Donna’s School of Motoring Driving lessons based in Gislingham, Suffolk and covering Diss, Norwich, Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds
Cassii: Donna is an absolutely fantastic driving instructor, so patient and understanding. I have dyspraxia and always knew it would be a challenging task learning to drive but she would always try to understand how I was viewing things so she could help me improve. She went up and beyond what I expected from her, I cannot recommend her enough!! Catrin: I would highly recommend Donna, she made me believe I could pass and I did first time! I honestly cannot thank her enough for all the time and effort she has put into me to make me believe I could pass and helping me build up my confidence since I was a nervous wreck! She will push you to achieve anything you are unsure about but also talk you through it so you understand exactly how to do it and even if you do make a mistake she talks you through what you did wrong and how to correct it. Thank you so much!! Harry: Donna was an absolutely amazing instructor. She was very patient and adapted her way of teaching to help me to understand something if I was struggling. She responds very quickly to texts and any queries about lesson times, including letting you know if there is any change or delay so you’re not wondering where she is, which is very useful. Overall, a fantastic instructor and person and would 100% recommend anyone wanting to learn to drive to contact Donna. George: Very good teacher and very understanding. Taught me the best way possible and now I’m very confident on the roads. Highly recommend to all people looking to pass quickly. Jasmine: Donna has a thorough, detailed approach to her work that is especially helpful to anyone who particularly struggles with driving and feels they need an explanatory approach in order to understand the rules and apply them correctly. She is meticulous in analysing situations as they unfold on the road and will leave no stone unturned in making sure you understand exactly what you should do, when and why. Driving took me longer than I had anticipated, but thanks to Donna's positivity and encouragement I have now passed. She is someone who takes personal pride in helping her students succeed, and her consistency and admirable patience means that - no matter how much you may struggle - she never gives up, nor allows you to give up on yourself. Thank you Donna! Chloe: I found driving very difficult in the beginning (to me there felt like a thousand things I had to do and remember), but with Donna's constant support I was able to feel comfortable and happy behind the wheel. It really is true that she teaches you to drive for life; and I would honestly recommend her to anybody. Thank you Donna, you are fabulous!!! Emily: Just passed with Donna first time! Although I struggled a lot with driving and holding concentration, Donna was there for me continuously boosting my confidence and supporting me. She has provided me now with a wide range of skills I need for life to drive safely and become a confident driver. Would recommend Donna to anyone, she's friendly and a brilliant trustworthy instructor. Will miss her lessons! Abbie: It took me quite a few hours to get up to test standard but Donna was extremely patient and she was able to help me by finding out the best ways in which I learn. It was so benificial to learn how to drive with Donna and she has made me feel confident with both my knowledge and practical skills, I have gained valuable experience and I would undoubtably recommend her to anyone who wants to learn how to drive! C. Nugent: Learning to drive with Donna was great, she really understood me. Not only did she teach me to pass my driving test but she taught me for life. I feel really confident driving and I would recommend Donna to anyone. Tazzie: Learning to drive with Donna has not just been about passing the practical, but about learning how to drive for life. She really understood me and how to get the best from me, structuring my lessons to develop all of the skills I needed for driving, and I always felt I was making progress. She is a fabulous teacher who has coached me to success and I would definitely recommend learning to drive with her. Thank you Donna! Cecily: Donna is a great instructor - she is incredibly friendly and chatty which really put me at ease when driving. She not only helps you to pass your test but also teaches you to drive for life, meaning I now have the confidence to take on the roads by myself. I was very nervous and anxious to start with but Donna was so patient and kind through it all, working at my level the whole time. Donna is genuinely a lovely instructor and I would thoroughly recommend! Lisamarie: Donna is very patient and an excellent teacher. She gave me all the tools and confidence needed to be a driver for life. Tobin: There's thousands of driving instructors roaming around God’s green earth, I had one and failed a test and then moved on to Donna and couldn't have been happier. She'll teach you, coach and push you all at the same time and it's a lot to take in. However I know I wouldn't have passed my test with another motoring school. She's got the knowledge and the practice to bring your driving skills from 0 to a million. Whether you’re a fresh driver who's never even sat in the right hand seat of a car or you’re a semi-experienced test failer like I was before Donna then this instructor here is who you’re looking for. I mean, sure you could go to chilled or chillax or flying colours or anyone who pops up on your Google search while you hunt for the best one. But if you’re looking to ACTUALLY develop real driving skills and learn how to drive safely instead of just learning about how to tick boxes on a test examiner’s sheet then this is the motoring school you've been struggling to find. You see the 5 stars, they’re not there for no reason. Couldn't have thanked Donna enough, she's got the care, the drive, the enthusiasm and know how to make you the driver you’re aching to be. Yasmin: Donna is a committed and friendly person, she will push you to reach your full potential and prepare you for life ahead as a driver. I personally came across plenty of struggles, for instance with observations and awareness whilst learning but Donna stood by me, pushing me to reach my goals. Resulting in me passing my test first time with only one fault and praise on my observation and awareness! You can count on having a laugh during your lessons whilst getting things done. Thank you so much Donna, I truly appreciate it, have a wonderful life!
Ethan: A very experienced and helpful driving instructor that encourages you to do your best with a firm but fair attitude towards the learner, which I feel was the best way of learning to drive. Definitely worth the money I have invested in these lessons. Alex: Donna was a great driving instructor who helped me by adapting to my learning style. I also learnt a lot about myself through the lessons. Thanks Donna for being so good through my learning and an all-round lovely person! Callum: Donna was a fantastic driving instructor, she was very patient and would adapt lessons to suit me, she was very calm and reassuring on my test day, I would thoroughly recommend Donna, I can’t thank her enough. Sophie: A great driving instructor! I began driving by doing an intensive course (not with Donna) which didn’t work for me. After this I came to Donna where I realised there was so much more for me to learn! Although I struggled in some areas, Donna was excellent and had many techniques which helped me overcome these bad habits and succeed with my driving. I recently passed my test with just three minors. Thank you Donna. Matthew: Donna was my first driving instructor and we got on right from the first lesson. When things didn’t go quite to plan Donna took the time to explain what was needed in getting things better. She has the patience to guide you to become a safe and confident driver. On my test day I was very nervous and Donna was happy to ride in the vehicle with me during the test and even though I had a last minute change of car the day before the test I still passed with one minor. I can not thank you enough Donna and will recommend you to anyone looking for a driving instructor in the future. Stacey: If everyone had Donna as their driving instructor then the roads would be a much safer place! She puts you in the right frame of mind so that you become a safe and sensible driver. She has built up my confidence and the improvement that I have made with her in the past few weeks has been tremendous. She is very friendly and trustworthy. A brilliant instructor who teaches you to drive for life, not just for test. I would strongly recommend Donna to every single person I know who wants to learn to drive. Lucy: Donna is the most professional, patient and amazing instructor around. She puts all her time and effort into what she does to make sure you are a safe and confident driver, her aim isn't to just prepare you for your driving test, she prepares you for the world of driving for the rest of your life and makes sure you can deal with any situation given to you. I would recommend Donna to anyone and everyone looking for an instructor! Luke: I couldn't recommend Donna more! She is so reliable, friendly and professional! Donna doesn't just teach you to pass your test she teaches you for life! She will also find the best way of teaching you as an individual to benefit you and make you a more confident and comfortable driver. I personally will recommend Donna to anyone learning to drive, thanks Donna! Harry: Donna is a fantastic driving instructor and will ensure that you get the overall achievement. Although doing an intensive course was very hard, she has taught me how to drive for life, not just learning the test routes. Can't recommend enough! Thank you Donna, couldn't have done it without you! Maddie: Before starting my lessons with donna I was really struggling with my driving, she gave me the confidence I needed. She is really friendly and changes her technique of teaching to suit you. No matter how much I struggled she never gave up and she kept me strong! She always made sure she fitted me in when ever I needed and it worked really well around my job. Donna made sure she was always punctual for my driving lessons. I highly recomend her for your own driving lessons, friends or your children.   Dan: Extremely good instructor - professional, patient and friendly. Donna teaches you to drive not just for the test but for life. Highly recommended instructor. Sarah S: I enjoyed my lessons and felt comfortable around Donna which helped me feel relaxed on my lessons and test. She is an amazing instructor with lots of knowledge to support you. No matter how much you struggle she will never give up on you. Nicola: Brilliant teacher who was patient and nurtured you through learning to drive well! Donna makes sure that you are safe when driving and that you learn the skills needed and feel confident to drive by yourself when you pass. Lovely and kind person and would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn! Therix: While I was learning to drive, I heard stories from my friends about their instructors, being too harsh or not helping them progress, and I found that with Donna I encountered none of their qualms and misgivings. While learning with her I found she was an instructor who was incredibly versatile as was necessary between students, working to suit the way I needed teaching when it differed from other people she'd taught. She endeavoured to vary the directions we took while learning so I wouldn't fall into the trap of learning by route, and on top of teaching progressively, provided stimulating conversation to make everything feel more relaxed so I, as an Aspergers case, would take in the information more readily. All in all worth the time and money, and I would definitely recommend her to anyone learning to drive. Sarah: Donna is an amazing driving instructor who is very patient and supportive. Whenever I was struggling with anything she worked with me to find ways to help me through. She is very friendly and would recommend her to anyone. Thank you Donna for helping me past my test! Isabel: Learning to drive with Donna was the best way to learn, always putting me at ease and making me feel comfortable and knowledgeable with what I was doing. I would recommend Donna to anyone, as she is very caring and passionate about what she does. Tori: I went with Donna not knowing much about driving and have now passed my test. I definitely could not have done it without her help. I enjoyed my lessons and felt comfortable around Donna which helped me feel relaxed on my lessons and test. She was flexible when it came to the way she taught me and changed things depending upon how I learnt best and what I was comfortable with. I would recommend her to anyone. Thank you Donna for teaching me how to drive!
