Deborah driving lesson area

Samson with Driving test pass certificateSamson: ”I just passed my test first time today and I cannot give Deborah enough praise. She was honestly the best instructor I could have chosen and all the reviews are spot on. Deborah always gave great lessons and feedback. She makes you feel comfortable, listens to your needs, doesn't put you under any pressure at all and always ensures you learn at a pace which suits you. After every lesson I knew what to improve on and what I was doing right, I felt my confidence grow. Her lessons always indicated how ready I was for the test, and when she said I was ready, she was 100% correct. I passed with a few minors in Bromley and it was the best drive I had ever done, purely because I put all of Deborah's advice into practise. If you want to learn how to drive then look no further than Deborah, she will turn you into a safe and competent driver right in front of your very eyes. You'll be surprised at how much you'll grow with her. I'll gladly recommend Deborah to anyone, you will not be disappointed. Once again, all the thanks to Deborah. ”

Georgia: ”Deborah was an amazing teacher, she was patient, warm and always had a very calming nature about her. I passed my test first time with her help and only got 3 minor faults.

Hammed: ”I did really good in my practical driving test because of Debbie. I was given only one driving fault during my driving test. She was really patient through all my learnings since I was very inexperienced but because of her constant emotional support, I was able to push through and ace my practical test. I think she is very professional and always wants the best for her students. If you want the best results in your test then I suggest you go to her. Best instructor in the world. ”

After changing my driving instructor so many times, Deborah made the transition so easy and i didnt feel like I was back tracking, despite having to get used to a new car.

Deborah not only gave me the guidance to reach test standard, she has shown me how to be a safe driver forever. ”

I would (and have) happily recommend to anyone looking to learn to drive - she is a great instructor! Thanks again Deborah ”

Sarah: ” Deborah's teaching has not only enabled me to pass my car practical test first time but she has taught me how to be a safe and eco friendly driver for life. She never lost her patience with me when I struggled to learn some aspects. Instead she explained things in nice clear and simple terms for me to understand and made me practice things till I was completely comfortable and confident to sit my practical test. I fully recommend Deborah to anyone who is looking for a driving instructor; whether you're learning from scratch (like I was) or looking for a change of instructor. I have even already recommended my Uncle to Deborah, and he is currently enjoying his driving lessons with her! Thank you very much Deborah! ”

Sherelle: ” Deborah is a great driving instructor, she takes the time to listen to her pupils and works on the areas they are not comfortable with until they are. She's patient, honest yet firm and teaches safe driving skills for life, making for confident and safe road users. I had previously taken lessons with a different instructor but they were not right for me. When you find an instructor that's the right fit for you, you'll know and Deborah was right for me. I passed my test first time with 2 minors and it was down to an amazing instructor. She has great faith in her pupils and gives accurate estimates as to when you'll be ready to take your test, she knew I was ready for my test before I did. My first drive after passing my test was a 100 mile journey to pick up my new car Deborah gave me some advice and left me buzzing with confidence on my drive home. Since passing my test I have and will continue to recommend Deborah to anyone else taking driving lessons. ”

Susan: ” Deborah is a fantastic instructor, I can't thank her enough for her help. During the period I was learning, I went through a devastating emotional challenge but with her listening ears I was able to pull through. I was always looking forward to my driving lessons! Thank you so much Deborah for listening as well as the advise but most of all thank you for the skills you displayed that helped me pass my practical test. ”

Tricia: ”I honestly can't thank Deborah enough, it's as a result of her incredible tutoring skills that I passed my driving test yesterday with 2 minors. Deborah is very personable and I immediately felt comfortable with her. She's very encouraging whilst always being honest which I definitely think created a high level of trust. I trusted her advice and always found she gave a realistic indication of my progress. Her ability to explain things and answer any questions clearly immediately puts you in a position where you never hesitate to ask her anything. I highly recommend taking lessons with Deborah, she really is pretty awesome!! Thanks Deborah xxx ”
