“I was involved in a fairly serious car accident in early 2021 and with that my confidence was shot. I was advised by my solicitors to have a refresher course in driving. With this, I found Chris Gilbert and was happy after speaking with him about my worries and concerns and he reassured me he was the right man for the job. We spent over 5 hrs together driving and having mini tutorials which helped reinforce the driving skills I was being taught. Chris is a superb driving instructor and is an asset to have in educating drivers to becoming better safer and wiser drivers.
Thanks again for all of your hard work on that day”. Simon, Berkshire. 2022
“I recently attended another advanced training day with Chris Gilbert. The fact that I travel from Dublin to attend, will tell you how much I rate the experience. My most recent training was nothing short of outstanding. I had a long list of goals and questions for Chris and incredibly, all of these, along with new ones on the day, were met with ease due to his personable manner, depth and understanding of driving techniques and the ability to impart the right information at exactly the right time. He follows up his balanced feedback with ‘talk-through’ that is simply second to none – and as an Advanced Driver Trainer myself, I have experienced many ‘talk throughs’ over the years. Once again, I came away from the experience bursting with enthusiasm and my new knowledge of how to improve my driving. I would highly recommend Chris irrespective of your own perceived standard of expertise. Chris is a gentleman and a consummate professional and he hasn’t seen the back of me yet!” Colm Branigan, Dublin, Ireland. 2022
