Samantha Hallam Passed first time after 18 year break ! After failing my driving test 3 times when I was 17 years old due to nerves & lack of confidence, I decided to quit. I found learning to drive highly stressful & never thought I could achieve a pass. After 18 years had passed I was 35 years old. I had a Husband & 3 Children and in a situation that made life difficult for myself & my family through not being able to drive. I decided to face my fears of driving & start again.
I found Tim Clarke online & gave him a call & quickly arranged a lesson. I immediately felt at ease with Tim. Tim has a lovely calm way to coach & guide you through lessons. Due to gaining confidence I was able to make progress. On the lead up to my test Tim helped me develop a positive mindset & visualise passing my test. Having positive thoughts meant my nerves didn't control me. I thought, it's just a test & if I don't pass then I just need to try again. On the day of my test I told myself I can do this over & over again. Finally passing my test was such a fantastic feeling! If you are nervous, lack confidence or suffer from driving anxiety don't give up you can do it!
I passed on 30th August 2018 with just 2 minors. If I can do it so can You! Tim - thanks a million! All the best, Samantha Hallam
Ceri Braithwaite 1st Time Pass Hi Tim, Just wanted to say a big thank you for teaching me how to drive. A big step that I was actually quite nervous about, became a really fun and comfortable experience and I enjoyed every minute of it. Even though we had a planned tick sheet to go through, every lesson still felt personal to me. The best bit was that I had so much trust in your teaching I was more confident in taking a leap in just going for it and to try new things- especially In my first few lessons. A big thankyou, couldn't have done it without you! Shall miss it! Ceri xx
Sonya Packer Passed First Time I cannot recommend Tim highly enough as a driving instructor. I find accepting constructive criticism difficult and knew that finding the right instructor for me was likely to be difficult. I struck gold first time with Tim. He has an open relaxed approach which instantly made me feel comfortable with him. He explained clearly anything that I needed to work on and made driving after a break of over 12 years an absolute pleasure. His confidence in my abilities and reassurances when I needed them, made passing my test 1st time a breeze despite the obvious nerves that I had. Tim thank you for the time that you invested in me teaching me how to drive. I will always be grateful to you.
Ollie Faber First Time Pass After a long period of learning with a few instructors and a long gap, I decided to try a 15 hour course with Tim. Straight away I felt at ease, his methods gave me an understanding of everything I needed to know. Definitely recommend this guy !!
