My name is Stephen Feest and I am a local, fully qualified, DSA approved Driving Instructor, teaching pupils to drive mainly in the Uttoxeter and closely surrounding areas. I use a Ford B-Max manual transmission car for the instruction which should be able to accommodate the smallest to the tallest of pupils for a comfortable mobile classroom. It is air conditioned and has safety cameras both forward and rear facing. I pride myself on being calm and communicative and endeavour to adapt my style to each individual pupil’s needs.  I am happy to teach even the  most nervous of pupil’s and watch them gain confidence as they progress through to qualified drivers, right through to those who maybe haven’t driven for a while or have lost their confidence and just wish to take a refresher. The test I prefer to use is Burton but will occasionally use Newcastle-under-Lyme.

We have recently added a new addition to the     Pass-sjf training vehicles, a Land Rover Discovery which can also be used to learn to drive in! Lessons taken in the Land Rover will be at a slightly higher rate than the B-max because of the lower fuel economy. Please feel free to contact me for these rates, we will be updating the website with these soon!

I had lessons with Steve for around 6 months and I passed with no faults or minors. Absolutely loved every lesson I had, can talk to Steve about pretty much anything. He coached me to a very high standard through mock tests and testing scenarios which made me into the safe driver I am today. He points out things I’ve never even thought about whilst driving, keeps you relaxed and calm, makes lessons fun and always puts the pupil first – he even came home from holiday a day early so that I could go for my test! I can’t thank Steve enough for what he has done for me, I’m sure I would’ve hated my lessons if I had opted for another instructor. I can safely say Steve is the best in the business. Cheers. Sam C

“Steve is an exemplary driving instructor, who is both knowledgeable and helpful. His teaching methods allow for excellent student progression, as well as safe driving. He puts total commitment to his students and their learning process. As such, he is one of the best people I have ever had the pleasure of being taught by. I genuinely cannot fault my ‘learning to drive’ experience – it has been thoroughly enjoyable. I passed with only 3 minor marks, which is a testament to the high-quality teaching I received. I wholeheartedly recommend Pass-SJF to you.”  ‘Tom H’

These are the sorts of reviews I strive to achieve, so you can be sure I will always do my utmost to ensure that you feel confident in your own abilities to go it alone once you have passed your test.

Well done Harry on passing your driving test. After a lot of hard work you finally achieved your end goal with only 2 minor marks, well done, try to remember everthing I've taught you. Drive safe, keep safe.
Passed with 2 minors on my third attempt! I can say for certain that it would have taken a lot longer if I wasn’t with who I can only say is more coach than teacher. Steve is fantastic and will work with you for hours on end to get done what needs to doing. Lessons are lighthearted and fun, making them a pleasure to take part in. Listen people, look no further than Pass-SJF! Thank you, Steve. Harry Evans.

Keep safe and remember what you have learnt. Steve.

Steve is absolutely amazing. He got me test ready in a couple of months and it’s because of Steve I passed first time with seven minors! Steve is so friendly and understanding. He’s incredibly patient and made driving lessons really enjoyable, while also teaching me how to drive safely and to a really high standard. Thank you so much!

Well done Ryan on passing your driving test, I told you all the hard work and practice would be worth it. Life changing time, stay safe and drive like I taught you.

“Steve was a good driving instructor, he was always punctual and unlike some driving instructors steve is not a money making machine he genuinely wants you to pass. The 2 hour lessons are useful as it gives enough time to go over different manoeuvres and drive in the test areas.”

Well done Tammika on passing your driving test with only 3 minor marks, I told you all the hard work and commitment would be life changing. Congratulations, looking forward to our motorway lesson, you've been a pleasure to coach even through the difficult times. Drive safe and always remember I'm there to answer any questions you have. All the best, Steve

“I couldn’t have asked for a better driving instructor!  After not having the best start to learning to drive, Steve really helped me to get all the skills I needed under my belt as well as boosting my confidence.  He genuinely wants you to pass and will support you until you get there.  Steve had confidence and belief in me from start to finish and I can’t thank him enough! I definitely wouldn’t be where I am now without such a great coach.”

Probably the best Christmas present 'yule' get this year! Safe driving for the future.

Steve is a brilliant driving instructor, I always felt that it was easy to ask him any questions I had about driving, I have recommended him to many of my friends and family and I really appreciated how patient and committed he was when I was learning to drive, I cannot speak high enough of him as a driving instructor as he helped me to pass first time. He always arrived early and would not be bothered if the lesson had to go slightly over if it meant that I got a little bit more practice in. Steve teachers to a higher level than is needed to pass which made me confident for when I had to take my test.

Response : Thank you for the glowing review. My focus on coaching my clients is that they get as much information and practice they need. I will always try to make sure you leave your lesson with a new skill even if sometimes we have to overrun a little. You were a great person to coach always wanting info. Which allowed you the first time pass. Stay safe and just drive carefully. Hope to see you around the town.

Steve is a brilliant driving instructor, very patient and relaxed. He’s a lovely guy and a great laugh! Lessons felt comfortable and I was able to progress at my own pace. Steve has made me a really confident driver and I would highly recommend him to anyone that is wanting to drive!

Congratulations Robert on passing your driving test, a life changing skill is now yours. Safe driving and good luck for the future.
Steve is a great instructor, he got me back into driving after having a break for 2 years giving me more and more confidence each lesson I had with him. I was able to ask him any question about driving as well. I will definitely be recommending him to my family and friends who are coming up to driving age soon. Thanks again.
