It was really lovely to receive this from Kerry today, and so fab to think of her driving her girlies around now:

” I never learnt to drive when I turned 17 and over the years I convinced myself I was a non-driver and found myself developing a real fear of undertaking any lessons.

In my forties and having become a mum, I realised that I needed to take a deep breath and finally take the plunge.

I found Lin after a google search of driving instructors for nervous drivers. I’d already decided I wanted to learn automatic in an attempt to make it a little easier and not have to worry about gears.

I was so nervous our first lesson, but Lin put me completely at ease. I was amazed when I drove along a quiet street – I never expected to be able to do that in lesson one! As our lessons progressed, so did my confidence. Lin never pushed me, or made me feel uneasy or nervous – she really allowed me to take things at my own pace which I really appreciated! Before I knew it, I started to actually look forward to driving.

I took my theory test using some practice software that Lin recommended and was delighted to pass.

We then decided it was time to book my actual test – and 5 months later I found myself sitting with an examiner beside me. 40 minutes later we were back at the test centre – I had a first time pass – I couldn’t believe it!

Lin was a fantastic teacher and I can’t recommend her highly enough. Thanks Lin!”
