Driving Test Success


One of the reasons my pupils enjoy their driving lessons so much is due to my ability to build their confidence while focusing on reaching the high standards set by the DVSA and by giving lots of encouragement and advice.

The ultimate goal is to help my pupils pass driving tests first time and have a very safe, successful and enjoyable driving experience throughout their life.

“Sandi was a great driving teacher. She consistently found time for lessons for me, so that I could progress from being a six years out-of-practice learner to a qualified driver in a short time.

After her help and some independent practice, I now feel like a skilled and safe driver. Importantly, she is a nice person to spend many hours driving with and talking to too!”

I would highly recommend Sandi’s driving school to anyone wanting to learn to drive!"

Passed on the first attempt and many thanks to Sandi and her lessons"

Lilia - June 2021, passed 1st time in her BMW at Yeovil DTC


"Fantastic Lessons! The mock tests helped to identify areas that I needed to work on and the flexibility of the lessons allowed me to then improve on these areas (in my own car). The best bit of all was being guided through the real reason behind the why you do certain things on the road and so I could easily apply what I had learnt to any situation I may come across. So when it came to the test, nothing fazed me as there was nothing new neither the atmosphere of being in the test due to having practiced such, or the actual driving and manoeuvres"
