Sarah, Hertford

"I now feel like a confident and competent driver all thanks to Pelican!"

Sarah passes driving test in Hertford"I would not hesitate to recommend Pelican School of Motoring to any of my friends or family members. Steve was always very patient and immediately made me feel at ease. I started lessons with a different driving school and the difference was that Pelican always tried to work around my availability, where as I felt with my first instructor I was always working around his availability, which in turn meant my lessons were very sporadic. I now feel like a confident and competent driver all thanks to Pelican!"

Gen, Hoddesdon

"Without Pelican I'm not sure I would have got there! Thank you so much guys!"

Gen has Hertford driving lessons"The response to my enquiry email was so so lovely. There was no way I would do anything but go with Pelican. I liked the fact that they aren't a slick BSM or AA type business and that they have a personal approach. I felt encouraged to take the next step, one that was very daunting for me.

Pelican is not just Pelican the business, it's a small family you join for a short period of time that encourages and gives you the opportunity to achieve a fantastic life skill. As a late learner, from first email enquiry and conversations with Jan, through all my failures and successes, I felt I had genuine support and a skilled instructor in Steve. Kind, patient and structured, Steve guided me to my pass!

Every lesson I could see how I had progressed and where I was going to get to in my the next lesson which spurred me on. I can honestly say without Pelican I'm not sure I would have got there! Thank you so much guys!"

Hasdeep, Stevenage

"I have nothing but praise for the quality of service and teaching that Pelican provided."

Hasdeep"My experience of learning to drive with Pelican was certainly a positive one. Like many other people who learn to drive for the first time, finding the correct driving school was a difficult process. However, Pelican's informative website, higher than average pass rate, genuine friendliness from the first contact that I made with them and a recommendation from a friend made Pelican the obvious choice for me.

I have nothing but praise for the quality of service and teaching that Pelican provided. The teaching that Steve provided was fantastic and he was always made me feel comfortable when driving, was always punctual and provided advice and guidance that tailored my driving. By praising and advising on improvements in technique of my driving, Steve managed to progress my driving to a sufficient standard in a short space of time. Completing the Pass Plus with Pelican was also a worthwhile experience. Thanks for everything :)"

Daniel, Hertford

"Professional... never late... a great experience... I would recommend them to all my friends."

Daniel, Hertford"I chose Pelican because of their lesson prices and pass rate, and because they have great reviews on their website compared to other driving schools.  My instructor Steve was always professional, cared about my progress and gave me really good advice on my driving.  He was also never late and worked around my conditions with work, etc.  Overall I have to say it was a great experience that I had with Pelican, and I would recommend them to all my friends."

Alan, Hertford

"I really enjoyed my lessons with Steve Im sure you will too."

Alan, Hertford"I was looking for a local/non-chain driving school and, as I'm new to the area, I chose Pelican because they have a good website.

There is a certain temperament that defines a good teacher, more so a driving instructor. Steve certainly has this. Praising the good, and constructive and valid criticism of the mistakes I made, helped me to pass first time. I really enjoyed my lessons with Steve Im sure you will too."

Paul, Hertford

"I passed my test in no time...I would highly recommend Pelican School of Motoring"

Paul, Hertford"Up until a couple years ago, I had always lived in London and never really needed to drive as it was so easy to get around on public transport. When I moved to Hertfordshire I realised that I would need to start driving lessons, and I started having lessons with an independent instructor in Stevenage. I was consistently having a lesson every week. However after failing a couple of tests I realised my driving wasn't progressing and that I needed a change.

This is when I  discovered Pelican. Straight away I lost the bad habits I had previously picked up and passed my test in no time! This was due to learning to drive with Steve. Driving with Steve was a great experience and for the first time I was actually enjoying my lessons. I was ready to throw in the towel after failing my first two driving tests, but Steve kept me going and now I feel confident on the road. Thank you Steve! I would highly recommend Pelican School of Motoring."

Taz, Hertford

"Before you book a lesson with anyone else, I would recommend you contact Pelican"

Taz, Hertford"There's an array of independent and franchised driving schools, many offering incentives and special deals. So choosing the right one can be difficult! That's certainly my experience. I was lucky - Pelican from my first conversation to passing my test, were professional, personable and most important cared about me.

Driving is a life skill so the right instructor is key to your approach. Steve has many years of experience, which is self evident, but what makes him stand out is his natural talent as an instructor, which makes him an expert! Very simply before you book a lesson with anyone else, I would recommend you contact Pelican and see for yourself."

Eric, Hertford

"A driving school you can trust"

Albert the pelican"Before I started with Pelican I was worried about having to change instructors if I wasn't happy. However I needn't have worried as I chose the best company to go with. I felt comfortable and relaxed on my lessons, and my instructor Steve maintained a complete record of everything we did, and gave me ample feedback, which was crucial to my progress. I can't think of anything I'd want to change about Pelican - they are a driving school you can trust and rely on, and they're competitive too."

Fiona, Stevenage

"Excellent...by far the best"

Fiona, Stevenage"Steve was very patient and encouraging with helping me learn to drive. His teaching was not only excellent but he also had a very pleasant attitude. I had two other driving instructors before I came to Pelican School of Motoring, but Pelican were by far the best. Jan was always very helpful on the phone and a pleasure to talk to. I am delighted to have passed my test. Steve also helped me to pass the Pass Plus. I would definitely recommend Steve and Pelican to anyone. I would like to say a big thank you to both of you for helping me to pass."

Carl, Hertford

"I wanted someone who understood my needs"

Carl, Hertford"When I was looking for a driving school I wanted someone who understood my needs. I had been starting and stopping lessons for over 10 years and with the extension of my family (new baby) it was a real 'must' for me to get my licence.

When I spoke to Jan she was very understanding, took into account my driving level and didn't treat me as someone who has never been behind the wheel. On my driving assessment with Steve he was very encouraging and made me believe I should pass my test with ease.

During my two hour lessons Steve was a good companion and he is a thouroughly nice chap. I think part of my success was down to Steve's belief in my driving and the encouragement he gave. Four minor faults later and I was one of the first people to pass the new driving test. I wish to thank Jan and Steve for all their help."

Oscar, Hertford

"My lessons gave me greater confidence... I couldn't have done it without Pelican"

Oscar, Hertford"Jan, you will be pleased to know that yesterday I returned from an epic drive/holiday to the south coast of France:

Hertford to Dover, Calais to Reims, Reims to Sete, Sete to Bourges, Bourges to Le Havre, Le Havre to Calais, Dover to Hertford. All in 10 days, with 4 nights spent in Sete (1800 miles total, give or take) Not bad for a newbie, eh?

I would say the lessons gave me greater confidence and that Steve's pragmatic approach to teaching helped massively in improving the areas which needed it.  After a handful of lessons I passed and couldn't have done it without Pelican. Thanks again!

Best regards,

Oscar"

Amanda, Welwyn Garden City

"Second to none...I actually will miss my weekly lessons"

Amanda, Welwyn Garden City"I would really love to thank Pelican from the bottom of my heart. Jan was so friendly and helpful on the phone. I felt I had known her for ages - like talking to a friend. Steve really is a genius and a truly lovely man - the best instructor. His dedication, determination and patience really helped me. He really concentrated on my problem areas and helped me focus.

Steve was totally reliable and even after a flooding incident he still managed to conduct my lesson. Having lessons with Steve was like having lessons with an old friend who really cared and showed genuine interest.

Although I have been driving for years, and after my unfortunate incident, I really appreciate all Steve has done for me, he really has made me a better driver. I actually will miss my weekly lessons.

I have never felt so comfortable with someone teaching me to do something before, I really thought that I was going to feel patronised and awkward when I learnt that I would have to redo my test, but thanks to my chat with Jan on the phone and Steve's lovely nature I really feel I have learnt to drive 'properly' all over again.

The overall service I received from both Steve and Jan was second to none, and I almost feel like part of the Pelican family.

Again, thank you both so much for giving me my career and freedom back.

As the younger generation say, 'you rock'.

Daniel, Bengeo"I had heard good things about Pelican, and they met all my expectations. I chose them because learning to drive safely was the most important thing to me. My instructor Steve made sure that I progressed at a good rate, and as soon as I felt comfortable with a particular aspect then we would move on to the next thing.

Ash, Hertford

"Helpful...pleasant...completely reliable...I would not hesitate to recommend Pelican"

Ash, Hertford"I was very pleased to pass my test on my first attempt after just 18 weeks.  Steve's tuition was always calm and helpful, with a pleasant manner - and completely reliable.  

One of the reasons that led me to choose Pelican was their availability on weekends. Throughout my learning period, Steve seemed to know just how to word things to stress their importance and fix them in memory.  

In the weeks leading up to the test we comprehensively covered the area where the test was due to take place so he could point out any idiosyncrasies in signage and road layout.  I always felt Steve was completely engaged in my learning process and my abilities increased at a good rate throughout - I never felt any frustration with any facet of driving.  

For these reasons I would not hesitate to recommend Pelican to anyone looking to learn to drive."

Paul, Hertford

"Prices very competitive...the standard of teaching was fantastic"

Paul, Hertford"Pelican School of Motoring provided a personal feel which many other driving schools did not. Pelican offered me what other schools failed to when enquiring about lessons which was a friendly voice at the end of the phone that obviously cared for my custom. I feel the standard of teaching was fantastic and the preparation  for my test was very good which gave me a very realistic idea of what to expect.

Steve also offered advice for my theory test and I was impressed that the school had materials I could use for preparation. Furthermore I feel that this standard of teaching helped me progress very swiftly which proved to be cost effective for me. Also the prices were very competitive and I feel that they were very reasonable for the standard of teaching."
