Found newcroft a very profesional outfit and all the staff were more than helpful and very accomodating especially the girls in the office who made it very easy from start to finish keeping me informed all the time with emails and phone calls dealing with every aspect of the course. XAnd andy kell who actually taught me was more than competant as an instructor and i came to realize that theirs not alot he doesnt know about all aspects of driving and is always their to answer any questions which is invaluable at certain times.
