Basically, Jackie is brilliant!
My experience of learning to drive with Jackie. Basically, Jackie is brilliant! I was incredibly nervous about learning to drive, but from the very first lesson Jackie did all she could to put me at my ease. She is so friendly and patient and we always managed to have a laugh, even when I was feeling anxious. She really took the time to get to know me and to find out which teaching methods would work best for me. Our lessons were always well structured, everything was very clearly explained and I always felt able to ask questions. She really made me feel like I was in control of my learning, which helped to build my confidence. I was also keen to get as much practice as possible in between my lessons and Jackie was very supportive of this – she gave lots of advice on the best way to practice and even let my mum sit in on one of our lessons, which was great! I have already recommended Jackie to several people as I am sure I could not have passed first time with any other instructor. She is amazing!
I also wanted to say that I was happy with the service provided by Insight 2 Drive. After I made my enquiry you put me in touch with Jackie really quickly and arranging our lessons was easy. I also appreciated having access to Theory Test Pro. It was really useful and definitely helped me to pass my theory test first time!
Many thanks and best wishes
I had started to have lessons 11 years ago…
I wanted to leave some feedback about my time learning to drive with Jackie Bradley. I had started to have lessons 11 years ago but never really felt comfortable with the instructor, I didn’t make much progress and eventually gave up after around 10 lessons.
I recently decided that it was time to start learning again, I have been really impressed with the progress i have made since Jackie started teaching me. She keeps the instructions simple and easy to understand, she doesn’t panic if i do something wrong and she always keeps me positive about my driving. I am happy to say that i have passed my theory test and i am now booked in for my practical test. I have already recommended Jackie to someone I know and I would strongly recommend her to anyone looking to start lessons.
I have a busy schedule with work and children so its been really helpful how accommodating Jackie has been when trying to fit me in for regular lessons.
I found the practice tests on the insight 2 drive website really useful and I passed my theory test at the first attempt. One or two of the hazard perception tests were hard to use as they were a bit old and hard to clearly see, however I would still encourage people to use the online help.
I have tried other schools…
I am currently learning to drive with jackie and having tried other schools and instructors i wouldn’t go with anybody else.
She’s friendly and puts you at ease but is also professional and reliable.
She has great learning methods and She really wants you to pass and i know i will pass as her as my instructor.
She has the patience of a saint…
I would recommend Jackie to any of my friends or family,as she has the patience of a saint.and very understanding.and i will miss her when we part,i just don’t think,i would of found a better teacher yours gratefully mark

I am on my 4th diving instructor!
I just want to write a review for Jackie.
‘Jackie is my 4th and final driving instructor! Her lessons are genuinely enjoyable, she explains things so they are easy to understand and makes you feel confident behind the wheel. After having issues with previous instructors I am so happy to have found Jackie and I finally feel like I’m on the right track to passing my test! I couldn’t recommend her more’
Thanks, Chole Brooks
I was so disappointed
Ame is honestly fantastic, I loved Colin and was so disappointed that he couldn’t fit me in (the sign of an excellent instructor) but I couldn’t ask for better! She’s brilliant, so kind and patients, and I’m already recommending her to friends.
I was left in the lurch without an instructor.
Can I just say a big thank you for helping me pass my driving test. I was left in the lurch without an instructor and my test was fast approaching, I can’t express my gratitude.
Can I also say how brilliant a job Jerry done with me, he made me feel relaxed in the car and his teaching was not complicated in the slightest, he kept it as simple as possible.
Thank you for everything, I will recommend you to anybody who asks. 🙂 🙂
I Just thought I would drop some fantastic feedback for Jerry.
I am on my 4th lesson and they are going brilliantly. Jerry really helps make me feel at ease while driving and allows me to learn at your own pace. He is very patient and easy to get on with. Jerry makes me feel confident while driving and he gives me constructive feedback throughout the lesson.
I was really struggling with hill starts and he thought on his feet using the last 5 minutes of the lesson by my house to practice on hill starts. He lets you think of 3 strengths and things to work on for next time which I find really helpful. I really do rate Jerry 10/10. Thanks can’t wait for my next lesson!
These Lessons are a birthday Present
Hi ,Many thanks for Georgia’s lesson , she loved It and got on well with Jerry these lessons are A birthday present to her , do u do any block courses ?Thanks
‘It’s been an amazing experience…
Hi there, I just wanted to send in a testimonial for passing my test, my instructor is Leanne condliff and I am a first time passer 🙂
‘It’s been an amazing experience working with Leanne at insight 2 drive, I’ve learnt so much and overcome my anxieties of driving a car with loads of help from her. I passed today first time, and feel so proud of myself & so thankful to Leanne! Thank you so much!-
My first lesson was great!
I really enjoyed my first lesson and I am really looking forward to the next one – Jerry is sound!
I even undertook a 3 hour (satnav-guided) journey
I passed my test with Andy in the autumn of 2012, but haven’t done a lot of driving since, as I live in the city centre, and don’t have the need (or the means) for a car of my own.
I’ve driven hire cars a few times (when visiting family & friends down in Herefordshire), and drive my partner’s car very occasionally.
My father sadly passed away a few weeks ago, so I am down in Herefordshire dealing with his affairs and clearing the house. I have also taken ownership of his car, and it has occurred to me a number of times whilst driving that it is only due to the training I received from youself that I am able to navigate the roads in a safe and efficient manner.
As well as being able to utilise the car for trips to the refuse/recycling centre, I have been able to visit friends in Bristol, and the nearby countryside. I even undertook a 3 hour (satnav-guided) journey to a specific beach on the Welsh coast.
Without them, I would have been unable to ‘jump behind the wheel’
I just wanted to say thank you Andy for all of the lessons and advice I received. Without them, I would have been unable to ‘jump behind the wheel’ as I have done in the last few weeks. Take Care
She made my lessons a laugh.
I passed my test on 25/05/16 and couldn’t have done it without all of Leanne’s help. She was always patient with me and made lessons a laugh. As much as I was made up to pass it has been strange not seeing her every week! Everything I’ve learnt I’ve been able to put into practice driving on my own. A special mention does have to go to Lynne who I started out with. She gave me the basics and built my confidence when I first started learning. I can definitely say I had the two best instructors!
I could not have done it without Leanne
I passed my test with Leanne back in February! I couldn’t have done it without Leanne’s patience and confidence building! Leanne was very accommodating to my situation where I needed intense weekly lessons but then long breaks due to me living abroad! I was petrified of driving and thought I’d never pass! But I did and now I have so much more independence! Thank you so much Leanne and all the best!! X
A Great Fist Lesson
Hello , had great first lesson with Kevin, now I would order another 10 Lessons with him, thank you.
Thank you, Sofija
I have had my first lesson!
Just had my first Lessons today with Gary, Brilliant instructor where everything was picked up fast on in great detail, Already booked in for my 3rd lesson next week and hoping to pass with Insight!
I would recommend him to anyone.
I passed both my theory and practical test with Andy Keywood first time. I could be quite nervous during my lessons but he would allow to go at my own pace so I could be confident in what I was doing, before moving on to the next step. He was very encouraging during my lessons and helped to build my confidence a lot. In my opinion he is a brilliant driving instructor and I would recommend him to anyone.
Thank You, Stephanie Walsh
Its all about teamwork.
Hi. Thank you for all your support over the last `10 month’s, in helping me pass my driving Test. I would highly recommend Barb & Leanne, to any one who is wanting to learn to drive. I couldn’t of passed without there support & help.
It was horrific
I began my driving lessons with another school shortly after my 18th birthday and it was horrific. I had an instructor who was a family friend and did us a ‘discount’ for this relationship. It was the biggest waste of time and money that i had ever invested in and after almost 40 hours of driving around Liverpool whilst he was on his phone and other distracting things I stopped and restarted when I was 20.
I started with Leanne and after one lesson she gave me her estimated number of lessons I would require in order to pass to which i was shocked as it was so low!!! Even though I had a few bad habits from the instructor before.
I absolutely loved my driving lessons and am writing this review 4 hours after passing 1st time in the time frame which Leanne had said it would be. She is an amazing instructor who I beyond trust and will be recommending to any friends or family who tell me they are thinking of learning to drive. I had an absolute ball on my lessons and am now considering to do my pass plus in order to do more lessons with her as i enjoyed them so much!! Many Thanks Leanne!! Don’t think I could have done it without you!!
with Stu. Couldn’t have asked for a better instructor!
I passed my test first time with Leanne, with only 2 minors. She is very patient with nervous learners like myself which made me feel totally at ease. Initially I was taking 90 minute lessons once a week, but closer to my test began a more intense course of 90 minutes per day. I wish I had started the intense sooner, as I found it really beneficial. Leanne was brilliant when accommodating my evening lessons, as I work 9-5, and even offered weekend slots when life got a bit hectic! I would wholeheartedly recommend Leanne, she genuinely is a brilliant instructor. Thank you to all at Insight2Drive for helping me achieve my driving goal.
After delivering a road safety talk to the 6th form.
Thanks to your team who visited today for the first of two talks. Feedback
so far has been really positive.
Greg McLean – St Margaret’s Church of England Academy
Started my refresher course with Barbara Porter after getting 6 points in two years had to do it all again fantastic tutor can’t recommended enough a*****
Lynne was very good for my daughter…
and gave her the confidence that she needed. From the very first lesson they hit it off and it worked.
As the weeks went on she grew with every session and so did I. When I first went out with Beth she nearly killed me but as the weeks went on I was calm and enjoyed my trips out (although I kept getting told off as my way is apparently wrong).
Thanks for teaching my daughter the safe way to drive it’s something she now posses for her future driving years thanks to Lynne.
Terry O’Connor | Widnes Vikings
Safe and Confident
Passed my driving test first time with Stuart would highly recommend Stuart to anyone who wants to learn to drive in a safe and confident way great instructor
Keighley Meah for Jackie
After putting off my learning to drive for years, I finally decided to do it and I am so glad that I rang insight2drive who then put me onto Jackie Bradley..
First of all, I have never met anybody like this woman, what a lovely, funny, genuine person, inside and out. Before my first lesson I was so anxious, until I got to the car and was greeted by Jackie with the warmest welcome. The saying “A smile goes a very long way” is true, because she put me at ease, she reassured me everything was going to be okay and that she would not only teach me how to drive, but how to be a safe driver and she was right. I passed my test first time, and it is all down to Jackie! The way she teaches you things and her little pep talks – makes them stick in your head, which for me, helped a lot! I cannot thank her enough for everything!!
I will miss my lessons with her. She is simply the best out there!!! I HIGHLY recommend her and have done to a few already!!
Good luck for the future Jackie, thanks
Jessica Bull for Leanne
I was asked by Leanne to do a review and she’s sent me this email to send it to:

Many Thanks.. I am so pleased with the result I got and was more than happy to write this review 😀
Thomas Martin for Kevin
I’m a little late in sending my testimonial but i think its better late than never. I can’t talk any higher about the service provided by Insight2drive and in particular my instructor Kevin. He recommended the right course for me (the silver package) and was brilliant at working in the amount of lessons i requested around mine, and his, busy schedule. I went into my test confident of passing and i did first time. I would, and have, recommended him to anyone thinking of taking up lessons.
Thanks Insight and thanks Kevin. Sincerely,
God awful standards
Managed to take me from god awful standards taught by a P@@@@@@@@@ instructor to test standard in one 5 hour session 1 day prior to test day. Passed 1st time! Brilliant instructor and very informative. Will highly recommend her services and very grateful for her help. 10/10
Helena Cliffe for Stuart
Been driving for almost 3 weeks now and its been amazing and couldn’t have done it without Stu. he has been the best driving instructor always going the extra mile.
Lyn Riley for Leanne
My driving inductor Leanne. She was fantastic really was patient and give me the best quality of learning to drive. I passed within a matter of weeks. I recommend to anyone this service.
Beth Warr for Colin
I recently passed my test first time at Garston & wanted to say how impressed I was with my instructor Colin. We had about one session a week for the space of three months & he gave me the confidence to become a decent driver. He was always calm, gave good suggestions & advice & taught me the essential skills I needed a to pass the test. I would have no qualms with recommending him to friends (& I already have). You are lucky to have him on your team. Kind regards,
David James for Leanne
Leanne was my instructor and I was really pleased with how the lessons went. The objectives of the lessons were explained at the start of each one and I found it very helpful that at the end we went over what I’d learnt. The written sheet was helpful to see if there were any gaps.
Leanne was really patient and made sure I was confident on all aspects of the test before we moved onto the next. The way she taught was really clear and concise. I would definitely recommend your lessons to anyone who asked. Thanks
Holly Dobson for Lynne
“Lessons: They go at a steady pace to suit me, challenge me at times which helps with my confidence. Always recap on previous lesson so I know what to work on.learn something new everytime Lynne: Has Patience, asks me what I’d like to do and we reflect after each lesson which reinforces what I’ve learnt. Cheerful and always willing to help in time of crisis!”
Victoria for Lynne
I have recently started lessons again after various attempts in the past (over 150 lessons) and I was extremely nervous. Lynne put me at ease immediately and has been great for building my confidence. Four lessons in with her and I’m already at a fairly decent level of driving and my nerves have all but disappeared. I would really recommend her to anyone, particularly if you’re feeling nervous.
Kate McCabe for Leanne
Passed My Test With Leanne Condliff ADI Best Instructor It Boosted My Confidence Made Me See I Could Do It And After My Bad Experiences Its Nice To See There Are Lovely Genuine Instructors Thanks Alot Leanne It Means So Much An My Pass Means Everything To Me.

Jack Watson for Richard
Just want to drop you a message to stick on the website about Richard, if you could. I really enjoyed our lessons, he was a very good teacher. Richard was patient and very understanding when I couldn’t get things right. He taught me well until I was confident to do everything perfectly. I fully recommend anyone learning to drive to use Richard!
Couldn’t ask for better
Just passed my driving test with Barbra! Couldn’t of asked for a better instructor.. So happy!
Abbie 🙂 x
Lisa-Marie Reilly for Colin
Hello 🙂 thank you so much for your support today! I needed a good telling off, there nerves nearly beat me! Still not sunk in yet, I changed my policy, it was only £180 more for the year. Thanks again, you are wonderful 🙂
Nicola Bartlett for Leanne.
Leanne was a great instructor who made sure the lessons were focussed on what I needed. Having had lessons in different cities with different instructors Leanne was able to identify and help with my weaker areas and help familiarise me with the area quickly. Leanne is a brilliant teacher who listens to her pupils and plans the lessons based on what you feel you need. Overall she helped me improve my confidence which had suffered a bit. Having passed first time I feel confident about driving on my own. Leanne also made driving fun and made me feel relaxed. I think that’s probably the reason I passed and that I am looking forward to getting on the road. I am a much much better driver now than when I met her and enjoy it a lot more.
Nicola Terry for Andy.
Andy came recommended by 3 of my work colleagues (one of whom also had a son who had passed with Andy!) and am so glad that I took their guidance. Everything they said about his great attitude and approach to teaching was true and I’ve passed first time. I have no doubt that this was due in great part to Andy’s calm and friendly way of working and steady, thorough preparation for my test. As someone who has struggled with confidence learning to drive, I found Andy’s patience and confidence in me to get there to be extremely supportive. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Andy’s skills to anyone who told me they were seeking a highly professional and competent instructor. Thanks, Andy – you’re a star!!!
Sam McCleary for Barbara.
I would like to say a massive Thank you to Barbara who has been very supportive and a great instructor, always patient with me and a big help!! I couldn’t of passed without her, will definitely be recommending her to friends and family. Thanks again Barbara.
Dave Hampson for Barbara.
My brother Richard Hampson recommended you to me last year and I would like to thank you and your instructors for guiding both Jayde and Alex Hampson to a first time pass. Great news!!! Very best wishes,
Dave Hampson (their father) |
Vicky Christian for Barbara.
I passed my test yesterday with Babrbra 3rd time lucky I just want to say what a fantastic woman she is and how much I enjoyed my lessons with her she made me feel so comfortable an give me loads of confidence I can’t thank her enough I must say I will miss my lessons thank u so much insight2dive
Zoe Pearce for Jackie.
I passed my test on 13th February 2014, after having two previous driving instructors, Jackie Bradley was the one who helped me pass my test. After being recommended by a friend in the Summer I started my lessons in September, after not driving for over a year. Originally from Manchester I did not know Liverpool very well so Jackie helped me find my way around and recognise local areas. Jackie has great teaching techniques that help you to understand and remember certain processes needed when driving, she is also very patient! I would recommend Jackie to anyone looking to start driving lessons or pick them back up after having a previous instructor. Thank you so much Jackie!
Zoe Pearce | Wavertree.
Rebecca Carey for Leanne.
I passed my test near the end of last month thanks to Leanne! She’s patient and very easy to get along with which makes learning to drive easier and more fun. She’s very flexible and is open to teaching you in whatever style suits you best. I would highly recommend Leanne as an instructor if you want enjoyable lessons and a pass at the end! Thanks again for everything Leanne! Rebecca x
Rebecca Carey | Anfield.
Hannah Thomson for Barbara.
Barbara was a great instructor who was really patient, easy-going and helped me to control my nerves. I looked forward to my driving lessons with her as she was very encouraging and made the lessons enjoyable. I would recommend Barbara without hesitation. Thank you very much Barbara for all your support!
Hannah Thomson | Gateacre.
Alyx Harrington Groves for Andy.
I loved going on lessons with Andy! He always assured me of any queries or doubts I had about driving. He made me a confident driver and I can’t praise him enough for how much he has helped me. I would recommend Andy to any new learner or current learner who needs a confidence boost. Straight forward, well explained and all over made learning to drive an enjoyable experience.
Alyx Harrington Groves | Huyton.
Beth Townsend for Leanne.
Leanne was the third driving instructor I’d seen since first deciding I’d learn to drive about 9 years ago! Going to university, moving house and having children meant it kept getting put off but I’m so glad once I found Leanne she stuck with me. Flexibility was key to me getting the hours I needed in and it took nearly 12 months but every single one of them was worth it for my first time pass! I was SO nervous until the test actually began and then I couldn’t believe it was happening. I would never have been able to do it without Leanne and her patience!
Beth Townsend | Norris Green.
Emma Lawler for Andy.
I passed my driving test on the 27th November 2013 thanks to the fantastic Andy. Every week I looked forward to my lesson as I knew I’d be getting the best instruction possible. Andy is professional, patient and explained everything thoroughly. Every lesson was well structured and I felt I was progressing with everyone I had. He helped to build up my confidence by putting me at ease with funny conversations about random facts and provided me with the skills for both the theory and practical test needless to say I passed first time. Andy never let me down and always arrived on time. I highly recommend Andy as a driving instructor if you want the best.
Emma Lawler | Huyton.
Charlene Bushell for Colin.
Colin was a great instructor and helped me to control my nerves. I never thought I would be able to pass first time. Insight2Drive is a great driving school and I would recommend it to anybody. Thanks a lot. Charlene.
Charlene Bushall | Kirkdale | Merseyside.
Simon Parry for Leanne.
Leanne has been a fantastic driving instructor; patient, informative and refreshing in her technique. I was doing a refresher intensive course 12 hours then my test which I wanted to use the time to iron out my driving and get rid of some bad habits I have developed over the last couple of years driving. We achieved more and more each hour and I could see that the improvement was steady and we worked on what both Leanne and myself knew to be the most importantly. I have had 5 different driving instructors since starting to drive, (making Leanne the sixth) all prior instructors had some sort of problems mostly not giving me the full hour getting me home early so as not to be late or using old techniques which are outmoded. Leanne was a breath of fresh air if anything we stayed out longer and used new ways of explaining old manoeuvres which let me see things in a new way. Leann’s interest was to get another safe driver on the road and not to make as much money from me as she could I would recommend her to any new driver and old who want to pass and would say to count yourselves lucky if you manage to get her as an instructor.
Simon Parry | St. Helen’s.
Matt Dutton for Leanne.
Many thanks to Leanne for teaching me to drive and helping me pass my test (4 minors), she has been a brilliant instructor. I came to Leanne low on confidence and self belief after failed tests. Leanne’s calm and patient approach helped me a lot. She really knew the main areas I needed to work on to be test ready. Thanks to Leanne I am a very confident driver now. I would definitely recommend her to others!
Matt Dutton | Everton | Liverpool.
Margaret Devaney for Leanne.
I passed first time with only two minors. I had been with another company before, but they were rubbish when I started with Leanne it was basically like learning from the beginning again. Leanne is an excellent instructor, she is very patient and lovely to drive with. I will definitely be recommending her to friends and family. Thanks for all your help!
Margaret Devaney | Allerton | Liverpool.
Alice Robinson for Jackie.
I don’t live in the area usually covered by insight2drive but Jackie was recommended to me. i and very glad she was. she came out of her way to help me to get to test standard and pass my test on my third attempt. my nerves were my fall down and little bad habits I picked up driving with my husband which with Jackie’s patience, help and support i was able to get there. i appreciate Jackie’s help greatly and she is a credit to the school and any pupil she will teach they couldn’t ask for a better teacher. thank you very much Jackie.
Alice Robinson | Crewe.
John Duffy for Barbara.
I have found Barbara to be very knowledgeable and understanding of what is required to motivate and inspire her students to get the best out of them. I have had previous instructors in the past who could not give me the confidence and belief that was needed to get me to test standard. Barbara does in my opinion have that special quality that is required that allows the student to reach their true potential. I would recommend Barbara to any student who was willing to put the hard work in to reach the standard that is required to pass the test.
John Duffy | Huyton | Merseyside.
Marita Macdonald for Andy.
Andy is a super driving instructor who prepares you very thoroughly for your driving and theory tests. His feedback gave me a great deal of confidence in my ability as a driver. He is always very calm and constructive in his approach. I would definitely recommend Andy as a driving instructor to anyone who wants to pass the first time.
Joanne Spencer for Leanne.
Just passed my driving test today!! Leanne is so patient and helpful with every part of the driving lessons and gave me the confidence I needed to pass my driving test! Would recommend her to anyone. Thanks again Leanne! Couldn’t have done it without you!!
Joanne Spencer | Seaforth | Merseyside.
Gemma Evans for Colin.
Colin is one of the most patient people I have ever met, his knowledge about driving is of a vast experience and he is so passionate about what he does and that is what makes him so experienced. I never had much confidence and was quite nervous getting back behind the wheel after having my son, I had previous driving lessons with another driving instructor and I didn’t feel I had learnt anything from him after spending just one driving lesson with Colin. I passed my test first attempt 2 days ago after 7 months of lessons and I can’t believe how far I have come. I would highly recommend Colin to anyone and I already have to my sister in law he is an absolute star and I couldn’t have done it without him. Thank you for putting up with me for so long and everything you have done for me. Excellent driving instructor, very funny man ABSOLUTE GENT!!!!!!! Thank you.
Gemma Evans | Belle Vale | Merseyside.
Stephanie Nelson for Andy.
I am so happy that Andy is my driving instructor, he is grade A! He is very professional and has helped ease all my nerves and calm me down and I know for a fact I’m going to pass my driving test first time as he is class. Definitely will be recommending!!
Stephanie Nelson | Speke | Liverpool.
Suzanne O’Connor for Colin.
I would like to personally thank Colin for his patience and understanding as a driving instructor. He is an excellent instructor who has helped me endlessly in getting me through my driving test which i passed Friday!! Delighted to say the least!!!! I first met Colin in February this year and i was terrified of driving, hence to say I’ve had my provisional since i was 19, imp now 37!!! For years and years i have gone through various instructors and not been sucessful, mostly giving up after a couple of lessons due to my fear of driving. Thankfully i found Colin, who has gave me self belief in achieving what i once thought was un-achievable!!! Even before my test, i had major doubts but Colin urged me on – Thank you sooooooooo much Colin!! x
Suzanne O’Connor | Huyton | Merseyside.
Ryan McGuinness for Gill and Leanne.
Highly recommended driving school Gill you legend!! Thanks for the help and Leanne for taking me for the test thanks a lot!!
Ryan Mcguinness | Liverpool.
James White for Andy.
Driving test passed 10th October at Garston driving test centre. Andy is an excellent Driving Instructor. He was recommended to me by a work colleague who had struggled with his previous driving instructor, and I have myself already recommended him to one friend (who is close to taking their driving test), and to the niece of another friend (who did the Pass Plus course with him).
I had driving lessons, and took a driving test, when I was 17, but I was very apprehensive about learning to drive again, especially in a city centre environment. However, Andy was calm, patient, and explained everything in an easy to understand manner. He was always on time, and I always felt that I was getting great value for money. I have also booked a 2 hour motorway driving lesson for this coming Thursday.
I was very disheartened after failing my first test on the 12th September (a serious fault on my parallel park), but after a few more driving lessons I felt ready again, and was very pleased to pass my driving test (with the same driving examiner, coincidentally) just four weeks later. Many Thanks
James White | Liverpool.
Deborah Parkin re. James White for Andy.
Just to let you know that James White had his first drive in my car today. He drove around some of the roads on the driving test routes to get him used to my car, and then he drove through town to Aintree. James’ driving was great and I am looking forward to being a passenger again soon (he is going to drive to work on Monday).
Deborah Parkin | Liverpool.
Widnes Vikings for Kathy.
Can I firstly start by saying thank you so very much for a brilliant presentation to the Vikings youth players on Monday night. The players will have got a lot from it and the coaches were really impressed with your enthusiasm and your ease at which you delivered the session. As a thank you we have sent a tweet out today.
Tim Holmes – Widnes Vikings.
Joseph Smith for Andy.
Andy is a fantastic driving instructor and a great guy. I felt completely at ease and confident on the road due to Andy’s professionalism and knowledge. I passed my driving test 1st time which I put down to the fact I looked forward to driving lessons as I knew I was getting the best driving instruction. Andy explained things in depth as a driving lesson would progress, and teach me skills for both practical and for theory which I also passed 1st go with only 1 wrong answer. I would not hesitate in recommending Andy as a driving instructor, as I guarantee you will benefit from the vast skills and knowledge he possesses, whilst having a laugh and enjoying the driving lesson at the same time. Thanks again mate, and all the best.
Joseph Smith | Walton | Liverpool.
Nickola for Colin.
I passed my driving test last year with Colin. I started taking my driving lessons with him when he worked for another driving school. I was really nervous about learning to drive and put off taking driving lessons for a few years. Colin was very understanding and put me at ease within a few minutes. When Colin moved to Insight 2 Drive I had to make the decision whether to get new driving instructor with the driving school I was currently with, or change to Insight 2 Drive and keep Colin as my driving instructor. The decision was really easy and I stayed with Colin. He was really supportive and was always willing to answer any questions I had (no matter how silly I thought they were). I have recommended Colin to family and friends and would also recommend Colin to anybody who is thinking about taking driving lessons.
Nickola Parkinson | Prescot | Merseyside.
Jack Owens of the Widnes Vikings for Gill.
I would like to pass on my thanks and sincere gratitude to Gill, for helping my son Jack Owens, to pass his driving test first time. He always looked forward to his driving lessons and never once passed any negative comments about any part of his driving lessons. Because Jack does a lot of training due to his commitments to Widnes Vikings, he sometimes had to change the times or days of his driving lessons at very short notice and Gill was always very accommodating.

Danielle Howard for Colin.
Colin is a good driving instructor. He is very patient and his instructions are easy to understand. He is very friendly and always willing to answer any questions I had. My driving lessons were an hour and a half each time and I found I learnt more this way which is why I think I passed first time. I will recommend Colin to any of my friends who are going to learn to drive.

Phil Glanville for Gill.
Just wanted to say many thanks to you and your colleague, Gill, for giving him confidence to pass his driving test. I have spoken to Gill. From the 1st time he met her till the day of his driving test at no point has he complained, moaned, sulked or tried to give an excuse not to go driving. His comments to people who have asked him how the driving is going and how is your driving instructor have always been positive. He even preferred to go with Gill than me!
We may ask Gill to do the PASS PLUS if you recommend it. I hope Rebecca (next door but 1) has the same success. Thanks Kathy and a bigger thanks to Gill.

David Gillin for Liz.
Liz and Insight 2 Drive were recommended to me by several friends when I became unhappy with my driving instructor from another driving school. I soon realised why. She’s friendly and put me at ease right away. I really liked how each driving lesson had a structure and she gave me points to improve each week. Liz is a brilliant driving instructor with bags of patience and I’d recommend her to anyone – It’s because of Liz I passed first time, any problems I had she went through over and over again. Thanks Liz!! (I was saying ‘tyres ‘n’ tarmac’ in my sleep!!)

Kath Parkes for Simon.
THANK YOU !
Cannot thank Simon enough for his excellent tuition resulting in Bethany passing her driving test first time. We changed to Insight 2 Drive as we were not making progress with our driving instructor and within the first driving lesson Simon not only raised Bethany’s confidence tremendously but outlined fully what we should be looking for as parents guiding our daughter through the learning to drive process. Everything was transparent and clearly explained and at every part of the process we had absolute confidence in Simon. I would highly recommend Insight 2 Drive and have already reserved driving lessons for my youngest daughter for next year. Thank you SO much.

Nikki Hawley for Barbara.
I just want to say a BIG THANK YOU to Barbara for all her help and support in passing my driving test 1st time. She is a fantastic driving instructor and always made my driving lessons enjoyable. On my first driving lesson she made me feel at ease and always reminded me not to forget to breathe during difficult situations! Barbara has also helped me complete my Pass Plus and I couldn’t have done it without her. She is a credit to Insight 2 Drive and highly recommended.
Thanks again Barbara, you’ve been great.

Ashley Kevin for Andy.
I found my driving experience with Andy very enjoyable. His teaching methods are clear and easy to follow, even if you don’t understand first time he has the patience to explain it again. He is a caring driving instructor; if it wasn’t for him I would never have been able to complete my driving test, as on the day he had to fight my corner with the test centre as they wanted to cancel my driving test for no apparent reason, even though it had been booked 6 weeks previous. I would recommend Andy to any new learner driver.

Catherine McGlashan for Liz.

Phil Naylor for Liz.
I just wanted to pass on my thanks to Liz. I started my driving lessons about 7 months ago and she guided me through my theory, to passing my practical test first time! I am really happy to have had such a positive learning experience with her, and would recommend her to absolutely anyone! Thanks so much. I have now just taken my pass plus with Simon and he was excellent. A definite asset. I had a great time and will recommend him to anyone. Thanks again.

Galiya Khasanova for Simon.
I just wanted to pass my thanks to Simon, who helped me a lot to prepare for my driving test. I passed it only with 3 minors from the first time on 30/04. Thank you very much!

Silke Weischede for Andy.
Just to drop you a line and say thank you for helping me building confidence in driving and loosing the insecurity and fear in and of traffic. Me, the little Yaris and SatNav made successful trips to Leeds and Newcastle, and it feels great! Although the SatNav brought me into difficult situations (I only mention Leeds City Centre with this horrible loop traffic lane…) I stayed calm and tried to be safe. Sometimes it is difficult to react to aggressive drivers (especially in roundabouts when people try to cut lanes), and I then get a bit nervous, but otherwise it is so much better! Motorways are OK now after all the miles I have done on them. I even can drive with passengers now without me fearing for their safety. The only thing that still bothers me is parking, So, just to say thank you and hope you are OK! Cheers, Silke.

Linda Conlan for Kathy.
Just wanted to say a really big thank you for all your hard work and help. You kept me sane when I wanted to give up and felt I’d never achieve passing my driving test. You’re the best!! Love Linda. x

James Knox for Kathy.
“Hi Kathy, I am just e-mailing you to thank you for all the help you provided me with in enabling me to pass my driving test, and especially for being so patient with the bay parking. Will speak to you soon concerning the pass plus scheme, thanks again, safe driving.

Stuart Owens for Kathy.
Hello Kathy, you marvellous woman, just sending a note to say thank you for all your help, advice and patience it was a very educational, confidence boosting experience. I would recommend you to anyone who was nervous about their driving skills an hour with you in my experience was more valuable than about six hours spent with another driving instructor. Once again thanks, Stuart.
