Big Thank You to Tony

I would like to say a big Thank you to Tony hislop my driving instructor. He is so professional,patient and always want you to get it right. I will recommend him for anyone.

Thank you once again for been making and helping me passed my driving test.



Thank you Tony

I would like to thank my driving instructor Tony Hislop very much for his great patience with me during my driving training. He is a very good example to follow by all instructors; very knowledgeable, patient, encouraging, and very supportive all the way through.

There were moments when I lost my courage and become demotivated by the difficulty of the driving rules and the crowded streets in the UK, but his support and encouragement were always there to give me hope that I can do it which eventually happened with my licence in hand now.

Also, I would like to highlight his great methodology with the preparatory tests he run for me to recognize my strengthens and weaknesses which were very helpful in deciding what points to focus on in the training.

I really appreciate all that he did for me and hope all his sincere efforts with other driving students meet all success just as it did for me.

I would just like to say a massive thank you to Tony Hislop. Great driving instructor, very patient and professional. Would definitely recommend to anyone who is a nervous driver and doesn’t have much confidence. Thank you for helping me pass!

Tony is the best!

I would like to say Tony is the best instructor I have so far encountered. I had had 2 instructors before but no one even came close to how professional he is. He provides the smallest of the details of what you need to know in order to pass a test, he behaves so professionally that does not waste your time or money. With him I found it so easy to concentrate and learn even things that one would consider the smallest but important. He always made my 2 hours of learning worth every penny. If you are looking at this web page unsure about what to do, i strongly recommend that you call him up and start your journey to passing your driving test.


Tony was amazing!

Tony was an amazing instructor. Made everything seem so simple and it’s because of him I passed 1st Time. Thank you so much.


Tony is wonderful!

I just wanted to say how wonderful a driving instructor Tony is. I passed my test last Thursday with only ONE minor!! He really is fantastic. He has so much patience and is really calm and friendly, making the whole driving experience so relaxed and nice.

I have shared my experience all over social media. I think he’s an absolute credit to your company.

I’m a little sad I won’t see him again actually.

Massive Thank You!

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to both 1st 4 Driving and Tony! He is an absolutely great instructor and made me feel completely at ease from day one. When I started driving a few months ago, I didn't even know how to steer a car.. But Tony built my confidence and skills up and now I enjoy driving. He has also been really flexible with the days/times I can do my lessons, which I'm so grateful for! Today I passed my test and I couldn't be happier! So thank you, Tony!



Tony Hislop is an excellent instructor

Tony was a wonderful driving instructor

Tony was a wonderful driving instructor, who taught me the skills I needed throughout my learning experience. I would recommend Tony to absolutely everyone, as he was so kind and patient with me when I made silly mistakes. Before many lessons, especially at the beginning, I was incredibly anxious, however Tony was reassuring when teaching me. Learning to drive was something I was really keen to do, and I am so pleased I had Tony to teach me such an important skill. Thank you so much again.


From Naomi Stock, I passed today (20th March 2017) with 3 minor faults.

I passed my driving test!

I took my test With Anthony at Maybush Southampton. After an unpleasant experience and failing my test with another company, I was feeling very deflated and desperate to finally pass my test. When I came to Anthony, things were explained in a way that clicked, and I was always made to really think about how and why I was driving. I passed after a few short weeks. I think the way I was encouraged to revise my thought process around driving really helped get rid off my anxiety and approach it in a much more effective way. I'm now driving my little Hyundai i10 nicknamed Ricky out and about everywhere. As a live music photographer, being able to drive myself up and down the country for work has been such a great luxury. Thanks to 1st4Driving and Anthony!

The mission (im)possible

I was a Nervous Wreck when I started learning to drive. I had never driven a car, I didn't know how the road system works in the UK, my coordination was shot and I found it really hard to relax behind the wheel.

If it hadn't been for Tony's patience and encouragement, I am not sure if I would have carried on.

I passed my test today to Everyone's Delight and I couldn't thank Tony enough for this!

If anyone thinks it is impossible, please grab a chance with Tony.
Tony is very busy though! Good Luck! Lol


Terrific Instructor!

Tony is an extraordinary instructor who keeps attention to details. He is professional, patient and polite. He made me a better driver.
Thank you for helping me pass my test. I would recommend Road Runner very highly.

A* Instructor!

I had a bad experience with a previous instructor who I failed my driving test with. This caused me to be a very nervous driver. I found Tony's website and contacted him to arrange some lessons and explained my nerves to him. We had a accessment lesson and within two attempts, Tony had me successfully doing reverse bay parking (a manuover I wasn't confident in doing) he is so patient and so calming which helped me so much with my confidence and nerves in driving. He is very welcoming and makes you feel at ease! He praises what your good at and was calm in explaining and demonstrating what you need work on. I can not recommend Tony enough! A few lessons later, I passed first time with him and this was through his help and support. Highly reccommended. A* Instructor! Thanks Tony your a star! I'll be in touch for a Pass Plus lesson!

Lucky to have Tony as my instructor

Tony is a really good instructor, he knew where my weaknesses are and made me do practices on those to get improvements. Tony is very nice but at the same time he is straight when it comes to safety as he wants to make sure I am a safe driver on the road. I am really happy passing the test the 1st time, thank you Tony 🙂

Excellent Instructor

Tony is very patient and understanding. I am in my early 60's and have never driven before and Tony gave me the confidence to overcome my fears. I have now completed my pass plus also with Tony. I have felt safe in every phase of learning. Once again many many thanks Tony. I will definitely recommend you Tony.
Chris Jones

A very caring and understanding instructor. Firm and tough when need to be.But he always tell you why he tough on you so that he want you to succeed over your fear and pass. I was very grateful and fortunate to have Tony as my instructor, otherwise I would never pass.

Hardip Atkin

Christine Jones

Willing to go the extra mile.

As a parent I was tasked at short notice to find a driving instructor for my daughter as her new job required her to be able to drive. After trawling through the internet I found Tony. After explaining our needs and the time scale he pulled out all the stops, rearranged his finishing time and weekend schedule and with understanding, patience and a wealth of knowledge and experience helped my daughter to a first time pass. Tony you are truly a star in our family. Thank you from us all. Ray

Rebecca Gardner

Simply the greatest

After having a very bad experience on a driving lesson 17 years ago, tony was recommended to me by a good friend. I was terribly nervous and tense throughout my first few lessons with tony but after a very short time felt at ease an relaxed. Driving became easy.... Even natural!

I am so pleased to say I passed my test 1st time yesterday! I know this is all down to tony. He is very calm, which kept me calm. Explained every thing in terms I could understand and totally gave me confidence in my own ability! For that I am so grateful.... THANKYOU TONY!! Xx

Stacey Hatch

Very Encouraging and Professional

Started my lessons with Tony after struggling to find a good instructor, he was great throughout, very encouraging and professional. To this day I believe I never would have passed without him and I am very grateful. I would recommend him to anyone wishing to learn to drive, especially those like myself who had found it hard before.

Kind regards


Tammy Fowkes

What a Great Instructor

Very interesting to learn driving lesson from Tony as it was my first and to have such a brilliant instructor. There might be some misunderstandings as we everyone does during learning. I want to thank him for making effort to make me pass safely.

Pradip Dura

Highly Impressive

I would like to take this opportunity to say that the quality of training and instruction offered by Tony over several months ago has been highly impressive. your polite and reliable vary many thanks Tony. i already recommended you


Quality Driving Company

I have been with a fair few driving companies but road runner driving was the best. Tony is an ACE instructor very polite and friendly. Always had a laugh on every lesson. Thank you so much Tony and I have already recommended you. 🙂

Diane Whitcher

Really Professional

Thanks so much to Tony Hislop. Having tried some of the bigger driving schools, Tony proved to be the most professional and enjoyable instructor to have, by far. Without his help, i dont think i would have been anywhere near achieving a first-time pass. Thank you so much.

Ian McKay

Brilliant Instructor!

Tony Hislop was a fantastic instructor, i really enjoyed every lesson i had with him! Would highly recommend. Thanks again so much.

Scott Pack J

Great Guy!

I really enjoyed my time spent learning to drive and I had a great experience with a great teacher!
I don't say this about many people but Tony Hislop is one of the best people I have ever met!


Would definitely recommend!

I was recommended Tony Hislop by a friend and from the first lesson, I always felt safe and reassured. I was very nervous about driving fast to begin with but I broke that barrier and made good progress in that aspect by constantly being set small targets and being encouraged by my instructor. I thoroughly enjoyed learning to drive and looked forward to all of my lessons. Now I am insured on my mum's car and can't wait to start driving myself around for a change!


Thanks Tony!

Thank you Tony for getting me through my driving, it is much appreciated and I would recommend you to every one I know, top guy. Thank you once again 😀 16/7/13
