Thank you again Libby!  Charley Ridgers passed her test on Thurs 23rd April 
E-mail : Comment: Libby has been an amazing instructor. she is patient, kind 
and easy to get along with. I was so nervous before my first lesson, but Libby 
made me feel safe and with time my confidence grew. she Is very clear when 
giving instructions and helps you as much as she possibly can. I have really enjoyed
learning to drive with Libby, and don't think I could have passed without her. I 
would strongly recommend her to everybody and would also like to say a big thank
 you for everything!

I'm so grateful to have found Libby! She has been an absolutely fantastic teacher 
and I would strongly recommend her. I had had several different instructors in the 
Isleworth-area prior to starting with Libby, and my confidence in driving was really 
low. Not only was she easy to get along with and a great instructor, but she also 
made me feel comfortable and confident in the car and I don't think I would have 
passed my test without her

I have long nursed a dream of going on a road trip in a camper van. The only 
problem with fulfilling that dream was the lack of a driving license. So after 
a search online for a female instructor in my local area I found 
Libby Driving School. 

Libby is a great driving instructor whose calm and patient manner instills 
confidence as well as skills. I am sure it has been a challenge for Libby to 
teach this mature and overly cautious learner driver but we kept at it. 

With Libby's superb teaching skills and encouragement our work together has 
resulted in a pass, today. Yeah! Road trip here I come! Thanks Libby. 
You are a saint!
Emily Berry who passed her test on Thurs 12th Feb @ Isleworth  


Libby was a brilliant and friendly instructor and I will miss her very much. A very 
patient and methodical teacher covering all aspects of driving carefully and 
thoroughly. I sometimes lacked confidence but Libby was always stayed calm and 
gave me the support I needed. She got me through my test first time round and I'm
 over the moon she was there to support me through one of life's great achievements. 
Thank you
 Libby!

instructor; extremely patient, explained everything thoroughly,  and created 
relaxed and comfortable environment in which I could  develop my skills and 
eventually become a successful driver.

I would 100% recommend Libby, anyone who is taught by her is truly lucky!
Will Ewing who passed his test on Thurs 5th Feb.  

Hi Libby,
 
This is my testimonial/review below:
 
Learning the life skill of driving with Libby was great. Every lesson she was patient,
informative and skilled to help me to quickly. You always know you are learning relevant
skills and information when she is teaching you. I cannot recommend her highly enough
and i doubt i would have passed without her expertise and guidance. rest assured she
is a fantastic instructor and is determined to help anyone pass there driving test.
 
Once again I would like to thank you for being so helpful and patient with me.
Kind Regards,
Will Ewing

Libby was recommended to me by a friend and I'm so pleased I decided to take 
lessons with her. She made me feel confident and assured on the road, which is 
exactly what you need. I know that it's mainly down to Libby that I passed first time.
 From the bottom of my heart I'm actually going to miss having lessons with her! 
Thank you so much Libby

  1. I know many people who have used or are using Libby as a driving instructor and really enjoy her teaching. She makes sure you are very confident in the areas you are covering before moving on so as to make sure that she is going at the right pace for you. I found her teaching very clear and calm, making me feel very comfortable and in safe hands. With Libby I was able to pass first time and afterwards, my driving examiner even said that he recognised her and thought that she was a great teacher. I would highly recommend anyone to get lessons with Libby!
    Thank you so much!

    I have just passed my practical test yesterday after having my driving classes with Libby and I could not thank her enough for being so patient and so supportive. Libby is an experience driving instructor and her calm and collective approach will definitely prepare you from the best way to drive properly. I would certainly recommend Libby to everyone !!

      Thankyou Judy for your kind words.. I was very happy to have taught you how to drive to the highest standards.. I wish you “Safe Driving for Life”

  3. Marcia Boot says:

    Over the past five years I had four different professional instructors (male and female), but Libby was by far the most patient, reliable and dedicated. I am 44 and I was in a rush to pass the test, I had booked the test even before I met her and hadn’t had lessons for a year! She convinced me and advised me that she would prepare me to be ready for the test and she did! I passed on 6th of January. I feel very lucky to have met Libby, I’d highly recommend her!

  4. Sarah says:

    Libby is an extremely calm and patient instructor. I don’t have the greatest special awareness or knowledge of my left to my right but Libby helped me to overcome this and be more aware. I passed first time & shes extremely good value for money. I would highly recommend her services!

  5. Adele says:

    I have recently passed my driving test (18th March) first time,all thanks to Libby!.
    I was very nervous to get back into driving after having a bad experience with a previous instructor, from a big driving school. When I eventually thought about getting back into it. I came across Libby’s site (I did do loads of research) but everyone had positive feedback, so I got in contact with her! Libby was very welcoming and friendly over email, and made everything clear and easy. It was the best decision I made. She is an exceptional driving instructor who is very calm, and easy going. She doesn’t rush you,she just makes sure you are confident with everything. I would highly recommend Libby to anyway and everyone (I already have). So get in contact with her and you will be a happy confident driver in no time!

      Adele Thankyou so much for your kind review. We worked together as a team & we got the right result on the day. Your driving is of a high standard which showed up on your lessons & became apparent on the day of the test. I wish you well in finding the right car for yourself & “Safe driving for life”.
      Hope to see you out on the roads in the very near future.
      Kind Regards.
      Libby.

    I passed first time, thanks to libby! I enjoyed her teaching as she ensured i felt comfortable and confident with what i was doing and was very good at keeping things at my own pace. Shes very committed to ensuring her students are ready for their test and makes sure that the test area is well practised.
    I would highly recommend taking lessons with Libby as both my sisters and numerous friends have.
    Thank you so much!

  7. Matt Smith says:

    I would more than happily recommend Libby to anyone who was thinking of learning to drive. At first the though of driving on the road made me nervous.
    But after the first lesson, Libby’s calm and patient manner gave me confidence.
    I was taught well as I managed to pass first time with very few faults.
    Libby is incredibly friendly and easy to get along with.
    I am going to miss our Saturday drives together.

  8. Adele says:

    Thankyou so much for all your help Libby, and for being so patient and so hard working. Highly recommend to anyone who wants to start driving!!

  9. Abi says:

    Libby is a very patient and helpful driving instructor. She helped me build my confidence and was always positive during our lessons. Thanks Libby!

    Hello.

    I passed my test on 23rd May on the fourth attempt.

    Having had three other driving instructors, I am able to compare Libby with them.

    Firstly I found Libby very professional but also excellent at building a rapport which made me less nervous. The added benefit of the rapport is that I found it easier to take the feedback.

    Libby was perhaps stronger on the technical side than my other instructors (including the AA Driving School). She noticed that I was coasting and explained to me what ‘coasting’ is, why I shouldn’t do it and the effect it was having in terms on control at junctions especially, then helped me work on it.

    Prior to the lesson that she identified the coaching, Libby had been through all my notes from my other driving tests and explained where I was deficient (areas of weakness that were present in two or more test feedback notes).

    So, Libby diagnosed the areas that needed improvement, gave me feedback and tips on those areas and made sure that I knew what I needed to do and was confident for my test.

    Thank you Libby. I was really losing hope before these lessons.

    Libby was an incredible driving instructor and I count myself very lucky to have been taught by her. She was firstly always very patient and also when it came to teaching new things the method would always be very well thought out and easy to remember. I’d recommend her to everyone.

    Thanks so much Libby!

  12. Saskia Marr says:

    Thank you so much Libby for all your hardwork you put into me and helping me get threw to passing my test! Im so greatful for what you have done for me! Thank you so so much Libby

  13. Angela says:

    Libby is a great driving instructor. She is friendly and patient. Libby helped me to gain the confidence and skills needed for driving. She gives clear instructions which are easy to understand. The feedback at the end of each lesson is also really helpful. I would highly recommend Libby. Thank you Libby.

  14. James Prance says:

    It worked very well with Libby. She is a very thorough and conscientious instructor. She keeps a record of each lesson so she can help you next time with your weaker points like a true professional. She is friendly and very easy to get on with. Highly recommended. Thanks for helping me pass first time.

  15. Samet Oktay says:

    Libby, thank you soo much for being very patient with my driving. Everything worked really well since I’ve been taking lessons with Libby. She is very kind and friendly. She also travels to Turkey, so we always have something in common to talk about during our lessons. She keeps a record of each lesson with all of your strenghts and weaknesses and often goes through those points at the beggining of your next lesson, making you aware of the things you have to watch out whilst driving. Highly recommended. Thank you for everything.

  16. Amber says:

    Libby is an amazing driving instructor, who I would gladly recommend to other learners. I was very nervous about learning to drive, but Libby gave clear instructions and adapted to my own pace. She was always calm and patient, and her friendly rapport helped to build my confidence when driving. She was professional and thorough, taking notes and reflecting on the areas I needed to improve on. Every lesson was valuable as she taught me how to drive safely in everyday situations on the road. I passed my test first time with no faults and it is all because of Libby’s extraordinary teaching skills. Thank you so much Libby, it feels strange now driving without you!

  17. Francesca Mullan says:

    Thank you so much Libby for being my instructor! Luckily I managed to pass first time and clearly all your knowledge and help paid off. Lessons were never hard work and I was constantly learning. Every aspect of driving was covered and I felt confident and ready when test day arrived. Libby is a friendly, calm & patient instructor and I am very glad I found her!

  18. Lydia Desouza says:

    I am so glad that I had the pleasure of meeting and learning with Libby. I had previously had a bad experience with an instructor from a major driving school which had put me off learning to drive for a few years, then a friend recommended Libby and I’m so glad I got in to contact with her! I passed first time with Libby, and it was all down to her ability to pick up on my learning style and adjust her teaching style, which made a huge difference to my confidence and knowledge! She was always relaxed, patient and very easy to talk to. Libby is an excellent instructor and I cannot recommend her enough! Thank you so much Libby!

  19. Naomi says:

    Libby is a fantastic driving instructor and we’ve been on a long journey together. I’m a busy working mum and had my second child whilst learning to drive. Libby was patient, thorough and encouraging. She takes her job very seriously but with a smile. I recently passed my test and feel so proud. I asked Libby at the start to help me become a confident driver which I now feel I am, thanks to Libby. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough. Thank you Libby! Naomi

  20. Tony Lane says:

    Hi Libby, here is my review – I wasn’t sure of the best way to get it to you…hope that’s ok. 🙂

    Learning to drive with Libby was a relaxed and comfortable experience. She was very thorough and ensured I understood the basics so the more advanced areas of driving didn’t seem so daunting. My confidence grew very quickly and the pace of the lessons was just right. Libby is a very kind and calming instructor to be driving with and gave me all the support I needed to pass first time. I would recommend Libby to all learner drivers regardless of experience or disposition. Thank you.

    Libby is amazing!! Was so lovely to learn with her. Lessons were fun and relaxed. Can’t thank you enough Libby for all you’ve done. Anyone who’s learning to drive should give Libby a call!

  22. Will Sainsbury says:

    I found out about Libby through a friend and was eager to obtain my full license in a relatively short time frame before I went to University. Libby was great from the start – very patient and calm but also pushing me to tackle new things when she felt I was ready. I got a lot of feedback about my driving and found talking about how each lesson went at the end was very beneficial, as I received straightforward, concise advice on how to better each aspect of my driving. I ended up taking my test much sooner than I initially thought I would have and passed first time. Thanks again Libby!

  23. Billy says:

    I have spent the past couple of months driving with Libby and recently passed first time. I was with multiple instructors before but finally settled with Libby. She is patient and clear throughout lessons and finds a good mix to ensure lessons are challenging whilst keeping you confident. I cannot recommend her enough. Thank you for all your help Libby.
