"When I first started learning to drive, I was very nervous. It wasn’t something I had ever wanted to do but, when I accepted a place as a trainee educational psychologist, it became clear that driving would be essential for my future career. I had no idea that learning to drive would be such fun and this is all thanks to Helen’s unique and quirky style of teaching. I knew that trying to fit driving lessons in around university was going to be difficult, but it never felt like hard work because I enjoyed them so much. Even at the end of an exhausting week, Helen always kept me smiling and made sure I didn’t spend too much time worrying about everything. Helen is a fantastic teacher, and friend, who has helped me to overcome so many issues with my confidence, and I am extremely grateful to have been able to learn from her. I would happily recommend her to anyone because I know that she has a wonderful ability to quickly attune to your individual learning needs, no matter how complex these may be. Helen won’t just teach you to pass your test, she will teach you how to be a good, safe and independent driver, and don’t be surprised if she knows what you’re thinking before you do! Thank you Helen for having faith in me and please keep in touch. I am really going to miss our lessons, but I guess that’s what pass plus is for. Leanne xxx"


I have been told I am calm, patient and make learning to drive fun.

If you are especially nervous about the thought of sitting in the driving seat for the first time, then I am the instructor for you! I currently use coaching techniques that work really well in helping you to achieve your goal of being a safe, competent driver. Perhaps you already have a driving license, but haven't driven for a few years and are anxious about getting back on the road? I can help you to regain your confidence, and your independence...

I am happy to help with all  aspects of driver training so, whatever your needs, don't delay, call me today! Txt ur details to me 'n I will get back to within 24 hours!

For more information on how I can help you please contact me in the first instance. If you’re a past, present or potential future student you can also follow me on Twitter and Facebook. Safe Driving!

Another  PURPLE pass....

 "I just wanna say a massive thank you to Helen for getting me through this and being an amazing instructor. When I first started learning my confidence was there but a few lessons with her gave me that confidence. I can't say thank you enough to Helen for taking her time with me and making me feel like I can do it. With her I felt like she was a crazy auntie or a best friend and not an instructor and I think that's key if your learning. So I just wanna say thank you once again I couldn't have done it with out you. :) Matthew smees 23/10/2014"
