Hi Paul – just a quick email to let you know I got my licence – first time! I really appreciate your time and patience…having lessons with you to improve my basic skills (especially when things got too tense with mum and dad!) was the best answer for all of us. You were able to quickly fill in the gaps of my knowledge/skills and provide me with some great defensive driving techniques. Thanks so much – I would happily recommend you and Skilltech to anyone.
