6 Month refresher lesson£free!
- Following successful completion of the driving test, I will offer a complimentary lesson - either a motorway driving lesson or a refresher lesson 6 months after passing the test to make sure that you still drive to a high standard. Driving Instructors will tell you that they don't just teach people to pass a test, they teach people 'safe driving for life' if that is the case then why do people still crash? It's all to do with attitude after passing the test so I'm offering ongoing support post driving test.
