I needed to write you a testimonial -
"Thanks very much Noel for helping me pass my driving test first time.
I honestly wasn't sure I could do it, being a late learner. I've had other instructors, but they never gave me the freedom to make my own mistakes, and to allow me to see how to drive properly in a way that I understood, in a way that made sense to me. You achieved that.
I enjoyed the challenges you set and your assured personality, and sometimes your cockiness! It was a really positive experience for me to learn with you."
Now how about we organise this pass plus? I'm not going to be buying a car any time soon, but I am curious as to the benefits it will have for ease of hiring and lower insurance rates. How many days/hours would I need to have available for this? Would I be better doing it if I have not been driving for some time, just before starting to drive regularly?
