"Phil is an excellent teacher, good amount of prompts and
direction. He remembers each of your previous lessons down to
the smallest detail, so that he can remind you of what to focus
on in the future. He ensures that you get to the stage where you
feel a safe and confident driver before suggesting that you put
in for your test. Not only does he focus on the practical side,
but also the theoretical side too, getting you ready for your
theory test, by giving mock tests and talking through the many
different subjects each lesson. He also teaches Pass Plus, which
I decided to take. I would highly suggest it, as he mainly
focuses on motorway driving, which for me and for many people I
know, is the most challenging part. After completing my test and
Pass Plus, I feel capable of driving safely on my own."
Beccy, Shoreham by Sea
offers a comfortable and patient driving experience, driving to
begin with was terrifying I found but I was encouraged to learn
new things every lesson along with reassurance which helped
build my confidence, in the end, driving with Phil allowed me to
pass first time with only one minor. I highly recommend Wells
school of motoring also as the theory is worked into the lessons
which helps to understand safe driving while also applying it.
Overall I couldn't thank Phil enough for everything he has done,
a very patient and delightful instructor.
"Thanks to Phil, I passed my theory and driving test first time.
I was nervous about learning to drive but felt at ease with
Phil. He was friendly and patient which made my lessons
enjoyable. Phil was punctual and planned my lessons ahead of
time. Not only did he help with the practical side of driving
but with theory too. Phil is a great instructor and I would
highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you for all your help!"
"I was quite apprehensive when I started my driving lessons with
Phil. Bu Phil soon made me feel comfortable and relaxed. He was
very patient and did not rush me at all. He was very flexible in
fitting the lessons around my working hours and family. Phil
helped me with the theory which was an added bonus. He is very
professional and his many years of experience and knowledge in
this field makes him a very good instructor. I am very happy
that I chose Phil as my driving instructor"
"Phil was recommended to me by a friend and my experience of
learning to drive with Phil was enjoyable. I felt very
comfortable. He is very accommodating when arranging lessons
around my education and work. I went on to pass my driving test
at the first attempt. I would have no hesitation at all in
recommending Phil to anyone thinking of learning to drive"
"Thanks to Phil, I passed my Theory and Practical tests first
time. Flexible and reliable. Phil would always plan ahead and
structure my program to focus on areas for improvement. Learning
was fun and not pressured. This allowed me to build up
confidence and become a safe and competent driver. Next step
will be to book in the Pass Plus Course with Wells School of
Motoring. Phil is friendly, patient and extremely encouraging -
could not have done it without him"
"Massive thanks to Phil for being so patient, calm and kind.
Being a more mature student, I was extremely nervous when I
plucked up the courage to contact Wells School of Motoring. I
never thought I could do this but Phil really puts you at ease,
is always punctual, professional and very easy to get on with. I
never felt rushed to do more than I could and when I struggled
with certain areas, I was able to go over them until I felt
comfortable. My son learnt to drive at the same time as me with
another instructor and although he did pass earlier than me, I
felt Phil had gone the extra mile to teach me more and to be
more confident - and dare I say it a much safer driver
than my son. I passed first time with 6 minors in January, I am
totally shocked that I did it but all thanks to Phil; has lots
of laughs and thank you for all your help and patience, I cannot
recommend you enough"
"I was one of your pupils 2 years ago. I am really grateful that
you taught me. I have now been driving for 2 years and have not
forgotten a thing and I really appreciate the time and patience
you had. Many thanks
"Phil is exceptionally calm and professional. I would happily
and very highly recommend Phil. He is dedicated, always fully
planned and prepared. Phil will tailor lessons to suit your
exact needs. I was an exceptionally anxious student with very
little confidence. I found learning to drive the hardest thing I
have ever had to do. Phil supported me unfailingly all the way.
He helped me find the confidence within myself to pass the
theory and practical test first time as well. Learning to drive
with Phil has been a huge investment in my future and has given
me freedom. It has truely been a life changing experience. I
would like to thank Phil wholeheartedly. I could not have done
it with out him"
Emma - East Worthing
"My learning experience to drive with Phil was exceptional. He
had a well written up plan and was always organised and also up
to date with what you needed to work on and would make sure that
you drove to the best standard you possibly could. He is
friendly, encouraging, easy to get along with, it was a pleasure
to have him as an instructor. After each lesson you would really
feel as though you had made a large amount of progress! Thank
you Phil for an enjoyable experience!
"Just wanted to thank you for being a fantastic teacher and
helping me to achieve in my driving tests. I appreciated your
consistent organisation, professionalism and the high
expectations you had for me - these all enabled me to do better
than I could of hoped! Thanks for being so patient and for
caring about my progress, not just practically but also with the
theory. It all paid off in the end!"
Lavinia McHugh - Lancing
"We wanted to thank you very much for the excellent job you have
done enabling both Verity and Maria to pass their driving test
first time. They are both thrilled to have achieved this. Both
girls have been taught to a very high standard and your
reliability and punctuality is a credit to your business. We
would have no hesitation in recommending you to any of our
friends in the future"
Simon and Hilary Jackson
"Phil is calm, patient and very reliable. He didn't push me to
take the test until I was happy to do so. I was advised as to
what reading material I needed in preparation for the theory and
practical tests. I was able to do mock tests for both parts,
which put me at ease for the tests. As a result, I passed both
at the first attempt. Thanks Phil for all your help"
Rachel - North Lancing
"Mr Wells was always punctual and gave a full
hours lesson. When I came to my test he put me at ease and did
not rush me, this enabled me to control my nerves which had let
me down several times before with other instructors. I also did
Pass Plus with Mr Wells who again was punctual and puts you at
ease and explains things very well, as always ... "
Mark (aged 25) - Shoreham
"4 children - 4 first time passes in both the
theory and practical tests all with flying colours over a 13
year period ... a fantastic record! A credit to Phil's
dedication and teaching skills .. "
