If you are looking for a driving instructor I would highly recommend Dan. I started lessons with no real driving experience so it was great that he is so patient and calm. Each lesson was planned to what I needed to improve on and I learned a lot from him, so much so I passed 1st time with no minor errors, thank you
Rebecca – Carlisle
I don’t even know where to start with praise for Danny! Danny Gibson was the best driving instructor I could have had, I first started driving with Danny after failing a test with another instructor and massively losing confidence when it came to driving. I had built up a lot of anxiety towards driving and had convinced myself that I would never be able to it. Danny really helped me to deal with my anxiety towards driving. Danny has such a calming presence and the patience of a Saint. Now that I’m officially on the roads, I’ve realised all the skills that Danny has taught me. I’ve not once been stuck not knowing what to do, I’ve felt confident and known how to approach every challenge I’ve faced in the car. I can’t thank Danny Gibson enough! If you are looking for a knowledgeable, calm and patient driving instructor, Danny is your man! Thank you again for all your Help!!

Danny is patient, commited, thorough and above all a good human being. He gets to know you and works at your pace, never getting agitated or annoyed. He also adjusts to individual needs (ADHD), keeping you focused and stopping you from overthinking. Absolutly recommend.
Sam – Carlisle
I would highly recommend Danny Gibson to anyone looking for a driving instructor. He bases all his lessons around your thoughts and feelings on the day of your lesson and never pushes you to do anything your not comfortable with. Danny is so patient no matter how you drive and very professional. Danny doesn’t just teach you just how to pass a test, he teaches you how to be a safe confident driver beyond test. I can’t thank you enough for everything Danny.
Catalina – Carlisle
A big thank you to Danny Gibson! I would highly recommend Danny to anybody looking for a driving instructor as he’s so patient and professional. If you are interested in learning to drive safely, he won’t just teach you how to pass a test but how to drive safely after test. Danny centred all of my lessons around my thoughts and feelings and would never push me into doing something that I did not feel ready for, allowing me to learn at my own pace. Was a long way but with him patience and support I’ve passed my test and I’m so happy! Thank you so much Danny for all your help and support.
Zuzanna – Gretna

Alisha – Penrith
Thank you so much to Danny Gibson for helping me to pass my driving test and for teaching me skills for life. I cannot say enough how grateful I am and how much of a great teacher Danny is. He kept my enthusiasm up and always told me to do what’s safe which I have definitely kept in mind whilst driving by myself and with others. Brought a brilliant attitude to all of my lessons and was all round an amazing teacher. Going to miss him but now he can teach another driver to be safe on the roads and help them pass their test.
Nicky Thornwaith – Carlisle
Danny is a really nice guy very patient, reliable and very understanding
Sam Greiner – Dumfries
A massive thank you to Danny Gibson for teaching me the skills for my driving test but more importantly skills for the Rest of my life. I only had so much time before my theory ran out to get ready for my driving test and Danny taught me brilliantly, calmed my nerves, Danny is very great at explaining what to do and how to do it in the most safest way possible. I fully recommend to anyone wanting to learn how to drive as he is calm, collective and listens to what you want out of a lesson. Thank you very much again Danny for getting me to my goal of passing my driving test First attempt with 0 minors. The Motto that I will stick with for life (Just do what’s SAFE)
Aaron Carmicheal – Annan
I started driving with Danny Gibson in June 2019. Danny is a great person who has the patience of a saint, a great communicator and I’ve enjoyed my time learning to drive under his supervision. Passed my driving test on the 6/8/2020 after test previously postponed due to Covid 19. I would like to say a big thank you.
Denis – Carlisle
I have been driving for many years in another country and for one year in England and had to re-take my driving test to get my English driving licence, this is when I found Danny Gibson. Danny is so patient and the most important thing that Danny helped me with was how to drive safely even though I had many years experience of driving and by doing this I passed my driving test First Time in this country with no minors as well. Thank you so much Danny for helping me to understand what it takes to become a safe driver even though I’ve had many years experience.
Jade – Carlisle
A massive thank you to Danny Gibson!
I recently Passed my Driving Test FIRST TIME and couldn’t be happier! I was a very nervous learner driver and his lessons were so valuable, Danny is extremely patient and really let me build up my confidence in my own time. I would highly recommend Danny Gibson to anyone wanting to learn to drive, I have a quite hectic home life but Danny always managed to accommodate me and got me in for as many lessons as I needed per week. Thank you again Danny Gibson for your time and patience.
Sam – Penrith
A Huge thank you to Danny Gibson – the Best Driving Instructor out there. I would highly recommend Danny to anybody looking for a driving instructor as he’s so patient and laid back. He always goes with your thoughts and feelings, is always willing to help in anyway he can and always believing in you thank you again!
Syd Manser – Carlisle
Danny Gibson is a very patient and helpful driving instructor. He always took my thoughts and feelings into account and would do his best to adapt the lessons to suit my needs. Very glad I’ve passed my test and very thankful to Danny Gibson for all his help
Jacob Norman – Wigton
Danny Gibson was recommended to me by a friend who had already passed with Danny Gibson. I found Danny to be a very patient and calm teacher, as well being easy to talk to and sociable. His instruction really helped me to pass my test and safely develop my driving skills for life. Thank you
Natalie Gordon – Carlisle
Danny Gibson is the driving instructor to go with. After having previous lessons with another driving instructor I was ready to give up on driving. I have struggled with a lot of anxiety around driving however Danny Gibson made me feel at ease behind the wheel with his kind and calm approach, he doesn’t just teach you how to pass a test but coaches you to be an all round safe driver before and for after test. He has the patience of a saint especially when it came to me asking 10 billion questions a lesson, and he goes with your thoughts and feelings not just a guideline on a sheet of paper. Not once did he pressure me into something I didn’t feel comfortable doing but at the same time ensured I was making good progress. I will never regret choosing Danny as my driving instructor as he’s rounded me up from an anxious second guessing driver to a confident, safe and reliable driver. He goes above and beyond for all his students and I am very grateful for all he has done for me to finally to become a full license holder. I 100000% recommend Danny Gibson to anyone who wants to learn to drive. Thank you for all you’ve done
Ryan – Carlisle
Danny Gibson is a fantastic instructor/coach who is very calm which takes away the nerves of leaning to drive, he gives you confidence while driving this helps you think about driving safely for life and not just for test. Thanks Danny Gibson
As someone who struggles massively with practical learning and tasks, the prospect of learning how to drive was very daunting, not helped by having a few lessons with another instructor who made me question whether I would be able to drive. Then I found Danny Gibson, and slowly but surely through his calm and caring approach he helped me to build my confidence and learn how to drive safely, not only for test but beyond test too. There were times where I made mistakes and felt like giving up completely but Danny ensured that I stuck with it and always took away the positives from the lesson through his belief in me I was able believe in myself.
Danny centred all of my lessons around my thoughts and feelings and would never push me into doing something that I did not feel ready for, allowing me to learn at my own pace. Overall the words I would use to describe Danny as an instructor are: patient, kind, funny, relaxed and simply brilliant. I could not have wished for a better driving instructor and would recommend him to anyone.
Carl Haughan – Carlisle
I went with Danny Gibson due to a family recommendation. Danny Gibson is a brilliant Driving instructor and teaches all you need to about safe driving and being able to keep driving safely after passing your test, which I passed first time. I highly recommend Danny Gibson.
Nathan Kerr – Carlisle
I went with Danny Gibson because of recommendation, I’m very glad I did he isn’t just a driving instructor he’s a coach he helps you with, dealing with driving mentally as well as teaching you how to drive safely. He’s a caring coach who genuinely cares about each individual student and couldn’t do any more for his students, I’m very grateful to Danny Gibson and would recommend him to anyone.
Nathan Tweddle – Penrith
I found Danny Gibson after being with another Driving Instructor who didn’t help me at all, my confidence was very low. The way Danny Gibson Coaches helped out massively in getting me to relax and just drive safely. I would recommend Danny Gibson to anyone without hesitation.
Nicole Hields – Penrith
I found Danny Gibson after being with another driving instructor for a few months and had almost resigned myself to believing I’d never be able to drive. My confidence was shattered. Danny Gibson changed all that, his patient, funny, kind, professional and always honest. He stuck by me through trying tears and moments where I just wanted to give up. He doesn’t push you into anything your not ready for and doesn’t make you feel uncomfortable, he never raises his voice or makes you feel small. Danny Gibson is by far the funniest driving instructor you’ll find and will always have you in stitches.
Far too often instructors teach to pass a test, leaving you without some basic skills, this is not the case with Danny Gibson. He lets you take the wheel and learn at your own pace and will show you how to drive safely, confidently and with all the skills you’ll need for life.
I can’t thank Danny Gibson enough for being a mentor and a friend from lesson one right through to passing my test.
I would recommend Danny Gibson to anyone looking for a driving Coach no matter what your skill or confidence level. He won’t give up on you, he’ll always find a way to help you with whatever you need and he’ll make you laugh along the way and this is coming from some who never wanted to drive but had to learn.
Danny Gibson, Driving Coach, Therapist and Patron Saint of lost learners.
Alice Bull – Carlisle
Can’t believe 8 years ago I was in a car accident that made me the most nervous/awful passenger you could imagine and that 8 years later I finally plucked up the courage to get behind the wheel and finally past my driving test couldn’t have done it without the most helpful patient driving instructor Danny Gibson thank you.
George Dixon – Penrith
Danny Gibson is a brilliant driving instructor/coach, he gives off a calm vibe which helps builds your confidence and will let you have ago as much as he can but will step in where needed. This helps you think more about how to drive safely for life and not just for test
Darren – Carlisle
I would highly recommend Danny Gibson if you are interested in learning to drive safely, he won’t just teach you how to pass a test but how to drive safely after test, so if your a nervous driver he is the best instructor you will find and the best part, he is a nice friendly guy.
Danny Gibson thanks for getting me through my test second time around as I lost my licence. Done 9 hours with Danny Gibson and he was excellent, everything you need in a driving instructor! I would highly recommend Danny Gibson
I would like to say a massive thank you to Danny Gibson for getting me through my Driving Test, even with horrible working hours he fitted me in top man Danny Gibson. Great to talk to and always doing his courses to improve his own business and to give his learners more for their money. For anyone who reads this go/stick with Danny Gibson he will teach you to learn to drive not just pass a driving test. Thanks again to Danny Gibson.
Before starting with Danny Gibson School of motoring, I spent several hours with a different instructor but didn’t feel like I was learning to drive and more that I was learning to just pass a test. Fortunately Danny Gibson ensured me that I’d develop my skills to drive safely, efficiently and confidently for and beyond test. Danny Gibson tailored each lesson to focus on the areas I felt I needed to develop ( AT TIMES DISPLAYING IMPRESSIVE DEGREES OF PATIENCE) rather than forcing a specific syllabus, emphasising self-evaluation, so that I was taking responsibility for my development as a driver and progressing at a rate I felt comfortable with. It’s safe to say I am much more comfortable as a new driver than I would have been had I not spent time with Danny Gibson’s tuition and I look forward to completing the pass plus with Danny Gibson. Cheers Danny Gibson.
When I first started driving lessons I was a very nervous driver and had been with a number of driving instructors before I started with Danny Gibson.
Throughout my lessons, I struggled but Danny Gibson calming manner and the way he helped me to fix my errors I had made in my driving lessons is what helped me to become a confident safe driver. Danny’s humour throughout the lessons helped put my stress levels at ease. Danny Gibson is a fantastic instructor and I am thankful he was able to help me to learn to drive as I wouldn’t be the safe confident driver I am now without him and to pass first time.
Allan Bell – Southwaite
Just want to say a big thank you to Danny Gibson, for getting me through my driving test, and putting up with my relaxed approach to driving haha.
He coaches in a very easy and fun way and you can have a laugh at the same time, he never lets you down, he will make you a more safe and confident driver, I highly recommend Danny Gibson for who ever is starting out to drive for the 1st time.
Rachel Glendinning – Penrith
I just want to say a massive thank you to Danny Gibson for giving me the confidence I lacked with my previous driving instructor to be able to get through my test. I would like to recommend anyone to have Danny Gibson as their instructor because he’s extremely laid back always happy to give feedback positive and negative and always believing in you. Thank you very much for getting me through my test!!” Thank you again!!!
Lewis Windle – Penrith
I would like to give a big thank you to Danny Gibson for all the hard work he’s done to help me to be a safe on the roads on my own and to help me get through my test. I would recommend him to anyone else looking for an instructor who doesn’t just rush for test.
Matthew Martin – Penrith
I was previously learning to drive with another instructor and getting nowhere, I came across Danny Gibson and right away he made me feel at ease just talking to him about driving. After a few lessons, my confidence was up and I was on my way to passing my test. And today I did just that first time and only one minor! I would recommendDanny Gibson to anyone he’s an amazing instructor and an all round nice guy. The friend for life kind of guy. Thank you, Danny Gibson, I am forever grateful.
Ross Metcalfe – Carlisle
After having previous driving experience and not being behind the wheel for nearly 7 years I was introduced to Danny. I made a massive improvement from the first lesson and with his help polished up my driving to get me a pass with only two minors. A very friendly and patient instructor, I’d recommend him to anybody with or without driving experience.
Danny Gibson is a Great Driving instructor and a lovely guy to work with, taught me all the skills I needed to be a safe and competent driver before and after test, I would recommend him to anyone that’s thinking of taking lessons, Thank you so much Danny!
Can’t thank Danny Gibson enough for helping me pass my driving test. I highly recommend what a brilliant Driving Instructor he is thank you Danny.
Danny is a great guy, he makes you feel exceptionally comfortable when driving and gave me all the skills I need to pass my test and drive safely.
What an amazing instructor! I passed first time with Danny Gibson he has the Patience of a Saint A* Driving Instructor.
Eve – Penrith
My time with Danny has proved that no matter how nervous you are, how uncoordinated or clumsy you seem, or what your excuses are, Danny can teach anyone to drive. When I first started with Danny I was a nervous wreck and I thought I’d never have the courage to get behind the wheel on my own or the skills to do it safely, but he has managed to prove me wrong with his relaxed yet professional coaching style. I’ve always felt like I’ve been in 100% safe hands with him, and he’s also managed to put me at ease and give me enough confidence in my own driving ability to finally feel comfortable behind the wheel. I’ve never felt under any pressure with Danny and he’s always taught me to drive within my limitations, but he’s always known exactly how far to encourage me to get the best out of me. He never gets frustrated and has seemingly endless patience and knowledge, and after all my self doubt he managed to help me get my pass first time. Thank you so much Danny for helping me become road safe and bringing out the best driver in me, I really couldn’t have done it without you!
Josh – Carlisle
Thank you Danny for all the lessons you gave me and all the things you taught me for and after test, it has changed my life for the better showing me how to be a safe and ethical driver. I appreciate everything you taught me.

Matthew Bell – Carlisle
“Thank you so much Danny! Excellent tuition and I couldn’t be happier! I will definitely be in contact regarding the pass plus. Your style of teaching is superb and made me feel at ease from the beginning to the end. Thank you again.”
Jonathan Leiba – Carlisle
“As a mature learner with a busy life I wanted to get driving as soon as possible, Danny was very accommodating with his schedule and arranged my lessons to coincide with my work pattern, he taught me not only how to drive but in a safe and responsible manner, the lessons were fun, progressive and at my own pace doing what I felt comfortable with then pushed forward only when I was ready. Danny was quick to recognise any parts of my driving that needed improved upon and tailored his lessons to concentrate on them. He is a great tutor with a positive manner, has lots of patience and will keep his students at ease. I would highly recommend him. Thanks Danny!”
Richie Johnston – Carlisle
“For anyone looking for a great driving instructor look no further! After having numerous instructors over the space of two year I was still having difficulty passing. Two months ago I was recommended Danny by a friend and i’m pleased to say i’m now fully passed and road legal. I cant thank Danny enough, his positive attitude and relaxed way of teaching really helped me become a better driver, bringing me up to test standard in good time. Cheers Danny! Ill give you a shout when I start thinking about pass plus.”
Jessica Eland – Southwaite
“if anyone needs a driving instructor, Danny Gibson is amazing! He helped me to pass my test in only 10 weeks, he also does the pass plus scheme to reduce your insurance price! Honestly amazing!! He’s helped me to be a safe driver and keep being safe even after passing my test! Thank you Danny!
Neil Dooley – Penrith
Danny became my driving instructor after my previous instructor had sacked me for being nervous and a rubbish driver. Over time he’s built my confidence and driving ability up till today when I passed my test. Not only did I leave the test centre today with a certificate but a reassurance that when I hit the road, I’ll be a positive safe driver. Thanks Danny, you’re a superstar.
Tim Graham – Carlisle
Would like to say a massive thank you to Danny Gibson my driving instructor. Well was my driving instructor lol for teaching me to drive. I would seriously recommend him to anyone wanting to learn to drive. Cheers Danny.
Christopher Dawes – Carlisle
I would like to say a big thank you to Dan for all his time teaching me to drive, masses of knowledge, a laid back approach and a good sense of humour are a winning combination when learning to drive. I lost confidence earlier in life with a series of bad instructors and now I’ve passed thanks to Dan’s patience and expertise. If anyone reads this whilst looking for an instructor then you are already at the right place.
Bradley Lloyd Kean – Kirkbride, Wigton
Danny Gibson was very helpful from the beginning of my first lesson. He was careful not to put pressure on me as a new starter and grades my lessons and their level of difficulty very well. Thanks to Danny Gibson I passed first time and I would easily give him my seal of approval for anyone looking for a Driving Instructor.
Kirsty-Beth Walker – CarlisleA big thank you to Danny for his amazing teaching, very laid back and lovely to talk to. Doesn’t shout or scream and is very patient…he is the oracle of driving! Definitely recommend him to anyone.
