Hey Carmen,

You might remember me from a few months ago when I wrote in with some questions. I just wanted to let you know that your answers and website and videos were so helpful to me. When I started taking lessons, my instructor was impressed with how well-prepared I was and kept commenting that I knew things other people never come in knowing — I became his favorite student, haha.

Today I took my road test and passed with a just a couple minor errors due to nerves! I am generally the nervous sort so I knew that was going to be a problem, but knowing I had the information and skills I needed made all the difference; I was able to correct things and keep going without any difficulty.

Thank you again for offering your knowledge to people online and taking the time to help me out; I really appreciate it. Now I can go out on my own and know that I’m driving safely and able to handle different situations well!

Hi there , I passed my road test today :) I am sure without your blog I couldn’t feel confident and prepped. Was great trips… Thank you so much xxxx :)


I just passed my driver’s test today and your website has been instrumental in my success today. I failed the first time and then found your website and the videos and posts are so helpful that I never had to take driving classes which are pretty unaffordable for me right now. Thanks again and keep up the awesome work you do. 

Thanks again


Hi Carmen,

You probably don’t remember me but I just wanted to thank you personally for all your help and the information you have on your website. It has all been tremendously helpful. I passed my second road test today and I feel like I’m over the moon. I hope you have a great summer!



Hi Carmen,

I just wanted to give you a personal thank you for the awesome blog you have created for us novice and newly-minted drivers. 

I had put off getting rid of my N for six months and suddenly found myself needing to book and pass a road test like yesterday. 

I was able to book the next day and passed.

I am grateful for the comprehensive, yet, easy to follow, guide and videos you have shared and will definitely recommend your blog to everyone I know. 

Thank you so much!

When you become a driving instructor at the age of 20-something you end up teaching a few of your friends how to drive also.
