Comments from recent clients:

Nastia - I've tried to get a driver's license three times over the past few years. Until I've met Lorraine I started to believe it wasn't for me. Pretty soon though I started to enjoy driving and felt like I can finally do it. I was comfortable enough to discuss all of my fears and ask as many questions as I wanted. Lorraine is a talented and kind instructor that will take you from zero to a hundred (NOT! The max speed limit is seventy :P) in the time you need. I cannot recommend her enough. 

Jessica - “Honestly cannot review Lorraine positively enough! I’ve had over 4 different driving instructors and none of them have made me feel as comfortable and confident in driving as she does. She honestly makes learning to drive such a safe, positive, and enjoyable experience. I used to dread going on a lesson, but I really look forward to it now because I know she’s there to help relive the stresses, fears and anxieties and make it fun. I’m such an anxious person usually, but we always manage to have a laugh. She’s just 1 in a million… absolutely amazing.” 

Lucy - I didn’t take to driving naturally for various reasons, anxiety getting the better of me etc but Lorraine didn’t once give up or let me give up either! Her teaching techniques are thorough and extremely helpful, she also has patience of a saint. Will forever be thankful for the driving experience she gave me and will miss our chats x 

C.Ryan "I loved my driving lessons with Lorraine. She made me feel at ease and I found learning to drive with her easy! Well, I passed first time with NO minors I might add! So I think that says it all! What a fab instructor she is. Well that's what I think." 

Donna Dryland "Lorraine has been teaching me to drive for the last couple of months and has boosted my confidence no end. Being in my early 40's, I don't find it as easy to pick up as in my younger days, but with Lorraine's support, I now feel confident in my driving. She is always professional and pushes me to do the best that I can, encouraging me every step of the way. Learning to drive with Lorraine is not only good value for money, it's also fun! I know at each lesson, I have learnt something new and I'm one step closer to passing my test.

I would recommend Lorraine for many reasons, but the most important one for me is how she puts me at ease and makes me believe that I can do it." 

-  driving you through the test!  -
