Having been driving on and off for months and had 2 different instructors who I hadn’t had the best experience with, Sandra was brilliant. She got me through my test with a first time pass and just 2 minors and in under 4 months. She is friendly and welcoming, easy to talk to and a great instructor who I wouldn’t have gotten through my test without! Thankyou Sandra.

Sandra has been an extremely attentive, patient, and informative instructor. She takes things at your pace and helps strengthen your weaknesses in a very constructive way. Could not have asked for a better instructor. I would 100% recommend her to anybody, from beginners to more experienced drivers! (If I could give 6-stars, I would).

I passed my test a couple weeks ago and couldn’t have asked for a better instructor to have learnt with. Sandra is amazing, she has a great sense of humour and is very patient with you. She always has a funny and memorable poem for each aspect of driving which I thought was key in helping me learn. She not only teaches you all the aspects of the driving test but also teaches you to get ready for the roads after you pass. I always looked forward to my lessons with Sandra as I always knew I was going to have a fun time.

Sandra is brilliant! She got me test ready in 8 days and I passed first time! All of our lessons were fun and engaging and she found unique and memorable ways to teach all the key concepts. Driving lessons can often be a chore but with Sandra it never felt this way. Sandra was super calm and friendly throughout the whole process - I would highly recommend to anyone!

Sandra was my second driving instructor and from the get go she made me feel so relaxed which was amazing because nerves was one of my biggest issues. Couldn’t have asked for a better instructor and I would highly recommend Sandra for driving lessons.

All the reviews I read here are absolutely spot on - Sandra is simply a fantastic instructor who has the gift of making lessons fun and effective at the same time. Now that she's helped me pass the test, I'll really miss our drives around the area. Thanks Sandra, you're the best!

I met Sandra in October, after having driving lessons with a different instructor for 2 years previously and failing every time my driving exam. In 3 months, she taught everything I needed to know about driving. She was patient and fun and I enjoyed our lessons very much. She built my confidence,and today, I passed the driving test. There are only a few people and moments in our lives that really make a difference, and for me , Sandra will always be one of them. Me , Ingrid, and Alex will always be grateful to you. If you are looking for the best driving instructor, Sandra is the one !

My son has just passed first time. He says she is a very good teacher, patient and also funny. It was difficult to find someone to give my son lessons due to his busy college schedule but Sandra is a reliable and prompt communicator, so we were able to sort out times that suited . Thank you Sandra.

Testimonials

“Sandra is one of those rare driving instructors that fulfils what makes a good driving instructor great: having the biggest patience for a student driver whose dyslexic, and autistic. She took my needs on board and made me gain confidence in my ability to read the road and trust myself behind the wheel. Her use of her colourful magnetic cars on a junction board proved essential and useful to my learning- they were fab visual aids. Sandra never lost her spark with me, and believed in my driving abilities. She has been a friend, and I could not ask for anyone better. Thank you for all your help Sandra. I look forward to doing Pass Plus with you. Back for more!”

Licence and Test Information

Obtaining Your Licence

In the UK, driving tests are conducted by the Driving & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). Check out the website at www.gov.uk , then click on the link for Driving and Transport. This contains all the information that learners and new drivers need to know.

Before you can learn to drive a car, moped or motorcycle you must apply for a provisional driving licence. If you already hold a valid full driving licence and want to learn to drive larger vehicles, minibuses or buses, you will need to apply for provisional entitlement for these vehicles. You have to be 17 years of age to obtain a provisional licence, but you can apply up to three months before your 17th birthday.

You can apply for your first provisional driving licence for a car, moped or motorcycle using the government’s secure and easy to use online service at: gov.uk/apply-first-provisional-driving-licence Or the application form (form D1) can be obtained from your local Post Office if you would like to apply by post.

The Theory Test
Before you apply for your theory test you will need a provisional licence. The website www.gov.uk , will give you all the information you need to know. We suggest that you only book your Theory Test through this website, as there are rogue traders out there offering to book for you at inflated prices (the current fee is £23.)
The Practical Test
The practical test will last approximately 40 minutes beginning and ending at your local Driving Test Centre. Throughout the drive, you are permitted a maximum of 15 driver faults. A serious or dangerous fault would result in a fail. We will work with you to agree on a test date, making sure you feel ready and ultimately confident to drive alone. We will do practice mock-tests so we can focus on any areas that need brushing up before test day. We are happy to book a driving test on your behalf, but if you would like more information go to: www.gov.uk , The current test fee is £62.00.
The Pass Plus Course
Pass Plus is an established training course aimed at new drivers. It was designed by the Driving & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) with the help of insurers and the driving instruction industry. Statistics show that new drivers are more likely to have an accident in the first two years after passing their test. This is because of their lack of driving experience.

Pass Plus builds on your skills and knowledge. It will teach you how to anticipate, plan for and deal with all kinds of hazards, to help you become a more confident driver. You can take a Pass Plus course at any time. However, it’s mainly aimed at new drivers in the first year after passing their test. Some insurance companies may offer a discount on successful completion of the course. Check out www.gov.uk/pass-plus,if you would like more information.

Pass Plus takes at least 6 hours and consists of six modules about driving in different conditions:
• in town
• in all weathers
• on rural roads
• at night
• on dual carriageways
• on motorways
