I would like to say a big thank you to Linda Proctor from Pass, the best instructor I could have asked for. Linda is very patient , professional, kind and calm, but firmer when she needs to be , which was a perfect remedy for a very nervous but very determined first time driver such as myself. After 4 months of driving I passed FIRST time in Canterbury last week !
I can honestly say I would not have passed so quickly or confidently without Linda.I would highly recommend Linda to anyone.

Paige Stitson

Couldn’t recommend Pass and Steve enough! Honestly Amazing!
