[12/23/20]   Sadly from Boxing Day 2020. We will be closed due to being moved to tier 4.
I will be in contact with pupils and of course those who have tests in January and February.
I am unable at this time to give a return date and will update you all in due course.
I wish you all a safe Christmas ❀️ 03/11/2020

Update on lockdown measures in England

I’m sure most of you are already aware.
But once again Donnas driving school will have to refrain from lessons until early December 2020.
I will keep you updated should this period be extended 😞.
Take care everyone xx Following the announcement on Saturday 31 October 2020 around further lockdown measures being introduced in England, we are working closely with the Government to agree the impact these will have on DVSA services.

[06/29/20]   Donnas driving school will be returning to teaching on Monday July 20th.
For the first initial weeks it will be a phased in process of lessons and this will start with pupils who did not have a test booked prior to lockdown.
Pupils who did have tests booked and whom I have already spoken with will
At some point in the near future will be asked to rebook their tests for on or after the 22nd of July.
Once each of you have been able to rebook we will then get you back in the car.

The new normal

I’m sure you can all
appreciate things will be somewhat different for some time to come.
And on that note there will be changes in the car .
The car will be sanitised prior to you getting in. ( most of you know I was already doing this up to the point we had to stop working ).I will ask you to use hand sanitiser before you enter the car. I will provide this if you don’t have any on you at the time.

Masks/face coverings.

Now we know that this can be controversial.
However we are in a close proximity of under 1 metre. And of course we can not adhere to the government guidance inside the car.
I will wear a face covering and would ask you to do the same. However anyone with a respiratory illness would of course not be asked to wear one. If you can bring your own i would appreciate it. I have disposable face masks as back up if you forget.


Windows will be open front and back, in bad weather just the back windows so we have plenty of good ventilation. Air conditioning has been advised not to be used .


We will probably take regular breaks so we can discuss outside the car in the fresh air anything we need to cover relating to your lesson.

Reasons to cancel (covid 19)
If at any time you have any of the government stated symptoms please inform me immediately. Likewise I will contact you.
We all understand the nature of track and trace and to then self isolate if we have been in contact with someone who has covid 19. And with this in mind there may well be times I am unable to work due to the 14 day isolation period.
Looking forward to seeing you all soon


Well we are now in June. Hoping you all are are coping ok during this surreal and horrendous time. Thinking of anyone who has lost someone or even impacted by someone having covid 19. 😞
Sadly I don’t have too much to tell you all. I have kept in contact with my current pupils by messaging.
But we still do not have a definite date or even month when we can go back to teaching. Driving instructors seem to be pretty much at the bottom of the pile due to our close proximity of being in the car together.
As soon as instructors get a definitive thumps up to get back out I will inform you all.
Here is a snippet of our latest update .
To my pupils who have tests booked I will message you this week to talk about your current date of your test and going forward .
Take care everyone x

Wishing all my past and present pupils are wonderful Christmas and a great 2019.

[11/15/18]   Lovely Tabby who passed her test last Friday. (Doesn’t have Facebook )
She has written a review and sent it to me for me to share with you all.

Wow wow wow, what can I say. Donna is the most caring, attentive, knowledgable and fun driving instructor you could ever wish for. The confidence she has given me has helped me so much with my driving and shows in the way I drive. I never really enjoyed learning to drive but with Donna, I couldn’t wait to get on the road because being taught by her was amazing. She is a great listener and she thinks of alternatives to suit your style of learning if things don’t work the first time. I especially loved her little post it notes that she made for me to remember to put in my car, β€˜clutch up’ worked a treat! Every lesson was an enjoyment, we had such fun! I would highly highly highly recommend Donna if you want to be taught to drive well and to enjoy the experience. She turned me into a safer, more observant, confident driver than I was before I started with her. Even after driving lessons she was always there if you had any questions throughout the week. If I didn’t have Donna, I wouldn’t have passed first time! She is amazing.


Oh yes the podium was smoking today.
Amazing Tabby Vincent.
First time pass In Winchester today and just two minors. Complimented by the examiner and what a good driver you are and your great awareness.
You remind me of my younger self. We had such great laughs.
