Hi my name is Sean,

I have been with Andy1st since I started being a driving instructor and thoroughly enjoy being part of the team. The support i have receieved is like just being part of the family.

I cover South Birmingham including Kings Heath, Kings Norton and Moseley.

I relish a challenge and like helping others in every aspect of my job. I am patient, supportive and hard working.

I am willing to accommodate pupils needs as I know everyone is an individual in all aspects.

The (I.A.M.) Institute of advanced motorists advanced driver assessment

Dept of Transport Driver and vehicle standards agency (D.V.S.A.) Driving Instructor test (car). I am Registered as an A grade Approved driving Instructor and fully qualified since 2006.

I am a driving instructor that primarily teaches learner drivers the skills to pass the U.K. driving test, but in addition to this I also train pupils in methods to help pass the theory and hazard perception test. I also am authorised and registered for Pass Plus and motorway tuition. Even if you are a fully qualified driver I can provide refresher / confidence sessions, eco drive (fuel saving) sessions and for those who may drive a car for their business, how about learning safe confident progressive drive skills?

During my time as an instructor I have specialized in very nervous pupils amongst others, but whether you are a novice or not, young or not so young or pick things up quickly or not, your driving lessons will be tailored towards you as an individual. I am committed to teaching safe driving skills not just for your test, but for life! I do this by creating a calm and friendly learning environment inside the car with a professional code of practice at all times but will always put you and your safety first!

I am based in Castle Bromwich, Birmingham covering the following areas:

Your lessons will generally start from home but any local pick up / drop off, can be arranged easily at no extra cost. E.g. college, work, friends or other. I understand that life can be hectic so I always aim to be flexible and will try to fit around your schedule whether it be very early mornings, daytime, evening or weekend lessons you are after. Whether you are after 1 lesson per week or multi lessons per week. A single lesson at a time or double lessons. Intensive courses also available.

Having a driving licence will improve your opportunities in all areas of your life including social, academic and work, I will give you the skills and techniques to drive you forward.

With our roads becoming more and more crowded and busy, the probability of accidents is rising. Coupled with the rise in insurance costs, it’s never been so important to try and avoid that unfortunate bump or shunt. Anything from a slip-up in a car park to a motorway pile up, we here at Andy1st want to help you prepare for life out on the busy roads today.

Whether you are learning to drive for the first time or you’ve had a break from learning and are now returning to it, we are here to offer guidance and support right from the start.  When you are due to take your driving lessons Birmingham, make sure you are fresh and well-rested. This will help your concentration and prepare you for learning. Being tired and preoccupied can make you lose focus and concentration and this in turn can cause accidents.

We teach you the basics of learning to drive and our highly trained instructors take you through the steps methodically and expertly. They are fully aware of how nervous you might be as they were learners once too you know! We specialise in and are committed to helping anyone who wants or needs to learn to drive. We aim to help everyone who comes to us achieve that goal. For some, it doesn’t take very long. They may even choose to take an intensive driving course Birmingham and spend full days learning thus passing their test in a few days. Others may find it a bit trickier and take longer over it. That is fine. When you meet your instructor  and have driving lessons in Birmingham with Andy1st they will spend time watching and assessing you and finding out the way you learn. That way, they can devise a learning package that suits your individual needs. We don’t believe in a one size fits all style of learning. We consider tailor made packages to be much more effective and they save money and time for all those involved.

We pay particular attention to the safety and well-being of our pupils. We want this journey to be a fun one but with a serious message. When you get out there alone, making your own decisions and controlling the car yourself, we want you to be prepared and ready for that nest step. We will teach you valuable hazard perception skills and observational techniques which will help when you are “going it alone”. We also offer a Pass Plus course for new drivers. This is run in conjunction with the Government and works to reduce the number of accidents on the road involving new drivers. We provide experiences in driving at night, in bad weather and on the motorway to name but a few. This course consists of 6 lessons and could reduce your insurance premiums as well as helping you read the road more effectively. Anything that reduces your risk of having an accident has got to be worth doing.

In addition, we have provided some information on accident hotspots. You may think we’re trying to scare you but we’re not! We are simply highlighting areas that require additional care and attention and by bringing these to your attention, you can familiarise yourself with them and perhaps practice them with your instructor.

In Birmingham, we have a lot of tourism and so there are many visitors to the City who are unfamiliar with the surroundings. In the centre of the city, Icknield Street (A4540) and Dudley Road are littered with a number of accidents from slight to fatal. They are both very busy routes into the city and if they happen to be roads you may well travel down regularly, we suggest that you practice on these roads to build up your knowledge of the area. Where the Dudley Road meets Winson Green Road is a notoriously bad junction so take care there.

Another junction where a large number of collisions have been reported is the junction of Hill Street and Navigation Street. Roads that are very heavy with traffic include the Bristol Road (A38), Pershore Road and Lee Bank Middleway. The huge traffic signal area where Lee Bank crosses the Bristol Road is another serious hotspot for accidents.

Moving to the Moseley area of the city, special care should be taken on Wake Green Road and Alcester Road especially at the junctions of Salisbury Road and St. Mary’s Row.

Don’t forget, this knowledge is there to help you, not scare you.

    Andy 1st is a fantastic driving school,I had lessons with another driving school and failed 3 test. My instructor Sean was very pleasant,supportive,fun and dedicated he made me relax and gave me the
    confidence to take my test after 5 lessons with him and I passed, I would definitely recommend Andy 1st and Sean. A massive thank you for all your support and help.

  • Niamh (Friday, February 12 16 08:06 am GMT)

    Andys 1st is a fantastic driving school. Sean was a very patient, dedicated and supportive instructor showing the excellent teaching at Andy1st. Sean was very easy to get along with and was a great
    laugh allowing me to relax and made sure I wasn't under any stress whilst driving. I would definitely recommend both Andy1st and Sean as an instructor. Thanks for all your help.

  • Caleb Reid (Friday, January 29 16 11:56 pm GMT)

    Passed first time with Narinder, he was always punctual and made sure he gave me the full amount of time every lesson. I was also impressed by his huge amount of patience, which encourged me to drive

    It was obvious throughout that his main aim was to make me into a safe driver, which I really appreciated.Thanks again!

  • Rosie Harrison (Wednesday, January 20 16 02:58 pm GMT)

    Just passed first time with Andy! Absolutely over the moon and considering I knew nothing when I got in the car to passing in less than a year I'd say definitely pick this driving school!

  • Vicki williams (Wednesday, November 18 15 06:23 am GMT)

    Fantastic driving school. I had failed once before with another driving company and Passed first time having lessons with Andy. He gave me the confidence I needed. He is funny and I felt relaxed and
    enjoyed every lesson. Highly recommend andys 1st. Thank you.

  • Jodie Crocombe (Tuesday, November 10 15 11:16 am GMT)

    Really good driving school I was so nervous hadn't even started an engine before. Was put at ease and came away from each lesson wanting another! I never thought I'd be able to drive a car Andy1st
    has given me the confidence I needed would really recommend this driving school 😊

  • Julie (Wednesday, November 04 15 01:34 pm GMT)

    I had the pleasure of mark to teach me to drive he was very polite courteous reliable explained things thoroughly as well as friendly and fun to learn from. I passed first time due to his training
    skills and also went on to do my pass plus. As well as an excellent driving instructor he is now a very good friend. The service was second to none and cheap for the quality too. I would highly
    recommend this driving school to anybody who is looking to learn to drive you will not be disappointed. A big thank you to Mark.

  • James ford (Thursday, September 17 15 05:08 pm BST)

    was just starting out! i will be recommending this company to friends! Cheers guys!

  • Daniel (Sunday, May 24 15 07:41 pm BST)

    I passed first time after lessons with Andy , great coach got along brill.

    Was great to get back behind the wheel after few months on and off. after 3 months was easy to jump back to a good standard of road driving resulting in me passing both theory an practical tests 1st
    time .

  • Danielle Rose (Thursday, May 14 15 08:16 pm BST)

    Andy is truly the best instructor I've ever had. After having 2 instructors previously and a failed test, I was majorly disappointed and thought I may end being one of those students who would never
    pass, however 3 days ago I DID! :) Andy instantly made me feel comfortable and his use of humour and fun made the experience enjoyable, rather than stressful. I feel so privileged to have had the
    owner of this driving school teaching me and I couldn't recommend him enough! Thank you Andy :)

  • Justin Ang (Friday, April 24 15 11:11 am BST)

    I passed my first test at Kings Heath with excellent coaching from Sean. I have been undertaking lessons with Sean for about 5 months and the approach to each lesson is catered to my learning
    progress as well as making sure I'm comfortable. I cannot ask for more from Sean and Andy1st driving school. Have and will continue to recommend the school to my friends. Cheers.

  • roberta rooker (Tuesday, April 14 15 05:32 pm BST)

    Passed my test today. Thank you Sean for all the help and encouragement i needed! I will be recommending you to friends.

  • Beth Smallwood (Tuesday, March 24 15 09:46 pm GMT)

    I passed my test first time today after 26 lessons with Andy. I had no experience of driving instructors so picking Andy 1st was more luck than anything else! And it was the best decision I made!
    From the first lesson I felt relaxed and comfortable! Andy made every lesson fun and encouraging! Will definitely recommend Andy 1st to everyone I know! Thank you Andy!!

  • Victoria Kearsey (Wednesday, March 11 15 08:17 am GMT)

    I passed my test first time with Andy yesterday. I've been having lessons since November and I have enjoyed all of them. He is a funny, friendly instructor who trusted me all the time when driving.
    Thanks Andy!!

  • Jo Robinson (Monday, February 16 15 06:18 pm GMT)

    I passed my test back in August and don't think I could have done it without Sarah. She is an excellent instructor who always had confidence in me when I didn't. My last tests were 5 yrs previous and
    I gave up for so long after failing 4 times with a different company. 1 test with Sarah and I passed straight away. Andy 1st is also very good value for money, you get a full hour when previous
    companies only gave me 50mins and the price is excellent. I would definitely recommend Sarah and the company to anyone.

  • Matt Fryer (Monday, February 09 15 05:35 pm GMT)

    Andy was recommended to me and I am really glad he was. Lessons were alot of fun. I would recommend him to anyone else who is thinking of learning.
    Thanks Andy :)

  • Sophie Nash (Monday, February 02 15 07:44 pm GMT)

    Andy is a brilliant driving instructor! I would definitely recommend and have done to lots of others. He gave me so much confidence and makes every lesson fun! He turned me into a fab driver in 8
    months and gave me the skills to pass first time. Thank you Andy! !!!

  • ryan rees (Monday, January 26 15 08:24 pm GMT)

    Thanks to Andy I managed to pass first time today. I can't speak highly enough in how good of a teacher Andy is, he made everything seem so simple and would recommend anyone who is looking to learn
    to drive to go with Andy1st.

  • laura brant (Monday, January 05 15 10:39 pm GMT)

    I passed my test with andy, he is a great instructor and you can have such a laugh with him. Would defintely recommend him to anyone looking to pass. Best instructor i have had!!

  • Peter Eborall (Thursday, December 04 14 11:24 pm GMT)

    I passed my driving test yesterday and have been having driving lessons with Andy1st since i turned 17 in april. Fantastic driving school 100% recomend them. I would even go to say one of the best in
    the country. They support you though your time and believe you can pass 1st time. Book lessons with Andy1st

  • Ben Rattley (Tuesday, November 25 14 05:52 pm GMT)

    I passed my driving test first time, having had lessons with Sean. I was previously with another instructor, from a different company who was useless. Since learning with Sean, it had taken just
    under 3 months. From the outset it was clear what I needed to do and what I could improve on. Sean's approach was brilliant, allowing me to relax and drive better. Most importantly, the whole time he
    had confidence in my ability and put me first (never late for lessons) . I would highly recommend Andy's 1st.

  • Hannah Costin (Thursday, November 13 14 12:41 pm GMT)

    I passed my driving test first time last tuesday, thank you to my instructor Karen. She was brilliant and extremely patient with me. I would recommend learning with Andy\'s first!

  • Amy Fulwood (Wednesday, November 12 14 09:36 am GMT)

    I had lessons with Eddie. I had so much fun on my lessons, I would look forward to them even though I found driving stressful at times! Not only did I enjoy my lessons but I felt completely at ease
    with Eddie and he made everything simple. I am so grateful for him being so supportive of me and for doing whatever he could to get me through my test, including arriving at my house at 6 in the
    morning to give me a lesson before it!
    Thanks Eddie, you\'re the best!

  • Lucy Darby (Tuesday, October 07 14 09:42 pm BST)


    i passed my test first time round with Sarah from Andy1st, and all i can say is honestly she is brilliant! its fair to say i wasn't the most natural driver but Sarah was so patient and just brilliant
    every step, couldn't ask for a better experience and can honestly say if i could learn to drive again i probably would because i looked forward to every single lesson. Would recommend this company
    and Sarah to anybody.

  • Charlotte (Tuesday, October 07 14 09:01 pm BST)

    I passed my Driving test 2nd time with SARAH, and I have to say she is one of the best instructors I have ever had. Not only did she teach me really well she also taught me to never stop believing in
    myself and gave me the confidence I needed to help me to progress throughout my lessons. i would definately recommended this Driving School to anyone wanting to learn to drive and learn quickly !
    Thankyou andy1st and Sarah ! :-)

  • Sheraz Hussain (Tuesday, September 02 14 10:42 am BST)



  • Gareth Abbott (Thursday, August 28 14 11:02 am BST)

    32 year old, passed first time on Friday 22nd August 2014. All thanks to a brilliant instructor, Mark Johnson. Mark is an incredible instructor, friendly and always keeps a relaxed atmosphere in the
    car when things go wrong. He installed confidence in me to keep going and I managed to pass first time in little over four months of lessons. Until my first lesson with Mark, I had never even stepped
    foot in the drivers side of a car but Mark helped me get past any nerves and stay focused on what I needed to do.

    Marks a credit to Andy 1st and I’ll be recommending Mark and Andy 1st to anyone I know who wants to take the step and learn to drive.

  • Sophie Cooper (Saturday, August 16 14 01:42 pm BST)

    Definitely the best Driving school to use by far! Had a great time learning with Andy, after coming from a different driving school after bad experiences he built my confidence back up after just one
    lesson! So friendly, easy going, never shouts at you and overall an excellent teacher!! Highly recommend both Andy and Mark as instructors. :-)

  • Emmet (Monday, June 09 14 08:19 pm BST)

    Just passed my test today with andys 1st Andy was my instructor He made me feel really comfortable and was a great instructor and most of all a really nice guy. I would recommend them to anyone.
    Cheers mark

  • Jasmin willetts (Sunday, March 16 14 11:34 pm GMT)

    I had driving lessons with mark Stewart who was a brilliant teacher and I would recommend him to anyone. Driving didn't just come natural to me but with his patience and tuition I got there and
    finally passed. I have now been driving 9 months and dont know where I would be without it. Thank you mark :)

  • Jamie Simpson (Sunday, February 09 14 07:34 pm GMT)

    hi with thanks to all the hardwork and patience that Andy and Ifty showed me and helped me pass my theory and practical test first time. im over the moon and cannot wait to get on the road. I will
    definitely be recommending Andy 1st to my friends because the instruction was professional and friendly. thank you.

  • julie langley (Sunday, October 27 13 11:44 am GMT)

    hi i passed my driving test 1st time i would like to say a big thank you to mark stewart,he made me feel very relexed from the moment i got in the car.the level of instruction was frist class nothing
    was to much trouble .it was a very enjoyable experience you are a very relaxed patient and very professional teacher,i will definately be recommending mark to other people who are looking to
    drive,Andy your very lucky to have mark working for you

  • Luke Tierney (Wednesday, September 25 13 11:08 pm BST)

    I had just under 2 months worth of lessons with an instructor called Ifty and it was the best thing I've ever done! Whatever instructor you get you are guaranteed to get value for money. I spent less
    on individual lessons than I would have on an intensive course! I cannot fault their services in anyway as they not only teach you to pass the tests but also teach you important things that you need
    to know for driving life.
