I would highly recommend Gordon as a driving instructor. When I was looking for an instructor a lot of people I knew had passed with Gordon, so I decided to go with him and honestly couldn't have decided to go with a better instructor. He's extremely patient and his explanations and experience is one of a kind. Gordon helped me improve my confidence and driving skills so much so that 8 months after passing my test I drove from Edinburgh to Disneyland Paris and back, clocking up over 1400 miles.

Gordon is a fantastic driving instructor. He is professional & knowledgeable about all aspects of driving, and is patient with all students and makes you feel less anxious during lessons! He gives excellent feedback and will revisit skills you are uncomfortable with.

With his ability to share knowledge and experience, Gordon has allowed me to develop from an average driver, to a successful, qualified driving instructor.

His comprehensive descriptions can make seemingly complicated driving situations appear simple, this allows for an very easy learning process.

I always felt that my learning was a partnership, rather than a teacher/pupil scenario. Allowing me to feel free to ask any questions or queries that I had. That great communication made my understanding easy and concise.

Thanks for your assistance.

I’d like to thank Gordon Crosbie and Saltire School of Motoring for all their help over the last year. He has helped me become a successful driving instructor and more recently guided/coached me on my standards check. Really appreciate all the help he has given me and would 100% recommend him to anybody looking for lessons as a beginner or more advanced training to become a driving instructor.

Definite 5 star recommendation

Gordon trained & guided me through my part 2 & 3 stages of my Instructor training. I cannot rate him highly enough for the support & guidance he gave me throughout the process. His techniques, knowledge & personality is second to none. 
Through his help & dedication, he has changed my life & I passed both parts on the first attempt.
I would encourage anyone looking for a change of career within driving instruction or looking to learn to drive to book with Gordon at Saltire School of Motoring.
Top guy, top instruction, five star.
Many thanks Gordon, friend for life!

Gordon's a really good instructor. Very patient & he made my lessons fun. He was great at teaching. I passed first time with only a few faults.

I'd have done well to find a better instructor than Gordon. He is extremely knowledgable about all things driving, which instilled trust and confidence from the very off. He is also very accomodating; we never had any communication issues and we built a great rapport. To Gordon's credit, I have learned not just to pass a test but have learned how to drive, and would have no hesitation recommending him as an instructor.
