Long story short: I would 100% recommend Terry to everyone. He’s a lovely guy, a fantastic, trustworthy instructor, and essentially a life coach too. Genuinely don’t think I could’ve chosen any better when looking for an instructor.
Now the long story: When I started I was very nervous. I felt ready to learn but I was still quite scared. I contacted a few instructors, had a lesson with one that felt quite formal and impersonal, messaged another but didn’t feel any connection to them. I wanted to make sure I chose well so I kept looking and found Terry. Straight away he was engaging, he told me about his podcasts (go listen to them!) and I really felt like he cared and was just a nice person. He took away a lot of the anxiety I had about driving and he felt like a mentor as well as an instructor. Every lesson we set goals for what I wanted to achieve, which made the learning process feel very personalised.
Terry was always attentive to my concerns so I felt safe and comfortable despite initially being so scared of driving.
I’ve always really looked forward to our lessons and in a way it’s a bit sad that he’s taught me so well that I’m about to do my test and potentially not have any more lessons with him!
Either way though, I feel like I’ll stay part of his community of students and if I ever need advice about driving in the future, he’s just one message away.
