I had completely lost hope in ever being able to drive after almost 4 years of anxiety from driving lessons & failed test attempts.
Sonny made me feel instantly at ease & Kept me feeling positive through the lessons
I’m extremely grateful for his patience & for having faith in me when I was struggling!!
I am now PASSED & in my brand new car just after a 15hr Intensive course.
Thank you SO SO much Sonny!! Couldn’t have done it without you. x

Sunny was my assigned driver and as soon as I stepped in the car in my first lesson, we clicked straight away. Sunny is a great instructor, he makes you feel calm and relaxed in the car, he pushes you, but not to the point where you are over stressed/not taking in information, he takes his time and his teaching methods are great, really explaining things. We was rushed for time, thinking I’d have to do more hours but we got it done in the 15 and I passed first time with only 5 minors. I would recommend sunny to anyone looking to do there lessons, I honestly don’t think I would’ve passed other wise! Thank you Sonny!!!!!
Being a driver who had taken a very large hiatus (of around 7 years) I knew driving was going to be no easy feat for myself. However, through Sonny’s calm and reassuring approach, he was able to boost my confidence and skill level to allow me to pass first time round. Sonny and Driving Point are a perfect combination to help people turn you into a skilled, confident and road worthy driver. I couldn’t recommend them any more!
Sonny was an amazing instructor. He was friendly and very good at getting the right results in time for my test. He wants his students to pass first time and therefore he does push us but it is done effectively and he makes sure that we are comfortable the whole time. I would recommend him to anyone learning to drive. I passed 1st time with 2 minors. Thank you very much.
Best driving instructor going, sunny made me feel so comfortable in the car I’m actually going to miss my driving buddie! Recommend 10/10 🙂
Sonny is so understanding and honest I wouldn’t of passed without his help and guidance. Definitely recommend him for any sort of driver starting out on the road!
Sonny is as amazing instructor as he is a person!! I had previously been through 2 driver instructors before Sonny and neither of them were nearly as committed and understanding!!
he is so funny and kind and makes you feel totally relaxed and comfortable while driving. I went from being a nervous driver with Zero faith in myself to a driver who passed first time with Zero minors!!! sunny always believed in my right from the start and that belief definitely made a difference in the test! thanks for everything Sonny x
Sonny was an incredible instructor, helped boost my confidence with driving and within the 4 lessons we had for my intensive course managed to get my driving to pass rate standards!! Ever so grateful.
Sonny was a lovely instructor who made me feel confident with my driving. I moved to him from another instructor and learnt so much from him. He is a genuine man and wants to see his pupils succeed. When the test came around he kept me calm and reassured me. I passed with 3 minors all thanks to Sonny.
Had a great experience learning with Sunny! So patient and really makes sure you’re ready for your test. No problems at all. I was really nervous having had 20 hrs prior with another instructor and done virtually no manoeuvres but I passed 1st time with 2 minors. Will recommend to all my friends looking to learn to drive. Thank you Sonny -see you on the roads!
I passed within 2 weeks, very good driving school.💯🎉

Sonny is an amazing instructor and I cannot recommend him enough. When I didn’t believe in myself Sonny was there to do it for me. Having a tight time limit to work by I was able to pass first time with Sonny’s help. Having gone from a nervous driver who didn’t know the basics nor how to operate a car I was guided through my lessons to become a confident and first time passer. Thanks again Sonny, we did what I thought to be impossible, you’ve been the best!
Sonny is an excellent instructor. He is knowledgeable and friendly, which makes you feel relaxed whilst you learn all you need to know about driving safely. Also the best value intensive course I could find in Northampton. Would highly recommend.
Sonny is a Great teacher refined my driving and gave me more confidence and passed first time.
Sunny was a great help, ironing out all of my bad habits, tightening my manoeuvres and getting me passed first try.
Sunny is a good instructor would definitely recommend him when i first started driving with him I didn’t have the confidence but after a short while with sunny teaching me I became more confident and managed to pass first time with 4 minors thanks Sunny and good luck with the Future!!
Fantastic instructor, gives clear instructions and not only teaches you to pass the test but also teaches you to drive safely beyond your test. Would definitely recommend him.
Sonny was a great instructor and really helped me. I managed to pass first time! Would definitely recommend!!
Sonny was very patient and understanding whilst I learnt to drive, I was planning on having an intensive course with him but circumstances with my job meant I was unable to do this so had to have weekend lessons instead! I learnt in 2 months and passed first time with 1 minor!! Would 100% recommend! Thank you Sonny!
If it wasn’t for Driving Point i wouldn’t have passed First time with NO! faults. Massive thank you to Sonny who pushes you to be the best. If i could go back and choice a different driving instructor i wouldn’t, I believe Sonny is the best around Kettering as I was in contact with a lot of different instructors
I would 100% recommended sonny as an instructor, I only had such a short time with him but he made me feel confident and comfortable from the start, I don’t think I would’ve got a pass with 0 faults if it wasn’t for him believing in me and pushing me to drive to the best of my ability and then pushing me even further. Definitely would say to use.
Sunny is the best instructor I had… having many instructors none of them got me as confident as sunny did. Passed first time and I know I couldn’t have done it without sunny’s help, he was patient and pushed me to get to a safe driving level where I felt comfortable and confident. Thank you so much, I highly recommend sunny to anyone looking for an intensive course.
Sonny is the best instructor by far! I would highly recommend, especially if you need to pass quickly. I did a 20 hour intensive course with very little experience and managed to pass first time! He goes through everything in good detail and really pushes you to be your best. Can’t thank him enough!
Went from 5 test failures with a different instructors to a pass in 3 weeks with 5 minors.
Pushes you hard to do well really cares and wants you to do well.
Sonny was a brilliant driving instructor, he’s patient, friendly and calm.
His methods were fantastic and easy to understand which was exactly what I was looking for when I dove in at the deep end and booked my test before starting the 30 hours of intensive lessons.
I would highly recommend Sonny to anyone! looking to learn to drive.
Excellent teacher, calm, professional and willing to go at a pace that suits you. passed with one minor and would definitely recommend to anyone in the future.
Would really recommended sunny, great driving instructor and really friendly! Was great at fitting round my commitments and got me to pass with 0 minors in less than 2 months! Thanks for everything 🙂
As a nervous driver who hated getting in a car, Sonny made the world of difference. He’s a patient instructor who continues to make sure your knowledge of the road and driving is perfected. As a result I passed with only 3 minors and I am over the moon with the results. I definitely recommend Driving Point!
Sonny was a great instructor and a lovely guy. He has great attention to detail and really helps iron out any silly mistakes and I felt a more confident, independent driver with Sonny than previously. I passed with 3 minors after 25 hrs with Sonny and I owe a lot of thanks to him for helping me achieve that!
Sonny has been an amazing instructor and has helped me build confidence in driving step-by-step which resulted in me passing first time! He’s is a very patient, determined and hardworking instructor who knows everything to do with learning to drive on the road (his explanations are very easy to understand!). Once again, thank you so much Sonny for believing in me and pushing me to become a better and safer driver.
Sonny is amazing, having come to him from another instructor and so many hours down the road I was sceptical all together but from the off he put me at ease and has such a calming effect I finally felt I had a chance of passing my test and sure enough I passed on my test first time and it’s all down to him seeing a confidence in me that I couldn’t. Thank you so much Sonny.
Sunny really helped me pass my test, I passed first time with him and only had 2 minors. He gave great guidance and help on how to drive and how to pass my test. He worked around my hours and availability, he is a great guy and easy to get on with, couldn’t ask for a better instructor, I would definitely recommend sunny to anyone looking for an instructor, overall I’m very pleased with his teaching!
Just passed my test first time with 0 faults thanks to the brilliant help I received from my Driving point instructor Sonny. I definitely recommend driving point if you looking to do some lessons.
Sunny is an amazing instructor, really friendly and makes you feel relaxed while you’re on the road. Explains things really well and teaches driving in a very safe and fun manner. Had great laughs along the way, definitely recommend!
I would highly recommend sunny as a driving instructor. I took a 15 hour course and passed first time with 4 minors. He teaches you every single thing you need to know and too a high standard ready for your practical!! If you’re thinking about booking with Sunny do it you won’t regret it!!
I did a 10 hours intensive course with Sonny, I had 3 previous instructors before and failed my test twice. Sonny helped me go over the things I struggled with and explained it far easier than what others taught me, he really puts you in place if you do something wrong which in my opinion, really helped because…I ended up passing my test! I was so thrilled, he is the nicest guy and definitely a good laugh.
I strongly recommend Sunny as driving Instructor to all would be learners who want to pass their driving test in first attempt.I was not that much lucky earlier.To be honest i have wasted 40 hours plus my money on LDC but i get nothing result failed two times and lost my confidence to get through this driving anymore.But it was my luck someone suggest me to have training from Sunny once and then go for test and i did same.From the very first day with sunny i realise I have learnt nothing from 40 hours and after that i just took 10 hours training with Sunny and i cracked my test and even got complement from examiner too about my good driving.I am thankful to Sunny for his cooperation,guidance and friendly behaviour and knowledge he provided me during my practice.Sunny is a true example of teacher who plays the role of guide ,friend and philosopher in learner’s life.
A massive Thank you to Sonny!!! Passed with just a few minors!!! This guy is a incredible instructor patient and builds your confidence in yourself and belief that anything is possible!! He goes at your pace to learn and will make sure you are 100% ready before you go for your test massive Thank you again Sonny will be booking a pass plus with you soon!!!
Book with driving point and save your time , intensive really is the best. Sunny is a great instructor very patient and thorough, everything you need to know to pass first time 🙂
Elena Aurora Mir(17/04/2018)
A big thank you! I am really happy that I passed today with just 3 minors. Lots of help from Sonny and his patience worth a million. I couldn’t do this without his guidance. Once again a massive thank you!very pleased and I will always recommend Driving Point to learners!
Couldn’t have asked for a better instructor; Suni was professional, friendly and a great teacher. When I struggled with something, he looked at it in a different way until I fully understood how to operate the car, deal with the roads and not be intimidated by other road users. I highly recommend the intensive course and Driving Point for anybody that wants to get behind the wheel.
After 40 hours, I was nervous but fully prepared, and managed to pass first time with only 2 minors. It speaks volumes for how good an instructor I had, that I knew exactly where I made those mistakes and can improve my driving immediately.
Thank you very much for everything!
I was a very nervous driver and I tried lots of different driving instructors over the years and just couldn’t stick with one.After starting an intensive course with sonny, I managed to pass my test with a few minors! He is a great instructor and let’s you learn at your own pace. Would definitely recommend! Thanks so much sonny!
I passed my driving test on the 13/2/2019 with only 5 minors, sonny is a great instructor, he is friendly and he explains in a way that you can understand that suits you as a learner and I would recommend him to my friends, thank you again sonny
Having failed a while ago with a different instructor I decided to try a 20 hour intensive course and I am so pleased I did because today I passed my test! Sunny is a great, he puts you at ease, has a lot of patience and is a very good instructor. I definitely recommend him.
I passed my driving test yesterday and still can’t believe it! I wouldn’t have passed this quickly if it wasn’t for the great intensive course that Driving Point provides. Sonny was a great instructor and no matter how I was feeling we would always end up having a good laugh on my lessons. His way of instructing was easy to understand and in the end allowed me to perfect my manoeuvres so that I went into my test with a real confidence to pass, thanks Sonny!
Passed today with Sonny, can honestly say I’d never have passed without him and I’d recommend anyone to use him, he goes way above and beyond and it felt like he took a strong personal interest in my learning and passing. Took me from being miles away to passing my test after about 12-14 hours, which is unbelievable. His techniques and tips are easy to remember and understand, simplifies everything. Thanks a lot mate!!!!
I am super happy today passing my driving test with only 4 minors after a 20 hours intensive course. Thank you so much sunny you are the best instructor I’ve had by far and will definitely recommend you to other people. See you on the road 🙂
OMG ! I have just passed my test today . This is the most happiest moment of my life . Sonny is amazing and the best instructor by far . I thought i could do it on my own but still needed to stick to his ideas and Technics and it was a straight forward pass. Thanks Sunny . Thanks Driving point!
|I passed my test with only 1 minor after a 40 intensive course. Sonny is a great instructor who works at your own pace. We had to cut a lesson short due a brief panic from myself and he completely understood and worked around my schedule.|
I passed my test today first time with only two minors after my 30 hour course with sunny….I loved my lessons with sunny because he taught me in a way that I fully understood everything I was doing which made me feel much more confident with my driving. I didn’t pick everything up straight away but sunny was great and after just three weeks of lessons I’ve been able to pass 🙂 thank you so much to driving point and especially to sunny! I couldn’t be happier, would absolutely recommend to everyone!!!!!
Sonny is a great driving instructor and a really nice guy. I didn’t feel nervous with him and he made it really easy to understand where I was going wrong. I done 30hours spread over 4 weeks and passed 1st time with 4 minors…… says it all really I would definitely recommend sonny.
Sunny had instructed me so well that it allowed me to pass my practical test first time! Sunny had insured that we had covered everything in the 30 hours of lessons I had booked. This meant that I felt prepared and confident enough in my ability to go to the test. I am so glad that I chose Driving Point as the service that was provided was brilliant for the affordable price. Sunny and Driving Point went above and beyond for me, I really appreciate it. Brilliant company, I highly recommend.
What can I say about Sunny? The man is an absolute legend, I started with no confidence what so ever and he built me up and worked his time around me so that I passed first time. Can not thank him enough, highly recommended great instructor!!!
At the start of the intensive course I was a little nervous, however Sunny soon made me feel confident. I passed, with 2 minors after 20 hours of lessons.Thank you DrivingPoint!
Sunny is an amazing instructor! I was very nervous with no confidence and within just a few hours he had changed that completely. He was so flexible around my crazy schedule and was really patient with me. He really made me feel at ease and often made me laugh til it hurt! I have finally (after putting it off for 12 years!) learnt to drive and passed my test and I couldn’t be more grateful to Sunny! Thankyou! 🙂
I did a 25 intensive course, and Sonny was amazing, he was flexible with times, easy to get along with, offered lots of needed advice. I passed very quickly which is what I hoped for, I couldn’t have done it with out him
I took a 15 hour course with sonny and passed with 5 minors. He is so easy going and makes you feel comfortable and not stressed at all. Really don’t think I could’ve done it without him! Thanks a lot Sonny 🙂
Sunny as an instructor to recommend with a course tailored to me he worked with me and turned me from a nervous driver to a confident driver with a pass I can’t thank you enough sonny I will be recommending you to all friends and family thank you again.
Sunny has been an absolute diamond, his hard work and determination really paid off, resulting in a pass today. His hard work ethic is outstanding despite having to tailor his days around my busy work schedule, he always found a way. Thank you again, given the circumstances I couldn’t have done it without you.
I took a 20 hour intensive course as wanted to pass as quick as possible, Sonny is brilliant !! very calm and patient and trains you really well in a way you will find easy. Great person who will make you feel calm and relaxed straight away and has a passion for his job. I passed first time with 1 minor and this was all down to Sonny can’t thank him enough for his help. would definitely recommend to anyone…
I took a 5 hour intensive course with Sonny after struggling to pass with my previous instructor due to nerves. Sonny made me feel really calm and relaxed. He made everything seem so simple which was very reassuring. I would definitely recommend and I can’t thank him enough for helping me finally pass.
I came from having a full bike license and sonny made the transaction from bike to car easy. He’s patient, understanding and will find the best way to teach you as an individual. I passed first time, but most of all I really enjoyed my time driving with sonny and will have to now get used to being in a car with out him in the passenger seat.
Just wanted to say a big thanks to sonny for getting me through my lessons and helping me pass my test with 3 minors. I was a complete newby to it all and did the 30 hour course sonny was really flexible with hours and helped me to be the best driver I could be thanks again sonny !Sam Vaughan(16/12/16)
I really really enjoyed my lessons with Sonny, and now I’ve passed, I feel pretty sad that the lessons are over! He pays lots of attention to detail, because he wants you to be the best driver you can be, and he’s incredibly patient with you when you need things explaining. He’s also so easy to talk to. Overall, a great experience!!!
Sunny is an amazing teacher!! He is very patient and explains things in a way that you just it first time!!! I had a ten hour intensive course and came to him worried and nervous about passing and learning the manoeuvres. He had me doing the manoeuvres near enough perfect on day one of the course and by the second day and was confident. On the third day I went on to pass my driving test with 0 minor faults!!!! That is all thanks to him and his wonderful advice. Sunny is a credit to the driving Instructor world and I wish you all the best for the future!!!!!
Sunny was a fantastic instructor who balanced teaching with friendship making the atmosphere in the car so easy to work with. His constant guidance and thorough explanations made it extremely clear what had to be done. I passed with 3 minors.
Lyndsey Gibson (22/08/16)
I passed with 1 minor because Sunny is a great teacher. He is thorough and makes driving easy to understand. If you do not get to grips with something, he finds different ways of trying to help you understand. He also make sure you are comfortable, not nervous and calm as you can be which is the most important thing. Thank you Sunny for all the help.
Mitchell Williams (09/08/16)
Sunny is a great instructor, helped me all the way through and made all lessons work around my busy schedule. He allows you to go at your own pace but also gets you to a good level in a short period of time. Nice guy and would recommend to anyone.
Kathryn Elizabeth (25/07/16)
I just want to say that I am extremely pleased with my experience with Sunny. I booked 35 hour intensive course and I manage to pass first time with only 2 minor fault. Sunny is extremely good at attention to detail and made sure I was as prepared as I could be, whilst also being great fun to talk with. He did not just teach me to pass my test he taught me how to drive and now I’m qualified I shall still be hearing his voice in my head guiding me to be an excellent driver. Thank you so much Sunny – you are awesome and I would recommended you to everyone.
Aliona Barova (26/03/16)
I moved to Driving Point from different driving instructor and it was by far the right choice. Sunny taught me in a patient and kind manner and was very flexible.I have enjoyed our lessons very much and I loved his professional approach in explaining the details as they are really important to know to pass the practical test. After 2 weeks of lessons I passed first time and can’t thank Sunny enough. I would highly recommend him and Driving Point to anyone thinking about learning to drive. Thank you again for teaching me – you were great.
Oliver Baily (31/03/16)
Sunny is a calm, patient instructor who delivers his well planned lessons thoroughly and in great detail. In just 20 hours he took me from a novice driver with relatively no experience to passing my test first time.
Extremely flexible with his lessons times, fitting the student into their own timetable. Even explaining complicated junctions or roundabouts in your test area to ensure you are fully ready to pass your test first time.
I cannot recommend Sunny and Driving Point highly enough to any learner driver!
Jade Pettit (14/03/16)
I am very pleased with the service Driving Point and Sunny provided as he did as best he could with helping me understand how to drive. He wasn’t too persistent, and he didn’t push me too hard so that I gave up. I passed on the second test that I did and I thank Sunny very much for that.
