Just last week Yuliya got some stellar A level results, and she’s followed up this week by passing her driving test. I hear a rumour that the nightlife in Basingstoke might be quite lively tonight, too! I hope you have a lot of fun tonight Yuliya, and enjoy driving your nice car. It’s been a genuine pleasure : )


Well done Olive!! A new job, a nice car waiting for you and a new driving licence! It’s been a bit of a journey what with lockdown test cancellations and virus fun but it’s all behind you now. I shall miss your lessons – there was never a dull moment : )


After the emotional roller coaster of the Euro final on Sunday, today’s test was a piece of cake for Joe. A nice smooth drive around Basingstoke and Old Basing with his helpful and chatty examiner, and all the pressure was gone! I wish you all the very best for the future Joe, and enjoy driving carefully 🙂


I think Mwamba set the world record for the shortest time between booking a test and passing: less than twelve hours! Booked last night after ten, passed this morning before ten. A pleasant way to spend a sunny midsummer morning 🙂 Congratulations Mwamba, enjoy driving and stay safe.


Morgan took her nice examiner for a quick tour of Basingstoke and Oakley and came back with her licence: well done Morgan! You can put all your worries behind you now. I told you it would be easy, didn’t I?


Oria passed today! There was a short break in the rain which made life a bit easier (I left my coat in the car) and Oria made the most of it. Not only a skilled driver, Oria is an accomplished pianist and she hit all the right notes today!


Globe trotting Alice has visited more countries than I ever will. It’s been interesting hearing about foreign climes. However, Alice confined herself to the streets of Basingstoke this morning and drove flawlessly (apart from that speed bump!) to get her full licence. Well done! Enjoy driving and resuming your travels when the current restrictions are lifted (sooner rather than later I hope).


Arran is a Reading supporter! It doesn’t affect his driving though 🙂 He did something very unusual today in his early morning, drizzly test: he drove with no faults at all! That is a very rare achievement. Congratulations Arran, it’s been a pleasure helping you get your licence. Enjoy yourself in your Polo and (of course) take care.


Leila’s test came up very quickly after the virus lockdown. No problem! Leila chatted to her lovely examiner non stop throughout the test and came away with a well deserved pass. Congratulations Leila – I hope to see you for a spin on the motorway.


Jared takes after his Mum in that he’s a great driver and I had the privilege of teaching them both! Equally happy driving a tractor with a huge trailer or my tiny car, Jared drove really well today and deservedly passed. Enjoy driving your car Jared!
