Couldnt have done it without her!
How do I start. I never imagined in my life I would be able to drive because of my nerves. Cathy made it possible for me. Over time she built up my confidence and never lost faith that I could do it. I still cant believe I have passed my test first time. Cathy has become a friend and has turned my dread of driving into something I look forward to. Her patience, clear and friendly approach to teaching could calm even the most nervous, reluctant person, I am proof of that.
Thank you Cathy; your a star!

Amazing supportive teacher!
Cathy helped me learn to drive and I can't thank her enough for being the most supportive and encouraging teacher. Cathy helped me overcome my nerves and become confident. Going from manual to automatic was the best decision I could have made and I know i was really lucky to have been able to have my lessons with her!

☺️☺️ thank you Cathy!

I came to Cathy when I had been learning for about a year. I lacked confidence and was quite a nervous driver by nature. When I met Cathy all of my fears were put aside. She was so lovely and friendly and I was put immediately at ease! Cathy kept me going even when I lost confidence in my abilities and Cathy was incredibly patient and encouraging! Cathy was also very helpful with me as I was trying to balance being a mum, going to university and driving. Once Cathy felt confident with me She allowed me to bring my daughter to the lessons which was a huge relief as I had trouble finding Child care. I passed first time thanks to Cathy's help and support! Cathy is a brilliant teacher and thanks to her I now have a lot more independence!! :D

No.1 Driving Instructor, 1st time pass!
I can't recommend Cathy highly enough!
I was very nervous about learning to drive but after the first lesson I knew I had nothing to worry about while under her experienced and friendly tuition.
Cathy has excellent communication, if you did something good she'll always let you know and it really boosted my confidence. If you make a mistake she always remains calm and doesn't get angry. Instead she'll talk you through the situation, help you understand your fault and then build towards improvement in a way that didn't turn me into a hesitant driver.
I felt really comfortable with her, she was always on time for lessons, her car is spotlessly clean and lovely to drive.
Not to mention she's a good laugh and great company!

Thanks for helping me pass 1st time Cathy! xx

Probably one of the best in the region
Cathy was the second driving instructor that I have come across after extensive searching on the internet for background information and reviews.
Firstly - Cathy is very capable of giving constructive feedbacks during lessons. I think when looking for an instructor (or any "teacher") this ability is the key. I find the feedbacks from Cathy to be accurate but they do not demolish my confidence.
Secondly - Cathy is very organised and punctual. She always make good communication about lessons that occur the next day, and she always arrive in good time for the lesson to start. If she was going to be late, she will let you know in good time before the lesson. One time she was only late for 2 minutes and she still gave me a text well before! She also doesn't waste your lesson time by talking on and on! If lessons ended early due to good traffic, she always added the time onto the next lesson scheduled.
Last but not least, the car is well maintained and comfortable to drive.
Thanks Cathy!
