Peter is the best thing that can happen to any learner driver. It's more than business for Peter as he'd go out of his way to ensure you're well equipped to drive safe. He has a great personality and makes you feel at home. A confidence booster who believes in you more than you believe yourself, thus making you see the need to give it your best. Peter is very understanding, patient, respectful, caring, jovial and highly professional. I would strongly recommend Eco Trainer.

As someone who has tried and tested multiple driving instructors, I finally found the best instructor and learning experience I could have asked for. Peter is very knowledgeable and provides a comfortable and calm learning experience while making sure to explain WHY you are learning what you are learning instead of just the how. Being taught this way enabled me to really understand how to drive safely, efficiently, and confidently.
Michelle from Randalstown
After trying three different driving instructors, I was left feeling disheartened but after getting in contact with Peter (and trying the automatic), I felt very positive about driving and saw myself rapidly progressing and that was down to Peter and his patience. I would highly recommend Peter to anyone who is wanting to take up lessons.
Warren from Newtownabbey
I have been driving now for more than 25 years, but had always intended to take some advanced tuition at some point, to identify any bad habits that I'd fallen into and to sharpen up my driving skills so as to be a better driver for my own sake, the good of my passengers and for the benefit of other road users. Pete McKelvey really is an outstanding tutor for all of those things I knew I wanted help with, and also with a few things I didn't! I spent half a day having my driving constructively critiqued, with suggestions tailor-made on the basis of careful observation of me driving in different settings. Pete is passionate about good driving and making the roads safer for all of us. I can't recommend him highly enough.
Logan from Ballymena
There are no words to describe how much of an amazing instructor Peter is. Not once did I ever feel any kind of pressure or discomfort while out on the road for the first time and was able to progress amazingly due to Peter’s patience and his all round way of teaching. The experience was amazing and would recommend him to anyone looking to take driving lessons.
Eilis from Ballymena
I came to Peter feeling very nervous about getting onto the road. Each lesson with him made the nerves slowly go away, until now when I can finally say that I feel confident. Peter was very patient with me, he always took his time and always knew the right ways to teach me to suit my needs. He focused on teaching me how to drive and be a confident driver, not just to pass my test. I felt that each lesson with him was very in-depth, I never felt spoon fed, he would always push me to assess any situation I was in and understand where there were any faults so that I could better improve the next time. I would definitely push anyone who is learning how to drive towards Peter as a teacher!
Kurtis from Cullybackey
I passed my test with Peter's help; he was a great tutor, always helping me build my confidence to help me drive safely and responsibly. On a side note he is a really great guy - 110% very patient when it comes to nerves and extremely professional in every aspect. I highly recommend Peter to anyone.
Jayne from Glarryford
I genuinely never thought I could ever get my test until I met Peter, so patient, kind and understanding. He believed in me before I did. If you're looking for an instructor who is considerate and will listen to you with a mountain of patience, Peter is your man!
Maura from Aughafatten
Peter is the best craic as well as being a top notch trainer whom I would recommend to everyone. He trains you to go out and drive safely, economically and confidently on your own. I really enjoyed every lesson even though at times it seemed like I was the worst driver in the world Peter helped me through it. Passed first time!
Ben from Kilraughts
Peter was a great and patient driving instructor. I don't live in Ballymena so he met me in a place which was convenient to me. The way he taught the theory along with the practical side of driving was great, it made sense to me and I understood it all first time. Even when I passed my test he gave a safety talk (which I did find helpful!) before letting me loose on the roads. Thanks Peter you were fantastic and I recommend you to all my friends and family.
Eve from Loughgiel
Peter is an excellent driving instructor with superb knowledge of the skills necessary to take on the roads both during and after your test. Peter explains things in a fabulous way and is very reassuring if you don't understand something. Thank you very much for all your help and hard work Peter, for calming and reassuring me before my test and for giving me a pep talk before I was 'let loose.' Highly, highly recommended.
Leah from Ballymena
The thought of driving has always excited me, but actually learning how to was a completely different matter! I was worried about how I would react with different situations and that my instructor would think there's no hope for me, but with Peter he taught at the speed that was right for me and helped keep me calm! He explained everything wonderfully and passed on many words of wisdom, and it worked! My driving test was a great success and I couldn't thank Peter more for his patience and teaching.
Victoria from Glenarm
I told myself I would never drive again after previous lessons with a different instructor were an 'epic fail'. My nerves kept me from trying for over 2 years, but the time came when living in the country was too much to handle, so I took a drastic step and called ecotrainer. A warm welcome, calming reassurance and a friendly face were all part of every lesson making it a fun and enjoyable experience. After only a few short weeks I did the impossible and passed my driving test! Peter has taught me not only to be safe, but to love and enjoy driving, a feeling I never expected to have!
Kelly from Ahoghill
I really enjoyed learning to drive with ecotrainer. I was very nervous at the beginning but Peter immediately put me at ease. He was extremely patient and supportive and encouraged me all the way. I have built up so much confidence under his instruction and am now a safe and happy driver. I learn best from detailed explanations and theory. Peter has that knowledge and adapted his teaching style to enable me to learn in the way that suited me best. I had no hesitation in recommending him to my sister when she learnt to drive and would happily recommend him in the future.
