Despite not knowing till the last minute whether I was going to make it, Florence went on and nailed her first test with just the 1 df! A fantastic result for another brilliant pupil. Look forward to seeing the Fiat on the road soon πŸ‘‹
All the best and stay safe πŸš™πŸš™

After a long wait the day finally arrived and it was a great result for Oakley in Leighton Buzzard yesterday. Another well deserved first time pass. Not too shabby especially considering he wasn't able to drive for the last six weeks while recovering from a shoulder operation.
All the best and st...

Another good day yesterday with Adam nailing his test in Leighton Buzzard. That's another first time pass, and another great pupil doing it in his own car. And I wouldn't even dream of making any comment about the Australian connection πŸ˜‰. All the b...

A big shout out to the brilliant Jazz who today nailed her test in Watford. And at the first attempt so another brilliant result which is well deserved. I wonder who will have the bragging rights now, you or Myers. All the best and stay safe 🏎️ 🏎️

After a long wait for test day to come around it was certainly worth the wait. It was a great result for the brilliant Esme yesterday, passing her test in Leighton Buzzard with no problems, despite the usual nerves. Hopefully that means no more bus to school!
All the best and stay safe πŸ›΅ πŸ›΅

A beautiful sunny day yesterday in Leighton Buzzard and it turned out to be a great day for a test. Gemma nailed her first test with just the 2 df's, but then again with the Kiwi connection I shouldn't expect anything less.
The only problem now is that you've set the bar high for Aimee but I'm s...

Second test of the week and another pass. This time it was Tamsin who was successful in Leighton Buzzard with 0 df's! And just like her sister she nailed it at the first attempt but of course I couldn't possibly decide who might be the better driver. πŸ€”
But I can say she was another pupil who wa...

Another visit to Watford yesterday. This time Max was the successful pupil who walked away with a new license after another excellent drive. Max was another brilliant pupil who was a pleasure to teach and I'm sure he's going to enjoy those occasional drives to the office. And of course there's al...

This week it was James's turn to showcase his skills. Watford was the centre of choice where on Wednesday he walked away with a certificate and a new driving licence to match.
Another fantastic pupil who was a pleasure to help. As well as the odd talk about rugby πŸ‰
All the best and stay safe ...

Fred is not only a brilliant teacher but also creates a calm and friendly environment that inspires confidence and allows you to make mistakes and learn form them whilst staying safe and assured. He doesn't over complicate the lessons so I never felt overwhelmed and he has a very good sense of humour which may not seem essential, but trust me it helps! The pandemic resulted in many cancelled tests for me, but Fred was helpful and supportive throughout and when I eventually got a test I passed first time!

Fred is such an amazing teacher. I really enjoyed my driving experience, he made learning to drive as easy as possible and I felt so relaxed in all my lessons. With his help I passed first time. I would defiantly recommend!
