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!


Nathan’s speciality is artificial intelligence and cloud computing which makes driving a piece of cake by comparison. A lovely drive around Basingstoke this morning followed by some “precision” parking 🙂 Well done Nathan, enjoy driving to your new job!


Ivan builds houses but work slowed today while he took his test – and also because the heavens opened and it rained very hard. The weather didn’t put Ivan off though – it was an excellent drive around the puddles. Good luck and safe driving, Ivan!


Shy, retiring, lacking in confidence – fortunately Tom is none of these! With a “let’s go!” attitude Tom got stuck into his lessons and passed his test very quickly. He was determined not to cut any corners though (figuratively or literally) – and that’s the main reason for his success. Congratulations Tom!


Young children can be a bit tiring – especially if they don’t let you get to sleep until 4:30 am! Fortunately Ashley didn’t let this bother her, and took everything in her stride on her test today. A lovely drive, Ashley – well done!


An excellent drive today ensures that Amy is all set to take her dogs to lots of far flung places. An expert (and soon to be graduate) in animal behavior, Amy probably had a few insights into her instructor’s quirks! Well done Amy!


Budding entrepreneur Jak took his test in his stride today. An early start, broken bones and a demanding route were no problem and Jak scored a well deserved pass. I’ll look forward to seeing you on Dragon’s Den, Jak – either pitching or investing!


The long arm of the law steered Oscar to success today – he’s not only an excellent driver but also a law student. He’s following in the footsteps of his equally talented Mum – who passed with Wayfarer 31 years ago! Congratulations to you Oscar!!


Friday afternoons won’t be the same for me now that Cora has passed her test. After a quick visit to Halfords she has her “P” plates. No more cycling to work in the rain – a cosy Fiat 500 will be a pleasant change. Congratulations Cora – I was so pleased for you!
