INDEPENDENCE!!!
Sally is an amazing driving instructor who has a very bubbly personality which makes you at ease whilst driving. She has a lot of time and patience for her learner drivers through lessons and tests. She helped me through my tests when I was beginning to lose faith in passing and secure a re test as soon as possible. She also sent additional helpful videos on issues I was struggling with and top tips on how to handle the pressure of tests. If I could rate higher than a 5 I would, i'd recommend Sally to everybody. A huge thank you Sally for all your all you've done this past 7 month's for me.

FIRST TIME PASS!!
Sally wasn't my first instructor but now after passing she will definitely be my last! Coming from someone who has had multiple instructors and picked up and put down driving a few times .... I can honestly say Sally has been the one instructor that helped things click into place for me. Her kind and friendly approach makes it a comfortable environment to learn in and I felt a huge sense of achievement not just when I passed my test but after every lesson with Sally. Anybody who's wanting to learn to drive and wants to do so with a knowledgeable, personal and proficient instructor then Sal is your gal! I'm really going to miss the weekly laughs and banter, if there's one negative I can think of on my entire journey with Sally, its the fact she supports the wrong football team in Manchester hahaha! Thank you again for everything, it feels like now I can start a new chapter in my life and move onto bigger and better things from here onwards :)

INDEPENDENCE!!!
I'm going to start off saying Sally is a wonderful person as well as a driving instructor. When I first started lessons I was nervous to be in the drivers seat for a change, but the nervousness didn't last long with Sally's welcoming and friendly personality plus how easily she made me feel comfortable and also made me laugh. She's very understanding, you are able to go to her with your queries or worries. Sally is very knowledgeable and her teaching technique is perfect, I found the way she explained things easy to understand. She was very patient when I didn't always understand or got something wrong. Overall I definitely highly recommend Sally to whoever wants to learn, you'll have a great experience as well as gaining a friend through the journey.

FIRST TIME PASS!!
Sally really has been a 5 star instructor from day one, she provided all the driving information and rules of the road to make sure I passed my test and become a confident and competent driver, taking time to explain things so I understood them and then asking loads of questions to check I knew what was what. She even made manoeuvres videos to help with practice outside of lessons and also sent me other useful videos too. The LDC workbook was really good too, helped explain stuff and confirm my knowledge and understanding. Sally worked out very quickly how I learnt best using a mixture of practical practice, videos, diagrams and questions to help me work things out myself too. I would hundred percent recommend Sally and LDC to anyone I know wanting to learn to drive!

FIRST TIME PASS!!
Loved every lesson with Sally, I was really nervous before starting my lessons but once I started them I really enjoyed them and looked forward to the next one. I felt super safe with Sally and any mistakes I made were discussed and a plan of action put in place to try and execute on the next attempt, a perfect learning environment for me. I'm so grateful for all sally's help in ensuring a first time pass for me, thank you again Sally!

I DID IT !!!!
I started lessons with Sally after already taking and failing a test which totally knocked my confidence and made me really anxious. Sally worked with me and slowly built my confidence back up and helped me seriously reduce my anxiety, she never let me give up and truly believed I could 'do this' I'm so grateful for this or I wouldn't be where I am now, passing my test and finally being able to drive my car about. Every lesson was helpful and I learnt and worked out so much in the time we had together 💕

Sally was an amazing instructor with an unreal amount of patience. She made me feel confident in my ability to drive right from the very start. Lessons were always fun and we always had a laugh together which made me feel so much more comfortable and at ease. The LDC workbook was a great resource too, it gave me all the info I needed to pass my test and be a safe driver. I really enjoyed learning to drive with Sally.

Sally is an amazing instructor, she gives really good instructions and is very calming & comforting if you are generally nervous. She is very helpful with identifying your strengths and weaknesses and finds great exercises to develop your weaker areas, skills that can be improved on. She is also very funny and you will definitely enjoy her lessons and have a laugh or too along the way. I'd highly recommend lessons with Sally, she will help you learn to drive safely and pass your test.

FREEDOM !!!
Before I started lessons with Sally I was worried about driving and didn't think I would be able to do it, but after having a few lessons I started to feel comfortable with driving and more confident in my abilities. The lessons with Sally were tailored to my needs and I knew what I needed to work on outside of lesson times with my private practice, any mistakes I made both during lessons or outside of them I knew what I had done wrong thanks to what I had learnt during each lesson! I couldn't recommend Sally enough to anyone who wants to learn to drive, especially if you're a bit nervous, she's awesome and makes you feel right at ease! :)

I PASSED!!
Sally has been the best, most kindest and patient instructor ever! I came very nervous to Sally's lessons following lessons with a previous instructor that didnt work out. Sally allowed me to learn at my own pace and made sure I was comfortable and able to master all the skills that I needed to make me a much more confident and competent driver. She always remained positive and kept control if I did something wrong, we just discussed what happened, the consequences and let me correct my actions myself. After my 1st and 2nd test fails she was very encouraging, we worked together on my test faults and Sally was great managing to secure a short notice test date that I then went on to pass!!!! Sally is the best choice for anyone who is nervous about learning to drive and needs a bit of time to get comfortable in a car and can show real patience :)

I PASSED!!
The teaching methods and engagement that Sally gave were fantastic. Sally was very good at explaining tasks and skills to practice in such a way that it made it really easy to follow and understand why it was important, making it easier to improve on personal driving weaknesses. All the LDC resources that were provided were also extremely useful for getting ready and fully prepared for my driving test.

I DID IT !!!!
I booked a week's intensive course due to work and shift commitments and was able to plan my weeks lessons well in advance with planned time off work. Having never driven a car on the road before and starting from scratch Sally was very quick to pick up on my apprehensions and quickly put me at ease, she is easy to talk to and very calming which gave me the confidence to get straight on with it, she also very quickly worked out that I learnt best from simply 'doing' and repeating things until they became second nature. We'd always have a chat at the beginning of a lesson, decided what we needed to practice and then periodically review to see how it was going, if we needed to change anything or increase the challenge to ensure I could put into practice what I'd learnt in a new area. Sally was great at explaining techniques for me to try and brilliant with getting manoeuvres spot on. Sadly I failed my first attempt at test but following lessons we concentrated on what needed to be improved and then I did it! Was fantastic working with you Sally, thank you for all your help 😁

I DID IT !!!
Sally communicated really well with my educational needs, instruction and road awareness. She always supported my learning with a step by step process using support strategies to enhance my driving skills, she reassured me when I felt nervous and always encouraged me to keep me going and increase my confidence behind the wheel. She reiterated certain points to improve my awareness and planning when entering unfamiliar built up areas areas and vastly increased my confidence with driving at speed on dual carriageways and open rural roads. Sally was brilliant when I lost my confidence with gear changes, helped me to keep calm and showed me how to ensure I got the right gear first time and what to do if I got it wrong and started to fall apart, this I will take with me and use, if needed in my own car :) Ultimately she gave me the proficiency and confidence to successfully go on and pass my driving test!!

FIRST TIME PASS!!
Absolutely amazing! I could not have wished for a better instructor, I always felt comfortable, calm and safe with Sally because she always believed I could become a safe and confident driver. Sally made every lesson exciting and had great techniques to help me accomplish manoeuvres successfully. The LDC workbook is FAB, answering the many questions I had and reading the test criteria section confirmed what I had learned, practiced and polished was exactly what the examiners were looking for, including the show me and tell me questions. BRILLIANT INSTRUCTOR :)

FIRST TIME PASS
I thoroughly enjoyed learning to drive with Sally, She always made the lessons fun and gave me tasks to work on in chunks to ensure I had the best chance of passing, 1st time! She was always happy on our lessons and had a way of gently pushing me out of my comfort zone, making me experience more & anticipate things that could happen to become a better driver. I made great progress with Sally & I will miss our lessons now, being able to take everything i've learnt in our lessons in to my own private practice and now going forward In to my own driving :)

I cant thank Sally enough for all the help and support provided to get me to believe in myself and believe that I could go on and pass my test, even when I didn't believe in myself, Sally did! I would recommend Sally to anyone wanting to learn to drive, she is extremely supportive, caring and understanding, even when I got so frustrated with myself Sally was so calming and would always try another way to explain something until we were both confident I was totally happy, she drew diagrams and also sent me videos to watch at home which was a great way for me to learn, this meant I always really looked forward to our next lesson.

FIRST TIME PASS!!
Sally was a very patient, kind and encouraging driving instructor, from or very first meeting she made me feel immediately comfortable and I wasn't embarrassed if I made a mistake. When I did make mistakes or panicked Sally would always react in a calm and reassuring manner. Due to me feeling so comfortable with Sally I thoroughly enjoyed all of my lessons and really looked forward to the next one, therefore helping me make more progress. At the end of every lesson we always had a chat about what to be focusing on with my private practice and what I would like to concentrate on next lesson, Sally would then arrive the following week with a great plan of action to go out and have a go at. Lessons were very well thought out and suited my abilities where I was challenged but not overwhelmed. The LDC workbook I received also really helped me track my progress, check my knowledge with the quizzes, and help prepare me better for my test, knowing better what was required of me. I would really recommend Sally as a driving instructor she was amazing.

Buzzing I passed
Really enjoyed all my lessons with Sally she was always very helpful with all attributes of getting me ready for both my theory and practical tests. She used many different teaching methods to help me fully understand anything I wasn't sure about and having the LDC workbook to read and do the quizzes helped me too. Sally is really easy to talk to and super approachable with anything I needed or wanted to do or even just talk about.
