Graeme had the experience, patience and personality to get me through a difficult learning curve and was a consistently excellent mentor.

" I want to say a big THANK YOU to Barbara, who is a great instructor, reliable and inspiring. I was scare of driving at the beginning. Barbara soon me build my confidence and soon I started enjoy the weekly lessons. She is very knowledgeable and professional. Her instructions are clear and concise, and she always tells me the rationale behind a rule. She was super patient when I repeat mistakes. In order to improve my awareness, which is my biggest problem, she gave me some particular exercises regarding zebra crossing, speed limit and other road signs. These exercises were very helpful for me to pass the test. Without hesitation I would definitely recommend Barbara as a driving instructor. "


Let me start by saying a huge thank you to Graeme I absolutely enjoyed my driving experience with graeme from my first lesson to the day I passed my test he made it very very easy for me qualities that separates him from others his professionalism, dedication to his work and honesty! I cant thank Graeme enough for his massive help! I highly recommend him to anyone! Absolute Legend

I am very happy with the driving instruction I received from Barbara. I passed my driving test first time with only one minor! Barbara is professional, thorough and approachable. I always looked forward to my driving lessons and can highly recommend Barbara to my friends and family.

Mariella Kingston

Thank you so much Graeme for making my learning to drive easy, relaxed and fun. Because of him I was able to pass first time. I have already recommended him to a few of my friends and will continue to. I am over the moon, thank you so so much.

Charlee, Teddington

I'm Rhys, 20. I've been learning with Graeme for a while and he is an amazing driving instructor, he is really relaxed and definitely makes you feel as if you're at home while teaching you at the same time. He will never push you beyond what you're capable of but will make sure you gain the driving skills you need to be confident on your test and when you're driving your own car. I would highly recommend anyone to learn with Graeme, whether you've never drove before or just need to practice as you're a bit rusty. He is very consistent with lessons and will always make sure you feel completely comfortable behind the wheel. I've had a great time with Graeme and passed my test today. I will definitely be using him to gain some advanced skills.

Rhy, Isleworth

Graeme is an amazing instructor who gave me so much confidence whilst driving and helped me improve each lesson. Never felt under pressure with him and with his help i passed my test! :)

Rana, Ham

The lessons i had with Graeme were really good. He is a very nice guy and a very good driving instructor! Would definitely recommend him!

Joe, Kingston

I would like to thank Graham. When i was in lessons i found them relaxing. As he's patient, clear with instructions, punctual and good fun to talk to without being distracting! Most of all i passed first time. With this in mind i would highly recommend Graham!!

Felix, Teddington

My lessons with Graeme were really good, he's a really professional and good teacher. I would recommend him to anyone.

Joe, Kew

I would highly recommend Union School of Motoring. My instructor was extremely helpful, friendly and professional and made everything as comfortable as possible for me as a very nervous learner. Although I started the process feeling that I would never learn to drive confidently, I did pass (at my second attempt) and feel that Graeme did everything he could to make it all as smooth as possible for me. We also had a good laugh while I learnt and I always felt at ease with him. In short, I would happily recommend Union School of Motoring to any learner driver. I've already told my sister she should give them a try!

Lucy, Richmond

Graeme is an excellent driving instructor. As a young driver I particularly appreciated how friendly and approachable he was. He gave me the skills and confidence I needed to pass my test first time!

Edward, Hampton

Graeme is a professional, highly skilled driving instructor. But he is also a throughly genuine and great fella which made the whole process of learning to drive a really enjoyable one. He quickly helped me to iron out any problems I had during the learning process and was also very easy to deal with if I needed to change lesson times. Needless to say I passed first time. Many thanks Graeme

Ian, Surbiton

Graeme has been consistently patient with me since the start. His instructions are clear and concise, and when paired with his easy-going character; his lessons are comfortable and enjoyable. He also gauges your ability well and challenges you, resulting in minimal time wasted. I would highly recommend Graeme to both beginners and those who have had previous experience, (like myself). A very happy newly qualified driver.

Eddie, New Malden

Couldn't thank graeme enough for getting me though my test! passed first time, easy going,friendly & reliable. Highly recommended!!

Emily, Stanwell

Graeme is a fantastic teacher-both extremely professional and easy to get along with. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to learn to drive, I believe you would be hard pushed to find anyone better!

Kamlesh, Kingston

I have just passed my driving test. I never thought this would be possible but luckily I found the best instructor out there. Grahame is the most patient, motivational, encouraging ,laidback instructor I could have wished for.
I started my lessons in april 2014 and passed in sept 2014. From day one Grahame has had complete faith in me and I actually looked forward to my lessons each week. My confidence grew and on the day of my test I truly believed I could pass and this was all down to Grahame. He always encouraged me and we had a laugh at the same time. He was born to do this job and doesn't miss a trick, which kept me on my toes and made me want to do better each time. Apart from being a great teacher, I found the cost very competitive and didn't feel like I was breaking the bank.
If you are looking to start driving lessons, I honestly couldn't recommend union school of motoring more and if you are lucky enough to get Grahame as your instructo,r then you will no doubt pass like me.

Sally, Richmond

Learning to drive with Graeme was an absolute pleasure. He helped me to quickly gain confidence on the road and remained patient with me, even when i was making mistakes that in reality i had become too good to have been doing. His understanding of how a learner driver thinks means that you never have to be afraid to ask questions and his constant happy and bubbly mood means lessons are always enjoyable. Graeme helps you to develop to a more than capable level and it meant i passed first time with only 4 minors- something i never thought would be possible when i first started learning. I would be more than happy to recommend him to a friend and definitely encourage you to book your lessons with him and his company.

Bona, New Malden

This morning i took my driving test and passed with just 2 minors!! i cant thank graeme enough for helping me get there. Many thanks graeme for all your help.

Charlotte, Mitcham

Having not driven in 6 years, I booked some refresher lessons with Graeme (he was recommended by a friend), and I am so happy that I did. Thanks to him I got my driving confidence back really quickly and for this, I cannot thank him enough. He is friendly, patient and knows exactly what to say and do to make you feel confident behind the wheel and enjoy driving. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending him! Thanks again!

Eleanor, Wimbledon

Graeme was recommended to us via a friend after a bad experience with another driving school. He promptly took control and got my older son through his driving test with ease.
My daughter followed and swiftly passed her test and my younger son has just passed his test.
Graeme is friendly, approachable and a fantastic instructor. He has a very direct and practical approach and offers excellent advice. He relates to the individual and has produced 3 very competent drivers who with his help all passed first time.
I would thoroughly recommend his services to anyone, of any age wanting to learn to drive.

Sara Dumville, Teddington

'It took me over 10 years to get round to booking my first driving lesson. Graeme came highly recommended, and I wasn't disappointed. I enjoyed driving and the lessons from the very beginning thanks to Graeme's professional, clear and calm teaching style, and his sense of humour. Greame was also really patient and flexible when I had to arrange driving lessons around childcare. I would recommend The Union School of Motoring to anyone!'

Emily, Ashford

There are not enough words to express my gratitude to Graeme. In his job as a driving instructor he is very skilled and professional,but at the same time he is a good friend: he makes you feel at ease, comfortable, he supports and reassures you. I find Graeme very nice, helpful and patient. At the beginning he helped me overcome my confidence, till i finally passed my test, I would like to recommend Graeme to anyone who wants to drive as he is a great and reliable driving instructor.

Leena, Sutton

Yesterday morning i took my driving test and passed with only 4 minors!! i can't thank Graeme enough for helping me get there. I found learning to drive very frustrating and difficult at times but he was very patient and reassuring with me that i could do it! And i did! Highly recommend Union driving school!

Jennifer, Tolworth

I used this driving school and passed my theory test and practical test at the first attempt. Thanks to excellent tuitions given in a friendly and patient manner. No hesitation in recommending you to this driving school.

Mrs Willis, Surbiton

Graeme took me under his wing after a bad experience with a previous instructor and helped restore my confidence in driving. His techniques are simple and effective. As someone who was an anxious driver before, Graeme put me at ease throughout the whole experience. If you wish to learn, I implore you to try Graeme first.

George, Hanworth

I can not thank Graeme from Union enough for helping me through my driving test. I found them both flexible, friendly and fun!! Thanks so much!!

Andy, Richmond

Graeme, founder of the union school of motoring, found a fantastic balance between amicability and expert instruction. I passed first time with 1 minor over the space of 2 months at a very competitive price, and I had a great time while doing it. He's a champion!

James, Walton

i would like to thank Graeme for being a great driving instucor and helping me pass first time with only 3 minors :) I think Graeme is a great instructor , he was very flexible with times and also calm and patient. I recommended him to my cousin who also passed her test and i will recommend him to others that want to learn to drive. :) :)

Sarah, Richmond

Graeme- very flexible when booking or needing to change driving lessons. He was calm,patient and helpful. Would definitely recommend to other friends and family. Thank you Graeme!

Lena, Richmond

I cannot thank Graeme enough for helping me pass my driving test. Right from the first minute you meet Graeme, he creates a comfortable and easy environment which makes for a very pleasurable driving lesson. He encouragingly coaxed me out of bad habits i had developed overtime (driving in another country) and made to the point suggestions of how to improve my driving. Graeme is professional and accommodating and i cannot recommend him highlt enough to anyone considering availing of his services and assistance.

Nicolette, Richmond

I really can't recommend Union School of Motoring highly enough. I found Graeme to be an extremely knowledgeable, patient and proficient instructor who was also very accommodating to my restrictive working hours. I passed my first test since joining Union with just 4 minor faults, and was able to overcome test day nerves with the knowledge that I was as well prepared for the test as I could be. Thanks again!

Robert, Richmond

I could not recommend Graeme highly enough. His relaxed yet focused approach to teaching enabled me to pass my test first time. Anybody looking for a painless, cost-effective method to learn need look no further than here.

George, Morden

I found Graham to be reliable and an excellent instructor who saw me through from being a complete beginner to passing my practical test on the first attempt this morning. I would highly recommend Union to anyone, for value for money and an enjoyable learning experience!

Luke, New Malden

Graeme was my second driving instructor, recommended to me by a friend and I wish I had him from the beginning! I had a great experience learning to drive with Graeme, he was very patient making me feel at ease when driving. All of Graeme's advice and help definitely played a huge part in enabling me to pass first time!! I am very grateful!! And would recommend him to anybody!

Sahra, Ham

'I found out about this driving school because my boyfriend and a few of his family members had learnt to drive with Graeme in the past. I was terrified at the thought of me being in the drivers seat but after passing my test, I am so pleased that it is done. I would highly reccomend Graeme to anyone learning to drive! Thanks'

Amber, Feltham

The BIGGEST THANKYOU to Greame for being an AMAZING instructor and a great person. Always put my mind at ease when nerves took over,VERY patient,kind and helpful, with a great sense of humour too!! I would definitely recommend him to anyone. thanks to him i passed first time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:)

Ben, Ashford

I was incredibly lucky to find Graeme as a driving instructor. He was incredibly helpful in accommodating lessons around my bonkers schedule, which was a huge help.
Graeme's very calm, patient and incredibly knowledgable. You'll be surprised how quickly he gets your confidence up and you'll notice an improvement after every single lesson.
Importantly, he's a genuinely nice chap and I expect we'll stay in touch!
However, talk is cheap and the proof of the pudding is in the eating.
I passed on my first attempt.

Ed, Isleworth

I can honestly say I couldn't have wished for a better driving instructor and learning experience. Graeme always made the lessons enjoyable, so chilled out and I always felt at ease! The lessons were productive yet fun, learning something new every week and working on the things I wasn't so confident with. Flexibility was something else I was so impressed with, Graeme always made sure the lessons were at a convenient time for me. I wish Graeme the best of luck with Union in the future and would happily recommend his services to any of my friends/family! :D

Seren, Richmond

Learning to drive with Graeme was one of the most pleasant and enjoyable experiences I could have wished for. He does not rush you into anything you do not feel confident with. He will always adapt to your needs and pace of learning and always be a source of encouragement as well as a reassuring figure while on the roads. Graeme is the reason that I was able to pass so quickly and first time.

Michael, Cobham

I past my driving test this morning, I'm over the moon!! Thanks a lot to Graeme who got me there. He's an excellent driving instructor, very patient and supportive. His positive and humorous attitude always helped me to remain calm. He doesn't mess you about or waste your time. I would 100 percent recommend him I've had 2 previous driving instructors in the past and Graeme by far is the best one. Thanks again Graeme! Can't wait to be on the road in my own car!! :D

Kenna, Richmond

I passed my test a couple of weeks ago after having lessons with Union. Having used several other driving schools in the area I can honestly say that Union is the best out there. The lessons were challenging yet fun and the instructor was very patient and supportive, we also had a good laugh along the way! I genuinely don't think I would have passed as quickly or easily with another school and am glad I decided to stick with Union. Really great service, would definitely recommend.

Sam, Morden

Graeme is an exceptional instructor, he is clam and professional during the lessons but also incredibly patient and honest. He made something daunting like learning to drive into a very pleasant experience, I thoroughly enjoyed his company for the duration of our lessons. It is my pleasure to recommend Graeme as a driving instructor.

Shen, Richmond

I would like to express my appreciation for Union Driving School. My instructor Graeme patient but had a real knowledge of mechanical engineering which aided my understanding and helped my driving. I feel that the lessons were very good value for money since my driving definately improved every lesson, but the lessons themselves were also good fun which helped to remove any nervousness I had been feeling. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Greame and Union Driving School to any prospective drivers. Many Thanks :)Thank You!

Freya, Richmond

Graeme is a fun & enjoyable instructor to have. He tells you straight where you need to improve and work on within driving, he also found any time he could to help me pass my test, sticking by me after a few goes at my test. A good laugh and enjoyable lessons to have. He's a top instructor to have and will get you your licence when and whenever you want. Again many thanks for your teaching!

Joe, Richmond

Graeme was great helping me pass my test, he helped me gain confidence with my driving and pointed out I did not need more lessons but to handle my nerves when sitting the exam. Thanks Graeme!

Christian, Barnes

I had a great experience learning to drive with Graham, he was the second instructor I had while learning to drive.
I wish I had Graham from the very start, he made me feel very at ease while out on the road. He was great at simplifying the challenges of driving & great at helping me over come the struggles I had with roundabouts.
Graham helped me gain confidence on the road after I felt so useless after my first instructor.
Graham is a friendly calm patient. honest instructor, who will support you all the way to passing your test.
Learning to drive with Graham helped me pass my driving test the first time.
He was such a support leading up to the test & was there to support afterwards.
I would highly recommend Graham to teach anyone of any age or ability.

Lisa, Richmond

Graeme took the time to understand why I was learning to drive, and how best to fit the training around my work and family commitments.
The lessons were flexible, friendly and disarmingly honest, allowing me to quickly gain the skills and confidence I needed to pass first time.

John, Kingston

With a hillarious touch, Helen will not only get you through your test, but will teach you in such a way that you'll become a safe and confident driver for life. You'll catch yourself doing mirror checks even when you're not the one driving the car!

Natasha, Claygate

Helen is a kind and thorough instructor. She helped me feel more relaxed while driving, and gave me confidence. I would certainly recommend her.

Cathy, Teddington

I have really enjoyed my driving lessons with Helen and could not recommend her as a driving instructor more highly. Before I started having lessons I thought teaching me how to drive would be an impossible task but Helen put me completely at ease and now I am confident and safe on the roads. She is lovely and a fantastic teacher and I could not be more greatful to her. I feel that passing first time with only two minors was fully down to Helen's lessons, thank you Helen!

Ria, Teddington

I started a new job and needed to learn to drive. Union was recommended to and I found Graeme very patient and kind I would recommend Graeme to anyone also he is very trustful and honourable, I passed first time.

Gary, Hanworth

My instructor was friendly, professional and really down to earth! I had gone through two driving instructors and failed 3 test when Graeme began to teach me. I was really worried about starting again but he made me feel at ease, took everything in his stride and even when I really fluffed up he was cool and calm. I quickly improved through his teaching and encouragement. Really great instructor and I will recommend him to anyone who wants to learn to drive and pass their test 10/10!!

Hannah, Surbiton

Graeme is an excellent driving instructor, always willing to go the extra mile. I was initially very nervous but Graeme was very good at building up my confidence and ability on the road and I quickly came to enjoy my lessons. I am certain the reason I passed first time was because of this and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone and everyone. He is always punctual, flexible to suit your needs and incredibly easy to get along with; very important when your sitting in a car for 1-2 hours!

Abdy, Wimbledon

As I was nervous about learning to drive it was a great relief when I found out how easy it was to get along with my instructor, I ended up really enjoying my driving lessons and would recommend union to anyone!

Pornappa, Richmond

I learnt to drive with Union, good clear instructions and made me feel at ease! Thanks so much!

Katy, Richmond

Graeme was courteous, patient, punctual, knowledgeable and calm. He prepared me beyond the requirements of the test so I passed first time without trouble. He was honest about how many lessons I needed and was flexible over times; I recommend him.

Alex, Twickenham

If you are going to be confined to such a small place for a long period of time, its important that you can have a giggle with your instructor as well. Passed first time and had a laugh along the way. What more could you want.

Stuart, Kingston

I learnt with union good clear instructions very honest with the amount of lessons I needed pass first time with 0 minor faults!! Best all round experience than I could have hoped for. I would recommend them. Thanks again.
