If I could give 10 stars ⭐️ I would!
Patient, understanding, encouraging, calm, friendly, professional .. these are just some of Kath’s qualities.
At times I wondered if my son Spencer would manage driving lessons due to his high levels of anxiety, and then I met Kath Bools. Kath took the time to get to know him, to understand his needs and to consistently encourage and support him with his driving. And yes! You know it! He passed first time 😃 so, so proud of my son and his achievement, and words cannot express how grateful I am to Kath for giving him an amazing confidence boost and the skill of driving for life 💕
I knew her back in 2014 when I passed my driving first time. However, I needed her again now to bring my confidence back in driving after 3 years of not driving ( I have several reasons why I haven’t driven a car in those 3 years). But now, as a healthcare worker, a key worker who is due back to work after maternity, with 3 children and moved miles away from the hospital where I am working, I needed to get back into driving. Kath helped me to get back there, and would never again waste those skills.
I think one of the things that is important is that she appreciates the psychological side of driving as well as the practical side and manages to be rigorous and understanding at the same time – no mean feat. As well as the motorway driving – I’m now not terrified of slip roads – she helped me a lot with brushing up my driving generally and also with parking.
Really glad that I picked Kath and decided to have some lessons, and would definitely recommend her.
After some time I passed my test, we also had another reminder session for the motorway driving skills which was also very very useful.
I plan to have those from time to time because it is always good to keep up to date. So besides having lessons as a new driver, you can also have lessons as an experienced driver to sharpen your skills.
Thanks to Kath’s hard work and incredible support, I passed yesterday with 0 faults and I still can’t quite believe it. I am eternally grateful to Kath and Jo Folkes in general for helping me in my hour of need, and instilling in me the desire and ability to drive. If only all driving schools were like this, I’m pretty sure I’d have passed much sooner and with way less stress! Thank you so, so much.
Oh and I passed first time with only one minor – which at the start would’ve seemed unthinkable.
