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 is a patient and helpful driving instructor who helped build my confidence from being very nervous behind the wheel to passing my driving test first time, she is very knowledgeable about what she teaches and helped me feel confident and secure in my driving abilities, she gives very helpful feedback at the end of each lesson to help you progress and develop your skills which I found extremely helpful and was able to work on in my out of lesson practice,
I would highly recommend Sandi’s driving school to anyone wanting to learn to drive!"
Alice S - April 22, passed her driving test 1st time at Yeovil DTC
"Sandi was a great and patient instructor helping me relearn all of the different skills and observations needed to pass here in the UK.

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"
