Rebekah Dobner - Woodley, Earley, Reading Driving Instructor

 My eldest started to learn with Becki in April this year and 7 months later he passed first time. He was very nervous about remembering things and screwing up and was always very stressed out about it, but Becki was brilliant, she kept him calm, reassured him throughout the lessons and adapted her way of teaching to his way of learning. Which made a massive difference. We would highly recommend Becki and Always Pass Driving School! Thanks

I can’t recommend Always Pass & Saima more!! I learnt ten years ago but hated driving and was too
scared to ever take my test. Fast forward ten years and after learning with Saima I passed my test
first time today! My lessons have been amazing since the start and I’ll miss my weekly catch ups!
Thank you for being patient and letting me practice parallel parking a crazy amount – it paid off!!

Alvon May

Hello I am Alvon, I am excited to join Always Pass Driving school

I have undertaken the most up to date training and development demanded by the DVSA to be allowed to instruct students.

I will conducting automatic Lessons in around the Newbury/Thatcham and covering the local surrounding villages in a super easy to drive automatic electric vehicle, offering relaxed, comfortable CO2 neutral driving.

I have over 15 years of advanced driving experience as a front line emergency services worker. I am passionate about road safety and in helping people to achieve the best they can be. I have worked as a trainer, teaching others to find their own path.

As part of my professional career in the front line I have sadly seen the devastating impact collisions have on victims and those left behind and my drive is not just to coach people to pass their driving test but to ensure they continue safe and considerate driving every time they get behind the wheel for years to come.

Lessons will be structured but relaxed, fun and engaging. Guiding and coaching you on your driving journey.

The aim is to Practice, Learn, Pass and become a safe, confident and independent driver.
