Thanks to the great instructor that is Donna Colwell i managed to pass my practical driving test first attempt today.
I had never driven a car before I started my lessons and to this day have only done 36 hours driving, and that has all been with my instructor. She taught me everything I needed to know about driving and how to pass my test successfully.
Although she has only been teaching students how to drive for a short amount of time I can truly say that she is one of the best driving instructors around my local area and would advise her to anyone who is thinking about learning to drive.
Hi everyone my name is kayleigh. I passed my test on the 3rd of August thanks to Donna Colwell and Bubbles the car 🙂
I had a different driving instructor first who I drove with for over a year. I did my first test with my old driving instructor and failed I was getting sworn and shouted at. Coz I suffer really badly with anxiety.i changed driving instructors and found Donna I’m so glad I did and wish I started with Donna from the start. My first lesson with Donna I was so scared but because of she was so calm and relaxed, it made me feel at ease. I had 2 hour she with Donna and over all we had 5 lesson in that time Donna taught me things I didn’t even know. And now I have passed my test thanks to Donna such an amazing driving instructor she made all my fears go away. Now I can take my little boys out for the day. Good luck to anyone in the future that goes with yes drive thank you so much again .from Kayleigh 🙂
