Danny makes you comfortable and confident behind the wheel and gets you well on track to passing your test. He was very flexible working around my shifts and his patience and structured methods of teaching are second to none!
Danny was my 2nd instructor after being dropped in it so many times and being used as a cash machine
Don’t make the mistake (like I did) of using an instructor just because you want to save a few quid.
If you want to learn sound techniques, read other road users and want to be a safe, alert driver. Look no further!

Learned to drive age 40
I never thought id be able to drive. I was very nervous and totally lacking in confidence. Danny was incredibly patient with me. He built up my confidence lesson by lesson. He was calm, his instructions were clear and easy to follow. His kind and friendly manner put me at my ease. He not only taught me to pass my test (first time!) He also taught me how to be a good, confident driver. Kirsten Peebles 16/10/15

Passed with 2 minors
I took my driving test and passed it first time! Thank you to Danny Cave for being a great instructor who has patience of a saint, and believed in me whilst nurturing my driving skills to help me become the driver i am today. I wasn’t very confident at first especially on three lane roundabouts and I had picked up a bad habit with my clutch control but he made me feel comfortable and encouraged me to keep working on my weaknesses. I would 100% recommend Danny to anyone who needs an instructor and believes they need the encouragement to grow with confidence just like I did. Yet again a big thanks to him. Jemma Dalkin 27/11/14

Mo 10/11/14
Learning to drive with Danny was a pleasure as i was nervous at first but he put me at ease. He has a calming manor and is always reassuring. I started my lessons November last year and have just passed nearly a week ago and its the best thing i could ever have done. I have close friends that has passed first time with him, also that’s one of the main reasons why i booked my lessons with Danny. He is a great teacher and a must if you plan on passing first time. Georgia Sykes 26/7/14
Passed first time with danny and what an excellent instructor he is, makes you feel at ease and settles you down to get rid of those nerves. His teaching methods are second to none and makes the advanced stuff seem basic not only that but is a really down to earth nice person. He also worked my lessons around my busy working schedule which was highly appreciated. Could not thank him enough!!!! Liam Dunn 10/5/14

After failing my test 3 times with a different instructor, switching to Danny was a breath of fresh air. In 10 hours, I was shown techniques I was never shown in almost a year of learning. I have just passed my test today, first time with Danny. I highly recommend any first time driver to learn with him. Zarah Rowntree 27/11/13
I already held a automatic Licence for many years and had pick up loads of bad habits when I upgraded to a full manual licence. I booked with Danny as my partner passed with him and had nothing but praise for him, best decision I made, Danny took time to explain everything and had patience at all times even when I didn’t which resulted in a pass on my test with no minors I have no reservation in recommending him to anyone thinking of taking lessons and have already told Danny I will be booking him next year for my eldest Daughter. Kelly DLM 16/8/13
After two years with the same instructor and getting nowhere, I switched to Danny when I moved to Sunderland for uni. One of the best decisions I ever made. Danny’s structured, patient and friendly style helped me pass first time with just 4 minors. I would very much recommend him to anyone. Chris Sykes 9/8/13
After 4 failed tests and 3 previous instructors i gave up on passing my test for a good few year, my girlfriend then recommended Danny (who she also passed with) after a short time with Danny i passed my test with only 2 minors cant thank him enough Glen Liddle 30/7/2013
Dan is an excellent instructor. When I first started with his lessons I would’ve never have thought I would be able to pass with just 4 minors. Not only does he make you feel relaxed doing lessons but he also spends the time and effort to improve your driving. Would highly recommend him to anyone looking to learn to drive. Michael Boddy 28/7/2013
Danny is a great instructor. He is very calm, approachable and helps build up confidence whilst giving all the necessary preparations to pass the driving test. Definitely recommended. Nathan Taneja 17/5/2013

I passed my test first time with only 3 minors, Danny is very friendly, reliable, patient and works around your schedule, he has a very positive and reassuring attitude towards his students with a relaxed attitude. He explains all maneuvers clearly and efficiently so you understand what is expected, and provides feedback at the end of every lesson, would recommend to anyone wishing to learn to drive. Adam Urwin 28/03/13
I passed my test with Danny first time with only 7 minors. Danny is really calm in what he does and has a very good attitude. I would definitely recommend new drivers to start with Danny. He makes it a more comfortable drive when you have someone with experience in the passenger seat helping you as you go along. Very nice lad. Luke Charlton 26/03/2013
I have just passed my driving test first time with Danny and only got one minor. I didn’t know a thing about driving before i started my lessons so i was a complete beginner. Everything he learns you is to such a high standard and he pushes you to your full potential. As soon as your ready for your test he will advise you to go for it. He was recommended to me and i couldn’t have picked a better instructor myself. Great instructor who is reliable, patient and works around your schedule. If you want the best chance of a first time pass then book Danny now! David Whittle 26/11/12
Danny cave is an excellent driving instructor I would recommend him to anyone I passed my practical test first time, Danny is a down to earth, very calm instructor and makes learning to drive easy. Gareth Davies 12/10/12
Refresher Lessons I hadn’t driven for years and was always an anxious driver but Danny was very positive and reassuring and I ended up really enjoying the lessons. He let me decide on which things i would like to concentrate on and explained things very clearly. He aIso gave advice on fuel consumptiom and more advanced driving skills. I am certainly a much better driver now and feel confident to get back back on the road. StellaClare (04/10/2012)

I would recommed him to anyone, 10/10! - Ashleigh Urwin

I would highly recommend Danny the driving instructor if you are looking to take up driving. My review and high opinion is because he is very reliable, makes you feel at ease and comfortable when in the car. Also he passed me and my two sisters first time round and has a high pass rate.
- Kayleigh Fletcher
I learned to drive with Danny from Grindon School of Motoring and it’s the best thing I have ever done. I didnt have a clue about anything driving related but with Danny’s help I passed my theory test and driving test first time. He was always on time, patient and made me feel comfortable and relaxed while learning. Anything I didn’t understand he explained and made it seem easy. I love having the freedom now to go where I want when I want and not have to rely on others for lifts or wait for buses in the rain. I would highly recommend Danny to anyone looking for quality lessons and value for money.
- Lisa C
I just passed my test first time with Danny, he also helped me to pass my theory test. As well as being very flexible with times for lessons, fitting in with my work schedule. Really nice guy, made me feel a lot more confident on the road.
- Camilla Knowles
Both me and my two older brothers passed first time round with tuition from Danny. He is an excellent teacher, taught me all I needed to know in order to pass and become a confident driver today. I would recommend Danny to anyone who is wanting to learn to drive. His prices are reasonable and he is a very patient person to be in the car with. He is already top of my list for when my younger sister reaches 17.
- Jade Wallis
I have been learning to drive for the past few months and passed first time today. When I started my driving lessons I was terrified of other cars around me, hill starts and also driving in the rain. Thanks to Danny I am now a confident driver who enjoys driving and has the upmost confidence with the help from Danny. I would strongly recommend Danny as a driving instructor. 10/10 thanks for everything Danny.
- Emma Hannah
I started to learn to drive with Danny last year and because of all of his help I was able to pass my practical driving test first time. When driving with Danny he shows a lot of patience and he helped me overcome my difficulties of finding gaps and my manouveres. Since Danny’s help I no longer find anything driving related scary anymore and I strongly recommend hiring danny as a driving instructor. Thanks for all your help Danny 10/10.
