5 out of 5
Overall I would rate Janet a 5 as an instructor, I felt very safe being in the car with her as I knew she was always ready to take action if necessary if a situation presented itself. I enjoyed the client based approach as it made me feel like I could do things the way in which I wanted, I think this is really important as a learner because it makes you feel much more comfortable when learning something for the first time. I enjoyed driving Janet’s car. I believe that it is a perfect size for a first car to learn to drive in because its not too small and not too big. The car was always very clean whenever I got in. . The car was very comfortable and very smooth to drive, being a 1.4 meant that you could accelerate easily away from junctions but still feel in control. I would definitely recommend the two week intensive course. Thank you Janet for helping me to pass my test.
Janet was a fantastic teacher, very thorough and patient, explaining manoeuvres in an easy and understanding manner. The LD system was great, the DVD and book were very useful in between lessons to recap and then to learn about and prepare for the next lesson. I felt I progressed with every lesson and all were of a very high standard. Janet's teaching manner gave me great confidence in my ability and made learning to drive a positive and friendly experience. She taught me to drive safely and considerately. Janet's car was a lovely vehicle to drive; comfortable, secure and always clean and tidy. I would highly recommend Janet as an instructor to anyone wanting to learn to drive in Midhurst and the surrounding areas.
A 5 Star Instructor
Janet was a 5 star instructor. She was patient, calm and always explained everything very clearly. The LD system worked brilliantly for me and was a useful tool in motivating me to study and then practice. I enjoyed learning to drive with Janet and was thrilled to pass first time, only 3 months after my 17th birthday. Her car was easy to drive and always felt safe and secure. I would highly recommend Janet and her relaxed and professional approach to teaching was second to none. Thank you Janet.
An easy going but focused Driving Instructor
I would definitely recommend Janet to anyone who is looking for an easy going but focused driving instructor. I looked forward to lessons because I knew Janet would help me stay relaxed and I wouldn't have the stress of learning to drive. The 'Client Centred Approach' allowed me to improve my confidence as a driver as I could easily try stuff for myself and then improve on it afterwards. This made the manoeuvres much easier to handle because sometimes the 'text book' way of doing it may not work perfectly for you. The car was comfortable and very easy to drive and has a reversing camera which makes some manoeuvres a lot easier. Overall I am very happy we chose Janet.
Learning to drive was comfortable and enjoyable.
As an instructor you were very patient and helpful, giving me (learner) a say in what I would like to do and practise. This made learning how to drive more comfortable and enjoyable. The Workbook and DVD was helpful to recap what was learnt in the lesson as well as preparing for the next lesson, which helps you learn faster and gain more confidence. I felt I had a lot of the control of what we did in our lessons which allowed me to work on what I felt was needed, as well as Janet's input to what we should do and progress to. The car was always clean and tidy, the car itself is a very good car to learn in as it is a good size. It also is very smooth and generally very comfortable.
I can not recommend 'Pass with Janet' highly enough. She made learning to drive a really relaxed and enjoyable experience for me. Over the years I have had quite a few driving instructors but never managed to pass the test, but as soon as I met Janet during the introductory home visit, I knew this time it was going to be different. At first I was quiet nervous, but her patient, relaxed and friendly teaching approach immediately put me at ease and she quickly built my confidence and driving skills.
The LDC 'client centred approach' was perfect for me. It meant that the content of each lesson was individually tailored to help me achieve my goals. Janet encouraged me to 'just have a go ' and find systems and methods of driving that worked for me and didn't just follow a set script. This kind of individuality and flexibility was ideal when learning manoeuvres, something I had struggled with in the past. Also, having the DVD and work book at home was brilliant, as it allowed me to prepare for each lesson. This ultimately saved me money because we could spend more lesson time driving and less time having to go over the theory.
The car Janet uses is perfectly suited to a learner driver, very comfortable and was always immaculate. Overall, I feel that my lessons with Janet have provided me with the skills and confidence to be a competent and safe driver. She is knowledgeable, patient, friendly and overall a great teacher. I strongly recommend you give her a try. 5 Stars!
A Fantastic Driving Instructor
Choosing to learn to drive with Janet was the best decision I could have made for my driving. From the first phone call right up to my test she kept me calm and relaxed. In every lesson Janet encouraged me and her focus was never on what I was doing wrong but what I was doing right which not only improved my driving but my confidence in my ability as well. She is an outstanding teacher. I enjoyed driving the car, it was the perfect size to learn in. One of the greatest things about Janet's teaching was the LD system of learning. It suited me perfectly, knowing exactly what I was doing each lesson and being able to use the book and DVD before I did each manoeuvre in particular was really helpful as the theoretical understanding it gave me made each lesson a lot easier. Janet really is a fantastic driving instructor and I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn to drive!
