Fran is the best. I was so nervous, I had 40 hours of lessons before I change to Fran, but couldn’t do. basic manoeuvres etc.. In less than 15 hours of lessons Fran transformed me to a confident, safe driver, and the rest is history I passed my test. Fran is so friendly and professional and put you at ease.
I totally recommend Fran.

Fran is an amazing driving instructor built my confidence up!
I felt so relaxed having her in the car next to me and she was so patient with me if I was having a blonde moment which happened most times!

highly recommend!!
