1st time passer
Learning to drive can be an empowering and wonderful experience. It can also be bloody terrifying, and almost certainly will require a fair bit of money. Picking which instructor is going to get you through it is one of the biggest decisions you´re ever going to make.
So after many e-mails to many companies and about half s dozen phone calls to a shortlist of people, I decided to throw my lot in with Ian. This proved to be a good move. He was calm, confident and capable; even when I was doing something very very stupid and? or dangerous.
I started learning to drive about fifteen years later than most people start and this brain of mine isn´t quite as sharp as my seventeen year old self. Nether the less; Ian managed to find ways to get the required information into my stubborn mind and make it stick.
And now after four months I have passed, first time, with only four faults and no one died in the process!
Learning to drive is an investment, not only in time and money but also an investment in the person teaching you. You need to be able to trust them to keep you safe when you do something daft ( you WILL do something daft, and it´s OK). and also be able to make you understand why the thing you did was daft in the first place. With Ian you have invested wisely.
Cheers Ian. It´s been emotional.
