be in control of such a powerful machine as a car. Steve's pass rate is testament to his skill as an instructor and I thoroughly recommend Steve. I couldn't have asked for more from an instructor!"
- Raffaele, March 2013.

"I took lessons with Steven Davenport at Dora's School of Motoring and I found him very approachable and helpful during all my lessons. I have now passed my test on the first attempt so I would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting a good instructor".
- Jess,April 2013.

Roger Powell

"I Just want to say a massive Thank you to Dora's and especially Roger. I passed my test last week on my second attempt with only 2 minors. Roger is a fantastic teacher, very calm and brilliant at keeping me calm and focused. He told me clearly on things that needed improving or where I was going wrong, but also made sure I knew where I was doing well. I would highly recommend Roger and Dora's to anyone. Many thanks again for my new-found freedom!!"
-Marie Barnett, 11th February 2014

I'd like to say a massive thank you to Roger for his support, encouragement and patience in teaching me to drive. He has been a fantastic teacher, clearly explaining what was needed and remaining calm. It took me a while to build up the confidence to drive so I'm chuffed to have passed first time. I couldn't have done it without Roger".
-Mark Roberts,6th September 2013

"I would recommend Dora's and in particular, Roger ,to anyone thinking of learning to drive. Roger was always calm,even when faced with my panic trying to avoid squirrels in the road, and he has a natural ability to explain things,even three times over when needed....  Thanks Roger. I passed first time".
-Helen, April 2013

Steve Douglas

"Hello. I would just like to leave a quick email to thank you for everything. Under the guidance of Steve Douglas, I  passed my test this morning. I cannot thank him enough for his patience and support throughout. I hit a few obstacles along the way but Steve kept me motivated and helped me get the result!
I will definitely recommend you and thank you once again. I am over the moon"
- Stacey Brook, 2013

Helen Lang

"Thank you so much for teaching me how to drive. You have been fantastic and I've enjoyed learning with you. I will definitely recommend you to anyone who wants to learn,thanks".
