I've been putting off getting my licence for years and managed to work up a bit of anxiety about it in the meantime. Rachel was very understanding and patient and her style of teaching was perfect for me - strict enough to keep me right and learning but at the same time her friendly demeanor and nice conversations made me always look forward to lessons. Passed first try and couldn't be happier!

I started driving lessons with Rachel after failing my test twice with another instructor. I lacked confidence and Rachel was able to help build that up again and teach me to expand on my existing driving abilities and build on my skills. Rachel was flexible with lesson hours and was able to work around my busy schedule! She was attentive, patient and created a calm and relaxed atmosphere during lessons. She provided an enjoyable experience and was great at adapting to my needs as an individual. Rachel is an amazing instructor, and I believe passing my test with no minors or faults was down to her skills as a teacher and her ability to make me feel comfortable and confident at the wheel.

I would definitely recommend Rachel to anyone struggling with their driving confidence. She provided the boost I needed to getting me over the line.

A BIG thanks for all your help!

I passed my driving test about 3/4 years ago but hadn't had the opportunity to drive after. Unfortunately I lost my confidence and wanted some refresher lessons with someone who could help polish things up.

I can honestly say that Rachel has been fantastic throughout - from understanding what my fears were, my level of comfort with driving again and what I needed help with going forward. She was always happy to accommodate any requests for specific things like parking manoeuvres or practicing my approach to junctions/hazards.

Rachel was always calm, constructive and encouraging. What a difference that has made! Highly recommend to everyone, especially nervous drivers like me.
