Testimonials from some of my past pupils

Maria Maria
Passing my driving test 1st Time
After not learning to drive the moment I could, and then leaving it for all of my 20s, I’d got quite anxious about eventually learning. After a friend recommended Kel, I reached out to her, and despite things being busy and us initially missing each others calls, she persevered and got me booked in around my busy work schedule, which was such a relief. Kel put me at ease straight away. She is incredibly approachable and friendly. Throughout my lessons she of course gave feedback on what I needed to work on and improve, but also encouraged me when I did something better or well. Kel has helped me build my confidence in being on the road, when at first, I didn’t think I’d ever get there! I’m over the moon I passed my test first time. I felt surprisingly calm on the day- all thanks to Kel’s teaching, keeping me level-headed and being so positive in the build up. I’m truly going to miss my lessons with her!

Kel has been so helpful throughout my entire learning journey. She was always so patient and was extremely understanding if we ever had to shift our lessons around due to my work. Aside from the lessons if I ever had any questions at all Kel was always happy to help me outside of my lessons. The LDC workbook was good as I could always keep track of my progress. I would recommend Kel to others as I believe she’s got very good techniques on helping her students with all challenges.

Kelly made me feel in safe hands
Kelly has been a patient and supportive instructor from the very beginning. She has accommodated my difficult work schedule, which has often meant postponing and changing lesson times. I had never driven before starting lessons with Kelly, but she always made me feel in safe hands. After having to take a break from lessons due to work I lost a lot of confidence and wasn’t sure I was ready for the test, but with Kelly’s dedication and perseverance I was able to pass first time. The LDC learning book was also a massive help as I was able to read it in the gap from my lessons and it meant I kept the information fresh in my mind. Kelly was always quick to respond to messages and often sent me video links in between lessons for subjects I needed to focus on before my next lesson. I don’t think I’d have been able to do it without her, it really felt as though we were a team! I honestly cannot recommend Kelly enough!

Learning to drive with Kelly has been such a fun and rewarding experience. I am so glad I got to learn with her and could not recommend her highly enough! Kelly is a wonderful driving instructor, very calm, patient and encouraging, and always provides clear guidance during lessons and constructive feedback after, so that you have a real target and focus to work towards each time. She explains things really well and is super approachable and personable too. I felt I had a great deal of support in Kelly throughout the process and that I was always able to ask questions; which really helped me make sense of things, especially at the beginning. Kelly truly cares about her students and takes the time to go through things in detail and adjust lessons to your pace. She has helped me to build my confidence each week with her informative and reassuring teaching style. I’m very grateful and happy to say that, with her kind support and guidance, I’ve been able to pass my driving test. Thank you Kelly!

Lessons with Kelly were fun and informative. She was always kind, and gave feedback and help in a constructive way. It was easy to contact her regarding lesson times and changes, and she was very flexible with our lessons. After passing my test first time, I cannot thank her enough for her teaching and support.

I passed with Kel
Kelly is patient and communicative and always has the right balance between allowing you to make mistakes so you become self-reliant rather than waiting for instructions and intervening when needed.  • Kelly is very observant which is great as it stops you picking up bad habits.  • One of Kelly’s super powers is remembering every little detail that happened on a drive without taking notes, this is so helpful after the drive when you reflect on good points and bad points.  • Kelly is organised with planning lessons, always on time to lessons and very communicative outside of lessons too, giving you points to focus on and links to videos to help with areas of focus.  Honestly, don’t think twice. I had a few driving instructors before someone recommended Kelly. I don’t take for granted what a safe pair of hands she has been for me, it was a great recommendation. Kelly is the right person to trust with your learning to drive journey!

I had never been behind the wheel before my first lesson with Kelly. I have just passed and across my entire learning experience, Kel was always incredibly calm, supportive and helpful when correcting my errors. I would highly recommend her

Catlin Catlin
Passing My Driving Test
Learning to drive with Kelly has been an amazing experience. She’s an easy going, bubbly person who made me feel comfortable in the car from my very first lesson. Kelly was very informative and would always provide me with constructive feedback at the end of every lesson without being discouraging. Not only is she experienced with driving and her job, she’s also a peoples person and truly wants the best for her students. After failing my first test, I felt very deflated and nervous to get back on the road but Kelly got me thinking straight again, she would express her confidence in my skills and provided me with the positive self talk I was struggling to give myself. She wouldn’t let me quit and she wouldn’t let me go into another test without being confident in myself. I went for my second test and left the test centre with my license and a friend. Thank you Kelly!

Kel is a great driving instructor, I can't recommend her highly enough - and not only because I passed my test on my first attempt! She is friendly, calm and reassuring, never loses her cool and gives clear instructions and explanations. Kel always communicated quickly and professionally to help me book lessons, and was flexible if I needed to move lessons due to being ill. I particularly appreciated, in the beginning, when I struggled to focus for longer lessons, that Kel would suggest ending the lesson a bit early when I was no longer learning properly, and offering to tack that extra half an hour onto a different lesson. This flexibility shows how much she cares about her students, and as she told me before my test, "I wouldn't advise you to take your test of I didn't think you were ready." She also helped me book my test as the DVLA website was overloaded and I couldn't get on it. Kel really puts her students' needs first!

I cannot thank Kel enough as there is no way I could have stuck with learning to drive without her. From the offset she was incredibly supportive and patient. Kel is the perfect instructor that I absolutely needed in order to pass, and to pass first time. When I started, I reckon I was potentially the most nervous learner she may have had so for anyone out there that’s nervous, get into it… The LDC workbook was also a massive help too. Thank you so much Kel, truly. This is a game changer for me and my family. I’m looking forward to continuing my journey with you for motorway pass plus, Kel honestly is such a legend

I passed my driving test
Kelly is amazing. She was my 4th instructor and my only positive experience. After 2 hrs in my car I no longer hated being on the roads. She helped polish up my driving and she prepared me for my driving test. Cannot recommend enough. She is very professional, organised and puts you at ease when behind the wheel.

Kel is an extremely supportive and patient driving instructor. She helped me become confident on the roads with her kind, reassuring manner. She was very flexible with lesson dates and times and understood how hard it is to fit in lessons around studying and working. I couldn’t have learnt with a better driving instructor. I would recommend her teaching to any beginner driver.

Passing My Driving Test
I started learning to drive with Kel during the pandemic and it was really great to have such a patient and calm instructor helping me to get onto the roads. It being during multiple lockdowns etc, it meant our lessons could have large breaks in between them but as Kel had always reminded me of the rules of the road, tips for parking etc, I felt confident when I got back into the car after a long stint. She always had answers for my questions and clarified anything I might not understand! Kel was brilliant and also just a super lovely person! I’ll really miss having her next to me in the front seat!

First Time Pass
Kelly is a phenomenal teacher. She is patient, kind and makes driving an enjoyable experience. She will help you practice any areas of driving you are unsure about. She is calm, encouraging and never makes you feel bad for making a mistake. She genuinely cares about you passing and will take the time to help you pass your test with every confidence in your new life skill. I honestly could not recommend Kelly high enough.

Laurent Laurent
Passing My Driving Test
I just passed my practical driving test and l have to say without Kel’s help l would have struggled with the roads of Mitcham. Thanks to Kel l felt confident on my test day. Not only did she make sure I had the opportunity to drive on as many different possible test roads, but she was amazing to learn with and taught me skills that l will keep for life. I can’t thank Kel enough for helping me getting my driving licence and also giving me the confidence to drive alone. I would highly recommend Kel.

Kelly has been an amazing teacher. The lessons were well planned and enjoyable, she gave great feedback and was happy to answer my many questions. She was always calm and reassuring with clear explanations of how to carry out manoeuvres, enabling me to drive with confidence. With Kelly’s help and encouragement I felt well prepared for my test and was able to pass first time - I couldn’t have done it without her!

Imogen Imogen
First Time Pass
Kelly has been the best driving instructor I could have asked for. Whenever I struggled with a manoeuvre, she would always make it very clear as to how I could improve; her explanations were simple and easy to understand every time. In the lead up to my test, she helped me feel confident in myself and my driving which was something I needed during that time. With her amazing teaching I was able to pass my practical first time.

Second Time Pass
I’m so glad that Kel took me on as a student! After moving back to London during the first lockdown and abruptly interrupting my lessons I was desperate to get back on the road and get this license. I was so fortunate to have found Kel; she helped me by starting from scratch with me. Throughout all of the lessons she was always calm, patient and reassuring. She made sure I was completely comfortable and at ease in each lessons while being patient. She constantly encouraged me in every way she could, (even after failing the first test) until I passed. In very thankful and grateful for the hard work she put into teaching me.

Passing My Driving Test
I couldn't have asked for a better teacher than Kelly. Learning to drive when nearly 30 is never easy but Kelly knew when to speed things up and when to slow things down in my lessons. Kelly was always flexible with my lessons and made the test itself as stress free as it could possibly get. I couldn't recommend Kelly more.

I had to move back home due to covid where I contacted Kelly to see if she could help me so that I could carry on learning to drive and gain my licence. I found Kelly so easy to understand, learn from and she was very helpful even during these times. I managed to Passed my test just before second lockdown which I am very pleased about. I was very happy with Kelly and I would definitely recommend her.

Refresher Lessons
I really enjoyed my lessons with Kelly. The best thing was that she really encouraged me to be confident and to feel in control of taking decisions whilst on the road. I felt like she really cared about my progress. Kelly also helped me think about what car to buy and helped me with a lot of the basics like filling the petrol for the first time. I really enjoyed my lessons with Kelly.

Passed 1st time
I’m so grateful to Kelly for all her work as an instructor. Throughout the process she’s been patient, clear and direct in her lessons. Previous instructors I’ve had, while helpful, lacked the same personable approach and constructive support that Kelly has displayed. Her feedback would continue outside of the paid lesson time, meaning you’d always be learning. I would certainly recommend anybody looking for a reliable and safe instructor to contact her. With her guidance, I was able to pass my driving test on the 1st time and I honestly cannot recommend her enough.

Jessica Keeble

Kelly is always calm and pleasant to drive with, she gives clear instructions and brilliant technical guidance. She really knows her stuff and really cares about her students progress. I would definitely recommend her to a friend

I Passed 1st time
Kelly was such a fantastic instructor. Our lessons were enjoyable and she made me feel so relaxed whilst driving. Her good teaching enabled me to pass my driving test first time with only two minors. I highly recommend Kelly as she is a kind and patient teacher and has helped me become the confident driver I am today!

Finally Passing My Driving Test
learning to drive with Kelly has been a dream. I’ve had previous instructors but I can honestly say Kelly has been the most calm, helpful, patient and personable. She’s always able to answer my questions and provide me with constructive feedback. I would happily recommend her to others (and already have). I’m glad to say that with her help I’ve finally been able to pass my driving test!

I am very grateful to Kelly for helping me pass my practical driving test. Kelly was very supportive and encouraging, and made me feel really comfortable at the wheel. I had failed the test 3 times due to nerves before I met Kelly and she had an immediate impact on my driving. She just let me drive a lot and was very good at timing her feedback so I could just concentrate on the road and what was ahead of me instead of constantly thinking about what I was doing wrong. I highly recommend Kelly to anyone who's looking to pass their driving test, particularly to those struggling with nerves.

Passing My Driving Test
I have really enjoyed taking my driving lessons with Kelly. The lessons were carefully planned and focused around improving areas that initially I didn't feel so confident in. We also built on other areas previously covered, giving me plenty of time to feel confident and fully prepared for my driving test. Kelly is easily approachable and fantastic at explaining areas which I had been unsure about clearly and easily, making driving a safe and enjoyable experience. I felt I had great support and guidance from Kelly through out my learning which made the lead up to my test less daunting. I am so happy to have passed and I can not recommend enough how great an instructor Kelly is and how she has helped me achieve this.

Learning to drive
After looking online to find driving instructors I came across Kelly and I am so glad I did. She is an amazing driving instructor. She is very patient and has no problems in explaining things over and over again. Her teaching style is very unique and she is also very encouraging. I just started my lessons and I already feel very confident and it has been absolutely worth it!

Rachel Wheeler
Driving Lessons
I approached Kelly at the age of 37 as finally decided it was time to bite the bullet and start driving lessons. Anxiety and a lack of confidence had help me back until I met a Kelly. Kelly is a friendly, patient, diligent driving instructor who is very calm and supportive. A few months on and I am enjoying driving and hope to be test ready soon. Thanks Kelly for all your guidance and support as without you I don’t think I would have had the confidence to keep going.

Amber Roberts
Driving Lessons
Kelly has been absolutely fantastic with the driving lessons, she’s patient, calm and to the point. When I ask her for help or advice or different ways of approaching the lesson she’s always on the ball. I had 3 lessons 8 years ago and honestly if I’d of had Kelly then I’d be driving now! She’s quick on her feet and calls me out when I do something wrong- but she doesn’t make you feel bad for mistakes as guess what? You’re a learner and it’s ok to make mistakes. Using the LDC book and online materials have been a life saver! When I log into the online platform I can remind myself of everything we learnt in the lesson, and work my way through the theory tests! I highly recommend LDC and Kelly for anyone who wants that special touch and to push you beyond your limits to succeed!
