I can't really praise Hamid highly enough. He is a fantastic instructor. Always on time, he provides excellent tuition and teaches in such a calm and measured manner that I looked forward to all of my lessons and found them highly enjoyable. I think I've got a very good understanding of driving thanks to Hamid and will be a much better driver thanks to his lessons. I can't wait to book some pass plus lessons now I've passed my test!

Hamid is a brilliant , patient and supportive instructor who I have been learning with for the past year and a half! And couldn't recommend him enought! Hamid explains things clearly and carefully and is always positive, which has helped to build my confidence over time!

Just would like to express my gratitude to Hamid who was extremely professional at his job. The way he teaches and patience during our lessons - just giving the best results. I have managed to pass my practical test for the first time with only 3 minor faults. He has brilliant sense of humour, so your driving could be relaxed, but only sometimes. You will be prepared and good luck.

Hamid is an excellent instructor with an unlimited amount of patience and care. If you are a person who is nervous or has had bad experiences with previous instructors, Hamid is the perfect person to team with. I passed my test with only one minor after only 10 hours of driving with him after a previous bad experience with another company. Definitely recommend- 5*

Hamid is a great instructor, plenty of patience and explains things thoroughly with many visual aids to help. I came to Hamid after not having driven for 5 years and after I had taken my test twice those many years ago, he did a quick assessment to see where I was at, got me up to speed on everything that changed and prepared me for the test this time around. Happy to say I passed first time with 3 minors after doing a few mock tests, where I got similar results with Hamid. Excellent Instructor, thoroughly recommended.

Hamid is a great instructor. He is patient, calm, knowledgeable and professional. He always answered clearly when I asked questions and gave me great advice. I really enjoyed every minute of his lessons. I'm very grateful and can't thank him enough. Even now (after I passed the test) I can hear his voice in my head when I drive, which helps me a lot to be a safe driver. I would recommend him to anyone looking to learn to drive. Thank you very much Hamid!

Hamid was recommended to me by someone at work. I was looking for an instructor that could cope with a very anxious and self critical learner. Hamid has been supportive and encouraging from day one, very happy with my choice of instructor, even more so now I've passed!

A truly excellent experience. Hamid is a patient knowledgeable teacher who taught me not just how to pass the test but how to be a safe responsible driver in all situations. I would highly recommend Swish Driving School to anyone looking to learn to drive.

Hamid was such a great instructor. Came to him with an urgency to pass due to my theory expiring and he did everything he could to get me through the deadline. It was so easy to trust him with his skills and knowledge and he always made me feel at ease. Would definitely recommend him. So grateful for his work.

I'm very happy that I have finally passed my driving test. It has been a long journey. Wow I had failed on almost everything you could think, I've had several instructors. Even though I have failed with Mr Hamid, I would say that it was no fault of Mr Hamid I got extremely anxious during my test that I made unbelievable mistakes. I believe he felt my pain on every fail. But he continued to exercise the same patience and non judgement approach towards me. He encouraged me, never raised his voice no matter how many times he had to repeat himself, he believed in me. I'm so glad I met him and I recommend him 100 %. He helped me turn from professional learner to a fully qualified. I'm still celebrating.

I have just passed my test with 1minor only! Hamid has been patient throughout this journey! He is very polite and funny so driving never got boring. His teaching method helped me stay calm as he is very encouraging. His knowledge is unquestionable. He has never let me down as his pupil always on time very reliable. Would strongly recommend him! Thanks Hamid!

I've just passed my practical test for the first time!!! Gotta say that if it wasn't for Hamid's patience, professionalism as well as good sense of humour I wouldn't have enjoyed the journey nowhere near as much as I have! Hamid actually got me liking driving and believe in myself

Hamid is a brilliant instructor, very professional, patient and committed. I've had only a few lessons with him, but undoubtedly his dedication and commitment had helped me a lot to pass my test the very first time. I'm very grateful and can't thank him enough.

I had several driving instructors and Hamid was no doubt the best one. Not only that he was extremely reliable but also very accommodating so that I could get best out of my learning experience. Hamid is very calm and patient in the car and his teaching is well thought, planned, constructive and always tailored to individual students' needs and ability. He helped me to boost my confidence as well as got me through the test with good results. Thank you very much for all your hard work and you will always be my number one recommended driving instructor for anyone who wishes to pass a driving test and be a good driver.

I had an excellent time learning with Swish driving school. I have passed my test first time with this company and think it's a great company to learn from. Hamid is a very easy going instructor who knows how to put you at ease. Thank you Swish driving school.

I am very happy today as I passed my test. I took a very good decision to get lessons from this company. I failed my test 5 times learning with another company but I passed my test first time with this company. I had 3 training sessions and at last I passed my test thanks to my instructor Hamid, who helped me to pass my test. In my opinion you should get your training with him if you want to hear good news at the end of your training.
