Raja, the driving instructor, was most helpful in getting my confidence back after having lost it after not having driven for some time. He took his time and showed me how to drive on uphill, brake control and safety precautions.

I have gained my confidence back and would happily recommend him to instruct other learners.


Raja is absolutely the best driving instructor in Blackburn! As a really nervous driver he has given me the confidence to drive, his calm cool and collected way of teaching really makes you feel safe. He’s very knowledgeable and confident, his teaching skills are brilliant! Highly recommend!

My Kind of Therapy

I Passed my driving test first time with Raja after having around 30 hours! I literally had no clue about cars, let alone being able to drive one. My instructor made me feel really relaxed all the time and talked me through any stressful situations that came up. We spent lots of time going over test routes which made me feel confident on the day of my exam.I cant say enough thanks to Raja to help me become better driver.I highly recommend him to anyone.

Raja was fantastic! had such a great time learning to drive with him. He was very accommodating to my time schedule as I was learning whilst working full time. He is a lovely instructor who made me feel comfortable and confident in my driving skills. I finished my sessions with Raja last week passing my driving test for the first time round with just 3 minors ! i have Raja to thank for my success and highly recommend the school. Thank you Acorn school of motoring.

I highly recommend Acornsom school of motoring, especially instructor Raja he’s very calm, so on my lesson I was always very relaxed and stress free but he’s also very strict,he see every small mistake u make and explain how u should done it and that helps alot. I passed my exam after only 8 hours so I’m very happy that I choose him. I saved my hard earned money and I passed my exam in no time. So I highly recommend Raja to everyone and I promise you, you’ll not regret.

I would recommend Raja if you want someone who you can have a laugh with but can also teach you what you need to know to pass quickly. Before i started having lessons with Raja i didnt even know the basics of driving. I have learnt so much in such little time. If you want to learn with someone with patience and humour you should choose Raja.

Maariyah Awaan

Had Raja for 28 hours in 3 weeks intensive training course, passed first time! I Honestly can’t fault the price, tuition, and depth of knowledge, Raja! supports in the car and outside the car with helpful links, videos and advice. Had a fun 3 weeks with a cool instructor Raja and Passed the test at the end to cap it off. Could not recommend any higher and will definitely tell anyone who is looking to pass their test to go with Raja. Thanks again !

Amber iqbal

My experience with raja was amazing! I highly recommend raja! I had a bad experience previously then started my lessons with raja, and he boosted my confidence and my driving skills! And thanks to raja I passed today

Sabah Rehman

Raja was a great instructor. I took the test to upgrade from automatic to manual, so I already knew how to drive (at least that’s what I thought).

Raja taught me how to drive manual, and made me a better driver. Also I got rid of some bad habits I developed over the years.

Great experience. Very professional.

I recommend Acorn driving school to all in Blackburn or Darwen area.

Shaun Harrington-Lunt

10000000% recomended, I found driving such a struggle when I first started out, Raja stripped everything down and covered absolutely EVERYTHING, I went from a worrying panicked driver to a smooth confident one, never have I met anyone so passionate about his role and his pupils, so passionate he turns up early out of his own time, keeps you updated on your progress, shares alot of helpful videos to your inbox and doesn’t rush you on your way though you could be miles away from home and your lessons about to end.. my test is one month away and I have no doubt what so ever I won’t pass!

My teacher Raja was very patient with my driving from start to finish, and always made me feel relaxed. He was very attentive and before each lesson we discussed what areas needed improving and personalised every class accordingly. He is very positive and a great sense of humor! I would highly recommend Raja as a driving instructor.

Anthony Josha

I highly recommend the Acorn Driving School and specifically my driving instructor, Raja. Having failed my driving test once with a different driving school, I was under pressure to pass my test in a short period of time. Despite the pressure, Raja taught me things that I did not learn with my previous instructor and I passed with a low margin of errors. Raja not only gave me good driving tips but he was also punctual, patient, friendly and reliable. I used to be afraid of driving because of my bad experience with my previous instructor but thanks to Raja I gained confidence and ultimately he made me a better driver.

Bettie Symthwood

As a foreign license holder, Raja was recommended to me by a friend after I had a very (expensive) negative experience with another company that oversold me hours of lessons without teaching me what I properly needed to know for the test. I should have listened to my friend in the first place.what a great teacher! Raja was professional, thorough, and very efficient in his teaching. I had a complicated schedule, which he was able to accommodate, and he was able to get me an expedited test appointment at Darwen Test center. Plus he’s a really good guy. I highly recommend Raja and Acorn school of Motoring.

Raja! what an amazing instructor! First of all, I’d like to personally thank Raja (endlessly) for his hard work, patience and determination in getting me ready for my test in less than 4 months. I have been blessed to have learned from his experience and invaluable knowledge – speaking as someone with absolutely no prior driving experience, the fact I was able to pass my test first time with only one minor is ALL down to him. It was some journey but we did it! In the hands of any other instructor, I dread to think what kind of driver I could have been. Thanks to Raja I am a confident, competent and more importantly safe driver. For anyone who has had bad experiences behind the wheel and needs their confidence boosting, look no further. Raja is the type of instructor you can really relax with not once did I feel nervous behind the wheel – if I made a mistake, he would talk to me calmly and we would persevere until I had corrected it. I genuinely feel I’ve found a friend in Raja and I obviously had to book a Pass Plus course with him just to see him again! Raja is an asset to Acorn School of motoring and deserves all the success in the world. I thank Acorn School of Motoring for pairing me with him and I’ll miss him tremendously.
