"Phil is an amazing instructor.He took me on a month from my test and boosted my confidence massively to help me pass first time with only one driving fault. He is incredibly patient and always looking to help you in every way possible. He has the resources available which help improve your driving skills every lesson. He is a down to earth guy and I certainly recommend him to anyone looking to change instructor or start lessons. Thank you Phil for the great lessons!
Tom, Lancing Dec 2019

"Phil is incredibly patient and kind, he never shouted and was always able to explain why someting has occured, as well as how to prevent it next time. He nver tired of telling me the same thing over and over when I struggled with a concept, never getting angry. I am sure I will be getting back in touch for refresher lessons afrer university, thank you Phil it has been fun!
Ella, Lancing 2019

"I would absolutely recommend Phil to anyone looking to begin lessons or who is looking to change instructors. I has a total of 3 instructors and I can hand on heart say Phil was the best by far. I went on to pass my first test with Phil with only 1 minor fault, thanks to his help and it will absolutely be recommending him to friends and family. Thanks again and I look forward to sharing the roads with you soon!
Adam, Lancing 2019

"I was a nervous driver to start with but Phil made everything very easy to learn. He taught me how to drive safely and to take my time. He did'nt just get me 'test ready' but driver ready and for that I am very grateful as I passed my test first time with no minors. I don't feel that I would have been able to achieve this without Phil's dedication and patience. Thank you Phil! See you around driving!
Louise, Sompting 2018

Hi there Phil, I just wanted to say that your driving lessons were great. I felt like where you were really going through and fixing what I was doing wrong allowed me to pass first time. The way you built me up to my driving test was really effective and you also helped out loads with the theory too. I would 100% recommend your lessons to any family or friends who need to pass their test first time and to come out as confident and safe drivers
Edward Turley, Worthing 2018

"Phil is an excellent instructor, very patient and helpful. I found learning to drive with him really comfortable and reassuring. I would highly recommend him to anyone wishing to learn to drive.
Holly Darey, Worthing

"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

Phil 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.
Sahara, Lancing

"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!"
Rebeka, Worthing
"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"
Matthew, Lancing
"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"
Joe, North Lancing
"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"

"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!

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
