I cannot recommend Paragon driving school highly enough...Mike surely is a knight!
He has taken me from a dithering wreck behind the wheel to been worthy of a driving licence.
His calm and relaxed approach was second to none and the only downside to me passing my test is i no longer have lessons!
Nobody was more nervous than me behind the wheel but Mike gave me the confidence I needed.
Thank you Mike and thank you paragon driving school ***** all the way!

If you're looking for driving lessons in the Wakefield area look no further than Mike.
Got me to the standard required in order to pass first time.
I was nervous about learning to drive due to starting later than most. However, Mike was friendly, encouraging and supportive as an instructor.
He never made me feel disheartened or embarrassed if I made an error.
I could not recommend enough.
Rebecca - May 2019
I passed my test just hours ago with the brilliant help of Mike! First time!
To put it lightly, I’m an extremely bad over thinker so I made driving a million times harder for myself and doubted myself.
Mike was very calm and understanding; he was so relaxed, kind and patient with me and got me through it all in a breeze!
He believed in me the whole way through! My only problem is, is that I don’t have him to discuss Game of Thrones theories next week for a whole hour (sometime even two)!
Thank you so much for being the best instructor ever!
I would 100% recommend using Mike and Paragon Driving School.
Olivia - February 2019
So I passed my driving test yesterday with Mike, and I could not recommend anyone more.
He believes in you no matter what and pushes you to your full potential, while being so kind and supportive!
Such an easy person to get along with which really helps when you're nervous about driving.
5 stars and more, thank you Mike!
Ali - January 2019
I passed my test today with Mike, literally the best driving instructor in Yorkshire! Such a fantastic instructor but also one of the nicest guys I've ever met.
The one downfall is that I no longer get to have a weekly catch up with him. Highly recommend without the encouragement and support from mike, I could never have done this.
Thank you Mike, you’re a legend xx
Lydia - January 2019
I passed with Mike this morning and I am over the moon. He always shows belief in you even in your first few lessons.
I would 100% recommend him to anyone as even when you don’t feel confident in your driving, you always know he’s confident in you.
By the end of my lessons me and Mike had developed a good friendship and I wouldn’t have passed my test without him as my instructor.
Isabelle – November 2018
I passed my test last Monday after having lessons with Mike.
Such a great instructor and helped me to build my confidence with driving.
He made me feel comfortable while driving and always believed in me.
I can’t thank him enough. I wouldn't have been able to do it without him!
Rebecca – October 2018
Excellent instructor with so much patience!
Mike has been brilliant from the start and you couldn't ask for anyone better to teach you to drive. I had no confidence when I started learning and he built it straight up.
I couldn't have done it without him. Thank you so much Mike!
Taylor – September 2018
I started lessons with Mike after my wife passed her test with him and she couldn’t recommend him enough to me!
Mike was very friendly and easy to get on with right from the start! Driving lessons were always done with a smile!
Fantastic instruction always really clear and well laid out and great feedback that was always really useful. Big thanks to Mike for all his help!

"I just passed my driving test first time, I am over the moon and Mike has my complete gratitude.
He was excellent from the beginning in teaching the basics of how to drive a car, the safety aspects of being on the road and how to control your nerves as well as the vehicle.
All of this he does with encouragement and enthusiasm whilst maintaining a speed of learning suitable to the individual.
However, it is when Mike begins coaching you that you realise how excellent a teacher he is.
He helps to turn the basic knowledge he has shared into something viable as he turns you into a confident, road aware driver.
His patience is infinite and his love of driving is contagious.
I know for a fact I
wouldn't have got through my test without having him as my tutor.
Thanks again, Mike. Your effort will always be remembered and appreciated!"
Kate - June 2018
"No matter what I write here it will never do Mike enough justice. As soon as I met Mike I knew he was the one that was going get me through to getting my licence.
From the word go he made me feel at ease and gave me confidence I never knew I had. By the end of my journey, Mike was not just my driving instructor he was also a valued friend.
I would highly recommend anyone to take this life changing journey with Mike.
I honestly couldn't have wished for a better instructor."
Samantha - May 2018
"A huge huge thank you to Mike!!
He is so easy to get along with and puts you at ease from the very moment you enter the car.
I started off as a very nervous driver but Mike was always patient with me and enabled me to feel confident behind the wheel.
I couldn’t recommend him highly enough!
I will miss my lessons and his great banter (not so much the dad jokes though haha). 5 stars!!"
Haley - February 2018
So the beast from the east arrived in Wakefield bringing snow on the day of haleys driving test!
First and second test in the morning both cancelled due to the bad weather!
Haleys test time arrives and she goes out despite a heavy snow storm in the middle of the test, guess what she passes, brilliant drive despite the weather, well done Haley!!!!!
(Awaiting full review)
Lindsay - February 2018
"Passed my test this morning on my first attempt, with not a little but a lot of help from Mike.
Couldn’t have had the confidence to drive or even do my test if it wasn’t for him.
Couldn’t recommend him more for a learner or even a nervous driver like myself.
Thank you so much Mike!"
Craig - November 2017
Mike from the very start believed in me and brought the confidence I never thought I'd have.
He showed me lots of different ways of how to reverse and the tips he tells you work every time effortlessly.
He's so warm and welcoming makes you want to learn more and more.
His learning methods are 100% best in the business.
His character makes you feel like you're driving with a friend and it helps you calm down and relax when driving. His knowledge of the tests makes you able to prepare efficiently.
I'll miss all the chats and fun we had behind the wheel!
Thanks a lot for making driving so easy and thanks for been a great friend.
I hope the driving charity fund for children in need grows and grows!
Lucy - October 2017
Mike is absolutely fab!
Would never have thought I’d have been passed as quickly as I did all thanks to him.
He was always patient and made you feel so comfortable behind the wheel.
Enjoyed every lesson I had.
Massive thank you to him for always being such an amazing instructor and getting me through my test.
Would highly recommend him to anyone!
Joanne - September 2017
"A 'MASSIVE' THANK YOU to Mike for all his patience, guidance and support in helping me achieve my goal.
I couldn't have done it without him.
Mike always made me feel relaxed and was always willing to go the extra mile.
Mike was always cheerful and pleasant.
I am going to miss the banter when I made silly mistakes.
I would definitely recommend Mike to all you new learners!!!"
Katrina - August 2017
"I just want to say a massive thank you to Mike! Especially on the day of my test! I was a nervous wreck and he calmed me down straight away!
I never believed in a 1000 years I would pass my test first time!
But he believed in me!
He really is one in a million! And has the patience of a saint!
I really am going to miss our Saturday morning banter!
Once again Mike thank you so much."
Nichola - August 2017
"Fantastic Mike got me through my driving test today!
Mike is the most amazing instructor, builds your confidence from the word go, I can't thank Mike enough, having faith in my ability and laughing at my daft mistakes.
Thanks Mike for everything, passing my test will give me my freedom and open up new opportunities.
I would highly recommend Mike."
Joe - June 2017
"Mike is an exceptional instructor!
Both his teaching and his help and the help and support he gives with continuous words of encouragement are second to none.
I don't think I could have got through my driving test without him and I would definitely recommend him to anybody needing lessons.
Thanks again Mike."
Shaun - May 2017
I was very nervous to start with and wasn't able to get the hang of driving with another instructor, but switching over to Mike helped a lot.
He's very engaging and calming and it didn't seem to annoy or faze him whenever I made a mistake, which is an A+ trait for a driving instructor to have.
Lessons were always enjoyable and he really helped me get ready for my test.
Emma - May 2017
"I passed my driving test with mike despite being so nervous and lacking confidence in my ability.
Mike always made me feel safe and he was so calm and patient, a real boost when things aren't going the way you want!
I will really miss my lessons with Mike, such a lovely guy and I am so grateful that he got me through my test.
Mike's lessons are well worth the money. He's a fantastic instructor and someone you can have a chat and a giggle with."
Emma - April 2017
"Mike is a wonderful driving instructor and he got me through my test first time in just 5 months!
His prices are very reasonable and you always get your moneys worth. He's so calm and patient so you have nothing to worry about if you get a little nervous, you're be in safe hands!
I would highly recommend him to anyone and now that I've passed my test, I'm going to miss his lessons"
Maegan - April 2017
"If I could give a higher rating than 5, I would!
Mike is truly one of the best instructor's around, because he is extremely patient, kind, accommodating and has a great sense of humour which always makes the lessons enjoyable.
Thank you Mike for seeing me through and staying sane in the process!
Could not have done it without you!
Will miss my lessons with you but I am so happy that I've passed – First time too!!
Keep in touch!"
Nicky - February 2017
"I could never have passed my driving test without Mikes constant kindness, patience and encouragement.
Excellent driving instructor who had turned me from a nervous wreck to a confident proficient driver.
Would highly recommend using Mike to anyone who is wanting to take their driving lessons.
Will miss our weekly drives very much. Thank you Mike Moorhouse for everything. Look forward to doing my Pass Plus with you soon. ????."
Paige - January 2017
"Mike has been an amazing driving instructor and I have had a great experience driving, I would highly recommend paragon driving school to anyone wishing to take lessons.
When I first started having lessons I was very nervous and Mike made me feel at ease and comfortable, which them progressed to helping me pass my test.
Thank you so much Mike for all you support and help with this great experience x."
Hollie - January 2017
"Mike is an excellent driving instructor.
He's really friendly, easy to get along with and patient.
I would definitely recommend him!"
Also did my Pass Plus with Mike and Paragon Driving School, not only did it save money on my car insurance, but a really great experience, well worth it!

Jordan - November 2016
On the 14th November I passed my driving test first time in pontefract with mike.
He is the most patient person I have ever met. I started learning in February after my second lesson I nearly quit as I was so scared and didn't think driving was for me.
Mike helped me get over the fear of driving. He is second to none, he's the best.
Thank you mike.!!!
Lucy - November 2016
Just passed my driving test with the help of Mike from Paragon driving school. I was really nervous when I started my driving lessons, but Mike made me feel instantly calm and relaxed.
He is an excellent instructor, who encourages you constantly and makes you believe in your driving ability.
I would highly recommended Paragon driving school and Mike.
Amy -October 2016
Mike is a great driving instructor who was always calm and could always explain what I had done wrong and what I needed to do to improve.
I had two driving instructors before I came to Mike and I had a real dislike for driving which Mike helped me overcome.
I feel I made progress with Mike quicker than with my other instructors and he really encouraged me and believed I could do it when I was having doubts.
Mike is a genuinely nice, down to earth man and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
Heidi - June 2016
I have just passed my Pass Plus with Mike and Paragon Driving School, I learnt a lot and it was great catching up with Mike again, I actually missed my lessons with him! The motorway part of this course was especially helpful! I now feel confident to travel on a motorway and I never thought I would say that! Apart from that I also saved over £500.00 of my first years insurance, I can highly recommend this course!
Beth E - February 2016
I would definitely recommend Mike to anyone!
He always made me feel comfortable from the very first day and helped me become a very confident driver.
His relaxed and humorous personality meant that he is now a friend as well as a driving instructor and I am so glad I chose to start my lessons with him.
Thanks for everything!
Steph - February 2016
I remember back at the beginning how nervous I was about meeting Mike and having driving lessons for the first time.
The first time I set foot in the car Mike made me feel so comfortable.
He never once shouted at me no matter how badly I was driving, this helped my confidence immensely. I would recommend him to anyone - if you're wanting to learn to drive I would definitely choose Mike!
Thank You for everything, you are seriously the best!
Jessica - January 2016
Mike is a friendly understanding very patient instructor who always turned up on time. He answered all my stupid questions without making me feel stupid. He taught me techniques that I will continue to use throughout my driving life. If you want to not only pass your test but become a safe driver than Mike at paragon driving school is for you!
