Janet is the BEST driving instructor out there!  Janet has been my instructor since the beginning of my driving journey and helped me to gain confidence in what can be a daunting process.  She has ALWAYS been so approachable, so supportive and has always made me feel so secure whilst driving.  She has never berated me if I made a silly mistake, never been an intimidating person to ask questions to and has never been impatient or angry if I was struggling with a certain aspect.  Aside from driving, she is such an amazing individual who you can easily have a laugh with and you can honestly connect with her.  Without the confidence she has given me, I honestly think I would not be as great as a driver as I am now.  There is no better driving instructor !!!



Janet was by far the best driving instructor I have had; she is patient, and very appreciative and understanding of the learning process and what it is like to learn something new.  She took the fear out of driving and helped me to be confident not only for the test, but for driving after passing.  Janet has a personality that puts you at ease quickly, and she makes driving fun.  I found her lessons flexible and amazing value.  Thank you for everything, Janet!

Janet was so calm and patient when teaching me how to drive, making it fun and enjoyable when I found driving so scary.  I was so hesitant and nervous but she’s given me the confidence to be able to drive and showed me skills I will use for life.  Janet is patient, flexible with lessons, and a calm approach.  Brilliant first time pass rate.


Janet is so lovely.

I had a couple bad experiences with past instructors, but she gave me the skills, confidence and self belief to pass my test first time! I highly recommend.


I tried a couple of instructors before Janet who was by far the best, she builds your confidence up fast and makes you fee completely at ease in the car. She is very patient , calm and overall a great teacher who I would highly recommend.
