Thank you Alex for being my driving instructor and helping me pass, and 1st time as well. I still can't get rid of the smile off my face and yes, I finally believe in myself that I CAN DO IT! I came to you having already had 5 lessons with another instructor elsewhere, who completely shattered my confidence and made me believe I'd never be able to master learning to drive. As with anyone, the moment you get to drive home for the first time is a day we all get excited for. It took me the first lesson with you, even if it did take a bit of persuading and encouragement on your part, but I DID IT! Especially having been learning to drive throughout this whole COVID pandemic ordeal, your lessons gave me something to look forward to every week. You let me take the lead with the lesson structure where I wanted to do so, as well as guiding and informing me when I wasn't sure of what to do next, the benefits of the LDC learning system! I just wanted to say I appreciate you putting up with all the shouting (at myself) I did when the car ("I") did something wrong. You kept me calm and collected throughout every lesson and even up to the moment I drove the car for the final time on test day (I'm sorry for the VERY early morning test). To anyone looking for a driving instructor to take lessons with, I couldn't recommend anyone more than Alex (in fact, I already recommended him myself to everyone I know wanting to learn to drive in the area, and am slowly convincing all my friends to learn to drive because of the experience I've had with Alex). He has been the most approachable, funny and helpful driving instructor and even little things such as your little children's cars to help explain something and your sticker dots to help with manoeuvres, you've really thought of everything to make learning to drive as easy as possible I can't thank you enough for your time over the last year, but it has been much appreciated!
