The best instructor

Kerry was very patient and supportive from the beginning. She was happy to go through anything as many times as I needed until I built my confidence. Kerry is very easy to talk to and reassured me throughout my lessons. She is very friendly which made me feel very comfortable in all my lessons. Would recommend Kerry to everyone.

Kerry supported me from my first ever driving lesson to passing my test. She was extremely patient and helped me to build up my confidence and deal with my driving nerves. She talked through any mistakes calmly, to allow me to develop my skills and become a better and safer driver. Kerry was also able to schedule my lessons around my university course. She was always friendly and made me feel comfortable during lessons. She is an excellent instructor, so glad I learnt to drive with her!

The best ever

Kerry has been the best instructor I could have asked for! Gives calm, clear instructions and always happy to go over something until you get it right. As a nervous driver Kerry was reassuring and supportive, and made me believe in myself. I couldn't have passed 1st time without her! Would recommend to anyone!
