I’m friendly, patient and reliable. I like to teach in a relaxed learning environment so students can feel comfortable.
Karen Heywood is the best instructor! She is calm and friendly and is so encouraging.I can’t thank her enough for all her help.She is so understanding and was always reassuring when I was feeling nervous. I will miss our driving lessons together as I loved our chats. I would highly recommend Karen for anyone learning to drive, especially someone who is feeling nervous to start driving as she makes it a fun experience.
Karen gets 10 stars just for putting up with me . A brilliant, friendly, and understanding instructor who helped me through all the difficulties I had with getting a grip on driving as a result of my ADHD, even when I thought I couldn't do it at times! Would definitely recommend to any who want a fab instructor to get them through to getting their license and enjoy doing it.
Just wanted to write a review of my both my sons driving instructor Karen Heywood, who was just amazing! She was understanding and supportive through both their lessons and test. They both passed FIRST time and I wanted to write this review to highly recommend both Karen and Pass Driving School, thank you!
I’ve had a few instructors while trying the get my licence but Karen was the best by far,she was patient and calm and always took things at my pace.Her teaching techniques were amazing, she broke things down in a way that made the process much easier. I would highly recommend Karen, I only wish I had found her sooner.
Karen is a very knowledgeable instructor with a great, constructive attitude towards driving. Lessons are structured in a logical manner with time devoted to covering mistakes and planning for the driving test. I was ultimately able to pass my driving examination on the FIRST attempt thanks to Karen’s teaching.
