From: Biola - Dartford

When I first got into the car, my nerves shot up the roof. But with humour, conversations to make me feel more comfortable and gentle introduction to the lesson of the day, you helped me to become more confident.

I didn't feel like I had to impress you because you didn't make me feel like I needed to. From the start of the class to the finish, I felt like you were on my team. Thank you

Thank you so much for today's lesson. I truly felt comfortable asking questions, even ones that might have seemed silly.

Despite it being my first session with you, I felt incredibly relaxed behind the wheel.

I'm glad I chose to book with you; your upbeat personality and understanding nature made all the difference. I'm eagerly anticipating our next lesson!

Thank you ☺

Simmone is a great teacher for a nervous learner.

She has infectious positive energy and put me at ease with encouragement, reassurance, and a little gentle teasing!

Before my first lesson, I was terrified about getting into the driving seat - but now I'm actually looking forward to my next lesson.

After having very mixed not very successful experiences with instructors previously. I found Simmone, what a difference.

I was very nervous to begin with but with guidance and reassurance I felt very comfortable, the 2 hours went very quickly and looking forward to my next lesson.

I would definitely recommend Simmone to anyone who is nervous or wanting to do automatic.

Thank you so much for teaching me everything I know! 🫶🏻

Simmone is the best instructor out there, a very lovely lady who will go over and over again on topics if there's something you're not sure about.

When I first started my lessons with her I was so nervous and even the thought of being in the driver's seat was scary.

I'm now a very confident driver thanks to all her help.

From: Christine - Swanscombe

I couldn't recommend my instructor Simmone enough.

Such an amazing driving instructor - beyond supportive. I was very nervous to learn after not doing lessons for a while and Simmone was so helpful at reassuring me, completely calm and collected too and really helped calm my nerves throughout the lesson.

She was kind, patient; an excellent communicator, which made learning to drive enjoyable again, and lessons something I'm looking forward to.

I'm definitely looking forwards to taking more lessons with you. Xxx

From: Sophie - Dartford

I have had my first two lessons with Simmone, and she is exactly what I needed in a driving instructor. And I could tell within the first hour.

After not driving for about 7 years after an accident, and being a nervous driver, I now feel I have found the right person to help me get back onto the road.

She is calming, encouraging, and not to mention just a fun and warm person! She has actually somehow managed to make me feel relaxed and that I can conquer the road again. And that isn't an easy task when I thought I would never drive again. A natural teacher!

Can't wait to continue my driving journey and to have her by my side as I do it. With her support I'm excited for each lesson and couldn't ask for more!

Thank you Simmone ⭐

From: Jenny - Belvedere

I had had quite a long break from driving lessons, so was a bit nervous about driving again, but Simmone has a very calming personality and is so encouraging.

I feel like I settled into the lesson really quickly and know that I will gain a lot of confidence in no time!

Looking forward to my next lesson with Simmone, knowing I am in very friendly and safe hands!!

My first lesson, I would grade 10+ of 1-10 scale, not because I did well 🫣😊, but my driving instructor!

Simmone has great personality, clear explanations, all answered questions and lots of patience.

To: Own The Road School Dartford

From: Max - Dartford

I'VE PASSSSSSED!!!!

As someone who has had their fair share of driving instructors, I can confidently say that Simmone is truly one of a kind.

From the moment I met her, I felt at ease and knew that I was in good hands. Her warm personality, adaptability, and genuine connection with her pupils make her stand out among the rest.

Before I began my lessons with Simmone, I had tried other driving schools but never felt truly comfortable behind the wheel. I was always on edge and worried about making mistakes. However, with Simmone, I felt a newfound sense of confidence and calmness. Her teaching style is not only practical but also enjoyable, making the learning process feel effortless.

Simmone's adaptability is a huge asset to her as a driving instructor. She is able to quickly assess her pupils' individual needs and tailor her lessons accordingly. This personalized approach made it easy for me to grasp new concepts and overcome my previous hesitations.

Another quality that sets Simmone apart is her ability to form genuine connections with her pupils. She takes the time to get to know each person, ensuring that the lessons are not only educational but also enjoyable. This personal touch made all the difference for me and is likely one of the reasons why Simmone's pupils tend to be so successful.

In summary, my experience with Simmone as my driving instructor has been nothing short of amazing. Her lovely demeanor, adaptability, and genuine connection with her pupils make her a top-notch instructor.

I have never felt more comfortable and confident behind the wheel, and I owe it all to Simmone.

I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an exceptional driving instructor. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Oh wow! Am ecstatic! Just had my first driving lesson with Simmone.

I had a fantastic and productive first lesson. Thank you for your positive welcome which did put me at ease.

You are calm, patient, good communicating clear instructions, encouraging, reassuring and good at stimulating motivation for one to believe in themselves.

Furthermore, l found your teaching styles motivating in the sense that you allow the learner to be part of, and also to take ownership of, their learning journey while at the same time giving the learner a chance to discuss openly and agree on one's learning goals/target.

I have really enjoyed my first lesson and l can already see myself progressing well. Thanks

My first lesson was amazing - since I had driven before Simmone had to assess me, which I found good. She found my weak spots; she is more involved in the lessons and put it in good words.

Wonderful instructor, friendly but firm, therefore getting things done, and gets you road ready in good time 😊

I had a great first lesson with Simmone. It has been a couple of months since I had a driving lesson. She is so patient, calm makes you feel relaxed when learning to drive when you feel nervous.

From: Louise - Dartford

After 2 postponements due to Covid, I finally passed my test with no minors!

I've always been worried about learning to drive, but Simmone made the whole process comfortable with her laidback, methodical approach.

I'd even go as far as to say I felt confident on the morning of my test, remembering all the hints and tips Simmone had given me over the course of our lessons.

To: Own The Road School Dartford

From: Alexis - Farningham

Just passed my test first time and couldn't be more grateful to Simmone for all the support and training she has given me.

I was a very nervous driver when I first started but quickly felt at ease training with Simmone. Her clear, patient and methodical teaching style was exactly what I needed and helped me develop true confidence behind the wheel.

It is evident Simmone has a genuine passion for what she does and the support she gives to each student to help them succeed. She will always prioritise the student setting the focus of the lesson and everything she does will lead you to, not just passing the test but being safe on the roads when you do.

I am really going to miss my lessons with Simmone but hope to do her proud on the road!


To: Own The Road School Dartford

From: Alfie - Welling

Thankyou for taking me on and giving me the extra lessons I needed to pass my test. As I could already drive I needed guidance and confidence which you gave me.

To: Own The Road School Dartford

From: Shania - Bean

Simmone has been the most amazing driving instructor! I have recently passed my test with her and honestly couldn't recommend her enough.

The encouragement and confidence she has given me is evident when I look back to my first ever lessons.

Her way of teaching will not only push you to be and do your best but in way that you're completely comfortable.

Simmone will not only teach you how to drive but also prepare you for when you pass your test: filling up the car with petrol etc. all important lessons you need to have which many other instructors don't teach.

It's so clear that she loves her job and will put everything into her pupils!

I will miss our lessons lots and lots....hope to stay in touch xoxo

Thank you so much for my first lesson. For somebody with autism I felt extremely anxious before the lesson, but you made me feel very comfortable straight away.

Your patience and understanding helped my confidence grow and as the lesson went on, I got less nervous and started to really enjoy it.

As I'm writing this, I'm really looking forward to my next lesson with you.

Many thanks

From: Sarah ~ Crayford

Today's lesson was absolutely fab! It's been one of my best driving lessons I ever had.

I had driving lessons before and they were horrible! But this was amazing. I felt relaxed which made me feel comfortable and confident in myself which is the main thing when driving!

You also have a progress record sheet which is an excellent idea. I know before my instructor never had that but that's good because it will not only show me, but also you, how I am improving or what needs to be worked on! And we can both go through it.

It was so good I would love to continue to do more driving lessons with you! Thanks 🥰

I managed to pass my driving test, due to Simmone's tailored support, guided practice and drills.

It's important as it doesn't only prepare you just for the test, but beyond that.

You will be comfortable and your confidence will build with Simmone. She's really good for analytical drivers and listens to what you want to achieve.

She always focuses on what you want to get out from your lessons and how to move forwards from errors you are making.

To: Own The Road School Dartford

From: Laura - Bexleyheath

I've recently just passed my driving test first time with Simmone's support!

I started as an anxious driver and Simmone has continued to nurture and support me during our lessons. Helping me to build my confidence and providing me with learning techniques that suited my style of learning.

Simmone has gone above and beyond to help me to pass; giving me the tough love that I needed towards the end closer to my test to get me to work on my weaknesses in driving so I am beyond safe on the road.

Whole experience has been brilliant and although I look forward to the new beginnings driving independently gives me, I am saddened to no longer have my lessons with Simmone as she has become a big support. I will miss our lessons and the calm, safe and fun environment she created in those lessons.

My previous Instructor was pants, but Simmone has been the complete opposite!

Had my first lesson with Own the Road, I was nervous because I wasn't sure what to expect.

Simmone was very friendly and that made me relax. As the lesson went on I became less nervous and really started to enjoy myself.

She explained everything very well and gave very good constructive feedback. I never had that before, so I found it helpful.

I had lost confidence in my driving, but now I am actually looking forward to driving again.

Thank you Simmone.


To: Own The Road School Dartford

First of all thank you Simmone for a great first lesson!

When we met I was nervous as driving is not something that comes naturally to me, but Simmone assured me and gave me confidence in myself!

Simmone is great in explaining things in a simple and clear language, always making sure that I understand and am comfortable.

I can't wait for my next lesson and eventually with Simmones help becoming an independent driver!

Simmone made me feel safe and secure and explained everything in great detail on simple terms.

She is patient and kind and easy to get on with, I believe she will be the instructor to get me where I want to be and I'm looking forward to my next lesson already ☺

I was quite nervous for my first driving lesson but Simmone put me at ease, was patient and made sure I was comfortable.

Would definitely recommend! 😊


To: Own The Road School Dartford

From: Sabina - Erith

I was nervous about starting driving lessons, but Simmone had a useful long chat with me prior to our first session to explore why I felt nervous. This helped a lot to plan how the first session went.

On the day, after arriving at the spot we were going to start the lesson, Simmone first ran through some key introductory guidelines, and gave me a lot of room to ask questions and practice the manoeuvres.

I was very pleasantly surprised at how much I was able to drive during the first lesson (with a lot of help from Simmone of course!). We went down several roads, round corners, negotiated oncoming traffic and practised parking. I also wasn't as nervous as I thought I'd be because Simmone gave calm instructions throughout and was on hand to help with the steering when I needed it.

Simmone is very patient, communicative and put me at ease.

I finally feel like there's hope for me being able to learn how to drive!

Simmone was a fantastic driving instructor on my first lesson.

Simmone offers consistent and constructive feedback after every drive. It is targeted in terms of the focus to the lesson and she helps support your learning to where you need it to go.

You will be comfortable and your confidence will build with Simmone. She's really good for analytical drivers and listens to what you want to achieve.

I had a great first lesson with Simmone, I have been doing lessons on and off for 4 years with another instructor and today is the first time I felt the most comfortable driving.

The lessons are structured and Simmone makes you feel so comfortable behind the wheel.

So thank you so much for an enjoyable lesson! Can not wait for my next one

Amazing instruction! Patient and considerate of concerns.

Made me feel very comfortable behind the wheel and made me excited to get back to driving again after being put off in the past.

Can't wait for the next session!

I really recommend Simmone as an instructor due to her calmness and support which in turn makes me feel relaxed and confident when driving on the road.

She helps you reach the next step and doesn't hold you back when setting a certain goal on a particular lesson or for the future.
