Krzysztof: ”I passed first time with only few minors. Ray is a great instructor and I highly recommended him for anyone. He is friendly and professional instructor who teaches how to drive safely, efficiently and with good road manners. He made lessons enjoyable and I had a really good time. I would like to thank him for flexibility and understanding; for arranging lessons even out of his normal working hours when I needed it; for all the support, encouragement and help to pass the test with confidence. Ray is not only an excellent instructor but a good friend too! Thanks Ray ”

Justin Z: ”Passed first time with Ray at uxbridge, very calm and reassuring instructor, very thorough in his observations allowing for a good debrief to improve any problems which occur whilst driving ”

Carlos Vandersi: ”I passed 1st time thanks to RayN today (07Jan14). He is an excellent instructor and could not recommend him enough! I am from South America so used to driving on the right, however with Ray's guidance and professional help I am happy to say I am a safe UK driver now. I can fully recommend him to any and all foreign drivers: he will make your transition seamless as well as polish and improve your driving skills. He will quickly appreciate your experience and focus on what you need to be a good and safe driver in the UK. Thank you Ray, wish you all the best!! ”

Marsha Hutchinson: ”I've just passed my driving test at Uxbridge 1st time with Ray's help and guidance. He is an amazing instructor, extremely patient, understanding and doesn't patronise in any way shape or form. His teaching style is very relaxed and at the same time comprehensive as he points out what you're strong at and the little ways you can improve on other aspects of your driving. I have already recommended him to my other friends because he is well worth all these other testimonials. Listen to Ray and you won't go wrong. ”

Osan A: ”Mr Ray is a brilliant instructor. Mr Ray was determined in helping me to pass and he is very patient and knowledgeable. Thank you very much Mr Ray, I owe it to you. ”

Pallavi: ”I had another instructor before I met Ray and was not at all happy with the way he taught me. So I decided to choose another instructor and am very glad that I chose Ray. The most important thing Ray taught me was that "Why I do, what I do". He tried to instil in my mind the best driving practises, sometimes by nagging continuously to overcome my old wrong habits. Sometimes I really felt that it's too much of nagging, but believe me, I could not have been better driver without his nagging. Another good thing is, before start of every lesson, he would explain me all the mistakes I had done in my previous lesson and how I can improve those. And towards the end of the lesson, he would make it a point to tell me what I did RIGHT, which made me feel that I learnt something and it helped me boost my confidence! I am happy to recommend him to anyone who wants to be a better driver and be safe out there on the road. Thank you Ray! ”

Rajinder Singh: ”HI, I just pass my test today without any fault. I got clean sheet without any minor or major fault. my driving instructors was RAYN. He is a brilliant instructor and whatever he taught me through five lessons i kept in my mind and I used it today and I pass my test. I suggest Rayn is the best instructor..... thanks Rayn ”

Preeti Madhukar: ”I had driving classes from different instructors but Ray is an exceptionally good instructor. He teaches ABC of driving with logic and real time examples. He is calm and composed while giving instructions to a learner. I enjoyed driving classes with him. He always gave me extra bit in every class and was also very flexible. I am very much pleased with his lessons. I am happy to recommend him to anyone who wants to learn better driving. My Special thanks and regards to Ray. ”

Agnieszka Mizycka Guru : ”I am so happy I chose Ray as my 1st instructor. It took me about 3 months to learn how to drive from scratch and I passed in the first attempt. All thanks to Ray's professional approach, lots of patience and humour. I wouldn't have chosen any other instructor! Thank you Ray! ”

Franck Claudel: ”I chose Ray based on the video and the reviews, and I'm really glad I did. Ray is a great instructor who took at heart to help me pass...and I passed! A few years back I attempted to pass the test (different school) but failed and eventually decided to give up, so I had some significant anxiety and apprehension at going back through re-learning it all... Ray is friendly, considerate, very skilled (his demos are detailed and impeccable) and know exactly when to 'push' a bit so the best learning can take place. I feel completely confident now to drive on my own. It worked for me, and I have no doubt it will for you too! ”

Soraya Singh: ” I've been on quite a long journey with Ray. Right from being terrified of driving to passing my driving test in my first attempt. He's been an absolutely wonderful teacher all through. I would strongly recommend him for his sheer experience, his patience, his sincerity, his command on the subject and his sense of humour. He really goes beyond the call of duty to ensure his students are successful and that's what makes him so special. It's been great Ray - Thank you so much for getting me through both the IAM evaluation and the Driving Test. ”

Sunisa Bhokanandh: ”Ray is a wonderful instructor! I had several instructors before I met Ray and all were very average. Ray had patience, humour and always gave me that extra detail in order for me to be a safe driver. I felt completely comfortable. I HIGHLY recommend him for anyone out there who wants to learn. I passed my first time with Ray as my teacher, as he boosted my confidence and made sure I executed everything safely.

I never thought I would be able to drive but Ray had the expertise to help me overcome these barriers. He was very patient, calm and had a professional approach during the lessons. I always enjoyed the lessons. He made in believe in myself and increase my confidence. He always knew what I was doing wrong or where I could improve. Following his advice, I found myself driving so confidently and driving actually started to seem so easy. Ray always delivered more than expected. He put all his efforts in making me pass my test.

Choose Ray I did. ”

William Maloney: ”As an American with thirty years driving experience, my challenge was building on what I already knew to meet UK driving standards, while also changing or unlearning a few ingrained habits. Ray was very good at identifying the strengths and weaknesses of my driving style, and making sure I was prepared to handle all aspects of the UK driving exam. Ray worked with me to develop a plan to bring my skills up to the standard in a reasonable time frame before my theory certificate expired, and I passed on my first attempt. Professional, knowledgable, and responsible to his students - highly recommended. Thanks Ray! ”

Niomi Jacobs: ”Ray Norgate, is a lovely instructor who has patients and inderstanding in an individual who has self-doubt. Ray reassured me that I had the capability to get my driving licence through the hard work, after failing my driving test 3 times previously i was very apprehensive about doing it again and I failed the test a 4th time but I passed my 5th time all thanks to Ray Norgate x ”

Petra Charlemagne: ”Ray is an exceptional driving instructor. Trust this coming from someone who has been through a total 5 driving instructors. I thought it was impossible to get confident enough to drive let alone passing the driving test. That was until I met Ray. Ray is calm, patient and totally committed to the job, which worked so well when I made mistakes. He always gave teaching his all and that little extra. There was even time for plenty of fun and laughs. On coming up to the test date when the nerves set in Ray kept me calm, gave ample reassurance and I went ahead and passed first time. I can’t thank Ray enough and would recommend him to anyone wanting to learn to drive and pass their test with ease. ”

Saowaluk Fernando: ”Thank you very much again for your wonderful lessons. I am over the moon now. It was great to pass my test for the first time. When I was choosing a driving instructor I spent some time to pick the right person and my decision was correct! I knew that you would get me to my goal. I will recommend friends to go for you as everything you taught was a high standard. I was so nervous on exam day but as you said to, I drove with examiner just as I'd driven with you. I did it!

Jaishree Jadeja: ”Ray is a really great instructor. As I had failed my 1st test 4 years back, my confidence was really low, however he helped me to bring up confidence right up and i managed to pass with only two minors.

He was very patient and took me round the local test routes, it worked quite well as I was taken on a route which we had covered on my test.

You rock Ray!”

I was very determined to pass my test on its booked date and needed A LOT of work, and Ray did everything he could to teach me and increase my chances and I passed first time thanks to Ray”

Jennifer Langley “ I was actually pregnant when I began my lessons with Ray and am so grateful for the flexibility, understanding, patience and genuine care he showed and learning to drive was not the daunting experience I had imagined- far from it!
