Just a couple things to remind my pupils of:

1. Payment is due before or on your lesson. I'm having to chase up a lot more of you on a weekly basis and I'd rather not be having to do that! Do you go get your hair or nails done or whatever else and forget to pay....doubt it. So please bear in mind I'd rather be doing other things than chasing folk up.

2. It's a 48 hour cancellation policy in place. There's a massive sticker on the dash for you all to see when starting with me. Some of you may think this is unfair but for me last minute cancellations are a drop in wage. Would you be happy getting ready for work or even turning up to be told your not needed and won't be getting paid....nah me either!!

Please don't take it personally if you know you are one of these people, I'm just trying to make my life a little easier 🀣 I've a wee demanding toddler at home who takes up all of my time outside of work so the easier I can make work life the better πŸ‘Œ

Thanks folks ❀️

A few wee questions for the drivers out there....

Would you pull put dangerously close in front of a police car??

Would you overtake a police car when they are sat at the speed limit?

Would you overtake a police car so you don't have to sit behind them?

Would you sit and beep your horn at a police car if they stalled?

Would you sit up their arse if you weren't happy they were a couple miles below the speed limit?

I'll answer all of these questions.....No!!! No you wouldn't!!! So why in earth is it okay to do it to learners? Or even just instructors when they are driving their own cars safely?

How about you all just calm down! Stop chancing it! Stop racing around everywhere! Think about whats going on around you! And stop thinking of a learner car as an inconvenience!

I very much know that occasionally we can be an inconvenience, however we all have to learn somewhere! And you sitting beeping your horn at us will not get us moving faster!

Just chill guys and we'll all get there!!! And safely is the main thing!!!

*Note to all "experienced" drivers!*

GONNA STOP PLAYING BEAT THE LEARNER!!!!!!!

It's ridiculous how many times people dangerously pull out in front of learners, or even just when im myself driving all so they don't get 'stuck behind a learner!'

I honestly use my brakes more to control the actions of said "experienced" drivers than I do my own learners!!!

You are setting an absolutely awful standard of driving for our learners!! And creating unrealistic expectations for learners to manage during the learning process!!

Please be mindful of us! We aren't actually that bad! And even when we are (which does occasionally happen) we are very sorry! We all have to learn sometime!!

We just want our freedom on the road too! And doing it safely is our top priority!!

Thanks 🚘❀️

Can you see that there is a child in both photos? Both in the exact same position, just different coloured jackets on!!!

As we come into winter and days are duller, even just a darker jacket can cause you to miss seeing someone at a crossing, near or even on the road! Be extra careful and make sure you do drive to conditions and that you are being more observant!!

That's my car all ready to take part in The Big Learner Relay for Children in Need this year πŸ™Œ covid seen it put on hold for a couple of years and now it's back and we can help raise money to go to Children in Need...so you can buy a spot on my car (wee spots are Β£3 and big are Β£5) or you can text a donation to the number in one of the photos 🀟
Buzzing for learners all over the UK to take part in The relay!! 😁

Heads up guys, I am on O2 and have had no signal since about Tuesday afternoon πŸ™ˆ I don't think I'm getting text messages but do get WhatsApps when I'm at home! I get absolutely nothing when I leave the house so keep that in mind if you're looking to get hold of me!!

01/08/2022

I'm getting ready for my return in a few weeks and already have a full diary to go back to with my existing pupils! I'm only working part time now round my wee Hadley πŸ₯° so to the people I have on my waiting list please bear with me while I find my feet again!! And also my waiting list is now closed to new pupils as I have plenty to contend with at the moment!!

There are a couple changes to lessons.....1 being the cancellation policy! Its now a 48 hour cancellation policy I'm putting in place. My time is now more important than ever and I'm not going to be walked all over on it. If I feel you are messing me about then you'll have to find someone else to teach you. May sound harsh but I have my own bills to pay and a wee baby to feed and look after now too!! Also there is a change to lesson prices, I have messaged everyone that was currently learning about the changes but not the people on my waiting list yet. If the price of petrol comes back down to a reasonable price then lesson prices would be revised!

Thanks guys, see you on the roads soon 🚘❀️

I'm very lucky that when I've asked pupils to move their tests back they have listened to reasons why and have agreed. Yes, I am well aware its gutting to be asked to move it back a bit to gain more confidence and knowledge on the roads before just 'having a go'!!

When your instructor asks you to move your test back it is NOT to scam you out of money. We are all upto our eyeballs with waiting lists at the moment that it's hard to keep up with it!! So we 100% do not not need to keep you with us to make our living!!

We do it because we know your not at a safe enough point to be on the road yourself even if you do manage to just scrape a pass!! You have to remember that you'll be alone out on the roads when you pass and that in itself can be a scary thing!! Can you correct even a simple stall fully independently with us even sat there? Do you think you'd be able to do it under pressure and with no one to help??

Being out on the road is a massive responsibility, you need to keep yourself safe and also everyone around you. And with everyone in such a rush these days it makes it so much more dangerous!!

If you really don't agree with our decision how about you ask for a mock test and see for yourself what the outcome could be when you have to do it all alone!!! Then maybe you'll understand where we are coming from instead of spitting the dummy and bad mouthing people on social media!!

We actually do have your best interests at heart! Listen to what your instructor has said, actually put in the work and then you'll get there!!

✌️🚘

Massive congratulations to Charlie Judd who passed his test last week on first attempt in his own car πŸ™ŒπŸš˜ we got to a nice place with his driving before I finished up for Mat leave and his parents took over to work on feeling more confident in everyday driving and look what happened!! Amazing work!! Super chuffed for you, go enjoy your freedom! Charlie got away for a holiday with his friends the day after his test so just getting round to getting a pic now, so all round a fab week for him πŸŽ‰πŸ™Œ

05/07/2022

Said no driving instructor ever 🀣🀣🀣

Note to my pupils that were already learning before I had my baby.....I'll be in touch nearer the end of this month to start arranging my diary as obviously I won't be back full time! Anyone on my waiting list please go easy on me while I try and organise my time between work and being a mummy!!

See yous fairly soon 🚘

😳😳😳OMG YOU CHARGE A CANCELLATION FEE 😳😳😳

How dare you!

How dare you charge a fee when you didn’t deliver the lesson!

Crazy right?

Actually, no.

Booking deposits, and cancellation fees are must in the Driving Lesson world.

And you know what?

THEY SHOULD BE.

Think of it like this…

Could you call British Airways after no showing for your flight and expect a refund?

No!

Could you imagine calling Virgin Atlantic and asking them for a seat on their Saturday 10:30am flight to Barbados, but you’ll pay when you get there?

No!

Could you imagine calling easyJet and telling them you can’t make the flight leaving in an hour but you’d like a seat for free on the flight an hour later?

No!

We work like a flight. Once the plane has gone, the seat has lost its money.

Same as your space.

Imagine arriving into work at the office and being told last minute that actually you weren’t needed for the next few hours.. but you will be unpaid through no fault of your own. Time you allocated to work to earn a living and you just have to take the pay cut without a choice!

When you work in a business where you trade time for money, time IS money.

So when people don’t want to pay for your time, and you put it on loan with no collateral, you risk losing that money.

Now, I know times are tough and odd and weird.

Costs are rising.

People are worried about money.

But we aren’t talking about booking vs not booking.

We are talking about booking space and paying for it vs not paying for it.

That’s very different.

Booking deposits and cancellation policies are in place to -

Protect the Instructors!
Reassure the client!
Make an agreement between two parties, official.

An agreement that says you’ll give your time, in exchange for money.

An instructor should never feel guilty for putting a Β£ sign on their time or product.

It’s what every single business has ever done in the entire history of time.

Except the ones that didn’t. And they didn’t last.

20/05/2022

My waiting list is now shut guys! I've got a few months off with my wee baby before I come back to work! And I do have a full diary to go back to so I'm no longer adding anyone to a waiting list! Too hard for me to keep track of with a new baby to focus on! Sorry to anyone looking to start with me! Good luck on your driving lessons though πŸ™ŒπŸš˜

10/05/2022

Today's pass goes to Jamie Young πŸš˜πŸŽ‰ Jamie was supposed to sit his test last month and they rearranged his test due to examiner absence and then my wee princess got in the way a little....so Jamie and his mum hired the Arnold Clark dual control car and look what happened...a lovely 1st time pass πŸš˜πŸ™Œ very well deserved!! I'm absolutely delighted for you!! 😁

09/05/2022

Which of my past pupils are guilty of this???? πŸ™ˆπŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£

03/05/2022

Massive congrats to Danielle for passing her driving test yesterday morning....she had the added stress of me last minute not being avaliable as my wee princess decided to make an early appearance into the world on Sunday night πŸ₯° so very well done for keeping it together and getting the job done!! And massive thank you to Ashley who moved her diary about and came and got my car to take her test for me ❀️
