Steve was an incredible driving instructor. I was someone who knew absolutely nothing about cars and how they even moved, but Steve slowly and precisely talked me through everything. He is a very kind man who makes time for his students and puts in all his effort to help them. I passed first time with Steve as my instructor with only 1 minor! I would thoroughly recommend Steve!
Today I passed with adi joe trzeja thank you so much joe for helping me I would highly recommend this company Mike Weller
I can’t thank Janine enough for getting me through my test….. she’s one amazing instructor, will miss you loads see ya on the road xx Sam Aspinall
Thank you so much to Dean for being such a fantastic instructor for Bryndon. Really nice guy who made every lesson count. Highly recommended. Anne-Marie Ingram
I had dean as an instructor his professionalism and knowledge was exceptional, made me feel really comfortable right from the start all the way until my driving test, if you are looking to pass first time he is the man to go to a real genuine bloke 👍 Dan Stubbs
I started my driving lessons a few years ago with a different company I literally was getting no where I had zero confidence so just gave up 😕 so my sister found street life and she’s probably the most shyest person you could ever meet and she was enjoying her lessons and passed within a few months so then I decided to book from the moment I got in the car I was so calm and I learnt more in my one less than I ever did when I was with the other company a few months later I passed I really can’t thank dave enough I passed 2 months ago I kept stalling the car and I asked Dave if he could come out with me he booked me in straight away and just one hour with Dave I’m feeling so much more confident Dave literally goes above and beyond for his pupils so if u live around Chelmsford definitely give Dave a call xx Gemma Page
I cannot recommend Steve enough. After having him picking me up mid way through my lessons he’s taught me extremely well! Such a great person to drive with and everything was explained excellently.
Thanks Steve and street life! Archie Harris
I cannot thank Rik at street life enough for all his help last week teaching me to drive and helping me with my confidence which resulted in me passing first time. I am not an easy student as was full of self doubt and nerves but he patiently put up with me all week. Fantastic company will recommend to anyone who needs to learn to drive.
I cannot recommend Dave enough he taught me in his automatic car in Braintree , I was super nervous fell pregnant half way through our lessons so he had to be patient when I needed to stop , I have had a number of instructors of which I didn’t get on with , he was the only one I trusted and could feel comfortable around , he was kind , patient , understanding and funny , in the end he became a friend and I am so thankful to him without him I wouldn’t be on the road after a very long journey of doing lessons with other instructors Caroline Mayers
1st time passed an hour ago with Steve! Big thank you!!! Amazing teacher, I’d recommend him to everyone! Joanna Wałecka
We have used streetlife for all 3 of our children. Lisa in braintree has been the instructor with all of them and my youngest passed first time yesterday we can’t thank her enough! Fantastic instructor, reliable, encouraging, calming and very friendly. I would recommend lisa to anyone learning to drive! She got all 3 of mine on the road safely. Thank you xx
Kiekee was a brilliant instructor, very flexible and friendly. Really made me feel comfortable and confident, and I felt very confident getting behind the wheel on my own once I’d passed due to her teaching. Would recommend to anyone learning to drive. Thank you Kiekee!
Dear Streetlife and Steve,
Thank you for a brilliant driving experience! Steve was very kind, encouraging and calm in the car which made driving a lot less daunting and gave great advice on how to improve each week. He was also very patient and ensured that you could spend a lesson improving on what you wanted, which I really appreciated. Furthermore, he was very consistent and reliable and never cancelled a lesson. He was always there each week, so there was never a long gap between lessons which made things generally much easier. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience, so thank you once again!
Here’s a review of the driving instructor Jo, I just wanna say he’s been a massive help on me, and even though I failed 4 times he hasn’t given up on me, I also recommended him to everyone I’ve had the chance to, thanks – Michael
This is a massive thank you to Lynn for all your help and support and I passed first time
Big Big thank you to Tony, I just passed literally 2 hours ago and wanted to leave this review straight away. I had some previous driving experience before but had a lengthy gap of not driving as I went to Uni. Tony was great in assessing where I was ability wise and helping me through to pass. I would not hesitate to recommend Tony to anyone looking for an instructor!
Passed my test first time. Richard was a splendid instructor from first to last. He dug me out of a hole caused by another firm cancelling last minute. I was made to feel at ease from the very first moment I was picked up, which is very much needed being a learner driver. I was given expert guidance and encouragement throughout my intensive course which enabled me to pass. A huge thank you to Rich, I can not recommend him highly enough. Top bloke, top instructor!
Get that Friday feeling
I would highly recommend Joe for an instructor, he took me to Chelmsford for my first lesson which was scary but I would definitely not be able to say I have passed first time otherwise. I had just over 40 hours and each lesson I overcome a new fear, loads of fun on the lessons as well. Thanks Alice Escritt
What a perfect email to start the day
This is just a quick note of thanks having recently passed (first time)
I suffer with a serious anxiety condition and in July when you put me and Your instructor in touch I said to him that this may be tough for me and I may struggle with keeping it up.
Throughout the lessons and test He has made the experience easy, fun and beneficial. Quickly the nerves disappeared as he instilled confidence in me and during my near intense first week I changed from being nervous to drive to very excited and confident behind the wheel. I think he was the perfect choice for me and can see him being a serious asset to you for nervous drivers. I can’t believe that in such a short period of time he managed to move me from a worried novice to confident learner to actually not only bring test ready but passing first time. I’m so happy with the whole experience and will definitely be recommending you further. It feels amazing to have my licence and I’m grateful for his, and in turn your, professionalism, patience and kindness throughout.
Anyway, I thought my instructor and yourselves as a school deserved a little feedback on a wonderful experience.
Kind regards, Jack.
Thankyou for the feedback
Hello just wanted to give a massive thanks to my driving instructor Graeme, a really good instructor who lets you learn at your own pace and gives you the confidence to both drive safely and confidently. Highly recommend him for anyone else.
bit late in the day – but better late than never!
just wanted to say a big thanks to Steve in getting me passing my driving test
had been with another instructor – who was bloody useless and knocked all motivation out of me…Steve was great, really informative and friendly, and the best bit – he got me to pass first time, with only 2 minors
10/10 would recommend him to anyone
Thanks Rhys Griffiths I have to thank Tom Trowles my instructor; he took a genuine interest in fostering my improvement and his approach gave me confidence that we had all bases covered. Professional, punctual and personable – would recommend him to anyone.
THANKS Jess Styles Dave is an enthusiastic and friendly instructor. He was always very patient and determined to tackle the tasks at hand. I am very thankful for his professionalism as well as his calming, fun attitude that made it a joy to learn with him. I can’t thank him enough!
Thank you to Karolina Allen for the Lovely words.
“I would like to say a massive thank you to Marcia Jackson! She is the most amazing driving instructor ❤️ I would have given up a long time ago if it wasn’t for Marcia! Would definitely recommend learning to drive with street life and this lovely Lady
Just wanted to write a quick note about my experience with Streetlife – lessons since April with Grahame- brilliant instructor makes you feel at ease and explains everything really well- lovely BMW to learn it and great to drive! Would definitely recommend anyone to use the company and Grahame on the future!

Some Great Feedback
“Started my lessons with Joe about 7 months ago after having a previous instructor. I immediately felt much more confident in my driving after just a few lessons with Joe and I felt increasingly able to drive independently. I’ve enjoyed my lessons with Joe, who has always been encouraging and patient and I highly recommend him to any learner driver!”
THANKS BECCI MANKELOW
I would just like to say a huge thank you to Richard my driving instructor he was the most patient and helpful instructor I have had. He has helped my confidence and I passed today first time with only one minor. I would highly recommend streetlife driving school to anyone and especially Richard.
Thanks again from a very happy customer
Thank you Taylor Seymour for the feedback, “Hello just thought I’d message you to say how wonderful Demelza was…I felt fully confident with her she was a lovely driving instructor even though she drove me mad nagging about my Mirrors but she got me up to test standard and I couldn’t be more grateful for that!

Hello, my names patrick dickens, I had my driving test today and passed first time thanks to the help of Joseph trzeja, would like like to leave a small review as I’m very happy to have had him as my instructor, very nice guy who makes you feel very relaxed but is also not afraid to make sure you know when you are doing something wrong and will make sure you understand exactly what it is you are doing wrong and then will tell you how to correct it. Very impressed!
Thank you Gemma Lake
Just wanted to leave a bit of feedback with regards to your company and Steve.
When I moved to Chelmsford and was looking for an instructor as soon as I contacted Streetlife I instantly felt at ease and knew that this company was the right one for me.
I had previously failed 5 tests in Clacton and was fast approaching my theory expiring. Steve was fantastic and taught me in my first lesson than my previous instructor had. He made me feel a lot more confident with my driving and managed to get me passed first time with you guys.
Would recommend Streetlife and Steve to anyone looking to learn to drive!!
Thanks Rosie Hall for the Feedback.
Thanks Marcia for your hard work and constantly making me laugh and making me feel at ease. Was a pleasure to be taught by you 🙂
I want to take a moment to say a very big thank you to Lisa Costello at Streetlife. I first tried to learn to drive 27 years ago but the instructor was so scary she put me off until last year.
Lisa has been patience personified and a real support through the 18 months i’ve taken to pass my test! Anyone who is nervous or scared of learning to drive, don’t be…if I can do it, anybody can! Lisa you are the best, thank you
I’ve been learning with joe the Italian for a few months now and today I have passed first time!!
The man is a diamond! One of the best driving instructors around!! Give the man a good review please!!
Thanks Beth Sokhi
I just want to say a massive thank you to Streetlife and my instructor Ela Parker, who gave me the skills and confidence I needed to pass first time on Friday. Also thanks to Lisa Costello for my early lessons.
THANKYOU AMY LENTON
I would just like to say thank you to the staff holding the young drivers scheme at colcheser, especially Marcia and Amy who were my main teachers. I had been attending for nearly 2 years and passed my test first time yesterday after just 10 lessons with my instructor. I couldn’t have done it so quickly and felt so confident without them
Thankls Dylan Hedgecock Hello I would like to say a massive thank you to Richard who helped me pass my automatic
Thanks for the feedback Charlie Flanagan
I had steve as a driving instructor and I must say he is absolutely fantastic at his job. His laid back approach made me feel very comfortable and made driving lessons actually enjoyable. Can’t thank him enough and would recommend him to anyone and everyone who wants to learn to drive.
Thank you Ellie!
I learnt with Ryan and I couldn’t fault him at all. All of our lessons I thought were productive and to a high standard. I would definitely recommend learning with Streetlife to anyone who wants to start learning
Thanks Phoebe for the feedback
My instructor, Ken, was very friendly, patient and kind. He made me feel comfortable to ask any questions I had and was clear with his instructions giving me any needed constructive criticism. I managed to pass my test within 4 months of my 17th birthday and have recommended him to a friend who is getting on very well!
I would just like to provide some brilliant feedback to one of your instructors Lynne Close. I passed my driving test today. I couldn’t have asked for a better instructor. Lynne made me feel confident at all times and I looked forward to every lesson that we had booked in. She was very flexible with her times and was happy to work around me and even work on Saturdays! Lynne is a brilliant instructor and more importantly a lovely person. Please pass this on. I would recommend Lynne to anyone looking to take up driving.
My Instructor Tony was amazing i started learning when i was 17 and had 7 year break, and tony made me feel confident and comfortable and had faith when i didn’t, he never let me plod through always pushing me knowing i could do it he is a amazing instructor and thanks to him i passed, our lessons where always full with new things to learn and bits i didn’t feel confident in he would fit in and allow me to practice he was amazing its good i passed but a shame as no more Saturday lessons i highly recommend tony to anyone he pushed me when i thought i couldn’t do it thank you tony, Lauren x
Thank you Kate Allen for the Feedback
“Would like to just say a Humongous Thank you to Sarah for her patience and getting me through my Driving test today! I have never felt so confident in my years of driving lessons that I have done when learning to drive with Sarah..
Thank you so much!!”
I am writhing in regards to one of your tutors, Steve, which I just wanted to give him a 10 out of 10. I thought he was very helpful and a good confidence boost. He not only helped me pass my test first time but he also thought me how to drive properly and safely. Just wanted to let him know that he was a very good instructor.
THANKYOU I am sending you a message regarding my driving with Joseph Trzeja. Before I met Joe I had lessons and 3 tests which I was not confident or prepared for and was left a bag of nerves. After 4 years I decided to try again and found Joe, he taught me how to be a confident and safe driver. He was amazingly patient and gave me good feedback. Today I passed my test first time with Joe and all thanks to him. Thanks, Sasha Smith
Thanks Rhys Thomas
Just like to say a massive thank you to Steven George for his time! A brilliant instructor who helped me pass first time! Highly recommend him to all my friends and every new driver!
Well done Emily Riddleston and thanks for the feedback.
“Loved driving with street life, made me feel very calm and safe whilst learning to drive and the Under 17s Young Driver Education – Slyde gave me a lot more confidence when moving onto the roads”.
Well done Paddy Woodcraft, Thanks for the Feedback. Well street life made learning a pleasant and easy experience, my instructor Julie helped me become more confident on the road quickly. Despite failing my first test she helped me keep determined and I managed to pass my 2nd test 2 weeks later.
Always nice to get great feedback
Joe Trzeja. Absolutely brilliant instructor, couldn’t of asked for anyone better. Made me feel at ease and confident at the same time. Highly recommend Joe to anyone and have already recommended him to friends of mine.
Hey my names jess and I just passed my driving test today! I had Joe trzeja as my instructor and he was the best instructor I could’ve asked for; he was patient yet when needed he was firm and focused on me passing my test. We had great chats as I can’t drive in silence and made sure my driving was the best it could be. Very happy with him as my instructor
Well Done Josh Dunican
I passed yesterday with only 2 minors.
I passed with only doing 22 hours with streetlife. Thanks to my instructor Graeme helping me pass so quickly.
WELL DONE Daisy Watson Hiya, just wanted to say I passed my test today first time with 4 minors after about 25 hours with Jon
THANKYOU Amie Waite Hi just wanted to say a massive thank you to Adele for teaching me to drive. Today I passed first time with only 4 minors and only been learning just under 3 months. Adele had a lot of patience with me. Thank you so much
I am thrilled to say I passed my test first time today :D. There’s no way I could have done it without my instructor Bill Davey. He was so helpful and patient with me, and really helped me with my confidence. Thanks so much!
my names @oliver glasson and I’ve been learning with Joe Trzeja at Streetlife – just like to say I’ve had a brilliant time learning with him and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone! Very patient with me and learning was a pleasure!!
Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Graeme, who made it possible for me to pass first time yesterday after two months of lessons and no previous experience.
I was petrified of learning to drive and didn’t want to learn at all but needed to for work. However Graeme was incredibly calm and patient throughout which helped hugely in easing my nerves and was always willing to answer my questions and support me through things I wasn’t sure of.
He was very flexible with my lesson times, fitting them in around my work and always managed to fit me in for the hours I wanted.
I would recommend Graeme (and Streetlife!) to all, especially anyone who is as nervous as I was. As you will quickly become more confident and are able to learn at your own speed.
Thank you again! ☺
Good evening everyone,
I would like to thank Streetlife Drive for their time in having me as a student within their company!
I’d love to thank my wonderful driving instructor Tony, who has been very supportive throughout my time during lessons.
Tony as a driving instructor is very kind naturtured, always up for a giggle, friendly, strict on occations when needs be but also very fair. Tony is also very professional.
Before I came to Street life i was within another driving school.. ( I will now slander another driving school) but, all in all.. i wasn’t going far within my lessons, and I was paying a lot of money.
Ever since leaving that driving school and headed to Street life, I have learnt so much in a short space of time. Without Carl placing me with Tony, I would of still been stuck..
I recomend anyone to Tony..
Words cannot explain how grea and confident I feel as a newly passed student.
A small note to Carl, please place more future new students to Tony, as they will learn so much greater. He is honestly a one in a million.
Thank you!! @lexi
THANKS Daniel Burr I just wanted to say a massive thank you for helping me pass first time! Steve George helped me over come so much and to push through so many obstacles that I had. He was very calm with me and explained everything clearly. He encouraged me to keep going and remain positive, even when I messed up. Thank you for making this possible
I started learning to drive with Joe after changing driving instructors and it was the best choice I made. He’s an awesome instructor made me feel very comfortable while I was driving and made me feel more confident in myself. He was a very supportive driving instructor very friendly and chatty. I couldn’t ask for a better instructor. Strongly recommended him he’s great.
Just wanted to leave some feedback for Joseph T. I came to street life after a disaster with my previous driving school. Just wanted to say he is brilliant. As well as professional he is a great driving instructor! I was extremely nervous when I started and Joe went through all the basics! He made me understand how and why and this helped me immensely. We started from scratch and as I progressed joe pushed me to do more and my confidence grew. He is straight to the point and extremely supportive. I’ve had the best experience learning to drive.. Thank you. I passed my test , thanks to joe!
I had Joe from street life as a driving instructor. I’ve struggled with various other instructors and my old instructor wasn’t very good. But I moved to street life and after 3 years learning to drive it only took Joe a couple of months to get me to test standard and pass. Very pleased! Megs
Lovely review to wake up to 🙂 thank you Sophie Playle
Hiya I passed my test today and I just wanted to say that Lisa was such a big help and helped me improve my driving really quickly!
