Great Instructor ! Felt at ease and confident with my driving. At the end of it all , I passed first time with only two minors. Couldn't recommend enough.

Becca C - Castle Bromwich



I have been learning to drive for a while due to various lockdowns over the past year.  Steve has offered me many ‘catch up’ lessons and after a couple of cancelled tests, lots of hours driving, I have finally passed. 

Steve is a patient, friendly instructor who is supportive and makes you feel safe on the road. I would like to thank him for helping me get my pass.

Couldn't recommend Steve more, I am the 4th member of my family to learn to drive with Steve, and we all passed first time! He is patient encouraging and a lovely person, overall a fantastic teacher.

I went with Steve from Belt Up after my partner who passed with 2 minors first try recommended him. I cannot recommend him enough, he's friendly and patient from the get-go and explains everything in a way that makes it easier to remember. I passed today and am gutted that I wont get to have lessons any more as I enjoyed them so much. If you decide to go with Steve from Belt Up you won't regret it.

I was nervous to begin taking driving lessons but couldn’t have asked for a better instructor than Steve. He was always punctual, patient and had well thought out lessons to help me improve in specific areas. The handouts and links he provides are also useful and appreciated.  I would highly recommend Belt Up Driving Academy. 
Thanks for everything Steve

 Steve's a friendly, patient and clear driving instructor who really cares about making sure you're a good driver. He's great to chat to, makes lessons fun, and lets you progress at your own speed. I've had 3 instructors and he is by far the best. Just passed, first time, would recommend him 100% (particularly for nervous drivers). Thanks Steve

Bryony H - Castle Bromwich


I've been with belt up driving academy from the start. Steve is one of the best instructors around. He makes the lessons always enjoyable from the get going. I started In mid September of last year. At first I was scared to even get behind the wheel, since it was my first time driving but Steve is patient and made me feel confident to drive. Passed my test today with only 6 minors.
I can not thank Steve enough for what he's done because without him I wouldn't of passed. I'll recommend Steve to anyone seeking lessons in the areas he covers.
Thanks for being a great instructor Steve
I really appreciate all the effort you've put into helping me drive I wish you all the best mate.

To Steve- AKA the most patient person I know!
There is literally a list of things I need to thank you for, as you have
helped me achieve one of the most important things in the world to me. 
Thank you for your patience (almost two years worth!) Thank you for your  
encouragement when I felt just about ready to give up. Thank you for your sense of humour and cheeriness (there's been times when we both sure have needed it!) 
Thank you for your honesty, for putting up with the tears, for calming my nerves and telling me to never stop trying. Well I didn't did I!? Almost two years later and at 33 weeks pregnant, your sheer hard work and support helped me to pass my test.. with two minors might I add! The look on your face when I stuck my thumb up to you, although I think you knew already! You were just as proud (and relieved!) as I was. 
I really could not have done this without you and would recommend you to anybody, you have given me so much confidence and the means to be independent , which is  going to be a huge help with the next stage of my life- becoming a mum!  
Thank you so so much.

"I was very nervous to start my lessons again as I had previously not had a very good experience with a driving school that had put me off for a few years.
A friend recommended Steve as she had just passed and had learnt with him. Considering I had put off learning for so long - Steve was very patient and pushed me when necessary. I was not confident when I first started but Steve built up my confidence and helped me to believe I could do it!
Steve never held back on telling me where I need to improve and always praised me when I learnt how to do something I was struggling with.
A really friendly instructor who I could not of passed without. Highly recommend!!
Thanks again for everything Steve


Eleana P. - Smiths Wood


I'd like to say thank you to Steve for the great experience in teaching me to drive, from my first ever lesson to the test he made me feel at ease and confident when driving. Regardless of how frustrated I got with myself he got me through it and explained everything perfectly, I would highly recommend Steve. Thank you for all your help and for the ability to have some freedom.

Maisie A - Castle Bromwich


Steve is a easy going friendly teacher, adapted his teaching for my dyslexia. Never got frustrated when I needed things to be broken down and explained differently so I could understand. I passed today on my 1st attempt with 2minors, thank you Steve. Definitely recommend!

Jo D. - Tile Cross


I've learnt with Steve on and off for 4 years.. friendly, and fairly priced. finally I done it, passed first time with only 2 minors. Thanks Steve for teaching. Best driving instructor around! Thanks once again!

Ellice C - Castle Bromwich


A Massive thank-you to my driving instructor Steve for helping me pass not only my practical test, but also my Theory test.

Right from the very start Steve was very helpful, friendly, patient and professional.

Steve would always arrive at the lessons very punctual and would always put me at ease.

Not only did he teach me to drive, he helped build up my confidence whilst driving and I truly believe without Steve and his help I wouldn’t have passed first time.

Highly recommend this driving school.

I would like to thank Steve for helping me to pass my driving exam. Steve is a great instructor with an abundance of patience which is definitely a necessity when teaching learners how to drive. I would recommend Steve to absolutely everyone.

Anthony G. - Water Orton


 I'd just like to thank you Steve for being a great driving instructor, I would 100% recommend Steve to anyone learning to drive, he has instructed some of my friends and my sister and each one of them has passed, he makes you feel confident on the road and is very patient. I'm sure if he can teach me to drive he can teach anyone to drive! Couldn't have asked for a better driving instructor! Thanks for everything Steve!

Simon M. - Curdworth


  After learning to drive from the age of 17, I had a few different driving instructors but never felt really comfortable, I was quite a nervous driver and had no real confidence behind the wheel. I failed my first driving test and felt like giving up, thankfully I found Belt Up Driving Academy and decided to give it another go. Steve really helped build my confidence, he listened and was very patient with me and made me feel comfortable throughout our lessons together. Steve is an excellent driving instructor who in my eyes takes pride in teaching people how to drive as opposed to just getting them through their test.
I'm very grateful to Steve for everything and I'm so happy to say I passed my driving test yesterday with 4 minors! I would highly recommended Belt Up Driving Academy to anyone :) 

Sadie M. - Smiths Wood 


Steve was a great instructor. It was his unique approach towards instructing that ensured I passed my test first time. He was professional, polite and always punctual for lessons. He not only taught me what i needed to know to simply pass my test, but also taught me how to be a safe, considerate driver. He is very patient and has a very friendly calm not so serious attitude. But at the same time as professional as any other instructor. You get what you pay for with Steve, from professional well presented hand-outs with all necessary information on at the end of your lessons and also a top of the range vehicle to learn how to drive in. He made learning how to drive fun and enjoyable. Something i can't say for other instructors I've been in a car with. I shall be recommending Steve to anybody I know who wishes to learn to drive. I shall also be looking forward to undergoing the pass plus scheme with Steve. Thanks again Steve,

 "It's been a fun journey learning to drive from the very first day with Steve, I still remember my first time driving and stalling as soon as I moved off. Applying the right amount of gas was also a real big problem to me but these days have gone as Steve has made every effort to help me improve my driving. He provides information guides at the end of every lesson when we cover a new topic such as junctions or roundabouts. He even makes notes after every lesson to record my progress and to aid him in finding areas for improvement. Overall, a very highly recommended instructor."

Thank you for helping me pass.

 Vincent M. - Castle Bromwich


As a complete beginner with no experience in driving whatsoever, Steve has made driving feel very easy right from the beginning. With detailed clear instructions, Steve has been able to direct my driving skills into the right directions eliminating bad habits.   Steve has flexible timing schedules which allow lessons to be taken at your leisure. Steve is fully aware of the road and new situations arriving during the lessons to ensure safe driving is maintained throughout the lesson.  At the end of every lesson Steve writes down an evaluation of the lesson. This includes areas of improvements, areas of strength and how the next lesson should develop in order to maintain good driving skills progress.

 George M. - Castle Bromwich


 An honest, punctual and down to earth guy. Having had bad experience with other drivinginstructors this instructor was a breath of fresh air! Would definitely recommend to anyone learning to drive.

I really enjoyed doing my lessons with belt up driving academy and the handouts that i was given helped out a lot. I felt like I learnt a lot during the conversations i had with my instructor Steve during lessons. His the reason why I passed first time and took the practical test with confidence.
