My instructor was amazing, she helped me to believe in myself. I have learnt so much and now have so much more confidence with driving. If I struggled with anything she helped me and never gave up on me until I could do it. The LDC workbook was brilliant and helped to prepare for test. I feel much better about driving now and understand everything because it was explained so clearly. The preparation for the test was so helpful and I am really pleased I passed.

The LDC workbook I was given was really helpful and meant I could get an idea of things before going out. Sam has been the most helpful instructor I could have asked for. If I was struggling or lacking confidence, she would always reassure me and go over things if needed.

Sam was an absolutely fabulous instructor. She took me on as a very nervous driver and has been fantastic throughout, sticking with me despite it taking a few attempts. Her methods are great, she makes you feel so relaxed, at ease and has turned me into a much more confident and aware driver. I couldn't recommend her more to anyone she is wonderful.

Sam was very calm and lovely when on my lessons. I was given a LDC workbook which I found very helpful which I truly believed is what helped me pass. Having someone who you find easy to get on with really brings out the confidence, which again having someone believe in me is what helped me to pass.

Sam is a fantastic driving instructor. After a setback with another instructor I contacted Sam at short notice as my test was already booked and only 2 weeks away! She put herself out to accommodate my request, my confidence was a rock bottom but Sam took me on a boosted my confidence no end. It felt amazing to have Sam say I was good enough to pass my test.

Really friendly instructor who gave great lessons while providing the right balance between steady progression and challenging myself on the way. The LD workbook is very useful as a quick reference and for more in depth studying. The online practice questions for the theory test was very useful. Overall, well worth it and I'd recommend to anyone.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time learning to drive with Samantha, she is incredibly patient and very understanding which made the process a pleasurable experience. She taught me to drive at a very high standard and I now feel confident in my own ability to drive to a high standard because of this.

Could not be happier for the lessons Sam has given me. Really supportive and calming throughout the whole process. Actually helps you understand what you are doing/when you get things wrong, how to go about the situation in a better way. Structures the lessons around what you particularly want to achieve which was good. She didn’t mind going over and over things until you were spot on. Would recommend to anyone!

Samantha is a great instructor, she explains how to do things well. She uses the textbooks and draws diagrams to help. The LDC videos are very helpful as they explain everything very well.

Sophie WincottSophie Wincott

A good instructor. Built my confidence. Made me feel comfortable and gave good corrections. The LDC system was useful because I could read about each skill before I did it and I knew what to practice. It was useful to have questions in the back of the book.

Leanne Burgess
1st time pass
My instructor was amazing from start to finish. She believed in me even when I doubted myself and questioned my ability as a driver. She never let me quit and I’m so glad she made me persevere because I passed first time. She was like an instructor and a friend. The LDC system worked to an extent but I found the YouTube videos much more helpful than the workbook as I am more a visual learner.

Sam was the most amazing instructor you could possibly have. Being with Sam from the start of her career, I’ve seen the great progress in her teaching. Sam is calm, understandable and let’s you learn at your own pace. Every lesson was great and truly good memories. Sam believed in me when I had little confidence and all the way until I passed. I will miss lessons with Sam as every lesson was fun. When I went through the book with Sam she made everything clear and used help sheets when I was confused. I honestly recommend Sam to any other learner. I will never forget what she had taught me. Thank you for everything, all the best for the future.

Can’t even thank Samantha enough for how much she has helped me with my driving and my confidence. From day one she has always filled me with confidence and made me feel like I can do anything. Samantha always gives praise where it is due and always makes you aware when you are doing things correctly. I was encouraged to do new things but never made to do things I didn’t want to. I would recommend Samantha to anyone. Thank you so much.

Sam was an absolutely fantastic instructor, she knew where I needed extra help and knew how to boost my confidence when I felt as though I couldn’t do it ! She is so friendly and it makes learning to drive so much more relaxing and easy ! I have really enjoyed learning to drive with Sam. I was a very nervous driver and Sam has helped me so much ! Thank you so much ! The workbook is amazing, everything you need to know is in there and how to do it, it’s fantastic for the theory test as well as the online LDC questions and reading material!

My driving instructor was amazing! After having a bad experience with my last driving instructor she was leaps and bounds better than what I had. She always made me feel safe and calm and I would fully recommend sam to anyone who wants to learn. She really cares and makes sure you work on your weakest points, so you go into test feeling confident. The workbook and videos were extremely useful and helped me correct all the mistakes. I can’t fault the company in anyway and will recommend the company to anyone who is ever looking to drive, especially to Sam!

Sam is great at going at your speed. She never rushes your progress and is great at giving the support that we need. Also Sam gives you all the information needed for test and gives you good time to practice. The workbook was a big help and clearly states what you need to know. The app for the theory test helped me understand what was expected.

Sam was very patient and understood how to make me feel comfortable and supported, throughout all my lessons. I was able to decide how to spend lessons and focus on topics that I wanted to. This made me feel much better as I was able to focus and be supported on less comfortable areas of driving. Overall Sam is a great teacher and would not have passed first time without her.
