Karen is absolutely fantastic at her job and a delight to work with. She explained comprehensively how to drive in a way my daughter could receive, by doing the driving and learning as Karen directed her through many varied learning environments and opportunities. Karen also clearly communicated the key issues which I could help my daughter work on outside of the lessons. Karen gave my daughter the necessary skills and confidence to pass the drivers licence test first time. More importantly, Karen successfully communicated the safety checks required to keep my daughter and others safe on the road. Karen is one of those rare people whose service ethic is to give 100 percent every time. She always responded to any questions outside of the lesson that I had as a parent instructor in a detailed and generous manner. Karen is the best value for money and I would recommend her every time.
