Driving lessons in ENglish in Schaffhausen

This is NOT any form of cheap advertising blurb.

I add this post because possibly others, like myself, need a driving instructor who could teach native English speakers and who is current and teaches in Schaffhausen.

I was recommended a guy called "Tom" and he has his own driving school "Tom's Driving School" in Schaffhausen.

I used Tom myself. His English is very good and he teaches well and he understands about cultural driving differences between the UK and Switzerland. This means he can help those "transitioning" too.

I don't want to say any more in case this appears too much of an advertisement.

So, if you are looking to learn how to drive in Switzerland, are looking for a good English speaker instructor and you live in Schaffhausen, "Tom's driving school should be on your list of schools to look at.

Once again I hope the moderator does not want to place this under "Advertising" as it is NOT. It is simply telling native English speakers that I have first hand experience of a driving instructor who I can guarantee speaks really good English and teaches well.

Re: Driving lessons in ENglish in Schaffhausen

My post was genuine, sincere and honest. I actually find your post "Phil" to be accusatory, offensive and detracting from the real purpose of this forum, which is to pass on help and advice, based on experience of living in Switzerland, to help those English speakers living in Switzerland.

I looked for a recommendation for an English language capable driving instructor in Schaffhausen but could find none. I scoured the internet and not just this forum. I found none.

After some trial and error and speaking with others who live in Schaffhausen, I tried Tom's school. The results and experience were excellent and I subsequently find out he is a well liked and respected guy in this area.

So, for those who want to learn to drive from new, or want to transition to Swiss driving practices and want instruction from a current instructor who speaks good English, I simply recommend this guy.

Please Phil resist replying to this one if you cannot refute what I write, unless you can also, based on genuine experience, also suggest good, English language speaking driving instructors, who live in Schaffhausen.

Why you need English speaking as it says on your profile you speak German

well, a mod informed me that my post has gotten some people in a bit of a tizzy.

i'm not sure why my post should be considered "accusatory, offensive and detracting from the real purpose of this forum" when all i did was praise the OP for taking the effort to register and advertise this useful service?

there seems to be some inkling of defensiveness and that something should be refuted? where this could come from? not from my single sentence of praise, surely?

i wonder what could have generated so much protest? nevermind. it's friday. i'm going to read a bit of Hamlet.

This is EF, if a Trol or a spammer pulls the victim card many people immediately forget everything and feel sorry.

Re: Driving lessons in ENglish in Schaffhausen

I know many native English speakers don't speak very good English but I'm calling red wine with fish on this one.

Nothing wrong with red win with fish. Depends on the fish. And how it's cooked. And the wine, of course.

Re: Driving lessons in ENglish in Schaffhausen

I used Tom too one year ago and i passed the Driving Test on first trial. He knows the tricks of industry and out from experience he knows exactly which direction the Driving Test might go...
