Would 100% recommend
I really enjoyed my lessons, Russ was very calm and patient with me, he explained things well and was very informative, I think he would be a very good instructor if you were nervous. Thank you very much for getting me through my test first time with 0 minors,
Russ is an amazing driving instructor who helped me from day one to build my confidence in driving, I was a nervous wreck before my first lesson and my lesson was so great I then looked forwards to every lesson I had! With a Pass first time with 5 minor faults I would 100% recommend Diamond Drive to anyone who is looking for a reliable, laid back, thorough driving instructor! Thanks Russ!!
He was recommended to me by a few friends and I totally see why. He is very patient, very honest and always there to help.
I was a very nervous driver and he really helped to calm my nerves and enabled me to succeed.
Thanks to Russ I have been on the road for 2 years now, and am more than happy to recommend him.
My experience with Diamond Drive has been worth the pennies. Russ is very helpful when it comes to explaining different techniques to use whilst practising manoevers; which I found to be my greatest weakness. I have so much confidence driving now thanks to Russ and I am very thankful for all his help and support helping me to pass.
Best driving instructor ever!:) Always makes you feel relaxed and is helpful without being patronising.
Makes lessons fun and not boring! Very good first time pass rate :-) Good value for money and a nice easy car to drive!"

Just passed my test 1st time with only 3 minors after learning with Russ. He is friendly, patient and reliable. The lessons were always well planned and we covered a lot which meant I learned something new every time. I would strongly recommended him to anyone who is looking to drive. Time and money well spent!
Russ was an amazing instructor and from the first lesson I had with him I was completely relaxed and enjoying driving around. The lessons were always fun and relaxing and he made everything seem so simple and easy for me. I will be recommending russ to everybody, not only does he teach you how to drive safely and very well he also makes it fun and enjoyable and something you look forward to every week. Thanks again Russ!
Russ was an excellent instructor, I would highly recommend him! I was extremely nervous on my first lesson but Russ put me at ease and I was in 5th gear by the end of the lesson! He is very patient and easy to get along with. I passed first time and was doing my lessons for 4 months. Couldn't of asked for a better instructor.
I'd highly recommend learning to drive with Diamond Drive. Russ is a fantastic instructor, very likeable and easy to get on with. He is a great teacher and has an easygoing manner which always made me feel at ease, even when facing new challenges. Most of all Russ had the knack of bringing my confidence back when things hadn't gone quite to plan! If Russ can teach me to pass 1st time after putting learning off for 15 years he can do it for anyone! I always looked forward to our lessons and our chats about football and Saints. Thanks Russ!
Russ has been a great instructor! He comes highly recommended from myself, as he is patient and explains everything you need to learn in a way that makes it easy to pick up.
The lessons were always enjoyable and I always felt calm and comfortable learning to drive with Russ. I passed my test first time with 7minor faults. Thanks again Russ.
I don’t think I could have had a better learner driving experience than the one I had with Diamon Drive! I was pushed to progress quickly in every one of my lessons but never felt that I couldn’t ask to go back and practise anything I wasn’t confident on. I always looked forward to my lessons and have felt that these have contributed to my positive outlook on driving in the future. Could not recommend enough!
I had russ as a driving instructor and he was amazing, I passed first time with only four minors and it was all thanks to him. Hes every easy to talk to and made me fell calm and comfortable when learning to drive. I have and would recommend him to everyone! He's amazing!!
Highly recommend Russ at Diamond Drive Totton. Calm and patient and put me at ease from the first lesson. Appreciated the feedback after every lesson too.
Russ has been an amazing instructor, helping me pass 1st time with only 3 faults. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to learn to drive, especially if you're a nervous driver.
Russ was a great teacher and made me feel very relaxed during my lessons. He gave me the confidence to take my test after a few months and I passed first time! I would highly recommend him and have done so already to friends!
Russ helped with nerves from my very first lesson, and made the whole learning to drive an enjoyable experience. Passing with only one minor fault is all down to russ and his teachings. Would happily recommend diamond drive to anyone looking to learn.
Russ is a such a fantastic driving instructor. He was so patient with me, never missed the lesson. Thank you Russ for everything. I would recommend you to everyone who'a looking for an driving instructor. Money well spent :-).
I would 100% recommend diamond drive. As a late leaner I was nervous about getting out on the road. But with the relaxed nature lessons of the lessons I soon felt at ease on the road and passed my test first time easily.
Highly recommend Russ from Diamond Drive in Totton. I passed 1st time with 3 minors thanks to Russ. He is very professional and used handy email updates and feedback after every lesson. You also have access to a free online theory guide which helped me a lot. Thanks again.
Great instructor, really reassuring and supportive, really built my confidence in all aspects of driving and I passed my test first time so super happy and pleased with my progress thanks to Russ. Highly recommend.
I began learning with Russ 7 months ago! It's something I never thought I'd be able to do! But With Russ as my instructor he helped me get through it! I really enjoyed learning with him, he is fantastic. I'm so grateful for all of his help and now I've passed thanks to him. He's a lovely guy to learn with.
Russ helped me gain a lot of confidence on the road, which I never had before. I always had the best quality teaching, always using the full hours lesson. I always felt comfortable whilst driving the car. Would definitely recommend to others, as it is great value for money.
Would highly recommend Russ as an instructor! Really easy to talk to which will help if you get nervous in your lessons. Very patient and willing to keep working on your weaknesses until you gain more confidence in them. Will miss my early Saturday morning lessons with him! Never thought I could pass my test first time but I did! Thanks for teaching me Russ x.
Russ was really good. I started off a bit nervous, but Russ made me feel more confident quickly which made me enjoy my driving lessons. Russ has a lot of knowledge with driving and frequently explained little details which helped overall towards my test. He was also really good preventing any problems. I passed today on the first attempt with 2 minors, so Thankyou Russ!
Russ was an excellent driving instructor, full stop. I felt comfortable and safe behind the wheel from day 1 due to the great teaching service at hand. With Russ's help I was able to complete both my driving theory and practical test first time and I could not thank Russ enough for that.
Russ Baker is a brilliant driving instructor with 25 years of practice and I would recommend Diamond Drive to anyone wanting to learn to drive.
Excellent driving instructor. Can’t reccomend enough! I think something that really shone out for me was the honesty, if it’s unlikely you will pass and you had booked a test, you would be informed. Interests are with the customers not the profit! Luckily passed first time and can honestly 100% say it was down to Diamond Drive - I couldn’t have done it any other way!
