Having left learning to drive for a number of years after previously failing my test, recently moving to a new area and having little confidence in my driving ability, Caroline was happy to take me on and with her support and guidance, I passed! Her patience, instruction and encouragement really helped my driving. I would highly recommend!

I passed my test because Caroline explained in a simple way how to do the manoeuvres which I’d failed in previous tests some years earlier.

I would highly recommend Caroline to anyone who is either experienced or an inexperienced learner. After 10 hours of driving and tuition from a very patient Caroline I have passed my driving test with no minors. Caroline is an all round lovely lady with a vast amount of knowledge and experience who made me feel at ease all the way through.

I had 20 hours of lessons with Caroline and at first I was a fairly nervous driver, but with Caroline’s support I passed my test first time with only 20 hours of lessons. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a patient and knowledgeable teacher.
