Quotes

Karen (Behind The Wheel) was recommended to me as a "Keys to Drive" (the government's "Young Driver initiative" free lesson) instructor, as all driving schools are not accredited for this. My son's first lesson was his "Keys to Drive" lesson, so I was required to be a passenger. Karen's professionalism showed from the very first minute. She spoke clearly and confidently and put my son at ease from the outset. Our lesson concluded with a "no strings attached" approach - no hard sell for her driving school or for further lessons. My son had had other lessons with a different driving school and was unhappy. He gave Karen the thumbs up straight away. We had a further 2 lessons with Karen (Behind the Wheel) in her car, then 3 more in our car in the weeks leading up to his driving test. A "warm up" drive with Karen prior to the test put Nick at ease - Karen had prepared by driving some of the local streets to where he might be taken for familiarity. He passed on his first attempt. Thank you Karen for your professional approach, flexibility and teaching skills. I will be calling you again when my daughter is old enough!
