"I have had 3 attempts at driving over the past 20 years in the UK before moving to New Zealand 4 years ago. After somewhere in the region of 100 lessons, I had no confidence, failed a test and decided I would never be able to drive.
Recently I decided to have one last go at getting my licence.
I began driving lessons with Denise Young four months ago. I have had 40 lessons to date. I was extremely nervous to begin with and I knew it would take me a long time to learn. Over this time Denise showed faith in me when I had none and was very understanding of my situation.
With her help and encouragement and her everlasting patience, my confidence began to grow. It has grown to the point where I have just bought my first car and now I am looking foward to taking my test in February next year, something I never thought would happen!"
Thank you for all the driving lessons!! You have taught me so much. I will remember this for life.
I am very grateful for everything you have done and for putting up with me for so long.
Without all your help I would never have been able to drive. You are the best! Once again, thank you Michael."
"Hi Michael, you might remember me, I had driving lessons with you in Levin. i just thought to let you know that I went for my restricted licence at the end of last month and passed. :)
I just wanted to say thank you as well, for those lessons, because they really did help me a lot in feeling more confident with my driving skills."
"To Denise & Michael
Firstly I would like to thank you Denise for getting me started with Drive Rite. I have called so many driving agencies to get quotes etc for driving lessons such as (name removed) and (name removed) and was shocked by peoples' blunt attitude and lack of interest in answering any questions I had.
When I finally got onto calling you, you were just awesome.You not only took the time to get to know my needs and fears of driving but encouraged me and gave me plenty of useful information over the phone to get me to take the 1st step towards driving.
And Michael, you were fantastic towards me on my first ever lesson since ages. You helped me move away from being a phobic driver to one who is more calmer (sic) and confident on the road. Something I thought was IMPOSSIBLE!
So anyone who's reading this wondering if this driving school is right for you, I would highly recommend Michael and Denise over (name removed) or (name removed) driving schools. Michael is the most patient and attentive instructor you can get, he boosts your confidence up in no time and he has moved me from being a phobic learner to one who has got her restricted in just 6 weeks' time. He helped me reach my goal in the limited time I had to get my restricted.
So once again thank you both for all you have done for me. Your services are much appreciated."
