Ashleigh Currie

What can I say about Terry Hughes? He is absolutely amazing at what he does. His knowledge and experience is second to none. From the way he uses exactly the same phrases as the examiners so you get used to the way things are asked, to his expansive knowledge of all the test routes. He invests so much time in to each pupil and genuinely cares if they pass. He has been amazing with me and so patient, yet pushed me when I needed to be pushed. It was a long time coming for me to get completely confident with my driving but Terry didn’t rush me. He learnt my way of learning (and about my poor sense of direction!!) and used that to explain things so I would understand. I would not have got through it without him! All the tears, laughter and a lot of good conversations were had on my lessons and I wouldn’t of had it any other way. I’ll miss our lessons but will be popping over for a coffee and a catch up and to show off my new car when I get it! Thank You Terry, from the bottom of my heart you’ve given me the freedom I needed x
