Rebekah automatic driving instructor

I never thought I would find the confidence in myself to believe I could drive. Before moving to always pass I even said that even if I did pass I wouldn’t drive because of the anxiety it gave me, it was just something to get ticked off and move on.

After changing instructors this changed and Rebekah made me believe in myself. She’s got fantastic interpersonal skills, has the patience of a saint and is a genuinely kind and caring person. 8 months after passing I’m a confident driver and I couldn’t have done it without her. Thank you for everything.

 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!!
