#108 Manual Driving Lessons East Finchley
I passed my manual driving test within just a few months of starting to learn – thanks to Nik.
He is a fantastic teacher, allowing you to progress at your own pace and giving you detailed instructions and feedback throughout.
Nik is one of the most relaxed people you will ever meet. He has a great sense of humour, is full of interesting conversations (if you feel like chatting) and will always make you feel at ease while you’re driving – even if you’re not confident. There is nothing to worry about with Nik by your side.
Nik is also incredibly professional – he even took time out when he was supposed to be on holiday to take my test with me!
I will be forever in Nik’s debt for helping me to gain my driving license – and for making it fun along the way.

#107 Automatic Driving Lessons Palmers Green
Nik is without a doubt the most amazing driving instructor. I had only been driving with him for around 4 months however his persistent attitude, in depth teaching, incredible guidance and dedication to his work I succeeded in obtaining my driving test first time around!! I’m from Australia and being on foreign roads with different rules was an obvious worry when learning but nik put my worries aside making me feel more comfortable behind the wheel. I have had driving lessons before but could never find the right instructor until I had my first lesson with Nik. I always feared driving as I never had the confidence but his teaching skills and over all personality has allowed me to finally achieve my licence, freedom and a sense of confidence I never had.
Thank you Nik, for your time and belief in me.
So if you are thinking of getting your licence or gaining confidence when driving I would 110% suggest Nik! It was such an incredible experience. I’m still overwhelmed with happiness having passed my test last Monday !!

#106 Manual Driving Lessons Finchley
Nik is a really patient instructor. His professional, yet calm approach with every lesson is encouraging and motivating. With his use of technology, it is really helpful for understanding where you had an error, and what to do differently to avoid or correct that error. When I started with Nik it had been a while since I had last drove but, he easily managed to get me to where I should be, passing with just two minors and I can’t thank him enough. I would definitely recommend him, as well as his prices are worth it, due to his high quality of teaching. Thank you soo much Nik.

#105 Automatic Driving Lessons Crouch End
Thanks to Nik I passed my automatic driving test first time. Nik is a very patient driving instructor and really gave me the confidence I needed to drive around the hectic streets of London! I felt completely ready to take the test despite only having a few lessons – I never felt pressured to take more lessons than I actually needed. Nik is more focused on being able to drive anywhere, in any car, then on only passing the test which is great. There’s no little tricks to be learned, just a better understanding of how to drive and the impact of each decision I make when driving. While Nik’s lessons seem expensive compared to other driving schools (I have had a few lessons with another company which I didn’t enjoy), the personal touch really does make a difference as you never know who you’re going to get with the bigger driving companies. I chose Nik based on the excellent reviews I read and I would advise anyone reading this to believe the reviews are all real and well earned. Thanks Nik!

#104 Manual Driving Lessons Haringey
I switched to Nik’s lessons from another provider around my 5th driving lesson ever, when I compared my driving experiences with a friend who was at the time taking lessons with him (also passed 1st time!) and was amazed by how great these lessons sounded compared to mine. She described Nik as a non-judgemental teacher with a sound approach to actually making sure his students make progress, an approach that is very much tailored to your individual needs – and that’s exactly how I felt during the process. For years I was very nervous about the idea of driving until Nik had managed to very successfully convince me that I can actually drive and even enjoy it. It also didn’t take as long as I thought it would, thanks to the personal approach – each lesson we worked on correcting the “issues” from previous lessons, while Nik also explained everything thoroughly, so that not only I knew what I’ve done wrong or right, but also what could be the consequences of both right and wrong actions – and how can I work to improve the “wrong”. Nik has a very good approach to teaching and is focused on your success at driving safely around London and beyond. He also knows the roads of North London perfectly, and thanks to him, the test roads felt familiar as we have been driving on them before, numerous times. If you’re committed to becoming a safe, skilled driver, I wouldn’t hesitate any longer but contact Nik for availability today. 🙂

#103 Automatic Driving Lessons Crouch End
I’m in my late thirties and learned to drive on automatic – I started lessons with Nik in January and passed in early August.
Nik is patient, friendly, nonjudgmental, good company, and an excellent teacher and motivator. He has an encyclopaedic knowledge of north and northwest London streets and knows the best spots for lessons and practice manoeuvres. His instructions are always clear and he’ll answer any questions you throw at him. Nik was also a very sharp observer of my driving and always had constructive ideas about what I was doing well, and where I could improve. His friendliness and easy manner really helped to boost my confidence.
Aside from the lessons, Nik was excellent at coaching me for the theory test, and provides free access to a really helpful theory test website. He also uses iPad apps and dashcam footage during lessons to show you areas for improvement. Then, right before my driving test, we did three mock tests which were really helpful in making me feel prepared and relaxed for the actual driving test.
All in all Nik is an exceptional teacher and I recommend him without reservation.
Pauls Isaacs, Crouch End
#102 Manual Driving Lessons Wood Green
Nik is very friendly and incredibly patient and calm, and a great driving instructor. I always felt very comfortable asking any questions (no matter how silly they probably were…) and he was always happy to answer, providing logical reasons when answering (resulting in many “oh yeah that makes perfect sense” lightbulb moments).
He provides great resources to learn and to practice for the test; especially the “learner zone” videos that cover everything from footage from real tests from your test centre, to more general tips such as tips when driving around roundabouts. The front and rear camera footage is especially useful – we often would pull up and discuss something that just happened, which is a great way to learn.
I can’t recommend Nik enough!
Phil Bates, Wood Green
#101 Automatic Driving Lessons Crouch End
If anyone is considering to learn how to drive and has never driven before, I would really recommend Drive with Nik. Nik has a different, more customised approach compared to big driving schools. He is very patient, encouraging and yet challenges you all the way. Nik is very dedicated and committed. I found his after lesson reports very useful as well as explanation of different road situations on his iPad, so if you perceive the information more visually, don’t go any further but with Drive with Nik. Overall great experience! Thank you, Nik. It’s been a real pleasure.
Emiliya Sim, Crouch End
#100 Automatic Driving Lessons Southgate
Nik is a brilliant driving instructor. He always sends me the feedback after each lesson which I find very useful to revise my weak points. He is very patient and encouraging from my first lesson right the way through to my test day. I feel like by having lesson with Nik, not only just help me pass the driving test but also make me become a safe and confident driver. I am happy to recommend Nik to any of my friends.
Rui Song, Southgate
#99 Manual Driving Lessons Crouch End
I chose Nik as I wanted to avoid using a big driving school and his reviews and testimonies were great. I wasn’t disappointed. Nik is very friendly and nice to be around but more importantly a great driving instructor. What I really liked is that he’s great at giving you confidence, always relaxed whatever the situation, putting you in control. You can feel the trust he puts into you. He was also great for planning the lessons ahead, working around my schedule and providing progress updates. I would recommend Nik to anyone and will miss our weekly lessons.
Sylvain Marc, Crouch End
#98 Manual Driving Lessons Muswell Hill
Nik is an amazing driving instructor — I had lessons from having no experience of driving to passing the test on my first time. I didn’t feel like I was a “natural” driver, but Nik took time to consider how I learned and he adapted his teaching techniques fittingly. He was excellent in spotting potential problems quickly and worked with me to prevent them from unfolding. Nik is really patient and he would be able to help anyone progress comfortably and quickly. His visual technology is really helpful, and, whilst preparing for the test, his car camera recordings were excellent for reviewing and improving drives. I also enjoyed our lessons and had enough banter to keep me relaxed and smiling the whole way through — thanks Nik!
Aislinn White, Muswell Hill
#97 Manual Driving Lessons Arnos Grove
I passed the first time, thanks to Nik! He is a brilliant driving instructor! He explains everything very clearly, he is always calm and encouraging, and helped me tremendously to find confidence in my driving ability. I find all his tools helpful– an instant replay of video clips recorded whilst you are on your lesson to identify errors made whilst driving, the Ipad application tool showing clearly what to do in different situations, a summary of the lesson sent after, a mock test, youtube video for the show me part of the exam. He also takes you on test routes to familiarise yourself around the area of your exam centre. Lessons are always very enjoyable as Nik has a good sense of humour and he is a nice guy. I highly recommend him!
Karlene Hayworth, Arnos Grove
#96 Automatic Driving Lessons Muswell Hill
I didn’t think I’d ever get a driving license. But then I didn’t know the reason why I thought that was because I didn’t think a driving instructor like Nik exists. Someone as calm, knowledgeable and meticulous. The pacing of my lessons was flawless, the importance of which cannot be overstated. It was precisely because of this that I never felt any anxiety during my lessons, and I was actually looking forward to them, which is something I had never imagined to be the case based on my past experiences with other instructors. Nik always knew when the right time was to introduce something new, challenge me, go easy, re-visit anything etc. It didn’t take many lessons at all before he had gained my unconditional trust – I knew by following his lead, I’ll not only get my license but, much more importantly, become a competent driver. The highest praise I can give is since passing my test I actually miss my drives with Nik! Highly recommended.
I remember when I first reached out to Nik, he clarified he had no time slots available for another few months. I considered looking elsewhere, but ultimately decided not to because of reviews. If you’re in a similar position, and that will be quite likely considering how popular he is, unless it’s a matter of life or death for you to get your license, I urge you to wait like I did. I’m not exaggerating when I say that on reflection that was one of the best decisions I’ve ever taken.!

#95 Manual Driving Lessons Tottenham
Nik is one of the calmest people I’ve met. This is an excellent trait when you are a learner driver. His calm manner, dedication and skill helped me get through my manual driving test. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to learn. On the day of the test his pep talk and excellent advice to “always think is it safe?” helped me ace my test. I’m hoping to persuade my partner to start DrivingWithNik too!
Oisin Mulvihill, Tottenham
#94 Automatic Driving Lessons Bounds Green
Nik is a fantastic driving instructor, he is honest and professional. What I like about the service is that Nik gives the driving lessons taking into account your preferences and style of learning. He also uses latest technology and innovations which helped me a lot to learn and work on my weaknesses. I was very nervous about being in a driving test situation. I addressed this issue to Nik who helped me to control my nerves through series of mock tests and valuable advice. I can’t recommend Nik highly enough, his service is worth every penny!
Mona Aziz, Bounds Green
#93 Manual Driving Lessons Palmers Green
Nik is highly experienced professional, very punctual and patient enough to make you better and a safe driver.
He is very knowledgeable too and you can ask any question on driving you will get an expert advise. He is also good humoured person so you wont get bored after couple of rides. His teaching style is unique and you will be regularly assessed carefully and communicated instantly on areas to improve. Overall I am a satisfied customer and would be more than happy to recommend him to anyone.
Sasi Kathimanda, Palmers Green
#92 Manual Driving Lessons Wood Green
Nik is a true modern driving instructor at the highest level. He is very knowledgeable as instructor and has a truly human touch: he is patient, understanding, leaving room to own initiative (if it is safe, of course), responsive to the learners’ demands. If you say ‘I had a hard day, I want an easy drive today’, or ‘give me a challenge’, he will surely oblige. But what makes him unique, is the technical support he provides. During his lessons Nik uses iPad’s apps to explain the manoeuvres and routes, which immediately clarifies difficult points. To his learners, he makes available links to excellent mock theory tests. Moreover, you will have access to videos made by car camera with real routes taken by his earlier learners, annotated with Nik’s comments. I spent hours watching these videos and, I’m sure, this contributed a lot to my final success. I can’t recommend Nik highly enough!
Svetlana Makarova, Wood Green
#91 Automatic Driving Lessons Crouch End
Nik is an exceptional driving instructor. He is totally focused on helping you to become a safe and confident driver. He has an extremely intelligent and thoughtful approach, tailoring his teaching to your individual needs. He is always completely professional with useful strategies and advice. He sends helpful reviews after each lesson; a useful weekly newsletter and he also helps with the theory test – offering a complete driving test service. You know he wants you to pass your test as much as you do without dragging things out or pushing you before you are ready. Above all his calm and kind approach made all the difference to me, especially when I started to wobble a bit as the test got nearer – you won’t find a better driver instructor – sign up quickly he gets very booked up for obvious reasons!
Caroline O’Dwyer, Crouch End
#90 Manual Driving Lessons Wood Green
Driving with Nik, has been a great experience! Nik is a calm, patient and very smart man and this is reflected in how he teaches you how to drive. He genuinely is passionate about teaching you how to become a very safe and smart driver and at the same time making the whole experience feel like a very fun ride!
I’ll be missing our weekly lessons, but I’ll hopefully see you on the roads soon again!
PS as Nik is a very popular driving instructor he is naturally always juggling the schedules of his many students so if you have to wait a week or two before you can start having your first lesson, than take my advice and hold tight, that’s what I did and Nik helped me to pass my test first time and I now love to drive!
Youness Benali, Wood Green
#89 Automatic Driving Lessons Wood Green
Nik is a brilliant driving instructor and I honestly can’t recommend him highly enough. He was recommended by a friend who had gone through multiple driving instructors and was thrilled with the service she received from Nik so I trusted her judgement and was not disappointed! Nik is patient, kind, efficient and has amazing time management. He listens carefully to what you want to do and will follow your lead and ideas. He has lots of hints, tips and tricks and will teach you to drive carefully and defensively by ‘taking your space’ I feel like I have been set up for a safe and enjoyable driving ‘career’ with Nik’s tutelage and will always have my ‘Swedish driving voice’ in my head what ever I do.
Thanks Nik! You are a Superstar!

#88 Manual Driving Lessons Southgate
Nik is a fabulous driving instructor. He always provided detailed explanations of each aspect of driving and tips on how to improve, and his calm and level-headed manner helped me improve my confidence as a driver.
Naomi Warburton, Southgate
#87 Manual Driving Lessons Woodside Park
Passed my test first time thanks to Nik’s excellent teaching. The lessons were considered and tailored to my needs. Especially ‘hill lesson day’ where Nik patiently helped me overcome my fear of hill starts by driving up and down hills for the full lesson – at my request. I wanted to pass my test in a relatively short time, and Nik fit in a lot of lessons.
Lucie Cohen, Woodside Park
#86 Manual Driving Lessons Wood Green
Nik is a great driving instructor. I would certainly recommend him to all learners hoping to obtain a driving licence. He is very calm and positive, he teaches at a good pace, and also listens and addressees any concerns you may have and will help with what you think you need to work on. It was overall a great experience.
Awet Russom, Tottenham
#85 Automatic Driving Lessons North London
I have never been remotely interested in cars or driving and had never even sat behind the wheel of one until my mid forties. An attempt in a manual car at 45 confirmed to me that I would never want or be able to drive…but 3 years later circumstances meant I HAD to learn.
Nik was great from day 1, patient, encouraging and positive. I even started to enjoy the lessons, and over the weeks my attitude changed and my confidence increased. I always felt Nik tailored the lessons to me, he listened to my concerns, analysed my weaknesses, praised my strengths and that he was genuinely behind me every step of the way. So glad to have passed, and incredibly grateful to Nik for helping me get here!
Andrew Bennett, Harringay
#84 Driving Lessons Palmers Green
Nik is undoubtedly the best driving instructor I have come across. He went the extra mile (pun intended) at every stage of the process, which resulted in a high pass on both my theory and practical driving test on a manual (both first attempts while learning with Nik). He is very patient, calm, and has high standards, which has prepared me well for driving on the roads. He’s also very honest! So believe the hype and book with him! Thanks a mill Nik and I look forward to completing the Pass Plus course with you!
Sarah Macrory, Palmers Green
#83 Driving Lessons Crouch End
Nik is an exceptional driving instructor, I’ve had such a great experience learning with him. I was incredibly nervous learning to drive again, after a previous bad experience with a very well known driving school. I looked for a local, independent instructor that had good student reviews- I’m now very happy to now be adding mine! Nik is extremely patient and highly creative, tailoring his teaching methods to your learning style. He really goes the extra mile (puns aside!) to give you the support you need to gain confidence on the road. He’s very reliable, and accommodating and the teaching aids he uses – iPad apps, road cameras, online support… really help to make things clear. His fantastic sense of humour will keep you laughing all the way to the test centre 🙂 Thank you Nik!
Nerissa Mauricio, Crouch End
#82 Driving Lessons North Finchley
Nik is a great driving instructor. He’s calm, punctual, and listens to your concerns. There’s no piggybacking during lessons so the 2 hours is focused on you and your needs. Lessons are fun and rewarding and take place in a friendly environment. I’d recommend Nik to anyone who was looking to learn to drive.
Stavro Yianni, North Finchley
#81 Driving Lessons Muswell Hill
I have to start by thanking Nik for being so awesome over the past year. Nik has been the most patient and understanding driving instructor I have ever met. He made me feel very comfortable with every lesson and helped build up my confidence to deal with crazy London drivers. I finally passed my test this week and had to say goodbye to him and his lovely Red Peugeot. Thank you for all your help Nik, you’ve been a star!
Tristan Chilvers, Muswell Hill
#80 Driving Lessons Bounds Green
I have today passed my test first time thanks to Nik’s teaching! He’s been fantastic – patient and helpful, always attentive to what’s going on in the car and to how you’re doing as a learner. I like that he uses technology to help the lessons – showing you things on the tablet etc. I’m hoping to do Pass Plus with Nik and I’d highly recommend him to anyone else.
Will Cragg, Bounds Green
#79 Driving Lessons East Finchley
Nik’s calm approach was really good for me, as I was a nervous driver.
He would always go over our program and plan next lesson ahead so I knew what I need to work on. Very reliable, never late, never cancelled on me. And I passed my test first time!
Emilia Slupecka, East Finchley
#78 Driving Lessons Wood Green
Nik is an exceptional driving instructor. I couldn’t recommend him highly enough. I had two instructors before him and pretty much lost all my confidence in driving. With Nik I passed my manual driving test first time! He’s best at establishing and restoring your confidence in driving. If you are tired of being yelled at by your instructor and have doubt about your driving skills, come drive with Nik!
Chunli Guo, Wood Green
#77 Driving Lessons Muswell Hill
My experience with Nik can only be described as positive. He made me feel relaxed and confident in my driving abilities straight away. When I became stuck on something the use of the iPad and diagrams made things instantly clear.
Nik is a fantastic driving instructor who is patient and very professional.
Poppy Chapple, Muswell Hill
#76 Driving Lessons Friern Barnet
Nik is a fantastic driving instructor. I was quite nervous about learning to drive at the outset but Nik’s calm and relaxed manner put me at ease very quickly. I was particularly impressed by his teaching technique – he introduced new skills every week and I felt like I was able to learn at a good pace. I passed my test with two minors and there is no way I could have done it without Nik’s expertise.
Minolee Shah, Friern Barnet
#75 Driving Lessons Muswell Hill
I would really recommend Nik to every learner. He is an excellent driving instructor. I thought that I am never going to be able to drive but thanks to his teaching I did pass my manual test. Nik helped me to build up my confidence and was very patient with my mistakes. He is also always punctual for the lesson. THANK YOU VERY MUCH NIK.
Jonida Cerri, Muswell Hill
#74 Driving Lessons Muswell Hill
Absolutely brilliant driving instructor, made learning to drive much less stressful. I would definitely recommend Nik as a driving instructor and I will miss my driving lessons! Made me feel very at ease in the car and on the road, I didn’t feel rushed or out of my depth at any time.
Laura Cochrane, Muswell Hill
#73 Driving Lessons Crouch End
Nik was a completely brilliant driving instructor – patient, calm, flexible and a great teacher. He really listens to how you feel you learn best and adapts his style to suit that. Despite feeling pretty nervous when we started I always felt safe driving with him, at the same time as tackling a new challenge each week so I was always moving forward. He’s also very funny, so you’ll learn how to continue to drive safely while laughing. Thank you Nik!
Maddy Lawson, Crouch End
#72 Driving Lessons Southgate
I passed my driving test just days ago thanks to Nik’s excellent coaching. Nik was a very patient tutor and he tailored each driving lesson exactly to my needs; I passed at Wood Green Test Centre with just two minor faults and I would recommend Drive with Nik to anyone who is thinking about learning to drive.
Dan Hughes, Southgate
#71 Driving Lessons Crouch End
I am so pleased I chose Nik as my driving instructor. He is an excellent and patient teacher who taught me everything I needed to be prepared for my practical test as well as for future driving. I was initially nervous about driving, however Nik quickly put me at ease and built up my confidence. I am happy to say I passed first time today, with only 2 minors. I would thoroughly recommend booking driving lessons with Nik – you won’t regret it!
Angharad Gilmore, Crouch End
#70 Driving Lessons Crouch End
Nik is a very patient and professional driving instructor. He would tailor each driving lesson according to my needs and gaps for improvement. After a few hours of driving with Nik, he allowed me to pinpoint things that I was keen on practising and improving. He was clear with instructions throughout. He is very organised and punctual. He never rescheduled any of my appointments. He would also send me a progress update after each lesson. He is also very sympathetic and we had a few laughs.
Last but not least I passed first time after 32 hours with having no practise outside of my lessons and with little driving experience carried out 15 years ago! In one word RECOMMENDED! Thank you so much Nik. Keep up with the great job you are doing.
Joanna Groszewska, Crouch End
#69 Driving Lessons Palmers Green
Nik is an amazing driving instructor; I couldn’t recommend him highly enough. I passed first time having no practise outside of my lessons and no previous experience of driving.
Nik is very patient and knowledgeable, helping me to build up my confidence quickly (something I had little of at the beginning).
His clear instructions, along with his use of apps on the iPad to help visualise situations, were invaluable.
After every lesson Nik would send an email which summarised my progress in a very structured way. I could easily see which steps I had mastered, still had to work on and had yet to start. This helped me to prepare for each lesson and motivate me.
I always felt like my lessons were tailored to me, to help with my weaknesses and am now a safe and confident driver.
Anyone looking for a driving instructor will be so happy they chose Nik. Thanks Nik!
Daniel Monsurate, Palmers Green
#68 Driving Lessons North London
I thoroughly enjoyed my driving lessons (which I doubt many people say!)
Nik was very patient, took things slowly and methodically and moved on as I was ready to.
He does not just teach people to pass a test, but teaches people to drive well and most importantly, safely.
He gives excellent instruction and is a passionate teacher.
He gives very good feedback and lesson progress updates.
He also gives links to free theory practise apps which were really useful.
I passed first time thanks to Nik.
Would wholeheartedly recommend him to any new learners.
Lucy Blackhurst, Highgate
#67 Driving Lessons Southgate
I found Nik to be thorough in every aspect of driving, whether that be tailoring lessons to make sure that I improve my weaknesses, or doing mock tests to make sure I am aware of test situations. He took care of everything, including booking the test for me. I’m really happy I chose him.
Connor Fanning, Southgate
#66 Driving Lessons Friern Barnet
I couldn’t recommend Nik highly enough! I had several instructors before him but Nik taught me how to be a safe and confident driver and I passed first time with him.

#65 Refresher Driving Lessons Wood Green
Book Nik now and avoid disappointment!
Nik is an amazing teacher who inspires confidence. He is highly experienced and, more importantly, professional, affable and knowledgable. I was stressed and nervous about driving with my young daughter, but Nik has inspired me to became a better driver than I ever imagined. Thank you Nik!
Izabela Martyka-Lau, Wood Green
#64 Driving Lessons Palmers Green
I would really really recommend Drive with Nik. As background, I started learning in Feb and passed (first time) in August, one lesson a week on average and didn’t manage to practise more than about 3 times outside lessons.
Nik is very clear when explaining how to do things. He was really good at helping me to progress to the next stage and knowing when to introduce new skills – I often felt challenged, but I wasn’t ever bored or scared or totally out of my comfort zone. It was progress just at the right pace. He was a really calming presence in the car (something which was really important to me)! Also, I felt like he taught me to drive rather than just how to pass the test (although obviously they are almost the same thing). I will definitely be doing my Pass Plus with Nik.
Thanks so much Nik!!
Emily Marshall, Palmers Green
#63 Driving Lessons Barnet
Nik is an amazing driving instructor. He is very knowledgeable and knows exactly how to teach people, so that they know both how to pass their test and feel confident about driving in itself. He is extremely patient and he really gives his 100%. I found it very reassuring knowing that he really cared about my progress and was very honest with me about what I was doing right and what still needed improvement.
I would recommend him to anybody who is learning how to drive ( I am already doing so when I hear about anybody who is looking 🙂
Thanks to Nik I passed my test first time and it is really thanks to him, as I’m not an easy person to teach ! 😉 Thank you Nik! 🙂
Agnieszka Gonczarewicz, Barnet
#62 Driving Lessons Southgate
I never thought I was going to see a picture of myself holding a driving pass certificate! And even more that I was going to pass at my first attempt! Not in a million years… Well, today it happened! And all of this thanks to my great driving instructor, Nik!.. Nik taught me how to drive, totally from scratch in my mid thirties. At first I was extremely nervous and did not have any confidence at all. But thanks to Nik’s calm personality, patience – and his nerves of steel! – I gradually became more comfortable with my driving as well as more optimistic about my capacity to do so. Nik did not teach me how to pass the driving test, what he taught me was how to drive well – in all conditions, types of roads and areas! And because of this, now that I have passed, I feel positive and up to the challenge to drive on my own… Massive thanks for this Nik and see you on the roads!
#61 Driving Lessons Palmers Green
I’m so glad I chose Nik to be my driving instructor. Lessons were always very well structured and Nik is very clear in giving instructions and is very professional. He is always patient and helpful throughout all the lessons. So happy for passing first time 🙂 thanks again Nik!
Joanna Spiropoulos, Palmers Green
#60 Driving Lessons Southgate
After I passed my driving test today at Barnet, I can only regret one thing: why didn’t I choose Drive with Nik earlier!!! Obviously, Nik is not my first driving instructor. If I haven’t met Nik, I would probably never have known how bad my last one was. I had 40 hours of driving lessons with my previous driving instructor, then I took the test, but failed. Then he told me, don’t worry, do another 10 hours, you will be fine. I trusted him, but failed again, with 19 minors and 3 serious faults. That driving instructor didn’t care that much, and just told me it’s just bad luck, you should do another 10 or 20 hours to make yourself more comfortable with driving. But I felt there must be something wrong because I didn’t really know what I did wrong! He never really gave me any clear instructions. So, I decided to stop and try some other instructor. This time, I only searched for those instructors with good reviews (the first time I only checked the price). Then I found Drive with Nik. He made me realise that although I have had 50 hours of driving lessons, I still hardly knew anything about driving (I can tell my last instructor’s whole divorce story vividly though). Nik was extremely patient, extremely knowledgeable about driving and methods of teaching. He always spot those particular faults I was doing and focussed on them. With his handouts and online videos, everything gets even more helpful. He’s such a professional. He’s not someone just working for money, he really cares about the learners. Can’t thank him enough and recommend him higher.
Yan Di, Southgate
#59 Driving Lessons Crouch End
New to the area, I was unable to work from the recommendations of friends when looking for a driving instructor. I found Nik online, was convinced to go with him by reviews like this and could not have been more thrilled to have done so. Nik teaches you to drive in a way which is tailored to suit you and the way you want to learn. At the end of a lesson you will receive a progress report to allow you to keep track of what you are achieving each week, and what you still need to focus on – this gives excellent perspective on how close you are to being ready to take your test. He is extremely patient, charming company and brilliant at communicating how to obtain and maintain the skills needed to be able to drive well. Nothing feels arbitrary, always necessary, and he teaches you not just to pass your test, but to be a confident and safe driver when you are finally allowed on the road alone. Can not recommend him highly enough.
Ciarán Owens, Crouch End
#58 Driving Lessons Crouch End
I really cannot rate Nik highly enough. I learnt with him pretty much from scratch, aged 27, and without the ability to practise in-between lessons. He was patient and supportive and good-humoured throughout. Lessons went at my pace and I was given the opportunity to direct lessons to goals set by me if I wanted to, with suggestions and advice from Nik throughout.
I know that I am an anxious driver and Nik dealt with this brilliantly, finding ways and strategies for me to overcome this and boost my confidence.
I found him polite, funny, highly intelligent, good company, and a great teacher. Also I have a job which can make it difficult to schedule lessons or mean that they have to be changed or cancelled with little notice, and Nik was very accommodating with this.
I passed first time with only four minors, and I owe this entirely to Nik. Although I am past the age limit where PassPlus makes a difference to my insurance premium, I will be doing PassPlus with Nik to increase my road confidence because I trust him implicitly as a teacher.
Olivia Potts, Crouch End
#57 Driving Lessons Southgate
I was able to pass my driving test first time with Nik, the easy booking system, interactive detailed iPad explanations and calm approach to learning to drive means the tuition you get is unrivalled. Having tried AA (only one 1.5 hour lesson), who seemed inexperienced and more concerned with paperwork, I can safely say that Drive with Nik offers a far greater level of service. The manual Peugeot 107 is very easy to use and especially good for manoeuvres. I cannot recommend Nik any higher, a truly brilliant learning experience.
Bilal Ahmed, Southgate
#56 Driving Lessons Muswell Hill
I highly recommend Nik as a driving instructor. With his instruction I was able to pass my practical exam on my first attempt.
I felt at ease driving with him right away. He was always very calm and courteous, gave clear instructions and great tips throughout our lessons.
I had experience driving in the U. S. But hadn’t ever driven in the U. K. Which made his advice extremely valuable as there are quite a few differences. His guidance gave me a lot more confidence driving on the roads.

I passed my driving test, first time with the help of Nik. I would highly recommend him as he is patient, professional and very punctual. Over the 20 lessons that I took, Nik helped me to build up my confidence in driving all around different types of areas and roads in Wood Green, Barnet and Enfield. I am now a very confident driver, thanks to the driving skills he has transferred to me.

#54 Driving Lessons New Southgate
I first learnt to drive 18 years ago but after a number of failed attempts it knocked my confidence and I was put off driving for years. I finally decided it was time to learn to drive again and saw that Nik had great customer reviews. Nik’s calm and patient manner helped build up my confidence in driving. His lessons are well-structured and he uses the iPad to visually reinforce your learning. Nik is good at identifying areas you need to improve on to make you a better and confident driver. I highly recommend Nik, he’s a great driving instructor and I’m happy to have found him.

#53 Driving Lessons Wood Green
I would whole-heartedly recommend Nik to anyone who wants to learn how to drive, especially those who are nervous about learning. By nature I am an anxious driver but with Nik’s help and patience, I was able to pass first time. As many others have commented already, Nik is a consummate professional – he is punctual and tailors lessons to address any weaknesses you may have. He also has a very good sense of humour so you will be sure to have a giggle along the way!
Thanks so much Nik!

After a string of bad experiences I had very nearly given up learning to drive when I found Drive with Nik. Nik is an excellent teacher, calm (I tested this many times), patient (must have explained some things 1000 times before I got it) and PUNCTUAL. The 2h slots also makes a big difference.

#51 Driving Lessons Winchmore Hill
Nik is an amazing driving instructor! I came to driving rather late and had always been a bit nervous of getting out there on the roads. However, from the very first moment I got into the car with him he put me at ease and made me feel confident in my ability. The nerves disappeared and I looked forward to each lesson. Nik is calm, patient and encouraging and instructs in a way that is clear and straightforward. He clearly describes techniques, manoeveres etc (using various apps and visual aids when necessary) and sends a progress report after each lesson so you know what has been covered and how you’re doing. On top of that he was always on time, had a clean car and was professional and friendly. I can not recommend Nik highly enough – if you’re thinking who to choose, choose Nik!
Thea Olsen, Winchmore Hill
#50 Driving Lessons Friern Barnet
There a driving instructors and then there are DRIVING INSTRUCTORS! Nik is undoubtedly THE BEST driving instructor I have ever had!! Why? Quite simply because he teaches you how to drive and become a confident driver as oppose to just passing a test. Nik is incredibly patient and his calm manner helped to make me feel secure and confident. Through reflective practise techniques, I developed an understanding and knowledge of the road that quite quickly transformed me from a learner to a driver. Nik used coaching, amazing apps on his iPad, diagrams…. Whatever it took to enable me to become a safe driver with a deeper awareness of the road. If your looking for an instructor Nik is THE MAN!!
Odette Brooks, Friern Barnet
#49 Driving Lessons Palmers Green
Good driving instructors are hard to come by, however, you will be pleased to know Nik is an incredible driving instructor who seems to ooze both experience and confidence. His teaching capabilities are enforced by his patience and great observation skills. He is more than willing to pinpoint your mistakes and update you with your progress after each lesson – showing great care towards each student. On top of most things, Nik is extremely Punctual and he makes sure you are getting the services you are paying for. I’m glad to have used Drive with Nik and I wish he was the 1st driving instructor I had gone too. This cool instructor will definitely get my recommendation! Thanks Nik.

#48 Driving Lessons Barnet
I am a first-time driver of a more “mature” age, and was a bit cautious about getting behind the wheel about 20 years after everyone else!After my first 2-hour lesson with Nik, I wondered what I’d ever been worried about. Nik has an almost subliminal way of teaching, you absorb knowledge and driving skills. He’s patient, calm, supportive, yet firm and brings out the best. I would recommend Nik to anyone who is even thinking of having driving lessons, it will be the best decision you make towards getting your licence. Thank you, Nik!!

#47 Driving Lessons Edmonton
After searching for weeks for a good driving instructor I came across DriveWithNik. As someone who was new to driving before contacting DriveWithNik, I must say it was journey worthwhile. Nik is a consistent, reliable and well experienced driving instructor. The car I used for my lessons was highly maintained and looked outstanding. The experience that Nik has enabled him to support me adapt a driving style that suits my learning needs. With Nik, I was able to receive weekly updates on how my driving was improving and the aspects I needed to work more on. This monitoring method boosted my confidence and allowed me to stay on top of my own learning. The service that I received with Nik was cost effective. However, it is advisable to prepare financially before starting taking lessons as it can become expensive. Having said that, the end outcome is GREAT! With DriveWithNik I did not have to worry about picking up or dropping off other learners during my driving time, in fact I was picked up and dropped off at my desired destination. I am glad to have chosen DriveWithNik to support me with my driving lessons and would recommend him to others.
Ayan Ahmed, Edmonton
#46 Driving Lessons Palmers Green
Nik was a very helpful and patient driving instructor, and he kept me well informed of my progress. Having had a few driving lessons with two other driving instructors in the past, I can confidently say that his lessons are good value for money. With his help and tuition, I passed my practical driving test first time. I would recommend his services to anyone.
Lauren Perry, Palmers Green
#45 Driving Lessons Palmers Green
After a few failed tests with another driving instructor, I began driving again and was dreading it. In just a few months Nik not only managed to improve my driving skills but also helped me so much with my anxiety towards the test. He is the calmest, most patient and understanding person I think I’ve ever met! After failing one test due to nerves, Nik tried lots of different things to calm me and I really felt like he met my individual needs to allow me to pass second time with him. I really enjoyed my lessons and I would encourage anyone looking for lessons to go to Nik.
Suzi Crouch, Palmers Green
#44 Driving Lessons Wood Green
Nik is a wonderful driving instructor! From my very first driving lesson he made me feel confident behind the wheel of a car. During lessons, in addition to focusing on my driving, Nik continually encouraged me to analyse the road ahead, improving my awareness of other road users and my ability to predict hazards. His innovative use of technology really helped to illustrate manoeuvres and engine functions giving me a deeper understanding of my driving. Thanks to Nik I was able to pass both my theory and my practical (manual) driving tests first time. If you’re looking for professional and productive driving lessons, you need look no further than Drive with Nik.
Ama Robinson, Wood Green
#43 Driving Lessons Tottenham
With the large number of driving instructors in my area, I despaired of finding someone suitable but with Nik, I struck gold. His lessons were always clear, well structured, hands-on and he exudes a sense of calm and professionalism that made for a great introduction to driving for me, who had never driven before starting driving lessons with him this summer. I passed my driving test today and plan to continue to PassPlus and motorway lessons with Nik. I can’t recommend him highly enough.
Sean McGhee, Tottenham
#42 Driving Lessons Wood Green
I would highly recommend driving lessons with Nik. Nik is calm, patient and a real gentleman. I found the driving process with Nik to be personal, working at a pace that suited me and building up confidence in areas of weakness. The process is also very organised with Nik sending weekly progress emails, utilising applications that help visual tricky driving situations junctions, roundabouts etc. I had a 3 month deadline to work towards, Nik very much helped me to meet this deadline sorting out a test at very short notice. Nik is an excellent driving instructor and makes learning to drive an enjoyable experience I can’t recommend him enough.
Suzanne O’Farrell, Stoke Newington
#41 Driving Lessons Barnet
When I decided to learn to drive, my friend advised me to choose a female instructor but I decided to go with Nik because he taught my husband who passed his driving test the first time. Nik is a very patient driving instructor. He is able to observe you and come up with strategies that will help boost your confidence behind the wheels. He also reassures you whenever you get upset about not being able to grasp the subject. I passed my manual driving test the second time. I recommend Nik to anyone planning to learn to drive.
Hagar Boakye, Barnet
#40 Driving Lessons Muswell Hill
I had already had a few driving lessons with a different instructor before I started learning with Nik. I had found driving really difficult and I was very under confident. When I started learning with Nik, my confidence grew massively and I improved so much. Having thought I would never pass my driving test, I ended up passing the test on my first attempt! Nik was always really calm and encouraging – a great driving instructor all round.
Isobel Wick, Muswell Hill
#39 Driving Lessons Muswell Hill
If you are thinking about learning how to drive then Nik is the only driving instructor for the job. He has none of the flaws I have seen in other driving instructors. He has put a lot of time and effort into making your learning experience as quick and easy as possible. His calm nature will suit the most nervous driver. And girls he is a total gentleman. I had ten driving lessons with Nik and enjoyed every one. Finally he is very reasonably priced. You would be crazy not to learn with Nik. Thanks for all your help Nik.
Gavin McDonald, Muswell Hill
#38 Driving Lessons Palmers Green
Nik is a brilliant driving instructor. I enjoyed my driving lessons with Nik from the way he was teaching and he taught me easy techniques. He is patient and calm. He also sent me emails after every driving lesson and the emails showed what I learnt in each driving lesson, which helped me remember the techniques and methods. He also teaches me through apps and maps which helped me understand better. Nik also asked me in every driving lesson what I would like to learn and practise in the lesson and he will prepare these lessons to suit me. He is a brilliant driving instructor and I will recommend him to family and friends.
Sevim Vedat, Palmers Green
#37 Driving Lessons Hornsey
I cannot speak highly enough about the excellence of Nik’s tuition. Whether you’re a first timer, or you’ve had lessons before, Nik is the man you need. He is patient, highly-skilled and gives so many helpful hints and tools to ensure that you will be able to not just pass your test, but to be a truly confident driver once you have. My lessons were so much fun, even during the hard parts. It really was money well spent. Thanks for everything Nik – you’re the best!

#36 Driving Lessons Enfield
I never thought I would be able to drive. However, once I got in the car I realised if I can do it anyone can. His sheer patience and enthusiasm in preparing you for your driving test is admirable. I throughly enjoyed my driving lesson experience. He catered the driving lessons to suit my needs. He would continuously ask me if I would like to practice anything in particular e.g three point turn. This meant that my individual needs were met as he taught me techniques that suited my learning styles. He is always polite, approachable and punctual. I have already recommended Nik to friends and family and I will continue to do so. He is calm and reassuring which assisted me in gaining better understanding on how to manoeuvre the car. He is a fantastic driving instructor well worth every penny.

#35 Driving Lessons Tottenham
Back in June I was looking to take up some driving refresher lessons as I had not been driving for a while and felt nervous about it. After an unpleasant experience with a local driving school, I found Nik following a recommendation on the Haringey online site. Nik is by all means the best driving instructor I have ever had. I wish I had learnt to drive with him in the first place!He is always punctual, very professional and his car is spotless. Nik is very patient, calm and reassuring and really tries to understand what method could work best for your needs, always asking about what areas you would like to cover next and how you felt about it afterwards. I can tell he is very passionate and enthusiastic about his job, He uses ipad apps and google maps to further illustrate and explain his points and help you improve, which I have found very useful. Overall, Nik has managed to restore my confidence to the point that I decided to buy a new car ten days ago and I am now driving again!
Eleonora Romano, Tottenham
#34 Driving Lessons Palmers Green
I should start by saying I cannot recommend learning with Nik highly enough. He is a very calm and thorough driving instructor, who helped build my confidence and, this month, helped me pass my test first time at Wood Green. A few months after wasting a lot of money on an intensive course with another driving instructor, which crushed my motivation and confidence in driving, I found Nik’s site. What initially drew me in was how extremely reasonable the prices were compared to many other driving instructors (saving nearly £10 an hour!) and the number of his students who were passing their driving test first time. But the things that made me want to continue learning with Nik were: – how calm and reassuring he was, even if things went wrong – that he taught me methods that worked best for me (and remembered them) – that he explained things not just by talking through them, but by showing me using apps, google maps etc which helped me to understand better and remember – that he emailed updates after each and every lesson with helpful information – that he always asked if there is anything in particular I would like to learn each time, including situations which would be useful after my test (eg petrol stations, u-turns etc) – that he was very professional, polite and always on time! I have already recommended Nik to friends and family, some who are now booking driving lessons with him next month. I can promise that if you decide to start learning with Nik, you really won’t regret it.
Laura Crouch, Palmers Green
#33 Driving Lessons Wood Green
Learning to drive with Nik was an amazing experience. At the beginning I was very nervous about what’s going to happened next. I couldn’t believe that I was going to drive a car for real but thanks to Nik and his professional manner he really taught me how to drive properly and safely and pass first time. Because it worked for me I would like to recommend Nik as your driving instructor.
Ovidiu Draghicescu, Wood Green
#32 Driving Lessons Palmers Green
Before I started driving with Nik, I didn’t think I would ever be able to drive! I was not at all confident and could get very flustered and stressed when something went wrong. Nik was an excellent driving instructor. He encouraged me to be calm and take things slowly and safely. He helped build my confidence and improve my driving at my own pace. I was not afraid to ask when I wanted to go over certain things. During my driving lessons, Nik had a very interactive and engaging way of teaching me manoeuvres and driving techniques. This really helped me to understand and have better control of the car. Nik is a really friendly driving instructor – always on time and charges extremely reasonable prices for the lessons. I passed my practical driving test first time with only 4 minors today and that’s all thanks to Nik! I would thoroughly recommend Nik to other learners.
Julia King, Palmers Green
#31 Driving Lessons Edmonton
The best in all London maybe in all the UK. Nik is soooo patient, kind and very profesional. He always get in touch with you after the lesson like that you can see your progression week after week. Always try to find the best tactics which can suit you the best. He never lets you down and give you this “je ne sais quoi” which boosts your confidence. DRIVE WITH NIK IS THE BEST!!!!! My only regret I did not get to drive the new car…. I got my driving licence before he bought it.

#30 Driving Lessons North London
After many failed attempts at passing my practical driving test and several driving instructors from well-known and independent driving schools, I had almost given up hope of driving and passing my test. I had tried what felt like almost every driving school in London, spent thousands of pounds on lessons and had learnt to drive with a diverse mix of instructors, all of which had failed to help me pass my test. After 4 years since my last test and last driving lesson, I decided to start driving again and was determined to pass my driving test this time round. I decided to start driving lessons with Nik. I spoke to Nik over the phone and he informed me he had a busy schedule but would try to fit me in. After my first driving lesson with Nik, I could see why he was in huge demand with learners and had a busy schedule, he was amazing. Nik has qualities to suit every learner; he is patient, honest and friendly. It was refreshing to have a driving instructor who was passionate about teaching me to drive and just as determined as I was to help me pass my test as opposed to just wanting to make money, as I had experienced with previous driving instructors. Nik’s main priority was making sure I was a competent, safe driver and that I developed a good driving ability that could be maintained for life, not just to pass my driving test. After only ten lessons, I passed my test first time with Nik due to his professionalism, great instruction and calm and supporting nature. Unlike most instructors, Nik does not provide a generic lesson, his lessons are tailor-made to suit and support each individual learner’s needs. I would recommend Nik to all learners and would even go as far as saying if you have lessons with Nick, you are guaranteed to pass your driving test.

#29 Driving Lessons North London. Driving Lessons Palmers Green
Before beginning my driving lessons, although excited, I was very nervous about learning to drive. From lesson 1 Nik calmly helped me grip the basics and helped me overcome my nervousness and become more confident. Lesson by lesson I enjoyed being taught by a great driving instructor and seeing myself improve so quickly. A fear I always had was making a mistake and being shouted at but it was clear from day 1 that Nik does not work like that. He helped me become a confident, safe driver and to progress quickly to drive well and in turn pass my practical driving test in a matter of months, first time around. It was a fantastic learning experience which I’m going to use and keep with me my whole life. I strongly recommend him as your driving instructor!

After 5 years on motorbikes of all sizes, it was time for me to get a car and license as the family grows. And so came Nik who was higly recommended by one of my best mates. Passed my practical driving test the first time! Patient, understanding and diplomatic as well. Forget the big names in driving tuition. This guy will teach you how to drive not how to pass. I wish all driving instructors are like him. The roads of UK will be so much safer.
Johann Calabig, Bounds Green

Nik was a very patient and knowledgeable driving instructor who really helps to structure your driving lessons to suit you, providing several useful links online to help. I started my driving lessons elsewhere but came across Nik through several good reviews and I would strongly recommend him to anyone.

#25 Driving Lessons Palmers Green
To learn to drive with Nik was a pleasurable experience, I started my driving lessons with a well known driving school but was then recommended Drive with Nik by a friend who had previously passed with Nik. Nik is the most patient driving instructor who teaches to suit your learning style! I would recommend Driving with Nik to anyone!
Sarah Dial, Palmers Green
#24 Driving Lessons Palmers Green
Oh, what can I say about my Driving Instructor, Nik………… If I were to sum it up, I would probably use the one word … AWESOME! Why, because the English dictionary describes the adjective as ‘impressive and excellent’. But mostly, I feel that I’ve learnt driving skills that prepares me to take on the London roads. Nik doesn’t just prepare you for the test but for manoeuvres when dealing with tricky situations and defensive driving skills, which for young drivers may be the only thing that saves you from accidents. As a young driver, I’m now able to judge a cars actions due to its road position. With Nik’s consistent approach to driving, I now feel prepared to drive all over the world and I am truly grateful for my new found knowledge and would urge others to do the same. I also recommend ‘Pass Plus’ in preparation for Motorway driving, it is totally worth it! And if you don’t believe my words then just book a lesson with Nik, I did and now look forward to a confident future when traveling to and from University! Thank you Nik, for all your advice and patience in getting me through my Theory and Practical Driving tests.
Isobel Fraser, Palmers Green
#23 Driving Lessons Cockfosters
Niklas was the perfect Driving Instructor for teaching me how to drive. He is patient and clear when teaching every aspect of driving. I found that I made good progress each driving lesson. Niklas also offers progress sheets which really helped me to understand where I was progressing well, and where I needed to pay more attention to. Additionally, Niklas filmed some lessons which allowed me to go back and look at how I can improve. This all comes at no extra charge. I would recommend Niklas as Driving Instructor to anyone who is eager to learn quickly and without spending too much.
Connor Hanlon, Cockfosters
#22 Driving Lessons North Finchley
I took 40 hours of driving lessons with Nik. I had never driven before. I passed my test on the second attempt (just because I was really unlucky on my first test). Starting from the first driving lesson I understood that I made the right choice in driver instructor selection. Nik is like a real teacher, he covers everything in details. He uses various diagrams (on iPad) to explain manoeuvres, car position, etc. It helped me to feel confident, especially when I just started. Despite the fact that English is not my mother tongue I did not have any difficulties to understand Nik – he calmly rephrased and explained again and again anything I couldn’t understand because of language.I liked that it was easy to schedule the driving lessons during the time which suited me – weekends, evening on weekdays.All driving lessons (20 lessons!) started exactly on time and lasted not less than 2 hours. You get what you pay for, up to the last second or even more sometimes! Another reason for Nik is the price. I called many schools/private driving instructors and his rate was the best. In November/December my wife will start learning driving and I have no doubts which driving instructor I will ask for the lessons. Any questions, drop me email to Gmail’s address to “blackest”.
Semyon Chernyy, North Finchley

I can honestly say my experience of learning to Drive with Nik was brilliant. Instruction was encouraging, helpful and patient.

I shall certainly recommend Drive with Nik to many others.

I learned to drive quite late in life, well past my mid-thirties, and was really nervous about it. I can only echo other users and certainly don’t regret my choice. Thanks to Nik I passed on second attempt (first fail being due to nerves and bad luck), and have since been driving a number of vehicles, both in the UK and on the continent, without any problem. So thanks again, Nik!
Nick Ricci, Tottenham
#17 Driving Lessons Crouch End
Nik was recommended to me by a friend of a friend and I honestly could not have asked for a more attentive driving instructor. He takes his job seriously, but manages to keep things light when needed with his sense of humour. I was a very nervous driver, and for a long time, I honestly thought I would never be writing this. Even when I knew I could drive I was absolutely terrified of the practical driving test. Nik’s sensitivity to this, and relaxed but encouraging attitude on the day really pulled me through and helped me believe I was capable of passing. Thanks Nik!
Jessica Womack, Crouch End
#16 Driving Lessons Wood Green
Thanks Niklas for getting me through my no faults driving test! If you are looking for a driving instructor who is calm and very scientific in his teaching approach look no further. After having had the experience of learning to drive by three previous driving instructors in various parts of London and the midlands, I can honestly say Niklas was the best by miles. He taught me all I needed to know to leave the test with a clean sheet and a big smile on my face. Thank you Niklas!
Nicola Boggi, Wimbledon
#15 Driving Lessons Wood Green
There are not enough compliments to pay Nik, adjectives to describe his mastery of driving or even limits to his working knowledge of the highway code. Nik is quite simply in a league of his own where high standards of teaching is concerned. I cannot remember any driving lesson with Nik that was boring or stressful. He made me feel like a driver as soon as I got into the car and I think that was crucial to me developing the mindset, mannerisms and ethos of a DRIVER, rather than a learner. His knowledge also seemed to rub off on me as I found myself correcting my own mistakes, foward planning out loud and even driving in an eco safe way very early on in my driving lessons. He is always very calm and has a knack for figuring out what works for you. Another credit to his name is his knowledge of the local and surrounding areas. My driving lessons were never crammed into one area, he made sure I drove on a variety of roads in various areas. This helped my confidence to no end and equipped me with the ability to drive on any road. I can’t tell you enough how useful that was for me during my driving test. It meant I never once had to memorise a test route, didn’t have to worry about which driving test centre to choose and could drive confidently on my test. LEARN TO DRIVE WITH NIK!!! There is nothing else to it. I cannot recommend him enough. He is THE driving instructor to beat full stop. Thank you for everything Nik!
Henry Lupaka, Wood Green

Nik was the best driving instructor for me. I’m 17 and was very excited to drive. He didn’t hold me back and we went through everything quickly and easily. Not once did i feel uncomfortable or bored. Nik made it exciting yet informative and not only did I pass my driving test first time, but I learnt to become a good driver. I also completed my pass plus course with him and again was quick and made simple by him. Thanks again Nik!

#13 Driving Lessons Palmers Green
I am a busy mum, working full time with a toddler of 3 years old and there is another little one on its way. I have started taking driving lessons from end of August 2008 from Nik and I passed my practical driving test first time on 20th Feb 09. Nik has been flexible in terms of arranging the driving lessons around my free time. I have never driven before and it took me less than 6 months of perseverance learning from Nik to get my driving licence. Nik gave clear and precise instructions and was able to identify my weaknesses and support me to overcome these and boost my confidence every week. Nik is a First Class Driving Instructor, a very dedicated driving instructor and I would recommend him to anyone looking to learn to drive. I would like to say again a Very Big Thank You to Nik for the hard work and patience in helping me to get my Driving Licence on my First Driving Test.

I very much enjoyed having Nik as my driving instructor. His way of teaching interests me especially the driving lessons on roundabouts and use of mirrors where I did find difficult to put them into practice. His assistance has been invaluable to me.

#11 Driving Lessons Muswell Hill
My experience with Nik as my driving instructor was very positive and I would be glad to recommend him to anyone. He has the patience of a saint and was always helpful and conscientious with his constructive criticism about my mistakes which meant I rarely made them twice. His knowledge of the laws of the road were very impressive and his teaching skill very advanced. I had 30 hours and passed my driving test (first time!) in only 2 months. All in all, a fabulous driving instructor – probably one of the best.

I passed my driving test today and can’t really walk away without giving you my best regards, Thanks Nik for all hard work & time, as it was well worth it! I think you are a great driving instructor and teacher with passing on knowledge and identifying all necessary cautions for driving safety, as we both know, is not that easy. You were spot on with my mistakes and your analysing skills helped me to gain safe driving skills. Thanks and I wish you all the best. I would recommend you to anyone, I don’t want only a licence, I want knowledge of all what can be met in my practice and how to resolve it safe and I’ve got it, thanks.

#7 Driving Lessons Southgate
Coming into driving lessons as quite a nervy learner, I found Nik to be reassuring and calm in his teaching style. Nik is clear and precise with his instructions and makes you feel at ease, especially in more difficult situations. He takes your thoughts and weaknesses into account when deciding how to tackle certain aspects of the driving lessons and he will always ask your opinion on what you feel needs to be done to improve your driving so that weak points can be tackled. Overall I found the driving lessons enjoyable and of a very high standard. I felt each driving lesson I made progress and improved with Nik’s guidance. All in all a great teacher and driving instructor and an enjoyable experience.

Nik is a very patient and intelligent driving instructor. He tailors the teaching to suit your individual needs and does not blindly follow routines.

Niklas is very knowledgeable about driving and has done his research on test routes. He also helped me pick which test centre and at what time to take the test to suit me, which was an added bonus. He is punctual, easy to get on with, and has plenty of interesting anecdotes. Overall, I would highly recommend him.
