Kim is an excellent instructor teaches everything you will ever need to know for when you pass your test and makes you feel very comfortable and relaxed especially when first learning to drive and not doesn’t let you get down in the dumbs if you make any mistakes and walks you through what you could’ve done better so next time you are aware of what you need to do.

With Kim's amazing help I went from someone who's feet were rattling the pedals with nerves, to passing my test first time. I cant recommend her more, she has an approachable and pleasant teaching style. I had tried a few other instructors before the pandemic, and once lessons started back I decided to change it up and go with Kim, it was the best decision I could have made. Her website has some excellent resources for progressing your driving and learning while not in the car too.
