I never thought I would pass my driving test with my dsylexia and dsypraxia but today I passed with 3 minors. I'm so thankful for finding Dan, he never let me down, always on time, changed lessons if needed too due to work commitments. Catered to my needs and learning style while giving me the correct amount of instructions, my lessons were structered week to week. Dan is a very patient instructor I am so thankful to have found him, I never thought I would pass and today I did and it's thanks to Dan for believing in me that I could do it.

Loved learning from Dan. Have been driving an automatic for many years, wanted to go in for a manual licence. Quite a journey to unlearn some bad habits that I had picked up along the way, learn new good habits and start using gears. Passed first time thanks to great interactive and personalised teaching. Recommend Dan, you will enjoy his ways of improving your driving skills.

Harwood driving school has been an excellent way for me to learn how to drive in Bolton. After doing my research and contacting several different instructors, this driving school was definitely the best choice I could have made. All of my driving lessons are well planned out, and help me to learn at my own pace. I've been working on getting over what I find difficult and have felt supported the entire way. Dan, the instructor, is very experienced, punctual, and professional. I've recommended this driving school to all of my friends and family, and would definitely recommend them for anyone looking for a great way to learn to drive in Bolton.

The Golf is a great car to learn in and the 2.0 litre turbo is always fun. My driving lessons in Bolton took me through various road and traffic conditions. Dan was very patient and explained things clearly. I enjoyed learning road craft and driving at higher speeds safely over the moors. I am very happy to recommend Dan to friends and family

I feel completely confident on the road and can't wait to get the car I've had my eye on all week. I can't recommend Dan enough for anyone who wants to learn to drive and get a new life skill

Dan is a brilliant driving instructor! With his dedication and encouragement I passed my driving test first time today. He is very friendly, down to earth and tries to be funny – bless him! Right from the word go he put me at ease and gave me confidence in learning to drive. Everything just seemed to flow and he made driving seem simple and easy to understand. I dreaded the manoeuvres, but he went through them step by step until I was fully confident with them. It was the same with dual carriageways – again, he introduced them gradually until I was driving up and down St. Peters way easily. My personal safety when driving on the road is very important to me, I always felt safe in the car with Dan, but I was worried about the risks involved with other drivers and how they would impact on me. However, he showed me how to manage the risks they pose as we learned around Bolton. Highly recommended if you want to learn driving properly, safely and pass first time!

After taking driving lessons in Bolton with Dan Ison, I have passed my driving test on my first attempt with Harwood driving school. I had previously driven with another local driving school and didn't feel I was really getting anywhere, this is when I realised I needed someone professional and highly experienced in order to learn to drive properly. Investing in Dan as your driving instructor is excellent value for your money as Dan is an advanced motorist with National awards and loads of Advanced Driving Certificates, he is the most qualified instructor I could find in Bolton. As a direct result of choosing Dan to teach me to drive I know my driving skills are now to a very high standard, giving me the confidence and security I needed to stay safe on the roads. While I was learning with Dan I cross referenced my training with my friends who were also training with other driving schools, When I mentioned limit points, car stability when cornering, Roadcraft and the correct definitions of Dual carriageways they would often draw a blank. I began to realise quickly his teaching was something much more, different and unique. I always felt secure in my investment with Harwood driving school and am happy to report it has produced valuable results for me. Right from the first driving lesson until the day of my test Dan gave the very best service in terms of being reliable, concise, patient and understanding. Dan's teaching is very Organic and mostly on the move, meaning I spent most of my time learning to drive and not sitting by the side of the road, being trained from script as is often the case with other instructors. Dan is always happy soul and is easy to be around, and I always felt safe and comfortable in his driving tuition car. After each lesson I felt satisfied I had made good progress and was always prepared for my next driving lessons. If you looking for professional driving lessons in Bolton, along with top quality training, good financial value and excellent customer service I highly recommend learning with Dan at Harwood driving School

Thanks Dan for teaching me to drive to a standard where I passed first time today. Dan is a great instructor! I found the whole experience fun and enjoyable. Training is a two way street and Dan's approach worked great with me. During our time on the road dan taught me to deal with a variety of traffic situations, including the ones that can take you by surprise. My overall standard of driving went up very fast with each lesson and we constantly looked for opportunities to improve my driving techniques. I had a lot of input as we tailored the lessons to suit my needs. Dan is always flexible and on time for my driving lessons and never missed a lesson. His punctuality with me is 100%. I always felt safe, settled and confident while driving with Dan and would highly recommend him for lessons around Bolton if you really want to pass first time. My advice: Always book two hour lessons if you can. It's a lot of concentration and thinking and you will get a lot more out of each session than if you did several one hour lessons. Thanks Dan for helping me pass first time. Elizabeth Helps, Bolton

Dan provides a great service, is friendly and always ready to help students out at Harwood driving school. Today I passed my driving test first time in Bolton. Ever since day one, he has been very reassuring giving me positive guidance, is very easy to get along with, while maintaining his high standard of professionalism. At every step of our driving journey and during each lesson he was very helpful in highlighting the steps to take in order to improve my driving skills. Manouvers were given simple to follow instructions and the driving lesson always felt comfortable and safe. In the first lessons he assesses what your current skill level is, in a relaxed way, and then trailers the learning experience to suit you as an individual. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Dan as my driving instructor and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to take up driving lessons. Many thanks, Janey Cribbin

Dan provides an excellent coaching training at service at Harwood driving school. I was a really nervous pupil to begin with as I had never been behind the wheel of a car before. My driving lessons took place around Bolton and Bury in a friendly and motivated environment. Dan identifies your needs and opportunities to develop your confidence and driving skills in a reassuring way. The whole experience was interesting, fun and enjoyable. I can't fault Dan for his commitment to his pupils passing first time like I did today, like my friends have done. I don't think I could of become such a confident and safe driver without the help of a professional driver like Dan. Highly recommend, 10/10 A+++. Collette Taylor - Harwood, Bolton. less ▲

Thanks to Dan I just passed my driving test at Bolton test centre, first time! With only 3 minors. The best thing about learning with Dan is his teaching is structured and organic, the whole experience seemed natural and the driving skills came quickly to me. During our driving lessons around Bolton, Dan made sure everything we did was safe, and because of that I am very confident in my driving ability. Dan was never late and always concentrated on the content of the session. There was no waffling or story telling that my friends say their instructors do. If you learn to drive with Dan and harwood driving school, you'll be learning with a first class instructor who will give you a very high chance of passing first time... Like I did today!

Buzzin!!! Passed my driving test first time at Bolton driving test centre, with only four minors. After previously having two other driving instructors I felt I was getting nowhere fast and I was being overcharged for the quality of training received. So I searched online for driving lessons in Bolton, and came across Dan at Harwood driving school. I decided to give him a call, and straight away I felt at ease. From our first phone call It was clear how knowledgable and professional Dan is. and I was immediately looking forward to restarting my driving lessons. What can I share with you about Dan - Dan is a very calm and patient driving instructor, he is very big on safe driving, but also very understanding and approachable. I have thoroughly enjoyed my driving experience, and if you are looking for a fab instructor to take driving lessons with, I strongly recommend him for the Bolton area.

When deciding to learn to drive, I looked around many driving schools till I found Dan. I passed on the cheap looking driving schools and those with long obviously scripted home written reviews. I find his teaching methods very calming, constructive and progressive. In fact he's the calmest person I've ever met. The advanced driving techniques he teaches are really eye opening when it comes to car control and safety! With every lesson I'm progressing really well and I'll be passing very soon. I would highly recommend Dan if you're looking for driving lessons in Bolton and want to do it right le

I have been driving for over 30 years, although many things had changed since I passed my driving test, the lessons have always been enjoyable and an eye opener, he has a positive attitude and always encouraged me. If you are looking to take advanced driving lessons in Bolton, I would highly recommend you call Dan at Harwood driving school to get the result your looking for. Thanks Dan :)

Before meeting Dan I had quite a few lessons with a well known driving school and felt like I wasn't getting anywhere. I then called Dan at Harwood Driving School and immediately saw the difference in the teaching quality and style. I have just passed my driving test first time today at Bolton with only 3 minor driving faults. During my driving lessons with Dan I felt very safe and in control. He helped to build my confidence back up and was always punctual. But if you drive with Dan you will find his teaching fantastic however his jokes are poor. I have recommended Dan already to my friends and family for driving lessons in Bolton, I would also highly recommend to anyone looking for a decent driving school in Bolton to give Dan a ring. I'm so happy that I chose Dan and you will be to.

After using a famously named driving school in Bolton, I became a little bit disappointed as my instructor never turned up and when they did they were late by around an hour. Dan was recommended to me by a friend as she mentioned he was reliable and enthusiastic about driving. Since taking driving lessons in Bolton with Dan I am making steady progress and I am enjoying my driving lessons. He explains everything clearly and makes sure to go over things again and again until I am competent in the procedure. If you are looking for driving lessons in Bolton I thoroughly recommend Harwood Driving School, run by Dan, you won't be disappointed.

Passed my driving test first time today thanks to Dan! I have really enjoyed my driving lessons in Bolton with Dan, despite his corny jokes he's a really great driving instructor. He's very patient, calm and helped build my confidence whilst learning to drive. I was really nervous when I first started but soon this passed. A lot of people I know have passed first time with Dan - including my partner Steven who recommended me. So if you are thinking of driving lessons in Bolton I highly recommend Dan at Harwood Driving School. He puts so much time into your lessons and wants the best for his students to be sure you pass your driving test first time and drive safely for life. Thanks again Dan :)

I feel very good as I have passed my driving test first time at Bolton test centre after three months of lessons around the Bolton area with harwood driving school. I have saved a fortune because most driving schools can cost a lot more for less quality tuition, as I have had with my previous driving instructor. Dan Is a very experienced Advanced motorist himself with learning to drive safely at heart and not just to pass the test. Each lesson was structured around my personal learning abilities and didn't move on till I was competent in each step. My sister in law found Dan on the internet via his professionally designed website. I have no reservations in recommending Harwood driving school for anyone wanting to take driving lesson in the Bolton area, and who want to pass first time like I did today

To anybody looking for driving lessons in Bolton, I would highly recommend you give Dan at Harwood Driving School a call. After initially giving up my driving lessons due to being overly anxious about getting behind the wheel, I looked to switch driving instructors and luckily booked lessons with Dan. Dan's knowledgeable and calm approach has helped remove my nerves and I have begun to enjoy driving and look forward to my lessons. Dan uses a range of tips and advice in order to make you feel comfortable and more importantly, a safe driver on the road and when completing manoeuvres. If you happen to make a mistake, he has full control of the car with a dual-control feature ensuring your safety when learning. Dan will break down anything you feel stuck on and explain thoroughly to make it simple, along with an instructors manual to go over every aspect of driving clearly. Dan is also very reliable as he turns up on time for every lesson and ensures you get value for your money with each session. Also, the Toyota Auris is an excellent car to take your lessons in, as it feels safe and reliable which makes it easy to drive. Dan is very enthusiastic about his learners and will build your confidence from day one. I highly suggest you choose the Harwood Driving School when deciding to book your driving lessons, you won’t regret it!

I've had a fab time with Dan learning to drive around Bolton. He has helped me enormously with my confidence, thanks to his patience and advance teaching skills. He quickly recognised and explained that I was a kinaesthetic learner and focuses his approach towards this which was brilliant for me. Dan always uses phrases which are easy to remember and visual diagrams to back up my learning experience. Needless to say I have improved each lesson with his tailored approach. I can honestly say I felt safe in every driving situation whilst in the car with Dan. He always turns up on time and never lets me down. I don't personally think that any other driving instructor providing driving lessons in Bolton would of suited me better. I am recommending Dan at Harwood driving school to all my friends who are looking for a driving instructor in Bolton. Thanks for all your help Dan.

After looking around for driving lessons and a good driving instructor in Bolton, I liked the look of Dan's website for Harwood Driving School. As an IT Technician and Web Developer it was clear that this was one of the most professional websites for driving schools in Bolton. After talking with Dan on the phone this professionalism extended itself because after being driven by several other driving instructors it became very apparent that he is very knowledgeable about driving, especially advanced driving. After my poor driving experiances in the past it was refreshing to learn to drive with Dan. He is friendly, patient very calm and conscientious about the lessons. In short his teaching is fantastic, he explained The subject matter perfectly with precision and is never tardy. I'm more than happy to recommend Dan to anybody who is looking for driving lessons in the Bolton local area.

Eventually I settled on Dan at Harwood driving school in Bolton. Dan came up the best in terms of price , recommendations and quality of training. It was the right decision! I passed today first time with zero minors a perfect drive! This is thanks to Dan being an advanced driver having passed some of the hardest driving exams in the UK. He's also a great teacher, who explains things very clearly . I feel totally safe and confident on the roads thanks to you Dan. I can definitely recommend Harwood driving school for top quality driving lessons in Bolton ! Zero minors I'm well chuffed Ciaran Whelan

I had previously been learning with another instructor with little success - but from the first lesson with Dan I gained confidence in my ability and was really pleased with the standard of tuition. Dan takes obvious pride in teaching people not just how to pass the driving test, but also how to drive safely and at a more advanced level. So pleased to pass my test today, and with only one minor!

I'd just like to say a massive thank you to Dan for giving me the confidence and ability to pass my test first time after only a few months of lessons. He strived on improving me as a driver whilst providing a high quality professional service unparalleled by any other instructor in the area. It says it all in the name 'exceptional' and that's exactly what you get. Right down to the choice of car which is comfortable and easy to learn in. It's also not very often you hear the examiner praise the driving instructor as well as the driver after passing.Dan's passion and enthusiasm for his students is evident as he prides himself on developing his students into a high standard of driver. I would 100% recommend harwood driving school because of Dan's patience and professionalism. The structure to his lessons were clear and concise and he gave me a realistic time frame to push me to succeed.

I found Dan to be the perfect tutor, a patient, honest and diligent man, who took great pride in ensuring that I was not only up to test standard, but that I would also be safe for the many road miles that lie ahead of me.Thanks again Dan for the perfect start to the New Year, it's been a pleasure! less

Just an email to say 'thank you' to Harwood for helping me pass my driving test at the first attempt. My instructor always explained everything really well - which helped me pass my driving test after having only 7 hours of lessons with him. Most of all, thank you for being so flexible with timings which helped me book an earlier test date; I was desperate to at least experience the test as soon as possible, and being able to pass it with 5 minor faults on the first attempt was a real bonus. Having taken 2 lessons prior with the AA driving school in Bolton (near work), I can definitely say Harwood are far better and I would always recommend you to anyone looking to take lessons. Thanks for everything
