I just want to say a big thank you for supporting Izzy and teaching her so well. It was a great relief yesterday for both Izzy and me as you can imagine it saves a great deal of time. She safely drove to school today!
All the best. Paula (mum)


Lucy was a very helpful and encouraging instructor, she made sure I was confident in all aspects of driving, and made me feel very relaxed during the lessons. It was really useful to receive emailed feedback after every lesson to help me improve my driving ability.I would recommend her to everyone.Thanks for all your help Lucy!


After failing two tests with a previous instructor and not really understanding why, then trying a LOT more different instructors, I decided to give up, thinking I would never be confident on the road. Seven years later, I found Lucy and decided to give it another go from scratch and passed first time with her! Lucy is a fun, energetic, easy-going instructor! She made lessons feel more like I was taking a friend for a drive than sitting in a lesson. I made plenty of scary mistakes yet she calmly ensures these are good lessons to be learnt and nothing to worry about. Lessons are about what you want to improve rather than set to any strict order, and the lesson notes she sends are so helpful! I can guarantee that when anyone passes with Lucy emotions will be torn between happiness you passed and sadness that lessons will end. Miss you Lucy, and THANK YOU!! xx

I could never have passed my driving test had it not been for Lucy’s patience and inspiring style of teaching, which really boosted my confidence. Lucy’s lessons are both challenging and enjoyable which turned a nervous learner, like myself, into a confident driver. The only downside of passing my test is that I’ll really miss my lessons with Lucy!

Lucy puts the fun into learning how to drive. She gave me confidence in my driving with her brilliant advice and guidance. I looked forward to every lesson as I learnt something new every time. Lucy is a wonderful lady who will put all her time and effort in making sure you get the best tuition possible, (her Mini Cooper is pretty awesome too!). I would highly recommend Lucy’s School of Driving. Katie x

I had been learning to drive (not very successfully) for nearly 2 years and had already switched instructors twice, having had not very much confidence in my driving ability to begin with. I’m so glad that I made the effort to find Lucy, her methods were much more straightforward to learn and remember, and I passed my test first time! I would thoroughly recommend her, particularly for students of a more nervous disposition. She put me completely at ease, and always provided me with thorough follow-up notes after every lesson, plus all the little invaluable hints and tips along the way! Thanks Lucy, I couldn’t have done it without you!” Kindest Regards, Lauren.

Molly Hopwood

I was really nervous to start driving but Lucy put me at ease straight away, she helped me to be confident about driving and was always very patient. I really don’t think I could have passed my test first time without Lucy and i am so grateful for that! I would definitely recommend Lucy to anyone, she is friendly, funny and kind, and not only taught me how to pass the exam but also how to be a competent and confident driver.

Isabelle Moore

Thank you so much for all the driving lessons! You really are a 10/10 teacher, proof of that being in my passing first time! I really enjoyed the lessons and it was fantastic to have someone who knew the area and what the examiners were looking for so well! I used to be a really anxious driver before I started with you but now I feel ready to face the road with confidence! Thank you again and all the best, Izzy xx

Olivia Van Der Matt

I was so nervous before my first driving lesson. I didn’t know what to expect, but from the moment I got into the car, Lucy made me feel really comfortable with her warm personality and turned my nerves into excitement about starting to drive. She gradually built up my confidence on the roads, right up until the test day. By that time, with help from Lucy, I was barely nervous and was able to do my test with no fears or worries.My driving experience with Lucy has only been positive, she is a very understanding and supportive person, only wanting the best for her students. I had heard from my friends that their driving lessons were boring and seemed to pass really slowly, but I never felt like that during mine. Lucy was always lovely and chatty, making me laugh all the time and she genuinely became my friend. Thank you for all your advice and support xx
