After a discussion with Dave, we decided instead of waiting till Feb, we worked on still booking 30hrs of driving (that worked best for me) and booked my test for 20th Feb during the half term break and worked towards that date. I’d done my theory before (which ran out years ago, so I had to do it again) I’d never had a test date booked, or felt test ready before, so that was a huge motivator. My biggest nightmare has always been roundabouts, so as my lessons were focused on what I wanted to do, every lesson involved a roundabout of some description. I was a person if my husband took me out in our car and it involved a roundabout, I would refuse that route, or I would make him drive! Not only did Dave get me using roundabouts with confidence, I feel like around every corner on my test was a roundabout which didn’t faze me at all. I had gone from hating roundabouts to perfecting them and all this helped me pass my test first time.
I thought I’d never get to pass a driving test and I thought I’d never be able to get round a roundabout without guidance and support. I didn’t even need the full 30hrs driving, because Dave was definitely the right instructor for me and I have no hesitation recommending him to anyone wanting to learn to drive, especially if like me, you have tried others and given up hope. I now have my independence to go where I want and there’s no longer a car sitting doing nothing all week in my drive. 👍
