Why Choose Brendan Short Driving School?
Had an extremely enjoyably and comfortable experience learning to drive with Brendan, extremely warm vibes and a great attitude!”
Lewis Johnson
I did my driving lessons with Brendan and he was incredible! From the get go he put all his attention to the task at hand. He listened to what I had to say, and made sure to ask me when I felt confident rather than assuming I was confident enough. We had awesome conversations in the car during lessons so that it wasn’t all business or awkward, and I passed my test on the first go with him as my instructor! Highly recommend Brendan to anyone who needs an instructor!”
