Gareth came over from Caernarfon to do some standards check training with Charlotte. "I decided to do some CPD training to polish up on my skills and techniques with the wonderful Charlotte. A thoroughly enjoyable session, she really comes highly recommended"

Gary did part 3 remedial training with Charlotte. 'I initially contacted Charlotte around 6 months ago after feeling my training wasn’t getting the best out of me as an instructor and felt a different approach was needed. Charlotte has taught me so much in the last 6 months and has made me become a very client centred instructor. Her knowledge and passion for driver training hit me straight away, then to add to that her support and patience made me leave each session with a renewed knowledge of what was expected from me. Immediately my own students would compliment me on how they felt their own training was going and said how positive they felt their lessons were now. I can’t thank Charlotte enough for getting me through my part 3 first time with her help. She was there to support me the whole way and on the day of my test she was also there to support me too. I feel now that I’m a driver trainer and it’s shown in my results at driving tests, my students are passing with just a few driver faults due to how my training style has changed into a supportive and proactive way of teaching. I would highly recommended Charlotte to anyone who is thinking about becoming a driver trainer. The support you will get will be second to none and you won’t regret working with Charlotte'

Caitlin learnt to drive with Charlotte. 'A year after I had stopped learning to drive I was really anxious about starting again. I remember the first time I spoke with Charlotte, and how understanding she was about my anxiety and worries about driving again, and we discussed what approach would be best to take. Charlotte is patient, kind, and wants to make you become the best driver you can be. She has a warm, positive energy which created a friendly atmosphere in the car, and I found keeping a driving log very helpful! I would recommend Charlotte to anyone wanting to drive, and especially those with anxiety. I will miss our lessons very much! Thank you Charlotte'

Anne-Marie did all of her training with Charlottes Driver Training and passed all of her driving instructor exams on her first attempt, in less than a year. 
'I am so happy to have passed my part 3 with charlotte. Charlotte was amazing from start to finish and helped me so much, she work's so hard and puts so much time in. Charlotte is a funny, loving and caring person, I would recommend her to everyone'

Andy passed his part 2 test on his first attempt with a clean sheet, so no driving faults at all. We have just completed 40 hours part 3 training and now Andy will be going on a trainee licence. Here is to the next stage Andy!

Michael did part 3 rescue training with Charlotte. 'My ADI training took almost two years due to the pandemic and the clock was ticking while the nerves were in tatters. Charlotte's calmness is catching and her knowledge of teaching is fantastic. Lessons are a hugely positive enviroment where you're encouraged to reflect on what you're focusing on and develop your own strengths'

Rob passed all of his exams on his first attempt in less than a year.
'Having been a driving instructor around 15 years ago, I decided to return to this profession. Knowing what I know about the industry and what’s  involved in passing the part 3 especially - the ability to teach. I had a vey good understanding of exactly what type of trainer I needed and what was required. I started my journey around November last year and luckily found Charlotte who’s an Approved ORDIT Trainer, after speaking to her on the phone and another instructor trainer at the time, I knew Charlotte was the choice for me. She has been amazing, her professionalism, personality, knowledge has got me through this stressful journey I think, in an incredible short time, especially considering I had a month in Thailand and the months of waiting for tests (Parts 1,2,&3).
A huge thank you from me for all you help in achieve my goals!!'

Margaret did part 2 and 3 training with Charlotte.
'After a career working in an educational establishment for over 20 years, I had the opportunity to do something new and decided to follow my dream of becoming a driving instructor. I did my research and found Charlotte's (and other trainers) contact details via the DVSA website. From the very first telephone conversation with Charlotte she was professional, enthusiastic and knowledgeable and I knew she was the person to help me to achieve my goal.  
Initially Charlotte helped me brush up my own driving skills which enabled me to pass my Part 2 first time. We then moved on to 40 hours in-car training to prepare me to become an instructor with that all important client centred approach. Charlotte is patient, knowledgeable and willing to share all her expertise with you. I decided not to go down the Pink route and started instructing my own learners for free until I passed my Part 3 (this took much longer than I had hoped because of test delays caused by the COVID backlog), Charlotte still supported me every step of the way. Even now I have my own driving school, I know Charlotte is still available to me to brainstorm and offer advice and guidance. For anybody thinking they want to pursue a career as a driving instructor, I cannot recommend Charlotte more highly to support you to do this'

I would highly recommend'

Claire: 'I started training with Charlotte in May after a bad experience with lack of confidence and my anxiety standing in the way of a passing my driving test. Charlotte worked very hard to help me overcome struggles I was having with my driving, for example roundabouts. I was petrified of them to a point I would avoid them. Charlotte helped me overcome my fears and this has really improved my driving over all. Charlotte did everything she could do to help me and my fears in driving. I feel if it wasn’t for Charlotte I wouldn’t have ever passed my test. Not only have I passed my test but I have gained a special person who will always be my friend. Thanks for everything you have done for me, you have changed mine and my children’s lives. Thanks x x x x'

Ryan: 'I was so happy that I passed first time. Charlottes lessons were always enjoyable. Charlotte was very patient and understanding and adapted her teaching style to suit my learning. It seemed like she really cared and was interested in my progress of learning to drive. I would recommend Charlotte because she teaches you to become a good driver, not just to pass your test. Thanks, Ryan'

Tamzin: 'Charlotte is a brilliant driving instructor and I would 100% recommend her to anyone looking to start lessons. She helped me to overcome my nervous driving and fears about being on the road within a few months and was very calm and patient with me in any situation. She was also very understanding, it was like learning to drive with a friend rather than an instructor. She was also very professional, friendly and went out of her way to help me. Thank you for your time and all of your efforts, I passed confidently second time'

Learners who are currently training:

Christopher: Charlotte is the best driving instructor around and its always calm and well taught. My driving has improved so much, not only does she help with my driving she also has helped me with my confidence. I don’t feel like a learner with charlotte or as if she is a driving instructor, she is more of a friend. I highly recommend Charlotte as she is 1 in a million.

Kathryn: I honestly can't recommend Charlotte enough. After putting off lessons for many years due to being quite anxious to learn I can firmly say I made the right choice in choosing Charlotte as my instructor. After reading all of her credentials and seeing how passionate she was about teaching people to become skilled safe drivers I decided to message and was met with really a really helpful and friendly reply. Charlotte has been lovely in lessons and really puts me at ease she does her best to take her time and make sure you are getting the best outcomes of every lesson.
I feel incredibly safe learning with Charlotte knowing she truly cares about what she is doing so I can not recommend her highly enough!

Rachael: I've found that my attitude towards driving has improved because charlotte provides a calm and positive driving atmosphere. I never feel rushed or panicked.

Claire: Charlotte is a very good instructor I only had 3 lessons up to now and have learnt so much already. She doesn't just prepare you for the driving test she prepares you for life driving.
