Just some of our many recommendations... 

Donna March 2011:
"I passed my driving test with Roger yesterday morning and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank your School and in particular Roger for the help, guidance and support that I've received whilst having lessons with your school. I have found Roger to be patient, accommodating and particularly pleasant throughout and believe that his skills as a teacher in identifying my faults has played a crucial part in helping me identify, understand the rectify them with relative ease and comfort. He managed to find a way to teach me without overloading me with information whilst insuring that I mastered the skills that are necessary to get my full licence. I will be recommending him as and when the opportunity arise."

Eve April 2011:
"I first contacted Dora after my sister had learnt to drive with her a few years ago. I'd just like to thank Dora for her fantastic tuition which helped me and my sister to pass our driving tests first time. Lessons were well structured and full of encouragement leaving me feeling well prepared as I approached my test. She is a sensitive, accommodating and knowledgeable instructor and I would not hesitate in recommending her. Thank you! Thank you again for all your help you've been brilliant."

Sophie January 2012:
"I'm delighted to have passed first time round and put my success down to Dora and her superb tuition.Without a patient, reliable and friendly tutor I couldn't have done it! I 100% recommend this driving school"

Jacqueline March 2011:
"When I called and emailed Dora’s SOM initially my queries were answered and I was put in touch with Roger . He also provided encouragement and praise and told me when I was doing things right which was essential for my confidence to grow. He always gave me space to ask questions and never made me feel like I was asking a stupid question or that I was inconveniencing him. He would explain things clearly and answer any questions I had in an easy-to-understand way. I liked the way he would draw and write on a notepad to help me visualise what I was doing and I liked his use of small toy cars as this helped me understand how and where the car was moving when I did certain things, it definitely helped me when he was explaining my manoeuvres! He was always friendly and professional and I enjoyed getting to know him and chatting to him over the year and a half I had lessons with him. He was always flexible and helpful when it came to booking my lessons and would fit me in when I wanted him to if at all possible. He always apologised if he was late and would make up the time so that my lesson didn’t run short because of it. He would also make time at the end of a lesson to recap over how the lesson had gone, if there was anything I needed to practice and answer any questions I had. He was kind and sensitive when and helped me to improve in the areas I needed to work on as well as building up my confidence and helping me overcome my terrible nerves. Overall, I was very happy with him and I couldn’t have asked for a better instructor."uickly so I was pleased with the customer service. As for Roger, he is a fantastic driving instructor. He was always patient with me and offered kind, constructive criticism to help me improve."

Lubna 2012:
"I would like to really thank Dora Shinn for helping me pass my driving test yesterday with only 3 minors! She has bundles of patience and will bring your level of driving beyond the required standard so that you pass comfortably. She is very professional, is a very patient and friendly instructor and one of the nicest people I've ever met. I can't recommend her enough, especially if, like me, you're a nervous driver. She is so supportive and has so much positivity, and makes you feel positive too. I know that no one else could have put up with me the way she did. Thank you so much. I appreciate everything you have taught me, and the fact that you never let me give up Thank you for all the encouragement . Today im so happy that I have passed! Her rate of passes are really high and i would highly recommend her and Dora's school of motoring to anybody."

Vikki Jan 2012:
"Dora has been very patient, encouraging and I have thoroughly enjoyed my lessons and would have no problems in recommending her. She ensures that you are comfortable driving in all situations and remains very calm. Having passed my practical test, I plan to continue lessons with Dora in the 'Pass Plus"

TBC January 2012:
"I cannot praise Steve Davenport highly enough for his experience and patience. After having a bad intensive course experience which knocked my confidence, he reinstated my belief, did away with several bad habits and got me test ready within months. I passed first time."

Natalie March 2012:
"i'm just wanting to say a big thanks to the company as i passed my test today. I highly recommend doras as i was so impressed with how i was tought and enjoyed the whole experience. My driving instructor was steve and he was brilliant, he helped me so much throughout learning to drive and i can not thank him enough for helping me to pass. Steve has taught me and my brother and will continue to teach my friends and other family members as he will be extremely recommended by myself."

Melanie March 2012:
"With the instructions of my patient teacher Roger, I learned step by step to use a manual gearbox and to drive like the Brits. My teacher adapted to my needs and speed of learning. Thank you Roger!"

Thomasyn June 2012:

Dora really is an excellent instructor. I booked a 10 hour block of lessons with her for £210, and only 2-3 lessons in, she already taught me twice as much as my previous instructor had in 5. She's very safety conscious and astute, but also friendly, calm and never puts too much pressure on me as a learner. She frequently asks if I have any questions regarding what we've just done, and is always happy to give feedback and return to points I'm less confident on. She also has a number of theory materials to help aid understanding of things like hazard perception and planning manoeuvres. As a 21 year old female student, I've been very happy learning with Dora and would recommend her to anyone.

Learning to drive was a scary prospect, but learning with Dora at Dora's driving school was the best choice I made when it came to driving! Always helpful and kind Dora was an excellent instructor who taught me not only how to pass my test but how to drive properly for the rest of my life! Dora gave me confidence,drive and knowledge about driving and was always flexible when it came to booking my lessons and always did her best to fit in with my timetable! I would recommend Dora's driving school to anyone wanting to learn to drive as they are best driving school in sheffield.

"Andy, 10th July 2012
I passed first time with Roger's instruction after waiting 42 years to pluck up the courage to learn driving. I went with Dora's on the recommendation of my wife, who also passed first time a few years back. I have done all sorts of training over the years and so I am confident in my view that Roger's tuition was excellent and very effective. I have to give them my highest recommendation as a result - not least because there appears to be a few poor driving schools out there at the moment.
