I had tried learning to drive a manual car when I was 17 and hated it. I suddenly found myself in a position where I needed to drive for work, so I decided to give automatic a go. I was a very nervous learner who, deep down, never felt I had the ability to drive. I had had quite a negative experience with driving in the past and I was very reluctant to pick up driving again, especially in Reading, where I live.
From the first lesson Jim make me feel relaxed. He has a great sense of humour but is very professional and reliable. He is thorough in his approach and explains things well. He was also very calm and understanding when I made mistakes.
I honestly believe I would not have passed my test without his help.
