Experience with Lisa:- "I was nervouse and apprehensive due to losing my licence previously this also made me feel lots of pressure to pass again quickly. Lisa settled me in quickly and gave very clear instruction which helped calm my nerves and rebuild my confidence. Lisa told and taught me everything I needed to know quickly and concisely. A great instructor I would recommend." test passed 27th November 2012

Kieran Engelke, Morecambe, Age 27
Lisa not only gave me the knowledge needed to pass, but the confidence to know I would too. Since passing I have driven to Portsmouth, Cornwall, Swindon, Leeds, Glasgow, Ayr and many more places I would never have imagined driving to before I started my lessons with LIsa. I can't thank her enough!
Nicole Hunt, Morecambe

Well done to Nicole for passing her test first time before returning to University next week. Adapting to driving on the Left was the biggest challenge after starting driving while in Spain, (21st August 2012)

Driving Experience with Lisa?
"Was scared to learn to drive as I've heard bad things about some Driving Instructors but Lisa is so lovely, can have a laugh with her and is very patient and never Shouts! Would recommend to anyone! Also very reliable and passed first time when I didn't think I'd ever drive!" Passed 20th March 2012
Sharon Edwards, Lancaster, age 48. (Driving her own Automatic.)
Previous Driving Experience
"Tried learning in the past and even began this time with someone else, but Lisa was recommended by a friend who passed with her approx, 6 week before me."
Experience Learning with Lisa
"I have tried learning to drive before and given up, but Lisa was so understanding and patient, but also complementary and positive, that you just don't want to give up. I never thought I would ever pass my test and Lisa made that possible."
Alan Outram, from Morecambe. Age 45
Previous Driving Experience:- None
"Any initial fears or nerves I had about learning to drive quickly disappeared under Lisa's tutelage. With Lisa's firm approach to teaching and obvious experience I soon found I was looking forward to lessons and even enjoying them! She is able to detect any possible faults or weak points and focus on correcting those, building up a pupil's confidence along the way. I would not hesitate to recommend Lisa to any learner driver, young or old."Test Passed 8th February 2012

Driving Experience with Lisa

Ben Wainwright, Age 32 from Lancaster
Learning Experience with Lisa:- "Excellent. Lisa treated me like a beginner to see what skills I had or hadn't been taught and developed my skills from there. After failing four times in my younger days my confidence wasn't at a high level, but Lisa taught and encouraged me in a way that ensured that when I put in for my test I was confident I could pass. Practising on the roads where the test routes are proved invaluable as I knew the area and was prepared for whatever the route could throw at me. Her inclusion of the countryside drives and night driving (I mainly learnt during the day) gave me extra knowledge that I know I'll need, mock tests were excellent for finding my weaknessess so they could be worked on. Also, Lisa was encouraging me to book the test before I felt I was 100% ready. This proved she wasn't trying to drag it out for as many weeks as possible, but she knew when I was at test standard but wasn't confident enough in myself, and she must have been right as I passed first time with only one minor. However, I don't feel that I've been taught to pass a test, I feel like I've been taught how to drive, so now am full of confidence that I'm equipped to handle any scenario that may come up."
"I would wholeheartedly encourage everyone to do the Pass Plus. Motorway driving is totally different to anything I'd done before, but I've been shown how to handle it. The extra country driving, plus learning about different weather conditions and other towns and their traffic systems makes me feel like a very rounded driver."
"I'd wholeheartedly encourage anyone thinking of learning to learn with Lisa. I just wish she'd been teaching me when I was 17!
Test Passed 17th November 2011
Rachel Hodgson, Age 30 from Carnforth
Previous Driving Experience:-
"An intersting one with previous instructors: one said or shouted 'what have you done wrong?' 'why have you done it?' - not good attitude towards learner driver."
Driving Experience with Lisa
"Excellent! Couldn't wish for a better driving instructor. I felt so at ease and Lisa never got in a bad mood if I had done something wrong"
"I feel already I am a confident driver and I have only gained this with you! Cheers Lisa!!" test passed, 5th January 2012
Chloe Nash, Age 17, Morecambe
No previous driving experience.
"Excellent, I loved every lesson and I really appreciate the time and patience Lisa had when teaching me. I also appreciated the extra time Lisa spendt with me doing my Pass Plus which really helped me learn about and gain confidence in motorways and intersections. Lisa is a brilliant driving instructor and I shall definitely be recommending her!! 11th October 2011.
Vicky Stirzaker, 32, Lancaster
"Had driving lessons 5 years ago but did not enjoy the experience. I wasn't very confident and never got to test level."
"I really enjoyed learning to drive with Lisa. Week by week my confidence grew through well structured lessons and lots of support and encouragement. I thouroughly enjoyed my lessons and still can't believe I passed first time!!!" 11th August 2011
Alex Lancaster, 30, Lancaster
Second Driving Instructor
"I passed first time with 2 Minors!" 18th August 2011
"Lisa is a fantastic teacher. She has a thorough and practical approach to teaching. I found Lisa to be friendly, patient and understanding. She teaches her students to drive safely and to drive for life and not just for the 40 minute exam. I would highly recommend her as an instructor. Thanks again Lisa."
Kelly Taylor, 17 from Morecambe
Kelly had no previous driving experience at all.
"Lisa was a very good teacher, who enabled me to become the confident, safe driver I am today. As well as being friendly and patient, she helped me develop my driving skills to a high standard, such as my awareness and road safety. It was a pleasure to learn with Lisa."
Laura Tillotson, 20 Years old living in Heysham. WIth no previous driving experience.
"Lisa was very thorough in her teaching which enabled me to pass first time, she knew what was expected at the date of test, but also gave me help with everyday driving. I would recommend other learners to Lisa even with no previous learning experience. Lisa was very friendly and her sense of humour made the experience all the more enjoyable. Thankyou"
Annia Zalewski, Aged 20 from Bentham (not my usual area covered)
Previous experience was "Not ideal! Confidence deminished rapidly with previous Instructors, expensive and inefficient"
Lisa "Got me through my test, boosted my confidence, gave me clear concise advice, but doesn't beat around the bush! I now have life time skills that I will need in the future."
Sarah Godber, aged 35, from Heysham.
"I had two other driving instructors before I met Lisa... I failed my test with both of them.
Kathryn Glover, Morecambe. No previous driver experience, practiced privately with her family while taking lessons.

Sarah Haley, Aged 20, Morecambe
Previous Driving Experience? None
"I was nervous about learning to drive at first but Lisa made it an enjoyable experience so I looked forward to my lessons. Lisa's teaching was excellent as she was very patient and clear, and the car was great to learn in. Her step-by-step introduction to what I thought would be daunting manoeuvres made them simple to learn. Lisa also helped me improve my attitude and conquer my road rage, so that I can be a safe driver for life. I passed my test first time with NO minors and I owe it all to Lisa's fantastic tuition - Thank You!"
