About Donna

Originally from Lewes, Donna moved away to support her husband whilst he was serving in the forces. After living in Oxfordshire and Germany, Donna and her family have been settled in Newhaven since 2007.

Donna has always enjoyed driving, especially driving on the continent,  after spending 8 years in Germany. Her ambition has been to combine her experience within children’s education and her enthusiasm for driving.

She relishes the challenge of new nervous drivers of all ages and enjoys bringing the best out of them. This is due to previous experience of working with special educational needs, including Dyslexia, Asperger and ADHD. Through her personable instructional manner, she is keen to help students pass first time and become the best driver they can be.

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 🙂
