"He's the Best Around- No Question About It! – I went into Mr. Faulkner's Driving School as a teen driver that didn't have confidence on the road. Practicing with my parents was becoming so stressful that I just wanted to give up. I felt like all my friends were driving, and I was the only one that couldn't do it. This is when I confided in Mr. Faulker, and he worked with me to make me into a VERY strong driver. Not only does he teach you how to master correct driving technique, but Mr. Faulkner stresses safety and showed me how to make the safest decisions on the road- all the time. I am now a GREAT, safe driver, and I know that I wouldn't have been able to do it without such a wonderful mentor. Thanks to Mr. Faulker, I have all of the tools that I need."

"I have spent the past few months sitting in the passenger seat with my 3 teens which wasn't easy. Although they were doing well my husband and I felt they needed an objective and experienced teacher. I saw the article in the Observer about Mr. Faulkner and I knew it was meant to be. I quickly called him and after meeting him I knew my kids were in great hands. Of course at first my kids thought it was a stupid idea. After driving with Mr. Faulkner my kids have thanked me and told me what a great experience it was. He was patient and taught them things that I wouldn't have thought of. Now I can feel a sense of relief that I now have three confident drivers on the road!"
