The way to learn to drive

Personal Recommendations

Here are some recommendations I've received from my students:-

“Stephanie is the perfect instructor if you want to be a safe and confident driver in the long-term. She doesn’t just teach you the necessary basics to enable you to pass the test, but also goes out of her way to cater lessons to your particular needs and any weaknesses you might need to work on, all with endless patience and encouragement. Her years of experience mean she knows exactly what potential problems you might have and how she can help you to overcome them.

I always looked forward to my lessons, despite not being too enthusiastic about driving before I started learning. I never felt rushed or pressured, and I was amazed how quickly I improved week by week.

Beth, from Hitchin, aged 19. Passed test Autumn 2011

After numerous failed tests and several different instructors between 1997 and 2010, I was on the brink of giving up for good until I found Stephanie :

Stephanie, you made everything so easy to understand and I felt comfortable and relaxed throughout every lesson. It's no wonder I passed my test with you as my tutor!  Thank you so much!

I've recommended you to all my non-driving friends!

Sean, then aged 30, Welwyn Garden City. Passed test Summer 2010

After 4 failed driving instructors and 10 years of lessons, Stephanie made me feel comfortable and not rushed as I had been in the past! I also passed first time! The Facebook site is also a great place to catch up with people who are learning and have passed. It really is difficult to put in few words how great you were Stephanie.

Melanie, then aged 27, Stevenage. Passed test Autumn 2009

Thanks to Stephanie’s clear, honest and thorough instruction, I was able to pass my driving test first time, and have also gained the skills and knowledge essential for safe driving every day. I would strongly recommend Stephanie to anyone who wishes to learn to drive.

Rachel, then aged 19, Hitchin. Passed test Spring 2001

I would definitely recommend Stephanie as a Driving Instructor, if anybody feels they need a very pleasant, reliable & very professional person to get them through their driving test. At the ripe old age of 50 I decided that I must learn to drive, 6 months later I passed my test first time.

Patrick, then aged 50, Woolmer Green. Passed test Summer 2009

I would definitely recommend Stephanie as a Driving Instructor, as she is a good teacher, who gives clear and accurate instructions how to drive, very patient to our mistakes, pleasant to deal with, a punctual and reliable person with a good sense of humour, which helps a lot when you struggle to learn manoeuvres at the age of 51. 10 months later I passed my test first time.

Galina, Stevenage. Passed test Summer 2006

First class tailored tuition.

Liz, aged 30, Hitchin. Current pupil

I chose Stephanie after reviewing comments on her website and it turned out to be the best decision I made. All the comments mention how patient and reassuring she was but until you have had a lesson with her you wouldn’t understand how right they are.

My nerves always got the better of me during lessons and tests and by 30 years old I still didn’t have my licence and didn’t enjoy driving whatsoever.

Stephanie managed somehow to make me feel confident and relaxed whilst driving. I started to look forward to next lessons and even felt ready to take the practical test. I passed first time with Stephanie and think if she had been my instructor at the earlier stages I would have passed years ago.

Could not recommend you enough – Stephanie, you are fantastic!!!!!
