Below are extracts of reviews and comments left by some past FSM driving school pupils:

"What a pleasure it has been learning to drive with Francois! from the first time I stepped into the car I felt totally at ease. His teaching methods are fantastic and easy to follow. I would strongly recommend Francois to anyone looking to take driving lessons as I would never have passed 1st time today without his help and support. Thank you again"

"If you are looking for an instructor who not only teaches you how to drive, but is also a good gab and a great laugh to be with, then learn with Frank. I passed my test first time, something I doubt I would have been able to do if it wasn't for Frank's reassurance and keeping me calm! I would also recommend taking the extra motorway lesson, as Frank highlights things you wouldn't think of on your own(or I would not have thought of on my own anyway!) A great instructor and I am so glad he was recommended to me! Thanks for all your help Frank!

"Francois made me feel at ease behind the wheel. I highly recommend him as a driving instructor and his teaching methods. I especially liked how at the end of each lesson he would ask how I felt the lesson had went so that I could give him feedback on anything good or anything which I needed to look and concentrate on at next lesson. Very pleasant man who made me the driver I am today".

"Passed my test first time! I don't think I would have got there without all the help and reassurance that Frank gave. I found him very helpful when learning to drive and found him very encouraging how he made me feel at ease from beginning to end. I would not hesitate to recommend him. Fantastic teacher Thank you!"ss.

Danielle Murray, Inchinnan

"After having lessons with another instructor, I decided to switch to F.S.M and had a number of lessons with Frank that were really helpful. He helps to slow down your driving so that you can be safe but also be confident within yourself and makes you fell that you are actually getting somewhere with your driving. If you are looking for a school with quality teaching, this is the one. Cheers Francois."

"Passed first time thanks to Franky Boy! Great instructor, doesn't rush you and makes you feel at ease, would recommend to anyone who is thinking of taking up the wheel...Thanks for everything Frank!"

Stephen Donnelly,  Erskine

Chief Ranch Dressing Advisor

"I passed my test first time. I was really apprehensive about learning to drive but Frank made me feel really at ease. He is patient, reliable and understanding. I told him my target of passing within a few months and he worked with me to ensure I succeeded. Frank teaching methods are really easy to understand and the handouts he gives are great for consolidating as there is a lot to take in when you begin. He is great at knowing your strengths and weaknesses and working on these. Frank was recommended to me by a friend that passed first time with him last year and I will definitely recommend him to anyone considering learning to drive. Thank you Franky boy, I will miss your joyful songs!!!"

Kimberley Campbell,  Inchinnan

"Today one week on from passing my driving test first time I had my final driving lesson that was an additional lesson of driving on a motorway with Francois at F.S.M driving school and I received the same professional teaching I received since my first driving lessons all those weeks ago. I can not recommend enough choosing Frank to get you behind the wheels of your own car because by doing this you will not only receive first class driving tuition but you will enjoy it from start to finish with a smile on your face. Top driving school and Top Man, Frank, You the man !"

Richard Corey, Erskine

"After failing my test 3 times with another instructor, I changed to Frank and passed my test after 6 lessons. Frank put me at ease straight away by explaining things in an understandable way and he also put me at ease for my test. I passed with only a few minors as a result. Great instructor, will definitely be recommending".

Paul Brown, Erskine 

Chief Ranch Dressing Advisor

"Passed first time thanks to Frank after only 26 lessons!!! Thanks to Frank's patient and calm teaching manner and of course the laughs an jokes over the past few months. Before I was a nervous behind the wheel but now I feel confident and safe with Frank's help! I would recommend F.S.M to any new learner. Thank you Frank, wouldn't have done it without you"

Stacie Reed, Erskine

Director of High Fives, Apple

"I strongly recommend F.S.M to anyone thinking of starting to drive. Francois is an excellent teacher who teaches you at your own pace and does not force you into situations that you do not feel 100% doing. If you feel weak in any area of driving, he makes sure that you no loner feel like that and makes you confident in your driving ability. Choose F.S.M if you want to learn in an efficient and fun atmosphere"

Rebecca Munro, Erskine

Head of Potatoes, The Internet

"Thanks to Francois I passed my test first time a few weeks ago and now I am driving in my car feeling confident and safe. I would be delighted to recommend F.S.M to anyone, great driving instructor who makes you feel comfortable and knows how to have a laugh. The best instructor ever thank you so much Francois."

Rebecca Taylor, Inchinnan

"Learning with Franky was an absolute pleasure and I would highly recommend him. Every lesson, I felt comfortable in the car and Franky made learning to drive such an enjoyable experience! Whenever I had any troubles, Franky was always helpful as ever and was very patient whilst my performance progressed. I passed first time with F.S.M driving school due to Franky's experience and learning techniques. I will certainly miss my weekly lesson with Franky as it was always a joy to learn with him."

Suzie McGraw,  Eskine.

Director of High Fives, Apple

"Having Francois as an instructor was excellent. He works to your own speed and is extremely patient. He is aware of your strengths and weaknesses and does not waste time on areas you don't need to work as much on. Lessons are great value for money and Frank is always reliable and flexible to your availability. I would recommend Frank to anyone looking in learning to drive. He is a great instructor with a good banter and always make you feel in control and safe. Merci Francois !"

Yanoula Munro,  Erskine

"Thank you for the best customer service I have ever had, the many safe and happy years of driving to come and the birthday card which was a nice touch. I have no criticism whatsoever to give you."

Luke Swanney, Erskine

Chief Ranch Dressing Advisor

"Passed on my first try today thanks to Frank! Frank was great, always building my confidence and full of patience. He was encouraging and reassuring every lesson so I always felt I was progressing. Frank worked at my speed, always knew when I had enough and moved on to something else. He was brilliant when I was preparing for my test, he did everything he could think of to help me improve on my manoeuvres! On the test day I felt Frank has prepared me really well so I was not too stressed out and everything went great. I'll happily recommend Frank to anyone wanting to learn, I don't think I could have picked a better instructor. I will miss our lessons, and Frank constant supplies of jelly babies. Wish you all the best Frank and see you soon for some pass-plus lessons."

Julie Purdon, Erskine

"Today I feel so happy having just passed my driving test 1st time this morning! It was all thanks to you Francois for your excellent tuition, never ending patience, and your constant reassurance. I will certainly recommend F.S.M to everybody interested in learning to drive. I can not thank you enough for teaching me to be a competent and safe driver, and I am looking forward to my newly found independence. I wish you continued success with your business and all that remains to be said is "See you out there on the road" Beep beep!

"Francois is an excellent instructor, allowing me to work at my own pace, he was patient and taught me how to drive safely and efficiently. Now that I have passed my test and bought a car, all the lessons were worth the while. Merci Francois, tu es le meilleur !!!"

Chris Mitchell,  Erskine

Director of High Fives, Apple

"I would highly recommend anyone to take driving lessons with Francois, after having just passed my test at second attempt. His teaching approach is thorough but fun and enables you with all the appropriate skills required to become a good driver. By making you feel totally relaxed in his presence you are able to ask as many questions as you need and have the ability of choosing your own learning pace. Choose F.S.M:)!! "

Heather McDowall, Erskine

Head of Potatoes, The Internet

"After trying another instructor and not seem to be getting anywhere fast, a friend recommended Francois and he took me out for an assessment. It seems I wasn't as bad as first feared. With Francois' help and guidance I was soon looking at doing my test and glad to say passed first time. I am absolutely delighted at having passed and I don't think I would have managed it without him. I can't recommend him highly enough. An excellent teacher and all round good guy. I will be recommending him to all my friends. Thanks very much Francois."

Jordan Hunter, Erskine

Chief Ranch Dressing Advisor

"Francois and F.S.M school of motoring provides you with all the necessary tools and knowledge with which to embark on a successful career on the road. First class teaching methods given in a friendly and re-assuring manner help to boost confidence when starting out and in only a few short months I went from complete novice to a confident and competent driver. Flexible hours and one to one tuition also ensure that any individual needs can be catered for as and when required-when learning to drive in Renfrewshire...ask for Frank!!"

Stuart McHattie,  Erskine

His patience and experience really helped me, from getting to grips with a car for the first time all the way to the lesson before my test.

Ashleigh Maske,  Erskine

"First time pass because of Francois expert teaching. Friendly, funny and works as hard as you do to help you to pass. Makes you feel more than comfortable when you first start and helps build confidence quickly when you are behind the wheel. As well as being great value for money, I enjoyed all my lessons and once I get going I will definitely be doing my Pass Plus with Francois. Thanks for everything Frank and I will be seeing you soon"

Gerry McCrory,  Renfrew

"Another first time passer!! Francois was my first driving instructor, and from day one he provided me with a friendly comfortable and flexible service. I felt really relaxed in his company and he gave me ample feedback to help improve my driving performance, either that being from a chat at the side of the road or by a well descriptive illustration on his little sketch book:-). I highly recommend Francois as I was also recommended to him by a first time passer. Thanks Francois and good luck in the future."

Stewart Fay, Mosspark

Alistair Boyce, Bishopton

Head of Potatoes, The Internet

" When I passed my test, one of my friends said that my driving instructor must be a miracle worker too! Francois is a fantastic instructor who makes you feel so comfortable behind the wheel. I looked forward to every lesson and could have kept going at the end. Anyone who is nervous or wary about driving should give Francois a call. You won't regret it. Highly recommended!"

Tony Armour, Shieldhall 

Chief Ranch Dressing Advisor

"Francois came highly recommended to me from my older brother Ian, who had previously passed his test after taking lessons with Francois. I chose to take my driving lessons throughout the summer as I was going to be starting university and thought this was the best time to do it. Frank is an amazing and patient instructor who helps to build your confidence behind the wheel. Excellent value for money and comes highly recommended ! "

Liam Nisbet, Erskine

Director of High Fives, Apple

Daryl Weir, Erskine

"Passed first time today because of Frank. He is a brilliant instructor who made sure I was confident with my general driving as well as my manoeuvres. He does not rush you, however had to give me the odd kick up the backside now and again. Would recommend to anyone"
